Shopping on Wish!

Friday, July 27, 2018


I've heard a lot about Wish while watching art haul videos and YouTube. The website stocks a lot of art supplies, makeup, accessories, apparel and to my surprise, tarot related products too!

After discovering Wish, I immediately wanted to order something for myself. At first, I was browsing through endless watercolour products then I ogled at their enamel pins, then their plus-sized blouses and I knew that I just needed to get something otherwise my wishlist would just keep growing.

I would have loved to order more but the shipping costs were insane! Depending on the retailer, I've seen shipping prices from as low as RM7 to as high as RM17! Which brings me to one of the cons of ordering from this website, free items are not really free. You still have to pay for shipping.



Another thing I didn't like about Wish was the fact that many of the items here are fakes. So, if you're planning to purchase branded items like shoes or makeup, please keep in mind the prices on Wish are super low for a reason. Not everything here is genuine. It really doesn't matter to me though, as long as the item I ordered arrives safely and not super effed up, I have minimal complaints.

Now, on to my haul!



The first things I ordered were the tarot decks (The Wild Unknown and Shadowscapes tarot) and the crystal necklace. I will have a more in-depth review of the tarot decks in following posts so I will just review the "quartz" crystal necklace.



It looks really pretty and the chain that comes with it is nice and durable. The only thing that kind of annoyed me was the fact that I thought I was purchasing a necklace that's not even made of real quartz but resin when the product listing literally says natural gemstone. Pfft... Natural gemstone my a**. Then again, I knew what I was getting into... The pendant is pretty and comfortable to wear. So whatever... 😂

My next order consisted of 2 "Life Planners" and a set of Sakura micron pens. The planners are beautiful and are a really good quality. Plus, they are not designed for a specific year so you can start using them anytime in the year with no problems!

The planners also have thick paper and really cute designs on each, as you can see below.







The only thing that bummed me out was the fact that the white planner was slightly damaged and had a dirty bookmark ribbon. How the heck did it get like this?!





The Sakura micron pens were ridiculously affordable and understandably so. They look exactly like the genuine micron pens from Sakura. I couldn't see a difference physically and all of them arrived safely. In fact, each pen was wrapped in their own individual package inside a larger package. Talk about secure.

The only complaint I have about these pens is the fact that they are not waterproof like the actual Sakura pens. I was planning on using them with my watercolour but that is definitely not happening. I mean, I guess you can use them with watercolour but you can't do your line work before painting because the black ink will just make your colours look muddy and ew.

To recap, here are the pros and cons of shopping on Wish.

Pros:

Cheap prices
A wide range of items
Fast delivery

Cons:

Lots of fake items
Misleading prices
Some items aren't wrapped securely

Overall, I did have a good experience shopping on Wish. I didn't have any problems with checking out or with lost packages but I don't think I will be shopping on Wish again anytime soon. The shipping fees are a little too high for me. Although I might grab something if I find something I can't get anywhere else on Malaysian websites.

Have you tried shopping on Wish? Would you try it out?
