The one i got was really poorly made, weaving wasn't done properly so it poked through the lining. they also used a super cheap ugly drawstring unlike the picture and it was a total eyesore,. i think most LL knockoff sellers buy the real bag to use as the stock photo to trick you.
tbh, the real staw bags are quite delicate and i only use mine every once in a while.

How do you guys find those replicas? I remember buying an awesome Acne scarf replica in 2016 which I wanted to post here, but it's not available anymore & searching for "Acne Studios" didn't work either.
I often find cosmetic knockoffs, though. I tried some of the sheet masks & hand lotions (mostly Tonymoly "inspired") and liked them a lot. https://nl.aliexpress.com/store/2944078?spm=a2g0x.10010108.1000023.17.3bd9337eEPQ3fX

I get most of mine from ali threads on r/repladies and reverse image search on the app. I've gotten a few gems from fb groups but they're mostly full of crap. It used to be much easier to find reps but they've cracked down over the last few years. I only had this link because I've had it saved in my favorites for months.
you don't have to have the design, why not just get a cheaper nicer bag like >>224225
is saying. most knockoffs have the fake hardware logo or logos printed all over them too. people buy brand name explicitly for conspicuous consumption purposes so you can get off your pathetic high horse about ~impress who~ and all that.

That's the one I meant, thanks! I highly recommend it, even my mom (who hates cheap clothes and usually knows when something is not high-quality) complimented it. And wow, I've been addicted to AliExpress for soo long and I didn't know about the reverse image search. Will try it asap!
To contribute: I recently got interested in cooking Japanese and ordered lots of bento & onigiri utensils from AliExpress. Last thing I got was this Tamagoyaki pan.
Rule of thumb; Never order anything from AliExpress if you need it within 3 months
Otherwise it's fine
i usually get stuff in 1 month or less.>>224328
tbh buying stuff from rakuten or ebay also runs you that risk. i've never bought anything made in china like that really, but places other than aliexpress have the same unregulated stuff, shipped from china. idk about buying a takoyaki pan tho tbh, they cost like $10 for japanese brand. no clue how much anon spent on hers…

I would check reviews first to see if people's experiences are good. It depends on how your skin usually reacts to cosmetics since the materials won't be very good
However they may not be cruelty free (and most probably they aren't vegan), as pic related explains
Don't recommend the resin pigment as one I had leaked everywhere and dyed everything the other one dried up.
The UV resin is excellent though and I'm still happily using a 18 month old bottle. The decoden whip was also absolutely fine.
the cream is probably fine.
I recommend below resin pigments which I own already. Well packaged and don't leak/dry out. https://fr.aliexpress.com/item/KiWarm-13Pcs-10g-Epoxy-UV-Resin-Coloring-Dye-Colorant-Pigment-DIY-Handmade-Crafts-Art-Sets-13/32826561487.html
To get the pearl color you're better off getting some of that opal nail powder instead since it's way cheaper.https://fr.aliexpress.com/item/Nouveau-Nail-Poudre-N-on-Miroir-glitter-Miroir-Effet-Arc-En-Cristal-Opale-NO03/32839336857.html
The UV resin you linked is pretty good, but a little on the thick side so you need to shake it and having an emboss heater to smooth it out is important.
Let me know if you need anything else! I have good links for bezels and molds.
Thank you so so much !>>287410

Here's some good stores:
DCC store you linked in your post.
This store is good, they have a lot of design sheets. Though I've found the sheets are too thick for a clear background. Search resin because the categories are hard to follow.https://gladzgt.aliexpress.com/store/2785130
Also really good for resin stuff and findings/jewelry making, just search resin because I can't figure out the term here either.https://mizukagami0.aliexpress.com/store/2054001
This store has a ton of stuff too really nice antique style settings, charms and bezelz and other cool metal parts for resin work.https://sweetbellshangchen.aliexpress.com/store/915987?spm=0.89374126.96.36.199dc2e0eI5aBsc
Good for sweets deco and stuff because it has tons of mini cups and polymer sticks.https://www.aliexpress.com/store/1850556
Also, anon, would you want to add on discord? I'm super into both sweets deco stuff and resin and would love to share stuff without shitting up the thread.
Their trustpilot score is pretty good. Aliexpress is the western version of alibaba, which is (one of?) the biggest online retailer(s) in china. They're legit. It's like amazon, but with only marketplace sellers. Individual sellers can be shitty but as long as you look at their store feedback and only buy from reliable ones, you should be fine.
I've bought dozens of things and the few times I've had problems I've been able to settle it directly with the seller over dms, or have gotten a refund from aliexpess.
aliexpress is the same as ebay or rakuten. just order from sellers with feedback on either the product you're ordering or their store/other products. it's not that scary or unsafe.
just don't order makeup/skincare. everything else is fine.

Soooo am I the only douchebag who disputes everything and gets refunded for most of it?
This stuff is actually expensive for how poor quality it is if you actually paid for it lmao.

Most of them don’t track right to your house and buyer protection is like 60 days and they usually legit take longer. It helps if you never spend over $15 and only buy cheap shit so they don’t pay for tracking to house.
You sound like the same piece of shit that claims their food sucked at a restaurant to get discounts. There's no need for that. these are usually tiny sellers and they cant risk having their accounts set down >>287106
skin care or makeup should be off the table. this is something you are putting on your face. it's always better to check and get quality from an approved seller, even if it's western or korean. I would not trust aliexpress anything for face
do you want like a super traditional one anon or one of the more modern ones?
also don't worry about "refund anon" she's probably lying, those cheap shipping methods don't actually let you dispute against them and aliexpress is super seller friendly unlike amazon and ebay and such. it's extremely hard to win disputes.
also, chargebacks are what get your account banned, not so much disputes.

Cheapskate anon here. I’m not lying. As long as you spend under $15 aliexpress will always give your money back. But tbh I don’t really use aliexpress anymore so it might have changed.
I have thousands worth of free shit from eBay. My whole house is full of free eBay shit down to my security camera system. >>288673>no better than tumblr shoplifters

Reviving this thread now that 11-11 prices are out. What will you be buying this year anons?
enjoy your "boutique" clothing that's actually just re-branded $5 chinese shit.
God that's some real fuckin salt lol…
Are you like some rich girl that has a personal tailor? Because unless you are…
Most shit is Chinese made crap. Even fancy H&M "boutique" shit. Actually, especially that fancy "boutique" shit. Its all marketing. Some mass manufactured designs are definitely better than others. At the end of the day, its all shit from China or guatemala or wherever the fuck probably made by child slaves.
I'd rather buy a piece of "knockoff" Chinese crap that looks and feels pretty much the damn same as the shit i have to spent upwards of 50$ on because its "nice" instead of waste my life on being salty about one Chinese piece of shit over the other.
Aliexpress has a lot of problems and a lot of things are definitely "fall apart as soon as you touch it" bad, but you spend like, 3 bucks on it, vs. The mark up of some of this shit and then having wasted 100 bucks just to find out its shit. And some of it is really nice!
Now if anyone has some nice, cutesy but sort of sophisticated clothing and accessories, I'm game for recommendations instead of shitting up the thread with salt that's basically "lel poorfag."
and this is basically what i was trying to say. like, just the other day my friend came across this jacket she just had to have, allegedly from a small "boutique" in montreal, cost $150, found the same jacket on aliexpress for $20, just without the fake fur trim, added a few snaps and there you go, same jacket.
people just don't understand that much of the shit on aliexpress isn't cheap because it's crappy, it's cheap because that's how much it costs before i buy it and sell it at my shop at the mall for 4x the price.
Oh man read that wrong sorry about that lol.
People just get so mad about things like aliexpress and it really comes off as this like weird thing that they have to because if they don't they wasted a shitload of money for basically nothing.
Get used to it babes that's capitalism.

take clothes that are oversized on purpose. The site has many Harajuku inspired pieces, and they're so damn cute! You take an xxl and it fits however it comes, just with a pair of skinny jeans or leggings
I'm dumb for forgetting to sage, but now that this thread is once again active
Post your favourite aliexpress stores!
I'm dumb for forgetting to sage, but now that this thread is once again active
Post your favourite aliexpress stores!
Sage but you don't have to be rich to not buy from China. Especially if you live in a rather big country, you can easily find locally made stuff for slightly more than what you'd buy from H&M but nothing outrageous. And on top of that you'd support local business.
Or you can buy high fashion second hand. I got a nice brand bag for a fraction of the price (~100€) and it's lasting me forever, compared to a bag I'd get for 20€ that would start to peel and turn grey super fast.
Of course if you want a kawaii heart bag with pompoms or a burger shaped beret you'll wear twice, go for it and buy it on aliexpress.
never trust the sellers. i got a bogus tracking number, it said "delivered" so when i filed a dispute, i lost. The thing is, normally the tracking will say when it reaches customs or something but it just said "arrived in destination country" and then delivered. No city names were stated. The seller kept saying to check with my post people and that maybe my neighbors picked it up but here i need the senders info, which they refused to give and instead claimed they were refunding me but never did. So i lost $16 and because i disputed it and lost the dispute, i couldnt/cant even give a negative feedback.
To be a little fair, it really could have been my lazy post people leaving it next to mailboxes and one of my neighbors stealing it, but because i was home the weekend it said it was delivered and the fact delivery date was sunday (which is not possible) and never stated any city names really makes me think it was fake or someone else tracking number.

I dont think that anon is trying to brag, they've got a point. It's better to invest in a good sturdy bag than a cheap $20 one that would fall apart after a couple of uses.
I think aliexpress is really good for stationary and socks etc.., but purses are super hit or miss. With that said here's some weeb stuff that I ordered a while ago if anyone wants links/reviews
How is that wig? Is it lace front?

Nail oil pen. I saw the one SimplyNailLogical made, and I wanted one too but I can't easily get the products to my country so I bought this one.
It's not really oil I think. It feels really nice when you apply it and smell alright, but when it dries a bit it dries your skin out so much. I quietly stopped when I saw it made my cuticles worst.

thigh high tights. I bought them because it said they had a reach of 173 cm. I'm 170 cm so I thought these would be tall enough (I bought ones before but they where too short). They do fit after some squeezing. I'm probably too fat because when I sat down and folded my legs something ripped. Not really the thighs fault.
I will not buy any tights any more because Asian sizes just don't work for my fat-ass. I bought other thigh high tights from ASOS which fitted perfectly.
simply nailogical is a fucking hack, anon.
also you only should use cuticle oil when you push and file near the cuticle while doing your nails. it's not meant to be used more than once every week at the most.

I fucking love this dress. It was so cheap but it's perfect. It made from this kind of weird fabric (it says cotton mix, but it's more viscose-like). But because of that it falls perfectly on me. Because of the fabric the dress pulls down a little bit and that makes the chest area come out real good and shapely. For me the dress widens around my stomach, so perfect for hiding all the ugliness.
I can't seem to pair them with leggings, I don't know what it is, maybe the fabric clash but it always looks bad when I do. Summer dress with nothing under it looks best.
I didn't know that, thanks!
Also, why is she a hack?
sorry for ot. but she has a ton of reliance on products and promos rather than giving general tutorials. i don't really like nail channels that focus too much on only being able to use specific products.
a good example is her "why you're using loose glitter wrong" video, where she's just promoting a product (a shitty one at that) and doesn't actually explain how to do it without the product.
NTA but that's fucking retarded. There's no to be fair about her having a nail channel
and leaving her shitty sponsored tutorials up to confused new nail artists.

this is the one of the only things I've ordered from Aliexpress (ordered with a friend who swears by it) and it was pretty disappointing. I love big loose off shoulder sweaters and this thing was basically a normal sweater. it didn't have all the reviews about how small it ran back when I ordered.
oh I also ordered a dragon hoodie like a year ago which did actually fit well and looked nice, but lost it moving.>>319547
stop shitting up the thread with your unsaged posts.
er, anon, most of them are the same as F21 entirely, made in the same factories, only with no tags.
do you seriously think F21 is better quality??

The D-day is coming closer anons! Hope your basket is already filled with cute items like pic related.
Ali clothing may not be worth it but stationery and home stuff totally is
NTA, but yea. Lol I've gotten literal garbo from AliExpress, ill-fitting or shit in this weird cheap polyester shiny fabric. Forever 21 isn't great, but at least I know what I'm getting. Sellers on Ali either leave details out or lie outright.
That being said, I love AliExpress for cheap crap, like stickers and ankle socks. Stuff that is hard to screw up. Everything else is a mixed bag, and I honestly prefer buying secondhand brands to buying new on Ali.
>er, anon, most of them are the same as F21 entirely, made in the same factories, only with no tags.
Eh. Not true, but kinda true. Just because they both come from China doesn't mean they come from the same factory. I've seen crap from older collections of Zara/ASOS/H&M get sold on Ali, stolen photos and everything. A lot of Korean brand stuff too get their photos stolen. You can tell by the specific brand's photography style and because the product is even shittier than the original photo. But I've also seen known Taobao/Ali generic brand stuff being sold at a markup in malls. I usually do a lot of searching and shopping around before I commit to a buy, including reverse image searching, so I hope that makes me less likely to get ripped off.
I've been buying from Ali for years, so I would hope that means I know a thing or two…
Idk if it matters, but just letting you know it's not just you. The stockings on there are pretty awful. I once got a pair of "thigh high" stockings that were over-the-knee at best (I'm 5'5") and I had pretty skinny legs. They got a fucking run in them just from walking around and sitting.
ASOS is ok, but also check out Sock Dreams and American Apparel if you're looking for stockings or thigh highs.
Rosetic store and Punk Rave have storefronts at ali.
Sorry for the late reply.
Yikes to this thread infighting.
I've yet to have a very bad experience, and I've bought quite a bit of stuff. Most of my problems have been from clothing, which I was already iffy about buying in the first place. I bought a sweater that had the seams spit the second time I wore it, and it was "one size fits all," so it wasn't me being too big for it; it was actually really comfy. I also bought a t-shirt with a meme printed on it. The fit was very weird, the material was see-through, and the print was really weak and faded. I haven't worn it and it still sits in my closet, it also came with a small stain I didn't mind, but it's actually become darker and very noticeable now that it's been sitting there. I think I might sew it into a shopping bag or use the print as a patch.
I also bought a bra set, it was decent quality but stunk chemically. It was also too small, not my size. I could get in on, but it clearly fit differently than on the model, darker material too. I sold it for a dollar less than I paid for it, so no major loss.
I mostly just buy those dainty necklaces, enamel pins, and keyboard covers with different languages on them for Duolingo.
