In this post i am giving my two cents on How to Apply liquid foundation using Brush , Sponge or anything in between.

Website Review & shopping experience - wholesale7

I was thrilled when i got my order from wholesale7.net few weeks ago and couldn't wait to share my experience with you guys . But i thought of testing these bag before i post my reviews. This is the second time i ordered from an Asian online clothing wholesaler that sells super cheap clothes, shoes and accessories.




wholesale7.net  mainly focus on international trading Japanese and Korean copy styles  producing and selling, most of styles are copied from latest fashion magazines and some others professional latest fashion magazine website. .They accept payment via money gram, PayPal and Western Union and money transfer. They don't have facility of payment through credit cards.


So first bag which i knew i wanted to have in my collection was Women Vintage Zip up Solid Color One Shoulder Satchel Bag in rose color $11.84 . Now onto the bag i received , Its beautiful. It is very pink and very girlish. But it is somewhat similar to the design shown on the website but not exactly same. In the photos it also looks but bigger and bulkier . But the version i got is not bad itself.i ove the suede on the front and pink itself is gorgeous It is very lightweight and medium size makes it easier to carry.The bag comes in three color black ,blue & rose . his item is currently out of stock. What i love about this bag is that , It is well made. The bag i ordered from Wholesale-dress.net started to fall into pieced after a week of gentle usage but so far i am happy with this . It comes with golden hardware which i adore.This bag has a number of compartments inside making it easy for organization.




The second item i chose was a rather an edgy piece Rhinestone PU Clutch Purse Bag  $6.57 . Yes you read it right , it says clutch, purse and bag (seems like all in one kind of thingies) Now this Now this Studded Wristlet looks exactly like the photos .Infact if i have to choose a favorite among this and pink bag , i might choose this. Because its not hardcore studded but its just right enough to make a statement piece . I love the double zipper compartments and dont be fooled by the size , this baby can hold all your brunch with girl friends or night out essentials.



So now Overall i am really happy with the things i got.  I absolutely love the bags. The hardware on both is solid and i can see myself using these two bags a lot in future. It took almost 7-10 days to get my items once they were shipped. The shipping is expensive e.g for two bags by China Post Air Mail it was $16.15 and by EMS $28.10  . If i added more items , it could go up. Will i recommend this site : It depends what are you buying ? I will recommend checking out reviews and ask question about the products .Ask as any questions as you can where ever i have to to about actual color, bag straps , fabric, size ,and even materials. Do take your time in ordering. I read not  so good reviews on the clothing and the shoes categories but i will suggest you to check out their bags and jewellery items.Shipping is expensive but atleast its reliable and trackable. You can find more details here on  payment and shipping http://www.wholesale7.net/payment_a11.html .They accept payment via money gram, PayPal and Western Union and money transfer. They don't have facility of payment through credit cards which is big problem of Us , Pakistani but hopefully in near future they will start taking cards.
