Yes, delete the app from your device. They will send you stuff you looked at! Bought a $7 item, was charged $97. Turns out everything I looked at, they billed me for and shipped. I only got $70 back.

DO NOT BUY FROM THIS COMPANY. This is cheap manufactured in China. God only knows what heavy metals, carcinogens, toxins or poison are in the makeup. Minimum delivery time greater than 1 month. Cheap crap.

I have purchased one order. It contained 15 items, no makeup..but makeup brushes & applicators. The brushes & applicators were fine everything else I got was Garbage!!! I never buy makeup from China there are too many studies saying its dangerous. You can purchase good quality, decent priced bare minerals, mally, laura Geller on eBay! Its going on your skin..its the one place I wouldn't skimp. I definitely wouldn't buy makeup from Wish All their products Are Directly From China...All the packages say so. I have asked for a refund on almost every piece of clothing I was sent! Hope this helped. Take care.

I would never buy anything from this website. I wasted about $50 on total crap. Nothing I purchased was as it appeared to be. iTunes should be ashamed this is an app that they offer and I suspect there will at some point be a class action lawsuit against this company. And cosmetics with potentially harmful ingredients is not what you want to be applying anywhere near your face. Order from Nordstrkm where you can return items you aren't satisfied with, absolutely no questions asked.

I would advise against that! Mainly because the make up is made over seas where they have very low standards in production, and that makeup will contain mass quantities of lead and other chemicals you definitely do NOT want to be putting on your body.

Would recommend strongly that you don't. Expect to wait 4 weeks for delivery, with NO ability to track - and at the end of the day - you will have highly "questionable" products with which to experiment - You get to be your own guinea pig...

You may want to reconsider, these are very poor quality items from China. You do not know what is in the products.
Purchases three items. Waited 12 weeks to get them and they are total garbage

I have never bought make up from this site, but I suggest when you pay to use PayPal as your method of payment. Some people have said their info has been stolen when they used a credit/debit card. I have always used PayPal, as it is a more secure method of payment, and I have never ran into an issue where my payment info was stolen. Hope this helps!

Purchase from a reputable site or company. It will take forever to receive, and will not be what you expected.

Yes, just don't do it!!! the aliexpress app does the same thing that the wish app does, and they're a lot more communicative. I hope this helps

I would be very careful and use Pay Pal which gives you some protection. THIS SITE IS DEFINATELY A BUYER BE WARE site try something that you don't really care if you get or not. I did get a refund on the tops I ordered that were poor quality and way different to the 1st one I bought but only refunded the tops not the postage and even if you order 2 items at the same stall (for want of a better word) they will charge postage on each and every item. Good luck

Im not sure about the make up but ive purchased some items that were okay. You have to be so careful because a lot of these online items are from china. Not only does it take a month to receive it but its always the wrong size or a whole different item.

I haven't ordered make up, but I have ordered jewelry, purses and some clothing. ALWAYS read the reviews others have left. If it is poor quality, people will have commented. I have received every one of the 50 plus items I have ordered, and some I have gotten for free. If something has taken too long to arrive, and they have trouble tracking, they will ask you if you want to wait or want a refund but you can keep the items if they come, and they always have. I ordered a $75 purse. Didn't start using it for several months and then the zipper broke. Took a picture with the broken zipper and within an hour, as usual, had confirmation that a credit would be issued. Never had a problem with the company.

I have not ordered makeup. I would stick to name brands that I know are safe to put on my face. As far as the orders, I have received mine okay.

If people "pay" attention, they'll get exactly what they order. Their bank gets charged immediately, only after the order is confirmed. Most likely people can't read properly and don't pay attention, then they have their OH$#*!WHATHAVEIDONE moments and blame the company.

Thanks for letting me know that because my mother use her credit card when she bought two items from this site and we still have not yet received them so I better get her to check her account and make sure that they're not charging her for something that she did not buy or receive

To be safe, I suggest you NEVER order from Wish.com. I've heard far too many different complaints, about both quality and stolen money, as well as possibly never receiving your order. I'd most certainly not buy makeup from them, as the company claims they're based in the US, but they are in CHINA. Not only will their products not have safety regulations on them, but if you do have a bad experience with them, it will be extremely difficult to get any kind of refund from them, particularly if the item DOES get received, because the shipping to return it is so expensive it isn't even worth it.
Please do yourself a favour and purchase makeup from a legitimate retailer.

I have bought a lot from WISH. I always avoid buying anything you put on your skin or consume from overseas. There are no real regulations or standards to what they put in their products and because your skin is your largest organ it will absorb whatever you put on it.

Well yes I bought several things from them. Got everything I ordered but something were pictured differently than arrived. Three things I got were way disappointing but the eight other things I bought were just fine. So its really a hit miss thing. I read the comments and the factory reviews and descriptions before I ordered some of the things were not even talking about what they ordered. Yes there was some bad reviews. I have not decided if I will order again or not cause delivery took forever and it was all from overseas. Hope I helped

Make up is a fair bet. But also keep the orginal packaging if you are 6 happy with the product they will give you refund but you have to pay the shipping costs stay on them thou.

I got all the items I ordered, more than 20, it just takes time.
In terms of make up it's not advised to buy any made in China because some of the components are cancer causing agents.

I've gotten mascara and lip stain from there and they were both great quality. Be sure to look for pictures that users have uploaded and check out the reviews before making a purchase !
