And here’s the haul post. First, the obligatory picture of the pile of packages.
So many packages! Lots of fun. I did open them to check what they were, but I didn’t take anything out or have a proper look until I had all of them. Now let’s go in the same order as the shopping haul.
Item 1: pencils
Wish is on the left, and AliExpress is on the right.
The AliExpress pencils feel a little nicer in the hand, but they’re all pretty similar. They’re pencils. The Wish set had 2 labelled 2H, but we’ll wait for the swatching post before I decide if it’s a dupe or not.
Item 2: erasers
Again, Wish on the left and AliExpress on the right.
There is literally nothing to say about these. They are exactly the same product.
Item 3: sharpeners
The one from Wish doesn’t look like the ones in the listing, but it is the same shape so I’m not too bothered.
Item 4: pens
Like the pencils, the AliExpress ones feel ever so slightly nicer in the hand.
Item 5: colouring pencils
Neither of these packages did well in transit.
But the pencils themselves appeared to be undamaged. They might have shattered leads, but I wouldn’t find out about that until swatching time. There was a pencil missing from the Wish packet too.
That’s it for the haul post. Next week is the post you all really care about – the swatching 🙂
