Hautelook Haul

Who hasn't heard of hautelook before?


If you haven't, Hautelook is a private discount online store. They have a variety of merchandise ranging from clothes, toys, furniture, jewelery, beauty products, etc. These sells only last 2 days, and everyday there are new sales. There are also a wide variety of brands, I've seen Dior, Nyx, Urban Decay, Stila, Michael Todd, Juicy Couture, Betsey Johnson, among others

I joined Hautelook a couple months ago, my only reason was to buy discounted makeup. On November 1st they had an Urban Decay Event, and I was quite late for the event (about 2 hours) and there were certain items that were already sold out. Therefore I only ordered 3 items.


Urban Decay Summer of Love Nailpolish set


Urban Decay Matte Eyeshadow : Electric, and Purple Haze.


So you can get an idea of how much chaper the products are I will give you the prices. Urban Decay E/S are $17 ea. I got these for $4.25, The n/p set retails at $28 and I got it for $7. (US dollars). The discount is pretty good.

Here are swatches for the eyeshadows

Left to Right: Electric, Purple Haze


All of the products are brand new and authentic. The reason they are so cheap is because Hautelook is "the middle guy" when you place an order they send it to the manufacturer's warehouse, then they send the order to the hautelook warehouse and then they send it to you.
That being said shipping takes forever!

As I mentioned, I placed my order on November 1st, received an email with my tracking number on the 17th. The email said it was going to arrive that same day, well it didn't. It arrived 3 weeks after. To be honest I was kind of pissed because the tracking number they gave me was never updated, and their costumer service is horrible, they will just tell you to wait.

I do not know if I'll ever order from Hautelook again just because of the shipping. They would have to have an amazing sale for me to want to buy once again from them.

  1. Thanks for this blogpost. Many of the brands you mentioned I can't purchase online where I live and the AUS dollar in comparison to the US dollar is crazy when it comes to purchasing items/products here. Will give that site a look.
