Since i started working one fine day i went alone to aries to shop alone after work.there was very few people and the store was abouy to close .suddenly there was three staffs rudely glare at me making me uneasy...then when i was about to leave the store the three rude staff roughly approach me and shouted....stop there !! I was stunned and suddenly they accuse me of stealing a necklace an demand to search my bag which they have no right as they are not the police and i have not done anything. They were trying to frame me without reason....
Their designs aren't the sort of minimalist style, even though they aren't elaborate. Some of their designs are decent but aren't eye-catching. Their necklaces are more useful to me though. Whenever I have a nice shirt and need a necklace that doesn't catch attention, Aries can offer at least some designs that may match my clothes.
Overall, Aries isn't bad. But they barely stand out from the ever-growing crowd of accessory shops for girls.
Everything there is really affordable. From hair accessories to nail polish to face paint aka cosmetics, it was simply beauty galore during my school days.
However, as I matured, my expectations of the things which I spend on was also raised. LIke most of the past reviewers, I didn't see much promise in the affordable accessories which were pretty much one-time use or they had high tendency to break under slightly rougher usage.
They still have a wide range of fashion and beauty products there, but I frequent Sasa nowadays to fulfill my beauty needs.
I have never tried their cosmetics as they are really too cheap and I do not dare to try them. Because I am allergic to certain types of metals, I do not buy their earrings and necklaces too. Though they are really cheap, like $3 for a pair of decent looking earrings, they look pretty flimsy.
Their hair accessories which include hair bands, hair clips, rubber bands, hair ties, combs, pins, etc are what attracts me to the shop. They've got a huge variety of colors, designs and sizes. Literally a shop where you can find everything you need for your hair. Not to mention, they are sold at really affordable prices too.
The accessories that I buy from Aries usually fall apart within months. One necklace that I bought even came undone by itself while I was walking, much to my irritation. I can get cheap accessories at Forever 21 too, and get much better quality. Although Aries deserves praise for selling its accessories at such affordable prices, it should not neglect its quality - I am sure consumers are willing to pay for better quality.
The prices of the jewelleries varies pretty much though, there are earrings going for as cheap as around $1 as well as necklances priced over $10. I would say that the jewelleries available are not the prettiest you can find around but if you spend some time looking through the collections you may be lucky enough to find a lovely one. Warning though, most of the jewelleries are not of the best quality. Once i bought a pair of earrings and it broke after one day.
As for the cosmetics, I wouldn't dare to buy them as they do not appear to be very safe and credible. I presume most of these cosmetics are cheap low quality imports judging by their appearance. However I did buy nail polish from Aries before at around $2.50 and the quality is nowhere comparable to those you can buy at Sasa for the same price.
So, it wasn't a very enjoyable experience buying their earrings. I recommend buying hairclips there instead. Nevertheless, I suggest it is good to apply for membership so that it is more worth it as every purchase is entitled to a 10% discount.
However, these are often of low quality and tend to spoil easily. Those items with rhinestones in them usually cost more, but yet, the quality isn't good. I bought a hairpin with rhinestones a while back, and the gems started to fall after a few times wearing it!
For those who seek good quality goods, Aries isn't the place for you.
The price range is also very reasonable, except for the items that have the “Imported from Korea” stickers on them. Those tend to be quite expensive, about $10+. I like to buy their simple earrings because these can be quite cheap, around $2-3 a pair for very cute, simple designs appropriate for school. However, the quality is not spectacular as the pattern breaks off the stud quite easily. The earrings are also prone to mold despite my removing them before bathing so I have to clean them very often.
The hair accessories are generally nice but the range is small. They are all quite normal designs such as hairbands with bows or flowers attached. The hair ties are also very normal, with no particularly outstanding designs hence I have not purchased any of these from the shop.
Overall, shopping at Aries is quite a pleasant experience for me because the staff do not follow you around and they are also quite friendly.
I wandered around the store aimlessly for a while, glancing over the products. They seemed cheaply made and of low quality, and there wasn't anything that I particularly liked. I did manage to pick up some of the more simple hair accessories though. I purchased a few bundle packs of coloured hairbands- necessities for school.
I'll give it this though - the prices of the products are extremely low. Probably to match the quality, but well, it sure is a place to visit for cheap-hair-accessories junkies.
