REALLY AMAZON?!? Testing $18 Amazon Essentials Leggings | Squat Test FAIL

REALLY AMAZON?!? Testing $18 Amazon Essentials Leggings | Squat Test FAIL


– What’s up guys and
welcome back to my channel. So I recently reviewed
a brand called Core 10, which is an Amazon brand of leggings. And I was just scrolling my Instafeed and Amazon was targeting me
with legging ads, you know. I wonder why? And I ended up finding out that Amazon has their Amazon Essentials
brand that makes leggings. So I was like, okay, well if these Core 10 Amazon
brand was pretty good, maybe these’ll be good too. So I got two different styles of leggings. I got a high rise legging. I don’t know if these are the high rise. Think these are not high rise. These are the high rise. So I got a high rise legging and I got a medium rise legging. So I wanted to test
these out for you guys, to see if these can maybe be some cheap Lululemon style dupes. They do kinda look like a
Lululemon style legging. Which really just means they
look like a basic legging. But yeah, I just wanted to
test these out for you guys. See if they’re worth it. So first, let’s start with
the high rise legging, because, let’s me honest, who
likes medium rise leggings? So these are called the High
Rise 7/8 Performance Legging. So they are insinuating
that these would be good for working out kind of thing. I do like a good seven-eighths length. I feel like it frees up your ankle, and then you don’t have the
bunching around your ankle. These come in black, burgundy,
charcoal, olive and navy. And I got it in the burgundy color. They’re made of a polyester spandex blend, and these are supposed to
have a three-layer waist band. Which, I could see that. I could see that these are three layers. But also guys, these are so thin. They’re so thin. They’re like literally, you
can see my nails through it. These feel like a very, I dunno, you can kinda see, a little flimsy. They got four stars on Amazon, so I guess people kinda liked ’em. And these are $18 with Amazon Prime, so definitely around the price range that I find a lot of
other Amazon leggings. So, we’re not, you know, they couldn’t be all,
they don’t have to be bad, just because they’re cheap. But they are, very, I dunno, I dunno how these are gonna be. The logo just looks like, I guess this is the Amazon
Essentials logo or something. It just looks like these
little lines/box kinda dude. So yeah, why don’t we just try
these on and see how it goes. So, by the way, in terms of sizing, they come in size extra
small to extra extra large, and I wouldn’t say that they
exactly fit true to size. Here, I’m gonna put this up a little bit. I am not going to show
my whole body in this, because this about the leggings, you know. So, as you can see, I am
almost always a small. And this, it’s a lot
of waistband going on. They feel very thin. As opposed to a lot of other
Amazon leggings I’ve tried, these actually feel cheap. Like they actually feel
like they were cheaply made. In terms of squat proofness, I guess, oh that look’s kinda sheer. I wouldn’t be surprised. That’s, yeah, that’s sheer, so. Yeah, so now that I’m watching
the squat test on these, these are probably some
of the most sheer leggings I’ve ever seen. And it’s just not okay. Literally what? You can see my entire butt. These are not performance leggings. They were specifically
labeled as performance, so that you could work out in them. Do not work out in these leggings. Everyone will see, it’s
like why even wear pants? Why even wear pants if
you’re gonna wear these? To give some perspective, the 13 dollar fake Flex leggings, I got on AliExpress were much more squat proof than these. These are the worst I’ve ever seen. Um, they’re not squat proof. Camel toe, it’s kinda hard to tell. I guess there’s no camel
toe, so that’s good. But I’m pretty underwhelmed by these. I just, this isn’t very cute. I got my normal size. I’m literally, if anything I’m
between a small and medium, so the fact that these are
too big definitely size down if you want these. But like, I dunno, they’re pretty sheer, and as you can see, they
got that kinda shiny fabric, but not compression. And I feel like in a lighter color, they would definitely show cellulite. So I feel like these are just kinda cheap, and not great. So, it’s a no for me. The next legging are the
Performance full length leggings. And these are definitely
a medium rise waist band. Same logo on the back. I got these in the olive color. Yeah, they have the same colors. I got them in the olive color, and this really looks like a, I thought it was black
when it came actually, I was like, I didn’t
remember ordering black, but it’s just a very very dark olive. So keep that in mind for the olive. It’s not like a classic green olive. It’s like a dark charcoal olive almost. These are also $18 and
they have 4.5 stars. So perhaps they’re a little better. Maybe people just order them more. I don’t really know. Okay, let’s try them on. So, the fabric on these
definitely feels thicker, but it’s still feels really really cheap. Wouldn’t recommend, though, yeah these are definitely a
mid rise, below belly button. They just really did not do a
good job on these waist bands. There’s such a thick band at the top. I don’t know if you can see that, but there’s definitely a thick
piece of elastic at the top, that they could have done a
lot better job of hiding that. If this is is still a small,
and there’s still some gaping, so these would definitely fall down if I was working out in them. Camel toe probably not. I don’t love this color. I feel like it was supposed
to be kind of an olive, but it really looks gray. Yeah, the seams already look
like they have a little, stuff going on. Feels cheap again. Definitely feels like a different
fabric from the other one, but not great. Squat proof? It’s like, I guess I’ll check later. But that still looks sheer. So, ooh, okay. I guess the moral of the story is that Amazon is not a bad place to buy leggings, but the Amazon brand is not a great place. You can get $22 Colorfulkoala leggings that are 10 times the quality of these for two extra dollars. So, yeah, in terms of
cheap Amazon leggings, definitely don’t go for these. These are not, there are so many other high quality $20 Amazon leggings. I will list a few below for you guys. Queenie Ke is great. Colorfulkoala is great. Olacia, I did a review
for them, they’re great. Amazon Basics, eh, No, no. So, save your money. Don’t get these leggings. Not worth it. Don’t know what those
reviews are talking about, but these are thin, flimsy, no. So thank you guys so much for watching. And I hope you enjoyed and
I’ll see you next time. Bye!
