Holly Wiles, a makeup artist dropped jaws when she shared a TikTok video in which she flaunted all of the designer products she purchased while shopping during a vacation in the French capital. 

Within seconds of posting her video, Holly had been inundated with comments from stunned viewers – some of whom took great offense at the contents of her clip, accusing her of ‘showing off’ while mocking her pronunciation of the designer brands featured. 

However, others quickly leapt to the makeup artist’s defense, insisting that she should be ‘proud’ that she’s able to afford so many ‘nice things’ and claiming Holly has every right to share her purchases with the internet.

Speaking to her 3,000 followers, Holly, whose video has racked up close to one million views, said: ‘I went on a shopping spree in Paris, let’s see what we got. 

‘Did I go overboard with everything I got? Probably. Do I care? Probably not.’ 

Then, the 25-year-old went on to show the extremely costly items she purchased. 

She began by showing off the ‘only piece of clothing’ she bought, which was a Michael Kors dress priced at $266, but Holly seemed to justify the cost by noting that it was ‘amazing.’ 

Next up, the makeup artist stayed true to her beauty-obsessed roots and opted for two luxury makeup products from French brand Guerlain. 

She first showed the camera an eyeshadow palette, which totals at $85, and then showed off the brand’s ‘best seller,’ which was a bronzer and was $56. 

Then, she seemed to give out a disclaimer of sorts to her followers, noting that the rest of the items she purchased were even more lavish than they could imagine. 

‘Okay, so the rest of the stuff I got is 90 per cent bags and purses and wallets, the other 10 per cent is shoes, don’t judge me,’ she pleaded. 

Then, she showed off a ‘beautiful’ Versace wallet,  which retails for $825. 

Her ‘iconic’ Dior purchase followed, which was a quilted black handbag with a chain crossbody. 

She noted that the $2,350 purse was ‘just perfect.’ 

Then, she unboxed a $395 YSL cardholder and a $845 YSL tan wallet. 

‘Next up is these giant bags,’ Holly said as she showed the camera two large bags from Louis Vuitton. 

She boasted her Prada purse that is covered in rhinestones and retails for $3,900

The makeup artist then gave her viewers a peek of her ‘work bag’ which was a black Louis Vuitton purse complete with the brand’s classic monogramming, and retails for $3,500. 

And her next Louis Vuitton purchase was yet another purse, but this time she noted it was a black bucket bag that retails for $2,710. 

Finally, showing users the shoes she purchased, she pulled out a Christian Louboutin bag, which had a black pair of stilettos that retail for $845, and a sheer crystal pair that retail for $1,245. 

The last purchase came as no surprise as she showed viewers yet another purse. 

Reaching for a Prada shopping bag, she told followers to ‘prepare’ themselves, and then boasted her Prada purse that is covered in rhinestones and retails for $3,900. 

The high-priced haul video led to a raging debate between viewers – with some hitting out at Holly for flaunting the costly items in such a public way, while others praised her for making enough money to afford all of the designer goods. 

‘People are starving!’ one person wrote, as another chimed in: ‘I feel like this is the vibe when someone goes to stores they have no idea what to do in but [they] want to spend money.’ 

Viewers couldn't believe their eyes as many questioned how she could even afford a shopping spree of nearly $20,000

‘How many wallets do you need?’ a third person questioned? 

‘Tell me your rich without telling me your rich,’ commented another user. 

Several people were quick to mock Holly’s pronunciation of the various brands featured in the video, with one commenter saying: ‘Funny how person with money doesn’t need to worry about pronouncing it right.’

‘Think the only names you pronounced correctly were Michael Kors & Prada,’ another wrote. 

However, there were several people who spoke out in defense of the makeup artist, insisting that she has every right to flaunt the items that she ‘spent her own money’ on.

‘I’m sensing some jealousy in these comments,’ said one. ‘You go girl! You should be proud you spent your own money on things that make you happy!’

Several people were far more interested in how Holly earned the money used during the shopping spree, with one questioning whether she had recently ‘won the lottery’ while another jokingly mocked: ‘What do her parents do?’
