My Shopping Experience:

For the past few months, i have been greatly relying on the online shopping sites as it saves lot of time, also i come across some real good discounts sometimes. And the other reason being that a lot of brands that are hard to find near my place are easily available here. So such e-shopping site that i recently shopped from is  In order to proceed with the shopping i have got myself registered with the website and immediately i got a confirmation mail to my inbox. The website is user-friendly and its easy to browse through. You will come across brands like Lakme, Revlon, Lotus etc. But the brands are very limited. But then again, you will find decent discounts on almost every product you purchase.They offer Free shipping for purchases over Rs.300/-. They also have COD option for few cities. They offer few freebies for purchases above Rs.300/-. I placed my order on 9th Jan and as soon as i placed my order i got a confirmation mail from them. Again i got a mail on 12th Jan stating that my order has been dispatched via Aramex. I could have received the order by 14th Jan, but unfortunately we were having holidays from 14th Jan- 16th Jan due to Pongal festival that we celebrate here in South, so the delivery got delayed. But then i did not receive my package even on 17th Jan, so i immediately informed the same to the Customer care and i got a prompt reply from them. I even got calls from the courier guys apologizing for the delay and my order was immediately delivered.  

The packaging is decent. I got the products packed in a card board box and then securely bubble-wrapped. 
This is how the packaging was:

What I liked:
  • The site is user-friendly, easy to navigate and browse through.
  • Free Shipping for purchases of above Rs.300/-
  • COD options available for few cities.
  • A good and prompt customer service.
  • They have good discounts offered on almost every product.
  • They offer some freebies for purchases above Rs.300/-
  • Good collection of Color bar and Tops & Toes cosmetics, as you usually dont get to find them more on other e-shopping sites.

What could have been better:
  • Would really want more brands to be included.
  • The COD option is limited to only few cities, would really want them to add more cities.
And these are the things that I bought :D

  • Vega Fan Brush
  • Vega Blush Brush
  • Garnier Body Cocoon Intensive Moisture Lotion
  • Color Bar Velvet Matte Lipstick in the shade-Naked Pink
  • Lotus Lip balms-Raspberry
Overall a nice shopping experience, totally wish they stock up more brands.
