Added to it there is also a beauty book section that will guide you with the latest beauty tips and tricks and an expert section where skin experts answer your beauty queries.

I got a confirmation mail after placing the order successfully and one after the product has been shipped. I got a tracking number to track my products from time to time. The order got delivered to me on 15th May 2014.

All the products were bubble wrapped and was securely packed. Out of all the products, I found the Maybelline Color Tattoo eyeshadow was going to expire this December.

I called up the customer care next day and they said they can replace it once the fresh product come in stock. I waited for few more days and called them up again on 28th May 2014. This time, they told me that Maybelline has stopped manufacturing their Color Tattoo eyeshadow (uh really?) and I can keep the product with me and use it until expiry and they will refund the amount charged for it. I got the refund within 24 hours of processing. Their customer service was professional and they were very co-operative too. Overall I am very happy with my hassle free shopping experience. I am looking forward to shop with them again.

Pros: 1. User friendly website

2. Have many brands in store

3. A separate offer section

4. A virtual makeover section

5. Easy checkout process

6. Great customer support team

Cons: None

Rating: 4/5

Snapdeal.com Website Review & Purchasing My Perfect MLBB Shade

Hello peeps, Hope you all are doing well. Finally my exams are over and I can give some quality time to my blog now. The last few posts published In the blog was per-scheduled due to my exams. But that didn’t stop me from shopping online. While searching a perfect MLBB shade I came across the reviews of Lakme 9 to 5 lipstick in Coffee Command and I was pretty much sure that the shade would work well for my skin. When I planned to buy it online, I saw very few website selling that particular shade, snapdeal.com was one of them. I have purchased coupons from them before but buying something from their website was new for me. Read on to know about my experience below:

My Experience With Snapdeal: Snapdeal.com is a one stop online shopping site for a variety of products to meet your day-to-day needs. The website is very user-friendly and easy to navigate. You will find most of the products in a discounted rate plus they run offers on various categories all through the year. I think they do not have a fixed least amount to avail free shipping on products unlike other websites. Again that may differ from merchant to merchant and your area. I was not in a plan to buy too many items so I simply ordered Lakme 9 to 5 lipstick in Coffee Command and opted for cash-on-delivery.

I placed my order on 28th May, 2014. They have multiple payment options like payment through credit card, debit card or net banking. As soon as they confirmed the order, I got a message both in my phone and in email. The product was shipped a day later and I received it on 4th June, 2014. The item was securely packed and bubble wrapped and came in a prefect condition.
