My Mini Maybelline Haul & Flipkart.com Website Review

Hello peeps, I’m back with another online shopping experience, this time with flipkart.com. I got a gift voucher of Rs.500 from dealstan blogging contest and as expected, I headed straight to flipkart’s beauty category. I always wanted to try a gel eyeliner so i chose Maybelline lasting drama gel liner in black and as there was still 50 bucks left, I added some more amount to it and ordered Maybelline hyper curl volume express mascara.

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.

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.
