MakeupShades.com : Site Review and Shopping Experience

Ok I know I have been inactive for sometime but it's coz I recently moved back to my place from my mum's n it was so chaotic. Packing n unpacking n settling in n everything. Sure, my place is just 3 Kms from mum's but it still was taxing ok!
Oh btw Happy New Year guys! How rude of me to start cribbing before wishing! So what did you all do? I went to this place called Fusion9 where they had a live band playing. Oh and the female lead singer did the most awesome covers of Black Eyed Peas' songs! Brilliant.
I wore a dark blue n black lace dress with blue accessories n blue smokey eyes. Will post a pic soon. :) But I had to rush back before 12 coz I'd left the lil guy back home n he started getting cranky coz I'm his only food source right now. But it was still fun coz I got to dress up n go out with my friends after so long! Was good to see the whole gang together. :)

Ok so I discovered this site quite by accident coz they dont advertise or anything on the web I suppose. I was doing some research on the Revlon Aqua Mineral powder (yes, I'm very jobless ok) when I was directed to this site and saw the prices were pretty low! Huh? It was the site that time forgot. Well, not anymore. They've now updated their inventory and prices too. Sigh~


MakeupShades.com Homepage

This site has very limited brands- Revlon, Maybelline, Olay, Lotus, Garnier, Tips and Toes, Lakme and Colorbar. The full range isn't available in each brand too. But they have nice discounts. Or rather, they did. When I placed order the Revlon Colorburst lipsticks were Rs.341!! The MRP for these is Rs.475 and none of the other sites have any discounts on Revlon stuff. But this site only had 3 shades- Rosegold, Gold dust and Orchid. Yet I bought one. Had to! 341 you guys!!! I bought Rose Gold and I also picked up the Revlon Aqua Mineral makeup loose powder for Rs.600 (MRP is 1100). Damn cheap no?

But I think after my order they re-evaluated everything and hiked their prices and even introduced some new products. They are based in Gurgaon and have a very nice customer care service. They called me regularly to follow up and I also received free earrings and a handwritten thank you note with my purchase. <3
You can even request for a product and they would send it to you if they source it.
I'm really quite impressed with their service. The product was delivered to me in 3 days.

The site layout is also pretty neat and user friendly.

I would really like to see them expand their inventory and market themselves better coz I think they have the potential to grow really huge. :)
