Horrid Experience with

A few days back I placed an order with Med plus Beauty. It was the first time that I was placing an order with them and picked up 3-4 items on 13th September, 2012. While the order got confirmed on the very same day and was packed for delivery on 14th September, 2012, my experience with med plus beauty wasn't a pleasant one..

On 15th/16th September I received a call from Medplusbeauty, informing me that my location was not covered in their delivery area and I was shocked to hear this because international shipments have been delivered to my address. I live in Panchkula which is a part of the tri-city of chandigarh and would hardly be 3-5 kms from the main market-place in Chandigarh (if you compare it to Delhi/Bombay this would still be like one part of the city).

To top it all, I was getting this call after the status of my shipment read "approved" and "packed" on their website, which was quite shocking considering the fact that medplusbeauty didnt take any steps while confirming the order.

In any case, I was asked to give an alternative address or to get my order cancelled and be eligible for a full return. I opted for the latter and was informed that the amount would be credited to my account in a few days.

I happened to check my account today-more than 2 weeks since my last interaction with medplusbeauty and to my Shock my shipment status still read-" Packed" "AWAITING DISPATCH". To make matters worse, there has been no credit to my bank account!!!

I called up the customer service and was informed that complaint has been filed and shall be handled within 7 days. I'm WAITING; TRULY and TOTALLY DISGUSTED.

Lipstick: Inglot 408

In one of my posts where I was supposed to be doing a Red tag for NBBN, Poulami Mallick asked me to review my Inglot 408 lipstick, so here goes....Mind you this is going to be a picture heavy post, just because I think it essential to catch the true shade in different lighting!

This is how it looks like
Quantity: 4.8g/0.16 US OZ
Color: True Red
Finish: Matte

Review: Pore Cleansing Facial Pads

So I have literally been dreaming about the Clarisonic Mia. Every time I hear that some relative or friend is travelling to or fro from the States, my heart skips a beat (or several, if you really ask me!). As of now, I'm quite unemployed...well, actually make it "very unemployed" :P Plus with the truckload of stuff my mum bought me recently from her trip to Alaska, it will definitely not be funny to ask her to do me a favor; as it is she thinks I'm planning to operate a beauty shop from my own bedroom!

Sigh! Anyways, cutting the long trail short, I recently wandered to this site called Deal Extreme and found tons of delicious Chinese/Japanese (????) beauty products at dirt cheap rates! And to top it all, they have free shipping !!!! And guess what I found?

Skin CARE: To Tone or Not To tone??? :-O

Until a few months back, I was a 'Not To Tone' activist.

Considering my oily, acne prone skin, I had developed a hatred to toners and moisturizers.

While the 'I hate Moisturizers' story germinates in my childhood, the "I hate Toner' story is from my college days...
To cut long matters short, let's just say-I came, I saw and I went ;)

Review: Clinique Blushes and Bronzer :)

At the risk of sounding stupid, I admit that I was introduced to "Dr."Clinique way before I became an acquaintance of "Ms."Lakme; one of the many truths about the twisted tale called "My Life"....

I shall try and restrict myself from going into the length & depth of that story as of now. We have better business to do.

So while I was reorganizing my makeup stash yesterday, I realized that the only (yes only!) blush and bronzer that I own are from Dr. Clinique. (Basically, I dont even own them, I'm just their keeper. I had long ago, swindled them from my mum's makeup collection along with this gorgeous pouch ;) )

REVIEW: Organic India's Tulsi Green Tea

P.S: That's just the Green Tea sitting in my lap ;)

So, I first fell in love with green tea when I was living in Bombay and heard about the many wonders of green tea from a friend who advised me to have a few cups a day in order to lose weight. The two years that I spent in Bombay contributed to my weight gain problem and I ended up gaining around 10 kgs (approximately). Sigh!

Initially though, I did not like the taste of it and hence I tried my experiments with green tea whereby I:
1. had it as a tonic (simmering hot half cup water with a bag of green tea dipped=extra strong)
2. Added sugar (2 spoons)= zero value addition
3. Boiled water and let it sit till it was luke warm with a tea bag dipped in it = i could taste the flavor

Review: TBS Tea Tree Blemish Gel

My skin is prone to acne and scarring and has been that way ever since I was a teenager. In search for a miracle cure, I found myself loitering at the Body Shop store in Colaba a few months back.

As on this day, I have finished up this product and am ready and willing to present my 'One TRUE Opinion'. So here goes...

Virtual Sale? :-O

Whereas people often have mid-week crisis, I, on the other hand have mid-month blues.

I just got done with paying the minimum amount on my credit card bill (sigh!) Such is my life as an unemployed beauty blogger...

However, to keep my spirits high I resigned to ogle at some beauty/fashion/makeup deals and here is a list of some good sites as well as awesome deals I found:

1.Med + Beauty dot Com:

   First up, Bourjois!
   It seems as if they have a 30% discount on everything from Bourjois, Paris! I think of late Bourjois has        become the 'baap' of all beauty products as not have I read/watched a single review which would find so much as a single shortcoming in their products. Everyone has been raving about the Healthy Mix line of Bourjois and I definitely wish to buy the Healthy Mix Foundation, and the Healthy Mix concealer. Both of these are available at a 30% discount and here is a link from medplusbeauty:

How To: Wear a Scarf like a dress :)

I was invited for a Sunday lunch by my college friends; having bought quite a few things from the States I wanted to dress up for the occasion while still keeping it a little relaxed.

So, I decided on a pair of leggings from Style & Co. and a racer back tank top from Aeropostale. I wanted to add a bit of drama and keep my love handles (as well as the "not so lovely handles") under wraps!!! Thats when I decided to add in a drape from my closet and use it as a soft layer to keep a check on my posterior ;)
