My experience with

Today I am going talk about something that women love and their husbands dread – online shopping. :P

I recently shopped from, and the online shopping experience was almost as fulfilling as first-hand shopping. Just with no SA’s judging me if I took more than a decent amount of time deliberating about a product.

I can’t tell you how happy I was to receive this package on the most boring Saturday afternoon. I was totally not expecting it, as I had placed my order the previous morning only!

I live in Mumbai and I got my purchase delivered in one day only!
The fragile products were bubble wrapped nicely. I received all the products in good condition and with satisfactory shelf life.
They have the cash on delivery option, which for me, is a must for any shopping site the first time i shop there.
They have almost all the products on discount. If you know what you have to buy, you are going to save A LOT of money.
The site is easy to navigate and has a good amount of brands.
They have a lot of products which are not available easily in shops.
Free delivery for a purchase above INR250.
Choosing shades on online shopping sites is always tricky, but I have seen sites with better arrangement for representing shades. Still I suggest that in case of lipsticks and nail paints, whenever possible, one should swatch the shade in person before placing an order online.
I noticed two days later, that I had gotten Revlon’s Red Spark instead of Revlon’s Ruby Red. I did not want any specific red so I was fine with it. But if someone specifically had wanted Revlon Red, it would have been an issue.

Still sceptic? Have a look at what the site has to say: brings the world’s finest brands in fragrances, skin care, cosmetics, hair care and beauty accessories to your dresser at the click of a single button. At, we feel you need to spend more time knowing, choosing and experiencing the products that you buy. To that end, we have removed all nuisances from the shopping experience and that means: 

No more running from one shop to another for your favorite product
It is all here at the press of a button. Don’t see what you want? Tell us and leave the running around to us.

No more checkout queues
You are the only person at checkout. Pay for items in your bag and you are done.

No more parking queues and traffic jams
Order your favorite products from the comfort of your home or office and we pack and ship your products at no extra charge so you can use your time better.

No more late gifts
Ever postponed your mom’s birthday gift to your next visit fearing damages in transit? Bag it with us and we will ensure that your mom gets her birthday gift on time and with no damages.

No more ill-informed experiments
Would love to experiment with products but don’t know anything more than the price? Unlike shopping alley shelves, we provide you product information which goes beyond the price. Go through our product information and user reviews to make an informed experiment. Still not satisfied? Give us a call.

Not comfortable using your cards online?
COD (Cash on Delivery) i.e. we will collect cash when we deliver your shopping bag to you.

Earlier I was of the opinion that nothing can replace first-hand shopping, but online shopping is so much fun too!
Paisa Vasool: Absolutely! I recommend Violetbag for its prompt delivery and discount offers. Waiting to see more brands there!
If you haven’t already, go check out Violetbag!


So have you shopped at What online shopping site did you purchase from recently?
P.S. They have offers going on for Valentines Day. If you are a guy and STILL have not bought your girl anything, hurry up, this may be your last chance to save your relationship! If you are a girl then casually leave the site page open in front of your guy. :D

P.P.S. Guess who joined twitter. My account is not exclusively for GingerSnaps, it is for my life in general. A girl has other things to do than looking gorgeous you know :P. Still I will tweet about my new posts there. @karishmarawat
P.P.P.S. I was sent a discount voucher from the site. But hold your horses! That is never going to effect my opinion. Pinkie swear!
