JABONG.COM- shopping experience , site review, haul and GOSF details.

hiya all,
November is the season of birthdays around my house. and birthdays mean one thing- GIFTS. unfortunately , this is the season of my semesters as well. ya know, those big bad things that roll around once in six months and sweep the ground right underneath you feet by the end of which you get transformed into a blubbering, messed up pile of brain frozen confusion. yes, those things.
this makes shopping for gifts or anything else a far fetched thought. unless, i m ready to risk failing in a paper ( which i never am ), i resist going out. and at this time, comes to my rescue like a knight in shining armour ,ONLINE SHOPPING.
its like a messiah sent by god. i remember the days when online shopping got launched in India by a few select sites. the faces people made, the reservations they had. but now, people shop from top to toe anything and everything via online shopping. from a needle to a house. 
one of my favourite sites for online shopping is you can get everything here (okay not groceries or houses but everything) 

as the people behind the site say , is a young and vibrant company that aims to provide good quality branded products. caters to the fashion needs of men, women and kids across footwear, apparel, jewellery and accessories.
At we strive to achieve the highest level of “Customer Satisfaction” possible. Our cutting edge E-commerce platform, highly experienced buying team, agile warehouse systems and state of the art customer care centre provides customer with:
  • Broader selection of products
  • Superior buying experience
  • On-time delivery of products
  • Quick resolution of any concerns

and trust me when i say this, their claims are hundred percent true. as consistent and loyal customer of this online site, i am satisfied that whenever i buy from ,my purchase is going to land in my hands perfectly and that there will be no hassles or regrets. and so for my father's upcoming birthday, i chose to shop from here . 

my haul:-

apart from the gift for my dad's birthday. i also got some stuff for me. a lil i needed and mostly what caught my fancy (being the magpie that i am ).
the best part about are their discounts and wide variety of products for women , men , home and lifestyle related etc.
so here's my haul :~

here's what i got:-
  1. Street Wear Color Rich 25-Pink Persuasion Lipstick
  2. Star's Cosmetics Nude Rose Lip Contour Pencil.
  3. Coloressence Red Brick Lip Liner Pencil
  4. Chromozome Black Adventure 3/4Ths
  5. Maybelline Vivid & smooth Forest Green Eye liner
as you may have guessed , the chromozome black 3/4ths are for daddy dearest. he loves the fit and the material(pure cotton ) . i can see him buying more of these in all possible shades.
they are excellent quality for the price.

the lipliners were what i actually needed. i ran out of both red and nude lip liners and since, i need my lipstick to last an entire day and cant be bothered to do touchups frequently;  lipliners save the day for me .

as for the green eyeliner , i also managed to run out of my faces long wear eye pencil in forest green . i couldn't locate it anywhere , online or in store so i decided to try a different brand. now this may astound you , but i have never used the maybelline vivid and smooth eyeliners before. YES! the makeup magpie hasn't used them . so this would be a good starting point, loving it so far . i might pick up more shades in the future. 

and as for the streetwear color rich lipstick. this was a true case of see it , like it , buy it. no thought spared. a nice bright pink for the daytime.

coming to the PROS and CONS of

  • extensive variety:- of all types of drugstore, mid level and higher end brands.i mean just look at the designer list here. you could totally shop for your wedding and not blink about it-
  • AM:PM
  • ASA
  • Dhruv-Pallavi
  • Karishma Shahani
  • Manish Arora
  • Megha Garg
  • Rohit Bal for Jabong
  • Satya Paul
  • Urvashi Joneja
  • Vero Moda Marquee-Karan Johar
  • Vikram Phadnis
  • Indian by Manish Arora
  • Ritu Kumar
  • Label Ritu Kumar

(never mind that with my shoe string student budget i cant afford any of these. but a girl can dream, right?)

  • awesome packaging and shipping- i have to mention this. on a previous order , i had ordered a borosil glass square bowl for baking. it was wrapped within an inch of its life in bubble wrap. and landed into my greedy hands safely and without a scratch. shipping is fast and free above 5oo inr. also its safe as you get tracking information and the courier service generally is on time and calls before the delivery. you also get regular updates on you cellphone if you opt for sms tracking.
  • excellent customer service- not only is it prompt, they are very courteous and polite. whatever may be your problem, they will try their level best to solve it for you for instance, some parts of my order were going top be shipped much later . but i needed them before my father's birthday. i requested them regarding the same and VIOLA! my order arrived not only before time but also much before the date that iu wanted it . its always a pleasure to talk to their customer service people. i know by the time i keep my call , i am going to have a smile on my face. 
  • availability of several payment options like C.O.D or via credit or debit cards , net banking etc
  • easy site interface - it is easy to navigate , browse and add items to your cart. the quick view thing is a boon when in a hurry.
just one con , they have stopped delivering to my pincode and several others as well. i have to give my friends address and request her to pick it up for me . too much hassle .

and now the best part ,  GOSF.

if you do not know GOSF, then you must be living under a rock. GOSF stands for Great Online Shopping Festival. it is India's answer to Black Friday and Cyber Monday. basically, The concept of the GOSF is that the online shopping sites would give heavy discounts for one this is the time to Shop, Shop till you drop.
Great Online Shopping Festival is Announced and it will be on Dec 10 – 12th 2014 for three days, they also have announced GOSF PRE-PARTY with be on 25th nov 2014

check out my last year's GOSF Haul. yes ! i know i went a bit insane there. but the deals were so damn good...argh!!!!

talk your lips out with JORDANA Lip Out Loud lipgloss - 108 TTYL review and swatches

i am in the class now ....TTYL
i am shopping....TTYL
ooomygawd i just saw HIM....TTYL

we use ttyl so many times a day for any or every reason. this is one hell of an overused phrase for me . these phrases get me through the day. a few letters instead of speaking out the whole thing. a probable easy escape . so my top most used internet slang  phrases are- these days i find myself lolling (is that even a word) at everything.
2.wth...... used both ways.positive and negative.
3.stfu... again both ways.
4.yolo...every time i do something silly ( just silly, not dangerous. i don't do dangerous,period)
5.stb....she's the b**ch ( a variation of s.o.b we use in college )

the people at JORDANA,USA decided to channel our love for these phrases and create amazing lip glosses. cute to the boot and in many delicious variants.. yum yum. a shiny lip lover's dream .
JORDANA lip out loud super shiny gloss... ttyl
PRICE:- $ 1.99 for 2.43 g look at that price o_O . i must be dreaming or something OR INR 249 ON FLIPKART
Lip Out Loud Super Shiny Gloss

• Fun & Flirty Colors
• Patent Leather-Like Shine
• New Slanted Soft Applicator
• Made in USA

Available in 15 Shades

Hydrogenated Polyisobutene, Lanolin Oil, Polyethylene, Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Benzophenone-3, Disteardimonium Hectorite, Calcium Aluminum Borosilicate, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Fragrance (Parfum), Propylene Carbonate, Silica, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Retinyl Palmitate, Ascorbyl Palmitate, Tocopheryl Acetate, Tin Oxide, Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891). +/-May Contain: Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499), Mica (CI 77019), Blue 1 Lake (CI 42090), Carmine (CI 75470), Red 22 Lake (CI 45380), Red 28 Lake (CI 45410), Red 6 (CI 15850), Red 7 Lake (CI 15850), Yellow 5 Lake (CI 19140), Yellow 6 Lake (CI 15985).

a standard cylindrical tube with a shiny slant cut cap. the packaging is sturdy and leak proof. looks cute too. 
now people take a moment to admire the beauty and functionality of that wand..... JORDANA people have nailed it. kudos !
its long and tapering at the end. it slightly bends and flattens at the side you apply on the lips. this ensures precise application and even dispersal of the shimmer... more on that later
bigger brands ! are you listening ? you need to upgrade all your old fashioned gloss applicators to this one . its da bomb :)

its a pretty rosy peachy shade with ample gold shimmer running through it . it warms up the lips nicely. it also plays good with my dead mauve natural lip tone and manages to disguise the natural ghostliness. the way i use is with a real dramatic eye or for a casual day time look . i like it in the centre of the lips with a dramatic vampy red or berry lip. the perfect pouty ombre in my opinion.
the under laying sheerness makes it perfect for layering,IMHO.

shimma shimma like a disco ball 

at the price point, i wasn't really expecting something to write home about. but as a gloss hating girl , i find myself doing a double take. its actually good, fantastic. its nicely thick and hydrating . emollient but not so much as goopy and will make talking weird type. neither is it plasticky and makes me you want to tear your lips ( lakme aquashines or whatever nonsense lakme put out a few years ago).it applies smoothly with even dispersion of shimmer and the colour. the staying time is decent lasts up to 5 hours with no eating and drinking and 2 hours with eating. since its a light shade we needn't worry much about transfer. also despite being light and shimmery it doesn't bunch up and move around. thumbs up for that.

except the bottom right all swatches are in flash 
  1. subtle peachy tint suitable for daytime office wear and nigh time drama makeup
  2. inexpensive
  3. easily available in India these days
  4. nice taste and smell
  5. good,even shimmer dispersal
  6. fantastic applicator, i m saving it even after the gloss's gone
  7. hydrating and non drying
  8. decent wear time
  9. good for layering over your fave lipsticks
  10. spill proof packaging
  11. not tested on animals 
  1. none for me , but i can see the smell and taste bothering sensitive people
RATING:- 5/5 ... A  rare score for me but this product deserves it :)

do you like glosses ? what are your favourite ones?
i am in love with internet slangs ... like em or loathe em ?

much love,
