Jabong.com is easily my current favorite site (Indian and International). I have been shopping there for years now since they started the website. And I know online shopping… my credit card bills validate that claim.

Here I present to you (one of) my recent shopping experience on Jabong.com.

My Recent Inglot Purchases

Recent is a very relative word. Let us not get into how recent this “recent” is. :-)

As you might already know, Inglot is one of my favorite brands. The products are mostly more affordable than the higher end brand and have almost the same quality. Here in Bangalore, the Inglot outlet was already far away from where I stay. Now, it has moved from 1 MG Mall to a farther place, Phoenix Market City. This is one of the reasons I make sure I visit the Inglot stores on whatever other cities I go to. And by that I mean, Chennai and Kolkata.

Therefore, here I present to you, the loot from one of my “recent” travels.

Inglot Mattifying Pressed Powder, Inglot AMC Cream Concealer 73,  Inglot Top Coat Matte

L’Oreal Paris Kajal Magique Swatches, Review and Thoughts

Hello y’all! Let’s talk about the newest kid on the Kajal-land block here in India, the L’Oreal Paris Kajal Magique. The L’Oreal Paris Kajal Magique definitely intrigued me with the beautiful looking ads and the eye-catching packaging. I always love to try out new ways to make my eyes bold so it was perfect when I was sent the sample for my thoughts on it.

Christmas Nails: Version One, Stamping: Santa, Bells and Christmas Tree!

Christmas time is the one time in the year that I am sure that I will be in a permanent good mood, no matter what. A mental recitation of one of the famous Christmas Songs is enough to make me smiling and “bobbing” with joy. :-)

Here’s a look at the first manicure I did for Christmas this year.

20% off on Real Techniques brushes and extra discount at iHerb.com

If you checked my tweets or some of my previous posts, you”d have read that I accidentally ordered stuff off internet but I was happy about it. Yes. I do such things sometimes.

The website was iHerb.com.

Use the code: QLD935 to receive an additional discount of $5 for less than $40 purchases or $10 discount for purchases costing more than $40.

iHerb.com is the recommended website to order Real Techniques brushes by Samantha Chapman of their super famous (and my favorite channel), pixiwoo. I love them so much that the first ever post on ofprettythings.net was their wonderful brush. You can read the review and my experience with the iHerb.com purchase by clicking HERE.

I already ordered these the first time:

Real Techniques by Samantha Chapman, On Location, Travel Essentials, 3 Brushes + Case
Real Techniques by Samantha Chapman, Your Base/Flawless, Expert Face Brush

And this time, I ordered these ”accidentally”. *sigh*

Real Techniques by Samantha Chapman, Your Base/Flawless, Core Collection, 4 Brushes + Case
Real Techniques by Samantha Chapman, Your Eyes/Enhanced Starter Set, 5 Brushes + Case
Real Techniques by Samantha Chapman, Your Eyes/Enhanced, Fine Liner Brush
Real Techniques by Samantha Chapman, Your Finish/Perfected, Setting Brush
Real Techniques by Samantha Chapman, Your Finish/Perfected, Blush Brush

These will be delivered today. I am so excited! But I am here in Pune so will not be able to get my hands on them for 2 more weeks. :(

I am only interested in the Stippling Brush which I currently feel is unnecessary because I love my Expert Face Brush and their limited edition Duo Fiber Brushes. Then my collection for Real Techniques will be complete! :P

The site also sells Ecotools products. I know a lot of you would want those as well. :)

I always use a coupon code for extra discount. You can use the code: QLD935 to receive an additional discount of $5 for less than $40 purchases or $10 discount for purchases costing more than $40.

Hope this information is helpful. :)
