My First Online Cosmetic Shopping Experience and a Surprise Picture

Hi everyone, Yesterday I received an item in the post, being my first experience with online shopping. I will review this after use in a while, but I was so excited to share the pics with you all.

bobbi brown shimmer brick nectar

I ordered a Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in ‘Nectar’ from I got it at a 50% discount, for Rs. 820. My online order was placed on 18.2.11 and the package was shipped from Hong Kong on 23.2.11, owing to some identification required by them, as my Aunt gave me her credit card to use but I had given my name in the shipping address. I received my package yesterday (9.3.11), it had taken a total of 13 working days to arrive. It arrived by registered post in a nice compact packing box, with bubble wrap and thermacol fittings, and it was tied up with a purple ribbon.

I am very happy with this purchase. (I hope to heavens that it is genuine – a pat on the back to as I’m sure it is, but err, just for some reason in case it is not so, then they get a punch on the face!).

It came unboxed but brand new.

Will do swatches etc. in my review of this, in a short while.

Now for a surprise pic.
