   My Jabong.com Shopping Experience:

Also, couldn't resist buying a super cute combo of 3 bright colored nail enamels by the same brand and a Garnier moisturizer for the harsh winters.
   My order was processed and shipped from their warehouse in a day's time and was delivered to me at my doorstep within 60 hours of placing the order! The progress of my order was informed to me by mail as well as by phone messages at every step.
   All my stuff came enveloped in a plastic cover packaged in a cardboard box. Inside all the products were wrapped in bubble wrap and individually placed in a see through plastic cover.

Getting ready with the Maybelline Festive Fireworks Instaglam Box


Maybelline Festive Fireworks Instaglam Box

   This year, Maybelline made my Diwali more festive with their Festive Fireworks Instaglam Box.
   These Festive Fireworks boxes are available in 3 variants - Pink, Coral and Wine with each of them containing 5 full sized products - The Colossal Kajal, Hyper Glossy Liquid Liner, Color Sensational Lip Polish, Cheeky Glow Blush and a Color Show Nail Color.
   The Festive Fireworks Instaglam boxes come in a brown colored cardboard box with star shaped cut outs and Diwali and cosmetic themed graffiti on it. They have a magnetic lock to secure the box.
   The one which I received and would be reviewing here is the Coral Festive Fireworks box.

   It contains -
   1. Hyper Glossy Liquid Liner (Black) - 3 g priced at Rs. 245/-

   As the name suggests, this eyeliner dries up to give a nice jet black glossy finish. Starting with the inner corner of my eye, I applied it on my upper eyelids in a winged manner to give my eyes a pretty festive look.
