My first online shopping experience with LazadaWednesday, November 02, 2016
I am at the stage in my pregnancy when I cannot get a good night's sleep anymore. I am on the final stage where nights become so long that there's nothing else to do except entertain yourself with social media.
I was on Facebook when an ad for Lazada pops up on my screen: "Save 76% on a 12pc Naked 3 Professional Brush Set". I clicked the link... and the rest was history. You don't have to be a top techie to be able to do some online shopping, but online shopping does require you be a little bit of a techie to know your way around shopping sites. And Lazada's shopping app is pretty easy to navigate.
I didn't know that Urban Decay made such brushes (kind of knowing that these brushes were fake), I went ahead and ordered myself 2 sets (one for me, and one for my sister). I figured that, if they were of good quality, then I could always use a good travel brush set and got them for a cheap price. And if they were not good, then at least I didn't spend a truck load of money and just give them to my nieces for them to play with.
I am not familiar with this brand, and I couldn't find anything about it online so I decided to skip. Some shops selling these in Lazada even marks them as Urban Decay Lanbis lipsticks, but if you Google Urban Decay Lanbis Lipsticks, they are totally different from these. I have never seen or heard of these lippies before too.
Always take the time to do your research before purchasing.
I have seen a couple of blogs online too talking about these pencils but very vague so I decided to order them for myself and just try them out so I can do a more detailed review on them.
That annoyed me though because that would have been better than using my PayPal account. I am out of the house most of the day too so leaving cash was out of the question as well.
They are not so fast with the shipping, and it's really annoying to know that your items do not come from one place. I mean if it did they would have come all at once. Unlike BeautyMNL where they have a warehouse of the stuff they sell and everything comes from BeautyMNL instead of from the different vendors.
I do however have to warn you that the site does not really indicate where the items are from, and does not include too much details where the products are made. So I suggest doing research before clicking the checkout button. I even saw a fake version of Benefit's Porefessional there that comes with a Beauty Blender sponge. So please be careful when shopping.
I will be doing a more detailed review and give my first impressions on the products I bought from the site on a different post.
