My First International Shopping Experience - Amazon.com ^_^

05:49


You know that feeling when your heart skips a beat, you lose your breath, there are butterflies in your stomach and goosebumps all over your body? That's exactly what happened to me when I saw the package from my very first International haul!

When the person said 'Ma'am courier from Amazon' I was wondering what I ordered from Amazon.in and was pretty annoyed that he was asking for an ID proof. It was when I held the package that I realized.. oh ohh ohhhhhhhh omg OMG it's from Amazon.com*insert gasps* and then  I was smiling at the whole world and holding the package like it was the last thing left in the world. lol.

What made me make this haul:

The Revlon Just Bitten Balms. After using ALL of my previous collection I wanted to restock my favourite shades. The bitten balms are hands down the BEST lip products I have ever used and it's a very sad and annoying thing that Revlon chose to discontinue them! *Why Revlon? Whyyyyy!!!* *criee*
My hunt for the Revlon just bitten balms started two years back. I hunted for them in offline stores and they were not available there. I searched online and 1-2 shades which I didn't want were available on Flipkart and Amazon at a sky high price. Plus, those listings were not fulfilled by Flipkart/Amazon so there were possibilities of the products being fake. I tried buying them from Revlon's official website directly but they were not available there too! Long story short, I seemed to have reached a dead end but being a person who never gives up, my hopes of getting these balms wasn't lost. I did stop searching for them for a year and a half but they were always on the back of my head.

It was the 'Shopaholic' phase of my life which helped me achieve my dream of owning the Just bitten balms again. Few months back I went on a crazy frenzy of online shopping, experimenting with different stores and buying whatever I ever wanted or liked. It was then that the idea of shopping Internationally cracked to me and the first thing on my mind when I opened Amazon.com was 'Just bitten balms' and to my surprise, they were available in every color and that too at half the price for which I bought them here in India.

I will be sharing my entire journey with you all in the next post so you can grab some very important tips, learn about the benefits and not repeat the mistakes which I made.

Meanwhile, here's what I bought:

  • Revlon Just bitten kissable balm stain in Rendezvous
  • Revlon Just bitten kissable balm stain in Sweetheart
  • Revlon Just bitten kissable balm stain in Romantic
  • Milani Amore matte liquid lipstick in 'Gorgeous' (it's soooo gorgeous!)
  • NYX lip cream in 'Monte Carlo'
  • Wet n Wild Catsuit liquid lipstick in 'Missy and Fierce' (Bought 2 :P)

Just to give you a short review, it was one hell of an experience which not only made me meet my lost loves(Revlon just bitten balms) but also made me learn a lot along the way!
There was a lot of risk involved which was worth taking and now I will be shopping from Amazon.com again and again and againnnnnnnn!!! ;)

Love,
