Be Talk: Haul from Violet Bag

Another lazy afternoon-another urge to slip beneath cozy blankets and read story books bought from book fair - another day when I feel I am neglecting my skin (I had a facial the previous day though :D :D) and then rolling onto checking some skincare stuff on the Internet! This time I hauled from VioletBag.com! 

VioletBag.com is an online shopping website that stocks a broad range of  products in skin care, hair care, bath and body, makeup categories. There are also separate sections for men, herbal products a and accessories. You can find the following brands at this website:




I placed the order on 31st Jan night and received it today-7th Feb by Noon. 


 This is what I ordered:


Now one thing about this delivery is that-I checked the tracking details of this shipment with the link provided by the shipping confirmation mail from VioletBag on Aramex website. Surprisingly-it said that the shipment has a Destination of Burdwan!  Now Burdwan is a place that’s over 100 kms from mine and a different district altogether!!At one time I thought it would never arrive and the package would be returned to the company! I was just about to write to Violetbag Customer care when the courier knocked my door! Aramex Couriers have twice created this weirdness although the address is clearly mentioned on the top of the box as well as on the invoice! 


I received my order in a violet box tightly wrapped with plastic.The packaging was very well made-with bubble wraps around each products and loads of thermocol cubes to secure them against breakage.




Also, the products (except the lipstick) have manufacturing dates within the last six months-so I am happy! 

My overall shopping experience with Violet Bag was very good-except that the courier tracking gave me a jolt with the mistaken destination. I would strongly suggest all online shopping websites to stop using Aramex-as in my own experience-I have just found it twice to botch up and delay the delivery.

Violet Bag should also add more brands in the makeup and skin care category. But I was amazed to see their fragrance section where they have a huge collection of International Brands. And hey! VB is having Valentine special Discounts and Hampers for the VDay !!! Do check them out here!

    1. Hey Shreya- I have not yet used a MAC foundation-but my skin tone is warm wheatish. My skin is of combination type. The Faces foundation has 3 shades-out of which Beige suits me-Natural 01 is for fairer skin tones and the other shade (sorry forgot the name) is for darker tones-if you tell me your skin tone I may suggest the shade :)

  12. Hey my skin tone is on fairer side paler but my neck is a shade darker kinda yellow undertone :P so i prefer using my neck shade that should be nc30-35 ... i use bourjois healthy mix 54 havent used mac either it is from shade chart online. :)

    1. I think if your are Bourjois Healthy mic 54-you go for this shade in Faces-i.e. Beige-this too would suit fair and medium tones equally and also as you said-would blend well with the neck as well :)
