Being a work from home writer by profession and beauty blogger by passion, I spend most of my time surfing the internet. No wonder, online shopping comes naturally to me. Shoes, bags, bed sheets, gifts, beauty products, clothes and even Lingerie, I have tried to purchase nearly everything online. And even when I’m not shopping online, most of my off-line purchase choices are influenced by the research and information gleaned through online shopping websites.
Fortuitously it so happened that I started seeing the ad for Maybelline Color Show nail lacquer by Jabong.com everywhere on the internet just at a time, when I was looking to buy this trendy range from Maybelline. Since I was in no mood to squeeze time out from my busy schedule to go shopping, I decided to make the purchase online.
But internet might also be a risky place. A random purchase from a random place may take you from a few clicks to bricks!! So I always try to restrict my online shopping to only a few tried and tested online shopping websites; flipkart.com for gadgets, Nykaa.com for beauty products and Myntra.com for apparels. Despite my friends raving about their pleasing shopping experience with Jabong.com, I hadn’t got a chance to experience it myself.
So I visited Jabong.com partly for shopping Maybelline Color Show nail paints and partly for testing the tall claims made by my peers about this shopping website. Read on to discover whether Jabong.com succeeded in impressing me with its retail services or not. Here is an honest review of my online shopping experience with Jabong.com
My Shopping Experience with Jabong.com
Visiting Jabong.com was like a treat to the eyes. Looking at their aisle of endless products in myriad categories, I felt like a small kid in a big shopping mall. Literally, Jabong.com is like a virtual shopping mall, where you can find almost anything and everything. From dresses, shoes, handbags and accessories to beauty products, gadgets, furniture and home décor; you name it and they have it.
Now you must be thinking with such a colossal range of products in their shopping aisle, one would likely get confused or bewildered. But surprisingly, their user friendly interface, navigation and optimum filter options make it highly easy and convenient for shoppers to search for the stuff they are looking for.
Apart from a wider selection of products, another thing that impressed me about this site was the abundance of information I could gather about each product before considering it for purchase. Like an increasing number of consumers today, I want to feel empowered with the information about the products I’m buying or using. Good going Jabong!!
But before I could let the shopping freak in me set lose in a pool of attractive offers and discounts, I thought it is better to come straight to business and buy stuff I came to buy. I was delighted to find all my favorite shades in Maybelline Color Show nail paints in their vast collection of makeup products under Beauty & Grooming section (Women<Beauty & Grooming<Makeup).
It took me less than 10 minutes to shortlist the products and complete the purchase. I even bought a set of men’s deodorant on offer for DH (Men<Fragrances)
Despite being based in Ludhiana, Punjab, I received the order within three days of ordering. It is the quickest delivery time I have experienced in all my online shopping escapades. Although, the packaging didn’t look attractive to me but it was definitely secure with multiple bubble wraps and air filled tubes (You can see the bag made with air filled tubes for secure packaging in the pic). I did find the small cardboard box in which they packed the Maybelline Color Show nail paints to be really cute.
And guess what? I received my first discount voucher of Rs. 150 off on my next purchase of Rs. 999 along with my delivered order.

R2B Rating: 4.8/5
Will I Shop Again: Yes, in fact, have added this site to my list of favorite online shopping websites.
Overall, my shopping experience with Jabong.com turned out to be good. I’m glad to get introduced to another reliable online shopping website. However, this is my first experience and that too with safe products. Have not ordered any outfit yet from this shopping website. The quality of goods like clothes, shoes, décor, and accessories is a real test. Rest Jabong.com came out with flying colors in all other criteria.
