Aliexpress Review!



Hello people,


Being a blogger, I try searching various websites that sell makeup without any delivery charges, which is why I stumbled upon this website known as Aliexpress. I looked upon its makeup corner and was amazed to find great products stacked at one webpage, such as Eco Tools, Real Techniques, Sugar cosmetics and what not, that too at such reduced prices. I eyed upon the website for so long, remained in dilemma as to go ahead or stop myself. One day I managed to convince myself completely but while paying, it required a credit, debit or any sorts of such card, one of which has the famous tagline- “There are some things money can’t buy. For everything else, there’s Master-Card”. 



Currently, I am a student and there’s no way possible for me to have a credit/debit card and I dont even live in a hostel. So I asked my friend for help and he willingly offered me to use his card details. I remember I order two products, one was a mini concealer tube and another was a lip product. I had scrolled down to see their reviews and the reviews seemed okay. I had a pair of boots too in my mind but I wanted to try out with a small purchase first. Order being placed, it was clearly mentioned that delivery would possibly take 2 months. It was really hard to gush down your excitement for an order but I knew there’s no possible way for it to reach me within a week since it was not gonna come from Indian states.

Somehow, two months passed. The chain of sending messages to the website began. A lot of messages were exchanged. They claimed initially to wait for few days more. I waited. Then they said dont worry we’d refund your money if the order doesn’t reach you. Waiting continued. Post 4 months, the money got refunded. Although I read so many reviews later that there were many who never even received their refunds but I was eagerly waiting for the products and it disheartened me. But anyways, atleast I wasn’t robbed off of my heart and money too. *LOL*


If you are intending to shop from there website, I’d say “looks are surely deceptive”. There might be some particular sellers who might end up sending the products but we sitting here in India, how are we gonna predict that one particular seller amongst the ocean full of fishes?

Comment down below on your similar experience on such websites, it would possibly help other out there.

Until Next time,
Take Care & Beware :)

My Cutesy Stash - Miniso Haul Unleash!

Hi Guys, Welcome back to the Glistening Lane ✨
Side Story - I intentionally changed the font of this blog post; reason as such is nothing but I decided to break-free from the monotonous font type. But unfortunately, the font decided to bug me later on so I ended up with the same comforting font. 
In today's blog post, I will be sharing with you all my recent haul from the store of Miniso. For people who haven't encountered a Miniso outlet as of yet, Miniso is a well known Japanese brand which brings to you a lot of quirky and cute stuff which is reasonably priced and none of your money will go wasted, trust me! They have an amazing collection of utility products from the genre of beauty, kitchenware, stationery, electronics, accessories, etc. Moreover, the prices of these products start from INR 150 and the maximum, I believe, is around INR 1000, that too for PU bags. 


Recently, I happen to discover another Miniso Delhi store which was mere 2 metro stations away from where I live.…

3 Best Toners for Combination to Oily/Acne Prone Skin

Hi Guys, Welcome back to the Glistening Lane ✨

Today’s post is an in-depth discussion on toners in general, what’s been trending lately and inexpensive toners that are available in case you have a skin type that synchronizes with mine. Now, it’s as hard to classify my skin into one genre as a Myer’s personality test’s results. In short, probably those given two options won’t be enough to understanding my personality. Anyways, let’s cut short weird examples and focus on to the topic that has been raised. Naturally, to initiate further this discussion, we need to discuss what a toner is and why we need one in our lives. 

WHAT IS A TONER? Male or female, we are entering a no-gender biased zone. The concept behind toners is that the facial skin, even after the process of cleansing, is left with trails of pollution, bacteria, dust or for that fact, some makeup. Moreover, the harshness of chemical components endowed within the cleanser may affect the pH level of your skin. So in order to revers…

Cute Box March 2018 Edition - Women’s Era | Unboxing & Review

Hi Guys, Welcome back to the Glistening Lane ✨
Is anyone out here, bitten by the bug which is commonly known as the hoarding disorder? Did I just hear a ‘yes’? Well, you’re not alone in this because you’ve got my back, girl. Be it lipsticks, makeup products, skincare, cute packaging, empty bottles or containers, nail paints, stationery and what not; I love storing them all. My mind would weave a scenario wherein I’d really need these. There are times when I would assume that a particular container will be using for some DIY project. But that hardly happens. Currently, I’m thinking about making a terrarium. They are hell expensive on websites and I ain’t going to spend that much on mere plants. If I do manage to create one, I’d probably also make a blog post dedicated exclusively on that. Today we shall be unboxing an affordable jewellery subscription box which has been available in India since few months.
So as I was saying, jewellery is bae! Be it rings, bracelets or earrings; you will…
