Why Getting Your Christmas Party Look Online Is Easier

The annual Christmas parties are occasions where you like to dazzle. This year, you want to try a new makeup palette, but don’t have the right cosmetics for it. Here’s a tip: buy what you need online.

Why buy what you need online?

Online shopping is always the best way to buy the products and services you need. It is also safer than going to offline stores while we still grapple with the Coronavirus pandemic. Here’s why you should use online shopping apps if you already aren’t:

* Convenient shopping from your home: When you’re shopping online, all you need is a few minutes of your time and a shopping app on your smartphone to start buying what you need. You can shop online at any time and any place, whether you are sitting on your couch with your morning coffee, or taking a quick break from work to buy a new dress for your Christmas party. You can even shop during a long work commute.

* Get the best deals for shopping online: Prominent online shopping apps offer incentives such as discounted pricing, limited period offers and even first access to upcoming sales if you shop on their app. The same products may be available on the brand’s website, but the rewards are greater when you shop on the app. The best shopping apps notify you when upcoming sales and deals are arriving so that you don’t miss out on them. Shopping during these times saves a lot of your money – you can divert the savings to your next shopping trip!

* Compare price points across apps before buying: Shopping apps of various brands and stores make you privy to products and services of different kinds. Some apps have differential pricing on the brands and products that you normally buy, so you can save money on them. Meanwhile, you can keep scouting for better prices or BOGO (Buy One, Get One) offers or other incentives across the shopping apps on your phone, till you arrive at the best deals.

* Have your purchases delivered or picked up from your doorstep: Apart from offering a wide inventory of products and free delivery of your purchases to your home, you can even initiate a return or exchange of products that you don’t like using the app. The same products are then picked up from your doorstep (provided the packaging and price tags are still intact and the product has not been washed or used) and the e-store initiates a refund or exchange request upon receiving the goods. You don’t need to pick up the products from a physical store, or go there to initiate a return or exchange.

But wait – what if you don’t like what you bought?

However, the only disadvantage of online shopping is that you cannot touch and see what you are buying before the product arrives at your home. If you don’t like what you buy, you might need to return it. But returns and exchanges are allowed only on items like clothing, accessories and footwear. It is not allowed on personal care products, cosmetics, face and skin creams, hair lotions and conditioners, etc.

So if you buy cosmetics and skin/hair care products online for the first time, or try a new brand or product and don’t like it, you are stuck with it because you cannot exchange or return it. This can cost you a lot of money! How can you get your Christmas party look together if you don’t like what you buy?

There’s a simple way out: install one of the best shopping apps in India that offers free product trials. You can order free samples of the cosmetics or creams or other beauty products you wish to buy but only if they work for you. Use the sample to make up your mind, and then place an order for the products that you like.

Once you have tried the free samples and shortlisted the products you liked, you can place an order for them. Doing so gets you more points to try more free samples, and you might also get cashback under certain conditions.

So go ahead and get your Christmas party look ready!
