Shopping: A Nightmare with Lazada Malaysia’s Merchants

lazada_marketplace_how_it_works

Lazada is another online marketplace that has a few similarities like those existing e-commerce such as Amazon, and Rakuten. It provides a platform that enables third parties merchants to sell, and advertise their products online via Lazada. In other words, Lazada does not have the products in-store, and most of the items are kept by the merchants. That’s why there will be longer period for your items to reach you because Lazada has set a policy to have their merchants (3rd party, and outsourced) to send out the items within 48 hours or 2 working days. It should be noted that since Lazada has different merchants, the delivery period might be longer than what you’re expecting.

Tips: Pick the Mascara for You
Mascara
When it comes to mascara, we all speak by different techniques. What’s important is that when you put the mascara on, it works its magic and makes you feel fabulous. In a nutshell, I love mascara because it is the only thing that would give me those flirty looking eyes by framing them with long full lashes. Plus, mascara is a must have make-up that would make my eyes bigger… like Sailormoon! LOL!

Mascara is seen to be one of the most favourite make-up item which every woman has in their make-up kit at home. Besides the lips, women also tend to focus on their eyes with a touch of concealers, eyeliners as well as mascara. However, it is undeniable that some women have problems in selecting the right mascara which works best for them. There are a few simple tips for women to follow in order to get the perfect mascara they are looking for.

May 12, 2008

The first tip is to determine which type of mascara formula to choose from such as lengthening, thickening, waterproof or non-clumping. The difference between these 4 types of mascara is the shape of the mascara brush bristles, for example, fat brushes allows you to create a voluptuous eyelashes while thin skinny bristles coats your lashes from root to tip without clumps.

The next trick is women should consider the price of the mascara you are adding into your make-up kit. It all depends on your budget and how often you will use it. Some prefer to buy mascaras from the drugstore while some may go and purchase fancy mascara from the top class make-up brands. No matter which one you choose to wear, always keep in mind to stay within your budget and select the right type of mascara for your lashes.

The last tip for women to be aware of is the colour of mascara whether the typical black, brown, or the creative blue, purple and more. Most Asian women will select the black coloured mascara as it is suitable to be worn with their brown eyes but it can also seem harsh at times.
For the ladies who want a different eye look, opt for the purple, blue or brown colours which suit your personal style. Keep the black mascara for a night out with the girls or if you want to look sexy on a date. Use lighter coloured mascara tones during the day or the weekends and look stunning all day. If you are searching for a new mascara to replace your old one, check out ZALORA as it offers a wide range of mascara collection from local and international brands online.

Shopping: A Nightmare with MySale.My
MySale.My is one of many online group/bulk buy websites which you can find over the Internet, and concept is similar to Gilt (USA) where you have to make pre-order for the items that they are currently selling. Most of items sold are apparels, accessories, and some household items which they channel from big global brands at discounted or clearance price. I stumbled upon a few details on MySale.My while trying to learn more about undelivered orders by MySale.My (and how they tackle this problem), yet most of them have bad experience (and with unresolved matter) while doing online shopping with MySale.My lately. 

MySale.My is owned by an Australian company namely Ozsale Pty Limited, which also runs an online shopping site that has garnered lots of negative reviews over the Internet, i.e. Ozsales.au. You can read all the reviews on Ozsales.au here

I had always been a loyal MySale.My customers prior this, and had never experienced problems such as undelivered orders, and gotten some fake or low quality items. Yet, this experience really which I encountered lately has changed my mind to shop online via MySale.My. I always do online shopping, and I am fully aware that there’s unavoidable risk of losing your orders during delivery process. However, I look forward on how the management tackles this kind of problem.
I made two (2) different pre-orders on NYX Cosmetics somewhere in May 2014, and was expecting both orders to reach me latest by the end of June 2014 as I need to restock my make-up box for any upcoming make-up jobs (Oh yes, I’m a freelance make-up artist). In fact, MySale.My does provide estimation on delivery date for every orders made by their customers. I admit that they have implemented a nice and friendly ordering system whereby customers can always place order either via their smartphone, tab, and computer, and track down the status of their orders. However, I’m pretty disappointed with the lacks with their operating system to ensure the orders reach their customers – SAFELY.

It’s normal for the customers to keep on asking for their order which is still undelivered even after the estimated delivery date has lapsed. I can understand the time spent by MySale.My personnel in dealing with this problem especially when the other party has not provide you with latest updates or responses. I mailed MySale.My TWICE, and only to receive one (1) package while the other one has been considered as cold case – not even a single news of the whereabouts, insisting me to assume that the other one was never delivered as the personnel does not even reveal the tracking number to me.


 So, my last message to MySale.My was on 26 August 2014. Alas, the reply is very disappointing!

And, all my orders including the undelivered order are all thrown into the dustbin, treating it as part of completed orders. Disappointed as I feel right now, and all I have to do is to vent out my irk on this blog to share my shopping nightmare in Elm Street with MySale.My.

I’m so sorry, MySale.My. I can no longer shop with confidence with you. Moreover, your shipping charge has gone up, and doesn’t even suit with the delivery service. My hubby also got a pair of shoes which you claimed as ‘Leather’ and (what’s more?) you claimed it is imported from UK. Alas, we found out the shoes come from a factory in China. Pardon me for being outlandish but I speak, read, and write Chinese. I have no problem to get information about the material from your supplier. Judging from the smell & look of the material, we found out that the shoes is wholly made from rubber or polycarbonate. Looking forward on how you tackle this problem, anyway. Good luck, MySale.My. Till then, I rest my case here.
