Freshly Shopped: MedPlus Beauty Haul & Review

Freshly Shopped: Haul & ReviewThe best way for a beauty fanatic to kick start a great year is to shop and haul (hello 2012) and could not have launched at a better time.It's a Mecca for online beauty shoppers with a good mix of brands and categories to shop.

Freshly Shopped: MedPlus Beauty Haul & ReviewMedPlus Beauty is an offshoot of the MedPlus Healthcare Services, a pharmacy chain with 30% share of the country’s organised drug retailing.They have a repertoire of over 15000 beauty and personal care products across various categories and hundreds of brands including a number of well known international brands like Givenchy, H20, Avene, Vichy,  La Roche Posay, Clarins,Organic Surge, Bourjois, NYX and tons more.

They have also introduced an innovative concept by means of ValuePlus, a one of a kind rewards programme, which provides customers the opportunity to accrue points for purchases across various MedPlus businesses, both offline and online, and exchange the points for invaluable gifts translating to an additional discount of 20-30% off of already competitive prices.

And my favourite feature of all: Virtual Studio, where you can upload your picture and try on makeup before you buy.Interesting and oodles of fun.I tried it on a preloaded picture of a model and it was super fun.

Freshly Shopped: MedPlus Beauty Haul & Review Virtual Makeup StudioI know lately I have gone all crazy shopping online but I did have a few things on my wishlist which I'm happy to say this haul covered.

Maybelline Colorama Nail Polish In Zarzamora

Freshly Shopped: Haul & Review Maybelline Colorama ZarzamoraThis beautiful burgundy shade veering towards blackish brownish red is a perfect fall/winter shade and a good enough dupe for Chanel Rouge Noir, a shade I've been dying to try, at a fraction of the price.
Price: Rs 81 (Originally Rs 85)

Johnson's Baby Lotion

Freshly Shopped: Haul & Review Johnson's Baby LotionLove this lotion.It's so darn versatile (hand cream, makeup remover, dry skin zapper) that I keep a bottle handy at all times and the 50ml bottle will easily fit into my handbag.
Price: Rs 42

Bourjois Ultra Care Mascara In Noir Black

Freshly Shopped: Haul & Review Bourjois Ultra Care MascaraI had a major eye infection back in the summers which has made my eyes really sensitive.I had been on the hunt for a mascara for sensitive eyes and this one was highly recommended.Sadly though the only Bourjois counter in my city was out of stock.So this was actually one of the first items in my cart.I have used it once and must say even though it's meant for sensitive eyes it does not compromise in the volume department.
Price: Rs 451 (Originally Rs 475)

Bourjois Rouge Hi-Tech Lip Tint In Groseille Irreelle

Freshly Shopped: Haul & Review Bourjois Rouge Hi-Tech Lip TintAnother product which has been out of stock for eternity.I'm not a huge fan of lip tints since I have dry lips so I was more interested in testing it's ability as a cheek tint.So far so good.A bit hard to blend but the colour is simply gorgeous and pops without looking OTT.
Price: Rs 451 (Originally Rs 475)

Revlon ColorStay Active Foundation In Medium Beige

Freshly Shopped: Haul & Review Revlon ColorStay Active Foundation Medium BeigeFoundations are my new obsession and I just can't seem to get enough of them.One of my friends is a die hard Revlon fan and had been recommending this foundation for ages, so I caved in.The only problem being that it is available in only 2 shades, luckily for me Medium Beige is a bang on match.
Price: Rs 675

Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick In Hooked On Pink

Freshly Shopped: Haul & Review Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick Hooked On PinkCan't have enough of these lippies.A while back I got Fatal Red, which is my current fave so I wanted to try something more pink.And this fits the bill perfectly.It's a plum pink, a bit on the darker side, but it has me hooked right on pink!
Price: Rs 284 (Originally Rs 299)

The package was as usual wrapped up nicely and was delivered within 3 days of placing the order, including a Sunday (order placed on 30th night and package delivered on 2nd morning).Super impressive.In fact they claim to deliver the very same day or the next day if you're in any of the metros.

Freshly Shopped: Haul & ReviewAnd they have a very responsive customer service.My order was confirmed within half an hour of placing it.Add to that a flexible return policy, secure payment options, free shipping(on orders above Rs 300) and you get yourself a pretty good deal.The only hitch being that the shade swatches are a bit misleading.Also COD is currently not available everywhere which I hope will be remedied soon.
Currently there are some amazing offers On worth checking out:
  • Buy any fragrance over Rs 2500 to get a backpack worth Rs 1500 free
  • 15% off Giivenchy
  • 15% off The Body Shop
Do hop by the shop and let me know what you make of it.Will put up reviews and swatches soon.If you need a quick opinion on any particular one, comment and let me know.
Disclaimer: I used a discount voucher to purchase from , though the review constitutes my honest opinion.Read Review Policy for more information.


  1. nice haul sonia.. i too want to try that hooked on pink one!!

  2. Checked the site..They does have variety of brands..and liked their redeemable points scheme,but as gifts they could have given us option to choose some thing from their site itself :p

  3. @Pavani: Try it, it's absolutely gorgeous.
    @Siri: That's a good enough suggestion, but ValuePlus is not only meant to be used for their beauty store but covers other MedPlus stores too, so it makes sense they have other gift options.
