My Experience: 
When I first surfed the site, I saw they have very limited but popular brands with some great discounts, however the original prices on some were not the updated market prices but the old ones IDK why. Anyway, it is quite an opportunity if you want to hold on some products you badly want.

Moreover, they also offer assured free gifts for purchases above Rs.300 and that is based on certain amounts, which would make all the ladies happy for sure.

I thought of buying a blush and a lipstick from ColorBar range. Most of the blushes were out of stock so I had to settle on Plum Brown and for the lippies, there were a large number of shades available but I am on a *nude* high :P, so I chose the shade 'Bare' from their Velvet Matte range.

I had created an account on their site already, so checking out was breezy. I chose the COD option obviously, and shipping is free above a purchase of Rs.300, else you have to pay Rs.50 (ouch!).

I got an operator generated e-mail of my invoice as soon as I placed my order. I placed my order on 19th January late in the evening. My order got confirmed next morning on 20th and I got an email  about the dispatch with a tracking number on 21st i.e. today morning and it got delivered today in the afternoon :D

They have Aramex as their logistics partner, who give excellent service of delivery within 1-2 days. 
Here is my package all nicely sealed.
All the products were nicely bubble wrapped and a printed invoice was also provided. I also received a cute shoe key ring with my purchase.

And, here are the products that I bought and they are with 2011 Mfg. dates, which was a relief as I thought the products would be old because of the old prices. :D

Overall, I really liked their customer services and delivery services. I hope they add more brands and also keep their inventory updated. I would also like to suggest them to ask their technical team to revamp their site a bit as searches doesn't always show proper results and also the whole black look appears a bit dull to me. They really have the potential and I would like to see them grow.

For all my readers, if you want to buy anything from MakeUpShades.com then you can get a special 10% discount on a purchase of Rs.500 or above,use code: 2M68R62N, valid till 26th Jan, 2012, so hurry! :)

** PR provided a gift coupon for discount, but it doesn't influence my honest opinion! Read my disclaimer.
