About Product Reviews
We often accept products for review from brands and public relations representatives. Accepting products does not guarantee a published review nor a favorable review. Reviews are posted with our discretion and only honest opinions of the products will be published. We most often work 4 - 6 weeks in advance, with skin care products 3+ months in advance (to allow time for testing). If you are a brand or public relations representative that would like to submit a product for review, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have a time sensitive campaign or wish to consult with us about guaranteed placement, let's talk. We have worked successfully with hundreds of happy clients, agencies, networks and brands.
We use automatic affiliate linking services to support and monetize our site. For linking, that means we don't have control over all the links in our site or exactly where they link (ie. a MAC product linking to nordstrom.com instead of maccosmetics.com) though links will be relevant to the topic. We do manually insert and include relevant links in articles as needed. The rest of the links are for monetization only and cannot be changed. For specific links to stores and sites that advertorial in nature, those are considered sponsored content. Please contact us for more information.
We own all of our content unless otherwise quoted or noted. You may only link to our page; you may not copy, republish, sell or distribute any of our content.
About Original Photography and Swatching
We do our best to take photographs representative of the products we have. The photographs on our site are either provided for our use or they are our own original photography. Our photography is copyrighted and you may not use them without permission.
We rarely swatch products because a swatch of makeup looks different on every person and skin tone. Computer monitors are all calibrated for color individually. What we see on a computer can be totally different from what we see in person, and we have found them to be unreliable. My daughter and I can put on the same lipstick/gloss/shadow/blush and it will look totally different on both of us and RARELY like the swatch on a computer monitor. A swatch on our arms or lips will not look the same on someone else. Sure, it can be used as a guide, but we have wasted our own money by buying off of a swatch and would never want to mislead readers.
