Can I trust Orglamix?
/Edit So it turns out that Cheri has also been using stock photos to advertise her cosmetics. I don’t have an issue with that. As long as you are upfront and you tell people. It’s incredibly deceitful and unethical to use stock photos depicting products that you don’t actually sell. She’s basically leading people to believe that they’re going to achieve these amazing looks with her cosmetics and even going to far as to tell people what eyeshadow is used on the models from the stock photo sites. It’s clear now also that her swatch photos are clearly photoshopped eyes. Some look as though she’s just photoshopped the colored eyeshadow on, while others look like she’s actually photoshopped the same eyeball in. Here she says the model here is using the pacific paradise collection… But um that’s a stock photo that you purchased, you don’t know what she’s using. Here are more. Here are some links to photo’s of her double labels: here, here and here. Like I said earlier. It’s unfortunate that she couldn’t just be honest and upfront. Had she not lied about everything I would probably be willing to purchase her products. I can’t purchase from her knowing how deceitful she’s been. I mean saying that you’re registered with PETA as being cruelty free and not actually being registered anywhere? It all seems small and silly. But when it all adds up it’s quite sad. /End edit
I first heard about Orglamix through Alternative Housewife. After checking out their Etsy and facebook pages I was impressed with the products and color choices they had. I’d even contacted Cheri on Etsy to see about finding a foundation shade for my skin. Her response on Etsy kind of threw me off. It was really generic and it didn’t seem like she even read what I said to her. I quickly brushed it off and went back to mulling over eyeshadow colors.
Right now I have to say I’m glad I didn’t purchase anything from Orglamix. After reading this and seeing all of the comments that have been deleted from her facebook page. I don’t know what to think. If you read the comments there from Not Making it Up you can see that people who purchased Orglamix products in the last month have jars that have double labels on them. :/ Some of labels list unsafe ingredients and others don’t list ingredients at all. Some have carmine in them which is made from carminic acid from scaley bugs. These are supposed to be vegan products. Some list the jars being 1 gram while the ones on top list them as 2 gram jars. There are too many people responding with relabeled jars to think this is just a mistake or that she just made new labels for the jars.
For those of you who have purchased Orglamix recently, can you check your labels to see if any are relabeled? It would be nice to know. As of right now I think I’m going to avoid purchasing from Orglamix until I see how this plays out. Right now her behavior tends to make me believe that she was being dishonest in her product sales, but I hope I’m wrong.
