Swatches & Reviews: Let me elaborate
So I want to kind of go into detail and elaborate on my plan for swatches and reviews. So far the feedback has been awesome and I’m excited that people would love to see an indie version of Temptalia. On that note, I won’t be swatching/reviewing foundations due to my illness and sensitive skin. Someone asked me about foundations in a facebook group and I wanted to cover that here.
I want to be able to have a complete swatch/review database if you will, at least as complete as I can. Because of that I intend to swatch/review all indie companies including those with less than stellar products and/or reputations. My question to you is, do you WANT to see swatches and reviews from companies you already know are iffy? I personally want to do it because there are a lot of people out there who know next to nothing about the companies they are buying from and I want to have a place where people can look up pretty much any current indie company and see how their customer service is and products.
Even in our own community people are less likely to give a bad review on a company or their products because so many others like them, or because it’s a new company and they don’t want to hurt them, etc. There are too many reasons. If people don’t share their experiences good AND bad, then no one has the proper information when looking at companies. I want to encourage people to share their experiences with a company when I do a review. Just because I had a good or bad experience doesn’t make it a good or bad company. The more experiences the better.
I obviously won’t be buying from places such as glittersniffer, but there are companies out there that may have a bad reputation from glittermobbing fans, or they started out rough, or they legitimately had awful customer service, etc. I want to review those companies and give my honest opinion and SWATCH ALL THE SHINIES. This will also help with the comparison posts I plan on doing. The more things I can swatch the more things I’ll have to be able to do comparisons!
So um. Yes the original intent of this post was to ask how you feel about seeing companies with less than stellar reputations being reviewed and swatched?
