Temptalia Asks You


Do you review beauty products you purchase? Is it just gabbing to pals or do post them on the internet (be it MUA, Shopping sites, etc.)?

    yep! i write reviews on MUA – but only when i’m sure i can come to some sort of good conclusion on the product :)

  2. Ladybug

    I always check MUA, before I buy something.

  3. I looove gabbing about products if they’re really good or really bad. But if they’re just “eh”, I’ll usually be quiet about it. As if the product doesn’t deserve any mention.

    I review products on my beauty blog :)

  4. I love to review products, for me and for my friends.

    I post them on my blog, http://www.poseysbeautyreviews.com

    This way, i can also go back for myself to see if i liked a certain brand, product etc.

  5. i check the reviews at MUA b4 buying anything.
    then i write my reviews there.

    Yep. I have recently just started my own blog. I figure that I buy so much stuff, that I may as well review the stuff, especially being a woman of colour. So much of the stuff that you read in terms of reviews is not really geared to darker skin, so I try to focus on that.

    yep i do so on totalbeauty.com and on shopping sites such as macys, sephora etc. I do it because reviews from other people have helped me a lot when it comes to buying certain products so i figure i should do the same.

    I try to review quite a few products on MUA, but honestly sometimes I get busy and forget. Usually, if it’s a really stand out product or a really bad product, I’ll do a review.

    I review items on MUA since I utilize it myself. I find it a helpful tool, though I don’t treat it like the gospel, since an MA might be trained to sell the item and not have any experience with it whatsoever. Of course, you have to take reviews with a grain of salt.

  10. I will be doing so soon when I have plenty of time on my blog =]

  11. Josie

    I write reviews on Sephora, especially if the product made claims that it did not produce

  12. I usually write reviews on Sephora, and I started a blog up a while ago (www.lifeiscouture.com) but I recently just started writing more reviews and putting up martini recipes because usually I’m doing my makeup when I go out and that usually means I have a drink in my hand to get me ready for the night lol. I know I like to check reviews on sephora and here before I buy something so its always good to help out!!!!

  13. Marlena

    MUA all the way. I will never buy anything without checking reviews on MUA first. I personally don’t review everything I try, but if a product is really good, or really bad, I’ll review it.

  14. Kayte

    I don’t write reviews persay but if someone asks questions and I have an answer I’ll help them out. And to my friends I don’t really market specific products, I just try and get them interested in makeup period. I have this reputation as “The makeup girl” now. LOL and looking at the past 6 month credit card statments, I can kinda see why.

  15. Always do on makeupalley
    I’m always looking on there before i buy a product and i think it’s only fair that i should contribute :)
