Disclosure Statement for Beauty411.net

  • I blog because I want to share my love of makeup, skincare, fragrance…the beauty world in general.  I may be furnished product to review, sample or try from the manufacturer, vendor or public relations. The product furnished is generally a “lab sample” and not in the traditional retail packaging.  The following tag will appear on the post to denote products provided in this manner.
  • Just because a product was provided from a manufacturer or Public Relations firm, does not guarantee that I will write about it or review it. Products received as such are for consideration only. Reviews are subjective. I will not be pressured by anyone to write a review, good or bad. The opinions expressed in Beauty411 are mine alone, based on my experience with a product. Your experiences may vary with any of the products written about.
  • Sponsored posts or content will clearly be identified as such. Although a post may be compensated, all opinions are strictly my own.
  • Because of the large number of promotional requests that I receive on a daily basis, content such as Facebook promos, contests, giveaways, new apps or other sales announcements are considered advertorial and as such, are Sponsored content.  These posts/tweets will clearly state “sponsored”. Email for rates.
  • I choose the products that I write about based on products that interest me and products that I think will be of interest to my readers.  I don’t let my editorial content be dictated by anyone else except me.
  • At this time, I do have relationships with Affiliate Marketers.  Products that appear in affiliate ads should not be considered “endorsements” by Beauty411, but the affiliates I choose to work with are retailers I would generally shop at.
