Are you paid for your reviews?
No, I am not paid to do reviews and never have been. I am sometimes sent products by companies for consideration but I don’t guarantee reviews, although most of the time I do write one!
Are your reviews unbiased?
Yes, always. When I say I love something, I do! And when I say I don’t, it’s true!
What happens when a company sends you something to give away, aren’t you forced to talk them up in that case?
No, I am not. So far, I’ve never had to give away anything I didn’t truly love or believe in. Besides, I usually find a way to make a product work, so I’ll never be giving away something that’s not useable.
What about sponsored posts?
So far, I haven’t had sponsored posts (posts where I am compensated for putting up -usually- brand-written content). However, I am open to them if it’s a brand I like or an exciting opportunity for the readers or the blog but would always mark them as such.
I am a company or represent one and would like to send you something to review and/or giveaway. How do I reach you?
Just send an email to makeupby.anna (at) ymail (dot) com and I’ll give you all the necessary contact and shipping information!
What is an affiliateship and what is up with the banners on the right?
An affiliateship means I have a business relationship with the company whose banners you see on my site. If you click on them and go shopping on their site coming from Makeup by Anna, I get a commission (which varies depending on the retailer). But only if you purchase something via the links on my site. There are no extra costs or steps involved for you, the buyer, if you purchase something via an affiliate link!
I am a company or represent one and would like to propose you an affiliateship. How do I reach you?
Just send an email to makeupby.anna (at) ymail (dot) com and I’ll give you all the necessary information!
Do you disclose when you are reviewing/giving away/posting something that hasn’t been purchased by you or written by you?
Yes, always. I always have a post and product specific disclaimer at the end of a piece that contains anything like that. So far, everything on this blog has been written by me. Should that ever change, it will be very clearly marked!
My biggest promise to my readers is honesty. Honesty in what I write and recommend and honesty as to what business relationships I have with third parties. If not otherwise mentioned, the products I talk about have been purchased by me for the blog. However, business relationships are important to this blog, as they help me provide more quality content and fun giveaways and cool shopping codes and offers for my readers, without whom this blog would be nothing.
