Rant: Reviews

Sorry, I had to get this out...


But it bothers me when people write reviews for products based on what they thought or believed the product would do, not necassarily based on what the product actually does. For example when people write about a foundation, BB cream etc, with very little coverage and give it a bad rating although the company claims it is lightweight and sheer. Or on the other hand complaining about the heaviness or such of a full coverage foundation.


Or when people have unrealisitic expectations for a product. For example the tradeoff between between non-sticky or long-lasting lip gloss. Generally a longer lasting gloss will be a little thicker for the shine to last longer.


Or people who give a bad review for something just because the shade doesn't look as great on them. Just because the color isn't flattering doesn't necessarily mean the product itself is bad and deserves a very low rating.


I always take reviews and such with a grain of salt, since how a product works can depend on skin type, application, etc, and place more value on reviews that give an explanation for their review. But it still drives me a teeny bit bonkers when people do that.


Sorry for my little rant. Anyone else agree? Or not?

So cute


Just ordered it so cute I cant wait for it to come



Why do people write reviews BEFORE they see/get the actual item?!?

Re: Rant: Reviews

yum... soap! I'm hoping this is a joke..

Re: Rant: Reviews

I'm wondering if it got in her mouth by accident? Then again, I don't think any soap actually tastes good... 

Re: Rant: Reviews

taste meaning smell?! lol


Re: Rant: Reviews

I finally started writing reviews- but the ones without the exact shade drive me nuts!  Same with the perfume ones that don't give a decent substitute.  I find it useful to know what "family" scents are in.  For instance, if you like Clinique Happy, you may like Aqua di Gioia, etc...

Re: Rant: Reviews

I seriously HOPE it was a joke maybe she did it too see if anyone would notice but still really hoping it was just to be funny because seriously I have that soap and it is an exfoliating  soap with all those little pieces of almond it could be too rough to swallow. SO maybe she saw the almond part and "delicious" and thought what the heck might as well try it Smiley Tongue Who knows?

Re: Rant: Reviews

lol, thanks for sharing, it made my morning!

My friend once worked at Bath & Body Works and had a guy come in shopping for his significant other (can't remember if it was his g/f or wife), and had my friend try a few lotions on her arm so he could smell it rather than go off the scent from the bottle. When she lifted her arm to his nose so he could take a whiff, he ended up licking her arm as to purposely taste it!


She was shocked and taken back!


I guess he thought it was a lickable/flavored lotion and just didn't know any better?

Re: Rant: Reviews

Oh my, I once read a review on the Urban Decay website about their eyeshawdows, And i wish i took a picture, cause i was like what??? It said something along the lines that the eyeshawdows did not taste good at all, she was soooo disappointed because other eyeshawdows taste so much better...? Maybe she will be on that Strange addiction show along with that lady on the show that eats nail polish..
