THANK YOU SEPHORA!

I want to thank Candace and the BT mods and Sephora for giving out a free eyeshadow for those who participated in the swatch to get a free shadow sweepstakes here on beauty talk! I am absolutely THRILLED with my shadow, I couldn't have picked out a better one myself and I see myself wearing it every single day!

 

Thank you so much!!

Re: THANK YOU SEPHORA!

Why be sad about a free shadow? It didn't say anywhere in the sweepstakes that we would get to pick the color that's sent to us. If you don't like it, give it away to a friend or family member. I hope Sephora doesn't see comments like this because it does sound ungrateful....and I hope that they don't cancel any future giveaways because of it.

Re: THANK YOU SEPHORA!

When they first announced it, that was what i interpreted from it. To swatch three colors you like and you will receive one... I thought that was the whole point of swatching 3 that i liked the most. But then they changed and altered the information to extend the giveaway and add rules and regulations, and i guess they changed it up after that.
Or who knows, maybe that was just what i interpreted from it.
Don't get me wrong, I am grateful to have been given anything for free, it just wasn't what I was expecting, therefore i guess i am disapointed at what I was given. And it's not so much that it wasnt those exact colors, because if it was a blue, a purple, a green, black, brown, those i wouldnt have said anything about.. Its just that-that pink color doesn't look well on me (nor reds), because i have tried it in the past.
But I guess like @bittersweet86 said, I will have to try using it as something else. Or like you said give it away.
I am not mad at anyone, neither am i mad at Sephora or Candace, or any of the BT mods that were in charge... Im glad i got ANYTHING because i never do.
I honestly apologize for sounding ungrateful :'(

Re: THANK YOU SEPHORA!

aww, JenBlush, I could see that.  If you thought the entire time that part of the promotion was to get one of the shadows you'd swatched, I can see the sinking heart when you opened your package and got something different. Smiley Sad

 

But considering your username, maybe it's fate to see whether it works as a blush or not! Smiley Happy

Re: THANK YOU SEPHORA!

haha!! yes!! i mean, the color is really pigmented and great!! So lets see! maybe it will come around! 

thank you for understanding!

Re: THANK YOU SEPHORA!

Cute...I just got it!

Re: THANK YOU SEPHORA!

Oh okay, no worries Smiley Very Happy

 

I don't usually wear pink shadow, but I do have UD Woodstock which sounds similar to yours---a darker, vibrant pink. Such a nice color, I got it cuz kimmi raved about it.

Re: THANK YOU SEPHORA!

I mean, I got the joke...lol

Re: THANK YOU SEPHORA!

Hi JenBlush! Thank you for your feedback, and I really am truly sorry that you don't like the shadow that you were sent. The rules did always state that the shadows were chosen at random (that part wasn't changed), but since it was just me running the giveaway, I thought that it would be nice if I could pick a shadow for each person that they would like and wear, so I spent a couple of weeks going through all of the photos and trying to coordinate everyone's shadow with what they swatched (or in some cases, requested). After all, we want you to wear it!

 

The issue was that I didn't have access to every color in the assortment, and of the 3 you swatched I think I only had 3 or so of one color and they had already been allotted, so I gave you Prom Queen because I thought it would be close to the purple shadow you swatched and you would like it (I really did spend this much time thinking about everyone's shadow, I get a little OCD with stuff like this. Smiley Happy). 

 

So again, I'm sorry you didn't like it. I hope you can least get some use out of it as a blush or lipgloss, and when we do the next giveaway I hope you get something that you'll actually like!

 

Best,

Candace

Re: THANK YOU SEPHORA!

Aww, I'm reading this and I think the mods are so sweet and thoughtful!!!!!  I just love you guys - and BT of course!!!!!!!!

Re: THANK YOU SEPHORA!

Aww :'( I'm sorry! great! i feel even worse now! >.< ugh

 

I guess that was my interpretation of it, which lead me to high hopes! I did try it out as a blush though, and it doesn't look bad! So at least i did get some use out of it!

 

Thank you for all your effort though! Sorry that I'm sounding so bratty and ungrateful! D:
