CHEATERS on "Swatch to get a Free Eyeshadow" thread!

Ok, I thought this was more amusing than anything.  Last night I noticed someone posted my swatch pic as their own.  So I cross checked and found at least one other instance of cheating.  Anyone else notice this?

you were right haha silly and lazy cheaters

Re: CHEATERS on "Swatch to get a Free Eyeshadow" thread!

-_- oh newcomers....

Re: CHEATERS on "Swatch to get a Free Eyeshadow" thread!

I So thought about checking also cause that idea crossed my mind that someone might be cheating!!! Major Props for pointing it out!!

Re: CHEATERS on "Swatch to get a Free Eyeshadow" thread!

Wow.  That is crazy.  It's just an eyeshadow.  The people who copied the pictures probably created the account just to get a free shadow, and they'll never return to the forum again.  Not even to ask a question on the forum.

 

Awesome job pointing it out!  I'm glad they extended the giveaway.  I'll be going to Sephora on Friday, so I might as well swatch some shadows while I'm there.

Re: CHEATERS on "Swatch to get a Free Eyeshadow" thread!

Seems like a whole lot of work to create the accounts and steal the pictures for 1 free eyeshadow! haha I wish I had that kind of spare time! Smiley Wink

 

Happy to hear the culprits won't be rewarded for their stealthy (or not so stealthy) attempts!

Re: CHEATERS on "Swatch to get a Free Eyeshadow" thread!

lylysa----Of course not, I would *never* do that. >_<  These people better not ruin everything for the rest of us good folk out here.

Re: CHEATERS on "Swatch to get a Free Eyeshadow" thread!

Oh oh! If you use sponge tip to write sephoramusthave using 3 eyeshadow colors, I bet no one would dare to copy it, or it would be the easiest to spot copy ever.

Re: CHEATERS on "Swatch to get a Free Eyeshadow" thread!

Thats a good idea! Except that I think that using eyeliner or a lip stick in pencil form would be much easier to write my name with.

Re: CHEATERS on "Swatch to get a Free Eyeshadow" thread!

True dat, especially since your username is a bit long.

 

I kind of think it would be hilarious to mail the copycats a fake single sephora eyeshadow. =X

Re: CHEATERS on "Swatch to get a Free Eyeshadow" thread!

Or better yet....an *empty* compact of the Sephora single shadows, just to teach them a lesson!

 

Re: CHEATERS on "Swatch to get a Free Eyeshadow" thread!

Oh! It would be pretty if you write out your BT name with an eyeliner on the edge of the shadow swatches, like a written watermark. It would be so cool if the swatches is an eyelook combo and the eyeliner is the color that you think will go well with the combo look.

Re: CHEATERS on "Swatch to get a Free Eyeshadow" thread!

You have brain cells, and know better Smiley Tongue. It's just so crazy to put all this effort into "stealing" photos, when they could have just put effort into going to a Sephora...not to mention once inside an actual store they can touch and get the hands-on experience with testing product!

Re: CHEATERS on "Swatch to get a Free Eyeshadow" thread!

I saw one picture that seemed like it was copied but it wasn't this one. 

Re: CHEATERS on "Swatch to get a Free Eyeshadow" thread!

THE CHEATERS STRIKE AGAIN!!!!!

(i don't know why but this is soooooo much fun)

Re: CHEATERS on "Swatch to get a Free Eyeshadow" thread!

SERIOUSLY?!?!???!!

 

Good gravy! Kudos for you for playing shadow detective, Drrragon! 

 

I'm feeling like this is getting out of hand! It's just a free eye shadow, folks! If you've got the energy and effort to create a profile and steal a photo, you can put that same energy and effort toward heading to your local Sephora and swatching 3 shades!

 

>.< Ahhhhh!

Re: CHEATERS on "Swatch to get a Free Eyeshadow" thread!

lawls. I still like my (cheater) better because she actually put in effort. I feel like you can totally write a program to detect stoken images. Even if you crop, there's still the pixel/resolution, color contrast, pattern matching and such.

Re: CHEATERS on "Swatch to get a Free Eyeshadow" thread!

Haha, we can have a "Best Cheater Awards"....all nominees will win nothing, and the grand winner will win even more nothing!

 

 

Re: CHEATERS on "Swatch to get a Free Eyeshadow" thread!

grand winner will get a fake Sephora Eyeshadow. =P

Re: CHEATERS on "Swatch to get a Free Eyeshadow" thread!

LOL "Best Cheater Awards"!!!  Love it!!!

Re: CHEATERS on "Swatch to get a Free Eyeshadow" thread!

"Hello, and welcome to the first annual Sephora's Best Cheater Awards! It's a crazy honor to bring to you the top picks on the board to highlight those who just decided 'Yup, gonna steal this pic! *right click, save image as, create own profile, upload, and try to collect*"

 

>.<

 

Once again, *face palm*

Re: CHEATERS on "Swatch to get a Free Eyeshadow" thread!

they should win an empty box container.. just the box... Get their hopes up and then they cry when they see there's nothing there!
