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?

 

(I especially love the *my fave!!!* comment above)

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

Wow....TWO dupers???

 

Firstly, I can't believe it, I mean c'mon, it's just an eye shadow folks, if you can't make it to swatch your own shades, don't go stealing, I mean do you need an eye shadow THAT badly?

 

Second, wow to the fact that they didn't even edit/change anything in your pic, Drrragon! I mean, left the watch and everything! And c'mon, would a mere flip of the pic, crop, and filter REALLY change up Beautytester's pic????

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

Yeah leaving the watch in the pic, isn't that so hilarious?  C'mon forgers, at least make a good effort and crop the obviously incriminating details out of the fake pic!

 

It did take me a couple minutes to compare the beautytester pics to confirm that they are in fact the same though so the flip wasn't a bad idea.....

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

They even left the same TIME on the watch. I mean, identical photo, swatches, watch, positioning of the hand, AND the same time??? I don't think so!

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

LOL who knew you had a twin? You both decided to swatch the same colors at the same time, at the same angle the pictures was taken, and have the same watch. 

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

yes and then we both decided to post our pictures upside down! LOL

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

From the looks of it, they made an account just for the eyeshadows. Seriously don't go stealing other people's pictures like this. If you took it at least give credit you know?

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

It's just so blatant! That would like someone taking your avi photo and being all "Totally, that's me!!!! I'm in that pic!"...Uh, no!

 

*face palm*

 

If someone has to be that desperate to create an account, steal images, all to get a free single shadow, for pete's sake they might as well have gone to a Sephora and swatched stuff themselves!

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

Exactly. PREACHHHH girl PREACH 

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

Haha, you're a riot! Smiley Very Happy

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

I hope this doesnt negatively affect the rest of us...I still want to go in and do my swatches, and get my free shadow. Smiley Sad

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

As long as you're not "going in" as in copying and repasting into the shadow thread I'm sure you're fine.

 

Dishonesty never pays off in the long run, I would hate to have something like this make Sephora reconsider awesome giveaways in the future by the chance that some people want to steal photos. *hopes a few bad apples doesn't ruin it for the rest of us*

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

Ghetto

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

For realz

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

I'm totally doing this next time Smiley Wink Why drive my butt all the way to the mall? sheesh.

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

Could you imagine? The entire thread would be the same pic just rotated, cropped, or filtered a different way but it would be the same 3 shades that EVERYONE "swatched"! Smiley Tongue

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

Lol. I really would like to think someone just swatches the same shadows as me, but then I noticed 1. My swatch pic in their album, and 2. The veins on the hands are identical. It's not too hard to find someone with the same skintone, but identical veins?

A least she made some effort. The first cheater I caught as a teacher submitted his friend's hw without even changing his name. I mean I'm not super observant, but lawls.

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

Vein twins!!!! >.<

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

That is so lame.

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

Duuude...SO not cool. Thanks for calling this out, drrragon! The good news is that I'm the one checking for authenticity on all of the photos so I will make sure to look out for cheaters!

 

And props to you guys for actually going in and checking out the shadows, we really hope you liked them!

 

*Just added this to the post, so people know not to expect an eyeshadow if they're posting a copy:

Please note: For recipients to be eligible to receive a free eyeshadow, photos MUST be original, taken by the recipient in the store. Dupes or copies from other posters will not be accepted!

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

Kudos to the update on the post, Candace!

 

I swatched a couple of shades before the giveaway came out and was really surprised and impressed by the texture and color pay off! When the giveaway came out it was more of an incentive to check out more colors!

 

Kiddie Pool is gorgeous! Super bold and shimmery!

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

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.
