Re: BEAUTY NEWS

Morphe coming to Sephora Canada

cross posted

Screen Shot 2018-10-19 at 12.33.10 PM.png

 

Re: BEAUTY NEWS

I'm a little torn about how I feel about Morphe.  I've been curious, even if it was just so I could sip the same flavor of Kool-Aid as everyone else, but it was never a brand that was super high on my radar.  I'd never jump through any sort of hoops to get a Morphe palette, no matter how I felt the shades would compliment my life.  I'm at the point now where it just doesn't appeal to me... I have enough color to last me years and would rather focus on implementing a few shades here and there.

It's definitely an interesting choice.  I'd have hoped it would be another indie brand, something new and fresh.  

Re: BEAUTY NEWS

Glad to see that our friends up north will have the option to purchase Morphe at Sephora.

However, I have to say, between Morphe's heavy budget for social media sponsorship and product pushing, uneven track record on quality, and several instances of business decisions prioritizing revenue above customer experience, I'm personally hesitant to support the brand and purchase any items.

Re: BEAUTY NEWS

100% agreed. 

 

Morphe has done some pretty questionable things and have shown time and time again that they aren't always the best at watching out for the well being of their customers and quality, but instead the well being of their pockets. 

RE: Re: BEAUTY NEWS

That’s awesome!!! I enjoy Morphe regardless of all the drama that surrounds the brand. They make good makeup at very affordable prices.

Re: RE: Re: BEAUTY NEWS

@darlyndar  I don't know much about them TBH... It's not a brand I ever wanted to try. I do find it a odd choice for Sephora though because they keep saying they are a prestige company and this IMO cheapens them if that's the way they want to be seen. Can't have it both ways you know.

Re: RE: Re: BEAUTY NEWS

Jumping in @veronika23. Agree. I’m underwhelmed with them in general. Lipsticks feel similar to Colourpop to me and shadows meh but that’s just me! Sorry to budge in guys! ☺️

Re: RE: Re: BEAUTY NEWS

Jump in anytime @Sunnysmom! We are here to have a discussion Smiley Happy I'm also not a huge fan of CP but do have a few pieces that I needed to have because I loved the color. I'm happy with what I have but I don't really shop the brand... you know what I mean. Smiley Happy

Re: RE: Re: BEAUTY NEWS

Thank you @veronika23. Just didn’t want to be impolite! ☺️ Yes I do know what you mean! Sometimes a girl just has to. 😬😉

Re: BEAUTY NEWS

Ha! thanks for the tip @CookieGirl1. I had to look them up because I couldn't imagine what PSL decals would look like, and they are so cute.Capture.PNG

how cute is that! @CookieGirl1

Re: BEAUTY NEWS

Cross-posting from reddit. Someone over there posted a PSA regarding the shady business tactics employed by Sunday Riley to push their products. Apparently, Sunday Riley has their staff creating Sephora accounts and adding fake reviews of new products in order to build hype and "generate confidence". The OP provided an example of an email the staff would receive with detailed instructions about what to include in their reviews and how to build their profile's credibility by posting reviews of other products. I wouldn't be surprised if this is a widespread practice by other brands as well.

 

I have to say, if this is true, I feel very disappointed. I have always suspected that Sephora has had an issue with fake reviews or reviews being deleted, but this is just a whole new level of deception. This combined with all of the recent information about influencer sponsorships etc, really makes me wonder who is actually reliable anymore...

Re: BEAUTY NEWS

@Kim888 I'm not sure if this was posted elsewhere on BIC (if so, I can delete it so as not to have redundant posts).  I found this on SR homepage:

We hear you.

Your feelings about this situation matter to us and we want to respond with actions, not words. First, you can be assured that the only way that our brand will communicate on all channels, including Sephora.com, is with our official brand badge. Second, we are going to have our business practices and company culture audited by a third-party and will publicly release the results. Lastly, we are actively listening and would love your constructive feedback on what you would like to see from us. Please send any feedback to conversation@sundaryrileyDOTcom and we will continue to keep this dialogue open on ways that we can meet your expectations. We can do better.

Thank you for listening.

Re: BEAUTY NEWS

@greeneyedgirl107 Thanks for posting that! I think the tone of that response is definitely more professional 

Re: BEAUTY NEWS

@Kim888 Thank you for sharing their response to the email!  I never take things that I see on Reddit all that seriously, you never know just what a disgruntled employee might fabricate to try to settle the score a little bit.  I've been waiting to see what the brand would say and I'm going to jump on that disappointed train.  I have supported plenty of brands/people who have done questionable things but my reaction is more based off of their integrity and how they address/own up to their actions.

Two wrongs do not make a right.  False, negative reviews do not give the brand IMO the right to forge positive reviews just to ensure that their products still seem extremely well rounded and loved.  There are so many other ways where they could have continued ensuring positive word of mouth and remained more transparent with their customers, which would be easier to overlook.  The brand should have had enough confidence in their product to not have to go to that extreme.  And standing on the grounds of "well, there are so many good reviews that it couldn't possibly be all our own employees" is not a sufficient enough argument for me.  

Re: BEAUTY NEWS

Thanks for sharing this @Kim888!  I agree with what everyone has posted.  

 

The only thing I have to add is that this makes me appreciate complimentary samples all the more.  That way, I can try a product before buying.   Sure, a foil is small and many times you need to try a product more than once to decide if it's for you - especially with skincare.  But, it's a start.

 

Also, I know there have been posts about people complaining about returns that have been denied.  I do wonder if false reviews could play a small part in this - a product can be talked up, and then lead to more people buying (and later returning) a product.  Of course, I know there are deliberate negative reviews that skew things as well.  

Re: BEAUTY NEWS

There may be deliberate negative reviews, but they don't last long. Sephora is notorious for deleting negative reviews. Think about the last time you even saw an item with an average of less than three stars. 

...and that SephoraxPantone green nail ring that was on sale for literally years doesn't count, lol

Re: BEAUTY NEWS

This is a very widespread practice unfortunately, but their response to it was terrible.

I wish you could filter sephora reviews by (a) received product for free, (b) received free sample and (c) verified purchase.

 

Influenster reviews are annoying sometimes because some people feel like they need to give good reviews in order to receive more products, however I appreciate that there is transparency in their reviews. I have received a few products from them myself and I have no problem giving a 1 star review lol.

 

I still read reviews, but I rather search BIC and check if any of the fellow community members tried the product before.
