Fake reviews.

I get the feeling that 70% of the reviews on Sephora.com are fake-- posted by the product distrubutor. I always click on the user and see if they've reviewed other items or not.. I mean, almost every product has at least 4 stars total. That seems a little unlikely. It bothers me.... Luckily they have a great return policy so you can try things out yourself. Thoughts?

Re: Fake reviews.

I agree.  I'm more likely to write a review when I like something and very few when I don't.  Also because most of the time I research a product first before buying unless its the few random buys

Re: Fake reviews.

Very true research is alway a good thing. 

Re: Fake reviews.

I haven't actually noticed my negative reviews get deleted on Sephora's website, but they are harder to find.  I cross check everything with Makeup Alley just to be safe.  

 

I think overall, Sephora is probably one of the less aggressive websites at filtering negative review.  Ever been to the website for any specific brand?  Nary a negative review in sight!  Smiley Happy

Re: Fake reviews.

I have had Sephora delete my negative reviews 2 out of 2 times.  It's a shame this potentially great resource can't be taken seriously because there isn't integrity in the system. 

Re: Fake reviews.

It's funny because the four review oned always say how wonderful the produvt is and you're like: how come not 5? 

Re: Fake reviews.

You know I take reviews with a grain of salt and always read the reviews from lowest to highest.  But since being on the BT found that the information and advice I receive here greatly outweighs the information on the product page. Example - I was thinking about buying the OCC Lip Tars. And user nini831 posted two 5 star reviews of the same product with no other reviews???? I don know seems fishy to me! Anyway, based on some posts I read here, they are very drying!!!!! My lips tend to be dry to begin with.  I am glad I was able to read that feedback on BT and I feel it helped me make a more educated decision.

Re: Fake reviews.

i hate OCC liptars! i've heard nothing but good reviews and i know i'm not the only one! i got black dahlia thinking it would be dark and it came out like a really light purple red, it wasent pigmented and it barley lasted an hour. 

Re: Fake reviews.

Wow! I always read the reviews. Sad to know if they are fake. I always write reviews on products that I love, hardly ever do I write on products I don't. I think I will. Smiley Happy 

Re: Fake reviews.

Usually I'll see if I can find the item on makeupalley too, they tend to keep most reviews and I can see how they add up Smiley Happy Plus the users on there are very critical!

Re: Fake reviews.

after reading this  and researching my reviews here;seems to me the higher the $ for product more stars it gets...

some of my neg reviews don't get posted...

some people neg post on truthful  and coherent product reviews saying it was "unhelpful" -reminds me of high school.

 

for the person who typed about makeup alley- thank you I appreciate the info/went there.
