As of November 2014, all posts will contain the following flags in compliance with FTC guidelines, and for full transparency:
Press Sample: This flag means that the post contains a product, or products, that I have received to review. The compensation of the product received will not influence the content of the blog. You will have my honest review, good or bad.
Purchased: To separate posts flagged with the above, I also have a button for when I have purchased the item myself.
Affiliate Links: This post may contain links to a third-party vendor where I will receive a small commission if a visitor clicks and purchases an item. This does not increase the cost of the item for you.
Sponsored post: These posts are posts that I have received compensation for. I do not endorse or otherwise review products for compensation, but you will see topical content, giveaways, or advertisements.
Not Another CoverGirl provides content for general information. I personally do not offer any products or represent a particular brand. My reviews are based on my own opinion and all products are featured on either myself or my friends. Please be advised that if you purchase a product mentioned on my blog, you may have a different experience if you have sensitive skin.
EDITORIAL POLICY. Editorial content is written by Laura and her contributors based on personal experience and results. Editorial content is not influenced by advertisers, affiliates, public relation firms, brands, or other individuals unless otherwise noted. Press samples submitted for review are For Consideration Only. The blog and its author do not provide any guarantee of review.
REVIEW POLICY. Reviews are written based on my personal experience with the product and is not influenced by third parties (advertisers, brand representatives, public relation representatives, etc). Receipt of a product does not guarantee a review to be published, but I will never post a defamatory or negative review on The Makeup Blogger. The compensation of product received will never influence the content, topics or posts made in this blog. Complimentary services and press samples never compromise my posts, or influence my reviews. If I have a bad experience or do not like the product result, the product or service will not receive coverage on the pages of Not Another CoverGirl .As the Editor of this site, I consistently work with and try out new hair, makeup, skincare, and nail product submissions for my editorial and artistry work. Many times, my process involves the careful examination of texture, effectiveness, wearability, color payoff, scent, value, packaging, etc. While many of the products and services mentioned in reviews have been submitted for editorial consideration, many of them are from my personal collection and are items/services that I have purchased and use on a regular basis.
ADVERTISING POLICY: All advertising is in the form of advertisements generated by a third party ad network. Those advertisements will always be identified as paid advertisements. I am not compensated to provide opinion on products, services, websites and various other topics. Not Another CoverGirl at times will make use of affiliate links. A commission is earned when a product is purchased using such a link which helps support the continued provision of content on this site. This site is also supported by paid advertisements. We do not accept products for review that seek to restrict our use of affiliate links or advertising.
