FAQs

Can I post your pictures on my site? 
I started this blog with the goal of sharing my lip looks, lipsticks, lip art and comics. I work very hard on creating and writing the posts and photographing them. If you are inspired or are sharing it on your blog, please add a link back. For those on Instagram, I’ve always asked that you tag me with credit linking back to my profile. The best app for that is Instarepost, I highly recommend it.
Can I use your images to sell products?
You must get permission from me first. Also you cannot crop, repurpose or remove watermarks when using my images to represent anything. Just because you found it on Google does not mean it belongs to you. Artists have intellectual property rights to their images. If you have a business, you should post ETHICALLY. Logically there was a creator who made that image so you need to give credit to that individual or the artist behind that work and also a percentage of the sales of that product.

Why do your lip swatches look different than when I put it on my lips?
One of my goals in beauty blogging is to provide the best possible representation of the lipstick. As a photographer, I do NOT apply filters to my swatches as that defeats the purpose of swatching.

There are factors such as skin tone, lip undertone, lip prep and lighting as well as differences in computer and mobile devices. 
Firstly, we all have different undertones in our lips and different skin colors. So technically lipstick is NOT going to look EXACTLY the same on you as it does on me.  I also use lipliners whereas sometimes I do not. I post that information along with the swatch.

Secondly, is lip prep. Not everyone applies lipstick in the same fashion. I do lip prep prior to swatching. My lip pictorial has been posted a gazillion times on Instagram showing the steps I take. 

Thirdly, I usually take my shots in indoor studio lighting, outdoor when I can get some sun or with a flash. 

Fourthly, computer monitors and mobile devices may alter the image. Not all technology is created equally.
