Have any of you Makeup Maniacs heard of Revlis Cosmetics? This is a fairly new beauty company that is trying to get their name out to the public.
I first heard of this company via Twitter. The company followed me and I followed back. Shortly after following, I read a tweet asking bloggers to contact the company if they were interested in reviewing their products. Well, of course, I was curious and did not want to pass on the opportunity to receive free cosmetics so I contacted the company. I wrote an email stating that I would LOVE free products from Revlis in exchange for my honest review on my blog.
The company’s owner, Kristin Turman, responded to my email fairly quickly. She was very professional and polite. She attached a color chart and asked for my address so that she can send me some products to test. She then explained that she was waiting for some pigments that may take 2 weeks to receive. She also stated that she would ”shoot you an email when I ship it”.
When about 3 and a half weeks went by with no email from Kristin, I decided to check in with her. I told her that I was still interested in reviewing the products. Kristin emailed me 2 days later stating that she had “mailed it off a while ago”.
Although I knew I was getting brushed off, I wanted to believe that the products were just taking long to arrive to my home. I get packages from the US Post Office, Fed Ex, and UPS ALL OF THE TIME, so certainly this package would show.
After another week, I knew I had to give up. I kindly wrote Kristin another email:
Never received anything from your company, but thanks for considering me.
She wrote back: I’m sorry that it got lost in the mail
