I love shopping indie

I'm going to write a post about a woooonderful package I received yesterday, that's an order from another indie company.

Before I do that, I think there are a couple of things I have to state clear since this is the blog from another indie company.

FIRST OF ALL: This is not a regular beauty blog so I won't be doing proper reviews, there are wonderful blogs on the right bar here where you can check indepht reviews on any company. I will just show you what I bought, swatches and will briefly tell you what I think of it.

BUT!!!! This is important, and it's a big difference from a regular beauty blog, I WILL NEVER TALK SHIT ABOUT ANOTHER COMPANY's PRODUCTS. I think it's unfair, disgusting and kind of nasty. One thing is that I'm sick of the activities from a few nasty companies and give my opinions on that and a very different one is that I buy a product from a honest company and don't like it. If I don't like it, I won't talk about it and that's it because I respect everyone's work and would never try to affect their business negatively. This doesn't mean I'm lying to anyone, just that I won't come here and say "I hated ZZZ product from AAA indie company." The only case when I will talk clearly about a company to warn you to stay away from it would be cases like Calypso, I was ripped off by that company and paypal never refunded my money or continued with my dispute. Still, now I'd never buy from anyone if I haven't seen they're honest (that's one of the reasons I love beauty blogs, but you have to know where to look).

I just want to share things I love with my customers and other people interested in my company, and that's the whole point on me swatching, talking and linking you to other company's shop. My intention isn't to review anything, is to say "hey! I got this wonderful customer service and gorgeous products, me happy yay!!!"

I don't believe in competition because every single one of us makes different stuff, and each one is unique on its own. The fact that I make eyeshadows doesn't mean that I can not buy eyeshadows from another company (indie or mainstream). I love shopping from indie makeup and bath companies and will keep on doing that.

I would like to know what you guys think of this.

Do you find appropiate that I talk about other companies here? I'm completely aware of the fact that it isn't a personal blog even though I like to throw in bits from time to time because I find it nice to interact with you and is a fun way for you to know what and who is behind the company.

I think it is ok to talk about the companies in certain contexts. I've never seen you talk out of context.

I think is interesting to talk about other companies you like or other things that are not your products. Agree with what you say of know what and who is behing the company.
