I got an email today about this new Sephora “nature inspired” palette. Right now only V.I.B’s (Very Important Beauty Insider=You spend entirely too much money at Sephora) can purchase it, so I went to look and see what the fuss was about.
Well, when I looked in the comments section, there are a bunch of annoyed V.I.B’s who learned that other (we assume randomly selected, although no one will cop out) V.I.B’s got this palette for free and are giving it wonderful reviews.
The non-comped people are saying that of course the freebie-receivers are only saying nice things about it, presumably in the hope that they will continue getting free things. Some of them are even saying that since Sephora was so unfair in their goodie distribution process, they will boycott the product altogether.
I can sort of see their point, but really, it’s just a palette, people! It certainly wasn’t possible to send a free one to every single V.I.B., and as long as the process was random, I guess I’m OK with it.
What about you? Fair or unfair? A big ado about nothing?
