© Pink Sith 2008-2013 all rights reserved.
Although many of the items reviewed on The Pink Sith Blog are purchased by me, I do accept products for consideration from brands and public relations representatives. Receiving a product does not mean that it will be reviewed. While I attempt to accept only products of interest, the acceptance of a product does not guarantee a favorable review. Reviews are done based on honest assessments of the products, and this blog's content is not pre-approved by PR representatives or brands. Brands and Public Relations Representatives that wish to impose such limitations on products will not be accepted for consideration. All reviews are expressed with complete honesty. In other words; just because it's free does not mean it gets a glowing, raving review. The Pink Sith Blog's editorial timeline is currently 4-6 weeks from receipt of a product but may be later or earlier depending upon unforeseeable life events. In December 2009, all items received from brands and PR representatives were disclosed as such. Beginning late March 2013 a disclosure graphic will appear after the first image in the review and at the end of the review. The post will also be tagged with a disclosure. This is done in order to be compliant with the FTC regulations for electronic advertising. For more information, click HERE and read below.
At times, I make use of affiliate links. The site is also supported by paid advertisements and is a member of the GLAM Network. Occasionally, I am contacted by brands and public relations representatives that express a desire to have their product or service featured in a product performance review and will submit a press sample for that purpose, but that does not constitute a contract for a published review of the product or service in a favorable light. Other times the brand or public relations representative will ask for me to publish a pre-written post regarding a product or service I have not personally tested. Such reviews are labeled as "Sponsored" and the label is in the post title and tagged at the end. Such Sponsored Posts are rare and are taken on in a case by base basis. You will fully be made aware before even reading the post, that is a Sponsored Post and you are under no obligation to read it or click on any links embedded in the post.
Occasionally images found on the web, believed to be in the public domain, are used on this site. I don’t claim to be the owner of such images. All visual content are copyrighted to their respectful owner. If you are the owner of an image and want it removed, please, email me and I will do so as soon as possible.

I am not affiliated with any beauty company or PR firm. This blog is a hobby and my passion. I do this for fun. I do not do this to “become rich” or get “free stuff”. Should I ever become “rich” form this hobby you might want to check the temperature and look overhead because hell will most certainly hell will have frozen over, and pigs will be flying.
