Over A Year of Empties: Finished Product Reviews from November 2016 through January 2018

I cannot believe how quickly time has passed since I last reviewed my empty products. This has been hard time with a lot of loss so my mindset was not focused on beauty as much as it usually is. During 2017, I barely ever wore makeup, although I continued to collect some for the day I once again had the desire to spend quality time getting ready. Since this was a year of bare minimum pampering (other than moisturizers, which I consider a necessity), I have a lot less than I usually would. It is still important that I tell you what I thought of the items I finished and saved (as I spent a lot of time between two houses and hotels this year so I did not save all of my empties).

L’Oreal Consumer Testing Lipstick Informational Survey and My Freebies

See recent L’Oreal Consumer Testing articles.

I love many brands under the L’Oreal umbrella, so I jumped at the chance to join The L’Oreal Consumer Testing Panel.  Panel members have the opportunity to test L’Oreal products for free.  Short qualification surveys determine eligibility in a program.  If selected for a panel, follow the step by step directions to see it to completion.  In addition to receiving testing products for free, you will receive compensation upon completion.  Compensation varies based on the study you participate in.  It can range from very little value for lower end studies to hundreds of dollars worth of products for higher end studies.

I log in to the portal around 3-4 times a week.  You can log in less often or every day if you’d like.   Some days there are no surveys on my dashboard.  If I see any surveys, I will attempt them.  Qualification surveys usually take about two minutes.  They’re looking for a a small number from specific groups of people, so the sooner you fill out the survey the better the chance you will grab a spot.  People on the East Coast actually have a bit of an advantage, because the facility in New Jersey posts studies early.  By the time I get up and try to qualify, my group has mostly been filled.  That does not mean it is impossible for us West Coast beauty lovers to qualify.
