A Change ~ No More Reviews

This is just a formal announcement that I will no longer be doing Reviews. Now before you go 'Whatthaf....!!!', please hear me out first. I will still talk about things I like and don't like, but there just won't be long reviews anymore. The Good....The Bad.....The synonym searching in my head....The bullet points..... The boring.
I will only concentrate on giving you clear pictures, swatches and of course I will jot down a few lines about the products.
I've always hated doing reviews, because there's always this pressure to be 100% right and 110% sure about what I'm saying. Every time I start to write one, I feel like I'm putting myself in a box, and I can only get out of it if I'd seen every scratch inside that box.
I take hours and hours to click and edit/re-size photos, and when I'm done, I just want to move on to other things asap, but reviews hold me back. Sometimes a review gets delayed just because I'm unsure. I don't know everything. You see REVIEW in the title, you assume the writer has ripped apart that product, and put it back together. I may have done that, but I'm too impatient to sit and talk about it in detail.

Review: The one thing I hate to do in this blog, so I'll have to let it go, with everything else I hate. I don't even read them much in other blogs. I look at the pictures, I read a few lines, and I know if I want that product or not. 
I also do not like the word 'R-e-v-i-e-w' 
Hope you can understand my decision, and don't worry, I will do posts like Best & Worst products, so that way you still get mini revie--- you know.
Btw, would you still like me to "Rate" the products? I know some of you like to see numbers, so I'm not sure if I should stop doing that too. Let me know!

  2. I hope you do more looks like the last post though. They're so creative and it seems like you like those more. :)

    I think you should mention just a little about the product instead, a rating will definitely be good.

  3. Ratings are good. Don't make yourself do extensive reviews since you don't like to do them!

  5. Glad To Hear it! :D

    But, Your Reviews Have Always Been Short n Accurate.. As I Like. Though Some Products Do Need Lengthy descriptions.

    I Can Totally Understand Your Point..

    "I take hours and hours to click and edit/re-size photos, and I when I'm done, I want to move on to other things asap, but reviews hold me back"

    Excited To See Your Next Post! :D

  8. You go girl. Do what YOU love. You sound like you know what you want and your blogging is getting so much better, so stick with what makes you feel good. Honestly, I know what it feels like to blog what you think people want to read instead of what you love. It makes me feel so....stuck...ughh...okay, sorry for the mini rant.
    I personally looked at the pictures mostly for colour swatches and read the ratings, so if you elected to keep ratings, they would be good. Your LOTD posts are very creative, and getting better and better.

  13. I agree with your point of view 100% and share the same feeling about long detailed reviews this is why I only do them once a week

    ReplyDelete
  14. I completely understand what you mean, I never do long reviews. I click loads of pic and explain what i like and dont like and whether you should buy it or not :)

  16. You made the change sound so wonderful! :) I love it!
    When you anyway plan to write a little about the product, I guess the ratings can stay.

    Quick glance at the pictures, quick glance at the ratings... read 2 lines. Thats all I so anyway. :)

  17. Hmm, I personally would still go with ratings, at least. A picture may speak a thousand words but a little bit of text may take it miles further.

  18. I understand how you feel, and ratings would be much appreciated. :)

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
