And another: http://roxblogger.com/?p=418 EXACT same items as their video.

 

Not the exact image but it has a lot of the things shown in their box!!

 

 

LMAO! If you look closely to the little cylinder that is hidden by the pink stuff, you can see it says something BOX. Gee, the Glossy Box picture from the 2nd blog has something in a little cylinder that says GLOSSYBOX. I wonder. tonton.gif

I know, I think its a mirror, at least that's what I saw when I was searching for the original pic.

 

I went through 8 pages on google of pictures of the boxes and didn't find the original but its pretty obvious its a glossy box.

Another question, how do they get Sephora samples? I'm fairly certain that they do not wholesale their samples. I think I'll ask Sephora if they are partnered with "Posh Pod" in any way.

LOL honestly, some of the pictures look like someone just took a picture of their collection or what they used today. In the very first picture of the first video, the brush looks used. I think they just snapped what they thought would look cute and added it..

 

Now, is that even their picture? lol

A reply:

 

 

Dear Vanessa,   I fear you are not understanding my point or our reasoning so perhaps this will help you.  Many designers have asked that we either not post authentic pictures or we use the stock photo's that are altered.  The bottom line is this.  Once the photo is sent to us we do have rights to it and we are all working together to avoid counterfeiting.  You can view this link and see the well known Delortae Agency as we are not the only business of this opinion & it will NOT stop with us. 
  http://delortaeagency.co.uk/Authenticification.aspx     http://www.luxuryonlinestore.net/Luxury-Independent-Authentication-Appraisal-Specialist.html   I have tried to help you to understand as I felt it would be important to you in the industry because you will be seeing it a great deal more since the international suit has been filed by Chanel.  Photo's will either be left out totally or there will be large alterations.  This is not a bad thing, this is a good thing battling against crime.    Deformation is something we do not take lightly here at The posh pod especially when we have explained honestly and have been very professional & patient.   Please see the quotes below from the website link I sent you.   "You will not see pictures how authentic items should look here, as we believe this information is being used by counterfeiters to produce even more sophisticated products and deceive buyers further"   This group is a very well known authentication & appraisal specialists. we do not want to stop the use of any photo's so we chose to use a different form as a sneak peak.  It is all over our site, Face book, and our email what our Guarantee is.     Posh Pod is doing what is right for the designer community.  If this is not understood now, it soon will be.   This is the last of the conversations regarding authentication I will be having as I feel I have more then adequately explained our reasoning in addition to allowing you to see what is happening within the designer industry to attempt to protect branding while the Chanel case is being litigated.  We will continue to follow in suit with others that are being conscientious for brand protecting.  Being attacked for it will not change it.  However, we will not continue to be accused of criminal activity when the exact opposite is occurring.  The damaging comments of an unknowing person or group of people who refuse to listen to facts will be taken very seriously especially when there is no actual product out to make criminal claims against. Our Pods will be out as of April 10th to our shipper and will have tracking to those that have active memberships.   I sincerely hope this clears up any misunderstanding you have with our policy of special branding/copyright materials on particular designers.    If you have any further questions you may email me or call me at (888)750-7780 Ext 3120 (Customer Service)   Warm Regards,   Silver

I don't understand how a designer is asking them to use pictures of FAKE items to prove a point. Uhm, no. If a designer is providing you with SAMPLES of a product they would be more than happy to allow you to use their images so that the consumer gets a great idea of what they're getting.

I know, I already canceled my paypal subscription and I am going to still receive this one box, I am fine with that.

 

I feel like shes belittling me or something when I have LEGITIMATE questions, everyone is going to want to know the answers. I will not pay you to be rude to me.

 

If I was that way with my customers I wouldn't HAVE customers!

From Beauty Talk:

 

 

Hi lowrah,

 

Sephora is not currently affiliated with any monthly beauty sampling services. I just did a search on the company and it looks very fraudulent. From what I've read a lot of people are reporting that it's a big scam.

Whimsically yours,

Janine

Honestly? With their response, I'd just be blunt and tell them that they used a Glossy Box picture, and all the other fishy going ons. Are they rated at all with the Better Business Bureau?
 

(Edit: Didn't see the part about you going off on her. Go for it!)

Vanessa, be really careful with this woman. She dropping in words like "defamation" and hinting at unfounded accusations of criminal activity. You have neither slandered or defamed the company nor have you accused them of anything, but this woman is definitely inching close to making accusations herself. She is protesting far too much as well!

That doesn't look like anything victoria's secret would be out, imo.

That makes me wonder if they read here.

 

I never said anything about it.. I was going to screen cap them but forgot.

 

I feel bad in a way, I don't want her to feel attacked or anything but I had real questions and she kind of jumped down my throat then just canceled my payment, maybe its for the better.

Makes me wish I had screencapped them.

Oh you know what, she does read here. Zadi posted it on their wall asking them a question, they probably came back here and that might be where she got the idea that unknowing persons or groups were talking about her items being fake ):

I'm sure she is reading here. I don't think its a good idea to ever mention ~we were discussing at MuT~ because that is a good way to make it seem like an attack. That said, I still don't trust this company and haven't since the first time I saw their website. If she wants to change our minds, maybe she should take into consideration the criticisms we are giving, and be slightly less defensive (and rude) to paying customers.

    • Whether you’re a college girl who will be waking up for an 8am class and going out at night, or a super mom who will be juggling work, taking her kids to school, making dinner, and soccer games, makeup that lasts all day is extremely beneficial! Who wants to worry about reapplying five times a day? If you follow these tips, you can put on your makeup in the morning and not have to worry about those annoying touch ups! Start With a Clean Face Applying makeup to a fresh face is the best way to make it last. Make sure you remove your makeup at night and then wash your face in the morning before putting on your makeup. It’s also a great idea to use a good moisturizer, such as our Citrus Stem Cell Intense Moisture Lock Creme. It helps improve skin’s complexion, elasticity, and texture, and also smooths wrinkles. Use a Primer – On Your Face and Your Lids Makeup primer makes the perfect base because it helps minimize pores, erase imperfections, and makes your makeup look better and last longer. Make sure aside from using a basic primer that you use an eye primer as well. It’s a must if you are wearing eyeshadow or liner so that it looks as clean and crisp at night as it did when you first put it on! Choose Oil-Free, Long Lasting Products The products you choose make a huge difference. Products that aren’t oil-free may not last as long because the oils will eventually make them fade. Go ahead and spend that extra $2 for the foundation that says “long lasting.” It’s worth it! Don’t Forget Pressed Powder and Setting Spray  Once your look is complete, finish your look with a pressed finishing powder and setting spray! These products are designed to keep your makeup in place and also help remove any excess oil. Keep Your Hands Away From the Finished Product Try not to touch your face throughout the day! Not only can touching your face lead to breakouts, but the oils on your skin will remove your makeup.
