The Pink Panel

Recommended Posts

Wow. In the last two days I have had 3 new testing possibilities. Two that were on Facebook and one just now that said they would email anyone that had profiles that seemed to be good matches (people who said they have combo/oily skin and pore issues, I believe...so check your email if you put those in your initial sign up survey and are between 30 - 40 yrs old I think).

All three have 28 day trials and all have a $75 GC to a 'leading beauty website' for compensation.

Has anyone done a past trial with a GC to a 'leading beauty website' and can say what site it is? My other testing had an Amazon GC as the prize.

I have the combo/oily/pore issue and I think that's the one I did today (dq).  

 

When I did the eyelash conditioner study the comp was to the manufacturer's website.  I think it was referred to as 'a leading beauty website' too, but i'm not 100%.

 

It was Revitalash and I definitely can't complain. Our comp was supposed to be $150, but there was a delay so they bumped it up to $165.  Yowsa.

I definitely think their compensation is amazing! It'll be interesting to see what the leading beauty site is if one of us gets into one of these new studies.

A $165 comp. is pretty incredible! Especially if you liked the test stuff and wouldn't normally shell out that kind of money on those kinds of things!

My comps from L'Oreal have never been the huge ones some studies give out, so $75 to pick what I want from somewhere, would definitely be my best compensation for a product testing. REALLY hoping I get one of them (I finished all three surveys and was left with a 'we will contact you within 5days/1 week' page at the end *crossesfingers*)

I just got the email that I am in for the 'tinted foundation' study. The email does say that the GC will be for this brand's products and all it says about it is that it is a "prestige" brand...which could really mean just about anything, so no clue what brand it will be. Hopefully something good, since I will be able to grab $75 worth of their products when this is over :P

I guess they did not want me for the tinted foundation study because I got the survey back when they posted it but no follow-up e-mail.  Story of my life!

So, I guess I am NOT in the foundation study. They accidentally sent out acceptance emails to the "alternates" for the study (people who would get to participate if one of the chosen people opt out), so they have sent two apology emails and said that all of us that got the inaccurate acceptance would be at the top of the list for other upcoming studies that we qualify for and they gave us the links to two new studies (they are now up on FB, too, so go check facebook to try and qualify, I think both are 30-50 year olds and are for anti-aging products, I believe).

And...now another email from them LOL. They had said that anyone who got the false email and fit the criteria would get a spot in another testing. I just got an email saying I am in for a pore minimizing serum (I believe). Of those three surveys they posted last week that was the one I was most hoping to get into, so yay :)

The compensation for this one still just says that you get to keep the rest of the product being tested and get the $75 GC to a leading beauty retailer (the last one said $75 to get products from the brand being tested). It will probably be Amazon lol

They ask the question during surveys if you have participated in one in the last 6 months, not sure if that automatically gets you DQ'd or not. There is so little information about the panel, not sure if they have an FAQ on their facebook page or something.

I read the FAQ and it says they prefer you to only participate every 6 months, but they also want you to do it as much as possible. So it's not a hard and fast rule.

Thanks for finding that.

It probably depends on what they need for a particular survey. If you're part of a demographic that is hard to fill, they would probably be more likely to let you slide in. I have a feeling there are TONS of people with similar demographics as me, so that's probably why I get so few LOL

Guess I'm in to the serum/eye cream study.  Yay!  Those are two products I'm generally too cheap to buy but like to use.  I rely on sub boxes and freebies (from Amazon vendors who want reviews).

I think my serum is arriving today. I have a UPS shipment coming, that I am not expecting. It's coming from a town in VA and I checked and it's a town near where ThePinkPanel is located. I'm excited about this pore minimizing thingy. I think my trial isn't supposed to start until early Feb, so it seems weird to be getting it so early (last time I did one with them, it came the day before, all of myL'Oreal testing items have come really close to start date), they usually wait, so people aren't as tempted to try them out before the start date LOL

I don't have any unexpected USPS or UPS shipments coming and I got into a serum/eye cream study.  (I can't sign up for the FedEx tracking calendar for some reason.  It's giving me trouble because I don't have a FedEx shipping account #.)  I don't think it's supposed to start for over a week, though.

Today is the start of my study prep. I think I just have to stop using any pore serums and chemical peels today and can't use any from now until the end of the study.

I can't wait to start using the mystery pore serum, though. I haven't tried one before and my pores have seemed so much more noticeable the last year or so.

I have an anti-aging serum and eye cream to start using pretty soon.  I'm supposed to stop using serum and eye cream today.  I'm a little peeved because I'm SO CLOSE to finishing off a full-sized eye cream.  But, I want to follow their rules so I will do what they say.  Which means no eye cream or serum until Monday when the study begins.

 How are you liking it so far? Seeing any noticeable differences?

Maybe we should wait to discuss after the study is over.

Anybody got into the hair dryer study? I was not selected. I wonder what the brand is.

I'm did and it's my first study with them ever after trying for about a year!! I have not received it yet, but I will let you know the brand I get. It is supposed to be 1 of 3 I believe.

Thanks. For some reason I think it's Harry Josh.

This was my first survey too. Hopefully I will get selected one day :)

    • I suffered from depression as well. And yes I consulted an online therapy but she was a psychic. She resolved my problems and suggested me some aids. I took 3-4 sessions and now I feel fine. You can check her official website if you want.
    • Yup there are a number of Mac cosmetic kits which I guess you could look for. Foundations all together in it will make up to be best for you I guess.
    • Hey guys, im new here and love all things make up.  I seem to collect makeup from all over.  I love glitter, matte, pearl, anything.  The eye shadow palettes have been my weakness.  Every time a new UD or Morphe palette launches I have to run out and buy. With these palettes I have to have brushes to go with them.  Crease and shading brushes.  Then comes the blending brushes.  Lord, you can't have great eye makeup without a fluffy blending brush. Foundation is an entirely another beast in its own right.  I use my Sigma Flat Top Kabuki brush for my foundation.  It is dense and gets the foundation in all the right places. I actually have multiples of the same brushes so I know I have plenty to create my eye look.  While I was shopping for new brushes, I came across a link for a free makeup brush.  https://41f1caqgpjspd4h6n3u8grlh2e.hop.clickbank.net/?tid=MAKEUP119 It has got a few reviews and looks decent.  Hey, Free is free in my book.  The other major brush I use is the Sigma 4d brush that gets right into the corners around the eye for concealers etc.  I probably use like 6-10 brushes when I am doing a full face of makeup...  Even after all that sometimes I am not happy with the end result but its too late and time for me to step out and do what I was prepping for   lol   Well I am glad to be here and look forward to meeting all of you and getting into this makeup world even more...  
    • Congratulations! There some great makeup artists here. So nice to see you here. 
    • Hi Beauties! I dare to say, I found the most valuable and useful beauty tool for myself. I cannot help sharing it to you all. I said how important to draw our eyebrows better and lighting resources are really important to draw eyebrows. Actually lighting resources are important to your whole makeup.I recommended a LED light mirror under a post before if I did not remember wrong. But at that time, I did not use it myself that much and I just thought It's a good choice for someone who is looking for a good mirror. But now I have to highly recommend it. Since these days it's raining all the time AND I get up so early, there is no much natural lighting for me to makeup myself. Then I take out the LED lighting mirror. It surprised me indeed. Really wide-angle viewing. There is a cover on the mirror surface and the cover can be opened as a wider mirror. You can long press the button to change the brightness. That will meet all your makeup demands. When I draw my eyebrows, I can see every eyebrows clearly. I know how to adjust my drawing natural and better.  I did not take pictures of myself. But here you can check it yourself: https://www.amazon.com/Easehold-Tri-Fold-Rotation-Countertop-Cosmetic/dp/B01MG8X4QS/ref=sr_1_1?m=A24N8FLRVFVVCH&s=merchant-items&ie=UTF8&qid=1519698602&sr=1-1 Highly recommend it!!!
