I'm interrupting the Review Blitz once again to bring you this very important message...
I realize that many of you don't have blogs, but I'm posting this because, effective immediately, you're going to see a small change in the blog posts here on Nouveau Cheap, and I wanted to let you know why.
This month, the Federal Trade Commission updated its guidelines about disclosures. You can read the full, updated set of guidelines here. Fellow blogger Carleen of Beauty and Fashion Tech wrote an incredibly helpful, detailed piece about these new guidelines here. If you're a blogger (of any kind) I strongly suggest reading Carleen's blog post.
What you can expect to see on Nouveau Cheap from here on out: Effective immediately, all of my product reviews will begin and end with a disclosure if I have received a product for free or if I had paid for it with my own funds. I have ALWAYS told you, within the first paragraph of my product reviews, whether something was given to me for free or if I paid for it, but now I'm going to make it the very first sentence of each product review, followed with my usual disclosure at the end of the review.
Also, if I happen to rave about a product on social media (Twitter or Facebook) I will start my rave with "given to me for free" or "paid for with my own funds" before I say something like, "I love this new lipgloss!"
That's about it--I just wanted to give you a heads-up about this in case you thought the sudden abundance of disclosures was coming out of nowhere. Again, if you blog, I urge you to read the guidelines for yourself at the link above.
