Disclosure
I spend an obscene amount of money on cosmetics. My passion for cosmetics is my only hobby, pretty much my only social outlet and I dress in rags, so I feel that justifies it somewhat. That being said, I also work with several PR representatives and brands that send me products to review. No matter how the product was obtained, it does not influence my reviews of products.

Public Relations
Although a lot of the items reviewed on Perilously Pale are purchased with my hard earned money (or the imaginary money on my credit card) I do accept products for review from brands and public relations representatives. Receipt of a product does not constitute a contract for a published review of the product. I attempt to accept only products of interest that I would tend to purchase in hopes of lessening negative reviews and I do NOT guarantee a favorable review. Reviews are done based on honest assessments of the products and are not pre-approved by PR representatives or brands. Products that wish to impose such limitations will not be accepted for review.  Editorial timeline is currently 2-4 weeks from receipt of a product but varies depending on my schedule and on product type (I like to review skin care products longer for e.g.) All items received from brands and PR representatives are always disclosed as such.
Affiliate Links and Advertising
Perilously Pale at times makes use of affiliate links.  A commission is earned when a product is purchased using such a link which helps support the continued provision of content on the site.  The site is also supported by some paid advertisements.

No Warranty of Products
Perilously Pale makes no warranties as to the effectiveness or quality of any product. Reviews are based on personal experience and personal opinion. Individual user’s opinion may vary. Comments concerning reviews from users about their experiences are encouraged and welcome.
