Help Me Join the #SephoraSquad

I don’t work with brands and retailers very often.  The primary reason is that I want to choose the things I endorse, not have them chosen for me.  Recently, I was invited to apply for Sephora’s new affiliate program, #SephoraSquad.

A partnership with Sephora would give me the opportunity to work with a fabulous retailer and share products from a wide variety of lines and brands.  I wouldn’t feel pressured to promote products that I don’t love because Sephora has so many amazing offerings, many of which I already endorse.

To apply, I had to answer a fairly long questionnaire about my blog, my readers, an my style.  They’ve also asked for reader testimonials discussing why you read this site and why you trust my reviews.  You can find my review site, here.

50 of you were already kind enough to share testimonials on my behalf.  I hope a few more of you will join them because this could be a great opportunity for me to have some sponsored content without sacrificing authenticity and perspective.

(Plus, who wouldn’t want to be in whatever club Sephora was creating?  Amirite?)

    I left a review, although I have serious concerns that this is going to make me buy even more from Sephora!

    Done! I hope they do the right thing and pick you. I can’t watch or read one more “influencer”talk about Olay Whips.

    As a reader for 6 years, just submitted my recommendation. I hope Sephora is bright enough to want smart, professional women working with them on partnerships, because that is why I wrote they should consider you. Good luck.

    Done and happy to do it. Hope you are selected. I’ve been reading since nearly the beginning, almost never comment, but have always found the broad spectrum of advice and discussion to be illuminating. You’ve influenced many of my purchase choices for the better. Thanks for being an important, interesting, and trustworthy voice.

    Submitted. Good luck with the process. You’re the best source of fashion insight and beauty reviews for professional women that I’ve found and a much needed voice in those industries. And your headings are so witty!

    I submitted mine. You are honest and genuine and deserve this. I buy things so much more often when they are endorsed by you than by other “influencers”. I know I am getting an honest response from you. xoxo
