About the Blog
My name is Charlotte but on social media I go by Multibendystraw (hence this blog being named Multibendybeauty) and I live in Bristol, UK. I am currently studying a Postgraduate Diploma in Events Management, and have an undergraduate degree in English. However, I’m into all things beauty and have been for a while so write reviews in my spare time (if there’s even such a thing as ‘spare time’ as a master’s student)!
I am just a regular person, I’ve had no beauty training, I’ve never worked in the industry, I just love beauty! I find it difficult to find genuine, and detailed, reviews online sometimes so I want to share my opinions on beauty items to hopefully help you decide whether you think a product is worth spending your money on. Anyone who knows me in real life knows that I am always honest – if a product is awful then I will 100% tell you.
Anything that I write is my personal opinion and all products have been purchased by me unless otherwise stated in the review. Where a product has been sent to me I will explicitly state this in the post (either through saying that it has been sent for free, or that it has been gifted). Even if products are sent to me, this will not change my opinion on them.
Affiliate links will be disclosed within each blog post that contains them. Affiliate links mean that I earn a small commission per click through the link, and if you should purchase after clicking on the link. The cookie period for links can be anywhere up to 30 days, meaning if you click on a link and make a purchase anywhere within those 30 days, through the link, it will still count towards my commission. This does not cost you anything extra and affiliate links do not change my thoughts on a product.
If I have any posts that are sponsored this will be stated within the post. Posts that state that they are ‘collaborations’ or ‘partnered’ mean that I have received payment from a brand to write the post (unless the post is in collaboration with another blogger, in which case it will be stated that the post is not sponsored).
Finally, just because a product hasn’t worked for me doesn’t mean that it won’t work for you. Similarly, if a product does work for me that doesn’t necessarily mean it will work well for you. We all have different skin types, textures, and needs. It’s also rare that I will 100% like, or 100% dislike, a product. I hope to give you enough information to make an informed decision about whether or not you would like to purchase the product.
I really hope you enjoy my content, and if you do then be sure to follow my blog!
