Ok, so I’m totally ripping this off from Lily of Chloe.Ash. She’s even done a post featuring these limited edition blushes, though the one that introduced me to the concept was her “Not a review” of the Météorites blush. When I first saw this one, 007, online I was content knowing that there was no way I was getting my hands on this anyways, so no need to bother. But then a real enabler offered to, well, enable me (BIIIIG THANK YOU!), and the more I looked at the pictures on her blog, the more fascinated I got with the pattern, the coral shades and the gold sparkles…. Before I even knew what I was doing I jumped on, and I haven’t looked back. I’m too busy staring at the glimmers of gold encased in the luxuriously hefty silver compact and snarl at anyone who comes too close to mine! My own! My preciousssss.
I just couldn’t help myself. Have a look!
Some of these pictures were taken using my Iphone with an Olloclip, some were taken in direct sunlight, others on a cloudy day. What you might have noticed is that I’ve marked my images more easily visible than I’ve previously done, and I see that it’s necessary for me to do so, even though I’m nowhere near what I aspire to when it comes to my photography.
After my post on the Guerlain fall collection I found that another, more established blogger used my photography in a post on the same collection. I am not initially opposed to the idea at all, but what I find very annoying is that she hasn’t referenced my blog in what I consider to be an appropriate manner. She has inserted the images in her post, as well as images from other sources and her way of referencing is at the bottom of the page “Originator: 1 2 3”. Clicking the numbers takes you to the original posts, so I probably can’t take this to a “higher power”. Nevertheless, I do feel like she’s reaping the fruits from my work without really acknowledging that it’s mine. I am probably in the wrong here, but I feel like she should have referenced the sources by name as well as linking to them. As the site was in Russian it took me a few days merely finding the reference, so however much it pains me to distort pretty blushes and eyeshadows, there’s going to be a highly visible signature in all my photos. Right now I wish there was some sort of standard style of referencing for blogging.
