About Us -- The Beauty Test Dummies Blog Concept

This month we are partnering with a ton of other great beauty bloggers over at Beauty Blogger Headquarters in a project designed to help you understand more about us.

So here's a little history of Beauty Test Dummies.


Beauty Test Dummies is a fun digression for two beauty-product obsessed women (and various guest bloggers). The blog started in October 2011 as a little experiment -- would anyone read it? -- and the response has been great. Plus, we are having a lot of fun!

The blog is designed to be informational and fun. Some of the reviews are a little snarky (Someday by Justin Bieber) while others are glowing (Tan Towel or Make Up Forever Rouge Artist Lipstick). We post daily, Monday-Friday, with a few bonus weekend posts. And we sponsor giveaways and promotions with companies from time to time.

Writing was something each of us had been doing for most of our lives -- through career choices and other random projects -- so blogging seemed to be a natural fit.

The idea for the blog just hit one day. I was looking through a drawer full of samples from Sephora and Ulta and every other company I had ordered from and wondered if they had a real purpose. Then it hit me -- what if we tested them and let people know which products really were worth it.

More and more we are finding gems in those piles. There is nothing like trying a product that you would have never bought and loving it!!

Keep up with us on Facebook, via RSS or just visit the blog daily. We are having so much fun with it and hope you do too!
