About Us/Disclosure

Beauty Info Zone is the creation of two women, Marcia and Lisa.  They have been blogging about cosmetics since the late ’90’s, and are so crazy about cosmetics they each became makeup artists.  Both Lisa and Marcia are certified teachers with a combined 50 years+ in education, and they value correct, detailed information about products as well as the importance of an easy to read, fun writing style. 

Beauty Info Zone was launched in March of 2010.  Lisa and Marcia created their blog as a resource to showcase real-life experiences with products along with detailed information for those researching products.  They provide specific information in a positive, readable format and include pictures of products actually being used in every review. 

Beauty Info Zone has a large email subscriber base, along with a fabulous Facebook and Twitter presence.  Major cosmetics companies send product samples to Beauty Info Zone for review because they know Lisa and Marcia will post honest, correct information that consumers enjoy reading.

Marcia began as one of the very first members of Emakemeup.com in 1998 (no longer available).  She is a makeup artist who has worked for MAC, Paula Dorf, as well as at Ulta.  Her stash is unbelievable – so huge she refuses to take inventory. She has also been chosen as a skincare contributor on Temptalia’s blog.

 

LisaLisa became obsessed with cosmetics when her mom gave her a Jafra party for her 15th birthday.  Since then, Lisa has worked as a freelance makeup artist, and has a stash that almost rivals Marcia’s.  Her day job is working as a guidance counselor at a high school, but her spare time revolves around doing cosmetics research and enjoying all things beauty related.

 

Marcia and Lisa met in 2005 with a glorious multi-product swap on MakeUpAlley. They discovered they lived near one another, and a huge cosmetic-obsession-enabling relationship was born!

Marcia and Lisa can be reached at marciaandlisa@gmail.com and beautyinfozone@gmail.com.

Disclosure:

  1. Blog posts are the opinions of Marcia and Lisa, and our own personal experiences with the products. Keep in mind that everyone’s skin is different, everyone’s hair is different, etc., so while we do offer two opinions, what works for us may not work for you.
  2. We note in any review if the product has been given to us by the company for consideration for review.   Many products are bought by us personally, although some may be gifts from friends and others may be samples. All opinions are 100% our own.
  3. Products sent to us for consideration for review are not guaranteed a positive review, and are not guaranteed a review. 
  4. We are not compensated for any promotions or discount codes unless specified with the post.  We have an affiliate partnership with Camera Ready Cosmetics, Somme, Skinsonic, and Invicible Skin; proceeds go to funding our blog.
  5. If you are a company who would like us to try products, sponsor a contest, or have special offers for readers of the BIZ, please email us at marciaandlisa@gmail.com or at beautyinfozone@gmail.com
  6. We are the voice of the average consumer.  What makes us unique is we personally use every single product ourselves, and we never review anything we haven’t tried for a considerable length of time.  We provide real, honest opinions of all sort of products, not just pictures and descriptions of the latest releases.
  7. Here’s an article we did on March 16, 2013 about the new standards of the FTC.
