everything here is interactive: we set the defaults, you can change them. think a product has a different finish than the one shown? change it! want to track where you keep things ( location) or thoughts about how long lasting this lipgloss, lip plumper or lip stain is? write yourself a personal collection note, or tell the world in a review.
we’ve placed have / want / had icons everywhere you see a product, either on a picture, in a list (like on the brand or category pages), as well as at the top of individual product pages like this one for High Shimmer Lip Gloss - Naked Plum by Bobbi Brown. add products to your makeup collection wherever you see these icons. once there, you can sort by category, have/want/have, or even build your own custom kits for further organizing.

at blushgarden, we think differently about reading and writing beauty product reviews. we believe product reviews should provide you with detailed information, let the writer quickly and easily share their thoughts, and be a fun experience for all. to achieve this, we provide a ratings scale for distinct criteria, alongside traditional written comments. this format gives reviewers a way to provide an in-depth review of the same specific aspects of a product, allowing you zero in on the criteria that are most important to you.
without the need for long-form written text, everyone saves time. don’t let us discourage you from waxing poetic if you are so inclined, some people are gifted writers and should share if they want to. we just want to encourage and provide great reviews without that particular barrier to entry.
as an example, one rating criteria for lipgloss is stickiness. stickiness ranges from very sticky to not sticky. Very sticky might be a desired quality for you, while not sticky might be desired for someone else. there isn’t a right answer, only your opinion.
an added benefit to the scales is quickly seeing how a product might perform. you can identify that a product is rated highly for stickiness without reading a lot of text. easily compare and evaluate similar products based on identical criteria. apples to apples, if you will.
we would honestly love to hear your feedback, if you have an idea for a new rating criteria, let us know! post in the feedback forum, or send us an email to .
