I got a chuckle out of this post. As you said, we're not talking national security here. We're talking about the www that has transformed beauty into a truly global phenomina. I read blogs from all over the world and those bloggers have readers from all over the world. We've become an international group of beauty afficianados attuned to what is happening with our favorite brands on a global level. If a brand releases more foundation choices in one country than in another, we know it. If a brand issues exclusives in one country but not in another, we know it. If an anticipated shadow appears in one country but fails to appear in another, we know it. If prices are outlandishly higher in one country than in another, we know it. And so it goes. Yes, indeed. It does make you wonder what they don't get about the "w" :-)

I agree. I kind of wonder about a Beauty PR exec. who doesn't factor in the reality of the internets, especially with how beauty blogging has exploded (for sport, hobby, career opportunities, venting, fanning...whatever). If you are a beauty fanatic, you live for any major news and you will spread it!

I sympathise with your ethical approach - they need to wake up to the web, that's ridiculous!

Don't they realise we travel and have relatives in other countries etc. and will buy beauty products in duty free/other countries anyway???

Funny how they don't embargo our money or buy off a foreign website.

LOL - but totally understand your frustration they look like idiots.

Honestly, the situation is ridiculous. I see images I like on a US blog and I'm not allowed to blog about them myself? Nonsense.

Shame, but it won't change - it's because PR pander to print over online media. A magazine won't cover a product that's been shown to death online for a month.
