    ummmmmmm - this would be Dolly mag - can they actually charge money for it ?

    Just to give you a heads up for the Napoleon fans out there - Google "Napoleon" and "rebranding" and you will discover that Napoleon products are actually La Femme and Your Name Cosmetics products which have been rebranded by Napoleon. Not that there is anything wrong with that as a few US cosmetic companies do it as well - hence "Your Name Cosmetics" (cheeky name, huh?) becomes "Napoleon Cosmetics", "Bobbi Brown Cosmetics", etc... with the company's labelling, logos, etc... In fact A Current Affair ran a program about this a couple of years ago when Napoleon's labelling started to fall off to reveal some La Femme and Your Name labels underneath.

    So... if you're planning on purchasing the mag subscription SOLELY for the lip gloss (as it is valued as MORE than the mag), you're better off purchasing the lip gloss directly from the US for no more than $3.00 and shipping it here. You'll save yourself close to $58 on one!! :)

    Can you tell I spend WAY too much time online shopping? But I always think it's better to have all the facts before spending a chunk of money, especially when it may be an impulse buy, which this would have been for me :whistling: had it been almost any other company's lipgloss rather than Napoleon.

    Shari91 you sound like the perfect person to have on Buckscoop
    I love it! If you ever have any other info like this then please share. This kind of information is what will make the forum a valuable resource for online shoppers that don't have your knowledge
  • admin2007/04/16 21:44:08
    shari91 - thats absolutely the sort of information that this place is built for. We appreciate it. Thanks.
  • nelly2007/04/16 21:49:37
    Good information to have. I guess the gifts with purchases are always a bit of a gamble.

    shari91 - thats absolutely the sort of information that this place is built for. We appreciate it. Thanks.

    I really debated whether or not I should that information on here or if it would be taken as "brand bashing" or something of the sort. In fact, I even squinted a little when opening up this thread again just in case I had been told off for it - I find squinting lessens the pain a little.

    But seriously, the reason I added my input regarding this specific deal was because I could see that it may be a huge incentive to purchasing a subscription to a magazine that one may or may not normally buy on the newstand - and in fact, it may have been the ONLY reason one would sign up for it! If it had been just a one-off gift with purchase one gets when buying a single copy of a magazine, then I probably would have kept quiet, but a subscription is quite an investment to make. I thought it would only be fair to provide any background that I had regarding that line of cosmetics so one can make an informed decision as I have lurked on this site for awhile to gather feedback from other users about specific deals and/or products and thought it was time I started to repay the favour! :)

    I've lived in a quite a number of countries over the past 10 years - some where English wasn't the first language - and I've had to rely on the Internet and online forums to allow me to not only purchase items not available to me in the country I was living in at the time, but to make sure I was getting the best value for my hard-earned pennies that I possibly could, so I will definitely share any firsthand experiences and/or product knowledge that I have when it's applicable. Thanks again everyone for your supportive feedback - you really have made me feel very welcome as a Newbie! :D

    ETA - should you wish to purchase a product from the Napoleon range but you want to save some serious money, just Google "La Femme" or "Your Name Cosmetics" (Napoleon uses both so you'll need to do a bit of research to determine which company is used for which product), and look for the Napoleon product you're interested in. You'll be able to match up the exact product and colour and source it either directly from the manufacturer or at the very least, a wholesaler, for a lot less! The packaging is mainly all black so it won't be a glaring standout in your cosmetic collection - the only difference is that it won't say "Napoleon" and you'll be able to buy a lot more since you're saving so much money! Should you need help finding something, just let me know and I'll help you if you get stuck.

    Wow, the info just keeps coming, welcome to the forums from me too shari91 :thumbsup:
  • nod2007/04/17 02:37:09
    This is great! All info welcomed
  • pow umop apisdn2007/04/17 09:13:41
    Useful information and welcome to BuckScoop Shari91 :)
  • admin2007/04/17 17:19:03
    Its interesting isnt it - the difference between 'perceived' value and actual value. It bugs me when you get retailers buying cheap or substandard products and then repackaging and selling it for a premium just because of the branding.

    Its unfortunate that the consumer has traditionally been put into such a powerless position, through lack of information. We've typically been indoctrinated to blindly accept that what we're told through advertising from supposedly respectable comapanies is true. So I look at the Dolly package and think - hmmm - thats good value when its not even remotely value. Just marketing.

    The reason we all welcome comments such as those you've given Shari91 is that the roots of this site are in providing people with a platform with which to peel away the layers of marketing and advertising blurb to get to fair value products. Thats the only way we can reverse the balance of control. So instead of merchants telling consumers whats 'great value' consumers get to tell merchants.

    Equally, if a merchant is being a scumbag then this is the place to make that known so that we can all vote by not buying anything from there.

    So yea - your comments are great feedback and we welcome more.

    Of course it's great to hear what people think about any deal :) There's no way I would have known any of that stuff Shari! I'll admit it though, I am a victim of the marketing process... and have been on many purchase occasions... :whistling:
