Disclosures

I possibly have an unhealthy obsession with cosmetics and skincare and spend a lot of my extra cash on them; that being said, I also work with cosmetics companies and their PR firms and sometimes receive products for consideration.  My opinions are uninfluenced and remain honest no matter how the products were obtained.
My reviews are based on my experiences with products.  Keep in mind that everyone is different and individual user’s opinions or experiences may vary.  Because something works for me does not guarantee it to work for you.  That being stated, I am not liable for your own adventures (or misadventures) into trying products in which I have given good reviews.  I do encourage you to seek out professional information before trying new products and I ALWAYS recommend checking out the ingredients in products before applying them to your skin.  Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service found on this blog should be verified with the manufacturer or provider.

Public Relations
Most of the products that are shown or reviewed on My Newest Addiction I purchased myself, although I do accept products for editorial consideration from cosmetics companies and their public relations representatives.  I always state my honest opinion of these products.  These posts will have this image.
Affiliate Links and Advertising
My Newest Addiction does make use of affiliate links as well as Google generated Adsense links.  Some of the links in my posts will be affiliate links and some will not.    Those that do will be marked with this image.
