FTC = Fail?

So on December 1st of last year, a new law was instated by the Federal Trade Commission aimed mostly at online bloggers and members of the youtube community. This new law required that whenever someone mentioned or used a particular product in their blog/video, they included information about whether or not they received the product for free, if they were compensated for mentioning it, and if the opinions included were their own. Failure to include these things could result in an $11,000 fine.

Finally, we all thought, people who promote the shit out of crappy products because they're getting paid for it will have to come clean and stop lying to their subscribers. Except for whatever reason, some "gurus" still refuse to follow these FTC rules, such as;
itsjudytime
makeupbyrenren
fafinettex3
glittereyes82
And some of the bigger gurus find ways to halfass the rules so technically they're still following them, but they're still being dishonest. So who has the balls to report them? No one, really, because if a particular guru suddenly included FTC info in between the time they were reported and investigated, the fine for falsely accusing someone is even greater then the fine for not following the rules. So I guess that means shitty gurus can continue to shamelessly promote things like tongue scrapers and adult diapers just to make a quick buck. Oh well, I guess it was a nice try, FTC?

So what do you guys think? Do you even care whether or not gurus get things for free? I don't, I just think its sad that many gurus will promote things that they would never use had they never been sent them for free, just to make money off of their thousands of subscribers. Some gurus (like itsjudytime) will block you if you question why they haven't included FTC info. The FTC rules were created to protect consumers, but due to the fact that a large part of the beauty guru's audience is made up of naive 13 year olds, nothing has really changed.

I agree, but it's only been, what, 3 and a half months... it's a baby still, kind of... I guess.

What I'm trying to say is maybe we need to give it more time to see if anything will come out of it. Any kind of court action seems to take a long time to begin with.

piggiecharm said...

First of all, does nobody know the true meaning of the word Guru? NONE of the "Makeup artists" on youtube are Gurus. I fucking hate that they think their experts when they don't know jack. Second of all, I cannot wait for all these sellouts realize that Youtube won't be their cashcow forever. Lulz


Guru: a teacher and especially intellectual guide in matters of fundamental concern b : one who is an acknowledged leader or chief proponent c : a person with knowledge or expertise

How the fuck are Balir and Ellen experts/teachers? They can't even blend!! ugh it's so fucking annoying.

end rant(for now) lulz thehehe

oh so did anyone know that Kalel is going to speak at Vidcon? or am I late with the news? She's the only "guru" on the roster.

@piggiecharm Yeah, I said once a while ago that thanks to youtube, the word "guru" has been totally bastardized and pretty much means nothing anymore. I love that people like Kailyn and such call themselves and their internet friends of the week "gurus".

@8:24 LOL, well that's fafi's problem... man, she is so obviously fake in the videos where she is dishing out rave reviews only because an item she got was free. I saw that ed hardy travel set she got and I was just thinking ".....wtf r u on to like that shit".

@8:26 unless you are on the level that you are a real, well traveled makeup artist, and you could easily converse with another real, well-traveled makeup artist to exchange ideas and the like, I would kind of refrain from calling yourself a guru.

But that's just me; personally I try to avoid possibly coming off as having an unwarranted sense of self importance irl.

Like her subs have that kind of cash "You might want to go get some anyways because with prom coming up they'll probably sell out!"

FTC or no FTC. I fucking hate that makeup gurus now a days push shitty ass products on their subscribers. Every video is a damn infomercial. When I first started watching makeup vids on youtube 3 years ago it was so different. People were doing it more for the love of makeup than the love of money. For example I loved makeupbyrenren, lisp and all. She had great tutorials and at first seemed genuine but now all she fucking does is pimp out the free shit she gets. I finally got sick of it and unsubscribed to her. Julieg is another one that is now a total sell out, I unsubscribed to her as well.

"She doesn't bark. I just want to hear her bark once."

Well...Kai...honey. How do you expect her to bark when she's been in a permanent contact high from hanging around you all the time?

I'm guessing your residual druggy scents could knock over a cart horse (never mind a puppy's hypersensitive nose).

Just sayin.

its really sad how ellen and balir's subscribers believe them still.

I wish I knew what it was like to be that stupid.

camille please post about elle calling herself out as a fake

Anonymous said...

Yeah we need a post about Lisa totally outing herself for the fake that she is. Not to mention her stupid joke wasn't even funny and her acting was TERRIBLE.

Anonymous said...

i like calling them ellen and balir
it makes fun of their dumbass fake names :)

Anonymous said...

blairizabeth probably does the same shit, rehearsing fake shit to sound dumb when they think it sounds cute.

i bet you they fake all their bloopers too

When did "Elle" call herself a fake? Also why are they called the QVC sisters?

Elle accidentally shows herself rehearsing her lines for her vids..and they are called the QVC sisters cause every vid of theirs is like a fricking ad.

someone should make a video and put in clips over and over of lisa and lizzy from their old vids
"ive never been paid!"
"i saved up for months" and then right after put the picture of lizzy and her chanel bag, and that one pic of lisa and lizzy holding their tiffanys bags

then screen cap the side bar "i was compensated for this video" and put that right after a clip of "ive never been paid"

and way back when lisa first showed the ghd hair straightner she made it sound like she saved and bought it
now in new vids at the side she wrote "the ghd was sent to me back in"....whatever month it was i cant remember
put a clip of that

that would be the best lisa lizzy youtube vid yet and maybe people would start to put 2 and 2 together lol

Anonymous said...

Oh I've always thought that Lisa and Lizzy's "bloopers" were totally fake to make them sound ditzy and funny. Laaaaaame.

Not defending gurus because I pretty much hate them, but the FTC thing isn't a law. It's more a best practice guideline, and is more aimed at advertisers who dont disclose their paid endorsements. And yeah nobody is going to be fined $11,000 unless it's some REALLY extreme circumstance.

kalel is too orange. she would look better pale tbh.

sccastaneda chick annoys me to no end
check out the first 10 seconds of the video where she pretends she acts all confused, if she should call the shitty SPONSORED sluttymiamistyles video a haul or a review

and im loving the snarky comment one user left

sccastaneda used to be one of my favorites, but lately she has been annoying me so much. :/ And I really don't need to see ANOTHER hotmiamistyle video from her. Is she serious? All in it for the free shit. ugh!

A lot of people like to jump to the conclusion that haters are jealous of these gurus, but if you've been watching their videos since the beginning, then you know how much they've changed. That's my problem. I started watching because I thought they were genuine, but as soon as they started getting paid it has become such crap.

Pluxe said...

Oh I just stumbled across this site and they sent ME a pair of shoes to show YOU all the quality. It actually pisses me off to see all these gullible people entering her contests. FFS there needs to be laws against this type of thing... oh wait...

Anonymous said...

lmao @ balir "i would never ask for free products" oh really? she and her sister are such greedy lying famewhores

Pluxe said...

I do watch a few of Blair's videos (mostly to read the comments) honestly each time I do I mute it then slowly bring the volume up ever so slightly. Her voice is so shrill it makes my sensor shock utility go off... something about the HDD retracting. Even my laptop can't stand her.

Anonymous said...

Blair tweeted:
woke up to emails from companies saying there is someone emailing them- and ASKING for free products to review... SAYING THEIR ME! NO, NO...
about 2 hours ago via web

..NO! i would never ask for free products. if you are a company and are not emailing me through juicystar07promo@gmail.com it's NOT me!
about 2 hours ago via web

If you remember, that screencap of her charging $250 for product mentions was from the same email.
http://i25.tinypic.com/330g4ts.jpg

Liar! From her YT page:
"Contact Information:

For all business related inquires, please send me an email (no messages here on YouTube, I am unlikely to see it) to juicystar07promo@gmail.com. "

Anonymous said...

I think she's saying that she doesn't personally contact the companies for free products. She probably has someone that does it for her. ;) Companies most likely contact her first anyway. I guess she thinks that since the company wants to use her to promote their products, she can easily charge them for it. I'd be like bitch please, and move on to the next "guru".

Someone needs to push her off her high horse.

What a shock. Kalel shut down her site that she never updated. Lazyass.

Btw, that twitter pic of her is FUGLY.

Someone said earlier to link one of the "Lisa fumbles" videos to the "Congratulations" one. That way whatever stupid "fans" see the LA one may also see Lisa in the video responses, click it, and see her fakeness XD
