Jobs

Now Hiring
Welcome to IMBB! 🙂

We would love to have a contribution from you.

Here is some important stuff that you would like to know (Please read till the end of this page):

Before you start writing on our blog you will have to tell us if you are associated, in any manner, with any cosmetic company or not. You’d also need to provide us these two things:

  • A scanned copy/ image of your photo ID proof and your contact details.
  • A valid bank account number/ paypal account (for non-Indian residents) in your own name (family member’s or friend’s account won’t do).

Incentives: Payment, Work Experience Certificates and Sponsored Products

We pay Rs 200 per article/ review to Indian residents and US $5 (through paypal) per article/ review to non-Indian residents. For outfit posts we pay Rs 300 per article/ review to Indian residents and US $7 (through paypal) per article/ review to non-Indian residents. This does not include haul (shopping) posts as we do not pay for haul posts.

For Non-Indian residents, the payment would be strictly through Paypal. For Indian residents, the payment would be only through online bank transfer (Note that it is mandatory that you have your own bank account for authentication purposes; you cannot give someone else’s account number).

Payments to our writers would be made monthly, at the end of every month. Those writers who have written articles in a given month are to send the following details to us at the end of the month in order to receive their payments

  • Their article names along with links to each article
  • Total payment to be made
  • Paypal ID/ Bank Details

Account Holder’s Name:
Account Number:
Bank:
Branch:
IFSC Code:

Here’s an example of how to send your article details at the end of every month-

article details

Remember! we would not be making payments automatically from our side. In order to receive your payment, you have to send us the above details without fail. Also, if you fail to send us the payment details by the end of that month, we shall be making that payment at the end of the next month.

In order to check the number of posts written by you that month, just open any post written by you and click on your author name. It would open your author page.

We would be giving 6 months full-time work experience certificate from LA Edukreation Pvt. Ltd. to writers who complete 150 posts on IMBB, and a one year certificate for those complete 300 posts, and so on. This would not apply to writers writing less than 150 posts. Also, for those writers who cross 150-posts milestone but do not reach the next/ subsequent milestones, the work experience certificates would be provided on pro-rata basis. For example, if you write only 200 posts you’d get a work-experience certificate of 8 months. The designations would be writer/ senior writer/ editor.

Nail Paint Policy:

From now on, we are gonna stick to this standard for nail paint reviews:

High end brands – Chanel, NARS, Estee Lauder – one nail paint per review acceptable.

Medium range brands – Sally Hansen, China Glaze, OPI etc – at least three per post acceptable.

Budget brands – Lakme, Maybelline, Loreal, others – at least 5 per post acceptable.

Price less than or equal to 200- 5 nail polishes together.
Price greater than 200 but less than or equal to 500- 3 nail polishes together.
Price greater than 500 but less than or equal to 800- 3 nail polishes together.
Price greater than 800- but less than or equal to 1100- 2 nail polishes together.
Price greater than 1100- single nail polish.

IMBB Sponsored Products Scheme

  • This sponsored scheme applies to only product reviews submitted by writers. This includes all the product reviews published on IMBB from the 1st of September, 2016, and not earlier.
  • This would not apply to reviews of products which were/ are sponsored by IMBB itself.
  • This is separate from our regular payment for reviews. The payment for your reviews would be done on monthly basis as earlier.

Cashing Points For Sponsored Scheme
Now our writers can cash points after every 10 reviews, provided that the group of 10 reviews contain at least 5 different brands. In essence if you’re trying to cash 10 or more than 10 reviews (any number), you should have 50% or more different brands in them. The points for a review would be valid only for 30 days after which they would expire.
Point Scheme
We’re changing the point scheme to accommodate the prices of the products (as mentioned on the brand’s website and NOT on any e-commerce site) reviewed-
IMBB point scheme
… and so on.
Some General Points Regarding the Scheme

  • This sponsored scheme applies to only product reviews submitted by writers. This includes all the product reviews published on IMBB from the 1st of July, 2016 and not earlier.
  • This would not apply to reviews of products which were/ are sponsored by IMBB itself. If you’re getting a product sponsored by IMBB, we’d not be giving any points or payments for the same. IMBB shall only pay for the product.
  • This is separate from our regular payment for reviews as per our JOBS page. The payment for your reviews would be done on monthly basis as earlier.
  • 100 points = 100 Rs. (for writers residing in India) = USD 2 (for writers residing outside India). These points can only be cashed for buying products whose reviews would be submitted to IMBB and not otherwise. They cannot be converted into money and paid out to you.
  • The product(s) you wish to buy should not have been reviewed previously on makeupandbeauty.com.  You can choose any product(s) for yourself as long as they are permanent products and not limited edition. We would count 30 days backwards from the day you email us (at mirrorobsession [at] gmail [dot] com) about cashing your points and informing us about the product. We would count only those reviews that have been published and NOT the reviews that have been sent and lying in inbox. If we give the go ahead for the product you’ve chosen, you can go and purchase it for use. You have to submit the receipt of purchase. Once you submit the receipt, we would block that product review for you and not take its review from any other writer.
  • Once you encash your points for a review, you cannot cash them again.
  • We would make the payment for the receipt submitted once we publish your sponsored product review.
  • You can also buy products which are priced more than your cashed points but you will have to pay the difference.
  • As per our earlier sponsored scheme IMBB does not pay for shipping or taxes.

Article Copyright, Terms and Conditions

We would be holding the copyright of the article and the images that you sell to us so you are bound not to reproduce or re-sell the article in any form either online or offline. Please do not send us copied articles from the net. Also, we would terminate this contract if you are writing for a competitor blog. If you are already a makeup, beauty or fashion blogger we recommend that you write guest post for us.

The following would lead to immediate termination from our blog:

  • Submitting pictures taken from phone, or submitting us blurry, unclear pictures. We need sharp, clear pictures taken from camera. Send us a single photo taken from a phone and we would remove you from IMBB.
  • Submitting us content/ images copied from the net. If you are writing a general beauty article with images used from the internet, please provide us the source of the image.
  • Submitting us reviews with short or missing- experience with the product, pros and cons. Please do not fill pages with ingredients or claims. Attach images of ingredients and claims. Spend your time writing about your experience, pros and cons instead.
  • Writing on other beauty or fashion blog. Please read our blog guidelines.
  • Submitting us reviews with grammatical errors, sms language, or bad editing.
  • Behaving rudely or arrogantly with any member of the IMBB team.
  • Telling us that your payment has not been made when it has been made. Payment is a serious issue with us and we make payment to our writers on a regular basis. Whenever a writer accuses us that the payment has not been made we check our accounts. If we see that the payment has been made, then either the writer is lying or she hasn’t bothered to check her account. We don’t want to work with these people.

Article Format

Each article should have at least 600 words and at least 3 images. Please avoid writing your article in SMS language (u, ur, lemme, dis, dat, etc.). The product reviews should be written in pros/ cons format or they would NOT be accepted. If you are doing a photo tutorial or an image-based article, you can reduce the number of words.
