Can you still remember this blogpost: "Earn money with your blogposts!" which I posted last year? Yeah that blogpost was about LUUUX.com. A website that has grown within two years! It's a website where you earn points every time you add a post, comment or rate a content. The better the community says your content is, the more Luuux money you earn. The more Luuux money you have, the more things you can buy. That's right, you can exchange the points to get awesome products like a Michael kors watch, an ipod, ipad, or even a LV bag. I was active on that website (I spend 3 hours per day) when I first discovered it, mainly to check if this website wasn't a scam and I secretly wanted to have the Sigma brush set that I could get if I had enough points. Note: this is NOT an advertorial. In this blogpost I'm going to share my thoughts and experiences about this website. I FINALLY had the chance to make an order there, but the product wasn't the one I wished for =[ *sigh ..
First order (trial 1)
The large sigma brush set was around 8,580 Luuux points or something. (They increased the points throughout the year.) I finally had enough points after approximately 5 months. I was so excited because I thought that I finally had the chance to get it! Ugh, but after a week or so, some moderators removed like 3000 points from my account because I had put some blogposts in a wrong category according to them. Also, they told me that I wasn't allowed to refer the posts to my blog all the time. I was like what the o__O" *sigh, it took so long to get those points and 3000 were removed all within one day just because of those reasons?! I was so unhappy about it because it took a lot of effort to post things there. So after this incident, I stopped going on LUUUX...
A month ago I started to check on my LUUUX account again (because I was bored) and I actually wanted to close it down. However, I curiously checked what I was able to get with the points which I had left. I noticed that they removed the sigma brush set btw and replaced it with different items. Anyways, the only thing that I could get and what I was interested in was the Luuux "limited edition" brush set. (Limited edition my ass, it was already available a year ago lol.) I decided to order it.
First order (trial 2)
This time, the process went easily and no points were reduced from my account. I received the item a few days ago and it took around a week until it arrived. Which means, that this website isn't a scam, but it takes a lot of effort to get those points and yeah, is it really worth the effort? It's better to read a book or make your homework instead of putting your energy into this website =.=" *sigh. And as you can see, i'm quite negative about LUUUX compared to my previous blogpost about it because of my experiences. Anyways, I'm going to close my account there soon since I only wanted to check if the website isn't a scam or not.
I will write a seperate review about the Luuux brush set, so stay tuned.
