Flauntme IQ & Ratings
What is Flauntme IQ?
Flauntme IQ is a composite review score to help you quickly identify the overall quality of a product. It consists of reviews from Flauntme Users and reviews from the retail sites in our database.
Why is Flauntme IQ better than average product rating?
The Flauntme IQ formula takes into account the quality of the reviews giving different weights to different reviews. Factors taken into consideration include the helpfulness of the reviews, the reputation of the reviewer, verified purchases and many others. Reviews deemed low in quality could be removed from IQ calculations altogether.
I rated a product incorrectly by accident, how can I change it?
At the moment there is no way to manually do this. However, you can open a support ticket and we can change your rating for you. In the support ticket, please include the product link as well as the new rating.
Product Finder
What is Product Finder?
Product Finder is our advanced product search tool allowing you to search for products by name, brand, category, IQ score, price, ingredient, shade, concern, retailer and more. This is available to all of our registered users.
What does sort by relevance mean and why is it the default sort option?
We use a relevance forumla to help provide a best guess as to what you may be looking for. The data used to determine relevance includes your viewing history on Flauntme and those of other users.
How do I search by color?
There are two ways to search by color using Product Finder. If you know the name of the shade you are trying to find, then type in the name of the shade in the Color field on the Advance tab. If instead you are looking for close or similiar color shades, then use the True Color tab to select a color either from the swatch provided or enter an RGB value.
What is the strictness field on the true color tab?
The strictness field lets us know how closely to match the swatches you chose. You can enter a number between 0 and 100 with 100 being extremely strict and 0 being not too strict. You will most likely not get any matches with too strict a search.
Beauty Assistant
What is Beauty Assistant?
Beauty Assistant is another Flauntme feature intended to help you quickly make buying decisions. It works like having your own personal assistant that remembers your beauty preferences. With those preferences, Beauty Assistant will give personalized yes/no recommendations with a detailed breakdown. Please note that Beauty Assistant is only available to Glam users.
How does Beauty Assistant work?
First you would fill out the Beauty Assistant questionnaire. The more completely you fill out the questions, the better the recommendations from Beauty Assistant. Then visit the product page of a product you are interested in and you will see a Beauty Assistant information box. Clicking on the link within the box will take you the detailed breakdown page.
Why doesn't Beauty Assistant show up for every product?
Most likely this is due to insufficent data about the product or your Beauty Assistant profile was incomplete. We usually update product information every 24 hours so please check the product page again later.
