THE PRIMP TEAM
CAROLINE VAN SICKLE
Thank you for visiting our site! I founded PRIMP because I love beauty products, but I didn't love the way they were marketed to me as a woman. I was frustrated by the inauthenticity of photoshopped ads next to messaging that insinuated a narrow standard of beauty.
The majority of beauty ads in magazines felt dishonest to me. I became inspired by beauty bloggers who were not afraid to show their bare faces for the sake of benefiting their audience with a full makeup tutorial.
The beauty blogger community set the pace for delivering truth in beauty and beauty products. Beauty bloggers inspired the PRIMP purpose. We created our platform to connect tutorials, reviews, and YouTube videos to the exact products used by the bloggers and by members of the PRIMP community. This makes it easy to discover beauty products from the recommendations of real women.
Previously, I worked in advertising and there is an element in advertising that is BS. So, at PRIMP we eliminate the BS factor. We don't allow traditional ads. If a brand wants to reach our beauty audience of nearly 20 million, they are welcome to do so only if they intend to surprise and delight us with something that will enhance the consumer decision journey.
