Many of you will know that I have a lot of love for the Fyrinnae guys - their stuff convinced me that colourful make up was fun again and I frequently lust over beautiful things on their site. I also follow them on twitter and blogger and therefore know that they work obscenely hard. Their fan base has massively increased over the past couple of months and therefore their average number of orders per week has zoomed up.
That's why it came as no surprise when I heard that they were going to do a little price increase - I mean, most companies have had to eek up the prices a little recently (we are at the end of a recession if you rememember) and many indie companies have really been hit hard by the financial climate over the last year or two.
As it is, they're only planning on changing the prices a teeny tiny bit (I'd understand all the fuss if they were hiking up samples to $3, but they're not) and actually, they're planning on increasing sample sizes and on stopping the limit on how many samples you can order.
And yet, I've been seeing and hearing so much whining and bitching and just general horribleness about this. Stop it. Seriously, ladies (and guys), just stop it. These guys work hard, they sacrifice so much to provide excellent products and excellent service. Bullying them because they're trying to make their business financially viable is shocking.
Apologies if this post offends you. I just hate to see a good company dragged down by people with nothing better to do than moan and whine.
