Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Oh no, what makes you think it's fake? 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I don't know if you can really see from the image, but there are a few differences in the labels (Exhibit A being the legit blush). Plus, Tribulation's compact feels less rubbery than any of my other NARS blushes. Now I'm paranoid that all of my other beauty dot com purchases are fakes.

Upon further investigation, the mini Goulue that we were given for Rouging has the same face diagram in the lower-left corner. Maybe I'm being over-cautious? 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@AllysonJo Temptalia's photo of Tribulation looks the same as yours. I think they just slightly redid the packaging. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

That's a relief. Thanks for looking that up!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I'm considering going to the mall this weekend, to go to Sephora.  The thing is, I HATE the Sephora here.  The SiJCP is great, but the one in the mall has overbearing SAs who won't leave you alone.  I get that they're trained to do that, but I really just want to shop in peace.  The people at SiJCP are much more laid back, and yet helpful when you need them.  Unfortunately, that store doesn't have what I'm looking for.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Put on your headphones.  Heck, just really listen to music and shop. ;')

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I've been breaking out like crazy so I tried using spot fix and I'm afraid I overdid it Smiley Sad It wasn't as noticeable mid-week but my skin is so angry that I dried it out so much and it's super itchy >.< I hate how it's so hard to find a middle ground with skin care (and so easy to go over the line!)

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I hate this, too.  I always try to find my 'sweet spot'  with Retin-A and all is great and then wham! one day I get raw or too dry.   I gave up.

 

 

Try Marula oil.

My Beauty dot com order shows out for delivery, but not to the correct city. I rechecked my actual order and I did enter my information correctly.

Edit, I did receive my package via Laser Ship which I never heard of.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I am lying in bed breastfeeding an almost sleeping baby and my lips are dry.  I am staring at my stash of 300+ lip products and can't do a thing right now.  Why am I not a Jedi?  I could really use the force right now. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I've been there @heartsmyface  now I keep a stash of lip products and lotions in my nightstand and my kitchen drawer downstairs, my purse, my car, etc....u get the point.  I'm too lazy to run to the one place I keep them stored on my vanity, so better to stash them everywhere u might possibly need them

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Oh hearts, if my psychic forces were in working order, I would teleport one over to you post haste. And forgive me for not congratulating you sooner! I just saw a picture of baby Zim yesterday! I'm so out of the loop. What a cutie pie!! Hope he's fast asleep. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Thanks pixie!  I'm all set in case of future dryness attacks now.  What self respecting beauty loving girl doesn't have a stash of lip balms by the bed?  - besides me last night? 😅

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I constantly have to keep re sighing in to BT. What's up with that??? 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

That happens to me constantly on my phone.  Not so much on my other devices. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Yes it's always been happening on my i phone but now more then ever Grrrrrr.

I don't think it ever kicks me out on my desktop but I'm rarely on BT when I'm on my desktop. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I'm an almost exclusive iPad user these days.  It's way too convenient.  The desktop only comes out if I wanna watch something that requires Flash.  

I can see the security benefits of periodically signing you out on your phone just in case you lose it, but I'm thinking security is a measure people should have the option to take their own risks with.  

Then again, I assume most people have passwords in place so people can't access the contents of their phones in the first place.

@heartsmyface There's an iPad app called Puffin, that lets you use flash. Super convenient! Hope that helps! If you have a lip balm that's not too melty, you can stash it in your nursing bra; I used to do that.
