OMG @AllysonJo you're hilarious

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

There's definitely a bit all over the place with their marketing, though I feel like their prime target tends to be late teens to early tweenties. Not too old to stop wanting cutesy things, but old enough to also want risque thing (and old enough to no longer think they're too adult for cute things XD).

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Why, what is Hangover X?

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

The packaging has an x after the R. It's just a play on words: Rx means prescription.

Hangover RX is an awesome primer, regardless of the name Smiley Wink.

Ebates NOT sending cash out checks. Poor communication, well if you can even call "no communication" communication. 

Irritated beyond belief. 

 

Long story short:

-Saw my check was issued on the 10th. A week later it still hadn't arrived. Contacted CS and wanted to confirm which address the check was sent to. (I had moved and changed my address preferences prior to August).

-CS rep told me their process is to wait 21 days. He did NOT even tell me where my check was sent. 

-21 days later, STILL no check. Contacted CS

-Took 4 days to respond. They asked where to send my check -_- 

-Now they're telling me I have to wait until Oct 9 to see it. 

 

WOW.

Ugh. I hope you get your check sooner than that. I stopped using Ebates years ago because of their shenanigans. Now I use other cash back sites that usually offer a higher percentage back.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Wow as if!  I seem to always have good CS... but that's ebates Canada.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Wow, that stinks. Ebates hasnt even been working for at all. Two large orders through them and not one registered to the site. Been months since they've worked for me

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

My hair tye snapping 😞 Recently, my hair decided to thicken up a lot, so i misjudge my hair tyes. It gets frustrating.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I'm fairly convinced that the NARS blush that I received from beauty dot com is a fake. Smiley Sad Super bummed, hopefully they can reimburse me the 20$. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Would they not get into trouble for selling fake items? Legal issues? I know, here in Canada, counterfeits items cannot be sold as "the sale and production of counterfeit goods is a crime"

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I'm worried that the lime crime velvatine I got from Urban Outfitters is fake too...i know UO is listed as one of their authorized vendors, but the packing on mine has aspects of fakes as well as authentic? so im very confused.

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.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

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!
