Beauty Pet Peeves 2

The other thread was getting too long and difficult to load! 

 

So what are your beauty pet peeves? What grinds your gears? Share your stories!!!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I admit I opened it thinking there might be a discount because many companies do it! Damn it.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Agreed. Those emails just strengthen my resolve to not purchase, waiting until there is a sale somewhere. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

But, but....did you forget something? lol 

 

I have been getting these emails too lately and it is annoying. I hate when other companies do this too! Spammy...

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

LOL!!

@jesscheems It is spammy, and I am so irritated by it that I have considered unsubscribing from the emails... but I do not want to miss out on the Rouge stuff. Ugghhh. Smiley Sad

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I just got an email that says "Um, excuse me? Should this be yours?"

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I received the same one today, vegchililover. That was a new one! Smiley Wink

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

That is terrible. This kind of aggressive marketing makes me crotchety!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

My biggest Sephora email pet peeve is the "Because you need it" subject line.

If I need it, I'll buy it. Probably somewhere else. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@etscore1 I am getting that subject line too. My moolahs are currently looking for a new retail space. 😆

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@angel7594 10% ebates at Neimans is the front runner for me at the moment.

 

When I actually do the math on the difference between 4% and 10% is when I truly realize how cheap I am. lol.

@etscore1 It's all about change in a coin jar...doesn't mean much in the moment but four months down the line it means you get to buy something else with that savings Smiley Wink

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Nice! Thanks for that info. I am so cheap sometimes that even a 1 or 2% savings has me rubber neckin'! Smiley Very Happy

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I was so eager to wear through all of the super fun shades from the KVD ELL mini set, but my lips were just not having it. I needed to take a break from the formula after day three. Smiley Sad 

 

But I've been babying my lips in hopes that I can wear Echo (the navy blue shade) for a night out with friends this evening. Let's hope that my Jack Black/Bite lip treatments have fully resuscitated my poor chapped lips!

Ok same repeated line @AllysonJo But if you exfoliate your lips and apply a lip balm before wearing KVD or any other liquid lipstick, it might take a little longer to dry but your lips will remain very comfortable under the lipstick.

Unfortunately, my lips are just ultra-sensitive. I exfoliate and wear balm under liquid lipsticks and still experience drying. Thanks for the advice though, @fatimamummy! I think that I just need to limit how often I wear mattes. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I ordered the Mega Pro 3 palette with the early access.  Ulta's shipping is so bad, though, that it might not actually get to me until the 3rd.  A day after it launches in stores.  Oy.  At least, I console myself with not having to go to the store.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

That is the only thing that annoys me about Ulta!! They are the slowest to ship, and I am not going to pay the $9.95 to upgrade to 2 day shipping. I did that once and it still didn't leave the warehouse for 2 or 3 days :-( but I do love everything else about them :-)

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

[ Edited ]

I hate to whine about this, but customer service is driving me crazy right now:

 

1.  Part of my Sephora order was cancelled.  I don't really care that much, it's just a body wash, but I needed to find out which of my payment methods they're charging because I paid with a combination of two gift cards and a credit card.  Since half my order was cancelled they won't need to charge all three.  I sent an email to Sephora because it isn't urgent.  A minute later I get an automated response telling me how I can buy gift cards!!! I assume I got this because I used the phrase gift card in the body of the message a few times.  I would rather wait a couple days for a real response than get an automated one that has nothing to do with my order.  Again, I didn't really care part of my order was cancelled, but not I'm annoyed.

 

2.  I ordered an iPad case from Nordstrom (strange place to buy this item, but I had a gift card and they had the case I wanted).  Got it in the mail yesterday and it looks slighted used/worn.  I'm not picky, and it may have just been a little dirty rather than used, so I ignored that fact.  However, this is a keyboard case and I can't get the keyboard to work.  So I contact Belkin to trouble shoot.  It took five minutes to get someone in live chat.  When I finally did, he took five minutes between each question he asked me.  After half an hour all he had told me was the warranty info, then disappeared for another five minutes.  I finally shut the chat down and boxed the case up to send back to Nordstrom.

 

I feel like the universe is trying to send me a message that I should stop buying things.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I recommend posting to Customer Service part of BT. You will get a pretty quick reply. I've had excellent service using that part of BT (the mods are on top of that section of BT, although I'm unsure if they are so quick on weekends). @mw23

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Just realized that the Stila minis have half the amount of product as the KVD minis. In terms of price per shade they are close (Stila is still more expensive) but in terms of amount of product, Stila is more than double the expense per ounce as the KVD. Mostly this sucks because I wanted all 3 Stila sets and now I'm sad.

The Stila sets are not as good a deal as last year's, right? I thought I remembered last year a Stila set of 6 for $30, which was SUCH a great value... or have I got that wrong?
