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

My peeve is what I overhead at my SiJCP today.  One associate was telling (training?) another that she isn't to give out the Rouge discount or the free tote to anyone unless the customer specifically asks for each one.  I'm not sure if this is a new policy or just one for my store, but it really rubbed me the wrong way since I used to live near 3 Sephora stores, and the associates would always apply the discount or give out the freebies automatically once they scan your Rouge card.  So once I checked out, just like she was told to, she told me my total with no discount until I showed her the email about the sale and the bag.  It just seemed kind of stingy to me since I'm used to a great experience in store.

Well that makes sense now! On Friday when the sale began I took a friend in there with me so she could get 20% off also like it says on the brochure, but when we went to the register the SA didn't give us a bag and I didn't even think to ask her for one...she didn't seem to happy tbh! Well yesterday I went in again for something that was sold out online, and went to checkout and was given a bag without even asking!! So it makes sense why me and a friend weren't automatically given a bag because i didn't ask! Just seems silly considering if nobody asks, they won't give out bags leaving them with a plethora of bags after the sale!!

Of course I hold off on buying really the only set that caught my eye and its sold out already. Perfect way to end a crappy week.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I could cry right now. My becca rose quartz broke in my makeup bag. Of course it is sold out and of course I'm traveling so I can't check in stores Smiley Sad I'm sad.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Omg that's terrible!! I would be so sad too!! Are you going to return it? Sucks it's sold out everywhere. You were right- I did swatch it and it's gorgeous but OOS ...ugh!!! 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I don't know. I should have known better to not take it with me, but I love it and was using it everyday. It's softer formula than my moonstone so I know this was a risk. It lifted out of the pan and broke apart. I'm still using it, but I emailed Becca on the off chance that they had extras. I called my stores close by to see if they could hold one for me :/ It just sucks cause I've majorly fallen in love with it @jesscheems

I hope you find it soon!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

The 2016 bite mauvembers are already on eBay for $40+ and they aren't even sold out. I wish that Sephora would actually enforce their no reselling policy with eBay on limited edition exclusive items. I hate people that buy up releases to sell on eBay. I can see if you changed your mind. I've been looking at a few LE on eBay including the 2015 mauvember but I can't pull the trigger with the markup people asked and it is obvious they bought these to resell them when they have 5 in stock.

The beauty of  USA and this world in general is entrepreneurship!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Of course ebates goes back down to 4% right before the VIB Rouge sale tomorrow. Of course.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

maybe it will magically go back up at midnight I can only hope

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

My pet peeve lately is that I can't make my eyeliner look even lately! One side will point straight and the other will point up slightly. Its not something others would notice in person but it bugs me. I have hooded eyes and they are slightly different. ugh haha

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Random peeve...

 

Tried a Formula X polish weeks ago and it stained my nail this horrible yellow! It's a pain waiting for it to grow out!  My nails are naturally really white so I very much hate this yellow highlighter color Smiley Very Happy Smiley Very Happy Smiley Very Happy

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Oh no! That womps!

@veronika23 did you happen to use a base coat & was the colour you used a darker one?

 

I used to be a 24/7 polish wearer... and got stuck in the cycle of painting over the nails to cover the yellowness, and making it worse... 

 

I've been polish-free for over a year now (with a short period of gel polish in a few months ago for 2 weeks). Love I don't have to worry about chipping my polish, removing it when it looks bad, and my nails stopped peeling and grow much faster nowadays. I stopped painting my toes, too...it was just too much work to keep everything looking nice. Chipped toe nail polish looks terrible!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@k617 no base coat... It was a darker color and I was just swatching it.  I own a lot of dark colors by other brands and never had that problem.

 

Oh man I can't go without painted toes... get a pedi like monthly LOL  and yeah chipped toe nail polish looks terrible. Glad mine lasts like a month! Smiley Very Happy

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@veronika23 Yikes! A swatch did that to your nails?! Crazy!!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@k617 yup!  Wasn't too happy. I think I'll stick with brands I really love like Cirque Colors. I am so impressed with them. Same goes for ILNP.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

This happens to me too, with any nail polish I use on my toes. Now I always have to have my nails painted or they look yellow Smiley Sad

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Long flights. Hate them. For so many reasons… But, let’s keep ‘em beauty related… They mess with me inside out. My skin goes crazy. My everything goes crazy. Then I go crazy. Gah!
