Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

How long before this highlighter marketing explosion dies out?  I can't seem to stop buying new highlighters to try and am in shiney shimmery overload.  

I'm seriously considering the possibility that I may turn into a unicorn at any moment.  Right now I'm reorganizing my makeup drawers in the hopes I can muster up space for six new highlighters.  😭😭😭

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Of course you can make the space Smiley Very Happy Just gotta build the makeup drawers higher. 

 

there is ALWAYS room for new makeup!!!!

Thanks KB!  I've missed you!  

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@heartsmyface Same here! I have about half of a muji drawer dedicated to my "everyday" highlighters and my higher end Dior, Chanel highlighters stored away in their respective packaging in other drawers. Its too much even for me!

I think I'd need to morph into the mythical creature Hydra to use up all the highlighters I have in one lifetime. :/

Summer is coming and soon we can paint all exposed skin in shimmery goodness! 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

i know i'm already starting to feel the overload.  i have SO many highlighters.  it is ridiculous, but recently i have barely been wearing it.  or i have been opting for a more natural glow, very very subtle.  for me at least this marketing explosion is having the opposite effect on me to the point where not only do I not want to buy anymore, i don't want to use the ones i own!  It's so weird!

 

(except the coverfx halo drops.  those are in a league of their own in my opinion.  new favorite!!)

OMG!  I totally had to reorganize my blush/highlighter drawer twice in the last week and now I'm out of space again due to my latest binge!!!!

 

I agree - We are turning into Unicorns and Mermaids. On the Stila thread @Randell has diagnosed this as OCMD (Obsessive Compulsive Mermaid Disorder).  Perhaps we add a U for unicorns and start our own 12 step program - It's getting out of hand...

 

I was able to resist the Plisse Lumiere de Chanel earlier this week, though, so I think that is a good sign!

Hmmmm, are there criteria to be diagnosed with this affliction?  It sounds like I may be suffering from OCMD.  

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@Tamara76 I need to reorganize my drawers too, lol! I have resisted the Chanel so far, but the swatches are making it tempting. Smiley Very Happy

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Alas  there are still people in the world who don't know what highlighter is *plays sad PSA music*

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I too, cannot stop buying new highlighters. Shiny Unicorns unite!! Smiley Very Happy

my real complaint should be that I ordered the new Nicole G Anastasia highlighter palette and the Sephora website said it didn't go through so I ordered it direct only to find the Sephora order is actually on its way.  I paid postage for nothing.  Booooo. 

It only counts as one highlighter right?  

Too faced got me good.  I had to have all three faceted hearts.  

Marc Jacobs got me with their liquid highlight. 

I know there were six....I. Just. can't. Remember...

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@gingerleigh Unfortunately there is no way of creating and saving hyperlinks in BT, although that would be a nice feature.

I shared a link to a cached brands list yesterday in the thread "Getting logged out of BT/Sephora constantly"

 

Here it is for those of you that may have missed it. Its possible these links may be disabled at some point so it's good to have multiple options.

In addition, @veronika23 was kind enough to find and share the cached Canadian brands list:

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

So glad this is helping you all! I still can't click on the brands link above, it's like it is a placeholder for a future way to get to the brands list, so I'm really glad I stumbled across this url.

 

@mella900 I found it by accident, I was searching google to see if I could find out where tarte's March 15 releases will show up, and the search results took me to a broken link for Tarte's product page on Sephora, which luckily has an intact redirect to the brands list!

 

I haven't been getting the errors on product links so far today but I see other people are so it's probably a fluke and I sure hope they fix the site soon.
