Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@patronbleu I knew your user sounded familiar 😊 💕

 

I haven't had issues with moonstone but then I did not add to my foundation or moistirizer so not sure if the fotmula reacted to that or the dyes used. I hope the sample works out for you, it is quite pretty both ways used..now I am trying to find something similar in a powder version. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I'm not very creative, just went with the same username for quite a lot of social media!

 

Hmm according to Temptali her dupes for Halo are:

 

  • Makeup Geek Moon Phase (P, $20.00) is warmer, more shimmery (95% similar).
  • Anastasia Blue Ice (LE) is more shimmery (95% similar).
  • NYX Twilight Tint (P, $7.99) is more shimmery (95% similar).
  • Looxie Beauty Wicked (P, $7.50) is darker, more shimmery (95% similar).
  • L'oreal Ice (P, $12.99) is lighter (90% similar).
  • Anastisia Snow (LE) is warmer (90% similar).

As for me, my purple powder alternative for Halo would be MAC Softfrost or Urban Decay AfterGlow Aura! Didn't fall in love with the Becca Amethyst @Anewxa

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

That's disappointing @prettyinpa Smiley Sad I'm sorry you had this reaction, I'd definitely take it back. There are so many other new highlighters for you to trade it out for lol. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@Mcakes-  Thanks for the good wishes, the eyelids are still red but at least they stopped burning and itching!  I'm definitely sending this back, you are so right that there are so many highlighters and I only have one face!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I also hate it when store associates don't educate themselves on what they sell. It's your job to learn about what you're working in, regardless of what you personally use.

 

Wow another horror story from Shoppers Drug Mart.. I was in there and this customer asked an older store associate about the Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation, if it's as good as people say.The lady knew absolutely NOTHING but offered to swatch her shade. The customer was about to leave, unsure, but I came in and raved about it (it's my favourite high coverage foundation). I swayed her and she bought it. The store lady (and the customer later, outside) thanked me and I said you're welcome but... really lady? I understand that you can't know about every product (I work at Best Buy and I know for a fact that that's not possible) but at least learn about each brand you sell and know what the cult favourites are. The same lady preached to me about Clarins when I walked in, so she clearly knew a lot about that particular brand. If you're working in makeup and beauty, you should know how to do your job properly.

Wow another story from Shoppers lol. You should apply for a part time job there @IZ95! For community service/charitable purposes Smiley Tongue I'm sure that customer appreciated your input. 

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!!)

@starrysilver what is this natural glow you speak of?  Smiley Very Happy

@heartsmyface@angel7594

 

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...
