Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I bought the Sephora eyebrow wax for $5 and got an ebates notice that I'll be getting 15 cents! Cue Biggie Smalls "Mo Money, Mo Problems"! 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Ebates is normally why I place online orders, but 2.5% is a joke. Those few dollars are literally nothing, and not worth waiting a couple days when I could walk 20 minutes to the mall Smiley Frustrated

 

Maybe Sephora told Ebates to lower the cash back so they can rack in more store sales? Or Ebates didn't want to deal with a huge crash and lowered the cash back? I know it normally drops around sales, but something was up this time around. They've got to be in cahoots with each other...

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Yeah like when was it ever at 2.5%???? The lowest it ever goes is 4%. Seriously.

All of these 1 off threads that are usually duplicates. I'm mad at the duplicates - it's clogging up the thread. Plus the spam ones as well. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@niki172 I agree. I'm also annoyed at all the advertisements on BT lately. Smiley Frustrated

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Ugh all of the above for me too!!!! I swear... It's because of that darn article. UGH

Is it still a peeve if I laughed so hard that I cried???

 

Please check out the video for clinique color pop and tell me if you agree - 

 

The start of the video "start flawless" and then proceed to PRETEND to put product on a flawless model and then PRETEND to blend it out.

 

Clinique, we aint dumb. Smiley Tongue

This is as bad, if not worse, than when mascara commercials pretend to put on mascara on the models eye and all these perfect black hairs just magically grow.  Or they are clearly wearing falsies. I swear they think we are all stupid.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

What is the point of reaching the top level of a reward program where one of the perks is that you get stuff earlier than others (urban decay rockstar) and another company releases before they do (sephora on app exclusive)

Talking about the basquiat collection

Rant over. 

P.s. I couldn't wait Smiley Happy I bought what I wanted on the app yesterday

An acquaintance from high school who I haven't seen in a decade and who I haven't talked to in at least six years messaged me out of the blue to ask if I wanted to sell Lipsense.

 

Another high school acquaintance did the same thing with Rodan + Fields a few weeks ago.

 

Some people clearly have no idea that I'm in a very serious relationship with Sephora. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

good for you @txcatx

 

but aren't you ever kinda.. curious?

 

You know, when Sephora is not calling you back, or forgets your birthday AGAIN.. or doesn't even say hello when you walk in the door? 

 

I had an emotional-only relationship once.. it didn't end up getting physical but it easily could have. I'll call him "Olta" to protect privacy. 

 

Olta and I first came into contact through a mutual BT pal.. she has been telling me how great of a vendor Olta was and how I should meet his website and see if I clicked. I don't think she knew how serious I was about Sephora, so I didn't say anything.. but later.. in private during my lunchbreak at work.. I looked Olta up. 

 

Holy Cow. He is stocked. Product for pages, and this Olta knows how to treat a gal.. nothing but benefits, paying for part of your order for you (he cheekily called it his little "discount") and he swore to keep track of every little tiny thing we would do together and then add it up for me at the end of the year as some sort of 'relationship points' idea - it was kinda cute.

 

But.. you know.. I'm older. I've been with Sephora.. and changing relationships at this age is harder then in my 20's. I know what I like, and I know Sephora can give it to me.. 

 

I still sometimes still look up Olta on the web to see how he is doing.

I...I...also had an emotional affair with someone I'll only refer to as...Nerdstrom. He was so attentive and even texted and set aside stuff he thought I'd like. *heart eyes emoji*

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Blah yes, why people! And no I don't want to go to your sell me stuff party.

I hate beauty bags (especially Ulta ones)! I can never get a nice one. NEVER. Smiley Sad

I made an Ulta order last week for this bag:

See that very pretty blue polish? It's nice huh. Did I get that pretty blue polish? NOPE. Did I get a different pretty nail polish? No, again. What did I get? A useless ugly sheer white one. Are you kidding me?! Even in the description, it said "Full size Essie Nail Polish in Naughty Nautical." I know that samples can vary, but COME ON! Can't I just get one good bag? I thought that since this isn't a mystery bag, I would have much better luck. I was definitely wrong. 

 

I really need to stop ordering these. It never works out.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I got the white polish too.  Useless!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

No joke, I've used white nail polish to "clean up" the appearance of grout or stucco lining on tile or against cabinet seals before.

 

Or they can make a good base for neons/bright polish colors!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

ulta burns me ALL THE TIME

I don't know what it will take for me to learn either lol. but I will say one single redeeming thing for ulta: a few months ago, they were sending these bags with 5/8 promised items, no replacements, no coupon, just "there's no guarantee". at least in the last bag I got (the little $30 gwp), I noticed a couple items were missing but I got a $5/15 printed-on-paper. not a big deal but at least they kind of tried.
