What are some things makeup companies do that you don't like?

Ok now I don't want to try and start a bad thread but I thought it would be interesting to see what are some things people don't like about companies. Now I'm not talking about like animal testing or over photoshopped images stuff like that but more little things that just kind of get annoying after a while. 

 

For me it's a few things like example Mac (which I do love) always seem to come out with this little exclusive collections that are only online and the only way you find out about them is going on the site or from a email. The collections though end up being all permanent items that are already in their stores. Or another example was when Urban Decay came out with the Alice palette it was basically the same colors as another palette but with different names but they said it was new colors. 

 

So I guess when companies just flat out lie about a product annoys me. 

 

 

If this thread is not appropriate please let me know and I will delete it because I do not want to cause trouble or drama. ^_^

Just thought of another...

When companies claim their product will "reduce pore size" There's a huge difference in reducing the appearance of pores & reducing the actual size of a pore. Then people who don't know any better write awful reviews of the product because it didn't shrink their pores.

Companies that dont seem to appreciate my business burns me up.  Some companies act like they entitled to your business. No matter how much I like a companies products I will not shop with them if their service is bad.

I HAVE to add this...when companies change the formula of an already perfect item! I don't care if they change the packaging so long as the packaging is just as good or better than the last one, but when they ruin a formula by making it "better"

 

UGGHHH.

i hate it when they reformulate a great product. My current HG foundation is the estee lauder light but upon checking reviews online everyone was saying that the "old" formula was a 100x better than the current one. Bummer! 

Re: What are some things makeup companies do that you don't like?

this probably isn't the same as the topic itself, but I hate it when I buy a product (or anything for that matter) and it goes on sale a few days later, I feel like they could've told me if a big sale was coming if they knew. I hate when I go to a store and buy something and somewhere else it's cheaper, and not just because of a sale.  

 

I also really dislike something being out of stock forever, and it seems as if its coming back, but then it doesn't.  

 

I also don't like when the prices are different online than in store For the same company.

When they discontinue a really good item >_< OR when they jack up the prices all the time (NARS...I'm looking at you!)

 

Also, when companies take FOREVER to restock an item (hello KVD lock it tattoo? I went into Sephora yesterday because they had a sign by that foundation that said that it would be in stock at the end of MARCH, well still all out and the sales woman said that it would be in at the end of MAY now...)
