Things that make you mad in the makeup isle

[ Edited ]

I can think of several really stupid things I have ran into lately that irritate me to death. 

 

For starters I had to yell at my teenage male cousin one time for drawing with the lipsticks on the displays. Then he wondered why I yelled at him. I was like, really? I have to tell you at age 14 not to draw all over things like a preschooler. That's pathetic. I see it all the time at different stores with various items. It makes me mad. Not only have you probably ruined a perfectly good lipstick but you made a mess for one of the poor old ladies in Walmart to have to clean up. Instead of going in Walmart to "play" go outside or actually do an activity. Better yet read a book.

 

Another thing that bugs me is when people swatch things that aren't testers. I don't mind if you open it, but don't rub your hands in it. If it's a pump or something you can dispense and swatch I could care less. It's happened to me a few times that their was only one left of what I wanted, only to open it and notice someone had destroyed it. 

 

Finally people who leave nasty little notes in the makeup isle. I found one wrote on a posted note and stuck on one of the displays. It said something along the lines of "Inner beauty is more important". O.k. I get that, it's not like I don't think it's important. However for someone to go out of their way, write out a note, and post it in the makeup isle is obnoxious. I could care less that you don't like makeup but to take the time specifically to do that is annoying. My boyfriend instantly started making fun of it (with things I won't repeat). I was just like what good will this do? All it will do is make some pre-teen feel like they are doing something wrong for wearing a little bit of makeup to boost their confidence. It was very insulting from the tone of it. 

 

Feel free to post your own.

I'm the same way!  Even if someone had *just* opened a new item to use for a tester for me, I'd *still* put it on the back of my hand, because I'd hate for the person after me to have to deal with ickies.

I was at Sephora the other day just looking around and noticed a couple by me. The boyfriend kept grabbing lipsticks and putting them directly on the girl's lips and then jokingly says that he was so sorry and that she probably has Herpes now. GROSS.

Improvident means (according to Webster) not provident : not foreseeing and providing for the future.

 

Are you a victim of autocorrect, or did the noteleaver use a big word to sound important and not realize what he/she was saying?

It was auto correct or something. I fixed it. Thank you for telling me.

We once had a patient come into the dental office using all these big words that made no sense in context. The Dr pulled me out of the room because she almost couldn't hold in her laughter. Asked me: Is it just me, or is he trying to test my intelligence? But no, every time he would come in, he acted like he really thought he was a genius. You would look much smarter by just forming correct simple sentences!

I've had the opposite happen where doctors are surprised I know what the "big word" means. My Mother reads lots of medical stuff, and often makes me read certain articles as well (she's been doing this since I was probably 10). I'm sure I don't know everything but they act like you know nothing.

I worked for a doctor like that. I was his assistant and every time he would talk to someone other than me he would throw out these big medica lterms for simple ailments like flat feet he would always say Pes Planus which is the same thing just big terminology according to him, I got so tired of him doing that I asked why he did that and he said  "Just trying to help them out" when he knew he wasn't  it was just so he could put them down for not knowing what it meant. Geesh ! What a jerk!!

Re: Things that make you mad in the makeup isle

I've grown a strong dislike of doctors because they don't take women or children seriously. If you're a child nothing could possibly be wrong with you and if you're a woman you must be wanting attention. There are some good ones but I've discovered that most of them aren't general family doctors.

 

I also hate when they throw medicine at you. I had one doctor insist I take a medicine that I was severely allergic to. He insisted I listen to him when the specialist I go to told me to never, under any circumstances, take it again.  The worst part was he didn't even treat the problem I was there for!

So sad but true!

That's why I see a Nurse Practitioner. They are just as good as any doctor I've seen but they are so much more down to earth without that MD after their name.

They still have to answer to the MD though. So if he's a pain she can't do but so much.

Most Nurse Practioners don't have to answer to doctors after a  certain point their pretty much on their own, but Physician's Assistant's have to answer to doctors for the things they do. Also I just wanted to add the doc I work for now is nothing like the last one I worked for.

Or possibly I'm so out of it culturally that the word now means something different in slang?

I wouldn't be surprised if it were the latter.  :smileyvery-happy:

I hate when Sephora is out of something on display, and I ask a Cast Member if they have any. If there is some left in the drawers, they never replenish the display. They hand me one & walk away. 

 

I always see people putting eyeliner or mascara on from the testers... GROSS! & it's not just the teenagers, I've seen grown women doing it too. One of the main reasons I will NOT use my rouge studio pass. I've seen way too many gross eye infections due to eye makeup sharing, no thanks! Some makeup counters have 2 sets of testers, one that's out for the public to play with & one that's behind the counter that the MUA use for application. Makes total sense! 

I swatch a lot in store, my hands are always covered in glitter & marks. I will walk around the mall for hours with stripes of eye liner & mascara to see if they smudge, are in fact waterproof...

I put everything on my arm. I've used mascara on some of the peach fuzz on my arm to test it. I got strange looks from that one.

Re: Things that make you mad in the makeup isle

I think some of your posts are actually what has made me hesitate on using that pass too lol! I cringe when I see girls doing this, especially right up in the mirror using the pencil on their waterline. The last time I saw it, I almost wanted to tell the girl for her own sake that it wasn't sanitary wondering if she had even thought about or just didn't care.

Re: Things that make you mad in the makeup isle

I did tell a woman that once & she thought I was an idiot. She was using a felt tip liner on her water line. I kept walking & told a Cast Member & let them take over.

Re: Things that make you mad in the makeup isle

That is so disgusting! I can't imagine how many people before her did that too. It makes me cringe everytime I think about it.

Those are so bad! Reading alot of your posts here, and omg why can't people act decent? I mean what is the purpose of ruining someone else's property? Gesh.

 

I don't like when I am looking at an item and there's always that one girl who comes over so close I can smell her breath looming over me to see what I picked and then right by my face grabs the same thing. omg why? It happens so much, I have a constant shadow.

 

Not putting the item back where it belongs, so all the colors are not in their correct spot.

 

Smearing the products all over the display, they have tissues right there, hello, use one.

 

So I really try not to touch so many products because then I think of all the germs lol

Re: Things that make you mad in the makeup isle

The things that bother me is when people, at least in my sephora take the item out of the box and move it to another box, like i bought an eyeliner from UD it was supposed to be perversion, and i got home and it was some dark purple color, so i guess someone moved perversion to purple liner box and vise versa, causing me to go back to the store and return it, i was so angry.

 

i also don't like when people don't clean testers for lips before and after they use them! like gross! 

 

my ultimate though would have to be when i'm walking down the perfume isle and someone decides to DRENCH themselves in perfume, it smells up the isle and the whole store and its just gross, spray some on your wrist or neck and walk away, my god.
