Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

This is must meant to be light-hearted.  I have had three people at work comment on my "no makeup" look.  Two didn't recognize me with my hair up, mask, face shield and no makeup.  Two asked me if I used to wear glasses.  I totally fessed up to the difference - No Makeup!  I don't wear a lot at work at all, but I do my eyeliner, mascara and fill in my eyebrows.  I can totally see how people would've recognize me.  It's all in good fun 🙂

 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I only wore eye makeup for the last couple of weeks @greeneyedgirl107 . I had a facial with extractions to get rid of some of my pimples and my skin had scabs where I had deeper pimples. I wore complete makeup for the first time today. I am noticing that my skin has become very oily this summer.

 I can’t believe that many people commented on your lack of makeup!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@Loretta55 I'm glad you were able to get some skincare done on your skin while wearing a mask.  That's true multi-tasking.  It gave me the opportunity to incorporate to try a product that I ordinarily would have dragged my feet on.  So, at least you and I found the silver lining!

 

I didn't mind the people commenting on my lack of makeup.  But it was funny that my color coded healthcare clothing and physique didn't tip them off on who I was (that, and the name tag - LOL!).  I must say that I had two nice comments from people on my team.  While I don't wear face makeup to work, one girl sd my skin "looked perfect" and another said that she couldn't tell the difference between me with and without makeup.  I also had a client tell me that she loved my eyebrows (back when I was still doing them before work) which was super observant since I was wearing goggles and she has cognitive deficits.  

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I still feel the need to wear lipstick even though nobody sees it @greeneyedgirl107 . That is too funny that even though you had your name badge on some of your coworkers did not recognize you.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I hate when foundation oxidizes or looks too pink.  Even foundations that are for warm yellow/olive undertones look pink on my skin.

RE: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I bought an extremely expensive line of skin care only available through exclusive skin boutiques and I regret making such a bad decision. I’m so sick of promising unbelievable results and not really getting them.

@CindyLoo63 

I hate that too!  I guess that's one reason I stick with Sephora;  I can read product reviews, they have great product descriptions, and it's easy to return products.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

When I get Olaplex in one eye, which doesn't hurt much at all but makes my eye completely bloodshot. No amount of water flushing or bottled eye wash helps, and my eye stays bright red for hours. It makes for a super fun elevator ride in these covid days, especially since I also have sinus issues right now—so I'm sniffling and clearing my throat a lot. Makes me feel obligated to tell other folks in the elevator that I don't have covid-19 or pinkeye, really, honest. I should be glad it makes people subconsciously keep their distance from me 🤣 but still. 

 

Other hair products have made my eye red (it's always just one eye, and almost always my left eye; I guess I tilt my head some weird way in the shower that makes shampoo/conditioner/rinse-out treatments run into that eye), but not as red as Olaplex does—and not for nearly as long. Good grief. I still love Olaplex, even if my eyeballs don't. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

ugh. @WinglessOne  😞  perhaps wearing goggles in the shower would help?

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@treestar86 Hmm, goggles might make washing my hair trickier. I think I just need to be more careful about how I tilt the left side of my head while rinsing product out of my hair. 🙂

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@WinglessOne 

I didn't know Olaplex does that 😮  I use it all the time so I guess I'll have to be careful!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@RAWRitsRED Eh, it might just be me because my eyes are rather sensitive. I can't wear 95+% of mascaras on the market because they make my eyes itch and burn. But yeah, whenever I get Olaplex in my eye, it turns completely red and stays like that for hours. 😄 At least it doesn't hurt in the process. 

RE: Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I’m waiting on mine to get here. Hopefully it will be fabulous!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I don't think this needs an explanation..sad thing is my fingernails aren't even that long😰

RE: Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I hate when this happens 😢

@sonnydee 😢

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

when i want a matte lip but it makes my lips all dry and gross even with chapstick underneath. Ew!

RE: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I am not really a fan of complaining but this is more of a disappointment for me I guess. Ted Baker and Karen Millen tend to be my brands of choice. They work well with my body type (I have a very small waist so it is difficult to buy clothing because of the difference in measurements between waist and hips), I like a lot of their styles, they are affordable. Rather often Ted uses fabrics with color patterns that remind me impressionist paintings colors and shades. Over a month ago I had ordered a couple of items directly from his US website (never done that before). Long story short, they provided me with the worst customer service I have ever experienced (and I have vast existence with bad CS 😂). After trying to get help for over a month, they can keep my $200, and I’m taking my loyalty elsewhere. Now I can’t even look at Ted’s pieces in my closet without feeling unpleasant about them. Oh well, 7 years of loyalty was not worth much to that brand

Re: RE: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

it's terrible when something like that turns you off a brand.  this is one of those things social media is good for

Re: RE: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@Zvezdochka  That's terrible service!  It's hard enough to find clothes when you're small, I have the same problem and always have to buy pants from kids/teen stores 😂
