Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I don't understand the balls on the ends of wands. Wasn't there some brow product where the wand was also ball shaped? Is the ball at the end supposed to help get into corners/edges, because I feel like the shape helps 0/10.

 

Spoiler
also kinda sorta reminds me of lady parts. SORRY if you can't unsee

I also dont understand the different names for black. I noticed the waterproof vs non waterproof versions have different names for "black"

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I agree @mella900 Like that Givenchy one. Those spiked balls do nothing for my lashes. A traditional tapered wand works best for me. Some things are just fine as is. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Hahaha seriously what is up with that wand?? I'd probably stab myself in the eye with the ball at the tip!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Bahahahaha have to agree with all that!!!! I don't get all these weird wands either!!!!  But I would love a black as my soul black mascara 😄 😄 😄

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

"head like a hole, black as your soul" Now I have that song in my head and I hate that song LMAO! one more peeve 😄

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Pretty peeved with Ulta right now! Do they ever respond to cs emails ( "contact us" option  ) you send?! Not very impressed with them at all. First, they sent me an obviously swatched and messed up eye shadow palette. And, now they are not responding to my emails. And, wow! Mail returns are not even free?! I think I'm just gonna stay away...

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Ugh. Sorry.  I don't get why companies just don't reply if they offer the option. I can't tell you how much times I wrote to Givenchy and never got a reply.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Thanks. So very rude, yes!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I've had a good experience contacting them via Facebook. Good luck, that stinks.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Thanks! Good to know. I guess I'll finally have to make a FB account just for these kinda things. I heard so many times companies do nothing until you call them out publicly. Sad. Smh.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

They have a message button (if you're not familiar with FB, it's basically PMing), which is what I used. So you don't need to go public if you don't want to.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I know it's much more annoying to call sometimes but I would definitely suggest giving their 800 number a call. Just last week I had a shampoo liter come and it had leaked all over the box and they sent a replacement at no charge (and didn't even have me ship back the one that had come damaged).

 

Edit: Mention that you had reached out over email in a timely fashion and that no one responded.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Thanks for your suggestion, @keepra . Wow, your experience with them sounds fantastic!

 

I didn't have time to call last two weeks ( I know that is never quick and "painless"! I simply had no time for that. That's why everybody has "contact us via email" option, I'd say. ), so I was thinking reaching out via email should work just as fine as it works perfectly everywhere else. Guess not...

 

By now I am pretty much done with this situation. It's very disappointing. I have no energy or will ( nor do I care! ) to deal with this kind of ridiculousness any further. I am going to go out of my way to return the palette in store. I'm gonna do that, and that's pretty much it. My short experience with Ulta is ending after that. Can't say I'm sorry. Plenty of other retailers out there make it priority to reach out back to you asap ( many the very same day! )... So, no. Not wasting another second on Ulta.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I understand it can be frustrating 😞 Sorry you had to deal with that! While I do think they're getting better, they still have a ways to go...

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

How disappointing! 😞 I had no idea mail returns were not free.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Ha, so would anyone protest if I hire their dang escorts and dabbled in some black magic?  I think their advertising is working. :'D 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

lol, you know that's something Archer would do 😛

 

Right now I'm channeling Pam (minus being naked and sitting on the toilet, ha!)

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Ha, I think we gotta bring this back down to pg13 😛

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

That leaves me with very few Archer options 😛
