Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@heartsmyface love your statement and your name! I feel like I knew vaguely before that your name was Leah, but now I really do haha

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

ahahahahah!  @refresh at Sephora.


This is obviously city living.  It is too much of a hassle to take public transport back home and 'refresh' the proper way. 


This is when I love the suburbs!!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I wonder if she goes to the same Sephora every day, or rotate? You'd think that after months (or even weeks) of noticing the SAME person coming in only to use the testers and not purchasing anything, the store would do something.


Her claim that tester mooching is a feminist act is. She makes real feminism look bad.


Edit: I rarely "freshen" up when I'm at a Sephora store. I have blotting papers, what in the world could I freshen up on that wouldn't look bad layered over my existing makeup?

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

A makeup refresher to me is maybe some tatcha mist and a reapplication of lipstick. Both items can be found in my purse and are something I'll pull out in the car or in the women's rest room mirror.  


Maybe people have different definitions of freshening up? Not sure. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

“I think you would be hard pressed to find a girl who doesn’t refresh in there.”


wut?????? I don't know anyone who "refreshes" in there, who ARE these people?? This article is grossing me out. Smiley Frustrated


"a reaction to the high expectations of being a woman and the expenses that go along with it."



Yup, because I'm sure society is secretly scanning the makeup on your face and making sure you're using $200 of products every day. If you use drugstore products, you don't meet the expectations of being a woman. Hello????? I feel like I'm in some weird world I don't understand.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I forgot to say... It's rare I make it to the store but it's super hot in there!!! How the heck can you stand there and do a full face?? Everything would be melted off by the time I was done! Smiley Very Happy

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Not to mention the poor lighting! I would use the wrong shade of foundation every time!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Good point!  


Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Okay makes sense. Sometimes I see people doing their makeup slowly and it doesn't seem like they're just testing products either...Wow so they are just doing their makeup there! That's horrible =/ 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Stealing and spreading germs in your face as a feminist act? I've seen everything now...

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@DaintyDiva my thoughts exactly!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Wow, that's just disgusting! Those people that have done it every day for years must have super-immune systems by now hahah

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Sanitation issues aside, who has the time to go there every morning? I have to go to work before Sephora even opens, anyway. Seems like a wretched idea all around.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

???? This is fascinating. I want to observe someone doing a full face by going through multiple aisles at Sephora. Proudly posting about it shows a lack of judgement that is hard to understand lol.


EDIT: I went to read the blog post, and it's so ridiculous I find it had to believe she isn't being deliberately inflammatory. Also- "Let me be clear — I’m not advocating actually stealing from Sephora (but if that’s your style, do you)." What?

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

D: I can't read the full story because im not subscribed but from what you are saying....this is really jaw dropping for me. I mean in principle sure MAYBE it's a good "hack"/"cheat", but those testers are not clean! I think this kind of crosses the line like along the same lines as taking sephora product from testers and putting it in your own sample bottle. I can't imagine how much shade she gets from SA

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@mella900 yeah it did that to me too a few times. I just copied and pasted the article to my original post if you wanna read it Smiley Happy

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Pet peeve.... Beggars.  

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Wow I can't help but notice that you are the the same person who posted the "Beggars everywhere" meme. If people asking for F&F codes really bothers you that much, kindly keep scrolling past that thread. No need to be so rude. I'm sorry but you are very rude and I need to get it off my chest already. It's posts like yours that make me not want to come on BT anymore. @mrsbaine

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I agree with @nikki25gee as well. I don't understand why someone would get bthrt about others requesting codes? If you don't like it, just ignore and scroll down! 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I can see why it can be frustrating to some, because sometimes it clogs up the thread and the purpose for the thread itself. this isn't to start an argument but everyone on BT are allowed to have their own opinions, for those who have been here a long time it is frustrating to see people who have never contributed continue to ask from the community without giving.


I also think to prevent drama from happening in the threads if there are personal issues they should be addressed through PM. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2


@nikki25gee I agree totally with you that @mrsbaine could've scrolled past that thread if it bothered her; most of us do scroll past threads or postings that we don't care for.


Instead, she chose to show everybody who she really is. Who knows - she may be the reincarnation of Marie-Antoinette, out of touch with reality and with an elitist attitude.


I already had a 20% code (thank you again @KatieBT), but I felt sorry for the ones who didn't, especially since she chose to have a holier-than-thou attitude. Not only that, she felt that she had to post TWICE (in that other thread, and this one) about how she felt about the ones requesting codes.


I couldn't stand idly by and not say anything this time because she is being VERY rude, snobby, snotty, condescending and what-have-you.


She even confirmed to you that she's rude and VERY immature. WoW.....o.O  Who does that?????


Congratulations @mrsbaine you've shown everyone your true colors. Very interesting that you have ZERO hearts for your original posting here. I know that you don't care what I think, blah blah blah but I had to put in my two cents and thank you for showing your true colors, which you did not once, but twice.


As for you, @nikki25gee

you go girl.jpg


It even looks like @KatieBT has your back!!! Smiley Very Happy Smiley Very Happy


ETA: Welcome to Drama 101. Before settling in and getting too comfortable, please go to the very end of this particular post, as all comments/attacks on me have unfortunately pushed what had transpired between Nikki and the other individual to the very end. So sad that no one had uttered a peep then. You can reach your own conclusion
