Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@wheeeee, That is definitely a pet peeve of mine. People, not everyone cares about your business.  DO NOT have your phone on speaker. You are Not a RealHousewife of wherever. And please don't speak so loud that people in the next aisle can hear you. NO ONE CARES.  Ratchet.....LMAO.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

ahahahah!  @Housewives of wherever. 

 

Maybe more stores will start installing the 'no cell phone' sign at the register. 

 

Even a shy employee can just point to the sign for people to get off their phone.  

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

What a classy statement, Yeah, us believers in gender equality are just sooooo obnoxious.

 

EYEROLL.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

OH.MY.GOODNESS

I have so many reactions, I don't even know what to say. I'll pick the one that thing that really made me angry. "I think you would be hard pressed to find a girl who doesn't refresh in there." 

I would be willing to bet money that the majority of people on BT don't do this. I have never used Sephora as a way to refresh and reapply makeup and never would. If I ever try on a product, it's because I am genuinely interested, not to free load. Ugh some people have no shame. This just makes me really upset because it's why stores hate teenagers sometimes(not that these are all teenagers, they are grown women for godsakes) Being a teenager myself, it's just annoying when I hear people doing such immature things.

 

 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

This has been a topic of many rage texts to my bestie when I've been in Sephora.  In my local Sephora, good luck finding a mirror near Urban Decay, KVD, Nars, or Benefit.  It seems like every time I'm in the store, there is always a gaggle of teenagers/early 20-somethings jostling to get a mirror because they are doing their entire freaking face of makeup.  I have watched them do their face and walk out with no purchases (yes, I spend way to much time in Sephora).  It drives me bonkers. Getting a makeover is a different thing.  I don't think anyone is going in and getting a makeover every day.   

 

The sanitary issue.  GROSS.  I usually do swatches on the back of my hand to get an idea of the product.  But you had better believe that if a SA comes at me with an unsanitized product I stop them.  I don't need pink eye or whatever else could be lurking in the testers.

 

To refer to this as a feminist act is complete crap.  A real feminist act would be to do whatever you want to do.  If you want to wear makeup do it for you. As a feminist I'm kind of offended she is co-opting the term for this type of behavior. Call it what it is, selfish and gross.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

This just reminds me that my husband subscribed to WSJ for years and rarely opened the darn thing. Now, I click through and cannot read the story without subscribing or logging in. If they had articles like this back when he subscribed, I would have read them more often.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I find it gross, and she'll probably end up with dermatitis, an eye infection or something worse, but whatever. I take bigger issue with her justification. I embrace the F word but I'm old school. And I was raised by a feminist that wore makeup and high heels. So I don't see her point. This is just another example of a woman using feminism as justification for her selfish behavior. Me, me, me.  And I dare say, if she was truly feminist, she wouldn't give a flying fig about other people's expectations. But what do I know, I'm old. 

 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@pixiedust2 I was raised by a feminist also. My mother during the 60s went braless hahaha BUT she got up at 4 in the morning to have time to put on a full face of makeup, bright lipstick including false eyelashes and always a very stylish outfit and matching heels and then left for work at 5:30 am for a 2 hour commute on the I5 to down town LA to work. She supported our family of 5 always making the effort to look like a million bucks Smiley Happy

edited: I guess the burning the bras and bralessness must have been on the weekend LOL

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@PaletteAddict99 4 am AND a two hour commute?? Your mom is a superstar. My mom loved makeup and she passed that on to me. I still remember her and my aunt touching up each other's eyelashes every weekend LOL. It was this hardcore black glue, those lashes stayed put for weeks. I seriously don't even know if they still make that stuff! 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@pixiedust2 Yes I remember the black glue haha. They got it at the beauty supply store. 

And us kids used to freak out finding those lashes here and there thinking they were spiders LOL

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@PaletteAddict99 OMG someone remembers the black glue LOL!!! Yep, same here about those little spider lashes. Used to scare me to death haha!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@pixiedust2, Your mom rocked and you my dear are not old!!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Funny thing @NancieNano  I never wore makeup until a few years ago. I was a surfer chick in the 70s and we didn't wear make up. We just had a great tan and rosey sunburned cheeks. Now I appreciate the effort my mom put in every day.

Thanks for the Tag!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I was excited to try one of my favorite limited edition shadows over a white base... And I got partway there, until I noticed the shadow is missing! Where has it hid in my unruly collection?! Why do I always leave things randomly around the house?! I'm sitting here sulking with NYX milk pencil all over my lids and a bright yellow crease. Argh. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I go a while in between Sephora shops, during which time I salivate over dozens of products I swear I'll buy next time I have spare money/gift cards. Then I finally do a Sephora shop and get so overwhelmed by the sheer number of things I want, I'm basically paralyzed. It'll take me days, sometimes even a week obsessing over my cart. Which pallette? Do I need another pallette? If I put this back, I can get this... I didn't even know THAT was released! I'm terrible.1.gif

 

 

 

 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@RoadRageBarbie That has happened to me before - sometimes too many choices are a bad thing.  But look at it this way - you can always try and return!  Plus, once you (someday) have a bigger collection, then you hopefully won't be craving every collection out there.  Smiley Happy

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Newest pet peeve..

 

I enjoy writing reviews on products and posting them on the product page for others to use to determine whether they want to buy. And I 'get' that everyone has different things they are looking for in a product.. that face mask might have broke me out but left the next person radiant...

 

BUT, what grinds my beans is when I leave a very thorough step-by-step review of my experience with a product.. and someone votes it UNHELPFUL. 

 

Unhelpful? wtf. 

 

I think people are using the unhelpful button as the  DON'T AGREE button.
