Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I  have bee stung lips right now... like stung by a real bee. It hurts so bad more than all the other stings on the rest of my body.  

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@moxiepancakes,

 I guess that you are swimming in Benadryl  right now!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Yep way too much benadryl, my coworkers find it excessively amusing. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Holy moly, that sounds painful. Did you walk into a swarm of bees?

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I was raking and accidentally hit a nest of cicada killers, they are a ground dwelling wasp like thing, the whole hive swarmed me.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Owwwww. I am glad you are not seriously hurt or allergic, but still 😨 I hope you get better soon!!!!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Oh my god, THAT'S what those are called! I had no idea! They have burrows all over my schools campus and  they are huge and terrifying and chase me everytime I walk by one of their "holes" ugh omg... I'm so sorry. @moxiepancakes

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

wow!  Take care.  Does not sound fun.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I'm fairly convinced that the NARS blush that I received from beauty dot com is a fake. 😞 Super bummed, hopefully they can reimburse me the 20$. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Would they not get into trouble for selling fake items? Legal issues? I know, here in Canada, counterfeits items cannot be sold as "the sale and production of counterfeit goods is a crime"

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I'm worried that the lime crime velvatine I got from Urban Outfitters is fake too...i know UO is listed as one of their authorized vendors, but the packing on mine has aspects of fakes as well as authentic? so im very confused.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Oh no, what makes you think it's fake? 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I don't know if you can really see from the image, but there are a few differences in the labels (Exhibit A being the legit blush). Plus, Tribulation's compact feels less rubbery than any of my other NARS blushes. Now I'm paranoid that all of my other beauty dot com purchases are fakes.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Upon further investigation, the mini Goulue that we were given for Rouging has the same face diagram in the lower-left corner. Maybe I'm being over-cautious? 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@AllysonJo Temptalia's photo of Tribulation looks the same as yours. I think they just slightly redid the packaging. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

That's a relief. Thanks for looking that up!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

So I don't get this... Canadian companies who are located in Canada, ship from Canada but sell in USD. Like WT_??? If I buy something in my country I except to pay in my currency... why would I pay like a third more. So while I'd like to encourage these companies by purchasing from them... I'm rethinking this whole thing....

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Oh I hate that too! I think its so much frustrating. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Must be frustrating as heck for y'all, but stable currency.  Just business. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I don't think you know how frustrating... our Canadian companies are being bought by other giant companies or giant companies come into this country and swallows up the Canadian competition... small ones like those I mentioned above sell in USD and other companies just sell out to the US... cough cough Bite... It's beyond frustrating. I'm all for encouraging small businesses/Canadian businesses and stuff but that's like a slap in the face and makes me want to shop elsewhere.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

This does sound frustrating.  How are they able to sell is USD in your country?

 

Is it because it is online???
