Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

My last few orders with this new packing slip also haven't had the samples I selected. I did not have many problems before with getting the samples I chose, but I have not got the samples I selected since they have started with the new packing slips. 

 

I expect nothing less from Sephora anymore, It is just their normal. 

 

 

 

 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I noticed it, @KatieJiang. My 2 last orders came with this new slip, but the samples in the box were correct. And I have had past orders that came with the wrong samples, even though they were specified in the slip.So I don't think the new slip actually changed the sample (dis)organization. It's some kind of lottery game, I hope they sent you at least a good one Smiley Happy

Excuuuuuuuuuse me?!? I resent that! :-P

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Yeah I really these types of statement... those and the "I don't wear makeup I'm better than you attitude"... Why is it always some kind of competition. Can't people just let other people be and do what makes them happy... ugh.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

this honestly has nothing to do with cost of cosmetics but level of skill Smiley Very Happy ridiculous comparison seriously

anyway who cares buy Sephora because you like the brands and color or don't if you prefer only drugstore...it's not a competition

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Honestly though. I'm sick of being shamed for spending however much on my cosmetics. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Ebates NOT sending cash out checks. Poor communication, well if you can even call "no communication" communication. 

Irritated beyond belief. 

 

Long story short:

-Saw my check was issued on the 10th. A week later it still hadn't arrived. Contacted CS and wanted to confirm which address the check was sent to. (I had moved and changed my address preferences prior to August).

-CS rep told me their process is to wait 21 days. He did NOT even tell me where my check was sent. 

-21 days later, STILL no check. Contacted CS

-Took 4 days to respond. They asked where to send my check -_- 

-Now they're telling me I have to wait until Oct 9 to see it. 

 

WOW.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Ugh. I hope you get your check sooner than that. I stopped using Ebates years ago because of their shenanigans. Now I use other cash back sites that usually offer a higher percentage back.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Wow as if!  I seem to always have good CS... but that's ebates Canada.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Wow, that stinks. Ebates hasnt even been working for at all. Two large orders through them and not one registered to the site. Been months since they've worked for me

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I am lying in bed breastfeeding an almost sleeping baby and my lips are dry.  I am staring at my stash of 300+ lip products and can't do a thing right now.  Why am I not a Jedi?  I could really use the force right now. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I've been there @heartsmyface  now I keep a stash of lip products and lotions in my nightstand and my kitchen drawer downstairs, my purse, my car, etc....u get the point.  I'm too lazy to run to the one place I keep them stored on my vanity, so better to stash them everywhere u might possibly need them

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Oh hearts, if my psychic forces were in working order, I would teleport one over to you post haste. And forgive me for not congratulating you sooner! I just saw a picture of baby Zim yesterday! I'm so out of the loop. What a cutie pie!! Hope he's fast asleep. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Thanks pixie!  I'm all set in case of future dryness attacks now.  What self respecting beauty loving girl doesn't have a stash of lip balms by the bed?  - besides me last night? 😅

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

So I really don't like paying for shipping I try to avoid it all costs....

kicking myself right now because I just placed a $48 order in a rush and completely didn't pay attention so I paid for shipping when I could've just added a $2 item!! Too late to cancel now sigh sigh

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I also hate paying for shipping! I will convince myself I "need" something else to hit the free shipping mark.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I hate paying shipping too! sorry that happened to you.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I've done that before. Ouch. Smiley Sad

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

My biggest beauty pet peeve, which I have often been guilty of, is over-concealing the under eye area. For a couple of months, people used to ask me on a daily basis if I was really tired or sad that day and I was so confused! I realized that it's because I was concealing the *$&# out of my under eye area and then using a brightening powder. My undereye area was reverse racooned, cakey, and powder, and was making me look exhausted in a weird way.

 

So I went back to just a thin, natural layer of undereye conceal (my HG Lancome Effacernes) and just live with some of the redness showing through a bit. I feel a lot more beautiful this way somehow. I think part of it is because this whole saga happened during a research trip in Paris. The French are really not into concealing under eye bags and it grew on me.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@krunce honestly this is a hard one, like lipstick on teeth. I don't think anyone intends for the cakiness but sometimes, when u apply makeup, it looks very different hours later. Some people don't look closely at themselves throughout the day to understand the change their makeup went through. 

 

Also, selfies often tell lies- so if ppl rely on their pics vs reality of what their face looks like, they won't realize 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

This is so true about selfies.  

 

I was playing with gold and purple eyeshadow yesterday.  Looked at myself in the mirror and thought I looked like a clown. No way was I gonna go out with that look.

 

Took some selfies to remind me not to do the makeup that way.  I photographed gorgeously!  LMAO
