Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@k617 no base coat... It was a darker color and I was just swatching it.  I own a lot of dark colors by other brands and never had that problem.

 

Oh man I can't go without painted toes... get a pedi like monthly LOL  and yeah chipped toe nail polish looks terrible. Glad mine lasts like a month! 😄

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@veronika23 Yikes! A swatch did that to your nails?! Crazy!!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@k617 yup!  Wasn't too happy. I think I'll stick with brands I really love like Cirque Colors. I am so impressed with them. Same goes for ILNP.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

This happens to me too, with any nail polish I use on my toes. Now I always have to have my nails painted or they look yellow 😞

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Long flights. Hate them. For so many reasons… But, let’s keep ‘em beauty related… They mess with me inside out. My skin goes crazy. My everything goes crazy. Then I go crazy. Gah!

LOL the gif!!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Oh man, I feel you! Flying just throws my skin all out of wack, it gets super dehydrated and then starts overproducing oil so compensate. And then I get painful deep acne along my jaw. And what makes it worse? I travel for work. I fly regularly. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@lyravega ugh flights wreck my skin. It becomes oily yet dry at the same time. And I swear it makes my zits come to life. I can get on a plane zit free, but once I arrive and look in a mirror, there they are. My very scientific claim is it must be the cabin pressure. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

For me it totally depends on the airline I'm flying. I can handle longer flights if they provide entertainment and alcohol haha. Thankfully I haven't had any skin issues while I fly, but I can definitely feel a littler dryer while I'm in the air. I prep with a moisturizing mask the night before I leave and drink TONS of water before taking off, but not so much I'm needing to use that awful plane bathroom every 20 minutes. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I feel your pain @lyravega! I started bringing a bottle of hydrating mist with me, it seems to help.

 

Flights aside, the change in climates when I'm traveling also makes my skin go crazy 😞

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Change in climate is the worst! That messes me up even more! But, this time it was especially bad. I’ve no idea why. I had absolutely great, fantastic, amazing time! But I am happy to go back to US as I hope my body will go back to its normal self asap!!! I can’t deal with everything that is going on on my skin, and internally, anymore… Time to go home… ( Which is funny… I was born and grew up in Europe! Dableep?! )

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

OK, I keep seeing this blogger(?) IG'er(?) post about her collab with X company. I feel like it was announced MONTHS ago and she showed photos of her looking at colours, laying things out, etc. But to date, no palette, and she has had her IG followers vote on EVERYTHING. The palette layout, the palette outer casing colour and now EACH SHADOW COLOUR!

 

I get the whole "you guys are helping me make this happen"! but... seriously? A palette is great when all the colours work well together. Sure, every time a shadow colour is voted on they're from the same family, but it's not that they only have subtle differences. This palette could become a huge mess if the final colour combo doesn't work.

 

To date, there have been 5 votes since July... I believe there are 10+ shadows in the palette. Oy.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I seen this too and thought it was silly!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@k617 its funny that you say this because I was thinking the same thing! I vote on the colors I like, but then wonder if they will work together in the palette? I feel like the way I've voted so far is that I like the two colors (for each voting group) TOGETHER, but hell if I know if I'd like them with the other pairs I've picked, hah! At least so far the colors seem to be a bit different than every other orange-red-maroon offering which has been out lately.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I thought it was nice and engaging to have her followers decide on various aspects of packaging, but I agree somewhat that choosing each eyeshadow color for the palette is borderline overboard.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Hah wouldn't go as far as to say she's a blogger considering most of her text is emoticon (unless she has a blog I have no clue about....). I honestly try to ignore it (and all her other posts about her secondary IG). What makes it easy is @veronika23's constant vigilance and updates to this board 😄

 

I really liked the vote on the palette layout and packaging because I thought that involved the community in a really fun way...the colors are a bit much though. You're right in that I'm not too sure if this will be cohesive enough.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Hahah @keepra @veronika23 I knew I didn't have to say who it is! 😉

 

I agree the packaging and layout voting was kind of cool. The colours? Way too much. Maybe she could have put together a few different layouts on her own, and have her followers vote on the overall layout instead of individual colours??

 

COHESIVE. Yes, that's the word missing from my post!!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

hahaha thanks @keepra 🙂  I agree with you on the voting of layout and packaging but shades too?? Oh man that's a disaster waiting to happen right there! Guess we will find out soon enough what that thing looks like! 😄

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

When you wait for better samples, promos, or Ebates and the item goes out of stock permanently... 😞 The minute I got the employee appreciation discount, I should have jumped on that checkout button lol

 

This happened with the Sweet Peach palette, and now I missed Mario's Master palette. I'm hoping I can find it in stores since that's what happened with Sweet Peach

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I lost interest in the sweet peach palette when I saw photos of it, but it really bothers me what they did with that palette. I can't stand it when a company makes something ultra limited/extremely hard to get. It's completely ridiculous! I feel like things like that are planned, and that's not okay to do to your customers. I know the company said the reason why they were so limited is because the ingredients were hard to make (or something along those lines), but then why even make the palette? I know people are going to rip their hair out just trying to get one this holiday season.

 

(sorry, I didn't mean to rant on your post)

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Hate when that happens!!  Have they confirmed they won't be receiving any more?  I was hoping they would bring it back for the November sale.
