Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Me to all those "reviewers"

 

5Gs

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Yes! Also, people giving bad reviews for products they haven't used because they find an ingredient or the company unethical. 

 

Also sort of related, bad reviews of recipes where the person had switched out many ingredients, thus creating a totally unrelated dish. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Yes, I HATE useless reviews! I just read a review on Ulta for a hair mask, which I use and like, which made me lol so hard. I'll post a copy & paste under the spoiler for reference. It's perfectly fine if you don't want to use it based on the ingredients, but you can't start a review saying that you are returning it without trying and end the review of a product with "...[isn't] the money", "all bad and don't work" and "make a real mess of your hair" if you haven't tried it lol.

 

Spoiler
Returning without trying. List of ingredients doesn't appeal to me. Lemon peels, sugar maple, tree oil and fruit extracts. Don't care to put food in my hair. Most of the hair products today contain food products but this one is worst. Hair products today aren't worth the money. All bad and don't work. Make a real mess of you hair.

In the same vein, I hate when people review the fit of clothing without mentioning their measurements, even if they list their height and weight. Measurement of are in discerning the fit of a garment.

 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

hahaha oh my that's a funny review!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Ha, I wonder if there might be some correlation between food trends and beauty trends. I've read about how the big food manufacturers can't get Millennials to buy as much processed foods these days because we're all eating more natural and organic foods. Now there are so many natural, organic beauty products on the market, maybe since many have become so wary of putting excessive chemicals in and on their bodies?

 

I could go into a lengthy discussion about the effects of industrialization, but I'll stop here. I do collect vintage and antique cookbooks, and it's so interesting how prevalent processed foods were in the '70s-'80s (tomato aspic...gross). I bring this up because I wonder if the bad review in the above post was a generational thing.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Lol at the review in the spoiler! How silly. Some people.....-_-

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Yes! That and all the reviews about how people can't wait to get their product... not helpful...

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I hate this too, big pet peeve!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@jesscheems, I agree with you! I want to read reviews based on the actual performance of the product, not it being out of stock or something else!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@angel7594 Yes like the new Too Faced White chocolate palette. People are already complaining -smh-

 

So speaking of that palette the pans are .02 oz if we go based on the matte palette available on the direct site. I think a total weight of 6 grams. Even the ABH Mario palette has super tiny pans. I hope this isn't some new trend with companies!! Even if I go through an eyeshadow or not it sucks to pay a premium for very tiny pans!!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Exactly, @jesscheems! The drama over the white chocolate chip palette in the reviews is crazy this morning. And it's not even out of stock!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

OMG how can there be 21 pages of reviews for a product that nobody has even used?

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I don't understand why people are so worked up over this! There are some pretty dramatic people that have posted "reviews" complaining that the item is OOS, and the people complaining about their complaining using reviews aren't helping either (hypocrite much?).

 

Is there something magical about this palette that I missed? Is it infused with magical unicorn tears or mermaid dandruff??

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

OMG @k617 "mermaid dandruff"!!!! 😂😂😂  Too funny!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Yes- why is it out of stock already- it's not like it hasn't been hyped as the best thing since sliced bread. Never heard of this palette before and suddenly it's the must have palette of the year. It sold out because it was hyped so much.

 

I do have a peeve with it though. I want to know why the palette isn't fully open so that the top three shades can be clearly seen. You can see them a little better in the next picture .

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Haha and of course 30+ listings on ebay..😅 This happens for every single hyped launch. Ugh.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

^ The most annoying thing of all= resellers!!! Good grief =/

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Youtube and its (sometimes) blind followers:

 

I'm an esthetician and I had a client come to me a few years back who was bothered by her breakouts but when I asked her about what she does, she instantly became defensive over the fact that I asked her how many times she washed her face. She only washed it once a day because she said someone on youtube said they only wash their face once a day. OH and she went to bed with her makeup on and only washed it in the morning because that's what the same person on youtube said she did. She absolutely REFUSED to do anything that this youtuber didn't do. I asked for the youtube channel. This girl was clearly not a skincare expert and shouldn't be making those kinds of recommendations. She didn't have perfect skin (or makeup skills) but I'm not one to judge. Just don't go to see someone trained in the field for years and then COMPLETELY refuse any of our advice when we offer it to you! It's just disrespectful! Unfortunately, she wasn't the first person to be like this!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@volta  totally understand how this can be frustrating... I remember one year this girl showed people how to make mascara with Oreo's??? Like what??? OMG I hate the whole youtube crowd... I don't get it. I only like Kandee J and Wayne Goss.  At least they are professionals.

 

I also wanna point out thank god for estheticians! I don't know what I would do without mine!!! Smiley Very Happy

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@veronika23  I always say that the best youtube makeup artists are the ones who do makeup on many different types of people. You really can't judge a person's caliber if you only see them doing their own makeup. I guarantee you that doing someone else's makeup is a WHOLE different ballpark than just doing your own. Many-a-makeup artists I have known and trained have been put in their place when it comes to that fact. I do have respect for WG for that reason. Don't get me wrong, I think Kandee has an adorable look, but sometimes her overly enthusiastic attitude can seem a bit overwhelming for me LOL

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@volta  Oh trust me I know how different it is to do someone else's makeup. Smiley Wink

Yeah I get that Kandee's bubbly personality isn't for everyone... I like it though Smiley Happy
