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

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@veronika23Don't get me wrong, there's nothing wrong with that. I tend to be bubbly when I deal with clients because that's the way I do business. However, I know that I am a completely person off the clock so when I see someone who also acts extremely bubbly, it's kind of hard for me to tell if the person is being genuine or not because that's the act I play too.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@volta  Gotcha.  I follow her on FB. She seems genuine to me... just a sweet good person who cares. Smiley Happy

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Are there any youtubers who have authentic skincare tips?

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Tarababyz and she always tells you to use sunscreen Smiley Happy I think she's really sweet!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

She's one of my favs.  I can sit and listen to her talk for hours.  

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@sultananatalie The only YouTube person I'm ok with is Stephanie Nicole. I'm definitely not that savvy with skin care but she is good at explaining things and is  good at educating on skin care. She is not a dr or pro but comes off as very well informed in the skincare world. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@sultananatalie  @darkiceis   I LOVE Stephanie Nicole. She's one of the few youtubers who I genuinely like. For one, I am a deductive person and I absolutely LOVE how she breaks down accounting facts and figures. Then she also compares it to other products and then gives an honest opinion. She is one of the few people who I feel will give a genuine opinion about a product because she's not sponsored by brands who I can tell will give only positive glowing reviews because they don't want to anger the brands and lose getting free swag.

 

I have yet to find a reputable youtube channel that deals primarily with skin care. If you search skin care on youtube, you will find makeup youtubers telling you about their skin care routine. The only thing I have a problem with that is that they are only addressing THEIR own skin. I understand it's much more difficult to have a channel that talks about skincare because every person's skin is completely different. You may have two people who say their both oily, but then if you break it down, one person could be oily in the tzone, big pores, hormonally triggered, prone to whiteheads but with dry patches around the mouth (i.e. ME) . Another person could have all-over oily skin, prone to blackheads, prone to acne, rosacea, and allergies.

 

Therefore, it's not logical for there to be many great channels dedicated to just skin care because no two people are alike with their skin and you can't pinpoint a general one-size-fits-all routine. Skin care, like going to the doctor, is highly customized because there are so many factors to consider. I'm not saying great videos don't exist, but it's hard finding solid channels.

 

SEE I TOLD YOU I was a deductive person!!!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@volta I hate YouTube videos that have DIY skincare tutorials. Especially those tutorials where the youtubers mix Elmer's glue with charcoal or with something else. Those videos make me cringe.
