So Ulta has these skincare samplers on sale for $15, great deal but the packaging is so excessively large and unnecessary it makes me sad. It's like double the size it needs to be. Will keep them to reuse for gifts or whatever comes up.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I'm having a run of bad luck with beauty purchases.  First there was the YMMV indie eye shadows that looked nothing like the website, then I treated myself to the ND 28 palette because it's my birthmonth and I wanted to make up for the crappy etsy purchase - and it arrived damaged.


On top of all that, I also treated myself to some Rae Morris brushes (the ones that stand on their own on a magnetic plate) and the magnets in one of the brushes doesn't work.


I think the cosmos is pointing me towards a no buy. Le sigh.

I bought a new shirt today and I was too excited that I accidentally made a small hole in the shirt. Smiley Sad I pulled my shirt out too quickly and I guess the metal part of my drawer caught on the shirt... grrrr

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

i swear the foil seals they put on some products are impossible to get off! like when you're in the shower, and you're trying to get a shampoo/face was/etc. open with wet hands, and it's just way too difficult. ugh!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Well I get to be the annoying customer tomorrow. I bought a pair of shoes at DSW on Sunday, just got a $10 off coupon today. Luckily I was going to the mall anyhow, but now I get to lug them in, return, and then rebuy for the cheaper price tomorrow. Hopefully they won't hate me, but it would have been nice to know this was coming up to save the hassle.

When people over draw their eyebrows, like it's out of proportion on their faces. :/

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Not sure where to put this, but I'm having serious deja vu or I saw the future earlier today in another thread...

And now, Debbie Reynolds... let's all sleep til Sunday.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I found a new pet peeve this afternoon: stores that do not price match their website prices.


Most of the BECCA items I wanted in the Sale section went OOS pretty quickly, but I noticed my local Sephora had them in stock and made a trip to stock up. They weren't on sale there - and when asked if they'd honor their online price, the SA refused to do so stating it was against company policy. Smiley Sad

All these llama pictures make me want to find a local farm and spend the day with them. Such personality!

Morphe shipping is a stab in the heart for me😭

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Online Christmas shopping has destroyed my soul.

I posted about this before, but seriously, I can't get a break.

Today's pet peeve: my hair. 

I'm having Christmas dinner with my family tonight and decided to try to add some waves to my naturally straight hair. I wish I hadn't bothered. Some ends curled beautifully, others will not budge. So my hair is a mixture of straight chunks and curls. -__- Oh well, all those curls will be gone in 10 mins anyway. Now I remember why I don't bother curling it.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Fragrance samples are so unexciting, BUT I was happy that I choose AND RECIEVED the Pinrose and the Moschino. I put the pinrose on at 1230 this afternoon and I can still smell it (at 3am!). I'm quite a fan so far. It definitely makes me want to look into other pinrose scents. I tried Merrymaker as a previous sample and that one smelled like straight up rubbing alcohol on me. The dried out pad smelled delicious that night when I went to throw it out, but on me I could barely smell anything after the alcohol finally dried down.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

We switched to Direct Tv on Friday and I am sooo lost!


My shows are not set to Series Record, can't find shows, don't know the channels......and, I just want to watch Judge Judy!


Their Guide is not ADHD friendly!!!

It is so cluttered looking.


#confused #lost #missingmyshows

 SoChoix shipping. It's so slow Smiley Sad

I placed an order last Tuesday, and received the shipping notification Friday - ok, they need time to prepare fresh samples - except it has not been shipped out yet. 7 days later!

Once USPS receives it, it will be 2 or 3 more days until I get it.

Detail: I live less than an hour away from their address :/

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Some people had quality issues with the 50% Laura Geller orders from last week, which was discussed in full detail in the Deals thread. My order arrived today, and I am happy to report everything is in tip top shape, HOWEVER, I was sent the wrong shade in the Eye Rimz I ordered. Of course, there was a moment I doubted myself and thought I accidentally ordered the wrong shade so I doubled checked and definitely did not. The packing slip, the "carton contents" sticker, and my order confirmation all show the right shade, someone just made a mistake. I'm not like totally "complaining," because I paid less than $4 for it, but I would like the shade I selected. If it's an issue of it being OOS, I should have been notified. I've never ordered from Laura Geller direct before, and I contacted their CS, so hopefully they can fix this for me. 



TL;DR: While my entire Laura Geller order is fabulous and I can't believe I deal I got, they sent me the wrong shade of one item and I'm just slightly irritated. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Ordered a brush from Sephora on sale... it came with the brush head + metal thing not properly glued to the stick. It fell off as soon as I took off the plastic case. 


Returned it in Sephora and saw it appear again online. Reordered it and EXACT SAME ISSUE.


Where is the quality control in that....


I didn't pay for a brush so I'd have to glue it back and fix it myself.
