Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Bottles and containers that have 1/4 of product unreachable in bottom!  


Bottles that clog - or stick - or spray the product sideways (no work clothes before applying foundation - eveh!)


New mascara that is dryer than the vial I just threw out.


Eyeliner that is a memory the second I start my car. 


Non consensual glitter


UPS delivering my huge Sephora order to a stranger that was probably excited, then graciously (and fortunately) was honest enough to give it back (this DID happen to me!)  


And I agree with high pressure to purchase a product when I have clearly stated that I can't use things like that for XXXX reasons (am old... will settle in lines.  Too prefume-y - I will sneeze.  


Also - having to choose between a discount code and a fabulous promo offering.

non consensual glitter also made me giggle! Smiley Happy Smiley Happy @JillyBeanTX @Tamara76

but I get so mad at things that clog! had a full bottle of shaving cream do that. now I avoid that brand and bottle type. it was the metal type so there's no way to open it (says "don't puncture, will explode" - type).

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Non-Consensual Glitter 🤣🤣🤣



Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Oh! The last one always kills me, to choose the discount or the promo? Always feel like I made the wrong choice!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I popped in to Sephora yesterday to check out the new Too Faced highlighters, which are pretty but a little too glittery for me, which I could have overlooked if the packaging was a little more sturdy. Anyway, I really thought I was going to grab the rose gold one, so when I decided it wasn't worth it, I checked out the other highlighters at the stand.


I fell in love with the Kevyn Aucoin Neo Limelight one, but as I was checking out the packaging saw that it's made in China. Am I the only one that's really disappointed by that? I feel that if I'm going to spend $60 on a highlighter (or any makeup), I want it to be made in North America or Europe. Am I crazy? I was just really surprised such a high end brand is made in China. So, I went home highlighter-less Smiley Sad

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Chinese manufacturers can produce whatever quality you need. It's the decision makers in North America to blame. 


Let's say for a product that costs 5 dollars to make in North America, it'll probably cost 3~4 dollars to make the product with the same quality in China. But if companies in North America decide they would only pay a dollar for it, you think it's the Chinese manufacturers' fault? You think companies will accept the goods without inspecting the quality? Becca for example, when customers found out about the poor quality of the JH collection, they blamed the Chinese manufacturer. But come on, do you really think Becca wouldn't know about the poor quality in the first place? Do you really think a big company like Becca doesn't have a sound system for quality? Do you really think if that's what happened, they wouldn't have sued the a*s off the manufacturer?


I apologize if I offended anybody. 




Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Just buy it!!!  You live here.  


Don't start panicking now! Won't be the first or last time you consume Made in China goods.  ;')

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

For several personal reasons, which include recommendations from Doctors as well. I will be trying to avoid purchasing goods made in China.


Dont worry another product will swoop you away soon. Probably even tomorrow because we are beauty junkies Smiley Very Happy

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I wwatched the Kevyn Aucoin one and rejected it due to it being made in China. I'm a little sad about all of the ABH highlighter palettes being made in China too 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

agree completely. Also, I wish all sites like Sephora would just list where all items are made on the item page instead of being secretive about it. I just return any item I bought online that says Made in China anyways. its the first thing I check on something new I bought. Also, I'll add this but most people already know that if it says "made in PRC" that is "people's republic of china" which is of course "china". its a sneaky way some companies try to hide where an item is made. there is also the other shady thing where it says "made in USA of domestic and imported parts". I just go ahead and assume it means its was mostly made in China. these high end companies need to stop doing this. ETA: actually I feel all makeup/skincare/etc type companies need to stop doing this because its potentially dangerous to consumers. Also, the made in china issue seems to pop up more often on palettes and value sets from various brands sold at Sephora and elsewhere for some reason. just something I've noticed over time. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Yeah I also noticed they don't tell you online where a product is made. I wish they did that, too.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@snoflakefaerie I get where you're coming from. I try to stay away from products made in China and I am bummed that the Kevin Aucoin palette was made in China because it was on my list for the spring vib sale Smiley Sad

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I was super bummed. It is so pretty, but I can't justify it. I think I might grab the Tarte Skin Twinkle Vol 2 instead. I've got to swatch it again, but I'm hoping that will satiate my need for glow!


Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I'm going to have to encourage you to try the Tarte Skin Twinkle Vol 2 palette. It's so beautiful and buttery!! I have a ton of highlight palettes and individual highlights and I still find myself reaching for this palette the most. Do it! 😬 @snoflakefaerie

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

When your local Sephora has all the colors of the MUF Starlight powders EXCEPT for the one you wanted so you go online to order it and it arrives half opened with glitter EVERYWHERE Smiley Sad Guess I will be at Sephora on my lunch returning this glitter bomb....sigh
