@gonerogue Stupid might be harsh, just silly mostly. I'm hoping the Marc Jacobs bronzer is one of the sneak peeks.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

having clear skin for months and waking up to a new "friend" on your chin!!!!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Yup! I had clear skin and I'm noticing texture now. Not sure what product caused it. Could be the ABH X NG palette because I had texture issues last year with a glow kit but I just had to buy this one and I'm not returning it because I regretted returning my last one Smiley Very Happy lol

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I can totally relate to this! My skin was nice and clear and then I stopped using good genes for 3 days I woke up with 3 new friends scattered around my face 😭😭😭

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I just did my nails and now I want to eat Cuties (mandarins) for breakfast!!!!  ;') 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Did my signing in tip work? Or it's fixed?

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

It comes and goes. Hopefully, it stays good! 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I hate how every time I fall in love with a Lush product it's either holiday, LE or gets discontinued. (I'm looking at you Yummy Mummy body conditioner, yog nog, tiny hands and LOVE spell!!! UGH!) I'll go on a no buy from Lush because it drives me nuts to not have any product consistency but then I end up right back there, following the glorious smells. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Same! I love that Yummy Mummy body conditioner but I didn't see it last year and I don't think they will come out with it this year.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Nope, I don't think it is either. I've been so hopeful too. It just makes me bonkers. I love the body conditioners but all the good smelling ones have been seasonal.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

This has probably been mentioned before, but I'm too lazy to go back multiple pages so I will repost my anger...

 

The new Sephora and BT update Smiley Mad. Constantly logged out of the site, can't view my loves or purchases, can't write reviews (which I want to for my latest purchases), can't read the questions on the product page, and can't navigate the site anymore!!

 

I need to find whoever is in their IT department and give them a firm lesson. These changes are not user friendly, nor are they helpful Smiley Sad

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Agreed, the Sephora website is a PITA after their update.  Hopefully their IT department is working to resolve this. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

It is almost as if they didn't beta test this site on all devices and operating systems. Just such a failure all around. I do not understand how this rollout was approved. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I have always been told that if you want to see a woman's true age look at her neck, decolletage and hands so I have always taken good care of these areas. Anything I put on my face like moisturizers, peels, etc., I also put on my hands. I have received compliments from strangers stating that I should be hand model at the age of 47 and I'm proud of my hands. Recently, I had a mini facial at the Clarins counter at Macys. When it came time to give me the hand massage, the sales associate said, "Wow you have beautiful hands. Don't you ever cook or clean?" I usually have snappy replies but I thought this was really rude and interpeted it to mean that I don't do anything useful with my time. I'm not into cooking but my apartment is spotless. I wondered if there was a cultural connotation since the sales associate is Asian and she was telling me how she gets up at dawn to cook and clean for her husband. Was I being overly sensitive? I would like to add that every time I go into Macys I have had a negative experience at the beauty counters so this was my last time.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Maybe it was meant as a compliment.  Like she thought you were well off enough to have someone else do it for you?  I'd have to hear the whole conversation and her tone to pick up on whether it was a gentle jab at you.  It could very well have been an unconscious jealousy coming through.  Maybe she is used to having nicer hands than most people who come through so she immediately got defensive when she saw nicer ones than hers, lol.  

All I know is that I've always had weird pudge fingers and I know no one would ever say I had nice hands, so I'd take it as a compliment.  

Can I also mention that I would never get up and cook and clean for my husband.  If I cook or clean it's because I want to for me.  The Hubby just benefits from the fact I like to do so.    

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I'm sorry you had this experience @Crazy4Sephora1! I think you may be on to something, it may be an honest cultural disconnect. She should have stopped the comment at, "Wow you have beautiful hands". What followed was unnecessary but she may not have even known it was offensive. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I hate it when you listen to store associates make horrible recommendations to customers. I was in Shoppers Drug Mart (kind of the Canadian equivalent to Ulta or CVS) and a woman was looking for basically a full face of makeup. The store associate came to my aisle and proceeded to tell her that the Aveeno BB Cream is a good dupe for the Smashbox BB Cream (WHAT?? what blog did you read that from LOL) and tell her more products to get for her face. The poor woman listened to everything she said and filled her basket full of items. They might have worked for her, but it really didn't seem like she told her any best sellers or well known items. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I don't think I could help myself, I would have befriended that poor woman and shown her a few of my favorite things lol. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I was honestly going to, but that day I wore almost nothing on my face so I didn't want to come off as an uneducated crazy person Smiley Tongue 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I have been looking everywhere for the last month or so for my Nars lipstick in 'Dolce Vita' I could not find it anywhereee. I've been peeved at myself for losing it since it's my go to nude. 

 

Last night while rearranging my mini lipsticks, noticed one of my mini Nars' was a bit bigger than the others. DUH. Because it was my full size Dolce Vita!

*face palm*

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I haaate when that happens, and when I get stuck on one shade out of the 50 I have and I dig through everything only to find it in a purse or something.!!
