Having to color match seasonally, le sigh. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

When a great gift idea hits you waaayyyy after the fact. I kept passing on the Naked Smokey palette when it'd go on sale for $27 because it didn't appeal to me that much since I had a lot of the colors, but now I just realized it would have been a perfect gift to pick up for one of my friends. Hope it goes on sale again. Even on sale it's a bit beyond our friend group's polite gift giving range, so I can't really justify getting it full priced as a gift, but now I sure am tempted.

Crappy nail polish. Ugh! I ordered a few Formula X nail polishes during the massive restock and I was particularly excited about the Incandescent one. I just tried it today and holy moly it's terrible. It was just a thin, watery, streaky mess. One of the worst polishes I've ever tried. Moral of the story: do not buy Formula X Incandescent.


Also, do not buy the CVS beauty 360 non-acetone nail polish remover pads. These are the worst nail polish remover pads I've ever used.

ETA: Oh, and Marc Jacobs Blanche sucks too. FIVE coats and it's still streaky. Ugh!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I just made an Ulta purchase and noticed AFTER I placed my order that I missed the platinum mark by a few cents...oh boy! Guess I will be making another order soon just to justify requalifying for platinum again haha Smiley Wink

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Falling just a couple dollars short of free shipping/GWP/etc and the company you're buying from not having anything bellow $10 you can throw on to make the minimum. It's either miss the promo/free shipping by $2 or commit to spending $15 more on something you didn't really want to avoid $6 shipping or to get a deluxe sample.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

When you place an order with Sephora on the 18th and it still hasn't been shipped on the 28th... I called the Rouge line and cancelled the order today.


Between this order and the continuing website issues, I'm going to be consciously trying to avoid purchasing stuff from Sephora for a while.  

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Hm.. I usually don't have problems with products being damaged during shipping (~10% chance?) but a palette from Sephora arrived shattered today. 😭 Why UPS, why?

When you report inappropriate content to moderators and nothing's been done Smiley Sad  @KatieBT 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2


As a vegetarian; nothing annoys me more than a brand claiming they're "cruelty free" when they sell real mink lashes. Even if I still ate meat, this would upset me knowing it's false advertising and torturous. Even if a company claims they collect fallen hair, the amount of hair they collect is not natural. Nor is it to be believed it just "fell". The most important thing when purchasing is to do your research. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

This is a silly pet peeve but I'm kind of annoyed at myself that I didn't take advantage of Ebates's birthday week, especially with Ulta and Macy's. There's things in both stores that I know I'm going to buy at some point that I could've really saved up on. I had a ton of multipliers for Ulta too. I shouldn't be mad that I saved money but somehow I'm annoyed that I did, probably because I know I'm gonna spend it eventually and won't get such a great deal.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

When lipstick comes off the corners of my mouth- so annoying!!!!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

when products you really want to order during the sale, are only available on the website after the sale.. smh

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

everybody knows that when you contour or highlight your cheek bones i go to school and i see so many girls with too much makeup and it gets on my nerves IMG_20170405_084856.jpg

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

More Ulta pet peeves. 


I did a return and the SA created a NEW rewards acct under my phone number. So now of course my points are all messed up and in two places. 


Extremely rude. How can you create an acct for me without my consent? 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

So... I might be breaking up with Ulta. 


I called this morning to find out if there was any ETA regarding the UD Basquiat Vault. The first rep that I spoke to had no idea what I was talking about so when that conversation ended, I called back.  The second rep told me that the stock hadn't come in yet and he wasn't sure if it would but when/if it does, it will go on the website.


Then at lunch I see that trendmood has posted that the Vault is available... for people who managed to put it in their favorites before it disappeared from the website hours before the scheduled launch.  Then there were some elated comments from people who could access it and confusion from those (like me) who couldn't see it even with the link.


So I called customer service again.  "Oh that's just a rumor, nothing is available, we don't know when it'll be available, it's a website glitch that we've alerted our tech people to. yadda yadda yadda" "Um," I say, "it's not a rumor, people have posted pictures of their order confirmations."  "No, it's absolutely a rumor but some of our stores have this [online only] item." Riiiiiiiight.


Then on the train home, I see this Ulta Beauty post on TwitterScreen Shot 2017-05-02 at 7.39.59 PM.png


Confuse me?  I thought there was still a delay. I thought that the stories of vaults purchased earlier were "rumors".

So, because I'm a hunter and obsessive, I call again.  And the Ulta rep tells me that it hasn't launched, they don't know when it will launch and no one has actually purchased the vault, maybe they are just seeing it in their carts from the [nonexistent] time when they were able to put it there.  "Nope," I say "your twitter just completely contradicts what you just said."  And as I went back to twitter so that I could tell her which tweet I was referring to:


Screen Shot 2017-05-02 at 7.37.31 PM.png


"oh" says the rep, "let me check with someone, I only know what I was told..."  Then she comes back to confirm that yes, there was a launch of 50ish vaults and they are all gone and none of the higherups at Ulta thought to tell the CS reps so that they wouldn't be giving false information all day. 





TL;DR WTF Ulta, that Basquiat Vault Launch was horrendous.



Thanks for letting me rant

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Somewhat beauty related because it involves Sephora but I HATE not being able to write reviews because the site is still messed up! I want to write my heart out and praise all the items I have recently purchased that are awesome and would highly recommend but am not able to on any device or browser that I use Smiley Sad

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I never thought the sales at sephora were that great especially near black friday where you expect great things its such a let down.They always put the items no one really wants on sale everything else is full price lol.


LUSH's after christmas sale also annoys me because they have a virtual wait meaning you cant even enter the website until its your turn and then after everythings picked over by customers ahead of you then you can add items to your cart but nothings left over.


Makeup restocks also irritate me because its stressful adding items to your cart and buying the items in a hurry to make sure you get them.It is the most annoying uncomfortable stressful purchase you will ever make.When its over you kinda dont even remember what you bought because you bought the items so fast and just added whatever you could into your cart before it sold out in minutes. 



Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

What is the point of reaching the top level of a reward program where one of the perks is that you get stuff earlier than others (urban decay rockstar) and another company releases before they do (sephora on app exclusive)

Talking about the basquiat collection

Rant over. 

P.s. I couldn't wait Smiley Happy I bought what I wanted on the app yesterday 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

So excited for the sale and to order my no. 1 goodie I forgot to use a gift card I have been saving Smiley Sad looks like I got to go with using it on my no.2!


Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I left my bag with my skincare routine at home and just got back to college from break :'( .At least it's a good reason to start breaking into my 400 samples while I wait for my main routine to get shipped to me.

How I feel after I finish slathering sunscreen on my face :/
