Palette

 

Not pallete, pallet, palete, or any other permutation. Palette.

 

And great, now I've trained spellcheck to recognize them all. Facepalm.  🤣

 

I try not to be that gal, that grammar snob that everyone hates, but gee whiz... seeing palette spelled every which way but correctly all over the main feed is grating on me more than the continual CS complaints. (And as to the CS complaints about samples and "unsuccessful authorization" and slow shipping etc etc, I have a love-hate relationship with them...I kinda like seeing that folks are complaining, and I hope Sephora uses them as constructive feedback to improve their current practices...but at the same time I'm also kinda tired of seeing them over and over and over.)

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

With how often I see it spelled wrong, I've started to doubt what the correct spelling even is lol.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

LMAO @RGbrown this is one of my biggest spelling pet peeves!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I had to chuckle at this since in my job, I deal with pallets all the time, as in freight and shipping pallets. I am absolutely guilty of using both terms interchangeably (even though I know they are not!) and I don't think anyone has ever noticed! Though truth be told, I'm more likely to be discussing pallets instead of palettes on a daily basis anyhow 😞 Infinitely less fun.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@k617 Heehee, that would be the DREAM! Though my entire makeup/skincare stash is probably nearing pallet proportions...

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

But @MissPuff...the real question is, do you deal with pallets of palettes???

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I'm going crazy from all the threads asking for pallet suggestions. What's the best palate? Palett? Subculture Palete?

 

Please, reader, if you're reading this, please don't ask for any more palette suggestions. Do a search, and you shall find what you seek.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Lol, paleté! 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@trishavt permission granted. Proceed with caution 😄

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@k617  Which is better - ABH Modern Renaissance palet or Too Faced Sweet Peach palet?

 

LOL!  I try to be patient with the questions and help the newcomers, but I know what you mean, girl! 🙂

 

I have honestly had the hardest time with the search feature on the new site - it doesn't seem nearly as accurate as on the old BT and the results seem to display in a totally random order.  If the search feature functioned better, it would probably be easier for people to see that their question has already been posted (possibly with correct spelling, too!) 🙂

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@k617 Can we please pin this to home page in bold flashing red letters?

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Yeeesss...one more thread titled something like "sweet peach or chocolate bar??????" and I may just set my computer on fire so I never have to see this place again. 

😢

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Everything in the beauty world described as 'limited edition'. I'm sure we've all ranted before and probably on this very thread. But seriously it's getting on my last nerve. I don't care to run out for products anymore with arms flailing in the air and the hype is now dead knowing things will come back. Good for those that miss out but beauty junkies that are crazily looking for particular items- well I say don't bother 😄

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

So many new beauty products...nobody in my life that cares enough to talk to about them lol

 

And I'd almost rather see those weird spam posts about movies than the incessant threads about receiving incorrect samples. WE GET IT. And (I) STILL don't care. Samples aren't a right. Sure, is mildly frustrating when they don't include any, but its always the first thing I see when I log on. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

THIS! All the posts that are essentially, WHERE ARE MY SAMPLES?!?! is a big turn off from the main feed. I can understand a thread or two, and then lengthy discussion or agreements within the threads, but why make new threads all day, everyday?

 

Along those lines, it seems like many people are not bothering to search for answers in existing posts, but just starting new threads willy nilly, creating a lot of "clutter" and noise.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I feel like ever since the switch over to the new platform, there's been a lot of "noise" distracting from the conversations that I really do care about 😞

 

The groups are supposed to help filter out topics I'm not interested in, but it doesn't help when I've seen these posts about missing samples/wrong item in order/etc. not posted in the Customer Service group and in the VIB/non-beauty groups instead.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@k617 I totally agree. I keep thinking maybe it's because I'm old and I hate feeling like that (because I'm not actually that old). But I just find myself skimming over the threads on the first page and they are almost all customer service issues that I'm not super-interested in, and then I give up. Trying to find the posts & people that I do want to read about is almost impossible, or maybe I just don't have the patience for it. Who would have thought that I would miss so many people that I didn't even know in real life 🙂 ? I haven't wanted to complain, because I know this must have been a lot of work and the mods are always great. I'm just a little disappointed, but hoping there are still bugs to be worked out and it will get better :).

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Trying to do a wing on wrinkly eyelids.  When did I develop wrinkly eyelids?  

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Ugh, me too.  I never tried to do a wing until like 5 years ago, probably.  And then, I keep trying to figure out if my eyes were ALWAYS this droopy, or if I could have once done a wing, if only I was young enough. I find myself trying to look at old pictures and figure out if there was ever a chance, lol. @heartsmyface 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Welcome to my world @heartsmyface

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Ugh, ditto. Wings are tricky enough without having to account for a third dimension. And liquid liners can be finicky...a feathered look from it following the valley of the wrinkle in that split second before it dries is so not cool. Such a pain!
