Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Yes @teufel that's so frustrating when it happens 😫 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Why oh why must Micellar water be so very cold?! Not that a warm Eau Micellaire would be preferable.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@MvLL horrible!! especially when you just woke up 🥶

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I am not buying anything else from olio e osso. 3 blushes went bad after like 7 months! I know they are “natural” so less preservatives but I’m not here for products that can’t even last a year. Meanwhile a random benefit hoola contour stock I’m pretty sure I got in Sephora play like 4 years ago Is completely fine. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@Kim888 I agree. It happened to me with RMS. Longer than a year but still not as long as some of my other not “natural” or clean products. I’m concerned about Tower 28 foundation will be the same.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@Kim888 omg, I hate when "natural products" don't last...they start to stink and change color after a few months, sometimes even before they have reach the actual expiration date. It happened so many times with lip balms to me. Annoying 😤

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

So true, @Skunk12puzzola. Those Shea butter-based ones especially! Also the Fresh lip SPF- oh.boy! If that one is in the heat, it's a 'goner' and will never regain its original texture. 

On really hot Summer days, say 25 C and above, I put my 'precious' lip stuff in the 'fridge. (Within zippy plastic bags)..

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I know @MvLL , I have the mint one from fresh fresh Sugar Mint Rush Freshening Lip Treatment .15 oz/ 4.3 g and it's the same. It melts very easily, but I always keep it in my purse because I love it, and it's so nice to wear it on the go under the face mask!!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

That's good to know, @Kim888! I hate when products go bad too quickly.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Ugh, that's aggravating, @Kim888. I've been eyeing a lip scrub from the brand but the whole "natural" aspect definitely has its downsides. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@quspork @I do have the lip scrub and think it’s a good one haha. But I haven’t had it long enough to comment on longevity. It smells heavily of coffee. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Fake eyelashes. Maybe one day I’ll master them, but for right now I struggle a lot. The corners never seem to want to stick and the glue gets a bit messy. I’m going to try and practice more tho! 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I think it was Mario that said it's easier to apply if "you're looking down".  As a newb myself with falsies, I did find that advice helpful when applying @Denisaaa 

 

I'm also self-conscious that it'll look as if I have a caterpillar on my lids but I just picked up SEPHORA COLLECTION
Luxe False Lash and these were great!  They look lush yet natural and blended right in with my "barely there" lashes 😅 👀

 

good luck!   😉

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@Denisaaa Start with individuals or cut the lashes in sections and then apply them.  Also thicker bands in my opinion are harder than the thin ones.  You got to wait till the glue gets real tacky before putting them on.  Sometimes it's easier with tweezers than your fingers.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Thank you for the advice! Is there any brands you recommend? I actually do have some ardell strip lashes that I haven’t tried yet. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@Denisaaa @For natural I love Ardell 110 and House of Lashes Au Naturale. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I hate that 40 minutes of my makeup routine is just eyeliner and mascara. I always mess up one wing and I get mascara on my eyelids every time! The rest of the face takes 5 minutes

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I feel this @SoTru . Eye liner wings are to hard.  I believe in you! You'll get it 🙂 I think I'm going to get this thou lol I struggle hard on wings

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

When I’m doing eyeliner and one wrong flick then I got to clean it up!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

My story is more like a bad day story but I was out in the rain, so it was a heavy downpour and I turned into the closest store which was a huge department store, That entrance led right to the makeup area... So you can imagine my mascara on my cheeks my hair soaking wet, and I'll never forget the looks from some makeup artists there Horrified! 😦😱😒

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@ionianblue - If they were so horrified, I'd like to know what they do to keep their hair dry and their mascara from running when caught in a downpour!  Instead of staring at you, one of them should have come forward with at least a tissue or something to help you cleanup you mascara. 🤨
