Kk thanks…

Did you find another product that works that you would recommend? 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Unfortunately I have not found anything that works @fereclegall.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

When people use sink for makeup storage MESSY like I get having to use it but keep it clean at least!

Happy Holiday

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I have a couple but I’ll only name a few, first when I break out after using a product not the company’s fault but I dislike breaking out, next is when company’s overprice things, when there is a better alternative for that item but at the same time they are trying to make money, next is when applicators are uncomfortable for me to use.

When a brand makes you purchase a pump for foundation separately for more money. (Estee Lauder)

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

You are saving money, as you only need to buy the pump once. Keep the pump from your old bottle to use when you get a new bottle of the product. I hate having to dispose of a perfectly good pump because the new one also comes with a pump. That old pump gets thrown out and doesn't even get recycled.

Using concealer as foundation !  

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Ugh, still this stupid Dior leaky situation! Still my favorite concealer at the moment but I remembered why I don’t like traveling with it! I had to scrounge to find an old napkin to be able to wipe this off and put back in my purse, I was panicking until I found one. Ugh, such a waste!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Oh no! What a mess! 😡

Good thing you found something to tidy it up with @sister13.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I remember you mentioning that before, @sister13 .  I'm sorry it happened again!  Send your pic to Dior.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@sister13 Oh I'd be so mad. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@sister13 ugh, that sucks! I've been looking at this concealer, glad to know about this issue!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Just when I posted The Beauty Victory Thread (a positive counterpart to the Beauty Pet Peeves thread) , I have a pet peeve.  My workplace just re-instituted surgical masks.  Meanwhile, I just bought a bunch of new-to-me lippies, and am unable to try them out at work.  I find that work is a great place to try out products.  I apply in my car natural light, get to test it out at different mirrors in different lighting.  Can get different opinions, and really see how long the color lasts.  I have crummy light at home, when I leave work it's dark, and don't wear it for very long when I'm testing at home.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I'm sorry to hear this, @greeneyedgirl107 !  I know what you mean.  I bought several new lipsticks; but until I returned to work, I didn't try them.  Wearing lipstick at home seems weird.  I only go in once a week, so it will take a while, but at least I get to wear mine.  I'm sorry you won't be able to wear yours! 😪

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@Titian06 good to know others are having similar challenges.   This is another reason I don't like the 30 day return policy. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@greeneyedgirl107 Ughhh boooo! I remember that feeling when masks were mandatory everywhere (the mandates and lockdowns lasted really long where I am - I believe some places started making the requirement optional in spring 2022), and I missed lipstick so much 😩 the car/work test is a great idea though!!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@cianni thanks for the sympathy!  

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Definitely when a product says it is for acne but breaks you out after the first use 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

When you drop something and it breaks in a way that makes it unusable. I dropped my cuticle oil and the glass dropper shattered inside. I gave it a shake and could hear the shards rattling around inside. 😩

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@JoSometimes That happened to me a month ago with my facial oil! So frustrating.
