Thinking my skin is good then putting foundation on and having dry spots and flakeys 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

when my rare beauty highlighter keeps breaking but its sooo good😭😭

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Oh no, @caelyn014! 😥 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

When my makeup stars pilling off😭

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Doing your morning skincare routine, applying a tinted sunscreen, swiping on lipstick—and then realizing you forgot to brush your teeth. 

 

At least I remembered while I was still home, before I put on my coat to head out. But having to redo some of the aforementioned steps is annoying, especially when I’m pressed for time. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@WinglessOne Ugh, I do that but with my allergy eye drops.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Putting on mascara at the end and then accidentally getting it somewhere else on your face 🙈

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Ikr!! It’s very annoying sometimes because then there’s just that weird spot on your face now with no makeup!!🫣🙈

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Trying to contact Ulta CS about how crummy their site has been, only to not have the form go through because their site is crummy!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

How about contact-- err um Sephora?? About price matching? And exchanging exact items from the sale? They took -almost 10 days to get to me? Then charge me full price to exchange? Hello??? What's that about 

 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Omg, literally when I was like about to use my highlighter I got BARELY ANY. And the tube still has SO much more product in it! I was using high beam liquid highlighter I think. I do have like a pallet of highlighter but it’s gold and looks weird on my skin. I just wish I could get the rest of the product out of the container! 🤪

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@KALIANNALINAIA  I highly encourage performing surgery with on ‘empty’ beauty products.  There is ALWAYS a large amount of product still in there and with the price per ounce of beauty products it is foolish not to get access to every drop you paid for. Travel makeup containers and lipgloss spatulas are very handy to own for this very reason.  I like to keep a few empty sample containers on hand for emptying the last of full sized products into.  
if you have a highlighter that’s too gold, scrape some powder off and mix it into a drop of foundation on the back of your hand.  Your foundation likely has some pink tones in it if gold highlighter doesn’t seamlessly blend into your skin, and it will neutralize the gold a little.  Then apply it.  It will make a more subtle glow that doesn’t look like a gold streak.  

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Maybe try to store it upside down? ❤️

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I had a Kate McLeod Unscented Stone Solid Body Moisturizer and I have no idea what happened to it. I don’t remember if I threw it out because I felt it was old or by accident but I can’t find it anywhere. Ugh, an expensive mistake.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Oh no, I hate this too! @makeitup305 I’m sure it will turn up! 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@makeitup305  Ugh, when you know you own something and it’s nowhere…. This is how many deep cleans begin.  Hmmm, did it get misfiled in with soaps?  Is it under a moisturizer bottle?  Those would be the two areas I’d check first.  

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@heartsmyface I’ve checked the whole area. it’s just a little corner of my bathroom between my sink and tub so idk where it could have gone if I didn’t toss it.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Ugh, I hate when that happens @makeitup305!  I did that with a Cle De Peau concealer. I have no idea where it went☹️

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@faeriegirl @heartsmyface I haven’t traveled with it or taken it anywhere so I wonder if I threw it away since it was just in a little wrap not a container 😞

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@faeriegirl  Ahhhhh, this drives me nuts!!! I have done the same thing to a Gucci lip liner!!  I have no clue where it is!  The temptation is there to replace it but I haven’t gone through EVERY pocket and purse yet so I feel like I will unnecessarily have two.  So for the time being I have none😭
