Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I have a fun story! I ordered some makeup during a brand's sale a week ago. The package was traveling between Ohio and California. I just checked the tracking today, and... my package is now in Honolulu.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@ibblej  Wow, talk about overshooting the point of delivery! 🤣 Imagine what Honolulu center workers must've thought when they saw where your package is supposed to end up. I hope it arrives soon, safe and sound! 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Your package hit the layover jackpot, @ibblej! 😄

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@ibblej  It’s just taking a little pit stop to soak up some rays and it will be on its way to see you very soon! 😄

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@ibblej - I wish I had the travel itinerary of your order!  😁

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@Titian06   Wouldn’t that be nice!  

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Not only did I receive someone else’s order (with the correct packing slip for the palette I ordered) but they were only going to give them one sample!  That’s not nice!  This is the first time I’ve been shorted samples and it’s not even my order.  I’ve had replacement samples though.   Sigh, someone out there is receiving my palette when all they want is a pamper session.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Update- They let me keep the wrong parcel and told me they’d resend the correct one.  
But ahhhhhh!!!   plot twist- it’s not the correct order they resent.   I’ve been shipped a duplicate of another order I recently made😶.   I don’t know what to do at this point.  How did this happen?  We had the correct order number in the conversation. Everything seemed cut and dry.  Is the universe telling me not to get the ND Glam palette?  

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@heartsmyface ... No the universe is just sending you on a quest! 😅🤷🏽‍♀️

Heh @heartsmyface, I like your umbrage against the single...

Heh @heartsmyface, I like your umbrage against the single sample! It's possible they are an oddball like I am, sometimes there's only one sample that interests me, so I pick only one. Receiving an incorrect order always confuses me, I think it's happened just once. However, I once received the right items but an entirely different packing slip. Like, what happened here 🤔🤔

Re: Heh @heartsmyface, I like your umbrage against the single...

@danielledanielle   Oh I hadn’t considered that!  Good point!  The only time I’ve not bothered with samples is when it’s been all men’s fragrances. 

I’m convinced they're trying to tackle multiple boxes at once at the warehouse.  

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@heartsmyface Aw, and a coconut bath soak sounds soooo nice right now. I hope you and your unsuspecting package swap partner get your correct orders soon! I've only received someone else's order once (from ColourPop), and it included that person's packing slip; she lives overseas. I still hope she got my order by mistake and is enjoying all those lipsticks and single shadows! Especially since CP resent my order and let me keep the wrong one, which I'm sure they also did for her. 

 

I've lost count of how many times Sephora's withheld my samples. At least they substituted OOS samples a couple times. Sucks they didn't even do that with this person's order. 😞 Also, you're the second person I've seen today mention receiving someone else's Sephora order, and now I'm nervous about my most recent one. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@WinglessOne  ugh I placed 2 orders 3 days ago and a bit worried since they still haven't shipped and 3 items say they're out of stock!! 😩

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@WinglessOne   Oh no!  That was at least nice of Colorpop to let you keep the wrong order for your trouble! 
Eeeep two in one day!? That’s not a good sign.    Did they happen to receive an ND palette by any chance?  😜 fingers crossed that your order comes in perfect shape and with all the samples.  

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Oh no @heartsmyface! You just want your palette and your samples!! Hopefully you’ll get your order soon. 

I once got a pair of men’s jeans and my packing slip, which did not include a pair of men’s jeans. All I could think about was 🤔 someone’s going to be very surprised to get a box of high heels and lip gloss. 😂 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@itsfi   I can just see some mans wife opening his mail for him to find high heels that weren’t her size!  😂😅  scandal! 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

😂🤣😂 @heartsmyface!!  Hopefully the lip gloss suited her. 😆 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@itsfi   I’m not even really peeved.  Just entertained cause something HAPPENED!  Haha, and this is when I realize I need to get out more. 🤪 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

And where would / could you go?!! @heartsmyface, one day ...

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@itsfi  Absolutely nowhere!  We have a cougar warning in the neighbourhood on top of the air quality being at 268ppm with the forest fires raging down south.  Staying in where I can breathe and won’t get eaten.
