Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

OMG @NotCrocker I'm the same as @txcatx, my face also suddenly got itchy thinking about all that glitter!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

OMG @NotCrocker @heartsmyface I'm imagining the horror of all the glitter that would get into my contacts if I were to try a face full of glitter like that!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@heartsmyface I legit have no clue, but what I do know is that no matter how long ago this is from, she is STILL finding glitter bits EVERYWHERE.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@Tamara76@veronika23@NotCrocker@txcatx@fairlywell  How in the actual expletive does she not have glitter in her eyes? Mine would probably be red and inflamed by the end of applying that!  

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Hey now @ElleElleG it's a look! @Tamara76 I bet you'd look lovely in all-glitter. 

 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

😂😂😂 you two! @Tamara76 @RGbrown

 

That mess went everywhere! Thank goodness I always do my eyeshadow before my face 😡😡 Annnnnnnd the location where I dipped my brush created a huge hole.... I've had this palette for ~6 years and was no where near pan now there is a gaping hole. If I remember I'll add a photo later. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@ElleElleG

I'm with @Tamara76 on this one. I don't see the problem? Glitter on your face AND the counter means two things got sparkly with only one outlay of energy. Sounds like a win-win to me 😜

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@ElleElleG Clearly you are putting more effort into that relationship. It might be time or the talk.

@darkiceis you're right!   I've given myself until the end of the year to use up what I like, depot anything worth hanging on to, and chucking whatever is left. YDK just might get left behind before then! 

RE: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Everyone has their own favorite I get that but I cannot deal with Ulta anymore. The customer service sucks it's not just a one time thing either it happens each time I go there. Last time I went with my mom and sister as they were shopping I was talking to an employee asking her about a full coverage foundation for oily skin I also told her that I couldn't afford anything too expensive at the time and she only showed me two foundations that were $40 I repeated a couple more times that I couldn't afford that and she literally said nothing. Thanks to my mom I found a great foundation by Clinique.

Re: RE: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Aw that really sucks. It's all about management and what they decide is acceptable behavior unfortunately. I actually feel this way about a lot a makeup stores 😞

I'm really annoyed that Estee Lauder has hiked up Double Wear's price $4 in the last year. The last time I bought it was April of this year for 39.50, and this was after they already hiked the price up by 1.50 😠. I use it for it's staying power ( I usually sheer out the coverage a bit) since I live in a very hot environment. I'm going to check out the new Bare Minerals long wear foundation, and hope it can be a good replacement. I doubt it though. It's just rubbing me wrong on how they raised the price so much in such a short time. They released a new lighter weight version of double wear this month that I was interested in at first, but their color selection is awful, and it has chemical sunscreen in it, which I am allergic to. When they released this foundation is when the sudden price hike happened. Both are priced $42 now.

Re: I'm really annoyed that Estee Lauder has hiked up Double...

I noticed that today @candyrivera!  They released the new version of the Double Wear recently which is also that price.  A bit frustrating but I'm not too surprised considering comparable foundations are of the same price.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I knew I never should have even opened that sample of Sisley moisturizer. Now I have fallen in love with a $200+ lotion. I just need to keep telling myself #itsnotworthit #itsnotworthit.

Yes!!!!! The samples that end up being absolutely incredible, but ridiculously expensive!!!! I have a lengthy list of products that range from $130 shampoo to $200 moisturizer that I lust after. It's such a struggle when they work so much better than anything else. 😭

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I did that with the Omorovicza Thermal Cleanser... my justification is that it's cheaper in the UK. 😄

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@heartsmyface  just remember that if you do ever get it, it's cheaper in the UK and even a better deal around the holidays with their holiday sets. You can also get cashback.  Sorry I'm no help 😄

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Lol, I've promised myself that if I can get through the ridiculous number of cleansers I already own I can splurge on a luxe one.  Gotta earn that one! @veronika23. Chances are I will give in on the many many options before me before then. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I did this with Clinique Smart serum.  It's in my loves list though it's above my personal price cap for skincare items. The only way it's getting purchased is if I'm online shopping while tipsy one night.  @snoflakefaerie

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Gah I hate when I do this!!  Perhaps they'll release some kind of holiday set that makes a purchase more worth it?

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Ha, I'm not even going to let myself go down that road! It would surely be a disaster, but a luxurious disaster.
