Foundation that oxidizes...*sigh*

This morning I FORGOT that my Clinique Beyond Perfecting foundation needs some mixing with a lighter foundation and lo and behold I look in the car mirror as I am going to work only to find myself looking like an Oompa Loompa and it is now too late to fix 🙂 Lesson learned, indeed!

The rear view mirror - love it and hate it all at the same time.

But it's the best for plucking eyebrows!  @AMK721

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@AMK721 It's like the honest friend that everyone needs but sometimes is not fun having around! I thought my foundation looked extra flawless in the bathroom mirror at 6am and at 8am it was 3 shades too orange XD

When a concealer sample is smaller than your pinky.

@veronika23 Pet peeve #3: when Sephora doesn't carry a product I think they should, so I have to buy it from another retailer and don't get the points!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Major pet peeve? When products in the tube look drastically different than applied.

 

Here's Colourpop Molly. I love this colour, but it looks nothing like it does in the tube.

 

It's a bright magenta-ey purple on my lips, and a soft dusty pinky-purple in the tube.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Ugh, that's the worst-especially when you're trying to match your lip to something!  @k617

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@k617  Even when you try making a face it still comes out nice.  You are photogenic. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@darkiceis Full disclosure! I took a few and removed the ones that look crosseyed LOL

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@k617 Colourpop is one of the worst offenders of this. I feel like a lot of their colors aren't consistent at all.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@k617 I'll make sure to avoid it! 

I had that exact problem with colourpop's 3 Way, thought I was going to get a beautiful metallic berry, ended up with a dark sort of metallic purple. It's still a nice color, but it's not at all what I wanted to order.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@Annalily11 I never noticed it with the first batch of lipsticks I ordered from Colourpop but noticed that most recently a lot of colours seem to have this issue!

 

Another really bad one is Stingraye Ultra matte lip...it looks like a beautiful medium berry purple in the tube but is DARK PURPLE on my lips.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I feel you on the lipstick thing @k617. Whenever that happens I'm like... is it my lip color changing the color? Is it the company's QA? What am I supposed to do now? Le sigh. Your expression in this photo is pretty awesome!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@k617, i have exact same problem with ABH Maui lipgloss.  I keep looking to make sure the tube is not switched for whatever reason.  It is advertised as soft coral pink but it is screaming baby pink to me 😉  Even the color on the box looks nothing liked the color from the tube ... sigh

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

That's bad @blackkitty2014 ! I don't wear glosses very much, most of the ones I have are pigmented glosses. that would drive me crazy.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Haha love that face K!  So different. Wow!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@veronika23 Oh I figured V! 😄

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@k617  sorry can't reply direct but yeah a different side of you! I really like pics like that! Beautiful as always!

 

And by so different I meant the product vs on your lips... just to be clear 🙂

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Hahaha thanks V! I contemplated not posting that photo, but I gotta show my "fun" side once in awhile, right?? 😉 @veronika23
