I cringed at the butter on the face part >.<

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I barely watch them anymore. I just can't trust them when everything is PR. Even though they claim to be unbiased, it's ALWAYS ALWAYS different when you actually pay for something with your hard-earned money.  I also don't like companies sending YouTubers on fancy trips and have fancy launching parties to hype up their new products. At the end of the day, they write them off as operation costs and us, as consumers, are paying for all of the cr*ps!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Agreed, even Youtubers who I believe are legit trying not to be biased. People just don't tend to judge as harshly when they aren't feeling that sting in their pocket and have an incentive to return if it's not amazing. And the Two Faced Sweet Peach collection party; they must have put something in the champagne,  so many youtubers who were critical of the palette before are now talking about it as if it's made of unicorn dust.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Oh I can't stand any of that... and don't watch/follower any youtuber. I just happened to see that challenge on my feed... just adds to the whole pile of ____ I think it is Smiley Very Happy  and yeah I am getting fed up with companies and their PR trips/parties... so much bs.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I used to get sucked into buying products because so and so recommended it but now I don't watch those videos. I know that a lot of you tubers get kickbacks or are biased in some way. I've seen recommendations on brushes that are absolute garbage and shed, yet YouTube says it's great

 

Its to trust some of the big name youtubers!

 

most recently, tarte got some Beauty bloggers on a trip to bora bora.... I mean if you take me on a trip to bora bora I will absolutely rave and snapchat your products on the trip

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I know this has been addressed before and probably a few times: but I dislike like how people start ranting under the review section for products on Sephora. I just want to read a review and not hate-filled ranting -_- 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Me to all those "reviewers"

 

5Gs

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Yes! Also, people giving bad reviews for products they haven't used because they find an ingredient or the company unethical. 

 

Also sort of related, bad reviews of recipes where the person had switched out many ingredients, thus creating a totally unrelated dish. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Yes, I HATE useless reviews! I just read a review on Ulta for a hair mask, which I use and like, which made me lol so hard. I'll post a copy & paste under the spoiler for reference. It's perfectly fine if you don't want to use it based on the ingredients, but you can't start a review saying that you are returning it without trying and end the review of a product with "...[isn't] the money", "all bad and don't work" and "make a real mess of your hair" if you haven't tried it lol.

 

Spoiler
Returning without trying. List of ingredients doesn't appeal to me. Lemon peels, sugar maple, tree oil and fruit extracts. Don't care to put food in my hair. Most of the hair products today contain food products but this one is worst. Hair products today aren't worth the money. All bad and don't work. Make a real mess of you hair.

In the same vein, I hate when people review the fit of clothing without mentioning their measurements, even if they list their height and weight. Measurement of are in discerning the fit of a garment.

 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

hahaha oh my that's a funny review!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Ha, I wonder if there might be some correlation between food trends and beauty trends. I've read about how the big food manufacturers can't get Millennials to buy as much processed foods these days because we're all eating more natural and organic foods. Now there are so many natural, organic beauty products on the market, maybe since many have become so wary of putting excessive chemicals in and on their bodies?

 

I could go into a lengthy discussion about the effects of industrialization, but I'll stop here. I do collect vintage and antique cookbooks, and it's so interesting how prevalent processed foods were in the '70s-'80s (tomato aspic...gross). I bring this up because I wonder if the bad review in the above post was a generational thing.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Lol at the review in the spoiler! How silly. Some people.....-_-

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Yes! That and all the reviews about how people can't wait to get their product... not helpful...

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I hate this too, big pet peeve!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@jesscheems, I agree with you! I want to read reviews based on the actual performance of the product, not it being out of stock or something else!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@angel7594 Yes like the new Too Faced White chocolate palette. People are already complaining -smh-

 

So speaking of that palette the pans are .02 oz if we go based on the matte palette available on the direct site. I think a total weight of 6 grams. Even the ABH Mario palette has super tiny pans. I hope this isn't some new trend with companies!! Even if I go through an eyeshadow or not it sucks to pay a premium for very tiny pans!!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Exactly, @jesscheems! The drama over the white chocolate chip palette in the reviews is crazy this morning. And it's not even out of stock!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

OMG how can there be 21 pages of reviews for a product that nobody has even used?

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I don't understand why people are so worked up over this! There are some pretty dramatic people that have posted "reviews" complaining that the item is OOS, and the people complaining about their complaining using reviews aren't helping either (hypocrite much?).

 

Is there something magical about this palette that I missed? Is it infused with magical unicorn tears or mermaid dandruff??

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

OMG @k617 "mermaid dandruff"!!!! 😂😂😂  Too funny!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Yes- why is it out of stock already- it's not like it hasn't been hyped as the best thing since sliced bread. Never heard of this palette before and suddenly it's the must have palette of the year. It sold out because it was hyped so much.

 

I do have a peeve with it though. I want to know why the palette isn't fully open so that the top three shades can be clearly seen. You can see them a little better in the next picture .
