Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

My biggest pet peeve with makeup is when people try to put bronzer on me at a makeup counter. I know it’s very popular, but I’m pale, and I LIKE being pale. I have gray hair, and dress in cool tones of gray, burgundy, forest green, and black. Bronze just doesn’t look right on me. Same with gold jewelry. I gotta have silver or nothing.


Otherwise, it’s probably how I can seem to properly apply mascara to my lash roots without getting a little bit in my eyes. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Me, looking for the Brow Whiz I just ordered (and received!!). Can't find it.  Surely I put it someplace easy to find in the 3 days I've had it because I need to use it. CAN'T. FIND.IT.


Now I fear I've thrown it out.  Surely I didn't. Surely not. 




Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@WinglessOne @gonerogue Look at what I spotted when I went to put my moisturizer away...


...after I already bought a second one. LoL.15632624037476216121419738200376.jpgLookie what we have here. I spot a familiar logo...


Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@l8totheparty  Heehee, I do this too often, I've actually done it with the same ABH brow wiz! The worst time was when I misplaced my passport, needed it for a visa for a trip to brazil, had to expedite a brand new one ($$$), then promptly found my old passport just ONE DAY after receiving my new one in the mail. awesome. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@l8totheparty  yay! Now you have 2 brand new ones to last you a while! 😉

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

No kidding, eh?! Always happens after you order another one.  @gonerogue 


8 months for you....old purse? Corner of closet? You may find it when you are moving lol.  

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@l8totheparty  yeah it was on the same order I ordered some secret Santa gifts and I remember telling myself to put it away before it got lost since it was so small and that was the last time I saw it. The thing is, i just moved in March and you would think I would have found it as I was packing and cleaning my house but I never did find it 🤷🏼‍♀️

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Oh no!  I bet it's safe and sound tucked inside something. 🤷🏼‍♀️ @gonerogue 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@l8totheparty I have a feeling I left it in the Sephora box and then took out the contents for the Xmas exchange and dumped the box with the brush inside.... 😩

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@l8totheparty  That was me and my brand new bottle of DDG eye serum I’d just purchased last week. Nearly tore my bathroom apart looking for it. Found it the next morning while putting sunglasses in my tote bag. It was in my tote bag. I NEVER TOOK IT OUT OF MY BAG AFTER I BROUGHT IT HOME. And it’s in an orange box, so it’s not exactly easy to look inside a big black tote bag and not see it for 2 days—unless you’re me, I guess. Smiley Very Happy 


Even if you repurchased your Brow Whiz, I hope you find the original one you bought. Then you’ll have a backup. Smiley Happy 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I juuuuuuuust found it. Lol. Already repurchased earlier this evening, of course. 


Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@l8totheparty  HATE when that happens! Same thing happened to me with a ABH brow brush. I remember getting it but I don't remember putting it away and I haven't seen it since. It's been about 8 months now so I'm going to just order a new one already and give it up Smiley Sad

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

The worst! @gonerogue 

It's on sale on Amazon,  so I'll get it there. Again. Sigh. 


Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

*Walks into M.A.C., wow I like that Liquid Lipstick ON THE GIANT FLOATING LIPS OF THE POSTER ADVERTISING the Matte Liquid Lipstick, I wonder which one it is, i’ll Just go ask* 


—> Oh that’s not a liquid lipstick shade we carry, or even a lipstick shade we carry. 


* I’m staring at her like she’s speaking a foreign language 

—> It’s like computer generated, not real. 




—-> Yeah it’s not a colour we sell. It’s computer generated, for the ad. 


* It’s computer generated for the LIQUID LIPSTICK AD? 



RE: Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

This exact thing happened to me.

@GG84, I'm 🤣 while reading this. The makeup world wants...

@GG84, I'm 🤣 while reading this. The makeup world wants so much of our 💰 and we want to spend it on an item we can physically 👀 and to find out that it's not even real!!!!!! 😡

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

*head-desk*  MAC is known for offering a large variety of shades for all of their cosmetic products.  Which marketing exec thought it would be a great idea to use a computer-generated color instead of a real shade in production?  


You should have taken a photo of the poster and posted it here -- we would have had fun trying to dupe it.  Smiley Wink

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

That's the perfect gif for this situation!  Whyyyyy would they not use one of their own colours??? At least use an existing colour. @GG84 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@GG84  The humorously worst part of this: lipstick is the product MAC was originally best known for. Lipstick put them on the map. They continue to have many lines/finishes/shades of lipsticks. If ANYone can create a shade of tangible lipstick instead of tease folks with an imaginary digital shade, it’s MAC. So... 🤯 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@GG84  That makes NO sense whatsoever! Advertising a lip shade that doesn't exist in a makeup store....okay? Oh the bright side, I learned something new today so thanks for sharing Smiley Happy

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

omg @GG84 Why would they taunt you with a lipstick that doesn't exist in their advertisement!?
