Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I have a confession: as much as I love beauty and skincare I’m not the best at keeping up with using products I should use daily or weekly. Sometimes I’m just too beat from a 12 hr shift on my feet all day at work and I immediately crash into bed without a care. I try to maintain regularity in my routine but there’s always the occasional day where I just don’t have it in me.

 

But that being said I HATE when I DO finally get to have a consistent stretch of taking proper care of my skin and I get a breakout, even if it’s just one teeny tiny spot. Like, of all times? I would expect this from going to sleep after sweating for 12 hours in a hot kitchen without washing my face, but the moment I start taking care of my skin properly on a daily basis, THAT’S when the blemishes pop up??? 😑

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@HunterKathleen  I agree with you girl, love using the products but I am just dead after my split shifts. I feel like when we do have time and that break out happens, its because we are taking all the crap out of our skin, and its detoxing in a sense.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Totally agree with you! Being consistent with your beauty routine isn't easy, especially when your routine is thorough and long (hello, 12 step korean skincare). However, one of my goals this year is to be consistent with my skincare routine and workout routine (another routine I can't keep up! lol). <333

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

So i was soo excited to hoard 3 more Pat McGrath 6pan eyeshadow palettes half price last month .... only to discover the metallics dont play well on my lids ... They're all cease badly after 3-4 hrs .... i dont remember this experience with her big palettes ... a little of fall out .. sure but not ceasing ... Sigh!!!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@blackkitty2014 PMG also creases on me with UD primer potion, but works fine with the TF shadow insurance. Then I have other shadows that crease with the TF and work with the UD. I think some eyeshadow formulas just work better with certain primers?

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Thx you for letting me know @SurprisedLemur Heart

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Do you use an eyeshadow primer? I have always had major creasing issues and have tried UD Primer Potion, P. Louise, and endless other products I can't remember at the moment. The only thing that has come SOMEWHAT close to fixing my issues (I stress somewhat because I still have days where my eyeshadow creases) is the NARS Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base. Even then, I still use a light layer of NYX Glitter Primer on top for metallic and glitter areas. @blackkitty2014 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@SchylarR I use my UD eyeshadow primer as usual.   I need to play with my PMG big palettes again to see if i have the same issue.  I dont recall this issue when i was using the 2 blue shades in Decadence Smiley Wink  Thx for the tips on Nars and NYX.  Will look into them Smiley Wink

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@blackkitty2014  Two other eye primer suggestions for you, to help these palettes work:

 

SMASHBOX - 24 Hour Photo Finish Shadow Primer

 

MILK MAKEUP - Hydro Grip Primer

 

I used to love UD eyeshadow primer, but I noticed that it stopped working well with either my lids or my eyeshadows, or both. However, the two eyeshadow primers above saved the day 😊

 

 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Thx you @PinkEvergreen . I’ll look into it. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

No problem girly!!! 😊Definitely let me know if you find a solution!!! @blackkitty2014 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@blackkitty2014  Creasing is a constant battle with my hooded eyes, so I feel your pain. The primer I use to stop the worst offenders also makes them harder to blend. So I end up having to choose which downside I’d rather deal with. Sorry the PMGs aren’t working for you. ☹️ 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@WinglessOne it's so weird ... i have all 5 big PMG palettes and i dont remember any ceasing.  I'm not big on the card board cover on the 6 pan so i only got 2 before the sale.  The oh-so-good prices hooked me in. I dont think i have issue with the mattes and the satins but the metallics .. they cease so bad.  It could be that my lids/skin changing.  I need play with PMG big palettes again to see if it my skin/lids or something different in the 6-pan palettes. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I mean, at least all 5 eyeshadows are intact—no cracks or breaks—so I shouldn’t be too peeved, right? 🙄 

 

B2CEFE28-E58E-445B-A628-50F9DD46AF0D.jpegWhat a lovely palette—wait, what’s wrong with the lid?17188FF0-2006-43DE-A671-50347547866B.jpegBroken hinge.4E210DE9-B71E-42B1-BBEC-A24F569D3FF0.jpegThe broken-off piece was inside the box.

That’s a Natasha Denona 5 palette. It’s number 12, a palette I’ve owned before but traded with a friend for a different one (one of the shadows was completely uncooperative for me). I recently decided to give it another chance, so I bought a new one. I wish I could’ve bought it in-store because Sephora warehouses still haven’t improved the way they pack palettes for shipping. This is the second broken ND palette I’ve received; the first one had a broken shadow. This one has a broken lid hinge. The lid does close but one end doesn’t sit in its hinge, so the lid’s not really secure. 

 

Now I have to decide if it’s broken enough to make me try replacing it. I wish my local ND-stocked Sephora had this palette. That’s where I bought Sunrise, because I wasn’t about to let a warehouse ship that one to me. 😡

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@WinglessOne  Ugh, that drives me nuts. It's almost worst when it's the packaging rather than the shadows because it makes me feel like I'm being unreasonable in wanting to return it, but it's clearly broken! I always hold my breath when I order eyeshadow palettes, but luckily, I've had great luck with the warehouses that pack my order. I used the rouge reward on the sunrise palette and the whole order came in 3 separate layers of paper (one layer ordered items, another for the rewards/gwp, and then one more layer with just the samples). The palette itself came in its own cardboard sleeve!

That's a gorgeous palette though...I second the Beautylish suggestion, they're orders are always impeccably packed!

 

 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@MissPuff @WinglessOne My Sunrise palette arrived like that too - in fact I think all of my ND palettes have been packaged in extra cardboard. Must be a warehouse thing... I think most of mine come out of SLC.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@alexasteph  That's where mine came out of! SLC, they know what's up! 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@MissPuff  😯 I think I’ve NEVER received a Sephora package (aside from gratis) packed like that! Apparently the warehouse that supplies my orders hasn’t gotten the memo on how to pad items. Y’all with well padded boxes are lucky! 

 

And yeah, I love how Beautylish packs their orders, complete with ribbon/twine around items. ❤️ 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@WinglessOne You might have better luck getting the bigger ones shipped than the small ones. I've ordered 3 different ND palettes online and they've all come in a cardboard sleeve and well protected. Bummer about your palette. Have you thought about picking it up from Beautylish instead? You might miss out on points but at least it's in one piece?

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@makeitup305  I almost bought this one from Beautylish. Not sure what stopped me... I think I was going to use my latest $100 rouge reward on this order, then changed my mind (I still have the reward). Hmm. 

 

I’ve been too afraid of breakage to order more large eyeshadow palettes from Sephora; if I can’t buy them at a local Sephora, I’ll likely order them from elsewhere. I’m glad other folks have gotten well padded palettes, though! 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Oh no! It seems like it's always something with palettes shipping @WinglessOne  🙁
