Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

When people pump or drip products right onto their face (Instagrammers I'm looking at you). Just stop!!


1. it is a waste of product

2. you are touching a dropper your face possibly contaminating product

3. it looks silly

4. its running down your face and that cant be good for your application process.



Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

This is a huge pet peeve for me, but when you have major mascara fall out! There was one mascara that I put on and it had me looking like a raccoon in two hours!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

When you accidentally apply non-waterproof mascara on a snowy day, and not one coworker gently tells you that you have smudges all the way to your brow bone 😑

@tastelikewater 😅😅😂


This reminds me one of the first times i started buying mascaras. I didnt really know much about makeup and one day i bought one that was not waterproof.


One day i went shopping and it was a very windy and rainy day so my little umbrella didnt do much.... I got on the bus to go to the mall and i was in the first seat in the bus and as people were getting in they were staring... 😂😂😂


I didnt know why, and all this time i was happy because i felt pretty with my makeup, so as i arrived at the mall i saw my reflection in a window and LOL, the mascara went down my face like if ive been crying, but it was because of the rain. I quickly went to the bathroom to fix my face lol.


Personally if i see someone with a makeup mistake that could easily be fixed, depending on the situation, i tell the person.


Situations where i say nothing is when theyre makeup is just bad, badly done or in bad taste or kinda doesnt work. I would like to say something, but i wouldnt want to hurt theyre feelings or anything, but sometimes its hard ....

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@tastelikewater At least someone told you lol. I've had people not tell me things like that 😐

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Poor thing said no one told her. 😞

That’s ok though because I was at Disney with my hubby one day, had to run to the restroom and as I was washing my hands I noticed my mascara all over. When I came out, I asked him why didn’t he tell me?! His answer? “I thought you wanted it to look like that.” Men. 😂

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I've had similar moments with my husband, @skfan70. Why are so many men like this? 🤣

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@skfan70 On more than one occasion, my last partner tried to smudge away my winged liner because he didn't know "it was supposed to look like that." 😂

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@skfan70 Haha oh jeez, reading comprehension is no longer one of my strong points. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@Samtian @skfan70 I have definitely had my man drop the ball on me like that!!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Not so much a peeve but a LAMENT. I know it's been awhile but I'm still sad about what happened with Bite Beauty. They were supposed to have lipsticks out last year, still waiting for them to appear. Sigh. Some pics from the glory days. Did you have a fave product you miss? If you could go back in time and shop anything from the pre-reformulation clean days, what would you buy now?


EDITED: Thank you so much for replying. So validating ha ha! I honestly feel better after reading all your posts 💗💗💗



Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@pocketvenus I miss their lipglosses.  I have a BITE lab near me and went September last year and was telling the mixologist about how I miss some of their stuff.  All she could tell me is that they have new products that came out.  They have a wall dedicated to their products you can buy there.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@SportyGirly125 I haven't thought about visiting the lab! Kind of funny to ask a brand to make a dupe of their own product 😂 But I seriously love their Persimmon and Cayenne bullets. RIP Flambe liquid lipstick!!!!  

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@SportyGirly125 you know when certain youtubers talks about product and then we find out theyre discontinued? 😥😤😥


Samantha Ravandhal said that the Bite glosses were awesome. I dont understand why they seem to discontinue theyre products.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@pocketvenus I feel your pain. I did an extensive inventory this year and was unable to pinpoint my new and unopened, original formula Smashed lip mask. This is an original I wish had remained.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@eshoe I think we could have an entire separate thread on the lip mask!! 🙂 If they're going to decommission it, couldn't they at least share the formula??

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@pocketvenus I have a mini of the new formula, it will be interesting to compare. So many great products are reformulated. I have to vow not to fall in love with anything again, it just sets me up for future disappointment!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@eshoe I bought the new formula since they nail the original texture pretty well or at least so close I couldn't tell a difference. So you think oh great! but at least for me, it didn't have the same effect. The original formula basically stopped my lips from going dry and peeling in the winter while the new one feels really nice but then by morning, the performance is not there.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Hmm @pocketvenus I haven’t tried the new formula yet, but I have a mini I plan to break out sometime this year. It’s been a challenging past couple of years for beauty favorites, as so many formulas of my favorites have changed. Basically, I’ve learned not to love anything🤷🏻‍♀️. The LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask Original  hasn’t changed, and after two years, refuses to let go...still half a jar remaining? 😂
