Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Went to the aesthetician today, and after out appointment she applied sunscreen and a tinted moisturizer - then failed to blend the tinted moisturizer (which does NOT match my skin tone) into any part of my face/neck. 

I went home and fixed it as best I could before work. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Hi @Zpsid91,


That is the worst! I am happy to hear you had time to fix it before work! 



RE: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

When your mascara doesn’t come off for days even though you used every kind of eye make up remover and your dark circles are even darker lol Or you wake up looking like a drunken lady of the night or super hot with a smoky eye that looks hot as hell. Hit or miss!’ 💋

Banila Co Clean it Zero is one of my holy Grail products, and it works so well on stubborn eye makeup!

Re: RE: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@scumDFL what mascara? And what removers did you try?

@GreenEyedGirl107, Yay for the package, booo for not getting a little something extra 🤨 I HATE when I forget the GWP and I know everyone has done it, when they get in a hurry and place an order.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

After moving to LA I have noticed that fedex delivery around here sucks. They have a scheduled delivery date when it's first shipped and then if the package moves along faster and gets to the facility near my house quicker than anticipated they just hold it there until the original scheduled delivery date before sending it out for delivery. 


I placed an order from cult beauty and it got to the fedex near me very quickly. Unfortunately it arrived there last wednesday and the scheduled delivery date says next Wednesday 10/9?? They're literally just gonna let it sit in the office an hour away from me for over a week because it's such a hardship for them to deliver promptly when they receive it. .

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

So this tragedy happened when I hurriedly went into my closet to find a purse. I didn’t notice this BB cream had fallen to the floor and stepped lightly on it, causing it to burst🤦🏼‍♀️



This is The Face Shop Intensive Glow Maxi BB cream. It’s not the first time this tube has given me problems; I had trouble getting any product out the first time I used it and somehow a lot of it got on my shirt that time. I think it’s an issue with their tube packaging... most tubes don’t give to a bit of pressure. Anyways, I’m not a fan of the product itself, since I find that it separates on my face very easily so I’m not as mad that it happened to this one. But still have to deal with getting it out of the carpet 😫

@Guessgal, this is the 2nd time I've come back to this post. I felt so bad for you, that I just couldn't fathom having to clean this up. I so hope it came out of your carpet!

Thanks for your genuine concern, ladies @Luvstravel @eshoe @Ispend2much6 

I used Lysol on it, then switched to Resolve. They helped lighten it a bit, but it still needs some work :/

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Oh my @Guessgal 😭😱😩 that is absolutely awful, I am so very sorry!!!!

Folex. If it can get accidentally ground in dark chocolate from an ice cream bar out of a white carpet with no mark to suggest it had ever been there, it should get bb cream out too. Completely saturate the spot and then blot and spray. Repeat until it's gone. I've even gotten sick kitty "accidents" out of a cream colored rug with this stuff.

Re: Folex. If it can get accidentally ground in dark chocolat...

Oh wow, thank you so much for the recommendation @waterbaby1981 ! Sounds like a miracle product; I'll look into where these are sold!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@Guessgal   Ugh, so sad to see that.  I hope you are able to easily clean your carpet.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@Guessgal  😮 I’m glad the product itself isn’t much of a waste for you, but hopefully it won’t be too hard to clean it out of your carpet. 


I had a product with similar tube issues, but now I don’t recall what it was... might’ve been a skincare product. I just remember having to fight the tube to get product out, and from that point it always squirted way too much product out—to the point where I only squeezed the tube while holding it over my bathtub for easy cleanup. Smiley Very Happy 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@WinglessOne  What a smart idea to hold it over the bathtub!! Your response made me laugh in spite of our similar situations Smiley Happy

RE: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

When people have obviously cakes foundation and don’t seem to care. Like, ughhhhh. You look like you’re wearing a face mask!!! I don’t care how much you hate your skin or how uneven it is, there are options and solutions for you that don’t make you look like a mannequin!!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

You get a free sample card of foundation blisters of a foundation you've been wanting to try.  Of the two lightest shades, one is too dark, and the other is the wrong shade, but you figure, "How bad can it be?" and wear it out in public anyway.  After all, my face was still darker than my inner arm, so it should be fine.  And I added a slightly darker finishing powder for good measure.


When I returned home, this was the ONLY time my husband has ever said to me, "Your base, or whatever you call it, makes you look really bad.  You look very washed out."  And yes, he has picked up a few makeup terms along the way, and correctly identified the problem. lol  Not only that, but my powder and highlighter spread visible chunks of glitter all over my cheeks.


At least now I knew why people at the doctor's office seemed to be studying my face when we spoke.  I thought maybe they had noticed the accidental patches of burgundy hair around my forehead that resulted from me trying a new, warmer shade of hair coloring.
