Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Reformulating products!  NYX Doll Eye just got a new brush, and I suspect the formula changed even though they sd it didn't.  Now I have to go on a scavenger hunt for a new mascara.


And don't get me started on products that were discontinued.  Just had to buy a Bare Minerals blush on eBay, and am almost out of my last tube of Sephora Collection Lip Attitude in Mauve Scandal.  I e-mailed Sephora about it, and they were like, "T.S."

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

We interrupt your browsing to bring you my biggest pet peeve... Jars and Pots! Why do manufacturers and brands use them when they are unhygienic and sensitive ingredients, such as in high end skin care, get exposed to the air and degrade much more quickly. Pumps and dropper bottles are the way to go...even a squeeze tube if it's a thick product! and as for bottles that come without a pump - gah! (ELDW I'm talking about you) 




thsnks for letting me blow that off my chest, regular programming now resumes.

LaserShip -_- I hate LaserShip. I love to take advantage of amazon same day delivery but LaserShip sucks. I ordered yesterday and it was supposed to be delivered last night. Ha ha ha...nope. I spoke to amazon cs and they rectified the situation somewhat. Tracking hasn't changed, nothing. I actually still want the products but can't really order again because LaserShip will deliver it...or lose it. I'm pretty annoyed and feel like I'll have to let my amazon membership go since I just can't deal with LaserShip anymore. So many of the products I want to order is same day shipping now. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

 I've been trying to place an order with Zoeva for almost a week now!


I really want the Matte Spectrum palette and a couple other things.  So last week I tried to order and use paypal and it didn't work.  Like paypal told me payment was not working, but the Zoeva website said the order was complete and I got a confirmation and everything. 


I obviously had to contact customer service which took 2 business days to answer.  And even now they only answer 1 time per day.  I get an email in the morning when I wake up, I respond immediately and then don't get an answer until the next morning!  It's so frustrating when I'm sitting here wondering what's going on!


They are very nice, don't get me wrong- just slow.  They said they will cancel my order so I can try to place the order directly through their site and not paypal.  Except apparently I can't do that because it says my "financial institution decline payment."  


This is the last time I try to order from another country!  This is stressing me out!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Peppermint in lipsticks! Why?! Oh my, I just tried my Tarte lippie from the Tarte mini bday gift set... There's bloody peppermint in it! My lips hate peppermint! I hope they will forgive me, and my lip dermatitis will not be triggered. I took it off as soon as I felt it tingling and burning, which was almost instantly. I knew right away there must be peppermint in it. Checked the ingredient list and, of course, there it was. I sure did not expect that. Peppermint in lipsticks?! I am totally bummed. And freaked out. Do I need to start checking all lipstick for peppermint now?! At least with lip balms I know to always check the ingredients. But... lipsticks?! Wow...


Ok. Rant over.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I bought a NEST candle for $13.75 with sale price + discount on b-glowing a couple weeks ago. I just noticed they charged me $43.75 for it. WTH how does that even happen?? I had to double check it wasn't something else since I've been shopping so much but that was the only order I placed with them.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

So I had a rollerball go mouldy on me?! Is that normal lol. I've never seen this before. I mean it's been in my purse and I apply when I want just like any other rollerball. It's a mini by Nest. Talk about G-R-O-S-S!!


Aaaand I had some glitter from the ABH glow kits I own fall onto my neck area and cause a bit of irritation (might be the Ultimate glow kit or the new NG one). Also my arm was a tad irritated after swatches. Anyone else have this problem. This was from the new ABH x NG kit. Yes ladies there is some shimmer in it. I'm even peeved at my filming equipment lol. I filmed a video yesterday and my tripod is busted and I tried to upload but it failed. What a bummer!!!!!!!! Gaaaaaaa -pulls hair- OH WAIT there isn't much hair to pull since I chopped it all off....wonder what to do with my stress now hahahahaha Smiley Tongue

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Anyone else finding that every time they do a search to see if an item is in stores, Sephora inside JCP doesn't show up anymore? I don't know if it's just been my luck (I've tried about 5-6 products now for brands I KNOW are stocked at the JCP locations), but for everything I searched, NO SiJCP's were listed to have it in stock!  I'm wondering if Sephora removed them from the search feature? 


EDIT: It's just been my luck lol I decided to search a nars concealer which I know is always in stock and a JCP showed up, so nvm!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Has anyone else with Flash shipping found it to be kinda...not so flashy lately? I know that the two day countdown starts when the item is actually shipped but lately my shipping is still three days instead of two. I had an order confirm as shipped at 8:30 am on Tuesday Feb. 28. So two-day shipping should give it an arrival of date of today, Thursday, March 2. But instead it's scheduled for tomorrow. 


I know it's not the end of the world but I've made some pretty big orders lately and this *is* supposed to be a Rouge perk. I double-checked my account and I'm enrolled in Flash until Jan 1, 2018. 


Just gripin'.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Well, my order from 2/27 wasn't making ANY progress (besides saying "IN PROGRESS"), so I called the Rouge hotline for the first time ever.


He couldn't really give me any information but said he would put a request through to the distribution center.


An hour later, I get a shipping notification!


Happy that it's "moving" now, but I don't know why I had to call to make this happen.. haven't had this issue before at all..

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

You know the new format is a disaster when your customers can't even shop. 

Such new graphics. No able to shop. Much Sephora wow.


Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

When ebates has a 3x the cash back event but Sephora is not included Smiley Sad 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

The promo says I can pick two but once I'm in there I'm only allowed one.   Not cool. 



Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I was waiting for an Ulta beauty break and one of my items sold out. Sigh, I feel like this always happens and I should learn but I keep testing my luck.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Buying a product on sale only for it to end up on Hautelook for 1/3 the price one week later.

So basically my pet peeve is that I'm not clairvoyant. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Having packages at the post office and not being allowed to drive. Gimmie my packages. Gimmie, gimmie, gimmie🤗

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

 Also seems silly to have to follow your own thread in order to get notifications of your responses.... obviously you would want to!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

when some  one does their makeup exactly the same way with no variation - layer (noticeable layer )of matte foundation looking like a wall paint, thick black eye liner (hello raccoon eyes) and jelled to the head hair...


Honey boo-boo sweetey time to change it up- especially if you are planning to be a doctor - I personally would not want to see you...

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

My orders also are taking 3-4 days. According to the site, if you order on a Monday am it will arrive by Wednesday end of day. My products are coming Thursday or Friday. When I called I was told it can take 24-48 hours to process. What? How can they manage a 2 day shipping promise?

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Hm the site still says "And" for me (at least on the special offers pages)


Thanks everyone!




Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Current peeves:

1. no samples or not the samples you thought you were getting (I'm still happy for samples though)

2. when checking out that list of promo codes aren't readily available then (at least in the app - they're under mobile offers

3. that codes like "twolips" can't actually be used twice to get one of each product


All first world complaints though ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
