Monthly Misses: February 2024

It's been an interesting month with all the issues logging onto BIC.  And I bet there were some beauty misses, too.  Please share them here.

Re: Monthly Misses: February 2024

I never thought of that @lmaster.

Re: Monthly Misses: February 2024

@eshoe I mean really that's why I loved it, I'm still going to have to try it

Re: Monthly Misses: February 2024

First one

Spoiler
This is the worst candle I've had, it's terrible. It's just too phony vanilla frosting and too sweet, I'm going to try to light just one wick and see if it's doable, it made me nauseous.

Fenty Beauty by Rihanna Fenty Eau de Parfum Travel Spray 0.33 oz / 10 mL eau de parfum spray 

Spoiler
I know many like this, I personally can't stand it!!!! I'm using it as bathroom freshener to get rid of it

Re: Monthly Misses: February 2024

Love your honesty and throughness it’s truly amazing thanks for your input @lmaster  💕

Re: Monthly Misses: February 2024

Nothing but honesty always! 💕 @peculiarzmakeup 

Re: Monthly Misses: February 2024

@lmaster, confession.  I don't love the fragrance either. 😶.  I KNOW. I feel like a traitor, 😂. One of the primary notes, I hate, maybe the musk?  I get a lot of musk when I smell it.

 

What's been saving it for me? Layering. Maison Margiela REPLICA' Jazz Club Eau de Toilette # .Do a few air spritzes first, though

Re: Monthly Misses: February 2024

That's what I thought too, it was the musk, but idk because there are fragrances I like with musk, I almost wonder if it's the patchouli @danielledanielle 

Re: Monthly Misses: February 2024

That might be it @lmaster or it's the combination of the two, because when I layer it, it kind of negates the part I hate, but I can still smell the Fenty, but the pepper and vanilla in jazz club makes it a little less pungent.

Re: Monthly Misses: February 2024

I read the description of patchouli and musk is in it 🤣 @danielledanielle I'm definitely passing on anything with that from now on

Re: Monthly Misses: February 2024

My miss this month is OLEHENRIKSEN Pout Preserve Hydrating Peptide Lip Treatment Cocoa Crème . The scent is terrible! I absolutely love the strawberry and the citrus ones but the cocoa is bad.

Re: Monthly Misses: February 2024

@faeriegirl  the blood orange is delightful 

Re: Monthly Misses: February 2024

PHLUR Mango Mood Hair & Body Fragrance Mist 3 oz / 90 mL eau de parfum spray 

 

I have never returned something so quickly.  I think the SA thought I was crazy when I told her all I smelled was astringent and a hint of mango @greeneyedgirl107 .

Re: Monthly Misses: February 2024

@danielledanielle  I had a good experience at first it must’ve been cause of my allergies cause as soon as I smelled it It was overpowering. Sorry to hear your experience went similar. You win some and then there’s some that just are losses. Hope you find a better fragrance 🫶💕

Re: Monthly Misses: February 2024

@danielledanielle so quickly!  Love that in a weird way!

Re: Monthly Misses: February 2024

It was definitely a record @greeneyedgirl107 

Re: Monthly Misses: February 2024

@danielledanielle aww, what a bummer!  I know that the Phlur mists have been kinda hit-or-miss with people but that sucks that the mango one was a loser.

Re: Monthly Misses: February 2024

I tried Yves Saint Laurent YSL Loveshine Lip Oil Stick and they were all disappoints.  Too sheer, too fleshy.  I would have liked to have written reviews but the site was wonky. 

Re: Monthly Misses: February 2024

Sounds dissapointing hope you can find something that works better for you @greeneyedgirl107  🫶💕

Re: Monthly Misses: February 2024

@peculiarzmakeup thanks!  I see YSL has a new balm but I'm guessing it'll be just as sheer.
