RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

welcome back to the junk drawer of random beauty thoughts and musings. it has been nearly a year, so i think it is time for a rew RT thread ! 

 

when i'm doing my makeup in the morning, my dog sometimes throws a fit until i move his food bowl over to where i'm sitting. i'm certainly not the diva in our relationship.

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

In spirit of the Sephora x3 points fragrance event, I tried to add all the perfumes on my wishlist into my bag to see the price. Apparently you are only allowed 90 items in your bag. I managed to get 91. I wasn't able to add all the ones I wanted. But out of boredom here are the results: 91 items, $5,798. 17,394 points. Average cost per item $63ish. That would be nice. Can you image what a collection that would look like, a mix of travel size and full size bottles, heaven! Unfortunately that is a "little" above my budget. LOL. More than a little. But kinda cool to see. 

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

My first thought was how many $25 purchases can that be divided in to for maximum deluxe sample efficiency. Thwarted by the average price of 90 items being over twice the buy in! I would love to see that collection though.

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

Lol that is fun @Samtian I know what I'll be doing next time I am bored and have nothing else to do 😉

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

LOL I wonder what the shipping box/packaging will look like. I've never received a Sephora shipping box any bigger than the usual size.

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

Haha me either! That would be awesome!

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

"Apparently you are only allowed 90 items in your bag" I laughed way too hard at this.. 

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

😄 It yelled that at me. 

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

**I'm not 100% sure where to post this so it is posted here & in the Pet Peeves thread:

 

If you recently purchased from MUJI please double check the security of your credit/debit cards.  

 

I made a purchase a few days ago when another BTer first notified us that they were having a sale on some of the acrylic drawers.  While out this evening my card was denied.  I had to call my bank to verify recent purchases & they notified me that I recently purchased from a compromised merchant.  By process of elimination, and seeing a post a couple days ago from a different BTer that a MUJI purchase led to fraudulent charges on her card, I believe this resulted from purchasing through the MUJI website.

 

Although my bank account is setup to notify me of things like this immediately, it wasn't until I tried to shop in a physical store that this was brought to my attention so please check. I hope this helps someone!

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

@ElleElleG Ohhhh noooo:( Im sorry that happened. That's for the heads up. I'll keep an eye on my account too. 

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

Let's hope it doesn't get you too @StephaniLynn!

 

I'm also annoyed because I'm thinking I should've ordered 2 instead of 1.  Won't be risking that again, at least for a while 😫

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

The product reviews should have a "by VIB/Rouge" sort option. I tend to skip most others as they're untrusted spammers in my mind Smiley Very Happy

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

@somegirl123 You are actually able to label your BI status on your review. When you fill out the demographic info on the bottom half of the review page you can indicate it. 

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

@sabrinas

I'm not sure where I saw it but I have you to thank (& curse you) for bringing that Sugarpill palette to my attention.

It was my first makeup purchase of the year as well as first Sugarpill products ever.

 

So, thanks, I guess.Smiley Wink I'm blaming you and the friend that I'm gifting the lipstick to to assuage my shame.

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

I used to love decluttering beauty products, but stopped after discovering the trade thread. Many items aren't that sought after, but I keep them around just because.

 

Well, last weekend I decided to cut my own bangs.. I've now figured out how to use the hairspray I once thought I'd never touch! 

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

Today is such a good makeup day!  I've been trying to figure out the best way to use my sample cover fx custom enhancer drops because I've used them over foundation and it always looked so weird and patchy no matter what I did.  But today I put them on my skin before foundation, then blended it over and wow!  It looks beautiful!  This sample will last me forever, but now i am seriously eyeing those new shades...

Good idea! I have a ton and I've been meaning to force myself to use them more.
