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)

It's really annoying, and makes me refuse to buy from them. *coughwandercough*

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

OMG yes @Anewxa!!! Drives me nuts! Just say you work for them... seriously!

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

Funny, @Anewxa I got the same impression.

Spoiler
Perhaps brands realized BT is a treasure trove of honest feedback,ideas, etc...but still, affiliated posts should be transparent.  Don't they know how smart members here are?  (myself not included)

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

Second random thought:

 

How does this brand NOT have Tarte up their flamingo in a lawsuit over the name..

 

TARTE .. .TASTE... one letter difference.

 

The first two times I read it I thought it was a Tarte product.

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

I totally want that flamingo...

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

B...because they're different words? And tarte doesn't sell flamingos? And taste doesn't sell rainforests of the sea? And it's not even Tarte Beauty, it's just Tarte. And the branding and fonts are different. 

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

I see what you're saying....1 letter difference.

also I want that flamingo cause its cute and mini

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

It IS adorbs! @mella900

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

"tarte" and "Taste Beauty" don't really seem similar to me...

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

Can't say I've confused the two...The flamingo is pretty cute.  

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

oooh I should start some makeup brands.. I'll call them..

 

Shiseida

Anastasia Beverly Nill

Amore Pacifik

Bobby Browm

Chanelle

Two Faced

Ysed Saint Lauren

 

hmm.. I'll be a zillionaire!

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

I guess the difference with your examples is that 'taste' is an actual word, a pretty common one at that 😉 Having taste, being tasteful etc makes sense in a beauty/lifestyle context. 

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

Had lots of time to spare today, during my lunch(i.e. mental) break so obviously I went to Sephora and check out the merch 00000.JPG

 

I swatched a Clinique lippie and noticed two suspicious broads standing nearby with iPads.  As I walked away one of them stopped me & said that if I answered a 10-question survey about Clinique they would give me a $20 Sephora gift card.  So, like Jerry McGuire, I said "Show me the money!"  Then the manager stopped by and said it was legit. 

 

So, after "fake" contemplating their proposition...

...I was like "hit me!" 

 

Anyhow, it took about 8 minutes & the GC comes in the carrier with the pocket mirror.  Apparently they were hired by Clinique to survey "Clinique clients" and said they were going to be there all week.  I'm heavily considering going back in disguise tomorrow. 0.JPG

Let this be a lesson, kids!  Always talk to strangers.   

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

And suddenly you'll find me at the clinique section even though I never go there lol

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

Wow!  That is very cool!  ❤️❤️❤️  @ZombieMetroAnt

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)

That's awesome! I'm dropping by the store tomorrow for an event. Will have to linger by the Clinique counter.

Re: RANDOM THOUGHTS : BEAUTY (PART DEUX)
