2 days ago I set out to Ulta to get some Benefit products. Ulta was having a free gift giveaway (some travel sizes of the most popular benefit products) with any $35 purchase of benefit products. First thing, Ulta upped the price of Benefit’s Oxygen Wow Foundation (click here for my thoughts on Oxygen Wow), that was a bit disappointing but to kinda put a cherry on that crap cake they didn’t have any variety of colors, they just happen to have one bottle and it was in my color (awesome right?…wrong), the box was opened and there was foundation all over the inside. I was disappointed to say the least. This has happened to my more than once at this Ulta, I actually purchased a Tarte cream highlighter to find that it was opened and smudged with fingerprints all over it. Listen I am all for testing things out to see how they fair with your skin tone,complement your features, and how pigmented the colors are…but there are testers for that specific reason, why would you open a different one (NOT MARKED TESTER) up?! That drives me nuts. I also feel that at every end cap there should be disposable cotton balls, cue tips, mascara wands, lip brushes etc. so people aren’t contaminating the testers…this is pretty primitive information here people, we shouldn’t be shoving our fingers all over products, it spreads germs…gross. So I wound up getting nothing from Benefit. Even though I came out of the store with something that I didn’t initially intend on, it worked out because at an unrelated place and time I found a little gem that made this whole debacle well worth it (it’s so awesome that it will get its own blog/review).
I’ve been wanting to try St. Tropez products for quite some time now, so I am excited to see how it looks!
…Oh and to top the day off I went back to the car and my car didn’t start… o.O seriously…after countless attempts to ask people to jump me (including going back into Ulta after I had spent quite a bit of money mind you, asking if anyone could jump me there, to which “we don’t have anyone on break, sorry” was the response. Nice.) I also went into dick’s sporting goods, and the manager just straight up told me “No.” Then walked away…hah thanks. Finally 2 very kind men gave me a jump and we were on our way back home….
