Poked yourself in the eye with your eyeliner? Squeezed your lash curler a little too hard and caught part of your lid while doing so (Ouch!)? Got shampoo in your eye? We all have them. Those little beauty nightmares that either make us laugh out loud at what a klutz we are or scare us silly!
Jump ahead to hear one of my beauty nightmares and feel free to share your own!
Believe me I’m entirely too lethal when it comes to cosmetics. Poke myself in the eye? Check! Caught my lid with my lash curler? Double check! Got shampoo in my eye? Oh yes, Check! I can name any number of ways my life has been threatened by everyday cosmetics, skin care, and hair care!
One of my most recent nightmares comes to mind for this post, read ahead.
It started like any other night……I had gotten home and was in the process of my makeup removal regime. I began by removing my eye makeup and following up with my normal cleanser. Afterward I proceeded to mist with my favorite toner. Normally I’d wait until my face was dry and follow up with night cream and eye cream however something weird happened!
I couldn’t tell you what it was but something upset my vision terribly. I know it wasn’t my cleanser as I hadn’t used an oil to remove my makeup and I don’t think it was my eye makeup remover either which only left my toner. After misting I noticed that I had a case of scary foggy/cloudy eye vision. I swear I totally freak after using an oil to remove my makeup when this happens but luckily it goes away quickly. This time around it was sticking around and seemed to be getting worst ever second! Can you say freak out?
I got so scared I called up the company that made the toner and got v-mail! Great! I proceeded to google, half blinded, about the results of the product (this had NEVER happened in all my time using it) and got nothing back. I dunno if I didn’t get results because I was temporarily blinded or because my keyword skillz weren’t up to par with my vision gone wonky.
Obviously the best thing to do is rinse with cool water but hells that didn’t work. So I jump in a cold shower for 15 minutes splashing all kinds of frigid water on my face. Aside from developing a bad case of frost bite the cloudy vision was still there.
At this point I dunno if my imagination was running around buck wild or my vision truly was becoming worst. I’m serious this was a total freak out moment for me.
I decided my best course of action was to remain calm even though I was this close to just driving to the emergency room. After about two hours of flushing with cool water and laying in bed calmly aka freaking out my vision started returning to normal.
As funny as it sounds now I was totally scared for a sec there. Needless to say the toner was emptied down the drain and never purchased again.
How about you?
Any awesome beauty nightmares?
Why can’t I have a cosmetic line like that? Now you can…!
Jesse’s Girl cosmetics are sold in Duane Reade drugstores here in the NY area. Personally I’ve never seen them outside of Duane Reade but I’ll take your word for it if you have had the pleasure of seeing the line sold elsewhere.
Gratuity video of Rick Springfield looking all kinds of hot!
Duane Reade doesn’t carry a whole lot of the line, at least not in my experience, and only ever get a shadow set here and there but not much else.
The good news?
Buy Jesse’s Girl cosmetics online! They’ll ship it all over the world too!
Click it for some details, pictures, and some great prices on the line.
Best part about ordering from the site is the fact they bundle collections together. For example they have the Jesse’s Girl Color My World Eyeshadow for $17 as a set of four (normally these are $4.99 each) and also the Jesse’s Girl Startdust Powder Eye Shadow in a set of six for $24 (regular $4.49 each).
Of course if you’re not wanting to indulge in sets you can pick and choose single products as well. Much of the Jesse’s Girl line is quite good quality and pigmented for it’s inexpensive price tag.
The company offers a flat rate shipping in the US for $5.95 and flat worldwide shipping $8.95.
If you have a difficult time locating the line in your area this is a great way to indulge.

Ha and you thought that Sephora US had some stupid offerings! Check out Sephora France’s Shampooing Shampoo.
It’s a shampooing shampoo which basically means it’s a shampoo you can shampoo with. Cool right?
Um clearance rack anyone?
Jump for it!
Available in 14 scents this is a mild shampoo from Sephora France.
Ok, ok I admit that I’m eager to start shampooing my hair with shampoo that has scents like Chocolate Praline and Vanilla Creme Brulee. Maybe Sephora France does have the upper hand here.
Can’t have it, exclusive to Sephora France sadly.
No worries maybe the shampooing craze will catch on and Sephora US will start carrying these and we can all indulge when they hit the clearance rack for a buck.
What do you think about Sephora releasing shampoos?
Yay or Nay?
Hehe I like when Ulta dupes Bare Essentials. Kinda cracks me up. A few months ago we had a muse about the Ulta Smokey Eye Kit.
Taking it one step further we now have the Ulta All About the Eyes 7 Piece Mineral Eye Kit.
The kit includes four mini mineral shadows, mineral eye liner, an eyeshadow brush, and an eye liner brush for $17.50.
What? Ulta needs to make a buck too. Props for trying to dupe BE, we applaud your efforts Ulta.
I love a good deal lately. I dunno when or how but over the course of a year I’ve become Miss Cheap. Always looking for the best price, always looking to save cash…yeah well that never works but it’s the effort I put into trying that counts ok?!
Sephora Brand Mono EyeShadows aren’t so fabulous. I have one, maybe two hanging out in my makeup graveyard. Obviously Sephora has also realized what rubbish they are because damn they are giving them away for free! Did you see those new Sephora Brand Mono Eye Shadow Kits? It started out with one but now they got 50 different kits going on for brown, blue, green, hazel, light blue, and every other eye shade out there.
These kits include ten full size Sephora Mono Eye Shadows….yup, I suspect they’d rather not clearance them and just threw them in a kit.
Don’t be a victim, remind yourself the Muse has some that haven’t been used in a long, long time! Just because it’s cheap doesn’t mean we have to buy it.
Beauty lesson learned.
