You know how pushy MA’s can be! Heck, you might even appreciate it since some of them work on commission but none the less it’s still rather annoying to say the least.
So today’s Musings is which counters or stores do you find the most aggressive, the most irritating, the most pushy….
Jump ahead for my reply!
Actually, my choice isn’t a cosmetic counter. In fact it doesn’t have anything at all to do with makeup. The place I avoid at all costs because the reps are annoying, irritating, and EXTREMELY, maxed out, over the top pushy is Bath and Body Works.
Going into Bath and Body Works in one word is a ridiculous experience. I haven’t set foot inside one in a long, long, long time since the sales reps are just awful, terrible, a real nightmare. They are so incredibly pushy it turns my stomach to even venture inside the store. I don’t even think they work on commission but they are somehow programmed robots to push, push, PUSH! They push so much that I think most people are pushed out the door without bothering to purchase because of the irritating way the reps are.
Try this, try that, have you seen this? How about that? Have one of these? This is $5! Here let me get you a cart, a basket, a bag, a tote, let me hose you down with our newest fragrance even though you’re sneezing all over the place.
Truly Bath and Body Works needs to tame it’s reps. Maybe if they do I’ll consider going back inside one of the stores. Until than I avoid it at all costs!
How about you?
What’s your least favorite store or counter to visit because the artists or reps are just too bloody pushy?

I had to go to CVS yesterday to hunt and peck through scary drugstore makeup to locate the Maybelline foundation I was babbling about yesterday. On my quest I couldn’t resist plopping some more Essence of Beauty Brushes in my cart.

I don’t normally like cheap brushes but I must say that these always impress. I ended up picking up the travel size kit and a two brush shadow duo set. I think both sets cost me $15 USD or so? Not too bad a price for seven brushes total. Hi cheap brushes the Muse likey you very much.
Although I wasn’t as pleased with the travel set as I was with the shadow duo set. The brushes seemed a bit more dense and harder than the normal Essence brushes I’ve picked up but none the less they were good aside from that. If you’re looking for some inexpensive, budget friendly brushes I’d totally recommend these as they are the best I’ve personally come across. I’m a MAC brush girl all the way but I can’t deny that the next best thing if I’m looking to save a buck or two would be snagging yourself some of these bad boys.
Check your local CVS for the selection.
Loves ’em and even slapping a Muse Approval on ’em for purchase!
