Wanna see something tragic?

Here's my haul from Auraline Beauty....COMPLETELY trashed during shipping....

I'm speechless:
















Isn't that so sad? I called their CS, but they NEVER pick up their phone, which I find SO IRRITATING! Also, I emailed them regarding the damaged items, but they insisted on seeing pics (which I don't mind, but it's annoying knowing that they are so suspicious of everything) in order to resend it the products. I emailed them the pics and is now waiting (impatiently) for their reply. I'm very disappointed in this experience overall because out of the 8 things I ordered, 4 came broken. I know it's the Fedex's fault, but their delayed customer service is making me furious. I know their main customers are the big wholesale companies, not individual buyers like me, but still, as long as I'm a customer I deserve better service.

On a happier note, I've been completely addicted to false lashes, and I think I'm getting better at putting them on. The trick is to use a pair to tweezers to put the lashes as close to your lashline as possible, fingers are just not enough. I also find that using natural looking lashes are a lot more demurring than the big, glamour ones. The ones I've been loving lately is Ardell's Luckies.

Pics are clickable:

I don't know if you can tell, but the lashes on my outer corner are flared outwards...and that tghe lashes on my left eye is f*cked.








close ups:






Cam-whore+goofy faces= my style:
I'm so sad...my order came damaged...


...like REALLY REALLY SAD!


WTF do you mean I have to send you pics?!


I also tried to put false lashes on the bottom lid... It wasn't very comfy...



Anyways, back to dealing w/ the Auraline ppl. You guys have a good one now! Ciao!

xoxo,
tao

Wow. That's the worst damaged makeup pic I've yet to see. Hope you get that all sorted out.

YES! LOVE falsies! They totally enhance your eyes. And I find that I can go with just falsies and liner alone. No need for dramatic blending and whatnot.

damn that sucks, half of the stuff you ordered came damaged! i hope they either refund u or send a new non damaged product.

falsies are awesome but i have yet to master putting it on. i always end up poking my eye and the lashes turn out all wonky.

Can't tell if your lashes are messed up! Love that picture of "really really sad", and "wtf!". Hahaha.

Very tragic indeed. I don't think I'd ever buy from them after seeing these pictures and what you wrote about their cs. Gosh, that's part of the reason y I hate ordering stuffs online!

The falsie look amazing on you. You should do more look with it!

Ethereal Prey said...

wow, they trashed it badly! I hope you get your money back!
I <3 false eyelashes, makes my life so much easier, since I can't put on eyeshadow to save my life, falsies make my eyes pop! :)

miemiemie said...

woooah...looked like someone threw the package and stepped on it and then sat on it..that's sad..you should give them the link to your blog! to show them what your saying is true,haha they should feel threatened! do they know who you are? huh? do they? do they? hehehe just kidding :)

oh by the way, i found this coverblend concealer at my cvs for $1.68! only 2 shades were available and they were dark..i wanted one in a lighter shade but the "beige" worked on my undereye circles..but on my skin, its too dark..oh well :)

miemiemie said...

what shade are you using? i think its fair,right? if they had it i could have gotten it and have it shipped to you...they only had the beige and the mahogany,i got the name right haha coz i searched it after posting about it :)

makemeup said...

Hey there, i also planned to go to auraline beauty and purchase some blush, but i hated that we have to purschase at least $100 to get stuffs. Wow i am sorry for the tragic! i cant believe it! i would cry if that happens to me...U should def. ask for a refund or and exchange!

Erica said...

omg that sucks! I haven't had anything sent to me that cracked so much! and their CS sucks from what I'm hearing from you. They should have tried better packaging too. Did they even protect the items properly for shipping?

haha I suck at fake lashes! I;m so lazy when it comes to cleaning them >.> and the fake ones I have are way to long, but I don't know how to trim them so w/e lol

Vanessa said...

Geezus! Sorry they have such shitty customer service, it seems like they don't care when they are at the booth at the convention shows, but geezus I hope they send you new ones!
