Re: MA Rudeness/Bad MAC experiences/Rants
Every time I go shopping for makeup, I go with a clean face with nothing on. I like the experience of trying things on before I buy it. I also wear loose, non-flattering clothes whenever I'm going shopping because they are comfortable and I like the convenience of being able to slip out of something quickly whenever I'm buying clothes.
I've only had three shopping experiences that were NOT completely horrific. The first time was at Macy's. I had this awesome asian girl that actually took more than 2 seconds to help me. She kept recommending products that she thought would go good with my skin tone. Not only did I buy every single one of them, but I've been hooked to this day.
The second time, I had a busy woman help me with my eye shadows. She matched me with some pretty eyeshadows and customized a palette for me...I wasn't a huge fan after a while, since she matched me for blue eyes. (Mine are green), but I again, bought everything and wore it.
The third time, I rushed into the store since it was packed, found a girl, asked if she could help me with something. She asked what, and I said I needed a Nymphette lipglass. She grabbed it for me and I asked if there was anything else I needed to do. She looked at me in shock...(almost like a, is my commission seriously going to be this easy?) and said nope. I paid and left.
I have always wanted to get my skin matched and still haven't to this day. Every time I go shopping, I get pushed to the side for the girls with makeup plastered on their face.
Not trying to be a bitch, but I've spent $1,300 at Maccosmetics.com just this week alone...I would think that's above what most people do, but I get pushed over almost every time just because I look like a hobo. That commission could be a MUA's, if they were willing to help me. My closest store is 1 1/2 hours away, and I'm honestly not willing to take the drive just to get ignored! (and pay 10% sales tax while I'm there.
