Topic: Make-up / Mirenesse Site error? charging old customers? Still No refund UPDATED

Still have no refund after contacting Mirenesse. Absolutely appaulling.
I was recently put in a situation that left me with no income for a number of weeks. $25 may not seem like alot but to a student it is. The person who posted it happened to them I can not longer find that post and they never posted and publicly addressed there was an issue which concerns me that others may have been charged and not know.

UPDATED
I had someone post my behalf since I cannot post after being blocked ages for asking for a reply to their email. They inboxed the person on my behalf not from Mirenesse but from another account asked for my name. They informed me they do no keep argumentative posts and all customer service must be done via email. I emailed them over a week ago. I still cannot believe they have not made a public announcement to ensure others have not been charged. I should have the right to use social media to give a company feedback and Mirenesse seems to be deleting any negative feedback regarding it and calling it argumentative.

That’s appalling. To me a company to be more ‘ethical’ if they respond to negative feedback. As well as shoes that they deal with it to the customers satisfaction. To me that indicates they value their customers and are prepared to deal with a problem, not fob you off. A fb page with only good comments from customers tends to make me highly suspicious.

Hope that makes sense, and I hope someone from mirenesse is reading this. Might be time to lodge a complaint thru the ACCC.

Topic: Talkback / Beautorium April 2014 Haul

Arrgh! Hate the waiting! I had won the Golden Ticket and so thought that would have recieved my order by now (am in Melbourne) but no luck as yet :( . Had also ordered on the hair care day no sign of that parcel either!! Postie stalking continues….

Don’t worry, I am also in Melbourne and ordered in the first week and I’m still waiting too. :P I checked with my local post offices to make sure they weren’t holding anything for me, nothing yet.

Topic: Talkback / Beautorium April 2014 Haul

Nice hauls everyone!

I’m still waiting. I ordered the Elkie hair styler. My points have been deduced, but I had problems at checkout. The $4.95 is still showing on my bank statement as ‘pending’ and BH haven’t received it as yet. Frustrating! Stupid banks! I’m so worried that I’m gonna miss out. I’ve emailed the BH team, and it’s being sorted. But I can’t wait and I WANT IT NOW DADDY!!!

Love the Easter manis from IndieAna & maydayismyday + the sparkles from imateapot (looks rather galaxy-like) & like Arty said, not bad for a rushed job MsSparkles!

Topic: Make-up / Makeup Shopping in New York!

I did and didn’t have any trouble (I had over 10 bottles). I think I stayed at the same hotel – the Marriott Marquis in Times Square. Lovely hotel and fabulous location, but you wouldn’t want to be scared of heights as you can see all around you in the glass elevators – 44 stories to the top, at high speed! It’s also very close to the Times Square Sephora (just a couple of minutes walk if that). I would recommend the Georgio Armani nail polishes (they have them at Sephora) – divine colours, and I haven’t seen them in Australia.

Be aware that they have a state sales tax in New York, so the prices of things are a little higher. If she is going to other states without sales tax, it could be best to get the make up there. If I’d realised I would have bought all my makeup at Sephora in Las Vegas, and not waited to New York. It probably doesn’t matter too much if you’re just purchasing a small amount though.

Topic: Make-up / Makeup Shopping in New York!

also does anyone know if it is okay to bring back nail polish in checked in baggage? not heaps, just a few bottles.

That’s something I’d like to know too, for when I go to NY later in the year. I’d say it’d be ok – my Mum’s goddaughter bought a couple of nail polishes when she was in the US last month & got them through just fine. I wouldn’t take my word for it though.

Topic: Talkback / BH Trial Team

Has anyone got the Garnier Olia colour yet? I hadn’t received anything and emailed Carli to ask if there would be an extension (April review is due today). Carli said we’d be contacted by Issy if it needs to be extended but I haven’t heard anything yet.

I haven’t gotten anything yet either, my regrowth is due and i’ve been holding off in case it arrives, but i’m going to have to go ahead and colour it tonight anyway. Bit concerned that the review is due and nothings arrived.

Lawliet – that is pure evil, I love it! They just don’t know where to look and what to do with their hands! Hehe! I was shopping with friends a year or so ago on holiday, added a pack of tampons to the basket one of the guys was carrying and that was enough to embarrass him silly!

Hahaha that’s too funny! Even better when they try to act cool about it like: “yeah just holding some tampons, no big deal”.
…I’m just worried that one day they’ll find a way to get back at us!

Topic: Make-up / Makeup Shopping in New York!

my friend is going to the US and offered to go makeup shopping when she’s in New York :D!

it would be amazing if anyone that has been to New York could recommend the shops to visit,
I think she is staying at the Mariott Marquis.

and also any recommendations for products I should ask her to get me?? I want to try some brands you can’t get in Australia.

also does anyone know if it is okay to bring back nail polish in checked in baggage? not heaps, just a few bottles.

thanks so much :)

Topic: Skincare / Whitening soap available is Australia

Yeah man, those things are so dodgy.
I saw a show once, about a Thai woman who used too many bleaching products on her face and now her skin is permanently scarred with white blotches everywhere. She’s constantly in pain and she can’t even go out in the sun because her skin is that sensitive.

Like Dee said, If you want them, Indian and Asian grocery stores have them. Also, they sell ‘brightening/whitening’ BB cream in The Face Shop

Topic: Skincare / Crazy, combination skin! Help!

Try stopping all products and washing your face with just water for a few days to give it a chance to settle itself. Then try using really sensitive skin care. If it does not correct itself see a doctor or even your GP.
