The word is spelled "matte", not matt. {#emotions_dlg.unsure}

Tinkrbl44, your comma should go inside your closing quote. Just sayin'. WinkSmile

....... "matte, " ....... no, that's not correct. {#emotions_dlg.thumbdown}

Excuse me?

My point was that if you're going to nitpick language skills, you had better be perfect yourself. In other words, unless you know the person enjoys being criticized publicly, don't point out language errors, especially on a message board. It's just bad form.

And commas always go before closing quotes. Trust me. Wink

So, for YOU to criticize is okay, but when I do it, it's bad form?

Can you spell h y p o c r i t e ?? {#emotions_dlg.crying}

Yes, because of course that was my intent all along. I just couldn't stand seeing that misplaced comma. {#emotions_dlg.rolleyes}

You know exactly why I posted what I posted. Maybe next time you'll think twice before feeling the need to correct someone's spelling or grammar or whatever when you knew exactly what she meant.

Some people, even maybe this OP, may not mind someone marching in and pointing out such an error, but many don't enjoy being shamed or embarrassed in that way.

What a JOKE this is ....... you just couldn't stand what you perceived to be an error, so if you deem it justified to add a correction, it's okay because you approve of the correction ....... yet what anyone else does is wrong ? {#emotions_dlg.laugh}

Do you even understand the stupidity of that? ... LOL !!!!

Re: I Didn't know Laura Had Cream Blush Sticks?And They Are Matt!!

I suggest, Tinkerbl44, that if you think I enjoy correcting others on their language skills or that I just can't stand seeing an error, you should be able to find such posts in my history.

You won't, because I don't. I taught English grammar and other such skills to adults for many, many years and loved my profession. I learned early on that correcting people, other than of course on test material or when necessary in class, is counterproductive on every level.

I have NEVER taken it upon myself to point out a poster's language error. The ONLY times I have ever corrected anyone here is when that person had the audacity to come into a thread and make a point of correcting someone's error without any preface noting that they are doing so to be helpful.

My feeling is that once you set yourself up in that way, you deserve the same treatment -- you know, as in "People in glass houses..."

If it pleases you to spin this your way, by all means, that's fine.

Good grief, I have no interest whatsoever in researching your post history.

I just find it amusing that you actually believe your holier than thou justification. {#emotions_dlg.laugh}

Enough said.

Re: I Didn't know Laura Had Cream Blush Sticks?And They Are Matt!!

What's sort of sad but in a way funny is that in trying to figure out your reaction here, Tinkerbl44, which up until now has mystified me, I reread this thread to see where I went wrong. And I found it. My first reply to you in Post #4 was too subtle. You read it literally as a criticism and didn't even understand why I posted it.

Oh, well. You win some; you lose some. I take responsibility and will be more direct in the future if I ever choose to respond to someone who thinks it's okay to embarrass or shame someone for a goof that was so minor in terms of our understanding what she meant and that, for all we know, was just a glitch.

If you feel the need to respond, by all means, go for it. I will not return to this thread because I can see it's futile to engage you and my head has banged against this wall one too many times now. Have a good night.

Annabelle--I was wondering about these and how they apply. I always love the idea of a cream blush, but sometimes they sit on top of my skin. How do they apply?? TIA.Smiley Happy

Actually, where you went wrong was in playing "stern school teacher", going from thread to thread correcting everyone's behavior.

Has QVC recently hired you as the official Message Board Police? If so, please provide a copy of their announcement, because I think a few of us must have missed it.

Quite by accident, I noticed your posts on the "what if your mate dislikes you wearing makeup" thread (or something to that effect) , pointing out someone else's "incorrect" behavior and burst out laughing. I couldn't help myself.

For someone who doesn't like others pointing out errors, you sure manage to do a lot of it yourself.

How sad ... and hypocritical. {#emotions_dlg.unsure}

I was torn between the petal and the rose color. I love the petal, but Laura said that color's for fair and light skin. I normally use medium foundation, so I went with the rose. I'm glad to see good reviews with this too. Can't wait to try it out. Just hope it has staying power like Laura said it does.

Let's get back to the important stuff: make up. I am very fair and I love the Rose. Ordered a second one on Saturday. The first time, I had Petal in the cart, then changed back to Rose. LOVE it. I use JM argan oil then LG's champagne spackle. Let this sink in while I do my eyes. I use a light gel foundation (Prescriptives online) Virtual Skin Super Natural Real Camillia, then just dot the blush straight from the stick and blend with fingers. Outer forehead too (to the hairline) and along the top of the nose. This looks better than 2 clown circles. Non latex wedges work also for blending. Voila. Then I lightly dust LG's color optics C/C finishing powder with an IT fluffy brush. No touch ups needed. Very pleased. I am in my early 60's for reference. Kiss
