Sweetie inspired this from another post.
What's been your experience with cosmetic salespersons? I practically run through the department store to avoid their comments as I run by them. I know they are there to sell, but some are really horrible.
I make a bee line for the MAC or Bobbi Brown counter where they are very laid back and friendly. Neither of those counters go in for the kill. They smile when you approach them. Maybe it's because those counters are always so busy.
Oh, and for some reason I'm really uncomfortable with male salesmen. I don't know why. One fairly recent experience was in a dept store where I was checking out Kevin Aucoin's line. The salesman offered to show me the eyebrow pencil. Of all the things I don't need, it's that. So okay, okay, go ahead and pencil me.
He did it very quickly and it felt like he was filling in some areas that are sparse. WELL. He hands me the hand mirror and dontcha know I looked like Faye Dunaway in Mommie Dearest. I looked at him like, you must be joking, dude. I said thank you and then let him see me grab some cream and a tissue that was well hidden, and took it all off. I would have been mortified if I had walked outside and didn't look at it before.
I also love the one's that used to comment on my adult acne on my chin (I don't have it anymore). They used to say that they had something that would clear it right up and I'd snap so fast and say What are you talking about? Or, I see a dermatologist!
I've noticed a lot of them operate with a negative attitude.
