Does anybody else find this as annoying as I do?
I just spent a hugely inflated $21.95 AU on a Revlon Lip Butter (which already has made me frustrated) and then I take it home to find this.
I understand why they need the security tags, I truly do. It's not fair when people steal and we have to pay full price.
But it's also not fair for us ladies who are paying full price to take our lovely new product home and upon removing the security tag, find this.
Disgusting, sticky residue from the tag and sticky tape.
The first time I got the Lip Butters was from a Priceline in Melbourne CBD, and they did not have any of these security tags, and I was happy with all of my products. So why does my local Priceline have to do this to me?
Another example below of an Innoxa lipstick I have. (Sadly, this sticker is from Innoxa themselves, and I've found it really difficult to remove!)
So what do you think about this ladies? I think they need a better system when it comes to cosmetics, maybe something along the lines of the Korean store where everything is on a screen and you press what you want, then it's waiting for you at the counter. Except they still have testers.
Anyone have any handy tips for getting rid of the residue aside from sitting there for hours on end picking it off with my nails, or running it under steaming hot water as a shop attendant suggested to me. (I'm not going to submerge a lipstick or palette under hot water as it will damage the item in question - it's not always just on the lid!)
