I love minis and wish all the brands would make them! I have bought many minis from Benefit as it's a great way to try something then go on to buy the full size! I asked the Chanel lady once if they did a mini in one of their lipsticks!!!!!!!! BIG mistake, she said ''NO'' and looked at me like I was an abomination!!!!! I wish that attitude was rare, but it's not!  Smiley Sad It's sad when make up counter staff make you feel bad, which is why I hate going in store for make up and prefer to order online safe from my nest! Smiley Sad x

Agreed. Some counter staff are so snooty (YSL, Chanel & Estée Lauder) and others are just super approachable (Benefit, Lancome & Urban Decay).

I went to Estee Lauder counter to get a new one of the night repair I ran out of. She asked me what size and i said the 50ml, and she said you know that is 76 pounds and I was like yes. She said it as if I looked too poor to afford it (probably did to be fair as  fashion is not my thing). So yea know what you mean.

I had no idea there is one in the White Rose, I'll have to check it out! Smiley Happy

And yes minis are the best when you are not sure if it's worth it spending the money on something. Heart

@Bry that's Smiley Frustrated so wrong! Everyone should be treated with respect! It drives me mad when people judge you on the way you look/ dress/ talk etc. etc.  They make assumptions based on ill conceived judgements! Smiley Sad x

ps. the best counter service I have ever received was from Benefit in House of Fraser. That young girl was awesome and I rang the store up the next day to tell them how amazing she was! I think they were pretty shocked by their reaction as people are generally way quicker to criticise than praise. It was THAT girl that would make me buy from that store. Staff and the way they treat you has the power to make or break a store for me personally.

@Amanda-C Funny you say that I had one of my best experiences at House of Fraser's Estee Lauder counter Smiley Very Happy. There was a girl who was so nice and helpful with everything! And I did the same, contacted customer service to say how happy I was.

I have seen a huge improvement in the counter staff at Leicester Debenehams, I used to get so wound up by some of them. Unfriendly, unapproachable and OMG if you asked for samples they looked at you like you had two heads. I wrote emails complaining about how this whole experiance made me feel. I LOVE cosmetics and skincare, I am interested in cosmetics and skincare, I love to browse and try and touch and feel and learn more, I ask questions and read up, I read and write reviews to share my experiences but you then go to a counter and all that interest and excitement gets sucked out of you by just 1 person who decided to be unhelpful and unfriendly. Its like they see me in there weekly and go "ohh here she is again" yes I am because I love cosmetics. I ask for samples because if I like it I intend to buy it and brands should have enough faith in their products to offer samples and the counter staff should offer them and get rid of this "she just wants freebies" mindset. Anyway, well done Debenhams Leicester as my experiences there have been so much more enjoyable over the last year. Especially the girls on Mac and Estee Lauder and Bobbi Brown, they chat to you like a friend would. x

Oh this happens in preston all the time!counter staff look at you as you're too poor to be bothered with,and i spend quite a  bit in debenhams especially run up to christmas on gifts! It happens a lot to my son,he's 20,and it annoys him,he goes in shops etc and they say the prices as though he can't afford it when he's probably  more in bank than the assistant has as he's very saver savvy! In a jewellers  were its open plan in the mall they refused to let him have a look at a £200 watch,and asked him to leave !( probably as there were a couple of other- older- 

& posher- customers there already) But he genuinely  wanted to buy himself one,as a christmas treat to himself& needed a new watch!! If I'd  been with him i would have complained but that would only show him up i guess! Its terrible how people are treated in shops- one assistant in a small general store when i asked her if the slow printing receipt was mine from cash machine she grabbed it and said " not unless youve  got  **** (amount) thinking i could not possibly have- so i said yes i  do have actually and snatched it out of her hand!! And YES,it was mine! (I wouldn't have minded so much except that it wasn't a posh shop,just like a corner shop,and she was not a posh salesperson either!
