18 Most Terrifying Beauty Fails

With Halloween just around the corner, it got us thinking of all the truly terrifying things that happen to us beauty obsessives on a daily basis. Here are CODE’s 18 worst beauty nightmares:


1. Sneezing after you just applied your mascara... (but we’ve got your back, as CODE VLM is tearproof so it won’t budge with a sneeze ;-)

2. Spending forever getting glitter eyeshadow to look cute, only to have glitter all over your face within 10 minutes

3. Shattered palettes make us feel like our hearts just shattered #RIP



4. The words “out of stock”

5. Getting winged liner even. If you can do this first attempt, we salute you 🙌🏻

6. Noticing lipstick on your teeth when you’ve just been talking to a hottie in Starbucks #fail 🙈

7. Trying to apply false lashes to your other eye and having a tantrum when they just don’t go your way. ‘Go without me, I’m too stressed to enjoy myself now anyway’ (That’s why we created CODE FFL Forget Fake Lashes, you’re welcome) 👏🏻
