I happily registered myself and 3 other friends for the Shu Uemura party, hoping to learn some makeup skills and also to find out more about the various products available. And yet it had to become the most fatal mistake that I had ever made. I’ve been to a few similar events organised by Shu Uemura at their other outlets. But sadly, none of them is as disappointing as today.
Firstly, no one was around to attend to me when my friends and I arrived. It seems like everyone is busy with their own , only they know things. The event was suppose to start at 6pm. But despite waiting till 6.20pm, nobody bothers to update me on what is happening. I have to go ask the staff myself.
And when the party finally starts at 6.35pm, there were only about 6 persons around- My 3 friends and myself, and also 2 other people whom I believed to be friends or regular customer of the staff . Because the staffs were too busy talking with them to realise my needs.
Despite standing in front, I had difficulty taking a closer look at the demonstration. Why? Because the other staffs stood there like “Raffles’ blocking my view. After a while, I simply give up and sit down on the chair just in front of their counter. I was like: ‘eh! so who is the audience right now? your own staff or those who had rsvp for the party like me?’.
The whole demonstration of both day and night makeup took about 25mins to finish on both models. And after that, the staffs simply went back to doing their own business again. And nobody bothers to check with us if we were interested in trying out any of the various products available.
And the so called refreshment is only cream puff and some diluted sugary drinks.
I really don’t know what to say.
