How do you stop the sales assistant annoying you at the beauty counter?
Every time I go to a beauty counter, the sales assistants starts pestering me and basically ordering me to buy certain products. How do I ask for what I want without them making me change my mind? Do I just go up and ask for what I want? Lol, it sounds like a silly question but sometimes there can be really annoying sales assistants.

Be blunt, but not rude. Say "I know what I'm looking for and I don't really need anything else, thank you". If she keeps hasseling you, ask to speak to the manager. That usually shuts them right up.

Just buy the product you asked for, that will give them the clue. Its okay if you ask them to recommend you a product, but if you ask them for a certain product like a certain kind of eyeliner, and they try to sell you some face powder and eyelash curlers that you don't want, you don't need to buy them...

If you know what you want it basically should not be a problem. Go up and tell them you want to purchase a certain product that you need/want. If you need any advice just ask, they're always happy to give advice as long as they know you are buying the product or if there is a chance in buying it. Most who work at... More
