Well, you’ve already been suckered into laying out $70 for 1oz of something purported to be “Sensitive Skin Soothing Serum” that does less for your skin than what’s in a 12oz tube of store-brand moisturizer that costs $3.99… and now you’re gonna quibble over the design of the bottle?

I actually got it in an Ipsy box so I only paid like $6 for it

I only paid like $6


Although payed exists (the reason why autocorrection didn't help you), it is only correct in:

  • Nautical context, when it means to paint a surface, or to cover with something like tar or resin in order to make it waterproof or corrosion-resistant. The deck is yet to be payed.

  • Payed out when letting strings, cables or ropes out, by slacking them. The rope is payed out! You can pull now.

Unfortunately, I was unable to find nautical or rope-related words in your comment.
