After the Posh Affair, I don't really have a lot of faith in companies that offer "high end" products in subscription boxes. I would have to see a pretty hefty pricetag on this to believe that they were sending out exactly what they were saying. If it's twenty dollars or less, and they're claiming to be sending out Chanel, I start getting a little bit suspicious. I'm not saying that they aren't legitimate, but it seems like an odd service to be trying to sell.
After all, does it really make sense that a company is going to be able to obtain standardized, "discount" batches of genuine Chanel or Dior? I know Deborah Lippmann sends out some samples (see: Glossybox), but the other two do not strike me as the kind of companies that need to target the kinds of consumers who purchase subscription boxes to "sell" their product. So I suspect that a service like this is not, for the most part, going to be receiving many samples from the manufacturer. In fact, I have never seen a sample of Chanel nail polish. Someone tell me if I am just oblivious and there are genuine ones out there... I want some!
So from where are the products being obtained? If they are genuine, which I hope they are, then they must be bought either wholesale or second-hand. If they are wholesale, what kind of distributor is spreading them? Even if the intentions of a company like Lacquerous are good, their suppliers' may not be. If they are second-hand, how are they going to be obtaining enough to maintain a subscription service? And even if they are genuine, there is no way to find cheap Chanel or Dior from a current or upcoming. It simply does not exist.
So what is going to be arriving in these boxes? I am curious to see, frankly, but I cannot say that I am holding my breath.
