ok ladies, i know i saw a few of you post that you wanted to try the new color club fall line especially the color editorial

i was intrigued by the color also and i happened to be at tj maxx looking for the ddf cleanser and found it in a 2 pack with a purplish/navy color (looks darker than in the picture) for $3.99!!!!!!!

 

i normally dont care for color club i dont like the quality... but this one seems really good!!! 2 days (with orly bonder basecoat) and no chips (and usually cc polish chips the first day on me even with orly bonder) it also isnt as streaky or goopy as some of the other colors i have tried

 

these pics do not do it justice (crappy cell phone camera)

and i have not tried the bluish/purple one yet

(and there is no name on the package or bottle)

Did you find the cleanser? I could only find the kind for sensitive skin. :( My TJ maxx had tons of nail polish.... color club, orly, opi, essie.... I can't wear nail polish anymore because of work and school, so I didn't buy any.

post #275 of 2328

Ugh. I was in TJ Maxx yesterday and they had Korres/Bliss gift sets, Body Shop products, and Tokyo Milk perfumes. Why do I have to be broke? icon_cry.gif

Haha, I saw the same stuff at my TJ Maxx.  However, I'm weak and bought the Korres Pomegranate set and a Tokyo Milk solid perfume.  It took all my strength to not buy the Color Club sets too.

I just bought a $3.99 2 pack of the Fall Collection and one of the Winter Collection at TJ Maxx! The Fall Collection had Muse-ical (creamy gray) and Style Icon (dark blood red). I really liked the red which I'm still wearing now three days later with minimal chipping. I bought a ton of other stuff there because I saw a bunch of brands I recognized and wanted to try. They had the Karuna face masks for just $12 which was pretty cool. Posted pictures of everything I got on my blog, but here's a photo of a 2 day old manicure with Style Icon. It's impressive for me since I work at a computer and typing chips the tips of my nails quickly.

It looks like I was charged for November's box yesterday. Has anyone else been charged for November yet?
 

post #281 of 2328

Yep.  I think they always charge on the 1st.

post #282 of 2328

Hmm, did anyone else not get credited for giving feedback on the BB partnership with Madewell? I think it was supposed to be added to our accounts by the 31st. :/

Nope. I'm waiting on that too. We should've been credited by Halloween but then Sandy screwed up everything.

Alright ladies...I know they sent out an e-mail about what is going to happen with Novembers Shipping.  I do know the area in the city where BB has there office is still completely out of power....then New jersey is suffering from days with out power.  Not to sure about the location of there Warehouse...either way...it will be a longer wait for sure.

Just today I got a reply about a missing sample they were supposed to replace.  (They ran out - so sorry I was misinformed - here have some points.  Which I'm fine with.)  In the email, Sonia said, "PLEASE NOTE: Due to Hurricane Sandy, the women's November Birchbox production has been significantly delayed. Our warehouse is now open and production is back underway but running at lower volumes due to short staffing. Shipments will begin leaving on 11/7 and continue through mid-month. Unfortunately, many boxes will ship after our promised deadline of the 10th of the month. We apologize and thank you in advance for your patience."

I'm going to try and be more open minded with BB this month , thanks to Sandy. There's a lot of people without and we should take a moment and remember that before commencing complaints with our first world BB issues this month.

I am totally fine with the late shipping this month. I will not complain. But I find it interesting they still "promise" the idea of ship date of the 10th of each month. The last 2 months mine shipped somewhere around the 14th. I know it's been discussed that some boxes sit in the truck for a few days. I just wish they wouldn't say that they ship by the 10th every month.

Yep. Me too. There are still complaints and remarks about how they get there was a hurricane but that doesn't excuse blah blah blah and they want their box now. I definitely don't want to be one of those people. I also won't complain if I end up getting a duplicate item, or if the boxes aren't on par with previous months. What's a damn foil packet compared to losing your home, being out of work, and every other tragedy that's occurred because of Hurricane Sucky?

Hurricane Sucky...that is ingenious..! Yes, well despite the delays, hopefully we all luck out this month.

Since I knew my Birchboxes would be delayed this month due to Sandy, I had to get my beauty fix from Sephora online this morning.  One of the weekly specials is an "it-kit" that has 9 mini products and is free with a 25.00 purchase.   There are 3 kits to choose from.  I chose #2  Best in Classic kit.  It includes a Nars Velvet Gloss lip pencil in New Lover, Lancome Hypnose mascara, Lancome eye makeup remover, Makeup Forever HD Microfinish powder, Sephora Collection primer, Murad Clarifying cleanser, Stila In The Light eyeshadow card, a couple of perfume samples, and a cosmetics bag.

 

There are 2 other kits as well.  All 3 look awesome, and I had a hard time choosing, but I never tried a Nars product so I chose the Classic.

Ok, I just had to see this post right????  I caved too, what can I say :)  Thanks for mentioning it, I got the classic it kit too.

post #293 of 2328

I LOVEEEEEE Lancome Hypnose Mascara.. it's the first mascara I've ever tried that made me think "WOW, this does something!  This does a lot!"  lol Sad, but true.  It really made my lashes bold and pretty.. it does start to clump after a lot of uses though so I would recommend wiping the brush or warming the mascara or something along those lines to help that problem. 

 

Can I ask what code you guys used for that Sephora promo?  

post #294 of 2328

The code is ITKIT, and works with a $25 purchase. It was hard to choose, but I ended up getting #3. Hope this promo lasts a while...I may be making a few more purchases in the next couple months and want to try the other kits as well! :P

post #295 of 2328

Gracias!

I just placed 2 more orders with Sephora so I could get the other 2 It-kits.  I bought some bath stuff I dont really need, but will need at some point, and an eyeshadow palette because you know, one can never have enough eyeshadow!

Hahaha! I also made two orders @ Sephora.  Picked up a Pantone Shades of Nature set that was clearanced down to $17 (one can NEVER EVER EVER have enough eyeshadow ;P ), some more tokyomilk lip balms, and the tarte standout set that was $25. Got ITKIT's 2 (nars, lancomex2 and murad cleanser) & 3 (lancome, urban decay and tarte).Though 1 was the only bag I really didn't care for. However, I'm glad to see I'm not the only one who made multiple orders to get them laughs.gif

post #298 of 2328

Damn you all!!!!  This is way too tempting on a lazy Saturday morning, especially considering I'm running low on eye makeup remover and I love love LOVE my current NARS gloss pencil.  Excuse to finally spring for some Tweezerman's?  I think so.

post #299 of 2328

I saw that sale last night! I have to wait to Thursday tho. Just paid bills. Please post pics of the kits!

post #300 of 2328

I have the olive green and it's my "go to" eyeliner for day time use!  I do use the Bombshell in black that I received in My Glam Bags last month, though, at night.
