Thanks for nothing, Birchbox. Did you even READ my beauty profile? Definitely thinking of switching to Look Bag or Ipsy. :(

 

Yeah I think ipsy might be right for you, because honestly, how in the world is BB supposed to know that you already have rose perfume and just bought a luminizer/highlighter?

If you are looking for a GREAT mostly skin care sub, I highly reco NewBeauty Test Tube. It's amazing!!!!! I have been subscribed to it for over 4 years and it rarely disappoints. It's a quarterly service not monthly, but they typically give you so much skin care and larger size "samples" you need a month or two to really test out the products! So monthly would be overkill!  It's $29.95 plus shipping...and well worth it! This quarters test tube is valued at around $250 dollars!!!! It's an awesome deal.

 

This link will show you what is in the current quarters tube.

http://testtube.newbeauty.com/feedback/

In this tube there are THREE full sized products!!!!! A full-size Olay Pro X wrinkle serum (value $43.99)

A full sized Yonka product (an amazing brand) I got the Night Cream (valued at $62)

A full size CellCeuticals product (another fab higher end brand) I got the eye serum (value around $72)

The rest are deluxe samples, a MorrocanOil hair mask (1.7oz) IT cosmetics under eye concealer, Dr Brandt dark circle cream and Kneipp bath salts.

 

If you do decide you want to sign up for it, call customer service first and make sure you will get this quarters tube (with the products listed above) and not the new one they are shipping mid January. I believe they are still shipping this tube though ( I recently ordered another one to give to a friend)

Each month is differently obviously and I think this month is exceptionally exceptional! Especially if you are looking to try new and great brands of skin care. Enjoy! And let me know how you make out!

I'm glad I got the Oscar Blandi spray though.  :)  The rest of it....nah.

I am obsessed with that lip gloss - I absolutely love it.  I got one with points and was considering buying another one.  But yeah, I'm a little surprised it's sold out, too.

Oscar Blondi volumizing spray

Lengthening mascara

Stella Cadente Miss Me perfume 

 

 

I would be especially interested in trading for the Stila luminizer, etoile nail polish, and Miracle Skin Vanishing cream.

Also, I would be willing to trade the Mox Lip Butter and ModelCo Gloss, I just bought the Naked Princess gloss and don't need any more lip products right now.

Is anyone else's account not updating? 

post #968 of 2328

I'm getting box 20. Could be better, could be worse. And still no tracking info update.

 

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

I don't want the mascara, so if anyone wants to trade that for the Oscar Blandi texturizing spray or the cupcake bath bomb, let me know.

post #969 of 2328

Well my trackinf thru my account is still not working but at least I get to see what I have coming.Not too sure how I feel about it all right now, we will see when it gets here lol.

I've heard other people speak highly of this.  Might have to sign up!  Though I do like a little monthly surprise...I can probably just stick with ipsy and Sample Society for my monthly surprise and do the NBTT for a quarterly.  Thanks for the tip! :)

Excited about my box 3 this month. Got box 3 last month too, is that just a coincidence or have they attached a specific box number to specific kinds of profiles now, you think?

I've been a subscriber for a while and been very, very happy with my boxes thus far, so I guess it was just a matter of time before I had a hiccup. 

 

This month I got box 15, which is actually a nice box - not very many things in it, but the types of products are things I love and use, so happy there. But when I opened it, I noticed that they gave me a dupe of one item, and omitted another. Also puzzling is that the lid is missing off of one of the dupes, so it's not really usable as-is. So, I guess I should contact them to let them know, I feel weird complaining since it is two full-sized products but it's just strange and obviously a mistake. Meh. 

post #976 of 2328

Yeah that happened to me too and it doesn't show what I'm getting either.

That's happening to me too. My box just shows the October box. I'm worried....

post #978 of 2328

I'm getting Box 24 in one account and it seems meh - I hope I get a diff colored nail polish because I already have this one.

My second account hasn't updated and nor does it have a tracking #. I really hope it has the chocolate - cuz I swear that is the thing I'm most excited about lol.

post #979 of 2328
Has anybody noticed a funky smell from the boxes lately? My box was smashed last month and smelled bad... but the contents were fine. This month the box is okay but that funky smell is there again.
post #980 of 2328

I got box 3 last month and I'm getting box 3 again too! Weird now that you point that out. Hmmm...

My box was delivered today and got box 9 which seems the majority of us are getting.

I love it...the mascara is actually surprisingly good!

I tried it out and it gave me a lot of length not a lot of volume but it gave me length without being clumpy.

And it doesn't feel like I have mascara on my eyelashes its very lightweight almost feather like.

 

My oil had spilled in the plastic bag which sucks but there is a lot left so I am happy with that.

What's it smell like? I'm getting the same box on one acct and I'm not familiar with it. Ladies keep saying good things, but I don't think I've ever used the brand at all.
post #986 of 2328

Okay this is my attempt at a single post instead of a bunch of replies in a row...

I am sitting here chuckling at all the people who cancelled after October, whoops, more goodies for us. 

 

 

Main Account (tracking number, no shipping email or updates):

 

 

 

 

 

1000

what is the cornucopia item? I thought cornucopia was the packaging, it it also the fragrance? and why is the little sample picture pink? So  many questions. I'm meh on the soyjoy, I am on a self imposed carb restricted diet (-20lbs in 6 weeks yay) and all these bars they send are so carb heavy, no better than actual candy bars.

 

Second Account (Updated Tracking number, will be here Monday)1000

I have a few boxes of the old style chocopods from last time they sampled them, I found them for cheap on amazon and never saw them again, so I have been rationing them. The new flavors look really yummy. I like maple bacon anything, the potato chip is my absolute favorite. they replaced some of the yuckier flavors with better ones.

Oh, he knows! he has the master bedroom at his parents house (he made a buttload of money off a website he made when he was 15 and paid for some remodels to his parents house so he got the master after that. He has a huge jacuzzi tub, so I pack Lush stuff whenever we go there or on any trips, I have made a sizeable dent in my stash thanks to a couple of long trips to Vegas and New York. 

I only have 3 requirements for the apartment next year: 

1. Covered lot parking for my car (I double as chauffer since none of his friends thought it necessary to learn to drive) 

2. Puppy friendly so we can finally get a pomeranian 

3. Soaking sized bath tub.

They have that set on Sephora.com, I ordered it to get an itkit promo kit :). so yay more samples.

So I got my box! The problem is this is how my eyeliner looked icon_cry.gif

No cap, all dried out! 

 

While I was happy my box had a full size lipgloss, this is a real downer sadno.gif

What size is the Oscar Blandi? 

post #989 of 2328

I got what I think is box 9.  I'm willing to trade almost everything in my box.  I feel bad complaining, I just can't use this stuff!  I know a lot of folks want the mascara - so get in touch!

Last night, I just happened to go through all of my boxes on my main account since I signed up, and there is no rhyme or reason (aside from mostly odd numbers and a lot of 7s) for me.  In order: 7, 9, 1, 7, 5, 1, 21, 6, 3, 11, 7, 10, 11, 4, 15, 1, 7, 6, and 1.  I also have two accounts that are getting Box 3s this time, and neither of them got the same box or even a 3 last time.  It all seems pretty random.
