Thats one of the main incentives as to why I sign up and now they may not *most likely* will not even include it. 

Hopefully that's just my "luck" and you'll get yours - I think somebody here posted that they did get the lipstick. I've tweeted them about it and will email on Monday or Tuesday if they don't get back to me. I'm also planning on saying something about this whole sending out discontinued colors thing - I'm not sure I'm okay with that in a box as pricey as GB....

 Why can't we use the code? I was just trying to find the free sampler set on their site but couldn't so I emailed them about it. Then I came here and read your post, but I don't see any other posts about it so maybe I missed them.

my account doesn't show Nov box as well... not even the 'processing' thing. I also used cosmo code.

I haven't received my box yet and I'm in Northern Virginia, but I saw on here someone else in VA who got their box.  Those who got their box and have their state listed under their username, are all on the east coast so far as I can tell.

 

edit: In fact, I just now changed my profile to include my location given that I found it helpful when others had their location displayed.

Yes....I got the lipstick with my box. So it looks like you shouldn't have any problem getting yours.

Btw, HauteLook is having a NUME sale. The prices seem to be discounted more than $100....($225 blowdryer for $79)

So if you are planning on using your code, you may want to check out HauteLook first.

It once happened to me with sunscreen, 30ml of product came in this big tube, which I could visibly see was half empty. I complained to the company of course, but then when I compared it to some other products I had that were also 30ml, I realized a half full tube was probably pretty close. Dumb, I know.

0.5 ounce....15ml

Did everyone get the discount for Nume and Skin & Co? I didn't get anything like that in my box! So much for the first box wowing me :/

Did they at least refund you? That seems like a really unethical thing to do and can get them in a lot of trouble legally.

 

GB really does sound like a disaster in terms of CS. I doubt I'll stick with it past the Dec box unless if they run some damn good promotions.

I've already decided I will be canceling this one.  I *hated* October's box, although there have been some highlights in past boxes, like the Missha (which, yay, I just found out that there's an Asian cosmetics store in my town that is in the process of moving from a hard-to-get-to location twenty minutes away to a sort of mini-mall thing a couple of miles from me that I go to at least once a month, and they carry a *lot* of different bb cream brands from Asia!).  I just can't quite decide *when*.  Now, since they STILL haven't responded to any of my emails about the October surveys?  (As a side note, there was a link on the original response to a survey about the useless response, but the account on the survey site has apparently been deleted.)  After I get this month's box which I've already paid for because they've pissed me off with the lack of response?  After December in the hope that they do something festive for the end-of-the-year stuff?  Once I finally get enough points for a new box since I'm just a few months away from that?  After their anniversary month, just in case they do something good that month for those of us who have stuck it out through their first year?  

 

This whole lack-of-CS thing is starting to make me hate this company, but I do get the occasional great thing that does make the price worth it, but I'm not really sure it's worth it in the long run.  One month might have *nothing* I will use, but then the previous/next month will have $70 worth of stuff I will, so I'm still ahead, but it is really frustrating and disappointing to get a box of bleh (which is worse than blah, in case anyone was wondering) that just takes up space in my apartment.

So I just walked in the door from the Thanksgiving out of town and found not one, but TWO glossyboxes here.  I did the R29 deal.  I also signed up for the December 40% off box late Friday night.  But I was shipped both the R29 box AND the regular box for November.  I guess that sort of makes up for the wrong color Missha?  (At least this time it's #21.  I use #13.  I think I may keep the #21 because it's just one shade darker and might make sense for next summer?)

 

In my non-R29 box-of-mysterious-origins, I got

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Argan oil

Illamasqua pencil in Thrash (orange)
Skin & Co Truffle serum
Perfumies in Kissing Bandit (meh - smells like... something.  I will have to report back on that) 
Lierac body scrub

 

 

 

I have to say the R29 box seems so nice compared to the regular box: better sizes, an additional product, and I get weirdly annoyed by coupons in my sub boxes, especially with high spend values.  The Skin&Co one - correct me if I'm wrong - requires a $50 spend to get the "rest" of the sample?  

 

Now WHY I got a regular box??? Beats me.  It doesn't seem to be the December box I just ordered - couldn't have gotten here that fast and doesn't say it was processed on my account page.  I'm totally confused.

Thrash is really orange.  Not sure how to use a shade like this!

I've already voiced that the r29 box is MUCH better than the regular box and seeing them side by side like that is really giving me box envy! My first GB was October which didn't wow me but I did use most of the products and this November box isn't really wowing me either BUT I'm not ready to cancel quite yet. Looking at the past boxes there seem to be quite a few awesome ones so I am just gonna wait it out and hope that the past 2 months were off months.
post #348 of 776

In metro ATL and don't have a shipping notice yet. Just looked on my account and nothing listed there as well. After December I'm done. They charge too early in the month for me to wait until the first of every month to get my box.

post #349 of 776

And despite having received two boxes, I still haven't received a shipping notice this month!

post #350 of 776
I live in IL and got my box Friday or Saturday (not sure). I never got a shipping notice, it just showed up. This is the last month of my 3 month sub from using the NYFW for a free box, so I'm taking a break. I probably should have signed up for the 40% off December one time box, but I just skipped it. I like the boxes, but I don't love them. Considering that the $21/month could go towards my student loans instead, I just can't continue this sub without LOVING it. I still have yet to open my box.
But today they did respond to my email from last week about replacing my shine mist and lipstick/gloss duo from last month and are supposed to be sending new ones.
post #351 of 776

Yeah, the R29 boxes really are better, IMO...so I'm a little sad that I didn't go for it (would have LOVED another Missha...mine is already almost gone, I use it so often!) but the regular boxes don't look bad to me...don't know what I'm getting in mine yet, of course, but while it won't be my favorite GB, I don't think I'll be unhappy with it.

 

I really really hope I get the hand cream though! Subs keep sending out hand cream, and I never get it...and I work in healthcare and wash my hands a billion times a day, I need hand cream, dangit! lol :)

 

 

No shipping notice here, yet...and they charged me later than most everyone else, so I'm assuming my box will be quite late.

Have you tried the 21 yet? I am very pale (typically take the lightest shade in most everything) and I got the 21 in my box when we got it before, and it actually wasn't too dark on me like I feared! It's versatile and it adjusts itself, and I've been using it daily. When I repurchase, I'll be buying the 13 but even on my super pale face, the 21 is wearable. :)

I'm in a similar very pale boat, and I was stunned when I discovered that the 21 is actually almost too *pale*!  I am very happy with the 21, and I had originally thought I would try to find a 13, but I finally decided that 21 *works* for me.  I might try other shades of BB cream in other brands once Pretty & Cute finishes its brick-and-mortar relocation since the new store is going to be a whole mile away from me in a sort of mini-mall I go to at least once a month and pass by several times a week, but until then, 21 will work nicely for my pasty skin, especially since (yay!) I'm getting another one in a swap.

Same with me. I usually take the lightest color of everything and although the 21 is a shade too dark (I only really noticed this after 3 months of wear when I was in Barney's the other day and a rep applied some foundation on my cheek and I realized it was a perfect match while my forehead was much darker) it is very wearable. Would the 13 be better? yes, but I'm not going to let the 21 go to waste. =)

It just said for me that the code is invalid (I posted the message a page ago)... I don't know if it was because I didn't have $50 added to the cart (I randomly added some $49-priced product to the cart). I'll go and try again :D

I feel the same way about GB. I signed up for the December box with the deal but I don't think I'll stick it out after reading about their CS. It's too bad because it looks like there are such wonderful products in the boxes!!!

post #357 of 776
I still don't have either of my boxes But I know some folks were talking about the Nume code so I thought I would mention for anyone interested that BeautyArmy has a blackops deal with the Sum 3 sets in Purple Zebra and Pink Cheetah for $79 which seems like a really good deal (I don't heat style my hair so I am clueless, LOL).
post #358 of 776

Came back to my box today! Got

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Hand cream

Illamasqua in Thrash - it's orange
Argan Oil
Perfume Stick
Truffle Serum

 

Stoked I got the hand cream, was wanting that. Also ended up loving the scent of my perfume stick, I seem to like those really sweet, admittedly probably sickening for some people scents. ;) 

 

I am eh on the Medium pencil. I guess orange lips are in now or something but I don't know if I want to do that? If anyone with a "boring" color wants to trade, I would jump on that so fast. :)

I didn't get a Nume code though. :( Does anyone not want theirs or do you think it's something I should contact GB about?

Has anyone had their customer service issues completely unresolved?  From what I've read, they're basically just slow as molasses in resolving complaints and answering customer inquiries, but they eventually do their best to actually resolve them.  

 

If I had any impression that GB just callously flips the bird at their customers, I never would have signed up.

Your box is what I'm crossing my fingers for.  Basically, I don't want the nail applique's.  I don't care what color the Illamasqua pencil is, so long as I don't get the applique's.
