I am actually not thrilled to be getting a Nume product, to be honest. I just find that company cheesy and a little scammy

I still don't have my box, but I see a lot of people posting about nume.  They frequently have Groupons that are likely much better than any coupon out there.  Today they have a hairdryer for $69 (site lists it as $225) http://www.groupon.com/deals/gg-nume-hairdryer.  When I googled "Nume Groupon" I saw they had recently their curling wand for $44 in October.

I could see Hex as being an actual multi-use shade for eyes or lips. A lot of my friends prefer to use a nude liner under both nude and red lipstick.

Bleh, Glossybox sent my box to the billing address and I won't get there until the end of December :(

I hadn't got a tracking # so I called GB yesterday and the lady assured me that my box went out on the 19th "with everyone else's" then 3 hours later I got a tracking # email!  I HOPE I get my box this week!

I think it's the fact that the prices on their website are extremely high to give the impression that they are of high quality.  Any company that frequently offers $100 off full price most of the time really just reinforces their overpricing to me.  During MyGlam/Ipsy's introduction of them to me several months ago, it felt like I couldn't find any reliable reviews as it was mostly people who got their products for free or they felt biased/too new in some way.

 

So nothing outright obnoxious, but just the sort of thing that for me personally makes me disinterested in the brand: ambiguous quality at very inflated pricing.

 

 

I just got a second tracking notification this time telling me that my R29 box had shipped.  There was no tracking # included and the link led to a page without one either.  Silliness.  The only way this will be fun for me is if they happen to send me two boxes, but I think the reality is their tracking number situation just got really screwed up this month.

I feel exactly the same. I usually rave about my Glossy Boxes but I am so Meh about this one. My Truffle Serum is also empty :(

Yep. I just sent off another form in their "contact us" page. I was excited that the email was in response to my first query, and got the blank tracking number. So sad. All I want is to know when my box will get here =(

I got the same email today, except no box yet. it usually takes longer for mine to come since I live Wa state.

They sent an email earlier this month to be patient that Hurricane Sandy affected their operations. Living in a hurricane zone I understand that you don't just recover overnight. They usually make things right when items are missing or destroyed.

Just got my box, it was in my mailbox, so it may have come yesterday afternoon for all I know.  I wasn't expecting it to be something that could even fit in my mailbox.

 

Here's what I got, and my initial thoughts:

 

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Illamasqua pencil in Exert (a grey)  - The color is a nice medium grey, but the texture seemed quite hard and scratchy when I applied a swatch on the back of my hand, but it did just come in from being out in the cold, maybe it'll get creamier once it warms up to room temperature.  But I'm pleased I didn't get a bizarre color.

 
Perfumies perfume stick in Vanilla Ice - Smelled like Red Vines Candy, a red licorice smell, when I first put it on.  It has quickly subdued to a vanilla, Cabbage Patch Kids, kind of smell.  I'm happy with this for keeping in my purse, as it's a non-offensive and pretty mild and generic (vanilla, lol) scent to me.  I think this is just slightly larger than a soft lips chapstick, and I'm guessing it's full size.
 
Lierac Gommage - If this were a facial exfoliant it would be a decent sized sample, but it's a body exfoliant, so I'm disappointed with the size of this one, I have my doubts that I could get more than one use out of it, but we'll see.  It's 1.1 oz, and full size is 3.5oz
 
Nume Arganics - Don't know the size, part of the label has worn off, so it says 0 ml.  I'm guessing it's a little less than .5 oz.  I like that it has a dropper.  I already have a huge thing of Argan Oil, so I'm personally not excited about this sample, but I think I would be if I had never tried Argan Oil before.
 
Skin&Co Truffle Serum - This is .5 oz, so half of the full size. It smells really really good,, but I can't put my finger on the smell.  I can't wait to try this.
 
Also got the coupons and the glossymag.
 
I'm very happy with my box.

Mine is out for delivery! Wooo hooo! Should have it soon : ). Maybe they will accidently send me an R29 box instead of the regular one. Hey a girl can dream : )

To me it smells like the cherries that come inside those Queen Anne Chocolate Covered Cordial Cherries. I loooooove it!

So I just got visited by the glossybox fairy after receiving multiple tracking emails with a tracking number that didn't work. I ended up getting *TWO* boxes, my Refinery one, and the normal one.

 

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

The refinery 29 came with the phytonectar oil, the vbeaut rub off gentle exfoliator, the mocha rose lip balm with vanilla, the lierac creme mesolift creme, and the misscha perfect cover bb cream (not full size). My additional item for the misleading ad (saying that all the items were full-size) was a full size opi nail polish in Goldeneye. (picture below)  I'm slightly put off that the bb cream wasn't full size again because now after I'm done with the one from the gb from two months ago and this small one, I'll have to either suck it up and buy a new one, or find something slightly more budget-friendly.

 

The additional box had the blush(which i got in my last gb so that'll likely be up for trade), the illasquama pencil in extreme (looks brown on the stick but swatches red) the half-empty truffle oil,the nume argan oil, and the incoco nail stickers in "Sinderella". (no pic for that one sorry)

The thing that bugs me about the NuMe product we received (I guess I'll spoiler this) is

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

It's not even really argan oil.  It's called "Arganics Argan Oil" but Argan Oil doesn't even appear until way down in the ingredients list.  I find it really misleading.  The rest (most of it?) is basically silicone.  

Ingredients: 
Cyclopentasiloxane (silicone), Cyclohexasiloxane (silicone), Dimethicone (my arch nemesis, silicone), Phenyltrimethicone (silicone), C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate (not a silicone, actually), Argania Spinasa Kernal Oil (oh, THERE’s the Argan Oil, finally), Aminopropyl Phenyl Trimethicone (silicone), Tocopherol (vitamin E), Fragrance, Red 17, Yellow 11.

Came home to my box today!

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

I got the argan oil, truffle serum, hand cream, perfume stick, and the Illasquama pencil in thrash, which is BRIGHT orange. Not sure what I'm going to do with that. I'm excited about all of the other items!

I noticed that after looking closer at the bottle and I'm not super pleased.

post #450 of 776

Has anyone only gotten an R29 box?  Were the R29 people supposed to get both the R29 box and the regular box?  Or are they just epically screwing up?
