"Epically screwing up" for $200, Alex.  I didn't want to miss out on the regular Nov box, and now I have 2 icon_biggrin.gif

It could possibly be that they're giving the r29 deal people two boxes for the ad mix-up. When I spoke to the r29 people about the deal they said they were in talks to give the people who bought the deal under the impression they were getting full sized products something extra to make up for it, but that's what I assumed the OPI nail polish was as it wasn't in the "hit list" from the start.

It does smell like a has a dominant note of cherries like those in the chocolate covered cherry candies, but it doesn't smell sickening sweet either, to me anyway, the cherry seems balanced with whatever other scents are in there.  It smells heavenly to me, Perfumies should make a scent like this, haha, I'd totally buy it and like, huff it, I really enjoy the scent of this serum.

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.
 

 

Thanks for pointing this out.  I just bought a new clarifying shampoo to get all the silicone out of my hair that was in my last shampoo.  My hair has been a nightmare, I definitely won't be using this so-called "Argan" oil.

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)

I'm a bit surprised the BB cream isn't full sized considering they sent out a full sized one before.  As far as it being budget-friendly for future purchases, it's only $29.99 on their website and they occasionally do 40% off sales and deals that will help knock down the price.  You just missed the cyber Monday 40% off sitewide deal, unfortunately, but be alert for more deals in the future.

 

My updated updated tracking number shows my box shipped the 21st but has barely moved.  I'm doubtful I'll get it before December.  Boo. 

 

Although if I got the R29 and a regular box, I'd be able to more than overlook the small Missha (which is must be if it's the size of the lip balm!) and the shipping annoyances.  Unless this was something they are doing for everyone, I'm not likely to luck out.  Lucky you, though!  Congrats!

I don't claim to know geography but my box went from NJ to VA then to PA where it just seems to be hanging out. I'm just south of VA so I don't understand it.

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!

You got almost literally the exact box I did, including the color. It takes a little effort but I figured out that you can combine it with a pink tint or gloss if you've got one and get a nice coral shade. :) For lips of course, I googled a bunch of eye makeup pics and decided that was hopeless.

post #458 of 776
After the third e-mail Glossybox sent, I can finally see tracking! It's out for delivery now, so I should have it when I get home. It's been a reasonably fun time with GB, but I'm happy to call it quits for a while after this box.

Put your tracking number in the USPS tracking site to get a better idea of it's location.  Once it's accepted by your local post office it'll be delivered that day or the next, depending on when it arrives at your local post office.

 

My mail carrier probably hates me, I've already heard him go "Oh that girl in #2, she gets a lot of stuff."  But when you work two jobs coming home to stuff at your door is WAY easier than spending time running around from mall the mall.

Im so excited to get home- my box is waiting for me.  I'm secretly hoping that Glossybox screwd up and gave me the R29 box- it looks so amazing.  I know this isn't possible but a girl can dream can't she...LOL!

I received this box but my illamasqua is in Strumpet, which is a bright pinkish color. Here's a picture.

Has anyone emailed glossy box about the Skin & Co being empty? Mine is super light and i looked into its and its like nothing is in there!

post #464 of 776

Sooooo weird....I actually got 2 boxes today.....I bought the Refinery 29 deal and thats all I had on there.  I am thrilled about it but did everyone who got the refinery 29 deal get 2 boxes? 

post #465 of 776

It seems like a lot of people who bought the R29 got 2 boxes... another reason to wish I had purchased it.  I do love that gold polish.  I got:

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

The Epionce Hand Cream
The Illamasqua in bright orange
The Arganics by Nume
The Truffle Serum
Solid Stick Perfumies in "Double Rainbow: A heavenly soft and whimsical blend of hydrangea and violet with nuances of pear and musk. "

I had of course hoped for any color of the Illamasqua other than orange or yellow and really hoped for the Lierac and the blush.  I'm open to trading anything!

post #466 of 776

Got my box today..gotta say I'm pretty dissapointed:( I got the truffle skin cream which was empty. The orange illamasqua, a body scrub, the perfume that smells like cheap soap and my argan oil was missing. This was my fav sub but this month..for the amount of money..sucked.

post #467 of 776

Super bummed. I paid for 2 boxes this month and got two IDENTICAL boxes. Which means I have 2 full size Epionce Hand Cream. Will be looking to get rid of one of them. Any takers? I would love to swap for the blush but I am pretty open. I also got the perfume in sugar bear that I'm not too excited about.

Ahhh, so this must be the company Maria (owner of Cult Nails) was talking about. Good for her! I'm so happy for her because her polishes are fantastic.

 

Someone post the link to R29, please.

post #470 of 776

I bought the R29 boxes in addition to my normal boxes.  Both of my boxes arrived and imagine my surprise when I opened them both to find exact duplicates of the normal lame November month boxes and NOT the R29 box. Same exact color of eye pencil in the light gray but two different smelly perfume sticks.  I'm so dissappointed!  I want my R29 box!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This looks like a good box!

Urgh, what I said about wanting, say, neon lime green liner but probably getting brown or black?  I got brown.  Specifically, Honour.  And the perfume stick is Canoodle, which is apparently a mix of roses, jasmine, geranium, and soap.  Hate brown liner, can't wear soapy florals.  Anyone want to swap their blue/green/purple/fuchsia pencil and/or fruity perfume stick (actually, I'm pretty much interested in just about any of them that are *not* on the Perfumies Clean scent page)?  I'm especially bummed about the perfume stick because finally!  Scent in a subscription box in a form I can actually *wear*!  And it turns out that it's a scent that is practically custom-made to give me a headache.  All it need is white sandalwood or white musk to *guarantee* it.

 

(And the truffle serum!  Argh!  Dear all serum/lotion/cleanser/etc. companies:  If you are sending one tablespoon -- per the size printed on the back of the tube, that's how much was in there, and based on my eyeball guesstimation, that actually does seem to be right -- of a product, send it in a container appropriate for the amount you're sending!  Otherwise, we will assume that you don't know how to fill containers, and we won't buy your stuff.  And the "code" for a free sampler?  The sampler *is* free on your website!  The code isn't recognized!)

 

(On the up side, someone finally responded to my emails about missing my October surveys -- more than two weeks after my first email.  They're just giving me the points rather than loading the surveys.  Oh, wait a second:  They gave me *five hundred* points for the missing surveys, not one hundred as they should have for one missing month.  Okay, I'm not as super pissed off at them now, assuming they don't change their mind and take them back.  I'm over the threshold for a free box now.  I wonder whether I'll have to fight them about redeeming those points next month or if they just do it automatically.)

post #473 of 776

I recieved 3 shipping notices for my Glossybox.  The 3rd one appears to be the correct one, and my box is in my state, so I'll probably have it tomorrow.  I hope my eye or lip pencil is a color I will actually use.  I'm also hoping to get the hand cream, and the Leirac exfoliator.  And the blush.

 

This is my 1st Glossybox, and I'm not sure how I feel about it.  I looked at the pictures and videos on You Tube before joining, and I was a lot more impressed with the previous months.  I ended up canceling after seeing this months box online, but since I liked what I saw for all the previous months, I will probably rejoin for next month, and then make a decision.  I'm also thinking about Test Tube Beauty.  I like that I could purchase just one box from QVC without making a commitment.

Girl, never come near me because you'd get the worst migraine of your life. Sandalwood and white/egyptian musk (and amber) are my favorite type of perfume notes along with roses. Hahaha.

 

Wish I had something to offer.. I know you said you liked brights and neons.. would you be interested in something that didn't come from a sub box? I may have some things stashed away (new or like-new/opened but never used). If so, message me what type of things you like (blush, e/s, nail polish, etc)!

The blush is sooooooo beautiful on!! I love it!

That R29 holiday box looks good, but it also seems kind of expensive to me, so I think I'll pass. It looks super nice, but I just have soooo many hair masks and nail polishes and I already own that Josie Moran product.

But I still think Glossyboxes boxes are the best made and prettiest of all the sub box boxes. I ended up recycling all of my Sample Society and Birchbox ones and keeping the 4 GlossyBox ones I have because they're just so nice and sturdy!

I love it too! Love the color, the texture (blends beautifully! and all this time I thought my blotchy blush issues were due to a bad brush...) and it lasts all day!

I also actually liked the argan oil - I was in need of a silicone shine serum, and this one does a great job on my hair with no added greasiness. No way I'm paying $59 for a full bottle though.

 

Not too huge of a fan of the truffle serum. I thought it was kind of odd that the third listed ingredient is starch (huh?), and it feels sticky when you apply it. I kind of want to let it dry before I put my cream on, but as it dries it starts to "pull" on the skin, and that just feels weird. 

post #479 of 776

Does anyone have that December R29 link? Can';t find and I think my sub is up in December!

 

ETA:  Ooooops. saw it up there! Not really worth it. Oh, well.
