(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.)


I haven't received my box yet but if I get anything remotely neon in the pencil color, it is all yours!

Yeah, my thoughts exactly...too many hair masks (and polishes) and I also own that Josie Maran products (actually, I have one in route since I bought one of her discounted "Giving Back" sets).  I also hate paying for a scent I don't know about before trying it...

 

That said, I love the cleansing water in this set.  

 

If you need a hair mask this IS a great set and probably a good value - just not what I need or want right now.

I got my "original" shipping notice/tracking" that had all the 2000s going on.  Then got the "oops Beauty blunder email today", then the 3rd times the charm email with a tracking that works!  Mine left Sparks NV so I should have with in a day or too.  Like others am hoping I "accidently" get an R29 box as opposed to a regular, but still excited to see what I get!

post #486 of 776

I just gave in an ordered the December R29 box, after I promised myself I was done shopping for things for myself for the rest of the year :( 

 

I don't see it listed, but does anyone know what color the Josie Maran color stick is?

post #487 of 776

This is my first Glossy Box and it's ... meh. I really hope the next two are better. I'm kinda pissed at myself for paying for three months in advance before trying it out. All the reviews of past months looked so good.

 

If any wants my Nume code, they can have it.

The Nume oil is too perfumed for me, I hate strong floral scents. I was excited about this one :( It's not even Argan oil.

The perfume stick smells like something a 4 year old would wear.

I like the hand cream.

I got the Illamasqua pencil in Strumpet (bright pink/red). It's very creamy. too creamy for a lip liner I think, but I'll give it a shot.

and a nearly empty Truffle Serum with the main ingredients of water, gylcerine, and POTATOE STARCH?

 

 

so, for 22.00 bucks I got a small hand cream and a lip liner I may use once.

awesome. huh.gif

 

I was so hoping this would be better than Birchbox at twice the price.

post #488 of 776
When I saw what was in this months GB i was really bummed BUT today i received my box and I actually like it. Will i use the nume code? No. The hair oil is meh for myself but I have 3 little girls and their hair gets tangled so i will us it on them after their bath or if I run out I have an extra. Wasn't excited about the liner but once I used it I fell in love with it... its a beautiful dark chocolate and glides on beautifully. The nail strips I am hoping to trade for another sample if that falls thru I will try them out and see how they work. The blush is a gorgeous color and my favorite thing in the box. The truffle serum is half empty but a little goes a long way and its enough to see if I like it. So I was not originally excited but ended up loving 2 things in the box and will eventually use all of it. So all in all I am pleased but I still like the R29 box better : )

This is the only box that has disappointed me so far...and it's my 7th box. So don't get too discouraged, hopefully next month, they will go back to their normal awesomeness! I feel very blah about this box in general, but I'm trying to remind myself that I've had bad boxes from all of my subs and one bad month out of 7 isn't too bad?

 

I agree with you about the Nume oil, it's my least favorite thing in the box. The only thing in my box I'm really excited about is the blush...but I do like the sky blue Illamasqua liner I got. Nice and creamy and pretty.

We got the same box (but I got a different color). I am trading the nail strips for a perfume stick and I decided to try the truffle serum even though it's mostly empty and the ingredients are nothing special. The Nume oil is blah and I have actual argan oils I prefer, but I'll use it to detangle. Love the light blue liner, I used it on my waterline today with blue and silver shadow and loved it!


The blush, though, makes up for everything, in my opinion! The color is pretty and subtle and it is so soft and it blends beautifully! LOVE IT. I wore it today and even though I felt under the weather all day, several people commented on how pretty my skin looked and I credit that solely to the blush!:)

I'm jealous of your blush and eyeliner!

post #492 of 776
The blush totally made the box! I am sick and look like hell but the blush was so pretty that once I put it on I felt better... ok maybe didn't feel better but definitely looked a little healthier : ).

I'll have to do that tonight. I'm on my phone and can't copy and paste.

I had my first less than stellar interaction with glossybox CS yesterday. i emailed them (twice) because one of my surveys was missing and finally got a response:

 

We apologize for the delayed response to your inquiry. We did not put the heel balm survey up on the site, that was a mistake on our end. However, just to let you know, your 3-month Glossybox subscription has expired. If you would like to continue receiving boxes, you must resubscribe. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us.

 

 

i'm annoyed that there was no indication that they are ever going to fix their mistake... and as of right now the survey is still missing.  and i also signed up with the COSMO code so I should be getting another box, so i responded to clarify that i still have one coming but god knows when i'll get an answer.

I couldn't find it yesterday, but went to the "Face" tab & then selected "Scrubs & Cleansers".  It is $0.00 & shipping is free.  I tried to enter GLOSSYBOX code & it said it was invalid.  So, I continued, added it to cart, selected free shipping.  When I got to the payment page, it told me "No Payment Info Is Needed".  I got an email confirmation of the order.

11.gif Thanks for this! Free samples + Free shipping... Woot!

post #498 of 776

So this is one time that I'm hoping they DID screw up my R29 order and I get two boxes...

 

Heh... I'd sure hate to be the Glossy employee(s) that overlooked double-shipping boxes. Yikes!

Question- Was I suppose to receive 5 samples in my regular glossybox?  I only received 4 and one of the samples was the skin and co product and it was 1/3 fill :-(-  Am I missing a product, how do I figure out what I'm missing??

 

Thanks Gals.  xoxoxoxo

Cross check your items with the card inside.  The card should list all of the products in your particular box.

post #502 of 776

I just got an email from GlossyBox stating my subscription was about to expire and I needed to re-subscribe.  I have an ongoing monthly subscription.  Did anyone else on their monthly plan get this email?  Is this another glitch or do you now need to re-subscribe on the monthly plan???

post #503 of 776

I had the R29 deal and just got the email about re-subscribing and a $5 off coupon code. Aaand I re-subscribed for 3 months. For better or worse.

Yeah, $45 is quite the stretch. Nothing in the box seems like I HAVE to have it and for that much money it better be something I can't live without.

Thanks so much! Couldn't figure that one out myself.

I've been with GB since the first box and the worst GB I've gotten is still twice as good as the best BB I ever got. There's really not a contest in my mind. BB main redeeming quality is it's points program.
post #509 of 776
I actually got the orange liner and I'd have loved the brown, however I did swatch it on my hand and tossed the box. Oops. Wasn't thinking about a trade.
Wasn't thrilled with the box at all. Would have loved the blush. My perfume is very old ladylike. Not bad but not me. I love my Paula's Choice skincare so the truffle stuff is just blah to me. Hand cream will be used but I hate the smell. The hair oil is ok. I will use it. Hoping my second box will be better.
post #510 of 776

I got my box on Monday.

 

Overall not excited. ( this is the first)

 

The eyeliner is lime green...it's going to a Xmas present

The Other stuff not so sure...Face Serum might be gifted too.

Argan Oil is cool. I spilled my last oil (Made a huge mess)

Nail Stickers will be gifted

The last product I cab't even remeber...thats how unhappy I was....But I am entitled to one box that I don't like.

 

This is fine. The fact the I can use the stuff to give to other people is fine.  This is the Holida to give! Yay!
