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.

 

This is exactly how I feel! (This was my first GlossyBox, I got the same exact items.. even the same color eye pencil, weird!) I'll give it another month, but for the price I was definitely unimpressed, and I've heard such good things about them..

True! the points system is the only thing that kept me with BB for so long. I canceled this month though, too many CS issues made it no longer fun for me. The CS issues with GB are going to make me not want it anymore either. Oh well. Hoping for better boxes ahead!

Does anyone's GB still say "processing"?

I tried to reach customer service but have not gotten any response yet and have not been able to reach them on the phone.

 

btw, I have two boxes this month. One I did receive a few days ago...the other is in the one in limbo.

Does anyone else ever feel that they always get what they hope they don't get?  icon_confused.gif

 

I got my GB today and it's the first time I've ever been truly disappointed by them.  I got the same blush in last month's box, so now I have 2 and I don't even wear blush because my cheeks are red enough as it is.  I also got the nail stickers, which I like but can't really use since I can't wear nail polish to work, but I can deal with that.  I'm more upset that I have a repeat item that I won't use.  The only redeeming factor was the eye/lip pencil I got, which is a dark brown and is something I'll definitely use.  I'm kinda sad that both of the sub's I got in the past 2 days have been totally not awesome, but I guess that's part of the deal...

Email them. I got Illamasqua's purity twice. They sent me another color after I emailed them. Maybe you can get a different product.

My box showed up yesterday and the card said I was supposed to get the nail stickers, but they were missing from the package. CS said they'd send them out.

post #517 of 776

Finally got through to customer service about getting getting an exact duplicate instead of R29 and a regular box.  After 20 mins of being unable to find my name or email address, I was told that I would be getting my R29 box sent to me within 5-10 business days.  Hoping for the best but after reading how long replacements take, I won't be obsessively checking my mailbox.  Regular boxes were very underwhelming this month after the last few amazing boxes but still miles better than my very best Birchbox.

post #518 of 776

I finally got mine!! I got the R29 and the regular box. I got the missha in 23 and it's still too light for me. I would love to trade it for Lierac or the Rub off. I got Titivate

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

 Illamasqua

 

 

 

 would love to trade it for black. I'd also like to get rid off the OPI Golden eye. Thanks!!

post #519 of 776
I wish I had gotten the R29 box. It's definitely much better than the regular box this month!
post #520 of 776

So upset, my box said out for delivery yesterday but never arrived. Today the USPS website says delivery status not updated and still no box. I know it's not Glossybox's fault but I want my goodies :(

post #521 of 776

Anyone want to trade my Lierac Anti-age cream for the Lierac body scrub? Also, have some other stuff I'd be willing to trade for the Epionce. 

post #522 of 776

I bought refinery deal. Yesterday got regular november box. called today and emailed and finally they said they would send me the refinery box. nothing in the regular box appeals to me. I got:

eye pencil in neon green

lierac scrub

empty truffle stuff

 

bleh

I don't think mine is ever going to show up, still no shipping confirmation
post #524 of 776

The box will probably show up but not until December. It annoyed me to no end that I was charged for the July box BEFORE getting the June box and that the June box didn't show up until July! So it honestly wouldn't surprise me if your box ends up the same way - showing up the following month instead of the current month.

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.

What does the hand cream smell like?

post #526 of 776
I got the R29 box and the regular November box...I was only expecting the R29 box, so the extra was a bonus! Sounds like I wasn't the only one though.

Got a Missha #21 in my R29 box but definitely need a #31...does any one want to trade??

PM

I forgot to list all of my box contents:

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
  • Illamasqua pencil in Honour (rich chocolate brown)
  • Perfumies solid perfume stick in Canoodle (rose, jasmine, geranium, and soap)
  • Lierac scrub (the full-size is only three times as big as the sample!  Not a size I think of as appropriate for a body scrub.  On the up side, it *is* a whole lot bigger than the body scrub samples Birchbox sends out.  I may actually be able to do an entire leg with this rather than just the front of one shin)
  • NuMe Style Arganics oil
  • Skin & Co Roma Truffle Serum

 

Much better than my October box.  I *hated* that one.  I think the only thing I've used in it was the hair shine spray solely out of curiosity (I have shiny hair to start with, so I'm not sure it actually did anything extra to it, plus I have a good half dozen hair oils that I can't bring myself to get rid of and that do pretty much the exact same job as the spray when I *do* want a little extra shine), although the blusher went into a super fun multiple-item swap, so I am kind of getting some use out of it, even if it's only as swap fodder (but that's better than having it sit in my swap stash for months on end like I thought was going to happen!).  Due to a horrible CS experience (seriously, dude, *two weeks* to respond?  I was on the verge of sending a *fifth* attempt -- which was actually a sixth email -- when they finally responded), I'm seriously considering canceling after the December box, which I seem to be getting for free, if my points balance is correct (they screwed up my surveys and apparently gave me extra bonus points to compensate for the fact that it took them *two weeks* to respond, which put me past the threshold for a free box).

It's almost a raspberry smell, but not quite. Like raspberries gone bad maybe hahaha. I can't place it but not a fan.

I got the llamas qua in hex... I would love to swap it for a brown or blackish color. Check out my swap list and let me know if anyone is interested smile.gif
post #530 of 776

I guess I'm the only one who liked my box this month, eh? I skipped last month for financial reasons, but I did love my September box. 

 

 

 

 

I got the pink lip pencil. Not sure if I'll use it, but it's a good value and will be a nice swap. The perfume stick is in Kissing Bandit, which I like. The hand cream is really nice and came packaged in a box with the ingredients and expiration date! I was less than thrilled that the oil just got thrown in the box, but thankfully it didn't leak. I'm not sure I'd want to use it on my face because of the fragrance, but it'll get used on my cuticles regardless. As for the truffle serum, I'm excited to try it but I'm sad to hear it's probably half empty. Also, WTF is up with that coupon code?!

post #531 of 776

Got my box today!  yay!  I got the 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

Illamasqua in hex (wish I would have got a fun color but I will use it!)
 
Inoco nail strips in Sinderalla (wish they would have sent out more colors.  I have tried the Kiss stickers and Sally Hansen so interested to see whose are best!
 
Kryolan blush ( wanted it last month got it this month.  Opened the lid, the whole lid popped out, the pan of blush is not glued or secured, and fell on the ground.  Thank goodness on carpet but a little scuffed around the edges)
 
Nume coupon and Arganics- I have enough hair oil to last me for about 10 years
 
Skin &Co Roma-tube feels halfish.  Found it interesting on the card it goes on about all the wonderful things in this prouct the states use daily for a......no other print anywhere about this.
 
Ahh Glossybox you send good things, I haven't had to contact you for customer service but really SPELL CHECK and edit please!

That is a pain, I agree, but I think it has to do with the date that you subscribe for the box. If you subscribe at a certain time of the month it's just going to work out that way with the shipping schedule.

post #533 of 776

I disagree. I usually get my first thing and I was one of the first 100 subscribers. My box apparently just shipped.

Anyone have the Perfumies in Vanilla Ice, Buttercup, Birthday Suit, Tough Cookie or Sugar Bear? I have Eternal Flame and I'm not too crazy about it. 

post #535 of 776

I think Thanksgiving, Sandy, & R29 boxes contributed to this one taking a bit longer.  I'm normally somewhere in the early middle of the pack on getting my box and I haven't yet.  I know it's coming, though, I'm not too worried.

I got both boxes as well... I did not realize I would be getting double boxes for November, and I already had a double sub. I was VERY surprised to find a stack of FOUR boxes on my doorstep today!!! Not that I'm complaining, but that's a whole heck of a lot of glossy! At least all my colors/fragrances were different! :)

 

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

I was super pleased to get more Missha in the R29 box, and in a cute little size, perfect for travel -- I got a better color match this time, too! 

 
I was NOT a fan of the Illamasqua liners, only because they are not conservative enough colors for my daily use. I didn't even try them, as I am hoping to trade for another color or another product. I got a hot pink and a periwinkle blue. 
 
I loved the idea of the perfume stick, but not terribly pleased with the product. I didn't like the texture of the stick (too soft), and the fragrances don't seem to last very long. I got Forever Young (which I think is rather nice) and another one I forget now that smells kind of ...weird.
 
I also got the rub off cleanser and the NuMe argan oil.
 
If anyone wants my (two) argan oils, I'd be thrilled to trade for something else. I'd love the hand cream since I didn't get that in my box, but I'm open to other offers.
 
I WAS SO HAPPY to get the Goldeneye!!!!! Favorite item other than the Missha. But... I got two, hehe. I may give one away as a stocking stuffer for Christmas, but if anyone has something fabulous they'd like to trade for it, I'd be happy to consider it.

 

post #539 of 776
I'm confused. R29 boxes didn't come with a full size 50ml missha this time?
