Got my 2nd box! It is a different box than my first. Pics of my Jewelmint item:

 

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

This one has the same bath oil, different bath salts (White Tea this time), the same Zoya (Storm),same Pleats Please, that tiny hair oil and the Oscar Blandi spray. 

 
And another necklace! EDIT, I was wrong, this is the Opera Pearl Necklace, not the prima donna!  This one has two tone pearls (two shades of pink) and litte gems, and they look pink too...super cute.

It's a very long necklace, this is it doubled, which is how I will wear it. Excited that I got two necklaces, because they are the only jewelry I wear on a daily basis. :)

 

I was hoping for a different Zoya, but this one will be great as a gift for my little sister, who is 16 and will love it. 

 

I would have been disappointed if this were my main box for the month, I definitely liked the first better, with the lipstick instead of the Oscar Blandi (I don't heat style, so this is also going in the goody box for my sis!), but combined, I am happy.

Can't complain there but a lot of their shades for the travel size is out of stock.

Excellent! Just curious what # travel size did you buy? And what color did you get in your GB?

I I just guessed that #23 would be right for me, since #13 (which GB sent me) was way too light.

I am light medium complexion or fair/medium.

I got my box today!!! When I saw everybody's pictures, I wasn't too excited for the box. But now that I have in my hands, I'm happy!

I like these. I've never worn hoop earrings before.

This was my first Glossbox! I really like it, but I already cancelled from hearing problems with them, and I need to cut down on my spending.

I'm quite sad :( I got my glossybox a few days ago, and the more I've been thinking about it, the more I wanted the bath oil  . Instead, i got Denise richards volume extend finishing spray by christophe. umm what? at least i didn't get the entire box listed on my card, which would have been the oscar blandi instead of the lipstick. no thank you 3 hair products. the ones i missed were the ones i would have used, too. i also have already lost my jewelmint ring on my desk. oh well. my boyfriend likes the pleats please scent on me, and he hates perfumes.

I bought 23 in the travel size and got 27 in gb. The 27 is almost perfect and just a tad dark but was perfect during the summer. I wear Mac nc30 foundation. I know I'm between 23-27 so I just have to mess with the ratio when I mix foundations. I am a true medium.

Tried out a couple of the products last night!

 

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Last night after work, I took a bath using the white ginger bath salts and the Jasmine bath oil...my skin is so soft and smooth, even still! And the oil kept my skin nice and dewy.I put some in the bath water itself instead of applying it after the bath. I don't generally like the scent of jasmine much, but for this purpose it was really nice and felt luxurious. The ginger salts were fairly mild smelling, the white tea ones I got today are stronger.

 

And I've been wearing Storm the past few days and gotten a ton of compliments...so pretty!

post #728 of 954

Got my box today!  I am pretty pleased that I got the lipstick even though I really wanted the bath oil!  Maybe I will have luck on the trade threads!

 

Pics in spoilers!

The Missha site is having a HUGE sale..30% off everything and lots of promo's from now until Xmas.

First time purchasers automatically get a FREE...full size Perfect Cover BB cream in #21, with a $1 purchase!

Plus there's free shipping over $40 with a "Santa gift from them to us"...and if you spend $60 you ALSO get a FREE Missha Signature Real Complete BB Cream in # 23. 

Ok, all these promo's and freebies are making your head spin...so let me break it down.

I just purchased the Perfect Cover BB cream in #23, and as a first time buyer on the site I got another full size tube in #21. 
Score!  A Missha for %30 off PLUS another Missha for free!
And my Santa gift that they automatically added to my cart was a Nail Stars polish kit...3 glitter polishes for FREE!

Did I stop there? No. I wanted to make the free shipping at $40 dollars, so I added two lipsticks.(packaging is stunning btw)
Then I realized $20 dollars more (for a $60 total) I would get ANOTHER FREE GIFT.
This gift was a full size Signature BB cream.

So a couple of face masks in my cart later...
and for $60+ I got 
2 FREE full size BB creams,(both the Perfect Cover in #21 as a first time purchaser, and the Signature Complete in #23 as a $60 spender) PLUS a nail polish kit with 3 glitter polishes, and free shipping!
Not to mention the purchases I did make were 30% off!

I thought this was a fantabulous deal and wanted to share.
It goes on until the 25th.

Ok, now we can go back to venting about how much we loved/hated our box!

Thanks for posting this...I think! I just spent $133 on the Missha website after seeing your post. I got some great freebies though! Free Night Serum, 2 BB Creams and 5 sheet masks. I can't wait to get my order in the mail, yay!!

Excellent score! I am glad you got great stuff. I may make another purchase myself. :)

My box its the same stuff everyone else got, just thought I would upload my jewelmint that I got three of lol


Otherwise, I am happy with my box. Just wish I didn't get three of the same ones, I will cancel my glossybox after this. frown.gif
post #733 of 954

Looking at the comparison of OPI's Goldeneye and Zoya Ziv, I prefer the zoya! That's gorgeous! If I didn't wear shellac I would love to have that color. I rarely use regular polishes but wow that is pretty.
 

post #734 of 954

Does anyone else show nothing in her account? My box hasn't even shipped. At first I thought the sub was expired but then I realized the first of my six months was July.

post #735 of 954

I have 1000 dots - if I apply them now am I safe to get the January box?  I don't want another Dec box...

post #736 of 954

Did anyone else get a second box they didn't order?? I received a second box today and I don't know why. I'm wondering if it has anything to do with the COSMO code I signed up with that said I would receive an extra box which I assumed meant a free box for a different month. The box was exactly the same as my first one except for the jewelmint piece.

I would wait. I bet if you did it now you would get another December box. Just a guess though. I need to renew but I'm waiting until Jan. 1 to hopefully avoid that.

received my box today as well. my box contained the finishing spray, heartland bath salts, mark lipclick, pleatsplease vial, wella packet and zoyz electra. the jewelmint ring i received is not my cup of tea. i would much rather have had the necklace options or the bracelet. here is a picture of the jewelmint ring

I used the bath oil tonight and I really like it. Normally I don't like Jasmine smells, but this one was really nice. It was the first time I used a bath/shower oil! I LOVE when I get a box and something I wasn't interested in becomes one of my favorite items.

lol, this was my experience exactly! I was like "Bath oil? Eh, cool. I'll try it. Jasmine? Well...I'll try it..." but I ended up loving it!

I got two of the exact same box. Was hoping for two different pieces of jewelry and one bath oil :(

post #744 of 954

Did you receive the Madurai Jasmine & Mogra? I normally like jasmine but I found this scent unpleasant. The oil absorbed nicely on my skin but I wish I had a different scent.

 

I'm glad they shrink-wrapped the oil. Mine had leaked considerably and I was able to open it over the sink and use soap to clean up the bottle and avoid a mess.

post #745 of 954
The Bath oil is okay. I don't mind th smell - - it's actually pretty nice, but it just feels weirdly greasy. I guess it's cause I got the body shop body and hair oil recently and that dries not sticky

the same products were in the two boxes I got but one had storm and I think the other had I think Electra. I took storm

I agree. That is what makes these boxes so great, you fall in love with things you would never have thought you would.

post #747 of 954

I also received 2 of the same boxes, and I think they shipped the second one because I had written an email asking about why my tracking hadn't updated. Maybe they thought my first box was lost? They both arrived at the same time... This is my first GB and overall it was meh. I got 2 haircare items that I probably won't use, and I'm not a big ring-wearer (I got the big chunky stone ring). I'm excited about the mark lipstick because the color (petal) is perfect for my mom and one of my friends who is looking for new lipstick. I think for me, the contents of this box will be gifts for my friends and sisters. I am only excited about the pink box itself that I will use for storage.

post #748 of 954

Has anyone gotten the purple, red, or green Zoyas? So far, I've only seen the black, silver, and gold.

post #749 of 954
In the Glossybox Mag it said they only sent out the three different Zoya colors. I liked that the mag this month actually talked about the product we received.

My Jewelmint piece was a necklace/pin combo I haven't seen anyone here talk about yet. It was on a long gold colored chain maybe twenty inches and was a heart with red crystals with two doves holding the heart up. I don't see me wearing it as a necklace. I might put it on one of my coats. I like the message of peace that I think it reflects.
post #750 of 954
I didn't even open the Glossymag as past issues have been riddled with spelling and grammar errors and didn't relate to the box at all. If this one actually entions box contents I may read it.
