I just got my box and I received Tarte lipstick in WILD. Completely bummed. Was hoping for the blush. :( And I didn't get a second box...guess I'm not lucky enough, haha.

Now that my box is registering on Newgistics, I'm hoping for the tarte in Wild! Anything else will almost definitely be looking for a new home. I'm not expecting my box before Presidents' Day, though.

I got the tint too, and never recieved either of those lip products from them before either.

 I could understand late subscribers recieving the cheek tint, but the thing I don't understand I've been with GB since day one, and I got stuck with the tint. Dissapointed!!!

So, is Glossybox to blame for the super late boxes or is it their shipping company?

 

Or is it a little bit of both?

I'd say a little of both :-)

I finally got my box today (that word finally is so big and bold in my brain lol) and I received the Tarte lipstick in Fierce. I had been hoping for Tarte in either shade as I am a big fan but have never tried lipstick. Even if the color ends up not being my favorite overall I am definitely interested in formula. I also used the LIPS code and did not get anything extra. Not sure if I am up for that battle. I might only have an email in me...

Potion 9 is a MIRACLE for my dry curly hair. I don't think my hair has ever been this soft. Never, ever, ever. Amazing!

I am so disgusted with Newgistics and Glossybox. They could have diamonds in their next box and I don't think I would sign up for it. No, I still haven't gotten my boxes. Mine were estimated to arrive between 2/4 and 2/6, which is bad enough. BUT They STILL are not here!

I am disputing the charges on the ones I bought within the allowed time frame. One of my subs was the 3 month one and I think that's beyond the window to dispute on a bank/credit/debit card purchase.

post #1752 of 1980

Oh also, does anyone know where we can put reviews/ opinions of these companies that won't get erased?

post #1753 of 1980

My 80 glossydots finally showed up. Has anyone tried to redeem lately? I can't get passed "processing"

You could still try to dispute the 3 month sub charge. Glossybox has not delivered what you bought, which is why disputes are allowed to begin with. Check with your bank/card company to see how they can help you.

My extra 80 showed up too! :-) As late as this box was...I think I'm still in love with the Glossybox <3 The contents were fab!

post #1757 of 1980
Got my box today. I got the Tarte lipstick in Fierce which is what I wanted! I also got the Potion 9. Is it like a flexible hair spray type thing?

Definatly not a hair spray. Its more like a leave in conditioner. It made my hair soft and a little more voluminous, but I don't think it would hold a style.

post #1759 of 1980
Good to know! I just went through my Kerastase leave in samples from BB so I'm excited to try it.
post #1760 of 1980

After receiving the 80 (x2) Glossydots, I'm more than half way to a free box.  Gah.  I'm so conflicted about canceling now.

post #1761 of 1980

You will have to pay $100 to get a free box. Think of it that way.

How do you use it? I have curly hair too that's pretty dry, but it's also fine so I can't put a lot of product in it (especially at my roots) or it will weigh it down so I haven't used the Potion 9 yet because I'm not quite sure how to use it.

 Newgistics is on Twitter.  @newgistics

post #1764 of 1980

I just called Glossybox and actually reached a person! I was going to give up on not getting the lipstick for using the code LIPS, but they were super apologetic and said they'll be sending my item to me right away.

post #1765 of 1980
FINALLY got my box yesterday. I was all ready to go with the charge back when I got home yesterday but it was there. I got the Tarte lipstick in Wild. When I opened it though there was a big crease in the lipstick that looked like it would break in half if I tried to use it. Huge fail, glossybox!

Newgistics has been notoriously awful and slow forever - nothing's changed there and I doubt it ever will. This month I put the blame on Glossybox because they didn't have their supply ready for the amount of new subs they took on.

The thing about newgistics is, I buy a lot form ASOS.com, a british company, and they use newgistics and its fine/almost fast. Glossybox must be using the cheapest newgistics service or something because it is so much worse.

Yeah, I actually have never had any problems with Newgistics taking longer than they say they will, and their tracking is always accurate for me. I've just read a ton of people complain about it and figured I was one of the lucky ones. I definitely don't blame them for the late boxes this month.

 

Annnnd now I'm browsing asos.com haha. 70% sale on payday oh boy.

I also put the blame on Glossybox because they just kind of brushed off complaints and inquiries because "we assure you all boxes have been sent!" (I think that was an exact quote) and from all appearances left it at that instead of following up with Newgistics in a timely manner.

ETA: I also question whether these boxes were even given to Newgistics before yesterday. I would not be surprised to find out that my box is cobbled together from random leftovers I've already received because they forgot to send my box.

I tried the Living Proof primer yesterday and straightened my hair.. Still looks perfect today. I wash my hair every other day, I am curious how it will look tomorrow, I wold love if I could go three days!

I hope those with extra boxes think about swapping.. I'd love to try the other hair product and also the Tarte cheek tint.. I got the lipstain in Belle Etoile which I won't be able to pull off.
