Hi!  I am new to MakeUp Talk and Beauty Army.  I just received my first Beauty Army box in the mail last night, and I am very happy with it! This is what I received:  

 

 

 

 For those of you who have had Beauty Army for a while, do you tend to reach a point where the selections aren't that great?  (For example, I avoided foil packets this time, but I am wondering if, after a few boxes, I will select the better items and be left with the less desirable samples.  I know BA replenishes its current stock every day, but does it also add new items to its stock fairly regularly?).

 

I am also on the wait list for Ipsy and Birtchbox, so this is my first beauty subscription service box.  So far so good!

Nice choices!  I'm looking forward to hearing/reading/whatever you think of the boo boo cover ups.  I almost selected that.

I was intrigued by them, that and the rest of the stuff was boring, one b&bw repeat and some foil package shampoos.

My settings are: fair, combo, dramatic, sultry, earth, wild, anti aging, exfoliating, cleanser, make up, masks and eye area. Age was 30-36 or 25-30, don't remember which one exactly, but I would get the same results w either :)

Wow, this is an awesome box... I have actually gotten all these, but during several months of receiving great products along with boring ones! But, yeah, i think it's impossible to keep the following boxes so exciting, with good sized products and no repeats frown.gif I keep getting too many foil packets in my selection window lately!

This is my third month in a row skipping.
post #70 of 203

I skipped this month- just because I already signed up for so many other offers and products and really did not find anything I liked coming. I did order the Ineke sampler collection which should be coming this week and I am very excited to try that out!

post #71 of 203

Well then, I will remain *cautiously* optimistic, but be ready to skip if I need to.  Thanks!rolleyes.gif 

post #72 of 203

do you guys find yourself skipping more often now that the choice is available? this is my first month and i'm wondering how often the selections and types of products overlap each month...

 I have been subbed since  literally day one and I have skipped more than not in the last 7 months. I am only getting a box this month because I forgot

I cannot for the life of me get the Mark gloss in Honey to show up for me! I've been trying for the last 2 months and all I can get to come up EVER is the damn red, which I DO NOT need more of! I've tried just about every variation of the profile I can think of that would make it come up, but noooooo.....

Did you already get the red one and it keeps on showing up? I'd email them if that's the case. For me honey was a repeat though

Nope. I haven't gotten either one, but I really don't want the red. It was the same for me with the Skinn sets, I had to get the coral poppy before the tulip would show up at all. I suppose if I ever want the honey I'm just going to have to suck it up and get the red, if I can get enough other things to come up that I want.

Choose minimal to moderate make up and the lighter color will show up.

They said to get the honey you had to say you wear subtle makeup choices. Don't remember exactly which ones.

post #79 of 203

That's funny  because I tried all possible combinations, with subtle and bold makeup choices, and I couldn't get the red lipgloss to show up. I always got the honey. But I ended up loving the color anyway!  :P I hope you can get it!

YAYZ!!!!!  I got the 4 items I really really wanted this month!  The Ineke, The Honey gloss, the Olive Oil soap, and the Medal of Honor (of course!).  I'm excited to try the "Yes to" item, and then it was either a foil packet of moisturizer, Lash cards, foil packet of primer, or the Boo Boo Covers so... let's see how those are.  But happy dance for getting the items I wanted with minimum refreshing!! Especially on a Saturday afternoon, was not expecting that.

Um, good question, lol.  I actually didn't retake the quiz, it's my settings from last month... the Ineke, Medal of Honor, and Olive Soap popped up right away, I refreshed and the Honey gloss came up, so I KNEW eventually they would all come up together!

 

From what I remember, Fair skin, Combo skin, Minimal Makeup, Purple smokey eye, Thick hair, Floral scent, Bright Nails, age 25-30

 

Types:  Makeup, Fragrance, Body, Cleanser

I'm new to Beauty Army, I saw several of you mention you kept refreshing. Does that still allow me to keep a sample on that page I do actually want?

Nope. When you refresh everything changes.

Except sometimes nothing changes except the order on the page. I had that happen the first day of my order window.

I'm obsessed with hair products and I got everything I wanted. Took a few tries to get the booboo cover ups, super excited for my first box nonetheless.
post #87 of 203
Is their shipping usually wonky? I swear my box is circling my state. Lol
post #88 of 203

I just ordered mine! I'm excited this will be my first box. Me and my mom are sharing it so we each picked 3 products.

 

I got the:

-Macadamia Hair Masque *So excited. I've seen this in stores and I really wanted to try this! I know its a foil packet, but I have super short hair so that doesn't matter*

-Nelson Beverly Hills Argan Oil Shampoo. *I've been in love with hair products lately because I'm trying to revive my dead hair, and I know argan oil is good, so I'm excited to get this*

-Emani Minerals Foundation primer and hydrating. I'm just so excited to try this! I've seem this in past boxes.

 

My mom gets:

-The mark lipgloss in Blow Kisses

-The loose eyeshadow in Medal of Honor

-Yes to Blueberries Firming eye treatment.

Yes, we have a theory for each of our boxes. Some think they come by foot, others by paddle boat, I'd say mine is coming by horse this month so, yeah it is wonky :P
