Mine is supposed to be here on Monday as well and my order # was 1001
post #302 of 605

Wow that was fast, don't they usually take a while to ship?

Anyhow, I'm very impressed and can't wait to play with my new goodies on Monday yay.gif

I remember not having to wait that long for the Fall box last year. It's great to see they're so efficient with shipping.

Generally they come in the single digits of the month after the 23rd it kind of depends on what day of the week the 23rd is. There isn't much to do because they are pre packed boxes, they just slap a shipping label on them and out they go. Earliest I got one was the 2nd of latest the 7th, so there is some variation, and while they may not have the ordering process worked out, they definitely have a great shipping system in place. And only 10 bucks for shipping 10-12lbs of product is pretty great.

I had order #168 but no shipping email yet. Fingers crossed I get one soon, I'm excited to hear they are sending them out so quickly. Anyone else still waiting on their shipping email?

I'm so happy you found a way to get the box!  You deserve it after doing the packing/moving for your BF's apartment!  (I've had to do the majority of the organizing/packing/heavy lifting for our family's moves, and it is freakin' horrible.  Moving sucks)

 

Yay you!

Yes! thanks to the heads up from another wonderful awesome girl here, I found a blogger who bought two and turns out she is like 20 minutes away! what are the chances?! :D it was meant to be after all.

 

 

I told him, barring like a rodent infestation or other awful reason he is renewing the lease on this new apartment at least once. I can't handle packing every 11 months. arghhhh

I liked the old Allure Summer boxes better. They were more skin care themed. I still wear my old sunhat from one of the earlier Summer boxes. Looking forward to the Sephora sun kit.

post #310 of 605

Just checked my inbox again and found the shipping email! I totally missed that this morning (I was browsing for "allure" in the subject, so I totally overlooked the UPS part - no idea why, ha!). It's already been through a few states and should be here next week! I can't wait! 

 

When you get your boxes, you will have to post if you get any variations on the colors of makeup and nail products too. I'm curious if there will be any different shades sent out :)

For most of my twenties, I moved every year or so, and it was so nice when I bought a house and lived there for 15 years ... until we moved and then I had 15 years of accumulated junk to sort out and pack out.  Luckily, my husband works at home so he did most of the packing, but still -- moving is crummy.  So glad you got a box after all!

 

I got a delivery email yesterday.  My box (only one!) is spending the weekend at the UPS depot about 20 miles from my house and should be here Monday.  Thanks to you guys for posting the right link -- wouldn't have gotten it without you!

 

ETA:  I've be wondering the same thing, Cari.  The listing makes it sound like the same colors are in all boxes, but the order confirmation email said that they might vary.

Same here. That is one of the reasons I don't like UPS, no Saturday delivery.

post #314 of 605

And I cannot go and pick it up either because it is closed on weekends...

Thanks! I know I was like aww crap I helped hype it up too much and they sold out super quickly this time. 

But its all good! It's a little my fault I was at the airport at 8:59, and should have gotten on my phone and done it, but I was thinking I had at least til 9:30 so I just rushed back home to my computer instead. NEVER AGAIN.

 

 

 

I am also interested in seeing what colors they send out I am pretty sure that all of the past boxes I have seen have all had the same colors. I think they just put that disclaimer just in case.

Good to know. I tried looking for reviews of past boxes online to see if there were different colors then but they were mostly YouTube videos and I'm too impatient to watch people unbox things ;-) I'm really just hoping for a different Sation color since I got the same one in my Ipsy bag and am not a fan, but I can always send a dupe to my niece :)

post #318 of 605
I'm just hoping the pencil I get is a bright blue or green and not brown, black, or gray. But it seems like they pretty much have to send bright blue or green if they want this box to firmly be summer 2013 considering how big those colors are supposed to be this summer.

I got the other option of nail polish in my ipsy, and I'm pretty sure the only other possibility might be the other ipsy color, since they were both ipsy/sation branded polishes.

I am most excited about bit faker, since its a brand new color for the summer collection, and the blogger consensus is its the best of the 5! The swatches are gorgeous smile.gif I like that they are sending legit nail polish brands because its been only sation before, I think I have a red and a blue from previous boxes. They have finally added in orly, Sally Hansen and butters into the mix!

And I appreciate the break from John freida, I have gotten 3 boxes and all three had three products for a total of 9. Thankfully I can get away with the blonde and brunette lines since I have both smile.gif and curly stuff goes to the boy.

Actually now that I think of it this box has done a better job of an even selection of products, which I think contributed to it selling a lot quicker. There was t any single product (blonde specific, skin color specific) that turned away buyers.

Can't wait to get home to my Allure Beauty Box. I had to authorize shipment release from UPS as no one will be home when they deliver. I never have done this, so fingers crossed that there are no issues. My only other options would have been to either take a day off or pay $5 to have it redelivered to another address. Not a fan of UPS as they don't seem to be accomodating to people that work (i.e., no Saturday delivery, pickup locations not open late on weekdays nor open on weekends at all).

post #321 of 605

Just got my box, here are the color variations, and it seems that they ARE sending out different BL polish colors.

I haven't opened/swatched anything yet because I'm still deciding on what to keep and what to gift, so these are just stock photos.

 

Expand for pics (Click to show)

 

BL in Bobby Dazzler

 

 

PIXI Endless Silky Eye Pen in True Teal

 

 

Burt's Bees lip gloss in Spring Splendor

 

 

Sally Hansen polish in Jaded

 

 

Sation polish in Love at First Byte

 

 

Neutrogena Revitalizing Lip Balm in Healthy Blush

 

post #322 of 605

Of course the UPS driver did not leave my package at my door even though I authourized shipment release. I would understand it if I lived in an apartment building, but I live in a house and all other non UPS delivery leave boxes at my door all of times and I have never had an issue. Now I have to spend $5 to have the box redelivered to my work address and then I have to wait until Wednesday to get it and on top of that I will have to carry 12 lb of on top of the normal things I carry to take everything home. I live in NYC and use the subway to commute to and from home, so I'm not too thrilled to be carrying 12lb. I really wish companies would allow us to select which delivery service we prefer upon check out. I cannot stress how much I dislike UPS.

Thanks for letting us know!  Mine will be here in the next 20 minutes :-)

It's really pretty, but not for me, so I'll probably try to trade it.

post #329 of 605

I got my box, I'm not sure if this is allowed so I'm asking. Is there going to be a swap/sell thread? there's a lot out of the box I won't be using, like the butter london in bit faker, and the hair sprays. So if you're interested in buying them PM me. Also I wanted jaded and got back to fuchsia. So anyone wanting to swap those I am willing. (Sorry if this is against the terms I didnt check.)

post #330 of 605

I just swatched the Sally Hansen nail polish in jaded and I think it's very close to Tiffany's blue!

Here are my swatches against an authentic Tiffany jewelry bag.
