  1. :(i rec'd mine today. I have been purchasing these for about 5 years so I jumped on the pre-sell. I didn't see the list of products until this was posted for sale and I was worried when I saw how short the product list was. And what the products were. I was right to be concerned. I am very disappointed - box is the same size but it's just barely half full. this used to weigh 13 lbs. and now it's about 5 lbs. so we paid the same for half the amount. and with 3 exceptions these are all mass market products. At least I can use most of them and use the leftovers for holiday gift bags for my nieces. doubt I will buy this again unless the next 2 boxes show improvement. I didn't think anything would disappoint me more that the near demise of the Allure free stuff giveaway but this beats that. guess the new management at Allure doesn't like giving deals to subscribers.
  2. Late to the party with this - I have rec'd the beauty box since 2012 and didn't get the red-carpet beauty bonus gift. When I tried to email customer service to find out why I kept getting emails to subscribe & missed out on the awards box, I rec’d a message that said I didn't have an account. Thank God I keep old emails - I found my account number and a copy of the email that provided details of the Beauty bar transition to ALLURE and called customer service. I was told that 900 red carpet boxes were given to a random selection of subscribers. Since I wasn't considered an ALLURE customer I assume I was never eligible. Customer service did have all of my info minus my charge card number; I just wasn't THEIR customer. I signed up and did get some happy New Year samples this week so I am thinking that is either a startup gift on someone felt guilty. BTW - Thrills box subscription invites were sent on April 7th last year. I posted a request for info on the allure FB page and had no answer. Googled allure thrills box and nothing new there either
  3. THIS WILL NOT DELIVER TO ME TODAY UPS MY cHOICE STILL SHOWS DELIVERY TODAY but the package was never shipped. now i am getting a message that says:A UPS shipping label has been created. Once the shipment arrives at our facility, the tracking status will be updated.
  4. will receive 4 days prior to the sale and i happen to live in NY so i get next day delivery. i wasn't so thrilled with some of these items but i have a big family and my nieces go crazy when i re gift at holiday time.

  6. I just received a UPS notification that my pre-ordered May box will be delivered tomorrow. My credit card was charged today as the box shipped from CT
  7. i was able to get in the presale this year .. that will make my giveaway day at the office much saner. the link for Tuesday April 28th is :http://www.allurebeautythrills.com/ this starts at 12 noon on the 28th.... i have been trying to locate the product list i saw when i reviewed the contents when i paid for the pre- sell. I don't recall seeing any high end brands. I am also looking for a more recent confirmation of the start time...in the old days these used to start at 12:01pm.... good luck everyone!
  8. nothing new on line yet so hoping you are right with Tuesday announcement. I usually get an email from ALLURE as well
  9. yeah, they really don't say much in advance any more since these became so popular. i have been getting them since the old days when they used to announce them with a full page ad in allure. Even when i could buy 2 this was the one usually only bought one of. There is only so much hair spray, dry shampoo and nail polish i can use. i have a huge family and i make gift baskets for them which they love. hoping to see upscale cosmetics this time around.
  10. looks like it's Nov 25 2014 just saw a post of allure's FB page that says this
  11. i have been doing occasional web searches since mid October nothing posted anywhere that i could find. The pre orders seem to get follow up emails with clues for those of us who were not able to pre-order. they sold these on Nov 19th last year and November 23rd the year before so i am thinking we will see something soon. Unless they moved it to a later date as they did the spring and fall boxes....
  12. I think they are focusing of the free stuff giveaways and IMHO they aren't great multi-taskers.. I subscribe and rec'd my august magazine on July 25th. I wish they weren't so secretive about these! in the old days they used to have an ad in allure well in advance of the on sale date
