  1. I don't think it makes any sense either. I know I am not going to fill out reviews when there is no incentive to do so. Nothing about this makes sense or seems right to me. I'm wondering what next months box will be like, but then again I don't feel like anything will change. I don't see how they can tailor it to our interests without reviews unless they start using the profile quiz.
  2. I just chatted with a birchbox CS rep as I have heard so many different stories as to whether we are only getting 5 reviews per year or 5 reviews period. I spoke with Catia and she said that it is for sure only 5 reviews period after July 11th (she made it clear that it would not be 5 reviews per year). She explained to me that they are trying to focus more on the reviews in order to help us get boxes that would appeal more to us. She said they want to use our reviews to help decide what products to put in our boxes basically. She also said after the 5 reviews are used up we will only be able to gain points by referrals and buying things in the shop. I personally don't understand only giving us 5 more reviews period. Why even bother with that? It just seems silly to me. Also, the points system is the main reason why I have stayed subbed to BB for so long. If the boxes don't improve in the next couple of months I am canceling.
  3. I really want to try this! I picked it up as an ipsy perk recently.
  4. I want the primer or the brow products.
  5. The whole thing is a mess. I'm just waiting to get an email saying that BB will longer be offering a monthly sub box. I am really disappointed about the new points system. I guess I'm going to go ahead and cash some points in.
  6. I got the Marcelle as well because that's the only mascara I hadn't tried yet and the curated box didn't really appeal to me.
  7. The second spoiler is an Ofra pro magnetic palette
  8. Overall, I really liked this box! The bite beauty lippie is a wild color, but I actually liked that it pushed me out of my nude/red comfort zone. I love the formula and I definitely want to pick up some more colors. The tarte lip liner was small, but it was so cute and I really liked it as well. I always like getting masks and I am in love with the rose smell of the Korres one! I liked the origins sample masks as well.
  9. I absolutely love champagne pop and I have two other Becca highlighters that I adore as well. Becca's blushes are very pigmented so I have to use a light hand when applying, but I love them! I will definitely be looking into getting this palette. They are also releasing an eyeshadow palette too.
  10. I'm not thrilled about my bag this month. I'm getting: Smashbox mascara (excited to try this) Hanalei Lip treatment (ok) Jelly Pong Pong Bronzer duo (meh) Aurora Gel Effect nail polish ( I continuously rate nail polish bad and still get it) Avene Micellar lotion cleanser and makeup remover (Ok)
  11. I have also tried the foundation and I love it! I keep meaning to try the blush, but then I never pick it up for some reason. I think it's because I'm stuck on the Too Faced blushes lol
  12. I will second the Kat Von D. I always reach for it when I need something full coverage. I suggest applying it with a beauty blender and use a light hand though because a very small amount goes a long way. I work 12 hour shifts as a nurse and that holds up through the whole shift.
  13. I am loving that snap bag!! I hope I get those face masks and a lippie
  14. I think I'll stay unsubbed for now. Nothing in this box excites me enough to resub.
  15. I'm getting bored as well. For a couple of months there the boxes were amazing and now I have high expectations lol I will stayed subbed for now though and see what happens
  16. I got billed yesterday as well. I can't wait to get the May box!
  17. I'm getting: Real Chemistry Luminous 3 minute body peel (didn't pick this as my PYS for a reason) Raw spirit fragrance ( I hate getting perfume samples) Eyeko skinny eyeliner (not exciting, but will get used) Coola white tea (My PYS) Davines ol all in one milk Davines ol conditioner Davines ol shampoo Not a good box for me this month, but at least I will have 7 products to review
  18. There are some pretty good spoilers this month, but I'm not gonna get excited until I actually see what's in my bag
  19. I am excited to get the MUG blush, but I just hope I get a color that will work with my skin tone. This box isn't overly exciting me, but I will use the blush, lip liner, and brow gel.
  20. For me it's just frustrating when you sign up and pay for something and then find out that you aren't getting what you paid for without any notice. It would have been completely different if Allure would have reached out to me and said hey we messed up and offered a solution, but instead we all had to find out through others on social media and we had to call and deal with CS to then find out we weren't getting a box. I wasn't mean to CS and I don't feel there is any reason to get ugly with CS. Those people are catching the brunt of all of this when it wasn't their mess up and they are just doing what they are told to do. Does that give them a right to be rude? Not really, but I would probably be ill as well if I kept getting chewed for something that was out of my control and something that I had no part in. Allure is just not handling this well at all. I honestly did not want an old box or a mystery box. That was a cop out to me to try and convince customers to stay with them. The whole thing seems very dishonest. After this I will never give another dime to Allure.
  21. I wonder what the MUG product is? I'm dying to see the spoiler. I just hope this doesn't turn into a situation like the Allure box is having now.
  22. I just called CS after reading the posts on MSA. I was told that new subscribers including myself will not be getting the May box. I cancelled right then and there and asked for my money back. I highly suggest that you call and make sure you are getting the May box if you subbed for this box.
  23. After reading everyone's comments here I emailed CS as well. I resubbed specifically for the May box and if I am not going to be getting that box I want my money back and I'm cancelling. That is complete BS to do that to subscribers.
  24. It looks like an Avene product. Maybe the micellar cleanser?
