  1. Got this box a couple of days ago and it was pretty good. I can't wait to use the two dishes to organize my dresser. I gave my mom the lipstick and the hair spray. I don't get the point of the necklace they sent. It doesn't look like snowfall, it doesn't look like anything. Who would actually pay $28 for that?
  2. I bet the "giving" theme will be a pack of Christmas cards to put in presents.
  3. The spoilers are up on MSA and this looks like an awesome box and I am SO tempted. I'm trying to be smarter about my money so I'm majorly split righ now. Super tempted by the purse and the throw and chocolates. At the same time, I already have comfortable blankets and can buy cheaper chocolates. I don't need another eyeshadow palette at all, especially not a neutral one. And the diffusers sound great, but I don't know if it justifies the purchase. GAHHH! I almost hope it sells out before I make a decision and then I won't have the option to spend he $100.
  4. I guess I'm the odd one out because I was completely unimpressed by this box. The bracelet looks and feels quite cheap and I highly doubt it's genuinely worth $50 even if that's what the brand charges. The eyeshadow palette is nice but I already have several neutral palettes like it so I didn't need another one. The bowl is a boring item I don't need and the runner doesn't match any of my furniture so I won't use it. The toothpicks are not even worth mentioning.
  5. I'm REALLY tempted to get this box, but I'm trying to tell myself I don't NEED it. I don't need another throw and while I do need a new purse, I need a much bigger one. I'll wait for the third spoiler to decide. Hopefully it won't be sold out by then.
  6. I canceled my sub after the disappointing mystery box and unimpressive November box, but I decided to get the Black Friday 3-month deal. Hoping the next few months are better...
  7. Did anybody receive the Spark Joy book from the mystery box and want to to give theirs away?
  8. Not bad, but I already have several neutral palettes, so I'll probably sell this.
  9. Ugh. I got box 8. The only thing in it that'll probably be useful is the cell phone charger. I already have one from the September box, but I'll likely lose it at some point. I like the Cargo blush and I've been using it every other day, but I don't need a second one because the first one I received will probably take me three years to finish. I'll just be giving away or selling most of this.
  10. Mine should be arriving today, but I won't be able to see it until late evening when I get back from work. I hope I get box 5. The item I want the most out of all the things shown in these boxes is the Spark Joy book. I also think the heartbeat necklace is pretty, and I wouldn't mind getting the scarf in the box. I wouldn't mind getting box 2, but I already have four of those items, so I'd prefer to get a box with more things I haven't received.
  11. Ugh I impulsively bought this box and now I really regret it. The only one of these things I'd be happy with is the hair mask, which I already got in last month's box. It's a good product, so I wouldn't mind having a backup for when the one I'm using runs out, but it still would've been better to get something new. My box also weighs 6.2 pounds.
  12. Used up a few more things -Mask of Magnaminty by Lush (4.4 oz tub) -It's Raining Men shower gel by Lush (8.4 oz bottle) -Drunk Elephant TLC Framboos Glycolic Night Serum (1 oz. bottle) -one pack of makeup wipes from e.l.f. -pack of makeup wipes from Garnier -clear maybelline mascara (I didn't techincakly use it all up, but I used it pretty frequently and it was expired so I threw it out). -Deluxe sample of Sabon shower oil that I received from Glossybox
  13. I'm pretty happy with this box. It's been raining a lot lately where I live, so I'm glad to have the umbrella. I'm always excited to get a book, and I've heard good things about this book specifically. I've also heard a lot of great things about the makeup eraser and I was thinking about buying it, so it's really convenient that I'm going to get it in a box. The thing I'm least excited about is the shower oil, because even though it sounds like it smells really good, this is the type of thing that sounds better for a jacuzzi instead of a shower. But otherwise, I'm satisfied with everything in the box.
  14. I canceled my Ipsy subscription so I didn't get this month, and I can't say I feel that I missed out on anything. It feels like Ipsy includes a lot of the same products and brands that other subscription boxes send out. I get that this is probably because these brands are trying to promote themselves, but it gets a little frustrating when you see that a bunch of popular sub boxes have a certain brand for several months in a row. I've already gotten a few of the products in this month's selection from other boxes: the Briogeo conditioner (I got this in a sample size from Sephora Play in May, and this month I got the full size from Popsugar), the Eyeko eyeliner, and the Living Proof treatment. I also got a sample size of the Belif product from Sephora (not the sub box, but as an extra from a purchase I made) and I've gotten a couple of samples of the Too Faced lip injection product as a bonus gift in a couple of different purchases. I didn't get the "extreme" lip injection project from Too Faced, just the regular one, but even that one annoyed me with how much it stung so I don't think I would like the extreme version. I think Ipsy is a cute service, but it really needs to branch out and start including a better variety of brands. There are brands that I repeatedly see on Ipsy, and it just gets annoying.
