PopSugar Special Edition Resort Box

Recommended Posts

It just appeared in my mailbox.

 

I'm thinking that the company (RB of McD) just wanted to use PopSugar for publicity. So, they decided to make a really really cheap copy of one of their real bags and give it to them to include in the box. So, apart from frustrated customers, they get FB posts and other publicity for free even though this version of their product totally sucks. And, based on the fact that usually the quality of the items in PS LE boxes are high, I'm just assuming that PS didn't even know that they were getting such a cheap copy version instead of the real thing.

 

I'm still thinking if I should contact PS CS again to tell them my mind. I won't ask for another replacement as I really don't need any more crappy bags, but just so they know. (Though I'm sure they do).

 

Here is a pic FYI:

 

The zipper does look neat this time around, but that thread .. come on! (It's sewn in on both sides .. not sure if I can cut it of without making the whole thing come apart).2q3y80y.jpg

I just got my replacement clutch today and while the zipper works better , the leather on each side is different colors! Oh well...

I still haven't gotten my replacement bag but my husband finally saw the crappy one I got already and keeps saying it looks like one of those bank deposit bags (like when I worked retail and had to drop off night deposits). I hate to say it but I think he's right!

I just received an email saying that since my Resort box shipped late they were sending a vbeaute lip gloss in my May box. (If you're not a subscriber they would send it to the address your Resort box was sent to.) 

 

Super excited! Love vbeaute!

Funny, my dad saw it and asked the same thing. I looked at him like he was clueless and explained it was a foldover clutch. (I do see the resemblance but I also like giving my dad a hard time.)

 

I actually love it; mine didn't have any quality issues and it's a great size and color. I've been using it a lot when I go out for quick errands and don't want to put my card holder and phone into my pockets.

I truly loved their monthly boxes, but this special edition was highly disappointing to me. I could have gotten two of the monthly boxes for the cost of this box and had double the enjoyment.

I got the replacement clutch too (no notification, it just showed up), and it was slightly better sewn but it's still not that nice. It's just sort of cheap looking. And now that I have bank deposit bag in my head, that's all I'll see!

I received replacement for the bracelet and the clutch.  Both are so much better.  I received the all navy clutch.  The front leather is smoother and the leather on the back has the lavender tinge.  I am wondering if these clutches are supposed to have the 2 toned leather.  The tan one has the stamp on the textured side and it would have been so much better had it been on the smoother side.  I am going to gift the all navy one with the other items in the box.  I may end up using the tan one.  But, I won't use the clutch as a clutch but more as a bag to put in a bag.  For right now it will sit in a drawer.

They will be sending me a replacement clutch - we shall see how it goes. I don't have high hopes based on what others have said.

 

For those who got the chain to go on the clutch...what did you think of the chain? I love the lobster claw clasp but I felt the chain itself looked kinda cheap. I feel like the chain is a brass or rose gold color while the clasp itself is gold. Am I the only one who feels this way?

 

Overall I am disappointed with RB of McD. I was so excited initially... the bags on their website look lovely. I will say that the customer service seems really great but the products are so "meh". I doubt I will ever buy a leather good from them based on the bank deposit bags...I mean clutches we received.

I got my replacement clutch today (no notification, all navy). It's okay. Better than the first. I still don't really know what to do with it. Also received the email about the gift for the the late shipment... that was awfully nice.

i too received my replacement clutch in all navy and I noticed that it had two types of leather and it made me look at my old one in tan/navy and it also had two different pieces of letter and its a different size.

Does anyone know how to get to the swap thread for PS on this new site layout? I really want to try to swap for more of that yummy taffy.

I got my replacement (all blue) clutch today. It's way better than the two-tone one I was sent in the box. The leathers are still different colors of blue/bluish-purple, but I might use some day...

Is everyone getting the lipgloss, or only people whose boxes were shipped late?

 

Also, I hate this new format

 

I don't know. I'm assuming only the people whose boxes were shipped late and that they're emailing everyone who'll be getting it.

 

Mine was a week late and I got the apology note and actually sent CS a message asking if they were offering anything because the boxes were late and was told that unfortunately they weren't at the time. I think it's great that they're trying to make up for it. I'm sure many people were counting on the box arriving in a timely manner so they could gift the box or items in it.

I did receive the email (my box was the late shipping). I also received my replacement bag today and it was much better than the first one.

Kudos to PS for giving us a "Im sorry, we were late email.." - I really didn't expect anything & I think it was beyond generous of them. I do like the brand, has anyone tried this particular product yet?

I think everyone is getting the gloss; I wasn't one of the people with late shipping and I got the email.

Has anyone who did not get a May box received their lip gloss yet? I cancelled my regular subscription so it would have to ship separate but haven't received anything yet.

    • There is no one foundation that works for all skin types. It is really important to choose a foundation according to your skin type- whether that’s oily, dry or combination. If your skin type is dry then you should use a hydrating or creamy foundation that can moisturise your skin as well provide a full coverage. If your skin is sensitive and prone to acne breakouts you should use an oil free foundation that doesn’t irritate your skin. This can be one with a stick formula, powder formula, serum formula etc. It will be even better if the foundation is lightweight too. In order to find your perfect foundation its best to visit a store and ask for foundations according to your skin specification. You can try a few and then settle on what works best for your skin type and provides the kind of coverage you want. Hope this helps!
