Beauteque Beauty Bag: New Korean Cosmetics Subscription *May Contain Spoilers*

Recommended Posts

I am still going to get the grey, because I am going to try and re-purpose it as an eyeliner - haha

 

I like the color of it in the swatch.

Oh, I like the look of these products! I'll get the same as everyone else! ^^

I'll try using the grey one as an eyeliner! I'm not a brow product fan! ^^

beauteque just offered 3 different types of bags - New Year New You - 20, 30 and 40 dollars

 

full sized items

$20.00 - $46.00 value 4 full sized items

$30.00 - $66.00 value 5 full sized items

$40.00 - $76.00 value 7 full sized items

 

they also ask you your skin tone & skin type, so looks like a little bit of customatization

 

Shipping costs vary, based on bag & country.  If you purchase the 40.00 one and are in the USA, it is free shipping.

 

I purchased the 40.00 one.  I figure memebox is not tempting me, so I am going to give beauteque some business :)

These bags look really tempting!! Although my fiance is still looking for a job (ughhh it's been months now- th job market is awful!) so I think I have to pass on anything that is a complete mystery. It's why I've avoided Memeboxes lately too- can't risk spending money on stuff that I won't like/can't use etc.

 

having said that, I think this is still a great deal- especially since you can customize it by your skin type etc. I can't wait to see what everyone gets!

Thank you! He's had a few interviews but nothing has panned out yet. It's been tough on my kbeauty budget LOL- especially since Beauteque has been really banging out the bags lately! I am really tempted by these mystery ones because we can customize them to skintype as well as price point! If I can pick up a few extra hours at work next week I might just snag one!

I'm so tempted by the New Year New You bag since we can customize it.  For skin types/concerns, one of the options is "anti-aging."  Makes me want to buy it and just stick my entire face in the bag!

The new bag is actually tempting me. Feel like I need to give Beauteque a chance, but until the Canadian dollar gets a bit stronger I need to take a break from mystery products. It's too pricey to take a chance on items I won't like.

My Milk bag is arriving tomorrow. The new bags sound interesting although I am on a no buy. I also worry that I won't be able to figure out the ingredients and whether it bothers my rosacea. Looking forward to my new items!

I'm also tempted by the New Year's bags but... My Milky Bag saga continues.

 

As most of you know the owner of Beauteque tried to contact me here about my shipment and bouncing emails. I contacted her through a different email account, she apologised, was really nice and told me - as she also stated here - that the bag shipped. It was on the 14th. So I was ok with that, but still got no tracking and the bag still didn't show up. So I contacted her again yesterday asking for tracking info and got it today. And guess what - the bag shipped on the 21st.

 

I may be told now that I'm being negative again but, I'm sorry, it's just not the right way to conduct business and treat customers. I can understand delays, problems with stock and communication but when sb actually states publicly and privately sth that obviously isn't true... Then I just don't get it. And I certainly will have some trust issues with the company.

 

I'm glad it's working for so many of you but sadly, I just don't think it's a place to order for me.

@@Paulina PS  you should probably let them know this.   I would have emailed them back and asked why I was told one thing but reality showed another thing and let them know how this affects your dealings with them as a business.  that isn't right that they told you that it had been shipped when it wasn't.   I was always told mine would be shipping,  not that it had shipped

 

I have never had issues with beauteque that couldn't be resolved in a reasonable manner and I am sure they would want to hear your feedback and see how it can be resolved.

@@biancardi you're right and I know I should email them but I'm just tired of all that. My health issues make me overwhelmed with anything stressful at the moment and I just wish to get my order and not think about it anymore. I don't want any compensation or anthing really but I just feel sad about it. Maybe I can't deal with some things reasonably myself atm, I don't know.

 

I hope I'll manage to muster some energy and contact them about it again.

(((hugs)))) to you, @@Paulina PS.  When something is supposed to be fun and enjoyable and instead it stresses you out, I understand why you don't want to deal with it right now.

 

It takes the joy out of getting your goodies - I know, I've had some major health issues and for me, my patience level was so thin when I was going thru some stressful times.   I also didn't want to deal with things that made me unhappy or sad either too...

 

I hope you will get some relief with your health and feel better soon..

@@biancardi thank you so much for the kind words.

 

 

I get frustrated and all teary so easily now. I broke my arm over 3 weeks ago, my elbow is fractured in 2 places, I was in plaster for 3 weeks, now there's an aluminium brace for the next 3, I'm swollen, bruised, can't move normal or wear any normal clothes. And I still have to go back to work on Monday, to do 10 hours of teaching the first day cause it's the end of semester here and I can't afford any more leave.

 

 

Totally off topic and self-piteous but I just wanted to explain why I feel that frustrated with all my issues atm.

Promise not to go on any rants anymore ;)

@@paulina, I hope you feel better soon, and I can understand your frustration with Beauteque so far.

 

While I can't say I was wowed at all by the January sub bag, it was OK.  I'm loving the Milk Bag, and since Memebox's "big restock party" all week long has been a total bust as far as I'm concerned (oh, and now Memebox is deleting negative reviews on their site and manipulating others to make everything look like a 5-star box, so I am really fed up with them), I have some K-beauty mad money to spend.  Memebox sure as hell isn't getting it.

 

The NYNY box looks so tempting.  Anti-aging party on my face.

 

Edit:  Just checked the $40 NYNY box again -- 32 ounces, wow!  Two pounds of stuff.  Compared to the last few boxes from M. that I got, that's a LOT.

OK, I was really curious about the weight so I looked at all three bags:

 

$20 -- 4 items, 16 oz.

$30 -- 5 items, 28 oz.

$40 -- 7 items, 32 oz.

 

So the big weight jump is between the first and second tier.  The fifth item weights 12 ounces?

 

I know I am WAY, WAY over-analyzing this.  Will prob spring for the $40 bag since it has 7 things and free shipping.  And I'm a pig.

Yep, it should be fine, the fractures are healing well according to my doc and I'm able to move my arm quite well as for the circumstances. It's just really painful and uncomfortable and frustrating. And I'll probably have to exercise it some once it heals to make the joint and muscles extend fully.

 

No worries, though, I'm quite positive it's gonna be ok, but it's sometimes really hard to remember about it and then I get whiny and unhappy ;)

 

Thank you so much for your concern and understanding  :flowers:

As far as I'm concerned, you are completely within your rights to post your experiences here. And I *always* want to know about both positive and negative experiences people have with a company.  You have absolutely legit reasons to be unhappy, and you have as much right as anyone to talk about that, even though it's not sunshine and roses.  It shouldn't *have* to be sunshine and roses.  I'm also very sorry to hear about what you've been going through.

As I was one that was a little surprised at the negativity towards beauteque earlier this week, I wish to just explain why I stated it.  It wasn't to shut anyone down with their experiences at all.

 

I was voicing my opinion but in no way was I telling folks what to post.  I just think we have been burned by Memebox so much and Beateque was getting a raw deal with just one bad experience.    I was just trying to say, reach out to them, I've had good experiences with them via CS.

 

I also had a delayed bag and I had to contact them a few times to find out where it was.  We shouldn't have to do that - if there is a backorder, then tell us proactively.   Also, if they told Paulina one thing about the shipping date and it turns out it was shipped out a few days later, an apology to Paulina would be the least thing to do here.

 

I am all for criticizing companies, but I felt that because of our bad memebox experiences, beauteque was getting piled on here.   I also believe that if you don't let a company know why you are unhappy, then they cannot change their behavior properly.  A great company listens to customer complaints without being defensive.   It wasn't to shut anyone down and I am sorry if that is how it came across.

 

forgive?

I grok all your reasoning here, and actually agree somewhat with the Memebox carryover effect!  I mean, just in terms of myself, and how skeptical and suspicious I am about mess-ups.  Meme has scarred me, haha.

    • Tinder's basically the best option out there other than social media which is usually iffy, and Lex is another good one, that's if you're gay at all.
    • I used Tinder some time ago, but I don't really like it these days. There are so many bad and fake profiles... I like using some other dating services. I am sure that you will find something interesting and really working for you, good luck with it
    • I'm having some backsliding, but still trying! I'm really seeing progress using my full size cleanser, toner and moisturizer. I decided to change my routine. I have been experiencing for a while now some strange kind of boredom. When I'm not working, I really don't have fun any more. I don't get chores done either. I'll just get up, and the time just passes, and my room will be messy with a pile of laundry, and I don't get it done, and it makes me feel bad. I can't focus on reading a book or watching a show or movie. I always feel my weekend is a waste. I'm not having fun when I'm lazy like this either; it feels awful.  I decided to change my routine and fight this state! I told HR I wanted to work on Saturday every week and have Thursday off every week, which makes both my work weeks and time off shorter periods. I'm hoping it will be easier to make the most of time off when it is one day instead of an entire weekend. And I might feel less tired when the work week is broken up. I also made a list of all I hope to do in my days off. I want to have my laundry done, cleaning done, write in journal, post on Makeup Talk [I do enjoy writing], watch a show or movie and read a book, and best of all use a face mask on the two days off!  I'm not using all my face masks at all. I got a flyer from Yves Rocher with some awesome new face masks and scrubs. I really want one, but not until I've used up all the masks I have now! The Thursday and Sunday off will be my special beauty days to use up products with extra relaxing beauty routines.  Last night I went out with a friend of mine and my brother to Family Dollar. While she was shopping, I looked in the beauty section. I enjoyed it. I saw some things I wanted, but did not get, because I don't need them. I saw: Aromatherapy diffuser set with a little cherub. Pretty makeup brushes. I already have a ton. No reason to wear makeup because I always go out with a face mask. I should make an effort to use eye makeup though. I need to care for myself better and put effort into myself.  Skin care set with cleanser, toner, and cream in one box, only five dollars. I think the cleanser had shea butter. I wanted to try it, but have tons of skin care going back to 2017 I need to get through!  After we took our friend to eat, we came out and had a nail in our tire and a flat. The roadside assistance man was really nice though. I got a Car Care credit card and an appointment to get it fixed today. I am backsliding with my debt snowball, but I'm not going to let it stop me. I'm just going to keep going and start over with whatever debt is smallest, being diligent with No Buy/Project Use It Up.  I have been more productive this morning, started laundry and cleaning and wrote in my journal. The more I try the better it will get! Then maybe I won't order takeout so much. I'm kind of looking forward to going to the auto shop, because it will be something to accomplish, and then I'll go to lunch with my brother (less expensive than getting Door Dash).  The first mask I will be using up is my smallest sample, Glamglow Supermud Clearing Treatment. I have many mini masks from Ipsy, etc. and I believe two full size masks and two full size scrubs, and a box of sheet masks.   
    • I guess you should exercise and eat healthy for it!
    • You absolutely tip the student!! Regardless if they have been in the business for 20 years or they are just starting out - they are putting their time and effort into giving you a gorgeous cut/colour that you will love
