Birchbox November 2015 Spoilers

Recommended Posts

Oh good grief I opened my work email on my phone and it said I selected impress me, which I did for my non work email account...then I got a confirmation on my work email. What a mess Birchbox, why, why did you have to funk it up?!

Haven't received emails inviting me to choose, but I managed to log in on both accounts and do sample choice from my box pages. Chose the Impress Me eyeshadow stick on one, and the berry lippie on the other. Haven't received confirmation emails yet, but I took screen shots of each sample as it was confirmed on the box page....fingers crossed that this fakakta new system doesn't create more opportunities for screw ups with everyone's sample choice(s)!

I try to choose but nothing happens. Normally the page loads and says good choice. Now I am just sitting looking at the same screen no matter how many times I click on the stupid button.  :angry: As soon as I sent a crabby email I got my confirmation. I really hate this new system. I think they just want you to look at all the plus items and make an impulse buy.

I referred myself so I was hoping to get early access. No email yet and I've just got the spinning box when I'm on the site. This is aggravating because I was really hoping to be able to get one of the two colors I would actually use. I'm worried I'm going to get stuck with the red lipstick. I have so many already and I rarely wear them.

I was finally able to choose my sample.  But the little Birchbox "B" kept spinning and loading for a long, long time.  I just let it go and it finally loaded.

I rec'd my email @ 8:50EST but I've been yet to be able to get the page to load; whether I access via the email or directly from the site I simply get the spinning Birchbox logo that others have referenced. So annoying!!!

 

On another note, has anyone else heard/ read that the Tati box is the current welcome box for new subs? I wanted to get a second box this month but it would have been a new account so I didn't think I could avoid getting a welcome box; if the "welcome box" is the curated box then I'm on board. What I read is in the following article:

http://consumergoods.edgl.com/news/Birchbox-Launches-Its-Own-Makeup-Brand102786

(In the last paragraph before the product listings/ descriptions) it states that new subs until Nov 26th receive the Tati/ GlamLifeGuru box.

The page finally loaded for me but now EVERY option is showing as sold out?!! ...including the curated box. Obviously that's not accurate so I tried to just make my choice anyway & will see if I get a confirmation email. If I don't I'll email CS b/c I've already put too much time into this craziness.

Yes you can select the Tati box or the loc eyeshadows or lipsticks

 

 

Still no email over here, I did the referral. Also not showing on the customization page...

 

So is there an option to add on the Glam Life Guru box when you do PYS?

 

Just realized I wasn't clear, I meant in addition to, which wasn't an option at this point. 

 

Anyway, when I chose, it kind of lagged when I was trying to choose and I gave up and then later I got back on my computer and got a confirmation email saying I picked one. The color is one of the ones I was thinking about, but still, ugh.

I didn't get a sample choice email until 10:20 pm! I was able to still get my 1st choice though and got a confirmation email a min or two later.

I got the email last night and ended up choosing the eye shadow stick in copper color. I really wanted the curated box also but ended up going with the shadow.

I see that I received my sample choice email at 12;50 am this morning (yes. Birchbox, I am a night owl but still....). I was baking a cake last night and decided to check my Birchbox account around 10:30pm and the sample picks were up. I had to refresh the page once to get rid of the dreaded spinning "B" but I was able to chose the curated box. I received the confirmation email this morning.

 

Birchbox is probably working the kinks out of this new system because there were some problems along the way. Hopefully it will work better next month.

I want to hang out if you bake cakes in the middle of the night!

I was able to log in and make selections on my phone by going to the website, instead of using their silly emails.

 

I didn't see an option to purchase a tati box so I picked it for one of my boxes this month.

My husband logged onto my main account and was finally able to select my choice (Tati box) but I noticed I received the email at 11:30 pm.  I haven't been able to log on to the site through Chrome or Internet Explorer or their android app all day for my second account choice and the sitewide sale.  This is giving me anxiety!  Hello, my name is Emily and I have an addiction....

I got the email at 8:00 pm Central time last night. I logged in right away (on my ipad) and was able to make my choice.

 

The site was really slow just now as I was shopping the ACES sale, but my purchase did go through. I scored the Amika curler for $30. Added on a Dr.Jart mask, the free Comptoir rollerball in Vanille Extreme, and the mystery sample pack for a grand total of $36  :)

I tried to get through the link to the Aces sale but I couldn't get through. That's a great deal for the curler!

I still haven't gotten an email but I was able to pick by logging in. It let me pick on my new account also. I thought you didn't get a choice on your first box. I picked the rose gold shadow on my main and the berry lipstick on my new one. All of the choices were still available. 

 

Never mind I did get an email on my new account this morning. However no email or early access on my main account which is just sad. If what I wanted would have been out of stock I would have been peeved.

Your husband is a champ!

 

Mine works in a casino where there is also a Sephora, and I'm always sending him in there to pick up something or other, lol. It's just so much more convenient for him, and then I don't have to schlep out there. The girls working there love him and are always giving him cologne and face wash samples, and now at age 42 he FINALLY understands the benefits of exfoliation.
