Spring 2016 Box of Style Zoe Report: Spoilers!

Recommended Posts

This box is a total win for me. RZ is great at picking things of excellent quality and value. I love every single thing in this box. Lovely bag with very nice leather and the bracelet is delicate and beautiful. I love Klorane and am very happy with this box!

So I finally rec'd my box today.  

 

I really wanted to like the purse and I DO, but I think it's too juvenile for me.  I mean by that I am just not the target market for the "festival" look.  It's on ebay as we speak.

 

I got the silver bracelet and I do think it's much prettier in person but again, not my style.  It's keeping the bag company on ebay.

 

I received the Jouer Eyeshadow in marble which is a pretty gray.  Unfortunately, I have really deep set eyes so I cannot pull off darker shadows.  It's now an ebay trifecta.

 

I will totally hang on to and use the earbuds.  They are nice quality and I love that they're bamboo.

 

I have oddly become a fan of dry shampoo especially when it's a lazy Sunday and I can't be bothered to shower.  Happy to have another can (I think I have about 9 now *LOL*).

 

The blotting papers will be perfect for vacation this summer and I will put aside the La Mer for when my current serum runs out.  Looking forward to trying it, and like I said before, hoping to hate it because of the price tag.

 

I am still not disappointed even though I am selling the top 2 items. I feel this box has a better perceived value than winter, but for me Fall was the winner so far.

Ok So my gift card showed up today, lucky that no one threw it in the trash. I have already redeemed it like a hole burning in my pocket. My box is somewhere in GA so hopefully it will be here soon. But it gets better I forgot to cancel my quarterly after I purchased a yearly so I have another box coming. Just sent them an email to cancel that one for next time. The purse and ear buds will be put on ebay for sure but depending on the braceletbcolors I will either keep both or sell one same with the eyestick and I Wil be greedy with the LeMer.

I actually upgraded to an annual sub and am a little disappointed I haven't received a shipping notice (and nothing in Fedex) and also live in SoCal...

also there is no way I am going to use the gift card- everything is way too expensive so if anyone wants my code I am happy to give it to you- just PM me

Got the box today.

1. I was pleasantly surprised by the bag - the leather is soft and nice, the bag seems high quality and it's super cute. Small. But cute. I'll definitely use it.

2. I am actually most excited about the earbuds - yes, I have a few but they are lower end and my son keeps "stealing" them. So now I have one of my own ;-) they seem super stylish and nice.

3. Got the black eye shadow which I never wear - can't see how I can pull it off since I have a light skin and green eyes. :(

4. Got the silver bracelet - I never wear silver - but maybe I can switch it up? or gift it. It's nice though.

5. This is my favorite dry shampoo - score.

6. Blotting tissue - will probably never get used.

7. La Mer - so tiny! Happy to try it though.

 

Overall I think this is a great box - I wish I got different variations but it is still better than the winter box IMO (except for the ring. Loved the ring).

Got my box this morning and I really like it!

 

The purse is great for me as yes, I go to festivals and outside events often. I normally carry a massive bag but this will be nice for such occasions. It feels well made and it closes tightly when the drawstring is synched. 

 

I'm gifting the bracelet to a soon to be 15 year old as I think she will appreciate it more than me. I've been wondering what to give her and was thinking the purse would be nice but this actually perfect instead!

 

Ear buds are cute! I have nice bose ones but these will be my back ups. 

 

I tried out the shadow stick today and love it! I got marble (charcoal) and it went on super smoothly. I have use tarte shoulder eyes shadow sticks every day and this feels similar if not more silky.

 

I'll happily try out all the rest of the items and am actually out of dry shampoo so that works out!

 

Fun box and useful box! Now I'll be waiting for the pop sugar box resort box!

I have not received the $50 coupon nor a shipping notice and live in MN.  So I was feeling a little put out.  But today I got a notice acknowledging the late notice and saying that my box was being expedited at no cost.  I still don't know when it arrives but nice to have them tell me instead of me asking them.

 

That is also my favorite dry shampoo.  So score on at least one item before I even get the box.

I just got an email from them this morning stating that my box hadn't shipped yet but that they were upgrading it to expedited shipping.

My tracking info finally showed up last night. My sister got that delay email too and her box is coming to the same city in SoCal as mine. Too bad they didn't add on a bonus item like they did last summer when some boxes were delayed.

My box came today and while its full of fun and lovely items its not favorite box. 

 

The bag is beautiful but its super tiny- I would have loved a little brown leather back pack instead but it is lovely just not sure how useful it will be its a tiny size and the strap seems a bit long for me 

 

The eyeshadow stick- is creamy and slides on nicely however I got a little blueish gray color that just isn't wearable for me it also is rather sparkly which i wasn't expecting.  Wish I got another  color--- if I ever get invited to an 80's party though I ll be all set ;) 

 

Bracelet- I got the silver and turquoise one- this is beautiful but it seems small (I have tiny wrists and it fits better than most bracelets still a little big) hope this one fits everyone.  Glad this was in the box and super happy with the silver one. 

 

Earbuds- the earbuds looks lovely have not actually used them yet hope the quality is great.  Not sure what makes them worth $100 though definitely would not spend that kind of money on earbuds. Fun to have something I d never buy myself 

 

Dry shampoo- needed some new dry shampoo so excited to try this brand 

 

Blotting papers- I was just about to get some from sephora great to keep in my purse or car during the warmer months

 

The LAMER sample- love the little pouch this was packed in.  Excited to try it but hope I hate it way to pricey!  I laughed when I saw the little applicate though it reminded me of a little bubble wand lol 

 

A lovely spring box (loved the little hello sunshine sticker) and had so much fun unwrapping each item.  Not everything was my taste but will make lovely gifts overall a fun box.  Hope everyone enjoys their goodies!

My box also arrived early and it sounds like we received the same color stick and bracelet (although I've not seen anyone post that they received the gold version).  Both of these I will be giving to my nieces since they are not my style.

 

The handbag is very small but I think that it will look cute with jeans.  Not very functional for me since I tend to lean towards "suitcases" but it's cute enough that I will give it a try.  I would have preferred the shade in the picture which is slightly lighter.

haha suitcase! I agree though the shade is darker than described I definitely would not refer to it at as caramel.  As a whole the bag is not really for me I too am a suitcase lugger lol and as frequent subway rider I like bags with more of a closure but I m sure others will love it is super cute.  

 

I would have loved to receive that cream/pearlish color eyeshadow stick in the pamphlet because the formulation seems awesome.  I was surprised I didn't see a page in the booklet on the lamer  ( did i miss it?) I know it was a little bonus but you think they d try to sell us on it a bit.  Oh well maybe its better I don't have more info. on that product lol

Anyone with renewing subscription NOT received their shipping notice?  I can't tell if only the annual subscribers are the ones receiving their boxes or if the majority have at least gotten a shipping notice.  I was billed but haven't heard anything.  Normally I get my shipping notice a day or two after the annual subscribers.  I don't mind waiting and don't want to bug customer service yet, but I feel like everyone else has their box already.

I'm in the same boat. Received the email this weekend saying it's delayed and they're expediting shipping, but still no shipping notice. Not sure if it's regional... I'm in the Chicago area.

Same boat here for both me and my friend...also in Chicago.

I'm in Oregon.  I hope you receive your box soon. . .for what it's worth, I haven't even received an email about delayed shipping.  I checked the website but there's no way to look at tracking/shipping.  

 

OOPS. . .sorry for the multiple posts.  A box kept popping up saying I had hit "post" too fast.  I didn't even think my post went through but sure enough. . .lol

I received shipping notice last Wednesday but it doesn't look like the box has moved since then.

I got my box this weekend and was happy with it in person. I do think RZ does such a nice job making it feel like a luxe experience. I love the individual wrapping and the info booklet. This box wasn't quite as spot on with my tastes as Fall and Winter, but I think that's to be expected that all of them won't be a home run, so I'm not mad about it :). I like the headphones, and I never would have bought any so fancy on my own, so that's a fun thing to have. The bag wasn't quite as small as I was expecting... So while I'm normally a suitcase bag person too, I'll make a point to actually go out without carrying all of my possessions in order to use it, which will push me out of my comfort zone!

 

I was secretly hoping that they would use our survey questions to personalize a bit - like since I filled out the survey saying my tastes ran classic, that I'd get the pale pink or black/charcoal eye liner/shadow... But I got the light blue, which is basically the only color choice that I don't think I can find a way to wear. So that was my only real "bummer" of the box... Maybe I'll see if there's some kind of You Tube video showing me how to wear it without sending me on an 80s flashback ;)

 

Oh, and I think it'll be interesting to see whether she continues to do a theme with each box... I've only been subbing since the Fall edition, but I thought Fall and Winter's theme were basically fall and winter... Even though I'm not a music festival person, I thought it was fun to see how she wove all these items around a theme, so it would be interesting to see that again with a different theme (maybe that has happened before and I didn't notice!)

No shipping notice for me either.  I sent an email to customer service as this is the 3rd time I will have received my box late.  Told them that perhaps it would be best to move the back of the line to the front of the line next time and that the consistent late shipping for certain customers was being discussed on the blogs.   I am really tired of getting my box 2-3 weeks and usually closer to 4 weeks after the first shipments.  I did get a $10 credit the last time it was delayed.

Yeah, i'm kind of stalking my email box looking for the shipping notice.  I've been subscribed since the first box and this is the first time I've experienced delayed shipping.  I mostly just want to make sure I get my box (that I wasn't overlooked somehow), so it's comforting to hear that I'm not the only one in this position.  I hope you hear back from them soon! 

I'll probably contact them in a few days, if I haven't heard anything. I wonder if perhaps they are gaining subscribers and it's harder to keep up with the demand.
