This will be my first box.  Do these ship at a regular time (unlike some boxes, cough, Quarterly)?

They ship the 3rd week of the month and I don't remember any being late. Once they were a little early.

I received my shipping notice and the box is now up in my account. Looks like we aren't getting the Orgins masks, but still the Maskimizer. I'm ok with that. I read a review in USA Today and she did receive the Orgins masks. Wonder why they changed it.

How can you tell that?

If you are logged into your account on the app, click on the drop down and Play is under my beauty bag. On the desktop, click on your account and it's on the right under beauty bag. It shows the items we are receiving. I don't think the box shows up if it hasn't shipped yet.

I got my shipping email today too.  The box contents are loaded on my account also.  I haven't been this excited for a sub for a while!  I can't wait until it arrives.

I just checked mine and it doesn't show anything yet so that must mean it didn't ship yet.

My box has also shipped and my box page has loaded on my account. I was starting to worry a bit even though I know they ship later in the month.  I'm really looking forward to that Bite lipstick I just wish it wasn't in the color Kimchi. Hot pink is not my favorite color especially in terms of lipstick. If I like the formula I'm probably going to pick up some other shades. I've had my eye on Taro, Gingersnap, Verbena, Molasses, and Kale. When it comes to Kale I here the song playing in my head "my minds telling me no but my body, my body, is telling me yessssssss". I'll wear it when I wear my leather shorts.

I saw some May box photos on Instagram and it seems like we will be getting 2 other mask foil samples from Origins. But they are not listed online, I think because they are foils. My box will be here soon, I can't wait to play with the goodies :-)

Really looking forward to this box! I can definitely see this helping me cut down on the money I spend at Sephora because it seems like they're going to be sending us relatively new products, so it'll help me try stuff out before jumping on the bandwagon and buying the stuff.

 

I hope they send out the Milk Makeup Eye Marker in one of their future boxes.

Yessss. I'm very hopeful about this subscription. If they maintain the quality level and product variety, I'll stick with them. I know I may be in the minority on this, but I love the tiny lip product samples as I lose interest in colors and finishes very quickly.

I used a few of these yesterday:

* Bite lipstick is sooooo soft and smells amazing, pigment and staying power is great, but the color is oh so 80s. You know, 'let's disco!' kind :D

* Tarte lip crayon is super thin, kind of hard to handle. But color stayed so long. It's a nice, nude shade.

* There are no words for Korres. It smells amazing! I put it on before sleeping last night and I still smelled like wild roses when I woke up. It's not the oily-sticky kind of sleeping mask, I'll definitely get the full size. But if you or your significant other are allergic to fragrance or simply doesn't like rose scent, you should probably skip this mask.

* Brigeo hair mask was okay, nothing exquisite. But still it's a good size and it hydrates well.

 

I hope you all get your boxes soon. I can't wait to hear your thoughts and tips on how to use these best.

Surprisingly, I'm not impressed with the May box at all.  The only item I'll definitely use is the hair mask, and I've already sampled it and bought the full size.  I also may use the Bite lipstick, but the color seems really bright.

 

The Tarte lip crayon is tiny and super fragile, and the rose face mask contains oils, which break my face out.  The Origins is ok but I'll probably never use it, and I don't like the scent of the perfume.

I just got my box too. The lipstick is too bright for me so it's going in the circular swap pile. :) I'm most excited about the lip liner. I have other nude liners but I'm always looking to try new.

I got my box today too!! That lip liner is so tiny, I'm afraid it may break when I try to use it. Be careful when you twist it to come out as it doesn't twist back down, at least mine doesn't.

I wore the Bite lipstick to work.  The color lasted all day.  One weird side effect random people in the hallways kept saying hi to me.

    • My Netflix subscription is cancelled. I was only allowed the free month. I wanted so badly to watch a new show called Ares that came out Friday. I did not think I would get to see it before my subscription expired, but I did. I was able to watch it on the last day! I was so happy, because I'm not allowed to renew Netflix per my no buy rules. And I can't live with exceptions to my rules. Ares I loved and hated at the same time. I loved the cast, acting, sets, costumes, hair and makeup, exteriors, and story line. Ares is a great story about a poor and stressed college girl joining an Illuminati type of cult, in Amsterdam. But I hated all the gory horror, and they killed off so many interesting characters. The gory horror is hard to watch, and could be triggering to some. I know the gruesome elements are symbolizing something important in the story, but it's disturbing. The first episodes were good at developing the story, but at the end it was exhausting with all the violence. I think it would have been great as just a psychological drama. Still I'm so glad I got to watch it without violating my rules. Back to watching no buy videos on YouTube now. 
    • I didn't tryied the vitimin C serum cream for my skin, I think it very harsh when you are using it at your skin so it would be hard for me to have it I will try something else..
    • Today was pay day. I paid $22.90 extra on my credit card. I realized I'm now halfway done with my goal for the month - to pay $100.00 toward my credit card (including minimum payment). It's halfway through the month, so I am right on track! I made a $30 payment last week. I got deodorant, the only beauty item I need to replace. I ended up not getting the fancy new Secret or an Avon set, but just regular Secret Paris Rose from Dollar General. It was $5 - I thought that was a little high in price. I had this deo before during my No Buys, so it's a tradition. I didn't feel like spending extra or taking the time to order online. Too lazy to fill out the order pages! I sure am out of practice shopping! 
    • What am I wishing for right now? Yesterday I was looking at the Yves Rocher French website to see if they have anything new that might come to the US. I found something to love, but not a thing this time. In France, Yves Rocher has special salons. They have some fabulous sounding treatments. One I really fell in love with was an eyebrow treatment. They put eye patches under your eyes, then while those are on, they shape the eyebrows. After all is done, they apply an eye cream. That's what I'd love right now, and I suppose I could copy it at home with what I already have. 
    • It feels like it has been January for a long time, but we're only halfway through the month. There's still time to do a lot of things this month!  I have some empties! I finished my three DHC foil packets, the two mini micellar waters from my Yves Rocher Advent Calendar, and my Neutrogena Shampoo mini.  Now using up: June Jacobs Green Tea and Cucumber Shampoo mini Freeman Cucumber and Pink Salt Masque packet MAC Strobe Cream mini in Pinklite - This is a really nice cream that has a bit of pink color corrector and a bit of luminosity. It's great for a no makeup routine! Very pretty, and feels wonderful on the skin. I got it in an Ipsy bag.  I had the Freeman cucumber masque in my project use it up in January 2018. Now I have another one to use. There is a lot of product in the packet. It is enough for several weeks of use. But it is a clay masque, so it gets dry and messy in the packet. I recall having a hard time using it all up before. So I opened the packet all around the edges, and used a spatula to transfer the contents into an empty jar so it will stay fresh and be easier to use up. I'm looking forward to using it with my new masque brush! I will be having some fun masque and movie nights!
