Glossybox October 2016 *Spoilers*

Recommended Posts

Thanks for the info @@cskeiser!

 

Here is a pic. Looks like a good one. I'm on the verge of resubbing but I'm trying to be good and not.

I am trying to hold off and see if there is a black Friday deal..  Ir is not that far off.  I was so bad this month.  Birchbox, ipsy... my sephora ( which I will never get rid of), orglamix and probably resub to beautyfix this month.  .  After this, I will cancel all but Sephora and just try my best to wait for the black friday deals.

I'm not too excited about this month's. I'm pretty sure this is my last month in my year sub. I'll just use up my points for free boxes and I'm probably done with glossybox for at least a while. I much prefer my Boxycharm. 

 

Speaking of my year sub ending, it doesn't give me the option on the site to opt out of a renewal, but in the FAQ, it says it does.

I have another free box in Nov, and if a good deal doesn't pop up on black friday I am likely done with this sub. I honestly wish they'd pay attention to something besides age on the profiles. I really truly do not need any more super ultra hydrating old lady creams for my oily acne-prone skin, despite being over 30. Nor any more taupe eyebrow pencils as a redhead.

I just got my box, here it is:

Not too bad, three items are full size, the masks come in a 3 pack for $10 but we only are getting one mask in the box. I guess that's considered 1/3 product?

 

I got the milk cleanser, the facial oil and the lip and cheek product that were mentioned as early spoilers. The lip/cheek tint works more like a stain it has pretty good staying power, it's not that red either more pink that you would think.

 

I didn't get a lip balm item that Liz showed in the MSA spoilers.

 

I got a honey mask, I would have liked to try an blemish or lemon one that I saw others mentioned getting on MSA. I also go the root booster which is fine with me since my hair can use any boost it can get.

 

There was also hints about their holiday box, which is usually pretty nice.

Oh I wonder if that was what they were talking about on the MSA spoiler page for this box, they speculated it was a lip balm, I guess not.

Yes, it's the same item as MSA pictured, but not a lip balm...

    • Wow, so much I missed during my No Buy Year! I see Sephora has a new bag called Play! Smarts. Instead of a random set of samples, customers are given products around a particular theme. Also, an online class is provided. It just feels so organized, and maybe a way for me to actually use things from a box instead of letting them pile up. I wish I would have gotten the skin care bag for women over 50! Now on the site I see they had a complexion makeup bag, but it's out of stock. 😶 Does anyone know how often these come out? Makeup overwhelms me, so it would be good to practice on one area at a time. This speaks to me on many levels. I've actually never tried the regular Play! box. I got one of the luxe bags and really liked it. They had Peter Thomas Roth Hungarian Thermal Water Cream in the recent Play! Smarts box. I'm going to be looking out for the next one. Update: the classes can be seen on Sephora's YouTube channel. History of boxes so far: June 2018 - Glitter Eyes for Real Life - the inaugural box.  August 2018 - Superfoods Feed Your Face  September 2018 - Skincare by Age 30s, 40s, 50s.  October 2018 - K-Beauty: Skin Innovation October 2018 - Superfoods: Inner and Outer Beauty  November 2018 - Complexion Your Way: Dewey and Matte It should be time for a new one, no? Maybe it was test marketing for last year.  I recall when looking through magazines from the 1970s there was a mail order beauty club called The Butterfly Club. They would send a shipment for eye makeup the first time, lip makeup the next time, etc., so you could make yourself over little by little. I loved the ad. I have been unable to find the ad online. Anybody remember? I believe it was like Cosmetique Club.  I liked Birchbox Beta from 2017, where they sent kits based on a specific area. I got overwhelmed with all the choices they had, though. Could never decide which one to get, or should I get the regular box, or the curated box. 
    • I have a Pinterest board where I collect vintage cosmetic advertisements, mostly from the 1960's and 1970's. I love them! Here you can find vintage beauty boxes, like World of Beauty Club, and Harper's Bazaar Beauty Box, with illustrations by Andy Warhol. There are vintage celebrity makeup lines, like Zsa Zsa, and wonderful ad campaigns like Olivia Hussey for Yardley, during the time she played in Romeo and Juliet. Also boards that will take you on a shopping time machine to great stores of the past like Woolworth's (I've got the makeup and lunch counter covered) and Biba! I even have Alice Cooper's Mascara line! https://www.pinterest.com/beautyclub6080/
