Allure Beauty Thrills Winter 2016 *SPOILERS*

Recommended Posts

MSA posted spoilers for the holiday allure beauty thrills box.  Usually the box goes on sale either the Tuesday before or the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, if my memory is correct.  This one is light on the total number of items (18) and total value ($250) compared to the good old days, but in line with the last couple so it seems that this is the new normal.  Still well worth the $60 to me - I see over $70 worth of basics I'd have to buy anyway. 

 

Who else is going to pick one up?

This box is on sale right now...but apparently without the dermasilk.  I'm actually kind of annoyed because that product was in my "justification math".  Sure hope they replace it with something else!

 

Anyone else get one?  It's so funny to me that this thread is all crickets; I miss the days when it sold out in minutes and we used to compete to see who had the lowest order number!  Now I'm probably the only one who got suckered in (the wen and unwash got me).

I came here to look if I missed out, looks like I didn't and still on sale. I am gonna give myself until tonight if it is still available. I still have a big bag of freebies from IPSY GenBeauty event and splurged on French skincare that I have yet to open.

 

I so remember those days! With plenty of subscription boxes now, these kinds of sales are slowly dying. I googled where to buy, I was confused it's giving me the August box, wow! That hasn't sold out yet.

If you have the funds and want the august box, you can check a box when you order December to get August for $35, @iPretty949. (wasn't it $25 yesterday???)

 

Here is a link in case anyone else needs it.

Yes this was fun when people fought to order the box.  I did the pre-order this year.  I also saw the August box was on sale so I called and ordered another one.  It helps me to rationalize that I paid so much for the pre-order.  Averaging the two helps.  

I am wondering when the December will ship.  I received the August box but, have not received the December one.  Anyone get a shipping notice?

Argh, Allure is so frustrating!  This is the third box in a row that has had issues.  The last two had a product spill all over everything, so allure replaced the boxes and let me keep what I could salvage from the ruined boxes.  Then I just got a THIRD august box I didn't order instead of getting my December box.  I called and they said to keep it.  Getting so many extra boxes is stressing me out; I don't want them to think I am a scammer taking advantage of their excellent customer service, I just want them to get their act together and send everything right the first time!!!

A wee box arrived in the mail today. It's definitely underwhelming. And something in here stinks, but nothing has leaked. I don't even remember what was supposed to be in this thing. But there's a bonus nail file!

The coupon on the press on nails expire at the end of the month. Hopefully everyone will get their boxes soon. I'm going to have to put this thing outside until I can figure out where this stench is coming from.

I received my little box today too.  This year sure has been a disappointment and I'll never do the pre-order again.  - it's almost as if they didn't want to keep customers.

I still don't have mine - they sent me ANOTHER august box so I have four of those now. 

Trust me you are in better shape - the winter box had like 1/2 the quantity.  It was by far the worst box ever.
