GlossyBox Subscription Box Review & Coupon – April 2015

This post may contain referral/affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

GlossyBox Subscription Box Review & Coupon – April 2015 Box

GlossyBox is a monthly beauty subscription box. They have the best packaging in the business, their products are usually deluxe-size or full size, and the value is usually really good too. The only issue with this box seems to be the late shipping – I would recommend just keeping that in mind and setting your expectations accordingly if you sign up for this box.

(Based on some of the comments on the February and March reviews, it also looks like GlossyBox is starting to send out more variations for subscribers each month, so this box may not be exactly what all subscribers receive for April).

GlossyBox Subscription Box Review & Coupon – April 2015 Info

Each box comes with a fold out card detailing the items included.

GlossyBox Subscription Box Review & Coupon – April 2015 Card

GlossyBox Subscription Box Review & Coupon – April 2015 Pouch

This box also came with a GlossyBox makeup pouch that matches the box art design. (FYI – the actual boxes with the art design are in limited supply this month, so once they sell out, subscribers will receive the same items in the standard pink box).

GlossyBox Subscription Box Review & Coupon – April 2015 Estee Lauder

Estee Lauder Enlighten Dark Spot Correcting Night Serum – .24 oz Value $15

Aerin Waterlily Sun Perfume – .3 oz Value $15

I reached out to GlossyBox, and they confirmed that all subscribers will receive these two items – as long as you subscribe to the April box before it sells out. (Once they start selling the “Classic” box that means that the April box has sold out). If you are a current subscriber, than you should be good.

I received this night serum in the October Sample Society box and I’m happy to have more!

The perfume packaging is beautiful, and while I don’t like getting sample vials in boxes, I love getting perfume minis! I like the scent too.

GlossyBox Subscription Box Review & Coupon – April 2015 Lip Tar

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Stained Gloss in Rythm Box – FULL SIZE! Value $18

This is a very pigmented gloss! It’s a bold magenta, and after the gloss goes away a good amount of the pigment stays as a stain. (It is also paraben, phthalate, and sulfate free).

Marrakesh Endz Split End Mender & Preventer – 1 oz Value $6

This is the one brand in the box that is completely new to me. I love that this hair product is free of animal testing and ingredients, plus also free of parabens, phthalates, dyes, etc. The formula is designed to repair split ends and prevent new ones. It’s a relatively lightweight cream, and didn’t weigh my hair down at all. I also like the scent a lot – I can’t figure out exactly what it reminds me of though. Maybe Beauty Protector hair products?

GlossyBox Subscription Box Review & Coupon – April 2015 Eyeliner

Julep Gel Eye Glider in Olive – FULL SIZE! Value $16

I was a little disappointed to see Julep in this box – just because I get all the Julep products I need in my Julep Maven subscription! That being said, this is one of my favorite Julep cosmetic products. The eyeliner goes on so smoothly, and I love all the shades.

Verdict: I think this is a fantastic GlossyBox. The value is about $70, and I’m happy with the sizes of all the products, and the brands featured. I’m not sure how much variation will be in the April boxes, but I’m happy to see that the serum and perfume samples everyone will receive are worth more than the cost of the box alone.

Oh – and the packaging deserves a mention too – it is so fun!

What do you think of this April GlossyBox? (FYI – GlossyBox 6 months subscriptions are still on sale on RueLaLa for a few more days too).

  1. I got my GB today. I bought it through the Rue lala special. My box is exactly like Liz’s, except my lip tar is bright orange. My TF gift card is good for 50% off. This is my first GB and I know understand all the praise about their packaging. Love the pop art box!

  2. I just got my GB. This is my first one ever. I have exactly the same as Liz’s box except my OCC lip tar is in the color Androgyne which is literally safety cone orange. Not a wearable color at all. Everything else is fine. I also got a “gift” card for Thu/Fri but haven’t checked it out yet.

    The box is okay. The perfume is a bit old lady for me. I got this as a one time purchase through Rue La La and probably will cancel. I’m also getting BoxyCharm this month. Will see how that compares.

    • LOLing @ “safety cone orange” — I know what you mean, it’s hard to believe anyone could pull off such a shade! I do really like the perfume though (maybe cuz I’m an “old lady”? lol The box it came in is super pretty too — stuff like that matters to me. Not thrilled with the EL lightening cream — I’ve used it before and it did nada for me. Everything else I like.

  3. Hi, I am wondering if any of the boxes had a brush for the OCC lip tar? In the photo card it shows one and even the directions mention a brush but I didn’t get one. Just curious

    • No brush was included.

      • Thank you Amanda. I didn’t think so since I didn’t see one in Liz’s box either but wanted to double check.

        • I didn’t get a brush either, and I was wondering about that. Glad some other gals brought up the subect, so I know it wasn’t just me.

          • My sister contacted Glossybox and they first told her there was supposed to be one and it would be sent out but then emailed her back to say it actually wasn’t supposed to come with. They did respond quickly to her first message and then followed up when they found out it wouldn’t be sent. I have had good luck contacting customer service as well as far as getting a quick response.

  4. I LOVE this month’s box! I was disappointed with February (I got the classic box) and March, but this one is wonderful.

    I got the same items as Liz, except my eyeliner is plum. I can’t wait to try it – I’ve been wanting an eyeliner in this color, and I’ve heard great things about this formula.

    Also, my OCC lip stain is called Jealous, which is a red orange. It looks colorful and really pretty for summer, but I prefer cooler tones so I’m thinking about swapping this one.

    The perfume smells great, I really like Estee Lauder, and I’m excited to try the hair product.

    Oh, and I also got the Thursday Friday card in my little makeup bag, good for 50% off. Not bad at all!

    I hope all future Glossyboxes are as good as this one.

    • My box is exactly the same as yours, Jealousy and plum. I haven’t checked the Thursday Friday website yet for giftcard value but when I went there quickly they offer 30% on the spot for signing up. After a rough start signing up for this sub I’m starting to enjoy it!

  5. I got the same box as Liz. I’m always pretty happy with Glossybox! It’s one of my favorite subscriptions along with BoxyCharm (which is always a great box!) on a side not I also received my FanFridayGiveaway winnings from Glossybox yesterday! 22 lipsticks, lip shines and lip glosses from Rituals Cosmetices! Thrilled!!! I couldn’t believe it. 🙂

  6. I got everything that you got plus a $95 gift card to thufri.com so anyone that thinks they are giving away specials to people that write blogs is wrong! I have had one great box after another from glossybox.

  7. I got my April box and it’s the exact same as Liz’s box. I love it!

  8. I think this is the earliest I’ve ever received my Glossybox. Not only did I get the same box as Liz, but also, inside my Thursday Friday makeup bag, there was a mystery gift card worth 30% off anything on Thursday Friday’s website! I feel like they accidentally sent me someone else’s box. haha

    • Oh I know!!! I just got mine and I got the same box except for the eyeliner I got Plum! I’m so happy since last month was horrible.. I couldn’t use one thing in that box. But I’m glad GlossyBox gave me a good one this month! I hope everyone can get it.

    • LOL! I hope I get someone else’s box too!

    • Hey, just an FYI on the Thursday Friday website if you sign up with a new email address you can get 50% off. My coupon was good for 50% but if it was less I was just going so sign up with an email!

  9. I just got an email from Glossybox saying its shipped along with the tracking number, just waiting to see if I get the the one featured !

  10. I see that many people have Julep eye liners and seem to like them – I would love to swap for one if anyone wants to look me up on Swapidu. I think I just got off the swap wait list here recently on Liz’s site so I may start swapping here too. Anyway, don’t mean to be off-topic, just thought I would mention it in case anyone wants to swap. My Swapidu name is ametaldiva. Thanks! 🙂

    • I just got my Glossybox, and I got the Julep eyeliner in smoky taupe shimmer. It’s a color I already have (and love), so I’ll be swapping this one. I should have it up on the site shortly. Here’s a link to my swap page, if you’re interested. 🙂 http://swap.mysubscriptionaddiction.com/user/9643/profile

  11. You know I saw 2 videos where as they got multiple old items in an early April box (vs mid to end of month). And they did not get the 2 promised items either.

    I didn’t give in to the good 6 mth price. I am letting this sub go.

    OPI light pink nail polish (Nov 2014)
    Teadora lip butter (Holiday 2014)
    Amore perfume (Oct 2014)
    Tony and Guy Leave in conditioner (Feb 2014)
    artistry inn eye shadow (spelling?)

    • I just got a box very similar to that a few days ago. It was the March Classic box.

    • If you read the website correctly when you signed up- they are sold out of the April box. What you received was the “classic” version, which re-uses some of their old favorites. It’s not their fault, you probably just overlooked it when signing up. If you stay on though, you will get the May box and it may be worth it! 😉

  12. Their website stated that the April box will include the EL and 4 more beauty items. This box has 6 items. Isn’t padding boxes for blogs dishonest? Sounds like I’m gonna get another box of crap.

    • I never got Liz’s version of GB. hers are always better than mine……

    • What are the chances that the makeup bag will be included in our boxes? This sub I’ve purchased not just for myself but for gifts but I’m not so sure on it now.

      • I posted this question to their facebook page and they wanted me to pm them and they would answer. I did. this is what they told me:

        the box will have the same pop-art design, but it can come in different colors, chosen at random. We have several variations of the products inside. We cannot guarantee that you will receive the same items as the bloggers have displayed.

        The version received is based on factors such as beauty profile, age, location, sign-up date, as well as GWP bonus item. We are a beauty sampling and discovery service and aim to offer you the latest and greatest products in the industry.

        GWP bonus?? riiiight. Even though they clearly say that contents may vary…it still feels like a bait and switch scam. This is my last box from them. If they go back to everyone getting the same box I might reconsider.

        • I think GWP bonus refers to if you used a code to get a free extra item when you signed up.

        • I got a GWP, it was a $95 gift card/code to thufri.com it was in the makeup bag.

          • Hi, was it for $95 exactly or was that the discount after a percentage off? I ask because when I enter my code it changes the amount depending on what’s in my cart but always works out to 50% off.

        • Wendy, I hope you ended up getting a good box. I’m not a blogger and I got the same box as Liz received just different colored eye liner. My sister also received the same box just with different colored lip tar and eyeliner.

      • I got the bag in my box, I got everything the same as Liz’s box except the shade of OCC lip tar was unwearable in mine. Who wears safety cone orange?

    • Oh wow, I was pretty impressed with this box and thought of subscribing but then I saw your this comment, thank you, I’ll be giving this a miss. Not a fan of subscriptions boxes that send out a different box to bloggers for reviews, I’ll feel cheated.

    • Its not “padded”… I got the exact same box as the chick who writes the blog… Different colors for the eyeliner and gloss, but it was the same items. I actually just got my box today and came on here to compare, since I was surprised by how nice this month’s box is, lol.

  13. I barely just now got my march box. How do you have April’s already 3 days into the month? Is it just me or do bloggers and such get their boxes way before us normal consumers and much better items I might add.

    • Diana, you say you just got your march box (still waiting for mine!) Did it include the same items as Liz listed in her review our are there differences? With sites like My Addiction Subscription you would think it would be hard for companies to pull the bait and switch scheme. We the consumer KNOW what the boxes are “supposed” to contain.
      When I I contacted Glossybox last night re where my box(es) had disappeared to I received a response within 2 hours. I was surprised as I’ve seen nothing but comments tee how terrible there customer service generally it’s. However, I was asking a question that want difficult to answer so maybe that’s why I did get a quick reply.

      • And yes, I haven’t gotten march yet, hire its it that people already have april??

        • I finally received my March box today (actually, the first off the two March boxes I will eventually receive) and it is truly the March box. I signed up with glossy box on March 3 as a month too month subscriber. Maybe a week later while reading the Sub Addict board I came across the Oprah coupon which made the price of a longer term subscription an offer too good to pass up. This first box eventually mailed on March 23 and then USPS lost it from March 23 until today (the supervisor at my local PO dropped it at my door today on his way out of work! I think they were sick of me showing up daily to inquire).
          Although the Glossy box website claims that one can upgrade one’s subscription fror monthly to longer without any problems I am getting a.second Glossy box for the month of March but this one will be a “classic” box. Between all the miscommunication and the fact that this first box was mailed out SO late in the month I figured the box would be missing a product or have a few substitutes but everything on the info card matches the contents of the box and the card happily matches that of.Liz’s original review. I finally figured out what was different, they sent me an additional moisturizer (I’m blanking in the brand) and that makes me very happy! Like everything else, it’s the luck of the draw but this “mistake” has made me very happy. Thank you Glossy box!

      • I ordered my first Glossybox on March 23rd and it arrived this morning – yay! I thought it would be a welcome box but I think it was exactly the same, or very similar, to the March box Liz got – I’m actually going to go back to look at her review to confirm.

        Since I’m new to boxes, I really like it!

        • I ordered my first box at the very beginning of March and still haven’t received it. It is on its way, and I looked at its contents on-line and I don’t have a single item that is the same as what Liz got.

          • I’m in the same boat but I think usps is to blame. My box went off the radar on March 31 … just totally gone! So frustrating. However, when I look at the survey glossy sent online it is for the match box contents. I have this terrible feeling that the stupid post office has either list the box or will send it back to sender. I’ll be out the money cause I’m pretty sure at that point no one will make good.

      • I did not get the two ouidad hair care items, instead, I got a pink nexxus color assault gel shampoo which dried out my hair hohorriblely. And in place of the brow mascara liz got, I received a very cheap blue eyeliner which barely showed up on my skin. I am very disappointed with youthe items ive been getting from glossybox lately.

      • Same thing happened with me and they responded right away. However, when I received my box, it did not at all seem like it was made for me and just seemed thrown together or like one that was sitting on the shelf. The reason I say this is because out of the 5 products I received, I did not get any that I specified that I like to receive, and instead got 2 that I did not choose to receive. Also, I received a nude french manicure nail polish, when out of the 3 color schemes I chose for nail polish, nudes was not one of them. So it just didn’t seem tailor made for me like it should have been. So when you get your box, you should pay attention to that as well. I just subscribed (only on a monthly basis), so I’ll see how the next 2 boxes go before unsubscribing if this happens again. However, am happy to say that I received an email that my April box has already been shipped, so I’m glad this one won’t come the following month like my March box did.

    • On her blog it says she gets her box sent early for review purposes. I’m still waiting on my March Box so I feel your pain.

  14. I forgot that I still had another box coming in my 3 month subscription my brother bought me. The Estee Lauder will be a sub box repeat for me, but at least it’s a high end item. I hate those tiny perfume samples, but actual mini perfume bottles are fun to get because Im not someone who buys perfume & the bottles make for cute vanity decor. Not excited for ANOTHER dark lip tar from Glossybox… I give all Lip Tars away. The hair product is meh. And I have enough eyeliner to last me for eternity already – sub boxes should switch from eyeliners to cream eyeshadow crayons or blush chubbies.

    Hopefully I get a better variation than this.

    • Be careful on your 3-month sub. I was new to boxes in Jan. and thought I had to re-new after a three month sub…I was wrong. I went to cancel on the March 29th and glossybox automatically renewed for another 3-months on my credit card. Theres nothing I can do, its in the terms that you have to cancel 3 days BEFORE the end of the month. I’m not that upset, I did want to cancel though. I’m Canadian and the boxes work out to just over 33.00 with shipping, not worth it in my opinion.

  15. I hope I get a version that doesn’t have the Julep eyeliner or the perfume. (Maybe I can swap them if I get them).

  16. Not only is their customer service bad, but they don’t post 1 heart reviews, at least not mine. I noticed those reviews were not getting posted, but my 3 heart review did, placed at the bottom, so I tested it out by writing a horrible review for the March box, but gave it 5 hearts. Sure enough it posted right away, at the top. I hate having to give something 5 hearts, but glad people still read it because they referenced it in their comments. Also, having to reactivate my Facebook account just to get answers does not work for me, not everyone is on social media.

    • I posted a very long review and it wasn’t a totally good one, and I gave 2 hearts, and did not realize until after the fact that they only post 5 heart reviews. This is frustrating. It shows that the 5 hearts mean absolutely nothing!

  17. Given that Glossybox is sending boxes early to reviewers, it seems they are not against spoilers being out. So why not announce all the possible box variations, or at the very least, all the items that may be included in a box, so that people can get a fairly good idea of what they re getting?

    I like this box, but for me it’s too much of a risk to subscribe – I don’t want to expect a perfume and then get a nexxus shampoo or a body cream.

  18. This box looks better than the March box. My three month subscription is over this month. If I sign up for a six month, then will I get a classic box or this one?

    • I would guess you would end up with the classic box cause I bought a three month sub at a time the month wasn’t showing ‘soldout’. The box I received was a classic box. I complained and they said that all new subscriptions automatically get the classic box. And by ‘New Subscriptions’ they mean any that are not auto renewals. I really think that is a shady business practice.

      • I ordered at the beginning of March and then decided to update my sub to 6 months. They ended up sending 2 boxes, neither of which have arrived yet. I cancelled the monthly and although I have shipping numbers for both neither have arrived. I finally sent a message through their website tonight and got a response that they had accidentally sent two boxes (due to overlapping subs) one was March and the other a classic. I would guess that which you receive depends upon when in the month you ordered.

  19. I love this box and really want it. I wonder if there’s a way you can ask or request for it? It’s such crap the disparity between information they provide to people.

  20. Feeling underwhelmed for some reason. I feel like these are slipping in terms of value. It’s up for consideration to be cancelled for me – I can’t stand lip tar. They sent one last year and it was far too dark. It worked out for halloween & was in time for that, but that’s about it. I know they are to be mixed, I get it, but I am not a fan of the product. It feels like a high maintenance makeup product. I wish the liner were in a bright color..would be great for spring. I don’t mind liners but “black” and darker colors seem so “meh”….The other stuff seems ok, I’m the most excited over the skin serum (that is a great serum) as well as hair serum. So glad it’s not a shampoo/conditioner thing. serums and hair volumizers seem to go over with most people, just my opinion

  21. I have had Glossybox for over a year with only 1 previous problem. In 2015 somthing has changed where they are having several issues. I did not receive my February box at all *& still havent after several phone calls & emails they stated they were sold out. Even though they take your payment of $21.00 right away. 4 days later they took my March box payment and a month after that I got 1/2 of my March box ( according to the card insert) I also got a cheap body butter replaced for an expensive product they ran out of. To this date I have not received the two replacement products they promised me & I was told I have to wait until April & use the Glossydots they gifted me to get a box to replace the one they ran out of and didnt send in February. I cancelled and they still took out payment once again so I am more than upset and will NEVER be getting Glossybox ever again. Just wanted your people reading this to know the customer service is beyond POOR. They are not sending out the products they once did and cheaper versions instead. Although they advertise the more expensive ones to get you roped in. TERRIBLE!!

  22. From my limited experience with GlossyBox here is what I have learned. I originally signed up for a month to month, kept the sub for 6 months, cancelled the sub and reuped to a prepaid yearly at the end of Fenruary. When I reuped I lost my seniority as far as box contents and shipping priority. My March box was very late and different than the spoilers. It was dissapointing.

    • Good to know. Because I dropped my annual and reupped on a month-to-month. But that is OK. I think I posted this below, but I have a lot of those Julep eye gliders in all kinds of different colors and I am not a fan of the OCC lip tars. Of course that means I will probably get those and NOT the other things. We will see.

    • I still have not received my March box. Its finally on its way but won’t get here till next week.

  23. Oops, I meant that I received junky February and March boxes. They were still being even handed in January.

  24. My April box will be opened with some trepidation. Going by my January and February boxes I was royally stiffed, so am fully prepared to be sent leftovers again.
    It seems that who gets what box is completely random. I’ve bought every single Glossybox for over three years, but that still doesn’t entitle me to receive one of the boxes sent out in the first wave – the one we’re all led to believe we’ll receive.

  25. They told me the same thIng. I’m sure mine wont be as nice or include the makeup bag. My last 2 boxes were not as advertised either so I’m not going to set my hopes up only to be dissappointed again.

  26. I’m glad they told you that everyone would get those two samples, but that’s not what they told me. Here is my facebook conversation with Glossybox from this morning:

    ME

    If I subscribe today, will I get the April box? Thanks!

    GLOSSYBOX

    Good morning! Subscribing any day in April will result in an April Box.

    ME

    Great! And will all boxes include the Dark Spot Correcting Night Serum and perfume (the spoilers posted at beautystat.com)? Thanks!

    GLOSSYBOX

    The Dark Spot Correcting Night Serum is not a sample included in all of our boxes. Each GLOSSYBOX contains 5 items that match the inserted product card. There are several variations of our GLOSSYBOXES each month, as we mix and match the products being promoted by the brands in contract for the month. The version received is based on factors such as beauty profile, age, location, sign-up date, GWP bonus items, as well as which products we have in stock. We are a beauty sampling and discovery service and aim to offer you the latest and greatest products in the industry. I hope this clarifies a little more and that you enjoy your first GLOSSYBOX! Please let me know if you have any further questions.

    • I’m really disappointed with the disparity between boxes the last couple of months. I’ve had Glossybox for over a year and usually got a box very close to the box spoiled here. However, the last few months my boxes have been such disappointments and the value has been much, much lower than the spoiled boxes here. Plus I’m getting too many online only makeup/skin care products, which I think tend to have inflated “value” for product. I’m signed up through November and then I’m done. It’s time to try a new box service for me.

    • Hello all,

      Just a clarification, the Dark Spot Correcting Night Serum will in fact be included in all of our April Box versions! Apologies for any confusion.

    • I knew it. I never got Liz’s version of Glossybox. Mine always arrive at the end of the month with less valued items.

      • I never knew Glossybox commented on here, do they not read all the unhappy comments???

    • Be careful cause that is not what they told me. I signed up March 12th while the box was still available per their website. The very next day they debited my account and supposedly sold out of the box. They ended up shipping me a classic box. Below is our fb conversation…
      Hello Melissa,

      It looks you signed up with us 3/12, the payment process takes about 2 days to process before your box is moved to “pack” status. As we sold out of the March Edition 3/13, the very next day, it looks like we had already switched over to the “Classic” box by the time your box entered this phase. Due to lack of inventory for the the March Edition, you were shipped our Classic box. I hope this clarifies.

      I responded with this….
      My account was debited on the 13th. When I subscribed it was still available per your website. The frustrating part is that I signed up with enough time to receive that box and my account was charged the very next day the same day the box sold out. I should have had an option to opt out and skip getting the classic box and had just prepaid for April’s box. The whole reason I signed up was to receive that box and I was under the impression that I signed up with plenty of time. At no point was I told or warned that the payment had to be processed on YOUR end in the time allotted. With that being said, I feel like as if you guys had advertised sign up and make sure payment is processed before the box runs out it would have been a different story. I did everything on my end to ensure I would receive March’s box. Now I am stuck with a classic box that I never wanted nor had any intention of paying for. In result, I have canceled my subscription and chose to go with boxy charm instead. The whole reason why I signed up in March was because I wanted that box. Had I known I would have just waited and signed up for April. After all is said and done I don’t agree with this policy you guys have made and feel in the future you should allow your customers to opt out of the current classic box and wait till the following month. I would have been ok with that, disappointed but ok. I have read on many other subscription blogs that your company has terrible customer service, have current subscribers who don’t receive the current box due to it being sold out so you send them the classic box, late shipment, etc. I would also be ok with returning this classic box and you guys sending me the April box instead, if you would like to rectify the situation.

  27. Hi Liz
    Do you get your boxes way sooner than everyone else? I got a box today but it’s nothing like this………..does that mean what I got today was the March box?

  28. This looks way better than the March box-my March box was complete garbage! The only thing I kept for myself was the nexus shampoo! Usually I’m thrilled with Gb but last month it was so bad I just threw everything else away because I knew nobody would even accept the crappy contents

  29. The box itself is super adorable and the makeup pouch. I think I already have the Estee Lauder serum, not too thrilled about a perfume sample, the eyeliner or hair product. That’s a lie about the classic box in February, I was a subscriber in January, got the normal January box, but in February I got a weird classic box. March was back to the normal box that was just like Liz, so I’m praying that I get the normal box again. I don’t understand why they’re doing variations all of a sudden, I think they’re going to lose a lot of subscribers for it.

  30. I hope I get this box. I dearly love the box itself.

  31. I wonder if every box will include the cute makeup bag…if not I’ll probably get the luxe tampon sample pack variation…

    • Lol!! ;)~

  32. good review Liz, and thank you for going out of your way to assure that everyone gets the high value items, and are treated fairly and equally.

  33. Cute packaging is right, and nice items. I would use all of those items except the lip tar, which I would give to my son’s GF….. so everyone will be happy if that’s in fact the box I get.

    My problem w/ GB, and the reason I am not going to re-up when my 6 month sub is up, is not the slow shipping and indifferent customer service – though those things irk me – it’s the brand-new box variety BS and their attitude about it.

    They started it in February, with no announcement, and they were patronizing and obnoxious when people questioned it. I got the crap box in Feb and they could not have cared less. I got a good box in March and was happier w/ the products — but still unhappy with the whole idea that they are suddenly sending different versions.

    I also don’t like that they claim that people only get the ‘classic box’ if they are sold out of the regular box. What crap. I was an already existing customer in Feb and still got the classic box. People after me got the good box.

    So that was a long ranty way of saying that this is a nice box which I’d be glad to get, and glossybox can kiss my @ss.

  34. I’m seeing several repeats and items I’ve all tried except the perfume…nothing I’m getting excited about.

  35. Really like this box and I can’t wait to receive. I am really excited about the julep eye liner.

  36. I signed up today, I wonder if I will receive this box? I hope so!

  37. I love this box!!!!!! (Mostly because I hated March SO badly)

  38. Everything in this months box looks fantastic! Can’t wait!

  39. This looks awesome! Way better than March. The box and bag are so cute! I wonder if they’ll send out the lip tar in that awful copper color…but I’ll glady take your color Liz.

  40. Dang! That’s a GOOD box!! It’s the closest I’ve come to pulling the trigger on Glossy Box, but since I just went for the Jouer, I’m going to be strong and not give in to temptation.

  41. I signed up on March 7th. My box still hasn’t shipped. Does it usually take this long for a new subscription? It seemed like I would get the March box, but …..

    • From what I’ve heard that is normal… I just signed up on March 25th and I think I’m supposed to get a “classic” box since the March box was sold out… so maybe we’ll get our March boxes in the next couple of weeks? And then we should get our April boxes in early May! If I had the time, patience & skill, I would try to start a blog so I could get my boxes early and get a bunch of free boxes to review – lol. Alas, I’ll leave that to Liz & crew here on MSA.

    • I signed up March 12th while the March box was still available. I contacted them via Facebook (after several tries of emailing them with no response) on 3/31 since I still hadn’t received my box. They responded saying my box had just shipped with a tracking number. Today I checked my dashboard and it seems I’m getting the classic box instead of the march box that was still available when I signed up. I’m furious…I canceled. I wouldn’t have signed up had I known I wasn’t getting the March box. I’m giving boxy charm a shot instead.

      • I signed up on March 6 for the March box. As of March 29 it had not been shipped. I contacted them to see if my box was going to soon be shipped and they said they had 14 days after payment according to their policies to ship the product. It was after 14 days so I responded to nicely point that out. They just responded and said the products were backordered and there was nothing they could do. They didn’t offer to do anything, like expedite shipping or even apologize, so I asked to cancel and for a refund. Ugh. Sorry about your box. They really do need to get their act together.

    • You usually won’t get your box until a week into the next month. Glossybox is sorta known for bad shipping..

  42. love that packaging! so cool!

  43. I want to get this box just so I can have the box itself. Love it!

  44. Oh – the infamous Sample Society serum. I thought that was a Thursday Friday bag. I like this box and would subscribe if it wasn’t for Glossybox’s issues.

    • Why is it infamous?

      • Because SS told subscribers it was full size then sent the smallest possible sample available. Personally I don’t use Estée Lauder products due to their stance on animal testing to gain entry into the Chinese market (animal testing is mandatory to sell cosmetics there). As a practical matter, the product did nothing at all after 30 days of use.

    • I though the same on the bag at first glance

  45. I have SO MANY of those Julep gel eye gliders (although not that color). Not such a big fan of OCC lip tars; we’ll see how this one goes. The other items look great, though, so I’m sure that will make up the value for me. Still happy I resubscribed. Not every product is going to be a hit for me with any box.

    • Agreed on the OCC lip tars. This is the third time they’ve sent that exact product in the last 7 months. That’s twice too often in my opinion. That and I never get a shade that’s remotely wearable. I generally love my GlossyBoxes but this one is a miss for me with the EL serum and the OCC repeat item. It’s the last of my current 3 month sub anyway and I’m on the fence about resubbing….

  46. Has anyone that got the subscription on Rue La La been able to sign up for the April box instead of the classic?

    • I did today. Says I’ll get it between the 15th and 26th and it says april box.

    • I signed up yesterday with my Rue La La voucher and it says April box.

    • I signed up for the Rue La La deal on 4/7 and it said I would get the April box shipped between 4/15-4/26 so I guess time will tell.

  47. Is that a Thursday Friday bag?

    • Yes! 🙂

  48. Like it! But I guess mine will come after 20th, as always.

  49. I’m still waiting for my March box. That said, this looks like fun box so I guess I’ll be seeing it in May!
