  1. Has anyone who subbed to this box for the bonus May box deal actually gotten their free May box yet? It was over 3 weeks ago — and I’ve already gotten June — but no May yet. Just wondering…

    • I have not received the May bonus box nor my June box yet….I was a new sub on the special deal also.

      • Nope, haven’t received the May box yet, but I think I remember seeing something when I signed up that said the May box would ship in 3-4 weeks.

        • I ordered in May for the bonus box. I had the bonus box shipped to my mom. It was the October box. I was a little jealous because I liked it better than May! I have gotten both the May and June and haven’t been impressed yet. I really like OnyxBox as far as boxes for WOC go. I also like the level of personal service you get with a smaller sub company. I am thinking of stopping Allure and Essence to give another company a shot at a higher price point.

  2. i got my 1st box today and really like it! I got:
    Madame CJ Walker hair packets (2)- super excited to try these
    NYX HD blush in bronze …worked great with my light skin tone with light application
    matte lip stick in Plum…didn’t work on lips but worked great as eyes shadow 🙂
    Vaseline lotion…always nice to have in the purse and it smells yummy
    Kleenex face wipe…I was disappointed that the pack is only one wipe but it caused my face to turn red so I wouldn’t use more anyway.

    I’m very light/pale Irish descent but this box is working for me anyway. I have wavy/curly hair that tends to get frizzy so I can use most of the hair oils and treatments with gusto.
    I figure I’ll never get self tanner or beach waves salt spray in the Essence box and I’m sick of those from other boxes!

    My last Birchbox came today (cancelled after the points fiasco) so I’m happy to find that I like the Essence box and I love the graphic on the actual box so that will make me less sad about those beautiful boxes from Birchbox.

    • ooh…I forgot the Jamberry! I got a silver geometric design that’s pretty. I’ve always wanted to try Jamberry so that’s a nice addition.

  3. Got mine yesterday! Love the direction they’re going in but the lip and the blush didn’t fit me well at ALL. Again this is a sample box so I sampled the lip color and blush which didn’t fit my brown skin well at all. I would’ve preferred the darker lip of the 2. That blush oh boy….I’ll be giving that to someone that the color best fits. I loved the lotion, nail decals and hair product. The lip and blush were a miss for me this month. Overall I still enjoy this box.

  4. Mine should arrive by the 17th (can’t wait), but I hope I get the ombre blush. I have so many HD blushes from NYX already.

  5. I’m excited for this as my first box. I’m not a WOC but I have curly hair that the oils will love and the rest looks good too. After the birchbox disappointment today, it’s good to be excited about a box.

  6. I got mine yesterday! I am a WOC with natural curly hair and got 2 hair packets (gel and curl cream), nyx blush, jamberry, face wipe, and the purple lip color. Great box!!

    • I got all of the same. I couldn’t believe how heavy it was when I picked up the mail! Great box, but I’m not sure I can pull off that lip color (not a WOC).

    • Which Jamberrys do you end up with? Are they all the same or are there variations? My best friend is black so I might split this with her 🙂 She’s always looking for nice hair stuff and this one has looked pretty cool to me (I think it’s looked nicer than BB for months now!! Ugh.) except for the curly hair products for a long time. I use the random stuff and she would use the hair stuff/darker pigmentation type colored makeup. We’ve talked about it before. It doesn’t make sense for either of us to get it, but if we split it….. 😀

      • My jambury’s are a solid orange-pink color. No design, but it matches my profile.

  7. I’m thinking about signing up for this box, Allure or Ipsy since Birchbox is having a drastic change.

    • Allure is awesome. And I think this one is better than ipsy.

  8. Just FYI-you will recieve a variation of the items above, not all of them. I think it’s either the blush or the lipstick but not both. Mine will be here today and I can post what I recieved.

    • I just watched the video – its on their website. You get the ombre blush (not the HD blush), AND the Vivid matte lipcolor. You get only one of the hair packet duos.

      • Got it! Didn’t have time to watch the video and just read comments. Yay! I have loved this sub so much. This is my 3rd month. Very fun, useful and different things and I’m not a WOC, I think this is for everyone.

        • I’m not either – pasty white here, but the products are very neutral and not generally geared to darker skin tones or hair types. Love it!

          • Technically, it is geared toward women of color. The blush you would receive in Essence vs ipsy or Birchbox is night and day. It will be better pigmented and in a shade that’s suitable for brown skin tones. The hair products are night and day. You’re not going to receive a beach waves hairspray like you would in other boxes (and like I did in my Beautycon box this month). You’re also not going to receive a self-tanner (also like I received this month) in this box. Even the lip colors are picked with WOC in mind (the deep purple vs an unflattering ashy pink). So for those of us who have to worry about these kinds of things when it comes to beauty, it’s definitely geared! Glad it’s universal enough to work for others as well.

          • I agree with KellyG, this box is definitely geared towards WOC and it should be. That doesn’t mean it lacks universal appeal, but the shade choices of the cosmetics definitely lean to bolder, more vivid hues.

    • I already got mine!! I had:
      NYX HD blush
      White/Cracked Jamberry Nails (my roommate got a pink color)
      Bright Purple Lippie
      Vaseline Lotion (SMELLS AMAZING)
      Kleenex face wipes
      CJ Walkers Curly hair packets

      So you do get blush and lippie there are just a few shades offered.
