  1. I’m really pissed. I don’t understand how I sat here refreshing it every second and I didn’t get one but others did. Did they have like 2 boxes up for sale?

  2. Am I in the mild of a nightmare? I’ve been on for hour and nothing was working and then SOLD OUT. Oh my God, I’m so pissed

  3. 🙁 I’m so bummed! I got online 15 minutes before it was set to start and kept refreshing. Finally got a Buy Now link and entered my CC info and it’s sold out!!

    • Would anyone like to swap/purchase the mascara and all of the hair products and tanner from me? I won’t use them.

      • Lisa,
        I would be interested in buying them from you. How much would you like for them?

        • I have no idea what to charge…What do you think?

        • I have no idea what to charge. What do you think?

  4. Darn 🙁 It just kept refreshing very rapidly on it’s own for me. I had it open in a few different browsers also. Well, at least I won’t wait for over an hour like I did last week to figure out I can’t get it!

  5. Soooo frustrating! I was literally trying the WHOLE time and I never got through, then it was sold out! grrrr!!!! why can’t they sell more of these?!

    • only doesn’t seem fair that some people could buy 2 when so many people were scrambling just to get one box

  6. Got TWO! One for me and one for my Mom. YAY! Worth losing sleep after being up all night with my toddler who needed ONE more glass of water a billion times. I hope everyone got one and still wish they sent out more offers of all 3 to all subscribers.

  7. I got mine, but seeing all the people who didn’t, I really don’t think Allure should allow anyone to purchase more than 1. I was surprised that you could order 2.

    • I agree Kristi. I didn’t even try for one, I think my husbands eyes would bulge out of his head if he saw one more subscription box coming to my door lol. Especially with the special edition mother’s day boxes I have coming this month haha. Besides, I don’ think I have one more drawer in my bathroom to fit all of this full sized stuff. I was concerned that the BB cream would be a medium shade and therefore too dark for me. I hope everyone loves that Tarte mascara as much as I do though!

      • I went a little crazy with the Mother’s Day boxes too. Just saw that my Mother’s Day GlossyBox shipped today 🙂 This is my last “special” box for awhile.

      • The Tarte mascara was what made me go for it, last week and then finally success this week!
        You need to try multiple links and keep opening new browsers. On FB it seems more people were having luck with Safari than other browsers, worked for me as well. But I really think it’s just random dumb luck

  8. I think I have had it with these boxes i wasted an hour last week and my morning waiting for this just for the link to not work again. It finally shows up for me and as soon as I clicked it it is sold out?? absolutely ridiculous.

  9. So bummed! I was finally in the link & it sold out!

  10. Ugh it’s sold out

  11. Wow, sold out while I was typing in my CC #. If it lets you get to that part, it should let you buy it. Not fair

  12. BOX is SOLD OUT.. didn’t get to the link and when I did to enter & did enter ALL my info.. it said.. SOLD OUT! what poop…..

  13. guess it wasnt meant to be for me. by the time I saw the correct link posted it was sold out. I was checking all the other links and nada.

  14. I tried to get one today for my sister and by the time I finished entering my billing info and hit continue, I got “Sold Out.” And it didn’t even start exactly at noon.

  15. That was Bull S***! It wasn’t available , wasn’t available, wasn’t available…then Buy now at 12:11 and told SOLD OUT!
    In a minute. So disappointed…seams like some type of sham!!!

  16. I just got mine two minutes ago- use all three links Liz gave us!

  17. …says that it’s sold out…

  18. I got a sold out message once it finally said buy now. What a mess. never again.

  19. FINALLY!! I was able to get mine!! It didn’t start right on time….about 5 mins. late but that’s ok…This was my birthday to myself so I am very happy!! Good luck to everyone else!!

  20. Got in, filled out all of my info, clicked confirm and they were sold out. 🙁

    • me too, I clicked the buy now button and put in all of my info and then was told it’s sold out. I’m disappointed.

  21. Is this really not working again? Has anyone got one?

  22. What a bunch of crap! The link didn’t work until about 2 minutes ago and now says it’s sold out… grrr

  23. Well that sucks. I forgot all about it. Sold out in under 10 minutes.

  24. Holy cow! Already sold out.

  25. sold out

  26. Sold out

  27. Got in to see, sold out!

    • Ridiculous!

    • Im seriously pissed. This is twice I wasted time. It even let me fill out the order form just to say sold out. At 0909. And I started trying at 0900 (Pacific). Just ridiculous.

  28. GOT IT!!

  29. just ordered one!!! 9:08 PST

  30. Got mine, the link took a couple minutes to work but went through

  31. I just kept refreshing the page and eventually it loaded haha

  32. I got it!

  33. it finally just worked for me!!!! my box is ordered!!!! TRY THE LINKS NOW!!

    • Not working for anyone else apparently. Says the same thing it has for the past 5 minutes.

  34. I finally got one. Try again.

  35. my screen just changed to “hey, this is the beauty box promo.” anyone else see that? still no click to buy link.

  36. I now get a generic message that (irritatingly) says “Hey! This is the beauty box promo!”

    • I have to say I’ve never seen a non government operated website have such issues. It’s not like this is the first time they’ve offered it!

      • Ugh! I got the sold out message 🙁

  37. Is anyone having any luck with any of these links?

    • no! as usual

  38. Not working at 9:05.

  39. not working for me either, 12:05 EST.

    • ok, now i’m set. got it at 12:06. 🙂

  40. is anyone getting the link to work this time?
    im still having no luck!!!

    • Just got it! Now back to work to make money to pay for it 🙂

  41. It appears the beauty box did not go live at 12:01 EST.

    I’ve hit refresh a couple of times and nothing’s happening.

  42. Is it working for anyone yet? 11:04 central/12:04 eastern, and I still see the “sorry, try again May 6 at 12pm Eastern” message.

    • Nevermind – got it! So excited 🙂

  43. Looks like it’s not working again.

    • And now it just says “Hey! This is the Beauty Box promo.”

      • now says sold out, imagine that?

  44. And….nothing. None of the links does anything. Just goes to the same preview page. Am I missing something? Is it down AGAIN?

    • Nope, down for me too. Bleh.

  45. It’s still not for sale!! its 12:03!! Ah!

    • Yeah, I’m still getting the same page as before, not live yet…

  46. I was on vacation last week, so I am excited to try today! So, I am curious how you get invited to do the three box pre sale?

    • Weird – I think it’s fixed for me now – is it still going to the wrong link for you?

  47. I received my box last week since I did the 3-box presale. For those who were wondering, I received the medium shade in the CC cream, which is a little dark for me. I’m not sure if that shade is standard across all the boxes. For the nail polishes, I received the blue shade in the photo for the Flower polish, but received a sparkly copper shade in the Sally Hansen.

    • Thanks sooo much for the info, it helped me decide not to go for it – the CC cream is the one thing I’d really want and medium would also be too dark for me.

      • Me too!

  48. I didn’t even really want to get one of these (too many hair products I wouldn’t use) but got caught up in everyone else’s attempts last week (although I did not succeed). This week, however, I have a doctor’s appointment at sale time and that is probably for the best, financially-speaking.

    Good luck to everyone who is trying, though!
