  1. Just want to say that this is my 3 year getting the NM pop sugar box. I just received it and it’s just fantastic!!! I love it! Hope those of you who did make the purchase love yours too πŸ™‚

  2. This spoiler is so not doing it for me…first of all, this tray (and brand) is not sold at NM (maybe it’s in store only?). My expectation for this box is items NM is currently selling. Secondly, the spoilers for the previous two boxes were the most valuable items – the throw ($195) in 2013 and the clutch ($220) in in 2014. I seriously hope this $100 tray (let’s be honest, it’s going to be the small tray) is not the hero item of the box. And finally, the material of the box (as listed on the melaartisans website) is bone. Does anyone know what this means? Is it real bone or bone china? Either way, so not appealing to me.

    • You’re searching using the wrong terms on the NM site. If you search by “mela artisans” a larger version of the PopSugar tray is available for $275 in stores and online. And yes…it is made from bone. The one in the PopSugar NM box will likely be the $100 12″ x 8″ tray or maybe the $130 15.5″ x 11″ tray would be preferred. I would totally be able to use this tray and find it beautiful!!! This will be my first NM box and I’m actually considering buying two.

      • Nope, I’m still not seeing it on the Neiman Marcus website…I do see “Bone Tray” for $275 which looks like it could be from the same company but no designer is listed. Based on this one spoiler I’m thinking maybe this should be called the PSMH NM Last Call box.

        • I found one at Bloomingdales under “meal artisans”. It’s $250

  3. I have no use for a tray and yet signing up for email notifications of comments here is making this harder to resist….

    Is the spoiler usually the best item? Because if the tray is the best, this is not for me…

  4. On the for Mela Artisians they are still selling the box. It their Fantasy collection. It ranges from $100 to $130….

  5. Just got first spoiler…… So glad I got this box!!!! Love it…..

  6. The first spoiler just came out via email! Mela Artisans Tray will be in every box — still not sure I’m sold on this one yet.

    • Must not be selling so well, I got the spoiler email too. Cute tray, but not enough to pull $250 out of my wallet.

    • Got the spoiler email too… but when I searched NM for “mela” nothing came up… isn’t it usually items that NM sells?

      • Apparently Mela Artisans inked a deal in 2013 to have their line stocked in NM and Bergdorf Goodman, so they used to sell that line. Hope that doesn’t mean that this box is the left over they are trying to get rid of!

  7. after two days of constant checking to make sure the box had not sold out yet and waiting to see if they put up the less than 100 left banner I gave in. Box bought hopefully it’s more 2013 than 2014.

    • ME TOO! I just placed my order! I couldn’t stand the thought of missing out. I totally understand what everyone was saying about last year’s box being a bit of a miss — the items inside just didn’t have that obvious, discernible value that you want luxe gifts to have. I use a few of last year’s items as holiday gifts, but I just didn’t feel like the recipients had any idea how much the items were “worth.” Sigh … I decided to go for it anyway. I couldn’t resist! Come on November 15th!!

      PS: Thanks, Liz, for reaching out to PS about it being exclusive to their site! That made me feel a lot better about going for it. πŸ™‚

      • You’re welcome! Now the waiting game begins! πŸ™‚

      • Yay us and the first spoiler just came out and i love it! It matches my house perfectly!

  8. I didn’t buy the 2014 box, but a nice member traded me the Clare V clutch for a number of PS monthly items I hadn’t used. It is the nicest purse I have ever owned in my life. I’m considering the 2015 box. Wonder what the chances are of getting a hint before the box sells out?

    • It seems to me that PSMH has finally got the hang of creating just about the right amount of boxes for the demand.

      Since there were so many extras last year that they put out full spoilers and sold boxes at Neiman Marcus, I was thinking that I’d just wait. But then I remembered that they’ve sold out before releasing full spoilers for every box this year, including the LE boxes. So personally, I decided not to risk it.

  9. I loved the Swing Design Mia hexagon glass boxes from last year. Hoping to get something like that again. It was nice that we got the Swing Design Aura vallet trays in the most recent LE box.

  10. I’m tempted, but I need a spoiler. I was not happy last year when the box went on sale for $200 (although I enjoyed the box). I know that they have said “exclusively sold by Popsugar”, but I just don’t trust them. CFDA was a terrible bomb and I doubt that they will give refunds if NM is a bomb as well. I need a spoiler or two before I drop $250 on this box. Fool me once….

  11. Is this really going to be sold exclusively on POPSUGAR Must Have? Last year I remember NM selling it on their website later, and you were also able to use a discount code on the order. That really rubbed me the wrong way.

    • Just confirmed – this box will NOT be sold through Neiman Marcus this year. Hope that helps!

  12. I bought one and am both excited and mildly terrified.

    Looking at previous reviews, I LOVED the 2013 box. It was a thing of beauty. I really liked the 2014 box, but certainly not as much as the previous year’s. Personally, I would have been happy with both.

    But the experience with the painfully disappointing CFDA box has me on edge. And it IS a lot of money.


    • Haha, “Meep!” made me laugh. I’m with you — I just placed my order! I was too afraid of missing out if it turns out to be awesome.

  13. I looked at the previous two years’ reviews (yet again!) and I decided against it. And then I went and bought an adorable giraffe and zebra salt and pepper shaker set from Neiman Marcus Last Call and that got the Neiman Marcus out of me. I feel like I’ve indulged for the day.

    I’m getting Rachel Zoe, Luxor Box special edition, and hopefully Popsugar Winter Special Edition. That’s enough luxurious gifts for myself for one season.

  14. I feel like I am going to buy it and next month it will be at NM and I will miss a better deal.

  15. I’m in! NM has such great beauty brands and I hope we get some high-end makeup. Last year the makeup and moisturizer would have gotten a lot of use from me and there would have been some nice gift items there as well.

  16. Does anyone know when this box ships? I can’t seem to find that anywhere and I’m seriously considering this box.

    • November 15th

      • Liz, are you saying this will only be sold on the popsugar must have site and not on the neiman marcus site, too? Sorry if this has already been clarified. I’m hesitating because of the discount neiman marcus offered on the box last year (before PS even shipped!!).

        • I believe that’s what it means, but I’ll reach out to verify so we can be 100% sure. I’ll keep you posted!

  17. After last year’s box and the CFDA “fiasco”, I cannot order this one until there is a spoiler. I’d rather regret not purchasing the box than regretting spending $270 on items that I cannot appreciate.

    I gifted a lot of last year’s box but there is no way the recipients knew they were getting a $100 picture frame, etc.

    • If I may ask, what is/was the CFDA fiasco?

      • It was a God-awful uber-expensive box. you can look it up here on the site. Luckily they took returns and got a LOT of them after the spoilers came out! they have since stopped taking returns though

        • I think that was the one and only time they took returns for limited edition boxes. I was glad they did. That was my first and last limited edition box with Popsugar.

          • Amen! That was my first and last special edition Pop Sugar. It’s too much to spend to have that happen again. I’ll stick to my monthly boxes and Rachel Zoe.

  18. Oops, I did it again.

    • I might be an insane person but I just bought it. I’m glad my husband doesn’t ever see my credit card statement or he might have a heart attack.

      • Same here!!!! In fact, I thought that exact thing while I was ordering it.

  19. I did not buy 2013, and bought 2014, and was disappointed. I guess I just do not like Ken Downing’s taste, having been a very loyal NM customer for 30 years. I sold the lip gloss and the mascara set to my husband for $50 since he said he needed a $50 gift for his mother. That being said, I still have not used the cream nor the clutch, and the candle stands unburned. I think I am going to take my chances. I have bought every single $100’box since last fall and love you very single one. But I am not betting $250 on Ken’s taste, which I know I do not like. So if there is no spoiler, Sephora 15% here I come next month.

    • Wendy if you wanted to get on the swap site Im looking for that cream and the candle9depending on scent) or email me back and I might buy them from you, im on paypal.

      • Laura. thank you for the offer. I hate shipping, that is why I do not sell or swap. I sold on eBay and got rid of all my cosmetics gwp for 4 years, and back then I can drop boxes off after hours at the post office. Now the drop bin is locked. So too much hassle for me. I wish we have local swap groups though,

        • Just a quick FYI: If you’re shipping at least one Priority Mail package, the USPS will pick up your package(s) during regular mail delivery for free.

          I can’t stand going to the Post Office so this service is a life saver for me. πŸ™‚

          • I wanted to add that for small packages (like an envelope that you’d put a cosmetic item in), you can either stick them in your mailbox and your mail carrier will take them, or you can put it in any mailbox. That’s what my (amazing!) mail carrier told me. I don’t attempt it for bigger packages, but for most of my small ebay items, I can do that.

      • Hi! where’s the swap site? I’m new and just ordered my 1st box! woo-hoo

        • On this site, go to swaps and you will join and usually have to wait to be accepted, and its awesome, im clesning out items i wouldnt have used anyway and swap for items i can use, and really wanted

  20. Also just an FYI since it is not listed in the post the email this morning said that the box contains seven items

  21. I wish they had like a countdown so I could know how many boxes they made and how many are left – it helps with decision making πŸ˜‰

    • YESSSSS!
      wish that this is available for all limited edition boxes

  22. I just can’t bring myself to pay that much for a box that can’t be customized in any way to my style/preferences. Too much of a gamble for me and my single-income-household budget!


  24. I keep deciding against this, and then I’m like “but but but….you loved the last Popsugar Must Have Special Edition box and you spent $50 to buy two items on ebay instead of just spending $100 to get the whole thing!” (I never heard of Popsugar Must Have until I saw the review here.) And $250 is a ridiculous amount of money….

  25. I ordered one. Looking back at the last two, I would have happily paid $250 for either one knowing the contents (had I known about them at the time).

  26. Definitely won’t be buying this. For $250, I’d want stuff I need, not just high-value indulging items. Looking at previous boxes, it just doesn’t seem worth the money.

    • Exactly. At $250 you can make your own box with your favorite items or better, splurge on the luxury item(s) you always wanted to buy.

  27. I am having a tough time deciding – I loved the first box but was not too excited about the second. I missed buying the second which was good since the contents were not for me and the whole getting a discount at NM thing. I had been hoping that they learned their lesson and this would be more like the first. It seems they have since they have made it clear it will only be sold by PopSugar and not NM. So now to decide if i should bite the bullet…..

    • Ugh. I’m in the same place. The 2013 looked amazing, including the make-up. 2014, not so much, including the make-up! How many trinket boxes and trays does a person need?

      I’m just scared they learned from 2014 and have done a great re-bound on 2015 and I’ll miss out.

  28. Luckily I have no desire to order this, there are way too many things I’d rather spend $250 on.

  29. This is a tough one. I’m in California and the price is jacked up to $270 because of tax! First timer and conflicted by possible coupons or discounts later if supplies last. It seems like the responsible thing to do is to wait….a little bit longer. yikes!

    • It’s that price in a lot of places. I paid just over that. :/

    • In Ohio and the same thing! That kind of makes my decision for me…

  30. Looked at the 2014 and 2013 reviews. $250 for random stuff you can get at TJ Maxx. Not for me.

    • Does TG Maxx sell Clare V clutches and Lancer cosmetics now? If so, I definitely need to make a special trip.

      • lol Meg

      • Yeah, lol Meg.

      • HA! πŸ˜€

  31. I am so on the fence about this one. I want to buy it but $250 is so much. I’ve never spent that much on a box without a spoiler. If it doesn’t sell out soon then it gives me time to keep contemplating on whether or not to purchase it. Decisions, decisions.

  32. I’ve decided I have a $100 limit on what I’m willing to spend on something sight unseen but I’ll look forward to seeing what everyone gets in November.

    • The $135 I spent on the Luxor “most requested” box is the most I’m willing to spend on a box with no spoilers. $250 is just too much money for a bunch of random items that I may or may not like. For $250 I can go shopping and know that I’m going to love what i buy. This box is really not hard to pass up but i hope for anyone buying it that it turns out to be a great box!

  33. I can’t believe I bought one!!! Talk about expensive! I guess the good thing is that I can sell or swap anything I don’t want. How exciting!!! I’m always too late for these things and I was like one of the very first to buy one. This has to be meant to be….it ships on 11/15 and my birthday is on 11/19!!! ??????????

    • Hope you love this box! πŸ™‚ And Happy early Birthday!

      • Thank you!!! I hope it’s as awesome as the last two!!!

  34. Finally pulled the trigger and got one this year. Every time I don’t I’m sad that I didn’t – I figure I’ll just swap anything I don’t want.

    • I was going to wait to see if they had it at NM, now I am not so sure they will have it. So now I know I won’t get the $50 discount! I LOVED the 2013 box and wish I got it! I got 2014 and absolutely LOVED everything! I HAVE to HAVE this!!!!

  35. Holy cow!!! That is beyond expensive! I’d rather spend that money and go to Disney!

    • Disney, Disney, Disney!

  36. Has anybody made the leap and purchased this box? I know that many people like to stop at NM to see what is in the box before purchasing.

    • Hm, I just noticed this text on their site: Sold exclusively on POPSUGAR Must Have.

      I’m guessing that means it may not be available via Neiman Marcus this year.
