  1. I am very happy with this mystery box. However they did not send my free full sized item. I emailed them and hopefully they will send it to me. The items I got were great and I can use all of them. The makeup bag was a great surprise and I love all the lippies. I will definitely be ordering more mystery boxes from them.

    • Where can I find the email address? I did not get the travel bag.

  2. Just got mine today and really loved everything but the lip gloss which with two teen daughters in the house should not go unused. I needed Mineral Veil so I was able to avoid addition shipping and get a couple free samples and free items.

    For the $61.85 which included mineral veil($22.00 and tax) I am very happy with my purchase and will look forward to more Bare Essentials mystery boxes

    • i loved my mystery box as well ,i got the same items as you i ordered the ready foundation in med beige for $21.00

  3. Even after my card was charged several times I was determined to try this box. Mine came yesterday and I got three lip products, a concealer that’s too dark, sample mascara 2 brushes that are pretty lame, a nice big makeup bag, 2 neutral eye shadows, a bronzer and 2 eyeliners. The only thing I really like is the bag. I get way more enjoyment out of a 20$ boxy charm than this box that was nearly 40$ after tax. Not a fan at all! I will be gifting almost everything in this box.
    I was really hoping for more variety or at least one product to wow me. I made the mistake of selecting the blending brush as a free gift and it’s the size of my pinkie.
    I don’t think I’ve ever been more disappointed in a beauty box ?. I might enjoy this more when I’m splitting the items up to gift! At least now I can’t be tempted to order the next one.

    • I’m pretty sure someone on here said that you can return the box if you really don’t like it. It’s probably an all or nothing deal, but if you do t like anything, I’d ask customer service about it. If you paid that much, I wouldn’t want to waste it either. I’m still waiting for mine, hoping I like some of the stuff.

  4. This was my first Bare Minerals mystery box, which arrived a couple days ago, I love it. I’ve never really used Bare Minerals products because I thought all the loose powders would be a nightmare for me because I spill everything, but so far so good. I like everything they sent which is rare for me not to just pitch something right in the garbage! With the exception of foundation, my entire face is Bare Minerals today, I’m looking forward to seeing how it holds up.

  5. Ok, so I really liked the buxom lip glosses from the last box, so I ordered…
    … But then had buyers guilt and tried to cancel, but they said it was processing so I couldn’t.
    However, they said I could return it. So, if you hate your mystery box you can always return it.
    I will probably do that because I’m very unhappy that they are giving concealer in medium. I have tan/dark skin and that just isn’t fair to anyone who doesn’t have medium skin ๐Ÿ™

  6. Is anyone able to still order it? I had trouble ordering it earlier & waited till I got home & now its showing its sold out! Ughhhh! I wanted this so badly as a birthday present for myself!

    • I ordered one and got a order number, but they refunded my money back.. so I’m assuming I’m not getting one.

  7. Please if anyone gets their packing slip post the contents! I need more BM products like I need a hole in the head but still have an itchy trigger finger…

      • Oooooooh that all sounds so good! Thanks for posting! I went ahead and ordered one after I saw your post. I just hope I get the same stuff, my box last time was kind of a bust. Added on a plum eyeshadow and a blending brush with the RMNEYE and SUMMER codes. Thanks to everyone for the codes!

      • Thank you Mary!

      • Thank you for posting the inventory! Looks like this one will be a mix of things I want and others I’m ambivalent about. But overall, still not bad. And thanks to MSA I was able to use the coupon codes to get 2 free eyeshadows. I’ve been putting off getting another jar of my powder foundation and now I’m glad I did, because it pushed me over the $50 threshold to also get the 2 extra goodies. So all told, I’m getting the 12 items, plus 4 more, plus an item I’ve been needing to get for a while now. Thanks MSA!

      • i wish it wasnt sold out! :*(

      • I got the same list–excited about some, and others will be up for swap.

        I did the >$50 order (needed more foundation), so I got the two bonus items. Looks like they were:
        1 42210 Full Tapered Shadow Brush (G3)
        1 30805 S SOUL Eyecolor (G1)

        I can always use shadow brushes, so happy about that!

        • Where are you all seeing these lists at? I ordered on but all my email showed as just the box with no individual items.

          • It was on my shipment notice that was e-mailed to me. Wasn’t on initial e-mail confirming my order.

    • i just tried to order!i was really excited, i love bare minerals!! its out of stock:(

  8. I made sure to read the comments and didn’t see anyone else having the same problem as last time. Of course my card has been charged 6 times! I was getting a clear as day error message so I double checked my info and re submitted before I decided to check my credit card. Never. Again.

  9. FYI! You can use code RMNEYE for a free eye color of your choice, also!

    • Thank you so much!! Such lovely choices of eyeshadows through this promo. You’re the Bomb!

    • You can use RMNEYE and the SUMMER code together too!

  10. If possible, would someone please post the spoilers? I’m trying so hard NOT to buy one. I bought the past two and was very happy. I also really want that cheek balm as the free gift (saw it on QVC a while ago for $40 and have wanted it since).

  11. I tried to refrain but I broke down. The last mystery box wasn’t my favorite but I still liked a lot of the items.

  12. I’m not sure if it’s such a good thing that I subscribe to My Subscription Addiction, I don’t know how much I’ve spent in the last month since subscribing! Vegan boxes, Julep, Sephora, Boxycharm, Ipsy, Birchbox (and cancelled the box was terrible). Seriously, when is it enough?
    I’m not even a fan of this brand and I was all over this and the bonus gifts. I have an addiction…..
    I think it’s the thrill of waiting and knowing there will be something fun waiting for me when I get home!

    • I know how you feel! I went a little crazy when I first started and have since cancelled Birchbox and Ipsy. I ordered So Choix instead, I like the idea of selecting my samples instead of taking a chance on things I may or may not like. I kept Sephora Play just because I do like to have some surprises and to be introduced to products I may not otherwise choose for myself.

      • I’ve had my eye on so choix! How is it? It sounds amazing, but I wonder if the sample are any better than what you can get at sephora for free. I wish MSA would do a couple reviews on them!

    • yah i discovered subsciption boxes 2 weeks ago, ive ordered ipsy, then scentbird, then beautybox 5, then birchbox, fabfitfun, also got my boyfriend gameday box, mystery tackle box, olif, and sprezza, i might have a problem ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

    • The addiction is REAL lol MSA definitely fuels the fire but I love them for it.

  13. Someone please post the items. I’ve done 2 mystery boxes in the past and don’t want a bunch of repeats.

  14. Does anyone know how these codes work? I am adding them but nothing is popping up for me to pick the free gift.

    • Free gift was automatically applied on my order! ๐Ÿ™‚

  15. Wasn’t going to give in even though the last mystery box I loved but then I remembered I had a code to redeem birthday stuff so I gave in , here’s hoping I don’t get the gold lip gloss I got in the last 4 boxes, though lol

  16. Dont do it! I bought the last one and was sent very old and rancid smelling lip gloss. I contacted customer service by email several times and they ignored me. This is how they clear out their warehouse of old product.

    • I got the last one and received great stuff. I’m sorry you had a bad experience.

  17. At first I resisted ordering this one, but I can’t help myself. And I did put another item in my bag to bump the total over $50 so I could get the two ‘mystery items’. Lawd help me.

  18. Just ordered! I enjoyed the mystery box last time, so thought I’d try again! Really good deal, if I don’t like everything, will have some nice presents!

  19. OMG! I desperately need help!!! I just bought ONE set this time but I also bought a 5-1 liquid eyeshadow. They gave four choices for the free item with the “SUMMER” code: Pop of Passion Blush Balm, Eye Defying Brush, Velvet Eyeshadow in Velvet Violet, and a blending brush. I chose the pop of passion blush balm in addition to the over $50 mystery add-ons.

    • When do they give you the choices? I added the code to my order but it didn’t give me options for what to add.

  20. So excited, just ordered one.

  21. Promo code “SUMMER” will get you one of 4 full size gifts (two different brushes, an eyeshadow, and a cheek product if I remember correctly) and free shipping.

    • GIFT4U code does the same thing, but you can’t use both.

      • I actually was able to use both! Got the two brushes.

        • They may not send you both. One promo code will often fall off so check your account.

  22. Hopefully someone posts what they are getting. I’m a little burnt out on mysteries right now.

    • Yes – please post any spoilers!

  23. There was no problems checking out this time. Thank god.

  24. Yay thanks!! Also use promo code gift4u for a full sized gift with any 25 dollar purchase!

    • Sorry, free gift with order but not full sized**

  25. Man, I am such a sucker for these. I need a 12-step program!!

    • Hi, my name is Emma and I’m a mystery box junkie ๐Ÿ˜‰

      • You too?? Maybe we could all get a group rate for therapy ?
