  1. Well, I ordered this box and a couple others (Popsugar Must Have/Limited Women’s and Neiman Marcus) to open on Christmas with my 30 year old daughter. We had so much fun going through everything in this box, and there were plenty of items for each of us. Some items were better suited to my daughter’s skin coloring and her age. That said, three items listed above and on the insert inside the box were not included, and we couldn’t find any substitutions, as one might expect. : ( One of the lipsticks came in a different color, but that worked out well, so minus the three items (about $73+ worth) not being in there, the box was still a hit. $250 was a fair amount to spend on something that didn’t contain all the items it said it would, but in the end we still had FUN! Might be more cautious next year with this box however.

  2. I don’t see a review for this box. Did Liz not get it?? Looks like it’s out of stick but I’d still love to see a review. 🙂

    • Out of stock – not stick!

  3. there is a Mr Porter grooming kit too 🙂

  4. NAP website says 16 full size and 16 travel size. List here has 12 items marked as full size….any idea what the other four full size items are? Thanks!

  5. I don’t know what to do I really want this. If the Burberry lip and the other red product were any other color than red i would have already signed up. This is such a great deal for items I never get to try. I guess I will think it over.

  6. Does anybody know what that white, leather looking thing is in the middle of the picture?

    • That leather looking item is the case for the Sara Chapman spot stickers.

      • Oooh, fancy….. Thanks Gwhiz! 🙂

  7. The closest Nordstrom is 5 hours away-as is Sephora. I had to rely on stalking websites and the random catalog for new makeup and skincare. Subscription boxes have helped me find new products and some high end ones I would Never have considered. (Beautyfix!!!) That said-this box appeals to me as a way to try a Lot of new things without waiting for the dribs and drabs from Play. (The exclamation point just never happens when I open this box) and Allure. Canceling part of my annual trek to Nordstrom to purchase this-and hoping the lipsticks look good on me!

  8. : / so tempting! Sure wishing Santa would pick this up for me and then he wouldn’t be surprised at the $195 charge on the credit card statement.

  9. Ordered one as I loved my kit last year and think I will this year too. But I’m confused. On their website it states this box includes 16 full size and 16 travel items, but I only count 12 full size on the list from above. Anybody know what the other 4 full size items are?

    • Also interested in the answer to this question!

    • Hi! I think they are including products that are sold in smaller sizes as FS items. For example, both the Oribe product and the Soveral mask are sold on the website in varying sizes. Too bad we get the smallest size!

    • Just a theory…
      I wouldn’t be surprised if they’re considering the following items full-size:
      – Sarah Chapman Spot Sticker (10 pieces)
      – Cleanse by Laura Napier Wipes (3)
      – Chantecaille Gold Energizing Recovery Eye Mask
      – Tenoverten Polish Remover & Cleanser Cloths
      I think it’s kind of like how boxes call one single sheet mask a full-sized product, when a lot of times you can get that same mask in a pack of 5 or more.

      • Couldn’t stop thinking about this set. Products are new to me and I will use them all. Going for it! ?

        • Woo-hoo!!! My earlier posts were a weak attempt at trying to talk myself out of it. Of course, I gave in and purchased it the day it came out. 🙂 I hope you enjoy the box!!!!

          • Glad to have a partner in crime!

          • Got it! I kept checking the website, my husband finally said “stop losing sleep over that box and just buy it. I’ll get it for you as part of your Christmas gift.”
            I can’t believe that trick worked. ?

          • Yay! It’s a great gift!!!?

  10. Argh…too expensive for me. Good thing it’s mostly facial products and not hair products. Otherwise it would be hard to resist. Lol

  11. Mostly love it – except for the lipsticks. None in my colour. So once I put in perspective that with the exchange rate to Cad$, the box plus shipping plus duties is essentially my Burberry rain boots that I want to get… it’s easy to say no given that all the lipsticks would just collect dust in a drawer.
    Plus, my Sephora cart is full waiting for the 14th, and then at least I know that what I get is exactly the shade I want. On the other hand I would have bought this for my mom without a second thought but she told me this weekend in very clear terms not to get her a single beauty / cosmetic thing, she is drowning in them. I do believe that for those buying as gifts, the recipient would adore it – it has lovely products.

  12. Wow!! This looks fantastic. If I hadn’t just done a massive Sephora haul during the VIB sale I would go for it, but I can’t justify the expense right now. Will definitely be watching for some things to pop up in swaps.

    • Boy that’s expensive but looks great. How fast will this sell out ?

    • I’m in the same boat. Bought a bunch of stuff during Sephora’s VIB sale and also bought the PopSugar Limited Edition Holiday Box, so I can’t justify spending this much money right now. But if it’s still available when I get paid next, we’ll see how things go!

      • I’m in the same boat…. Maybe next payday. 😞😔

  13. I am so torn about this box. Have been stalking the site for it to arrive. Wish the lipsticks were different colors. That would definitely sell me. Even though that eye mask has a high retail value, I tend not to like that brand as it is heavily perfumed (or at least all I have tried has been). Have spent a LOT over the weekend so am pausing rather than automatically buying.

  14. I debated for about 5 minutes lol. Pulled the gun even though the only full size I care about is the Kevyn Aucoin one. The samples of skin care stuff makes it worth it for me. Plus, I don’t have any of the stuff in this set.

  15. Debating getting this box, but just this past week I’ve bought the Adidas box, another Rachel Zoe fall box, dermstore box, popsugar november box.

    Oh no typing that out I need to pull back a bit.

    That said, this would be the perfect box if they threw in a full size or even travel size candle. I think their sales would probably jump 100% lol nobody can resist a full size DIPTIQUE or NEST

  16. I have been waiting for this box and purchased. I do not subscribe to any beauty only boxes and last years box was great. What I do not keep I am sure my granddaughter and niece will take off my hands. I had checked out Sephora and the one box I was interested in was sold out already.

    • That box is always available in stores Connie!

      • Thank you for the information. May have to head to the store.

        • I’m so jealous you have an actual Net-A-Porter store you can go to. 🙂

          • I think she was mentioning that the Sephora store has the box I saw on the Sephora website that was sold out. I wish I had a Net-a-Porter store to wander thru.

      • Boy that’s expensive but looks great. How fast will this sell out ? What stores is this in?

  17. A good deal but I really don’t need or use most of it. And I’m already on overload with what I do have so this is easy to miss up.

  18. I like this – but it’s a big purchase and I’m torn with Sephora’s VIB 20% off sale this weekend and upcoming Black Friday deals.

    Does net-a-porter have any sale or discount codes? Do they run any Black Friday specials?

    Thanks to anyone who has insights!!

    • I’m sort of in the same boat. Today I was going to make one final Sephora online purchase of some skincare sets I’ll be gifting, and they’re not cheap! Even with the 20% discount. Then, Nordstrom, Nordstrom Rack and Hautelook will be having their 10-point event soon AND Bluemercury will be having their 20% off sale too! So I think I’ll check back in with this box in early December once those shopping events have passed to see how I feel about spending $200 on this.

      • Thanks, Luna, for sharing your thoughts. So you think this set will still be around in early December? I wasn’t sure how fast it would sell out.

        I love lip products – as well as beauty and skin care in general – so I’m keeping my eye on this set. But also trying to scope out Sephora and the other Black Friday deals.

        • I’m not sure if it’ll still be around in early December, but since I’m not crazy excited about this one I’m willing to risk it. Plus, based on the MSA comments, there doesn’t seem to be quite the demand as there was for previous boxes. I usually feel the comments on MSA is generally a pretty good indicator of how quickly a box will sell out.

          However, I do think this box is an AWESOME value, and I would get it in a heartbeat if I didn’t already own some of it. I think if this box appeals to you, you should definitely get it now. It’s a 75% discount on the products, and I don’t think you can get a better Black Friday deal than that! 🙂 (whoa! did I just talk myself into getting this???)

          • Funny! I guess this is a good opportunity to reflect on what do i really want to buy. I am trying to reflect on what could I cut from the current line up. Thinking of cutting Sephora play sub as I think I would rather put the $120 annual cost towards limited edition boxes like this that I know I will really appreciate. I wish this was more clear cut for me!

        • I feel the same way. I’m ambivalent about the box which is not a good indicator that I will be swayed to make the purchase. I will wait a few days and see how I feel.
          The past years, I’ve been over the moon with the box that I bought multiples, not this year.

  19. Actually the Chantecaille Gold Energizing Eye Mask is $195.00 for a box of 8, not 1 mask.

    • Hm, the details section of this box lists the Chantecaille Gold Energizing Eye Recovery Mask: 19g/ 0.67fl.oz

      And that matched up with the size listed on the full-size product detail page:

      I’ll look into it more.

      • Yep, looks like Net-A-Porter listed the full-size oz for the single eye mask. I’ll update the post accordingly. Thanks for bringing this to my attention.

        • Awk! I ordered it based on the size listed on the web page – are you sure it’s only one? The set of 8 is 19g and listed as ‘mask’ not masks… bummer if it’s one

  20. A bit disappointed. After all this time holding my breath for this box, I’m underwhelmed. I’ve budgeted for a pricey box but I’m not sure I want this. ?

    • I’m a bit on the fence too. I counted 32 products, but I would only keep 21 of them. Out of the 21, 15 would be new to me which is less than half of the box. While I never mind receiving dupes of products I already have, especially of high end products like these, I’m really only excited to receive 3 duplicates (Sunday Riley Good Genes, By Terry Lip Baume and Tata Harper moisturizer). So after breaking this down, my instinct (and logic) is telling me to pass, but I just know I’ll be dancing around this for a while.

      • Me too. I’ll wait a few days and see how I feel then.
        Most likely I’ll buy at least one but not likely to buy multiples like last year.
        I like products I can use, most of these I already have and some that I’m not interested in at all.

  21. Not interested in the products enough for $195. I haven’t gone through everything from last years box. I’ll pass on this one.

  22. I actually think this looks pretty good – definitely value for your money. Whether you are interested in those products is a different story

  23. I have never spent this much on a box before, so I am hesitating. But I do really want it.

    It’s funny, I would probably spend $40 each on 5 limited edition boxes without thinking about it, and this really isn’t different from that, but there is something about the size of the charge that is holding me back.

    • I feel the same way, but I think it is different. You can open 5 different packages!

      • Or I could spend $200 on Amazon and open like 12 packages because they nearly always ship my items individually…

        Probably just saving my money for Black Friday (online only) instead.

  24. Yikes! That would not allow me to buy any other boxes for the rest of the year ?!

  25. Eye recovery mask has a value of $195. I can’t imagine anything would make my eyes that much better with one application…
    The values on these items are crazy.
    Not for me.

  26. disappointed…I have been waiting and stalking the site every day..Too many things I don’t need,and not enough that I want.

  27. i’m sooo tempted, I love net-a-porter.

  28. wow. pricey 🙂

    • That’s what I was thinking. The value is there though but I won’t be. lol

      • Lol. Yeah. I need to spend the money on my kids and family this time of year.
