  1. I’m getting 322 but when I checked my account it shows the products that are for 977 ! Has this happened to anyone else?

  2. I guess everything would be great… except… they gave me the box with Youthmud. I’m also seventeen years old. And wrinkles/aging is most definitely not listed on my Play Profile.

    I think this is pretty blatant evidence that whatever algorithm they’re using to give people “tailored” boxes isn’t really doing it right.

  3. For those of you who are not looking forward to bright pink lip gloss because it’s bright pink — I got mine today and it’s practically clear.

    (On behalf of those of us who like bright pink, though, I wish it were pinker).

    Also, I was a person who mentioned that since I’ve had Play I’ve been buying a ton of stuff at Sephora. What happens is, they send me something, either in the 3 free samples, or in a Sephora Favorites box, that I never knew I needed, and then I have to buy it. Then I get 3 free samples, see how that works… Well, this morning I tried a new free sample that is awesome, Naked Skin Corrector in Peach… it’s Urban Decay. I will probably have to buy it. (At which point I will get 3 free samples, and sometimes more stuff than that).

  4. Just saw the Sephora lipgloss in a pretty warm nude color on Instagram. I know only certain colors are made for these deluxe sample sizes but a nude color would’v been so muh better than a hot pink color for winter.

  5. I still haven’t received my shipping info for this month’s box. Anyone else having the same issue? I live in Florida.

    • Mine hasn’t shipped either and I live in Virginia 🙁

    • I got my box yesterday with no shipping notice. This is 2 months in a row. It’s also earlier than it has been in the past.

    • I recieved my notification this morning that my box had shipped. Tracking wasn’t available yet. Just a few minutes ago, I went to get the mail, and there was my Play package, lol. So strange!

      So don’t be discouraged by not having a shipping notification yet! It might just mysteriously appear!!!

      • @jenny @lisa @alisonka. Thank you ladies! I appreciate everything. I hope it shows up soon???

    • Yep,mine is still processing as well! I live in Alabama and I feel like I’m always the last to get any boxes! ( still waiting on nov Popsugar,
      Fall BOS and my Serendipity is making me real nervous bc it hasn’t even charged me yet!) oh well, at least there’s this lovely site that lets me see all the spoilers!?

      • I know! I love this website!

  6. How long do you usually have to wait on the waiting list? It seems as I’ve been on it for a long time! Thank you!

  7. My husband is going to kill me. I have been SO into beauty boxes since I found out about them! So today a spot was open for Sephora Play and of course I grabbed it. I already have Allure Beauty Box, Beauty Box 5, and Birchbox. (Plus I’ve been resisting Ipsy for a while now… Its a losing battle.) Lol. To some people I’m sure that’s cheap but for me its not lol.

    I really am not sure if the Sephora Play waiting list is a marketing tactic, or if its really so popular they can’t keep up. (I’m pretty sure they can keep up with demand.) Either way it worked on me. I got the open spot email at 6pm and didn’t find it until 8pm. I signed up for the open spot email ten days ago. I am sure in two hours the spots would already be full! But nooo. In my opinion its just tactical to build hype.

    Here’s the thing though, I’m not even mad!!! Ten bucks a month is nothing. Especially for Sephora. I don’t know if I’ve ever seen anything at Sephora for ten bucks that’s worth buying. Well “played” Sephora, well PLAYed.

    • I’ve actually never shopped at Sephora, but was excited to start! However it seems as I’ve been on the waiting list for a long time. Oh well, I guess life goes on without Sephora!

  8. Got 977. Pretty upset I got the este edit instead of the caudalie product…. but whatever it’ll get used. Only thing I won’t use is lip gloss. Still a good box tho, very excited about the glamglow supermud!! and Laura mercier!!! And while I would probably prefer replica, the pop sounds like a smell I would like so fingers crossed! The previous few perfumes have been complete duds for me.

    Still can’t believe they did a glow theme with no highlighter lol. Can’t wait to see what next months theme is, I hope it’s something fun for the holidays?

  9. So underwhelmed. 🙁

    If you haven’t tried Glamglow by now, you probably don’t want to. Or if you do, you don’t want to try it all that much. And a Sephora lip gloss?! Ugh!

    So that means other than the original, black Glamglow, I got a lipgloss, a perfume sample, a Caudalie sample, and the Laura Mercier stick. I may use the Laura Mercier, and I am ok with that one sample. But this is hardly the cutting edge, new product spotlight box I was expecting. Where is the Benefit lippie sample that is a lipstick and lip liner in one? Or the Estee Edit turn up or down? Those are 2 great lippie choices. I’m sure I could mention plenty other non lippie options too if I bothered to look for them. But all these products are established products from the brands except for the one box that got an Estee Edit product and maybe the purple Glamglow, which I haven’t tried, but then again I didn’t get it in my box either.

    Ugh! I needed to vent. I will give them through December to impress me, hoping for a holiday miracle, then I will cancel if they let me down yet again. I never would’ve paid $10 for my November box if I had known what was in it. Better to just risk missing out and resort to ebay if necessary. 🙁 🙁 🙁

  10. Aw maaaaaan! 985 would have been ideal for me. That Caudalie moisturizer is of of my very favorites and it’s my favorite Glamglow is a tossup between the black and white. I’m getting 977.

    I also kinda wish the Caviar Stick wasn’t Rosegold. It’s a good color so I understand why it was included, but it’s the usual color included in collections and stuff, so I already have two and it’s the color I use least often. Oh well.

  11. I’m getting 977 and I’m pretty disappointed that we’re the only ones not getting the Caudalie.

    • Me too!

    • I am too! I love Caudalie and dislike Estee Edit. I gave away my lip gloss from last month in a swap as an extra. I guess I can always use makeup remover so not as bad as gloss! ?
      Thinking I may change my profile after this month. I have too many concerns for skin listed. At least their variations are similar in value and mine does fit my current profile well.

    • Same here, I just used the last but of my Caudalie moisturizing sorbet and I love it so much, but of course I’m getting the one box that doesn’t have it. That really confuses me on how they do the variations because I’ve ordered it from Sephora ?

  12. 977 is the ? Box.

  13. For anyone who is curious, all box numbers other than 977 are up on Instagram which would mean that 977 is the box spoiled above with no number.
    985 gets Youthmud, Caudalie, and Pop. 322 gets Gravitymud, Caudalie, and Replica.

    • That kinda sucks. I was really hoping for something else in place of the primer. Oh well. The lipstick color is horrible, but love glam glow and just happy it’s not the blue one!

    • I just got my 977 box and can confirm that the box with no number above is this box. Caviar stick is in Rosegold.
