  1. I have subscribed to the Macy’s beauty box from the beginning and although I have been relatively happy with the contents, delivery timeliness is horrible. Expected delivery was 2/13; 2/16 now, no delivery and no delivery information available. Each month delivery gets later with no correct delivery info available. I may live in the flyover zone, but delivery info should be available.

  2. I haven’t even been billed for my box yet. Has anyone else not been billed?

  3. I got my box today, the bag itself is a lot nicer than I thought it would be, although to be fair, all the Macy’s bags have been quite nice.
    The items are nice this month, I’ll use everything but the philosophy, I even like the perfume. That Tarte pencil is quite a find for me.

    • The only thing I thought was weird is that the Dior lip gloss sampler looks like it should really have four pods, but it only has three. Not sure why they chose to design it that way, but in person it looks like something is missing.

  4. I got my Macy’s box on Valentines Day. I adore this sub!! The bags, The products. I have used all but one of my products in the first 24 hours. Couldn’t be happier with this sub. I am very proud to say I’ve been with this sub since the beginning and I am always pleased!! 🙂

  5. My biggest issue with this sub is their customer service. Is there a number where you can talk to someone about the beauty box? All I get is a Macy’s rep who wants an order number and has no idea what a beauty box even is. In November I got NINE beauty boxes and was only charged for one. (Happy me) I called Macy’s and was told someone would call me back. It never happened. The agent didn’t seem to understand what even happened. I have issues since and they just don’t get it.

  6. I’m kind of confused/frustrated with this subscription. I ordered it in November and then it billed 5 days early and I got an email that said I would not be getting the box because my payment was not available.
    (I always use a prepaid debit card for my sub boxes so I know I won’t go overboard/budget and buy 30 boxes that I don’t need 😜)
    When I called customer service to see if I would be able to get the box, the very next day, I was told that I could NOT get the box because the subscription was closed to new subscribers. The next month I tried to order again and was told the subscription was still closed.
    Now, this month I just got billed for two boxes that I did not want and it messed up my Allure payment for a box I DID want. I don’t understand how I ordered a box 3 months ago, that I could not buy, but then I get charged 3 months later for TWO subscriptions that I did not order. I have tried to call customer service multiple times and no one can answer my questions. I’m very frustrated. The worst part is that they said they supposedly can’t refund/cancel my DOUBLE subscription until BOTH boxes arrive and are returned.
    I’m returning them and making sure they are BOTH CANCELED.This is too confusing. I never have this issue with Play, Boxycharm, or Allure.

  7. Does anyone want to swap or sell me the whole box with the info and coupon included.

    • Well, honestly, the value of the whole box with the coupon to *me* is like fifty bucks.

      I mean, I am not offering, I am just saying it’s unlikely anyone would sell it to you for what they actually paid for it.

  8. First month with Macy’s and I’m already frustrated. Got a message that my card was expired so I updated it 4 days ago but my Beauty Box subscription is still listed as “suspended”. I wanted to contact customer service by email but you need an order number to do that. Which I obviously don’t have. I guess this means I won’t be getting my Beauty Box this month? Ugh. I should have stuck with Sephora. I only switched to Macy’s because Sephora quit doing the perfume samples.

  9. I planned to cancel in January but when I saw the cute bag I decided against it. Unfortunately I didn’t update my CC in time to receive it. Was hoping that February would be just as good but this is disappointing. It may be time for me to finally cancel, the FOMO is real though!

  10. I’m afraid it’s way past time to cancel this sub. I had such excitement for it and for Sephora. Unfortunately, I find them both to be utterly disappointing. I will continue with Beauty Fix, Allure and Ipsy. I would love to keep Boxycharm as well, but not unless they resolve their awful customer service issues and bad business practices. As many others have said, I personally do not need any more makeup bags. And as for the gift card? I am about 1.5 hours away from a Macy’s store so my coupon is only worth $5. Earlier this week I tried to use it online. I ordered a NYX concealer for $5. The site would not let me place the order. I called Customer Service and was on the phone with them for almost an hour and then I got disconnected while waiting for the rep’s supervisor. The issue was finally resolved by live chat. It seems that the coupon cannot be used for $5 exactly. They added a penny to make it $5.01 and it went through just fine. Overall, waaaay too much work for a $5 NYX concealer. 😸

  11. I am enjoying my Macy’s box every month, I am finding some new to me products, and use the $5 coupon at least once, if not twice. Also free shipping on beauty purchases is great. I usually buy something in the $10 range and get it for half off.

  12. I only subscribe for the bags! They need to put a $10 gift card in each month. $5 is not worth my time!

  13. I don’t sub to this box, but $15 is just too steep, for $10 it’d be an ok box. For $15 it’s a no go for me. This month looks disappointing, those Tony Moly masks are on all the time for like $1.

    • Well, I think a coupon that gives you $5 off *twice* raises the value of this box considerably.

      • How do you use the coupon twice?

        • You can use it both online and at Macy’s stores. Online you enter the code on the front, and at a store they scan the barcode on the back.

          • I didn’t know that. Thank you!

      • Not unless you have a Macy’s near and can use it twice. The Macy’s by me closed 3/4 years ago and now to visit one i would have to drive 120 miles round trip

      • Yeah, but some of us can’t use it twice because Macy’s is over 2 plus hours away.

  14. I like this box! I can’t wait to get it. I don’t have any of the samples. I don’t usually like sayings either, but this something I’ll get personal meaning out of.

  15. This is the worst box they have put out. I am dissapointed.

  16. I subbed because I liked how January looked. I far prefer January to this.
    If they had put in a decent sized lippie instead of a blister pack sample, it would have improved things. The sample, while of a high-end product, is still a sample and feels a bit cheap. I also agree with those who do not like sayings on their bags. Am I the only one who would rather skip bags altogether? I have many from my beauty boxes and don’t need any more. Put the money into the items instead perhaps?

  17. I’m glad I cancelled. I’ve had this sub since it first began, some months I like, and some months I could care less. I actually use nearly all of the products and like them though. What I wanted was more luxury products, for example I would have loved to get more Lancôme, Este Lauder, L’Occitane, products of that nature. Expensive products that a normal income person may not be able to indulge on. This is what I wanted. Instead I feel like I got another Sephora play bag with slightly larger samples. Not good. I cancelled Sephora and never looked back. I can buy Sephora stuff easily. Macy’s take note, Macy’s is known as luxury, perhaps actually include luxury items on a regular basis. Get rid of the bag, lower the price to 10 dollars a month and I will return. Until then au revoir.

    • I get you, but Macy’s hasn’t really had the reputation of luxury since they started showing up in every mall. Yes, they carry some luxury items, but for the most part, they are better known as a middle class mall store now that has great deals. Sephora, imo, is far more luxury than Macy’s. I mean, Macy’s carries NYX!

      • I would never consider Macy’s to be luxury even if they do carry some luxury brands

  18. I’m glad I cancelled this subscription…. about the only thing i would have been interested in is the IT cleanser and I just bought a kit from QVC that has a full sized one!

    • Tracey – I bought that same kit from QVC – I needed a new regimen and found that IT may be it!! What a great price for all of the items. Have you used the foundation serum? i don’t wear makeup often, and I looked like a clown with it on. I think I used too much…brush is super soft though!

      • Suzanne, I really like the foundation! That’s the main reason I bought the set, because I wanted to try it. It’s quick and easy to put on, especially when I just want a little coverage. But it does really even out my skin and cover redness, ect..
        Maybe you need a different color of the foundation? You don’t need a lot of it either so maybe that was your problem.

        • Are you guys talking about the Confidence in Your Skin Collection for $97?

          • Yes Juju but I got it for $78!! They had a one day sale a couple of Saturdays ago.

        • Tracey-I think I put waaaay to much on!! I got the light as I’m pretty white, but it made me look yellow. I’m afraid to try again but I will with less!

  19. Irony of ironies. I have been eyeing the Dior gloss for months. $34 everywhere (per Jaclyn Hill’s recommendation.) I cancelled before I received one box…this would have been my first…I know I’ll never use those $5 coupons. Sorry to miss out on that, for sure. I’ll have to buy a whole tube… 🙂 happy valentine’s day to me…001

    • I guess I didn’t cancel on time? February box is on its way. Hmmm…If you cancel after the 10th of the month, you will get the following month’s box as I read it now.

      • Give your coupon to me if you are not gonna use it, lol! 😃

  20. Considering ipsy does bags and Sephora offer a drawstring pouch, I wish Macy’s would drop the bag and lower the price to $10. Macy’s, take heart if you are ready this.

    • Right! I say keep that $5 beauty coupon and lower the sub cost, it doesn’t count as a coupon if you are paying for it. I don’t shop at Macy’s anyways.

    • I got this one for the first 3 months, then cancelled. That is the same thing I had said. If they lower the cost to $10 and took out the coupon (that I never used, nor will with any regularity) then I’d go back. The samples are very small and $15 is just too much for them.

  21. This is a swing and a miss for me.

  22. I don’t see why this is $15. It’s the same stuff as Ipsy and Sephora, but for $5 more.

    • But Macy’s also gives you a $5 coupon that you can use twice (and one time it was even a $10 coupon).

    • The premise is you get a $5 coupon – so if you end up buying something that month you get $5 back but of course then you are making a purchase and spending more money

  23. Is it too late to get this box?

    • Yes, it’s too late. You have to subscribe by the 15th of the prior month. I subscribed in early January because I wanted the January box and it never came. There are FAQ’s on their web page. I cancelled without receiving a single box.

  24. Had to look up the philosophy item, and it has alcohol listed twice in the ingredient list. Seriously, alcohol in an eye cream, of all things. Nice going, philosophy!

  25. I really like the products! However, I much prefer a bag without the sayings. Even my 13-year-old daughter doesn’t want them.

  26. I am excited about the cleanser and FYI I have Jan. bag up for swap. Wondering though whats up with billing. It still hasn’t posted in my account and usually they are first.

    • Same to me !

      • They bill between the 1st and the 8th.

    • Michelle-I’m on the swap waitlist. Is there another way I can buy your bag?

      • No but you can send me your address and I will happily send it to you.

        • What a sweetie you are… 🙂

          • She is Noelle-I offered a trade, hopefully she’ll take me up on it!

  27. Totally not happy with yet another lipstick card!

    I will say that the It Cosmetics cleanser is really nice.

  28. Not sure about this one. By looking at it I wouldn’t say $15 worth. I guess we will see. I would prefer my bag phrase free (most of the time), this bag looks like it’s perfect for a young adult. Not bad enough to unsubscribe.

  29. I like this one too! It’ll be my first and last. I wish I got January’s bag though. Not digging this one.

  30. Ugh, not looking so good this month. No wonder they waited so long…this one is on the chopping block for me. Last month was the best one for me so far.

  31. Why do companies think we want corny sayings on our bags?

  32. hmmm this is my first Macy’s bag and I’m not sure how I feel about the items. I received the I’m Real mask in a different scent with an ipsy bag.. actually 2 masks. Looking forward to trying the philosophy though.

  33. Liz, are you doing a comparison between the Macys and Allure boxes? Just wondering bcuz I’m on the fence. ☺

  34. Tarte? I like it.

  35. Oops I guess Macy’s does their own corny bag sayings….sorry So Susan Color Curate!

    And the beauty samples get smaller and smaller…

    • I do like the spoiler picture….very pretty

  36. I like this one! 🤩
