  1. I am so impressed with the Tarte bronzer and the case it came in. I really think their boxes are getting better.

  2. Last month I received a $10 off coupon but I have not seen anyone else commenting about receiving the same. I already used my coupon and assumed that it was a new feature in the box (upping it from the $5). Has anyone else received this as well?

    • Once in a while they will send a 10.00 card vs 5.00 but it’s not every month and you never really know when they will do it. I think MSA announces it when they do

    • Can you use the coupon on your next box? If so how do you do it?

      • No, you have to use it to make a purchase from their beauty department. Can’t use it on your subscription.

    • I received my $5 coupon and have not been able to get it to work online. I have even attempted to call CS but not successful yet. Did anyone else have this problem?

      • Nope. You go to check out and on the right hand side in the top corner where it says “promo code” you just put the code in that box and hit “apply ” and it takes it off. You have to spend more then 5.00 though to get it to work. Like 5.01 or 10.00 or whatever. It can’t be right at 5 dollars or under.

  3. I am really liking this month!

  4. If anyone wants to swap the Bronzer fot the KVD liner in sephora plays bag this month let me know

    • I have always wanted to try Kat Von D’s Tattoo eyeliner! Leg me know if you had any takers. Thanks!

  5. Yaaaayyyyyyy rocking month!!!

  6. I’ve been thinking of dropping this box as I do have excess product, though I py my hair stylist in skin care and makeup. However these boxes have been getting better than at first and I worry that I will get fomo if I cancel. I always use at least three items, so it’s a win for me.

  7. NICE! These are all new items for me to try- super excited this month.

    I buy and try…toss it if I don’t like it. I’m not a hoarder and everything I get in, I’ll use and then move on.

    I don’t quite understand why some posters end up with so much overload- why buy if you aren’t going to try it?

    • Oh I hoard! But I’m like that with everything! I need to keep it for a while to prove I didn’t use it – then purge!

    • I think some people have a lot of subs (like me) and even if they try everything (like me), they can’t use up even these little samples before there’s more to try. That’s where product overload comes in.

  8. Boring!

  9. *Finally* an all-makeup bag!

  10. I am loving that bag!

  11. Oh no, I don’t like this month’s! I was hoping for something better than last month. The value is much better, but that’s it. If I see that It Cosmetics eyebrow pencil one more time I’m going to scream. IT IS THE WORST EYE BROW PENCIL EVER. EVER!! The best items here are the Tarte bronzer and Benefit mascara, but they’ve been is so many boxes/promos that I already have 2-3 backups of each. I won’t use the Dermablend or Nudestix products because I’m anti- glowy/illuminating/highlighting products. The bag is actually usable, but who really needs another one of those? The only thing I’ll use is the $5 coupon and obviously that’s not worth $15. I haven’t been charged yet, so I wonder if it’s too late to cancel? Otherwise, if someone really wants this bag, let me know, I would be happy to sell it!

    • I believe you get until the 10th to cancel your subscription.

    • I canceled last month and thought I was good, but I just got the email saying my order is on it’s way! Oh well I like the bag.

      • No, you have to cancel before the 10th of the month BEFORE to not get this month’s! So, you would have had to cancel BEFORE April 10th to not get May’s bag! The bag itself is all I’m truly excited about. Glad I’ve already cancelled too as find it boring and missing some pizzazz and just not worth it for the items that i even like or will use! Might come back tho if I see a good one I want. Their CS isn’t the best either!

    • I have 3 of these Tarte bronzers now (this box, How to be a redhead box, and also from the new Sephora Glow box). Hopefully I like it!

    • Maybe not subscribe to so many boxes. I only stuck with Macy’s and every month is a winner.

    • Happy to buy this bag off you after you get it!!! I turned on notifications for this comment so reply back here if you still wanna sell your bag.

      • I’ll likely be posting my full bag! I’ve got vampire skin so bronzers and highlighters are a total waste for me.

  12. Did anyone get charged for this month yet?
    I had a problem with them last month (which i’m not to sad about seeing last months box) where I did not get charged or sent the box and their customer service did nothing about it. I would understand maybe if I was a new subscriber but I have been a subscriber since December. So please let me know if you got charged yet!

    • I just got charged . And I canceled last month.

    • I just got charged too. I didn’t cancel last month, but I just did. I gave it two months. I’m done.

    • I had the same issue last month, but this month I got charged, received an email notification today.

      • Although, I should add, considering the items and the bag last month, I was very happy about that glitch.

  13. The first time this box actually looks good to me!

  14. That looks like a really good box!! Still wish it were only $10 though, but May’s box looks great!

  15. We had 2 months of almost entirely skin care for March and April. So I’m happy to get some makeup back in May. It’s a good mascara – I’ve loved the samples I’ve received – and I’m fine with trying a new (to me) eyebrow item. There are 3 types of bronzer/highlighter which is kind of a bummer for someone who uses none of that. BUT, looks like this would be a great time to try it and with some nice brand name products. SO, even though I feel a bit old for highlighter and bronzer (no offense to others meant, just my comfort zone), I’m tryin’ it! : )

    Oh, and it’s been since February that we’ve had a lippie (and that was just a card sample). Bring on a good lippie in June, please!

    • I dont use highlighters either so I got a tip from someone to put a few drops in your lotion for your legs and arms. It gives your skin a little shimmer.

      • That’s a great idea, thanks for sharing!!! 🙂 You can also use highlighters and bronzers as eye shadows, they work great!

      • great idea! Thanks!

  16. I canceled last month and there is no FOMO here. I am proud of myself

    • Yay! It can be hard to cancel. Good for you! : )

    • Same here! haha I would have gifted half the bag and have kept the bronzer, mascara, & perfume, but the bronzer & mascara would have been duplicates, as I’ve received them before (from somewhere I can’t remember) and I wouldn’t doubt that I also already have a sample of that perfume waiting to be used too.

  17. If this box was $10 I would definitely be more interested in it … the sizes do not make it worth $15…your getting bigger products in Ipsy for $10…I get 2 Ipsy bags so I’ll stick with that, for $5 more ($20 for both bags) you’re getting 10 products and the sizes are pretty good

  18. If I sign up now, do I receive May’s box?

    • My experience is that you receive the next month’s bag and not the current one.

      • Yes, this was my experience, too. If you sign up now you will get June as your first box.

    • When I signed up I had to sign up before the 15th of the previous month to receive the current month bag. So you would have to sign up before 04/15 in order to receive May bag or before May 15 in order to receive June.

    • Thank you everyone! I wanted the eyebrow pencil as I have the deluxe size and liked it. Bummer 🙁

      • Why not spend the $24 and buy the brow pencil then? It’s only 9 more than if you bought the bag, and you’re getting something you love. Plus, if you have a coupon or Ulta points or anything like that, it’s less than 9 bucks.

  19. Hated last month…..LOVE this months!

  20. I finally canceled after last month and I’m ok without this month. The bag is cute but I don’t need it or anything in it.

  21. Awesome bag this month!! Very useful.

  22. Wow great bag. That bronzer is amazing as is that eyebrow pencil! But I hear for red headed folks that “universal” doesn’t really apply with this pencil. Just doesn’t match with red hair.

    • I have naturally red hair and use this in my daily brow routine. I pair it with the Anastasia Beverly Hills dipbrow pomade in auburn and it works great.

      • I just use the Anastasia by itself. 🙂 But I’m pretty minimalist.

    • Fellow redhead here, try the Tarte bronzer on your eyebrows, it’s amazing! I received a sample in an Ipsy bag two years ago and tried it on my brows, I use it every day, a little goes a long way. I’m still using my original sample in the shade Park Avenue Princess, it’s almost gone now, but fortunately I received another this month in my How to Be a Redhead box.

  23. Finally! Looks like a decent month ❤❤
