    • Thank you!

  2. On the Net-A-Porter blog it says 15 products are full size and 10 are travel size!!! This is the only calendar I’ve been waiting for! 😆 The Net-A-Porter kits earlier this year were off the charts!

    • Thanks for sharing! I could have sworn that I read that the Omorovicza moisturizer was full size too, but I noticed they didn’t state it in their description. If that’s true, then that’ll add another $150 to the $443 known value I calculated below! 🙂 This is one I’ve been waiting for too! 😀

      • These all look like minis? so there are many full sizes? stupid question- like real full sizes LOL.. what am I missing? I am certainly confused.. honestly, maybe I am just getting old but the pricing for lots of these cals just seems obscene especially if they go on sale later.. I am certainly a spender lol but I am a bang for buck kind of gal!

        • They probably all look like minis because of the size of the calendar I’m guessing. 🙂 Nah, it definitely has nothing to do with age when thinking these calendars are pretty expensive. 😉 Believe me, I wish they were cheaper too (like with anything else I could possibly spend my money on. lol!)!

          • ohh in that case this one is pretty sweet!

  3. Who knew an eye liner could be so controversial, lol.

    I might be poorer because of this website but what I’ve learned from others who so kindly take the time to explain and educate has been invaluable.

    All my thanks!

    Especially since my plan is to now wait out when this goes on sale.

  4. easy pass for me when there is a CEO oil there, it made me breakout.

  5. Is that a foil packet in a $260 calendar (Johanna Vargas) ?

    • It’s an eye mask 🙂

  6. Eyeco is not a bad brand.. It gets the job done.
    If anyone is like me and gets a couple subs a month for about 3 years, then you know we have enough black eyeliner to last a lifetime.
    This turned me off of this calendar as well. For the price, I just don’t like to see what I have come to know as, a filler.

    • Eyeliner made in China. Dollar store item to say the least Off putting!

    • Another turn off for me is the mascara….mascaras for me are filler items too.

      Eyeliners and mascara are well overplayed in too many boxes.

      • For me I will take the mascara, all of the samples have made it so I change my mascara every few weeks and never have to purchase it lol 🙂

  7. There is a Net-a-Porter coupon code for 15% off. It’s NEWNOW15. Personally, I am waiting for it to go on sale after the holidays. Last year, I was able to get one for under $90 including tax after the holidays. Looks really nice, just can’t pull the trigger.

    • Wow, $90 would be quite a deal for this! Fingers crossed it gets deeply discounted!!

      • Yeah, I picked up last year’s on sale for about $90 way after Christmas.

  8. This looks amazing…minus eyeko. Talk about a rotten apple in a glorious fruit bowl

  9. Wow this is the first advent I’m truly tempted by. I don’t use liquid eyeliner so is everyone just sick of getting the brand or is it terrible? I leave mine in the bathroom at work so no one to ask.

  10. Someone please explain the Eyeko thing? Is it bad?

    • I don’t use eyeliner so I can’t say whether or not it’s bad, but I have received a countless number of eyeko eyeliners and mascaras (though mainly eyeliners) in my subscription boxes. For people who get a lot of subscription boxes, it can just be annoying to be getting the same thing all the time. Especially something like eyeliner that you can only go through so fast (or don’t use at all).

    • Its not a bad formula as Ronda mentioned. But as Allison mentioned if you have sub’d a couple of boxes for a bit then you probably have received a dozen or more of the same black Eyeko liner. It came to the point where people were not even taking them from the work lunch table from me as everyone at my work probably has at least 2 I have given them lol. Its just a really common sub box item, like REALLY common.

    • I agree with the other ladies. I’m actually wearing Eyeko eyeliner, right now. It’s a decent formula and last through the day without smudging. Easy to apply. But like they said, it just gets annoying to continue getting the exact same item. It must just be an easy filler for the subs that they can call a full size product

    • Eyeko started as a great brand. They make tubing mascara, which is a formula that really works for me. And then a sad thing happened. The Hut group which owns look fantastic and glossybox bought Eyeko. They then strarter to Gil their boxes, and every other beauty box on earth with their products. They have become the spam of the beauty box world. It costs between 5-10 cents to manufacture a liquid eyeliner in the bulk they do. And they own many, many “brands.” Probably all mass produced and labels differently. If you look up the addresses on the labels on google earth they are shocking.

      I’m not sure if they now lose money on Eyeko and use it as a shelter or trade products with other companies to fill their boxes and inflate values.

      So that’s why people are on Eyeko overload and eyeliner overload in general.

      It’s also why I LOVE Test Tube and Beautyfix.

      I feel they do the best job providing real brands as a whole and seem to be better that some of the others when it comes to fake fillers.

      I’m totally sad because when it started out Eyeko was my favorite and they only mascara I wore. But my experience with the Hut group has left me looking for a new favorite.

      Boxy and Ipsy both either get the Eyeko products free, do a trade or there is some connection. The Avant crap they have put in boxes and as add ons has zero and I mean zero digital footprint and yet the product is 62$ Retail? um, no. But as long as I get two real items I’m happy with the box value.

      Almost everything on glossy and look fantastic boxes are really owned by the Hut group who then sets their own “retail price”.

      Test tube is my favorite even though the September tube wasn’t great because they are honest and present real independent brands.

      Bet you’re sorry about asking why everyone hates Eyeko:)

      • MSA is so educational. Thank you.

    • The Eyeko waterproof mascaras are the best I’ve ever used, and I’ve tried plenty. I don’t use liners, so I cannot vouch for those.

      • They are good, too. I think if people see them repeatedly in bags they automatically equate it with junk, but it’s not always true. I don’t mind getting repeats if it’s a decent product I also feel like maybe people try one product from a line, don’t like it, and just assume they won’t like anything else from the brand without actually testing them out. I think that it’s kind of a disservice to the brand because not every product is going to be perfect for everyone. Sunday Riley is an example for me. Their CEO cream really aggravates my rosacea, but the glow oil and tidal cream are fabulous with my skin type. If I hadn’t put my assumption aside I might have missed out on discovering 2 of my favorites. I think that it’s kind of a missed opportunity for people who don’t try different products, because that really is the point of sub boxes- to discover new favorites without having to shell out the full price. I try not to focus on other people’s opinions of products TOO much because there are so many varying factors and people’s preferences are wildly different.

    • I personally love their eye liner. It goes on so well and wears well. I think people just are tired of getting it.

  11. Oh, boy, here we go again – another insanely priced calendar.

    • If only I could afford this! I love everything. Even the eyeliner.

  12. I’d like Luna’s take.

    • I second that lol. I’d love to hear Luna’s expert opinion on this calendar!

      • What makes her the ‘expert? I see she’s a regular.

        • I’m FAR from an expert in anything in my opinion, but I really appreciate Shea’s vote of confidence in me! 😀

          • Far too humble, you are 😉

      • Thanks Tat & Shea for your vote of confidence! 😀

        Well, I definitely plan on getting this calendar, as this one’s been on my radar, and I’m really liking the products that are included…. even the ones that I won’t use (which seem to be very few) because I know they’ll still go to a very happy home.

        I was really hoping the 15% off coupon they currently have for new arrivals would work, but it didn’t apply to this calendar. Wah! It’s definitely a lot more expensive than last year’s which was $208, however I think the value is quite higher than last year’s too. I’m dying to do a value breakdown on this calendar though, because I just HAVE to know how truly close it is to its claimed $900 value (lol), but unfortunately they don’t give sizes of the products. However, I noticed in the description that they indicate a few products to be full-size. I don’t know if they stated “full-size” in the descriptions for all full-size products included (so there could be more), but here are the ones I saw:

        Votary Blemish Rescue Oil – $52
        Algenist Complete Eye Renewal Balm – $68
        Dr. Barbara Sturm Anti-Aging Primer – $80
        Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Mattes Matte Contour Liquid Lipstick – $26
        111 Skin Rose Gold Radiance Booster – $160
        Lixirskin Vitamin C Paste – $45

        Plus, here’s the breakdown value for one item:
        Joanna Vargas Eye Mask – $12

        Total known value: $443 (with 18 products still remaining!) Not bad! Especially considering I’d keep all of these products! lol

        One thing to note: Last year this calendar didn’t sell out, and it did first go on sale during a 20% off sitewide or beauty only sale in early January, then it eventually was discounted to 50% off and put in their Sale section, and then they had a 20% off Sale items in mid-January! I’m almost positive it didn’t go on sale (via a sitewide or beauty only sale) prior to the holidays. I ended up passing on getting another NAP calendar when it went on mega sale earlier this year since I already got it, but I don’t think I’ll have the strength to skip out on it again early next year if the same thing happens!! 😉

        • Luna is an expert because she always has the down low on seemingly every subscription box, gwp, or limited edition box ever lol. She should be put on MSA payroll!

          Thank you Luna!! I REALLY want to buy it now! But if there’s a chance it will go on sale then I will hold out lol! & it would be nice to find reviews on it before I get it.

          • he-he… what can I say…. when I have a passion & love for something (in this case beauty boxes), I go ALL in. lol! I can’t help but retain all of these useless dates and facts on these beauty boxes! My brain just soaks it up!!! 😀

            I don’t blame you for waiting. 🙂 I have a feeling it’ll go on sale eventually. I’m just getting it now because I want to have it by December to start opening it on the 1st, plus I can’t recall it going on sale before then, so I’m taking my chances. 😉 If it does go on sale next month, then I’ll make note of it for next year. 🙂 And if it goes on mega sale like it did earlier this year (where it got marked down to $62 (but some got it even lower thanks to cash back sites and card rewards)), then I’ll just HAVE to get another. 😉 I hope you enjoy it once you get your hands on it! 🙂

  13. Eyeko black eyeliner strikes again! Run away run away!

    • I was almost going to purchase until I saw the Eyeko. Did a double take and going to wait.
