Hi I just noticed that the Fall 2021 box is out on website, indicating it is the last one of 2021. Additionally, it is listed as being a promo price and ends in less than 2 hours. So now it’s $159 for this limited time offer then going up to $179.

I have enjoyed the boxes thus far however this past box I wasn’t that excited about. Guess all the past boxes were pretty heavy, overloaded with larger full size products. Also I think the last box was the only one that included a guide but it was all products. Not the ones we each actually get. Don’t understand how you know that everything is in box therefore not missing anything.

Just wanted to pass along the new box info.

The other Lee

The box actually was at $109 for two hours after the last live event. The price now is $159. I don’t think it is going up again. They forgot to remove the text about the price increase.
They have a live event that ties in with the box. If you watch, you can see all items that are supposed to be in the box. I think that is why no booklet.

Angel

It would be super helpful if MSA had a post for the June/ Summer 2021 VIP box (-_-)

Mine was also missing the product info booklet/ card. I think I would have felt slightly more excited about the box if the booklet/ card was at my fingertips so that I could see product info and values. I felt very meh and disappointed last night when I opened it.

This morning I looked up everything that came in my box. Here’s the breakdown I came up with:

IT’S A 10 BLOW DRY MIRACLE H2O SHIELD (2 oz) — $9
IT’S A 10 BLOW DRY MIRACLE GLOSSING LEAVE IN (2 oz) — $12
AFORE CBD EFFUSIVE (4 oz) — $50
DEFENAGE 2-MINUTE REVEAL (2.5 oz) — $74
STACKED SKINCARE DEMAPLANING TOOL — $75
MANNA KADAR POSH CONTOUR/SHADOW/BLUSH — $33
DOLL 10 PERFECT POUT LIP EXFOLIANT (.17 oz) — $20
BEAUTYSTAT UNIVERSAL C SKIN REFINER (1 oz) — $80
GLYTONE ENHANCE BRIGHTENING SERUM (1 oz) — $74
GLO SKIN CREAM STAY SHADOW STICK (COLOR: SHELL) — $22
BE A 10 BELONG TO ME LIP GLOSS (COLOR: CORAL) — $22
BLINC ULTRAVOLUME TUBING MASCARA (.35 oz) — $26
JUICE BEAUTY STEM CELLULAR ANTI-WRINKLE RETINOL OVERNIGHT SERUM (1 oz) — $72
SUNTEGRITY NATURAL MINERAL TINTED SUNSCREEN SPORT SPF 30 (3 oz) — $24

All the products are full size with the exception of the It’s a 10 products.

Total RV came to $593.

The other Lee

This is the 5th VIP box I have gotten and they never include a booklet or insert. They idea is that you watch the live event for info. The event is pretty cheesy though. They never give values.
You left one item off of your list – The Moxie lash starter kit. That would bring the value over $600.
I know I am in the minority in that I liked the box. It wasn’t exciting but I intend to use most of the items. I won’t use the Manna Kadar item or the dermaplane. Otherwise, I’m good 🙂

Angel

You are absolutely right about the Moxie lash. I hadn’t realize that I’d set it to the side. I calculated $121 on the Moxie Lash kit, bringing the RV to $714. I definitely do feel that I got my money’s worth. I’ll use about half of what’s in the box, and the rest can go up for swap. I ordered the Fall box last night during the discount period, and now I’m glad I did.

zo

The September 2021 VIP box is available now on the New Beauty website for $109 for the next 2 hours. Goes up to $159 after.

Stormi

I just received the June VIP box (on West Coast, almost 1-1/2 hours into Zoom, which is pretty unfortunate). I am underwhelmed, to say the least, and have been a huge New Beauty advocate for the several years I’ve received the Tube, the Special Edition and more recently the VIP boxes.

I know that there are always going to be hits and misses, and that everyone has different opinions/product wants & needs, but this just didn’t seem special to me and I won’t be ponying-up the premium price for future VIP boxes. I’ve received a couple of these products in other boxes, yet another lip exfoliant, cosmetic colors that don’t work for me personally and so on. Also things I just won’t use – fake eyelashes, Its a 10 hair products, cosmetics in colors that don’t work for me. Again, I’m sure there are people that will love all of these things! I’m just not one of them.

I also do not like the fact that there is no card/brochure/etc. that lists the items that are IN the box. (I’ve noticed this with other VIP boxes and I don’t think the last couple Test Tubes have had it either, whereas there used to be a little booklet.) I am probably WAY too jaded, but it seems like a great way to avoid issues if something is missing (and this has happened a couple times with New Beauty in the past).

Cheryl

That was so well said. I could not agree more. The show tonight gave a lot of time to the breast augmentation NATRELLE and the EMSCULPT procedure. These items were not discounted in the box and it felt like an infomercial for these two procedures. I watch to get tips on how to use the products in the box, not be sold medical procedures

The other Lee

I received my box. I did open it but I won’t post spoilers out of respect for those who want to wait.
There are spoilers on other websites for those who want to see.
I am pretty happy with it. It isn’t the best box they have had but I will use most things in it. There are a couple of things I would never buy and am excited to try so I am happy about that.
I will definitely watch tonight so I can get some pointers & explanation.
Peoples reviews have been pretty negative so far but you can’t expect boxes to please everyone.
I calculated a value of about $640.

Rebeccah

Does anyone know what sites have spoilers posted? I swear google is broken for me haha. I would usually wait but I get off work long after the event ends and I really wanna know whats in the box! Lol

The other Lee

They are on Reddit

zo

My box just arrived. I opened it and took out the card with the brands listed but didn’t look at the items themselves. There is a booklet on breast augmentation. I wonder if that’s just a discount in the box and if that value is factored into the total value.

Someone mentioned the $139 price tag as never being on sale. I did not get the last box but I was still able to get the limited time $99 price tag after the last event.

zo

JoJoB,
Yes, it was FedEx.

The other Lee

I got mine for $99 too. Usually only available for a couple of hours after the event. They did discount one of the boxes when it hadn’t sold out. Can’t remember which one.

JoJoB

zo did yours come via FedEX? I have not received a text or an email and the FEDEX man just left my building so I’m not optimistic…

Cheryl

I have not received a shipping notice for the June VIP box. I spoke with Brenda at customer service who confirmed that they were supposed to start shipping June 18 & that my box had not shipped. She was extremely rude, condescending and unhelpful. She actually said it could take 3 to 6 weeks to ship??? I hung up and called back and was told to keep checking my email for confirmation and\or to call back on Thursday morning if I had not received it. He was very polite but it really didn’t resolve the issue. Has anybody else had an issue this month?

JoJoB

I still have not received an email or a box and the even is today! I reached out on Monday and NOTHING! Has anyone actually received their box?

zo

I got a text saying mine is going to be delivered today. First time for that (a text). No email though.

Rebeccah

I haven’t received one either and that’s somewhat concerning considering the event is in 2 days…I’m curious if anyone has gotten their tracking or the box yet?

The Other Lee

Just got shipping notification for Thursday delivery

The Other Lee

Nope. Nothing here. In the past, they would send the boxes out the day before via Fedex overnight. Not sure what is going on now. Seems like most people are still waiting.

Victoria

Is there a post discussing the VIP box for June that should be releasing soon? I looked but don’t see anything…

The Other Lee

The box is supposed to start shipping on the 18th. The live event is on the 24th. They do not release spoilers. Like jaq said, it is sold out. MSA doesn’t usually post any reviews for it.

The Other Lee

I haven’t gotten shipping notification either. I’m not too worried as they usually send it overnight.

Cheryl

Has anyone received a shipping notification?

Victoria

I didn’t know I won a giveaway but that must be what it’s from. Thanks for helping me solve that mystery!

The Other Lee

I think there was an MZ Wallace giveaway in the last live event. Is it possible you won the giveaway and are just getting it now?

Victoria

I got the notification on the Free Gift Friday but didn’t sign up for it. The item I received was a MZ Wallace cosmetic bag, definitely nothing I’ve seen NB send out a link for or that I’ve ordered. That’s why I was thinking maybe it was an early arrival from the June VIP, just shipped separately for some reason. I guess I’ll know soon enough when the boxes get shipped and people start sharing what they’ve received. If it’s not from the VIP box, I’ve got no clue. Either way, I’ll take it, ha!

The other Lee

Now I’m curious. What did you receive? They had a Free Gift Friday item that should be arriving about now. It was Babe Lash Essential serum.

Victoria

I was curious because I received a box from New Beauty over the weekend but it only had one thing in it. If it’s not part of the VIP box (which I did order) I’m not sure why I got it. So strange but no big deal.

jaq

I had been checking to see if the price was ever discounted from $139 but it wasn’t, and it’s now sold out, as of about a week ago.

JoJoB

This comment is purely on the off chance that one of New Beauty’s employees is on here (as they sometimes are). I need some help please.

I am not sure what has happened to this company but I am literally DUMBFOUNDED by the customer service they are using now. I still don’t have my box (the event is tonight), I have no tracking number or email (because they have not shipped my box) and I have been on the phone since Monday (I’ve sent 6 emails as well, also starting on Monday and have had ZERO response to ANY OF THEM) trying to get a status or a refund. I just got off the phone again (30 minutes this time) and not only will they not help me, there is no other way to get in touch with any one. They claim they can’t pass me on to anyone else. Y’all it is insane. I have my confirmation email from the company that I paid for the box. I have an order number for reference.

I’ve had the CS people literally pick up the phone and hang up on me or talk to me like I am an idiot. Please know I am aware this sounds crazy and made up and if I was reading someone else’s comments on here and they were making these claims I would probably think they were exaggerating. It’s that wild. And before anyone goes there, no I am not being a Karen, I am being extremely kind and patient with the CS people and not taking my frustration out on them at all which makes it all the more unbelievable that TEST TUBE and NEW BEAUTY are okay with this customer service. I have been a Test Tube subscriber for a really long time and this is my 4th VIP Box purchase and I have never had any issues.

I feel like I have stepped into some kind of Twilight Zone/Candid Camera situation with their new customer service. Like I cannot believe it is real it is so incredibly awful. I almost feel like maybe some scam company has hijacked their CS phone number and is pretending to represent the company or something. There is NO WAY a real company would tolerate this. Anyway , I apologize for the rant but I’m at my wits end here and don’t know what else to do. I don’t have Facebook or Instagram so those are not an option for me.

So, if you are on here NEW BEAUTY/Test Tube REP, I’d love some help! And please, whatever you do, don’t give me the same CS number and email you usually post in the comments and say you’d love to help and for me to please reach out because I’ve been doing that for the last 3 days. Thanks!

Laura P.

@JoJoB – I’m so sorry you’re having these CS issues! It’s inexcusable to pay that much for a product and then not receive it nor any info. about when you will. In the past, NBTT has been great to deal with, but I have also recently noticed a decline. A “Free Friday” product arrived damaged/leaking (The SR Fairy Godmother lotion) and I get that it’s “free” technically, but it was still $9.98 shipping, so not really free. Three weeks and no response. Hopefully they will resolve your questions soon.

Laura P.

I thought it was strange to recive a Sunday Riley Good Genes glycolic acid in this awards box as it is not listed in their brochure (although I believe it was named in 2020 awards?) Regardless, I gifted mine to someone else because I already have a peeling product I use that I’m happy with. She’s now telling me it has an expiration date of 2012 on the bottom??!! I feel bad for not realizing that before I sent it although in my experience they usually just print batch codes, not actual expiration dates unless it’s something that has SPF. She couldn’t manage to take a photo to show me the numbers, but is sending it back to me so I can return if needed. Just wondering if anyone else thinks they may have an expired product?

Taren

Sunday Riley wasn’t around in 2012 neither was their glycolic acid for sure. So the code means something else if that helps. 😊

Wendy

If it works like the other batch codes I’ve seen, it likely actually said 20l2 (L, not 1), and indicated that it was manufactured in Dec 2020

Laura P.

Thanks Wendy, that helps and totally makes sense. I’m not even sure that SR was making the Good Genes glycolic acid in 2012. They need to be more clear about batch codes versus expiration dates. I didn’t want to think NewBeauty was sending out expirated product!

Sarah Lafreniere

For $111 for 29 items that is AMAZING!!! I might not use all the items, but they are perfect to give to family and friends or sell and make some money back 🙂

Karolyn

I got mine yesterday, am I the only one disappointed in it?

The other Lee

Mine hasn’t arrived yet but I saw spoilers. I wouldn’t say I’m disappointed but I would have appreciated more variety. That being said, it is worth the $111.

Iggy'sRock

I got my box today!!! I think it was worth it. Did anyone else get theirs?

shelly conway

Mine was supposed to arrive today but fed ex changed the shipping date from today to pending….hope it makes it here. Anyway …How about a few spoilers from those that got theirs .

The other Lee

My box is on a wagon train on Pennsylvania 😛 It’s been to three different towns in PA since Friday.

Reeb

My tracking hasn’t updated since Thursday when it was “in transit” from Oklahoma City to Dallas. It can’t possibly take 5 days to travel that distance unless maybe it’s by wagon train? No one at FedEx has any idea where it actually is right now.

shakingmyhead

The spoilers are also on another sub review site.

The other Lee

The same thing happened to me. I found full spoilers on line. It’s on Reddit.

Laurie

Mine arrived today and it had tons of great products in it. My daughter-in-law and I had a great time divvying it up. Well worth the price tag!

Kristin

Can you post what was in the box?

The other Lee

There are full spoilers online.

The other Lee

Looks like it is sold out.

The other Lee

I got the shipping email this morning. Can’t wait 🙂

Laurie

Me too, but mine was already on the way. I have the FedEx app installed. It should arrive tomorrow. Can’t wait!

Helen

Got mine and overall I’m pretty pleased with it!

Laura P.

Me too! Expected delivery is tomorrow via FedEx.

Laura P.

Received today – just over 11 lbs.! I opened the outer box expecting the usual black box with the band that says ‘don’t open until…’ but found an $85 kit that couldn’t fit in the main box. 😄

The other Lee

Mine isn’t scheduled for delivery until Saturday 🙁

The other Lee

They released the winners. I can’t wait to see what is in the box. I kind of want the Fenty moisturizer with sunscreen.
Anyone else have a wish list?

Laura P.

I glanced at the NewBeauty Awards issue; haven’t had time to thoroughly peruse, but I definitely plan on comparing that list to the items in the April VIP box – can’t wait! The Feb. box was completely amazing! 😉 Meanwhile, is anyone else itching to use a makeup wipe on that model’s overly-highlighted face in the promo pic?!

The other Lee

LOL. That is so funny. Every time I look at that picture, I think she just looks sweaty and needs a rinse.

Meredith

They sell out for sure. If you are interested I would grab it now. If/when New Beauty lowers the price they are gone before you can get to the site and enter your info to purchase.

I’ve subbed to this box since it was only offered on HSN. This is the first VIP/award winner box I’ve gotten because I’ve always brushed it off thinking I’d purchase it at a later date. Nope….sold out.

Rugby

Now I want this, but $159..I will have to wait and see if they offer a discount the night of.

Mary

Vivian – I watched on zoom and went to their FB page separately. We asked questions or comments there and quickly received responses from NB. This LIVE event was more fun being on FB at the same time.

Wendy

Still trying to decide whether to buy it… the products from previous boxes look great, but without spoilers I just don’t know whether I’ll be allergic to the products which makes it risky. Maybe it’s just FOMO that makes me want to buy it.

Gloria

I bought / received the February box. I think it had great value in terms of the retail price of the items vs. what I paid. (I got it for $99 though) I just didn’t care about the products so much. I think there was an enough mix
of items but the supplements turned me off. At least I found a friend that uses them so they won’t go to waste.

I rather pay a 3 month $137 deal of other sub vs this box. However, I do think that getting this box is better to getting 3 boxes of “deluxe samples” every month. Werent samples supposed to be free anyways?

Tiffany

Hi everyone. I don’t have anything to contribute about this box. I expected to see Luna posting about it and see she hasn’t. Also, I notice now I haven’t read any posts from her lately. Anyone out there in touch with her and know that she’s ok?

Luna

I’m here! 😀 Kristin’s right… work has been kicking my booty since mid-January, lol. It should (finally!) die down for me in a few weeks. I still check MSA regularly, usually right before bed, but am usually too tired too comment on anything, lol. Plus, I’ve been so behind on checking my personal emails, so I haven’t been running into new deals/boxes like I used to 🙁 … however, a couple I did see tonight is that Lookfantastic will be coming out with a new LE box on 3/1; the sign up list is on their website (toggle over Beauty Box then select Limited Edition). Also Liberty has a new beauty kit called Five Minutes’ Peace Beauty Kit. (cute name 🙂 )

Tiffany

Glad to hear from you

Kristin

I believe work is keeping her busy.

Anna

I hope this doesn’t mean they’re doing away with the regular NewBeauty rewards boxes.

Beth

Gurl… $159? And no spoilers. Not in this economy. 😬I miss the New Beauty Beauty Report boxes they would send out seasonally a few years back. Please bring the beauty report boxes back! 😢Those were great and affordable.

Ashp

Go back to $111 and I’ll buy it
