UPDATE: The Glossybox USA August 2012 is almost $100 USD in value, including a full sized Illamasqua nail varnish and a full sized Ellis Faas lipstick. The Canadian box is only $6 less than the USA box (USA is $21 USD per month)... but, the value difference between the two is ridiculous.
With all that being said, the cat still wants to be killed by curiosity. It's $15 CAD per month but I paid $13.50 CAD for mine on August 8th (google for first box coupon code - I used glossy10). I just wanted one box, so I cancelled my subscription as soon as this August one shipped; before they charged for September.
I just received my August 2012 Canadian Glossybox yesterday morning. Yes, you read right... it's September - Why the fuck am I receiving it now? Apparently, everyone receives it nearing the end of the month or in the next month. According to their facebook page, their wimpy excuse is there's a lot of ship. You wish you could see my face right now.
|Alike everyone else, I love the packaging.|
|I can see this sitting in my bathroom for a while, waiting for the rare occasion that I need a spritz of hairspray.|
UPDATE: It's perfumed as fuck and leaves major film.
|Formulation is super creamy. Nice neutral pink.|
Too bad the bullet fell out the moment I opened it - I wrote a complaint email to Glossybox right away.
UPDATE: Glossybox responded to my complaint email and said that they were sad if I wished to cancel and if I sent them a picture of the faulty lipstick, they would send me a new one.
- I said in my initial email that I had already cancelled. Even if I didn't, a simple glance at my account would show that I had cancelled.
- They should send a replacement regardless. Even if mine wasn't already faulty, I could easily lie and rip it out prior to picture-taking.
|meh, but I prefer this non-existent colour payoff powder to the disgusting gold eyeliner I've been seeing in other versions of the box.|
|I'm a mask addict, so this is good.|
Let me know if you have a subscription to Glossybox or any other beauty boxes. Did you receive anything different from mine?
