Memebox Luckybox #5 and June Coupon Code!

By now, you must have heard of Memebox, the Korean skincare/makeup boxes that are taking the beauty world by storm? It’s not your typical subscription box, where you pay a monthly fee and get a monthly box. Memebox releases boxes sporadically, sometimes a few week even, based on different themes, filled to the brim with cult skincare and beauty products straight from Korea that are difficult to find in the States. They also have different tiers of boxes.

  • Memeboxes– The original Memebox comes packed with 4 – 8 full sized products and deluxe samples, carefully curated from Korea to give you the best experience and widest exposure to a range of products.
  • Superboxes – Superbox was inspired by Memebox lovers, looking for full-sized products catered to specific needs. Each Superbox series comes with it’s own theme, designed to target particular concerns.
  • Luckyboxes –  Each Luckybox contains a selection of products from past Memeboxes, occasionally including a few new favorites that Meme simply could not resist including.
  • Nakedboxes – These are boxes where the contains are already revealed. They are mostly items from past Memeboxes. As of right now, only #16, #17, and a special Father’s Day box are available.

I am reviewing Luckybox #5 here and Nakedbox #15 in a different post. Full disclosure, I actually initially ordered the Nakedbox #15, but somehow was sent Luckybox #5 as a mistake. I emailed Memebox and they told me to keep the Luckybox and basically overnighted me the Nakedbox! Woohoo 🙂

I was actually planning on scooping up Luckybox #5 but it had sold out before I bit the bullet so this is such a win for me. You’ll see why.

Allure Summer Beauty Box Mayhem and More Golden Tote May Spoilers!

Ahh, the elusive Allure Beauty Box! Over $350 of products for just $45 (+$10 shipping + tax)! People go apeshit for this thing. Literally. It sells out within minutes every single time it goes on sale.

Image

Oooh, ahh, magical Allure Beauty Box

I haven’t ever tried to get it, mostly out of fear, but this year, I decided to go for it. I mostly wanted to say “SUCK IT INTERWEBS!” For a super informative breakdown of what’s inside, head over to my gal pal from MUT’s blog here.

It was supposed to go on sale today, 12:01PM EST sharp. But of course, the site was down even before the hour struck 12. Bitching and moaning galore over on their poor Facebook page. Rumors run rampant that the box was sold out before the sale had even begun. In reality, they were having technical difficulties. Some super savvy people were able to find a link that took you to the order form and I lucked out and ordered one before that site too, crashed.

After a few hours of radio silence from Allure, they released the following statement: “To all of our Allure Beauty Box fans: Our site went down when the sale was to go live at 12:01 pm today – we’re so sorry for the inconvenience. To make this fair game we’re going to reset the sale for next Tuesday, May 6 at the same time, 12:01PM EST.” So take note people, if you still want to try and get this bad boy, set your clocks once again for 12:01PM EST, May 6th, and head over to www.allaccess.com/summer. Also, if you did happen to get an order in, don’t fear! Allure is honoring all box orders that went through. Phew.

Now onto much happier news! Golden Tote has just announced invites and referrals! You can now get referral credits from GT! Simply create an account if you haven’t already and you’ll find your very own personalized link! Share that link and each time time someone signs up and purchases their first tote, you’ll get $10! This link is my own, so if you haven’t already jumped on the GT bandwagon, please feel free to use my code 🙂

Speaking of, here’s a few more spoilers for May, which is seriously shaping up to be a super cute month. Even though I managed to snag an Allure Beauty Box, I think I may have to spring for the $149 tote. Which mean I will absolutely be on NO BUY until like June if I ever want to eat again.

Image

I need this. Like now. I believe this will be in the $149 tote. Obviously.

May Golden Tote Spoilers!

Okay before the onslaught of reviews, how about some May Golden Tote spoilers?!

Golden Tote is a fun surprise grab bag clothing deal where you choose from either a $49 or $149 tote. In the $49 tote, you pick one item and get 2-3 other picks and if you go for the $149 tote, you’ll receive 5-6 additional items, all total surprises! Their styling is very boho-chic, Anthropologie, California girl. If you hate patterns, you may not like them. Sales begin on the first Monday of the month and bags start shipping out I believe the second / third week of the month.

I ended up not getting anything from April, mostly because I was feeling too poor and the dress I desperately coveted was in the $149 and nothing else jumped out as a MUST HAVE. But judging on the sneak-peeks so far, I am going to have a hard time saying no.

Image

ImageImage

I kinda love them all. So. Much. Color! I definitely want to pick up a dress. Or two. I have a feeling I’ll be going for the $149 tote. I also love that you can add comments to your styling profile for Sarah and Rosemary. If you see an item from the boutique that you like or from previous totes, let them know! You may not get it, but they’ll get a better sense of your style and know what to include in your package.

I suggest signing up for their newsletter on their site so you can a) never miss a sale and b) get sneak peeks!

The middle top is what the first 1,000 orders will receive. Remember, you can request to NOT get this if it isn’t your style.

This month also features California designer Woo and is a nice breezy mix of dresses, tops, and a fun pair of pants! I might go for the $49 tote again, dependent on which dress is in which. We’ll just see where the cards drop!

March’s Golden Tote Reveal ($49 Option)

Yay!! I got my Golden Tote on Monday! If you remember, I got the $49 option, picking the Chic V-Neck Dress. Obligatory recap of what GT is: their sales go live the first Monday of each month. You chose between $49 or $149 tote options. If you pick the $49 option, you select 1 item from their boutique and receive 2-3 surprise items (up to $200 value) and if you get the $149 bag, you’ll get 5-7 (up to $600)! Their style/options remind me a lot of Anthropologie but for a fraction of the price (in fact, I believe a few of their items have been sold there before) and they have their own in-house brand that’s great. It’s a fun way to get beautiful clothes and they have fabulous customer service. Anyway, enough rambling, onto the goodies!

1) Up first, my pick for the month, the chic v-neck dress by renee c:

Image

Very light and gorgeous in person. I loved the print to death. It’s perfect for spring/summer and will be great with a pair of cowboy boots and if it ever is chilly here in Phoenix, a denim shirt. I only wish the v-neck was a little lower and that the elastic waist sat a bit differently. I think after I lose a few more lbs, I’ll love the dress even more. If not, I’ll trade it away because GT has a very active trade group on Facebook!

2) This amazing renee c. dress

Image

When I first pulled it out of the box, I wasn’t sold. I didn’t think I would like it on my body, thought the print would be too loud, the back too open, etc. But once I put it on, hot damn! It looks smokin! It’s a smidge tight on the bottom, but J.Lo booty + Pilates will do that to a gal! I am soo happy with this dress and I think I found a new neckline to love!

Image

Here’s a closer look at the back. There are two black slits with one center panel. The top is buttoned with a faux diamond. I love it. I usually don’t do open backs because of bra situations, but I will make this one work, because, well, it’s fab. Great job Golden Tote on this pick!

3) Last, but not least, this Flawless bralette that’s been popping up in most of the totes.

Image

Now, when I first saw this around the boards, I thought frak, there is NO way these bb’s are going to be contained in that thing. I assumed I would immediately be putting it up for trade if I received it. I thought wrong. I tried it on for shits and giggles and fell in lurrrrve. It’s so pretty and feminine and surprisingly, the gals are contained! The pink is a great color too, not TOO obnoxiously neon, and the lace wasn’t itchy at all.

Overall, I am soo happy with my tote! $49+ shipping and I got 3 lovely pieces 🙂 I personally recommend that you sign up for Golden Tote’s newsletter today so you never miss a sale again, I promise you won’t be disappointed / you will want to spend all your money always.

Glossybox Feb ’14, March Sneak Peak #1, Coupon!

Well, as fate would have it, the first spoiler for March’s Glossybox came when February finally came to me. For some reason, my box decided to hang in Indiana for a while. The theme for February was ~love~, which would have made sense if we actually received our boxes anywhere CLOSE to Valentines Day. Annnyway, onto the box!

1) Lauren B. Beauty Nail Couture in City of Angel Full Size – $18
This was our first spoiler for Feb. Lauren B. is actually the niece of Philip B. whose hair products show up regularly in sub-boxes so hopefully the quality stands up to her name. She is making her debut in Glossybox this month with this light blush pink polish that actually matches the box quite perfectly. Now, Lauren claims that this polish will last 14 days without chipping. That makes me want to laugh a bit, but I guess we’ll have to see!
IMG_2968 IMG_2969
The formula doesn’t seem too goopy or too runny and the brush seems alright tho I personally prefer a thicker brush so you don’t end up with brush strokes (especially with sheer colors).

2) Sumita Beauty Kala Color Intense Pencil in Black Full Size – $15
Ah, black eyeliner. So original! I have never received nor purchased black eyeliner in my life. *eyeroll*. I also cared soo little, I didn’t even bother to retake this blurry picture.
IMG_2971
Apparently some ladies have gotten this in their Birchboxes and said that it had good staying power so we have that going for us. I have yet to decide if I am even going to bother opening and swatching to see or if I’ll put it straight into the trade pile.

3) anatomicals Puffy The Eye Bag Slayer Full Size (3 patches) – $11
I think anatomicals is a great cheeky brand. The copy on the back of the box actually made me laugh out loud. I am stoked to try these eye patches out, especially after a rough night out.
IMG_2967
They are supposed to revitalize the skin around your eyes and make your peepers look rejuvenated, vibrant, and smooth AKA erase the tequila shots you did the night before.

4) Figs & Rouge Cherry Blossom Tinted Lip Balm Tube Full Size – $9
Other ladies were raving about this item on the forums, so I was excited to get it in my box, but my tube feels like almost 1/2 of the product is already missing! I will be sending Glossybox an email about it, but I’m not too sure what they’ll do about it.
IMG_2973
Anyway, this UK brand is supposed to provide a hint of color and is made with 100% natural ingredients. It does smell quite nice, like cherries 🙂

5) Pureology Serious Colour Care Colour Fanatic 1fl Oz – ~$3.60
The only non-full size product in the box and one of the ones I wasn’t really looking forward to. I don’t color my hair anymore, so I don’t really have a use for a treatment spray.
IMG_2972
Apparently it provides 21 essential benefits to prime, perfect, and protect color-treated hair. What those reasons are, who knows. This will probably end up on the trade list unless I decide to get crazy and dye my hair anytime soon.

Overall, this box has a value of over $55 for only $21! Not too shabby.

Now onto the first spoiler for March:
Screen Shot 2014-03-04 at 3.26.35 PM
Some fancy pants face mask! This Sisley Black Rose Cream Mask retails for $158 full size. Like holy crap, it better be made out of gold / the tears of virgins for me to ever pay full boat for that. I am assuming our sample size will be uber small.

Also, if you haven’t signed up for Glossybox yet, use the code GBFRESH to get a deluxe size deluxe-sized Fresh Lotus Youth Preserve Face Cream! Also remember to use Ebates, you’ll save $2.75! What did you think of this month’s Glossy? Have you even gotten yours yet?! xo

Hurry! March’s Golden Tote is up!!

Run, don’t walk, to Golden Tote! The March sale has only just begun and sizes are already selling out. This month around is definitely an improvement, website loading MUCH faster, and check out was a breeze. If you don’t know, Golden Tote offers two options, a $149 tote where you choose 2 items and can receive up to 7 pieces OR a $49 tote where you pick 1 and can get 2-3. I ended up going with the $49 tote and snagged this cute dress:

Image
I can’t wait to get it! It’ll be perfect for spring with some cowboy boots!

However, there’s tons of cute options! Here’s a few that are only in the $149 tote.

ImageImageImage

Plus, the first 1,000 orders (not sure if that’s been hit yet) receive this shirt:
Image

I asked Sarah and Rosemary to not include with mine (I think my big boobs would make me look like a tent in that dress) and added a few requests (which they try super hard to honor). The initial sale lasts for about a week and then they start shipping out, so don’t expect your tote until closer to the end of the month (even if you pick expedited shipping!). I can’t wait to get my hands on the dress & see what the girls pick out for me.

Did you get anything this month?? Let me know! Don’t forget to sign up for the Golden Tote newsletter so you can be the first to know about sales. xo
