One month wonder (nightmare) - update on Blue Velveteen

First of all I want to apologize to all my readers about my at the time positive review about a new subscription box called Blue Velveteen that came out in September. I feel bad that maybe some people signed up to this box because of the review I wrote and are now fighting to get their money back.
For some of you who don't know what I am talking about here a quick description. Blue Velveteen was a beauty subscription box that did great marketing before it's launch. Many subscription box lovers, me included, got lured in by the fantastic sounding promises of a new beauty subscription box. For just $10 a month they promised deluxe and full size products, similar to Ipsy just without the bag. It sounded good to me, since I cancelled Ipsy because I was not happy anymore with my bags. BV (Blue Velveteen) posted heavily on social media and advertised high end brands and beauty tips. All looked very professional and promising. I signed up with an early access code and our boxes were promised to come before the launch. Since I hate to wait I thought this was a fantastic idea. The box came before the release date as promised and I liked it. I thought it was a good start for BV. You can find my review here. I found out later, that everyone seemed to have gotten different products, some more (like most bloggers) some less (like me). I found that a bit strange but I let it go. Then everyone else started to receive their boxes and most received less products than the bloggers. So naturally and within their right, people started to question the business practices of BV and got mad. Then people got charged but never received their boxes. Big red flag.
When I first received the box I liked it and thought it was good, but I cancelled because I was just not really feeling it after thinking about it for a while and we were moving, having three places and just a lot of costs coming up that I wanted to save some money and cancel unnecessary things (I got rid of all my subs except one, didn't order any Memeboxes etc. It was hard).
Now hearing what is going on with BV I am so glad I cancelled (without any problems, like others had). As of right now BV is no more. They never came out with a second box or third, even though they charged people. Things got even worse when there was absolutely no communication on their part. They never answered their costumers and even pulled all their accounts from social media. WTF!!!!! The owner of BV claimed to be harassed and cyber bullied, but as far now costumers were just asking where their boxes are or how to get their money back. I heard people got charged for November again. So I don't really know what to say besides WTF and shady shady shady.
I just hope things will get sorted out and people will get reimbursed and the owner of BV will made held responsible for her actions.
I guess no more new subs for me.

Crave Brow and Lash Kit review and coupon code

I know, I have been absent for a while and I want to apologize to my readers. We are in the process of moving out of state and we are currently driving back and forth between Arizona and California, trying to find a new house, and everything else that goes along with a move. Needless to say it is a stressful time and I'm slacking a bit with my blog. Sorry guys.

Making another list

I thought after mentioning companies with great customer service it is time to start a list with worst customer service experiences. First I wasn't sure to go this route, but I'm trying to get a hold of  a company I ordered some make up from for almost 10 days and I still haven't gotten a response. I sound like this crazy lady, but I'm seriously annoyed now. I called, no one answers, so I left a message, sent emails, posted on their Facebook page, sent direct messages but still haven't heard back.

New long awaited Memeboxes will be released

Set your alarm, tomorrow at 1 pm PST Memebox will release 2 new long anticipated boxes. A Holika Holika box and a Tony Moly box. Squeel. They will be Superbox es with just full sized items. I'm so excited.

Launch of the Blue Velveteen box

Blue Velveteen is a brand new beauty subscription box that just launched this month. I got lucky and received one of their pre-release boxes, before they ship out the September box in the middle of the month.
Blue Velveteen cost $10 per month and you will receive handselected beauty products and trendy glamour items shipped to your door. Although their target group is teenagers (or anyone else who likes beauty products?) I thought I will give them a try after the disaster with another subscription service. So I was excited when I found the package from Blue Velveteen in my mailbox today.
You can check them out here or on their Facebook page or Twitter page.
But now to the long awaited box.
