My First Vellvette Box - November


In the last week of October when all the bloggers were showing their Clinique Palettes, Victoria Secrets Lotions, Lush products and other amazing things that they received from Vellvette box, I was getting envious. I waited for registration to started again and jumped to select the 3 month subscription. I waited for the whole month and on 27th Nov, I got products from Sheiseido, Elizabeth Arden and Clinique - WOW!!

They also sent the a personal letter and a card for each product about price, details and how to use. This time they also have send coupon codes which can be used to buy the full sizes from them even if it was not in your box.

Clinique Different Lipstick - Pink Spice

Cool nah? Clinique Lipstick???? Full Size!! Well, let me tell you - its not. Why?

Because its broken. I was sure that it would be broken when I saw it because Jyotsna from Beauty And Makeup Studio has already mentioned on 23rd that the one she got was broken and I was surely that they might have received a lot to be given in the box and all of which might be broken.  And true to my thoughts, it was broken. Plus, look at the shade. I am not complaining. Makeup Alley has given it a 4.1/5 rating with 78% saying they will buy it again. But, will anyone of my age be interested in this?

Puzzled me - I had mentioned in their notes that I not need any bath products or any  lip products. In their questionnaire  I had mentioned that I only like the ones latest in trends and this is in market from 2006 I guess then how it came in my box?

Fishy Feeling - In the cards its mentioned Clinique Different Lipstick but I received Clinique Long Last Lipstick.

I have called them on 27th Nov. They told me and mailed me that I should send them pictures. I replies with pics on 27th but I have not yet received any reply from them. I am really disappointed here. I wish they replace it with something better but they are not.


BTW Sheiseido The Skincare Extra Gentle Cleansing foam is going to be part of next giveaway along with the 5 nail polish that I showed here.

  1. I don't know why they make us fill the questionnaire when it seems that they just randomly fill the boxes!!! I was terribly disappointed with mine too. We wait in anticipation for the boxes and then the contents disappoint us :(....btw u look quite young...why are they sending u anti-ageing serum capsules?? Coz that's what the Elizabeth Arden capsules are.

    1. no idea dear..no idea

      Why force someone to fill that questionnaire when you are least bothered? They have just started and they might be having only few products to giveaway. Other than sending random products, I do not see any other option for them.

      And yes the anti aging serum capsules are completely not for me. I will force my mother to use them. Also 5 capsules are too less to actually judge the effect. They could have at least bothered about my age!!

    2. Agree, 5 is too less for a paid sample. That's what they give for free at EA counters!!! Emailed Vellvette about this but they refused to believe!

  2. seriously agree.. they did not even bother to check the questionnaire we filled out before sending out the boxes... and i look so ill wearing that lipstick! when i asked them to change the shade.. they were like "ur Editor really thought that the shade would suit you! You should definitely try it out and ask your girlfriends how it looks, maybe you'll discover something new!" i was like WTH!! i am telling u the shade did not suit me.. and u give me that free advice which is pathetic as the lipstick...!

    i was so happy with my first box.. but nov month's was a bigggg disappointment :( wish they reply u soon...

  4. Aww that's a bummer about the lipstick! :/ I've been tempted to try out the box but I've been disappointed by others before - and I only feel a bit half-hearted about the products I've seen in reviews out there. Would rather save my money and buy something I REALLY wantt!

    1. True dear. I am very sad with them. On top of it, they are not even replying to my mail.

  5. Even my November box was such a disappointment. They had started off so well and now their quality seems to be dwindling.

    I agree with you guys on why make us fill a questionnaire when they don't check it. Also, I don't understand how they can easily select lipstick and lip gloss shades for us as they are the most trickiest of the lot in makeup. and I don't remember seeing any questions regarding what colour we usually prefer wearing in lip shades in the questionnaire.

    Best,
    Priyanka (The Purplenista)
