New boxes and bitching

Standard

I got my last Nail Art Society box today. I cancelled on the 5th of this month before they could charge me for next month. You have to cancel by emailing them as there’s no way to do it on their site. Imagine my surprise when I got an email confirming my credit card was billed for next month. I was pissed. I emailed them twice more and left a phone message. I went on their facebook page and bitched. While there, I discovered I wasn’t the only one complaining about being charged after cancellation. Dirty rat bastards. After 4 days of hounding them, I finally got refunded and they claimed to have deleted my information but I’m not feeling relieved. We’ll see what happens next month.

My reasons for cancelling are simply that I have too many subs and I’m not sure I think this one is worth the money. April’s box just barely hits the $9.95 cost.

I got a Kiss Nail Artist Kit which I like and while I already have a couple of these, I don’t have these specific colours so I’m happy for this.
–Stop Beauty Products nail string tape in aqua…I have 9 bazillion nail tapes in a ton of different colours. It’s incredibly cheap on ebay so this isn’t something I need.
–Beauty Art nail glue…I just ran out of nail glue and even though I hardly ever use it, it’s good to have some around.
–A clear box with 12 kinds of plastic nail art bows…I’m not a fan of 3D nail art and totally not a fan of putting plastic junk on my nails. I do, however, like the plastic box they came in because it might be handy to put some of my glitters in so I can see a bunch at once instead of digging out individual pots.

The Kiss kit retails for about $7.99 at CVS. The rest of this stuff might be worth two bucks. Meh.

I also decided to try Beauty Army. It’s $12 a month, you can skip months without cancelling your account and I have a couple of friends who seem to like it. You get to pick 6 products so you know what you’re getting and you have total control over what you get. I like the concept so I figured I give it a go.

New York Streets Dry Shampoo I love dry shampoo. I had just run out so I was very happy to see this in my list of choices. It’s full size and it smells awesome! I like it. It retails for $10+ on Amazon.
Yes To Carrots Body Butter It’s a sample packet.It smells really good.
-Whip Hand Cosmetics loose pigment eyeshadow in Medal Of Honor…this is a seriously teeny little bottle. It’s a high shimmer shadow and I’m too old for shimmery shadows so I gave it to Amber. It’s a nice colour.
MARK Scanda-lash Hook up Mascara in Brownout. I like mascara so I’ll be trying this soon.
AmLactin Moisturizing Body Lotion I already use this lotion and I love it. I like this little 2 oz portable size.
Skinn Cosmetics Color Touch Eye, Cheek and Lip Glow in Teen Tone…I absolutely LOVE this colour. I wouldn’t use it for lips or eyes but it’s a gorgeous, perfect shade for me. It’s a creme not a powder which makes me love it all the more. This is also a full size product.

Here are some close-ups of the colours and a comparison of the eye shadow size to a coke bottle cap.

I definitely think this is worth the $12 cost and I’ll keep an eye on them to see if they have stuff I want every month.
