Contents of the Walmart Fall 2014 Beauty Box (Two Versions)

UPDATE: There are apparently TWO different versions of the Walmart Fall 2014 Beauty Box. Below you will find both versions 1 and 2, received by multiple readers.

If you ordered the Fall 2014 installment of the Walmart Beauty Box when I first posted about it at the beginning of the month, then you may have already received your box. If not, there are at least TWO different versions now being sent to subscribers (I have no idea if there are more than two versions).

First let's take a look at version #1, thanks to readers Heather (@MoonWatcher11 on Twitter) and Carolyn. Both of them received this version this week:

(price: box is free; $5 for shipping when you subscribe
via the Walmart Beauty Box site)

Take a look inside, after the jump...

First up, version #1 received by readers Heather and Carolyn:

The contents of version #1:

  • 1 CoverGirl Continuous Color Lipstick in 420 Iced Mauve (full-size; $4.94 at Walmart.) (Note: shade may vary.)

  • 1 Secret Clinical Strength Invisible Solid Antiperspirant/Deodorant in Completely Clean (full-size, 2.6 oz, $11.97 at Walmart)

  • 1 Juicy Couture Couture Couture fragrance (sample vial)

  • 1 Clear Damage & Color Repair shampoo and conditioner (sample packet duo)

  • 1 Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream Moisturizer (0.5 oz trial size)

  • 1 L'Oreal Revitalift Triple Power Deep-Acting Moisturizer (0.5 oz trial size)


Next up, version #2, received by readers LeAnna and Liz:

Walmart Fall 2014 Beauty Box Version #2

Reader LeAnna shared this pic above of her Walmart Beauty Box, and you can see that it's VERY different from version #1 (the only common item is the Secret deodorant).

Walmart Fall 2014 Beauty Box Version #2

Reader Liz also received version #2 and shared the pic above. She also shared an itemized list of the contents.

The contents of version #2:


  • 1 Secret Clinical Strength Invisible Solid Antiperspirant/Deodorant in Completely Clean (full-size, 2.6 oz, $11.97 at Walmart)

  • 1 CoverGirl Glowing Nights Glosstini in 690 LaserLight (full-size but please note that the polishes in the Glosstini line are all 0.11 oz, $2.97 at Walmart)

  • 1 Nicki Minaj Pink Friday fragrance (sample vial)

  • 1 Neutrogena Long Wear Foundation (tester card with 8 shades + $2 off coupon)

  • 1 L'Oreal Pore Vanisher (sample packet)

  • Dove Oxygen Moisture Shampoo & Conditioner (trial size tubes)

  • Dove Pure Care Dry Oil (trial size tube)

To me, version #2 is clearly the better box, but that will of course depend on your preferences when it comes to products and brands. I love that you get three full-size products in version #2, plus I just like the variety of products in version #2 (more makeup!).

NOTE: I did not personally sign up for this box, so I don't know if you are prompted to answer questions about the types of products you like prior to subscribing. If you did have to fill out a questionnaire, I would love to hear from you. Perhaps this is why there are two versions floating around, and one is more skincare-oriented while the other is more cosmetic-oriented? Also, I have no idea as of the time of this post if there are more than two versions of this box. If you receive something different from either of these featured above, please do let us know!

As of the time of this post, you can still sign up for this box HERE. Again, you'll get one box per season, and the boxes are FREE, but you pay $5 for shipping when each box ships (for a total of $20 for four boxes). The box featured in this post is the first of four (Fall 2014).

Did you order this box when I first posted about it? Have you received yours yet? Thoughts?

Thanks so much, Carolyn, Heather, Liz and LeAnna, for the great pics and info. I really appreciate it!

  5. Wow, this is better than I expected, I figured anything like the creams would be packets! Pretty great value, I'm glad I ordered! :)

  6. So glad I passed on this. However, I received the deodorant in a P&G Thank you box from Influenster, and it's great!

    1. Recieved mine yesterday! I got the second box.The deodorant is not 2.6oz, but makes no difference to me. Glad I signed up. :-) All surprise box services start out a little wanting, but usually they get better & better. I'd say this is a great start! The perfume is a nice interesting scent, the hair oil smells good (going to use it), tried out the glossy balm and it is moisturizing (I have very dry lips), the deodorant smells wonderful (can't wait to try it). Wish my polish was a different color (I got Laser Lights), but as a collector I still want to try it and art it up. Lol! So, out of the nine items I recieved, I like 6 of them(Win!) and the 3 they could have kept are the foundation samples that do not cover every skin range (plus, I don't wear liquid foundation anyway) and the shampoo and conditioner for thin, limp hair (really?). Passing those 3 on to others. Overall I'm pleased and excited to see what's to come in future boxes. Thx for the tip G!

  10. I haven't received my box yet, but now I am really looking forward to it! I go through clinical strength deodorant like it's my job, so I'm really excited to see this sent full-sized. Also, LOVE that the Regenerist is included - .5oz of this stuff goes a LONG way.

    ReplyDelete
  11. I am glad I passed on this. The only thing I could have used was the lipstick. I liked the Target version because even if all the samples were a no go for me, the bags were adorable.

  12. Super excited to get mine! any word on shipping dates?

    ReplyDelete
  13. I got my box today. All the same items, but the little perfume was loose and broken inside the box. Still got more than my money's worth.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Honestly, I'm a little bored by this box. It's not quite what I expected because the promo photo was so awesome; however, it's not a major waste because I love Secret deodorant.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Did the box contain any coupons for these or other products?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Mine has a 2.00$ coupon for the foundation. That's it.

  16. Got mine today. Love the Secret deodorant and the Olay Regenerate.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Ireceived mine today :) but my box has different products :D I got the full size Secret Clinical deodorant, I got sample of Pink Friday by Nicki Minaj, a sample of L'oreal Youth Code Pore Vanisher, I got a mini CoverGirl nail polish, a sample of Dove Pure Care Dry Oil, a sample of Dove Oxygen Moisture Shampoo, a sample of Dove Oxygen Moisture Conditioner, some samples of Neutrogena nourishing Long Wear makeup ( 8 tiny samples ) and full size L'oreal Glossy Balm

    ReplyDelete
  18. Did anyone get shipping confirmation emails? They say we're supposed to but I haven't yet nor gotten my box. Kinda bummed if all the stuff in the promo shots aren't there (Im a sucker for dry shampoos) but still a pretty good deal.

    ReplyDelete
  19. No coupons or tracking with my order.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I'm another who ordered the first day and haven't received it. For those who received yours did you get any kind of shipping notice or did it just show up?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Mine just showed up--no notification. FYI-- I live in Minnesota. . . Maybe they are shipping in areas/batches???

      Delete
    2. Thanks! I'm guessing they are doing regions, or maybe one box variety at a time and there are more than just two. I'm not too concerned yet, if it hasn't come by next week I may contact them just to ask since they've already billed me.

      Delete
    3. I live in MN and I haven't received mine. I look at my account and it says processed. I hope it ships soon!

      Delete
    4. I ordered the first day and got mine yesterday. I did not receive a shipping notification. I received the nail polish and glossy balm box.

      Delete
  21. I got the second version of the box today with the polish in the shade afterdark and balm in Lovely Mocha. Definitely not disappointed!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I just signed up a few days ago and there was no questionnaire of any sort. Perhaps the boxes are chosen at random, or even by location. Either way they seem like a good value, though I definitely agree that box #2 seems like the better box.

    ReplyDelete
  23. fingers cross, please send me version one :p

    ReplyDelete
  24. If I had to guess - box 2 is a younger demographic while box 1 (with wrinkle cream) for the over 35 crowd - I believe the boxes for ages were 20 something to 34 and 35-I forget. :-)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Oh, I bet you're right! I'm over 35 so I got the old lady box :-)

      Delete
    2. I hope not. I like box 2 but if that's the case will probably get 1 :(

      Delete
    3. I agree. I'm 37 and I got box #1. The form to order asked for your birth date, and I'm guessing that's how they decided which box you got. I am not pleased with this. I would have much preferred box #2. I wish they would have just given you a choice on the box and not just assumed what I would want based on my age. It's still a good deal for the products I got, but I don't like that Walmart is making ageist assumptions in sending these. That's what I get for trusting Walmart!

      Delete
    4. I'm 34 but got box 2 so I'm not sure it's based on age! I would've been happy with either box but like the lip crayon better than the lipstick so YAY

      Delete
    5. Maybe they will work out the issues with box choice as time goes on. I'm 27 and honestly I'd prefer box one

      Delete
  25. I might be remembering wrong but for some reason I think I gave my age when signing up. Maybe thats the difference?

    1. yes i think it makes a difference. the first box is geared toward older women i believe and the second box looks like its for younger women.

  27. I got the first box, and I really like it. I do like lip crayons, bit other than that, I prefer the box I got. I prefer the Olay and LOreal skin care over Dove hair products, and I don't wear face makeup or nail polish.

    I think the nail polish in the 2nd one is a mini, not a full size, so there were 2 full size products both boxes.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I addressed this in the listing in my blog post above but in case you missed it, ALL Glosstinis are 0.11 oz, which I know is considered a mini polish by regularly standards. However, CoverGirl only make Glosstinis in 0.11 oz bottles, so that's technically full-size, since there is no other size in that line. The regular CoverGirl polishes are not called Glosstinis, they're called Nail Glosses (and come in bigger bottles). Hope that clears it up!

  28. I immediately cancelled mine before when you mentioned that the site wasn't secure, and they never refunded my $5 :/ Oh well, I resubscribed anyway and will call customer service tomorrow to try to get a refund for the first $5. These boxes look like a great value! :)

    ReplyDelete
  29. I got Version #1 & after seeing Version 2, I'm so glad I did. I already own almost all of the items included in version 2. In Version 1 I'd only ever tried the deodorant. So I'm REALLY happy with what I got. If I'd gotten version 2 I would've been seriously bummed.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Just wanted to mention that I DID get a tracking email. I wasn't expecting one since many had mentioned they hadn't gotten one. But I did receive one.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I read on MakeupTalk that subscribers over 30 will receive Box #1 which includes the skincare and anyone under 30 will receive Box #2.

    Not 100% sure on this but it sounds pretty logical to me, so we'll see when more people start getting theirs!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Nope, many over thirty have been getting box 2. I wish they just let people pick since the boxes aren't all going to be the same.

      Delete
  32. Box 2 is so not better than box 1!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Hi G! Actually the Secret deodorant size the all received was 1.60z and is priced at $7.92 on walmart.com. Although there was no questionnaire/survey to determine your interests/likes, they DID ask you for your DOB when you signed up. That's how they determine what goes in your box - by age group. Fabluous value for both boxes. Already stoked to see what's going to be in their Winter box! :)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yep, I got the 1.60oz too. Nice size, smells great.

      Delete
  34. Glancing through the comments, I didn't see where anyone else posted the same so, my glossy balm is a different color then pictured above. I got Lovely Mocha.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I got the second box with a few color variations - the L'Oreal Glossy Balm in Pink Me Up and the CoverGirl Glowing Night Glossitinis in After Dark.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I received box #2 and I am happy with it! I received the CoverGirl Glowing NIghts Glosstini nail polish in the color #AfterDark and the L'Oreal Glossy Balm in Ginger Candy. I've never wanted to pay full price for a Glossy Balm and I always forget to check if it is on sale, so I'm really excited to have gotten to try it out! I was expecting what turned out to be box #1, so I was very pleasantly surprised to get this different box :) And as much as I don't care for Nicki Minaj, the perfume sample smells really good! It's pretty sweet and sugary smelling which I am usually not a fan of but there is something about it that appeals to me!

    1. I received my box yesterday and it had the contents of box two as well. I'd say well worth my five dollars. I love the glossy balms. I got mine in candid coral (very pretty) and nail color was a blue mint color. I actually like the Nicki Minaj sample, smells really good. The dove hair products smell amazing too, and you cant beat a 12 dollar deodorant for less than five. I'd say it was a win.

      Delete
  37. i received box #2 today as well and i'm SO happy with it! my polish is a glossy days glosstini in #GetGlowing (such a happy, sunshiney yellow!) and my glossy balm is in ginger candy, like memoriesx :) usually i'm not a fan of colors like ginger candy, but it's such a nice, smooth formula and i'm psyched to get to try it for so cheap. plus pink friday smells AMAZING, and i got a full size of my HG deodorant. i couldn't be more pleased.

  38. Just finished signing up and the boxes do differ by age. Copied this from the site:

    "Sign up today for your first box. Each box is hand-selected with products that fit your life-stage and are seasonally relevant. We'll process it right away, and you should receive it within one to two weeks."

    ReplyDelete
  39. I got box #2 today im pretty happy with mine for 5 bucks its a great deal. I use deodorant regularly so win for me. I was excited about the glossy balm but i ended up getting lovely mocha which i already own but ill pass it to a friend or my mother. overall i think its worth it for 5 dollars and only 4 times a year gives me the beauty box experience without having to pay each month (broke college student haha)

    ReplyDelete
  40. I just received my box today #2 my nail polish came in the color after dark which is a lovely blue and my glossy balm in pink me up

    ReplyDelete
  41. I received box #1 today and yes, I'm *cough* over 35 (by quite a lot...). I would have liked to have received a nail polish, but honestly, I'm really happy with the Olay and L'Oreal moisturizers because I've always wondered how they would work on my skin, but didn't want to spend the money to find out. For $5, I am quite pleased, and 4 times a year is about right for me.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I did get shipping e-mails, and I got box #1, which I was thrilled with because I'm just getting to the stage where moisturizers are the thing I'm most interested in. They're nice big samples and overall I'm very happy with it.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I received my beauty box (#2) yesterday. I got the same items as in the picture, but received a different glossy balm color (200 Lovely Nude) and nail polish color (After Dark). I also didn't receive an email saying it shipped so you could get it at any time for those still waiting!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Ordered when you first posted and received Box #1 yesterday. Tossed the hair care samples because I am pleased with my current hair products. Will pass along the lipstick because it is not my shade. Very pleased with the other items because they are all products I have been wanting to try and the sizes are so nice. Thanks for the info and I look forward to next season's surprises.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I signed up the same day you posted the link but I haven't received my box. I do hope I receive box #2. I live in N.C so maybe this week will be my lucky week.

    1. Well I'm happy to say I recieved my box today which was box #2. My Loreal Balm color was Innocent Coral and my Glosstini was shade After Dark. I am very pleased. I also wanted to mention that I am way over thirty.

  46. Got my box yesterday and I'm pretty sure I ordered it the first day available:) Never got a shipping email either. I got box #2 with the glossy balm in Lovely Mocha and nail polish in After Dark. I'm please with the value!

  47. I'm sharing samples with daughter can I put a younger birth year without it denying me bc of credit card billing etc.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I just got my box (#2) and love it. Great value, just hope it stays this way. I in my early 30s, and I think it's perfect. Only wish my nail polish was not bright yellow for fall - but can wait to use until next year.

    ReplyDelete
  49. I signed up 3 weeks ago and still don't have my box. I've called and emailed but still don't have any answers. They weren't able to look up when or if it was shipped when I called and no one responded to my email. :(

    ReplyDelete
  50. I think the different versions are based on age. I just signed up and it says "Each box is hand-selected with products that fit your life-stage and are seasonally relevant. " Because you have to put your birthday in when signing up, that is the only thing that makes sense to me.
