Q: I received my first bag but there was no insert with a link to the look for that month as the description said there would be. Am I missing something? The only blog I can find doesn’t list December. Asked by Andria J., January 2021
Hi, Andria! I'm so sorry your bag did not include the insert!! I will send you an email with an image of the insert so you have a copy. I can't insert the link here, but if you place "blog." at the beginning of our NME Box website, you'll be taken to all our tutorials. The posts for the most recent shipments are normally at the top of the blog, but you'll find many other tutorials you can use your products to complete!
Q: I ordered box at the beginning of Dec. bc it said the 1st box would ship 10 days. Perfect because daughter's bday was the 19th. I never rec'd a box for her. Now 3 days b4 xmas, nothing. Will it come?Asked by Erica L., December 2020
Hi there, Erica! Thank you for your question! I apologize for the delay and hate to hear your box missed your daughter's birthday. Unfortunately, shipping and receiving delays have been prevalent during the pandemic, and it's been extremely difficult to pin down exact delivery dates. We are working hard to keep up with holiday demands and delays, and are shipping orders as soon as we possibly can. I will look into where your order is in the queue and communicate with you directly with details. I hope this answers your question, but feel free to contact me at any time with any other questions you may have.
Q: Hi-I purchased a 3 month subscription for my daughter for Christmas. I am a little confused how it works. She loves cosplay, And would like those type of boxes more. Does she get to pick and chose?Asked by Lola H., December 2020
Hi there! She won't get to pick a theme. Every month is a surprise theme, and every box includes a unique cosplay look. When you sign up for a multi-month subscription, you receive our Welcome Box as your first box. You receive everything you'd get in a normal box (wig, makeup, etc.), but this box is special, as it includes items to start building a basic sfx kit. This box also includes a creative prompt to create your first look. Each consecutive box is a new theme with new products and tools to add to your kit! (Single month orders do not receive a Welcome Box, but will receive that month's theme.)
Q: When is my subscription billed?Asked by Christine S., September 2020
Subscriptions are billed on the 11th of each month. This gives you the first 10 days of the month to decide if you would like to remain a subscriber. You are sent a reminder prior to being billed with the option to opt out, and you are able to make changes to your account at any time throughout the month.
Loved this subscription! Each box was well thought out and included some pretty cool makeup. Plus the wigs were amazing. The owner responded quickly and even gave ideas on her Pinterest page for possible cosplay looks. Definitely looked forward to each box during the Covid months!
My daughter loved it. She used the wig and make up for a cosplay character as soon as she got it. Shipping took longer than expected, it wouldn't be an issue except, Christmas. Thank you! She is awaiting her next box.
My teen daughter and her friends are having a blast with this box. Lots of materials, lots of fun!
Assured on the website that boxes ordered by Dec 15th would be mailed before Christmas. Messaged the seller and only received a very generic, “copy-paste” reply. I’ve messaged REPEATEDLY for specifics on my order but have not heard back. So far I’m having a terrible experience with this seller. If the items aren’t amazing, I wasted both time and money ordering. This feels like a scam and it ruined my daughters Christmas.
Hi, Desiree. I'm sorry to hear you're dissatisfied, and I'll do whatever I can to make it right. Unfortunately, after searching my emails, I don't see any correspondence from you. The email I sent with updates on the shipping delays I've been experiencing came directly from my personal email, not a reply bot, and it was my honest plea for understanding, considering. I will reach out to you again directly, and again, apologize for the inconvenience. My kids also missed out on an expected holiday gift, so I do feel your pain.
I love this box. I was surprise that I got a wig in my first box.
I’m so disappointed in this box. The quality of items is terrible, and not even near the $70 paid for it. A single makeup sponge, a generic black eyeliner pencil, cheap lashes, a cheap paintbrush set, and a purple bow barrette that looked like it came from a package. Neutrogena makeup wipes and coty airspun that combined wouldn’t have cost me $10 at Walmart. My daughter was so excited for this box. I was expecting her to pull out a wig, and at this price point, she should have received entire packages of makeup sponges and bows. Cancelling.
Thank you for your feedback! I'm very sorry to hear you weren't happy with your box. I've reached out to you directly to make things right and get a clear understanding of your expectations.
Our Puppet box centered around applying the Pinnochio prosthetic appliance and learning to blend it into a full makeup, but I understand if that was not your expectation. In the meantime, I will work on clearly communicating what goes inside each box. I value your opinion and hope to increase the value of your NME Box experience.
I absolutely loved this service! I had tried a few different sfx makeup services as an aspiring artist and NME box was truly the best I could find. Customer service was always prompt and quick. The box had full sized products and comes ready to make a complete special effects look, with enough product left over to use over and over on many other personal projects. Would highly recommend for any aspiring artist or simply for monthly additions to my “sfx toolbox”
Thank you so much for your review and kind words! I'm so glad you enjoyed your boxes!
I was pretty skeptical to subscribe to this box. But when it started coming in I looked up the products in the box and this subscription is totally affordable and amazing! Each product is outstanding! I am always so excited to see what challenge will come in the mail next! This has helped me create my own looks and get more practice with my hobby and love for makeup! I totally recommend this subscription!
Thank you so much for the review, Nicole! I'm so happy you've enjoyed your subscription!!
