I looked their website over, and I didn't see any info about a recurring box or bag. l guess they be posting the info about this on the 22nd? I'd do a monthly sub just to try it if the brands are high quality and some, if not all, are full sized. 

Thanks for posting the info.

A few months ago, Beauteque offered free sample bags, and now it looks like they're about to launch their first subscription.

I've got a bit of info from Beauteque and found out that they are going to be $22 with shipping included.

I'm definitely interested to see what's in these, and what direction they plan on taking this!

Here's the most recent post they put up on their facebook:

Oh whoops, looks like I didn't look hard enough for an existing thread. This is why I don't use the internet on no sleep! ;) /emoticons/wink@2x.png 2x" width="20" height="20" />

Here's some stuff I found out!

-Pre-Ordering for the Beauty Bags starts today (Monday) and when you pre-order you get a free Essie nail polish. Not sure what time they will officially make it available for pre-order.

-You get to choose the items/shades etc that you want in your bag, and that include TWO my beauty diary masks, making a total of 7 items.

-They are going to be $22 shipping included, however they're releasing coupon codes for bloggers that will give $2 off (I have requested one that will not be an affiliate code of any kind so that I can share it with you guys!)

- I'm not sure how often this subscription will be (monthly, maybe?) And while I really like the idea of choosing my own items, I do like the allure of the "surprise" so I am hoping in the future they will have the bags be a bit more secretive!

I am super excited to find out more about this and watch this subscription develop over time, as I would love an alternative to Memebox that's a bit less frequent and crazy, less expensive, and ships from the US!

here is the link (no pictures yet) of the boxes

http://www.beauteque.com/july-bag-1/

they have a single july one and then a 3 month sub of their boxes.  It seems really nice and I will look into this for sure - just not now, because I have a glut of memeboxes coming my way in July & August.  If I sub to this, it will be in the fall, as I have SO much stuff right now.

Memebox's bait & switch on the office essential box has gotten me a little upset and I hope they make good on the fact that they misrepresented that box.

What happened with the office essentials box? I didn't get that one so I'm curious! (I know it's off topic but hey-it's all korean beauty stuff, right?) ;) /emoticons/wink@2x.png 2x" width="20" height="20" />

I'm really excited about the Beauteque bag. I have done a few reviews for them and I think that this is such a genuine and amazing company. They are so excited about the products they sell and connecting with their customers. Seriously-buy something from them or contact them and see for yourself how ridiculously nice they are. I feel good about supporting a company like that.

Plus I've been dying to try those pudding packs, give me all the skinfood hand creams (perfect for my purse) and if I told you I didn't use a sheet mask every single day I'd be lying! Can't wait to get my hands on this and do a review.

I know they just launched this and they're more-or-less testing the waters of subscription bags/boxes, but I'm definitely interested to see how they develop!

@MissJexie  They had this spoiler (it was up as of 7:30am our time) and it was the reason why I purchased it.

memebox.oe.spoiler.jpg

some members got their box today and it isn't in there - and the info card doesn't mention it.  Memebox didn't let us know that this wasn't in our box in advance - like they did with the green tea box - and didn't offer us points OR allow us to cancel it.

I wrote them an email this morning, with the screenshot, and about an hour later, they removed the spoiler from their website!!!   Still no communication from memebox on this.

ehk. That's super shady and I really hope they make it right or I'll lose a lot of respect for them!

I will be interested in your review of the Beauteque bag.  I just have SO much coming to me these next couple of months, that I just cannot.  The bag looks very cute!!  I just have a ton of handcream, eyeshadow up the wazoo (I don't buy any of the makeup memeboxes because of this) , don't want an eyebrow pencil

if they did a mask/facial care bag, I would purchase that because those are my weaknesses right now :D /emoticons/biggrin@2x.png 2x" width="20" height="20" />

I'm on the fence with this one.  They're so new just as a company, I don't think they know what they are getting into with subscriptions (if that's what this is, I can't tell). 

Part of the problem is that they are more expensive than buying from some Korean stores or Amazon, etc and they charge shipping.  You pay a premium from their shop but you certainly get it quicker, thats for sure.

I know they want to capitalize on what Memebox is doing and I'm glad because I think there's a great market for it but they just barely even started being a business!  Eek!

If they could make some good business connections with some korean make up houses and do a mostly makeup bag, I think they could corner that market pretty quick.

I'm gonna watch and see what happens :D /emoticons/biggrin@2x.png 2x" width="20" height="20" />

OK So I got the bag today and I'm actually really happy with it.

It's really hard NOT to compare to Memebox, but I have to remember that Beauteque's beauty bags are going to be more like Ipsy or Glossybox. I don't think it was 100% a winner for me, but I look at Glossybox, which is pretty much the same price, and it suddenly is a much better deal. Looking at the subscription on it's own without comparing it to other subscriptions or companies, it's worth the money for me. As nice as it is that they included some of their own products, I'm hoping for more Korean products in next month's bag. I've gotta say though, the Beauteque brush is pretty fabulous. I wish there was less mask-related skin care and a bit more variety overall, but that's just the blogger/reviewer side of me talking. I like the direction their going and I'm genuinely excited to see where this subscription goes.

Well that's because of 2 factors: they're in New Jersey and I'm in MA, and also because they sent them out early to bloggers for review. I believe they're only available for pre-order right now as far as I know.

Even so, I agree about being memed to the max lol. I live on an extremely fixed income, and I'm able to get memeboxes with very strict budgeting, so I don't get nearly as many as some other ladies do, but I think at this point I have 9 or so in Meme-limbo.

I like the break from Memebox that Beauteque is offering in the sense that I know it's just a cute little beauty bag filled with fun stuff and it's ONLY once a month. It's also nice not having to buy it 1-2 months in advance or waiting a ridiculously long time for shipping, lol. :) /emoticons/smile@2x.png 2x" width="20" height="20" /> I think that they're still getting their footing, but I'm very interested to see where they end up taking this.

MissJexie,

Read your blog and bought one with your code. When I checked out, there was no mention at all about the Essie nail polish. Not that it's a deal breaker for me or anything, but I'm not sure they are still offering it with the July bag purchase.. I wrote their CS to ask. 

 I love Korean beauty products and it will be nice to have something to compare all the Memeboxes I'm getting to another Korean company's curated box. 
It was also nice to be able to customize the product selections so much. That was impressive. 

Count me in on the multitude who have over a dozen Memeboxes ordered and arriving, well, soon. :) /emoticons/smile@2x.png 2x" width="20" height="20" />
I've got to stop buying so many. They tempt me so much. :) /emoticons/smile@2x.png 2x" width="20" height="20" />
