Anyone interested in another traveling box?!

[ Edited ]

BOX IS FULL, LIST IS CLOSED!

 

I'm moving out of state mid-Jan and really would like to unload my entire makeup talk.com swap list so I don't have to take it/pack it!  I'd prefer to start the box due to that - would any one be interested in getting another traveling box going!  

 

posting the rules (if agreed to) from another swap box:

 

This box is open for US shipping only. The shipping becomes more expensive for Canada, and takes longer due to border checks.

 

1. Pick Your Number (first to a number gets it)
2. Start collecting your beauty goodies
3. Read through the Rules below to know what is allowed & what is not

Allowed:
☆ High-End products and items you got from subscription boxes (please keep drugstore items to a minimum- MAX of 2 drugstore items per person) a few samples are ok too.
☆ All opened items must be labeled ("swatched", "opened", "tried/used"…)
☆ Fragrance if it's in a spray bottle (can be 1/2 used too) & must be wrapped
☆ Nail polish must be tightly closed & bubble wrapped or in a box
☆ Makeup as long as you've cleaned it with alcohol & it doesn't have big fingerprint marks/dents in it
☆ Mascara if it's sealed/ brand new never used
☆ Tools/Brushes/Cases/Bags/Empty Jars as long as they are clean
☆ Anything that is sealed
☆ Skin care items in tubes & bottles Jars only allowed if it's sealed or unopened
☆ Items will be organized in bags by type. Make sure products are wrapped well so they won't leak or break & ruin everything else
☆ Keep non beauty related items to a minimum (please do not overload the box with makeup bags, cases, etc).
☆ every item needs to be inside a plastic bag/ziplock

Not Allowed:
☹ Pre-made samples
☹ Taking more than you put in. Keep the Value of items equal
☹ Heavily used items (except for perfume)
☹ Swatching items in the box
☹ Keeping the box for more than 3 days. (USPS does home pickup, so no EXCUSES! ) If you are traveling or something comes up, please let us know ASAP so we can move you on the list.

Rules
-don't keep the box for more than a few days (ALSO YOU MUST INCLUDE A TRACKING NUMBER it makes it more fun anticipating your turn)
-don't put in anything unsanitary
-send your address to the person above you
-replace what you took with something as nice or nicer
-minimal drugstore items (2 or so per person)
-don't take all of one kind of item, for example, if there are 3 of one perfume, take only 1 so that others will have a chance to try them
-post in a picture and/or text what you took and left (picture AND written description preferred)
-package things carefully and put things in ziplock bags
-have fun, try some things you haven't tried before
-if you think there is a need for more rules, post a reply to this

☆ NO RESERVE ☆
☆ No Swatching items from the box ☆

UNLESS sealed NO:
NOTHING THAT CAN'T BE CLEANED or SANITIZED

Hi Ladies !!! I am new to beauty talk, and came across this post. I would absolutely love to join this travelling box group, if it isn't full yet

It is full, however most boxes require some sort of requirements- hearts, posts, verified trades, and personal relationships with some of the members. If you're interested in boxes I would get to know your fellow BTers, and keep your eyes peeled.

Usually box requirements are posted on the original post, and somewhere on the post (usually at the top) it will say "Box is full!" like this one does as an indication.

Good luck and welcome to BT! :smileyhappy:

Sorry about the extra empty spoiler tags . It acted like it wasn't working. anyway Mariah approved trade.

As you could see from the 1st photo it was a big box and needed thinned immensely to fit in a large flat rate USPS box. So I took most everything out of it's pkging, pulled the majority of the foil samples, pulled the larger items already posted in this thread. After checking with Mariah, kinchikween & person11 we pulled all the swatched eye & lip products & the nail polishes.  All the above will either be sent to Mariah or doinated locally as she decides.

  Also I pulled the ELF blush that was old and separating/cracking in the bottle. I trashed it with Mariah's ok.

I still did not have enough room to get everything in the box I wanted to put in so the PTR Moisturizer & the Catwalk palette just would not fit no matter what I tried, so they are in a box to Mariah with some things I was sending her anyway & a couple items she wanted pulled due to size to free up space.

 

I did not show the surprise bag I picked as they are similar with some slight variations &  don't want to spoil it for the other 2 ladies.

 

All the items I added to the box are new except the PTR ( used 10-12 times maybe) & the Catwalk palette (swatched 2x)

 

Box is on it's way to Kimchiqween.  USPS# 9114901159815162031324 expected delivery Friday 8/8.

When the box arrived to me it was a large box and packed full.  There were surprise bags for the people following spoiled brat  along with an apology for the delay.  I then sent checked with carengarden to see if the idea Mariah & I had would work so she could still participate. She thought it would so I sent photos for her to chose her goodies. She sent photos of her contribution and Mariah approved the trade. 

The box when I got it.

Is this box back on track?  :smileyhappy:  I know I already had my turn but I want to continue watching stuff come and go. 

Mariahk83

Re: Anyone interested in another traveling box?!

yes, the box is back on track!  carenganda21 was able to participate too, OKLady sent pics and she was able to choose what she wanted, and sent pics back of what she'd put in.  She's in AK so we thought this way would be faster.  OKLady is trying to pare down the box still, no way it's all fitting into a large flat rate!

What an awesome idea! Can you explain how this works? I'd love to do this. What a perfect thing to do when you have nice make up but colors don't work, etc.

Re: Anyone interested in another traveling box?!

Some more items to chose if you want me to leave them in the box.mariah's box polish post 001.JPG

Re: Anyone interested in another traveling box?!

Ok  ladies, I have the box and it is overflowing a large USPS box. So I am going to post some of the larger items. If any one wants any of these please let me know as soon as possible. any thing not wanted will be pulled to either be sent to Mariah or donated locally as Mariah decides.

Anyone else still here?  I still check this thread every once in a while hoping the box will get moving again.  Its really sad to think that my stuff and everyone else's contributions might not find good homes or go to charity  :smileysad:

no worries, they will - i think the big concern at this point is heat - OKLady is in OK and I'm in south TX!
