Subscription box photo sharing

I've been on the Ipsy waiting list, but still look at the thread. I thought we could have a shared thread from all the subscription boxes (including non-beauty ones likes underpants and lifestyle such as Wantable and POPSugar). That way we can live vicariously through each others goodies!

 

(I know there are unboxing videos on YouTube, but I do not have the patience to sit through a five minute video about someone apologizing for the state of their hair. And I know there are blogs where I can see photos, but everyone usually gets different items in their boxes)

Normally only two lol.  The gift one was only a 3 month sub :-) I really don't need or want three. Even two is too much so once my year is up, I will only keep one :-)

Aaaand this is my Beauty Box 5. There was also a pair of exfoliating gloves (by "Swissco"), which I'm actually keen to try out, and an H2O "Sea Lotus" body wash.

 

There's a Nubar cuticle oil, which I like. I'm over nail polishes for now so I was happy when I realized it was nail care, not polish. And that "That Awkward Moment" thins is a suuuper cheap mirror.

 

This may have been the best box I've received from them, which should tell you why I've been planning on cancelling it.

Dude, I actually like that Jergens lotion (I think that is the one) but I usually buy it from the dollar bin in Target!! I like to keep it in my car!! But in a subscription box??

Right? I don't have a problem with drug store brands in general - there are some really good products out there. But these boxes are supposed to be for special, luxurious, fun types of products. 

 

Dangit.

Here is my January Birchbox. There were three tea bags, but I hate tea so I gave two of them to the bf. The Inika loose eye shadow is a lovely (if a bit shimmery for me) slate-blue-gray.

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

I'm surprised I didn't get tea this month! What's up with them and tea?

I do NOT know about the tea. O.o ... I guess it seems like a nice, homey, ... I dunno. I can see some people liking it. It's the first time I've received tea from them, so I'm not super bugged by it.

 

I'm def interested in the cleanser, though, even if it's just because the presentation was so awesome. I am such a sucker for spiffy packaging.

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

I am jealous of that cleanser + cloth! At least I didn't get any little dinky hair ties for my short hair...

I got the hair tie last month, and I actually like the thing! I know I'm in the minority, but for me it's just the right size for a ponytail and it is indeed prettier than the hair elastic I perpetually have on my wrist. :smileyhappy:

Yes, they are pretty, but man do they not last. I use the headband version.

Ooh, uh oh. I'll have to take a back-up with me, then. Thanks for the heads up!

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Here is my January Birchbox:

 

That's a Serge Normant dry CONDITIONER (which is just alcohol, chemicals and some argan oil). Now I need dry hair prep.

 

Nail polish looks fun and I always need headbands.

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

I love reading reviews of subscription boxes but I dread the videos.

 

I used to get Birchbox and Ipsy. I have cancelled both because I felt that I was getting too many products I wasn't going to use. It was fun for a year with each (roughly) but it sort of ran it's course for me. Ipsy was also geared a little young for me and Birchbox had a few too many foils, granola bars, and stationary for my taste.

 

The only box I get now is Stitchfix. I don't do it monthly because it would be too costly. I've gotten 2 boxes so far and a third scheduled for the end of Feb. I love having someone else find cute clothes and send them to me - I had so little time to shop. I plan to stick w/ it for a while. My first box was awesome and I kept everthing. My second box was meh - I liked two tops but one of them was too small, so I only ended up keeping one item.

SALE ALERT! Total Beauty Collection is having a warehouse sale. Up to 40% off their curated boxes.

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

What I like about Wantable is that they REALLY customize your box. They ask you what seems like 100 questions about stuff you love and hate, textures and the like. It is very pricey at $40 per box or $36 each with subscription. I got a discount so I got a free second box . This is my second one. I would continue, but I'm on a no-buy. They also do an underpants box and an accessories box. I may try a one off accessories box.

OMG!!!1!! Sorry for the state of my apartment!

 

IMG_20140113_122009_598.jpg

That's a primer brush! I didn't know they existed and didn't know I needed it, but now I don't have to get my hands all silky and can open up my products after I use primers!

 

Also wedged in there was a foil sample for a BB cream.

Right??? OMG, it's called EDITING, people!! Gah! ... Sorry for the excitement there, but seriously, some of those videos are just paaainfull to watch. You just zeroed in on a big pet peeve of mine. :smileyhappy:

 

As for your idea - I dig it. A lot. I'll have to go take some pics of my Birchbox and Beauty Box 5 items. :smileyhappy:

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Hahahaha... I busted out laughing when I read that line as well!!

 

Another pet peeve of mine is when they spend FOREVER on a product, reading the description from the website or straight from the box. Yes, we can read... just let us what you got and if you like it ok?

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Got my Wantables makeup box!

 

This is what it looks like when you first open:

And here are the contents:

1. FACE Stockholm Eyelash #2

2.  Mistura Beauty 6-in1 Beauty Solution Compact

3. Sorme Lip Liner 7 Natural Nude

4. JAPONESQUE Travel Smudger Brush

5. Starlooks Single Shadow Compact in Pearl

Sample of Sorme Under Foundation Makeup Enhancer

 

 

Here's a pic of some stuff opened:

Swatches of Starlooks Pearl, Mistura Compact, Sorme lip liner:

 

5.jpg

 

If y'all have never gotten a Starlooks single shadow compact I just wanted to show the design.  Love that the shadow lifts up and applicator and mirror are underneath

 

6.jpg

 

 

 

So I really like the eyshadow (I always love good highlighting eyeshadow for the brow bone) and the Lip Liner. I was surprised with this lip liner. I've never heard of this brand. It went on easily and really lasted.  Plus it is great with pretty much all neutrals.  I look forward to trying the eyelashes.  Not really sure what to think of the "6-in-1" compact.  I feel it could be used as a blush, maybe an eyeshadow, but nothing else. It is a little to pink to be a contour color.  

 

Still waiting on Ipsy and Glossybox but since I just joined, I think I will get February's boxes
