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)

Mine was $5 too.  Anything less than $50 or so would not entice me to make an order whilst on my no buy.

I'm guessing it can't be used for shipping costs, so no matter what you're stuck paying $10 in shipping. Super lame.

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Here is the latest Glossybox.  I am excited for the nail polish and the actual box.  The rest does not excite me, but we shall see how it all goes.

I got the same products, but I haven't checked what's on the gift card yet. At first I was like "meh", but it's not THAT bad. I like hand/body creams, the taupe-y eyeshadow stick thing is nice, nail polish is always useful, so the only thing I don't care for is the hair product, and that's only because I can't really use it in my curly hair.

If you're a fan of lavender, the Ayres Patagonia is among the most fabulous blends ever. I'm pretty sure that's what Heaven smells like. Also, I can't wait to do flag nails. I don't typically go the nail art route, but I can't resist this opportunity. LOL. I haven't really checked out any of the other products yet. They look promising!

I finally got around to using the Ayres Patagonia as I had really bad sunburn a couple of weeks ago and been using anything I can get my hands on to moisturize.

 

I. LOVE. IT. The texture, the way it absorbs... LOVE. IT.

 

I need to figure out where I can buy it.

I do like lavender.  Painting my nails will be a lot of fun.  I have grown them out a little, so I can play with these polishes for next week.

I love lavender, and already have a few different hand/body creams that use it. Looking forward to checking it out though. 

 

I used the eye shadow pencil today... application went pretty well. We'll see how it holds up today... haven't checked on it yet.

What are those two things in the middle? The one that looks pencil-ish and the jar?

 

Does Glossybox always arrive this late in the month?

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Eye shadow chubby pencil and body balm. 

 

And yes... most people get it within the last week of the month... half the time I don't get it until early the following month.

I love seeing what everyone got in their subscription boxes!! I need to see more Sample Society (do I keep it?) and Glossybox (do I get it?) pics!

 

I forgot to get pic of my Sample Society (but it was the same as Notcreative's, so just look at her's twice).

 

Here's my June Birchbox, which I am liking so far... mostly. The Perlier is very effective and I would adore it - but I find its scent maddening!! And it will.not.go.away. Meanwhile, the fragrance is actually really nice (although I'm not a big fragrance person.) I plan to try the hair stuff this weekend.

And here's my June Ipsy. I actually love the NYX, even though I was afraid teh color would be too orange-y for me. I liked the eye liner at first, but more than half of it had worn off by after about 6-7 hours. The BB Cusion is actually pretty neat. I think I may like it! :smileyhappy:

Were you shorted the extra sample too or did you get all of yours?  My replacement is due in today, so I hope it contains the missing one this time.

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Oop - No it wasn't shorted. But the sample you were shorted is really tiny. (Because that matters?)

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

(0) Hearts

I cannot wait to see it now.  It will be crazy if I had them replace it and it arrives and is a one time use.  I had no idea how big it was going to be though, because I never saw it.  I am going to log into the other site to see if someone has a picture of the size there, because I am too impatient to wait another hour or so for mine to be delivered.

I hate Beauty Box 5! I subscribed for a while; every month I hoped it would get better. But every month I was disappointed. I did get a couple things here and there that I wound up liking (I actually liked the Vitabath, although I received a different scent.) I never understand it when I see people saying they love them. O.o

 

My Ipsy was the same as yours except I got the BB Cusion... thing... instead of the mascara. I wasn't sure what to make of it, but I think I like it :smileyhappy: And I was surprised to find that I like the NYX color quite a bit. :smileyhappy:

I find you get what you pay for with Beauty Box 5 and it's nothing special.

 

I really liked Ipsy this month :smileyhappy:

Nicole Ritchie ACTUALLY makes a EDP or an EDT ???   I have never seen nor heard of it. That definitely can not be a high - end product. WOW, I guess anyone can market and put out a fragrance or make up these days....

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

My Birchbox arrived a few days ago:

20140609_181329.jpg

I'm pretty happy with it. The lip pencil is such a pretty color, and right now I'm kind of obsessed with purples. And even though I'm a bit tired of the hair product samples, I kind of love that I got a 3-in-1 product (shampoo, conditioner, and some kind of conditioning milk thingy...) because I can do individual reviews...= 70 points for this month's reviews!! :smileyvery-happy:

 

Also, after seeing Noncreative's Julep box below, I caved and subscribed, lol (used a promo and got it for free and just paid shipping). It came in pretty quickly:

20140613_002331.jpg

Pretty colors, and I'm excited to try the blush. I'm not sure what those rough spongy things are for, lol. Pretty happy with this box, BUT after reading the fine print on Julep, I was surprised to find out that I can skip a box only after 6 months of membership. Based on what I had heard/read here and there I was under the impression that you could skip whenever, which is why I joined. I didn't realize that the 1x-every-6-months thing was a new policy for newer members, so I'm kind of disappointed with that. $20/month is a lot for a predominantly nail polish subscription (at least for me) and I was hoping to do it only every other month or something. I'll wait til the next box revealing comes up, see if any of the boxes appeal to me, otherwise I need to call and cancel. :-( Sorry, /Julep rant, lol.

 

Just leaves Glossybox and Ipsy for June, but I'm going out of town so I'm going to miss their arrival! Oh, the anguish at being many miles away from one's unopened subscription boxes!!

I got that lipstick in my Birchbox last month, and I love it.

 

Yay to getting a Julep box.  I think those orange things are buffers, but I have not used mine yet.  I really want to try a blush from them.  Please let me know what you think of the blush.

 

I agree the rules for new members stink.  I am probably going to get one more box (since I paid for three) and cancel.  I may join again down the road, but I agree with you on acquiring the nail polish.

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

The orange sponge blocks are indeed nail buffers. I had to research that. When I got my first box I was wondering what the heck they were.

 

I cancelled after two months when I found out about the no skipping. I don't use that much nail polish.
