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)

Something else for you and HookedonBeauty2 to think about- lipstick factory. I've been a subscriber for 3 (maybe 4? I'm bad at keeping up with times) months, and I've been pleased with every box, mostly. It's $22 a month. They do mostly focus on lip products, but you get a selection of others too. The last box is probably the only one I didn't LOVE, only because I got a brown lip liner. 

Other than that, it's a nice box, and I'm a lot happier with that, compared to ipsy. i haven't used anything I've gotten from ipsy, besides one of the cute bags.

Careful with that subscription, Curious.  I read that they have sent out expired lipsticks on a few occasions.  I know some of us use our lipsticks long past expiration dates, but we do not expect them to be expired long before they even arrive.

Really? Dang...I'll keep a lookout for that. Thanks for the warning!

Thanks for the suggestion! I haven't heard of either of them and will have to check those out!

I was actually looking into lip factory and lip monthly but I didn't hear too much good stuff about lip monthly. What are some of the product brands that lip factory sends out?

Off the top of my head I don't remember the brands. They aren't high end, but i've never gotten drugstore ones either, besides a nyx butter gloss. They're usually brands i've never heard of, but the quality has always been good.

That body milk smells so ridiculously good! I wish it came as a perfume.

It will probably be a long time before I open it, but I noticed it feels thin through the container.  How does it moisturize?  I need a strong one, because my skin is dry.

Question......this is my 2nd Glossy Box and I'm not familiar with all the brands. I guess I'm just used to shopping at Sephora and some department stores.

 

Brands like Sumita Beauty, Ayres, Camille Beckman, Lancer, Philip B, Napolean, Skin Inc, Malin & Goetz to name a few.....Where do you shop for these brands?

No, but be careful - I think if you sign up now, you might get the June box first.

 

Wait until after the first of July to sign up just to be sure.

 

And also, usually there's 8-10 different products, so you're not guaranteed anything specific. Just want to make sure you're not expecting one specific item. In general, the items they send out are great, so it's hard to be disappointed.

Yeah, I signed up last week thinking I would skip June and just take a chance on July but then discovered a few days ago that June was being shipped to me. So I'll be getting 3 boxes from them next month (June, July, and a full-size online order)! But I'm so excited to see GlamGlow on the list! I'm glad I changed my mind about purchasing a sample-pack from the official site.

Well, that sounds like something to look forward to!

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Ugh, it looks like everybody got exactly the same products for June. BOO! 

 

Not sure if they saw how much everybody loved the BG box and decided they could lay an egg this month or what. :smileysad:

I got the exact same one too.  I absolutely love the box itself!

The box is super cute. 

 

How much did you ladies get on your C Wonder gift card? Mine was for $10, but shipping is $10, so I doubt I'll end up using it. Not really in the market to spend money just for the sake of spending money. :smileysad:

I was curious and looked on the fb page and everyone was posting either $5 or $10. Considering it's supposed to be anything between $5-500, I'd be curious to see how many actually got say $25? $50? $100?

Well you came out better than I did, mine was $5.
