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)

My Ipsy + Glossybox came in today:

The only products I've tried so far are the Pixi tinted lip balm (what tint??) and the Bare Minerals BB cream eyeshadow -- by which I was pleasantly surprised! It goes on nice and though it's nude it's just a little shimmery, and it doesn't irritate my eyes at all like most cream shadows do. 

 

And the GRE books in the background also came in today. :smileytongue: I left a PhD program last year and here I am, going for it again. Oh, I hope I know what I'm doing, lol.

Good luck on the GRE!! I take my boards in 4 months - I am having the same feelings :smileyhappy:

Your Glossybox looks awesome! And it came so early - awesome!! Glad to hear you like the BM BB eyeshadow - I got that too, now I'm looking forward to trying it

The Glossybox looks amazing! Can't wait to get mine. My Ipsy and Birchboxes this month weren't my favorites. Seeing this gives me hope. Good luck on your GRE!

Sample Society arrived.  My hair product exploded, but everything was in the box!  Finally, a month I do not have to call customer service.

My hair mask also leaked. Luckily nothing was ruined :smileyhappy:

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Slightly annoyed with my ipsy bag, because I'm honestly not going to use most of this. Not going to use the tanning oil, or the hair stuff. I'll use the eyeshadow and I have the lip product on now, but seriously do I have to get something from POP in every dang bag, I mean REALLY?

*pouts* considering unsubscribing...I just haven't been as happy with ipsy as I thought I'd be.

I got the exact same box...how do you like the lippie? Does the color look okay with your skintone?

It's kind of sheer, but also a little lighter than something I'd normally use. I wish I hadn't used it though, but since I did I'll just use it when I'm around the house.

I got the pop bronzer in mine too, is it wrong that I think I really like it?

Finally, one of the products I can actually try soon.  I am hoping to try this tomorrow.  It looks a little dark for me, but I will give it a try.

 

I love finding things I like in bags that I never would have bought otherwise, so I do not think it is wrong that you like it.

I tried the Pop bronzer last night.  It was all right.  Nothing I would buy, but nothing I feel inclined to get rid of either.

I got the Coastal Scent sample eyeshadow as well, it sucks. It is not pigmented at all. I used it with my UD eye primer, and it did not show up at all. Then I tried to swatch it on my inner wrist after putting primer on my wrist, nothing. And it is so powdery.. When I pat my brush down, it just dusts up. And for the N4 hair spray, it smells really bad to me and my sister, so its going in the TSB box, but it works really well.

Although I agree with you about the N4 (it's awful!!), I had the total opposite experience with the Coastal Scents sampler! I found it to be buttery and extremely pigmented! I couldn't believe it was that pigmented, actually. Even without primer. O.o

 

It never ceases to amaze me how people can have such drastically different experiences with products like these.

I swear the N4 shampoo & conditioner they sent last month made a bunch of my hair fall out - way more than usually does when I wash it. I think the whole brand is hexed. LOL. Bummer about the Coastal Scents. I was excited to get that sample, but haven't tried it yet. I have a couple of their matte single shadows and the color payoff and texture are great. Deep Sigh.

I hate products that make my hair stink.  Thanks to my desire to try It's a 10, I have 2 opened leave in conditioners right now.  It will be a while before I try this one.

I'd like to know how you like the Coastal Scents sampler! I was hoping to get that in my box, so naturally I didn't get it. :smileytongue: I'm thinking of getting the full size w/ my Birchbox points.

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

The shimmery ones are SUPER shimmery. The matte one is nice and has a silky texture. The colors are gorgeous. A bit more product is needed to get a good color payoff, but nothing outrageous. If you order the palette you should check the Coastal Scents website for deals (in case there's other stuff you'd rather use your BB points for). I ordered some matte shadows from them a while back and get a ton of emails from them for sales. Big ones. Some are for more than half off.

I barely wear makeup and have already promised people I will use other palettes first.  I had never even heard of Coastal Scents until I received a brush in an Ipsy bag.  The brush was decent quality considering its cost.  As soon as I try the palette, I will let you know, but it is going to take me a bit.  I have seen people on the What Are You Wearing thread post that they use this brand, so hopefully someone who has used it will chime in sooner than it takes me to get back to you.

Literally just got my Sample Society box. I'm loving the revamp -- it was much needed. Even though I wish that I got a different color of the L'Oreal Colour Riche lipstick (it's too dark of a red for my taste) and probably won't use a metallic nail color, I'm excited to see that they are moving in the right direction with a better selection of products (and not primarily skincare). I also wanted to mention that the Maison Francis Kurkdijan fragrance developed interestingly...it first smelled like bug spray for about 15 mins, which was awful. However, when I came back to it, it's quite nice and elegant. Maybe it just can't be one I spritz on right before I head out the door...
