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 July Birchbox - REALLY happy with this month! (Except the Whish shave cream was not too awesome. I shredded my legs using it!)

My July Ipsy - Pretty happy. The Bare Min cream shadow was waaaay better than I expected. So was the Elizabeth Mott Benetint lip stain. But I have zero use for tanning oil and I'm one of those few who hates They're Real mascara. (Also, the bag is SUPER cheap looking.)IMG_20140717_202806.jpg

 

And my July Sample Society - Everyone got the same thing this month, so no surprises. Except my hair mask didn't explode or leak. Even though I recognoze that this is a quality box, I don't expect to get a lot of use out of it. I'm not into nails or fragrances and I prefer liquid highlighters to powders. Oddly, I'm happy with the L'Oreal lippie and the hair mask.

You got a fantastic Sample Society Box!  I've been hearing about how amazing the Maison Francis Kurkdjian scents are, but unfortunately I don't live near any retailers that carry them.  

 

I would love to hear how you get on with that L'Oreal liquid lipstick.  I have one in Rouge Allegro, and while I adore the color (it's a beautiful strawberry red), it has a tendency to wander out of my lip lines.  I'm sure it's nothing that a lip liner can't solve, but I was hoping that it would be a low-maintenance, apply-and-go, type of product.

Nice boxes! I actually got a very good shave with the Whish but my issue with it is the inconsistent smell. Sometimes it smells wonderful (when more of the acai comes through) and then other times the grapefruit just kills it. Kind of gives off a sour smell (mine did at least).

Terrible packaging on that mini liner though! Feminine hygiene products anyone?

I hate They're Real Mascara, but that is the cutest box ever.

I'm actually not a fan of the mascara either, I mainly enjoyed this months box for the novelty of it. It'll go on display somewhere... Haha

I thought I was the only one who hated They're Real Mascara.

Everyone loves it, but it just gave me like, FIVE, lashes. Not even nice ones-- spidery, brittle-looking messes.

So glad to find someone agrees haha

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

A lot of months don't look like this. I'm just lucky because I got my Wishlist selection this month, it's hit or miss like almost all of the beauty box subscriptions.

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. 

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

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

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Oh my gosh your glossybox came in already? Ah! So exciting!

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

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.

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

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.
