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)

This is the box I got with a bright pink nail polish - in fact they sent me two - not sure why? I canceled an order and they refunded the money, but apparently they didn't stop the shipment on the box? Who knows - but this is the 2nd time their CS has made a mistake, luckily this one was in my favor!

it's not just for lip products, they include other products..their main thing is lip stuff though.

Nice! I'm anxiously waiting for an update on my Glossybox...it's been stuck on the "paid" status for almost 3 weeks!! It's usually much faster than this. :-/

Same here! It looks like a good one, though.

Mine is still in that state too. Looks like some good stuff to me!

I feel kinda guilty posting in light of Notcreative's BB problem, but I've GOT to show my pics! Pic sharing is one of my favorite arts parts of getting these boxes! I suppose that's silly, but... whatever. :smileyhappy:

 

Here's my Birchbox... I'm pretty happy with it, I'm always psyched to get a face mask and the bronzer is decent. BBs don't usually have enough coverage for me, but otherwise this one is pretty good, so far.

Here's my Ipsy. It was not a good month. The liner was pretty bad and the mascara wasn't great (although I liked having the chance to try it without buying it.) The lip balm smelled super grape-y... but it has GLITTER in it! I'm 41, I  don't want glitter in my lip balm. :smileytongue:

Aaaand the Sample Society. I'm sure everyone's the same, but it was SO awesome this month, I have to post it anyway. :smileyvery-happy:

Wow! The Sample Society Box is especially impressive :-)

They really seem to be stepping up their game! :smileyhappy: I like their new product booklet, too. MUCH better than what they used to do and better than the sample list cards the other boxes do. :smileyhappy:

They put out the first spoiler for Sept.  A full sized Resorsea Eye Cream ($85).  I loved everything in the box this month.

Holy moly! ... I do already have an awful lot of eye creams, though.

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

My Birchbox finally arrived today (after not updating the tracking for 8 days)!  I emailed them and asked them to cancel the replacement box.  My box is the exact same as yours.  As a matter of fact, all three of the boxes you just posted were the exact same as mine.  I love this box, so I am happy it arrived.

This is what they were going to replace it with, so I am very happy my original arrived.

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

YAY!

 

Also, how funny is it that we always seem to get the same boxes/bags? 

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

[ Edited ]

We must have similar profiles (if they're legit), because sometimes I get items that could not have come from my profile.  Did you watch the videos where they gave sneak peeks into three members boxes?  One member had the same box as us, and the reason she was given the item totally made sense for me.  I think they may actually be legit for Birchbox.

 

 

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Was it? I saw the videos, but didn't remember that one was like ours.

 

I think the profiles are actually reasonably legit for BB, but I know they don't use the reviews we write in determining our boxes. Meanwhile Ipsy's profile seems meaningless but the reviews we make do matter.

 

Have you seen the sneak peek for next month? They've shown the items that we can choose from. I've already received two of the four and I seem to recall not being super interested in the other two. ::shrug::

I have not seen the previews, so I will check that out now.  

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Here's my Birchbox.

 

 

 

Oh wait.  There's no picture, because I still have no box.  They told me they will check inventory to see if I can get a replacement but it will not be the amazing one I was expecting.  AKA a leftover box.  Boo hoo.  I upgraded to an annual subscription because of how awesome the box looked, and I am not even getting it now.  

 

Rant over.
