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)

I finally got my Julep box in the mail today, halfway through August... and they sent me the wrong one. Again. Though after looking at swatches I think I like this one better than the It Girl box I originally went with.

On the other hand I've been hearing horror stories about people getting two or three of the glitter instead of whatever they went with so I'm glad mine was a happy accident :smileyhappy:

They just sent me the wrong bracelet polish set (extra order; not a subscription box), and I am not happy.  The one I ordered was pretty and the one they sent was blah!  I hope they can exchange it.

The colors look beautiful. Mine got here as ordered, but my add-on came in a separate box and there was an extra eyeliner in it. Thankfully, it wasn't black because through other subs I have enough black eyeliner to last a couple lifetimes. I think they're giving out extra Jules for the late shipping - a lot of them. Kinda makes me wish they'd mess up every month. 

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

They're awarding just 100 points shy of a free box amount.  Too bad other boxes do not.  I got Julep two days ago and am getting enough Jules to order almost a full box to apologize, but I am still waiting on my Birchbox.  They did not give me anything for my angst.  Yes, I thought it would be fun to use the word angst as if I would be so devastated that my Julep did not arrive a few days earlier.  Too funny.

I just checked my account and they only gave me 350 Jules even though they sent an email claiming I was getting 1900.  I sent an email, but I wonder if they will respond.  I have not received a response to 2 recent emails I sent either (one of which was because they sent me the wrong items on something I ordered separately from the box).

They corrected it and gave me the Jules.  Did everyone else get 1900?  If not, call or email them to make sure you get them.  I emailed and they corrected mine.

This will be my last ipsy bag. Cheap bag, MORE BLACK EYELINER, basic lip balm. Meh. Over it.

My sentiments exactly.  I am so over black eyeliner.  Even when I am supposed to get a color too, my boxes screw up and send me black.  Happened to me twice in the same month with Birchbox and Sample Society.  That was the month that Ipsy sent the black Urban Decay one, so I had three useless black eyeliners within days of each other.  I was supposed to get pink from Sample Society, and I think purple from Birchbox.  I have a few purple, so no biggie to lose that one.  I had zero pink at that time and no intent on buying a pink one, so I was really looking forward to it.  I should have called and complained, but at least all the samples were in the box that month.  Now, I have a lovely pink (that is supposed to be Radiant Orchid), so I survived.

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

I know! Enough black eyeliner pencils and lip balm, people! I think this Christmas I'll just make everybody gift baskets and unload the excess. Man, child - I don't care. Balm and liner for everyone!

LOL!! I seriously have so many liners just from them, and almost all of them suck. Argh. Time to find a new box.

Is there a way to get off Topbox's waiting list?

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Unfortunately there is not, none of my friends have ever waited more than a few weeks for an invite though.

Awesome, thanks.

Also, is Beauty Box 5 worth the subscription? Canadians get charged an extra $3 so it's $15+ tax for us.

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Not in my opinion. I hated almost every month so I unsubscribed after about 5 or 6 months.

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

I really wanted this box but decided not to get it since I already have all of the melted lippies. Though now that I think about it, I could've just put that one in a TSB. Darn it :smileysad:

This is the best box I've received from them.  It was my last though, so they went out on a high note.
