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)

Julep box came today. I think my cat wants me to do her nails… 

 

I tried the lip color and it's really nice - moisturizing, great pigmentation, and applies easily. I didn't leave it on long, so I can't comment on its staying power. Looks great while it's fresh, though!

Unrelated to Julep but your cat is so pretty!!

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Awwww…thanks. I'll tell her you said so. She loves attention  - clearly. LOL.

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

She was probably trying to figure out if she can fit in that box.  That's what my cats would do!

Fellow BTs I have a question for all of you that have the monthly boxes. Is there a way to control what kind of products you get. For example stuff that is sulphate free or paraben free or pthalate free? I want to try one of these services but I'm afraid I'd get stuff that I just wouldn't use or try.

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

I subscribe to Ipsy, Birchbox, Glossybox, and Julep, and as far as I know ingredient specifications can't be made. Julep ships only their products, so you could check ingredients before you make your box selections. I recommend checking out previous boxes on the various servers' sites as it will give you an idea of the brands and types of products they send out.

This month's boxycharm! Really enjoying this subscription service, since I'll actually be using everything I got! Smiley Happy

 

I also got my ipsy bag a few days ago, but it's the same one everyone else has been getting (with the eyeliner, pore refiner, mascara, blush/bronzer, and lip balm) so I didn't bother with a picture.IMG_3185.JPG

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Have you been with Boxy Charm for a long time? I REALLY love the look of this box!

Sorry I'm just seeing this now! But I've only just subscribed in July. I'm loving all of my boxes so far, my only complaint is that there's nowhere on the website that says where you can enter preferences such as skin tone, whether or not you use certain products, etc. But then again, it's still a newish box that's just now gaining some popularity so maybe they'll add that feature soon! Smiley Happy But I tend to be pretty adventurous with using new products and I'll (almost) try everything once! So for me, it's 100% worth the money! My September box should be here any day now so I'll be sure to post a picture of that one too!

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Awesome! I subscribed yesterday, hopefully it was in time enough to get the september box.

I tried to cancel my replacement Birchbox, but I was told it was too late.  She told me to just enjoy the items as extras.  I like this way less than my first box, so I am glad this was "free."

Why is Glossybox showing pictures of a BeautyBlender on their page for this month if they're not sending it out?!

 

I hope when I get my box I'll find out I'm wrong! But already two of the same boxes... another month with no variety Smiley Sad

Next month is looking like a good one, and there's a bit of variety. They're teaming up with Harper's Bazaar. If you go to the Bazaar site and then go to their shop option/by issue/September/page 3, you can see everything they may or may not be putting in yours. There is some pretty exciting stuff.

I'm really not a They're Real! fan, so I didn't have the school girl reaction over that one. The OCC Lip Tar has never appealed to me either, but I'll definitely still try it.

 

Definitely an improvement over the last couple of months though.

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

I know right? I wish they would give me a beauty blender lol. 

 

I am so excited about next month and Harper's Bazaar! I am kind of disappointed in this month though considering that it was their birthday month :/

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!
