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)

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.

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?

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

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.

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.

I guess all those missing and exploded samples were finally too much? With your history with them, I can't say that  blame you. Although they do seem to be making a new effort to turn their service around. I hope it keeps up! These last two boxes were awesome.

I may add them back on next year when I cancel Julep if they keep up the good bags.  I liked the last box too.  Even though my hair product exploded, I was able to use it once.  I enjoyed it, and there is probably enough for 1-2 more uses.  I wonder how many uses you get from a non exploded one, 5-6 probably.

Ohhh I like this box. I may have to subscribe. What color TF melted lippie is that? peony?

notcreative

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Yes, it is melted peony.  This box has a history of leaving out a sample the site says you're receiving.  It has already happened to me twice, so I decided to cut this box when I made the decision to go from 5 to 2.

Which two are keeping? I imagine Birchbox is one of them. :smileyhappy:
