Subscription box photo sharing

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)

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Same!!!!  Not even sure which one I'm getting, but I am crossing my fingers for no Porefessional...

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

My box hasn't shipped yet either Smiley Sad

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

If it makes you feel any better mine hasn't arrived yet either @xxsour and I didn't complain about it (at least for this month...I think...lol) Smiley Very Happy

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

LOL. You're not being punished. I'm excited about mine, and it has arrived yet. I checked the tracking, and though it's shipped, it really hasn't made it that far yet. 

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Man I have such a love-hate relationship with subscription boxes. I recently unsubbed from all of mine (most were Asian beauty brands and also Yuzen) and I'm starting to miss that little surprise in the mail...I did enjoy Birchbox but I kept getting eye pencils which I just don't enjoy at all (I'm a liquid eyeliner girl).

 

Everyone seems to gush about Ipsy but based on all the photos I see, they don't seem to introduce a lot of new, unheard-of brands? That's one of the things I liked about Birchbox, would you guys say Sephora Play does a fair share of "new/rare" brands as well?

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

I think Sephora puts in a good variety of established and emerging brands. I've gotten samples from Farmacy, Youth to the People, Milk, and some others I can't think of at the moment. That said, the boxes are mostly filled with big name companies, which makes sense, because they tend to have larger lines. They also are probably more likely to have lush budgets for things like making deluxe samples. I say go for it.

Two subscription boxes arrived in one day!  This is my first month of Boxycharm and I must say I'm pretty happy!  My Luxie brush was folded funny in the brush protector and looks to be permanently curled. 

I'm pleased with my Ipsy bag this month as well.  Not as breathtaking as last month, but let's keep things in perspective with the price point.  I'm excited to try the nailpolish because I've heard good things about this brand.  We'll see if it passes the mommy washy hands test.  Speaking of washing, I've gotta get the grubbiness off my iPad lens.  OooopsSmiley Happy IMG_9214.JPGIMG_9216.JPG

@heartsmyface  Oh your NYX Whipped Souffle is such a pretty color!  I gave mine to my daughter because it was too bright for me... That nail polish is very lovely!

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

@Tamara76 NYX has me as a fan with these!  They feel so good on!  

The nail polish is pretty but I've decided it's undesirable.   What a waste of time reapplying it properly only to have it chip right away anyway.  It chips as much as whiteout on your nails would.  I'm disappointed cause it was the one thing I was super excited about. I heard so many great things about it too.:/

 

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Oh that's the best when subscriptions come on the same day! It's like Christmas Smiley Very Happy I was watching KathleenLights' Boxycharm video and she says if you wash the brush and shape it before it dries it should be ok @heartsmyface. Worth a try anyway lol. 

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

it was awesome, but honestly a bit overwhelmedlming to get that many new products at once.  It's harder to appreciate each item when you're bombarded with themSmiley Happy

I hope washing it is all it'll take, but there's a pretty intense curl. If not, well, I still got a great value.  It did come with a brush guard so I'll try using that to dry it.  It'll get used either way.  Baby Hearts likes when I brush his face with brushes, so this one may end up being hisSmiley Happy 

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

That's a beautiful shade of blue! Have you tried it yet?

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

I put on one coat last night but unfortunately didn't have time to do another coat and topcoat.  It's chipped already but that tends to happen with most improperly applied polishes.  The color is gorgeous and very opaque, enough that you could get away with one coat if it were sealed in properly. @MarciaBrady

PLay and Birchbox for JuneIMG_4794.JPGIMG_2804.JPG

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Play looks fairly decent this month!  I wish Birchbox still catered to Canadians.  

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

These aren't my pics but have you guys ever heard of My Little Box? 

 

They are currently only available in the UK

 

Do you ladies/gents know of any similar boxes available in the US? The boxes are adorable!

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Have you ever check out the site My Subscription Addiction? They review a bajillion boxes. Maybe a gazillion. They also list boxes by category, which should greatly help your search. Or at least put you on the right path. Hope you find something you like. That box does look super cute!

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

I've been on the fence about subscribing to the Allure Beauty Box, but it looks like I might have to jump the fence! 

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

My June Birchbox just arrived:

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Well, I finally did it. After how many months of drooling over the stuff in Box of Style, I signed up. I'm SOOOO glad I did. This is my second box and I have loved every single item so far. Here's the latest:

Beauty Counter Blush & Sunscreen, Necklace from The Brave Collection (which is perfect, because I've been wanting something like this but am really bad with actually buying jewelry for some reason --plus, part of the proceeds go to fighting human trafficking, so 110% amazing) Raen sunglasses. Sole Society hat, and Helena Quinn kimono.

 

Here's pic from the booklet showing the kimono and hat and sunglasses, because the above one probably isn't a super great representation of them...
