Subscription Central (Spoilers, Unboxings, and More)

Hi All! 


We are long overdue for an updated Subscription Sharing thread!  Whether it's BoxyCharm, Ipsy, or PopSugar we want to hear (and see) all about what you are subscribed to.





Interested in trading with other users?  Here are some things you need to know from @SydBristow and her trade threads:



IMPORTANT NOTE: To comply with Sephora's terms of use, items cannot be listed "for sale" or even for trade for Sephora or other gift cards. Please do not list "prices" either (which implies selling), but you can list approximate trade value.

Because a number of fake items have been sent in trades, it is strongly advised you provide photos of your higher-end items, including the labeling (you may be asked for it anyway) and list WHERE you purchased the item from. Fakes are readily available from less reputable sellers and can contain toxins! It is important to everyone to know where their cosmetics come from.

Please also be aware that some makeup products cannot be sanitized - please use caution in your trades. When in doubt, ask the community, it's a great resource! Used items you may wish to avoid are mascara, liquid eyeliner, lip glosses, and cream products.

Acquiring Items
Please use discretion with whom you enter into trades with. There is a summarized list of trusted traders here: Protect yourself in your trades, ask questions (such as where an item was purchased), ask for additional photos (to show level of usage and/or labeling to prove authenticity).
If you don’t feel 100% comfortable doing a trade because someone is new, you can request they send their items first.

Please use the private message system on Beauty Talk and/or tag the user you are trying to get in touch with. Communication is key! You can tell a lot about a trade by how the communication goes. If you will be unavailable for any periods of time, please be up front, and if there are any issues with shipping please be up front about that as well.

Having tracking and insurance on shipments goes a long way to figuring out where an item might be. The USPS puts anticipated delivery dates and tracking numbers right on the receipt. If there is any issue with an item you have sent out, please follow up with the carrier.

Consider providing your feedback on successful trades on this thread here:

macy.PNGI finally got my chance to join Macy's beauty box :D...and I just wanted to know what people thought of it. Do many here have this subscription? What can I expect with this box? Is the value worth signing up? Thanks!

Re: Subscription Central (Spoilers, Unboxings, and More)

@KemoLove I think its a matter of personal opinion.  I subscribe to this and I like it.  The Macys cash in the Nov bag was $10 so that brings the monthly sub to only $5.  


This is the Dec bag, not sure if you're getting this one - 


Re: Subscription Central (Spoilers, Unboxings, and More)

OMG, Z!!!!   That bag is gorgeous!!!   Can't wait to see your pics when it comes in! @ZombieMetroAnt

Re: Subscription Central (Spoilers, Unboxings, and More)

@ZombieMetroAnt~ Thanks for the response and pic! The Macy's cash is definitely enticing, ha ha. Can you stack them?? I wish I was getting December's bag 😞 I think my invitational slot didn't open up until juuuuust past this month's deadline. Looking forward to January's box! Hope it's a good one 😛

Re: Subscription Central (Spoilers, Unboxings, and More)

December Art of Organics Clean Beauty Box came extra early and it's a doozy!

Kahina Mask (value $88) and Moon Boost Lash & Brow Enhancing Serum (value $75). I don't know how she does it.


Also, I don't think I shared last month's.

Root Science Bright Eye Serum, Botnia Daily Face Cream, and Urb Apothecary Cactus Milk Bath. 

Re: Subscription Central (Spoilers, Unboxings, and More)

The packaging for all these products is beautiful, @MarciaBrady!!! ❤️

Re: Subscription Central (Spoilers, Unboxings, and More)

Never heard of this subscription @MarciaBrady the items look very interesting!

Re: Subscription Central (Spoilers, Unboxings, and More)

@ElleElleG I highly recommend it. I've discovered a lot of great products that i otherwise never would have checked out. Month to month there's a great variety of items for face & body--masks, scrubs, oils, serums, blah blah. 

Re: Subscription Central (Spoilers, Unboxings, and More)

Not sure if you saw yet @ElleElleG  but my subscription addition posted the other two spoilers for December for BOXYCHARM! 


Each box will have the Crown WH035 PRO BLUSH BRUSH and then EITHER a Beaute Basics Item (they think the bronzer) or the bellapierra Color Correcting Palette


I'm feeling a bit meh about this month - I thought i would be more holiday themed box, I was hoping for some sparkle or reds for the holidays. Oh well not every box can be good for everyone, I hope I get the bronzer I don't really color correct. 




Re: Subscription Central (Spoilers, Unboxings, and More)

@Kim888 Thanks for the spoilers!🤗


Hope I get the bronzer palette instead of the color correcting palette(fingers crossed!🤞)



Re: Subscription Central (Spoilers, Unboxings, and More)

Thanks for the tag @Kim888


👎🏽👎🏽👎🏽 LOL!  I *might* try that orange to color correct but I don't have time for that at least 95% of the time and that brush looks meh for sure.  The blush palette was already a wash for me.  Tarte's mascara, $23 full price, technically makes the box "worth it" but I need more mascara like I need a hole in the head.


Suppose the more exciting things were placed in the LE box.

Re: Subscription Central (Spoilers, Unboxings, and More)

I'm excited to try the RealHer brand...I read an article about this brand and found it inspiring.  Have been meaning to try it out!


Here's the article for reference Smiley Happy 

"1 Dad Founded an Empowering Beauty Brand For His Daughter and We're Obsessed"

Bill Xaing never really considered whether or not he was a feminist — until the birth of his daughter, Yarie. When researching the best ways he could raise his daughter, he discovered an overwhelming amount of information about how society can affect a woman's upbringing.

Xaing had been working in cosmetics for a decade when his daughter was born and decided to create a beauty brand that would empower women and create a better social environment for his daughter. He created RealHer, a cosmetics brand designed to inspire women to be their best.

"When she was born, that was the moment I realized I am a feminist, and I want to be a feminist. I want to do whatever I can to make as much difference as possible, as quickly as possible, to help more women," Xaing explained on the RealHer website.

Instead of telling women that there's a problem with how they look that they should fix, this brand tells women what's amazing about them already. Each product comes with a self-affirmation like, "I am fearless," "I am unstoppable," and "I am perfect."

The line also strives to be ethical, safe, and philanthropic. Not only are the products cruelty-free, paraben-free, and sulfate-free, but 20 percent of the profits go to the American Association of University Women. The nonprofit organization is devoted to advancing, empowering, and actualization for women and girls with leadership programs, advocacy, and education.

We love the idea of a makeup brand that helps women, because beauty should make us feel good. Read on to see some of the powerful products you should pick up from the brand"

My November Sephora Play! They all seem like good products, I love Moroccan Oil already so that’s a plus. I wish they’d send out other products instead of repeats though. This bag gives me ALL the positive vibes 💞

RE: Subscription Central (Spoilers, Unboxings, and More)

I got this one too. I was happy with everything!

Re: RE: Subscription Central (Spoilers, Unboxings, and More)

@cindyvonlovely ooo the moroccan oil smells sooo good! the origins is slightly boring, but it's an effective mask and a generous size 🙂


I really like the smell of that Burberry Blush!! I sprayed some on a paper stick and threw that into my shopping bag without thinking. I couldn't stop sniffing the air when I got home. It's a bit too strong for my body (sensitive nose), but I LOVE using it as a room freshener 😄

Re: RE: Subscription Central (Spoilers, Unboxings, and More)

I love this scent! Thanks for the tip on using these as room refreshers, I hadn’t thought of doing that. @whitepolkydots

RE: Subscription Central (Spoilers, Unboxings, and More)

@ElleElleG I'm off the boxycharm waitlist.

Re: RE: Subscription Central (Spoilers, Unboxings, and More)

🎉🎉🎉 @KNC24 . Are you getting/did you get the November box?

RE: Re: RE: Subscription Central (Spoilers, Unboxings, and More)

@ElleElleG I got my November box. I don't know 🤷🏾‍♀️ why I couldn't find this thread. The eyeshadow was surprisingly pigmented. I won't wear the lipstick until I figure out how to work for me. I'm excited for the December box. I figure beauty boxes do something special for the holidays. Sorry I'm just seeing your post

Re: RE: Subscription Central (Spoilers, Unboxings, and More)

Yay!!! Congratulations @KNC24! I can't wait to see what you think! 

Re: Subscription Central (Spoilers, Unboxings, and More)
