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:

 

Spoiler

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: http://community.sephora.com/t5/Off-Topic/List-of-Successful-Traders-January-2015/td-p/1852954 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 donโ€™t feel 100% comfortable doing a trade because someone is new, you can request they send their items first.

Communication
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.


Delivery
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.

Thanks for the tag @Kim888

 

๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿฝ 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 

Spoiler
"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 โ€” 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"

Cross-posting here. Thanks @Kim888 for notifying me of the new thread!

 

Spoilers for my December Ipsy bag came in! At first I thought I got 2 lippies and was thinking "Wow, that really matched the beauty profile I gave them!" But the chubby crayon is actually an eyeshadow. Still loving this bag altogether though! Smiley Happy

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

The January Allure Box will include a FULL SIZE of the Sunday Riley CEO Serum ($85)!! Saw this on MSA.

 

I really want to try this.. what a steal! I love the regular CEO cream and hope this one works similarly ๐Ÿ˜„ I do wonder if it's not doing very well though. It was offered in the Glossybox LE Box and also as a SpaceNK GWP

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

@whitepolkydots you sold me. A full size ceo!!! Iโ€™m almost out of mini that came in a Sephora favs kit. I was literally debating on how many months to sign up for cause I want the December box.

Same here! I signed up yesterday night when I saw this. I...

Same here! I signed up yesterday night when I saw this. I will receive the November box and December box. Cant wait!!!

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

I wonder whatโ€™s going on with that ceo cream - because it was in the glossier limited edition box as well (according to my subscription addiction). Or maybe hey are being extra generous lol but Iโ€™m always suspicious when a product starts showing up in a ton of different boxes lol

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

That's a good point @Kim888 !!  I wonder if it'll be in BoxyCharm too then ๐Ÿค”

 

I ended up not getting the Glossier LE (it was on my to do list and I still managed to forget, smh) but for $10 or $15 I'll definitely take it.  Hoping to avoid signing up for more than just the January box though

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

I didnโ€™t get the glossier either - I would be excited if it showed up in the January boxycharm box though!

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

Hmm.... I wonder if I sign up now if I'll receive the January box ๐Ÿค”

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

You would get the December box if you sign up this month @ElleElleG.

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

Wow! Glad I did the 3 month with bonus on black friday. Can anyone give a comparison to Ole truth serum?

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

@whitepolkydots Iโ€™ll be definitely getting the January box !! This is such an amazing deal! Thank you for posting about it๐Ÿ˜˜

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

I also love the CEO cream and can't wait to try this!

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

Hi All!

 

I've noticed some discussions about trading items and I wanted to be sure that you all were aware of Sephora's guidelines on trading (items may NOT be sold via this platform).  In her trade threads @SydBristow has provided a wealth of information, some of which I have added to the original post of this thread for your convenience.  If you are interested in trading with other users please be sure that you are aware of the guidelines and other best practices.

 

Thanks ๐Ÿ˜

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

@ZombieMetroAnt I wish I hadnโ€™t cancelled my subscription to macys beauty box!! I was so disappointed in the November box I immediately cancelled my subscription... I just joined back in last night lol and Iโ€™m on the waitlist๐Ÿ˜‚..hope I get off the list soon so I can get the December box ๐Ÿ˜„

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

@ZombieMetroAnt That bag is adorable!! 

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

Those of you who ordered the LE BoxyCharm have you received them yet?  (or are they on the way??)  What are your thoughts?

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

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