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 don’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.

@juliehnguyen I'm the same way! I think I can refer people. If you're interested, PM me and I'll try to figure it out. I'm not sure what you get.

@juliehnguyen YES! It's a different every month. My bf got me a 6 month subscription for Xmas. I got South Korea for signing up last month. I liked everything expect a noodle thing it had a funny taste. You can YouTube some unboxings. It is a lot of fun. I try to pace myself so I don't eat it all at once.

Re: @juliehnguyen YES! It's a different every month. My bf go...

Ooo this subscription sounds so awesome @Lazybeautybeast! I love trying snacks from different places. I feel like I spend way too much time at the snack section of World Market. 😂😂 and your boyfriend is so sweet! He really knows the way to a girls heart! 

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

Sorry I’m late with this post but here’s my Play from this month! I’m actually really happy with it. The only thing I don’t care for is the perfume. Loved both my ipsy and Play this month! What a great way to end the year 🤗 Hope next month has good bags too!

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

OMG!  We got the same box, @Mcakes!  I don't care for the Tom Ford perfume, either, lol! ❤️

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

I got the same one and have to say I've sampled everything over the holiday and been very pleased. Also love the cute, Art Deco-inspired bag. Using it to organize lipsticks in my travel case. Also not a fan of the perfume, but I have so many perfume samples, it just doesn't bother me. Hoping this is a sign of even better boxes to come!

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

This was my box, too, and definitely one of my all-time favorite Play boxes! Exception being the perfume, but 5/6 items I love is definitely a win.

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

They did very well this month!  I also like the champagne-colored bag.

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

This was my box too @Mcakes, and it’s one of my favorites that I’ve gotten! 🙂

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

I love your picture taking skills @Mcakes Heart and it looks like you got a good selection of items there, too  Smiley Wink  

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

You always have something nice to say @ZombieMetroAnt ❤️ Thank you! I love everything, especially the bag lol. Glam Straight 😄 plus the art deco design, swoon!

Finally!! I have mixed feelings about this box. I've been looking forward to trying the tarte mascara and I got the color I wanted in the Pretty Vulgar (My Lips are Sealed) but it's much more shimmery then I realized. The formula is nice and wearable though... Not sure how I feel about it yet. I thought I would get the color correction palettebut I got the bronzer instead. I rarely use them and have quite a few so Imight gift or trade it. The blush and brush seem nice...I just havemore blushes then I know what to do with this right now. I guess even if I only end up liking the mascara, the boxes is worth it, right?

Re: Finally!! I have mixed feelings about this box. I've been...

@Lazybeautybeast 

Glad you finally got your box!🤗

I’m the opposite I wish I got the bronzer palette instead of the color correcting palette(because I never use them)  oh well 😔 

 

Re: Finally!! I have mixed feelings about this box. I've been...

That bronzer is sooo pretty, though - Have you tried it?   @Lazybeautybeast

Not yet @Tamara76. I'm going to swatch it and try it out a few times. I'm honestly not use to using bronzers so it might be a good time to refresh my skills.

Re: Not yet @Tamara76. I'm going to swatch it and try it out...

@Lazybeautybeast I am pretty pale, so I like to use bronzers for contouring - I use an angled brush and do the "3" shape around the sides of my face and my cheekbones.  Then I layer on my blush and highlighter and I'm good to go!   Good luck! ❤️

Re: Finally!! I have mixed feelings about this box. I've been...

@Lazybeautybeast Glad you got your box!

 

I completely understand your reaction.  Not sure if you would agree but it feels like this month was thrown together last minute.  Perhaps it's because we are in the holiday season that more was expected?

 

Lackluster and uninspiring are the words that immediately come to mind even if the overall value (or the value of the few items we might like) are technically the price of the box..... 

I agree. The theme didn't really match the box in my opin...

I agree. The theme didn't really match the box in my opinion. I mean the lip and the mascara I guess but everything else not really. January is looking good though. Maybe they were more concerned about the LE box mess.

Re: Finally!! I have mixed feelings about this box. I've been...

I agree! I think the last few boxes were such highs this is a bit of a let down - luckily January is looking good so far
