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.

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

@mezzotown88 I'm curious to see what happens once that little area gets full...like will the excess product come out the tube or??  If I play around with it tomorrow I may just find out, LOL

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

Interesting!  I love Pretty Vulgar, but have never tried their liquid lippies - Is it just too metallic or shimmery or what?   @ElleElleG

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

10000% metallic!  If I remember to, I'll post some photos tomorrow @Tamara76

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

Thanks, lovely!  A metallic lip may look really good with the amazing looks you create with your Pat McGrath palettes, though - especially for the holidays... Just a thought! ❤️ ❤️ ❤️   @ElleElleG

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

Now you're giving me ideas @Tamara76 🤔🤔

I totally agree. It might be pretty in an ombre lip (which I've never done but I've wanted to try) but alone is a little much for me.

Re: I totally agree. It might be pretty in an ombre lip (whic...

Ombres are fun @Lazybeautybeast  Also if the metallic is too much you may want to put this in the center of the lip first and put the deeper shade on the afterwards to ombre/tune it down a bit.

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

Here’s my Ipsy! I always prefer brushes and skincare in my bags but that Pixi eyeshadow duo is actually really pretty! I think I’ll be using it more than I thought I would! Now I just need my Play! And Allure to come. Lol

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

@darlyndar Nice bag!  Dragon's Blood Pumpkin Serum is probably one of the most interesting sounding products I've seen in a while... 😉 

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

@Tamara76 I actually really like it! It’s basically a hylauronic acid serum with some other goodies in it. I’ve been using it everyday and I really enjoy it! It does have a more musky, manly scent to it but doesn’t last on the skin at all. 

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

Ohhhh - Thanks for the review!  I'll have to check it out!!! ❤️   @darlyndar

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

 ooh I like the eyeshadow too! looks pretty! and of course cute bag!

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

Nice! I've always been really curious about N*p + Fab! Also why is N*P a bad word lol???

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

@Kim888 ~ IKR? We've been contemplating it, just downright funny 😂

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

@darlyndar~ That duo sure is cute, ha ha!. I'm super curious about that Plumping Serum though, and would love to know what you think of it if you decide to try it out 😄

My Ipsy is late 😢 I love yours though, I would totally wear that eyeshadow!

@GG84~ Aww, sorry yours is late. Hope you get it soon!

Boxycharm Limited Edition came in yesterday! I'm excited...

Boxycharm Limited Edition came in yesterday! I'm excited because I was really hoping for the tarte Miracles of the Amazon palette! My BareMinerals lip gloss in the color Popular and the Makeup Geek eye liner in Plumeria. I think it will go nicely with tarte palette. I'm excited to started using the products tomorrow.

Re: Boxycharm Limited Edition came in yesterday! I'm excited...

Ohhhh - I Love it, @Lazybeautybeast!!!!   What's your favorite thing in the box?  ❤️

It has to be the tarte palette but I'm a tarte-holic. @Tamara76. However, the texture seems different (harder and drier) then all of the other tarte palettes I have. I actually really liked how easily the eye liner blended. I don't usually use eye liner because I have hooded eyes and I never get the results I want but it was really nice especially with the purples in the palette. I haven't used the brush, the Cover FX drops, or mascara. The vitamin C serum is nice too. I'm not big on gloss fan so the BareMinerals is nice but not my favorite. I feel like I've tried the Becca primer so many times. I packed this one away because I still have one I got in Play! a few months back that I'm finishing up.

Re: It has to be the tarte palette but I'm a tarte-holic. @Ta...

@Lazybeautybeast Ohhhh - Cover FX drops are really nice when mixed with your foundation!  I think my daughter has that Tarte palette - I'll have to ask her what she thinks of the formula. 🙂   Enjoy!!! ❤️
