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

I thought it was just me. My husband said it look house only makeup. @ElleElleG

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

@ElleElleG Same thing happened to me when I opened the lipgloss...

it is a little bit unusual for me too because I never had that problem with my other lipglosses or liquid lipsticks hmm🤔

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! <3 <3 <3   @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.

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

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...

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! <3

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 

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... Smiley Wink 

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!!! <3   @darlyndar
