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:

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

@Tamara76, that Herbivore will last a lifetime! I have put some serious effort into finishing mine and it just won’t go away😂 love it for evening masking 💗

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

Believe it or not, this is the first time I've tried their lip products.... and I am in love! <3  @eshoe

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

My October Ipsy arrived. Have been “unsure” about this one. My spoilers did not thrill me, but now that it’s here, I might be changing my mind. The bag is sooo pretty. I always love the bags, though. Was worried that the Tarte Shape Tape wouldn’t match my skin tone, but it seems like it will be fine, which I am so happy about cause I have always wanted to try it! The Naked loose powder eyeshadow is going to be on display tonight! Maybe a post later on the What I Am Wearing today thread. The brush is soooo soft the perfect size for baking and highlighting. But, I think it’s time to update my beauty preferences to not need bronzers for a while. I have more than an Indian brown girl!! Luckily this one looks like it will double nicely as a shadow color!

I have been wanting to try Ipsy! Is it worth it?

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

I just realized I totally forgot to post my daughter's September Scentbird box:


This month she chose Aquolina Pink sugar Sensual, which she really likes! <3 

PM me if you'd like to find out more about Scentbird <3

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

I think scentbird sounds interesting but I'm so picky with scents that I don't think it would be worth it.

Also.... that cotton candy that the bottle is sitting on?

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

Yes - lol!  Watermelon/kiwi flavored cotton candy! <3


You actually get to choose your scent every month or now they offer a choice of a beauty product instead.  If you have been wanting to try certain scents, it's a good way to check them out. <3



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

Yum! lol. Your photo staging skills are amazing! @Tamara76

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

Thanks!  The perfume smells like cotton candy, so I thought "why not?" and got a big bucket of it on Amazon.  Smiley Wink   @Lazybeautybeast

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

You think of everything @Tamara76! 😉

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

Glam bag plus, overall I am very happy with the box. The one item I already tried and don’t like is the Pure Nicoleta Melt.  It's a one ingredient product that is a hard balm that "melts."  I had to use two hands hard to squeeze some product out. The balm part is fine but when it melts it's just greasy and did not absorb into my skin at all, no bueno.









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

Honestly the plus bag blew the latest Ipsy regular ones out of the water, at least for my stuff. I got a full sized maneater mascara from tarte, the moisture balm, the morphe highlighter, a pur-lisse mud mask, a smash box glitter jewel-toned shadow palette, and a ciate “dewy finish” facial spray that’s supposed to function as a hydrator, makeup spray, and a slight dewy finish. It’s also scented. Haven’t worn the shadow yet, but the swatches were pretty. Definitely will need to use glitter glue I think. I’ve had good luck using super small amounts of the balm at a time- letting it warm up on skin as I massage it in and adding as necessary. It’s also done good things for my hands and cuticles, and I’m pretty hard on my hands and could use the help. The spray I’m not sold on yet as a makeup spray, but it is a nice skin pickup during the day. I don’t quite get the dewy thing. The highlighter is super smooth and not glittery or chunky at all. I like that it can be subtle and more of just a warming glow depending on how you put it on. Face looks nice and more even skin tones two days out from using the mask. The bag holds way more than the usual Ipsy bags and is lovely. I’ve been feeling like the quality of their regular bags have gotten spotty on the brands and products. I’ve been getting them since pretty close to when they started, and the brands have definitely changed. I don’t get a decent amount of “good” brands it feels like anymore. I’ve also been researching the ones that come lately, and several are drugstore brands in the UK. So I switched to the plus to see if it’d be better, and also have gotten the Sephora monthlies for a few months. I feel like the Sephora one is great on quality, but not nearly as diverse in terms of type of product that shows up.

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

Yay!!!!   So happy it arrived so fast, @darkiceis!  I can't wait for mine!


So sorry about the broken highlighter, though, and sorry to hear the balm didn't work for you!  I hope you get a replacement for the highlighter quickly!

oh nooo! @darkiceis. Email ipsy, they will send out a new...

oh nooo! @darkiceis. Email ipsy, they will send out a new one, at least they always have when I got a broken mini sample. I hope it's the same with the full size. I'm a lil scared to get this (full size products of things i dont like, cant use)but I like it so I don't know🤔. Hope you enjoy the upcoming months more! Thanks for sharing!
