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)

@eshoe September and October were fire!  I actually just signed up for the allure box last month based on the DE baby skin sample.  I love that stuff!  Although I just wanted the DE sample, I was pretty happy with the Tarte lashes and glue, and MAC lipstick, too!  All things I would've purchased on my own.  I can't wait for my October box -- mainly the Sunday Riley cleanser because I haven't tried it before, and the hourglass mascara.  


I think I will cancel November though.  I already have the lip crayon in Malibu and nothing excites me about too cool for school.

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

I was surprised at how wearable the Mac Lustering was, @itscarin! It looks bright but is pretty sheer. Not the kind of color I normally wear but I keep it in the kitchen for a quick sweep of color (I am constantly applying lip balm/gloss and this kinda fits it that category to me).


I’m pretty excited about November, but that’s just because I loooove masking! However the only traditional face mask they are including is one my skin cannot tolerate. Stocking stuffer😉

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

I have not @eshoe so I'm so excited to try it... Love our masks!!😄

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

She’s here! My first Glam Bag Plus 😍 Here’s what I got:


Eyeko- Skinny Liquid Eyeliner

Purlisse Beauty- Blue Lotus Seed Mud Mask + Exfoliant

Ciate London- Dewy Spritz Luminous Prime & Set Spray

Morphe- High Impact Highlighter in Extra

Tarte- Maneater Mascara

Smashbox- Cover Shot Eye Palette in Bold Glitter


Then here are some extras: Sol Dr Janeiro- Bum Bum Cream (I got this for resigning up with ipsy)

Marsk- Pigment in Mudcake (I’m pretty sure I redeemed this with my points)


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

Fabulous bag, @Mcakes!   I love the Purlisse!  Enjoy! <3

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

I got almost the same bag as you, but instead of the Ciate I got the lip balm (super grainy ugh!).


I have not tried the palette and will probably re-gift or put it for trade.

@darlyndar yes keep your eyes peeled for an email from ipsy 💖💖

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

@Mcakes How were you able to subscribe to this? I’ve been looking alllll over. Lol

@darlyndar I think I received an email a couple months ag...

@darlyndar I think I received an email a couple months ago, asking if I was interested in the glam bag plus, and I think you had to have an active account

Re: @darlyndar I think I received an email a couple months ag...

I see, @lmaster. I’ve been with Ipsy for 4 years now. I wonder if I got the email and didn’t notice. Lol. Oh well. The second it’s available, I’m subscribing. 

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


I've never given Ipsy much of a second glance, but that's a really nice bag! I am totally gaga over the palette, of course 😍😍😍😋

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

@RGbrown I’ve always been a fan of ipsy! But the Glam Bag Plus is a better choice for me right now because I tend to be more excited about using the full sizes. The sample sizes were just not getting used up.

you are so lucky you didn't get that balm to oil crap @Mc...

you are so lucky you didn't get that balm to oil crap @Mcakes it was terrible, like cement, couldn't get it out of the tube hardly and the little amount I did get out,,,I hated everything about it! enjoy your awesome box!

RE: you are so lucky you didn't get that balm to oil crap @Mc...

Oh no @lmaster !! That’s a bummer you didn’t like that. It doesn’t sound like something I’d like either lol. Hopefully your next box is better!

Re: RE: you are so lucky you didn't get that balm to oil crap @Mc...

@Mcakes yeah I was disappointed, but the rest of the box made up for it!

My K-BEAUTY Play Smarts box arrived yesterday.

My first impressions.

I understand where they were going with the bag but it's a miss for me.... I don't see myself getting much use out of it. If you want to try any of these products or you love these products, it's worth it. I'm on the fence. I haven't tried the Saturday Skin, belief eye cream, and the CC cream. I know I like the Glow Recipe mask and the Laneige lip mask. The belief moisture bomb is too heavy for me but I like to have it on hand during the winter just in case. For me, this is one of the better Smart boxes put out but it's not a must buy. It was barely worth the $20 price tag for me. (@CookieGirl1 here is my review)🙂 





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

This looks so good to me, @Lazybeautybeast!  I seriously love all these products! <3


I am so sorry you didn't love this box! Smiley Sad

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

I'm sorry you didn't love it @Lazybeautybeast - Would love your thoughts when you try the cc cream though I've been curious about that one for a while !

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

@Lazybeautybeast I'm sorry that the box was a bit of a dud for you.  I didn't end up ordering it and in retrospect I'm glad that I didn't.  I already own the full size of the lip mask and the Saturday Skin gel (which I do like, at least), the Erborean cream isn't very interesting to me, and I prefer the Aqua Bomb over the Moisture Bomb as well.  I've wanted to try the GlowRecipe mask but that alone wouldn't really justify the cost of the box for me.  Hopefully you'll enjoy the products that you haven't tried, at least!  *Thx for tagging me Smiley Happy

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

Thanks for posting this. I ordered this and should be receiving it today. I mainly purchased it for the Laneige lip mask and watermelon overnight mask because I have been really wanting to try them... The Saturday Skin and CC Cream look interesting to try out. I already own the Belif moisturizer and a deluxe size of the eye cream. I have really enjoyed using them and they have both lasted me a long time since you need so little! Not sure If the $20 price tag is justified since the value is only said to be $35. The items do look tiny. Maybe $15-$18 would have been a better price. Also the bag is pretty hideous and I don’t see myself using it.. will probably give to my 2 year old daughter lol.
