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.

Ipsy October bag disaster long story short😉 my ipsy bag was forwarded to a unknown place for no reason, then waiting a week for it to make its way back to me....to find it's the wrong bag (pic #1.) while waiting I was sent another replacement bag, was told I would be given the exact same items. cause I love slmissglam & really wanted the wander mask (pic #2.) the bag I bought from ebay, I had a feeling I was going to be disappointed again. (pic 3). the bag I was supposed to get originally but didn't (pic 4). pic 5 is my minis bag-no issues arrived on time. the stuff I circled in green was the add-ons. they sent me Mac oh-baby instead of love child & ran out so they refunded me that when they shipped out by not-replacement. I also bought the tarte in medium & they sent me light-med. by mistake. the 2 items that are circled in yellow were not even offered in October. I found that insulting that they threw in whatever, if they ran out they could've just told me. & refunded me. I didn't swatch some stuff because I'm giving that away. I wanted the iby midnight sky eyeshadow anyways so I'm glad I went with my gut & went ahead & bought a bag off eBay. I'm showing all this as a cautionary tell: maybe it has something to do with them offering the plus bag because this has never happened before. I'm really gonna watch my bags even more carefully & open them right away. hope this ain't to confusing!

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

Sorry to hear it took so much trouble to get the correct October Ipsy bag @sonnydee Hopefully they'll fix their processes soon so it doesn't happen again :/

I hope so too @Guessgal. I subscribed for a 3rd bag for my other mini & I'm not supposed to get that bag until Nov. 30. I think if I was a new subscriber & this happened, it would definitely leave a bad taste in my mouth for sure. Not sure what is going on with them. 😒

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

Wow!  What a nightmare!  Hopefully some of the samples will work out for you, @sonnydee!

I hope so, especially the ones I had to hunt down Mac Lovechild & the wander beauty mask! @Tamara76

@lmaster it came out of nowhere. Hope this month is ok. I now have 3 bags

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

Crossing posting. I didn't see a Black Friday/ Cyber Monday 2018 deals thread yet.

Boxycharm will have three curated, one time purchase boxes for Black Friday (or Cyber Monday... it didn't really say on the site). If you are a boxycharm subscriber, these ARE repeat products. I think they would make good gifts, or you if haven't subscribed, its a good way to test it, or if you need a back up of your favorites, these are good deals. 

 

You can sign up on the boxycharm site to be notified when they go live.

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

nice - this would deff be a great gift - I like the transparency of this over last year's holiday mystery box which wasn't amazing 

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

Agreed @Kim888 !!!  Last year was a hot mess of people fighting to grab one and then many were displeased with the product selection!

Subscription Central (Spoilers, Unboxings, and More)

Bummer on a disastrous October ipsy. On the one hand it's great that let you select one of your items, on the other hand it sounds half-ą$$ed 🤷🏾‍♀️

it was bad enough for me to straight out ask for a refund...

it was bad enough for me to straight out ask for a refund & they came back with letting me choose. No mention of my request for a refund or anything. I just hope it was once in blue moon type situation. I'll post pics probably tomorrow. @ElleElleG.

Re: it was bad enough for me to straight out ask for a refund...

Of course they ignored it, companies get anxious when they see that "r-word" @sonnydee.  Hopefully it was the first AND last time

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

And my last box for “October” just arrived! It’s the Beauteque beauty box. One of my absolute favs month-after-month! I am sooo happy with all of the items, but will be gifting the headband to my daughter as a stocking stuffer. She will love it!
