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)

Oh no, @Kim888!  So sorry about the broken items! Smiley Sad

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

I’m disappointed that I didn’t get the REN which I would have used. I refuse to use a peel off mask, and glitter is just absurd. 


I have found Allure great to deal with box problems. When I had a missing item once, they sent me a whole new box. Definitely give them a call. 

@Kim888, I hate your items arrived broken ☹ This is only...

@Kim888, I hate your items arrived broken ☹ This is only my 2nd or 3rd box with Allure, so I was quite pleased.

Re: @Kim888, I hate your items arrived broken ☹ This is only...

@Luvstravel Thanks - it’s actually only my third box as well I’ve just seemed to have a problem every month. I was able to repress both so that’s better than nothing  but I sent an email requesting a refund 🤷🏻‍♀️

Re: @Kim888, I hate your items arrived broken ☹ This is only...

@Kim888  That Ofra highlighter is beyond repair! I would definitely be requesting a refund also. 

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

Yay for you!!! I opened my box to see if I got the REN, but ended up with the bliss peel-off mask @Kim888. I haven’t looked at the palette, I am going to send the entire box to a friend😆 Excited for January’s box though! Haven’t seen any spoilers yet for Feb🤔

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

@eshoe My sub addiction has them up! I was not very impressed but it may be because Jan looks so good haha 

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

Thank you @Kim888! Checking it out now.

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

@sonnydee Those holiday themed Creme shop masks look so cute. They probably smell nice, too?! <333

I have only used the oh deer! it smelled citrusy maybe a hint of lemon. @PenelopeBT

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

I almost forgot!   I bought a one-off special edition Grinch Themed Bark Box for my pups on Amazon for Christmas:


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

So cute @Tamara76 💗

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

Thanks, @Mcakes!  For some reason, though, I cannot get either dog to keep Max's antler on long enough to take a pic... Smiley Wink

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

And here are my other December subs, minus Scentbird (still waiting on that one)!


1. Emma and Chloe:


This subscription is new to me, but it's been around for a couple of years.  You basically get a piece of French designer jewelry each month for $24 to $35 based on your preferences.  This month, we actually got 2 pieces and I am super excited about them!

1. L'Atelier Emma & Chloe x Pauline Clea Rhea Bangle
2. L'Atelier Emma & Chloe x Pauline Clea Athena Ring

***DM me if you want to get your first box for free!  (You will pay $10 for shipping)

2. Birchbox:




1. R + Co. High Dive Moisture and Shine Creme: I’ve used this for a few days and it does a great job of smoothing my hair and has made it look shinier!

2. Whish Beauty Vanilla Lip Scrub: This was my choice for this month and it does not disappoint! This is an awesome scrub and it smells sooo good!  It is a creamier scrub, though, so it won't do heavy duty exfoliating

3. Blink Brow Bar Brow Definer in Chai

4. Lavanila Labs The Healthy Fragrance Vanilla Grapefruit Eau de Parfum: It smells lovely!

5. My Project Beauty Hairgurt Smoothing Yogurt Banana Hair Masque: I love banana scented products! This smells sooooo good and left my hair feeling healthier and moisturized.

Overall, I'm really happy with this box!

***DM me for a link and code to receive a free MAC Lipstick with your new subscription!

3.  Sephora Play:



1. Too Faced Primed & Peachy Cooling Matte Perfecting Primer: Not really a fan - It made my makeup slip😢.

2. Wander Beauty Glowtion in Celestial: I’ve been mixing this with my foundation and I really like it!💗.

3. Briogeo Don’t Despair, Repair Mask: Love this stuff!

4. Sephora Collection Rouge Gel Lip Liner in Nothin’ but Nude: This is really tiny, but very nice!💗.

5. Fresh Beauty Sugar Advanced Therapy Lip Treatment in Dream: I’m not a huge fan, but my daughter loves this stuff so this went to her.
6.  Bonus Sephora Collection Mini Lippie - I've already got like 12 of these, so this is going to a friend...
Overall, it’s a great box, but the only thing new to me is the Wander product.I wish they'd start including newer products.




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

Here is my December Ipsy Glambag Plus - I am super happy with this one, except for the Klorane - I just wish they weren't doing away with the bags in Glambag Plus!:


The value of this bag is insane for only $25!!!!

1. 111Skin vitamin C Brightening Booster ($180!!!!😱): Omg this is amazing serum, but I didn’t want to love it because $$$!

2. Smith & Cult Book of Eyes Palette in Interlewd ($44): Sooo pretty!  I'm really glad I got this color combo!

3. Estee Lauder Pure Color Love Lipstick in Strapless ($22.50): I love this color and formula so much!

4. Farah Brushes Gold Face Brush Trio ($40): These brushes are gorgeous and I needed more face brushes - Perfect timing!

5. Klorane Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk ($20): O.K. I am not a fan of this dry shampoo, but my daughter is, so this went straight to her!

6. Bag: OMG! Too cute! I am way too excited about this!  And sad about them discontinuing bags for Glambag Plus

***DM me for a subscription link if you're interested! I think you have to sub to regular Ipsy before upgrading to Glambag Plus, but it's worth it! 💙.


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

I am totally obsessed with my Winter Box of Style!


1. Eddie Borgo Soho Watch ($118): This watch is absolutely gorgeous.
