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:

I already know most of this is a no-go for me Smiley Tongue But I do sincerely hope it all works out for you...have fun playing! Smiley Happy

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

@RGbrown sorry you didn’t end up getting the lippie you wanted :-( - I totally agree those universal brown pencils are never universal but hopefully you’ll like the briogeo that’s one of my fave hair products! I’ve tried that mask as well! I think from what I remember I liked it but not enough to pay the full price again - but I would definitely use them if I had them!

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


I never get the lippie I want, so I'm used to it by now 🤣 Good to know about the Briogeo...I've been worried for so many years that things like it would be too heavy for my fine hair, but the more I experiment with new stuff, the more I realize that just isn't true. I know lots of folks like it, so I'm excited to finally give it a try! 

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

That sheet mask alone made me want to try this box @RGbrown! @@itsfi has used that mask before, I wish I remembered more about her thoughts on it, sorry!

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


Sorry for what? You have summoned the masking maven @itsfi, which is way more than I thought to do 😂 So thank you!


I can't handle strong/heavy scents, especially florals, and I find sometimes the higher end prestige brands are more prone to use those than the cheaper ones. I really hate to waste one of these if it turns out I hate the scent. 



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

@RGbrown @eshoe, hahahaha! Tatcha has 2 different sheet masks, the one included in the sub box which is geared towards brightening and radiance and one geared towards hydration. I’m more familiar with the one for hydration but have used the one in the box once; to me, it has an herbal scent to it. If you are sensitive to scent it might not be one for you. I think of the one in the sub box as the sheet mask version of the Tatcha Dewy Skin Mist.  Hope that helps.

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


Ooohhh, thanks so much! Herbal scents are (generally) ok with me, so I'll put these in my keep box and try one sometime soon. I really appreciate the intel! ✨

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

Thank you so much @itsfi😊

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

Facetory arrived in record time this month, the contents look fantastic, too; quite a few new brands to me which means lots of potential new 💗’s!B7AE8794-F85A-4860-81E4-7D3EA938CDA9.jpeg



The color coordination🤩

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

This looks like an awesome box, @eshoe!  Enjoy! <3

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

@eshoe The Vita Cocktail and Ready Set masks caught my attention! If you decide to review them, please tag me 🤗

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

I just tagged you for the Banobagi Vita Cocktail, @Guessgal😉 In case you didn’t get it:


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

@eshoe  I just saw this - thank you for the tag! I saw that you rated it an A-/B+. Was it bc you didn’t like the jelly consistency of the part 2?


I was sucked in by the foil concept of the Vita Cocktail, but seeing your glowing review of the Omorovicza cleansing balm makes me think I should read up on that one instead! Smiley Wink

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

All of the Vita Cocktail masks have been rated well by those who’ve tried it @Guessgal@itsfi and @@lmaster have both given them very high marks. I enjoyed the mask, but I wouldn’t repurchase this particular one. If I like a mask but wouldn’t repurchase I think it’s an A-/B+. If I liked and would buy it again but not in a hurry to do so it’s an A. If I love it and immediately go online to purchase backups after trying it, it’s an A+ in my book😊


The Omorovicza Thermal Cleansing Balm is the best. 💖 it.

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

Ah, I see. It looks like I misinterpreted your rating scale. Thanks for the clarification! 🤗 @eshoe

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

@eshoeOoh I'd love to know about the Ready Set and the Moon Velvet.

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

I can’t wait to try the Moon Velvet, @Samtian-I will tag you when I do😉

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

This looks like a fantastic box!  I'm looking to drop my Ipsy subscription (just not things I'm excited to try anymore), but I know I'd miss the surprise in the mail every month.  This looks like a fun one to maybe switch over to!

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

If you enjoy using sheet masks @missjeanie, I recommend trying a sub (I’m partial to this one, but there are others out there). If anything, it helps me discover new brands from which I can branch off and find other masks to try😊

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

I'm just getting into sheet masks now.  In the past I've preferred wipe off masks, but have found that the few I've tried these last few weeks have been enjoyable.  I quickly checked out their website and it looks like they have a 4 mask option for around 7$ a month.  I'd need to ship them to a US address and pay 3$ to get them and that would work out to around 13.50 Canadian, versus the 21$ I was charged for Ipsy.  I find with Ipsy lately I'm using one sample size product and the rest just sit in a box where I don't get to them.  Id still get the fun of a subscription box this way, and hopefully I'd actually use the products!
