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:

@sonnydee  Thanks for sharing your Ipsy experiences with me! Ipsy shopper isn’t available in Canada, but glad to hear they’re doing something right! I guess I will hold tight for a little bit longer 😆

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

January Boxycharm!

Tatcha Luminous Dewy Skin Mask x2

OFRA Liquid Lipstick in Miami Fever

Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Volume III

Billion Dollar Brows Universal Brow Pencil

Briogeo Rosarco Milk Leave In Conditioner





I am thoroughly annoyed with the spoiler showed a bullet lipstick so I was hoping for the Bite lippie. I don't do mattes at all, and the rusty orange shade is nowhere near my ballpark. I think I already have a mini of the Briogeo lined up to try, but am looking forward to it either way. Not thrilled with the Tarte palette (but I knew I didn't like any of the options there, so I was prepared for that) and "universal" brow pencils never are, so all in all, I'm a bit underwhelmed this month. 


Has anyone tried the Tatcha masks before? Any info on scent before I crack open a ridiculously expensive mask just to toss it out would be greatly appreciated 😋

I feel like aside from the masks this was a dud box for J...

I feel like aside from the masks this was a dud box for January @RGbrown 👎

Re: I feel like aside from the masks this was a dud box for J...


Agreed, I've definitely seen better. The value is there, but it's just not for me this month. Here's hoping for a better February! 

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

Ohhhhh this looks like a great box @RGbrown

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

Thanks @ElleElleG! Not my favorite box, but I knew going into this that there would be dud months. Smiley Tongue 



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

A good outlook to have @RGbrown ; sadly they can't all knock your socks off.  As long as they manage to include items you look forward to/will use it's more than worth it.

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

@RGbrown The Tatcha masks look intriguing and from @itsfi’s comments below, it seems very promising 😯 🙌🏻

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


I'm definitely curious to give the Tatcha a try (and that's no small feat, considering I hate most sheet masks lol)! Smiley Very Happy

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

I got this exact same box!!  I'm sorry you didn't like it, I'm actually really excited about it.  I generally really love Tarte and I have a million matte palettes, so I was pretty happy with that, I love Ofra lippies (although I was really hoping for the Bite bullet too, so I totally feel you there!!), and I tried the color on and it really wasn't as ORANGE as I thought it would be, it muted down to a totally wearable color.  I'm pretty excited about the Tatcha mask, the stuff I have tried from the brand, I've generally liked, but like most people, some of it, not enough to pay full price for again (the Dewey Skin Mist, it just wasn't for me).  I'm personally a pretty hardcore pomade girl, but I've been considering dabbling in brow pencils for a while now, so I'm glad I can try it out at least, and the color actually looks like it MIGHT work for me (probably going to regret that statement later lol), and I love leave-in conditioners generally and Briogeo is a really good brand and again, the products I HAVE tried, I really liked.  I would just say give some of the stuff a chance, unless you KNOW it's just a no-go.  Trying new stuff is part of the fun!!

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


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😊
