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:

Thanks, @sonnydee!! Definitely love that coffee scrub and am looking forward to these masks. They've been wonky for me since I moved in November. I don't mind things being delayed, especially with the pandemic and shipping to Canada, at least it arrived!!

Boxyluxe (June 2020, Oasis)Plus a Nars lippie I picked up from a boxy swap groupPlus a Nars lippie I picked up from a boxy swap group

Definitely think this still has the value, but this was kinda a miss for me. Or not really a miss, I'm just not vibing with it as much as my past luxe boxes.

I really like the pink swell bottle (my choice) and am looking forward to the honey mask, eye balm and primer. The lippies are pretty but the liners aren't the smoothest. I can sell/trade/gift the palette easily, thankfully. Blah to the face wash and overpriced brush sets. I'm just not very excited about anything.

@haleyvvvv yes I agree with you. I feel like this Luxe di...

@haleyvvvv yes I agree with you. I feel like this Luxe didn't have the wow factor. Everything is nice but there was nothing that really blew my mind.

Boxycharm Premium (Oasis, June 2020)20200627_171432~2.jpg


I feel like I keep winning Boxycharm. I'm largely happy with my box. Honestly though, I wanted the Glow Recipe avocado retinol sleeping mask, and that made the price of the box worth it for me. I chose the primer, but only because I wasn't sure what milk glow was in my last month's box and I didn't want a duplicate, but eye primer is an every day thing. I'm intrigued by the masks and I'll use the body wash. I was always going to trade the contour palette. I'm glad i got the overpriced baddington brushes instead of the overpriced billion dollars brows brushes, but I might also trade or lass these along. Its a 4/5 for me.

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

Oh I like your variation @haleyvvvv I will have to agree with you that the overpriced Battington brushes are better than the BDB ones. I am still holding on to my BDB brush, I may pass it along to one of my nieces if I don't use it in a month or so and honestly I haven't used my Battington ones either. The masks looks nice, I like those rubbery type of mask (if it is). My favorite masks are the Dr. Jart Rubber Masks. I'm glad that you got your eye primer and Glow Recipe mask. You actually received the pearl primer, I really wanted that one since I have drier eyelids. I think this months boxes are so much better than last month.

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

Thank you, @NinaNee!! I think the Grace and Stella are hydrogels, which is a type of mask I really like, but I also love the Dr. JART rubber masks!! I was hoping for the matte primer, but I think because my beauty quiz is for dry skin, they sent me the pearl one, even though my eye lids are little oily (but the quiz doesn't get that granular). But definitely as a whole this month is SO much better than last month!!

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

@haleyvvvv My profile is set at dry skin as well and I got the matte. My lids are on the drier side but where it creases (hooded eyes) can get a little oily during the summer. I'm excited to see next month!

Tribe Beauty Box (June 2020)20200627_170126~2.jpg


These boxes are fairly well curated which is nice. Unlike the past few, though, it just didn't work for me. The palette is nice, but Im never going to use those highlighter shades and that throws me off using the palette. I was so intrigued by the peel off mask, but it smells so strongly of rose just in the mailer that its probably going to not work for me for being too fragrant. The sheet mask stickers are cute but they're going to be a pain to use. The mascara and lippie look nice, but like don't make the box for me. Its just fine, but the past few have been such winners.

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

@haleyvvvv it's a bummer that this month isn't going to work out too much for you. Hopefully next month will be better.

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

Thank you, @NinaNee!!

Glossybox (June 2020, World of Beauty)20200627_170749.jpg


Overall, I'm fairly happy with this Glossybox. The mask looks good, but I'm unlikely to ever pay $18 for a sheet mask, so its nice to get one in this box. The eyeshadow looks nice, but not special, I already have a few open liquid eyeshadows in this shade. So I'm either going to hold off or pass it along. I don't love face wipes, but these are cute and smell nice, I'll add to my neverending pile of face wipes for travel, for when/if we start traveling again. I'm jazzed to try the Korres product, I've been wanting to try the prebiotic line for a while. The serum seems luxe, and this is a half size, so we'll see if it is super plumping and hydrating. Its nice that you get a fair bit of credit back for reviewing the products, so I will be getting a nice discount on the next limited edition box.


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

@haleyvvvv hoping the serum and Korres works out for you. The liquid eyeshadow looks pretty but like you said no point in opening it if you already have similar colors you're using. 

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

Thank you, @NinaNee!!

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

Jeni’s Ice Cream 🍨 Father’s Day Bundle. They contacted me the Friday prior to shipping to let me know one of the flavors was not available-but that my box would still arrive by Sunday, and I would receive an additional free pint for the mix-up🤩3FA62A22-57B1-40A9-B07B-5CDB86D03562.jpeg



It was packed in dry ice, which kept my daughter busy for a few hours😊, and the pints were completely solid. This was quite a treat and every single flavor was delicious! 

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

@eshoe Oh wow that is awesome!

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

@NinaNee it was soooo worth it! Being cooped up inside for months has started to wear on everyone, and this was such a much-needed & yummy diversion😊

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

Omg! That looks incredible! Who knew?! 💛💛💛 @eshoe 

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

@sister13 I know! Once I started looking around on the site I was thankful to have an excuse to splurge:D
