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.

Re: how do I see what am getting in my box

I guess you are referencing the Sephora Play! subscription @coco34 !   When I had that subscription I typically did a Google search for my particular box/bag to see if someone had posted spoilers.  I also used Instagram but that often requires a little more digging.

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

Almost forgot about doing this, thanks for the reminder @Tamara76.  (Apologies for the lighting!)

The formula is pretty comfortable. The metallic is a beast though. No amount of blotting tones this baby down. And total removal required some micellar water.

I meant to only add this to the center of the lip but went a little wider in my application than intended.  Far more wearable when combined with another lipstick.

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

Honestly, I HATED this month's Boxycharm.  The only redeeming factor was the mascara and I really wasn't even excited about that.  I'm pretty much donating the rest of it to Goodwill...

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

That looks so pretty on you @ElleElleG! I got the pretty vulgar in my boxycharm as well, so I’m glad to know in advance how metallic it truly is!

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

Thanks @PrettyPaint !!  Happy to be a lipstick guinea pig, LOL

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

Ohhhhh - Both of these looks are lovely, @ElleElleG!!!!   I understand about wanting to feel comfortable, though... ❤️

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

Thanks @Tamara76 💕

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

Does anyone here subscribe to allure box? This would be my first month. They charged the card on 2nd Dec but I have no email, no order number. How do I find out more info about it and also find out whether it has shipped or not?

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

This will be my first box. I ordered on the 8th and got my shipment email yesterday

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

Allure occasionally sends out email notifications when they ship their beauty box but they don’t do it consistently. I just received an email notification on Friday that they are sending this month’s box out. If you’re interested in knowing what’s in this month’s and January’s boxes, the full spoilers are up on the My Subscriptiom Addiction already.

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

Allure doesn't send shipping notices, and the box just shows up. I got my December box a couple days ago. @naturalooks15

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

Thanks @txcatx Does it come with regular USPS? Hope @PrettyPaint and I will get it soon too.

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

@naturalooks15 Yes, USPS. Hope you get your box soon; this month was a good one!

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

@naturalooks15 I just subscribed in December as well and also haven’t received shipping info. 

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

My December Ipsy ❄️ 1. Pūrlisse sheet masks in Coconut + Rice, and Green Tea + Ginger. 2. Luxie Precision Shader Brush 3. Smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick in shade Legendary. 4. TrèStique Brow Pencil in Espresso. 5. Tony Moly The Green Tea Watery Cream.

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

@cindyvonlovely Ooh I like your ipsy bag too!

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

@cindyvonlovely  That lipstick is perfection for the holiday season (or anytime).  Nice selection, hope you enjoy!

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

agreed @ElleElleG. that red is stunning!

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

That’s what I was thinking too! It’s the perfect red for the holiday season @ElleElleG

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

You received amazing things this month! And girl....I’ve been using that brush everyday since I got it! It works sooooo well at packing on shadow to my outer v! I love the point that it comes to. I want another one! Lol

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

I will for sure be trying that technique with the brush. Thanks for the tip @darlyndar
