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:

Ooh I like the brush!

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

@mezzotown88 Me too! I actually got a wry similar crown brush in my Ipsy last month but this one is much softer! It’s actually a really great blush brush.

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

@darlyndar glad to know the brush is soft..  I just checked my tracking says it's been delivered... strange there wasn't anything on my front door when I came home from work.. it must have been delivered after I came home( that' strange too I didn't hear anyone ring my doorbell)

anyway I'm going go check my front door right now and see if I received my Boxycharm! Will post later!

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

Your box looks great @darlyndar. I really hope I get the pretty vulgar lip!

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

I got the same one! Love it!

Awesome! My tracking hasn't updated since Saturday. 😟 I'...

Awesome! My tracking hasn't updated since Saturday. 😟 I'm getting impatient. It says it will be here Thursday.

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

Oh, very nice @darlyndar!  I love the background - you have great picture taking skills Smiley Wink   

I'm excited to get mine!  It's supposed to arrive tomorrow.

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

Mine is supposed to come tomorrow as well! And nice I’m excited to try the blush as well!

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


macy.PNGI finally got my chance to join Macy's beauty box :D...and I just wanted to know what people thought of it. Do many here have this subscription? What can I expect with this box? Is the value worth signing up? Thanks!

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

@KemoLove I think its a matter of personal opinion.  I subscribe to this and I like it.  The Macys cash in the Nov bag was $10 so that brings the monthly sub to only $5.  


This is the Dec bag, not sure if you're getting this one - 


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

OMG, Z!!!!   That bag is gorgeous!!!   Can't wait to see your pics when it comes in! @ZombieMetroAnt

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

@ZombieMetroAnt~ Thanks for the response and pic! The Macy's cash is definitely enticing, ha ha. Can you stack them?? I wish I was getting December's bag 😞 I think my invitational slot didn't open up until juuuuust past this month's deadline. Looking forward to January's box! Hope it's a good one 😛

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

For those who are looking for a more expansive version of this, /r/beautyboxes on reddit is your go to place. ALLLLLLLLLL the makeup boxes unboxed and reviewed. It's like heaven on earth.

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

I can attest to this, as I jump back and forth from here to Reddit. I'm definitely so impatient with my subscription boxes that I'm always clamoring for spoilers, ha ha

Re: *Possible* BoxyCharm January Spoiler

Thanks for posting! I’m excited for this - I’ve heard some good things and I really like getting primers. 

Re: *Possible* BoxyCharm January Spoiler

@ElleElleG I’ve never heard of this primer before.. does anyone know if it’s good?

Re: *Possible* BoxyCharm January Spoiler

@mezzotown88 @ElleElleG I've used this primer before. It's luminizing without being greasy, and it actually controls oil. It's definitely worth trying!

Re: *Possible* BoxyCharm January Spoiler

@ElleElleG@MachynesSister I see thanks...

Re: *Possible* BoxyCharm January Spoiler

new to me @mezzotown88 !!  Luminizing primers make me a little nervous so I wonder if this will be a variant item for combo/oily people (though they did give everyone that CoverFX...)

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

All my subscriptions have been sent out! Can’t wait to get them all! I subscribe to Play!, Boxycharm, Ipsy and Allure. I’ll post everything as they come in. Allure keeps getting better and better! I highly recommend it if you’ve been thinking about it!
