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: Subscription Central (Spoilers, Unboxings, and More)

@Lazybeautybeast  I saw that too. It does seem a bit odd. I think I read the kypris item was potentially different too. I don't really understand why this would benefit the brands, though. I thought it was to introduce people to their brands. I also noticed that the storybook palettes are made in prc whereas storybook palettes are usually  made in the u.s.

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

I know people saw that the ingredients were not in the same order on the recent kosas item

Subscription Central (Spoilers, Unboxings, and More)

my boxy premium is half and half. I wanted the dose of colors and the laneige, and definitely didn't want the natasha denona or the kvd. I'm on the fence about the avant, especially getting two moisturizers in the same box. but super jazzed about the bite and the confetti highlighter.

Yeah, I'm trying to do a local trade in Victoria BC for the DoC palette. I have a couple people willing to do a shipped trade in Canada, but would prefer a local trade.

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

@haleyvvvv  If you dont mind me asking, how come your not jazzed about the Natasha Denona?

@Anastasiya13 I feel like, especially with the safari and tropical palettes that there is some racist naming practices: nudist being a pink shade, using names of groups of people as shades in safari, etc. So I don't really do ND products (among others). It makes makeup less inclusive and that's not fun.

Re: @anastasiya13 I feel like, especially with the safari and...

@haleyvvvv  Thank you, I was curious, since of the quality of the items themselves. I think/feel a lot of companies do this to stand out, and think the backlash is good for business since people start talking about them.

@lmaster I think I saw it in a different packaging on the site like more of a tub, but maybe its something different. I'll probably try it out though, maybe it'll live up to the price tag.

Largely happy with my boxyluxe although I'll have to gift the kvd and fresh products.

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

@haleyvvvv, yeah, the Fresh Soy Cleanser doesn't agree with my skin, and it seems to be in everything.

right? I'd finally used up all of my samples from various kits and whatnot and now we get a full sized. I find it weirdly drying. but at least someone at work will hopefully like it. @curlychiquita

@Kim888 it’s still showing coming soon for me

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

I think this will be the first Luxe set I’m not jumping to get. I have the GA lipstick already from a point perk last year and I absolutely love the color but find it to be more of a high maintenance lipstick - need to prep lips and pick off dead skin as it shows any flakes. I do still recommend this though if you are able to grab in a set or for free.
