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:

Re: Another November BoxyCharm Spoiler

I'm definitely in the minority when I say I actually preferred getting a face product this month rather than eyeshadow. But I am in love with the eyebrow pencil we received from winky luxe a few months ago so I'll keep an open mind!

Re: Another November BoxyCharm Spoiler

I hope I get off the waiting list!

Re: Another November BoxyCharm Spoiler

I love the packaging and shades! Never heard of the brand before but I might sub to Boxycharm since I'm skipping my Ipsy November bag.

Re: Another November BoxyCharm Spoiler

😮☝🏼NO WAY!  I’ve been saving up to buy this palette 👍🏼 Awesome @ElleElleG👏🏼 thank you 😁

Re: Another November BoxyCharm Spoiler

I've actually never heard of this brand before @ZombieMetroAnt ... off to research

Re: Another November BoxyCharm Spoiler

I don’t think I’m familiar with this brand either,  but I’m excited to try it out! 

Re: Another November BoxyCharm Spoiler

@ElleElleG  Their lipsticks (the non-matte ones) are very smooth..

Re: Another November BoxyCharm Spoiler

@ElleElleG I second this!   I love Winky Lux Lip Pill Matte Lipsticks and they do fun clear lipsticks with flowers in them!  Smiley Happy

October Art of Organics! I'm several months behind in my sampling and typically I'm pretty dedicated to trying things in the order they arrived (you know, so no product gets left behind) but the Vitamin C serum will likely skip the line.

Also, not a subscription, but while I'm posting pictures here's one of my newly adopted cat Wednesday!

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

Nice box, but I am entranced by Wednesday!   She is gorgeous!!!! <3   @MarciaBrady

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

@Tamara76 I'll admit, I'm  entranced, too. LOL. I wasn't even seriously considering adopting a cat at this time, but I saw a picture of her and became pretty much obsessed. Like an insane, crazy cat lady, I drove 3 1/2 hours to adopt her. It was a nice drive. Went through lots of really picturesque rural areas in Wisconsin. And, bonus, the leaves were starting to change color!

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

@MarciaBrady I was literally coming to this sub to ask if anyone could chime in on the Art of Organics box! I found out about them on Instagram and I like what they're all about. The sub's price is what is setting me off since I'm used to the lower priced subscriptions. would you recommend this box?


and your new cat is so cute!!

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

@mella900 Thanks! I enthusiastically recommend Art of Organics. Yes, the monthly price is a bit shocking compared to many other completely amazing boxes on the market, but the value is definitely there. The products in this month's box list for nearly $100 (combined), which is not unusual, if you can believe it. Plus, the brands featured in the AofO boxes aren't usually found in others, and they tend to be from highly-regarded natural brands. And they're great products. I've never been disappointed.

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

😲💕 OMG!!  Wednesday is absolutely gorgeous @MarciaBrady ❤️  And what a perfect name, also...thanks for sharing her picture with us 😍

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

Thanks! She's a sweetie. Still very shy, but getting more outgoing every day!

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

I chose the curated Birchbox, even though it has a black eyeliner, just to try the shampoo and conditioner. At least it's my favorite black eyeliner!1011171703-1.jpg

Ipsy October

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

Looks like a great box @Moni87! I'm a big fan of Bye Bye Pores.

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

Yes, I like it. I am excited to try bye bye pores!!!

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

BoxyCharm never disappoints!!

I was hoping to get the Becca powder highlight instead of the liquid. The Tarte is in shade Delish


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

Can't wait to see the Tarte on you @HookedOnBeauty2!!
