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: Subscription Central (Spoilers, Unboxings, and More)

It what might be the first time in history....i got my ipsy glam bag plus today. It usually comes like the 3rd week of the imagine my surprise. 1. I hate the color change (mailer),still do. I think its hideous. And now we have it even bigger. Its bigger than a 3 ring binder. So now, I really don't know what to do with it. (Other than throw it away. I have organized Christmas ornaments with them before🤔) I redeemed points for the generation clay so no matter what I had to get the bags & I was curious about the new pick 3. I didn't like my choices at all. But I went with something I *might* like due to the brand. What they picked. -murad, eye Stix, middle 3 is what i picked. I already got the ciate mascara before & I really like it so will be gifting this 2nd. & add-ons & points. I do like the actual bag of the smaller glam bag but redeemed more points for the pink g clay mask for August anyways.🤔so we shall see. August is corduroy bags.  I thought the drawstring would be bigger. But its pretty small...





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

Subscription Central (Spoilers, Unboxings, and More)

My July Premium. I like everything minus the bag, I've already given it away. I'm contemplating if I should keep the Morphe palette or not.

Subscription Central (Spoilers, Unboxings, and More)

My July Boxycharm base box. I only like 2 products, lash serum and color switch. I'm sensitive to coconut and have only been able to use one product that has coconut and it's ABH Dewy. I'm not going to test the Ciate one out. The Pur and Ace Beaute palettes are just eh, doesn't wow me. Most likely I'll pass these 3 along to someone. Also I can't even give a review for the Pur palette because there's no option. Still waiting for my Premium box.

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

Was that PUR palette even one of the advertised ones? So weird it was included in your box. I thought it was supposed to be the festival v 2 or one of the ace palettes. I'm sorry your box was a disappointment, @NinaNee!!

@haleyvvvv this Pur palette wasn't part of it. I got the Ace Beaute Bronzer Palette. I've looked on IG and only saw 1 other person get this palette, I didn't see any on the fb group I am in. I'm kinda bummed that the variations with the lash serum wasn't as good as the others. I really wanted Hourglass but I was fine if I didn't get it but when I saw this Pur palette I was so disappointed. I'm only keeping 2 items and giving 3 away.

love your addons! already tried the hanalei papaya & the coffee scrub is a life saver@haleyvvvv sorry to hear about the delay hope it doesn't become a thing. they had a few hiccups with me but not lately. knockonwood

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!!

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

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!
