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)

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

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

@cindyvonlovelyOoo is the Trestique dual-ended? It looks like a pencil in the first photo, but more triangular in the last pic.

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

No, that’s just TrèStique’s packaging. They all have that pencil shape packaging, but it’s just really the cap. The triangular tip is the actual product @Guessgal

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

Fabulous box, @cindyvonlovely!!!

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

@Tamara76, the Secret Key honey banana sheet mask smells so good!  It's very hydrating as well!

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

Great to hear, @myinsidevoice!!!!   The big question is:  Does it smell like bananas?   Smiley Happy   

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

@Tamara76, my bad for not mentioning that - poor form, @myinsidevoice!  


It has more of a floral honey scent. 

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

Thank you, @myinsidevoice!   I am still waiting to find more banana scented banana products - lol!   So far, Tony Moly hand cream is the only one I can think of...

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

@myinsidevoice, i don't do well with heavily fragranced products - is the scent really strong?  if it's floraly and honey scented, is it sickly sweet?

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



I'm also not big on overly scented skincare products.  This one is not bad at all; I wouldn't say it's "lightly" scented as the scent is detectable.  It's not sickly sweet either.  I initially thought it might just all be about cutesy packaging but surprisingly I found the sheet mask to be hydrating and also a little brightening.

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

thanks @myinsidevoice!

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

All of those look great @Tamara76 ! Especially the popsugar one 

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

Thanks, @Kim888!!!   I love PSMH - There have been a couple of misses, but they have an awesome track record overall! <3

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

@Kim888, @Tamara76,


I love the PopSugar subbie boxes.  I've whittled down the boxes I'm subscribed and it was hard making that decision but it was easy to know that the PS sub would stay!

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

Each of your subscriptions look awesome @Tamara76

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

Thank you so much, my dear! @ElleElleG   xoxoxoxo

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

@Tamara67 the shadow brush in the Ipsy bag has quickly become a favorite! I use it to pack on my shadow on my outer v and blend. The point it comes to is perfect for that! It’s just so precise. Now I want another one...or maybe 2! When I find a brush that works, I always buy backups! Lol

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

@darlyndar I haven't used this one yet, but I really like the Luxie brushes I've gotten in other subs.  I do the same thing -especially with my Sephora Pro brushes - lol! 

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

@Tamara76Wow, everything looks so nice! especially the Birchbox sub!! Hope you enjoy all your goodies! Smiley Happy

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

Thank you so much, @Guessgal!!!! <3 <3 <3
