Subscription box photo sharing

I've been on the Ipsy waiting list, but still look at the thread. I thought we could have a shared thread from all the subscription boxes (including non-beauty ones likes underpants and lifestyle such as Wantable and POPSugar). That way we can live vicariously through each others goodies!

 

(I know there are unboxing videos on YouTube, but I do not have the patience to sit through a five minute video about someone apologizing for the state of their hair. And I know there are blogs where I can see photos, but everyone usually gets different items in their boxes)

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Have you been with Boxy Charm for a long time? I REALLY love the look of this box!

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Sorry I'm just seeing this now! But I've only just subscribed in July. I'm loving all of my boxes so far, my only complaint is that there's nowhere on the website that says where you can enter preferences such as skin tone, whether or not you use certain products, etc. But then again, it's still a newish box that's just now gaining some popularity so maybe they'll add that feature soon! Smiley Happy But I tend to be pretty adventurous with using new products and I'll (almost) try everything once! So for me, it's 100% worth the money! My September box should be here any day now so I'll be sure to post a picture of that one too!

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Awesome! I subscribed yesterday, hopefully it was in time enough to get the september box.

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Why is Glossybox showing pictures of a BeautyBlender on their page for this month if they're not sending it out?!

 

I hope when I get my box I'll find out I'm wrong! But already two of the same boxes... another month with no variety Smiley Sad 

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Next month is looking like a good one, and there's a bit of variety. They're teaming up with Harper's Bazaar. If you go to the Bazaar site and then go to their shop option/by issue/September/page 3, you can see everything they may or may not be putting in yours. There is some pretty exciting stuff.

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

I'm really not a They're Real! fan, so I didn't have the school girl reaction over that one. The OCC Lip Tar has never appealed to me either, but I'll definitely still try it.

 

Definitely an improvement over the last couple of months though.

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

I know right? I wish they would give me a beauty blender lol. 

 

I am so excited about next month and Harper's Bazaar! I am kind of disappointed in this month though considering that it was their birthday month :/ 

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

This will be my last ipsy bag. Cheap bag, MORE BLACK EYELINER, basic lip balm. Meh. Over it.

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

My sentiments exactly.  I am so over black eyeliner.  Even when I am supposed to get a color too, my boxes screw up and send me black.  Happened to me twice in the same month with Birchbox and Sample Society.  That was the month that Ipsy sent the black Urban Decay one, so I had three useless black eyeliners within days of each other.  I was supposed to get pink from Sample Society, and I think purple from Birchbox.  I have a few purple, so no biggie to lose that one.  I had zero pink at that time and no intent on buying a pink one, so I was really looking forward to it.  I should have called and complained, but at least all the samples were in the box that month.  Now, I have a lovely pink (that is supposed to be Radiant Orchid), so I survived.

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

I know! Enough black eyeliner pencils and lip balm, people! I think this Christmas I'll just make everybody gift baskets and unload the excess. Man, child - I don't care. Balm and liner for everyone!

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

LOL!! I seriously have so many liners just from them, and almost all of them suck. Argh. Time to find a new box.

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

My Ipsy + Glossybox came in today:

The only products I've tried so far are the Pixi tinted lip balm (what tint??) and the Bare Minerals BB cream eyeshadow -- by which I was pleasantly surprised! It goes on nice and though it's nude it's just a little shimmery, and it doesn't irritate my eyes at all like most cream shadows do. 

 

And the GRE books in the background also came in today. Smiley Tongue I left a PhD program last year and here I am, going for it again. Oh, I hope I know what I'm doing, lol. 

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Good luck on the GRE!! I take my boards in 4 months - I am having the same feelings Smiley Happy

Your Glossybox looks awesome! And it came so early - awesome!! Glad to hear you like the BM BB eyeshadow - I got that too, now I'm looking forward to trying it

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Oh my gosh your glossybox came in already? Ah! So exciting!

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

The Glossybox looks amazing! Can't wait to get mine. My Ipsy and Birchboxes this month weren't my favorites. Seeing this gives me hope. Good luck on your GRE!

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Literally just got my Sample Society box. I'm loving the revamp -- it was much needed. Even though I wish that I got a different color of the L'Oreal Colour Riche lipstick (it's too dark of a red for my taste) and probably won't use a metallic nail color, I'm excited to see that they are moving in the right direction with a better selection of products (and not primarily skincare). I also wanted to mention that the Maison Francis Kurkdijan fragrance developed interestingly...it first smelled like bug spray for about 15 mins, which was awful. However, when I came back to it, it's quite nice and elegant. Maybe it just can't be one I spritz on right before I head out the door...

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

This box has me wondering if I should re-up. Everything looks good.  Thanks for posting, I wanted to see a revamped box.  I still feel like they owe me for my three months I was subscribed, it was so bad.  

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

There was a rough patch there, but I hope this new trend continues...

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

I am excited about the revamp too.  After four facial moisturizers and 2 perfumes in the last box, it was time for a revamp.  That was just crazy.

 

My box is not scheduled to arrive until Friday, but I am hoping they get it here sooner.

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

I love seeing what everyone got in their subscription boxes!! I need to see more Sample Society (do I keep it?) and Glossybox (do I get it?) pics!

 

I forgot to get pic of my Sample Society (but it was the same as Notcreative's, so just look at her's twice).

 

Here's my June Birchbox, which I am liking so far... mostly. The Perlier is very effective and I would adore it - but I find its scent maddening!! And it will.not.go.away. Meanwhile, the fragrance is actually really nice (although I'm not a big fragrance person.) I plan to try the hair stuff this weekend.

And here's my June Ipsy. I actually love the NYX, even though I was afraid teh color would be too orange-y for me. I liked the eye liner at first, but more than half of it had worn off by after about 6-7 hours. The BB Cusion is actually pretty neat. I think I may like it! Smiley Happy

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Were you shorted the extra sample too or did you get all of yours?  My replacement is due in today, so I hope it contains the missing one this time.
