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

Slightly annoyed with my ipsy bag, because I'm honestly not going to use most of this. Not going to use the tanning oil, or the hair stuff. I'll use the eyeshadow and I have the lip product on now, but seriously do I have to get something from POP in every dang bag, I mean REALLY?

*pouts* considering unsubscribing...I just haven't been as happy with ipsy as I thought I'd be.

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

I got the exact same do you like the lippie? Does the color look okay with your skintone?

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

It's kind of sheer, but also a little lighter than something I'd normally use. I wish I hadn't used it though, but since I did I'll just use it when I'm around the house.

My July Birchbox - REALLY happy with this month! (Except the Whish shave cream was not too awesome. I shredded my legs using it!)



My July Ipsy - Pretty happy. The Bare Min cream shadow was waaaay better than I expected. So was the Elizabeth Mott Benetint lip stain. But I have zero use for tanning oil and I'm one of those few who hates They're Real mascara. (Also, the bag is SUPER cheap looking.)


And my July Sample Society - Everyone got the same thing this month, so no surprises. Except my hair mask didn't explode or leak. Even though I recognoze that this is a quality box, I don't expect to get a lot of use out of it. I'm not into nails or fragrances and I prefer liquid highlighters to powders. Oddly, I'm happy with the L'Oreal lippie and the hair mask.




Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Nice boxes! I actually got a very good shave with the Whish but my issue with it is the inconsistent smell. Sometimes it smells wonderful (when more of the acai comes through) and then other times the grapefruit just kills it. Kind of gives off a sour smell (mine did at least).

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

You got a fantastic Sample Society Box!  I've been hearing about how amazing the Maison Francis Kurkdjian scents are, but unfortunately I don't live near any retailers that carry them.  


I would love to hear how you get on with that L'Oreal liquid lipstick.  I have one in Rouge Allegro, and while I adore the color (it's a beautiful strawberry red), it has a tendency to wander out of my lip lines.  I'm sure it's nothing that a lip liner can't solve, but I was hoping that it would be a low-maintenance, apply-and-go, type of product.  

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Subscription mom posted a couple spoilers for Ipsy and Glossybox in August - Just one product from each. If they are true it looks pretty good!

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Are you going to redeem your free box for this one?  That highlighter does look pretty, and I bet they will have another big box to celebrate their anniversary.  I am still so mad that they canceled my subscription though.

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

I am leaning to yes - the highlighter looks nice...Plus August is my birthday, so more makeup things are always good Smiley Wink

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Here's my Birchbox.




Oh wait.  There's no picture, because I still have no box.  They told me they will check inventory to see if I can get a replacement but it will not be the amazing one I was expecting.  AKA a leftover box.  Boo hoo.  I upgraded to an annual subscription because of how awesome the box looked, and I am not even getting it now.  


Rant over.
