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

The shimmery ones are SUPER shimmery. The matte one is nice and has a silky texture. The colors are gorgeous. A bit more product is needed to get a good color payoff, but nothing outrageous. If you order the palette you should check the Coastal Scents website for deals (in case there's other stuff you'd rather use your BB points for). I ordered some matte shadows from them a while back and get a ton of emails from them for sales. Big ones. Some are for more than half off. 

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

I got the Coastal Scent sample eyeshadow as well, it sucks. It is not pigmented at all. I used it with my UD eye primer, and it did not show up at all. Then I tried to swatch it on my inner wrist after putting primer on my wrist, nothing. And it is so powdery.. When I pat my brush down, it just dusts up. And for the N4 hair spray, it smells really bad to me and my sister, so its going in the TSB box, but it works really well.

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

I hate products that make my hair stink.  Thanks to my desire to try It's a 10, I have 2 opened leave in conditioners right now.  It will be a while before I try this one.

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

I swear the N4 shampoo & conditioner they sent last month made a bunch of my hair fall out - way more than usually does when I wash it. I think the whole brand is hexed. LOL. Bummer about the Coastal Scents. I was excited to get that sample, but haven't tried it yet. I have a couple of their matte single shadows and the color payoff and texture are great. Deep Sigh. 

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Although I agree with you about the N4 (it's awful!!), I had the total opposite experience with the Coastal Scents sampler! I found it to be buttery and extremely pigmented! I couldn't believe it was that pigmented, actually. Even without primer. O.o

 

It never ceases to amaze me how people can have such drastically different experiences with products like these. 

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

I got the pop bronzer in mine too, is it wrong that I think I really like it? 

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Finally, one of the products I can actually try soon.  I am hoping to try this tomorrow.  It looks a little dark for me, but I will give it a try.

 

I love finding things I like in bags that I never would have bought otherwise, so I do not think it is wrong that you like it.

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

I tried the Pop bronzer last night.  It was all right.  Nothing I would buy, but nothing I feel inclined to get rid of either.

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Seriously! Our boxed don't look like that Smiley Very Happy

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

A lot of months don't look like this. I'm just lucky because I got my Wishlist selection this month, it's hit or miss like almost all of the beauty box subscriptions. 

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

I hate They're Real Mascara, but that is the cutest box ever.

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

I thought I was the only one who hated They're Real Mascara.

Everyone loves it, but it just gave me like, FIVE, lashes. Not even nice ones-- spidery, brittle-looking messes.

So glad to find someone agrees haha

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Hate. It. It flakes all over my face, to boot. Smiley Tongue

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

I'm actually not a fan of the mascara either, I mainly enjoyed this months box for the novelty of it. It'll go on display somewhere... Haha

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Terrible packaging on that mini liner though! Feminine hygiene products anyone?

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Now, I do.

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Ohhh I like this box. I may have to subscribe. What color TF melted lippie is that? peony?

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Yes, it is melted peony.  This box has a history of leaving out a sample the site says you're receiving.  It has already happened to me twice, so I decided to cut this box when I made the decision to go from 5 to 2.

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Do they make good on the left out sample or are you just out of luck?

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

They made good on both of mine, but a bunch of people wrote on Facebook that their box was missing the LM powder last month.  When they called, they were told they did not have any replacements.  They were offered a $3 credit.  My box costs $16.22, AKA $3.24 per sample.  I'd be upset if they offered me anything less than $3.24 (even though I realize they have to pay for the box and shipping).  It is not the subscribers fault when an item is missing.

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Which two are keeping? I imagine Birchbox is one of them. Smiley Happy
