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

This is awesome!

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

I am ready for TopBox to come to the US!!!

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

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Julep and Birchbox.  I want to be a member with Julep long enough to collect all of the gemstone polishes, so I will likely cancel after December.  At that point, I may rejoin a box I canceled, add a second Birchbox or get a brand new one all together.  I would like to have two at all times.  One just feels like too little once you've had five.

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

I really wanted this box but decided not to get it since I already have all of the melted lippies. Though now that I think about it, I could've just put that one in a TSB. Darn it Smiley Sad

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

This is the best box I've received from them.  It was my last though, so they went out on a high note.

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

I guess all those missing and exploded samples were finally too much? With your history with them, I can't say that  blame you. Although they do seem to be making a new effort to turn their service around. I hope it keeps up! These last two boxes were awesome. 

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

I may add them back on next year when I cancel Julep if they keep up the good bags.  I liked the last box too.  Even though my hair product exploded, I was able to use it once.  I enjoyed it, and there is probably enough for 1-2 more uses.  I wonder how many uses you get from a non exploded one, 5-6 probably.
