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

First time in quite a while that I'm not happy with my Birchbox. Some of this dissatisfaction comes from the fact that my box preview implied that I'd be getting a Beauty Blender. As you can see, I did not. At least I'm interested in the Dr. Brandt Vacuum Cleaner.

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Yes, the vacuum cleaner should be interesting. I tried a sample of the Jouer tinted sun cream and was not too impressed, which is a shame, as it's a great idea. But hand cream is always great for fall - although I've never tried that brand; here's praying it smells good Smiley Wink

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

I think I like the scent of the Tocca hand cream. I have way too many hand creams, though, thanks to my subscription boxes, and I am pretty picky about them. I despise anything that leaves my hands feeling greasy. This one actually seems pretty good with that, so that's a pleasant surprise.

 

The tiny bit of the Jouer I put on my hand seemed like it had a nice texture and good color. But I just don't do tinted moisturizers (or sunscreens) since I need more coverage than they provide.

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

I'm totally with you on greasy hand creams - not nice! 

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Mine is not here yet, but I am also getting that eyeliner (hopefully, mine is not black, because I already got a black one in another box).  I am hoping my Dr Brandt item will be the vacuum cleaner.  Bummer about the Beauty Blender fake out.

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

I got the non-sparkly version of the liner from ipsy a month or two ago. It did not work for me. (Not surprising as the only pencil liner that hasn't smeared allover my oily skin was MUFE's Aqua Eyes.) 

 

Bummer about the Beauty Blender fake out.

Right? That was just mean. Smiley Tongue

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Did you get a nail polish and falsies in a LIP products box?! LOLOL

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

it's not just for lip products, they include other products..their main thing is lip stuff though.

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Nice! I'm anxiously waiting for an update on my Glossybox...it's been stuck on the "paid" status for almost 3 weeks!! It's usually much faster than this. :-/

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Same here! It looks like a good one, though.

 

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Mine is still in that state too. Looks like some good stuff to me!

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

I finally got my Julep box in the mail today, halfway through August... and they sent me the wrong one. Again. Though after looking at swatches I think I like this one better than the It Girl box I originally went with.

On the other hand I've been hearing horror stories about people getting two or three of the glitter instead of whatever they went with so I'm glad mine was a happy accident Smiley Happy

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

They just sent me the wrong bracelet polish set (extra order; not a subscription box), and I am not happy.  The one I ordered was pretty and the one they sent was blah!  I hope they can exchange it.

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

The colors look beautiful. Mine got here as ordered, but my add-on came in a separate box and there was an extra eyeliner in it. Thankfully, it wasn't black because through other subs I have enough black eyeliner to last a couple lifetimes. I think they're giving out extra Jules for the late shipping - a lot of them. Kinda makes me wish they'd mess up every month. 

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

They're awarding just 100 points shy of a free box amount.  Too bad other boxes do not.  I got Julep two days ago and am getting enough Jules to order almost a full box to apologize, but I am still waiting on my Birchbox.  They did not give me anything for my angst.  Yes, I thought it would be fun to use the word angst as if I would be so devastated that my Julep did not arrive a few days earlier.  Too funny.

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

I just checked my account and they only gave me 350 Jules even though they sent an email claiming I was getting 1900.  I sent an email, but I wonder if they will respond.  I have not received a response to 2 recent emails I sent either (one of which was because they sent me the wrong items on something I ordered separately from the box).  

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

They corrected it and gave me the Jules.  Did everyone else get 1900?  If not, call or email them to make sure you get them.  I emailed and they corrected mine.

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

I've already put away my May Ipsy and Birchbox shipments (wasn't crazy about either of them), but my most recent Glossybox came in and I really liked it. Smiley Happy I'm new to Glossybox and thought my first box last month was just ok, but I think this month made up for it!

Also the first time a subscription box has sent me a deluxe size perfume sample. Smiley Very Happy

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

I got the exact same box as you x2.

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

@BuxomBabe80, I haven't tried it yet; I accumulate hair care samples faster than I can use them!

@notcreative, yep, $25 certificate included, forgot to include it in the photo. Excited to use it. Smiley Very Happy
