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)

Nicole Ritchie ACTUALLY makes a EDP or an EDT ???   I have never seen nor heard of it. That definitely can not be a high - end product. WOW, I guess anyone can market and put out a fragrance or make up these days....

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

I am trading Maria the black eyeliner for her blue, but here is my Ipsy bag.

My replacement Sample Society Box arrived today along with my Too Faced Melted Lipstick through IpsyMe.image.jpg

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

I got my first Topbox on Friday. I'm satisfied even though I don't think I'll actually use any of it.

My Julep box arrived today. I chose the bombshell box and added Blakely.Julep May 2014.jpg

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Darn, I thought blush box would be a box that only had blush.

My Sample Society Box arrived today. It is missing the Dermalogica sample my spoiler email promised, so I called in. They are sending me a whole box to replace it. Apparently, they cannot send just one item. I am not complaining too much, because their tiny mistake means I get nine products instead of 5 (even if 4 are the same). 

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

image.jpgI got the latest New Beauty Test Tube! I love it--it's like Christmas when it comes!! I get the one from QVC, it comes 4times a year. This one has: Full-size Dalton highlighter in Champagne, and full-size Mally gloss is Blossom. Deluxe samples of : OH Truth Serum, Wen Smoothing and Glossing Serum in Pomegranate, Algenist Genius, St. Tropez Bronzing Mousse self-tanner, PTR shampoo and conditioner, and Murad Essential-C Cleanser.  They come with a brochure that has description and use, plus a gorgeous, glossy magazine full of all sorts of skin care, treatment, makeup, etc. I have never been disappointed. All for 29.95 plus S&H. Highly recommended. there is one from New Beauty that has different products than the QVC one. Smiley Happy

Love me some Alterna. A while ago I had the CC cream on my loves list, haven't had the need to purchase it yet- I keep stockpiling on the deluxe Smiley Tongue 

Also really excited to try the MD solar science

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Feb was kind of a meh month for me I was only really happy with my Cocotique box:

I'm looking forward to my March Birchbox though, I've been wanting to try Michael Todd's line for a while.

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Here is my January Birchbox:

 

That's a Serge Normant dry CONDITIONER (which is just alcohol, chemicals and some argan oil). Now I need dry hair prep.

 

Nail polish looks fun and I always need headbands.

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

I love reading reviews of subscription boxes but I dread the videos.

 

I used to get Birchbox and Ipsy. I have cancelled both because I felt that I was getting too many products I wasn't going to use. It was fun for a year with each (roughly) but it sort of ran it's course for me. Ipsy was also geared a little young for me and Birchbox had a few too many foils, granola bars, and stationary for my taste.

 

The only box I get now is Stitchfix. I don't do it monthly because it would be too costly. I've gotten 2 boxes so far and a third scheduled for the end of Feb. I love having someone else find cute clothes and send them to me - I had so little time to shop. I plan to stick w/ it for a while. My first box was awesome and I kept everthing. My second box was meh - I liked two tops but one of them was too small, so I only ended up keeping one item.

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

SALE ALERT! Total Beauty Collection is having a warehouse sale. Up to 40% off their curated boxes.

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

What I like about Wantable is that they REALLY customize your box. They ask you what seems like 100 questions about stuff you love and hate, textures and the like. It is very pricey at $40 per box or $36 each with subscription. I got a discount so I got a free second box . This is my second one. I would continue, but I'm on a no-buy. They also do an underpants box and an accessories box. I may try a one off accessories box.

OMG!!!1!! Sorry for the state of my apartment!

 

IMG_20140113_122009_598.jpg

That's a primer brush! I didn't know they existed and didn't know I needed it, but now I don't have to get my hands all silky and can open up my products after I use primers!

 

Also wedged in there was a foil sample for a BB cream.

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Got my Wantables makeup box!

 

This is what it looks like when you first open:

And here are the contents:

1. FACE Stockholm Eyelash #2

2.  Mistura Beauty 6-in1 Beauty Solution Compact

3. Sorme Lip Liner 7 Natural Nude

4. JAPONESQUE Travel Smudger Brush

5. Starlooks Single Shadow Compact in Pearl

Sample of Sorme Under Foundation Makeup Enhancer

 

 

Here's a pic of some stuff opened:

Swatches of Starlooks Pearl, Mistura Compact, Sorme lip liner:

If y'all have never gotten a Starlooks single shadow compact I just wanted to show the design.  Love that the shadow lifts up and applicator and mirror are underneath

 

6.jpg

 

 

 

So I really like the eyshadow (I always love good highlighting eyeshadow for the brow bone) and the Lip Liner. I was surprised with this lip liner. I've never heard of this brand. It went on easily and really lasted.  Plus it is great with pretty much all neutrals.  I look forward to trying the eyelashes.  Not really sure what to think of the "6-in-1" compact.  I feel it could be used as a blush, maybe an eyeshadow, but nothing else. It is a little to pink to be a contour color.  

 

Still waiting on Ipsy and Glossybox but since I just joined, I think I will get February's boxes

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

Once I get my boxes, I can post pics. Hopefully next week

Re: Subscription box photo sharing

I have two birch box subscriptions and I LOVE them :-) i thought about doing ipsy, but I have enough right now and don't need more makeup other than what I get from sephora and birchbox.
