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)

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





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

My Ipsy December GlamBag

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!


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

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.

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

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.
