Who out there has never tried a subscription box? I’ll wait….oh right, pretty much no one. They’re so prevalent now. I swear there’s always a new one that I hear about each week. I’ve definitely tried a few of them and there have been some great ones, and some not so good ones.
Here’s what I thought of the ones I’ve tried.
In my box I received two nail polishes, a lipstick, and a gloss. The lipstick and gloss are great. The shade works perfectly for my skin and I wear the lipstick almost every day. I love that it has a magnetic container, so when I close the lipstick it magnetically closes. But that’s just me being a nerd and liking magnets. The fail part about the box is that Julep focuses on nail polish. They sent me two dark polishes (fine, it’s Fall) but when I removed the nail polish it not only stained my nails but my hands too! It took a whole day before my hand wasn’t blue any more. If you’re curious which one it was, it was the Elise nail polish that stained my hands. I haven’t had the courage to try the other one yet.
I tried this a longggggg time ago before I was even into reviewing a lot of products on my blog. They’re alright. I wish they switched up some full size products with the samples. Also, I wish that they had included a little make-up bag or fancier packaging. With the small products, the box looks a bit empty and left me feeling a bit disappointed. It’s nice that it’s pretty cheap, but I would pay an extra $5 for a make-up bag to be included or a full-size lipstick.
Okay I’m being a bit harsh here. I haven’t actually received my trendsend box yet, but I ordered it two weeks ago and they haven’t send it yet! I searched around on their website for a while before noticing it says it can take up to 14 days to send out, so I just reached out to their customer service department to get an update. That’s basically the only downfall of Trendsend so far. At least with Stitchfix you can choose the exact date you want it to arrive and can anticipate it. Especially when you have a deadline to return the clothes!
