Any updates on our box yet? No pressure, just curious!

It was delivered on the 21st, but I haven't heard from the participant yet.

Who has the box?
post #10 of 44
Looks like SarahM should have it. It doesn't look like she's signed on in a while. I'm excited to be next, so fingers crossed it goes on the move again soon.

I assume she was on vacation for the holidays or something...I'll drop her a PM if I don't have an email soon.

Sorry, I was out of town.  I have the box and will send it either today or tomorrow.  Will post pictures later today.

This is exactly what I figured. No problem, definitely understandable since it is the holiday season and all.

The box will be on the move again as soon as I get the next address.

 

In the meantime, here are some photos..

I believe that is a leftover box from the last round hehe.

post #17 of 44

Holy cow, girl! You're the bomb!

post #18 of 44

It is the leftover box from last round.

 

The box is on its way to the next person.

post #19 of 44

That's me! Assuming it gets here tomorrow or Saturday, I'll probably take the weekend to go through it and hopefully it'll be off to Tulipop by Monday.

post #20 of 44

Got the box and went through it at work. I'll have to post a pic of what I'm adding when I get back home. As for the entire contents, it's quite similar to what sarahm already posted, so I'll just show what I took for now until I can spread everything out later. I barely made a dent in the box!

 

Took:

The box is a little beat up around the corners, so I'll probably replace that. Nothing was damaged and it was all packed great. One observation is that there are more lip glosses and mascaras than I was expecting, or at least relative to the first swap I was in. However, none are sealed, so I have to assume they've been tested or swatched at some point, clean as some of them look. Jenna, if there are still a lot left by the time it gets back to you, I'd consider tossing them rather than having them circulate again in a future round. That might just be my opinion, though! In any case, it'll be on its way to the next person tomorrow!

 

Still in box:

Oh, and there's also a baggie of packets that I forgot to take a photo of.

 

My contribution (aside from the palette that didn't fit, I packed up this stuff in a Sample Society box):

I agree with this.  Does anyone know what condition these items could possibly be in?  Should they be removed now? I'm not sure how you could even sanitize these items...

My opinion is take/trust at your own risk. Mascaras and lipglosses in my sample boxes have rarely been sealed. If you don't want them, don't take them, but don't throw it out because someone else might not care.Of course, that is how I look at everything in these boxes. smile.gif

That's fair. You're right, someone else might want them and it is easy enough to just not take it. I definitely don't think anything should be removed at least till the end (unless it's due to damage) but I guess my other concern was that certain items might still be floating around unwanted and adding unnecessary bulk to the box indefinitely. For what it's worth, I'm personally comfortable with the final recipient of any of these boxes weeding through and perhaps tossing items as they see fit. Especially since it seems like most of the items in this particular box were already leftovers. Anyway, hope I'm not coming off like I'm telling you how to run this or anything, just wanted to add my input!

post #24 of 44
Most of those lippies and whatnot added by Sarah came from the last round I participated in. There was a mix, but I don't recall the mascaras or most lippies being used/swatched. If they were, they arrived marked or in a bag marked as such. Maybe whoever has the box can reorganize and sort the items into baggies before sending on to the next person? If it looks used, separate into a bag and unused into another?
post #25 of 44

Sarahm packed everything nicely into multiple mesh bags (not sure if it was already like that, but if not, nice touch). When it got to me, I reorganized it mostly into like items (lip, face, eyes) in the same bags, but nothing came labeled, so it was hard to say for sure what was swatched/used and what wasn't. There were just so many items that it felt overwhelming, and I was only 3rd! Now I'm quite curious to see what it ends up looking like at the end.

post #26 of 44
Lol, sooo many things to choose from. It can be a little overwhelming; I didn't know where to start when the box arrived in my hands on the other swap thread!
post #27 of 44

Hey there,

 

Just wanted to let you guys know that I got the box today and boy is it big.  I can't go through it today/tomorrow because I'm busy with school/work but will do over the weekend.  I'll take pictures and ship it out on Monday!  

post #28 of 44

I'm next. This is going to be the highlight to my grueling week of finals.

post #29 of 44

Hey guys,

 

Sorry I got back from work too late to mail it out today so I'll be mailing the box out tomorrow, will update this post with pictures tomorrow.

 

Edit: Pictures and I'm going to the PO to mail it out now.
