What do you think of the full spoilers for the May 2016 Boxycharm box? FYI – Boxycharm sometimes has variation in their boxes, so every subscriber may not receive the exact same items.

  1. I’m kind of annoyed at the eyeliner. Even on the brands own website it gets terrible reviews.

    • Right? I was almost excited because at least it’s something besides another black eyeliner (I have a million of those from subscription boxes). But this green color seems like a weird choice and won’t go well with my blue eyes, not to mention I’m pretty sure it’s going to accentuate my blue-toned dark circles. And another CM perfume?

      Everything in here is basically the same as my Allure box this month, but with worse products.

      Normally Boxycharm is my favorite box, but they really missed the mark on this one. It feels like the value is really low with this box and the colors they include seem too specific to be used on everyone.

      May has been an off month for all my boxes. My Nadine West box is supposed to arrive today, maybe that’ll make up for it!

  2. I think l boxycharm is amazing every month! For 21$ we receive close to $100 every month it’s crazy! But then again I’m not a complainer just appreciative of what boxy does for their clients every month! Love it!

  3. So happy I unsubscribed last month. One thing I seriously don’t like about Boxycharm is that they always include a fragrance, and I HATE fragrances.

    • Me too every month since I subscribed I got a dang perfume in every box. They are just sitting in a junk drawer. Disappointing

  4. I was watching the “hot new products may” on Makeup Geek’s You tube channel. She shows the new unreleased blushes. Start the video at 7:57… These have to be the blushes that are in this months box. The compact is the exact same… How cool is that?

  5. you guys should watch the videos on this May Boxy charm. I think I’m the only one that thinks it is a great box. You get 6 items. You get a Makeup geek blush(hopefully), eyeliner, lip pencil, nail polish, perfume, and brow gel. I like it.

  6. I saw the spoilers for this box and canceled my subscription. I’ve stuck with boxy for about 3 boxes and each one has been alright, but nothing I’ve actually gotten really excited for. This one was just the nail in the coffin.

  7. I am so glad I checked this spoiler first because I was about to treat myself to boxycharm since my birthday is this month. Uh such a disappointing box! Definitely not getting it. I will try again next month.

  8. I am super excited because I need a small perfume to keep in my car and it sounds wonderful. The brow gel is clear so I can use it with my red hair. The lip pencil is a perfect color and right there is the box value. I am worried about the eyeliner it has poor reviews. I hope the blush is good. I have never tried Makeup Geek

    • Have you looked into the H2BAR box? (How to be a redhead). I get my first box in June and I’m super stoked! I am excited for the brow gel in this boxycharm, it’s supposed to arrive today. Im impatiently watching for the mailman now. Haha

  9. Glad I cancelled after my 6 mo sub expired in April. This box is a ginormous dud.

  10. I feel like I fail at makeup obsession for not having anything makeup geek yet and blush never hurts my feelings, I’m on a quest to find the easiest and most effective way to do my brows mainly I fill spots and don’t worry a lot about shape as I’m content with their natural shape. Polish I’ll use sandals season and all. Lip pencil is something that is nothing special but definitely will be used especially in summer when I don’t want a lot on my face in humid DC former swampness. Liner and gloss is a win for me. My lips thank me for giving a rest on liquid lipsticks. Same of the eyeliner, nothing special but I’ll use it. Not jumping for joy here but the blush and brow gel sell me on getting this one since I skipped target and it’s not a walmart month I’m in. Damn you boxycharm!

  11. Not absolutely thrilled with this one since I don’t wear eyeliner or perfume. However, the brow gel is a win for me – six months into subscribing to multiple beauty boxes and that’s an item I’ve never received. Boxy does seem to be the best at coming up with items that aren’t same-old, same-old. The Spongelle Heart on a String soap sponge is another item that was usable and different.

    • I received a spongelle in a Popsugar box and I LOVED it. It was mango scented. I couldn’t smell the heart nearly as much but it was still a win.

  12. I use to get excited to see boxy charm spoilers and recieve my box now it’s like oh yea my boxycharm is coming. Nothing about this box is springy or looks interesting the makeup geek blush is cool but everything is like ok.. Boxy is slacking

    • I agree, and that’s so sad 🙁 They need more fun and bright colors and more on trend products!

  13. It’s an ok box but I’m glad I cancelled a month ago. I would had only used the eyeliner and nail polish depending on shades. Boxycharm is a good deal and somethings they send are awesome but it just hasn’t been great for me. I haven’t loved most of the products. I tried the box for a year and was never very impressed so I’m giving the play box a try. I rather get samples of products that I like then full size products I won’t use.

  14. For me personally it’s pretty ok.. I am luvin to yry the Geek Blue n a couple of other items. But was already planning to cancel after this box cause I start getting the Sephora Play in May.. Oh. It is May already. Yah!!!!!
    Plus I receive Ipsy, Birchbox, Julep, Loot crate.. Human and Pet Loots. I manage to get the Target and Walmart boxes before they run out. I may drop BirchB along with Boxycharm. I’m sure about dropping Boxy .. not totally sure bout Birch. Argggggg Decisions!!!

  15. I haven’t been tempted by a Boxycharm box since the Coastal Scents, Blinc mascara, and makeup brush box. It seems like their boxes are getting worse. Even Ipsy seems better.

  16. Hands down the worst box they’ve put out by far. This looks like a $10 box.

    • I agree looks like a 10.00 box my ipsy looks way better .This might be the end for boxy,it’s so hard being addicted to these damn boxes lol

    • I cancelled last week and am really glad I did. They just aren’t as good as they used to be. I don’t need to do my brow’s and have plenty of blushes, from sub boxes. Not liking the green polish shade. The lip pencil doesn’t excite me nor the perfume. I’ll see what June brings, but for now I’m excited to see what will come in my Ipsy bag and looking forward to my first Play! box!!

  17. Boxycharm boxes are getting worse every month. 3rd month in a row getting a perfume? Can’t wait till November till my subscription ends

  18. I cxled for awhile just to get my self control with sub boxes back, this will be the first box I won’t get. Not sad about it except for the MG blush. Good timing self!

  19. I’m going to cancel…this isn’t worth 21 per month..sticking with Allure and Sephora..and I’m getting more interested in home and luxury boxes…

  20. Glad i dropped them and added another Allure.

    • I signed up for a second allure box (yesterday, so I wasn’t attempting to get a second May box) but they seemed to have combined my accounts. They charged me for the 2nd sub. Did you have any problems receiving two shipments from allure?

  21. This entire box is a complete miss for me. The last couple have to be honest… My favorite has been the one that had the eyeliner and blinc mascara. I hope these improve, the value is outstanding but doesn’t do me much good if everything just goes into my swap tote.

  22. Pass, pass, pass, pass, pass, and pass. Glad I canceled.

    • I definitely agree this box is pretty boring. ..

  23. Yea this box is the latest of a string of disappointing boxes. Time to cancel

  24. Ohh I so hope I get the Pur liner in grey or brown!! Just that alone is the cost of the entire Boxy box! I bought it in purple for $21 from Ulta because I thought it was great and I’d really wanted other soldout colors, so hopefully I get one of the ones I wanted and can use (not black, blue, or the purple I have) and then I’m going to try to swap for the rest. If I get it, I am going to shout from the rooftops how much I love Boxy – once again!

  25. This box is pretty “meh”. Just cancelled. I’ll probably get this one, as my renewal date is in June, though.

  26. Out of all the Boxycharm boxes I’ve received or read about, I’m least excited about this one. Still, the brow gel is a little intriguing for me (I have sparse brows 🙁 Anything to help keep those few frightened hairs in place is a God send!) but other than that …

    Still, I guess after a year of checking out and experiencing their boxes, salivating over them and grabbing them out of my mailman’s hand as he makes his way down my street, while he stares jaw dropped whilst I skip back down to my house, they’re entitled to one yawn month. 🙂

  27. Wow, the pur minerals eye liner has HORRENDOUS reviews. That’s a disappointment. Was not a fan of the other CM perfume we got a few boxes ago. I haven’t been disappointed with Boxy yet, but this might be my last favorite box from them. Will just have to wait and see.

  28. I am happy to see a variety of products this month, the value is definitely there! Even thought they snuck in ANOTHER Catherine Malandrino frangrance. At least there are 6 items, so I will consider the perfume as a “bonus” this month.

  29. Sigh, not really excited for this box this month. The blush “might” be ok if its a decent shade. I am having crap luck this month so far. lol Target box= not so great amazon = not so great ipsy- not so great birchbox- NOT SO GREAT lol

  30. I do like those lip pencils. And the blush will be interesting to try. But the rest . . . . snooz-fest.

    • what kind of lip pencil is that?

      • Wth am I supposed to do with this green (Bali) eyeliner? Wait for St. Patrick’s Day? ?
