BoxyCharm Subscription Box Review – October 2016
BoxyCharm is a full-size beauty and makeup subscription box. They always provide a great value compared the cost of the box.
This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
The Subscription Box: BoxyCharm
The Cost: $21 a month
The Products: 5-6 beauty items that will include nail care, skin care, makeup, haircare, fragrance and more. (At least 4 of those items will be full-sized).
Ships to: US and Canada
Each box comes with a card detailing the items included.
Now, time for the items!
Luxie Beauty Eye Blender Brush Pack – Value $36
I’ve received Luxie brushes in Ipsy bags before and I love them! The bristles are super soft, and the rose gold and pink colors are beautiful, too.
This set includes:
Luxie 229 Tapered Blending Brush – Value $12
Luxie 237 Blending Brush – Value $12
IBY Beauty Three’s Company Eye Shadow Trio – Value $19
Lucky for me, I can never have enough eyeshadow palettes (and Boxycharm tends to send them often!)
This brand is new to me, and I’m impressed with the formulas. There are two shimmer shades, one highlighter, and one coppery metallic. The third color is a matte cocoa that is a great everyday shade for me. (And the formulas are paraben-free!)

Starlooks Ultra Matte Lip Paint – Value $11
(The card lists the value as $19, the only matte lip product I could find on the Starlooks site is $11, but the packaging/tube is different, so that $19 value may be correct.
I like the color and pigment of this formula. The shade works well for my skin tone, and the pigment gives great matte coverage. (I can’t find ingredients for this product online or on the packaging, though.)

TEMPTU Shimmer Bronzer (Value $29.50)
This is a super concentrated bronzer, so you only need a few drops! You can blend it out for contouring, or mix it with a moisturizer to give yourself an overall bronze look. (This also works well with blending with body lotion for a temporary tan.)
FYI – Subscribers may receive this item or:
- Cargo Cosmetics Swimmables Water Resistant Bronzer (Value $29)
- Cargo Cosmetics BeachBlush (Value $30)
- OFRA Cosmetic Laboratories Beverly Hills Highlighter (Value $39.95)
Here it is swatched underneath the matte lip paint:

Full-size Briogeo! Yay! (Their formulas are always free of sulfates, silicones, and parabens.) I’ve gotten a lot of Briogeo masks thanks to subscription boxes, but this heat protectant creme is new to me.
This creme is lightweight and designed to be used on damp hair before blow drying and using heated tools. I tried it on dry hair too, and I like how soft it made my hair feel.
Verdict: This box has a value of about $119. As always, the value for Boxycharm is amazing! I think this is one of my favorite Boxycharm boxes of all time. (The eye shadow brush trio alone is such a win!)
