BoxyCharm Subscription Box Review – January 2017
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!
Boxycharm has variations of boxes each month, but this item is in all boxes.
And it is stunning! (Swatched in lower photo.)
Both of these shades have so much shimmer and really catch the light well. The pigment is great, too. If you’re hesitant about overdoing it with this much shimmer, the good news is that Boxycharm included a fan brush for all subscribers this month, too!
Crown Brush Fan Brush – Value $13
(All subscribers will either receive this brush or the So Susan Fan Brush.) This brush is super soft, and holds just the right amount of powder to give you subtle, even coverage.
Pur Cosmetics Cheek Stain – Value $26
(Subscribers will either receive this or the Pur Cosmetics Mineral Glow Bronzer.)
I was hoping I’d get the bronzer (I can never have enough matte bronzer), but this cheek stain is pretty great, too. It has a delicious fruity scent, and the color is very blendable.
The brush on the opposite side is pretty small, though, so I had better luck just blending with my fingers.
And this box came with a 25% off coupon code for your next PurCosmetics purchase.
Here is the stain swatched beneath the highlighters:
Adesse NY Ultra Suede Matte Top Coat – Value $18
(This item is not in all boxes.)
This matte nail top coat is lovely! It dries almost instantly, gives a matte finish, and it also feels super smooth. Normally I go for high-shine creme polishes, but this is a nice way to mix it up!
Oscar Blandi Pronto Dry Shampoo Spray – Value $23
I know not everyone is happy about getting dry shampoo in subscription boxes, but we always use it – and this Oscar Blandi dry shampoo is a classic that works well and has a sweet, citrus scent, so I’m happy!
Verdict: This box has a value of about $115 As always, the value for Boxycharm is amazing! I really like my box, too. The highlighter and fan brush are fabulous, the matte nail polish top coat was a nice surprise, and the dry shampoo is always useful. I like the Pur Cosmetics cheek stain, too, but I know I would have used the bronzer more, so if I could change anything about the box I’d go for the other variant option.

FYI – According to Boxycharm, if you sign up before the end of any month, that month’s box will be your first box.
