BoxyCharm Makeup Subscription Box Review – Feb 2014

BoxyCharm Makeup Subscription Box Review - Feb 2014 Review

BoxyCharm is a full-size and deluxe-size makeup and beauty subscription box. When they first started they were featuring drugstore brands like Revlon and L’Oreal, but lately they’ve been using mid-tier brands. BoxyCharm kindly sent me this box to review.

BoxyCharm Makeup Subscription Box Review - Feb 2014 Card

Each box comes with a card detailing the products included.

BoxyCharm Makeup Subscription Box Review - Feb 2014 NARS

NARS Nail Polish in Versailles – Value $19

Pandora’s Makeup Box Blush in Pout – Value $18

I was so surprised to see NARS nail polish in this box! I think it’s officially the most expensive nail polish in my collection now!

BoxyCharm Makeup Subscription Box Review - Feb 2014 Lashes

Eyelashi Lashes – Value $9

This is definitely the cutest packaging I’ve ever seen for eyelashes. (FYI – these are just lashes, they don’t come with lash glue to apply them).

BoxyCharm Makeup Subscription Box Review - Feb 2014 Mirabella

Mirabella LA LA Lips Lip Pencil in Sweet Velvet – Value $23

Mirabella Eye Definer in Bronze – Value $19

This lip color is a little too bold for me – I may end up swapping it.

Verdict: The February 2014 BoxyCharm box has a value of nearly $90 – very impressive for the $21 price! I was somewhat skeptical when this subscription first launched, but I think they’ve been improving a lot lately.

What do you think of the February 2014 BoxyCharm box?

  1. After reading the review I really wanted this box but sadly they do not ship to Hawaii :(. Others do so hopefully one day they will change their shipping to all 50 states.

  2. Liz – This is the first time I’ve commented on anything on the internet, but I wanted to tell you that your site is outstanding. I’ve been reading everything while trying to decide what box to try as a first subscription, and this one seems to be just right for me because of the full-size products and how much they have improved the selections. My receipt seems to indicate I will get the February box; I hope so, and thank you for all your diligent work.

    • Thank you so much Christine – you made my day! 🙂 I hope you love BoxyCharm!

    • I ditto everything Christine says! This website is the best! I say this even though my checking account is quickly depleting from all the subscriptions I’m signing up for. Lol. Seriously though, it’s so nice to get the scoop beforehand. Thank you for all your hard work, Liz! The information is invaluable!

  3. I am really loving this box!! This is my second month with them. I thought I’d just try it out and see but it’s definitely a keeper!! I got a different color Nars polish though, which I love!! I have received 3 false lashes in boxes so far this month and saw a spoiler for Lip factory where we are getting another one through them…. Not excited at all about that but I will say the ones included in this box is super cute and very good quality. I will keep them to try out someday but will be swapping the others!! Does anybody like getting false lashes?

  4. How do I subscribe to this box when I live in Canada it doesnt give me an option

  5. I love this subscription, I will cancel Wantable and subscribe to Boxycharm ASAP.

  6. i can’t believe they gave you nars polish! their polish is amazing…it lasts foreverrrrr.

  7. What a great value! I love Mirabella. I haven’t tried Nars polish yet. Is that yellow? So pretty for spring (or summer if you have a tan).
