BoxyCharm Beauty Subscription Box 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 and high-end brands.

BoxyCharm kindly sent me this box to review.

Each box comes with a card detailing the products included.

BoxyCharm Beauty Subscription Box Review - April 2014 Nail Polish

Bellapierre Cosmetics Nail Polish in Cotton Candy – Value $15

OFRA Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick in Hollywood – Value $19.90

This nail polish is 3-free, and I’m always excited about pale pink nail polish even though I already have so many shades of it!

ModelCo Blush Cheek Powder in Amaretto Sunset – Value $18

ModelCo Colour Box Eye Pencil in Black – Value $18

This blush shade is great for a “nomakeup” makeup look!

BoxyCharm Beauty Subscription Box Review - April 2014 Coolway


Coolway Glow Finishing Oil – Value $29.95

I’ve sampled Coolway hair products before from subscription boxes, and I love that their line is paraben, phthalate and sulfate free, plus their formulas work great for my hair. I can’t wait to try this finishing oil!

Verdict: I am so impressed with BoxyCharm lately! I love that this entire box was only full size products, and the value is just over $100! Do you subscribe to BoxyCharm? What did you think of the April box?

  1. Which is the better deal: boxy Charm or Wantable?

    • Boxycharm. I’ve been getting wantable for a few months, but I think this is going to be my last. The highest value I’ve gotten from a wantable box was around $90. It seems like boxycharm is starting to be consistently worth more than that, and boxycharm is a lot cheaper than wantable. It also seems like they are featuring similar brands now as well, so it’s not like you’d be getting anything better from wantable.

  2. To much pink! Bright pink pencil, lipstick and I got the bright pink blush. I got bright pink last box too. I cancelled, not poor quality of items but I just can’t use most of the colors they seem to send me.

  3. Is it just me or have all the beauty subs gone overboard with the eye pencils the last few months? First it was everyone sending ModelCo (ahem) and Starlooks products, then it was boxes of nothing but skin care products (Jan-Feb), and the last few months have been all about the eyeliner. I mean, how many eyeliners can one gal use? It’s not like I’m a fly with compound eyes, lol. But even with the eyeliner, this was a great box for me. They’ve really stepped up their game and come a long way from when they were sourcing products from third party vendors or dubious origin.

  4. I was disappointed when I opened my box, because the nail polish had broken. It was a turquoise color and didn’t really damage the other products so I thought it would be okay to just let that go, but then I saw that the blush was completely pulverized in its container. Liz, what do you suggest? Should I take pictures of the damage and email them? Do these subscription companies typically respond well to requests for replacement of damaged items? I hope so, because I have been really pleased with this box until now.

    • I haven’t had experience with BoxyCharm customer care, but any subscription box company should send a replacement or refund if you get damaged items. I would suggest emailing them about the damage and offer to send them pictures as well. (Some companies require pictures, others don’t).
      Hopefully they fix it asap!

  5. BoxyCharm has become a new favorite for me. Their boxes are such high value and I love that it’s mostly make-up instead of skin care.

    Also, is it just me or are BellaPierre products everywhere lately.?

    • Yes – BellaPierre is blowin up in the subscription box world! 🙂

  6. I would love to try Boxy Charm some time as the boxes look good lately! Do they ever run any promos though?
