POPSUGAR Must Have Box November 2016 Spoiler + $15 Coupon!

This post may contain referral/affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.


The November 2016 POPSUGAR Must Have box is on sale now! (If you sign up for a subscription, this should be your first box.)

And we have the first spoiler for the November Box. We got a sneak peek from the POPSUGAR Must Have Facebook Live Reveal video:

Spoiler Time! Each box will include:


Stowaway Cosmetics Dawn To Dusk Palette – Value $25


(POPSUGAR sent me this spoiler early so I could answer any questions you have about it.)


This palette includes a mini brush with a blending brush on one side, and an angled brush on the other (great for using these shades as eyeliner as well.)


The light shade on the top left is matte, and can work as a highlighter, or base cover. All other shades have some amount of shimmer/sparkle. (The dark blue and brown shades read as matte, with a little sparkle, and the other shades are high shimmer, high pigment, metallics.)


Here are all the shades swatched:


This palette is paraben and cruelty-free, and it’s made to be the size of a credit card so it takes up as little space as possible in your purse/makeup bag, etc.

Here it is in my hand to give you a better sense of scale:


So tiny and cute!

What do you think of the first spoiler? I can never have enough palettes, and I think this is a good mix of colors for daytime and evening looks, so I’m excited about this box so far!

If you haven’t signed up yet, use coupon code FALL15 to save $15 off your first box. (Regularly $39.95. Check out our POPSUGAR Must Have reviews to see what has been in past boxes!) This code is only good for 24 Hours!

  1. going out dressed as the best Mom ever with my kids

  2. Does anyone know if PSMH have a phone number we can call and actually talk to someone? I can’t find it anywhere. Thank you! 🙂

  3. Liz, I could never make it work for me. I wrote them an email but I guess they won’t be back till Monday. Any idea why the code doesn’t work? It says uh oh, there’s no must have box! Thanks! 🙂

    • Any chance you’re trying to use the code with a pre-existing account? I couldn’t get it to work for a new sub on my account, but my husband creating a brand new account and was able to use it. Hope that helps! Sorry I don’t have a better answer!

      • Thank you, I made a new account. But still wasn’t able to use it. I wonder if it was because of the time. I’ll keep trying 🙂

  4. With that GREAT coupon, I bit the bullet. This will be my first monthly box, this past mystery box was my first Popsugar.
    I really hope it’s good so I can justify keeping the subscription for $40 a month after November.

    • First monthly popsugar box, I have a ton of other subs lol.
      I’m definitely gifting or swapping the palette, I have 15 too many lol

      • hi dominique–of course i dropped this sub last month and this palette is in it! if you are interested in swapping let me know what you may like-i have many items from past boxes i have been a subscriber to this box for years-money is just really tight right now.

  5. This will be my first Must Have Monthly box from PopSugar. Besides the Mysteryboxes and one mini the first month. I normally dont peak at spoilers because I love to be surprised.But I did and I am so excited… November is my Bday month and I when I seen that it was 25 for November…. Wait What…. Shhhh don’t tell my man… I loved both mystery boxes I recieved from them and I am trading a few goodies for 2 more candles. After I use them I am gonna make my Homemade Soy Candles inside the gorgeous container with a softer scent like Macintosh or Gain and April Fresh Downy. I also jumped on the FFF winter box too which I never have before but it will be a Christmas gift to me. My biggest issue will be wrapping it up until Christmas …..ok SURE! I am so happy with my luck with subscription lately. I also won, a Merlady box, a LVkiki box and LuxePineapple box in Sept. I just got the new Merlady box I won yesterday… I will post it on IG later… Anyway thats all..

  6. I like the palette, although I don’t need it. If they have a black Friday deal they’d send the November box, right? I’m tempted to cancel and see if the BF deal is any good. I’d hate to want to do the deal and end up with duplicate November boxes.

  7. Just resubbed after taking a few months off. October was very disappointing and this does not hook me. I loved this brand’s lipsticks but I need another neutral palette like I need a tassel on a blue clutch. It’s over PS. Now I really wish I had subbed to FFF before the winter box was sold out.

    • I am totally stealing that line. This is my new epithet. “I need that like I need a tassel on a blue clutch!” 🙂

  8. Hmmmmm…I like that the palette is small and the colors would work for me but I already have unopened eyeshadows and I really don’t need this one. I think I’ll skip this month. Maybe I’ll try the FFF box instead.

  9. I don’t understand why it’s okay for cosmetics to label themselves as cruelty free when they contain carmine, which this does. It’s ground up pregnant beetles.

    • What does ground up pregnant beetles do for make up, Like what is the purpose of it?

      • Red coloring. It goes by many names in the ingredient list, carmine is the most common name.

        • This is so gross. Like blissful ignorance sometimes is a good thing. Ugh, guess I can finally un-learn this. Like this is so gross that I want cry. Why does the beetle have to be pregnant. Is this even a real thing? Ugh, I’m horrified.

          • Red can be derived from a lot of gross things. If you google about where carmine comes from there’s tons of info out there. I just happen to know about it because I’m so allergic that an eye shadow made with carmine landed me in the emergency about two months ago. So I have to be hyper-aware about it now.

    • Beetles are bugs, not animals. Hence “animal cruelty-free” label is unaffected and still may pertain. I agree, that is gross information I am more than happy to remain ignorant about. ?

  10. How big are the pans? Can you got a regular sized brush in there? Also, are your swatches over bare skin or primer?

  11. Cute, but don’t need or want.

    I will definitely wait for a 6 month deal like last year, but I can also let PS go.

    • I feel exactly the same way…if there’s a good deal like last year then I’ll go for it but I can also do without PS

  12. I was so torn just yesterday on whether or not to pull the trigger and cancel……So very glad I did! After 1 1/2 years boxes Popsugar has for me, finally lost it’s luster. On to FabFitFun 🙂

  13. Super cute, I travel and those are colors that will work for me, always trying to downsize everything, less to tug around!

  14. Liz- I can’t quite tell from the picture. Is the one end of the brush a foam applicator thing or is it a brush on both ends. The end I am not sure on is on the bottom in the picture. Thank you.

    • I have the same question!

  15. And cancel. So not interested in a tiny palette

  16. I have Popsugar fatigue. A year ago, I would have loved this. It just seems like the same old same old. It’s totally appropriate for PS, but I think I just have enough. There are other boxes on my radar that seem more exciting to me.

  17. I cancelled and I’ll try to hold out until there’s a black friday/december deal (if there is one). I haven’t loved the last 2 boxes and I’m cranky over the mystery box duplicates. I also have about 1000 palettes and only two eyelids.

    • Debbie, this totally cracked me up! When you put it like that, I know I don’t need anymore palettes. Too bad we do only have 2 eyelids! At this rate, I’ll still be using my current ones when I’m 80.

    • That cracked me up lol

      • Definitely a great line! I agree with everything said!!

  18. I’m disappointed – I was ready to jump for $25 but I think the pallete that Boxycharm is offering up next month looks like it has more usable colors for me (and they seem to look nicer swatched?) and that box is only $20.

    Popsugar, I want to love you, I love the mystery boxes and being able to buy old boxes at discounted rates – but I’m not sure you’ll ever convince me to sign up for a monthly sub.

    • I also really like the color palette for eyeshadows boxycharm has in next box as well. Those violets and shimmers look great for holidays and i dont have those colors yet

  19. Now that my subscription’s up, I might just hold off until their next Black Friday deal…. this isn’t something that I need right now. Are the monthly boxes normally still available after full spoilers?

  20. I wasn’t too excited (still using pallets from past PS boxes and we just got the FF one) but then I saw the last photo with the size – this will be fantastic to travel with or keep in my gym bag!

  21. Hey Liz, do you know where the palette is made?

  22. I was impressed with the Stowaway lipstick trio from last year (and I’m pretty picky), so I’m pretty happy about this. 🙂

    • Same here! I really like those lipsticks and have been wanting to try more from the brand. Plus I can’t resist anything that’s miniaturized.

  23. Love the colors and small enough to keep in my purse!

  24. Soooo many eyeshadows from sub boxes and palettes i bought with these colors. Just gave my boxy charm palette away new and used bc i already have these colors 🙁
    I keep my eye on popsugar but hasnt convince me to sign up yet lol

    • 100% with you. I have kept my eyes out on PSMH for so long and it looks like they are just digressing. I’m not even in it for cost/value, as I already fork over $80 to Robb Vices with absolutely no spoilers. To be honest when I saw they included the book in the last box I just started laughing…. Seems someone has gotten an inflated ego. Hope it doesn’t bite them in the end.

      • I feel the same way! I look at PSMH every month and still haven’t subscribed. I bought the last two mystery boxes and the fall LE, but honestly only the first mystery box was awesome. My recent one arrived today and I’ll most likely be gifting every single item.

      • I will have to look at robb vices. Wonder if there are any mse reviews– will have to search for thay. I also am considering pearlesque box.

  25. If we hadn’t just gotten that big palette in the fall FFF box, I’d be all over this!

  26. Nope! Definitely not falling for his again. Never ordering popsugar again after the mystery box fiasco. 5 of the same boxes and nothing I want!

    Also this is like a sample size for $25. They are marketing it as something different but it really seems overpriced. And the colors don’t seem very rich. It doesn’t look very pigmented, no?

    • If you email PopSugar cust service and tell them you got 5 of the same box they’ll offer you 2 options…to either return the duplicates (they’ll send you a return label) and they’ll send you different boxes, or they’ll send you a “special bonus item” for each duplicate. I ended up keeping my boxes and asking for the bonus item, since I liked the one I got better then the options…who knows if the “bonus items” will be anything worthwhile (hello, burgundy pouf keychain, perhaps? ;-)…but at least the offered some options!

  27. This is a huge win for me! Wearable shades and small enough to stick in my bag to do my eyes when I wake up late for work!

  28. I love this palette. I have a lot of makeup, but I love getting new palettes, and it is the perfect size to fit in my Chanel 🙂 I am a very happy girl.

  29. I LOVE that you are getting PopSugar items early to swatch and talk about. It’s nice to see this stuff reviewed when you can still order the box!

    • Glad to hear it is helpful! If there’s any other info you need about the palette, let me know! 🙂
