I was really looking forward to this box, but the mail lost it. I was told they could send a replacement. No word back if they are going to. It’s been over 10 business days. I was really looking forward to it. I am afraid they will not send the same products if they do. Disappointed!

It’s an expensive subscription!! Ipsy and Allure were both $10 for the first month and provide products of similar quality. I did like the Tarte pallette (as I love almost all Tarte products), but the rest of the items in the box I wasn’t too impressed with. I don’t use fake eyelashes and the nail polish color doesn’t look good with my skin tone. The cheek/lip tint doesn’t make sense to me and I’m not quite sure how to use it. On my lips it doesn’t stay for long and on my cheeks it doesn’t look quite right. I did like the brushes, but wish they included a foundation brush. Overall, an okay box. I hope next month’s products are better.

My shipping label was created on the 7th and my box is STILL stuck in labeling, it hasn’t moved at all, tomorrow will make 3 WEEKS!!!! I have already emailed customer service with no response. Ugh, this is my second month and this kinda sucks I’m having this experience. Is anyone else’s box stuck in labeling for 3 weeks too?

JuJu

It’s going to be two weeks tomorrow, not three. Hope you get the box soon.

viola

a lot of times it will update after you receive your package or on the day, its the shipping co. not boxycharm, be patient it will be there, i live on the west coast and won’t receive mine until this week or next.

Adriana Duarte

What’s Kit 4?

Marie

Variation #1 with the nail polish and the face paint. That’s what I got.

Rhonda

August was my first boxycharm and I was so excited to receive it! I signed up on 8/3 and received it yesterday (8/17) but never did receive a shipping email confirmation.

OH well! That being said, I received box#3… sort of. In the box there was:

– the gorgeous Tarte palette
– the Royal and Langnickel brushes (love love love!)
– the Pur lashes
– the liquid lip color.

That was all – not that I am complaining, (but yes, I am) but it seems others who received box #3 had another item or two. And the color of the liquid lip is lovely, but I absolutely hated the feel – it’s super drying and difficult to apply evenly, and then flakes off. I was so dissapointed. It was like opening socks on Christmas!

BUT, I will hold out and see what September brings… with crossed fingers! Has anyone else been shorted in a box?

Jackie S

You should have gotten an eyeliner too. Email boxycharm and tell them you didn’t get your 5th product!

Alex

I got my box with the Alesse polish and the Aloette cheek and lip tint and I’m thrilled Aloette doesn’t test on animals.

My weight was .9 oz

JuJu

Mine weighs 0.8, so I am really hoping for combo #3.

Melissa W.

The Tarte Palette is on sale for half off at Sephora for just 18$…

JuJu

Well, think of it this way: for $3 more you are getting four other items. And there isn’t even tax.

Allie

Guys , my shipping label was created on the 7th and it still hasn’t moved last labeling 🙁 it’s been 11 days now, is this normal??? My box weighs 0.8 lbs , I hope I’m getting variation #3! 🙂

Nicole

Both my box and my sister’s box weighed 0.8 pounds and we both got box #3! The lipstick is gorgeous and the eyeliner really stays. I hope you get your box soon!

Jackie

If I were you, I would email customer service. I’ve waited a week for my box to start moving before, but never almost 2 weeks that seems crazy! I would be upset.

JuJu

Mine has been saying “label created” since 8/8 also, I’ll just wait for the tracking info to populate. There are still a lot of days left in this month, I don’t think there is reason to panic yet. 😃

Jackie

I got variation #3 with the liquid lipstick and eyeliner. The liquid lipstick is pretty, but it’s super drying. And the gel liner kinda sucks IMO. But it’s okay because the other 3 items are freaking awesome!

Julie

I just got my box and I’m got #3. If anyone would like to trade I got the the liquid lipstick but I really wanted the nail polish

vanessa

I got #1!

My box was super protectively packed this month. The gods have smiled on me once again – my palette (most importantly) & other contents were intact.

Kaitlynn Marie

It’s all your fault, I blame you! I just caved and got the August box lmao

Jaycee

Which tarte palette is it? I thought I read it was III, but that’s not it in the photo….

Jackie

Its vol 2

Eeyore

Hahaha! The weight thing. There are different amounts of packing worms in the box.

Linda

I really love everything but, I’d prefer​ the variation with the black eyeliner nude colored liquid lipstick because that’s what I spend my money on. IMO, you can never have enough nude lipsticks and black eyeliners. I really never use false lashes so that’s a give away for me. But literally EVERYTHING I ever get from Boxycharm I keep and use. I love it when I get all kinds of palettes, highlighters & makeup. You can’t beat $21 EVER! Even if it’s a color you think you can’t use, try it, mix it, gift it. Usually just 1 item is more than the cost of the box. Everything else is like à bonus.
It’s no big deal! It’s a subscription box & we are signing up to try new things. Instead of forking over full retail prices, we get a chance to get to try even full sized products at a fraction of the cost. YES PLEASE!

Crystal

Does anyone know which voz variarion has a weight of .8?

Allie

My shipping label says 0.8 lbs as well

Mary Lord

I was watching unboxings and I’m pretty sure it’s box #3 .. mine also said .80

ivana

My box ways .8 too. I would love to know whats in it.

tracy

that is what mine is also, hoping for #2

lanie

I am wondering the same.. my box is .8 as well..

Crystal

Box variation*

Ana

I’ve been debating this one for a while and finally took the plunge because of the spoilers AND that the wait list is open so it would be a guarantee for this box, but when I signed up yesterday I got the waitlist email. Kinda bummed out, I saw the spoiler for Sept 2017 and got more bummed.. not a fan of PUR cosmetics eyeshadow. Has anyone that signed up gotten the waitlist email and then gotten an email saying they’d been taken off the waitlist and will receive the August box?

eddiesmonkeyprincess77

Yes.lots of people.just email them and ask if your on the waiting list cuz You heard there was NO waiting list this Month and THEU take you off and you get your box.😊

Marcianna

A family member signed up this month, got the waitlist email but got another the next morning saying she was off so hopefully the same will happen for you.

Karen

I really hope I’m getting that first box. I have way too many black eyeliners and I almost never wear black. I’m already getting one from Ipsy this month. I’m also sick of matte liquid lipsticks. I have three subscriptions and I seem to get at least one black eyeliner and one dry as heck liquid lipstick every month!

Lola

I find the Mystic Matte liquid lipsticks from Notoriously Morbid dot come to be very comfortable and non drying. They are bold colors and I recommend a nude or invisible lip liner. After about 8 hours of wear I add a little lip balm and the color refreshes and the matte remains comfortable. The Sephora brand is not bad either but don’t have the long wear Tha the NM has. I

Alex

I get NM monthly and the lippies are nice. I order them in the site too.

I have not used any of the lose eye shadows because I’m so intimidated by them. I know I need primer, but if you have any advice on the shadows please share!

Lori

I reeeeeaaalllly want the last box with the lippie and gel eyeliner and I hope to get that one,fingers crossed 🤞 no shipping info for me yet though so I’m just happy that we’re all getting the tarte pallet and the brushes 😍😍😍

Pollyanna

Which box did you get, Lori? I received the lipstick and won’t use it if you’d like to swap for something 🙂

Jess

Agreed, im an old customer and still have have not received but its early in the month so no worries..im just so anxious..lmao..best box ever😜👍

Korey

YAY! My box has shipped…well, not really, the label was created but I’m still a week ahead of last month, so there’s that. Mine’s listed at .8lbs. I really don’t care which box I get but I would prefer one without the face paint. I can’t wait!

Miriam Mendez

Mine weighs 0.9 but I want the opposite as you lol hey we should trade if we get the ones we don’t want

Cindy

Has anyone received a shipping notice? If so, where does it ship from and by which shipper? Thanks.

This will be my first Boxycharm in a long, long time. Hope I do not get the one with the liquid lip product.

Korey

I think it depends on where in the country you are located. I’m in Florida and while BoxyCharm is based out of here, and I have to pay taxes on my box, mine is shipped from Wallingford, CT. They all come FedEx Smartpost meaning it starts with FedEx and then they transfer it to the USPS for finally delivery to your house.

bmcd3713

Cindy, I got a shipping notice this morning…

Resa

My shipping notice says it originates in Wallingford, CT and sent FedEx ground…is always delivered USPS at the end, though.

Wendi

My Boxycharm arrived this afternoon and I got the one I wanted. Mine has the red polish and a berry cheek lip tint!
I rarely get the one I would like so I’m excited.

Alex

Me too!

Lissy

What is the weight of your box please? i’m hoping for this variation and my box weighs in at 0.8 pounds according to FedEx.

bmcd3713

Wendi, CONGRATULATIONS! It’s nice hearing some good news for a change! 😉

My fingers are crossed for my own box, but I like all three variations (but my fave is with yours).

Olivia

What was the weight of yours?

Sami

If I get Box #3 or Box #1 with the lipstick instead of the cheek whip, I’ll be so thrilled! So excited for this (and next month’s) box!

Mindy

UGH I am so disappointed !! It clearly says that the wait list has been lifted for Aug so i Subscribed and after signing up got a msg saying i am put on the wait list because they are out of boxes =,(
I really wanted this box! Bummer… they should probably stop saying they have no wait list on this box =/

anita

Likewise, I signed up specifically because the “wait list has been lifted” and I really wanted the tarte palette…….I am probably going to see if I can be taken off the subscription list. I only wanted this box

bmcd3713

Anita, how do you know you only wanted this box? Most of the items for September and beyond are not even listed yet?

Mindy

UGH I am so disappointed !! It clearly says that the wait list has been lifted for Aug so i Subscribed and after signing up got a msg saying i am put on the waitlist because they are out of boxes =,(
