  1. Dangit, signed up last night and put on the waitlist :/ Really wanted that tarte eyeshadow!

    • Are you still on the wait list or have you received a box yet?

  2. I just saw a YouTube unboxing with a couple variations. There was an eyeliner and lipstick instead of the cream blush and nail polish.

    • Depending on the colors, I hope I get that one! Nail polish is just a waste of space for me, and that cheek-lip thing doesn’t appeal much to me either.

      • I hope I get that one too. I love nail polish, but I don’t have very good experiences with Adesse.

  3. Oh thank goodness, no more highlighters. Now if we can get something other than pink for lips. But what a great box. Super excited for it to come every month.

  4. I’m glad that were not getting another highlighter. I’m overwhelmed with highlighters.

    • I subscribed so I can get this box. Does anyone know when I can unsubscribe so I don’t get next months.

      • Just unsubscribe as soon as payment is taken. Payment means you are getting that box, so once they take your money for the August box, cancel. They will take money for September’s on September 2nd, so the 1st would be the latest to cancel and not get September’s box.

  5. This box may be my favorite! But knowing me, I always get the boxes with the variations, so I slightly get sad when I don’t get what I expect. Oh, well right? July box wouldve been my favorite if I didn’t get that shimmer lotion thing.

  6. Hi everyone!!! What box # is this one pictured above!? I just found out I have box #189! Just wanted to know!!!????

    • Sorry ladies…OMG!!!! That’s my box number for sephora play! How did i get here on Boxycharms page…sorry…new mommy-just had c-section 2wks ago-ENOUGH SAID!!!! Oh boy, just one then days…lol

    • How do you know what box # you have?

    • Wrong question…see response below

  7. Hi everyone!!! What box # is this one pictured above!? I just found out I have box #189! Just wanted to know!!!????

  8. YALL <33
    I'm so pumped for this box! Tarte is my all time fave brand! I cant wait to try these brushes!
    WTG Boxy!

  9. I LOVE Boxycharm! It is an outstanding value. I get 7 Beauty Boxes monthly. If I receive any products I will not use, I have 2 teen nieces who are thrilled to get them. My box is always packed well with no items damaged.

    • what do you do for a living

    • I get 15 sub boxes lmao I am addicted too. We need a club for us sub box junkies lmao

      • 😮😮😮 15?! That’s crazy! I can barely fit ipsy and BoxyCharm into my budget! 15 sub boxes is probably more than my monthly car payment.

      • There’s a group on Facebook called subscription fanatics and we all love sub boxes and have more then one at least lol they post spoilers and stuff and pictures of there boxes

  10. Praying i DO NOT get the red polish or bright pink tint .. any other shade would be nice .. too much red/ pink shades this month for me.. with the polish and tint.. but very much looking forward to the rest 🙂 love the tarte and brushes! hoping i get the other variations xoxo

    • So, am I the only one that’s not subscribed to boxycharm? 😄 i’ve got to pick this box up this month!

      • Subscribe before they start the waitlist again girl!! If you love makeup, you are going to be addicted to this sub!

    • This box looks great…all of it, but now the question remains what are those 2 alternative items that are not shown and which many of us will receive.

      Sigh…why do they do this? I love Boxy and I think I will leave it at that.

  11. Another great month from Boxycharm,no complaints from me.The best subscribtion box out there

  12. So much temptation! I’m getting this month. Makeup overload

  13. This will be my third box and I am so excited for it. So far there hasn’t been a single thing in either of my boxes that I really wanted. This box seems to be filled with only things I want! I hope I get the lip & cheek cream and the nail polish!

  14. Liz,

    Do you if the brushes are full or travel sized?

    Also, what is the thinnest one for? I’m assuming eyes, but which function?

    • They are full sized it seems and the thinnest one looks like a blending brush as it looks to fluffy to be a crease brush.

    • I’ve never received travel sized brushes from Boxycharm 🙂 I think they will be full-sized.

  15. Liz,
    Do you know if the brushes are full size or travel size?

    Also, what is the thin brush for? I assume its for eyes, but which function?

    • Yes, it is for your eyes. I believe it is a crease brush or blending brush for your eye shadow. I for one am very happy because I can never own enough.

    • Looks like a blender brush. Definitely won’t be travel sized though some travel sized brushes would be welcome now since they’ve all be full sized.

    • It’s a foundatiom brush, powder brush, and highlight brush.

      • Thank you, Sisi!

      • Awesome, I was just about to buy a foundation brush now I don’t need to!

        • I heard it was a contour brush and the big fluffy one was a blush brush. I’m sure they’re versatile so you can use them for more than 1 purpose, but that short angled one doesn’t seem ideal for foundation. I could be completely wrong, just looks that way to me.

  16. If I order today, when should I get it and how do they ship? I am on vacation two weeks from tomorrow and dread the thought of my items melting in a UPS, USPS or FedEx warehouse while I’m gone.

    • Have USPS hold your mail. My BoxyCharm is delivered by post office, although, it starts to ship from another mail service.

    • You’re probably fine. Mine almost always come in the second half of the month.

    • I got an email right after I signed up on August 3rd that said the boxes usually arrive the 3rd week of the month. Hope this is helpful to you sweetie!

  17. I signed up last month just so I could get the August Boxy with the Tarte palette. It looks like that’s the only thing from this box that I’ll be interested in. I ended up loving last month’s box though.

    • i feel exactly the same way. Signed up to get Tarte last month, accidentally ended up getting July and surprisingly loved every item.

      • When did you sign up? I just signed up yesterday, do you think I would get the August box?

        • If you signed up yesterday, your getting the August box. As long as there’s no waitlist, the month you sign up is the month you start out with.

  18. Woohoo! BoxyCharm gets me every month! This box is going to be a hard one to top. I hope next month doesn’t suck because we got a kickass box this month.

    Ohh who am I kidding? I love my BoxyCharm every month and haven’t been disappointed yet and I’ve been with them one year this month!

    • Ditto!

  19. Can someone (or Liz if available) tell me how I sign up to swap or how I get there?? I’ve been an active participant here on MSA for a long gun but just now interested in swapping. I appreciate any help! 🙂

    • I would like to know also. I think I’ve been on the waitlist for a year!

    • I haven’t been here that long, but I can’t get in to the forum or swap board.

    • I’m very interested too! I’ve got a lot piling up to swap!

    • Go to the swap area of the board and sign up. It took me less than two weeks to receive an email that I was off the waitlist back at the end of June. Make sure to check your spam folder every once in a while in case the approval email goes there. Mine did. Good luck.

  20. Yay for brushes (I almost bought some earlier last month and then the spoiler came out for this box so I waited) and eye shadow. Boo to eyelashes. Meh to the variant items. I will anxiously await my box arrival and see what my mystery items will be.

    • I’ve gotten several brushes from my Ipsy sub over the past few months. I really like Ipsy to.

  21. Can’t wait! This time, with the last two spoilers, I don’t actually care if I get a variation. Not a big fan of cream blush or Adesse nail polish (too liquidy and takes too many coats for my taste) For those of you wondering, I did ask BoxyCharm and no eyelash glue will be included (which is now obvious from the picture) just FYI. I got some for $3 this afternoon so I am ready to experiment 😀

    • Too funny. I was going to say I wasn’t a fan of Adesse for the opposite reason. Too thick and takes forever to dry because it’s so thick and hard to spread. At least we agree that we don’t like it. I suppose I’ll suck it up though because I’m happy with everything else.

  22. I really want the brushes but not crazy about the rest of the box. Wish the palette was the one with lighter shades.
    This is a wait and see for me. I was disappointed getting the ofra last month but ended up liking it.

    • Me, too! I will never get excited about Boxycharm until I have it in my hands!!

  23. I love it!! Hope i get all these items! 😊👍🏽

  24. I am so excited for this box! I don’t need nail polish so I hope I get something different but I need those brushes and the pallet looks awesome! 🙂

  25. I love nail polish, I just love it so I hope I get this variation. I have no need for fake lashes, I’ve never wore them nor will I, I have been blessed in the eye lash department. This box looks pretty good to me 😉

    • I love polish too. I might have never used false lashes, but I think I will save these as I am getting married in four months and they might come in handy for my wedding day 🙂

  26. I’ll admit, I’m not the biggest bright red nail polish person, but boxes are for trying new things, so why not give it a shot? I’m really hoping for the pinky blush, but honestly, that palette and brushes alone make this worthwhile for me.

    • I’m not a fan of bright red polish, especially for a manicure but it always looks great as a pedicure.

  27. Well I guess we’ve seen both eyelash sets now! I hope I get the one in the last/full spoiler. I’ve never worn falsies, but I’m excited to try. However, my eyelashes are thicker on their own than that first/bottom spoiler.

  28. This is likely he best variation of the box and the one influencers will get. I am really disliking that boxycharm does not release spoilers for all variations of the box.

    • I don’t like receiving nail polish, so this is not a great variation IMO. Pretty much any other item would be more useful because I don’t paint my nails myself.
      So, in this particular case I am actually really looking forward to the variations.

    • Agree!

  29. really, nail polish…

    • Yeah, right?

      But it can’t all be Tarte palettes & fancy brushes 😉

  30. I’ve been looking at these spoilers for days now and I finally gave in. I’ve just subscribed.

    I have no use whatsoever for false lashes or blush, but that palette … oh, that palette. SO pretty.

    • I almost was taken in by the palette, but the awful eviews on Sephora helped me keep my money in my pocket. I never use false eyelashes, they feel so weird and fake on. I have too many polishes as it is. Same with brushes. Forget about that lip cheek paint thing, eeek.

      • Hmmm. Just checked. The reviews I saw on Sephora were actually pretty mixed – some people think the palette is really pigmented and they love it, others think the opposite. Maybe it’s one of those palettes you need to apply with your fingers to get color payoff.

        I just noticed that the cheek tint is also a lip tint. Depending on which of the three colors you get, that could actually be nice for lip color. I prefer a straight lipstick, but if I get the tint in the box, I’ll try to make it work. (Sometimes it doesn’t, though. I got a NYX Whipped Foucette tint that was lovely as a blush, which I never use, but horribly patchy as a lip tint.)

        I think these subscription boxes should be ordered in a spirit of fun and experimentation – otherwise it’s better to just save your money for what you really want. I’ll probably even try the fake lashes eventually … for Halloween. LOL

        • You can’t always trust the Sephora reviews but I’ve never gotten a product by Tarte that I didn’t like. While every color might not be for me I’m sure the quality is there.

        • The NYX worked only as a blush for me too.

        • I love your view on how boxes should be out of fun and to try new things! I see so many people come on here ranting or being extremely picky about their items. I have been building my makeup collection thanks to subscription boxes like Boxycharm and ipsy. I get to try the makeup and decide if I want to purchase it later. Boxycharm has never let me down in the year I have been subscribed!

        • Once you get comfortable with lashes, and it can take a while, but once you are there, you’ll be hooked. Any time your picture might be taken, you’ll want the lashes on. They even make my driver’s license picture look good.

          • What kind of glue would you recommend? I want to give the lashes a chance.

          • I’ve only used Duo, for the drugstore. I’ve heard House of Lashes is the best, but I haven’t tried it yet.

  31. Step 1: Cancel Macy’s box.
    Step 2: Finally give in to Boxycharm because eyeshadow palettes.

    • Ha ha, same here. I was still pending with Macy’s, so glad I didn’t end up with their trash.

    • Omg , did this last night. Seriously sad I did give in earlier. By Play, Glossybox, Macy’s etc….

  32. I really hope I get something else for the last two variant items, but it’s still an amazing box regardless.

  33. wow I hope i get this exact version of the box. Red nail polish is SO my thing! and that cheek stain is everything. yayy

    • It’s not really red. It looks more on the pinkier side if you look at the swatch on their website.

  34. I can’t wait for my first box.. I’m not into makeup too much, but I just had to have that Tarte palette!

  35. Are the variations just in color of item?

    • I’d say most of the time the variations like Liz mentions are possible are completely different brands and products. Like last month you either got the Project Beauty setting spray or the Ofra illumination lotion, and the Winky Lux eyebrow pencil or the Beauty for Real eyeliner.

    • That said, it can also depend on whether or not there are color variations within those products, like there is here. I went back and looked at past months and it’s been a mix. Sometimes it’s variations where there’s another option from the same brand but also an option from a different brand, like there was several months ago when they sent out the Cargo or Allegory Story lip glosses. There were multiple shades of the Cargo that were possible.

  36. Fantastic box BC!!! 😍😍😍 Can’t wait to get mine…

  37. Why why why?

    I really wanted to give up all my makeup subs except for Ipsy. Product overload and then this happens.

    I am so upset I caved.

    Ugh, will power, I must find you!

    However, I am sure that this box will make me feel better when it arrives. 😅

  38. If I get the face tint or the nailpolish I will definitely be putting those two items in swaps, not a big fan but I love the other 3 items so it more than makes us for those two.

  39. Although the colour is very pretty, I hope I get neither the nail polish or the face paint. That being said, would not complain about either. Unless I get the peachy face paint. Then I’d be pissed. I’ve had pretty decent luck with BC.

    Polish will be gifted most likely the face paint too if it’s not a match for me.

    The only things I care about are that palette & the brushes.

    • I need that palette and happy with the brushes. I’d be good with nail polish, even. If I get the face paint, it will be swapped or gifted. I’m still debating on if I want to try the lashes or not. I’m not into falsies. I wouldn’t be mad at any of it tho. The palette & brushes is good enough to make me not worry about the 2 varied items. 🙂

      • Absolutely!

  40. Really hard not to order…Stay strong…stay strong…

  41. Big Brouhaha on FB about •Aloette Face Paint Lip & Cheek Tint – Value $35 (Possible variant item).

    Someone from the company put it out there that this was the “focus” item of the month and everyone was getting it. Then the head of Boxycharm said no they aren’t. Might be the last you see of this brand in their boxes. That said I hope I don’t get it. Don’t like cream blush at all.

    • Ooooohhhh, DRAMA!!

  42. I love the forst three spoilers. Tarte is a great brand, and I am happy to be getting a pallet from them. I like the variation of the brushes. I am always getting blush brushes in my bags/boxes so these are an exciting variety.

    I wouldn’t use the other two items. I am hoping to get off the SWAP waitlist soon so I can SWAP some of the items I don’t use. This website has gotten me very additcted to these boxes. MUST have them ALL!

    • I love tarte too I can’t wait to get my box 🤗

  43. Omg I am so excited for it all. I have never worn lashes. Don’t even know how to apply them. But hey I’ll give anything a go.. Once!

    • Walgreens has this lash kit for beginners to help you learn. It’s like 7 bucks. They probably have it at Walmart, CVS, etc. It has a set of lashes, glue, tiny scissors for trimming, measuring guide, and the curved tweezer-like tool to apply them. This helped me understand what to do before trying higher priced lashes. I am almost sure the kit is by the brand Kiss.

  44. I really hope I get this box- no variants! It looks fantastic! Yayyyy Boxycharm!

  45. I am very excited about this month’s box. This is one of the best in awhile. I’ve liked some of the others but I love this one. They could have squeezed another Ofra in Metallic Chocolate Brown in there too and I’d be tickled pink. Great box. Can’t wait to get it. Hope it’s before the end of the month. Last month’s was much later than usual.

    • I hope so too! I have been getting mine around the 25th or so. I am going on vacation the 28th, and I hope I get it before I leave!

    • I just looked up the ofra metallic brown- it’s called “coven”. You are right! It’s gorgeous! Now i want one too!!!

  46. I can’t find any swatches of the Aloette face paint online. Is Aloette an MLM that’s paying Boxycharm to include their products in this box? That would explain why they were able to get the Tarte palette in every box.

    • It is an MLM according to google… hmmm that’s strange. Would have expected boxy to not be interested in those products

      • Someone explain what this all means. What is MLM?

        • MLM is a marketing strategy in which the sales force is compensated not only for sales they personally generate, but also for the sales of others they recruit, creating a downline of distributors and a hierarchy of multiple levels of compensation.


        • MLM is Mulit Level Marketing. The general structure of MLM companies is that products are sold through “consultants” who buy a starter kit of the products and then sell them via door-to-door sales, individual websites, social media, etc. It’s like Avon circa Edwards Scissorhands *Avon Calling!**

          I tend to not like MLM structures as I feel like it really takes advantage of the “consultants”. It requires upfront money that you may or may not get a return on investment with. Plus, Aloette charges their consultants $15/mo to host individual web pages and various fees (~$40-$70) for classes, etc. They pay commission but it seems very vague and possibly not legit imo.

          Overview of their company:

          From their website:

        • Multi Level Marketing. Pyramid scam.

    • if you go to their site, it shows 3 colors with swatches available. just click on it from here by the photos. i just did it and they are really pretty! I hope i get one!

    • Yup, they are an MLM, which kind of bummed me out. I’m not a fan of that type of business as it feels like a major scam. I know this isn’t fair but for some reason I tend to associate MLM cosmetic companies with lower quality products (save for maybe Avon back in the day).

      • You are right. They usually are pyramid schemes and the sellers end up screwed.

      • Agreed, I don’t like it when subscription boxes include MLM products. Especially if each box comes with a pamphlet encouraging subscribers to sign up to be a rep. It feels exploitative.

    • That would explain the retail value being so high. When I was the cost I thought- $35 for facepaint?

  47. Boxy is one of the best subs I’m always happy with my box with that said I hope I get the face paint 😊

  48. This box looks absolutely amazing! I can’t wait to get mine.

  49. I think this is my favorite month ever with BC! Love everything in it!

  50. Wow, nice box! I honestly don’t need anymore brushes or makeup at this time or I would jump on this deal!!
