BoxyCharm Subscription Box Review – September 2017
BoxyCharm is a full-size beauty and makeup subscription box. They always provide a great value compared the cost of the box. (If you are a makeup addict – I HIGHLY recommend this box!)
This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
The Subscription Box: BoxyCharm
The Cost: $21 a month
The Products: 5-6 beauty items that will include nail care, skin care, makeup, haircare, fragrance and more. (At least 4 of those items will be full-sized).
Ships to: US and Canada
Each box comes with a card detailing the items included.
Now, time for the items!
MAC Cosmetics Eyebrow Pencil in Lingering – Value $18
(All subscribers will receive this item in the shades spiked or lingering)
MAC products in subscription boxes are VERY rare – so this is a great start to the box! (And full-size MAC, too!) This shade is a “soft taupe brown,” and on the cool side. The pencil design makes it super easy to apply and creates feathered strokes, and I love that it is self-propelling/sharpening!
(And the pigment is ideal for a brow pencil. Swatched in lower photo.)
ColourPop Ultra Satin Lip in Strip – Value $6
(All subscribers will receive this item. Shade may vary.)
I wasn’t sure about this color in the tube, but it actually ended up being a very wearable neutral for me! (Swatched in lower photo.)
And I love the ColourPop Satin Lip formula – it has an almost matte finish, with excellent pigment and amazing stay power!
Studio Makeup Luminous Loose Blush – Value $35
(This item is a variant item. You may receive a different Studio Makeup item. We’ve also seen the Studio Makeup HD Setting Powder as a possible variant.)
This is a warm peachy pink blush that is heavily pigmented. It has a matte finish with just a hint of shimmer/sparkle. It’s really wearable shade for me, too!

PUR Cosmetics Soiree Diaries Eyeshadow Palette – Value $34
(All subscribers will receive this item.)
Boxycharm is known for sending palettes in boxes, and I love them for it! This set of warm neutrals includes 8 mattes and 4 shimmers. The pigment is excellent throughout, and the shimmers are stunning!
Here are the shimmers and the 4 darkest matte shades swatched beneath the eyebrow pencil, the satin lip, and the blush:
And here are the 4 lightest shades:
I’m used to lighter colored shadows not matching up in pigment compared to darker shadows in palettes, but these ones hold their own!
bareMinerals Perfecting Face Brush – Value $28
I wear liquid foundation and I apply it directly to my face then buff in with a stippling makeup brush. But this changes the game! It has a built-in little reservoir to hold your liquid foundation! The bristles are SO soft, too! (I saw some MSA readers mention that they had issues with BareMinerals bristles falling out, but I haven’t had any issues so far.)
Briogeo Don’t Despair Repair Hair Mask – 2 oz Value $18
(This item may be in all boxes or may be a variant – not known yet.)
This mask is free of parabens, sulfates, and phthalates – and it is safe for color treated hair!
There are two ways to use this mask – let it sit on your hair for 5-10 minutes after massaging it into your roots, then rinse out. Or for deeper hydration, cover your hair with a plastic shower cap and sit under a dryer, applying direct heat for 30 minutes, then rinse.
I tried the 5-10 minute version, and I could definitely feel a difference in the softness of my hair after using it.
Verdict: This box has a value of about $139! As always, the value for Boxycharm is amazing! (And based on the different variation spoilers, it looks like there is only an $8 value different in possible August boxes so far.)
I think Boxycharm is a perfect subscription for people who love makeup. You’re going to get a lot of palettes, highlighters, etc., so it’s great if you want to build your collection and try all the things! (If you only need one highlighter/palette in your makeup arsenal, this might not be the best box for you.)
