BoxyCharm Subscription Box Review – October 2017

This post may contain referral/affiliate links. If you buy something, MSA may earn a commission. Read the full disclosure.

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

Check out all of my BoxyCharm reviews and the Beauty Subscription Box Directory!

Each box comes with a card detailing the items included.

Now, time for the items!

Dr. Brandt PoreDermabrasion – Value $58

(All subscribers will receive this item. Good to know for swapping – this item has an inner foil seal.)

Dr. Brandt makes amazing exfoliators, and I’m always happy to see this brand in subscription boxes. Unlike the Age Defying exfoliator, this scrub has a very subtle mint scent, and the scrubbing particles are a little finer.

I can’t get over how smooth this exfoliator makes my skin feel – if you haven’t sampled this yet, you are in for a treat!

Tarte Tarteist™ Quick Dry Matte Lip Paint in Delish – Value $20

(All subscribers will receive this item in one of eight shades.)

A quick drying matte lipstick from tarte? Yes, please!

And bonus, I LOVE this color! The formula is really lightweight, but it dries quickly, and it is mostly smudge proof immediately. And the pigment is fab, too.

(Swatched in lower photo.)

Jonteblu Lip Liner Pencil in Brown Sugar – Value $5

(This is a possible variant item. Not all subscribers may receive this. Colors will vary.)

When I first saw this color in the spoilers I assumed it would be way too dark for me, but it actually goes on in a shade that works with the tarte lip paint!

It looks brown in the pencil, but it really looks like more of a dark berry shade when I tried it on. Here it is swatched beneath the lip paint:

And that third item swatched is this highlighter:

Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter in Prosecco Pop – Value $38

All subscribers will either receive this pressed powder Becca highlighter or the Becca Liquid Highlighter Prosecco Pop.)

The Prosecco Pop color is a warm gold highlighter and it is packed with shimmer and pigment! This is one of those highlighters that will last me FOREVER! You just need one quick swipe of a brush to get all the highlight you need. And it blends out easily, too.

(If you got the liquid highlighter in your box, please let us know how the formula holds up!)

NcLA X Boxycharm Nailed It Tool Kit – Value $18

(This is a variant item. Not all subscribers will receive this. Check out our Boxycharm October spoilers to see other options you may receive.)

I received this kit in red last year thanks to POPSUGAR and it has really come in handy, so I have no problem having an extra one!

And I appreciate that this case zips completely closed – no need to worry about anything slipping out in your purse. And these tools are good quality, too.

Verdict: This box has a value of about $139! As always, the value for Boxycharm is amazing! And every item ended up being a hit for me, too! (It was weird not having a full arm of swatches, though – I’m used to a palette in almost every box!)

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.)

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? Possibly. Boxycharm is in waitlist mode, so I recommend signing up ASAP. They’ll email you when your first box ships, so you’ll know which box you’ll be getting as your first month.

Coupon – No coupons at this time.

Value Breakdown: At $21 for this box, here’s what you are paying approximately per item:

  • Dr. Brandt: $8.76
  • Tarte: $3.02
  • Lip Liner: $.75
  • Becca: $5.74
  • NCLA Kit: $2.72

  1. I just received my box and I got the same as you Liz, except for the tarte lipstick I got homeslice which I will definately wear 🙂 I’m always impressed with Boxycharm!

  2. Lovelovelove the Becca pressed highlighter. just a wee bit here and there and I’m SET. Also, I didn’t get the nail kit – got a very pretty rose-gold eyeshadow.

    Swatched the lip paint. UGH! so not my color. May put it up for swap or $$. haven’t decided whether it’s worth the pain in the butt to do such things. But I don’t actually have any close friends for whom this color might work. let me know if “get it” works for you!

    AND it is not at ALL smudge proof “pretty much immediately,” and it turned like a faded pumpkin orange on my cool-toned skin. Not so good — for me, that is

    • I also don’t like the lip product I got! It’s the Tarte one in color Homeslice. Quick question. Is there an app you use to swap? I’m new to Boxycharm and I know in the future I’m bound to get a couple products I won’t want.

      • I’m on a fb group. I think it’s called BoxyCharmers?

      • Try for swaps – you may be put on the waitlist but its worth it in the end

    • What color did you get for the tarte because I don’t like the color I got either.

    • I got Pillow Talk for the tarte if you’re looking to trade!

  3. Had to unsubscribe after I got last months box. I just couldn’t see myself using anything in this months box. I have the Dr Brandt and I never get a shade of lipstick I like and I have way to many highlighters liquid and powder I have base eyeshadow sticks by the handful and I have a lot of lip liner and I don’t need anymore nail kits. I’ll see the rest of next months products and if anything peeks my interest I’ll go for it. If I’m on a wait list that’s okay. But if I didn’t have way to much of the Dr Brandt product I would totally love this box. I have about 4 bottles of the Dr Brandt. I like the eyeshadow palette but it’s not peeking interest yet. If their was First Aid Beauty or Farmacy I would be in.

  4. This is the first box that I’ve really been disappointed with. I was really hoping to get the pressed powder and nail kit, but ended up with the liquid highlighter and the cream shadow stick. I was also hoping for a lip color that I could work with, but Pillowtalk looks like I smeared a really fair concealer all over my lips or ate something with a crap ton of powdered sugar on it. I’ll admit that I’m a bit frustrated that as someone with oily skin and medium skin tone, Boxycharm missed the mark on both of those fronts, especially since we fill out a profile.

    • I got the same box as you and I am disappointed as well! I really wanted that powder highlighter and for some reason was really surprised to get the liquid one! LOL! I think the only thing I will use in the Dr. Brandt.

    • Where do you fill out a profile because I didn’t have to when I signed up

  5. I received my box yesterday, it includes:

    – Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Liquid Highlighter (I’m ghostly pale redhead so not sure I can use this, but nice brand for sure)
    – dr Brandt Pore dermabrasion
    – dirty little secrets eyeshadow chubby in illusion
    – jonteblu lipliner in 955 spice (not sure on this color but will give it a try)
    – Tarte tarteist lip paint in pillowyalk 😟😶 this lip color is SOOOOO disappointing, I cannot use a lip color that gives me no color, was so excited for this item and hoped for the color Liz got with the matching lip liner, so very disappointed on this item, if by some miracle someone wants to swap for Delish please email me 🙏🏻😊

  6. GUYS…… My jaw is on the floor. While this box is an AMAZING deal and I am beyond happy about what I received ESPECIALLY for 21 bucks, but omg….. I held up my Dr. Brandt to the light to see how full it is, and it is literally 1/3 full. I have two subs so I immediately checked both and they’re BOTH like that. I’d be HEATED if I paid 50 something for a 1/3 full bottle of product, but luckily that isn’t the case. I literally just got blown away by that. Am I the only one!?

    • Totally agree mine was like that too from both subscriptions this month. I was really shocked! Not only that but it’s a smaller bottle anyway! I was going to gift one of them to my sister but think I need both now just to get a full size!

  7. My box was .6 and contained:
    Tarteist lip paint in salty
    Jonteblu liner in spice
    Dr. Brandt
    Dirty little secrets chubby stick
    Becca powdered highlighter

    I was stoked about this box when I opened it even though i have 3 of the Dr. Brandt from previous boxes (I think I’ll gift this one). Salty is a very light color similar to the candyxtoo faced melted ice cream which I got recently. It actually looks fantastic with the spice liner and is great for doing ombré lip looks by placing it in the center of any color. The formula is bomb and I love the doe foot applicator. I was happy to get the chubby I already have a nail kit from another box and I get my nails done so it’s not for me. The chubby is great for highlight, inner eye and brow bone. I was so upset when I opened my highlighter though, it was shattered. I contacted cs and they said they are out of them so they gave me charms. Getting charms is awesome in theory then I can pick something I really want and I remember them having great stuff previously. Right now though all they have is a pencil sharpener and a clear plastic bag. So lame. Anyone know when they update charms? Or are they just giving me something useless in place of the best box item 😩

    • They add items to the charm shop every month that I have been a subscriber (July till now) but the stuff sells out within a few hours. Check their website every morning if you really want to redeem them. Good luck!

    • Just use some rubbing alcohol on the highlighter. Mash up the powder. Add like a table spoon or a little more of rubbing alcohol to make a paste of the highlight and then just let it sit out until it’s solid. I do it all the time to fix cracks.

  8. Got mine today!
    Dr Brandt poredermabrasion
    Becca pressed highlighter
    Tarte Lip Paint “get it!”
    Dirty Little Secrets chubby “illusion”
    Jonteblu lip liner 955 “spice”

    Happy with it!

  9. My boxycharm just arrived at my house, I am very happy with the Variation I got. i got the Becca Liquid highlighter, dirty little secret eye shadow in illusion, tarte in salty, which i am pretty sure i could use as a base, if i dont like it a solo lippie. and the lip liner in spice. Dr. Brandt products are awesome and really loving its included in this box.

    Boxycharm is never disappointing to me and i cant wait for next months!

  10. Macy’s has a 10 Days of Glam event that started today, and earlier today they were selling the Tarte Lip Paint for $10. Too bad I just saw it – it’s already sold out.

  11. This is my first box and I’m not that excited. I was hoping for the Becca liquid highlighter as I don’t like the pressed powder. Way too much glitter for my taste. If anyone wants to swap, let me know. Not a huge fan of liquid lipsticks, but I love Tarte so I’m looking forward to trying it, along with the lip liner. I wasn’t all that thrilled by the eyeshadow stick till I swatched it. I think it will work great as a base or inner corner highlight, but again nothing amazing.

    I will try one more box and then I will probably cancel.

    • It depends, really, on what you are looking for in a sub and how much you already have. My stash at this point, of both makeup and skincare, is so enormous that it would take me years to use it up. So it’s quite difficult for me to get excited about anything, really. Well, it’s obviously better to receive colors that suit me than those that don’t, etc, but the truth is I don’t need any of it anyway.

      I am giving myself until the end of this year to unsub from everything, and then I think I’ll be done.

      • I’m having the same issue. I don’t know how so many women can sub to a dozen boxes. I had 4 a month plus fff and I’m down to boxycharm and beautyfix and it’s still way too much. I’ve debated about cutting boxycharm too, can’t use makeup as quickly as skin care. But then I worry I’ll miss something!

  12. i received my box today and once again I got this very same box listed above down to the delish lip shade. I like the shade and brand but I am a little over all the matte so I’ll put some balm over this. The liner does work well with the shade of lip that I received so that will work fine for a fall shade for me. The shimmer highlighter looks pretty but I’ll be honest I don’t use a lot of highlighter I think it’s a little too much for everyday so this will last me until the end of time. I am excited to try out the Dr Brandt, I love skin care. Meh on the nail kit but I’m sure I will use it. This was an okay box for me but hey they can’t all be Septembers.

  13. I’m really disappointed with the October variation I received. In my box I had the
    -dr. Brandt
    -becca skin perfector liquid
    -tarte lipstick in pillow talk
    -eye shadow chubby in illusion
    -lip liner in spice

    I’ve used this Dr. Brandt product and found it to be ok. The eye shadow chubby is a pretty shade but it’s a cream and won’t last on my oily skin for longer than 10 min. Same problem with the Becca shimmering slin perfector. The trate lipstick is this AWFUL light pink/peach. Olor that clashes with my skin in a very unflattering way. The lip liner is a brown color?????? I guess not for use with this lipstick, because when I tried them together it looked hideous. Oh, and as a cherry on top the lip liner pencil already smells like a rancid lipstick that needs to be tossed.

    I’m really disappointed with this box. I don’t understand why they have you take a quiz if they are just going to through a box together without consulting skin type, skin color, etc.

    • Cam, I got the exact same items and colors as you and the chubby stick works fine as an eyeshadow base for my oily lids, just like a NYX shadow stick. And I agree, that brown lipliner with that awful nude lip color was hideous together, and I doubt I’ll use either one separately. But stoked for next month’s Boxy.

  14. Got mine today.

    * Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Liquid Highlighter – really wanted the powder. A little goes a long way but the liquid really smells.

    *Dr Brandt Poredermabrasion

    * Tarte Tarteist Quick Dry Lip Paint in XOXO – LOVE the color!

    *DLS Eyeshadow Cubby in Illusion – It’s great but I was hoping for the manicure kit just because my husband really wanted it, lol. He was actually upset I didn’t get it.

    Jonteblu Lip Liner Pencil in Rich Red – Love the formula, color and price. When I run out, I have no problem “splurging” on another

    All in all, I am really happy. I was disappointed no palette this month, but since we’re getting one next month, no worries.

  15. Got mine yesterday. Severe box envy for those who got the powder, though I’ll try the liquid of course. And the lip paint is an awful nude shade but I’ll try using it as a base for another color…please Box Gods, no more liquid matte lip products.

    • I bet if you mixed your liquid lip color with the lip liner and a bit of gloss or lip balm, it would make a pretty pink color.

    • Of I get it another light tan. or grey liquid lip I will scream….I wear lipcolor for just that…color…

      • That’s If…not Of…lol

  16. There’s a lot of differences in weights. I normally don’t look. Mine is .6 lbs, .27 kgs…so many variables, or maybe not. It’s always a gamble that we take. 🙂

    • Mine was .07 Ibs. and I was box twins with Liz. It’s a great box! Really love Boxycharm!

  17. I got my October box today and am STOKED! The value is $138! I won’t lie, I kinda wanted the nail kit but got the chubby eye shadow stick instead. Never use those things, but am excited to try! I was also hoping for the Becca powder and got the liquid instead. I only wanted to powder as I am inexperienced with the liquid, but I am gonna learn it! This is my second box and, even though I literally JUST received my Sept. box due to shipping issues, I am not disappointed or displeased.

    • Hi Carol! This is my first box and I’m very excited about it. Do you know how much your box weighed?

      • Hey Shan! FedEx indicated .7 lbs / .32 kgs. I hope you love yours as much as I love mine!!

  18. I just got this exact box this morning and I’m thrilled! Any variation would have been welcome. Becca is one of my favorite brands abs the highlighter is magic.

    • I was worried that the powder would be drying and settle into fine lines…. I was hoping for the liquid so I could mix into face creams or foundations, but this is a great powder formula that is absolutely magic! Sometimes we just need to give it a try. I’m glad I did!

    • Got my box today, didnt get a nail kit, but instead a DIRTY LITTLE SECRETS eyeshadow chubby. in color Illusion,

  19. I received this exact box! I was hoping for the Becca liquid but the powder will be worth a try and it looks like it will last forever! Love the Tarte liquid lip in Delish! This is the perfect color for fall and the lip pencil matches it so well!

  20. I’m looking to swap the Becca Liquid for the powder and the Tarte lip color. I got Salty and would trade for delish. This box was a waste on me this month. Only thing I can use is the microdermabration.

  21. Well, it finally happened. I got a box that to me is total garbage. The lip paint in pillowtalk is basically the color of a ghost’s rear end. The lip liner is brown. The liquid HL won’t work for my oily skin. The microdermabrasion stuff burnt my face whenI tried it and the eyeshadow stuff is “just ok”. I hope next month is better, because this was all a fail to me.

    • You and I got the same box. I’m dry skin, so the liquid highlighter and eye crayon work for me, but pillow talk is the most godawful shade. I thought the undead zombie colored colourpop last month was the worst, but pillow talk makes me long to wear undead zombie. Any of the other colors would have worked on me. I have several Tarte liquid lips, and was thrilled to get any other color. This year, I’ve gotten one wearable lip color from the box, and that was the deep wine Ofra one. Wish there was a way I could tell the Boxy gods that I like a dark lip.

    • No nail kit? ☹️

      • I went back and read there was a variation.

    • LOL. I just got this variation too and I also have oily skin so I was kind of bummed about the liquid Becca but I’ll try to mix it with liquid foundations I guess. As far as the Tarte in Pillowtalk, I agree that it doesn’t work AT ALL on it’s own but when I put it on top of some lippes I had that were just a bit too dark for my liking (I’m my own shade of ghost already) it worked out great. So that’s probably how I’ll use it.

      • Has anyone tried to use the liquid highlighter on the undereye area?

        • I just tried it as a highlighter on my nose and cheeks, then gently patted it under my eyes – it’s fabulous! It looks really nice, just kind of brightens up the area, no caking or settling into fine lines and that is even with concealer that I applied this morning. I’m glad I decided to keep this, I almost put it up for swap.

          • Yeah, that’s what I immediately thought it would be good for when I first saw the spoilers, even if you don’t use highlighters normally.

        • That’s an awesome idea!! I have dark circles so I could use all the help I can get. You’re a genius! Thanks!!!

          • Aww, thank you, I try. 😄

  22. I got my box yay! But I got the liquid highlighter, if any one wants to trade for the powder lmk 😀

    • I would trade! I’m also looking to trade my lip color. I got Salty and just like last month the color is disgusting on me! Let me know

  23. Got mine today! I got the powder highlight which I wanted so I’m super happy about that and I got the eyeshadow which is very pretty. I don’t like the Tarte color I got but I’m so happy about the powder I don’t care

    • What is the shadow? Is that a variation of the nail kit?

      • I read the post and it is.

  24. Mine came today, I got the liquid highlighter which I wanted and my tarte lippie is xoxo (a red) and the lip liner matches (a red)! so that works for me. 🙂

  25. Mine weighs .5. Hoping for the powder highlighter, otherwise the liquid will go to my nieces.

  26. Whereas I think ALL of the items in the October box are great, I’m afraid I will not be able to use any of them, save for the Dr. Brandt’s. The HIGHLIGHT is far too dark for my fair-medium complexion, the lipstick (if history is any judge) will also be far more than I can handle, as will be the lipliner. Then we come to the eyeshadow stick or nail kit. Well, the nail kit would be a useful addition to my purse, but the eyeshadow stick will sadly go unused. A funny position, but even though I think the items are great…they are just NOT great for me. C’est la vie!

    • I feel the same way. I’m hoping the highlighter works with my skin but I’m an nc25. I could see using the liquid highlighter under foundation though, so hopefully we get the liquid!

    • If you are too fair to use it as a highlighter, then it should be the perfect shimmery eyeshadow shade for you. 🙂

    • I’m a light-skinned ginger, and the liquid highlighter was not too dark for me. It worked well for a more subtle highlight than the powder, but I’m pleasantly surprised that I really like it. I got the pillow talk lip, so it’s going to my daughter. She put it on, and it’s gorgeous on her.

    • Don’t give up on the powder highlighter just yet! I am extremely pale and it blends out beautifully. Not dark at all.

  27. Becca is such a fabulous brand. I can not wait!!! I don’t know if I want the compact or liquid more. Both look and sound wonderful

  28. I skipped this month, but forgot to cancel till after the 1st. I may get next months’ if it looks good. This month’s I didn’t want, maybe a gift for a makeup friend of mine instead.

  29. Why do you get boxes before everyone else?

    • Sometimes subscription box companies send us boxes early so that we can post reviews sooner, and help readers decide if they want to subscribe, see swatches before opening/testing products, etc.

      Hope that helps! 🙂

    • I received my box on the 6th… 😬

      • Yeah my tracking number says it was delivered today (the 10th). Sometimes it just comes really early I suppose.

  30. I’m really excited about this month’s box. I love the Tartiest Lip Paints, and I’m really hoping I receive the liquid Becca. I’ve had so many nail kits that I’ve given some away, so that doesn’t interest me. Even so, BoxyCharm gives its subscribers top-notch goodies in every box.

    • If you get the powder highlight, I don’t think you’ll have any trouble trading for the liquid if you want to. Seems like the majority of people (including me) are hoping for the powder.

  31. I haven’t even gotten a shipping confirmation yet. 🙁

    Although last month I received my box without the email.

  32. When does the box ship? I think I got mine mid month in September, but can’t remember? Going on a trip the 12th and would love to have it by then ❤️

    • I just got my shipping notification today which is a first… i usually just get in the mail.

  33. I hope I get this exact box love the lip color Delish I have two boxy subs so fingers crossed

  34. Hoping for Becca liquid. If I get the powder I’ll be looking for someone to trade with.

    • I want the powder, so if I get the liquid, I’m happy to trade.

      • My box weight is .7lbs. I’m guessing I’ll get it end of this week or early next. I’ll check back when I know.

      • I got my box today and I got the liquid. Hope you got the powder!

  35. I’m excited! While I love love love the palettes, everything here is a great brand and high quality. Hoping for a rose coloured lippie, and not a fan of the matte look – but I’ll make it work! Dr. Brandt is awesome and I’ll happily hoard those $58 tubes from boxy and beauty fix this month.

  36. Thanks for reviewing the October Boxy Charm! For everybody anxious to get off of the waiting list go visit some of the Boxy charm swap pages on Facebook where you will be able to purchase all of these products from current subscribers.

  37. I would love to know more about where all the products are made along with the value of the box. I’ve noticed so many boxes have products made in China. Where as if you get the Macy’s box for example you know all your products are high-quality. Just something to think about. Like all the Doucce stuff from China is poor quality no matter what the value stated

    • Tarte, Dr. Brandt, Becca and NCLA? You’re questioning the quality of those brands? Wow.

      • Hmmmm. I never mentioned any of those brands. Not sure what you are saying. But thanks for taking it the wrong way

        • To be fair, I took it the same way, since you were questioning the products in this box, and those are the products. Anyway, not a big deal, nothing to be upset about. It’s just a comment on a blog. Knowing where it’s made can be indicative of quality, but it is also incredibly misleading. Prison made, us territory in another country, etc, so can see why that isn’t something they take into account. Boxy is pretty good quality-wise, but if this is very important to you, there are quite a few sub boxes marketed as being made in the us.

        • Actually, you did state ‘I Would love to know where all the products are made’. You insinuate that you are talking about the products in the Boxycharm sub this month. Ann was merely surprised that you would question the quality of the items included this month in this variation. Those of us who have been subscribers for awhile or have experience with various products will tell you all of these are good quality products. It doesn’t mean it may be right for you, but it is good quality. I don’t think it is necessary to be rude. Also, Liz puts the retail value of the products in her reviews and then typically breaks down the cost of the box in relationship to what you paid for it. As for the Macy’s subscription box, I think it is over-priced and under-whelming with the same old stuff I have seen in better boxes. Just one subscribers opinion. Glad you are happy with it.

    • Doucce was in Allure wasn’t it? And while I think Macy’s is ok, last month we got Burt’s bees, drugstore brand. 🙄

    • I always want to know when a brand is made in China too. Sometimes they’ll say PRC

      I understand what you mean. I just do not want products from China anymore either. Not just cosmetics but any items. The regulations arent the same.

    • I get what you are saying.
      There are many brands in beauty boxes I have never heard of. I always check out their website & what they are about. Indie brands, all natural, etc I have been introduced to many brands I do like.
      Did someone mention you can SKIP a month? I never knew that.
      October Box is not that great. But hoping to get th Becca powder .

  38. I’m excited for the tarte lippie! I’ve never tried any of them. I hope I get a different color though.

  39. Can you include your box weight?

  40. Mine just shipped with weight 0.7 lbs / 0.32 kgs

    • Have you got your box yet? Mine weighs the same as yours, hoping it means I got the liquid highlighter 🙂

      • Received my box today.

        Powder highlighter…YAY!!!
        Tarte in bestie….hor-ri-ble horrible shade on me
        dls crayon in illusion….okay
        Dr Brandt….good to have a backup
        Jonteblu….smells rancid. May be the wood I’m smelling

        My box weighed 0.7 lbs 0.27 kgs

  41. I skipped this month looks like a good box. Maybe if I need something in next month’s box I’LL resub.

  42. I’m getting my first BoxyCharm this month. Thanks for the review – I’m really looking forward to getting my box! 😉

    • Hey! I subscribed for Boxy on September 26 but I’m on the wait list. Were you waitlisted too? How long?

      • there is no way of telling where you are the waitlist… if you subscribed today give it a few days but if you dont get an email by then it will be november

      • Hi! I subscribed Sept 11th, got off the waitlist Oct 1st. Hope you get your subscription soon!

  43. This is a nice solid box. Nothing really wows me in the box, but I like and will use all. I think I’m looking forward to the Tarte lippie the most.

  44. A nice box I think the lack of makeup items is probably a good thing because we’ll be that much more happy to see them next time! Boxy is really a great sub for these bigger items.

  45. The price breakdown really puts this sub’s value in perspective. Even if you don’t love everything it’s so worth it!

  46. I don’t really care which variation I get, except maybe the tarte color, but my husband called dibs on the manicure kit if that’s what I get, lol. This month is just kind of meh for me compared to the last few months but I am looking forward to the Becca and the Dr Brandt.

  47. Wow! I would love to get exactly the same variation(s) that Liz did–but any box with Dr. Brandt and Becca is a huge win in my book 😀

  48. I’m dying to get off the waitlist…. meh.

    • Me too! I may just cancel if I do not get off the list soon!

      • Me three. I wanted the SEPTEMBER box and joined back then. Waitlisted. Still waitlisted. I’ll be bummed if I don’t get octobers box!

  49. Looks like value breakdown is off.

    • Oops! Decimal point added – thank you! 🙂

  50. Liz, um, I think the value breakdown went sideways, math-wise…

    Dr. Brandt: $8.76
    Tarte: 43.02
    Lip Liner: $.75
    Becca: $5.74
    NCLA Kit: $272

    That’s one super-luxe nail kit…

    • Whoops! Forgot an important decimal point 🙂

      • You also paid twice the box price for the tarte.

        • Oh wow that 4 should have been a $ – I’m really off today. Sorry and thank you!

          • It made me giggle and I needed a good laugh for a silly reason today. So, thank YOU!
