Wow! This palette is beautiful guys. And pretty big too! I love the chic cream palette’s minimal styling and the embossing on the powders. It contains 2 highlighters, a contour shade, a finishing powder, and a pretty blush! Both highlighters have a beautiful sheen and I love that they included both a warmer and cooler shade. The brightener is super subtle and gives that moon-kissed touch that we all love. The contour powder is a little warm for me, but if I use it lightly it works, and after a few days of sun this spring it will likely be an even better compliment. The blush is a cheerful pink that looks like one I would have chosen for myself. The finishing powder is a real star here too with its micro-shimmer and beautiful finish. Each of these powders is very pigmented and super smooth. This one palette will be replacing quite a few items in my on the go kit.

Wander Beauty Lift Off Purifying and Brightening Peel Off Mask – Retail Value $34.00

All subscribers will receive this item.

I am loving the rose+rose gold theme happening this month! This pretty rose gold shimmering mask smells super clean and a little tart. It dried on my skin in about 15 minutes and peeled off easily in a shimmery rose sheet. It did kind of hurt me to pull it off closer to my delicate under eye skin and on my cheekbones. In hindsight, this probably shouldn’t have been so close to my eyes and as for the rest of my face, I could probably benefit from some dermaplaning. I was pleasantly surprised at how soft and supple my skin felt after peeling off the papery dried mask. This formula contains acai, goji berry, blueberry, lychee, mangosteen, and green tea extracts, and helped my skin feel more smooth and look brighter. If you have dry skin like me, I recommend following up with your fave serum and a good moisturizer.

Gosh, these are pretty! I am living for these rose gold products! I don’t own many brushes, but what I can’t live without is a blush brush. I have had mine for quite some time and I am long overdue for a replacement. This box couldn’t have come at a better time! The blush brush has synthetic bristles a little less dense than my old one, but I tend to be a little heavy-handed with blush, so this might be a good thing! The highlighter brush is longer and less dense but works like a charm with the powder highlighters sent in the palette above. Both have smooth, thick, rose gold handles that feel so glamorous and are also waterproof! They make a very pretty addition to my little vanity.

OFRA Liquid Lipstick in Monaco – Retail Value $20.00

All subscribers will receive this or an ORYZA BEAUTY Lipgloss. 

This pretty cool pink liquid lipstick is a great shade for trying out the chrome lip trend that is so happening right now. It is basically the chrome version of my daily dirty pink shade. The finish is kind of matte but is also satin, and I much prefer this feel to a true matte. It stays put for hours but still has some transfer. It is a nice medium pink shade with a pink metallic finish. I love this look with a clean but dewy face, glossy eyelid, and a subtle highlight.

AppealCosmetics Liquid Eyeshadow in Rose Gold – Retail Value $21.00

All subscribers will receive this item or a Manna Karad Mascara.

This is a very interesting eyeshadow! It is much more of a golded gold than a rose gold but is slightly sheer. You could easily blend this straight after application for a more subtle take on this bright true metallic. You would need to blend it pretty fast, as it dried completely and it then stuck in place until you remove it with a makeup remover. This dry down does make it possible to use as a really lovely liquid eyeliner. I don’t generally wear eye products like this, but I might just try it as a super thin liner. I feel like it would add a ton of brightness to my eyes.

Verdict: I am a little obsessed with this rose-themed Boxycharm box. I really appreciate when a box sets a theme and sticks to it with high quality and wonderfully curated item choices. I really love every single item in this box, but if I had to pick a favorite, it would be the palette. I also love the metallic lipstick and the brushes are divine! The liquid eyeshadow will be a new toy to experiment with, and the feel was really effective and felt luxurious with its rose shimmer. The retail value of this box is $149.99 which is an awesome value for a $21.00 box!

I love natural/vegan beauty products, Korean skincare, unique jewelry, and weird candies from far away places. When I am not waiting for my next exciting box you can find me painting or taking photographs of interesting people. I never leave home without pug hair somewhere on my shirt and a bold lipstick on my smile.

  1. I got this exact box and I’m OBSESSED with everything in it. The lip color is gorgeous and subtle on, the eyeshadow adds just enough color without any glitter fallout, and the brushes are so soft.

    • Me too 😊 mine arrived yesterday and I’m very happy with the variations I received!

  2. I finally got my box tonight. Same as the review. I can’t wait to try everything.

  3. I’ll be getting some version of this box even though I unsubscribed right after getting the December BoxyLuxe (which was a disappointment).

    I checked with Boxy customer service via email and they said that their system was able to charge me the 3-month subscription on New Year’s Day. I did not get the January box, so I thought that it was odd that I had gotten the February box.

    So if you cancel, check and double check.

  4. I got my first Boxyluxe today and I was absolutely impressed!!! Wow! I got everything in the perfect shades. What I didn’t agree though is the fact that they threw in the boxycharm makeup bag (20.00) in the value of the whole shebang 🤔
    The total of my box was 301.98 (with bag)

    • I honestly didn’t mind getting the bag! my travel bags are constantly getting dirty so this was a useful item for me. This is the best BoxyLuxe yet!

  5. I got my Boxyluxe last week and its amazing! I got the light/medium Cover FX palette which is what I wanted. Even the lipstick is wearable surprise surprise! The Morphe palette is bomb too. I could do without the nail polish though.

    • Nail polish can be the most hit or miss thing for me because I am really particular! Glad you loved the rest of the box!

  6. I’m wondering how you know what shade of the pallet you’re getting before it comes. Is there a way to tell if they’re sending me the light or the darker one? I love everything but I hope I don’t get the darker pallet for my pale skin.

    • The day my box was delivered I got an email from Boxy apologizing for sending the wrong shade for the CoverFX palette. If you get one of those emails, safe to say you probably got the opposite of what you need :/

  7. I hate that they do such different variations. I’d love that liquid eyeshadow and liquid lipstick but I’d be pissed if git a mascara or lip gloss.

  8. I didn’t get an email regarding shipping issues, but I got an email with tracking and it’s still stuck in “label created”. I’m not sure if this is the norm because it’s my first box.

    I have very pale skin and I hope I got the light palette. I’ll be really upset because I subscribed just for that!

  9. I didn’t realize they sent out different color options in the CoverFX palette. I got the Medium/Deep and I have very pale skin, so I can’t use it 🙁 I’ll probably end up using it as eye shadows.

    • If you had your profile updated, send them an email and let them know. They’ve been giving people 4,500 charms (value of the palette). I haven’t gotten mine yet, but that’s what I’ve read. It’s super lame given how many times they told us to update our profiles just for this palette – and they’ve had all this time to prepare their computer systems – and they still blew it.

      • I received an email they credited me in the charm store. Unfortunately the site is being stupid and I can’t put items in my shopping cart🙄

    • Wow really?? That sucks…

  10. I would like this variation most.

    • I am admittedly really happy I didn’t get the Manna Kadar mascara. I got it recently in a different box and really disliked it.

  11. Did anyone else get ab e-mail saying that there was a problem with the shipping e-mail?

    I’m puzzled because I canceled in December.

    • I did. 🙁 I am subscribed to Boxyluxe and received the email yesterday. Hopefully we’ll get it soon.

  12. That box is perfection. I would love to get this version! Im pretty sad that I’m getting the light tone pallet when I’m a dark complexion. Im sure I’ll use the pallet but was so hoping.

    • That is a bummer Joy! It sounds like a few people got the wrong shade, so I would recommend trying to trade if you can. I think Ashley left a comment above with the same issue.

    • I received the dark pallet and have super pale skin if you want to trade!

    • There was an error with the palettes. They aren’t doing replacements but if you contact they are giving BoxyCharms to compensate.

  13. FYI Ladies….unfortunately March is sold out on BC website. 😢

  14. I just got my luxe and I have to say Boxee charm you have almost completely redeemed yourself with this box. The lipstick color I absolutely love for the first time ever the cover FX pallet I absolutely love it is way better than the pallet we got from glam bag plus the nail polishes I don’t know what that picture they posted was but these colors don’t look anything like that they’re absolutely dropdead beautiful the eyeshadow palette I know they are still questions about mor I just got my luxe and I have to say Boxee charm you have almost completely redeemed yourself with this box. The lipstick color I absolutely love for the first time ever the cover FX palette I absolutely love it is way better than the pallet we got from glam bag plus the nail polishes I don’t know what that picture they posted was but these colors don’t look anything like that they’re absolutely dropdead beautiful the eyeshadow palette I know there still questions about. The quality of that but the color story of the one I got is absolutely beautiful and the pictures don’t do it justice either the Boxee charm make up bag is to die for adorable …. the lashes still suck but forgiven

  15. So I take it everyone got the memo!!?!?!??!?!? Late shipping?! As long as I get my box, I’m happy! Everyone, have a great Sunday!!!!!!

    • I usually don’t have an issue with late shipping, had they not done the same exact thing to me with December’s Boxyluxe. Once is fine, twice I’m not okay with.

  16. I think it’s a beautiful theme & a beautiful box!!! I’m still not mad at canceling my Luxe, I’m actually pretty happy & excited to get my base box🌹🌹🌹plus, I LOVE roses🌹🌹🌹!

  17. I just got my Boxyluxe which contained the fx palette in the “dark” variant which is completely unusable for me since I am fair.

    The Morphe palette (which is in the Luxe version) is also more suitable for darker complexions as is the nail polish.

    If they had set out to provide a box that was deliberately wrong for me, they couldn’t have done a better job.

    I’m usually pretty casual in terms of items that aren’t to my taste or whatever but if you have two clearly different items – one for dark and one for light, how in the world do you send them out without providing the appropriate choice especially when the item is the highest value item in the box.

  18. I filled out the beauty quiz and luckily I got the right Cover FX pallette. I hate it for those who didnt, I agree it would be really frustrating.

  19. I’m hoping I’ll get the right pallet in my box. I’ve been needing to find a new one, and I’d love to try the cover fx out!

  20. Love everthing in this box. Can’t wait to try it all. I received an email that my box won’t ship for another week. I wonder what happened? Email said “reasons outside our control”.

    • Same. Has anybody other than PR gotten their boxes?

      • Just boxyluxe customers from what I saw. I got an email that boxes are delayed and expect tracking next week. It annoys me that Pr boxes are always on time but paying customers have to wait to get ours.

        • I’m Boxyluxe and haven’t received mine yet, granted I am in Canada and a product replacement was to be added to my box so that might be why. I also was sent the same email regarding delayed boxes. Hopefully it comes sooner rather than later!

        • I’m boxylux and got the same email

        • I still haven’t gotten my boxyluxe and have been stuck in the label created stage since wed.

          • I also haven’t received my boxyluxe yet, and I never got an email about delayed shipping. I’m not worried though. As long as I get it within the month it’s due, I’m happy!

        • They did the same with my December Boxyluxe, too. Not happy to get the delay email again..

        • I received my Boxyluxe on the 6th and I am not an influencer by any means. However, I did receive the wrong color of the Cover FX palette, as did many others that received their box early so maybe they are delaying the shipping on the rest to take the time and make sure there are no more mix ups.

        • Everyone who got delay emails regarding your luxe should be happy I think they are trying to fix a big issue this month people like me got the wrong shade color fx pallet I’m black and got the light I’ve seen a lot of people with the same issue

          • IF I get the medium/dark version, I would LOVE to trade with you! My email is jaclynsmusings AT gmail DOT com

      • I got my box and I’m not PR but I did get the luxe so idk of that makes a difference

  21. I think a lot of people were looking forward to the CoverFX palette, it was enough for me to consider resubscribing but people getting the wrong colors reminded me not to.

    • That’s pretty much what happened with me. I held off until I could see if they actually customized what palette people got, and in a twist everyone saw coming, they still messed it up

      • Same here
