  1. Still confused I am boxyluxe subscriber. I’m confused as to why I received boxycharm this month but haven’t in months past. I thought I would be getting a boxyluxe box in September. Help for this confused gal welcome… THANKS, Carla

    • You have to have regular Boxycharm in the off months if you want to get Boxyluxe. You can always unsub for 1 month then rejoin and cross your fingers you are taken off the waitlist for BL. But, you cannot ONLY get BL

  2. I received my box today.

    Tarte Big Ego mascara
    Becca Hydra mist powder
    Wander Glow Ahead face oil
    Ace beaute eye shadows in French Vanilla & Huckleberry
    Hillywood n Vine Kohl eye pencil

    Anyone want to trade for the eye shadow?

    • I have not received mine yet, but what would you want in exchange for those eyeshadows?

    • This is the same exact box I got. I’m surprised the free gifts didn’t ship separately.

  3. I got my box today. For the 1st time in 3 years they sent me a repeat (the lashes) but I’m not mad. I emailed them and I anticipate that they will offer me charms or a replacement item. I am still happy with my box, despite the repeat. I would have loved to try the serum, but I still think that it’s very well rounded and, for me, the Becca powder alone is worth the $21. Gotta look at the bright side, even when we don’t get exactly what we want!

    I received variation 9:

    Wander glow ahead
    Becca Powder in the lighter shade
    Pur Glitter mask
    Tarte Big Ego Mascara

    • They have sent me doubles at least 3 times and when I emailed they just ignored my emails. I hope you have better luck than me.

      • Thanks 🙂 If not, it’s no big deal. They’ve always been super responsive to me in the past with damaged items. Fingers crossed

        • If Boxy doesn’t get back to you I’d be willing to trade you for the lashes.

          • Are you saying you want the lashes bc I’m looking to trade mine for the glitter mask

          • They got back to me and proceeded to argue with me and insist that I never received them. They tried to tell me I got a different brand (which I did but I also got the Lashaholic). It’s the first time I’ve felt like they dropped the ball on C.S. It was kind of a bad call on their part. Maybe I am just on overload but I am actually considering canceling after September, just for the principal.

          • O my gosh they tried to tell me I never received the lashoholic lashes either and I absolutely did! I’ve always heard Boxys CS was bad, it’s like they don’t even care anymore n think people won’t cancel cause next month is luxe

        • Those ARE Lashaholic lashes and yes, they were in a box last year. I think in the winter because I wore them for the 1st time to a winter event. Maybe even January.

    • I love your positive attitude! I got the exact same box today and had a baby tantrum! I wanted another option, but you are so right… overall it’s not that bad. The powder is the prize!

      • Haha it happens! I’ve gotten bummed about not getting a variation I wanted too

  4. I got my box today. Super fast it seems. I just got the tracking number yesterday and the label was created Friday. I got the top variation on this page and it was #9. I lucked out earlier this year and didn’t get the ‘Kim’ lashes. Not so fortunate this time. Nothing exciting in this box. I have the mascara, don’t use lashes, got a lot of oils that I already like and don’t do peel-off masks so I just wash off if I use. I guess the Becca powder?

  5. Those are lashoholic lashes!! They are fabulous!

  6. I am kinda confused on my tiny little box for August. I so wanted that serum and yet again I have another stupid mascara. Are we allowed to Opt Out of items with boxycharm? Also August is not a boxy luxe box or are we getting both? I dont reclal getting such a small box ever.

    • My box arriving tomorrow. I hope not a mascara. I have not subscribed to certain boxes such as ipsy and sephora bc each month they send a mascara as per the spoilers and reviews I see. I do not use this. Boxycharm had a questionnaire when i signed up. I hope they use it. I would hate to get any eyelash products as anything on my lashes bothers me.

    • There is no opting out with Boxycharm. Boxyluxe is coming in September. You should have gotten 5 items (the standard amount of items in regular Boxy)

  7. I just don’t really feel like boxycharm has changed all that much, it surprises me I still see them being considered #1 in beauty boxes. I realize this is totally my opinion and everyone likes different things, so it’s really not a big deal, I just don’t see that boxycharm is putting products in their box that are different than what they were putting in 2 years ago. It doesn’t seem like they listen to feedback much either. Ipsy did a huge overhaul and changed so many things. I love that there isn’t one brand that is always in the box, like Pur with boxycharm. I love that on the second of every month you get to choose form full and deluxe sized products to add to your box for $12 for full size and $3 for deluxe. You can choose up to three so you get more product of your own choosing in your box as well. Also, the whole Ipsy shopper is amazing. You can buy a lot of great brands like Mac, fresh, Estate, Hikari, Bobbi Brown all for 10-25% off all of the time. Then that percentage you get back in cash every two weeks or a month. I don’t know, I feel like Ipsy has really stepped it up. They are so good about not putting things in your box that you specifically asked to never have sent, and their customer care team responds quickly and always makes things right. Lol, I am literally not getting paid to write this. lol. Apparently I’m just surprised that with all of those perks and amazing products, that boxycharm is still at #1 status. Wait, you know what? Maybe I do see a specific brand a lot with Ipsy. Purlisse I see a lot, but I also love their skincare so many I didn’t notice it as much.

    • So with ipsy we can really opt out of things like mascara and lashes? (Anything on my lashes annoys me and I cant stand it). Seems that ipsy and sephora always have a mascara as per the spoilers and reviews on mysubscriptionaddiction . Thats why I never subscribed…i dont want products i will never use.

      • Yes. Just contact Ipsy and they will note up to two products they will TRY to never send. Mine are bronzers and self tanning products. I have not received either of them since (except when a bronzer is in a palette with eye shadows, blushes, highlighters and a bronzer or contour color). Note that you cannot opt out of specific shades or specific brands and an opt-out means the whole category. Example: you can opt out of lipstick but not specifically red lipstick. I am not sure if you can opt out of a certain product division within a broader category. For instance, I don’t know if you can opt out of liquid lipsticks or if it has to be ALL lipsticks. Hope that helps.

      • Yes, Ipsy will aow you to opt out of two items or products.

        • How do you opt out of items? I got picked 2 things this month I really didnt want

          • You’ll need to email Ipsy to opt out of the two items.

    • In theory I like the opt out option. In practice, I’ve opted out of mascara and lipstick and got a mascara last month and am getting a lipstick this month…

  8. I would love any box that does NOT have mascara and lashes. Eyelash products bother me, feel heavy and uncomfortable. But most subscription boxes always throw a mascara in every month despite our stated preference to not have it. The peach and lily glass skin serum is the reason I subscribed I heard its excellent.

  9. Just got mine today! I received variation 2.
    I got the Becca powder and Wander glow oil, and my variation items were the Tarte mascara, 2 Ace Beaute singles in Iced Latte and Cotton Candy and a Steve Laurant lip liner in Chic. Which is a good nude color! Over all happy with the box!!

    • That’s my box too!

  10. The lashes are Lashaholic. We already have gotten them in our box.

    • Is everyone getting mascara and lashes? I cant handle anything on my lashes. Heavy and bothers me. Seems like almost every subscription box has mascara every month despite us stating our preferences to not have these items.

  11. Ooo! According to tracking, i should be getting my box TODAY!

  12. The eyelashes brand are Lashaholic luxury lashes. I have a pair of them and love them

  13. I got my e-mail last night, mine will be here Friday..also, I’ve been getting an e-mail showing what will be in my box, but I did not get it this time..i emailed boxy and they said they were just doing this on some people..but will start this soon…

  14. I’ve started following the BOX to keep an eye on it! It does look good, especially for $20! They have sent things that we’ve already received from other subs tho – but some I’ve haven’t got as well. For another month or so, I’m just going to watch it. lol

    Jenn – its The BOX by Fashionsta .

    I sent the link to Liz, a couple weeks ago, hoping she would get them on MSA for reviews!

    • I’m excited about that Box too!

    • Is it a new box or do you mean boxycharn?

      • It’s a new subscription beauty box called The Box by Fashionsta not fashionista and you can google it. It sounds amazing!

      • It’s a new beauty box called The Box by Fashionsta. It’s been pretty popular, so they’re now in waitlist mode.

  15. I must have missed the memo but when did the Charms program change? I was pretty behind on reviews for the year but caught up a lot of them in July with no problem. I did April last night but when I started May, I got a message that said I had reached the maximum number of reviews I could submit for the month. So basically, there is no way to catch up. So I will miss four months (including June BoxyLuxe AND apparently the box for August). Am I reading this correctly?

    Also, what does the “one reward per monthly box review” mean? I may not have written that correctly, but there is some kind of new rule in the reward section. Also, do you still have to buy shipping coupons or do you just pay shipping outright?

    Updates were dated July 2019. I didn’t get an email. Did anyone get an email?
    I am cutting either BoxyLuxe or Ipsy Glam Bag Plus so any input would be appreciated.

    • That happened to me last month, too. I hadn’t done any reviews since May (and I don’t review everything I get, so it’s not like I had an excessive number), and it let me do 3 reviews before it gave me that message. However, I didn’t even get any charms for the 3 that it allowed.

      • I can’t believe people are not talking about it! I went back and counted and I had $2.50 for 8 or 9 reviews!!! I tried to work it out for minimal loss…four months gone. So in September, I will review June’s BoxyLuxe (more products) and in October, I will review September’s BoxyLuxe. That’s the best solution I can come up with. Then I will promptly cash in my charms and drop all of Boxy. I MAY stay through December but that’s it. I have plans for January 1st to keep only two beauty subs. So far Ipsy Plus and Allure are the ones to stay.

    • I haven’t heard anything about reviews and charms but that worries me! I always love that you get charms for leaving reviews I hope they are not changing that.

  16. I read somewhere that some people have already gotten their shipping for boxycharm. Has anyone else? I haven’t gotten my shipping info and am curious if anyone else has. 😬

    • I got an email with mine yesterday!

      • Oh really? That’s good maybe I’ll get mine today…hopefully 🙂 glad someone did though 😁

    • My box shipped last night. I should have it by Friday.

      • Last month and the month before (boxyluxe I think) my box shipped but it said at the bottom of the email “your box will arrive on this date” it had the calendar and said it was going to take two freaking weeks when other people were getting theirs and I’m in NC so GA is like right next door so wtf is up with that 😉

    • I received a shipping notice last night, but it was for the promo that arrived last week.

    • I didn’t get shipping info, but my box is arriving today

    • I got shipping yesterday that said my box will be here tomorrow

      • Well d*** what state do you live in? I always wonder how their shipping works like I’m in NC and they ship from GA so I’m confused as to why my shipping takes forever I almost wouldn’t even care if I knew what I was getting like ipsy but its cool. It’ll get here sooner or later 😊 and thanks to everyone for the quick responses! Y’all are awesome.

        • I’m in Florida and the shipping takes almost 2 weeks to get to me. No idea why.

    • Yes, I got mine on Monday the 5th.

    • I received my shipping info today. It’s supposed to be here next Monday. I signed up on Sunday the 4th so I was pleasantly surprised.

      • Also I’m in coastal South Carolina

    • Mine has shipped too. I got the email early this morning. It was shipped saturday, started tracking today and supposed to be delivered Friday.

  17. Would like to see less mascara and more eye liner, skin cream, and face cleaner

  18. I rather do have the first box since I’m new with boxycharm I really want the eyelashes ☺️💖

  19. It’s a lip liner by Steve Laurent.

  20. Neither box version I’m crazy about, but I would so rather get the second version

  21. I must be the only person who loves peel-off masks. I can’t sit still enough to use sheet masks, and I am on cream mask overload. It’s a nice “problem” to have.

    • I just wish I loved masks period since I feel like I get them every month in one box or another. Between ipsy glam bag ipsy GBP boxy boxyluxe and fabfitfun I have gotten so many masks that I still haven’t opened or gotten use from them. I can deal with the ones you wash off or peel off but I especially hate a sheet mask 😣😒😷😁

      • I think it’s funny they are sending the Pur glittery mask! That’s a brand new item since Pur collaborated with Barbie and the eyeshadow palette in that collection is gorgeous I’m surprised they didn’t get the palette but instead they got a glittery mask that is probably the only product in that collab that won’t sell. There are lipsticks other products in that collection. Who wants a glitter mask NOT me!

    • No! I love them too! 😁

    • I love peel off masks too! They always leave my skin feeling sooo clean and smooth. I almost don’t want to “ruin” that fresh feeling by applying products to my face afterward. lol

  22. Well, here’s to hoping I dont get those lashoholic lashes again!! I’ve gotten them before and hopefully they won’t send repeats lol

  23. Anybody get random charmroom points appear in their account within the lastfew days? I’m thinking I did because they sent the lashes I’ve already received a few times 🙄

    • Yes, I randomly had 500 points in my account when I checked yesterday.

  24. The eyeliner looks like the Colourpop Gel Creme liner in Over Board. I hope it is! I own it and it’s amazing!

  25. It’s not an eyeline, but a lipliner by Steve Laurant.

  26. More lashes. No thanks!! I’m done with Boxy!

    • Me too! I’m waiting to see the spoilers for Luxe and if I’m not impressed I am done. A whole drawer of mascara and now more lashes I won’t use. I get MAYBE one item a month that fits my profile. More excited for Ipsy GBP lately and now waiting for The Box.

  27. Liz,
    Those Lashes are from: LASHAHOLIC. Boxycharm has them to us before, so this is not a new item.

  28. So how likely is it you would get the glass skin serum ?50/50?? That’s the only thing Im really excited over in each variation.

    • Sadly, I think the odds of getting the serum are way lower than that. Probably only those lucky enough to get the choice email and selected the serum instead of the mascara will receive it. I think new subscribers could choose too.

      • I “chose” the serum, but got the mascara – Boo.
        Would LOVE to trade any TWO of the items listed below for the serum – I received the Big Ego mascara, the Lashaholic lashes, the Wander Glow Ahead face oil, and the Barbie peel-off mask.

        • What the heck? Why so many lash products? What about us who never use lash products? Things on my eyelashes bother me. If i get eyelash stuff like mascara etc im canceling. I didnt subscribe to sephora or ipsy box bc i see every month they have eyelash items. No thanks.

  29. This will be my last Boxy until after Chrustmas, due to make-up skincare overload, so I hope it ends up being a good one!

  30. They are definitely Lashaholic lashes. I got them last month in my Ipsy GlamBag Plus, which means I will probably get box 2 from Boxycharm!

  31. Please no more peel off masks. Ugh.

  32. Lashes are lashaholic lashes!!!

  33. I ordered the new 4-in-1 foundation from Pur’s website and it came from the same city in Georgia that BOXYCHARM is shipped from. Are they connected somehow? Is that why we’re always getting Pur products?

    I’ll admit that Pur products have gotten a lot better over the past few months so I won’t complain unless the quality goes back to what it once was.

    • Boxycharm is shipped out of Kennesaw, GA. 😉
      LOVELY town! I know it well from years gone by. I miss the burbs in the N. Atlanta metro area.

      You didn’t ask me, but I’d say it’s more likely that the proximity, thus lower shipping and perhaps some ” sweetheart deals”, are why Pur shows up in Boxycharm and usually not in other subs. I think it’s a good enough brand, FWIW.

      I bought a similar foundation recently from Purlisse and it’s orange. Light as can be, which is what I need, but it’s still more orange than even the yellow undertone foundations I’ve seen. I threw it in a drawer and forgot to return it.
      I hope your Pur foundation works out well for you! 😉

      • I thought about buying the Purlisse CC cream but their shade range had me worried. The Pur Foundation comes in 100 shades and I found one that matches my neutral tan skin without making me too “golden” or too “pink”. You can try the swatches in Ulta if you’re still looking for one, a lot of people really like it for its full coverage and range of shades.

        And that makes sense their warehouses may just be close to one another, so they often work out deals.

    • I live in the ATL area just a few minutes from Kennesaw, Ga. it is a nice town, btw. A lot of companies are headquartered in Atlanta and PUR is as well, so I’m sure that’s why they show up in Boxy so often- cheap shipping.

  34. Ugh I really don’t want lashes and some glitter mask and I hated the mascara – really really hoping I don’t get that box!!!!

  35. If you sign up for a second box, do you get the same variations every month in both?

    • It’s pretty random which variations you get each month.

    • In the account I’ve had for several years, I’ve gotten variation #1 all but three times. I tried getting a 2nd box with another email because I was usually unhappy with #1 but every single month I got two identical boxes. Both variation #1.

      • Thanks for letting me know! That’s why I was wanting to get a second box. I continuously get the lower value box, so I was hoping I would have better odds if I got two.

        • Not everyone is the same. Some get identical boxes, while others get different variations. I’ve gotten so many different variation box #s for all of my boxes (14 months worth). I don’t get a second Boxy sub, just wanted you to know that you aren’t guaranteed the same box number variation. Some do get the same box number, but most don’t.

    • I get two boxes of boxy and luxe and I mostly always get different variant products I’m really happy getting two boxes because of I get different products in each box except for the products that everyone gets so I do get some duplicates but I gives them to my daughters!

  36. I so hope I get the first box. I don’t wear lashes and can’t use peel off masks.

  37. I don’t like the idea of lashes or a peel off mask. I was hoping for the shadow duo which naturally means most of us are going to get the less than desirable leftovers while all of the good stuff goes to the influencers. Neat.

    • Yup. Exactly what I was thinking. I should’ve known not to get excited when I saw that first version with the two shadows. Another pair of fake lashes I will never use. I get it that you can’t please everyone but mascara AND fake lashes in the same box? Why why why can’t they just use our profiles????
      I’m really over such crazy different variations. Give us all the same stuff or use our profiles. Or go by the members you’ve been profiting from for years.
      Just stop sending your best stuff to Influencers, Bloggers, You Tubers and anyone else that spends their life online to guarantee a big social media presence, whilst dividing up all the overstock, discontinued, unboxed crap among the rest of us mere mortals. If I’m not blown away by Luxe next month I’m done. Luckily I was fortunate enough to get off the waitlist for “The Box” which seems to be taking the beauty sub world by storm. I already know first hand they have awesome customer service, which alone will give them a huge advantage over Boxy.

      • What is “The Box”? got a link?

      • I’ve started following THE BOX to keep an eye on it! It does look good, especially for $20! They have sent things that we’ve already received from other subs tho – but some I’ve haven’t got as well. For another month or so, I’m just going to watch it. lol

        Jenn – its The BOX by Fashionsta .

        I sent the link to Liz, a couple weeks ago, hoping she would get them on MSA for reviews!

  38. Got my email with my tracking # this morning… Really dont want the Pur/ Barbie pull off mask. Not into pull off or glitter masks at all. Would prefer the serum but would also like to try this mascara too.

  39. I hope I don’t get this variation.. I’ve already gotten those lashes twice.. 🙁 I don’t even wear lashes. I’m hoping for the Serum!! 🤞🏼

  40. I would use the serum and the powder, provided it’s an appropriate color.

  41. If i already received these lashes before, I shouldn’t receive them again right? Plus I don’t use lashes, so i marked on my profile that I don’t want them.

    • Yes if you received it then you should not get that again.

    • People have complained about receiving a duplicate item and boxy has been pretty good at sending you something new as a replacement, so if you get lashes again, email them!

      • Yea its rediclious because we are paying for boxes and we cant even pick what we like its rediclious that we keep getting the same stuff but it’s like this we no they read all the reviews if they really care how we all feel u would think them sending the same stuff would stop IM SO GLAD THIS WIL BE MY LAST BOX IM SWITCH TO THE BOX EVER ONE TALKING ABOUT .

    • Olga: Boxy DID send us those LASHAHOLIC lashes before…it is not a new product.

  42. Yikes, now I’m nervous, lol. I don’t like glittery skincare & I don’t need 2 lash products in 1 box!

  43. The eyeliner is a Steve Laurent.

  44. How do we know which box we will get? I just got those lashes in my box last month. This is only my third month of subscribing, so I wouldn’t be very impressed if I already get a repeat.

    • As long as you do your reviews after receiving your box each month, I believe you can avoid getting doubles. I’ve had boxy for around 2yrs I believe & never got doubles of anything

    • I’ve been with boxy since 8/2015,my august box will be 5 yrs. And I have never gotten a double,lots of same brand stuff like ofra lippies but always in different colors.

  45. Getting box 2 would be a disappointment for me.

  46. I wish Ipsy was this good because I’m too scared to try another subscription brand

    • Ipsy IS this good. I get two of each subscription boxes, and usually I’m more excited for Ipsy.

    • The $10/mo ipsy doesn’t compare to boxycharm, but they recently came out with a $20-$25/mo box where you receive full size products including palettes.
      I believe if you go thru subscriptionaddiction & look they have a section where they compare boxy, ipsy+ & 1 other box (glossybox I think) & most of the months the new ipsy+ box not only came out better as far as products received, but also had a higher retail value.
      I’ve yet to upgrade my $10 ipsy to the other, but only because I can’t afford almost $50/mo on subscription boxes lol #lifewhoas

    • Ipsy plus is SO much better than Boxycharm. Products, customer service, variations all better

  47. Those are Lashoholic lashes…we got them from BoxyCharm in the November 2018 box.

    • I got them in Last month box. This is my 3rd month of boxy now

  48. Aren’t those the Lashaholic luxury lashes?

  49. yep, lashaholic is my guess

  50. Looks like lashaholic lashes. Those are actually pretty nice.

    • Yes they are nice lashes, but I think the issue is more along the lines of ‘we shouldn’t get an item we have already received’. I know it bugs me even if they are nice…
