Has anyone tried the promos like free Becca powder for re-subscribing? I don’t think I cancelled before the 1st. Will it work? I usually do a 3 month subscription at a time so it was likely after but when I tried the code it said it went through.


I canceled boxy this month (regular and luxe) but would like to resubscribe to get November’s boxes.. regular and possibly premium, plus get back on the list for luxe. Do I need do wait until November 1st to do so if I want to avoid getting October’s box, or…?

Have they already given the option to choose for October? I just signed up the last day of September and wondering if I missed the chance to choose for October


Me too

Tamara Dungan

Yes, I got the email to choose between the Iconic London Glow Spray OR Touch in Sol Pretty Filter Skin Balm around mid September. I got the email confirming my choice on 9/17/19.


I’m confused too, would love to know the same

Tamara Dungan

Yes, I got the email to choose between the Iconic London Glow Spray OR Touch in Sol Pretty Filter Skin Balm around mid September. It was a little disappointing because if BoxyCharm paid any attention at all to my profile quiz, they’d already know that I would never ever EVER choose anything with the word “glow” in the title. I was really hoping for a choice on the palette.


Email me I have a bunch if you’re serious.


Hi all,

Does anyone know if I was to re-subscribe now (9/30) if I would get the September or October box? Also would I still have the option of choosing one of my items or would it be too late? I don’t want the september box but also would like to get a choice in one of my items. Thanks!

Miranda Ford

I just subscribed today and was charged for the September box and will be charged again tomorrow. I also did not get to choose.


Ahh, that’s a bummer! Thanks for the info!


I have more eye shadow palettes than I will ever use so I’ve started a collection of makeup products that would make great gifts for birthdays, Christmas, etc.

I also started to rotate my eye shadow palettes on a weekly basis. On weekends, I will grab all my single eye shadows and use them.

This way it forces me to use up my current collections before I open up another palette.

I’m a makeup junkie and I can’t help myself. For the price of the subscription, there’s really nothing to complain about.


I love boxycharm but I also have so many black eyeliners. 🙁 I know ill end up with it , o well.


I honestly do not need anymore black eyeliner. Love Boxycharm, but a couple a year is more than enough, I have 30 of them!


I signed up for the September Boxy to receive the free Becca powder.
I was indifferent to the variation, although the Violet Voss pallete didn’t really look like something I would use consistently. I ordered my box the second week in September and still have not received it.
I’ve been on a break from Boxy for a year.
Yesterday I received an email letting me know that there was a delay in my September box and that tracking will be provided in a few days.
They gave me a complete peek into my box ( I’m receiving the Tarte pallete instead of the Violet Voss).
Also, they are giving me 1000 charms for the inconvenience.
I really thought this was nice and a step in the right direction for Boxy.
Although I left Boxy for Ipsy Plus…
The tables may be turning, as Boxy seems to be stepping it up and Ipsy Plus is rolling out these subpar collabs.
For now Ipsy Plus is on pause and I’m pleased with Boxy.


I resubscribed on the 18th and they have not shipped my box either. Very curious. I also got charms to compensate and bought an extra item with them. Still no idea where or when ill get my box but? They will have to send something eventually? Cant be in a hurry


Lol! Yeah not so fast here.

I had to beg them to intervene and for a replacement for a lost in mail Boxyluxe that was sent on September 6th. They STILL have not shipped out a replacement.

They still have a lot of work to do, IMO.


My comments disappearing again….Great!


Oh no, I love Boxycharm but I find black eyeliners way to harsh for me, honestly I look like a raccoon and it draws attention to my crows feet.
I have over 30, wondering if I can trade the whole lot for like a Glamglow cleanser. I have already donated 12 pounds of cosmetics ughhhhh


I have been cutting box after box after box. I’m down to pearlesque, boxwalla, Ipsy and Boxycharm. Pearlesque and Boxwalla will be the very last to go. And Ipsy is also farely safe. Boxycharm is on the block though. Ive been getting Boxycharm since the beginning of boxycharm but I’m about done with them. Fabfitfun was another favorite that I cut after the fall box (which I have yet to receive btw). I promise though, if I get another glittery glowy setting spray or another liquid eyeliner (which I will never use) then boxy is gone for good. Argh!!!




Me too! I spent way too much time and money at the dermatologist before I realized they were causing my allergic reactions.



Michelle B

If any of you end up with a colorful palette you don’t like and I do I would love to trade if anyone is interested <3

Alma Sanchez

I’m excited for October’s BC and hope I receive the baked browns or cool browns this time around I never get what I really like on eyeshadows 😭 I always end up with mauve or wild colors lol but it’s ok I mean for just 21 dollars a month can’t beat that, and about this months add ons 🤮 I have everything they have on the sight except for the face primer/ moisturizer I believe it is, but I will be getting that for next month so why would I purchase anything from the add ons 🤷‍♀️ Now July’s pop ups I loved, but I didn’t buy anything because everything I wanted was sold out.


I’m always hoping for the crazy colors, to go with my teal and purple hair….but I always end up with the neutrals! So maybe we can trade…lol.

Emily Ilene

I’m gonna say it… I’m excited for this box! I would love to get a dose of colors pallette! I’ve been wanting to purchase one since I saw awesome reviews from several YouTube beauty influencers awhile ago. I appreciate the chance to try things that I could never afford to just play around with were I to purchase them separately. Mom of 4 right here, who has a deep love for makeup and skincare. It’s the only thing I allow myself time for as my ‘me’ time creative outlet. I’ve been doing sub boxes for years now, and the value is still there for me. I think this one is looking pretty good with good brands and a nice assortment of makeup and skincare! Thanks BC, this mama would not be able to glam it up if it weren’t for you. ❤️

Telnisha K Waddell

Yess nd one wanna donate there palette or sell it super cheap I’ll gladly take it! Any skin care or make up lol.. My 2 yr old & 13 yr olds love doing makeup on me n themselfs lol n i love doing it as well


Boxy add ons were slim and just leftovers – any leftovers I never liked anyway wow that’s a
Sad way to start off and try and compete in this sub game – easy pass – saved my money .


I literally ONLY like the dose of color pallete that they just now are showing. I do not care for any of the others at all whatsoever. Crossing my fingers…


ADDONS ARE LIVE!! but very underwhelming. It’s all stuff from septembers boxycharm and boxyluxe and the touch in sol product from October’s choice. Plus a few other things. The only interesting thing to me is the Elemis mask for $12


Add-ons are up


I grabbed the Glassy balm and Elemis superfoods mask


I grabbed the same two item, a gift for my daughter. The ad on prices are good if you know you like the product but not good enough to try a product. The ad on selection wasn’t really exciting but it’s a start. I’m excited for future ad on sales.


I’m getting really sleepy (I’m a day sleeper). Where did we get the idea that add-ons start today? And if so, WHY won’t they tell us a release time? Boxy loves to do this sort of thing and enjoys keeping us on pins and needles to build excitement. Boxy, I think you’re playing to the younger set….maybe they enjoy the game? But they are in SCHOOL. I just want to choose my add-ons and go to sleep. What is wrong with telling us when they go live???? What time did the last pop-up sale go live (just as a general guideline)? Did they announce it beforehand ?

BOXY!!! Step it up!!! I can barely keep my eyes open. Please just give us the details……pretty please!! 💤😴😤


I’m a day sleeper..I got an email saying 9/24


IDK… This box is looking pretty good to me. I’ve sure as hell seen worse from Boxycharm. LOL Since I already own all the Dose of Colors matte palettes except Pretty Cool, I hope I receive that one or the iluvsarahii palette. Not the Tarte palette, please! I’d be fine with either the Smashbox eyeliner or Paula’s Choice BHA exfoliant. Not super jazzed about the customization choices. I know I would never use the Iconic London Spray, though, so I picked the Touch in Sol Glassy Skin Balm. I’m oily, but maybe I can use it at night. If not, I’ll give it to my BFF, who has dry skin.


When are the “add ons” if they are tomorrow, why dont we have any info on release time etc?!


There on their site right now and boring as heck :/


Thanks dot!!! Hahaha I grabbed the brushes, and the violet voss pallette I didn’t get last month (got tarte one…not the bronzer and blush one but the other one ) and I grabbed the stila lip in red.

The brushes I’m going to gift to a friend for Christmas, along with the tarte pallette I got last month, I think she will like it and I can try to play in the violet voss one and hopefully not look like a clown. Not sure if I will like the stila lip either, but I figure for 6 dollars and I’m already ordering 2 things , might as well try it out.

Someone on YouTube is saying there might be this cross between a clarosinc and frouo (dont think I spelled it right) on boxy pop up next month….her channel is Elizabeth wolfe… maybe you can find something you like on the pop ups next motnh?!

I wish I would have got the brush set the dream catcher one on pop up last time, but it was sold out when I seen them.

This month’s box looks like it will be good. Kinda excited to see what shows up. Lol

Hope you’re having a great day/night


Thats exactly what I said. They showed 4 different palettes. But yet somehow everyone seemed to get the Violet Voss. Considering all of my family and friends got the Violet Voss and I read they send different batches out at different times and I subscribed this month and late, I was almost positive I would get a different palette and I didnt. I was emailing with a rep that actually told me they do their best to go by the beauty quiz. Thats not true because I marked no eyeshadow. They need to switch it up and give other kinds of palettes rather than just eyeshadow.


Totally agree they don’t look @ beauty quiz b/c I marked same thing – and got same answer from rep :/ plus a smart a$& remark oh well “ we’re a diamond in the rough” I’m like really guess you’ve been in the rough for years with no chance of becoming a diamond “ at least Ipsy tried to make things rights and their CS is beyond amazing ! But BC oh boy .. less then desirable CS


This is the problem. People complain about all the eyeshadow pallettes (I collect them so bring it on because I like to try good brands so I can buy more from) but there is only so much makeup they can send over and over….people start complaining and you get water bottles and spongellea crap. Thing is, I’d rather have a makeup box vs all this other stuff they are trying to do, and the thing is they are trying to keep everyone happy and these changes suck.

I’d rather have makeup with well l own brands, even an eyeshadow pallette every month, with brushes, and even ugly brown and neutral lipstick over and over and over with maybe 1 high end skin care vs waterbottles, and curling irons and spongellas. Lol


Omg yess it kills me lol no matter what some are just not happy!! I love my boxy n even of i dont its 21$-25$ a mnth come on now,one of those items slone is going to cost u about the same amount. Yet they wanna complain !! So cancelle it go with FFF or just buy what u want lol i dont understand why so many people have to keep complaining ugh

Say it louder for the people in the front and back who constantly complain. Every. Single. Month. LoL


Definitely not my favourite. I really do like Boxycharm overall but could have skipped this month. I’m going to downgrade from my prepaid 3-month to monthly I think so that I can cancel and only buy the boxes that look good (especially with that price increase, will be buying fewer and fewer I guess). Definitely don’t need another bright eyeshadow palette- when I subscribed I thought you got a palette monthly but of different things (ie eyeshadows, blushes, contour, etc). Also hate Paula’s Choice as every one of their products makes me break out (I tried an entire skincare routine from them for several months trying to see if anything would work)- my friend loves them though. Well, we’ll see- always people who will be happy to take makeup off my hands!


This is what I am doing as well, especially with the box for us Canadians now going from $35 to $42 a month Canadian. I will just go month by month. I expect I will be skipping more often than buying, as I can find some pretty awesome palettes (if I want them) or skincare at any of the discount retailers (i.e. Marshalls, Winners) myself since that seems to be what they are sending more and more of. I did not get the highlighter in this month’s box (which I would have preferred) but I found it at Winners for $3.00 this week anyway….I did like the VV palette this month as it was far more neutral than I expected and the formula has been very blendable and long lasting for me, but that and the Dr. Brandt are the only “wins” for me this month (no. more. eyeliner. please.). All the eyeshadow palettes are great I think maybe if you are building a collection but otherwise, it just seems overwhelming.


I agree I’d love to try different palettes , I’m drowning and suffocating in eyeshadow palettes from BC – change it up a little . I so look forward to getting a contour of face palette , but every month I’m let down with more eyeshadows I cannot use .. sighs .. I do try to make best of it and be happy with at least 2-3 items out of box .
