Oh!! Thank God were getting eyeliner! I’m down too ten pens, I’ve been afraid I’m going to run out!

Vicky H



Hmmm. I don’t know!! Ipsy has really stepped up on their Box.. I wouldn’t mind the Eyeliner, I love Liquid eyeliner. September’s Box was “ok” I already had the Tarte Pallet. So hopefully I’ll get something more vibrant instead of just Neutral colors… (Fingers crossed)


I don’t like eyeliners at all and have tons I’m always donating , and Paula’s choice has BHA On the other hand, Beta Hydroxy Acid (BHA) is an oil loving acid. BHA is preferred for oily, acne-prone skin and for treating blackheads and whiteheads. BHA can get through the oil that clogs pores and helps to normalize the lining of the pore that contributes to acne. The thing is I don’t have oily skin or acne, it will completely sensitive to skin products. So those who have those skin concerns Paula’s choice got great reviews. But, I rather have anti aging stuff, or sensitive skin products, I also love serums and oils. Everyone has different issues , and these variant boxes don’t help . I used SR Good Genes with the glycolic acid in it and my skin is still recovering, it made my skin super dry even though I followed instructions so carefully about glycolic acid. As I said skin super sensitive so Paula’s choice is a no go for me, plus Boxy is drowning me in eyeshadow palettes :/ I so badly wanted the tarte face clay palette, I rather have a face palette then constant eyeshadows. They never review profiles, or reviews. They say this will change next month. Honestly I doubt that. So far October Boxy And Ipsy ( BB collab :/ ) are such letdowns, same as last months (sighs) I will cancel after pop up sale for Boxy, but that was horrible too due to the fact people who had multiple accounts hoarded all the items for sale , and boxy was sold out so fast ( they didn’t look at supply and demand either ) IDK , I also want to see their add ons on the 24th . I know sometimes two of their products pay for the box over , however this box looks like I can’t use anything .


I feel the same way! I have so many pallets and I already have the Tarte pallet I was hoping for something different. I hope I get the eyeliner for sure! Right now I’m Team IPSY


I am very excited for October box but I am quite sure they are not going to give me what I want based on survey and quiz which I feel like they fail. Either way, I hope at least 2-3 items I be happy with… if not I am trading.


FYI….If you get tools from Boxycharm test them right away! I was saving my Small blow dryer that we got in Boxyluxe for a trip simply took it out, and put it up. It never occurred to me it may have a short. Took it with me on a trip, discovered it was faulty. Boxycharm has only a 2 week return policy and in a round about, polite manner, told me too bad, so sad! I don’t really blame them, if you bend rules for one, you have to change rules for all. Just letting you guys know to test products, within the two week time frame!


Contact the company that makes the hair dryer. I’m pretty sure mine had a warranty card in the bag.


I really want the Mauve pallette. If I get any other color I we would love to trade with someone …

I’ve been eyeing that since it came out.


Did anyone else see that the DOC palette is now a variant with a Tarte palette? They marketed the DOC and now i think it will be unicorn 😔😔


Which tarte palette?


I did see that and we are not amused…

Lori Tinsley

I would use any of The Dose of Colors pallets except the one with the Blue shadows, so I’m guessing that’s the one I will get. Crossing my fingers that I’m wrong and get the smokie browns or naturals. 🤞

Tracy Mattson

We all probably are… which means everyone will get the blue!


Yes, I wonder which one. I actually don’t have a Tarte palette yet, so I wouldn’t mind. I know a lot of you guys are tired of them though!


I would love a Tarte Palette <3 anything over eyeshadow 🙂


boxycharm sneak peak insta


Another bait and switch! If Boxycharm really wants to improve, they need to stop with all these variations.


Oh I totally agree if it’s a bait and switch I’m canceling all my accounts and just going to live with the fact that no matter how hard we want what they say we will get I’m done if we don’t receive the doc pallet. I think it’s false advertising and ideally don’t like the tarte eyeshadow palettes I prefer the doc hence why I kept my account it makes me so frustrated


I would resub if Boxycharm quit with the shiesty fake advertising and bait and switch variations. They don’t deserve my money. Crooked way to run a business.


Where did you see that? Do you know which Tarte palette it is?


I think it’s the Rainforest of the Sea, Vol 2


Just canceled. The “choice item” should have be to select the palette option you want. too many i wouldnt use and dont like either choice item

Tracy Mattson

I agree


No more eye liner ugh. It’s killing me. Ive gotten black liners from every brand by now and don’t even use liquid ones. I do like Paula’s choice but with my luck I’ll get liner. I like my item I got to choose and the eye shadows I only like one of the palettes. I have all my profile set up with what I like and want to get but they always give me things that I deselected or colors I don’t want. I liked boxy better when their were less variations. It gets people’s hopes up they’ll get an item and then we end up getting the one we aren’t interested in. I already canceled allure because of the variations. I used to love that box until my chances of getting a good item dropped.


So true the only way I can say it’s worth it for me is that for the price of one product you get 4 more . If I get stuff I don’t want I just will save it but it doesn’t change the fact that I wish I could get ipsys box but I’m in Canada so I have to just settle for the bag but there is something about ipsy I really like more . They actually put things in my bag I’m interested in or will use not happy as of late with boxy . If this month I get eyeshadow from tarte I’m done . I can live without it especially since I really feel taken advantage of. Really has gone down hill. Instead of the product choice I agree we should have be able to choose the pallette we wanted because there are 3 I’m interested in and 3 I’m not a fan of and one is the one with the blue eyeshadow . Total bait and switch I’m so sick of the false advertising


I dropped Boxy and no FOMO here. I have been interested in the Dose palettes but most of the colors are not my cup of tea. And the variations are wildly out of balance. I’m continuing to pause my ipsy GBP as well, everyone seems to be in a down cycle, or maybe I’m just getting super picky the longer I go and the bigger my stockpile gets.


The boxes and ipsy are both lack luster lately and they are raising prices on both.

tammy g.

i’m glad I cancelled…i’ll move on to another box..

Nicole McCollm

I hope I get Paula’s choice!!!! That’s good stuff…but not anywhere comparable to that eyeliner! Like what?! And I hope I get the mauves palette!


No eyeliner please!

I like the eyeshadow palettes as longs as I don’t get purple, mauve or cool. LOL I will probably get everything I don’t want!


I am so sick of black eyeliners, send lip pencils or eye liners in other colors.


I agree completely, please no more black eyeliner, some many fun colors! Every beauty box subscription is bombarding us with black eyeliner. Send us something else like face/eye masks.


This box sucks this month


How is that even an even amount … another stupid black liner or a Paula’s choice item … or anything really


Is there a way to skip a month?


Nope you have to cancel and resub
I’m just holding on to pop up sale in November and then I’ll most likely cancel , I’m being drowned by eyeliners and eyeshadow palettes 👎


For all of you who have too many eyeliners…

They are awesome as caligraphy markers…


Yes! I use makeup as art mediums frequently.


I heard some people got emails for surveys , anyone else get a secret survey via email to rate upcoming products ?

I didn’t , how do they choose certain people ?

Just curious


I want the Paula’s choice liquid exfoliant, I chose the touch in sol product and I want one of the more brightly colored dose of color palettes. I’m excited for october!

Patricia Fuentes

Me too!!! I choose the iconic linden prep set n glow spray. I’d be happy with anyone of the 7 dose of color palette variants they are having. I’d even be aight with the tarte palette to give as a gift because I already have that one and a few others of tarte. I hope for the Paula’s choice exfoliate but the eyeliner would be ok to give to my granddaughter.. Really great products in boxycharm and all full size. Can’t beat that for the price. I’m saving $$$ not going into sephora all the time 😜😅😂 I’m considering the getting the premium too, to see what they got going on with that


They probably choose randomly for the survey. I did get this one, and I thought overall the brands and products looked great, and there were a few I didn’t like and I gave my honest opinion. I don’t remember tools in my survey. I don’t like getting tools because I have very fine curly gray hair, and I don’t use heat products since they can yellow gray hair.

I may be wrong about this, but I think the way to avoid getting tools is to upgrade to Premium and drop Luxe. My understanding is that Luxe will have tools and Premium will not (if someone knows this is wrong please correct me!) So I have upgraded to Premium and will be dropping regular/Luxe in December. I’m ok with getting both regular and premium in November because I understand it’s a necessity for technical reasons, and I’m sorta glad I’m being forced to get extra products for one month 🙂


I have never got a survey.


I received an email asking to take survey and not to share anywhere. I won’t give specifics but, they were asking what I thought of a few brands and then a few products from those brands. I’ll just say, there may be more tools headed our way than just all make-up or skincare.




Oh thanks guys , and I don’t need tools 🙁
I’m particular with my hair plus it’s curly , don’t need tools
Rather have skincare and new makeup items and brands .
Seems underwhelming :/


I’m not sure how they pick, but I got one. The products were underwhelming. The only one I can remember was a mini Sutra curling wand. Since I just got the full size one in Luxe, I said no to that.


they sent me a broken water bottle. I emailed customer service and. They said you can choose the item next month


No seriously though the eyeliner is making me consider cancelling, Ive only had Boxycharm for 3 months and I don’t even use eyeliner but I get one in every box they send, I’d much rather them give mascara.


Agree ! 👍


Many of us JUST received a black liquid liner in September’s box.


I feel ya on the eyeliner! I did a count today and I have 52 tubes of black liquid liner! I have begun using it on my brows and it actually works pretty well. I can’t even give it away. Why can’t they give us a different color at least? Please? But other than that my box was okay this month. Not really impressed w Violet Voss palette. Pretty co!or’s but no payoff and they don’t last. Love the Dr. Brandt night mask. And the brow pen was nice.


or…ya know…maybe you have reached the maximum limit of different makeup items that you can ever possibly recieve in a subscription box and it’s not really the companies fault that you opt not only for one…but TWO boxes every month for at least 52 different months in a row.
I’m not entirely sure what you people expect them to do?
..Cancel your subscription for awhile because they obviously cant send you anything exciting anymore
and you’ve outgrown the need for a makeup sub box.


I take my extras to the Domestic women’s shelters. They would most likely LOVE to take your extra eyeliners!


Domestic Abuse”


I have so many highlighters and eyeliners that I could probably never buy another and have enough to last the rest of my life. I like foundations, nail polish, anti wrinkle creams and eye cream.


If I get that eyeliner, I will have received 6 black eyeliners across my beauty subs in the span of 3months! I mean how about a different color maybe? They should look at the swap and resell shops to see what people are ditching. I’ve yet to get a lip liner, an eyebrow anything, nail polish, concealer, lip stain…


We been saying this for years. I just gave 4 away and this months Boxy and now next months Boxy (?!???) 2 more?? You got to be kidding me. And I get 2 boxes as so different people, complexions, hair and eye color different with different color interested and got 2 of the same exact box. Now I have no use for 2….I’m curious to see if I get the liner in both as a variation and if I do, I’m stopping again until something life altering pops in there box.


So the Influencers and new subscribers will get the Paula’s Choice and the rest of us will end up with yet another black eyeliner.


It’s ridiculous that they would even consider having the eyeliner as an OR compared to Paula’s choice they are nowhere equal in value


So so true !!! Well said Leslie


Another black liquid eyeliner??? I have at least 20 I’m not even using😑😑😑😖😡
