I am new to boxycharm as well just got my first box in the mail today i was actually happy with what i recieved i wanted to get one of the doc palettes but instead i got the butter london palette as well as my tarte palette and im inlove with it. As a new subscriber will i get novembers celetrial palette .? I been watching the spoilers and really hope that i recieve that in next months box

Starla Friesen

I agree. Looking forward to this box.

Elena

Just a quick tip for any resubscribed/new subscribers who didn’t get a Dose palette and we’re upset about it: I emailed Boxy CS when I first got my October box to express frustration with their misleading advertising for the palette, and they emailed me back today to offer me my choice between the Dose lipstick and Becca highlighter to make up for it. Not sure if this choice will affect the other products you get, but I feel like I’ll be pretty happy knowing I’m getting two items I picked (official November choice and this conciliatory one).

MR

When is the best time to sign up for Boxy charm to ensure I receive the November box.

Kristi Tucker

I signed up for the Premium box at 4:01. I did it as soon as I saw the email. I was working and didn’t see it right away. I wonder when they let you know if you came off the waitlist?

Wow

With this sneak peak on November boxes, I decided to reactivte because I want that Natasha Denona palette … I want to slap myself so bad!

I missed out on the choice window sadly. Would love to get the Kypris Antioxidant Dew because I have way toooooo many eye care products. I never even have to buy eye creams anymore.

Also love Becca highlighters even though I already have a ton and can’t event finish one LOL! Really don’t want another lipgloss though or lip products in general, prefer picking out specific shades myself in stores.

Excited to try Dominique’s eyeshadows! I didn’t even get the Dose of Colors eyeshadow palette for October. Would have wanted Marvelous Mauves or Blushing Berries!

Kenley

Boxycharm Premium waitlist is open now!!! Grab your spot 😃

Wow

Signed up for it. But I wonder how do I not get the December boxes, as in, when can I cancel but still get the November boxes (regular Boxycharm and Boxycharm Premium)?

Bianca

Once you get charged for the November boxes you can cancel anytime before December 1st. So that u don’t get charged for that box

MR

When is the best time to sign up for BC without being charged for October and November?

Bianca

November 1st. That way you will only get charged for the base box of Nov. And maybe upgrade to premium if it’s still available since there is a wait list.

Sung

I’m on it. 🙌 Thanks.

Emily Ilene

Woot! I did! 😁 Came here to say the same thing lol.

TheOnlyDiva

Who makes up the spoilers? Are they officially from BC? Someone is being extremely misleading.

MildredRODRIGUEZ

I LOVE Becca highlighter

pinkhoo

I hope Boxycharm forgets that they sent me a Becca highlighter years ago and sends me another one in a different shade than the last one. I hate all highlighters except my Becca highlighter.

HattiiJ

If I get the highlighter, I’d love to work out a trade!

jenny

The 3 items that BC guarantee are the 3 FIRST spoilers THEY posts. this month you would get are 1 of the the dose of colors eye shadows.
Either the TIS balm or the iconic spray.
Either the iconic lip gloss or the hank n Henry mascara.
Every thing else is a random and if you sign up in the month of October you are going to get what was left over …..
I don’t get hype up from spoilers from other site because I know those are NOT guarantee items.

Caity

Dose of Colors is not given to everyone. Boxycharm mislead the masses on that. It’s Dose of Colors OR Tarte, regardless of using a code or not.

Cathy

I didn’t get either! I got a facial wash, eye primer, face balm/ primer, red lip pencil, beige lip gloss 😕

AB

Has anyone received their promotional gift yet? Supposed to be a Tarte Pallet but i forgot to use the code. I emailed and they said they were sending “something”. wondering when they send it? i already received my first box. but no promo gift yet.

Sung

I’ve got Tarte clay palette as free gift. I didn’t get DOSE palette and many of new subscribers too. Value of box over $125 BC advertised is included with free gift. Without free gift, $107 value. I’m not sure when they shipped, I did recieved my box week after signed up.
My GBP Oct box value over $200. I think I’m going to stick around month or 2 with BC to see if anything change when price go up next month.

Dani G.

I received mine in my October box but I definitely used the code. I’ll be surprised if they still honor the promo since it wasn’t on your order. Hopefully I’m wrong and you’ll have better luck with their customer service than I have in the past.

Dot

Anyone know what date and time the pop up sale in November starts ?

Thanks ☺️

Bianca

They had said November would be a pop up month, just didn’t say what day

KB

I think it’s only quarterly? Not monthly.

Ashley

I just wish that BC would be transparent with their customers. They don’t care about keeping their loyal customers because they have so many new ones coming that see these spoilers to replace the old ones. They will learn of their deceptive ways soon enough, but by then, more new subscribers will replace those. And, the cycle continues.

Cindy M

Nice box…I would almost sub if I got to choose from each category being I already have the tarte contour palette. I like both of the skin care items…I used the juice beauty eye serum on an everyday basis but the other face serum looks interesting (reg. price on the eye serum is 50 dollars and the other serum 90) …I would actually like both skin care products but I realize that’s not an option. For 21 dollars it’s maybe worth a chance either the lip or becca is acceptable but prefer lip but then color is important but for the price it’s all nice…eye shadows are pretty colors though I rarely use eye shadow any more.

Hannah

The tarte palette is only for new subscribers in the month of october. It doesn’t come in the November box. They do add ons/choice 7th-9th this month where you could choose between Step items, November being the Kypris and juice beauty then you can add on the one you didn’t choose for $12. That’s an amazing deal for both! Just some tips for the future 🙂

Cindy M

Thank you! I did not know one could add on the other that way and it’s reasonable price imo for to try a a new product…~…😊…~…

Punkykiki

I am neither whining or complaining. I received the Paula’s Choice, the Iconic lippie in an orangish shade, the TIS, DoC in Baked Browns and the garbage Jonte Blue lip liner. But I am commenting because I think people should know what kind of company Boxy is and to be aware of their deceptive advertising. According to MSA spoilers, we will get our choice of the Kypris or the Juice Beauty. Nothing else is guaranteed. The eyeshadow palette just says it will be included in the November box; NOT that everyone will receive it. The same is true for the DoC lippies and the Becca. They did not say that everyone will receive one or the other. The wording says if you receive one, you will not receive the other (with their use of the word “or”). Boxy is infamous for misleading advertising so it’s important to read EXACTLY what is written. Even so, Boxy will often not honor what they promise. Bait and switch occurs regularly and variations always vary wildly in value. But if what people are saying is true, Boxy has sunk to a new low if they are deleting subscriber comments. That in and of itself confirms that Boxy is a dishonest company and people should subscribe at their own risk.

Lacy Wilson

This is in response to Punkykiki, I am not bashing anything you’ve said but in regards to the company not guaranteeing every charmer certain items, it actually has been confirmed that everyone will receive the Celestial Thunder pallet. Not to be confused with the Celestial Storm pallet by the same company. The Celestial Thunder pallet is exclusive to Boxycharm as of right now. It could be released for retail sale later on. As for the other items, you’re right, we don’t know for sure what items we will be getting. There are so many variations so I don’t think its that they’re being deceptive because it clearly says “you could receive one of these items”. Also, I personally think that’s half the fun. You get a few spoilers but then you are left guessing as to what the remaining items will be. I don’t think that’s deception. If you go on Instagram, facebook or YouTube, you can follow a few accounts that are in direct contact with Joe, the CEO and he gives them sneak peeks. If you’re not you should follow Joe on social media, he’s always posting videos with hidden little easter eggs in the background and he gives great info about boxycharm and all the stuff they’re working on. Also you should follow “boxyscoop” or “boxycharmsneakpeek” on Instagram. Those are two of my favorites accounts and they have super up to date, reliable info.

As for the items we know about so far, I am getting the Kypris Serum. I would be okay receiving any of the other variations except the DoC lippie. I’m not a lipstick girl. Cant wait to see what other spoilers we get in the weeks to come.

Punkykiki

Hi Lacy! I have not seen any spoilers other than what was on MSA, but if they said everyone will get the palette, that should be happening. 😺 The thing is, I’m not going to go chasing after Boxycharm on every social media platform. I think a lot of subscribers love that aspect of Boxy and I can see where it would be fun, but it’s just not something I’m inclined to do. My reason for commenting was to explain what was and wasn’t deceptive advertising practices and the difference in truly making false claims vs leading people on with wording that can be interpreted to mean something that it really does not. They absolutely did that last month with the Smashbox liner or Paula’s Choice or Mellow Brow Gel. If the average person read it, she/he would think that meant that one of those products would be in his/her box. The big difference is that “the box” may contain anything that is going into the box for that month. “The box” is not anyone’s particular box. Plus, “you may get one of these in your box” is better wording but the spoilers here don’t say that, they say “one of these will be in the box”. Again, “the box” and not “your box” wording can be confusing. So yes, while Boxy isn’t technically scamming, they are definitely misleading their target market. The brow gel may actually have been deceptive but I have not followed that thread. The bait and switch is based on the same premise of “the box” and “your box”. Great spoilers appear, people think they will be getting certain items, money is charged and the next day things have changed drastically. Lacy, I didn’t feel bashed at all and I hope you didn’t either. I think it’s cool that you enjoy the full Boxy experience. I’m just not motivated. Nothing is really exciting anymore…I’ve been an addict for a very long time. I feel so jaded…..😞😸

Nikki

@Punkykiki I agree completely! Very deceptive company. I did not get a DOC eyeshadow palette this month, which I read as if we were ALL getting one. Everything listed above for “spoilers” is nothing more than a possible variant! I got glamglow cleanser, TiS glassy(which I picked), red lip liner, nude gloss, and dark brown brow gel (I’m platinum blonde) box is garbage and with my coconut allergy, I can’t use most of the products even if I wanted too. I thought November’s box looked great and could possibly redeem this current box, until I realized what you said and then compared my box to the current October spoilers.

Alice

That’s what I got. We have every right to be angry.

Jean

I got this exact box, I believe, plus the Tarte Clay Play palette (I subbed using the code). Did you also receive a Tarte palette or just the items you listed? Unless my math is wrong, the value of my box is a little over $150 WITH the “free” Tarte palette and $109 without the palette. I’m ok with what I got, but I’d be bummed if I hadn’t received the Clay Play.

Dot

Box twins ! I loved my BC for October !

Stephanie

I’m very confused about this subscription bc the MSA spoilers say “the (month) box WILL include” and then lists a few products with the OR qualification, which lets us know we will receive one but not both items. To me that is really strong language which means if you order a box you WILL receive one of those two items. Is it not a huge problem then that some subscribers don’t receive either of those items at all? The spoilers I’m looking at here on MSA for the October doc palette and the smash box liner/Paula’s choice do not say SOME boxes will include or ONE version of the box will include. Any attorneys on here? I just don’t see how Boxycharm can slip by with that language. Am I misunderstanding? I’m a new subscriber and I’m kind of wondering what I got myself into bc even though this is kinda a mystery box I don’t usually order something unless there is customization, or beauty quiz follow through, or firm spoilers.

Hannah Watson

Just like for October when they said we would get paulas choice, smash box eyeliner OR brow gel. And most people didn’t get any of those products. Including myself.

Alice

I’m not an attorney, but I am a language expert. You are correct about their wording, and BC is committing advertising fraud by this practice. What is equally disturbing is how MSA is supporting this practice and not addressing it with us…the consumers. Complete silence by MSA to our concerns.

Cady

Very true. I think the key to being happy with Boxycharm is goin in without any preference for what you get.

Ashley

You are so lucky to have received the Paula’s Choice. I have 3 boxes and I didn’t get it any of them. You are so right with everything you said. Most people thought they were either going to get the Smashbox eyeliner or the Paula’s Choice this month, but I didn’t even get the Smashbox eyeliner in any of my boxes either. Also, one of them didn’t have a DOC palette.

Dani

The no palette thing is what’s blowing me away. It’s happened to several people this month. In my five years with Boxycharm that was the one and only thing you could for sure count on. Everyone always got a palette. It might be different colors or sizes or retail values but no one got a box without some type of palette, and almost always the same brand. I cannot believe they’re no longer including the one item they’re so popular and well known for in every box. That’s really not fair at all. I realize some people don’t actually want a palette but until they truly start using our profile/preferences, they should continue to send them to all customers as they have for years. The very least they could’ve done was announce this change so customers would be made aware of such a big change. But of course they might lose customers, more importantly MONEY, that way or worse yet, lose potential new business by being so forthcoming and that’s just not going to happen.

Jen

I have 2 boxes and got the exact same things in both boxes, has this been your experience as well?

Amy

I would love the becca! Especially since I dont wear lip products

Freyal Bhavsar

I also wish to have Becca as I already receive Dose of Colors liquid lipstick in one of previous boxes.

I do not want Dominique Cosmetic eyeshadow as I dont like this brand. I did not like DC lipgloss that I received previously.

Krista

I have only been with boxy a few months but I noticed that in the charm room the prices of items are the same as their home websites. The only benefit of the charm room is to let users use their charM points towards products right? The charm room does not have discounted items? Just a place to use up our saved charm points towards getting a discounted product? Sorry if that’s confusing.

Mik

Yep. That’s it. For example, if you have 250 Charm points, that equates to $2.50 to use towards a Charm Room product.

Krista

Thanks!

Ams

Celestial thunder isn’t a palette.. the DC palette is called Celestial Storm! I bought it myself and it’s so good, so If I get it again, I’m going to give it as a Christmas gift to someone!

Mik

I think that Celestial Thunder is a mini version of Celestial Storm that is exclusive to Boxycharm.

SquirrelyGirl

This is correct. It’s a smaller palette exclusive to boxy. I’m excited about it

Tiffany

Oh my goodness! You’re right! This makes me reconsider whether I want the November box or not. How strange.

Hannah

I am not a subscriber but am considering switching from Ipsy to Boxy. Just a couple questions- can we opt out of items entirely? I don’t want another single highlighter and it’s on my list with ipsy to not send- does boxy allow you to opt out as well?
Also are we allowed to skip a box here and there like we can with ipsy?
Does anyone know if I were to subscribe now (the 12th) would I still be allowed to choose an item for November?

When one subscribes, is one allowed to immediately fill out a list of things they want and don’t want? Or do I rate things as I go along? I’ve only made it to the payment screen and didn’t want to hit subscribe just yet
Thanks!

Rachel

Boxy charm is a great deal, but has the biggest complainers out of any subscription I have. Every month they have at least one awesome product that’s worth more than the box alone, usually 2 or 3 products that are good. For $21 (now 25) There’s usually 1 or 2 items that I don’t like that I give away or trade, but it’s still such a good deal that it doesn’t matter. They seem to go by the profile for every box that I’ve gotten lately, and any time I’ve reached out to customer service they’ve been responsive.

You definitely have to choose within their extremely small window, so that stinks, but you just need to make sure you do it in time. The boxes always take forever to arrive, but if you don’t stand by the mailbox waiting, that’s not that big of a deal. I’ve just started to expect that it will take a long time. Even with those things, I still think it’s a great deal.

Mik

Danelle summed it up well. Boxycharm is going up to $25 matching the Ipsy Glam Bag Plus price point. I’ve only had Boxycharm for two months and I’ve already received two black eyeliners, a mascara, and a brow gel. Too many basic eye products. One product was a Hollywood and Vine $7 eyeliner pencil (that honestly is worth about $2.50…not even waterproof). I am not sure if this is even a real brand. I can’t find it anywhere. I think that Boxycharm might have trademarked this product. The brow gel was not even full-sized, even though the card insert stated the full-size value). Would like to see better curation. However, there is a lot of value in their palettes and you will at least receive one other product that might make you feel as though you got your money’s worth. If you sign up now, you will not get the Dose of Colors palette. You will get the Tarte palette that they are using to lure you in.

Liz

I am a new subscriber this month. I used the Tarte coupon code and gor both the Tarte Clay Play and the DOC Sassy Siennas palette. I was happy with my box!

Danelle

No skipping. No opting out. They don’t use your profile. So I be prepared for 500 variations other than the one you’re dying for. They keep saying they are going to use out profiles. But yeah- so far no. If you’re new to Boxy you will most likely have a good experience for a while. The long term subscribers are getting salty with all the bait and switch and filler items. They just started letting us pick an item but be diligent in the time frame allowed. Charm room never had anything to use your charms on- the good stuff is gone instantly. If you’re wanting to try new things and like palettes black eyeliner and mascara then you’re gonna like it.

Hannah

Very helpful, thanks for the detailed response!

Tiffany Schmidt

Love the November spoilers. I chose the Kypris Serum for November and added on the Juice Beauty eye treatment. I want the Celestial Thunder palette so bad and will be good with either the DOC liquid lipstick or the Becca shimmering skin perfector but would prefer the DOC lipstick

Ashley

After we are billed, there will be 12 more variants with only a few select people getting the DOC and the Becca. 🙄

Alice

And, I’ll never forget, or forgive, this October Tarte/DOC scam. I SO wish I hadn’t renewed for multi-months. When it’s done, I’m out of BC. They’ll never get another cent from me.

Ashley

I did cancel for a while but got sucked back in with the Tarte promo. Shame on me for thinking things would be different. When I was subbed before, I would always receive the lesser valued box each month without fail. I read a comment before on their Instagram page where someone stated that the box you get is determined from where it ships out from. According to her, the boxes shipped out from Georgia usually have the lesser sought out variations. I found that to be true for myself but don’t know exactly how accurate it is. She claimed to have got this info from one of their CSR. 🤷‍♀️

RubyWooWhoo

Exactly. And those other variants will be wildly less sought-after or far, far lower quality products from small, unknown manufacturers so they can inflate and manipulate the retail values on the products to meet the $125 claimed value of the box. Anyone paying attention should be familiar with the Boxy song and dance by now.

Ash_Kay

Where are people finding out what variation number they got? Where can I access that list?

Sung

It’s on the bottom left small No. with heart front page. The paper comes with box show you value of items and stuff.

CJ

There are a few new things in the charm room. An elemis facial oil…

Jess

Yes i want the doc lippie. I already own 4 and i luv them. They do smear when u eat but its ok.
