So my October box was 1lb. No dimensions and I got :

– DOC palette in baked Browns – happy with bc the colors are great for fall/winter
– TIS – glassy skin balm happy to try out
– Iconic London- in barely Nude – probably use as a dab in middle of my lips for a dimension of color over a darker matte lipstick
– Paula’s choice – so glad I got this cant wait to use it
-Jonteblu lip liner pencil – in hot red – blah

Overall very happy with BC this month 🥰🥰

Hope you all got what ya want !!!

Denise Atkinson

Wow you must have been a very good girl this year!! You got the elusive Paula’s choice and you aren’t even a influencer (or are you🤨😜) lol. Congrats to you 👍👍

Dot

Lol 😂😂 thanks Denise – made me laugh – yeah I couldn’t believe it either – I usually get everything I never wanted lol

Jess

I got my box today, variation 17. I got the Blushing Berries palette and Iconic gloss in Sex Kitten. They don’t look bad together. I also received the Iconic setting spray which to be honest smells like my Grandma. I also got a cruddy black pencil liner and the mellow brow gel in dark brown. I’m strawberry blonde… I tried it out just to be funny and I look like I have clown eyebrows. 😫 Better than my broken water bottle last month? idk idk

Mimi

My email spoilers were correct but during Addons the mascara and original spray said box items under Oct box so I didn’t order them in addons… Well my 4th and 5th items were actually a Laura Geller Baked Gelato Swirl Illuminator in Diamond Dust and a black Illuminati Cosmetic Sponge. I’m definitely not mad about it. I have plenty of mascara , and I did add on the Iconic spray in Glow. Almost ordered a makeup sponge earlier today and now I don’t have to. 🙂

Jacki

I received my box variation 27❤️ And it contains Paulas Choice!!
My DoC is covered in shadow. The brush is brown, the palette is covered inside and out, the inside of the box is dirty, and the outside of the box has shadow. Did anyone else notice this?

Denise Atkinson

Same with mine but nothing was broken. I thought the brush was used it was so dirty. Oh well

Ashley

What was your weight

Kenley

What was your weight?

Pnkl8y

Imagine how much happier people would have been if they just did the DOC palettes and the customization was to choose your colors. Everyone would get the same thing and a customization at the same time.

I am new to this, but I don’t understand all of the variables. Pick the products, hit the value mark, and make customizations simple – same type of product/value and customize brand, type or color.

Alice

See, but that makes too much sense, though! 😉

JM

Hi everyone, I’m looking to trade my baked Browns palette for any of the others! Let’s swap

Heather

I have blushing berries to trade.

Jm

Hi heather do you still have blushing berries?

SunnyT

My Mother In Law received her tracking with box weight (1.65 ). She signed up for the Tarte promotion.
She did not get the spoiler email with a Dose pallete so we assume she will not get one. I’m thinking she will receive the Tarte Blush pallete, which would be fine by me. I received Clay Play last month and I gave her my Dose Blushing Berries Pallete. Whichever free pallete that comes she is giving to me.

Tiffany Schmidt

I emailed BC and they told me everything I’m getting in my October box

DOC blushing berries palette (so excited it’s the one I wanted)

Touch in Sol balm (my choice)

Iconic London gloss in love struck

Smashbox always on eyeliner (excited for this but would’ve loved Paula’s Choice)

Black makeup sponge (would’ve preferred the tweezers but as long as the quality is good I can always use more makeup sponges)

Happy with my box and it shipped out yesterday! Can’t wait to get it

CJ

Wait what, we will not get DOC if we used Tarte code? What a joke. If I resubbed today will I get a spoiler email? I only signed back up hoping for Marvelous Mauves

Redhed36

I’m getting the Tarte palette and a DOC palette.

CJ

Are you new or resubbing? I haven’t subbed to them in about a year and I finally caved for DOC and thought the Tarte was a nice extra. I will be disappointed for sure.

Dot

So some company OnTrac is delivering mine , wth? Company is this lol
Anyway my dimensions per their tracking is 0x0x0
And 1lb 🙄🤔
No dimensions what in the world am I getting ? Now I’m really curious lol

Redhed36

I just received another email from them stating I will be receiving my Nov choice item, the Kypris.

Redhed36

I received an email from Boxy stating I would be receiving the Tarte palette. The DOC palette was also one of my spoilers. I know some people were saying they get one or the other. The fact I received an email makes me think it might ship separately like the IT moisturizer promo they had back around June.

Pnkl8y

I subbed last month with a free gift and everything came at once. It was luxe though so it might have been easier to put everything in the larger box.

Jenn Marie

I got the purple eyeliner if any one wants to trade.

SunnyT

I received my box today.
The 3 spoiler items emailed to me on Monday was included in my box.
I received Blushing Berries eyeshadow pallete (OMG it is absolutely gorgeous!)
The Iconic London lipgloss in Lovestruck,
Setting spray in Original, Purple eyeliner and Mellow brow tamer.
Box #17 and weight was 9.1 oz.

Eve

Just received my box today! My box weighed 0.93lbs.

– DOC marvelous mauves
– Touch in sol
– Illuuminati sponge
– Iconic London in nearly nude
– Elemis face mask

Hope this helps someone

Ashley

Received my box today. I got version 25 and I signed up using the Tarte promo. Box weight 1.7lbs.

Glamglow Cleanser
Touch-in-Sol Glassy Balm
Iconic London Lipgloss in Nearly Nude -rather had Lovestruck
Becca Anti-Fatigue Under Eye Primer
Jonteblu Lip Liner
Tarte Clay Play Palette

Wish I had got a DOC palette too but all in all I’m okay with my box. I’m happy I got the Becca.

melpodede

I also signed up with TrickorTarte code and my box weighs 1.6 lbs. My three preview items include the glassy balm, glamglow cleanser and lip gloss in nearly nude. Expected arrival date is 10/12.

My other boxycharm subscription arrived 10/9 and weighed 1.0 lbs. I’m hoping the extra 0.6 oz of weight is my DOC and Tarte palette!!!

Charlotte

I’m sure this is the box I’m getting. I’m happy to get the Becca, but yeah, this was NOT the box that was advertised, nor the box I signed up for. I’m canceling (and emailing Boxy to tell them WHY).

Julie B

Thanks for sharing. I resubbed with the Tarte promo and am resigned to the fact that Boxy scammed us but hopefully I’ll get the Clay Play palette instead of the blush one. Someone needs to explain the definition of “free gift” to Boxy.

blondie1021

The Tarte Pallet IS a Free gift, it is a 6th item in a box that promises 4-5 full size.

Redhed36

I signed up for the Tarte palette one of my three spoilers was the DOC Sassy Sienna’s. Now I still have to wait and see if I actually get the Tarte palette but I am supposed to.

Ves

Got my box today it was Variation #2 and weighed 1.1 pounds

Sneak peak was:
*DOS Baked Browns
*Touch in Sol Glassy Skin Balm (choice from email pick)
*Iconic London Nude Lipgloss

Other two items:
*Chella Tweasers
*Skin&Co Truffle Therapy Radiant Dew Mist

Overall I am happy with what I received. My top choice for palette was the Blushing Berries but Baked Browns was my second

Amanda

I haven’t seen anyone post that they are receiving the Pretty Cool palette yet – and that’s the one I REALLY wanted.

It says I’m getting Marvelous Mauves.

Anybody getting Pretty Cool???

Jackie

I’m pretty sure I’ve seen someone post that the are receiving Pretty Cool. I wish I knew what I was receiving, I still haven’t received an email.

AB

Newbie here: Is it normal for boxy to ship without sending an email or updating the tracking. ? when do they normally sip, around the 10th? Im tired of stalking the website and i havent received an email yet, not even for the choice. =)

blondie1021

Sometimes I get a shipping notice, sometimes I don’t. I setup a fedex account that gives me notifications though so I can always track it that way.

Jackie

Mine will be here on Thursday. I received an email that it shipped on the 5th, but not one that shows spoilers/choice.

Ashley

Has anyone received the Paula’s choice with a box weight of 1.03lbs?

Sarah

I got variation #27
1.1 lbs
First 3 spoilers in an email:

DOC Baked Browns
IL prep set glow spray in original
IL lip plumping gloss in sex kitten

Then in box today:
Paulas choice exfoliant *was my choice item
Hollywood n vine kohl liner

🤗🥰

Fieryphoenix

I’m getting Marvelous Mauve and Iconic Nude, anyone interested in swap of for blushing berries and anything else but nude to swap

Alisha A Miner

I’m getting the Dose of Colors Snow Angel palette if anyone is looking to swap. I already have Marvelous Mauves and Blushing Berries…would be very interested in any of the others.

pnkl8y

Interested in the Siennas?

AK

Sorry to break it to anyone, but it was just posted on boxycharm’s most recent ig post. That the dose of colors Pallete is only for “some” charmers. So if you got a preview with a cleanser for your October box, your box isn’t coming with a dose palette.

Charlotte

To those saying that new subscribers are going to get a Tarte face palette instead of a Dose of Colors palette: no, that is NOT how it is supposed to work. The Tarte palette is supposed to be our free gift. The description of the coupon code, as written in the above post, is “use TRICKORTARTE to get a free Tarte Clay Play Face Shaping Palette OR Tarte Tarteist™ PRO Glow Cheek Palette.” The key word here is FREE. NOT in place of another palette. If Boxy has decided to substitute a Tarte palette they promised us for FREE in place of a DoC palette, then that is wrong and blatant false advertising, and they deserve to be called out on it. It may well be that not everyone will get a DoC palette, but the argument that the Tarte palette somehow replaces it is false and gaslighting. New subscriber bonuses have never counted towards the box before, and Boxy shouldn’t be allowed to get away with it now.

Liz, I would honestly appreciate if you would get some clarification from BoxyCharm on this, since it IS a coupon code that was advertised on MSA. I think I speak for a lot of new subscribers when I say I would not have used that coupon code if I thought it meant that I would be getting one of those two Tarte palettes in place of a DoC palette.

Iris

Agree. MSA/Liz hold some responsibility here because they are part of 5his advertising and do make a profit from this site. We deserve full disclosure and explanation.

Denise Atkinson

Liz is only posting the information that she received initially. if boxycharm later switched it up then that’s boxycharm changing from what they had initially said this site posts spoilers as they get them and if boxycharm leader of decided to put Glam glow instead of a dose palette there’s no way for her to know that until they start sending amount and everyone starts finding out they got screwed over the only way to save yourself from this is to screenshot boxy charms exact spoilers to hold them accountable not the messenger

Jacki

I have to agree with you. The offer was not for an undisclosed free cleanser plus opt for a Tarte palette instead of a Dose of Color palette. If boxy was looking for a batch of one-and-done customers, I believe they have met their goal

Jenny

Me too. i emailed boxy and *crickets* I didn’t even get spoilers since i cancelled before choice. way to lose someone who was willing to be a re-subscriber.

Charlotte

They certainly lost this subscriber. I was ready to make the switch from Ipsy GBP, too. Too bad, so sad, Boxy.

Ashley

If you look at the first October Boxycharm spoiler, it says Charmers would either get a DOC palette or a Tarte palette, so I’m assuming all the people who signed up this month is getting the Tarte and 5 other items, just not the DOC.

Iris

It does not say that. The promo code was for either a Tarte clay Play OR Tarte blush palette. FREE item for new subscribers separate from the BOX items. The BOX spoiler said ALL subscribers would receive one of the DOC palettes shown OR the ilovesarahii palette. MSA silence here disturbs me.

Charlotte

My comment was specifically addressing the rumors that new subscribers will be receiving the free Tarte face palette from the promo *in place of* a DoC palette. To reiterate, I’m aware it’s a possibility not everyone will receive a DoC palette.

AK

Yeah the key here is reading and understanding the promo! I’ve seen boxycharm respond to multiple people from their account on Instagram, “only some charmers” will receive the dose Pallete. Other commenters Getting passive aggressive and mad toward other people posting on here trying to help isn’t the solution.

Michelle

They aren’t replacing the Dose of Colors palette with the Tarte palette. You will get the Tarte palette plus 5 other products. Keep in mind that the Dose of Colors palettes are variants, not everyone is getting one, most people are getting the Glamglow cleanser as their variant item instead of the Dose. So the Tarte palette MAY be the only palette in your box but you will get a total of 6 items.

Charlotte

Michelle, this was my understanding of the promo, too, I’ve been seeing folks in the comments here tell new subscribers that they are getting the Tarte palette IN PLACE OF the DoC palette, and I wanted to make it clear that would not be acceptable behavior by Boxy. I don’t think Boxy would do that, but I also don’t want people to accept being scammed.

Michelle

Also, just wanted to note that I resubscribed in October with the code after cancelling for September. I got both the Tarte Clay Play and a Dose palette in my box today, so they’re not replacing the Dose palette with the Tarte. It appears that new subs and people who cancelled quite a while ago are getting the cleanser in place of the Dose. They did say on the spoiler posts on FB, IG, and on here that ‘some charmers’ would receive the Dose…
