Nicole

What did those of you resubscribing (or new subscribers) with 1.6 or 1.7 end up getting?!

LISA wilmore

Hello!
just got late shipping notice.
Im repeated subscriber.
Box weighs 1.5 lb and dimensions are 13x5x4 in.

Any clue whats coming?
I never got any notice to pick an item.

Thank everyone for the input!!!!

Rach

You’re getting one of the Tarte palettes. They’re heavy.

Indygrr

Ugh! Boxycharm definitely DOES NOT use the survey either. I am literally the only person that would have LOVED to get either the eyeliner or the lip liner because I need both of those and I don’t care if they only cost $7 if they are decent.

Also, as far as Boxy not paying any attention to the survey…under the question of what skin care do you prefer to receive, I checked every single item of skin care EXCEPT masks and guess what? Instead of the lip or eye pencil (which are items I said I would like to receive often), they threw in 2 masks that I said I would like to receive NEVER!!

Just as a note, the brand of the face masks (Go2 Beauty) is part of a larger company that has abandoned this particular trademark. So if you loved these things (which I promise you wouldn’t) you probably can’t buy for long. I thought this was the point of Boxy, to expose you to great products so you can buy them later.

Tammy IKONEN

I finally got my box and I have to tell you I loved the eyeshadow palette in mauve oh my God it’s so beautiful

Sharon Walsh

If anyone wants a Dose of Colors palette ……I have the Sassy Sienna’s……….is totally wrong colors for me (if only they looked at my profile)….would be willing to exchange for anything.

Anyone???

Amanda H.

Hi everyone. I haven’t seen this variation yet so I figured I would share. I just got mine today and I actually am really happy with it. I got the DOC- blushing berries, TIS- glassy skin balm, Iconic London plumping lipgloss- lovestruck, Smashbox liquid liner, and Illuminati makeup sponge. My box weighed .7 lbs, dimensions 6x4x2. Oh and it is variation 40. I also didn’t know there were that many lol. Hope this helps!!

Rach

Want to know the worst part? They literally CHEATED new subscribers out of the DOC palette, yet I’m willing to bet that it will never be addressed by Joe or Boxy. New customers were told that their welcome gift would be a Tarte palette. They weren’t told that they would receive the welcome palette in place of Dose of Colors. It seems that about 75% of new subscribers didn’t receive a DOC palette, but it wasn’t mentioned anywhere as a possibility.

My box was lost by DHL and I emailed Boxy. They couldn’t even be bothered to answer my questions. An actual person was responding, but they kept sending generic scripted responses.

denise

Worst box I have ever received. Honestly, why fill out a profile when it is totally ignored. Ugh, over it

brittany meghan

Hey Guys!

I received variation 35. My box weighed 1.2 lbs. I got the following products:

– Tartiest Pro Glow Cheek Palette
– Touch In Sol Pretty Filter Glassy Skin Balm
– Iconic London Lip Plumping Gloss in Lovestruck
– Becca Under Eye Brightening Setting Powder
– Chella Slanted tip Tweezers.

The total value of my box was $148.00.

I did reach out to BC regarding the absence of the DOC palette despite their promise to include it for all subscribers, new and old. I am a new subscriber and really want to test out their Customer Service. I will certainly keep those of you who are interested, updated on my CS journey.

Dot

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 !!!

DL

Just got my box and figured I’d report back since I see many with a similar weight trying to figure out what’s in the box. My box weighed 1.6 lbs and contained the free Tarte gift. Dimensions (which were wrong) were listed as 8x8x8. In my box:

Tarte Clay Play palette (free gift)
Sexy Siennas palette
Iconic spray in the darker shade
Tweezers in black
Smashbox black liquid liner
Hank and Henry mascara

Of course I’d make a couple of changes if I got to pick, but I’m pleased with my box overall.

Rochelle

I just received the same box today. Variation #1 plus the Tarte Clay Play palette gwp.
My weight was 1.6 lbs.

They are obviously not looking at preferences though. So many subscribers on here really wanted the advertised palette and I rarely use eyeshadows or liner, but I do like skincare yet received none of the skincare options. I don’t see why they wouldn’t just send the items to subscribers that want them & make everyone happy when they have the ability to do so.

I’m not complaining about my box. I just don’t get why they would ask for preferences and then send the eyeshadow palette to me instead of someone who really wanted it if they weren’t sending it to everyone. Plus they made it sound like everyone was getting one of the DOC palettes so everyone else should have gotten one like advertised anyway. But that’s just my 2 cents 🙂

Amanda

I can see that many of you are bothered by the way Boxy handled this month’s bait and switch. We should all come together, spam all of their social media, and let them knos how we feel about it. If enough of us complain publicly (scaring away new subscribers) then maybe something will change.

They advertised that EVERYONE would get a DoC palette. Anyone who used the code isn’t. Many couple month old subs are not. BUT for some reason they thought it was okay to use extra stock of the Sassy Siennas palette to sell as an add on? While there were still people who wanted one? That’s not okay. I wonder how many of those $12 palettes they sold to make extra money?

How many people actually got an advertised variation? I know I sure didn’t. How many people actually got a milk blur spray, becca primer, Paula’s Choice, or anything else they used to draw people in? Influencers don’t count because we already know they are getting exactly what they should. They can’t have influencers making their commercials with filler boxes. How many people got something they have already got before? Or leftovers from previous boxes?

Is anyone else upset that Boxy has gotten greedy? They’ll gladly make your box suffer so they can sell add ons or add more subscribers. It’s all about selling more boxes and quality has been thrown to the wind. How many of us have been with them for years and helped Boxy make $40 million last year? We deserve better than lip liners we got 2 boxes ago. We deserve better than the influencers who get their boxes for free in exchange for commercials. That’s what they are, you know. Unboxing videos are nothing but free commercials.

If anyone else is fed up with it, let’s all join together and fight for the CEO to open his eyes. Spam social media. Tell anyone asking about becoming a subscriber about your experience. Let them know that once they join, they’ll get nothing that is advertised. Maybe something like that will make them think about their decision to care more about money. Maybe we won’t get a box again that has 36 freaking variations. Maybe we won’t be lied to again about EVERYONE getting a palette, while they sell the ones that were meant for us as an add on. If you didn’t get a doc palette, how do you feel about the people who got 2 or more because they bought them as an add on before they sold out? Or how do you feel about being forced to buy one as an add on because you didn’t get one? Let’s do something about it

Tammy IKONEN

I feel your pain sister I truly do in ipsy is the one that I’m just so angry with these days but I’ll be frank with you I really loved my boxycharm this month.. but I admired your spirit for sure

beatye

count me in. ipsys roll out of their ultimate is the same. thanks for posting this. I’m on board.

Annie

I wish Boxycharm would send out surveys to their subscribers. Once again, I received an eye shadow palette that is not the right color for me. Last month, I got the Violet Voss palette that I will never wear either. I filled out the Beauty Quiz on their website, but I do t think they’ve paid attention to that. Looks like all my friends are getting eyeshadow palettes for Christmas. :/

beatye

I totally agree! I haven’t been happy with boxycharm for awhile

Sung

Got my first box yesterday.

Variation #23

Weight 1.6 lbs with Tarte clay palette vol.2

Touch in sol skin balm

Glamglow cleanser

Iconic london nearly nude

Mello brow gel

Jonteblu lip liner

I do like my BC over all. Tarte palette is my favorite.
I think GBP you get much higher value items than BC.
Next month price go up to $25 and I guess will be getting higher value of items.
I picked kypris as choice so I know at least one of my item is $90.

Amanda

I chose the Kypris as well and I regret it. Everyone chose it and I’m worried that choosing the $90 product will cause the variations to be cheaper filler. The CEO said some boxes will be worth over $200 depending on the item choice. I wish I had chosen the eye cream now because honestly I won’t use the Kypris.

beatye

another box that did not even glance at my preferences, instead, going right for what I specifically indicated not wanting. also, I didn’t receive any item of the Paula’s choice cleanser, eyeliner or brow. really poor and incomplete box. has boxy become too focused on getting bigger without using the customer preferences?

Amanda

I didn’t get any of the variations advertised. I got DoC baked browns, touch in sol, lip gloss, a Steve laurant linee they already sent me a few months ago, and a Laura Geller highlighter. At leaat I think it’s a highlighter. It’s one of those swirled gelato ones but it is a mess when applied. No shimmer only paleness. I’m very upset over this whole variation fiasco. They should either get enough stock to give everyone the same, or look at preferences, or stop selling boxes until they can get their shiz together.

beatye

you write poetry my friend!! I’m sick of the variations, partial cheap products (the gelato? seriously? totally useless and cheap). stop hard selling products that underperform along with a dizzying amount of variation)

Elle

I feel like my box was missing at least one item too and I didnt get any of the variations that were advisertised !

CJ

Did anyone who was a new or resubscriber and received the Tarte AND the Dose of Colors have a weight of 1.66?

Rochelle

I received both in my box that arrived today. My weight was 1.6 lbs though. I received variation #1 that Liz posted.

kristin davenport

I heard all new customers that used the tarte code didn’t get one. We basically got leftover products.

Amanda

It’s not just the cutomers who used the code. Trust me. My mother in law and my cousin both started Boxy 2 months ago because I raved about it so much it convinced them. Neither used the code for free tarte. My mother in law is getting the tarte cheek palette, cousin is getting the tarte eyeshadow. They should have got the dose of colors. What makes me mad is that my mother in law was so excited to get one of those eyeshadows and they screwed her. She can’t use cheek stuff because she has rosacea and she’s older. Why the hell did they sell the Sassy Siennas as an add on if not everyone got what was advertised? Oh yeah, because it’s all about making extra money and screw the customer. They know they can do whatever they want to us and still get rich.

Sunny

My box was 0.7 pounds – variation 39.

-Dose Marvelous Mauves Palette
-Touch in Sol Skin Balm (this was what I picked)
-Iconic lip gloss in nude – not a great color for me but my daughter will probably take it
-Illuminati makeup sponge – they say this is a $21 value. Hmmm…
-Tarte liquid highlighter

So I guess it could have been worse. I was hoping for Becca undereye primer, Milk blur spray, or smashbox eyeliner. Or Paula’s choice. And wanted the Iconic gloss in the pink color. But at least I didn’t get the Glamglow wash again and thankfully did not get the brown palette.

Mixed feelings on this one.

Tracy

Did anyone get the Milk Blur Spray? I would have liked to try that out of curiosity! Did you like it?

Amanda

That was more than likely influencers only so they can push box sales. That’s all that matters now. Sell more boxes, no matter how the customer feels. Or they kept a big supply to sell as a $12 add on next month.

taylorkato

So in this months box I received the touch in sol balm and marvelous maven eye shadow. I didn’t get any of the items listed with the blender or any of the items from the brow tinted. I did get two of the same color lip liners… that I’ll never wear and was in my questionnaire I never want lip liners. I did get the briogeo don’t despair repair sample that I have 5 of. And a super pepto bismal pink lip gloss which also goes against my profile pics… they are going up in price and down in quality. If it wasn’t for the palette in November spoiler I swear I’d cancel right now. The boxylux was an epic fail I got the water bottle…. im getting really tired if the disappointment.

lauren

Omg. I received the worst box I could imagine. I literally laughed out loud.

A powder blue eyeliner stick…powder blue
The awful skin balm
The mauve dose of color eyeshadows that look terrible
A facewash
A deathly pale pink lipgloss

Crystal

My box was 0.9 lbs and was Variation 32.

I got:
Dose of Colors in Baked Browns
Elemis Superfood Vital Veggie Mask
touch in SOL Glassy Skin Balm
Iconic Lip Gloss in Nearly Nude
Luna by Luna eye pencil in Asteroid

Unfortunately,my DOC palette was destroyed.

Shannon

My palette was ruined too. It seems like they didn’t pad this month’s box as well as past months.

I’m pretty disappointed because I was so excited for Baked Browns.

Yumi

My Baked Brown was also cracked inside, there was eyeshadow all over the inside and outside too. What a mess, but I thought it was a boring palette anyway, I sent them an email with a picture of the damage, hope they just refund me in charms, I don’t want another one. This is my second box, and highly disappointed, go some cheapy black Hollywood liner, Iconic useless spray, too dark lip gloss and some sponge pedi thing. My box was not worth $21 dollars.

Vi

I received my box today and I got the TIS skin balm, DOC baked browns, Iconic London in love struck, 2oz Briogeo and the most wanted Item ever a black eyeliner 😩. My box weighed 0.8 lbs 8x5x2. The TIS is what I chose.

Tracy

We are box twins!

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

SaraP

My 2 boxes were both 0x0x0 and 1LB…it included the Baked Browns palette, Iconic lipgloss, TOS cream (my pick), Chella tweezers, and the Skin & Co spray. If the Skin & Co had been Paula’s Choice it would have been an awesome box but I will never use the Skin & Co =(

Dot

I hate skin & co.. I already go it hope I don’t get it again yuk !! Thanks for update though

Susan

Any one have any luck with their September box? I am due to receive my October box on Friday but my September box STILL hasn’t even shipped. I received various replies such as….a fake tracking code that doesn’t actually exist (no explanation to why they sent me a fake tracking code or apology for doing so once i asked them about it), to an email stating they still have to talk to the supplier about filling the boxes (which to me means we have no clue what will be in these boxes, if they ever arrive)…but no one has actually provided me any explanation as to when I should be receiving the box I paid for over 3 weeks ago or why I’m receiving my October box well BEFORE (hopefully) I receive my September box. And now they’ve just gone radio silent and haven’t replied to me since early last week…

Every email has included the formed response that it takes them 5-10 business days to send out your box. Its been 16 business days….

Rach

Your best bet is to tag Joe about your September box. This is exactly WHY they need real customer service reps. If they made 44 million last year, they can afford to hire people for a CS center and create an app.

Susan

I have posted in Twitter, they asked me to DM them, then they never even read my message to even be able to check my account (as they acted like they wanted to do when they replied to my post) . I messaged Joe in IG, I have sent email replies, I have filled out new email complaints via their website. I have threatened to file claim with BBB and blast social media. Litterally nothing has changed, no one cares or has tried to resolve the problem or work with me. I finally got an email response saying that my box was in the shipping process. But I’ve been told that mutiple times over the past 3 weeks and have learned that, that is just a lie! My box has been in the shipping process for THREE weeks according to them! My account STILL say “ordered” nothing about shipping.

Anyone else have any ideas? I’ve run completely out of patience and this company honestly just doesnt give a sh*t that they’ve stolen my money. I stupidly signed up for 6 months prepaid instead of doing month to month. Otherwise I’d walk away and be done with them forever.

Angie

👏

julesburr

I signed up for Boxycharm and Boxyluxe on September 21st, I got my box on the 30th I think and I got my October box yesterday. THAT is totally unacceptable what they’re doing to you. Go onto their twitter and throw a public hissy fit, I read someone did that and finally got noticed. That’s what I would do. I’d go full b*tch on them. Demand a refund and a box and extras and report them to the BBB. Lol.

Angie

I received both of my boxes today. When I got my emails the tracking info showed the boxes moving around but then on october 6th there was no information then last night it showed they were in my town.

Susan

So you got an email that included tracking number for your September box? Does it also say on Boxycharm.com under your September month that it is shipped and/or include a tracking code? No one has sent me a tracking number expect the one i was provided 2 weeks ago, that Fedex still says doesnt exist nor has it ever. On Boxycharm.com it also only states that my September box was ordered where as the October box states shipped and includes the tracking code.

I was really hoping they just sent the 2 boxes together to save on shipping, but at 1.1lbs and only 9x5x3 in as the dimensions, that’s not possible either.
