  1. OMG I cannot believe they are giving us this Palette for December. I love all colors of eye shadows but they really should be giving us something more suitable for Winter that majority of us could wear. I would think the December box would be the best since it is Christmas and all. I will be giving this one to my niece for xmas which is fine, I can always give products to my nieces if they don’t work for me. It is just a little disappointing to be getting this one and brand in the last box of the year. I have not checked the foundation sample I received yet but looking at the color of the package, they all really look way too dark for me. It would be great to get a foundation or concealer in future boxes but they really need to get the colors right for each of our skin tones.

  2. Thanks for another great review! I wondered if anyone knows what time the Boxy Pop Up shop opens for current members? I know it opens Monday November 11th just wondering what time. I never get to shop cause I’m always late CAUSE they never post a dang time! I set my alarm for 7am central time.

    • 3:30 pm ET according to the site

  3. these palettes are awful…i already hate the palette they sent in november. i’m holding out tho in case they have a concealer/foundation next month

    • Agree!

    • I have serious doubts about getting the correct shade. I received the pretty vulgar concealer card in this last box and even the lightest shade is too dark. And there’s nowhere I’m a website to say this. We’re going to be stuck with a lot of makeup that we won’t be able to use because it’s not going to be even close two are correct shade. Most companies have at least 50 different foundations and we got a card with four different choices in it. I have zero hopes to get the correct shade at all. I can’t wait until I can cancel

      • I got a Becca foundation card. It had three samples so tiny that I can’t tell if one is a match, I can only rule out the darkest of the three. It would be a massive potshot to guess that either of the other two are right. They were literally one or two drops. Not enough to do a stripe down from a cheek to your neck. Definitely no way to see if the formula is any good or if it settles in lines.

        • I believe it is a drop to test skin shade, and you can request more samples if they shade cards aren’t correct. They want to send you the product to determine if the formula is any good, or if it settles into lines.

          • already BC isnt working at 230
            error message

          • MAN this sucks noting can be added to the cart

      • Same. As soon as I receive the products they owe me I’m gone. There is no way BC could pull off foundations or concealers when they cannot get choice items correct. I have no confidence in their business.

  4. Beccah,
    Thank you for the info on the shadow/ lip ” book” of the month. I just subscribed. 🙂

  5. Storybook cosmetics now has a monthly subscription box! A different book every month starting with Little Women! Comes with a full size lip product and 3 full size eyeshadows!

  6. I for one am happy to be getting Luxe for December. The shades in the Storybook palette in that box look a lot more wearable for me.

  7. I have purchased eyeshadow palettes from Storybrook before and the quality was awful. Lots of fallout and poor pigmentation. As soon as I saw the spoilers for this brand I cancelled for December. Their are much better brands out there, especially when you take into consideration how expensive they are! No thanks, I saved the money I would have spent and put it towards the Tati volume 1 eyeshadow palette instead.

    • Yes! The Tati palette is to die for. I want one fo sho! Lol

  8. I can’t believe people don’t like these! I’m getting Boxyluxe, but I wouldn’t mind one of the minis in addition to it. My husband purchased the wizard brush set for me, when it first came out. It’s very high quality. Their items are unique and the quality seems to be quite high.

  9. This brand has good reviews on You Tube. I’m excited to give them a try. I don’t always wear really bright colors but I’ve found that using a nice taupe all over with a color on the lid makes almost anything wearable or under the eye as a fun pop of color. I love being able to try new to me brands!

  10. I get kind of upset when I write a thoughtful, long post and it disappears. MSA could you tell us why our posts disappear at times?

    • I think it just takes a minute to post. I’ve posted the same thing twice multiple times because I didn’t see it there at first then I go back and both comments are there!
      I see your longer post that was posted three minutes prior to this comment below. 😊

  11. Really these are awful, I am 56 years old, and while I think that anyone can use any products their comfortable with as they mature, I have found somethings just hold no interest for me anymore. I do see 70 year old ladies with Disney clothes and purses etc….etc…. Yet I prefer a more classic, plain, neutral look, in both Cosmetics and clothing. I sometimes instead of variations I wish Boxy offered a classic and a trendy box. Some of us just are not comfortable with bold, glitter or neon Palettes any longer.

    • Agree! And i wish they would come up with some less obscure brands

    • Agree. Why couldn’t one of these been in classy colors? Or, offer these as a choice.

    • As someone who shares your age, I ask why don’t you just purchase what you like? I’m just curious. While I am considerably bolder in my eye looks (even hits of orange and purple), I buy what I like and at this age, would not leave it to a subscription box to satisfy my make up look. Again, I am just curious because of the age. We are not kids who can’t save a buck or two to get what we want even if on a limited income (thankfully I am not) but I don’t get why an oldster would depend on a sub box? I picked up November box mostly for gifts for the nieces (and one nephew) and grands. Of course, I’m keeping the serum or eye cream.. lol. I enjoy getting sub boxes and cancelling whenever I don’t need/or will gift. Plus Sephora and Ulta shopping, I am good. Having said that, I hope sub box life gets you want you want or need and was thinking maybe the occasional build your own box would be more useful to you as BC is not geared to the over 50 set at all! They are building a market and babe, we ain’t it. .. Just my old senior .02.

  12. I’ll be gifting or donating both eyeshadow palettes for luxe and premium. They aren’t bad but it’s just not something I will enjoy. I do appreciate Boxycharm bringing semi-indie brands to the table. Storybook does have a small YouTube influencer following just not as huge as other premium brands.

    Since I plan on gifting/donating I may do double storybook based on ages. 🙂

  13. Horrible. Skipping

  14. Those are awful. Definitely gonna unsub for December.

  15. Meh. For some reason, I could never bring myself to put red around my eyes… 😂😂😂

    • Yes! LOL Who wears that??!! Halloween is over, but Mardi Gras coming up!

    • November will be my second box and I’m already thinking about cancelling. These eyeshadow palette color schemes are horrid. I need something that I can wear on a daily basis. I work in a professional work place. It is pointless to gave a subscription box if I can’t use the products in it. These would be great for Halloween or costume party 🤡

      • It’s the same for me, my second box was Nov and no shadows suitable for my workplace. December looks worse! Disappointed and going to cancel after I receive November.

      • I’d you do decide to cancel and skip out on December I suggest keeping up to date on the spoilers for January, February, March etc; because most of the time people are complaining that they overload us on neutrals. That’s probably why they’ve been trying to give us some colors… me personally, neutrals are my favorite but I have TONS of these palettes so I welcome different colors right now.

        • Thank you!

        • Thanks for the tip! I will have to cancel. After seeing this spoiler. I don’t think Boxycharm will workout for me. Unfortunately they don’t allow you to just skip a month 🤷🏽‍♀️

  16. do not want any storybook Pallette. I know Boxy has been popular for it’s eyeshadow Pallets, but I Sure wish we could choose if we want a eye pallet or skincare item. A eyeshadow pallet with moderate use can last 3-4 years if your getting 12 of them a year, you have to throw them out, I do not give people used eye shadow pallets for sanitary and hygiene reasons. I threw out 10 barely used pallets this month. I feel wasteful.

    • Check out YouTube videos of people you trust and reviews of the palettes from people whose makeup you like of the palettes in the box. If you dont think you’ll love it donate it or give it to a friend. I dont touch palettes I dont think I’ll use. And always make sure that swatch photos are 1 swatch! I’ve fallen for “omg these are so pigmented” lines and then found out the pic had numerous swipes to build up the color.

      And shadows can be sanitized so throwing them out isnt really necessary.

    • Yay! Great job BOXY! This charmer girl is super excited to get this baby! Yep, bring it on!!! LOL

  17. Nope. After the weird color palette in November, these are just adding to the pain. November is my final box. Boxycharm doesn’t work for me. It was a very short relationship, lol. I’m really glad I got the Tarte make-your-own-box! Beats the heck out of this.

  18. Sorry but neither

  19. These are adorable, I’m totally down to get minis since I don’t want the boxyluxe so far. If I get green I’m ready to trade anyone who got the brown! I’m full up on Brown and red shadows but I’m never ever gonna wear green so… Rambling!

  20. I want that Robin Hood palette!!!!

  21. I’ll be trading to get the 2 minis. For me, it’s not really about the colors. I have lots of people in my life who love kitschy packaging. They are CF, too

  22. Meh. I may finally take a break from Boxy.

    • Same. I’m waiting for this months to ship so I can cancel. I personally get more pleasure out of the regular Ipsy bag. This will be my second and final box.

      • Same.

  23. So we get the 2 palette boxyluxe+ regular.

    If your boxyluxe member???

    • I doubt it. I would think the mini palette would be replaced by the bigger one for luxe. Luxe only has 3 base items in common with the regular box.

    • Yep, you’ll get the big palette in the luxe. And you’ll get one of these palettes in the base box. And if you’re signed up to get premium, you’ll also get a dose of color palette, but you will have the option of switching for the same palette in the luxe. But by default, it’s set to give you the DOC palette in premium.

  24. I’m cool with that – i’m a little worried about the quality because as far as I know (feel free to correct me) these are not part of their normal collection so I imagine they are being made specifically for this but I do have one of their larger palettes and am overall happy with the quality

  25. how cute are these 🙂 Im getting the Boxyluxe but I kinda wish I could get a base box too. Either way I cant wait for dec.

    • Boxyluxe is getting the bigger version of a storybook cosmetics palette but these little ones are cute!

    • I was thinking the exact same thing. I’d love to have a full size book & a mini book. I’m filled to the eyeballs with browns & red eyeshadows. So I’d really love the Robin Hood mini book.

      • I actually am more interested in these smaller palettes than the one in the luxe box

      • Me too! I would love to have the Robin Hood one! Better yet the full size book has a pretty blue in it. So I’m hoping for the Robin Hood in my box on my second account so I can have both a blue and a green! My profile actually says I prefer green/blue eyeshadows because I’ve been trying to build up that color in my collection…. too bad they don’t actually utilize the quiz’s 95% of the time and I’ll probably end up with the other one

    • All the palettes will be add ons! So you can grab whatever you aren’t getting in your box!

      • Does boxy do addons too? I thought that was ipsy. And are you sure these will be available? I may have to sign up.

  26. Weirdly enough, as a Packers fan, the green & yellow palette would work for me.

  27. Because it’s December I think I was expected something more fun. I might cancel Boxy for this month.

  28. Not to seem negative, but these look hideous.

    • Yup, I agree. Packaging is cute, but the shades are horrendous.

      • Do they hate us? Because these are awful!

        • It’s got to be a joke. These may be the worst color collections I’ve ever seen.

      • I do not see myself wearing either of those eye shadow palettes.
        I also think this will be my last Boxycharms…the colors I have been getting are horribly dark n too bold for me. I filled out my preferences n I do not get nothing even close.

      • I’m sorry, but these palettes are so ugly! I’d have no clue what to do with them.

      • These are so…. baaaad. Makes me want to cancel & get a new sub. Feel like I’m being let down too much.

    • You got dat right.

    • These are awful, I hope we don’t actually get these. It would be nice to get something other than an eyeshadow palette.

    • They look awful. Last couple of boxes were awful.

  29. When can we cancel the regular december boxy till?

    • Hey, Julie! According to the FAQ on their website, you need to cancel before the first of the month in order to prevent being billed for that month’s box. I hope that helps!
