  1. Does anyone else think that the palette’s color story is similar to ABH soft glam? Just want to prevent choosing a close duplicate to something I already have. Thanks for your thoughts!!!

  2. First off, I just received my January box and I’m thrilled with it! I signed up late in December and they sent me a December box that I wasn’t overly excited about. But they have redeemed themselves for sure! Now on to February! This will be my first time to select an item and add-ons. I love the pallet colors and want to try the serum. I’m a serum freak. Oh what to chose! Question: What time on the 13th do they open it up to select? Mid-night? 8 a.m.? Just curious.

  3. take the complexion quiz in your profile (under the “quizzes” tab) since that’s what they use to match your foundation shade

    • In this case you get to chose the shade you want. There was an alright not great selection of shades.

  4. Hard choice between the foundation & the serum. I want the serum but don’t want them to change the ingredients list like they did with the last serum. Just hoping that it’s real & with all of the normal ingredients. But it’s a hard choice between that & the foundation.

  5. The serum has pretty good reviews on Sephora. I’m a big fan of Kate’s products and they have really helped transform my skin, especially the “Exfolikate”. I’m definitely going with the serum.

  6. I want all 3. I love KS but I also love becca, just wondering the shade range.

  7. This is AMAZING!!!! What r y’all gonna pick? It’s a beautiful palette but I have so many, the Kate Somerville is 98$ but I think I’m gonna go with the foundation! I love Becca ☺. Let’s hope premium is even better than this, WOW!!!!

    • I’m selecting the palette. The colors are fabulous.

  8. Hourglass 🙌🙌😍

  9. I just resubscribed for January, do y’all think I will be able to choose for February? Thank y’all 😊.

    • Yes, you will be able to choose for Feb. Boxy has horrible CS but they are very fast at billing and activating account which is great. I cancelled once and reactivated my acc the same day they had choice and I was able to choose right away. This is a + compared to Ipsy.

      • Thanks so much!!!!

  10. I caved and subbed for the basic subscription. I hope I can choose the serum.

  11. Oh no! What to pick? I would like to try the foundation and the serum, but Boxy isn’t Boxy without eyeshadow. Don’t know what to do. I was excited when I found out Boxy was starting foundations and concealer but didn’t realize it would be in place of eyeshadow. At least it’s between three things that I like… Better than being interested in nothing they’re offering.

  12. I know this is a little off topic but I have BC base and BC premium for this first month. Will both boxes ship separately?

    • Yes. Two separate boxes shipped at 2 different times.

      • Thanks!

    • Chances are you will be on wait list for the premium. They usually only open it on the first for one day. So you most likely will not get January’s premium box.

  13. I want to try out an Iconic London palette. I’ve eyed them but never bought because the shades haven’t jumped out at me. I will be choosing this.

  14. Those colors look pretty, but I have so many dupes of pretty much all of those.

    Really excited for that serum!!

  15. Anyone know if that serum is any good in terms of fine lines? I dont need anymore palettes but I also dont need to waste my time applying skincare that has zero results. I’d rather have the palette that another serum that just provides moisture. I have enough of those. I would love to try the foundation but just know the color will not work out so I wont pick that.

    • Jenn, I’ve haven’t tried this serum; but, I just spent time reading reviews of it. A lot of users said the finish is a bit sticky and that it feels as if it sits on the skin instead of being absorbed. I know, of course, that all skin is different; however, if this is a result, it’s definitely not the type of serum I prefer. In contrast, the Kypris that I chose in November Boxy is a winner. It’s super hydrating and absorbs quickly leaving a perfect skin finish for makeup or an additional moisturizer. I’m choosing the palette for this box.

    • Hi Jenn. I’ve tried this before. I’m 51, have oily skin with concerns being fine lines and large pores. This sat on the top of my skin, almost like a face mask. When I put moisturizer over it, it became a gooey mess. It was tacky and I got a few little gummy balls of serum that rolled up. It wasn’t a good moment.

  16. MAY include hourglass blushes. Ok, ok, popular bloggers gonna get them. all the rest – dry brow mascara or tweezers. Keeping cancelled

  17. ugh I wish I know concealer was going to be guaranteed or I wouldn’t have gotten one from ipsy. I also have so many palettes right now it’s not even funny.

    • Oh, it’s foundation. Apparently I’m not awake. I doubt theyre going to give us proper colors anyway though.

      • Maybe you’re thinking of spoilers from elsewhere? People may also receive Pretty Vulgar concealers this month.

  18. Yes, this looks very nice. I just can’t keep giving money to a company with horrible customer service, and mistake after mistake. I love Boxycharm boxes, but there’s more bad than good right now. Therefore, while I’d love to receive this it’s just not going to happen:(

  19. The palette has beautiful colors, but “Merlot Monday’s”? For real? C’mon! I think’s I’s will’s just’s start’s putting’s apostrophes, er, apostrophe’s everywhere’s.

    -_-

    For that reason alone, the palette is off the list.

    • Lol, maybe it’s a misprint, & that’s how Boxy got ahold of so many at a discount.

    • Yes, this drives me crazy too! And it’s everywhere now, so I guess it was just a matter of time before errant apostrophes started invading palettes. Didn’t expect it from a company in England, though!

    • Yes. Also drives me nuts when people say or write ‘these ones’ or ‘should of’.

      • Or alot or irregardless. Thankfully auto correct has fixed these ones since so many people don’t know these ones aren’t words even though they should of.

        • Lol! Indeed. One of the reviewers at MSA wrote ‘these ones’ recently. Argh!

  20. The palette has beautiful colors, but I got the Iconic London Sunset to Sunrise palette for Boxy pop up and I wasn’t completely impressed. 🙄But down to try again… Can’t win ’em all! 😬😳😜

    • Ughhhhhh now I see it and I can’t unsee it. My journalism major past won’t allow me to get it either.

  21. I never received a ‘choice’ email for December and when I logged onto Boxy, there was no ‘choice’ option there either.

    Also just curious. for those of you who signed up for the BoxyPremium that comes every month which is the bigger box with more items, do you have to receive the base Boxycharm in order to get the bigger Premium box? I get Boxyluxe every 3 months but didn’t sign up for the BoxyPremium (can’t recall the exact name) as I didn’t want 2 Boxy boxes per month.

    • Ok I had the same issue. I couldn’t find any option of making my choice selection. I’m just getting the regular box. Any suggestions??

    • For Premium, you have to keep your base box the first month you receive Premium. After that, you can cancel base and just keep Premium. If you want to keep Luxe, you have to keep your base box. If you want Luxe AND Premium, you have to keep your base box. Without base, there is no Luxe option.

      • Having to keep the base box was true the first month of premium, though they have not promoted that it’s no longer true. If you cancel your base box, you are still on the premium waitlist, or still get premium, even in the first month. I cancelled Base on Dec. 29, and was moved off the premium waitlist on Dec. 1. Many others were surprised when they cancelled their base, assuming it would also cancel their waitlist for premium, and then they were charged for premium the next month.

        It is accurate that you have to keep the base box to keep Luxe. Personally I think they should fix it so people who get premium can also get luxe.

        • I agree and I told them as much (not that telling or asking them anything does much.) Especially given that we’re actually paying $10 more per month. I hated to give up Luxe, especially after a great December box, but I don’t need or even want 2-3 boxes a month from them.

          I’m burned out on palettes right now unless they’re super unique in some way and I have enough serums to last me at least five years. I only have one or two full size foundations so I would love to try this one. Unfortunately I have taken both parts of the complexion quiz numerous times but my answers are never saved. I’ve contacted customer service but it’s done no good. I got two auto-generated responses that didn’t even come close to anything helpful and one semi-actual human sounding reply that wasn’t much better. I can’t get them to understand that I don’t need general information or instructions. I just want to know if my answers have been saved on their end and if not how we can resolve this. Otherwise there’s no point choosing concealer or foundation since it’s likely not to be the best shade for me. It’s so hard to get them to really read your message carefully and take a look at your specific account instead of just scanning for key words and phrases and sending you the same general info you can get from the website. I gave up after getting that 3rd useless response from them. I don’t have the patience anymore. This has happened almost every time I’ve ever needed to contact them.

      • Wow, thanks for the great explanation! I feel like I finally “got” it! 😀

        • You’re so very welcome!

    • Just a heads up –
      Monday, January 13
      Early access for the February Base box opens for Luxe and Premium Subscribers and Waitlisters.

      Tuesday, January 14
      All access opens for the February Base box.

      Thursday, January 16
      Choice for the February Premium box opens for active Premium subscribers only (Waitlisters not included).

      So look out for your next choice dates!

    • No one received an email. You should maybe read the FAQ on Boxy’s website regarding Choice so you’re aware for future — they unfortunately put the onus on subscribers to pay attention to when Choice opens and will advertise it on their social media pages.

    • I’ve seen a few people on Reddit say that they were on the wait list for Premium and canceled their base box, but they still got off the wait list to receive Premium.

    • I’ve gotten emails notifying me before of Choice, add-ons, Spoilers ext. But the Same thing happened to me and it looks like the same thing happened this month (since my Jan. Box already shipped). I didn’t get notifications for anything actually, not even a spoiler of what I was getting. I just assumed that sometimes we get to choose but it’s not guaranteed. 🤷🏼‍♀️

    • I never received an email either for choice for January. My boxyluxe was messed up also. I did not receive either of my items for choice in December. I contacted customer service and I was told that they could not verify my choices so basically to bad. I am hoping that thinks will work out this month. 🤷🏻‍♀️

  22. The palette has beautiful colors, but I got the Iconic London palette for Boxy pop up and I wasn’t completely impressed. 🙄But down to try again… Can’t win ’em all! 😬😳😜

    • Will we be able to choose the shade of foundation if we choose that? The color shown is way to dark for me.

      • Same here, I really want foundation but it has to match skin tone!

  23. I got the other iconic London palette from boxy pop up it is freaking horrible there is zero pigmentation at all it has some pretty colors but they just don’t show up I think they gave us a bunch of old ones that was hard pan

    • haha I know exactly which one you’re talking about. I thought the same too. it was definitely the worst eye shadows i’ve ever tried. but the colors were pretty!

  24. When you really wanna try the foundation but know that boxy is notorious for giving you the wrong shade colors…

    • All of them will be at add on so you have all of them if you want to porchese and always like $12 bucks that it’s a great deal.

  25. If I sign up today, will I get the January box or February box? When would be best to make sure I don’t get January?

    • Feb 1st to make sure you won’t get Jan but you won’t get choice just fyi

      • Hmm, so you don’t get to choose for your first month? And thank you!

        • Choice is next week on Monday so I don’t think you’d be able to choose for feb without signing up for Jan.

        • Correct. You don’t get to choose your first month.

  26. I’d actually choose the palette this time, which is a first for me. Lots of wearable colors for old ladies like me 🙂

    • I also think the palette has beautiful colors!

    • Same. I actually would wear most of those colors. And as for pigmentation, I wear my colors lightly anyway, so no biggie.

      • Agree. Finally, a palette with lovely colors. I’m not concerned with lighter pigmentation. Lighter is better for me.

  27. I wonder if we’ll be able to pick the foundation shade as well? If not, I’ll probably go with the serum.
