  1. Okay, shocker the items I wanted as add ons are sold out today but I did get the QMS eye cream and the Laura Geller peach glow.
    It let me purchase add ons but there is no where I can find to choose my item for the box.
    Last month it took me there after add ons were done.
    Do we have to wait on an email?

    • Type in your browser.

      • That didn’t work for me either 😞

      • Yay! That worked. I chose the palette. Of course, when I went back the Becca foundation is now available in add ons. I should have bought it at that price but I’m just not spending another dime on beauty products this week. So tempting!

      • Glad it worked! I picked the palette too. Then when I looked at add-ons, I became a sucker for that jar of eye cream and picked it up. I have no self-control. 🤷‍♀️😂

      • Well, talk about no self control. They added the Cover FX primer I’ve been wanting to try and I bought it! That is QMS cream, Laura Geller glow AND a primer after I said I was done but I’m happy and I’ll survive not getting the KS as an add on. I have to stay away from their website now.

  2. Just opened. Got the palette for selection and the butter London and our palettes. Think I have enough now 😹

  3. Would have been nice if they opened the choice BEFORE the add-ons. I bought the eye cream and Becca, because I want the Kate serum. Gonna be super pissed if it’s no longer a choice option because they managed this poorly.

  4. Anyone get options yet today? First time doing it go figure.

  5. And of course they are late

    • Has anybody been able to select choice for the base box today?

      • Haven’t seen the option to choose anywhere, I’ve been refreshing like a madwoman..

      • Nope. Frustrating.

      • I can buy add-ins, but still no choice 🙁

      • My first month to be able to choose and I can’t. Is this normal for Boxy?

      • No still waiting, it’s 11:13am PST here

      • No, but they seem to be slowly adding the add-on items so hopefully they will get to choice soon

      • It just openned as of 225pm

    • It’s open!

  6. Just saw on FB that all access add-ons and choice will begin today @ 2:00 pm EST.

    • Thank you Shelia!

    • I don’t know how to choose!

  7. i just rejoined BC, after months of not getting what I want…then they started the choice and add ons…if I just joined last night will I get to choose my one for January or not..and will I get to choose February..and will the add-ons come in my box or separate do I have to pay shipping?…thanks for answers…

    • You won’t be able to choose for January but you should be able to choose for February. I *think* it’s a separate box. Shipping for add-ons is free for the contiguous US.

  8. So it’s the 14th……. Where the @#%# is the choice option for regular box subcribers???? I’m at work and dont have time to constantly check the internet. BOXYCHARM needs to notify us, not the other way around. This is an insane way to do business.

    • It didn’t open up for Luxe and Premium subscribers until after 1pm yesterday, so they’ll probably make you wait until atleast 1pm today. Sorry girl. I was at work yesterday too trying to check as often as possible before I finally saw a post/reply on IG from Boxy around 11:30am that they would be open at 1pm EST. Good luck! There were still some good add-ons left last time I checked this morning!! 😉

    • Use I never get emails or a notice on my account page. I have to ferret it out on my own. That address does the trick to get there.

  9. I took the palette and bought the foundation as an add-on. I actually went over to Ulta’s website to see how they described the shades so I could try to find one that would work best for me. Hopefully Olive is it.

  10. A few questions I hope people can help with (I have been looking at BCs website along with this one and haven’t figured it out: Is the option for choice and add-ons only available to the premium and luxe boxes? If you are a base box member, are you able to choose a product and do any add-ons?

    I’ve been an IPSY subscriber for years and currently have IPSY Glam Bag plus, and am not impressed with the boxes I’ve been receiving lately. But I love the option to select a product and I enjoy their add-ons. Been thinking about switching to BC for a while!

    • Luxe, Premium and waitlisters (for those 2 boxes) have 1 day early access. If you only have the base box and are not waitlisted for the other boxes, you still have choice for your base box and add ons the day after, which is today for current choice.
      Your choice items don’t sell out, but the good add ons are long gone, they sold out within an hour or two on the first day. Like yesterday, I took too long to decide and the 2 palettes sold out, which was fine by me, save me some $.

  11. It’s the 14th, yet choice and add-ons are still not open for us lowly base-only subscribers. That does not please me.

    • Same here I didn’t have the chance to choose last month and now this month and I’m a regular boxy charm. It’s very frustrating when that’s suppose to be a reason for them upping the price on it.

    • I don’t know if BC is working on a 24-hour clock, but add-ons and choice didn’t open for premium and luxe until 1 pm EST yesterday. Maybe the same time for today??

  12. I was torn between the serum and eye palette. I have the Iconic sunset to sunrise palette and let me tell you, it may be the best one I own BUT it isn’t like I need another one. I went ahead and chose the palette thinking I would get the serum as a $12 add on only to find it and the palette sold out. Oh well. Guess I’m getting another eye shadow palette though, lol!

  13. It would have been nice if they had the cool toned foundations for fair and light complexions…I choose a neutral toned one instead. Hopefully it will work

  14. Does anyone remember what 4 shades were in the Becca foundation sample blister pack? I meant to keep the card for future purchase, but I can’t find it. If anyone can help, I would be so grateful! I know it was the 3rd one. Lol 😂

    • There were 3 different blister packs depending on your skin tone

      Light- Linen, Shell, Cashmere
      Medium-Driftwood, Olive, Bamboo
      Dark- Maple, Sienna, Cacao

      • Thank you sooo much! I was thinking Cashmere is what I needed, so thanks for confirming 😀

  15. Can anyone tell me if the Too Faced highlighter from the January box is an add on and if so how much? I really wanted it but didn’t get it. Is there anywhere to see the add ons from today? I’m new to Boxy and don’t get to choose until tomorrow. Thanks so much!

    • No, it’s not in the add-ons.

      • Thank you! 😭

  16. Does anyone know how much the foundation is as an add on?

    • $12

  17. Chose the Kate Somerville. No add-ons.

    (Though I was surprised to see the Little Red Riding Hood Storybook palette in add-ons, when a lot of people got the FOMO December box with the Sleeping Beauty Storybook palette in it.)

  18. I have premium & luxe – where is the option to choose? I don’t see it

    • Click on the 3 lines in the upper left corner of your Boxycharm home page->then click in SHOP->then click on Add-Ons

  19. I’m like light-fair cool toned…and all I see is warm toned or neutral toned Becca foundation choices. Kinda disappointing bcuz I even did the shade match over the weekend so I would know which shade would be best. Dang it!

  20. I chose the foundation, hope the color I picked worked as they didn’t have my actual shade as a choice . I got the eyeshadow palette and serum as add ons

  21. Our power was out this morning (snowstorm) and our cell reception is intermittent at best. I was lucky enough to be able to access my choice just after Boxy sent the email. I primarily want the palette, but I followed the advice that said go for the skin care figuring I would purchase the palette as an add-on. Well, I chose the eye cream and then went to the add-ons page and the palette was sold out! I immediately tried to change my choice to the palette, but my internet went out again. It took a while, but I was finally able to choose the palette. Hopefully BC will send me the last choice I made and not the first.

    • I changed mine last month and I got the one I chose last. You have the capability to change it long as the window is open. Good luck!

      • Curious to know the reasoning behind choosing the skincare over the makeup option?

      • In a previous BC spoiler post, a comment said that if you miss out on makeup from a sub box, you should be able to acquire it cheap from ebay or the like, and that high-end skincare from sub boxes sells closer to retail value. Makeup is supposedly in less demand than high-end skincare. That made sense before I knew about how heavily discounted add-ons would be and that the palette as an add-on would be listed as sold out. And all this while trying to make my choice using terrible cell reception during a power outage LOL.

      • Don’t forget about Boxy swap/sell Facebook group pages. They have bargain prices on both makeup and skincare from Boxy. I get what I want there for a song and a dance. Price is competitive because SO many people sell their Boxy products (you wouldn’t believe how many). I think many purchase multiple subscriptions as a side hustle business for resale. Some have rows of same-type product in photos.

      • I don’t even look at the swap site here at MSA because it’s much easier to purchase what I want through these groups/Paypal, and I don’t have to bother negotiating swaps.

    • Choice is open for 24-48 hrs. Once it closes, you will get an email confirming your most recent choice. So you can expect the palette, unless you change it again lol

  22. I chose the palette and added on the Becca foundation in linen. It might be a bit light for me but I think I can make it work with contour and blush.

  23. Bummer, I missed out on the Elemis rose oil. I love that stuff. But it was all gone when I checked out a few minutes ago 😭

  24. I picked the serum and no addons. I wanted the waterfall cream but it sold out while I was checking out so I dumped the other items I was going to met as well.

    • You can get the waterfall moisturizer from Facebook Boxy sale groups. I just bought one there for $12 including shipping. They have everything you could possibly want on those group sale pages.

  25. I chose the serum. I tried to order the foundation as an add-on but many of the light – medium shades were unavailable.

    • How can they run out? They havent had the window for choice to close? So they are allowing people to add on before knowing what quantity they have to sell as add ons?

  26. Am I insane or is the QMS eye cream a repeat product from a few months ago?

    • It was….because I am still using the one received in the box 😊

    • It was in the first boxy premium.

      • Just a FYI….They keep adding new products as soon as other products sell out.

    • I tried getting the foundation yesterday as an add on and most of the shades were sold out. I tried again just now and all the shades are available again and was able to purchase the shade i wanted. You should check again if you really want it.

  27. If anyone wants to swap for an item from the premium box (not the hourglass) id love the iconic palette from boxy regular!

  28. I don’t have choice. I have a choice now so I choice cancel. I don’t want to contact customer service. I like things simply. It’s not fun when you have to jump through hoops to get what you pay for.

    • Choice is today if you have Luxe or Premium as well as the base box, otherwise it is tomorrow. If you do have one of those and are still not getting a choice, you might want to try changing browsers.

  29. Has anyone used the eyecream? Thoughts?

    • No but I used the whole bottle of QMS lip line serum and I didn’t see any difference in my lips! Another brand that is all hype. I

    • It’s ultra hydrating for sure, but other than that, I didn’t notice any other difference. I’ve been using it since it came out however long ago in one of my boxes 🙂

      • Thank you! Thinking I’ll give it a shot 😉

      • You’re welcome! 👍

    • I used the whole bottle of QMS lip serum with no difference. I would pick something else

  30. If it is sold out in add-ons, does that mean it won’t be an option for choice tomorrow for only base subscribers? Thanks!

    • I doubt it, but it might not be available as an add on tomorrow.

    • Not sure for certain. All of the choice items are available for me to choose even though some or sold out as add ons.

  31. Are any of the mystery boxes worth it? Anyone ever buy ‘em and get great stuff? The premium boxes are sold out.

    • They are probably left over regular boxes.

    • I actually got a unicorn box awhile ago through the last mystery box pop up! I was shocked. I highly recommend giving it a shot.

  32. I added on the Becca foundation. I was happy to see all the shade options. The eye palette was sold out so I couldn’t be tempted. But I don’t get why the Premium choice is not available until Thursday

  33. Thank you for your updates!
    I picked Elemis Rose Oil and Kate Somerville Peptides Serum for my Add-Ons! My choice for the Feb Premium will be open on Thursday (Jan.16) can’t wait!

  34. SO disappointed in the shades available for the Becca foundation! That’s what I really wanted…

  35. I was also charged shipping and didn’t even realize it. ANGRY

    • Aren’t we supposed to receive free shipping if we spend $25??

  36. No cool tone shades available for the Becca.

    • There is a medium cool toned. That will work for me in the summer. I chose to add-on so I would get a match… I’ve got a pile of foundation that are too yellow for me. Boxy does lean heavily towards warm skin tone 😞

      • Even for choice – you got to pick your shade. 🙂

      • That’s good to know. I’m glad they are giving everyone the opportunity to select a color or something else altogether

    • I know😔 Boxy loves their warm tones…for Everything lol! Fortunately I can use Noisette too, which is a neutral but definitely leans cool, so I added that one!

  37. The iconic London palette is sold out as an add-on

    • It might pop back up tomorrow.

  38. Shipping is Free, CS said they will be refunding anyone who got charged (ME). I chose Becca foundation in Shell and bought Linen..I’m so fair..I don’t know..maybe mix these too and get the perfect shade..I also got the Kate Serum. I have heard good things about Iconic..but I walked away fast..speed walk..haha..I’m trying to cut some $$ in the new year..and my Habits are bad..I need an intervention..hahaha.

    • Oh good, because I was charged shipping

  39. I chose the foundation and added on the kate Somerville serum!!

  40. Irritated! I added the palette and the dose of colors to my cart but was waiting for it to say free shipping. Now the palette is sold out! But I got my dose of colors, whatever.

  41. Just saw that. I was charged $5 for shipping. 😡

  42. I chose the foundation because I have so much skincare to use right now! I also added on another foundation and the eyeshadow palette! I don’t need another palette, but it’s so wearable for me!

    • I chose the foundation as well! The eyeshadow colors look beautiful.

  43. Is there a code or something we need to use to get the free shipping on add ons? It’s giving me a $5 shipping charge but says free at the top.

    • That’s what i’m trying to figure out right now as well. Getting frustrated because I wanna check out already!

    • I kept going back and forth and finally it worked without the $5 charge

      • Both iconic and little red ridinghood storybook pallets sold out along with only a few Boxy Lux $49. boxes left.

  44. I chose the serum and added on the eyeshadow palette and the eye cream. Can’t beat the price!

  45. I chose the palette. 😊😍 I am on skincare overload!!

    • I chose the skincare because I’m on palette overload!

  46. I chose the eyeshadow palette since I’m overloaded with skincare. I may cancel, though.

    • I chose the foundation, then purchased elemis and kate. I could open a store with all the palettes I have lol really wearable colors though, but I literally have every one of them!

  47. I chose the serum, and added on the QMS eye cream, Elemis rose oil, and Saturday Skin product… I think it was a moisturizer, but can’t recall… I just saw it, knew I didn’t have it, wanted it, so I chose it. lol

    • Great choice!!

  48. What are the add ons?

  49. On top of Add-on page it says…shipping free for all orders…but I see a charge of $5 for shipping….

    • I seen that as well. 😥

      • Mine is doing that also! So frustrated cause I want to check out. I just sent them a message.

    • Contacted customer service about shipping fee since they are promoting free shipping. Hopefully they will respond in a timely manner.

    • When i checked out they honored the free shipping. Subtotal listed $5 shipping but on final receipt shipping is $0

    • I checked out with one $12 item and no charge for shipping.

    • They will be refunding anyone who paid the 5$ fee, just an FYI!

      • Do we have to e-mail them or will they do it automatically?

      • I choose the Iconic palette 😀

      • Great! I’ve already contacted CS – this is ridiculous – I do enjoy Boxycharm but it always seems to be some sort of problem – you’d think they would get their CS together before a sale – thanks for letting us know!

      • Same here I’ve emailed them all morning about no choice I’m about to cancel it

  50. I don’t have the Choice option yet…

    • You might want to try another browser, it’s given me (and others) issues with choice in the past.

    • Or if you don’t have premium or luxe, then your choice isn’t available until tomorrow.

    • Me either
