  1. With everything going on…are we still going to be getting our boxycharm boxes for april?!?!

  2. I was really surprised that none of the spoilers were a part of choice. I really hope they don’t only give those in PR boxes to influencers 🙁

    • Exactly my thoughts!! Let’s hope not. 🤞I was so hoping they would let us choose between those and throw the others into the addons. They probably only had a limited amount 😞

  3. Disappointed we didn’t get to choose a palette. I went with the Peach Lily Pore toner because I’d never buy a $39 toner (hoping it’s full size.) the Becca blush looked tempting but I’d likely get an unwearable shade.

  4. I thought these were choice items? I guess not I was really shocked at items when did my choice just now

  5. Noooooooooo, I wanted to choose the mask out of the palettes for premium choice. I am sad that those weren’t the things we ended up getting to choose between… and I know I won’t be getting that mask now ;_; prob end up with one of the palettes no one wants, ugh. I am glad I got the farmacy item in base box, but I am starting to think everyone did xD so back to bad luck for me.

    • How did you get the Farmacy mask in the base box? Was there an option to choose it for April’s box and I missed it? 😣

      • Not the mask, I meant I got the cleansing balm for march base box.

    • Still over here waiting on my basebox. Last month and this month I didn’t receive my basebox until the end of the month. I always track my fed ex deliveries because it’ll show me even when a label is created. Everyone around me already received theirs and my label was just created. I never complain but I been with boxycharm a long time and get both base and premium so please help me to understand why the past 2 months I have been one of the last people to receive my box..

      • I was really depressed when this happened to me last month in February. I didn’t get it until like the 23rd of the month. Usually I would get base box in hand by the 12th at the latest. Really sad that it was so late on my birthday month xD It started getting to me a little later in the month when I got off the premium waitlist. The end of the month time happened when I got my first premium box actually. Wonder if that has anything to do with it…

  6. Choice is up for premium. So many options this time, and with the already spoiled possibilities, I am getting a real hodge podge vibe. Hopefully more spoilers soonish

    • I can not make a choice. I did not even see where to choose from on my page.

      • You may need to log out and log back in. I have two do that every time to choose.

  7. I want that PUR pallet so much! So that means I won’t get it. Hopefully I can swap for it if I don’t. Seems I’m the only one who wants it though 😂

    • It’s pretty and I love glitter! Definitely my choice of palette from the options above.

    • I bought the pur palette off of mercari last month brand new and I love it. Before I even got to use it all the ladies in my family were swatching it 😳 Anyway the pigment is nice and the color sticks. The presentation is absolutely beautiful. I love the whole pur barbie collection. If I happen to get that in my box and you get the Lifes a Drag palette or Honey mask I will be more than happy to trade since I already have one 🙂

  8. I have tried several times to NOT use my email address but it keeps saying I have to use it or I can’t post. How can we fix this without putting my email address??

    • Ummm dear your email address is not published. Your email has always been required to post comments.

  9. No MORE PUR PALLETS! UGH. Give me the smashbox or Farmacy 100%

    • Right there with you! Though I don’t own a pur palette, the Farmacy and the Smashbox is the ones I would choose to see in my box first if I could. Mostly the farmacy though…. my drawer is getting a little too palette heavy atm and I don’t wear make-up everyday. I have lazy days lol.

  10. I agree! I think the Manny palette looks pretty good actually! I’d love to end up with that one but I’ll probably get the honey mask! I guess that’s why there’s a variety of options- a variety of tastes!

  11. I really wanted the Farmacy mask until I saw it contains royal jelly. I’m not sure how that can be considered cruelty-free, since queen bees are killed for it. It is definitely not vegetarian. So I am hoping this will be a choice item tomorrow so I can choose a palette instead.

    I’m trying to decide between the Lunar Beauty or the Pur—the Life’s a Drag palette said “these shades may not be available for direct eye use. Does anyone know what that means? I don’t plan on putting shadow directly on my eyes, but eyelids are very close, and powder can drift down. Thanks in advance to anyone who knows the answer to this!

    • Oh no! I did not realize that. How terribly disappointing. This is something I struggle with as far as my Boxy and Ipsy subs. I feel terrible knowing I am paying for some products that are not cruelty free. Unfortunately my addiction is currently still more powerful than my guilt.

      I’ve loved every Farmacy product I’ve tried so I was super excited about this. But I do appreciate the information so I can make the more ethical choice. Thanks!

    • Hello, I just read how royal jelly is obtained and it’s actually just extracted from the cells . The larvae is removed from the cell and then when its extracted the larvae is placed back in. If you a professional beekeeper you can easily do it without harming them.

  12. At the end of the day you’re still getting a great deal for $35… I have had a couple of pur paette’s that work great – they sent one out last year called the festival palette and it was fantastic. I wouldn’t necessarily knock pur. But again all in all I think you’re getting a great deal for $35 even if it’s not exactly what you want

    • With all due respect that’s in the eye of the beholder if they think it’s worth it or not and depends on how many of those items they like and will wear. It’s not only about money, people want to get things they like and can wear for their skin type/color etc. $35 isn’t worth it if you only like one item or so. It’s all different for different tastes and opinions but that doesn’t mean other’s are wrong for not liking it or being happy with it.

      • Totally agree. One month I got only one item I liked and it was definitely not something I would have paid $35 for. Of course I gift or donate all my items but that’s not the point.
        It’s especially difficult for those of us that have been doing this for years. I do realize I am harder to please after 5+ years of Boxy versus a more recent subscriber. It’s such a shame they don’t allow for more flexibility like Ipsy. They get PLENTY of money from me. Years of multiple subscriptions, add-ons, and my biggest weakness—pop up sales, they are definitely making a profit which should encourage them to allow people to skip a month without having to be put back on a waitlist. I’m getting close to giving up on Premium because I had one great box, one halfway decent one, one horrible one and my Fenty one….let’s just say I wasn’t dazzled. Of course I got the dark purple lipstick that just looks crazy on a pale 45 year old. It’s a gorgeous color just not on me. This could’ve been easily avoided if only our profiles were considered. The palette was decent but Sephora had it for $26 for ages. I don’t use highlighters, I have plenty of clear/sparkly lipglosses, and while I use blotting papers religiously I don’t find it beneficial to use a dispenser vs just tearing a sheet off. Is it more attractive? I suppose. Of course it’s also more unnecessary plastic for the landfills. Basically this box was the perfect example of why $35 is not “always” a great deal for everyone. I came so close to canceling but I was afraid of being waitlisted again and something awesome showing up in April. FOMO is the worst and I really need to get a grip on mine!

  13. Drag is in the name of the pallette…… People are allowed to dislike a product. You need to lighten up.

  14. OOOOOO SOOO EXCITED!!!! I HOPE HOPE HOPE to get the life is a drag pallette!!! Love all the eye pallettes we get from Boxy, and it gives me something to be so excited about and look forward too every month!!!!

  15. Saw this yesterday on FB. They should release base box && premium spoilers at the same time. He said they would release base spoilers on FB today or Monday. Looks like on Monday!

  16. The absolute hardest choice for me is having to choose between a palette and a skincare item, because I love both! That Farmacy is looking really tempting, but so is the Lunar palette. Hopefully I can chose one as an add on.

  17. The pur x Barbie palette is really good, especially that pressed glitter. I have it. I hope I get Manny’s Life’s a Drag palette. He’s so sweet and come along way, all these nobodies need to bud out his business. Sound like a bunch of stalkers obsessed with his past if you ask me!! Freaks.

  18. I think I am an eye shadow palette junkie. I bought three in the recent pop up sale and I want all of these. They all look fun! I would be very happy with the Farmacy mask, as well.

    • You’re not the only one! I will always choose an eye palette if I have a choice. No matter if I have a drawerful already and sometimes only use one to try once; having them makes me happy.

  19. I am excited for the farmacy but not sure about the palettes. I don’t know who manny mua is and honestly don’t care. I would like to try the Pur palette and smashbox. I may sound like I live under a rock for not knowing someone but I just don’t care … I just want a good box.

    • And…there’s nothing wrong with ‘living under a rock’. I believe there is too much false importance placed on pop culture and social media nonsense, I do my own thing, have my own passions, and I don’t care about any of that ridiculousness.. Sounds as if you have a great life as well. That’s a good thing.

    • Honey you do you. Living under the rocks these day’s YES PLEASE! Live like you want and live however makes YOU happy hun. Hope you get what you want in your box. 🤞💞

  20. I have both the Barbie and the Life’s A Drag palette, so I hope I get the Smashbox one. I’d even be okay with the honey mask, but I do love a new palette.

    If I get one I already have, though, I have three coworkers who I give my dupes to.

  21. I’m really hoping I don’t get the Pur palette. I am never happy with their shadows. Every palette I get from them is really powdery.

  22. I just signed up for premium and of course now mediocre brands instead of Natasha Denona and Too Faced.

    • I wouldn’t call Smashbox or PUR mediocre, although I def wouldn’t want that Barbie palette!

  23. So glad I cancelled after the Faccia scam.

    And why no review of the February Premium box yet? Is MSA avoiding offending Boxy because it doesn’t want to comment on Faccia?

    I look to MSA as a source of unbiased information and reviews.

    • They may not have received the boxy premium yet to review. My boxy premium is coming today. I’m sure the review will be here by early next week.

      • Oh sorry, that is the March box.

    • Yikes, please relax LOL! There are plenty of reviews over the “Boxycharm Faccia scandal,” simply Google it. Just because MSA hasn’t addressed it directly doesn’t mean they have gone to the dark side! However, you were probably smart to cancel your subscription.

    • They shouldn’t have to comment on the controversy, but just try the moisturizer and give their thoughts on it. I tried it. It’s kind of sticky and runny but it’s overall okay.

    • What was the Faccia scam? I got it in my Feb premium but haven’t even opened it yet.

      • It was essentially a cheap filler product Boxy claimed was worth a lot of money, which is to be fair, how any of these boxes make money. , but it was alarming to many in this case because it was so new that there wasn’t any information on the product or brand available other than that it cost a dollar on alibaba so there were concerns about the actual ingredients.

  24. No! No! No! I have the Smashbox palette and returned the PUR x Barbie palette because the shadow was not quality at all. If anything, the Barbie palette is for packaging only…nothing more.🙄 Praying I get the hydration mask or Manny MUA palette 🙏🤞

  25. I don’t want any of this except the mask.

  26. Funny.. I went to see what the hubbub was on this Manny person and it took me to his site and that palette is sold out. So, how is Boxycharm getting ahold of it? Old stock he can’t sell?

    • Well if it is sold out it probably isn’t old stock they couldn’ t sell.

    • It’s probably “sold out” because they sold the remaining stock to Boxycharm

      • Ding, ding, ding! That’s how people figure out what product we are going to be getting when only a brand spoiler has been released. Boxy spoils that Manny will be in next month’s box, people go to the Manny’s site and see what product is sold out. There is a very large chance that is the product we will be getting.

  27. I wonder if that Farmacy mask is going to be “made for Boxycharm”. I hope not, hope it comes directly from their manufacture that sends out to Sephora and the like.. but I won’t hold my breath!

    • So we get to pick a product but they choose what we can pick from? I would sub but only if I can get that Smashbox palette. 😍😍

      • This comment totally went to the wrong place!

  28. BC, you’re not wooing me back. Your silence on the DLS debacle is deafening.

  29. The Farmacy mask is fantastic and I’ve started to purchase the Smashbox palette before, it’s really nice and reminds me of one of Too Faced old school palettes that I adored, The Return of Sexy. I’d be pleased to get either one of the two.

  30. I really to try the Manny palette, the farmacy forsure and the smashbox. Hopefully we get the farmacy as a guarantee and choose between the palettes.

  31. Not sad at all I canceled Premium. I don’t care for Manny nor Pur, I like Smashbox ok; but not their eye shadows.

  32. I literally have the HoneyPotion mask sitting in my cart on the Farmacy website right now. THE best hydration mask I’ve ever used.

  33. I dont like Pur AT ALL and I already have Manny’s palette. I hope we can choose the palettes, I would go with smashbox.

    • Me too! I love that mask!

  34. I know this is going to be choice! Right??
    Don’t tease me with a honey pot Boxy.
    Not funny

  35. I wouldn’t mind the Life’s a Drag Palette or the Farmacy but a Pur Palette was what made me cancel boxy last time and might be what does it again. SO So bad.

  36. Hope this is the choice option – big variance in quality here

  37. I’d love the Manny or smashbox palette…so I’ll probably get the Farmacy lol. Unless we get to choose which would be awesome.

  38. Love that mask but hopefully everyone gets a mask and then one of the palettes, although I wouldnt consider the PUR a premium product.

    • The truth is we never really get what we want unless by chance we get to pick that item ourselves.

  39. I have the Barbie palette and I love the packaging. It’s very wearable colors. I hope I get the farmacy facemask but these are all great options.

  40. Omg what a coincidence. I was just about to buy this mask from farmacy last week and the girl wouldn’t negotiate so I said Nevermind but I think it’s funny bc now imma get it in the box! I’m so excited and happy imma get it either way 😍

    • have you ever successfully negotiated the cost of a product from a retail store???

      • The sales clerk at the Lancome counter couldn’t swap out one product for another, ( a couple things packaged as a deal), so she gave me a discount and two of all the gift with purchase items. I have no complaints!

      • Wow that’s great! That lady was so nice for doing that especially when she didn’t have too. I’m glad she made everything right for you hun. Those ladies are few and far between these day’s. Alot have bad attitude, roll their eyes and are very snotty. Your’s was awesome!! 👍🥰👏🙋

      • lmao I was wondering the same thing! I think it’s more likely she was trying to negotiate on bbexchange or poshmark or something similar

      • When she says girl and negotiate, I Automatically think of ebay and others where you submit your offer and negotiate a price with the seller.

    • I wouldn’t count your chickens just yet. Boxy has yet to send a Farmacy product to ALL subscribers. They usually get sent to Influencers and a small percentage of regular folks. The only way I would feel certain would be if it’s officially announced as a choice item.

      • Premium has rarely had tons of variations like base box.

      • I don’t know…I’ve been subscribed since the 2nd box and each month the number of variants seems to be increasing. Enough that I ended up with an absolutely dreadful box with almost nothing but appropriate or in some cases even usable products. Like several skincare variants made for oil and acne prone skin when I have super sensitive dry and aging skin. I believe I got a cleanser, mask and treatment all in that one box that were useless and if I recall correctly, makeup shades far too dark for my skin. I almost cancelled because it wasn’t even worth $35 for me personally and I feared it was an example of what to expect in the future as far as variants. Then they announced the Fenty box so I naively felt a little safer. Unfortunately my variants were a total unwearable bust with that one as well and it only had shade variants versus products and shades. I admit that I am quite picky after being subscribed to Boxy, Ipsy and many others off and on for going on six years. Plus I’m nearing my late forties and beginning to look it so I have less flexibility than I did when I was younger and far more adventurous with makeup. It’s possible I am just paranoid but it really has felt like although it’s been a slow process and there are still way less than the base box, the variations are increasing. I certainly hope I am proven wrong though!

      • Change to skincare mostly for your box that’s what I did I am 58 so I understand what your saying generally over all I get the better skin care products each month for dry old skin and those type of products the farmacy ect I can’t complain

  41. I already have pur so I’m sure that is what I will receive, lol. I have almost purchased that smash box palette several times. I won’t be mad at either one I get.

    • More PALETTES!!??? JESUS WHY, I only have two eyes…I don’t need anymore!!!! OMG ..can you skip a month??!!

      • 🤣🤣🤣🤣😂😂😂😂 my exact thought 👍

      • I hope it’s a choice item. If so, I will pick the Farmacy Hydration Mask.

      • Exactly!!! I have over 50 palettes some I bought myself but mostly through sub boxes . Technically they’re only good for what,2 years ?? That’s a lot of wasted product

      • I have more palettes than I can reasonably use in a lifetime but eyeshadow powders seem to last forever. I literally had ones that were 15 years old and still fine. I am not particularly worried about bacteria since they are not a good breeding ground and any bacteria would be just as likely to occur after a year or so of exposure.

        I toss mascaras after 6 months so it is nit as though I am cavalier about safety.

      • 🤣🤣🤣

    • i was really hoping the lunar beauty product would be the moon prism highlighter. hopefully it comes in a future box…

  42. I’ll be the unlucky one that gets that drag crap by Manny ..🙄

    • I imagine I’ll get it too…I’d hate to get something I’d just have to throw in the garbage (I wouldn’t actually, too many shelters would be happy to take it but I’d never keep or use it).

      I’m disappointed that Boxycharm would work with such a deplorable person but I accept I’m not going to like every product I receive.

      • Oh I don’t know this T about Manny.

        I do know that the Pur Barbie palettes sat for months in Ulta and never. Sold. One.

      • Why is he deplorable?

      • He waas friends and associated with J Starr and other problematic people.

      • what is the absolute worst thing manny has ever done??? no one can ever answer that with anything remotely legitimate.

    • That’s funny , I feel the same way about the PUR palette

    • Manny MUA’s palettes are actually very nice quality.
