  1. Anyone else not get there May box yet? (Who has been a monthly subscriber for some time now)

    • Just got my May box. I am horrified, and this is my first ever box from them.

      I received two items that weren’t even on the list of possibilities for the May base box. One is a beauty oil from Wander Beauty and the other was a PÜR Cosmetics contour palette with two dark chocolate brown contour shades and two chalky highlights. I’ll never be able to use that! And I received the two pack of Deborah Lippmann nail polishes that are in colors meant for a 4 year old girl, pink and juvenile looking. I received the English Laundry perfume which smells like a nursing home, and it was partially exploded so the cap was full of perfume. The only redeeming product is the Murad eye cream. The items were clearly thrown in the box because some were in the protective foam and the rest was freely bouncing around in the box. So unbelievably disappointed.

      • Yep, I received an email telling me if I resubscribed I could choose an item in my June box so I resubscribed and when I got no choice they said the word “June” in the email was a typo (lie /typo, potato/ po-tat-o). This was about the 27th of May so I wasn’t even wanting the May box, I can see the online insert is showing the exact awful items listed in the comment above with the nail polish, perfume, face oil, pur contour etc. Brutal. I want to love boxy but some stuff is so shady and that box is bad. Everyone ranting about a bad May box has got nothing on this variation, it doesn’t even contain any of the may box sneak peek items. 🤷🏻‍♀️

  2. I finally received my box. It was listed as being 1.6 lbs. and I received variation 4♡. I’m happy about the items I received this month. Every product will be used.

    Glamglow Berryglow Probiotic Recovery Face Mask – My choice.

    Studio Makeup Eyeshadow Palette – Haven’t tried it out yet but I do like that it’s a nice neutral palette for casual days.

    Trestique Cover + Concealer Crayon in Porcelain – Seems to be the perfect shade for me.

    Appeal Cosmetics Liquid Lipstick in Chic – This is the first lipstick I have received from Boxycharm that is actually wearable for me! I love it. It’ll definitely be used.

    Tarte Micellar Magic – I wanted to try this. So far it hasn’t burned my sensitive eyes like most do.

  3. I received my May base box today and I totally love it! I chose the glamglow mask and my box weighed 1.60 lbs. I received variation #9:

    Glamglow Berryglow Probiotic Recovery Face Mask – this looked so much bigger in the pictures but it’s fine, masks always seem to last me forever.

    Violet Voss Essentials Palette – Yes! I saw some people got this and it was my top, secret box wish.

    Trestique Cover + Concealer Crayon – Another yes. I really wanted to try this but wouldn’t have bought it because I already own a bunch of concealers and they work all about the same over my fine lines/eye area. I received it in ‘light’ which is the right color, yay, Boxy!

    Seraphine Botanicals Whimsical Wisteria Conditioning Lip Polish – I had no idea this was an option. I would have loved a lip gloss but since getting a good lip shade from Boxy is like winning the lottery, this is better and will definitely get used plus, SB’s stuff is always cute looking.

    Tarte Micellar Magic Makeup Remover & Cleanser – Another big yay! I wanted to try this but it is another item I wouldn’t have bought myself since I already have multiple micellar waters and infinite cleansers in my stash to work through. But am I happy to get it in a sub box? Heck ya!

    I wanted share because I’m super happy and I don’t only want to come to MSA threads to complain. And just fyi, I am not an influencer. Huggs all. And, may the sub box odds be ever in your favor. <3

    • Box Twins and I loved the box variation also 🙂

      I just got my box today! I usually would get my Boxy boxes within the first two weeks of the month, but the current situation has put a delay until the last bit of the month. I don’t mind as long as everyone is staying safe 🙂

      • Yes, a lot of slow-ups it seems, understandably. Definitely want everyone to stay safe too but also anxious for things to get back to normal-ish. I wonder how long the economy can sustain in this unprecedented limbo. Hoping for the best..

  4. I’ve been a subscriber for 3 years and this was the worst box so far. I got:

    – elemis pads (my choice and the only decent item)
    – some ridiculously priced wipes (could buy similar pack for like 3 bucks in tjmaxx; also I use wipes for hand swatches only)
    – bar soap (really?)
    – extremely cheapo looking eyeshadow palette with the most boring shades selection from the brand I’ve never heard of (and it also has smears on the couple of shadows)
    – trestique concealer that is too dark for my complexion

    I never trash boxy, even during their darkest times of lies and poor business managing choices, but this was a huge disappointment. And even though elemis kinda made it up for the rest of this ridiculous selection, this was a really, really sad box.

  5. I was pleasantly surprised with my box today. I got 2 of the lip products, but both shades are very wearable for me:
    Elemis pads
    Tarte Micellar Magic
    Trestique Concealer in Porcelain
    Appeal Liquid Lip in Sugar n Spice
    Jouer High Pigment gloss in Broadway

    Sounds like some people were getting dusty old stock so I can’t complain at all!

    • This was my exact variation, I was actually pretty happy

  6. My box was 1.1 lbs and 9x7x4

    Elemis pads
    Studio makeup palette
    Pretty Vulgar eyeshadow primer
    Seraphine lip polish
    Gerard lip pencil

  7. They are playin games! Dude I always end up with the lame variations and its so annoying. Like today, I got a bar of soap! Wtf!😂😂 I mean is it to do that soap thing with your eyebrows or to wash your body/ long ass hair I got?? I signed up to receive makeup and I’m lucky to get one piece of makeup. I don’t know I’m just getting real annoyed with the whole boxy charm thing, came here to vent😾

    • I absolutely agree with you. I receive my base box today and WTF I thought I was going to get that tarte Micellar cleansing water and was hoping for the pretty vulgar eyeshadow primer But a BIG NOPE instead I received a freaking soap on a rope that you use for shampoo and I got another bag of make up wipe remover. In March they gave me two bags of make up remover‘s in the same box. I subscribe to all three boxes and the best thing for me would be to walk away. Even thou I’d rather stay with them if I started to receive good items again. I wish their customer service was as good as ipsy’s because I would email them but they don’t even read your emails most the time.
      I’m glad I can come on here n vent lol it’s nice!

      • I would vent on IG, Twitter, anywhere it’s public. That way it’s all out there for everyone to see.
