BoxyCharm Premium July 2020 Review

Each box comes with a card detailing the items included and often listing upcoming sales and promotions. It looks like my assortment this month is box #49.

Now, on to the items!


MORPHE x Manny MUA Glam Palette – Retail Value $20.00

What is it about palettes that get me so excited? I have so many at this point, but something about a fresh one filled with a new combo of colors just makes me so happy. This is a very pretty assortment of nudes, warm creams, rich russets, and a bold magenta. It also contains two shimmering highlighters. All of these shades performed well, but the shimmering zodiacs were by far the stars of there show. Aries in particular is a stunning deep reddish-brown with a teal shimmer. The mattes performed fine too, though that magenta shade did need a little coaxing. The highlighters were both beautiful on and applied like a dream with my favorite large fluffy brush!

Top to bottom: Dust Cloud, Scorpio, Fire Witch, Leo, Sophie, and Spellbound.

Top to bottom: Cancer, Zaya, Boy Next Door, Gamenta, Aries, and Howl.

Apollo and Nova highlighters.


Lord Jones High CBD Formula Body Lotion, 50 mL – Retail Value $40.00

I have sensitive calves that react really badly to the majority of lotions I try on them. They get angry red bumps that last for days! I have to be careful with the lotions I apply for this reason. When I saw this one was fragrance-free, I immediately thought it might be a good fit. I have also found that formulas with CBD help with redness on my face, so why not my legs too? Happily, my hopes were rewarded. My legs love this stuff! I am actually sad the bottle is on the smaller end.


Perricone MD No Makeup Lipstick, 4.2 g – Retail Value $30.00

I think this was my favorite item this month. I love natural looking lipstick and this is more of a nourishing and hydrating balm with a sophisticated feel. Even the tube design was thoughtful! The cap screws into place so it won’t get misplaced in the bottom of your purse. The shade of this lippy was a sheer wash of natural pink that enhanced my lips with a beautiful flush while delivering a dose of hydration thanks to the jojoba oil inside. I also appreciate the SPF 15!

I love this stuff!


Nelson J Beverly Hill Argan Oil 7 Moisture Healing Mask, 3.4 oz – Retail Value $24.00

Wow, this stuff is coconutty! If you love smelling like the tropics, this is for you. I found it a little overwhelming. The mask itself works great though, scent aside. The cream inside is thick and heavy, and a little goes a long way to coat dry strands. It is also a pretty quick mask, too! You apply it to towel-dried hair, leave on for a minute, then rinse. Of course, you can totally leave it on longer if you want. It created a softness in my hair that was a little slippy, but still left my natural almost-waves intact.


Brow Bar by Reema Hollywood Icon Face Kit in ‘Drama Queen’ – Retail Value $45.00

I have never heard of this brand, but the color palette inside this gold compact is very pretty! It isn’t one of those palettes where everything is absolutely useful to me, but that is ok. I actually really appreciate that there is a translucent powder inside because I use that a lot and in the middle of the day. My nose and forehead can always use a little touch-up. Also included was a peachy terra-cotta blush, two bronzers that honestly could both also be blushes, 4 eye shadows, and two highlighters. Everything has pretty nice pigment in here! The eyeshadows were especially stunning together and very smooth! The green is filled with so much shimmer. It also arrived with a double-ended brush. I don’t think this is a $45 palette. But it is still a nice palette!

Top to bottom: Translucent powder, blush, and 2 bronzers.

The 4 included eyeshadows.

And the two highlighters!


BoxyCharm Neon Jelly Pouch with Poms

I don’t think I like this bag, and I certainly don’t like it compared to the option of a beauty or makeup item instead. I mean, it’s kind of cute… I like pom poms… but this fell flat for me.

Verdict: My BoxyCharm Premium had a value of $159 without the orange bag, which is good for a $35 box for sure. I admittedly wasn’t as taken with every single item inside. My favorites were the Perricone MD lipstick, Morphe palette, and Lord Jones lotion. I could have totally skipped that orange bag. The hair mask and second palette were both nice but not favorite items in my collection by any means. Either way, the value was very much here this month, I just think the assortment might have been a little off for me.

I love natural/vegan beauty products, Korean skincare, unique jewelry, and weird candies from far away places. When I am not waiting for my next exciting box you can find me painting or taking photographs of interesting people. I never leave home without pug hair somewhere on my shirt and a bold lipstick on my smile.

  1. I cancelled Boxy a couple months ago, but I love the Perricone MD lipstick, too! I bought like 3 of them in a pop up sale because they feel so luxe and nourishing. My other HG item from Perricone MD is their Invisiblur, which is excellent in its own, but superb as a primer as well.

  2. The bag is the same as the Sephora 2017 Sun Safety kit.

    Glad I cancelled. Lord Jones lotion would have made the bag worth it IF I had received it, but there was no way to guarantee it. Instead, we had to pick between 3 equally useless (to me) face palettes.

    From the photos, it looks like your lipstick has some wax bloom heat damage on it, but it’s not mentioned in the review. I think it’s important to note because a lot of people experienced the same issue this month with that product.

    • Yeah the only reason I didn’t unsubscribe is because I want that lotion haha. Fingers crossed.

      • Good luck!

    • It is the same bag!
      Megan, I use this bag as a waterproof bag to transport my wet bathing suit, and I love it! I have some of the other bags that are marketed as such, and moisture leaches through. This one holds it all in. Just thought it might brighten your perspective – not super cool, but VERY useful.

    • I got one of the lipsticks from Ulta last year and it looked like that when it arrived. It does have a set expiration date on the bottom, so I felt safe using it. I think it’s the ingredients in it since I got mine in more temperate weather.

  3. Megan, is the Perricone MD lipstick the “Original Pink” or the “Rose” color? It looks like it could be either. Thanks in advance!

  4. I have yet to recieve my base or Premium box. They shipped 10 days ago. One says it’s supposed to be delivered today but the last update, 3 days ago, said it left Chicago and I’m in Phoenix. Since it hasnt shown it has arrived in Phoenix, I’m gonna assume it’s not getting delivered today. My Premium says delivery on Saturday but I’m not gonna hold my breath.

  5. I received both palettes and the bag in my box. I like the morphe palette. The Brow Bar palette went in the trash. I’m not going to wear orange bronzer, and I thought the pigment of the shadows was worse than a child’s play makeup toy. The zipper on my bag is broken.
    I also got a toner- I like it. The folly fire lipsticks- 2 of the 3 are grandma colors, and a Laura Gellar liner- better than I expected. That was my first and last month of premium.

  6. I received this same version. I was disappointed the bag was one of our products there is no way it is worth 20.00. I liked both palettes very much and was excited to try the Lord James. I had tried several Dr Perricone products before and really enjoy them was glad to get the lipstick. I wouldn’t have chosen the hair product personally I really only use shampoo and conditioner, but will give it a try smells nice and doesn’t take long that’s nice.

  7. Received the same box, very unimpressive and the bag is hideous. Shame on you Boxycharm. Yes the lipstick was the best part of the entire box.

  8. I received the same box. I only liked the Morphe palette & hair mask. Upset about getting the bag, it would be different if it was a really nice.
