I have been searching for the Dominique lip liner all over.. mine broke and I only have the top… now that I found WHAT it is.. I’d just like to know the color so I can buy… Send help pleeeease!

Cheryl

I check spoilers for subscriptions that I have canceled just to see if there is any kind of change in product curation. I am still glad I canceled.. A lot of repeat type of products.. I do not miss Boxycharm, which is a big surprise to me, since I loved it so much in the past and had all three boxes.

Cindy

Hello Charmer’s
I’m new waiting on my 1st box. I was not aware that I could pick, didn’t give me that option. Also on the Spoilers why so many?? With all the items it’s still like getting a Mystery Box, nothing like others Spoilers, they give you exactly what’s in your box. So how many items do we get?? I signed up for Luxe, then they put me on Wait List, upset about that. Thank you

Barb

I too was concerned about not getting choice on my first premium box. I found in the fine print that choice stars with second box…

Nancy

I bit the bullet and signed up for Boxycharm. But I am still a little unsure how the choice works. Maybe one you lovely charmers can give more info. Do you get to choose a product for your first box or does it happen the following month? And do you usually receive an email about choosing? What about the day of the month for when choice happens? Thank you for helping out a Boxy newbie.

Jen

You won’t get to choose for a your first month as you always receive the first box for the month you sign up in, and choice day always happens the month before. I.e. choice for April was back in mid-March. So you’ll be able to choose from the May box going forward. Choice for May is tomorrow, 19th April and should be available on the website from 12pm ET. The add-ons sale also starts at this time (extra items you can buy at discount prices which will ship later). There isn’t a set day of the month for choice but it does get announced in the website and social media.

Nancy

Thank you, Jen, for this info.

Tabby O

After researching the two ND palettes, they are both comprised of existing shades. So, I guess such exclusive configuration for Boxy. The Ayana colors are Harlow (Mini Glam), Lash Line (Glam Midi), Satin Skin (Purple-Blue and Palette 10), Crease (Glam Midi), & Glam Green (Green-Brown and Palette 9). The Jubilee colors are Vintage Taupe (Tropical), Intense (Love Midi), Limoncelle (Tropical), Enigma (Metropolis), Mint Frost (Tropical). So both palettes are compilations of existing palettes many (like myself) may already have if you’re a collector or purchase a lot of her palettes.

V

Got mine today, not sure how i feel about it. I wish they look at the profile.

ND Jubille, Ampoule (choice), Dragunfire color corrector, sculpting lipstick and body cleanser

ReneeH

Wow, I just got mine last week…so late! But I’m happier with it than the March box which was my first. I got:

Earth Harbor Serum (my choice) – love it!
ND Ayana palette – love it!
Eloise body glow – like it
Be a Bombshell lipgloss in Tempted – RED? NO!
Creme Shop – shading trio – NO, will never use

So even though I won’t use 2 products, its still a win for me. $25 for 3 items worth over $100

Amanda

I wasn’t aware that when you let boxy chose for you that you still get one of the choices. I guess I thought you got something different. If I would have known that I might have made a choice but I didn’t really like any of the choices but I have nothing bad to say about my box! This is probably one of my favorite boxes that I’ve received in a long time!! I received variation C2104137-BA….
-ND Ayana Palette
-Earth Harbor Ampoule
-Eloise Body Glow
-Illuminati Lipgloss in Theory
-Be a bombshell Lipgloss in All Dolled Up
I finally got a box where all the shades are wearable. That NEVER happens. Haha

Cindy

Hello
Where do you find your numbers at, like you posted?? I can’t find any. Thank you for your help
Cindy

Autumn P

Hey Cindy…I know this is a veerrry late response. (I am looking back on older articles trying to find something & got sucked into the comments, lol.) Anyhow, I believe the # is on the card insert -tht shows what items you receive & stuff…At the bottom right/left -hand corner. (The reason I know this is frm watching unboxings on youtube.) Hope this helps! I keep going back-n-forth between this box, Ipsy, or (POSSIBLY) Allure…I can’t decide. Each has their pros and cons, ya know?

Rachel

Am I the only one who didn’t get an ND palette? I’m super bummed out by this and I feel like it is because I purchased one in pop up.

Crystal

Doubt it’s because of purchasing one.I was worried I would miss out on the one I wanted if I waited again like I did with the coral palette. So deciding I was not missing out on the Jubilee palette I bought one…got my box and whenever ad ons ship I will own 2 of them.

ReneeH

I haven’t even received mine yet, not even a tracking number…so irritated right now. No clue what is in mine. I wish they would do the product reveal like Ipsy does.

Melissa

My box hasn’t shipped either. I sent an email to customer service about it over the weekend and am waiting to hear back :/ I thought they always shipped within 5 business days of the first, so for it to not even have a shipping label when we’re so far in the month, I’m not very impressed right now >:(

echo

Haven’t received mine yet, either! I know I’m in the minority on this but I like not knowing what I’m going to get until it arrives. When I started beauty boxes a few years ago that seemed to be the default setting. I still care about what I get, though, so I wish it would get here already.

Blue

What you buy in add-ons and pop-up doesn’t have an effect. I bought the exact same palette I received in my box previously. It came with a smashed pan. They said they couldn’t replace it just refund it then a few weeks later here comes my box with the exact same palette. I’d contact customer support through their bot on the site if I were you. This was the worse box I’ve ever gotten from BC. I’m super disappointed because lately my boxes had been pretty good. Last months was downright great. The value of my box was really low and I got all the cheapest things. I got the ND palette and my choice was the Earth Harbor serum. I got the tweezers, the Dragun color corrector, that nasty cheap Illuminati glitter gloss. The Illuminati brand has no business in a BC box.

Amanda

I thought everyone was suppose to get one this go round because of the outburst they had the last time when only some people got the peak palette

Rachel

Thanks, I’m mad too! Lol. Based on these comments I think everyone else did get it. Grrrr.

Amanda

What you buy in pop up shouldn’t affect what comes in your box at all!! If anything it should be the complete opposite showing that’s what you really want!! Sorry for 2 comments but the more I thought about it the more aggravated I got for you because that’s so not fair. Haha

DoxyMama

I received one of my base boxes today (I have 2 and Luxe). This box was disappointing and has been for some time. It contained the Natasha Denona palette in Jubilee. The brown tones would have been a better fit but I am going to make the brighter colors work. They’re really pretty. But the palettes are “exclusive to Boxycharm” so who knows if the formulas are the same as retail. Next was the Touch in Sol primer. It says it’s cooling but we’ll see. Then I received TWO Dragun Beauty products….one tubing mascara (nope!) and a lavender corrector (nope again). Last was the Terre Mars body cleanser. Neutral about this, but I’m sure I will use it and it’s a nice size tube. So that’s one really nice product, two meh and 2 awful. Now…let’s bet that I will receive the exact same box when it arrives. Time to let one go.

Tabby O

The palettes color combo may be exclusive to Boxy, but those colors aren’t. They are in her regular line, both of them. The Ayana palette, I’m still praying to get, because I have the Jubilee for the most part. So, Ayana colors are Harlow (Mini Glam), Lash Line (Glam Midi), Satin Skin (Purple-Blue and Palette 10), Crease (Glam Midi), & Glam Green (Green-Brown and Palette 9). The Jubilee colors are Vintage Taupe (Tropical), Intense (Love Midi), Limoncelle (Tropical), Enigma (Metropolis), Mint Frost (Tropical). So both palettes are compilations of existing palettes many (like myself) may already have.

MJ

I got my box today and it wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. I even got the earth toned ND palette that I wanted but just assumed I wouldn’t get. My other items were the touch in sol (my choice), a Bombshell lipgloss in a nice earthy shade, the Creme shop highlighter palette which I threw away because it smelled like chemicals and I don’t need any generic highlighter and the Eloise Beauty body glow which I really like. Very happy overall this month!

Jamey

Geesh,
This is shaping up to be a horrible month….the items arent appealing or brands I want to try or would purchase from…just mostly cheap filler items and we will get like 1 name brand and the rest filler junk…

Ipsy has been awful for my plus since they started doing the “pick 3” thing.. the brands and recycling the same products are getting really bad with nothing interesting.

I’ve been with boxy for 6/7 years straight, never missing a box, but I know my luxe boxes I’ve been wasting money as well where it would be better to get base and buy pop up/add on and buy the item from people selling them that month from things I want and save a lot of money and not have a bunch of junk laying around I cant give away…

Steph H.

I received my box today and it’s variation ♡9. I received:

ND Jubilee Palette
Earth Harbor Ampoule (My Choice)
Terre De Mars Body Cleanser
Dragun Beauty Color Corrector Lavatory
Illuminati Cosmetics Lip Gloss

I do wish I would’ve received the other ND pallete because I could’ve used all the shades without having to use another palette for a cohesive look, but this one is pretty! I’m happy with everything except for the Illuminati lip gloss. I don’t like lip gloss, so I would’ve rather received the lashes or tweezers instead. I don’t like the Dragun Beauty brand, but since it’s lavender, I decided to try it on my under eye circles and it works great! I do really like this box. 4 out of 5 for me!

Nicki Renee Doyle

Got my shipping notification and my weight is 1.3lbs. I picked the tinted moisturizer and really worried I’m getting the face oil instead of 1 out of 2 ND palettes. Last month I got the ridiculous 111skin instead of the LC palette and was SO upset. If anyone has received their box and it’s the same weight can you please let me know what you got?

Ashley

Here’s what I received..
1. Earth Harbors ampoule ( I chose the Studio Makeup tinted moisturizer Grrrrr) Not really happy I didnt even get my choice!!
2. Illuminati lip gloss. I love gloss but lord this is too much. I’m not 12.
3. Dragun color corrector- Liked it! Works well.
4.ND eyeshadow in Ayana- I have prob 20 palettes right now from all of my sub boxes and hardly wear eye shadow. They for sure will go bad before ever using.
5. Tweezers. Between those and brushes I am stocked into the 25th century.
I guess I am bitter because I didn’t get my choice but hey.. Still fun to get a few presents to myself every month.

Laura

Tabby O,

There are tons of ppl reselling both palettes on Facebook/IG/Reddit groups & subs. You can usually get some pretty good deals ☺️

Tabby O

I’m happy to pay shipping if you’d like to get rid of that Palette? I didn’t get it in my box and was praying I might get lucky. I had neck surgery last month and I’m almost to the point of canceling since my budget is getting tighter with me not working.

Haley

Why are there so many repeated items?? 🤦🏻‍♀️

Jamey

I just commented about that…body and ipsy are doing it..ipsy has been doing the same recycling of items for over a year now..like BAD and even the choices arent good….
Since ipsy bought boxy, I assume we will see a lot more of this here, and this month, the filler items are cheapy dollar store looking makeup . Which means we get 1 named brand and the rest is just junk filler stuff….it seems to be going downhill and I hope it doesnt get to the point ipsy does.

Haley

Ughh that sucks! Boxy charm used to be one of the best subscriptions out there. The past few months I’ve been giving away majority of the stuff I received. I think I’m probably going to cancel soon. I just resubscribed in January and they’re already doing repeats in April. That’s crazy!!

carrol henderson

I get only allure beauty box. I really like it. I usually use most of the products they send. There are 3 full size products in the box some great and some not so. But for the money it’s worth every penny.

Jenna

Anyone else get the Aurora Eyeliner in Espresso? I cannot even believe how bad it is.

It looks orangey, like henna. I was able to get the Espresso/Brown color out of in once – one eye looked like I was wearing a burnt orange eyeliner (with tons of streaking) and my other eye looked like I was wearing an Espresso eyeliner. It bleeds SEVERELY and is extremely watery. I’m wondering if I got a bad one or if this product just is that horrific.

Jamey

I haven’t got my box yet…the ONLY hood eyeliner I have got from Boxy is Marc Jacob’s. Every other filler type no name brand (even the kat von d) was dried out, no pigment, cheaply made…like I’ve tried better eyeliner from the DOLLAR STORE!!! So it wouldnt surprise me to hear there are issues with it…I think they give us like 1 brand name item and throw in a bunch of cheapo junk type products as a filler….since ipsy bought them, it’s got a LOT worse.

Laura

Yep. My add on are coming in today but April box is still just sitting around lol. Im hoping they dont give me all skincare and gloss.

Mountaineer95

I am so tired of seeing so many blatant “Dirty Little Secrets”-type “brands”! I looked up every single one of these items listed with names I didn’t recognize (so, NOT Tarte, Geller, ND)…so many of them are bogus. Horribly poor-quality websites littered with typos/grammatical issues where you have to dig around to find the “about” section which is often just a poorly written pile of trend-words. One of them is actually the contract manufacturer’s name itself on the package (like Boxy didn’t even bother to at least upgrade to private label packaging). To get a true RV for any of these variations, I would deduct every one of those filler products from the “total” to get what it’s actually worth.

mmstevens

I’m glad I’m not the only one who researches these unknown brands. Boxycharm has been sending out so many filler products that are made by scammers or some kind of shady brand. Some of these brands even put out fake articles about their brand/product to make it seem as if there’s a positive opinion of their brand online and they go to great lengths to make sure negative reviews don’t get seen. Surely boxycharm researches the brands they do business with and the products they put in boxes. So does boxycharm just not care what kind of garbage they send us. Not to mention, I feel like some of these cheap products contain harmful ingredients. I received a terrible primer in my February box…idk what was in it but I used it twice and after the first time my skin didn’t look good for a few days. After I used it the second time my skin became so unsmooth, broken out, and my pores looked like I hadn’t washed my face in weeks. I’m just now getting my skin straightened back out and I’m pretty sure that weird primer was the cause.

More customers need to look into this problem and complain to boxycharm about it.

Tanya

I got a shipping notice a few minutes ago. I wish, once the box was created, they would post what is coming (like ipsy). Now I have to watch it sit at Boxycharm for the week then watch the craziness of the box coming near my city… away from it… then near again… 🙂 I do like the anticipation a little, but I’d rather have the reveal.

Stefanie

Prettypony I seem to always get lashes and they are my last choice on the boxy quiz. I’ll trade lashes to you monthly (if I get them) for something you don’t like from your box

Emma

Got my box today.

ND palette Ayana
Studio makeup tinted moisturizer
Eloise body glow
Flirtacious monarch lash pack
Terre de mars body cleanser

Happiest ive been with a box in 5 months!

Yolanda

I chose the TIS Primer. I’d like the Farmacy Oil the green corrector, and maneater mascara. Wouldn’t mind the tarte eyeliner, eyelashes, either ND palette and even the tweezers 🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻 Really hope I get some of these LOL.

Laura

I’m just bracing myself for the 9,000,000 posts on IG/Reddit etc. about how nobody got a ND five pan.

This is so much filler garbage. There are definitely *some* gems, but they’re few & far. Glad I cancelled!

Meli

That gloss looks like a Louboutin knock off!!! Hard pass

Carol

I keep almost signing back up, but then I see this and feel relieved that I didn’t.

Murakami

Why on earth are they including kids/tweens makeup lines (Petite n’ pretty) in a box that is in no way targeted at that demographic? Yeah, yeah I know some people who subscribe have kids they share items with (and that’s rad!) and some subscribers may be teens but nope. Not cool, Boxy. Not cool. And this is from someone who is “petite” in rl.

Mary GT

I agree, and this is also an old product. I remember not feeling pleased when I received it over a year ago.

ERIKA

I received that mascara months ago in a box. I had never heard of the brand and was disappointed to find out it was for tweens.

Alice

Yep. I received it over a year ago.

Jackie

I got this mascara in a previous box and while I was initially annoyed, I ended up really liking it. It was great for days I did more natural makeup and was one of few mascaras to not irritate my eyes at all

Amy

I would never have known Petite n Pretty was a tween brand, I assumed it meant petite as in small packaging. I’m petite as well, though I usually just say I’m short since to me petite feels daintier and I’m in no way dainty lmao

I do think the packaging is cute, monstera leaves are always trendy for spring/summer but I don’t want another black mascara. Won’t be mad if I get it but it’s definitely not something I want
