BoxyCharm Overview

About the Brand

BoxyCharm ($28 per month) is one of the most popular beauty subscription boxes that we review, with lots of loyal customers. They promise 5 full-size beauty products each month from a variety of both indie and established brands, with a total retail value of up to $200 in every box. The beauty items featured vary from month to month, and will include beauty tools as well as skincare and haircare items—but BoxyCharm definitely leans more makeup-heavy than other popular beauty boxes. 

Ipsy and Boxycharm merged and today, the Boxycharm Box replaces the former Ipsy Glam Bag Plus and Boxycharm Base boxes.

BoxyCharm FAQ

Is BoxyCharm worth it?
With a promised retail value of up to $200 per $28 monthly box, you'll typically get a great value from this subscription, even if you don't love every single item in your box. We've unboxed and published BoxyCharm reviews for over 80 individual monthly boxes from BoxyCharm since 2013– read our detailed reviews above to see what's inside past boxes, and read comments from other subscribers. You can also read our overview of what we received in 6 months of BoxyCharm to see exactly how many eyeshadow palettes and makeup tools we received over half a year! In that article, you’ll see that we found the average retail value of this monthly subscription was $135/month over the 6 months we analyzed.
When does BoxyCharm ship?
For new subscribers, BoxyCharm boxes within the US typically ship 5-10 business days from successful billing. For existing subscribers, each monthly box is shipped within 5-10 days of the first of the month. Canadian customers and non-continental US residents may experience longer shipping times.
What happened to BoxyCharm Premium, and BoxyCharm BoxyLuxe?
*BoxyCharm Premium and BoxyLuxe have been rebranded now that BoxyCharm is a part of IPSY. The former BoxyCharm Premium ($27.99/month) subscription is now “BoxyCharm by IPSY” ($28/month) with Beauty Boost (additional $15/month). Beauty Boost is a monthly upgrade that gives you first dibs on a premium, splurge-worthy bonus full-size product for your BoxyCharm or Icon Box. *Get first access to exclusive items available only in hyper-limited quantities *See your curated Beauty Boost product when it’s “Choice” time each month *Save a guaranteed 60% or more off retail for just $15/month *Your Beauty Boost ships with your bag for the month
How do I select my Boxycharm Choice option?
When the Choice window is open (check dates here), you can log in to your account and select the Choice banner at the top of the screen. There you’ll see the makeup products available for that month. Select your items and add them to your cart. When you are ready to check out, you hit the “Confirm and Get More” button to save your choice.
Is there a Boxycharm referral program? How about a loyalty program?
Yes! You can earn Charms, or BoxyCharm points, by referring friends. Login to your account and click “Earn Charms” to send email invitations, use their social media sharing buttons, or copy your unique referral code to send to friends another way. Make sure your friends remember to enter your referral code into the indicated field as they checkout! Once your friend is billed for their first box, you’ll see 500 Charms magically appear in your account.

In addition to earning Charms by referring friends, you can earn them by reviewing the items in your monthly box. Remember that 100 Charms = $1 to use in the Charm Room, which typically has full-size products listed ranging from $7-$45.

How do I cancel my BoxyCharm subscription?
You can easily cancel your subscription online at any time in your BoxyCharm account– no chatting or calling customer service required. Keep in mind that if you cancel and end up subscribing again in the future, you may find yourself on the waitlist before your subscription is active again.

"Boxycharm is Lots of Fun!"
Apr 2, 2022
I have the Base Box, which has 5 full size products. You get to select one product from a choice of three products. I've been getting Boxycharm since Oct. '21, and really love all the prestige brands I get. All but maybe one of my boxes has been terrific! My boxes have leaned more heavily in the makeup direction, which is exactly what I want. It's always subject to change, but right now, Boxycharm is my absolute favorite!

"Best makeup & skincare subscription!!"
Mar 15, 2021
By far the best subscription there is. For $25 you get the best and expensive products for makeup and skincare. I get so excited waiting for it to come in the mail. I have recommended Boxy Charm to everyone I know.

"boxycharm sneak peak and boxycharm the awesome box!"
Mar 4, 2021
I have boxyluxe for March and hope I don't miss out on Natasha Denona! Anything from her is prime! Ignore the negative review page cuz BoxyCharm is prime! The reviews on their site are from us getting and using the products. Their products and customer service is A+! I just love them! They get back to you quickly and help you resolve any issues professionally and kindly!! You get full products from known top notch name brands and up and coming brands that you will see the majority become great sought after brands. Keep up the good work BoxyCharm! You've been #1 to me a LONG time!

Here's the full scoop! I've been a BoxyCharm Base, Luxe & Premium subscriber for 4 years. PROS: - They do pay attention to your quiz (albeit I keep getting highlighter.) - They do not send duplicates. And if they do which is rare it is a welcome one. I can't be mad at a new Sunday Riley Good Genes 3 months apart. - The product brands and quality are good so the value is amazing. - There's a good mix of product and I've hated precious few items. - The Pop Up & Add On sale are worth the membership itself. CONS: - None BASE: I love the Base box because they seem to have better products and more well-known brands as compared to the other boxes. This box always has at least one majorly coveted item, two more you'll know well and 2 that you'll likely never have heard of before but they'll be decent and you'll have at least heard of the brands before. PREMIUM: I used to enjoy Boxy Premium but recently canceled it because they were sending ONE very well-trusted product everyone knew, but the balance of the items were "unknown" and "new" brands that we never heard from again albeit the prices of the products were over-the-top. The quality of these unknown or little known brands were questionable and seemed made in China. LUXE: In the beginning the Luxe box was a great deal. It was every 3 months and contained about 7 products. One was nearly always some mini travel hair tool and one was always a big ticket item. The rest were expensive and usually at least 2 items were unknown brands we never heard from again. Most recently the Luxe just wasn't worth it. I got a cardboard box of 20 folded paper towels from "Clean Skin Club" for example that sticks to your vanity. You can get those at Dollar Store and that was kind of the last straw before I canceled. While Boxy Luxe transitioned in my opinion to terrible and Boxy Premium is an price inflated joke, the Base Box tends to ALWAYS exceed my expectations. it's fantastic and they actually pay attention to your Pop Up and Add On purchases so you won't get duplicates! That's customer service! Pop Up & Add ON Sales: These are AMAZING and I'm frankly surprised these sales have not put places like Sephora out of business. The prices alone are worth the price of admission and the brands and quality are always the highest of the highest end. It lets me try all the brands and then I become addicted to them. The fact they're intuitive and know what I'll like and what I won't is great.

I ABSOLUTELY LOVE BoxyCharm. I have been subscribing off and on for over two years. My "off" periods only occuring for financial purposes. Not that Boxy breaks the bank or anything. For twenty five dollars a month and the quality of the products received in the box $25 is a stellar deal. I typically find that I don't have to shop for makeup or skincare items at all when I am subscribed. Minus my cult favorites that I can't live without. All in all it's the best subscription box around for beauty products. HOWEVER, I am a little bit upset about the lack of advertising for the free Morphie higjlighting palette. I became a retuning customer in the month of December and would have loved to receive the palette. Oh well !
