Hi all! I received my September BoxyCharm this week. I wasn’t as excited as I usually am. I don’t know if you’ve heard that they have released a larger box called BoxyLuxe. On the day it released, I got up early and tried for 5 hours to subscribe. I didn’t get it and am on the waiting list for December’s BoxyLuxe (it’s quarterly). So, I’m a bit salty towards BoxyCharm right now and am trying to decide if I want to keep the subscription.
Boxycharm is just $21 a month for 5-6 beauty items, most of them full-sized. It is a nice way to try new makeup and beauty tools.
This month I received:
- Alamar Cosmetics The Ojitos Brush Trio
- LORAC PRO Liquid Lipstick
- Butter London Stroke of Wow Roll-On Eyeliner
- Laura Geller Baked Blush-n-Brighten
- PRETTY VULGAR Nightingale Eyeshadow Palette
I just want to say that I’m not going to swatch any of these because I will be giving most of it away to friends…
This Laura Geller baked blush is in the shade Tropic Hues. It’s a pretty shimmery coral/pink. I think this would be really pretty in the spring/summer seasons. I have tried Laura Geller blushes before and they are very nice — light and shimmery.
I love LORAC lip glosses. They are so comfortable and not sticky at all. I haven’t tried their liquid lips. I wear nudes and pinks, so this isn’t for me, but I have a friend who will love it!
The eyeliner has a tiny pizza cutter like roller on the applicator. This is to roll it on your eyelids. I am not an eyeliner expert, but I tried this and it’s really hard to use! I’ll see if my daughter can figure it out.
This is the Pretty Vulgar Nightingale palette. It’s a cool toned, smoky palette. I think this will be really nice for fall and winter! I have these types of shades, so I will be passing it on, but it’s pretty and the packaging is fun!
This is the one item I’m keeping out of the September box. I LOVE theses brushes! The green handles are fun and the brushes work really well. I have already used these. I really enjoy getting quality eye brushes!
So, I think this is a nice box. The items will make great gifts. I think I may be on product overload, though. I think I’m going to keep BoxyCharm until December to see if I get the next BoxyLuxe.
Do you get BoxyCharm or did you get BoxyLuxe this month (lucky)? What did you think of the September box?

I just got mine in the mail today and I’m not too thrilled either. I think after last month I haven’t been happy with Boxycharm. So much so that I didn’t even try for Boxyluxe. I’m sorry that you didn’t get it… I know a lot of people are complaining about that.
As far as this box the only thing I’m loving is the brushes but I guess I have to play with the products in the morning.
Maybe next month will be better?
I agree with you about last month. I do love the brushes, I’ve been using them since I got them. Hopefully the next few months will be better. I’ll post if I get in BoxyLuxe for December, that would be exciting!
It looks like a wide range but not sure if use most of these products. I love the look of the packaging for the eyeshadow palette but like you I already have all the colours, but the eyeshadow brushes are nice and bright. I can never have too many eye brushes so I think that’s probably the main thing I’d be interested in if I got the box too.
Yes, the brushes are really nice, but I don’t want/need any of the rest of it! Hopefully next month will be better!
I, personally, was particularly annoyed about that pizza cutter eyeliner. So gimmicky and unnecessary. I got the hank and Henry lip product and I hated the doe foot on it! The rest I suspect I’ll use though, and I love the brushes!
Yes, that is a weird eyeliner! I wanted to try the Hank and Henry lippie, it’s too bad it has a strange applicator! The brushes are great!
