BoxyCharm Subscription Box Review -September 2018


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:


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?

  1. 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?

    1. 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!

  2. 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.

  3. 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!
