I had a weird snafu with my first Boxycharm subscription box.

I placed my order and immediately after entering my credit card information I received an error page indicating something went wrong. I waited a few hours, watched my inbox for a confirmation email, looked at my newly made account and received no indication that my order had been received. So, I placed a new order, everything went through as it was supposed to and I sat back to wait for my box. A few days later while checking my bank account, I noticed that I had 2 $21 charges from Boxycharm, one right after the other. I immediately emailed Boxycharm, they emailed back within a couple of days and after 1 more reply email, they refunded one charge and apologized for whatever glitch had happened. Color me happy!

The box cost $21 and contained:

Tarte Rainforest Of The Sea II Palette ($36) I already have one so this will be gifted, swatches in previous blog post here.

Bellapierre Waterproof Gel Liner in Black ($15)

Pur Eyelashes ($14)

Moda 3 Pc Brush Set ($26)

Aloette Face Paint ($35)

It was definitely worth the $21 but not the $126 valued.

I’m definitely looking forward to September’s box!!

Winner for a cheek tint! Lovely natural matte blush color.


Nice rubberized handles, synthetic bristles are nice but nothing super great. I would compare these to Ulta brushes.

    1. The good news is that the Tarte palette has been on sale, off and on, for about $18 on various websites, so you can still pick it up at a great price 🙂

    1. The brushes are pretty nice, they don’t shed and are soft. I definitely think they’re worth the cost 😉

    1. I subbed to Birchbox for about a year but ended up with so many little packets of samples I just couldn’t use, although their points system used to be so great. Thanks for the ❤️

    1. Ooh, I haven’t tried Glossy box. How have you liked it? The unconfirmed rumor is that Boxycharm will have a different palette in every box until December 💛
