December Boxycharm


Ugh. Here’s my Boxycharm experience.

Box 1 (September): Double charged, contacted them and they refunded my money for 1 box very quickly.

Box 2 (October): Pur Palette arrived broken, they added 1000 points to my account (worth $10) after asking me to send verification pictures twice.

Box 3 (November): Never arrived. They informed me it had been delivered but I never got it. They told me they would send me another November box as soon as possible.

Box 4 (December): I received 2 December boxes instead of 1 December and the 1 November they said they would send. I emailed them 3 days ago asking what happened and since it’s the weekend, I haven’t heard back yet.

And there you go…


Real Her Blush Kit $32 – The colors are pretty, a bit glittery but I’m generally OK with that. Maybe I’m petty but the fact that the palette is made of matte off white cardboard annoys me. The first time you swirl a brush in there you’ll have a mess. I personally like to keep my makeup neat and tidy, so this is a problem.

Bellapierra Pro Concealer Palette $29.99 – No, just no. Take a look at the green pan in the picture below. Notice the poor manufacturing and exactly how little product is in those pans. The orange stained my hand when I swatched it. I had to wait hours for it to fade. I imagine it would be great for covering body tattoos though.

Pretty Vulgar My Lips Are Sealed Liquid Lipstick $24 – I am not a good judge of lip stuff so take this with a grain of salt. I found it sticky and thick.

Tarte Tarteist Lash Paint Mascara $23 – The saving grace of this box!

Crown Brush Deluxe Blush Brush $12 – OK, a bit scratchy and too dense for how I apply blush. Doesn’t hold a candle to the Wet N Wild brushes I just purchased.


And there you have it. I have 2 of these boxes and I feel guilty even trying to gift any of these products. I’ll wait for a full reveal of January’s box and decide if I want to cancel or not. So sad.
UPDATE 12/19: I just received an email from Boxycharm letting me know that they’re sending me a November box. I’ll report back when it arrives, keep your fingers crossed that I don’t end up with 3 sad December boxes 😂

Do you see the little empty area in the bottom left green pan? This stuff is poured thin.







  1. That is such a bad experience! I never had Boxycharm but it seems like I will not be buying the subscription. I always see these monthly boxes and I think it is a huge gamble. Majority of the time, I see things that I do not really want or like, and I think it is just a waste of space. I hope you get a better box for January and I hope you like it!

  2. damn i am so sorry you went through this, I had the same kind of experience with another subscription box. I literally just signed up for boxycharm, I am waiting for my first box now

  3. How awful that you’ve had such a bad experience with Boxy! I’ve been subbed for a year and knock on wood haven’t had any problems whatsoever so I hope they get it together for you.

    I got different items in my box but was as i pleased as you-this was the worst month by far. I’ve never been disappointed til now-I was hoping December would be really good because, December. I got the bronzer, it’s awful. However the Pretty Vulgar lipstick is much better than it looks-I wasn’t impressed until I tried it. It’s weightless, super comfortable, and pretty long wearing for not being a matte-you may be pleasantly surprised.

    Good luck ❤️

  4. Ugh I’m sorry you’ve had such a sucky experience! This box was a huge letdown. I thought since it was the last one of the year they would’ve had some awesome products. I feel like they didn’t know what to put in, so they tossed random products in a box.

  5. Urg. That’s a sucky experience. Sorry.
    Have you tried Look Fantastic boxes? I’m really enjoying mine. Not full sized like Boxycharm, but the value was insane as well. And the products were quite interesting.
