Boxy Charm [Spoilers]

Recommended Posts

Is it that some of us will not get as many products as others or will some just get products other than those three shown in the spoiler?  I am ok with getting different products, but not alright with getting fewer products.  It would sort of stink to get a 3 item box when others get a 5 item box. 

Beauty boxes always send the same number of products to everyone.  Boxy is a 5 item box and you should get 5 items,  It sounds to me that they are switching things up and handing out different products.  

 

Mine is arriving weds.  This video shows the other 2 items you may get.  The nail polish comes in other colors also.

  I got exactly the same items in the video, I'm trying to cancel my Boxycharm. I can't figure out how to do it on their new website and emailed them so hopefully they respond. I just got the highlighting cream in the So Susan Lip Love bag, already swapped it. Boxycharm has consistently been going downhill for me, I hated last month's box and this one was another waste I don't like anything in it. I hate the nude nail polish color and the lip color is too nude for me. Plus I don't like how they could be such a big difference in the items people receive.

Just wanted to drop by and tell you guys, my box was .77 and it had 5 items.

The Mask, Brush, Lipstick, Highlighting cream and Nail polish.

Mine is 0.687 and I REALLY wanted that Oscar Blandi (naturally I thought they were teasing us with the last spoiler and I thought were getting all of that stuff), but no.  I'm willing to bet that Oscar Blandi stuff is pretty heavy.

Yep, this is my box also.

IF that is a full size of highlighting cream, I wonder why it's so " special"? Teeny tube I almost missed in the shredded paper.

 

My lipstick is a pretty color but the nail polish is beige. I won't use beige nail polish. 

Plus, I remember when Little Black Bag used to give us " free extras" of both Cargo eye shadow and NcLA nail polish. 

 

I'm wondering if someone new now owns BoxyCharm. I don't like my box at all, and this is the first time.

Also, if they think that box has a theme, " Sea La Vie", then they're delusional. LOL.

my lipstick is ugly, not even gonna swatch it. It smells funky, it's glittery and says it's sheer (not into that at all). It's a weird coral color but like beige coral .. I would wear it but without the glitter and if it were matte and opaque.

 

edit: yea what is up .. that theme made no sense lol

Hopefully this isn't a new trend for Boxycharm.  Show us three terrific spoilers and then send most of us different stuff (Yes, I'm looking at you Ipsy).  I got the same box as the video.  I like the weird beige/gray nail polish and my lipstick is a pretty wine color, but the highlighting cream isn't impressing me with how tiny it is for full size.

5 items.
Always love brushes.
I love highlighting cream too. A little goes a long way so it's Okay it's small.
Nail polish - not loving the nude but maybe it will surprise me.
Hoping the mask is good. Love skin products.
Cargo eye shadow is a yellow color I will never use so I'll give it away.
I guess technically the brush alone gets me my money's worth but still not in love with this month.

 

UPDATE:  I actually like the nude color of the polish but remember why I don't really like NCLA.  Their stuff takes way too many coats.  I can put on a Butter London or most all Lauren B's - one coat in a hurry and it looks good.  The NCLA will have streaks, etc. which is fine when you have time but if you want a quick look, not so good.

 

The highlighter is a bit thick.  I like the Borghese one I got in SampleSociety's mystery box batch better.  I thought it looked good but when I left the house and was in natural light I saw it didn't blend very well at all.

I like the polish color also and have it on right now,  It reminds me of OPI which is my fav polish. You can actually get away with only 2 coats.  But I added a 3rd the next day and afterwards realized that I may prefer just two ( now that I have tried the 3rd).  

 

I always wear multiple coats, and this polish dries well and fast just like OPI.  You can do 2 coats pretty close and not worry about sleeping and waking up to waffle imprints from your sheets,

There have been two other spoilers:

 

George I'll Make You Look Amazing Spray and yourMinerals Transparent Veil Setting Powder.

 

I'm hoping for another spoiler today or tomorrow before deciding to get this box.  Do they usually spoil the entire box?

The gorge I'll Make You Look Amazing spray was enough to get me to jump in, the stuff is like magic for my chlorine-dried hair this summer and the price of the box is less than retail on that spray alone.

They have been just releasing 3 of products so I doubt they will spoil the whole box

Yes it is!! At first, I was so aggravated that I would be getting one from FFF and then another the same month from boxy, but after trying this stuff I say bring it on!! It works really well and doesn't have a bad smell to it at all.

    • I'm having some backsliding, but still trying! I'm really seeing progress using my full size cleanser, toner and moisturizer. I decided to change my routine. I have been experiencing for a while now some strange kind of boredom. When I'm not working, I really don't have fun any more. I don't get chores done either. I'll just get up, and the time just passes, and my room will be messy with a pile of laundry, and I don't get it done, and it makes me feel bad. I can't focus on reading a book or watching a show or movie. I always feel my weekend is a waste. I'm not having fun when I'm lazy like this either; it feels awful.  I decided to change my routine and fight this state! I told HR I wanted to work on Saturday every week and have Thursday off every week, which makes both my work weeks and time off shorter periods. I'm hoping it will be easier to make the most of time off when it is one day instead of an entire weekend. And I might feel less tired when the work week is broken up. I also made a list of all I hope to do in my days off. I want to have my laundry done, cleaning done, write in journal, post on Makeup Talk [I do enjoy writing], watch a show or movie and read a book, and best of all use a face mask on the two days off!  I'm not using all my face masks at all. I got a flyer from Yves Rocher with some awesome new face masks and scrubs. I really want one, but not until I've used up all the masks I have now! The Thursday and Sunday off will be my special beauty days to use up products with extra relaxing beauty routines.  Last night I went out with a friend of mine and my brother to Family Dollar. While she was shopping, I looked in the beauty section. I enjoyed it. I saw some things I wanted, but did not get, because I don't need them. I saw: Aromatherapy diffuser set with a little cherub. Pretty makeup brushes. I already have a ton. No reason to wear makeup because I always go out with a face mask. I should make an effort to use eye makeup though. I need to care for myself better and put effort into myself.  Skin care set with cleanser, toner, and cream in one box, only five dollars. I think the cleanser had shea butter. I wanted to try it, but have tons of skin care going back to 2017 I need to get through!  After we took our friend to eat, we came out and had a nail in our tire and a flat. The roadside assistance man was really nice though. I got a Car Care credit card and an appointment to get it fixed today. I am backsliding with my debt snowball, but I'm not going to let it stop me. I'm just going to keep going and start over with whatever debt is smallest, being diligent with No Buy/Project Use It Up.  I have been more productive this morning, started laundry and cleaning and wrote in my journal. The more I try the better it will get! Then maybe I won't order takeout so much. I'm kind of looking forward to going to the auto shop, because it will be something to accomplish, and then I'll go to lunch with my brother (less expensive than getting Door Dash).  The first mask I will be using up is my smallest sample, Glamglow Supermud Clearing Treatment. I have many mini masks from Ipsy, etc. and I believe two full size masks and two full size scrubs, and a box of sheet masks.   
    • I guess you should exercise and eat healthy for it!
    • You absolutely tip the student!! Regardless if they have been in the business for 20 years or they are just starting out - they are putting their time and effort into giving you a gorgeous cut/colour that you will love
    • It's awesom to have the national lipstick day could really amazed the women and girls ! They will ove to have different variety of shade and color ...
    • cool, thanks for the tips!  I like all of k-beauty products I've tried so far but I haven't tried any foundations yet. The best foundation I've found is FitMe and it's super cheap but I want to change brands.  FitMe is a matte finish.
