BOXYCHARM UPDATE: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ALmBz1y3ZxI
This video is entirely my opinion, and entirely based on my views in March of 2017. Since I filmed this, a lot has changed. Including that I personally have cancelled all my subscriptions. Please realize that the opinion you are watching is of someone who has had these for YEARS - I'm allowed to get tired of "stuff" accumulating in my house, and you're allowed to be excited by new items. We don't have to think the same to respect each other's opinions. ❤️

So, neat story: at the time I published this, Boxycharm had been getting a lot of complaints. I've watched as over the past few months, Boxycharm has stepped up their game a TON.
Before y'all go and get mad at me, remember: videos like this one (as well as others that said the same thing) impact companies. If you aren't happy, SPEAK UP! And change will follow :)
Omg that exact thing happened to me with Allure beauty box. They basically called me a liar. I subscribe to six beauty boxes and gloosybox is my favorite. I need to figure out what to do with all this makeup lol yes i get them for the skincare and the rest goes in a huge pile that i need to donate to someone. I was happy to hear it wasn't just me they treated like 💩!!!!!
Please don’t toss your unused beauty products ( who turns down make-up? I’d take your unwanted make up!) besides people like myself that would love to have it, ([email protected] if you wanna share the love!) but there are also charities that donate these products for domestic violence victims or women with cancer that could use a pick me up etc. your local shelter or food bank might take them too! Don’t trash things when people can use em! Our landfills will thank you!
I found your video while looking for a good box to get. I have a very small collection of makeup and most of it is just eye shadows. I'm trying to get into doing more makeup videos and not keep using eyeliner pencil for my lips because I don't have that shade for lipstick. I'm interested in getting more makeup and using it but when I'm in the store looking at all of it, it feels overwhelming. Your video was a big help so thank you!
It really is overwhelming!! The one thing I wish with sub boxes is that they featured more drugstore products - there are so many good options at the drugstore, but because the retail price is low, it doesn't benefit the box to include a $5 product
Thank you for the honesty, i'm totally interested in an ipsy bag, too bad the service over Allure sucked, cause out of all the boxes you showed that one had the most items i was interested in, i love hair products and they can be expensive so to have them for that price would be awesome
One thing I do like about boxycharm over some of the others is their customer service. I was hit by a category 5 hurricane October 10, 2018 called Michael. Called boxy charm the cancel subscription since everything was destroyed and they actually sent me the next 3 months free of charge.
thanks for that will look in to that maybe one day we can swap some things i only just getting to know makeup and that so i don't have a lot at the min. i'm happy for you to inbox me on fb if you like with any tips. Sara-Jane O'Neill that's my name on fb and you would think at the age of 32 i would know more about makeup and sink care lol x
In the UK, I know you have Glossybox but I Also know it's different from the US version. Don't forget the drugstore has great makeup too! Of UK brands, I like Sleek for eyeshadow and Makeup Revolution for face products. On the somewhat higher end (but not crazy $$), Zoeva has incredible eyeshadow and brushes. HTH!
I your whining, quite annoying! You obviously, make your living off of disrespecting beauty boxes, that cost you around $20 monthly. Unsubscribe, if you really feel cheated! Also, within your short whiny utube, you managed to get two annoying commercials crammed in. I, personally find that, outrageous!! I won't be liking your channel, or watching it again!!!!
You do get the real pur palettes, you can even find them on pur cosmetics website. So far I enjoy boxycharm, I hate getting useless samples, I never reached for them, but I always will reach for full size, especially pallets.
Good advice and I feel the same except I am disappointed in Ipsy since I have been on the waitlist For The glambag plus for months even though I have been a customer for the 10 dollar bag almost a year. They won't even answer my emails. I do like the products though.

Boxycharm is my favorite subscription service. 21$ a month but full size luxury products. I have loved every item I’ve received. The only thing I don’t like are some of the shades they give. Doesn’t always compliment my skin tone and you can’t review products like you can with Ipsy
This is the 3rd review of yours that I've seen (1st: anti-haul / 2nd: Clarisonic vs. Foreo), and I L-O-V-E you!! I appreciate the time and energy that you invest to do in depth, high caliber reviews. I haven't jumped into the subscription box service yet, and I've been on the fence between IPSY and Allure. Again, thank you for sharing of yourself. I'm looking forward to checking out more of your videos. :-)
I totally agree with you that the subscription renewal process for Glossybox is confusing. You can easily wind up with getting automatically renewed when you do not want to. It happened to me. It is much worse if you do the 3 month or more renewal. Definitely go month to month as this is much less risky. I also tried to go from 3 month to month to month which involves cancelling the 3 month and then subscribing too the one month. Almost impossible to get this timing right. Ended up paying for duplicate boxes and not much that customer service would do so I just lost out.
I've heard so many negative reviews about Allure. I've had it since June and absolutely love the subscription. The times I had to contact customer service they were much better than I've heard online. I agree that Ipsy is my favorite though.
Ooph I could try but honestly I pretty much quit the sub world these days. I do think that Allure has stepped it up even more BUT their CS is still rough (great box as long as you never, ever have an issue!) and I think Ipsy has started to disappoint, especially as the value of Boxycharm skyrocketed.
I kind of think that a lot of people have hit "saturation" with boxes, and that's why so many people are qutting them these days. They are still EXCELLENT for anyone who doesn't have a lot of makeup (truly, excellent) but once you do, most of the subs start to get underwhelming. It doesn't make them not worth the value, but it can start to feel like "oh no, not another X" - example, people actually got sick of palettes in their Boxycharm. I thought that day would never come! Alas, you can get too much of anything, and it stops being exciting.
That was a ramble for ya haha, hopefully it makes sense 💗
I have had Ipsy for three years. It can be hit and miss but it is still my favorite. Just cancelled Boxy and Allure tonight. I feel Sephora is a bit of a waste since they offer free samples in store, but I think for the price I will keep it a bit longer.
I hate Ipsy they’ve screwed me over too many times. But you seem to be more of a skin care person so I see why you don’t prefer Sephora play or Boxy. I on the other hand love Boxycharm and Sephora play. Boxycharm has really stepped up their products and it’s truly amazing. Same with Sephora.
I have 3 subscriptions and Ipsy is my least favorite - super small samples with only 2-3 uses - products that are completely opposite of my profile info in skin tone etc - I don't even know why they make you take a quiz and then send out BB cream 4-5 shades too dark for me and blonde shampoo when I have black hair... The only thing I have used is one brush of low quality
Hi my name is Jeannie i really liked your video i did not know of a bunch of the beauty boxes that are out there thank you for showing all of them i love all different types of makeup however i dont have the funds to get alot just because what i do have i give to my children however i seen in your video that you said you had alot you could not even give away to your friends if you still have them i would love to have them again thanks for the video it actually opened my eyes to alot that is out there now.
I wish we had Boxycharm in the 🇬🇧 UK,I subscribe to Birchbox & Glossybox but they are always different from the US ones,take a look at what we get in them in the UK xx
I hate Ipsy - in 6 months of subscription, I had so much anticipation and every single thing was worthless in it. One (last one) had hair oil - which I liked and purchased right away. I never liked one bag, NEVER. ONCE.
New sub here, great video. I agree with you on Birchbox. Everything is so small. It's just not worth it. I have a small channel and I would love for you to check it out and Subscribe. Thank you so much!
I had Birchbox in the past and was always disappointed. Deluxe sample sizes of products and colors I would never wear. I eventually canceled until I heard of boxy charm. I haven’t been disappointed yet!! I absolutely love boxy charm. I like getting 5 full size products and brushes. They are part of my makeup routine. Love the OFRA lipsticks included in nude colors. 💋
I had the worst customer service with Allure also!! I felt the 'fire in my soul' I will not be renewing with them again either because of it. I also did not receive anything that good from them this last year. It was a lot like what you described from Birchbox. Thank for giving your review of all of the boxes.. it made my choice for this year's beauty box (my birthday gift from my wonderful husband) much easier. ❤️❤️
Thank you for the video! I have to say, it's been the opposite for me. Ipsy is my LEAST fave due to repeat items and my profile being completely ignored. My fave is Sephora Play and Glossy Box. Thanks for your video!
I have to agree with you about shopping in the Birchbox store!!!! I did, however, discover something GREAT for my hair from Birchbox, from the brand The Beauty Protector OH MY GOSH!!!! It was a leave in conditioner and WOW!!! I purchased a bigger bottle off the Birchbox site. I'm in LOVE with that product!!! 💯💯💯💯💯💯💯
I was subscribed to GlossyBox for years. I cancelled but I'm thinking about signing up again. I will NEVER cancel BoxyCharm it's my #1 fav!!!
I haven't tried Sephora Play but I think I'm bout to!!! I cancelled Birchbox. After my last box I wasn't too happy with the past 2 I got back in the Winter so I cancelled. I may sign back up for Ipsy. Maybe. I'm definitely signing up for the box from Dermstore and Rickys Cult Crushes YASSSSSSSSS!!!!!
Sephora sucks anymore and so does Ipsy. I have canceled both and Love! love!! LOVE.....BoxyCharm!!! I also just got a subscription of Allure to see how it goes also Macy’s and glossy box I’m going to check into. But yeah I got tired of the sample sizes of Sephora and Ipsy oh yeah and Birtchbox they also send nothing but samples. These 3 I do know is def don’t get nothing worth near the ten bucks. If your looking for an awesome sub box you def need to check into BoxyCharm you get full-size prod and pallets and bigger is always better!!
I personally really dislike ipsy because its all tiny sample sizes that you can get for free often times.
I personally really like boxycharm because its all full sized products. I also personally found the products pretty high quality. Im also not a fan of bella pierre because its one of those dumb mall kiosk brands. I do know that Pur is a legit brand they sell it at local drugstores in with the higher end makeup brands.
I also think that just because its a dupe doesnt mean its bad though. There are lots of high quality pigmented dupe eyeshadow palettes out there for a 1/3 of the price.
Having said that, like with any box, i do find boxycharm a bit hit or miss. I dont use all the products and sometimes i find the shades not quite suitable for my skin tone(strawberry blonde hair with fair skin so a black or dark brown eye brow pencil is a no go). Anything i dont want i either give to my mom or mail out to my sister(my sister has tanned skin and darker hair so darker stuff goes to her). So i still find boxycharm a good value even if i may not be using everything, someone in my family will be.
I tried lipmonthly (Canadian) and it wasnt bad but i ended up cancelling. I also tried julep but i found the quality wasnt that great so cancelled that as well. Currently im only subscribed to boxycharm.
Not trying to be mean here but... there is no need for all that. People like you are part of the reason WHY our planet is so cluttered in trash... just think about all those packages, wraps and plastic that will eventually be laying out somewhere polluting earth, and harming animals. In turn all this trash will start hurting US too! People will laugh, but it’s the truth we all love to stay ignorant about.
"people like you" type of finger-pointing doesn't help. If you really want to fight the waste issue, level up past the consumer and target corporate America, aka the one creating the waste in the first place
Monique Montoya you're right, but they are hit or miss. I've actually come to LOVE some of their products - I think they did a disservice to themselves a couple years ago by sending their low-rated products out in sub boxes (and a couple terrible "mystery boxes" - look up unboxings to see what I mean). It makes your company look better to send out the good items.
They've figured it out more recently (love the May Boxycharm palette!)
Last time I got a birchbox was month of March I believe or April this year and the small sample sizes I stopped all for that reason. And same with allure bad breakup for me as well at first I was happy with the boxes then I didn't receive one in 1 to 3 months and see they had charged me 60 dollars for idk what reason and I was like traumatized to try any boxes for that reason but I changed heart after about 6 months =)
Anyone know if you have allergic reactions to certain products in the boxes, do they (any company) replace it with something different or are you just stuck with the product? This video is really helpful.
I have had really good luck but I have noticed that people who have trouble with purchasing/customer service get AMAZING results if they complain in a fb ad. LOL. I mean - a girl's gotta do I guess. ;)
AliceintheRabbitHole Excellent idea, thanks so much! I just hit the subscribe button because I liked your video, you actually responded to me which is something most people won’t do and you’re friendly.
Ipsy is my first love but I was sick of getting sample sizes/bags (mostly bags cuz holy moly I had no use for 20+ bags) so I switched to boxycharm. I understand why you didn’t like boxycharm in the past but I feel like they have stepped up their game. It was a interesting video to watch through. 😊
The only beauty subscription box that I’m with is boxycharm. I cancelled ipsy I’m not paying for samples. And w boxycharm we got colourpop pallets brush sets Dr. Brandt , Becca , PUR has amazing palettes we’ve gotten. Color FX, Ofra, bare minerals, pretty voguer there stuff that they send is amazing stuff full size products not almost expired either! U can like what u like but that was harsh to say they send dupes when they do send very pricey products I don’t think Becca is a dupe or dr. Brandt or ofra or colourpop! That was a harsh n broad statement to make not just about boxycharm but I think that was a disrespectful statement to make about a lot of brands that come in that box!! Ur not insulting just boxycharm but ur insulting ofra bare minerals,Becca,colourpop,PUR, Dr.Brandt ext..
AliceintheRabbitHole that’s crazy I’m shocked that happened at all let alone multiple times!!! I hope someone’s saw this and than delt with that hopefully they report it so they have better customer service that’s so important with these things
I had ipsy and lipmonthly. I stopped ipsy because they would send allot of hot pink lipsticks almost the majority of the time. Lip monthly is ok too but I'm keeping them too. I subscribed to leny box and first month was amazing you get 5 full sized products.

Me voy de dogging con mi mujer. Esta loca por inflarse a pollas. Se llama Sugar Bitch, ¿Adivinas por qué?
Que pasa chicos de FAKings, mi novia se llama Sugar Bitch y pronto al ver el vídeo adivinareis por que. El caso es que a mi preciosa chica le encantan las pollas , cuantas mas mejor, y yo que presumo de ser un cornudo consentido , siempre me vuelvo loco y me pierdo por complacerla . No nos engañemos, creo que me pone mas a mi el ver como la follan que a ella disfrutar con rabos ajenos. Sea como sea, nuestros escarceos por locales liberales y sitios donde acostumbran a ir parejas a follar y chicos a pajearse mientras las ven, es habitual . Para grabar este vídeo nos hemos ido al rio en una zona en Sevilla donde acostumbra a pasar lo que os he comentado. Las parejas hacen dogging, las chicas a solas hacen cruising y los cornudos como yo, llamamos a todos los que están mirando para invitar a follar con nuestra zorrilla . Hemos tenido bastante suerte ya que hasta tres chicos han terminado follando con ella y los tres se han corrido en su cuerpo, eso a ella le encanta, a la muy zorra le gusta que su cuerpo huela a semen . Yo ya os lo he dicho, como loco por complacerla. A ver si os gusta el vídeo y lo publicáis, prometemos enviar mas.
