Honest BoxyCharm Review- Is it Worth It?
Happy Monday, friends! I hope everyone had a fabulous Fourth of July holiday! We definitely enjoyed taking some time off last week to spend with our family and of course the fireworks are always my favorite. The boys left on Saturday to spend a week with their grandparents and I’m a little sad as we’ve never been apart for more than 1-2 days max. I guess I’ll just have to sleep in and enjoy it though, right? 😉
Anyways, I recently had the privilege of trying out BoxyCharm and today I’m excited to be sharing an honest BoxyCharm review and sharing all the makeup and beauty goodies in the June 2018 Caribbean Queen Box.
If you’ve never tried BoxyCharm but have always wondered whether or not it’s worth the money to subscribe, then keep reading below for my full and honest BoxyCharm review-is it worth it?

Honest BoxyCharm Review- Is It Worth It?
How It Works
For those new to the world of BoxyCharm, it is a monthly beauty subscription box sent straight to your door. Each box contains 4-5 full-size beauty products, including makeup, skincare items, beauty tools, hair and nail products, and more.
Each BoxyCharm contains products from either popular, well-known beauty brands or rising brands, and always have products that fit perfectly with current makeup and beauty trends. Past boxes have included items from brands such as MAC, Colourpop, Tarte, and IT Cosmetics just to name a few!
In terms of value, each box always contains products valued at a minimum of $100, but as you’ll see in my full review below, boxes often contain products with an even higher value.
How Much Does It Cost?
BoxyCharm offers 4 affordable subscription options including a monthly, quarterly, bi-annual, and annual subscription. Each subscription renews automatically, but you can conveniently cancel at anytime, with zero fees.
- Monthly- $21/month
- 3 Month Subscription- $19.66/month
- 6 Month Subscription- $19.33/month
- 12 Month Subscription- $19.25/month –Best Value with 12 Boxes for the Price of 11!
Another great incentive for BoxyCharm subscribers is their Charm Rewards loyalty program. Currently charms can be earned through referrals and through reviewing the BoxyCharm boxes on their website. Each charm earned is worth $1 and can be used to redeem amazing makeup and beauty products.
Charmers also receive exclusive discounts on beauty brands with every box and gain access to an amazing social media community of makeup and beauty lovers.
Is It Worth It?
All in all when you compare how much BoxyCharm costs ($19/month) versus the price of the items you receive ($100+) the value is truly unbeatable. With BoxyCharm you are receiving high-quality beauty items for less than or around $5 each and you get to try out items from both new and popular brands.
To me, it’s definitely worth subscribing, but keep reading below to see the exact products that came in last month’s box and my full thoughts!
Honest BoxyCharm Review- June 2018 Caribbean Queen
First off, as someone who has never tried out any beauty subscription boxes, I must say I was super impressed with the contents in the June 2018 BoxyCharm. I’ll be the first to admit I’ve always been somewhat skeptical of monthly subscription boxes because you might get a box full of items you hate and will never use, but leave it to BoxyCharm to completely change my mind.
Not only did I love every single item I received in last month’s BoxyCharm but when comparing the amount of money I would have spent buying each item individually versus the cost of the subscription box, it’s such a great deal! (And you guys know I’m all about saving money and getting the most bang for my buck!)
Plus, I truly love being able to try out products from both new and popular beauty brands that I normally might not ever pick up because of the individual price point.
For reference, this month’s Caribbean Queen box ended up containing 6 items at a total MSRP value of $134, making this box an incredible steal. It also had 6 makeup/beauty items from brands that I’ve never tried, which is awesome!
BoxyCharm June 2018 Caribbean Queen
Luxie- 3 Piece Flawless Complexion Brushes
The first items in the box were these gorgeous brushes– perfect for applying both powder and liquid foundations. The set came with a tapered highlighter brush, precision foundation brush, and a duo fibre powder brush.
I just tried this out the other day and I especially love the highlighting brush and the precision foundation brush paired with my fave IT Cosmetics CC+ Cream, gave my skin the most flawless, buffed-out finish. Plus, who doesn’t love rose gold brushes?

Alamar- Reina Del Caribe Eyeshadow Palette
Next up in the box was this stunning palette from Alamar Cosmetics. The tropical colors are so fun and I’m in love with the beautiful shimmer shadows. Although I’m unsure if eyeshadow palettes are normally included in BoxyCharms, this was such a nice treat and once again going back to the overall value, it’s amazing for what you’re paying.
Although I had heard of Alamar Cosmetics, I hadn’t yet tried out any of their palettes. I can honestly say I’m now definitely a fan and will be trying out more of their items. The pigmentation and color payoff in this palette is amazing and I can’t wait to create some gorgeous summer looks with this eyeshadow palette!
Check out the complete swatches in the photos below.
Jonteblu- Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil in Charcoal
This eyeliner pencil had a nice and creamy texture that glides easily on the undereye area, and the gray color is super versatile. This was a brand I hadn’t previously tried and I love the cute packaging.
Ofra- Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick in Verona
Another brand that I’ve been meaning to try but hadn’t yet is Ofra and I’ve always thought their lip products are so pretty. This liquid lipstick in the shade Verona is gorgeous and is a great nude shade that works well year-round.
You can find a ton of lip shades from Ofra over here at Ulta.
Sol De Janeiro- Brazilian Bum Bum Cream
Next up is the Brazilian Bum Bum Cream from Sol De Janeiro and you guys- this smells heavenly! When I shared this in an unboxing on my Instagram, so many of you messaged me telling me it was your favorite, which I love.
This is the perfect product to buy for swimsuit season to smooth and tighten and this cream really does feel great on the skin!
Battington- Monroe Silk Lashes
Last but not least are the Monroe Silk Lashes from Battington. I personally don’t wear a lot of falsies because I was fortunately blessed with long lashes, but I tried these on the other day and they’re super pretty.
These lashes are multi-layered and add a beautiful amount of volume and length without being over the top, and they’re a lot better quality than some of the drugstore lashes I’ve tried in the past.
Made with 100% silk, they can be used up to 25 times.
Final Thoughts on BoxyCharm
All in all, I would say this BoxyCharm was a total win and if you were to ask me whether or not it’s worth it, my answer is 110% YES! I think it’s great for both makeup lovers like me who love to try out products from new brands, but I also think it’s perfect for beginners who are looking for product recommendations.
Plus, again, the value really is unbeatable here, and if you really break it down and think about it- you’re getting high quality beauty products for less than what you’d pay at the drugstore. I mean how amazing is that?!
I actually just received my July box last week and will be sharing those goodies in an unboxing on my Instagram in the next couple days. This time around there’s tons of skincare goodies along with some sweet makeup products, so I’m super stoked to share them with you all! (If you’re not following me yet, you can follow along here!) 😉
That about wraps up today’s Honest BoxyCharm Review- Is It Worth It! I hope this helped any of you who were on the fence with whether or not BoxyCharm is worth it!
I highly, highly recommend it and since there’s absolutely no cancellation fees or term commitments, what’s there to lose? Sign up for BoxyCharm over here!
