Subscription Satelite: Why I Left BoxyCharm

Hello to all of you beautiful nerds and welcome back from traveling the vast nerd universe! I am sorry for being away but I am back to talk about something you may be surprised with!

I Left BoxyCharm! Therefore!

Yes, the title says it all because I left BoxyCharm and I have not gotten it since last month.

Due to the craziness of school, I was not able to post my April BoxyCharm and well, I am announcing that I had to withdraw due to my grades were not that great this semester. I do not want to get into too much but I am eventually going to sign up for a different program that is more Assistive Technology focused which is what I want instead of going through eye issues, plus anatomy is not my strong suit either. Plus, I also noticed it kind of took me away from the blog which I am glad to get back to for now until I get back into a program, I will be happy with.

Back to BoxyCharm, as you know I did announce for a few posts I will be giving BoxyCharm a few chances before I cancelled due to how bored I was finding it was becoming. Ever since they started the choosing one item it felt it was not the same anymore. I remembered when I first joined at the end of 2014 going into 2015, they were giving out independent and a few luxury brands, even some I have heard of before kind of like with Ipsy and after being unsubscribed until around 2019 and after working for three months, I missed it. I loved getting the prestige to luxury items and how much it was a mystery, as in you did not have to choose something. Just when it started with the choices, that is when it started going downhill a bit. I noticed not only I got to choose items with skin care and some makeup, but there were also other items that I was mismatched or gave me that I did not mark on my survey. Which at first, they never done a survey for profiles until I got back to it and I thought they would match me a bit better than Ipsy, which I was wrong. There were items where they mismatched me with shades and you seen it in my posts on here like the Milk MakeUp Brow Gel, they gave me a brown that was lighter than my brows and you already know I get a brown that is around chocolate. My shade in anything NYX brow items is always going to be chocolate! Another item was the Purlisse CC Cream which they matched me with Medium when I am Light Medium and even my profile says I am Light Medium with my skin tone because of how my parents had two different skin tones and it was a mix. My mom has a light skin tone while my dad is deep tan and therefore, I am light medium which is a mix. I am Buff Bisque according to Wet N Wild’s foundations, Light Medium Neutral in Urban Decay’s Stay Naked because my undertone is neutral. Again, I was mismatched a little bit until I suggested to them if you are going to put these kinds of items, foundations, concealers, brow items, etc. you should consider having your Charmers choose their color. They took it into consideration and used it which made me happy, I even got my right shade in Dose of Colors when they gave out their concealer. What got me to leave the most is a pair of lashes they gave me.

You guys already know my thing against lashes and that they can also damage the natural lash. I am not going to re-hash it; please research it and you will see what I mean. Hell, I even yell at videos saying you do not need them. It is true, you do not! Not even magnetic lashes catch my eye. Anyways, the good thing is that with the survey they ask what products you enjoy the most and I ticked off everything EXCEPT lashes which means I do not want any! Even Ipsy gets the idea now I want different color eyeliners because I have marked that I wanted black liners sometimes and I think I put Just Okay towards the shade on one and I even chose the bronze liners now. If Ipsy saw I did not mark anything near lashes then they will not send me any which that makes me happier with Ipsy. Anyways, there was one time when they BoxyCharm sent me lashes and I emailed them and explained I did not mark lashes on my profile and not to send me them ever again and they apologized, gave me charms, and said they will not but they made me angry last month that caused me to do the unsubscribe for real. Mind you, I was also exhausted from a long day of work before I decided to set a bedtime for myself and of course school was getting harder even closer to finals and when I opened my box from BoxyCharm, I found the packaging with lashes and chewed them out in my apartment, not through email, just blowing off my major steam and even told RJ that I told them I did not want lashes. He even witnessed me unsubscribing from them at that moment. I do not know why or who put my box together but I did say in my email a while ago that I did not want lashes and they said they will not send me any lashes but they broke that promise. I was mad about it and unfortunately, they had to lose me as a customer. I even felt like that April may have been the last box since one of my products was the Glam Glow Banana Souffle cream. I did get other nice items in this box but could not take it anymore with how they disrespected my profile and gave me something that they said they will not give me anymore. I know I was being a little bit bitter but they needed to understand that what we mark on our profiles are things we like and what we do not are what we like. This is where customer satisfaction comes in when it comes to these subscriptions. Heck, that is why I also left No Make No Life because I was paying $45 a month for my box to be delayed due to how they changed their shipping, I was not happy with that and I would rather go with a different subscription. Goes the same with BoxyCharm.

I bet you are wondering; will I ever go back with BoxyCharm? I am not entirely sure at this point. I felt that if you are going to have your subscribers answer a survey, stick with that survey, and look and pay super close attention to each profile instead of skimming it or not reading them. Or at least keep record of each person who does not want a certain item. That would be handy. And I wished they did not allow the item choice because I feel like that spoils the fun now since it shows that you want to have the subscriber to be more in control. I hardly choose anything with my Glam Bag since I wanted it to be more of a surprise and I am happier that way. If you want to know something g, I almost considered going back to Allure because of the items were not too bad and they have been showing some nice items lately but I am still thinking about it in the meantime. If you know any subscriptions that may be good, just sound off in the comments.

I am waiting on my Glam Bag now, not sure when it will arrive but still waiting. So, until next time guys, stay beautiful!
