Boxycharm (replacing Glam Bag Plus) April 2023 Unboxing + All April Products, a Boost Sneak Peek & May Spoilers!

Wednesday, April 19, 2023

I received a complimentary Boxycharm from IPSY. All opinions are my own. This post may contain some affiliate links. 

Hey, it's time for the Boxycharm unboxing for April 2023 (aka, Ipsy Glam Bag Plus) and this month's theme is Anything Is Possible! I'll tell you about the new ✨Boxycharm✨, all of the products that could come in this month's box, what I got in mine, a sneak peek of a Beauty Boost, and SPOILERS for the May box! Let's get unboxing!

About Boxycharm

If you haven't heard yet, Ipsy bought Boxycharm and the two beauty boxes have now merged. Here's what you need to know...

  • Ipsy Glam Bag is still Ipsy Glam Bag: If you were subscribed to Ipsy's Glam Bag, you will still receive the same Glam Bag with 5 deluxe beauty samples in an Ipsy bag for $13/month.
  • Boxycharm is still Boxycharm: If you were subscribed to Boxycharm, you will still receive your 5 full-sized items for $28/month, but you'll be able to choose 3 of your products now instead of just 1 every month.
  • Glam Bag Plus is now Boxycharm: If you were subscribed to Glam Bag Plus, you will now receive it as a Boxycharm with the same number of items for the same price, but no drawstring bag and a bigger monthly value.
  • Power Picks: Every month there will be *superstar products* from beauty's most coveted brands (at least 2 for each Boxy) that will make your entire subscription worth every penny. They're putting the value of the drawstring bag back into higher-value products every month. The total value of your box is now up to $200!
  • Boxycharm Premium is now Beauty Boost: You can add a Beauty Boost to your Boxycharm subscription for an extra $15 per month and you will get first dibs on a premium bonus full-size product (with a guaranteed savings of 60%) that will ship with your box. I was sent one of the new Beauty Boost products and it. is. good.
  • Glam Bag X & Boxycharm Luxe are now Icon Box: Icon Box will replace Glam Bag X/Boxycharm Luxe every quarter. You will get 8 products worth up to $350 for $58 every 3 months. (FYI, May's Icon Box will be curated by Anastasia Soare, founder of Anastasia Beverly Hills!)
  • Mega Drop Shop: New quarterly sales where you can snag deals at up to 80% off.

All Possible April 2023 Products

I like to be able to share everything that could possibly come in your box. Like most beauty boxes, you will complete quizzes and compile a profile for yourself when you join. That will determine the items that come in your box and not all boxes will look like mine. 

This is everything that could come in a Boxycharm this month.

Beauty Boost Sneak Peek

I received a sneak peek of one of the new Beauty Boosts and it was the Too Faced Better Than Chocolate Eyeshadow Palette ($54). If you like higher-end beauty, the Boost is a steal!

Boxycharm April 2023 Unboxing

"This resurfacing exfoliator enriched with Yuzu, Vitamin C, and Glycolic Acid not only resurfaces skin, but also boosts the production of collagen and firms skin for a youthful and glowy complexion."

I'm a big fan of Purlisse and I quite like this exfoliator. It has physical and chemical exfoliators and smells yummy, too.

"Ciaté London x Smiley Lip Mask doubles up as a two-in-one nourishing overnight mask and an everyday balm. This hard-working mask will give your lips some TLC while you sleep, or a hit of hydration throughout the day."

I am a devout user of lip masks before bed so I run through them. I'm always happy to get a new one to try!

"For that high-shine, dewy look. Melts into your skin rather than sitting on top. Enough play time to get it just right, then stays put to keep that glow in place. Packed with avocado, camellia, sunflower, and rosa canina oils to lock in moisture and prevent skin dehydration."

Argh! I meant to get a photo of the shade since nothing on the package indicated what shade is inside (Metta is a golden shimmer). Here's a pic from the brand:

The formula sounds nice. As my skin gets drier I'm moving away from powdery highlights so I'll be giving this one a try.

"O-Bloos (the O stands for omegas) gives skin that flattering “nobody knows why you’re flushed” flush. The foolproof, watercolor-light formula is buildable and flatters most skin, and it’s delivered in concentrated drops that can be mixed into your other Drunk Elephant products."

So...skincare blush drops? Cool. I tend to go bare-skinned in the summer (never forget the SPF, kids!) and sometimes use my favorite Au Naturale Anywhere Multistick for some all-over color. I will absolutely be trying this out this summer!

5. NATASHA DENONA Alloy Eyeshadow Palette ($48)

"The best summer accessory? This exclusive eyeshadow palette that was hand-picked by Natasha to give off a suntanned, summer-inspired vibe. This blend of five warm- and cool-toned browns in matte and metallic finishes is all you need for your glowy summer glam."

I did miss this about Boxycharm: all of those gorgeous, exclusive Natasha Denona eyeshadow palettes! So happy to get this palette with those pretty shimmers in time for the warmer months.

That was the April Boxycharm by Ipsy. They hit it out of the park! I got some great skincare and high-end makeup that is all curated for warmer weather. It's a full, easy spring look for eyes, cheeks, and lips. Just add some sunscreen and mascara and you're good to go. Love my first Boxycharm by Ipsy!

My bag had a $168 value. You can't beat it for just $28 a month!


So far we know these products will be included in the Boxycharm collection for May 2023.

If you'd like to sign up for Boxycharm for just $28/month, you can get it here!
