There is a beauty quiz you can take similar to Ipsy to go over your skin tone, skin type, hair color, eye color, so on and so forth.

So lets get into this months box!

The Theme for this month’s box!

BellaPierre; Pro Concealer Palette; Color Correction                              Retail Price $29.99

When I first ready the outside packaging of this product I thought it was going to be skin tone colors with maybe a contour shade, but to my surprise it’s color correction! I have always wanted to try out some color correcting products but never wanted to spend the money on them just because I was unsure if I would continue to use them. And I have to say I’m really liking using this! I don’t use it every day but when I have used it I the products is smooth and creamy and blends nicely on the skin. I find myself using the green and the orange more than the purple. For those who don’t know each color combats something different-orange combats blues and dark tones (dark circles), green combats redness ( I apply around my nose) and purple is to help with dull skin offering brightness ( I use on my cheeks). There is also a lot of product in this compact so a little goes along way.

I normally would never spend that much on a mascara so I was really excited to see this come in the boxy this month. At first when I opened this up and looked at the wand I didn’t think I would  like this because it has the rubbery, spiky kind of wand that I always seem to manage to poke my eye with, but I wanted to give this a try because I have heard some good things about it. I will say one morning I did manage to poke myself in the eye (surprise, surprise) but I actually really enjoy this mascara! It makes me lashes not only look long but it also adds some fullness! I have been wearing this almost every day for the last week or so and I have enjoyed it a lot! The only down side I have found with this one is that it can start to flake as the day goes on. I made the mistake of scratching around my eye on day and I ended up with black specks all over my under eye.

Real Her; Blush Kit                                                                                Retail Price $ 32

I have heard great things about the Real Her brand and what it stands for! And I was super excited to get one of their products in this months box! This brand it all about empowering girls to be unique and individual and to ‘Be Fearless, Be Limitless’. This blush palette is beautiful and very pigmented! A little on the brush goes a long way! I really like this too because I have a very fair complexion and the warm bronzy blush works great as a bronzer for me in the winter months. I have been using this palette for about a week now and I am loving it! This will be nice for travel as well.

Crown Brush; WH035 Pro Blush Brush

Retail Price $12

Getting new brushes in subscriptions always excites me! I have heard of Crown Brush before but can’t say that I have received anything from them before so I was very excited to see this as part of the box! This brush is very luxe! The handle has and ergonomic shape to help with holding. I also really like the white sleek handle. It’s very different from other brushes I have so it stands out in my collection. I also really love how soft and how densely packed the bristles are on this brush. I don’t know that I would use it for blush considering how dense it is but I think this would work very nicely with cream products.

Pretty Vulgar; My Lips Are Sealed Lightweight Liquid Lipstick; Shade- Nude                Retail Price $24

First of all how adorable is this packaging?! I mean the white lip with roses and the rose gold! It’s just stunning! These liquid lips feel almost like a mousse kind of texture which is nice because its very light and airy. I’m not the biggest fan of it being totally metallic just because as much as I thought I would love metallic lips it’s really not my favorite. The other thing about this liquid lip is that it doesn’t totally dry down. I don’t mind that because I don’t wear this by itself ever but that can be a deterrent for others. I personally like to put this on top of other colors as a metallic top coat. I find it looks great for right in the center of the lips for a nice pop.

 

That concludes my Boxy Charm for December! Total for the box is $120.99!!! Still probably the best choice I have made recently was to subscribe to this awesome box!

 

Thank you for stopping by and keep an eye for what might be up around the curve!

  1. Love the Tarte mascara, but yes, the flakes and transfer are a big downside. Other than that, my eyelashes look amazing! I’ve been using it every day! The brush is awesome, too! Been using it to apply foundation. December’s box was amazing! Glad you are enjoying Boxycharm. It’s my favorite subscription box! Great post! 🙂
