Boxy Charm : January 2018

Boxy Charm is $21 a month for 4-5 full size products. The box is always guaranteed to a value of $100 or more each month. They offer a wide range of brands from emerging to well known. 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. They also offer a user friendly website to allow you to review the items in your box.

So lets get into this months box!

This months theme is ROCK 2018! And let me just say this box rocks!

Lets get into the products!

Crown Pro; Glam Metals Palette                                                           Retail Price $25

This palette is so awesome! This is something I wouldn’t buy on my own so I’m so happy to give it a try and step out of my comfort zone! These shadows are very pigmented as well which I love! It’s a mostly metallic palette with only one matte shade “Black Metal”. I don’t use black often just because I try to do more wearable looks for work. But everything else I can see myself wearing for the normal work day. These shades have a coolness to them that is nice to offset a lot of my warmer toned palettes. I can’t wait to use the rest of this on my eye’s to really get the creativity flowing!

Dr. Brandt; Pores No More Luminizer Primer                    Retail Price- $38

Holy wow! This primer is fantastic! I’m an oily skin girl and don’t normally like luminizing primers or anything with the word illuminating unless it’s a strategically placed by me! But this stuff is amazing! I never thought I would love this as much as I do. It’s got a beautiful finish on the skin that isn’t overly glowy and really blurs out my pores. This is another one of those products I normally wouldn’t buy for myself so I was very excited to see it come in out box this month! Definitely worth the splurge in the future!

 

 

 

IT Cosmetics; Brow Powder Universal Eyebrow Pencil; Shade-Taupe       Reatil Price $24

New brow products always get me excited! I don’t buy many different ones on my own because I’m not that into my brow game. I was very blessed to have a nice shape to my brows and I try very hard not to change it! This pencil is amazing! The taupe color is just about perfect for my brows! If I want a darker color I just push a little harder and if I want them to be a little lighter I just lighten up how much I color through them. The spooly is very soft on this as well and blends out the pencil very nicely. This is one of those brow products that I can see myself using regularly and continuing to use.

PUR The Complexion Authority; Broze and Brighten Cheek Palette      Retail Price $34

Firstly this palette is gorgeous! Secondly it’s amazingly pigmented and blends beautifully! I have been using this since I got it and I can’t put it down! I’m normally not a huge fan of shimmery bronzers but this one once it is applied to the skin is stunning and doesn’t have a lot of crazy shine! The same goes for the blush; slight simmer in the pan but applies beautifully and is the perfect peachy tone that I love! Now for the highlighter! As you can see in the swatch it is pigmented and this one gives you all the shine in the world! I have been loving this face palette so much and I think I will be using this a lot when I travel!

Girlactick; Matte Lip Paint; Shade-Posh                                                      Retail Price $23

Ahh yay! Another lip product! If you follow me you know I LOVE lip products! I haven’t ever tired anything from Girlactick before but I have heard that some people really love their products. I have tested this lipstick out once and I really like the formula! The shade isn’t a go to for me so I have to really stretch out my comfort zone when using this but that’s what I love about my subscriptions is that they make me branch out and try new products and shades I normally wouldn’t buy for myself! This lip stick is really nice! It goes on very thick and pigmented and doesn’t take much to cover the lips. It does take some time to totally dry down but that’s not all bad. Once it is dried down though it seems to stay put. I didn’t eat too much with it on but with drinking coffee and water it stayed in place nicely. I may have to try more of these!

 

So this wraps up my Boxy Charm for this month. It was a great box and I am loving everything that I have gotten! I can’t wait to see what more will come for 2018! This months box totaled-$144!!!

Thanks for stopping by and keep an eye out for what might be up around the curve!
