Boxy Charm : February 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.

This month’s theme was Galaxy Glow!

Crown Brushes; WH100 Pro Brush Trio     Retail Price $29.99

I always enjoy getting brushes in my subscriptions! It helps to build my collection without having to fork over all of the cash upfront! These three are an awesome trio making it easy to complete any look. This comes with two face brushes and a shading eye brush. All of the brushes are very soft and apply products beautifully. These are very well made and what ergonomic shape of the brush handle makes them comfortable to hold (as weird as that sounds) with a easier sturdier grip on them. I have been using the largest brush to apply my bronzer and I am in love with how it blends everything out so that I don’t have a harsh line of product on my face. The medium size brush I have been using to apply powder under my eyes to set my concealer. It’s just the right size to fit under my eye and doesn’t cause any cakeiness or streakiness. The eye shader brush works as designed and is great for packing on color. These will be getting a lot of use!

Vintage by Jessica Liebeskind; Smokey Eye Pencil; Shade- Jet Black    Retail Price $21

The packaging on this is super cute and very classy with just a simple black on white decal with a rose and the brand name. I really think it’s sleek and unique. The pencil itself is a very creamy formula and is very smooth to apply. I personally don’t like black pencil liners because I don’t use them. I try to always try them out when I receive them in my subscriptions so that I can write up this review but I don’t use them in a normal day to day or even on special occasions. I just find it to be too much for my eyes and I haven’t been much of a black eyeliner wearer anyway. I prefer colored just for a fun pop to any look.

Ofra Cosmetics; Pressed Blush; Shade- Winter Rose Glow                     Retail Price $15

Ofra Cosmetics; Pop Up Palette                                                                     Retail Price $21

So I thought this was pretty cool! We got a magnetic palette along with the blush from Ofra this month. I like having the magnetic palettes because it makes it easier to travel with look powders and shadows when needed and it make it easier to pick and choose which. (P.S. After doing some further digging this palette is set up to be able to stand up!!!!)  Now for the blush! I normally don’t gravitate toward darker colors like this one but I was pleasantly surprised how much I enjoy the blush and how smoothly it applies. I have been using this almost every day since I got it and I really like it! Normally I am a peachy kind of person but I am enjoying this shade! It’s for sure a good color for fall and winter and I think I will use it most during those times and possibly just ever so lightly in the summer!

Pur Cosmetics; X-Faux Lips Plumping Lip Exfoliator                         Retail Price $17

This is super cool! I love lip exfoliator because I wear lipstick almost every day it’s nice to a couple times a week go in and do some rehab on my lips. This one is super nice too! It’s not too abrasive like some scrubs can be on the lips. The other nice thing about this is that it’s got shea butter in it so once it has been on the lips for a min it has a moisturizing quality. I applied this from the tube then rubbed it around on my lips for a few seconds. I also really love the vanilla sent/flavor to this! It’s very subtle and works great to help rejuvenate dry and crusty lips!

Cover FX; Shimmer Veil; Shade- Amethyst                                                Retail Price $28

And I have saved the best for last! The pictures really don’t due this product justice! This Shimmer Veil is super cool because it can be used on your eyes, lips and cheeks! I have used it on both my eyes and lips and it’s absolutely stunning! Not only does it leave an amazing shimmer and shine to anywhere you put it the color flip is stunning!! When I went to look up this product the other shades available are stunning as well and I honestly am considering purchasing another shade that’s more warm tone or has some gold’s and pinks in it as that’s more of what I wear. Even though these are expensive the pay off is amazing and totally worth every dollar!! The other great thing about this product is that it applies very opaque and doesn’t crease! I repeat- does not crease!! I wore this all day at work and when I got home it still looked as great as it did when applied. This is a stunning win to get in this months box! And  I totally forgot but Cover FX offered a 20% off coupon in this box as well!! So I might be placing an order soon to get those other shades!

 

So total for this months box was…

$131.99

I mean wow!! I am so impressed with Boxy Charm each month and I am really glad I have this subscription! It has led me to some amazing products I don’t think I other wise would have come across or even tried on my own given the price point of some of these! I seriously highly recommend this box if you don’t already have it!!

 

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