Boxy Charm : May 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.

And we have come up on another great box this month!

This months theme is Boxy Bash to celebrate Boxy Charms birthday!

Now for the goods!

PUR The Complexion Authority; Sculptor Highlight and Contour Palette     Retail Price $30

Boxy Charm partners with PUR quite often and every palette and product I get is always amazing! I really love that this month we got a sculpting palette! I always want to try different bronzing and contouring powders but I’m afraid they will be too dark for me. That being said this palette looks really really dark but when you apply with a light hand it really comes off beautifully on the skin! The highlights in this palette are also stunning! I was slightly worried again that the more rosegold shade would be too dark for my skin tone but I was pleasantly surprised with how beautiful and blinding these highlights come off! The other nice thing is that all of these colors are buildable which I couldn’t appreciate more! The formula is smooth and buttery and I really really love this palette! It’ll be super nice for traveling!

I’m still testing out this primer but the first time I used it I really liked it! It applied really nicely and my foundation layered on top really nice as well. It even did looked nice over my nose which can be a problem area for me when the weather gets warm out. The only down side that I have had with this primer is that by the end of the day my face was pretty greasy. I went to take some lip swatch photo’s and decided against it because of how oily my face was. But I am going to keep testing this out before I make a final thought on this primer!

Aesthetica; Pro Brush Series, 3-Piece Eyeliner, Brow and Spoolie brush set  Retail Price $45 and Pro Brush Series Professional Powder Makeup Brush #P12  Retail Price $27

I will always be so incredibly happy to have brushes in any of my subscriptions! These are amazing quality and super nice! They also pair nicely with the other products we received in this months box! The face brush is really soft and though it picks up a lot of product when you dip it in it also blends out the product beautifully! The eye brush set is so needed as I have needed a stand along spoolie for some time because for some reason I don’t have just a spoolie on it’s own so I absolutely love that part of the set. The angle brow brush I don’t see my self using as much because it is really thick and I prefer brow pencils rather than applying powder. The liner brush is also very neat and precise and goes perfectly with the next product we received in out box.

Pretty Vulgar; The Ink Gel Eyeliner; Shade- Black                                     Retail Price $24

Can we just have a moment for this packaging! I mean come on isn’t this just adorable! It’s like a little ink pot and it has embossed feather pen details on each side of the logo. I absolutely love the adorable packaging that Pretty Vulgar comes up with! It’s just so unique and creative! Now for this eyeliner…I think it speaks for itself when you look at the swatch on my hand! I mean look at that! PIGMENTED! Now I’m not normally a gel eyeliner wearer so this is definitely putting me out of my comfort zone but it’s a push I’m loving! I wore this yesterday just in a simple small line and I was so impressed with not only how long it stayed on my eye but how great it looked all day! I will be trying to include this into my looks more and more!

Beauty Creations; Long Wear Matte Lip Gloss; Shade- Sweet Heart         Retail Price $10

This was a collaboration with Beauty Creations and Boxy Charm. It’s a beautiful shade and one of my favorite types of pink! When I opened up this container to swatch this lip color it felt very familiar to another lipstick I had received from a subscription but I was sure it was a different brand. Sure enough I went and took a look and found that this lipstick formula, packaging, and scent are all the exact same as the Bella Pierre lipsticks I have gotten before. I think one of these companies probably does some sort of private labeling. However this lipstick is really nice! The only downside to this formula is that when it dries down it gets extremely tacky! I mean lips sticking together tacky! I find these work best with an actual gloss over the top. I will also say that the scent on these lipsticks is very prominent with a artificial candy smell to it. For me it’s not super bothersome but I can see where it could be a turn off for others. All in all though this is a nice size liquid lip stick for only $10.

 

So that concludes this months Boxy Charm and we have come to a grand total of…..

$174.00

As you can see this is total worth the money! This is one of my favorite subscriptions and I just love it more and more each month! It allows the ability to try out different make up that I might not normally have the money or option to try out! I can’t wait to see what next month holds!

 

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