Boxy Charm : December 2018

Yes, I realized I am very much behind but I spent a lot of time with my family for the holiday’s and I don’t regret any bit of it!

Now back to your regularly scheduled programing.

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.

Recently Boxy Charm started a new quarterly upgraded box called Boxy Luxe where you pay an extra $28.99 and get a bigger box with up to 10 items with a value of $300 or more! This is the second Boxy Luxe box and they surely did not disappoint.

Lets dive right in!

Violet Voss- Pro HG Palette                                                                             Retail Price $45

This was not only the first sneak peak for the box but the item I was the most excited for! I have always wanted another Violet Voss palette but I hadn’t wanted to pay for it so to get it in the box was the best! As you can see this is an everyday eye-shadow lovers dream! This has everything to make warm tone looks, cool tone looks and a everything in between for the neutral everyday! This palette has a tone of pro’s including blend-ability, pigmentation and color selection. The only con I have come across is the amount of fall out that I get from the matte shades. Other than that I love how many different looks I can create with this palette.

Suva Beauty- Protégé Palette                                                                         Retail Price $34

A neat feature they added this month was the option to customize one of our items for the Boxy Luxe box. We had the option between a palette or a mini straightener. I have straight hair so no need for the straightener and opted for the palette. I loved all of these shades because they are all shades I use consistently in many of my everyday looks.  I also am really excited that this has two large pan highlight shimmer shades. I use these as lid shades and they look amazing. This is a great palette to travel with for me when I’m just going to be gone for the weekend and need something simple to create any type of look.

Luxie Brushes- Rose Gold Complete Face Brush Set              Retail Price $65

BRUSHES!!! Yes more brushes! I love these amazing sets of brushes! This is really nice too because it comes with a nice little stand that keeps the brushes all together nice and neatly standing. Luxie brushes are awesome and I absolutely love them! You all know brushes are some of my very favorite things to get in my boxes!

Spongelle- Body Wash Infused Buffer                                                          Retail Price $20

I was super intrigued by this! I haven’t had a chance to use this but it’s so interesting! It’s an infused sponge that when wet will suds up. I keep forgetting to put this into the shower to use but I’m planning on using it this weekend!

Crimes of Beauty – Wristlet w/ Portable Charger                                               Retail Price $22

I love this adorable little clutch! It’s a nice quality and a decent size! I was a little worried when this was counted as one of our items because the bag we got last time didn’t count and was much cheaper and less quality but this is really nice! And to top it off we got an portable charger which I can always use!

Grande Cosmetics- Grande Mascara                                                               Retail Price $25

I swear I haven’t purchased mascara in I don’t know how long because of my awesome subscriptions and this one is really nice! I think the packaging is really clean and sleek and it has a brush I actually really like! Not one of those dang rubbery/plastic spikey ones! The only thing about this one is the formula is thinner than I’m used to but I think it has to do with the “lash boosting formula”. This won’t be replacing some of my favorites like my L’Oreal Lash Paradise but it’s been a nice back up.

Elemis- Pro Collagen Marine Cream                                                          Retail Price $89

Getting expensive skin care in subscription boxes are my favorite! I get to try new things without having to fork over the cash myself! This cream is incredible! I absolutely love how my skin feels every morning when I use it and I notice my makeup really sits nicely over the top of this. The only thing I don’t really like about this is the jar! It is impossible to get the little cover between the lid and the jar off with or without nails and when I finally get the little cover off it goes flying and ends up with landing where I don’t want it and getting anything loose (dust, hair, particles) on it! I really wish nice creams like these came in better containers!img_3254Pretty Vulgar- The Powder Room Translucent Setting Powder in “Matte About It”       Retail Price $32

I didn’t realize I was getting this product in the box for the month but I was really excited for it! Pretty Vulgar has some of the most adorable packaging which I absolutely love!!! The powder it self is really nice! I do notice that my face stay’s matte most of the day and the powder doesn’t add too much color to on top of my foundation or concealer. I don’t think it’s worth the money if I were to buy it on my own outside of this considering that my Coty Airspun (my holy grail powder) is only $5. A beautiful and nice powder but not wouldn’t repurchase.

Tarte- Glitter Lip Paint                                                                                      Retail Price $20

Tarte lip products are so nice! I really enjoy the amazing quality! This gloss is really nice that even though there is glitter through out the entire gloss you don’t feel any grit when applying it or throughout wearing it. I really like this softer shade because I can add it to the top of just about any lip stick and it goes well with it! The thing I don’t like about this is the fact that I have to dip back into the tube multiple times to get enough product to cover my lips. The formula is thicker but not sticky so that is another bonus point for the lip paint.

That concludes my Boxy Luxe for the month of December! Can I just say I’m so glad I was able to sign up and get in on the upgraded box! It’s been well worth the money and I have enjoyed almost everything I have gotten so far. Rumor has it March is going to be even better!

The value of my box this month was :      $352

And in total the box cost just around $50, totally worth it! If you haven’t subscribed yet I would consider checking out the next couple months and considering upgrading to the Boxy Luxe for March!

Let me know if you got a different variation of the Boxy Luxe than I did down below in the comments!

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