January Boxy Charm

Hello friends!

This months boxy charm was a huge improvement over last month. Hopefully the continue to improve and go back to being amazing like they were a few months ago. This months theme was ROCK 2018. Everything in the box was very shimmering and shiny.

So let’s dive into this box!!IMG_3906

First product was the Dr. Brandt pores no more luminizer primer. Retail 38$ This primer delivers a natural radiant glow while blurring pores and imperfections for a beautifully illuminated flawless complexion. —It worked so well!! I love this primer, even to wear alone.

IT Cosmetics brow power MSRP: 24$ This brow pencil is amazing and contains so many amazing ingredients including green tea, vitamins, and antioxidants. This pencil is bomb!!

Crown Pro Glam Metals Palette. retail 25$ This palette is super blendable and very pretty in metallic colors but with no mattes I don’t feel like I can make a complete look.IMG_4043

PUR Bronze and Brighten cheek palette. MSRP: 34$ It claims to be an on the go highlight, bronzer, and blush palette but all the shades have a bit too much shimmer for me. Especially the bronzer, if it was a little less shimmery the palette would be perfect. I will probably end up using the bronzer as eyeshadow.

Grande Cosmetics Grandelips Hydrating Lip Plumper. Retail 27$. Infused with valulip and hyaluronic acid, instantly improves lip volume within 3-5 minutes while hydrating. Results may vary is correct… this was just a lip gloss on me. Sad because I was hoping for some super plump lips!!

Till next time my loves!

December Boxy Charm

I know my post for December’s boxy charm is up super late but since I was out of town I received my box late. I have to be honest I was incredibly underwhelmed by this box. I really wasn’t even excited to try it out, which is super sad because normally I am beyond pumped about the box. So let’s jump in.IMG_3799

In the box I received a blush kit by Real Her that is retailed at $32. All 3 blushes were shimmery so I felt that this item may be better for spring or summer but I don’t think I will reach for it much at all. The middle shade is really pretty but the other two are not my style…IMG_3802

Next up I got a Pro Concealer Palette by Bellapierre, retailing for $30. Now this looks like a nice palette with really big pans for anyone who uses color correcting concealers. I personally don’t… So again this was a bust for me but that is totally personal. My mom received a bronzer in her boxy charm box, which I am totally jealous of!

Next is a My Lips Are Sealed Lightweight Liquid Lipstick by Pretty Vulgar, retails for $24. This product was a love hate for me because I was totally stoked about receiving something by Pretty Vulgar and I can’t wait to try more of their products but I just do not like metallic liquid lipsticks. I don’t think they look good on me and so this will just not be used unfortunately. I will probably put it in a give away, ( I did not even open this because I tried my moms)

I believe all boxy charmers received the Tarteist Lash Paint Mascara by Tarte retailing for $23. This mascara is really great and I am happy to have at least one product that will be used in my box this month! This guy really added lots of volume but won’t be replacing my l’oreal mascara or fake lashes.

Lastly I got a Deluxe Blush Brush from Crown Brush, retails for $12. The brush has really soft, synthetic bristles which is nice when you want to use cream or powder products. It is pretty dense so you want to be very light handed so that you don’t get too much product.

Did you receive the december boxy charm? What did you think? If you don’t receive boxy charm you should. Normally I love my entire box and at only 21$ a month it is an incredible deal!!

August BoxyCharm Thoughts

I was so excited to receive my first BoxyCharm box!! I debated on whether or not to get it for quite some time and I am so glad I gave in and signed up! It is 21$ a month but if you sign up for more months you can get a bit of a discount. IMG_2012This months box them was Beach Please and included: a Moda Pro, 3 piece brush set from Royal and Langnickle which retails for 26$, A waterproof gel eyeliner by bellapierre which retails for 15$, Pro eyelashes by PUR cosmetics which retails for 14$, #GRLPWR liquid lipstick by the beauty crop retailing for 14.95$ and lastly the Rainforest of the sea: volume 2 by Tarte retailing for 36$.

It truly was a great box and a great deal and I’m so excited it is coming every month!! IMG_2025Here is a look I created using the box. I really like all the products, though I am not super in love with the color of the lip but it looks good in pictures haha.

I can’t wait till next month for a new boxy!
