April 2018 Boxycharm: Eye Candy!

It is that time of the month again… Boxycharm Unboxing day!!!! This months theme is Eye Candy and boy oh boy was this a great box! So let’s dive on in!IMG_5005

This month I got the Element Of Surprise eyeshadow palette by Colourpop retailing for 16$. The colors are so gorgeous in this palette. I love the shimmers and the bold, bright pink is the perfect pop of color that you don’t find in a ton of palettes.IMG_5010

Next I received a MAC cosmetics Liptensity Lipstick in the shade Burnt Violet- 21$. I have to say even though I really wanted this lipstick over the liquid highlighter which was another option that was sent, I don’t think it goes with the theme very well. It doesn’t look like a color for spring or look candy-ish. I still love it though!IMG_5011

Up next I received the Pores no more Vacuum Cleaner by Dr. Brandt- 47$. I love Dr. Brandt products, they always work so well and leave my skin feeling so soft and super clean!IMG_5012

Next out of the box comes The BrowGal – The Instatint: tinted eyebrow gel 22$. This particular eyebrow gel contains little hairs which not only help to tint your eyebrows but also fill them in as well.IMG_5014

Lastly I got two eyeshadow brushes by SL Miss Glam 38.50$. They are so soft and look super cute with the jewel detail. The duo comes with a blender brush and a brush perfect for packing on color. IMG_5013That’s it for this month! I already can’t wait for next months box!

March Boxy Charm!!

You have to know by now that this is my favorite day of the month. I mean, makeup has been delivered to my door!!! This months box was good and I’m so excited about it. From the sneak peeks I saw I couldn’t wait to get my fingers on the goodies.IMG_4243

So let’s jump in to the Bae-cation boxy charm box.

Let’s start out with the most exciting item which is the Pur cosmetics X Boxycharm eyeshadow palette. It is drop dead gorgeous. The peaches, the mattes, the shimmers, and my favorite summer color- a bright pop of blue. Retails 36$ and you can find it at Ulta or Purcosmetics.com. The colors are stunning and blend like a dream with major color payoff!                                        IMG_4250

Next a Mascara from Bellapierre Cosmetics. MSRP: 20$ This guy promises long lasting, volumizing mascara formulated to help create thicker and fuller lashes. After testing this one, it was a super disappointment. Not a huge deal since I wear false lashes but for the days I don’t… I will not be reaching for this at all.                                         IMG_4249

South Mane Beauty gave us Under Eye Gels for 10$ These make for a great easy mask without the clean up. They soften and moisturize to ensure that you look rested and refreshed.                                                                                              IMG_4246

The Vintage Cosmetic Company gave us a Smokey Eye Makeup Brush Set retailing at 23.15$ This brush set trio will enable you to create a stunning smokey eye. The brushes are so soft and who doesn’t love getting new brushes?? I know I’m a total addict. After testing these guys out I do like them for packing on color but probably won’t be my number one go to brushes. Still very nice tho! IMG_4248

I was so excited to get this Blush from Pretty Vulgar. I adore their packaging with the vintage look. I know Boxycharm sent out two shades and even though I didn’t get the shade I was hoping for, the one I got is still really pretty. The blush runs for 26$ The color I received was called Prim Vixen and it is so insanely bright.. Must go in with the lightest of hand.                                                                     IMG_4247

If you added that up, that is just over 115$ worth of product for only 21$!!!! I love this box so much!!! Definitely sign up while there is no waitlist!

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!
