Boxy Charm Birthday Bash!

It’s boxycharm’s birthday and they are having a BoxyBash this month! I thought there would be some different items in the box this month but it is still exciting! So let’s dive into this box. IMG_5479

First up we received the CoverFX blurring primer, retailing 38$. This primer blurs the appearance of pores, fine lines, and other imperfections. IMG_5484

Next we have the Pretty Vulgar The Ink Gel Eyeliner, retailing 24$. I know I have done a review on this before and wasn’t that excited about it but knowing I was getting another pot of this liner I have been trying to use the liner more and figure out if there is ways I will love it. IMG_3811

Now we have a brush set from aesthetica cosmetics pro brush series retailing 45$. The trio comes with an angled eyeliner brush, a brow spoolie, and a fine tipped eyeliner brush. IMG_5481

We also got a sculptor contour/highlight palette by Pur Cosmetics, 30$. This is a four shade, sculpting palette that features two high-beam highlighters and two matte contour shades that will leave skin sculpted to perfection. These suckers are crazy pigmented so a teeny tiny bit will go a long way!! The contour shades are very dark, so that worries me a little bit. IMG_5485

P12 Face brush by Aesthetica, 27$. This synthetic fiber brush allows for maximum control. IMG_5480

Last up I received a Beauty Creations Liquid Lip Gloss, 10$. This matte liquid lip gloss is specifically formulated to provide full coverage that dries to a seamless, smooth, and matte finish. Lightweight and long wearing. I got the shade kiss me. IMG_5483

This month we received an extra product to celebrate BoxyCharm’s birthday! Always exciting and you know it’s my favorite time of the month!!

Till next month and next post!

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!

The Ink Gel Eyeliner- Pretty Vulgar Review

Hello friends! How was your weekend? We had a friend stay with us which I always love. I love entertaining!! Any ways, I ordered this gel liner based on recommendations from youtubers. It was raved about and I couldn’t wait to try it out. I have to say I was so disappointed with this product. My overall rating would be a 2 out of 5 stars and lets dive in to why.. IMG_3811

The packaging is stunning. I love how it looks like an old timey ink pot. The copper/gold is beautiful. Gold and black is my favorite combination. The unicarton is also beautiful. The font and script, I love everything about it. And the container makes you feel like you are getting a lot of product.

Next this liner is EXTREMELY pigmented. It is black as it gets which I really like and was surprised but how dark it actually was. A little bit goes a long way which is awesome. I think this liner would really last someone a long time.

Unfortunately there are negatives for me.. As always your experience could be totally different. IMG_3827This was right after applying the liner so it hadn’t smudged yet, but I don’t think this product is for those of us with oily eyelids. After only a couple hours my liner had transferred to my upper lids and the bottom was very smudged and smokey… It wasn’t cute. I hope y’all have different experience with the liner. It claims to be waterproof and last all day but I didn’t get that pleasure.

Lastly it was an expensive liner. At 24$ I want a liner that lasts until I decide to take it off.

Have you tried pretty vulgar liner? What was your experience?

till next time

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!!
