Beauty subscriptions are rolling out, which is the best time of the month! This month’s theme is “Altar Ego.” Something that is somewhat spooky for October? How fitting! Here’s hoping this month knocks it out of the park.
IT COSMETICS – SUPERHERO ELASTIC STRETCH VOLUMIZING MASCARA
Who doesn’t always need another mascara? I have used this in the past and remember enjoying it. This product both lengthens and volumizes the lashes. Two coats of this stuff and you are good to go!
PUR COSMETICS – MIDNIGHT MASQUERADE PALETTE
Palettes come standard in Boxycharm these days and I do not hear anybody complaining. This double sided palette features four face shades on one side and eight eye shadows on the other. However, all could be worn beautifully on the eyes. While they are pretty, they are not my favorite formula. The eye shadows needed a lot of work to create a decent look and I had to build up the face shades a ton in order for them to appear. Not my favorite palette but not the worst. The selection of colors is fun, they just take a bit of patience.
FARMACY BEAUTY – GREEN CLEAN
Skin care? I’ll take that! High end skin care at that! This cleansing balm should be applied to dry skin, rubbed on making up heavy parts (including the eyes) and then wiped away with a cotton round. This will hopefully melt off all residue and leave you squeaky clean. This stuff smells bomb and has skin loving benefits. I have been wanting to try more products from the Farmacy line, so I am enthused.
DERMOVIA – LACE A PEEL BLACK BAMBOO CHARCOAL PEEL OFF MASK
Another skin care item? We lucked out this month! This product comes with two parts. A charcoal paste mask that you apply to the skin and a thin lace material mask you put on over top. You secure the lace mask around your ears (so it really does stay in place) and then peel the lace off once the charcoal mask has dried. I can’t wait to try this!!! An exciting, nontraditional face mask that gives you enough for two applications.
KAT VON D – EVERLASTING LIQUID LIPSTICK IN “LOVESICK”
Another long wear liquid lipstick. This one is FINALLY not a brown shade though, so i’m happy about that. Lovesick is a mauve color that really is transfer proof. Does this mean it dries out the lips and emphasizes lines? Yes, but nothing a little chapstick underneath won’t help. I really like the shade on me and how it wears for about four or five hours. After that time, it is best to take off and completely re-apply.
Overall, I am pretty stoked with this box. All awesome brands and items that I will use. The theme was very on point for the month of October. Every single product had a Halloween element to it between the packaging or the use of the item. What did you think of this month’s Boxycharm? Did you receive the same products?
