It is no secret that Boxycharm is my favorite beauty subscription, you just can’t beat it! Five FULL-SIZE beauty products for $21 dollars each month? It doesn’t get much better than that. I am excited to see what I got this time around.
Show me the goods:
PUR Cosmetics “Soiree Diaries” Eyeshadow Palette
Another full size eyeshadow palette from Boxycharm! I heard a rumor that we will be receiving this type of product in each box until the new year. I don’t wear eyeshadow everyday so getting another new palette so often can be overwhelming. This product however is changing that whole mindset. The palette comes with eight matte shades and four metallic ones. The powders feel creamy and don’t kick up any excess powder. They blend easily and it doesn’t take forever to get your ideal eye look, perfect for the girl on the go. All the shadows are of a warm toned variety and feel very on theme for the start of fall. I very much enjoyed the looks I came up with when using this palette and look forward to playing with it more and more.
Eyebrow Pencil by MAC Cosmetics
I was surprised to see a MAC product in this month’s box, pleasantly surprised that is. MAC items typically do not show up in beauty subscriptions so I was pleased to be able to try something I previously hadn’t from the brand. This pencil features a teeny tiny tip that gives you complete control to draw hair like strokes. The formula is the perfect combination of waxy and creamy to make your brows look fuller and set them in place all day. I recently got my eyebrows tinted and haven’t been filling them in as often, but this product is making me want to!
Colourpop Ultra Satin Lip in “Strip”
I just received a Colourpop lippie in my Ipsy bag and now I get to try out another formula from the brand. This liquid lipstick gives off a semi-matte finish which they call “satin.” It is certainly more comfortable than the Colourpop Matte liquid lipstick formula, still extremely long-lasting but not nearly as drying. A thin layer is all you need to get the perfect application (just make sure to exfoliate your lips beforehand). The color dries darker on the lips which I have found to be typical for this brand’s lip colors. “Strip” is a nude-y brown shade and again, perfect for fall inspired makeup looks.
Studio Makeup Loose Blush
I have never heard of this brand before but the product itself intrigued me. A loose blush that is so finely milled it will last you forever. A little goes a long way with this powder and it looks great on the skin. The shade of this blush is a beautiful neutral peach that I think will look good on everybody. I have enjoyed using this product and find that it complements a great deal of looks without overpowering my face.
Brigeo “Don’t Despair Repair” Deep Conditioning Mask
Hair products can be so subjective because everyone has different hair needs. That being said, this mask is a great product for me to receive! I have heard a lot of good feedback about the brand and this product in particular. My hair needs a lot of conditioning and I mean A LOT. Going blonde is a crazy process and your hair gets pretty damaged along the way. The more hair masks for me the better and it doesn’t hurt that it smells amazing. I can’t wait to test this product out!
BareMinerals Face Perfecting Brush
Usually I am incredibly excited to receive brushes in my beauty subscriptions. At first I was happy that I got this item but after first use I quickly changed my mind. The brush features a reservoir in the brush in which you are supposed to put foundation in and then apply it to the face. I remember when this brush first hit the market and was marketed to work in conjunction with a BareMinerals drop foundation. Boxycharm states that it can work with any foundation but perhaps I would enjoy it more if I used a more liquid consistency based product. This brush was too small and not stiff enough for my foundation to be applied the way I am use to. I may keep trying to make it work but right now this brush is a miss in my mind.
Another phenomenal month from Boxycharm! The fact that we got six full size products for $21 as oppose to the typical five just made it all that much better. I adore that you can wear all the products together and create a stunning full look. Did you receive the same products as me? Let me know down below in the comment section!
