Boxycharm is hands down my favorite subscription service. Each month is like a mini Christmas when I spot that black box in my mail.

Let’s see what they gifted us with this time:

Girlactik Lippie

 At first I was not pleased with receiving yet another matte liquid lipstick. We seem to get one every single month. However, after application my mind was changed. This product features a beautiful terracotta shade and a lightweight texture. It feels lovely on the lips, and wears beautifully throughout the day. A huge difference from other overly matte liquid lipsticks i’ve tried. I have not been able to stop wearing this since I got it!

PUR Bronze and Brighten Palette

This was without a doubt the stand out product in the box. This palette, which I cannot find anywhere on the internet, is a total hidden gem. When swatched the three shades (all extremely shimmery) pack a serious punch. So serious in fact, I was a bit nervous in how they would apply to the face. Have no fear the blush, bronzer and highlight all apply beautifully on the skin with just the right amount of pigmentation. This palette will give you some serious glow so make sure to avoid areas of the face that have a lot of texture. All three shades would double as stunning eyeshadows as well, two uses in one! This may be my new must-have face palette.

Crown Glam Metals Palette

Another full size palette? Boxycharm is really out doing themselves this month. This eyeshadow palette features mostly metallic shades that range from cool to warm toned.  With a grunge like color scheme this item is unlike anything in my current collection. It truly is an interesting array of colors. The only shade that isn’t a metallic is a matte black that comes across more of a dark gray when blended on the eye. While this color is nice to have to smoke out a look you will need to pull in another shadow or palette for a transition shade. I have been loving wearing this product so far and find myself reaching for it often. The shadows last all day and blend easily. As a pop of color and sheen on the lid this palette is ideal.

DR. BRANDT SKINCARE pores no more® Luminizer Primer

This may be tied for my favorite product in the box. I am obsessed with Dr. Brandt skincare products, therefore trying a makeup primer from them was exciting. This primer claims to be luminizing on the skin, which it may be but not overwhelmingly so. It adds just a touch of sheen. Where this product stands out is how well foundation applies on top of it. Any foundation! It locks my makeup into place for the day and blends well with other products to make the skin look great.

IT Cosmetics Brow Power™ Universal Eyebrow Pencil

My go-to eyebrow product tend to be pencils so this was a hit for me to receive. A dual-ended item, one side featuring a spoolie to get brows shaped and the other side being an oval shaped pencil. This has a good amount of pigmentation but in my opinion it might be a touch TOO creamy. Pencils that feature more of a waxy consistency keep my brows in place all day, but when using this product in conjunction with a brow gel you are in the clear.  I am also not sure if this pencil truly is universal, anybody with very dark hair might have trouble getting the pigmentation they need from it. Nonetheless, I am pleased with this product and plan to use it up..

Whoa, what an incredible month with two full-sized palettes. How does Boxycharm do it?! What do you think of this box? Did we get the same products? I would love to know.
