Boxycharm has been slackin’ for me in recent months. Could this box be the one that puts them back in the forefront or am I just over it? Let’s find out!
LUXIE – THE SUMMER DAZE 3PC BRUSH SET
Once again, you cannot go wrong with getting brushes in subscriptions. You can use them forever. Loving the fact that they sent three. Two of which are eye brushes that are good for packing on color or glitter (see below) on the lid. The third brush is said to be a contour brush, a bit on the small side for me, but I will find some way to use it. Do I have way too many brushes? Yes. Do I still love receiving these? YES!
ARTIST COUTURE – DIAMOND GLOW POWDER
Loose highlighters are a bit harder to work with than a pressed one. However, they can pack a punch! This peach highlighter has a major purple shift when light hits it (which I learned is almost impossible to capture in a photo). How fun is that? It can be applied subtly or built up. This finely milled powder will last a very long time. It is best to apply loose highlighters with a fluffy brush to get a seamless appearance. When I want a colorful and unexpected highlight this is the product I will reach for.
BODYOGRAPHY – EYE PENCIL
A pencil eyeliner is not the most exciting product to receive, can we all agree on that? I do appreciate that it is not black however. I occasionally like wearing a pop of color on the waterline, so it will get some use. This bronze shade can be a bit hard to apply. I recommend warming it up on the back of the hand first. It is by no means an incredible product but it does the trick.
PUR THE COMPLEXION AUTHORITY – FESTIVAL PALETTE
Getting a palette is Boxycharm’s M.O. This eyeshadow palette features 12 shades ranging from matte to shimmer to glitter. What I’m most excited about? The pressed glitters! I have never used a full-on glitter eyeshadow like this but how pretty would they look on the eyes?! I cannot wait to play around with this product. Some of the shadows did need to be built up (mainly the purple and the deep bronze). Overall, the shadows blended well and were decently pigmented. There are some fun pops of color but for the most part this could be an everyday palette.
APPEAL – HOLOGRAPHIC LIP GLOSS
I have been ALL about lip gloss lately. This holographic shade can be worn over any lip color for a plump look with a pink hint. When applied to the lips it is very difficult to see the shift in color (so not really holographic, now is it?) it just looks like a clear gloss. I still dig it though! I’m just grateful that Boxycharm mixed it up and did not send another liquid lipstick. Juicy looking lips all spring and summer long please!
This was not my favorite box. Boxycharm has been boring me lately. I feel we get the same brands over and over again. Maybe i’m just spoiled, I will of course be giving it another shot to bring back the excitement I initially felt with this subscription.
What do you think of this box? Did we receive the same products? Do you have tips on working with pressed glitter shadows? Let me know down below!
