I’m finally talking about Boxycharm because I got mine for the month of August and it’s been a while since I did a review. I know I’ve been a little M.I.A but I’m starting to get back on track. School is starting so my son is going back to school so I’m trying to get back to doing my reviews again and back into my routine.
Now if you don’t know what Boxycharm is, it is a monthly subscription where you pay US$21 a month and you get 4 to 5 full size is items. The price is always US$100 or more which is amazing. I really love this box just because it gives me new things that I may not ever have bought myself or brands that I’ve never even heard of. I love finding new brands and products that I love and can add to my collection.
So I’m going to let you know everything in my box and then we’ll talk about each thing and just kind of a little bit of a review on each product I don’t go to in-depth but we’ll touch base a little bit on each one and we’ll see my thought so if you want to know what I like about each product or what I don’t like then let’s get started and you can just keep on reading
Becca Hydra-Mist & Refresh Powder
This powder I was so shocked by. I actually really like it and it’s something I definitely will repurchase. When you apply this powder it literally feels like a setting spray, that’s the only way I can explain it. You really have to try it in order to see how it feels on the skin but it is so cooling. If you have dry skin is it something I definitely recommend for you to try. My makeup lasted all day and I didn’t find that my concealer moved or anything like that. I’m so surprised at how much I love this powder.
Wander Glow Ahead Illuminating Oil
I’m not that big of a fan of oils before my makeup, to be honest. I just find after I’m done putting my foundation and setting powder on it gets kind of lost. If I was using maybe a very sheer foundation and not a matte full coverage foundation I’d probably like it a little more. For me, I just tend to stick to more matte full coverage foundation so I just find it gets super lost. Besides that, I actually did like how the oil felt on my skin. So maybe one day I’ll try it with a more sheer coverage foundation to give you a better opinion on if it actually does make my skin more Illuminating. If you have used it leave a comment below so I can know your opinions on the oil.
Tarte Big Ego Mascara
This mascara I don’t really care for it. I don’t find it the best that I’ve used. It says that it’s going to give me a fully loaded flutter for up to 16 hours and I don’t find that my lashes are fully loaded. I find that it makes my lashes look more black if that makes sense. Like I don’t find that it really did anything to my lashes other than making them black. They had no volume and weren’t thick. There are a lot more mascaras out there that I like better than this one, unfortunately. So this one I would not repurchase. I don’t think there are any Tarte mascaras that I actually really like. I didn’t mind one that we got in the box a while back but still, there are better ones out there it’s still not something I would repurchase
Ace Beaute Glimmer Shadow Duo
These shadows I was excited about and I’m happy to say I like them. I also like that we got two colours I saw some people getting this silver colour which I was a little upset I didn’t get because pink isn’t my favourite. You definitely need to apply these with your finger versus a brush. When I apply with my finger it goes on much more smoothly and it last longer. I applied with a brush and it creased. Some people I saw used a silicone brush to apply maybe I would get one of those. I prefer to use a brush over my finger because I have long nails and can’t get the shadow where I want. Let me know if that’s you too.
Steve Laurant Lip Liner
The last thing is a lip liner and I like it of course. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a lip liner that I’m like oh my God this is so awful I’m not going to use this. Like you can’t really mess up a lip liner. I’m also happy with the colour, it is a colour I will definitely use. Other than that I don’t really know what to say I mean we all know how a lip liner works. It’s not the creamiest lip liner I have ever had but it’s not like I don’t have trouble drawing across my lips if that makes sense.
Overall this box was a really good box. I’ll still use the mascara even though I didn’t really care for it because I never care which mascara I’m using underneath my false lashes. I find you can’t really notice my lashes anyway as long as it’s black I’m happy. My favourite thing from this month box definitely was the Hydra mist and refresh powder by Becca. It kind of just blew me away when I put it on. I was talking to a friend at work and she was talking about how it was like a setting spray on your face before I even tried it and she was right. You just really have to try it too kind of experience it. If you got the box to let me know what you guys thought and follow me on Instagram to see my looks using these products and more.
