If you are looking for a subscription makeup box this is one is an amazing option. Boxycharm gives you 4-5 full-size beauty items (sometimes 6 like this months box for me) like makeup, skincare and beauty tools. It’s only $21.00 a month (around $34.00 with shipping if you live in Canada) and the box is worth $100.00 or more. Always worth the money and always has products I actually like or will use. I can’t see me giving up this box anytime soon. So for this months Boxycharm, this is what I got
CoverFX – Blurring Primer ($38.00)
PUR – Sculptor Palette ($30.00)
Pretty Vulgar – The Ink Gel Eyeliner ($24.00)
Aesthetica – 3 Piece Eye Trio ($45.00)
Aesthetica – P12 Face Brush ($27.00)
Beauty Creations – Liquid Lip Gloss ($10.00)
PUR Sculptor Palette
Now, this palette left me patchy. I used the shade Inventor in the Sculptor Palette by PUR and it was just not for me. It didn’t blend well and left my checks patchy. I used the brush that came in the box to apply it to my face and it was just not working. The highlighter in this palette did work for me it wasn’t patchy. I did try the palette again and thought I would try it with a different brush but it still was patchy.
Overall this palette wasn’t for me. Although the highlight was okay I can’t see myself using it I’d rather just pick up my Anastasia Beverly Hills x Amrezy Highlight.
Aesthetica P12 Face Brush
Now the face brush I liked, I thought it was soft and the right size. I used it two ways to see how I liked it. First I used it to contour my face and I also used it to dust my baking powder off under my eyes.
I didn’t really like using it for dusting the powder off under my eyes. It was just too dense for dusting the powder for me. So I will just be using this brush for contour.
Aesthetica 3 Piece Eye Trio
The trio of brushes I would not buy for the price and honestly, they are not what I would be looking for. The spoolie I can just get on the end of almost all the brow pencils or on a brush meant for the brows.
Now the angle brush for me is to thick to be an eyeliner brush. I will use that brush for my eyeshadow when I’m doing cut crease or something like that.
The last eyeliner brush is better. I can actually get a wing done so that was nice, but once again probably not something I will grab because I have an eyeliner brush I already like and use.
Pretty Vulgar The Ink Gel Eyeliner
I love getting things in my Boxycharm that I want to buy/try and I was so excited to see the Pretty Vulgar Gel Eyeliner. Also, can we talk about the packaging for a second? Because it is wonderful. The gel itself was good, smooth easy to apply and black.
I don’t know if its just me but sometimes things say black and to me, it is just not black its more grey. This eyeliner I didn’t find that it, it was black enough. Another thing I liked was that I could put it on my waterline as well and it didn’t bother my eyes and it wasn’t running all over the place. So I will definitely continue to use this product.
CoverFX Blurring Primer
I like this primer. It did a good job of covering my pores. When I first tried it I didn’t like it though. I didn’t think it did its job but when I tried it the second time it was nice. I’m not sure if it was the foundation or what, maybe I didn’t put enough product on. Either way, I’ve been wearing the primer since then and it has been doing its job and I’m starting to love it when I look at my skin. I think this is one of the best primers that has worked on my huge pores.
Beauty Creations Liquid Lip Gloss
This matte lip gloss is wonderful. I loved it, it felt like a liquid lipstick to me other than the stickiness. When I first saw a lip gloss in this months Boxycharm I wasn’t too excited because lip glosses are not my favourite thing. My hair always get in it and then when I try to get my hair out some of the colour gets on my face and it is not cute. Also, I wasn’t expecting it to be this drying, I suggest you moisturize those lips first.
It did a good job of staying on my lips and not going everywhere. It did come off some when I ate but that isn’t too big of a deal to me. Although I did read some mixed reviews on the Boxycharm website but for me, it worked and I liked it. The colour (17 Sweet Heart) is a great colour and I would actually wear so that’s nice. So overall this is a win for me. The stickiness doesn’t bother me since I’m not always pressing my lips together.
