It’s Boxy time guys!
Before we begin, BoxyCharm is making some changes next month. They are making a $35 premium box, which I will not be subbing to, well I’m going to try to stop my self. The regular BoxyCharm is going to go up to $25 a month rather than $21. But! You will get to pick one item in your box, and they are also going to be doing add ons like Ipsy does. The value of the box has also gone up to $125, but I feel like the boxes are usually worth more than that any way.
Now that the technical stuff is done, let’s get into the fun stuff!
Dose of Colors Eyeshadow Palette in Baked Browns $32
The box is already paid for plus some! I have been wanting to try these little palettes, but just never picked them up. I would have like to receive one of the other variations, but this is still a nice palette that I will get use out of. A super easy palette to reach for, for a quick grungy eye look.
The shadows are buttery and actually very easy to blend. They are pretty powdery though so be aware. I also wanted to mention that the little brush included is pretty useful, which is always a nice little extra!
Laura Geller Baked Gelato Swirl Illuminator “Diamond Dust” $26
I have this highlighter in a little holiday trio, and it is the only shade I use. I am happy to have the full size so I can pass that trio along. Diamond Dust has a beautiful pink shift to it.
Iconic London Lip Pluming Gloss “Nearly Nude” $26
This gloss is a great my lips but better shade. You can feel the tingly sensation from the plumping ingredient, which I enjoy the feeling of. This gloss isn’t sticky, like at all. I can see myself getting quite a bit of use out of this gloss, which is not something I say often.
Touch In Sol Pretty Filter Glassy Skin Balm $32
I never understood or got into the glassy skin trend. So, I did not have high hopes for this product. However, I actually really like it. It reminds me a lot of the Unicorn primer I got in my Ipsy. It made my skin smooth and lit from within glowy.
Illuminati Cosmetics Sponge $21
Okay, this thing. It does expand with water and it worked really well with my setting powder. BUT, everything else was bad. It’s really hard and absorbs so much product. Maybe I will use it a few more times to see if I grow to enjoy it, but first impression- this is not a sponge that I enjoy. I don’t understand how it is $21.
Over all thoughts?
Besides the sponge, I really enjoyed my boxy this month. I got something I have been wanting, something I already know I love, and two surprise awesome items! For $21 I got $137 worth of beauty products. Not bad, not bad at all!
What was in your Boxy? Would you like in depth reviews of any of these products?
