February ‘18 BoxyCharm | Galaxy Glow

What is it?: A monthly subscription box with 5-6 usually full sized, sometimes deluxe sample sized, beauty products.

How much is it?: $21 a month

I am always excited when I come home from work and see BoxyCharm in my mail box.

This months theme is Galaxy Glow. Which has nothing to do with Valentine’s Day, and that makes me happy. I also assumed there would be something holographic or strange colored in the box. Apparently in the beauty world that’s what Galaxy means. I like the space version more, but that’s just me.

Let’s open the box!

Naked Cosmetics Holographic Highlighter Palette $39.99

Jumping into the “holographic” stuff right off the bat. I don’t have any neat colored highlights, besides one from Estate Cosmetics. I think I’ll have fun with this. I do love the Naked Cosmetics brand. Naked Cosmetics is Cruelty Free.

The third shade in the first row and the second shade in the second row are a bit rough compared to the other shades. They are all rather pigmented.

Cover FX Shimmer Veil “Amethyst ” $28

I don’t have much from Cover FX, but I have loved everything I have tried. I have heard some great things about the new Shimmer Veils. I must say, I am really intrigued by this sort of eyeshadow, but have no clue how to really use them. Apparently this one can be used anywhere on the face, awesome.

The shade is very pretty! Cover FX is Cruelty Free and have a ton of vegan products!

Use the code FXCharm for 20% off your Cover FX order.

Vintage Cosmetics Smokey Eye Pencil $21

Just a black wooden eye pencil.

Logical Harmony says that this brand is a grey area as far as their Cruelty Free stance goes, so I am just going to pass on this eye pencil.

Pür The Complexion Authority X-Faux Lips Plumping Lip Exfoliator $17

I love lip exfoliators. My lips get very dry very easily, so I exfoliate them most nights. I do prefer this format for them, less messy. The scent is of Shea butter and the formula seems relatively clean! Pür is Cruelty Free!

Crown Pro Trio Brush Set $29.99

These look a lot like the Wet N Wild brushes I love. The brush are extremely soft and the set contains; a concealer brush, a sculpting brush, and an all over setting brush. I will probably use none of them for their intended purpose, but they will all be used. Crown Brush is Cruelty Free, but they do still make natural hair brushes, so take their stance as you may.

That is it for my BC! I am happy with everything, but the eye pencil. But, the fact that there was a brush set makes up for the over priced liner. $125.98 in products for only $21!

February 2017 Boxy Charm!


Tonight, I bring you the UN-Boxing for this month’s BoxyCharm! It is $21 a month, and usually has 4-5 full size, but sometimes sample size, beauty products!


Royal & Langnickel Omnia Eye Kit Retail: $29.98

I really thought this brand was cheaper. But no matter,they are soft and seem to be built pretty nicely. I always love getting brushes in these boxes!

Dr. Brandt Microdermabrasion Retail price: $79

I have tried this before and I love it! It is so expensive though, so I never picked it up. Very thankful that I get to have it again.

Small Z-Palette Retail price: $14

I can always use a Z-Palette. I think this one will be great for travel. I think the BoxyCharm symbol being on it is a really nice touch. It does contain the pans and stuff like when you buy a Z-Palette.

Real Her Lipstick “Boss” $18:

Some how all my pictures got lost of this:(. But, it’s a beautiful berry shade! Paraben and cruelty free. I also did a video of this unboxing, so you can see it, Here!

Makeup Geek “Anarchy” and “Mirage” $12:


I got the 2 shadow pans in Anarchy and Mirage. Believe it or not, these are the first Makeup Geek shadows I have tried, and I am really excited to have them. I will use both shades a ton!

I hope to you enjoyed this post and thank you for reading! Here is the companion video. What sort of posts and videos would you like to see? Comment below!
