I’ve been a subscriber to Boxycharm for nearly a year now. This post is in no way sponsored by Boxycharm. I’m just a loyal lover of their service. Every month I get at least 1-2 full size products that I love and such a great price point of only $21/mo., I think it’s worth it. Each box includes at least 4-5 full size products and is valued at over $100. There’s usually at least 1 luxury item in the box every month, but this month is featuring two luxury brands in both skincare and makeup. Another benefit to this subscription is the tools. Often, boxes come equipped with a variety of face and eyeshadow brushes. To some subscribers this can be a downside. I could understand that for people with larger collections, but if you’re just starting out or looking to build this subscription is a more affordable way to do that!
I’m so impressed with this month’s items! Spoilers on Boxycharm’s facebook page and http://www.mysubscriptionaddiction.com revealed that April would include a Colourpop palette in every box, and that there would be a variation of 5 different palettes. These included Element of Surprise, Golden State of Mind, Semi-Precious, My Little Pony and You Had Me at Hello. If you missed out, you can also find these palettes on Colourpops’ website: https://colourpop.com
My box included the Element of Surprise palette. I wanted this one, or the My Little Pony palette. Both of the variations had colors that I would feel comfortable and excited to wear and add to my collection.
Another featured item that was revealed in earlier spoilers was the Dr. Brandt Pores No More Vacuum Cleaner mask. This is a pore clearing mask that you leave on for up to 5-10 minutes to deeply cleanse and purify pores. The blue beads tint the mask light blue for a guide when you rub them in, and the mask dries quickly and feels very cooling. The cooling sensation even lasts after removing the mask, leaving skin feeling refreshed and clean. So far I really enjoy this mask! It retails for $42 on Ulta’s website. $42 freaking dollars.
My favorite item in the box was actually a product that I wasn’t sure I would even like. It’s The BrowGal Instatint microfiber brow gel. I got the light hair (blonde) shade (subscribers either got a blonde shade or a brown shade variant in their box). Magically, I got a shade that matches my hair. I know many people weren’t lucky enough to get a color that fit their shade. One downside to Boxycharm is they don’t really offer customization options for skin tone, skin type and hair color and type unlike Ipsy and Birchbox.
This product not only keeps my brows in place, but it also tints and thickens them while still looking natural. It’s quick and easy, and if I want a little bit bolder of a look I can always use it to top my Anastasia brow pencil. I definitely recommend picking this up if you like microfiber brow products, I know I’m going to replace it as soon as I notice it starting to dry out.
This box also included two eyeshadow brushes from SL Miss Glam. They’re so cute too. One is a nice fluffy brush and the other is a great little base lid eyeshdow brush. Both seem to work okay, but I really appreciate the attention to detail on the brushes themselves. There’s little gems on the wand, and the pastels are perfect for the “Eye Candy” theme Boxycharm was going for this month. The final item that I received this month was a MAC Liptensity Lipstick in Burnt Violet. It smells incredible like you would expect your typical MAC lipstick would. I always thought they smelled like rich vanilla frosting. Its creamy and very well pigmented. The color is just quite a bit too dark for me. I don’t tend to reach for purples in general, especially since I look more like a vampire than a glam goddess when I wear them. This is still a great product though. I know I can give this to a family member or friend and they would love it!
