I was so, so excited to receive my first ever Boxycharm!! It came about a week after I paid for it and it fit into my mailbox nicely. I totally prefer that over having to go into the office. 😛 My first box came the same month I signed up for it. Some subscription boxes make you wait until the next month. I chose the regular month-to-month subscription which is $21/month. I still can’t believe it’s so cheap for the amount of items you get!
The packaging was secure and everything was placed neatly. Every company should start using this thick foam lining!
What Was In My Box?!
Theme: Goal Digger
Instaglam False Eyelashes
“Elevate your look with your new Lashaholic Lashes. These 100 % vegan falsies made from premium silk fibers gives your lashes dimension, natural-looking length and volume.”
My Review: I do not know how to apply falsies properly but, I plan to learn one day. I’m saving these for when I become a pro. They are so beautiful and the box it came in is so cute.
Retail Value: $14.99
Luminous Eye Set
“Add a little sparkle to your brush collection with this limited edition Boxycharm collaboration. The LUXIE Luminous Eye Set features 4 synthetic eye brushes exclusively wrapped for Boxycharm.”
My Review: I am no expert on brushes and I’ve only used two of these so far. They were extremely soft, picked up product perfectly, and blended like a dream. The brush heads are really quite small which I wasn’t expecting but, they are useful for creases, corners, and precision. You can easily do a whole eye look with just these 4 brushes… and, do I even need to mention the handles? The sparkles are gorgeous.
Retail Value: $21.00
Glittering Star Eyeliner
“Sparkle up your glam with Jonteblu Glittering Star Eyeliner. This specially formulated black glitter eyeliner pencil glides on smoothly, leaving behind a long-lasting and subtle shimmer you’ll completely adore.”
My Review: I hate pencil eyeliner, it is always so scratchy and painful to apply. This was even worse because it had glitter in it… it does not go on smoothly at all.
Retail Value: $5.00
Glitter Drops in Nova
“These ultra-concentrated drops of multi-dimensional glitter create a high impact, reflective finish that wows. This multi-use glitter can be used alone, under or over makeup, or mixed into your foundation or moisturizer for an incredibly luxe, glitter effect on the face and body.”
My Review: Cover FX was NOT messing around when they created this. If you are a glitter queen, you need this product in your life. Just a single DOT, not even a whole drop, of this product goes the longest way. IT LEAVES SO MUCH SPARKLE!! It does not turn out gold like you would assume… when you blend it in, there’s pink, blue, white, silver, purple, gold, and moooore! It’s a silky liquid, it doesn’t feel heavy on the face, and it’s doesn’t leave harsh lines like other liquid highlighters do. The dropper-style bottle is pretty neat and I’m excited to use it in all of the other ways it can be used.
Retail Value: $44.00
“Featuring 4 shimmering shades and 4 bold mattes, your new Grandiose Palette has all you need to create unlimited eye looks. These eyeshadows were carefully milled and pressed to deliver intense pigmentation and easy blending.”
My Review: I don’t own that many eyeshadow palettes but, this one is my favorite that I’ve gotten so far. I LOVE the color story– especially the red shades (Rose and Poppy). The pigmentation was out of this world; they all showed up on my lids exactly how they looked in the pans. They felt soft to the touch and not at all dry. It was a breeze blending them all in, too.
Swatches (left-to-right): Jasmine, Clove, Myrtle, Cinnamon, Patchouli, Rose, Poppy, Primerose
Retail Value: $24.99
