Hello, Charmer! I was so excited to get my VERY FIRST Boxycharm 🎉 It’s my birthday month which 100% factored into my decision to finally subscribe. Everyone deserves to gift themselves every now and then right?? 😅 It also made up for the fact that my Play by Sephora box got lost in the mail *cries* Otherwise, forgive my extra excitement because this month has been incredible: birthday, more beauty subscriptions, GETTING ENGAGED! 💍
Got a sneak peak of this month’s box on a Facebook Group called Glamour Empire and instantly knew it was a steal! Boxy Baddie is this month’s theme and includes: PÜR Cosmetics Soirée Diaries ($34), Bare Minerals Face Perfecting Brush ($28), Studio Makeup’s Luminous Loose Blush ($35), Eyebrows by MAC in “Spiked” ($18), Colourpop’s Ultra Satin Lip in “Mess Around” ($6), Briogeo’s “Don’t Despair, Repair” Deep Conditioning Mask ($20). The box is valued at $141 🎊 Not bad for a $20 box! 😏
The Perfecting Brush could be better, but that could be because it was made specifically for Bare Minerals bareSkin Liquid Foundation. I personally prefer a blender sponge because brushes tend to apply foundation streaky versus smooth and full-coverage.
I love the Colourpop shade. It’s a creamier version of Bow N Arrow, my favorite Kat Von D shade! Also super excited about MAC’s pencil because it will create super fine hairs for my struggling eyebrows. I’m not a fan of powder blushes in general, but the color of this loose powder is so gorgeous. A natural pink tone that is perfect for everyday use.
I don’t really have to say that PÜR’s eyeshadow palette was the highlight of the box. That alone would have been an amazing deal! The colors are so blendable and it’s the most ideal palette for on-the-go. You have some mattes and shimmers – all of which are neutral whites, tans, and browns. It gives you a glowing eye look and the packaging is so trendy and on point!
I’d say if you have the funds and aren’t subscribed, it’s worth every cent! Worst case scenario, if you don’t like a product, you can always gift it to someone because you are getting more than what you’re paying for regardless!
