January Boxycharm

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

Hey, hey! Oh how I love getting my Boxycharm in the mail. First box of the new year! This month’s theme is “Eyes on 2016”. Let’s get into it.

First off are these Royal & Langnickel [R]evolution eyeshadow brushes. In my opinion you can never have enough brushes, so I was excited to see these in the box. The long brush in the middle isn’t the best quality. The bristles are a little rough but other than that they’re decent! I’m sure I’ll be using these often. The brushes retail for $23.97

I was really excited about these next two!

First is the Blinc Mascara Amplified . This retails for $26. This mascara actually tubes your lashes, meant to provide buildable volume. It applies just like a normal mascara, however I found it was a little harder to remove. It’s not my favorite but I did like it!

Next is the Starlooks Luxe Longwear Eye Liner Pen. As some of you know I don’t wear liquid or gel eyeliner on my lid because I absolutely suck at it haha. So I was excited to get this so I can practice on my skills. I’ll let you know how I like it when I become a pro (;.

 

And finally, last but not least…

the Coastal Scents Revealed Smoky palette! This palette has beautiful shades! To be completely honest, Coastal Scents do not have the greatest quality in shadows. Some of these colors do not have good pigmentation BUT some actually are great. For what it’s worth, I think its a great palette for beginners and I’m glad to have it to add to my collection. I know I’ll be using this quite often in my everyday and even more dramatic looks. (retails for $39.95 but is always on sale for about $19.00)

That’s everything. There were only 4 products this month, but that’s because we got a full sized eyeshadow palette so I’m not complaining! Overall I’m happy with everything! The combined worth of this box totals to about $109!!

If you’re interested in subscribing to Boxycharm or want to know more about how it works, you can check them out here.

I hope you enjoyed this post! Let me know if you liked this month’s box- and also if you got the black eyeliner pen or the blue eye pencil!

Hope you’re all well.

Thanks for reading. Big love,

December Boxycharm

Hi guys! I’m so excited about this month’s Boxycharm! So let’s get right into it.

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

This month’s theme is “Pop Fizz Clink”- 1920’s inspired.

First are these face products.

I absolutely love the packaging of these Tatcha Aburatorigami Japanese Beauty Papers. They’re great to just throw in your purse and keep for when you need to get rid of some excess oil throughout the day. These retail for $12.

Next is the Mullein & Sparrow Mini Facial Mask. I was a bit confused because inside is a powder, but fear not, all you have to do is add water and you’re good to go. I’ve been super into the idea of face masks lately so I am really excited to try this out! I believe I linked the full size one, but the mini retails for $15.

How cute is this little Jelly Pong Pong All Over Glow highlighter? I’m basically obsessed with all the packaging in this month’s box haha. This is a really pretty and light cream highlight. Surprisingly enough, this is my first ever highligher so I was pretty happy to see this in the box.

On the right is the Nelson J Beverly Hills Moisture Healing Mask. Again, super excited to try this out as well! Not only is this a hair mask, but it can also protect your hair against Chlorine and salt water damage! How cool is that? Maybe I’ll try and save some of this to last until the summer haha.

Last but not least are the lip products.

I freaked out when I saw an Ofra Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick was included in this month’s box!!! This is in the shade “Americano” and I absolutely love it! I’ve tried Ofra’s liquid lipsticks before and they are such good quality. They retail at $19.90.

 And lastly, the Bellapierre Waterproof Gel Lip Liner in “Cinnamon” -which pairs nicely with “Americano”. Not much to say other than all around this is a great lip liner! This retails for $17.99

Alright, that is everything! I’d say this box has been one of my favorites, however I am always pleasantly surprised with Boxycharm. By the way, if you don’t know, Boxycharm is a monthly subscription service that costs $21 a month. If you’re interested, you can subscribe here. Overall this month’s box was worth about $104.00!

Hope you enjoyed this post! Did you like this month’s box? Did I get something different than you? Let me know! Hope you have a great week.

Thanks for reading. Big love,
