My November Boxycharm Box Has Arrived - My First One!
As you will know from a previous post, I have unsubscribed from Ipsy as I didn’t feel that I was getting products that suited me, also the US/CND exchange rate was making it unviable. So, now I have subscribed to Boxycharm and recently received my very first box.
Boxycharm is sent monthly and although it is not tailored to you personally like some monthly beauty boxes, it usually contains five full or deluxe size samples for $21 USD. There are discounts for longer subscriptions durations which bring the monthly amount down, but you can subscribe on a month to month basis too. In my first box I received five full-size items and here are my first impressions. All prices are USD.
Studio Makeup Cool Down Palette - value $49.95
This palette contains nine cool-toned eyeshadows. First impressions are really good and I am very happy with this palette. Once I have used this for a while I will write a full review with swatches etc.
Skyn Iceland Icelandic Relief Eye Pen - value $20
This eye pen is supposed to combat dark circles, puffiness, and wrinkles when used twice a day. I will be interested to see how this works as wrinkles round my eyes are unfortunately becoming more of a problem for me as I get older.
Crown Brush C513 Pro Detail Crease - value $12.99
I’m a sucker for makeup brushes, so this will be a great addition to my growing collection. It is made from capra hair which is goat, and feels very soft and looks like it will keep its shape - time will tell!
Vintage Illuminating face Highlighter - value $32.00
I’ve never heard of this brand before, but the packaging and look of the product is promising. It is a very pale pink highlighter that has reflective pearls in it that are supposed to give a diamond-like finish to the skin.
Bellapierre Kiss Proof Lip Creme - value $20.00
This is a matte liquid lipstick that promises to last for hours. I am not normally a lover of matte lipstick as i find them very drying. Maybe this one will be different, I will try it out and report back.
Well, as you can see I got a good selection of products. In total my box had a value of $135 USD, so for $21 payment that is pretty good, no complaints here! I am most excited by the eyeshadow palette and cannot wait to try that out. I will be doing a full review once I have given all the products a good trial, but overall I am very happy with my first Boxycharm and cannot wait until next month to see what I then.
