September 2017 Boxycharm Review

 

I received my September BoxyCharm and am so excited!  This is my second month (you can see my August Boxycharm review here).  It’s definitely one of my favorite beauty boxes and is worth the $21 per month!

Boxycharm contains 5-6 beauty items, most of them full-sized. It ships to the US and Canada.

This month, I received:

PUR Cosmetics Soiree Diaries Eyeshadow Palette – $34

ColourPop Ultra Satin Lip in Littlestitious – $6

MAC Cosmetics Eyebrow Pencil in Spiked – $18

Studio Makeup Luminous Loose Blush – $35

bareMinerals Perfecting Face Brush – $28

Briogeo Don’t Despair Repair Hair Mask – 2 oz $18

This is a gorgeous warm and cool toned neutral palette.  The first row are mattes, the second are satins and the third, shimmers.

I have been using this for the past couple of days and I really like it.  There’s a little kick up in the pan, but not a lot.  They suggest using each vertical row of three for a complete eye look.  I haven’t yet, but that’s a good suggestion.  So far, I really love Private Party, Gala and Stunner.  The glitters are nice when applied with my finger, but don’t show up well if I apply them with my brush.  They are so pretty, though!

Swatches can be found at the end of this post of all the colored makeup I received.

Colourpop’s Ultra Satin Lip is my favorite formula of theirs.  I have a Colourpop haul review coming up next week with more of these lovelies!

The texture of the is creamy and it applies very evenly.  It dries down a bit to a semi-matte, but stays hydrating all day.  This color is so pretty.  It’s described on the Colourpop website as dusty pinky purple, but it stains my lips a pretty berry color.  Love!

The MAC Eye Brow pencil is in the shade Spike, a rich brunette. It is listed as self-propelling and self-sharpening.  I had to press down hard to get the swatch below.  I haven’t tried it on my brows yet, but I hope it works better on hair.  The color matches my dark brown hair, which is nice.

The Studio Makeup blush is in a pretty peachy-pink color. There is a lot of blush in the container.  I swatched it below.  It’s fairly matte with a little shimmer.  I may give it away because I switch to a darker blush in the fall, but we’ll see.

I have been wanting to try this brush for a while!  It has a fluid reservoir (hole) in the middle to put foundation in.  Then buff the brush on the face to blend in the foundation.  I’ve tried it already and it works really well!

The Briogeo mask is a “weekly treatment to restore essential hydration and enhance hair’s resilience and strength.”  I haven’t tried it yet, but I hope it works well!

This month’s Boxycharm was a big win for me!  I’ll use the eyeshadows, lip color, brush and hair mask.  I’ll try the eye brow pencil.  The only item I probably won’t use is the blush.

Do you get Boxycharm? What did you think?

  1. I’ve got the Briogeo mask in my hair as we speak-I’ll let you know! The best mask I’ve ever used so far tho? Tresemmè Instant Recovery Mask. It was bomb.

    October’s Boxy is shaping up to be AMAZING!
