BoxyCharm Subscription Box Review – November 2017

I recently received my November BoxyCharm! I have been subscribing for a few months now and have generally enjoyed it.

Boxycharm is just $21 a month for 5-6 beauty items, most of them full-sized.

The products I received this month are:

KNC Beauty Collagen Lip Masks (Set of 3) – $15

Laqa & Co Cloud Lips Airy Matte Lipstick in Storm-  $17, colors may vary

BoxyCharm x Luxie Quad Eye Travel Set Brushes – $32

CoverFX illuminating setting spray – $31

Winky Luxe Kitten Palette – $25

I think these lip mask are kinda strange.  I also have just got a Rodial one.  I guess I will be testing out lip mask this weekend!

This color is really dark in the tube, but is more like a berry shade– see swatch below.  I don’t really wear darker lip colors, but I may wear this during the holidays.

These brushes are gorgeous.  I love the look of them and they are so soft.  This includes from left to right:

221T: Flat Definer Brush – Use this to define and smudge out your lower lash line.

227T: Blending Brush – Use this for precise blending in the crease.

213T: Shading Brush – Use this to apply eyeshadow

207T: Angled shading eye brush – Use this for blending out any lines or for smoking out the outer corners of your eyes.

This is one of the items I was really looking forward to! It’s supposed to give the face a glow and help makeup last all day.  I tried it today, and it did leave a soft glow on my skin.  I’m going to use it in the morning before I go to work tomorrow, and then go out with my friends.  We’ll see how my makeup looks at the end of the day.

I am so excited for this!  I haven’t tried anything by Winky Lux before, and I have heard good things.  First of all the packaging is so cute!  I love the kitties on the cover.  I wish the palette had a mirror, but the size of the pans are good.

The shades are so pretty! (Swatches below) My favorite shade is the first in the middle row called Holographic.  It is a gorgeous pinky-lavender.  I wore this today.  I used Holographic on my lid and the dark gold glitter called Cateye in my crease.  As much as I loved it, mid day I had a lot of glitter on my cheeks.  I think and hope it was from Cateye, because I love Holographic so much.  Next time I will wear Chesire (the red color on the bottom row) in the crease.

On the left is the lip color. All of the shadows swatched well, except for the last two, dark mattes. I’ll be playing with the palette the rest of the week, for sure!

I am impressed with this box!  I didn’t care for October’s (see review here), but November was a hit.  I will use the shadow, brushes, and setting spray a lot.  I will try the lip masks and probably won’t use the lip color.

So far the spoilers for the December box are Tarte Tarteist Lash Paint Mascara  and Real Her Blush Kit. 

I’m not too thrilled yet, I hope there’s something amazing coming.  But, we’ll see.

Do you subscribe to BoxyCharm? What did you get this month?

  1. Give it time-I’ve been subscribing for about a year and I’ve gotten some pretty amazing stuff. 😉 some months are more meh than others but for 21$ it just can’t be beat. I got the Dr Brandt Microdermabrasion earlier this year and I think it’s seen it’s last squirt 😜 but it’s some gooooood stuff. There was a tarte palette over the summer (I’ve gotta use it, I keep forgetting I have it) and I’ve gotten several brushes over the past year that I loooove.

  2. We received the same exact box right down to the same lip color! Boxycharm is my fave subscription box- can’t beat 5 full sized products for $21! The palette is lovely! Not a fan of the illuminating setting spray as it made me just look oily. Still a great little box though! Don’t give up, you’ll be impressed soon, I’m sure! Great post! Thank you for sharing. 🙂
