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