I received my BoxyCharm December 2017 box a couple of weeks ago, and it’s taking me a while to get to it!  My anniversary, my daughter’s birthday and Christmas have left me behind a bit on my blog!

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

Here’s what I received from BoxyCharm:

Real Her Blush Kit – (32 USD)

Crown WH035 PRO BLUSH BRUSH – ($12 USD)

Tarte Tarteist Lash Paint Mascara – ($23 USD)

Pretty Vulgar My Lips Are Sealed Liquid Lipstick –  ($24 USD)

bellapierra Pro Concealer Palette – ($29.99 USD)

The Real Her Blush Kit is a very shimmery blush palette.  I really like the color Fearless on the left, which is a pretty pink.  Limitless is a nice coral and Unstoppable is bronze.  All of the color cosmetics I received will be swatched below.

I do like blush with a bit of shimmer, but this is pretty sparkly.  I can see using this in the summer time, especially  Fearless and Unstoppable.  I also like the packaging.  It’s a heavy duty cardboard and will be easy to travel with.

I’m always so happy when brushes are included in BoxyCharm!  I love trying new brushes, and this one is great!  The bristles are densely packed and really soft.  I like how it’s oval shaped, it can be used for blush, highlight or bronzer.  The handle is sturdy plastic with indentations for grip.

This is the second time I’ve tried the Tartiest mascara.  It has hard rubber bristles instead of more natural ones.  It’s okay, and can be built up for length and volume, but it never gets super glam like tarte’s Lights, Camera Lashes or IT Cosmetics Superhero.  It is a good everyday mascara.

The Pretty Vulgar (great name) lip gloss is metallic and pretty sticky, but it’s okay. I probably won’t use it often.

IMG_9898IMG_9899 The Bellapierre  Pro Concealer Palette is very pigmented.  I tried the orange under my eyes.  It didn’t blend well, but my concealer did cover the orange up and it looked okay.  I probably won’t use again.

Here are swatches of all of the color products:

The first three colors are the color correcter palette, the second three are the blush and the lip color is the last swatch.  The only thing I really like are the first and third blush colors.

So this month was okay, but nothing wowed me.  I will use the blush brush and mascara.  I might use the blush palette.  I probably won’t wear the lip color and I definitely will toss the color correction palette.  What’s interesting about BoxyCharm is that they always have a couple decent brands, plus a few meh or poor quality brands/products.  But, at $21, the value is amazing!

Next month, the spoilers are IT Cosmetics Brow Power brow pencil, DR. BRANDT SKINCARE pores no more® Luminizer Primer, Crown Glam Metals Palette and a face palette from an unknown brand.  If those sound good to you (for $21), you can join here   There may be a wait list, and that is my affiliate link.

What did you get in your BoxyCharm this month?
