I just received my BoxyCharm February 2018 box a couple of days ago, and I wanted to share it with you. I really like this subscription. You get a lot of makeup for a great price!
Boxycharm is just $21 a month for 5-6 beauty items, most of them full-sized.
Here’s what I got this month:
- Ofra Cosmetics Pop-Up Palette with Blush — $19 for the Palette and $12 for the blush
- CoverFX Shimmer Veil Amethyst – $28 USD
- Crown Pro Trio Brush Set – $29.99 USD
- PUR Lips Plumping Lip Exfoliator – Retail Value $17
- Vintage Cosmetics Smokey Eye Pencil – Retail Value $21
This was a variant item. Subscribers either receive this palette with the blush or Naked Cosmetics Highlighter Palette.
I wanted the highlighter palette. I’m not the biggest fan of variations because I always seem to get the item I don’t want, LOL!
The blush included with this is Winter Rose Glow, a warm brown with subtle shimmer. It’s not really a shade I would wear.
The palette itself is fine, I guess. It’s a little flimsy, and I don’t have anything to put in it. But I might use it some day.
Besides the highlight palette I didn’t receive, this is the item I was most excited about. It’s a really pretty lavender color. It is buildable too. With two layers I got a really shimmery look and ot stays all day.
The brushes are very soft and have a nice indent in them to make them easier to handle.
They are meant to be used for contouring — the smaller one can be used for concealer, the middle one contouring and the larger one for powder. I’m looking forward to using them and seeing how they work.
This exfoliator is a surprise win to me! It not only exfoliates my lips, it hydrates them too. It has a nice fruity taste, too.
I don’t usually wear black eyeliner, but this is really pigmented and glides on smoothly.
All in all, this is a pretty good box. I can see myself using the Cover FX Shimmer Veil, the brushes and the exfoliator. I will probably keep the eye pencil in case I want to wear black eyeliner. I don’t know what I will do with the Ofra palette. I might purchase some shadows to put in it.
