My April BoxyCharm finally arrived. It was supposed to be here last week, but stopped moving on Friday. I got it yesterday and I was so happy!
Boxycharm is just $21 a month for 5-6 beauty items, most of them full-sized.
Here is what I received:
- BrowGal Instatint Eyebrow Gel in Light Hair 03
- slmiss glam shadow brush duo
- Dr. Brandt- Pores No More Vacuum Cleaner Purifying Mask
- MAC Liptensity Lipstick in Burnt Violet
- ColourPop Element of Surprise Palette (Subscribers will receive 1 of 5 ColourPop palettes)
I am so happy with this box — even though I will probably only use two or three of the items. Spoilers were released saying that we would get 1 of 5 variations of the ColourPop palette. I have 3 of the 5 that were shown, so I thought for sure I would receive one I had, but I got a new one (to me)! And I really wanted the Element of Surprise!
Lets start with that:
First of all, I love the color purple. The packaging on this is stunning! This is a pretty neutral palette with a couple of pops of color and a couple of shimmers/glitters. I think this will be amazing for all seasons. I will do a palette review of this sometime — I’ll just add it to the pile of palettes I need to review!
This is the other item I was really excited about. I’ve used them once and like them okay, they are a little larger than the blending and shadow brushes I usually use. I need to play with them more. They are beautiful! I love the colors and the little gems. The brushes are P15, eyes shadow brush (pink) and the L34 Blend Beauty (purple). The handles also say BoxyCharm, so they must be a collaboration.
I’m not sure about this. I do have larger pores, but I think its due to aging. And my pores are always larger during allergy season, so I don’t know if I want to mess with them. We’ll see. I might sell this on eBay.
This brand gets really good reviews. But I can’t use this. My brows are so dark their almost black. I will pass it on to my daughter who is blond. She will love it!
I have no idea what to do with this! I found out a couple of months ago that we were getting MAC in a future box and I was so excited. The issue is that I wear nude or light pink lip colors. Plus, I don’t know who I could give this to — I don’t have any friends wh like Gothic purple lips! Lol! I’m sure someone could rock this, so I might sell it on eBay.
Next month the spoiler brands are Pretty Vulgar, Cover FX and Pur Cosmetics. I like all of those brands. The Pretty Vulgar is a pot of cream or gel eyeliner. It’s super cute packaging. I haven’t heard of the others yet, so we’ll see. I think I’ll stay with BoxyCharm at least one more month. Honestly, even thought it’s always an amazing value, I only use one or two of the products I get each month.
Do you subscribe to BoxyCharm? What palette did you get this month?

I’m right with you on the lipstick. I got a similar color and will never wear it.
I got the Semi-Precious palette. It’s my first Colourpop palette. 🙂 I haven’t played around with it yet, but am excited to!
That’s the other one I didn’t have. It looks really pretty!
