BoxyCharm Subscription Box Review — April 2018

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:

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!

img_0862.jpgThis 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 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?
