BoxyCharm Subscription Box Review — May 2018

IMG_1037

My May BoxyCharm arrived a few days ago.  It came much earlier this month.  I’m always excited to receive it!

Boxycharm is just $21 a month for 5-6 beauty items, most of them full-sized.  It’s an amazing way to try new makeup and beauty tools!

Here is what I received:

Pur Cosmetics Sculptor Highlight & Contour Palette ($30 USD)

Aesthetica Cosmetics Pro Brush Series: 3-Piece Eyeliner, Brow & Spoolie Brush Set ($45 USD)

Aesthetica Cosmetics Brush P12 Brush ($27 USD)

CoverFX Blurring Primer ($38 USD)

Pretty Vulgar The Ink Gel Eyeliner ($24 USD)

Beauty Creations Matte Lip Gloss in Sweet Heart ($10 USD)

The value of this box is amazing — $170!  It’s BoxyCharm’s 5th birthday and they really gave a high value box!

This Pur Cosmetics contour palette is so nice!  It smells like chocolate, which is fun.  I did swatch this (all swatches are below), but then gave it to my daughter.  I didn’t keep it because the contour is way too dark for me, and I have plenty of highlighters.  It did swatch nicely though.

I really like the brand Pur Cosmetics.  And I have a review of some of their new products coming soon!

img_1044.jpg  We get brushes in almost every BoxyCharm.  I don’t use all of them, but I will use these.  The P12 is so soft, and is nice for bronzing or blush. I’ve haven’t played with the eye trio yet, but I will.  I am excited to try them with the new liner!

This Cover FX primer is my favorite item in the box, and is worth getting this box!  It has a light tint and is dimethicone based.  It claims to “blurs the appearance of pores, fine lines, and other imperfections for ultra-smooth airbrushed skin.”

A little of this goes a long way.  It does blur my pores and makes them appear smaller.  It’s really nice under my Flower Beauty Light Illusion foundation!

IMG_1047.JPG This little ink pot liner is so cute!  And it holds a lot of product!   I have swatched it and it glides on very easily.  I am going to play with it soon on my eyes.  I usually don’t wear black eyeliner, but it’s fun for going out. Plus, the pot is too cute not to keep out on display.

I have’t tried anything from Beauty Creations before.  This is called a Matte Lip Gloss in the shade Sweet Heart.  But, it’s basically a liquid lipstick.  This color is too bright for me, so I gave it to my daughter.

Here are the swatches:

From left to right, the eyeliner, the matte lip gloss, and the Pur contour palette.

So this month was a win for me for the primer alone.  I am really loving it.  I will also use the brushes and I’ll try the eyeliner.  I gave the lipstick and contour palette to my daughter who will love it.  So it is a successful box for me!

There are already a couple of spoilers for the June box.  We’ll get the colorful Alamar Cosmetics eye shadow palette and a Sol de Janiero product. I’m excited for both!

Do you get BoxyCharm?  What was your favorite product this month?
