My first BoxyLuxe arrived yesterday! I’m so excited! I’ve been a subscriber of BoxyCharm for over a year. The regular BoxyCharm box is $21 a month. BoxyLuxe is a once-a-quarter upgrade option you can add to your existing $21-a-month Boxycharm subscription. So for an additional $28.99, you’ll get the Luxe items, and be paying a total of $49.99 for that quarterly box.
Here’s what I got this month:
- Crimes of Beauty GLAM AF Wristlet and phone charger
- Wander Beauty Wanderess Dusk to Dawn Palette
- LUXIE Rose Gold Complete Face Brush Set
- PYT Mini Straightener
- Spongelle’s Body Wash Infused Buffer in Blossom Bliss
- Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream
- VIOLET VOSS HG – PRO Eyeshadow Palette
- tarte tarteist shimmering lip paint
- LORAC Royal Treatment Primer & Mascara Duo
I have to say that my first impression was wow! This box is so much larger than norm BoxyCharm and it was packed full. The products are basically what you need for a full face of color cosmetics, eyeshadow, blush, highlighter, mascara and a lippie. Plus, a beautiful brush set and skin care and a bath and body product!
Here’s a closer look and my thougts of each item:
When I found out this was in the box, I was so excited! I was still on the waitlist for BoxyLuxe, but I was so hoping I would get off in time for this box. I’ve never tried Violet Voss. I am going to review this on my blog later this month (after I’m done with all of my gift guides). But I have tried it yesterday and today, and spoiler alert — it’s as gorgeous on as in the palette!
This is a highlighter and blush palette. I think the shades are pretty, but it’s strange that the product is in strips and not square pans. It will be difficult to get face brushes into it. I will probably give this away to someone for Christmas.
I’m so happy to receive both of these variations. My shade of lip gloss is Flaming Hot. It’s a shimmering purpley pink with glitters. It’s so gorgeous on! It will be really nice for holiday parties and my anniversary, which is next weekend.
The LORAC mascara is so fun. When you apply the blue primer, your lashes are blue! Colored mascara usually doesn’t show up on my, but this did. And with the mascara over it, my lashes had so much volume. I will keep and use both of these products. And I love that they are from brands I know and like.
This is such a gorgeous set! It includes 8 brushes, and they are so pretty and soft! I’m good on brushes right now, but this will make an amazing gift for a friend (who hopefully isn’t ready this right now)!
I was happy to see this as well. I’ve heard such great things about this cram and am looking forward to using it. I’m not the biggest fan of the strong scent, but I can get past that if it’s as good as I hear.
I have tried Spongelle before years ago, I think in a PopSugar box. They are sponges with body wash in it. They are so foamy and smell amazing. A really nice addition to my shower routine. This is in the shape of a star and was made for BoxyCharm.
It’s hard to tell, but this is a small and very cute straightener. I’m not sure if I will give this away or keep it. Hmm. I think I might keep it. We got to choose between a straightener and an eye shadow palette, so I decided to choose this. I think I might need a small straightener for travel! It folds up nicely into the felt case, too.
This makeup bag is very nicely made, but I don’t see myself using it. I will give it to my 23 year old daughter. I think she will like it. I will probably give her the charger, too.
So, my first BoxyLuxe was a hit! Out of the 9 items received, I will keep and use 6 of the products and give away 3. Wow! I usually only keep one or two of the 5 BoxyCharm products each month.
I really recommend BoxyCharm and BoxyLuxe so far. You can subscribe here.
