Hi all! I received my May BoxyCharm this week! I always watch for the spoilers so I basically knew what I am getting. But, there were a few different variations this month.
I’ve been subscribed to BoxyCharm for about a year and a half now and really enjoy it. Boxycharm is just $21 a month for 4-5 beauty items, most of them full-sized. It is a nice way to try new makeup and beauty tools.
My version is 2. This month I received:
Alamar Cosmetics Colorette Blush Trio ($22 USD)
Dose of Colors Liquid Matte Lipstick – ($18 USD)
Box value — $108
My photo makes this looks very orange, but the shade Paraiso is more pink in person. I have swatched these below with some of the other products, so hopefully you will be able to see the difference.
This is a really nice formula. Castaway and Scorcher are shimmery and Paraiso is more of a satin. I think these will be really gorgeous in the summer. I love the packaging, too!
First of all, the packaging for this is stunning! I love the rainbow metallic pattern. I haven’t tried much by GlAMGLOW and I’m looking forward to testing this out.
I have been trying to get better at doing my brows, so I love receiving brow products, especially when they are the correct color for me. I have very dark brown hair, and I usually get lighter colors in boxes. So I definitely will try this out!
This is such a pretty cream shadow. In some light it looks purple or pink and in some gold.
The shade I received is Kiss of Fire. It’s a very bright red. I don’t wear red lipstick, but I tried it on to test the formula. It’s very comfortable matte formula. I would like to try it in a nude. It’s really nice. I’ll probably keep this just in case I need a red. It is a gorgeous shade.
Here are swatches of the products I received:
From left to right is the Mellow Cosmetics brow pencil, the Dose of Colors lippie, the Ciate London cream eye shadow, and the Alamar blush trio. I’m loving the products this month!
So this was a great box for me. I will use everything in the box, except for the red lipstick. It is so pretty, though, so I’ll keep it. I’m planning on choosing between BoxyCharm and Ipsy Glam Bag Plus next month, but both boxes were so good this month. I may end up keeping both!
Do you get BoxyCharm? What did you get this month?
