BoxyCharm BoxyLuxe Subscription Box Review — March 2019

img_0087.jpg

Hey all! I received my second BoxyLuxe 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.

I really enjoyed my December box.  You can see that review here.  I saw the spoilers for this box, I just didn’t know what variations I would get.

The theme for this month is La Vie En Rose.  Here’s what I received:

I have tried this cream before.  It’s very nice, especially as a night cream.  It’s extremely hydrating without being greasy.  And my skin always looks beautiful the next morning after use. This is a great product to get in the box!

These Moda Brushes are gorgeous.  And they are really soft.  They can be used for face powder, highlighter, bronzer — whatever I need them for.  I love getting nice brushes in boxes, so I will definitely use these!

IMG_0101 I have tried a few things from Wander Beauty, but I haven’t tried this mask.  I actually think they created this Rose Gold peel off mask for BoxyCharm. I’m excited to try this!  I’ll test it out this weekend.

I knew I was getting a Becca Lipstick and was very excited.  But, I got the shade Chocolate — and it’s almost spring. I usually only wear nudes or lighter pinks, so this will not be used.  And, it’s disappointing because I wanted to try the formula, but I don’t want to use it just one.  I will give it away or sell it.

This is the Cover FX palette.  This was created for BoxyCharm.  This is the Light-Medium shade.  There is also a Medium-Deep I believe. This is my favorite item in the box from my first impressions.  The packaging may not look like it, but it’s really good quality and it has a nice mirror.  The shades are all perfect for my light skin.  But…

Speaking of skin tone, BoxyCharm make an announcement that everyone should fill out the profile questionnaire so that we will get the correct shade for our skin tone.  But, I guess that they sent the incorrect shades to a lot of subscribers.  They did apologize, but they aren’t sending out a new palette, they gave the subscribers charms instead.  So hmmm. I’ll talk more about this at the end of the blog.

IMG_0094IMG_0095 So, this is the Morphe Day Slayer palette.  There were four different palette variations.  These others had purples, corals and pinks.  This one has oranges and browns.  It was the one I didn’t want because it reminds me of fall and it’s almost spring.

I will either keep this until fall and then try it out or give it away.

These Deborah Lippman polishes look really pretty. The one on the left is Oh Donna, a sparkly rosy mauve and the one on the right is Modern Love, a classic mauve creme. I am going to use these, maybe even together, this weekend.

These are very pretty, but I don’t wear false lashes.  So I might add these to my Instagram giveaway I’m doing when I hit 5000 followers (follow me @fortyflirtyfab to see that giveaway later, and my fun posts now!).

I haven’t tried Iconic before, but they are a luxe brand. I am trying out some new brow products, so I don’t know if I’m going to keep this.  That’s why I’ve kept the seal on it.  I love brow pencils, but I’m sure this is nice. The color is Medium, but I’ve seen some photos and it looks pretty dark.  My brows are almost black, so it would be fine for me.

I just realized that I forgot to take a photo of the bag alone. You can kind of see it in the first photo.  It’s too lake to take one now, but I might tomorrow and if I do, I will put it here.  It is a really pretty train case style bag.

So that is a lot of products, whew! The total is $301.98 which is pretty great for spending $49.99.  I think this is a really good deal, if you don’t mind not knowing if you will enjoy the variations you get.  I’m glad I got the correct face palette, but I’m not going to use the lipstick or probably the eye shadow palette.  And I think it stinks that many subscribers can’t use their face palette (or not use it as intended.  It can probably be used for eyeshadows).

I will keep and enjoy the face palette, the brushes, the mask, polishes, train case and maybe the face cream.  I have so many right now, I don’t know if I will keep it.  The other products I will either giveaway or sell.

I have so much makeup and skincare right now, and I am also getting Ipsy Glam Bag Plus soon.  So, I think I’m going to give both of the subscriptions until June (which will give me one more month of BoxyLuxe, plus it’s my birthday month) and then I will choose which one to keep.  These are my only current subscription boxes, but I don’t really think I need both. But we will see…

Do you get BoxyLuxe or BoxyCharm?   What were your variations this month?
