BoxyCharm Premium Review – February 2020


Hi all! I’ve just received my February BoxyCharm Premium! This is a fairly new subscription from BoxyCharm.  It’s a little more products than the regular and a little less than the BoxyLuxe.  Here’s the details:

  • It’s $35 a month
  • 6-7 beauty items a box
  • $175+ Value
  • You get to pick one of the items
  • The items will be different from BoxyCharm/BoxyLuxe – you can subscribe to both with no product overlap.

I’ve been receiving this box since it launched last November. The products I received are:



My total this month is $259 — Amazing for a $35 box!


This is the item I chose this month.  It was between this and a hair straightener.  The photos I saw of this made the palette look so bright, but in real life it’s a lot more wearable.  I’m excited to test it out!


I’m very excited about this blush!  I don’t have any Hourglass Cosmetics products and I’ve heard their blushes are gorgeous. This is in Dim Infusion – A subdued coral blush fused with Dim Light to add warmth.  I’m trying it out soon!  I’ve been sick the last few days and haven’t been wearing makeup, but I have lots of new makeup to play with, so I’m getting up and putting makeup on!


This is the skincare I received.  I love Glow Recipe and am looking forward to use this mist, but I’ve never heard of Faccia Skincare before, but I’me game to try this spendy face cream. I have a few moisturizers open right now, but I’ll put it in my stash for later.


I have heard good things about this Tarte primer.  I love all types of primer, so I will use this, too.

The packaging of this Korres Body Butter is gorgeous.  It’s very floral, but I will keep it in my office and use it when I need some hydration.

I am quite happy with this month’s BoxyCharm Premium!  I plan on using everything that I got in the box this month!  Amazing!  Next month’s Premium is all Fenty Beauty products and I’m looking forward to that box as well!

I also just received my regular BoxyCharm for February and will be reviewing that in a couple of days.

Do you get BoxyCharm or BoxyCharm Premium?  What did you get this month?




Karity Travel Chamber + Single Shadows Review


I recently received a lovely box of Karity products for my honest review.  You can see my review of Karity’s 15 Nudes & Rudes palette here.

Today, I want to share Karity’s cool Travel Chamber ($12 USD) that can hold up to 9 single eye shadows and 9 fun singles shadows.

Here’s the empty palette:


This is really easy to fill and it a very portable size, which is perfect for travelling.  It’s heavy duty cardboard and closes magnetically.  It has a nice little mirror, too.

Here are the shadows:


I received some very bright shades with a few neutrals.  They are $4 each on Karity’s website.  Here are the shadows inside the palette:


The shades from left to right, starting in the first row are:

One Night Stand (Satin) — Soft gold peach with pearl satin

Confidential (Frost) — Rich cocoa lustre

Unspoken (Velvet) — Dark brown velvet

Baby Habit (Metallic)  Bright pink with icy shimmer frost

Bamba (Matte) — Bright mint green matte

Amoeba (Frost) — True blue with icy shimmer frost

Sanguine (Matte) Vivid bright yellow matte

Viper (Frost) — Vibrant golden green with yellow shimmer frost

Spring Break (Matte) — Vivid pinky orange matte



The colors swatch well and are highly pigmented.  I especially love the first 4 shades because I will wear them a lot.  The last 5 are unusual for me.  I can see accenting my look with one.  I like the blue in the middle, the teal next to it, and the coral on the end.  I have played around with them and the blend really well and there’s not a lot of kick up in the pan, even though they are really velvety.

I can see myself switching out a few of these for some more neutrals, but the shades I was sent are so much fun to play with!

Karity shadows are very high quality for the price.  I would definitely recommend picking up a few of the shadows to try or purchasing a palette.

Have you tried Karity?  What do you think?

Karity 15 Nudes & Rudes Palette


I received a Karity 15 Nudes & Rudes palette in the mail a couple of months ago.  I’m thinking that it was for my honest review, but I don’t know who sent it!

I am so happy that I received it, though!  The eye shadows are creamy and very well pigmented.  The palette is $25.  Which is pretty affordable for the quality.   I also received a Travel Chamber, which is like a Z-palette and holds 9 eye shadows.  And I received a colorful selection of single shadows.  I will be reviewing that next week.  I haven’t put it together yet, but I am looking forward to playing with it!


This Nudes & Rudes palette consists of 15 highly pigmented shades in 6 finishes: 5 frost, 3 satin, 2 matte, 2 velvet, 2 metals, 1 duochrome  (Pixiedust on the bottom). It is cruelty free, vegan and paraben free.  There is also a 9 shade and a 21 shade Nudes & Rudes.
Every Nudes & Rudes palette has its own unique colors which just makes me want all of them!
This comes with a mirror, which makes me very happy!


These are creamy shadows, especially the more shimmery shades.  Here are my swatches:
IMG_0108 From left to right — In the nude, Tiffanie, Tongue Tied, Butterscotch and Princess.
IMG_0118 Moonlight, Good Witch, Sunkissed, Decadence, Centaur
Newborn, Pixiedust, Rockstar, Persephone, Dark Side.
I’m always more of a fan of the shimmery shades than mattes, but I do like to use mattes in my crease and sometimes on my lid. My favorites are probably Tiffanie, Good Witch and Pixiedust. In the nude is a great base shade and Moonlight is a gorgeous highlight.  The other shades add a really nice depth to whatever look I’m going for.
I was really impressed with this palette.  It may be nudes, but they are not safe or boring.  I guess that’s where the rudes come in!
