November Boxycharm Review

Saturday, November 18

Happy beauty day! Last month I jumped back into the world of subscription services with my first Boxycharm. I was blown away by the total value of my first box, and got several amazing products, and well- this month's is even better! 

Boxycharm, as far as I know, is in a league of its' own, sending you 5ish FULL-SIZED products for about $20 a month. As you'll see below- the total price of the box is usually the cost of ONE product. Pretty sweet deal. 

If you're not into beauty products at all, or want to be, and don't know where to start- I can't recommend a subscription service enough! They're a fantastic way to try out a BUNCH of new products, and build up a nice little collection. I was subscribed to ipsy and Birchbox for a while (so many product reviews behind that link!) and now I'm just subscribed to Boxycharm and loving it, but don't take my word for it!

I frequently work out in the middle of the day and I'm always looking for ways to make my make-up last. I've used this setting spray a few times now, and while I can't say I've noticed a huge difference yet, I'm happy to use it all the same. Cover FX is a brand I've heard a lot about on YouTube, and this is a $31 product, cool! 

+ KNC Collagen Lip Mask (3) | Retail: $15
These fun little jelly masks promise to hydrate, moisturize, and plump your pout. Well, I tried one last night and looked like Effie Trinket! Did I notice any differences afterwards? Not really. Maybe right afterwards my lips looked slightly fuller, but that was gone by morning. Would I buy them for myself? Probably not. But I'm always down to try any method of pampering. 

+ Winkylux Kitten Palette | Retail: $25
This palette you guys! I was SO excited about this! Several of these shimmers are just plain gorgeous. I'm also in love with the color palette- perfect for a Fall eye look. You'll see in the swatches below that the mattes aren't the best (pretty chalky). However, that's outweighed by the fact that this palette is travel sized AND a mix of mattes/shimmers, which was a conundrum in the past (pack two palettes for one weekend? One matte and one shimmer? Just mattes? Just shimmers?) I've already created a couple looks with this and WILL be packing it for my Thanksgiving trip home. 

I was familiar with this brand, having received a couple "lip lubes" (not the best name, but the product is great- like a glossy crayon!) The color, smell, and formula initially (& that rose gold metallic tube- hello!) are all fantastic, but I didn't find that this lasted as well as a matte liquid lipstick, or even another matte lipstick.

My favorite blush and highlighter brush are both Luxie (via ipsy) so I was excited to try these! My travel brush "set" at this point is a bit haphazard, so it was so so perfect to receive a set of travel eyeshadow brushes (and with a travel sized palette, to boot. Genius!) These are not my favorite shadow brushes to use, but they are pretty dang cute and handy for traveling. 

COST ME: $20
TOTAL VALUE: $120 !

Followed by the cloud lips, and then the palette left to right starting with the top row. Could you DIE over that goldy shadow??

Once again I am SUPER impressed by the value of this box and the products in it! I said last month I only signed up for 3 months and planned to cancel... .... ...but I'm really diggin it.
