February Boxycharm Review

Monday, February 19

Happy Boxycharm Day!! February's theme was "Galaxy Glow", which seems like a missed opportunity, if you ask me, but I ended up using all of these for a Valentine's Day lewk anyway!

Old News: Boxycharm is the absolute business when it comes to subscription boxes; 5+ full-sized products (quality brands, too!) for $20/month. It's really an insane value, for example, a Cover FX Shimmer Veil ALONE retails at $28! 


Here's what I got this month: 
Priya the Blog, Nashville beauty blog, February Boxycharm review, Boxycharm review, subscription service, Boxycharm, beauty buzz, beauty, subscription box, Cover FX Shimmer Veil in Amethyst, Naked Cosmetics Holographic Highlighter Palette, Vintage by Jessika Liebskind eyeliner, Crown Brush, Seraphine Botanicals Lip Buffer, beauty,
Here's the thing- I like my Wet n Wild Highlighter Palette a LOT more...and it's $15. This palette gives you a pretty neat spectrum of highlighters, but I found the formula to be somewhat chalky and glittery. I like my powder highlighters to have a really creamy base, if that makes sense.

CoverFX Shimmer Veil in Amethyst | $28
This is the stand-out of the month for me! Products like this kinda frighten me, but I wore this on Valentine's Day all over my lid and it wasn't gloopy and didn't crease. It is SO PRETTY, you guys! You can easily add this into a daily routine, with just a pop on your inner corner (tried that too and loved it!) I recently nearly ordered a very similar product from ColourPop and I'm so glad I didn't!

Vintage by Jessika Liebskind Eyeliner in Jet Black | $21
A black eyeliner pencil is like the equivalent of a little black dress. This pencil goes on so smoothly! I wore it one day with nothing else on my lid, and it really stayed put. The little product guide specifically references a smoky eye, and they weren't kidding- this eyeliner smokes SO easily, I couldn't believe it! Like, even my swatch below is effortlessly smoky.

Crown Brush Pro Brush Trio | $30
I'll rank these from ehh to excellent! The "small brush" (I think that's actually what it's called) is too small for blending concealer all over your face, but totally for spot concealing. The medium brush is similar to my all time favorite contouring brush by RealTechniques, and I liked it! I used it first for blending out a contour stick, which was not smart on my part, but it worked really well for a powder contour. I might give this to my sister because I really don't need two brushes that are so similar. I *love* the large brush, and it's perfect for setting your face! I didn't have a setting brush and recently purchased one, which further proves I need to stop buying make-up outside of Boxycharm because the Boxy god always hears my prayers!

Seraphine Botanicals Sugar + Lemon Moisturizing Lip Buffer | $24
The smell, purpose, and packaging (the tube comes in a bigger paper tube) is all spot on, but overall I still prefer my e.l.f. Lip Exfoliator stick, because this is kinda messy. I guess you're supposed to put it on and then wipe it off? I WILL say this is a nice deviation from a matte liquid lipstick.

TOTAL VALUE: $143 !
