November Boxycharm Review

Thursday, January 31

Hey beauties, let's talk about some make-up. It's a Boxycharm day!

If you're new around here, here's the scoop:

Boxycharm is a subscription service that sends you 5-6 (often more!) full-sized beauty products for $20/month. Products are mostly in the make-up category, but usually include one hair or skincare item. There's also a good mix of more affordable/indie brands and high-end brands (I've received products by Tarte, Kat Von D, Smashbox, Lorac, and Ofra, to name a few.) And I always say this, but every time, the retail value of ONE item covers the price of the entire box. It really is an amazing deal.

So this post is a little awkward because I'm behind on blogging about Boxycharm (hello, November box!) and I also no longer have an active subscription. But! I want to be clear that I cancelled my subscription solely because I am living in excess (+ as a part of my no-buy year), but I still stand by a Boxycharm subscription 100%, whether you're a beauty fanatic, or just starting to dabble.

Take a look at all my past Boxycharms right here.



Here's what I received back in November:
Priya the Blog, Nashville beauty blog, Nashville beauty blogger, November 2018 Boxycharm review, Boxycharm review, subscription service, Boxycharm November 2018, CoverFX Glitter Drops, Luxie Brushes, It Cosmetics Moisturizer, Ace Beaute Grandiose Palette, Jonteblu eyeliner, Lashaholic lashes, beauty reviews
+ ACE Beaute Grandiose Palette | retail value: $25
Ok, I'm going to rave about how much I love this palette. In my mind, it's pretty much the perfect eyeshadow palette. The colors are gorgeous and pigmented, and it includes not only neutral mattes for a simple every day look, but statement colors, AND shimmers. "Jasmine" is an infallible inner corner highlight, pop "Cinnamon" in your crease for a go-to everyday look, and I have been LOVING a cranberry smokey eye ("Rose" + "Poppy".) Both of the warm-toned shimmers are stunning. I used this palette all throughout the holiday season, and it even traveled with me! I daresay this is my favorite eyeshadow palette I've received in a Boxycharm.

+ It Cosmetics Secret Sauce Moisturizer | retail value (travel size): $20
I can't figure out why I received this - I'm guessing it's some sort of "please don't cancel" bonus? Anyway, this was the perfect little moisturizer to throw in my bag for my holiday travels. I've loved all the It Cosmetics products I've tried, and this is a super emollient moisturizer, a lot goes a long way!

JonteBlu Glittering Star Eyeliner | retail value: $5
This eyeliner is fun, though I don't feel like I have many occasions to wear eyeliner with silver glitter in it? This is evidenced by the fact that I own several pencils like this? Also the pencil itself is very scratchy. I would prefer a shimmer or metallic eyeliner, instead of one with chunks of glitter in it. Not my favorite.

+ Luxie Luminous Eyes Set | retail value: $30
Well this brush set is just darling, but not my favorite. Generally I like a much bigger/fluffier crease brush to blend my eyeshadow really well, and these are just too small. The one exception to this is (I thiiink) the 111 Mini Flat Angled (second from right), which is now my new favorite inner corner highlight brush.

+ CoverFX Glitter Drops in Nova | retail value: $44
This is a gorgeous/expensive product that can be used as a highlight, or an illuminator in your foundation or lotion. I'm most excited to mix this in with some body lotion, as I've been known to be very extra and wear shimmer lotion (and I've run out!) I can't imagine using this all over my face, and it was very intense/GLITTER as a highlight.

+ Lashaholic Instaglam Luxury Lashes | retail value: $15
I absolutely love this style of lashes! You can see in the picture that they are spikey, and looked extra glam and festive. I wore these to our office holiday party. These are reusable too, so I'll be able to wear them several more times. This is the third set of lashes I've received from Boxycharm, and they're one of my favorite things to get in a box!

TOTAL VALUE: $139 !!!

This was a pretty great box and I'll be honest, I've already gotten major FOMO seeing what has been included in the latest boxes.

As always, let me know what beauty products you are loving lately! Are you subscribed to Boxycharm or another subscription service? I'll live vicariously through you. Share in the comments below!
