March Boxycharm Review

It's Boxycharm day!! The theme for this month was "Bae-cation" (cute) and the bright, fun picks totally went along with that. 

In case you haven't heard - I just can't quit Boxycharm, the subscription service that sends you 4-5 (or...9) full-sized products a month for $20! If you're on the fence, like I always say, typically the retail value of ONE product covers this entire price of the box. And! There's no more waiting list! Check out all my past Boxycharm reviews, here.

The spoils from this box:
Priya the Blog, Nashville beauty blog, Nashville beauty blogger, Boxycharm, Boxycharm review, Boxycharm March review, subscription service review, beauty review, PUR x Boxycharm Eyeshadow palette, The Vintage Cosmetic Company Smokey Eye Makeup Brush Set, Pretty Vulgar Make Blush Powder Blush in Prim Vixen, South Mane Beauty Revitalizing Under Eye Gels, Butter London Double Decker Lashes Mascara,
PÜR x Boxycharm Eyeshadow Palette | retail value: $36
This eyeshadow palette is beautiful just to look at, and I've been pleasantly surprised by how easy it's been to create some super trendy eye lewks with it. So far I've done a peachy-toned smokey eye, which is like, the thing right now I think, and even dipped into that bright fuchsia. I tried out the shade "Alliance" yesterday which is an shimmery olive greenish-gold that is SO pretty and unusual. I think this will be my go-to palette this Spring and Summer! Bonus- it has a mirror!

The Vintage Cosmetic Company Smokey Eye Makeup Brush Set | retail value: $21.76
I love it when Boxycharm sends me products and their corresponding brushes! This little brush set includes a flat shadow brush, an angled crease brush, and a smokey under-eye brush. My favorite has to be the angled crease brush - it's been awesome for playing with all those fun matte shades in the palette! Also the packaging/branding of this company is adorable.

Pretty Vulgar Make Blush Powder Blush in Prim Vixen | retail value: $26
I'm not afraid of a bright blush, but this one has ZERO chill. It is literally hot pink. I think the alternate color people received was a dusty rose (similar to the Wet n Wild blush in Mellow Wine, that I looove), which sounds a lot more wearable. This has to be applied with a VERY light hand, I've messed it up several times! I don't see myself using this very much.

South Mane Beauty Revitalizing Under Eye Gels | retail value: $9 (for 3 pack)
Products like this (and in the past, these lip masks, etc.) are always fun to receive and try out, but I can't say I ever really notice a benefit. These under eye masks are supposed to reduce puffiness, dark circles, and moisturize. I tried them out with my boyfriend last night. He is very into skin care (and has the most beautiful skin of any man I've ever met) SO I was very interested to hear his take. He said, "Well, when I took them off, they looked like my kidneys? I felt refreshed and like the skin under my eyes was less tight." My under eyes felt moisturized this morning, but otherwise, I don't think they did much. Still, like I said, it's always fun to try something new.

+ Butter London Double Decker Lashes Mascara | retail value: $20
This mascara boasts some stats that are a bit eye-roll inducing (200% thicker lashes in one coat! 314% increase in lash curl!) but I do actually really like it. When you're rushing out the door (me, always) nothing is worse than a mascara that takes several coats and minutes to build up. This mascara makes my lashes look much thicker after just one coat! Because it's so thickening, it can also get clumpy pretty fast, but otherwise, I'm a big fan! Plus who even knew Butter London made mascara?

TOTAL VALUE: $112.76!! 

I think overall, this is one of the best Boxycharms I've received so far. Check out my past reviews, here! Let me know if you got something really good in the mail this month!!
