As you may recall, I subscribed to Ipsy for over two years. (How could you not recall since I wrote about my glam bags every month 😉) I really looked forward to trying out the samples and loved getting my pink shiny envelope in the mail each month.
After a lot of going back and forth, I decided that I wanted to move on to something different. And boxy charm it is!
Here is what I got in my first box:
(I’m going to write about what I got in my box from my least to most favorite…)
Waterproof Gel Eyeliner by Bellapierre $15.00
Creamy, waterproof eyeliner for true definition that lasts all day. The liner glides on smoothly, and is formulated with pure minerals, natural waxes, and antioxidants-making them hypoallergenic and safe for all skin types.
You know how I feel about receiving black eyeliners in these boxes…That being said, this liner is just ok. Kinda stiff and waxy instead of smooth and creamy. At $15, that is a huge no thanks from me.
Face Paint by Aloette $35.00
Aloette’s Face Paint point is enriched with Jojoba esthers, vitamin E, and other essential oils that will heal and nourish the skin while providing long-lasting, dewy color to the cheeks and lips.
This is a really beautiful shade, but I’ve never really enjoyed cream blush products. Probably because I am just not good at applying them…I’ve worn it on my lips a few times, but don’t really love the shade on my lips. I may pass it along to someone else who might use it.
Pro Eyelashes by PÜR The Complexion Authority $14.00
PÜR’s 3D lashes are handcrafted with the finest luxury silk to provide ultra-lightweight, natural-looking, fuller lashes. These cruelty-free lashes are durable, reusable, and safe for contact wearers.
These lashes are beautiful. Personally, I don’t ever wear false lashes, and I don’t own any lash glue…so I can’t actually apply these. But none the less, they are gorgeous.
Rainforest Of The Sea: Volume II by Tarte $36.00
Crease-free eyeshadow palette with the best-selling creamy powder formula in eight, cool-toned shades.
While these shadows are gorgeous, they are definitely not for a beginner. They have a strange creamy texture. While perfect for the lid, they don’t really blend well in the crease. I have found that applying each shade using my fingertips makes the shadows apply much better. The golden shade is gorgeous as an over the entire lid shade.
MODA Pro 3-Piece Brush Set by Royal & Langnickel $26.00
This MODA Pro 3-piece brush set, features a pointed blush, chisel blender, and a crease brush. These brushes will achieve endless looks and can be used with both wet and dry products.
I have used these brushes every day since receiving them. I’ve been using the largest one to apply bronzer and powder. With a unique curve design, this flat dense brush can be used to apply highlight, but I have been using it to contour my cheekbones. The thin one is my new favorite crease brush. It is so soft and versatile.
For now, I am only planning on getting Boxy Charm for three months. We’ll see how things go because the first box I got is awesome, I may be wanting to continue my subscription past the three months.
Do you get BoxyCharm? Do you get any other monthly subscription bags/boxes that are worth trying out? Let me know in the comments below.
