Hello, BoxyCharm! October 2017 Box

boxy charm hello charmer! |

Once again, I’m so happy that I made a switch from ipsy to Boxy charm!  The boxes are more expensive, Boxycharm is $21/month/box instead of $10/ month/bag.  Boxy Charm has 5 full-sized products instead of 5 sample sized.

October’s theme is Spellbound.  I love that they include a card with the product’s info and pricing on it.Boxy Charm October 2017 Spellbound |

Here is what I got in my third box: (I’m going to write about what I got in my box from my least to most favorite…)

tarte lip paint Boxy Charm October 2017 Spellbound |

Tarte Tarteist Quick Matte Paint  $20.00

Product Description: A full coverage, transfer-proof liquid lipstick with a quick-dry matte finish

I absolutely love Tarte, it is probably one of my favorite brands… I do not love these Quick Matte Paint Liquid Lipsticks. I already own one of these in the shade Birthday Suit. It is supposed to be a velvet finish, which means it never fully dries down.  Despite not drying the formula makes my lips feel dry while wearing it.

Also, in my opinion, the shades in the Boxycharm boxes are either way too pale, or too orange and brown.  No matter which shade I could have gotten they all seem not good for my skin tone.  I got the shade Get It, which is described as an apricot nude. It appears to be a light orange in the tube. I’m not even planning to open it or swatch it.  Maybe I can find someone else that it’ll work for, it’s definitley not for me.
Jonteblu Boxy Charm October 2017 Spellbound |
Jonteblu Lip Liner Pencil $5.00

Product Description: The creamy, highly pigmented formula glides on effortlessly. Can be used for flawless lip contouring, worn alone, or as a long-lasting base for any lip color.

Not really my favorite type of item to receive, but it is a nice formula and a decent neutral brown shade.  I received the shade spice, a medium brown shade.

Dirty Little Secrets Eyeshadow Chubby Weight: 3g $14.00

Product Description: This creamy consistency allows you to use it alone as an eyeshadow, or as an eyeshadow base. Bronze eyeshadow crayon with golden undertones. Can be used alone, as a base, or as a highlighter.

The shade is a pretty sparkly translucent peachy pink bronze. The formula is soft and creamy. I have been using it as an eyeshadow base before applying my lid shade.  It isn’t the type of thing I would ever wear on its own because, let’s face it, even on my “no makeup” makeup days, I still wear a complete eye look.

becca highlighter Boxy Charm October 2017 Spellbound |

Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter Weight 0.28 oz $38.00

Product Description: Best-selling creamy highlighter powder that will light up the features you love with a high-shine finish.

People were going nutso because this full-sized $38 Becca highlighter was included in the boxes. This pressed highlighter is very finely milled and the golden shade is very pretty. I don’t wear highlighters very often but for a little, added glow, I have been reaching for this one recently.  It can easily be as subtle or built up to be as knock out as you want it to be.  If I were head over heels for highlighters, I would definitely be excited about getting this one.

Dr Brandt Boxy Charm October 2017 Spellbound |
 dr. brandt PoreDermabrasion Size: 2.0 oz. / 60 g$58.00

Product Description: Pore-perfecting technology at your fingertips, with a professional-grade micro-crystal solution, that instantly deep-cleans and refines pores.

I had received a sample size of this DR.Brandt Pore Dermabrasion in another subscription box.  I enjoyed it so much that I considered paying the $58 to buy the full size.  I’m glad that I waited, and I’m glad that I received this in this box for $21 without having to pay almost $60 for it.

Originally, I was only planning on getting Boxy Charm for three months,  I have loved everything so much so far that I signed on for another three months… No one is surprised I’m sure.

Do you get BoxyCharm?  Did you get something different than I did? Do you get any other monthly subscription bags/boxes that are worth trying out? Let me know in the comments below.
