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