Boxy charm is a$21/month/box subscription that includes 5 luxury and indie brand products. Instead of sample sizes like some other subscription boxes/bags, Boxycharm has full sized products. It ships to the US and Canada.
Each month the value of the box is usually over $120. It is a great way to try out different higher priced brands without spending a lot of money. I’ve received products from brands such as Tarte, Cover Fx, Becca, Dr. Brandt, and Bare Minerals.
December’s theme is Glitz and Glam.
I love that they include a card with the product’s info and pricing on it. There are usually a few product variations each month between the boxes that are sent out. This month there were three different possible boxes. I got box number one, as indicated by the number 1 in the lower right-hand corner of the info card.
Here is what I got in my box this month:
bellápierre Cosmetics – Pro Concealer Palette $29.99
“BelláPierre’s professional color correcting concealer palette is formulated with rich creamy good for your skin ingredients. Helping create a flawless healthy complexion.”
Thankfully I don’t usually need to color correct my skin, so I’m not into this at all. I would never pay $30 for this, but the box is still a great value despite this being a giveaway product for me. It smells exactly like a box of crayons.
FYI: Orange is great for masking dark circles under the eyes. Green is helpful for diminishing redness, and the purple shade is supposed to help to give brightness to the skin. Remember that if you color correct, you need to have really good high coverage foundation and concealer as well.
Crown Brush – Deluxe Blush Brush $12.00
“With super soft, dense synthetic bristles, this brush can be used with both powder and cream blushes, and provides medium to full coverage for a more dramatic finish.”
It is incredibly soft, but a bit dense to be used as a blush brush. It is still a great brush that I’m sure I will be using for something else.
tarteist™ lash paint mascara $23.00
“A jet-black mascara that has a molded brush that grabs and coats even the tiniest lashes for 2700% more volume.”
Ummm, 2700% more volume? Is that even a measurable amount.
I’m not really a big fan of the brush on this mascara. It is the type that has the stiff plastic bristles. I love tarte! It is probably one of my top 5 all-time favorite makeup brands. The packaging is super sleek! I can’t decide if I love or hate this mascara…when I first put it on my lashes look amazing! Then as the day goes on it just kinda disappears. I don’t know where it goes? It doesn’t flake or smudge, it just vanishes. At work the other day, I looked into the mirror and it looked as if I forgot to apply mascara to my lashes. I was not happy about that! Has anyone else used this mascara and had that happen?
RealHer Blush Kit $32
“Treat your cheeks to a multi-dimensional, natural flush with this RealHer Blush Kit- Be Fearless, Be Limitless”While I personally don’t own anything else from the brand Real Her, I know that they have included products in past Boxycharm boxes. I don’t know how popular this brand is because through Boxycharm is the only other time that I have heard of them.This blush kit features 3 shades: sparkly pink-fearless, matte peach-limitless, and shimmering bronze-unstoppable. They are not very pigmented, but can be built up. So if you are someone that doesn’t like a lot of blush, these would be great fo you!
Pretty Vulgar – My Lips Are Sealed Lightweight Liquid Lipstick $24
“A highly pigmented liquid lipstick that provides a radiant metallic finish, nice comfortable creamy texture, and a citrus cordial flavor.”
Pretty Vulgar has some gorgeous packaging! I feel like their prices are a bit high, but that being said…I’m almost considering buying another one of these liquid lipsticks and I usually hate liquid lipstick.I have fallen madly in love with this My Lips Are Sealed lightweight liquid lipsticks. I have the shade 105 Weeping Willow. It’s a beautiful rosy bronze shade. The formula is so awesome and comfortable. These are available in 8 shades at SephoraOriginally, 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. This is my 5th Boxycharm Box, one more to go. Not sure if I am going to continue after January, I am thinking about trying out FabFitFun next. I’ll keep you posted!

Did you get a Makeup Geek lipgloss?
I got some different items in my box this month. I have the same blush and mascara but I got a different lip gloss and no brush. I really like your items!
