I have a feeling that if you love makeup and keep up with the “beauty community” you are already familiar with Boxycharm. But just in case you don’t know what it is…
Boxycharm is a $21/month/box beauty product subscription that includes 4-5 luxury and indie brand beauty related products. Instead of sample sizes like some other subscription boxes/bags, each month, Boxycharm has full sized products. It ships to both the US and Canada.Each month the value of the box is over $100. This month’s box has $126 USD worth of products in it. 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 MAC, Tarte, Cover Fx, Becca, Dr. Brandt, and Bare Minerals.
February’s theme is Galaxy Glow.
I love that they include a card with the product’s info and pricing on it. Each month there are usually a few product variations between the boxes that are sent out. This month there were three different possible boxes. I got variation 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:
CoverFX – Shimmer Veil shade Amethyst $28.00
“These multi-use, shimmering creme colors are crease-proof enough for the boldest of eye looks and formulated with a weightless finish for a shimmering effect anywhere on the face. Suitable for all skin types.”
This product is gorgeous! I love it! a little bit goes a long way and adds so much sparkle to the eyes! I’m such a sucker for sparkles!
Crown Brush – Pro Brush Trio $29.99
“Use this 3pc Pro Brush Trio to contour your face to perfection! The small brush can be used to conceal imperfections and highlight underneath the eyes. The medium sized brush can be used to sculpt the cheekbones and perimeter of the face. Finally, the large powder brush can be used to set everything in place.”
Ofra – Pop-up Palette + Blush Godet Refill $50.00 (variant item)“The Pop-Up Palette is perfect for any OFRA magnetic makeup godet. The palette holds up to 48 grams of product and items can be continually tailored according to personal preference. I was really excited to get this as one of the variant products! I don’t already have a popup palette, but I have wanted one for a while now. I’ll be putting this to good use!
“The Blush Godet offers strong pigment with a long-lasting effect in a fabulous pressed powder blush. Can be applied wet or dry.”The Boxycharm card says that the pop-up palette is $19 while the Ofra website has it listed for $21. Both site and card list the blush as $12. I’m not quite sure where the Boxycharm website gets the $50 it lists for the combined price? Maybe someone added incorrectly? Who knows…$12 and $19 combined for a total of $31.
Vintage by Jessika Liebskind – Eyeliner Pencil $21.00
“Jessica’s richly pigmented smokey eye pencil delivers intense jet-black definition! Creating pencil-point precision or smudgy, saturated color, the creamy-soft formula glides on lids without tugging or pulling.”
I would NEVER pay $21 for any wooden pencil eyeliner, this one included. What would a subscription box be though without its overly priced black eyeliner pencil?
PUR The Complexion Authority – X-Faux Lips: Plumping Lip Exfoliator $17.00 (variant item)“With an instant boost of shea butter, raw sugar, and exfoliating beads, this 4-in-1 lip scrub pencil exfoliates, plumps, hydrates and soothes. Using the shea butter to soften lips, while the raw sugar and exfoliating beads are used to buff away dead surface cells, it moisturizes the lips for a softer, smoother, more plum lip!”
Here are some of the variant products that some other “charmers” could have received…
Bellapierre – Shimmer Powder $15.00
Bellapierre – Cosmic Glitter $15.00
Naked Cosmetics – Holographic Highlighter Palette $39.99
Seraphine Botanicals – Sugar + Lemon – Moisturizing Lip Buffer $24.00
Makeup Geek – Full Spectrum Eyeliner $9.00
Beauty For Real – Eyeliner Pencil $14.00
I’m pleased with the version of products that I got in my box this month. Out of the available variation products, the only other item I would have liked to have received is the Seraphine Botanicals – Sugar + Lemon – Moisturizing Lip Buffer. Otherwise, I’m not really interested in the other items that were possible this month.
