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.
March’s theme is Bae Cation.
I love that they include a card with the product’s info and pricing on it. This month’s products total $115.15 according to the card and $112.76 according to the prices listed on the Boxycharm site. (not sure why they are different on one vs the other?)
Each month there are usually a few product variations between the boxes that are sent out. This month there were five 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:
PÜR THE COMPLEXION AUTHORITY – EYESHADOW PALETTE $36.00
“This transitional palette can be used now or later to bring vibrancy back into your look. Our signature silky smooth ultra-mattes are paired with pretty pinks and a vibrant blue to lighten the mood. Plus, you can layer the shimmer shades for a duo chrome finish.”
This palette is beautiful! It swatches great. The majority of the shades in this palette are exactly what I would used on a daily basis. I have found that some of the shades on my eyes are not as intense. In my opinion, PÜR The Completion Authority (formerly known as Pur Cosmetics) is a great brand that doesn’t really get enough love in the beauty community.
PRETTY VULGAR – MAKE THEM BLUSH $26.00
“Make Them Blush powder blush awakens your complexion and provides a natural, glowy flush to your cheeks. This silky-smooth formula is long-wearing and highly pigmented. The buildable blush powder can be worn alone or paired for a multidimensional pop of color that will flatter any complexion.”
The packaging is beautiful! I love when makeup looks pretty as well as makes you look pretty. . I got the shade Hush Blush. It is a pretty peachy rose mauve shade. I’m glad that I got this shade instead of the other option which is a bright fuschia. This product is cruelty-free and gluten-free. The 8 vegan-friendly available shades include: Pretty Witty, Shameless Flirt, Tickled Pink, Hush Blush, Prim Vixen, and Charmingly Sinful.
SOUTH MANE BEAUTY – EYE GELS $9.00
“Our eye gels are great for an easy mask without the clean-up. They soften and moisturize to ensure that you look rested and refreshed!”
This is not my type of thing, I didn’t even open these to try, I’m going to give them to my sister.
THE VINTAGE COSMETIC COMPANY – SMOKEY EYE MAKEUP BRUSH SET $21.76
(not $21.75, but $21.76 😁)
“This brush set trio will enable you to create a stunning Smokey eye. Use subtle tones for a natural look, or bright and bold hues for a party look.”
The packaging is so cute! Each brush has a little saying on the handle “Step 1 for the money…Step 2 for the shadow…Step 3 go girl go”. I have so many brushes, I’m going to be passing these along to someone else as well.
BUTTER LONDON – DOUBLE DECKER LASHES MASCARA $20.00
“Get 200% thicker lashes in just one coat and a 314% increase in lash curl. The interlocking nylon fiber brush grasps each individual lash to lengthen, curl, and multiply lashes from root to tip.”
I’m so particular about mascara. I have found a winner and I’m sticking to it. I haven’t even opened this mascara so that I can pass it along to someone else.
This month’s box was kind of a dud for me. I am only using 2 out of the 5 products. Even still, the box costs $21 a month and the products that I will be using total $62 msrp. That being said…
I have really enjoyed receiving the boxes for the last 9 months, but I have decided to cancel my subscription for now. I have so much makeup in my collection that some of the things that I love get lost in the shuffle. I’m going to be focusing on appreciating the things that I currently own before I keep adding more and more. Despite the fact that I am canceling, I still highly recommend Boxycharm. It is a great way to build up your collection with amazing products at such a great price of only $21 a month.
What about you? 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.
