I discovered Boxycharm from a friend that ditched Ipsy for Boxycharm. The price point is a little higher ($21/month versus $10/month). However, with Boxycharm you receive ALL FULL SIZED PRODUCTS. That is right, you receive 4 to 5 full sized products that total over $100 in value! Honestly, they have been closer to the $150 range in my boxes.
I have received four boxes so far and they have all contained a palette as well (blush, eyeshadow, and highlighter). Not every box will contain a palette, but most do.
Here is what I received for February:
Naked Cosemetics Holographic Highlighter Palette (MSRP: $39.99)
|Swatches of the highlighter, as you can see the colors are very light|
-Cover FX Shimmer Veil (liquid cream eyeshadow) (MSRP: $28)
-Vintage Cosmetics Smokey Eye Pencil (MSRP: $21)
Sugar and Lemon Moisturizing Lip Buffer (MSRP: $24.00)
-Crown Pro Trio Brush Set (MSRP: $29.99)
TOTAL MSRP VALUE: $142.98
$142 worth of makeup for $21! The highlighter palette isn't something I would normally buy, but I am really loving playing around with it. The colors are faint and blend well. I have used it on my cupids bow, cheeks and eyes. The CoverFX shimmery liquid eyeshadow is my favorite from this box. While I am not normally a fan of pink eyeshadow, this one has so much purple, silver and glitter in it that it is gorgeous when applied to my eyes. I love the way it goes on quickly and easily without creasing. I have plans to buy other colors. The Crown Pro brushes are really great quality and will definitely be used.
I adore lip scrubs (especially at this time of year!), but I hate the price tag on them. So, I was really excited to receive this Sugar and Lemon buffer. Lemon is even my preferred flavor. The only thing I don't love is the eyeliner pencil. It is a little too clunky for me. I prefer my eyeliner to be liquid and precise. With that being said, it does get into the little nooks around your eyelashes well. I think I may apply it there, wipe of the excess and apply my liquid to the eye itself next time I use it.
I am really happy I discovered Boxycharm. It is certainly worth the money every month. Even if I dislike one or two products, I am still getting my money's worth. Last month I received a full size Dr. Brandt Illuminating Primer that is now my favorite. I also believe it costs more than my entire box last month.
Do you have Boxycharm? What other subscription boxes do you have? I still have Ipsy and Sephora Play as well, but I am trying to decide which one to cancel. What are your thoughts?
