Boxycharm for January 2016 is all about eyes

Boxycharm January EYES ON 2016

Boxycharm January EYES ON 2016

BOXYCHARM couldn’t have picked a better theme than EYES ON 2016 in my opinion. I’m all about the eyes, I could even write a song about it – but then you’d get tired of me! There are several things I like about my subscription to Boxycharm

* It’s $21 a month complete

* They only put in full size products

* There are usually 4 or 5 products per box

* You get a great value for the money. This month’s box adds up to $109 (MSRP) which isn’t too shabby!boxycharm jan insideWell now, what do we have here? I spy 4 full size pieces that are all about eyes!

BLINC MASCARA AMPLIFIED

Blinc Mascara Amplified

If you haven’t tried Blinc Mascara before the first thing you need to know is that it’s a tube mascara. Actually it was the first tube mascara I ever tried and I loved it. Over the years I haven’t had an opportunity to use this again so that makes this a pleasure to find in my Boxycharm. Even better is that this is the new improved version. With Amplified you have the capability of applying as many coats as you want (that wasn’t possible with the original). When you remove this mascara, with water by the way, you’ll find little spider legs on your face. It doesn’t remove like a typical mascara, the tubes slide off without taking lashes with it. I haven’t opened this since I have too many mascaras in use but I am anxious to use it and see if it’s as good as I remember. ($26)

STARLOOKS LUXE LONGWEAR EYE LINER PEN

I admit that I complain about boxes containing black eyeliners but I’m going to make an exception for this black LIQUID eyeliner pen. I do love liquid liners especially when they are in pen form with a sturdy pointy tip. I prefer a thin liner but sometimes you just need a little more oomph and this should provide that. According to the directions you can smudge it too when you first apply. ($19)

ROYAL & LANGNICKEL [R]EVOLUTION BRUSH SET

Royal & Langnickel [R}evolution Boxy Charm Eye Set (top BX-85, BX-95, BX-90)

This set was put together for Boxycharm but the brushes are sold individually. When I’ve been to IMATS it has always amazed me to see the lines at the Royal & Langnickel tables. These well made yet inexpensive brushes are hits there. Any of the big makeup shows sell these at great prices. The value of the set according to Boyxycharm is $24 but the brushes are often on sale. The [R]evolution brushes are 100% Vegan yet they feel like natural hair. In this set is the BX-80 DETAIL, BX-90 CREASE, and BX-95 DETAIL SMUDGER. These are 3 essential brushes for me and it’s a nice addition to find in this month’s box.

COASTAL SCENTS REVEALED SMOKY EYESHADOW PALETTE

Of course there had to be eyeshadows – what would EYES ON 2016 be without a palette? Coastal Scents Revealed Smoky Palette is a 20 shade palette with all the shades you need to have a smoky eye. There are medium to dark shades with just a few light ones. The palette contains mostly matte, satin and lightly shimmery shades with a few glittery ones thrown in to up the wow factor.

There are 4 Revealed palettes from Coastal Scents. I have one from Boxycharm, used another from Boxycharm in a giveaway, and now here’s my third one. They list the value as $39.95 but it’s actually always on sale for $19.95. This is a semi-dupe of all the expensive Smoky palettes like Urban Decay’s. I can see myself getting a lot of use from this by just adding in a few lighter shades from my collection.

  6. This is a nice box and a great value! All the products sound great!

  7. Love the shades in the Coastal Scents palette. So pretty! And the brushes look great. They only thing I’d pass on is the tube mascara. I bought the Calvin Klein tube mascara a couple of years ago, and nope, not for me. Those weird tubes creeped me ought. I guess that says more about me than the mascara, lol

  8. This looks like a really nice box! I’ve unsubscribed from all the monthly boxes I used to get because I didn’t feel like they were worth it, but this one sounds great!

  9. I haven’t used Blinc mascara in eons but I really need to get it again. It’s so good!

  15. Epic box! They’ve sent you everything – a whole palette, all the brushes the eyes need, Liquid liner (HURRAH – no pencil) and a mascara. Other boxes ought to learn from this one.

  16. What a nice box. I’ll use/wear everything in it

  17. Blinc is the only mascara that I will wear. Anything else ends up on my face!

  18. I keep meaning to sign up for this, and I’m mad I didn’t before this month! I love the Revealed palettes, though I don’t have this one or 3 yet. I have a few Royal and Langnickel brushes, and I really like them. The one with the long bristles is one I have, and it’s pretty unique, but I like it. Great box!
