What would you expect to find in an October Boxycharm subscription called Faces of the Moon? A little black maybe? After all it is Halloween month. If you don’t know about Boxycharm, it’s a monthly subscription that only sends full size products. At $21 a month you’ll more than get your money’s worth. For example this month’s box is valued at $137. You read that right. I spent $21 and received $137 worth of items. Granted not every product is one I’d choose for myself but as someone who just loves to hold BIZ giveaways, it gives me more to share.
Do you recognize any products in here? My guess is two or three are ones you could name.
Palmetto Derma Rejuvenating Antioxidant Mask ($64) is the big ticket item here and the biggest product in the box. If you follow Beauty Info Zone you know that I’m obsessed with masks. This is a relatively new obsession but one that’s fun to experiment with. Palmetto Derma Rejuvenating Antioxidant Mask is an herbal smelling clay mask. It doesn’t dry down completely on my face but it doesn’t stay wet either.
“The soft clay in this mask gently purifies the skin and cleanses pores by absorbing impurities. Its advanced antioxidants defend against free radicals to reverse daily skin damage while its cooling effect refreshes and soothes.” It’s recommended to use this for 15 – 30 minutes. As with all new skincare I start slow and then build up. While this isn’t my favorite mask it’s a nice change and I’m glad to find this in my subscription.
Doucce Punk Volumizer Mascara ($24) is a very interesting mascara and a perfect choice for October. I’ve received this before in a subscription and it’s in my current arsenal. If volume is what you want, volume is what you’ll get. The full brush adds extreme volume. It can be messy if you aren’t careful since most of us aren’t used to the Christmas tree shape that’s this large. (This brand new one will be in an upcoming giveaway, the open one is the one I’ve used.)
Lord & Berry Line/Shade Eyeliner ($18) is … let’s say it together … BLACK. I’m not sure why companies think we need a thousand black eyeliners but they do. The difference with this, according to Boxycharm, is that it’s formulated with kajal and kohl to provide rich, consistent color. It’s also said to be blendable and waterproof. I didn’t swatch it since I’d rather share than open one more black liner.
CULT Cosmetics Nail Polish in Boneyards ($12) is the perfect shade for October and the Faces of the Moon. It’s a great shade for Halloween and winter. “Boneyards is a versatile, mysterious polish. Enjoy waves of evening grey, whether you’re uptown, downtown, working a weekend or weekday look.”
I love Cult polish and have many in my stash. They wear beautifully on me so this dark grey is very welcome in my life.
Bellapierre Cheek and Lip Stain in Coral ($19.99) is a lightweight and oil free product. While the name is Coral, it’s more like a soft warm pink on me. Bellapierre is a mineral makeup brand. The other shade that Bellapierre created this in is a cool pink. The only negative for me about this is the size of the pot. I have a lot of trouble picking up product with my finger in something this size so a brush is a necessity. It’s easy to apply though and if my lips are primed I can wear this on them. I prefer it as a cream blush but sometimes you need to carry less around and this fits that need.
Have you caved to Boxycharm? It really is a bargain when you realize what you get. You can cancel anytime but that won’t happen if you don’t try it out. — Marcia
