Two months of Boxycharm fun

During the winter holidays it was just too hard to fit in the fun items I’d been buying. Now that it’s calmed down I want to share two months worth of BOXYCHARM. It’s my favorite subscription and I always get my $21 worth. The main reason that I like to review subscriptions is so that you can get an idea of which one you’d want to buy. These two (December 2016 and January 2017) are prime examples of what Boxycharm offers. Be sure to read this whole review for a surprise….

DECEMBER BOX: “MAKEUP ON POINTE”

There were 3 versions of the December Boxycharm, below is what I received:

  • OFRA Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick in Napa Valley – $19.90
  • Pure Cosmetics Buff Collection Palette – $50
  • Butter London Nail Polish  in Ruby Murray – $15
  • The Original Mini MakeUp Eraser – $12
  • IBY Beauty Lip Liner in Rosebud –  $14
  • $111 total value

PURE COSMETICS BUFF COLLECTION PALETTE

This reminds me so much of Urban Decay’s Rose Gold palette and the rose gold one from Ulta. Since I have both of those already I’m debating whether to keep this or use it for an anniversary giveaway. It gets great reviews and the colors are beautiful.

BUTTER LONDON NAIL LACQUER in RUBY MURRAY

What’s not to love about butter LONDON? Fabulous brand and I haven’t had any new polishes from them in a long time. butter LONDON describes this as a deep berry cream.

MAKE UP ERASER MINI

I have the full size of this so I’m thrilled to have the mini especially for travel. The two sides are different textures and feel so good. Since it’s recommended to wash in the machine after each use it’s nice to have a second one. It does a great job especially if I have light makeup on.

OFRA LONG LASTING LIQUID LIPSTICK in NAPA VALLEY  & IBY BEAUTY LIP LINE in ROSEBUD

I haven’t used either of these mainly because the surprise is a giveaway at the end of this post. These aren’t my colors but my experience with both brands has been excellent. The look of the IBY Lipliner reminds me of Starlooks liners.

OFRA COSMETICS LONG WEAR LIQUID LIPSTICK in NAPA VALLEY

This is a beautiful purple that probably applies as a dark berry shade. Here’s what OFRA has to say about these lipsticks: “Our formula is a matte color formula but if you want to add some shine to your liquid lipstick try our revolutionary Lipgloss Stick. All shades contain antioxidants and Vitamin E while the formula provides a lightweight layer of lasting color to make you look stunning all day. Color will last in a perfect condition up to five hours without eating or drinking. For best results do not eat or drink for 15 minutes after applying.Please note that this is not a lip stain and does not dry completely but remains on your lips for hours!”

VINTAGE COSMETICS ILLUMINATING FACE HIGHLIGHTER SET  – in Rose Quartz/Chocolate Diamond

Love this! I’m so happy this is in my possession now. I’ve heard some great things about Vintage Cosmetics and received another product from them in an earlier box but it came broken. This highlighting set is perfection. Not too dark, not too light.

This has shimmer so I will only be using this at night but it’s not glittery. I love the light pink especially and the chocolate will give some dimension to my face.

SO SUSAN FAN BRUSH This is a great brush for two of the products in this month’s box. It’s a thin brush so it applies the color lightly. So Susan is a cruelty free brand and this brush is made of nylon and taklon. In the giveaway I’ll be giving away a Bellapiere fan brush since I was so excited about the So Susan and Highlighter that I used it instantly.

PUR MINERAL GLOW BRONZER

It’s a pleasure to get a product from PUR, a brand I use often. This is a medium toned golden bronzer that’s infused with anti-oxidants. It’s the kind of bronzer than can be used year round. Since I don’t wear bronzer very often this is also going to be part of the giveaway.

GORGE, AMAZING KONJAC SPONGE

GORGE Amazing Konjac Sponge
GORGE Amazing Konjac Sponge

It’s always great to have a new Konjac Sponge since it’s an item you actually either use up or toss after a few months. It’s an exfoliating sponge that is deep cleansing and pH blanced. You can use it on face and body. I like keeping one in the shower especially for my body.

ENGLISH LAUNDRY, POUR FEMME DELUXE ROLLER BALL

English Laundry, Pour Femme Deluxe Roller Ball
English Laundry, Pour Femme Deluxe Roller Ball

If you are a regular reader of Beauty Info Zone then you know I don’t wear perfume. Sometimes I’m tempted but I’m happy with certain fragranced body oils and use those instead. Therefore this is part of the giveaway. It’s not only beautiful but English Laundry says it’s a classic scent that’s sophisticated while smelling fresh.  “Inspired by classic country gardens, English Laundry’s charming blend perfectly melds top notes of rose geranium with a backdrop of woody spicy and musky notes. Bright, enticing and elegant. Signature opens with quince, complimented by white chocolate and jasmine petals at the heart. For a purely peaceful scent, notes of orris roots, powdery musk and sensual woods have been composed at the base.

I like this subscription service so much that I recently paid up front for 6 months. That saved me $10 overall. I’m sure I’ll have 6 more months of fun before I have to make another decision. So what’s your opinion of these two Boxycharm sub boxes?  —  Marcia
