A lil’ Boxycharm Review – May ’18 Edition

“Happy Birthday Boxycharm and thanks for the 6th product!”

Assuming everyone here knows what Boxycharm is, let’s move on with the review. Oh wait, you don’t know? Okay okay back it tf up then. Above is Boxycharm’s website, linked and waiting for your click! ~ and no, they have no idea who I am so if you click it’s not some shady way of making $$ lolz (seems to be what everyone freaks out about) ~

BUT – if you gander on their website you’ll see they are a monthly makeup subscription with 4-5 full sized products for $21/month (fee includes shipping – YAH BITCH). Pretty similar to Ipsy, but with full sizes as opposed to travel sizes. For anyone that might be interested, here was my last Ipsy review before switching to Boxycharm and in this post I explain why I made the jump.

Alright enough of that — on with the May 2018 BOXYCHARM REVIEW, HUH

  1. Pretty Vulgar Ink Gel Eyeliner in Black List – sold for $24
    I DID NOT EXPECT TO LOVE THIS THE WAY I DID. And I am not blowing smoke out my ass. I’m not even an eyeliner person! I don’t even know if it LOOKS GOOD on me! Yet this is the creamiest, smoothest lil’ potted eyeliner I ever did use. It is sooooo flippin’ easy to apply and looks matte and black. I am a huge fan and as long as it doesn’t dry out on me, (and if I ever use it all) I would definitely repurchase.
    Would I repurchase? Hellz yeah.
  2. CoverFX Blurring Primer – sold for $38
    Okay, I liked this, then I didn’t and then I did again.
    Final consensus: it’s gucci.
    For some reason, I thought it was drying at first. Looking back, I wonder if the beginning of the product was slightly dried out. Now that I am about 10 uses in, I like this primer a lot! I would compare it to the Benefit Porefessional as far as consistency. It does a great job at smoothing my pores and foundation/concealer apply beautifully on top of it.
    Would I repurchase? This is tough. I have been using the Soap & Glory One Heck of a Blot primer and loving it as equally if not more. For that reason, I don’t think I’d spend $38 to repurchase this one.
  3. Beauty Creations Matte Lipgloss in Kiss Me – sold for $4.99 but says $10 on Boxy’s website #confusing


    This was… also #confusing. Matte. Lipgloss. Contradicting and also mutually exclusive. This was so sticky. Once you put it on, it definitely wasn’t going anywhere. But oh.. so sticky. If I am putting on a matte lipstick, I at least want to be able to go out and enjoy my night. If you’re looking for lasting color over comfort, this is for you.
    The color is gorgeous, I must say. And once it tries down baby she’s transfer-proof! So I’d say it’s up to your preference – however, an easily accessible comfortable drugstore liquid lippie for $4.99 is also the Wet n’ Wild cat suit lipsticks.
    Would I repurchase? Pass.

4. PUR Cosmetics – The Sculptor Palette – sold for $30

img_20180607_1741103258878133412277148.jpg
This makes a great staple eyeshadow palette for anyone whose complexion is not deep enough to use this as a contour kit. However, I could probably find all of these shades in my collection and don’t need to spend $30 for this palette alone.
Granted, the highlight is G O R G E O U S and the pans are huge, so if these shades work for you – honey the quality is there.
Would I repurchase? Nah – as I have these shades elsewhere.

5. & 6. Aesthetica Pro Brush Series ($45) and Face Brush ($27)

img_20180607_1739379038548380656868711.jpg

These brushes are nice! I have tried the Fine Tipped Eyeliner Brush which works beautifully with the Pretty Vulgar gel eyeliner (no surprise there, I see what you did Boxy). The spoolie is nice – works like your typical spoolie would.
The Face Brush I actually like using best for bronzer! It’s a little on the flimsy side but I like how it builds up the color without overloading product onto your face.
Would I repurchase? The fine tipped eyeliner brush – yes. I love the way it applies gel eyeliner and I see myself using it over and over again.
The face brush – probably not as the E.l.f. flawless face brush is a good dupe for loose powder and my SOHO Pro Powder brush is queen of bronzer (only link I could find was to eBay – strange. I remember buying this at TJ Maxx). It’s just like.. not broke so why fix it, ya dig?

So that’s the May box! Thoughts? Suggestions? Questions? Lol. No but seriously this was a solid box and made for a good Instagram video ๐Ÿ˜‰

Let me know what you thought of these products if you’ve tried any!

Product Feature: Pretty Vulgar Make Them Blush

“I can’t get my hands off this blush.”

img_20180529_1222265173247806883322293.jpg

I have alternated between this Pretty Vulgar Make Them Blush (in hush blush) and just one other product since I received this in my March Boxycharm. Tbh, I am v thankful I didn’t receive the other shade of this product that was distributed, as that hot pink would not have done well for me and my pasty complexion.

The shade I received is hush blush and it. is. perfection. This is a medium-toned rose color that is very flattering and easy to blend out. I get home at 5:30 pm and still see this on my cheeks. It doesn’t fade and honey – IT ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป WILL ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป LAST ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป YOU.

img_20180529_1221412527039730904894142.jpg

Retailing at $26, I think the price is very fair. I have used itย almost every day for over two months and it’s not showing signs of hitting pan (as it shouldn’t). It is a beautiful color, blends easily for us beginners, and contains a lot of product. I will happily pay the $26 for this.

Would I repurchase? I think when I run out, yes! I really love it and it has become a staple item in my collection (as I sit in our beach house & it’s packed in my makeup bag upstairs). It is great quality and I tip my hat to Pretty Vulgar for making a *blushing* entrance into the world of cosmetics.

RECAP:

  • blends like a dream
  • medium rosey shade
  • decently priced
  • nice packaging & large quantity of product

Do I have any Boxycharm lovers out there? What were your thoughts on this blush – what shade did you get? Has anyone else tried this? Let me know your thoughts so I can ramble on some more about this!
