When I first heard about BOXYCHARM I thought, oh great another subscription box that sends you samples. Then I found out you pay only $21/month and you get 5 full-sized beauty products. Mind blowing, right?! I have been a subscriber to Birchbox (hated it), Ipsy (didn’t like it), and Glossybox (no complaints). Currently, I am only subscribed to Boxycharm since it’s the only box that sends you full-sized items; you basically get triple for what you pay per month (each box is worth over $100).
First up, we have this Pur-lisse lip nourisher that can help moisturize your dry lips. It’s not like a cream or a balm but rather an oil, so a little bit goes a long way. I like to use this after scrubbing my lips in the shower or on top of a thick balm. Oils are usually meant to lock in moisture and if I feel like my lips are really really dry and I want to hydrate them overnight, I apply a thick balm and lock it in with this oily nourisher.
When I first applied this product on my lashes I thought it was just a mascara, but then I read that it was a lengthening and volumizing primer instead. But to be honest, you can totally use it as mascara. It kept my lashes curled all day, there was no fallout, and it is super black which I love. All you really need is a thin coat because it can get clumpy really quickly.
I am loving this buttery hand cream with subtle fragrant notes of musk & jasmine. It is kind of thick but penetrates into the skin fairly quickly, it smells AMAZING, and I love the simple chic packaging.
This loose eyeshadow is such a unique color and I love the lightweight and finely milled texture that makes it really easy to work with. I personally prefer using a glitter glue with loose pigments and shadows, just to ensure they stay on and I don’t have any fallout. I also like to apply the product with my fingers and press it onto my lids. The pressing technique keeps from having any clumps of shadow and it applies a more pigmented & even layer of product.
I have heard so much about these liquid lipsticks, so I was pretty excited to get this in the box. The formula is a cream, not a liquid, and it dries to a matte finish. This color in particular has micro specks of glitter that give a subtle sparkle. Note that if you apply more than 2 coats the lipstick will become very drying on the lips and extremely sticky, so stick to 1-2 thin coats. That should be easy since the lipstick is very pigmented and lasts a long time with no transfer.
That is it for my April Boxycharm unboxing 💁🏼
I truly LOVE this subscription box and I cannot wait to share my May goodies with you next month!
