Boxyluxe Unboxing

Hey everyone! I want to tell you about the products I received in the very first Boxyluxe! The box is $50 and it is a quarterly subscription. You can sign up for the regular BoxyCharm and that is $21 a month.

The first product I am going to tell you about is the one I was waiting for. The Tarte Park Ave Princess Palette. I have always wanted it and was super excited when I found out they were including it. It retails for $45. I love it. I have used it 4 times now.

The second product I was excited for was the Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Water. It is limited edition so I do not know how long it will be sold for. It retails for $32. I have used it multiple times already. My eyebrow makeup definitely stays on!

Third product was this nice head band that helps keep your hair out of your face when applying makeup. I am excited to try it. I do have a lot of baby hairs and they always get in the way. So, yeah I’m excited to try it. It is $4.99

I got a Sol de Janiero Glow Oil and it is $35. I wish this product would have come earlier. Would be better if used at the beach or on a sunny day. It is an illuminator. Smells good and leaves your skin shimmer like.

The R+Co Death Valley Dry Shampoo was my least favorite product I received. Made my hair so greasy. It was bad. I had to put it up in a ponytail! It was trial size so only $17.

The new Luxie 732 Airbrush Foundation Brush is simply amazing. Doesn’t leave any streaks like most of my foundation brushes. Soft to the touch. I will definitely take care of this one also because it is pretty expensive. It is $38. I personally would not spend that right now on a brush.

My next favorite product was really shocking to me. Juice Beauty Anti-Wrinkle Serum. First, the products feel so gentle on the skin. Dries quickly so you can add your moisturizer fast. Thicker than tarte H2O Mermaid Serum. What shocked me about this product is that it is $70! I was not expecting a $70 product to show up in this box!

The main reason I have kept BoxyCharm is that you almost always get an eyeshadow palette. This month I received the Pretty Vulgar Nightingale Eyeshadow Palette. It is $35. I have used this a few times and I like how all of the colors blend together.

Here is a product I was not impressed with. The Grande Cosmetics Liquid Lipstick. It was way too thick and I did a swatch on my hand for my youtube video and it did not come off. Not even with makeup remover. I would be worried to try this on my lips. Also, it is $25. I would not pay that much for the quality of this.

I got an eyeshadow brush trio from the brand Alamar. I love how BoxyCharm has been including this brand. If you go to their site you can see they only sell 2 products. The eyeshadow brushes are $18 and you get the fluffy brush, packing brush for shimmers, and a concealer brush. At least I use the one brush for concealer under my brows. They work very well and are very soft.

The last product I received was from the brand GirlActik. It is $26 and I have never heard of this brand until now. It is a highlight duo. Cream to powder, it seems to me. Very nice product. Applies easy and blends well. I did notice moisture build up. I am not sure how that even happened. It’s very sturdy and you could put it in your purse as well and use it as a compact mirror!
