I never really got into the highlight and contour craze although I did try it out on the blog at one time. If you want to read that post you can here. I’m going to save this palette because I can probably use the lighter shades to set my makeup and the darker shades in lieu of bronzer. I do like the shades here and the thin and sleek packaging.

Although I do appreciate the attempt to add a tool that can be used with the palette that was sent in this box I really think this brush is just a bit big on my face to use for contouring. As you might have seen in my previous posts I really love these types of brushes for foundation so I’ll use it for that instead. This brush is super soft and nicely packed. It really puts the ones I’ve been picking up from Amazon to shame! I also love that this came with a cover to protect the brush head.

The BrowGal Convertible Brow
Retail Price: $35.00 US

I swear of heard of BrowGal before, I wonder if I’ve received any of their products in other boxes. I used to only use brow powders when I first got into doing my eyebrows so I’m actually looking forward to using this. I like that you can add a little water to this too to give it more of a pomade texture.  I also like that Boxycharm included the The BrowGal Brow Brush, this one is $14.00 US. I always love having extra brow brushes and mascara wands laying around to use on my brows.

Temptu Liquid Glow 
Retail Price: $29.50 US

Oh I love this pearl highlighter! This was made in collaboration with Boxycharm and the highlighter can be used all over the face for luminous complexion or just on the high points of the face. You are supposed to apply this with your fingers. I’ve actually been using my liquid highlighters all over the face and then dotting concealer where I need it to give me a more dewy, vibrant look for the spring. Highlighter is a hard product for me to finish up because you only need a little but this technique lately is making them multi-purposeful.

My Thoughts
This month feels like we are covering the basics which include contouring, highlighting the face and sculpting the brows. I love that Boxycharm included tools that they hoped could be used with the products they sent. Very useful for someone who may not have a large collection of brushes. I’m REALLY happy with everything I received! Total Value of this month’s box: $143.49 US or $196.79 CAD!! WOW!

Did you get Boxycharm this month? What did you think of the items?

Lots of Love,
Dal
