Unboxing BoxyCharm, December 2017

Price: $21.00 USD (+$5.00 shipping to Canada)
Number of items: 4-5 full-size items

Boxycharm is a monthly subscription box of full-size makeup, skincare and beauty tools. The theme for this month is “Glitz & Glam”. This is obviously a holiday-centric theme but I like that you can pretty much create a whole look with the items I received.

As a quick update, I subscribed to BoxyCharm earlier this year and originally only thought I’d stick to a three-month subscription. It’s been some time and I’m really loving the box! It’s approx $33.00 when converted to CAD (with shipping) but I love the value of the box and I’ve been able to share or gift a lot of the items. I’m likely to stick with the subscription for a while.

Prices are in American Dollars, converted to Canadian at the end

RealHer Blush Kit
Retail Price: $32.00 USD

This is the third time I’ve received RealHer products in my box but I do like the brand so far so I’m happy to get this blush trio.

Beaute Basics Bronze Essentials
Retail Price: $39.95 USD

I was excited about this bronzer until I opened it up and noticed the large strips of glitter. The card from BoxyCharm reads that you can use the pans individually or together.

I like to use a big fluffy brush for bronzing so I’m not sure how well I’ll be able to only use it individually. I’ll give this a try to decide if I might be able to use it but I honestly see this as being something I’d use on my eyes instead.

Makeup Geek Showstopper Creme Stain
Retail Price: $12.00 USD
BoxyCharm Dec 2017_LBL (5)

I love receiving Makeup Geek in my BoxyCharm because I wouldn’t buy it on my own. This is a pretty nude that I would wear myself but I know my sister might like it better so I’m going to pass this along to her.  I’m not sure what the shade name is because it’s nowhere on the packaging.

Tarte Tarteist Lash Paint Mascara
Retail Price: $23.00 USD
BoxyCharm Dec 2017_LBL (8)
I love this mascara and I already have one that’s almost empty so I’m beyond excited to have a new one. This has a rubber brush tip and I like it for fanning out my lashes.

Vintage Cosmetics Illuminating Face Highlighter in Rose Gold
Retail Price: $32.00 USD
BoxyCharm Dec 2017_LBL (4)

I’m in love with the packaging on this product. It’s a heavy duty white plastic with gold detail. It’s so elegant. The highlighter itself is pretty and would work with my skin tone I just think it’s very glittery. I might not use this as a highlight but I think it would work for me as a blush topper or over the lids.

My Thoughts
This box is OK from BoxyCharm. Usually, I’m wowed by everything and this time around I’m feeling so-so. I was hoping that with it being the holidays I’d get something more sparkly or a lip colour that was more festive. I am very happy with the mascara, highlighter and blush set so there are some redeeming elements in this box. Total Retail value: $138.95 USD ($178.77 CAD!)

Did you get BoxyCharm this month? What was in your box?

Lots of Love,
Dal

  1. This month isn’t as impressive as it normally is! But you did get a few useful items which is always good! The blush palette looks really pretty! I like muted blushes as well so I don’t go overboard and can just build up the colour if I like.
    I don’t like palettes set up like that bronzer one with the strips, and I don’t like glittery bronzers either so I wouldn’t enjoy that product.

  2. Oooh the blush kit looks really pretty. Definitely KEEP for yourself! 😉
    Getting a full sized mascara is pretty exciting.
    I’ve not paid much mind to Boxycharm before but this box is really good (even if you weren’t wow’d).

  3. Girl I’m flying through your posts I’ve missed so much haha! I switched from ipsy to boxy in November and have to admit I’m kind of underwhelmed at times too. Tho their products really can be nice 😍 I completely agree with the bronzer comment and I’m jealous you got the pretty vulgar highlight!

    • haha! Well, I’m glad you’ve found me again!

      The boxes are either amazing or OK. It’s always a good value and I can use all the items I was just tired of seeing repeats (bronzers, highlighters) For what Ipsy and Boxycharm cost with the exchange rate to Canadian and shipping I still like Boxycharm over Ipsy but I wouldn’t mind switcing it up again.

      The Vintage highlighter is really pretty. I actually wear it quite a lot!
