Unboxing BoxyCharm, November 2018

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 “Goal Digger”. It’s a really fun play on gold digger and I love how all the products have gold packaging or gold theme. I’m super excited about what is inside. 

All Prices in USD converted to Canadian at the end.

CoverFX Glitter Drops in Nova
MSRP: $44.00 USD

How about this for gold! I have always drooled over the CoverFX Glitters and I’m so happy to get this in my box. It’s a very intensely pigmented product. I think this would make a really pretty body glitter or used as a highlight on the cheeks or eyes. I think I can find a lot of use for this.

These drops offer multi-dimensional glitter that create a high impact, reflective finish. You can use this alone, under or over makeup or mixed into foundation.

I can imagine this product lasting me a really long time. I think it would be really pretty over the shoulder for a cute little holiday party.

Ace Beauty Grandoise Palette
MSRP: $24.99 USD

Whenever I come across a brand that I’m not familiar with, I always like to look them up and get more information on them. Ace Beauty started in 2016 and mostly sold lashes. Since then, they have gone completely cruelty-free, replacing their mink lashes with faux-lashes and expanding their range into colour cosmetics and tools like brushes.

This palette features 4 shimmers and 4 mattes to create a variety of eye looks. I wasn’t planning on using this palette because I recently bought a new one at the Sephora VIP sale BUT the colours in here are so pretty that I could not help but want to swatch it!

I’m also really loving the packaging. Although this has no mirror, it does have a very interesting gold pattern. I love the sleek cardboard packaging. I’ll be sure to create a few looks with this and share them on Instagram or the blog!

Luxie Luminous Eye Set
MSRP: $21.00 USD

When I first looked at this I thought about saving them for friends/family since I have a lot of brushes in my collection but the packaging and size of these brushes are different from what I currently have so I’m going to use them myself. I love the glittery gold barrels. This came packed exclusively for BoxyCharm and I think it’s cute if you wanted to give these as a gift because they make a nice set. The brushes themselves are super soft!

The 121 mini tapered allows you to blend in the crease. The 131 mini angled can be used for adding highlight to the brow bone or to precisely add colour to the crease. The 141 mini round can be used to smudge or smoke our the upper or lower lash line. The 111 mini flat angled can be used to blend out harsh lines or pack cream products on the lid.

Farah Galaxy Gold Tweezers
MRSP: $12.00 USD

This is an interesting dual-ended tweezer. I’ve never seen or used something like this before! Again, I love that this has gold splatter on it which really goes with the over all theme of the box! Plus, I like when we get other useful beauty tools inside of our boxes. This really goes along with the eye shadow palette and eye brushes.

This thin side is used to remove really fine or short hairs.  The flat side is good for removing really coarse hair.

I would have thought that because this was dual-ended that it would be very stiff and difficult to use. That’s not the case at all. This bends very easily and tweezes out the hair without snapping it.

Bodyography Makeup Brush Cleaner
MSRP: $12.00 USD

Another really useful beauty tool to have around! For a quick clean, you can use a spray of this on your brushes and wipe them on a towel. If you want a deep clean, you work the cleanser into the brush and rinse it out.  This is made from natural orange peel and gentle cleansers.

I did a quick read of the website and Bodyography is a brand based out of the US that offers cruelty-free, mineral-based makeup with clean ingredients that are infused with skincare benefits. They have a full line or makeup, skincare, tools, etc. I’m excited to try something from this brand!

My Thoughts

I am absolutely in love and excited to try everything in this box. This is probably one of the most well-thought out boxes I’ve received from any subscription box. Everything went with the theme, I got some fum makeup items, new brushes and tools that I’ll actually use!

Total Value: $113.99 USD ($150.21 CAD!)

Did you get BoxyCharm this month? What was in your box? What did you think of this month’s box?

Lots of Love,
Dal
