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 “’Tis the Sea-Sun”. I love the play on words and that this has a little flamingo with a Santa hat on. I know a lot of people travel to warmer climates during the winter and I think a lot of the items in this box are travel-friendly!
Prices are in USD, converted to CAD at the end
Tarte Glitter Paint in Flaming Hot
MSRP: $20.00 US
This is described as a sheer lip gloss with shimmery glitters. The shade Flaming Hot is gorgeous! I love the deep berry colour with the blue and pink glitters in it. Although I really like this shade I’m not going to swatch this because I think it might be better suited for someone I know.
Bodyography Lip Liner in Barely There
MSRP: $12.00 US
Recently, I’ve been wearing lipstick a little more often than I usually do, it’s the season of bright lips after all, so having this lip liner that matches my lip colour is perfect. It’s a traditional wooden pencil which I like and the formula is on the dry side, which I like as well. Last month, I received a makeup brush cleaner from this brand in my BoxyCharm so I’m happy to get another product to explore more than they offer.
Marajo Anti Frizz Smoothing Serum Capsules
MSRP: $18.00 US*
*my boxycharm card had these at $28.00 but I looked on their website and saw it was $18.00
These capsule size serums are really perfect for travel. You can take the jar and use as you need while on vacation without the worry of taking a whole bottle of serum that might leak in your bag! This serum nourishes with Shea Butter and helps prevent heat damage and is ideal for taming frizz on the go.
OK! I’m super excited to try this, however, it is super pricey for only 10 capsules. That means I’m only going to get 10 uses of this. I’ve purchased bottles of serums that cost about the same but last me way longer. I did use this the last time I styled my hair. Since I have short hair I only needed half the little capsule of serum which was a waste because I had no way of saving the rest of the serum without it spilling all over the place. It did smell really good and left my hair feeling really silky so there is that.
Wander Beauty Dusk to Dawn Blush & Highlight Palette
MSRP: $26.00 US
This is a BoxyCharm exclusive product. It includes two blushes (Hava Nights and Tuscan Sunrise) and one highlighter (City Lights). I think the colours are really beautiful and perfect for every day.
The pan sizes are smaller but I like that there is space between the shades so you don’t accidentally mix them together if you don’t want to. I also really love the pink sunrise packaging. This would make a great travel item.
PYT Mini Hair Straightener
MSRP: $75.00 US
UM WOW! Did this seriously come in my BoxyCharm!
Probably the ultimate travel tool; the mini hair straightener! This is a ceramic flat iron that gets up to 400-degree Fahrenheit. A great little tool to keep for touch ups on the go. I love that it’s a bright green and that it comes in a little travel pouch. I’m super excited that this came in my BoxyCharm! I might keep this at work or save it for my next overnight trip!
So that was all the items in my BoxyCharm this month. Overall, I’m super happy with everything I got. I am definitely thinking about using these items on my next trip, I just need to decide where to go. I’m shocked that the flat iron came in this month’s box because it is so pricey.
Total Value: $151.00 USD ($202.09 CAD)
