BOXYCHARM January 2018 Subscription Box Review

Hello Subscription may earn compensation via links in this post. Read the full disclosure
Notification

BOXYCHARM is a makeup and beauty subscription box that sends out 4-5 deluxe and full size samples every month. In the past, the items have been mostly full-size products and the boxes have been able to maintain an amazingly high value.

TIP: BOXYCHARM is usually available through the end of the month. However, their subscription is currently subject to a waitlist – I recommend signing up ASAP if you think you want the next box.

The January theme is ROCK 2018!

All the item info is on the back of the card.

Everything in my January BOXYCHARM!

Dr. Brandt Skincare Pores No More Luminizer Primer ($38) This primer combines optical diffusers, illuminating powder, and lentil seed extracts. It helps in refining and lessening the look of pores, while improving skin complexion.

To use, just apply on clean and moisturized skin. You can wear it alone for a natural bounce of light on the skin, or under makeup to prepare your skin for easier and flawless application.

An info card containing the list of ingredients is also included.

Girlactik Liquid Lip Matte Lip Paint In Posh ($23) I received the liquid lipstick in Posh, a terracotta color which  has hues of orange and brown. I love the vanilla-like smell and the fact that it’s not heavy on the lips. A swipe will give a lovely color but if you opt to have it darker, then apply another coating.

IT Cosmetics Brow Power Eyebrow Pencil In Universal Taupe ($24) Next is an eyebrow pencil in a universally transforming shade that you can adjust to various hair colors depending on the pressure of application. It comes with an oval shaped tip to cover both thick and thin brows, while at the other end has a spooly that gives the brows a natural polished look.

PUR Bronze and Brighten Palette ($34) This on-the-go makeup palette includes a highlighter, a bronzer, and a blush.

It’s cruelty-free, and formulated without parabens and talc.

Here’s how it looks when opened. Good thing there’s a mirror too! It’s really compact!

The skin-perfecting powders create an effortless and sun-kissed glow. It suits most skin tones.

The palette introduces a new blush shade called Blushing Glow, which gives the cheeks a subtle and cute glow. Paired with the cult classic Afterglow highlighter and Mineral Glow bronzer, it makes a fresh and well put-together everyday look!

If my arm looks a little different, it’s because I had to use my Aunt’s arm due to bruises on mine. Ouch!

Crown Pro Palette Glam Metals Eyeshadow Palette ($29.99) Last but not the least is a collection of chic and glam eyeshadow shades!

The colors are well-pigmented, foiled, and ultra blendable. This is ideal for doing smoky eyes!

The palette comes in 9 awesome shades: Punk, Wild Thing, Black Metal, Rock On, Rebel, Heavy Metal, The Wicked, Glam Rock, and Pop Rock.

To take your look up a notch, wet your eyeshadow brush before application as it will intensify the foiling effect of the shadows, resulting in a sultry, smoky glam.

Even the container looks fit for a rocker chick!

Here are the swatches. Everything looks great and incredibly pigmented!

BOXYCHARM lived up to this month’s theme! I like that most of the colors are highly pigmented and great for all skin tones. Also, the products have higher individual prices than the subscription itself, so I know that I’m getting my money’s worth and more! I love the palettes, both the eyeshadow and the 3-in-1 makeup kit. (TWO!) They gave me more choices on how will I rock my look this new year!

A reminder: BOXYCHARM runs on a waitlist, and if you sign up now you might or might not get this month’s box!
