BOXYCHARM February 2018 Review

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

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 items are neatly and carefully packaged.

The February theme was GALAXY GLOW!

The items are listed on the back of the card, together with a brief description.

Everything in my February BOXYCHARM! There were multiple variations this month, see more here!

ALL SUBSCRIBERS: Crown Brush Trio ($29.99) This brush set can be used for liquid, cream, or powder make up. The bristles are made of synthetic fibers, and the handle is painted wood with a clever indent for your fingers!

Each brush has its own purpose. The smallest brush can be used for concealing, the medium brush is for applying foundation or contouring, and the largest brush is for setting with powder. Love the pretty pink blush on each brush!

ALL SUBSCRIBERS: Vintage Cosmetics Smokey Eye Pencil ($21) This classic eye liner pencil is highly pigmented and very easy to apply. It easily glides on the eyelid with every stroke because of its creamy texture. No sharpener with this pencil but I had no issues using a standard sharpener.

VARIATION ITEM: Seraphine Botanicals Sugar + Lemon Moisturizing Lip Buffer ($24) Packed with shea butter and a mixture of oils, this lip scrub buffs the lips and leaves it super soft afterwards. You just have to gently massage it onto your lips until sugar crystals melt, and then rinse with water or wipe with a wet tissue. Best of all, it’s vegan and 92% plant-based! I loved the sugary lemon taste of this product!

Subscribers received this lip scrub, PUR Lips Plumping Lip Exfoliator, or Bellapierre Cosmetic Glitter.

ALL SUBSCRIBERS:  Cover FX Shimmer Veil In Amethyst ($28) Nothing is wrong with a little shimmer here and there, and this creme is perfect for days when you want just that. It has a light weight formulation and a creamy texture so you can use it not just for the eyes but also for the entire face.

I received it in Amethyst which has a lavender tint to it. It is also no budge or crease, which is amazing!

I also got a code for a 20% discount on my next purchase from CoverFX until 3/15/18.

VARIATION ITEM: Naked Cosmetics Highlighter Palette ($39.99) With 6 different highlighter colors to choose from, this highlighter palette is great for adding shimmer and a little color to the cheeks. It works well for any skin tone.

Subbies got either this palette or the Ofra Cosmetics Pop-Up Palette with a blush pan.

In order to transform into the unicorn you know you are, use the colors individually or all together for a rainbow holographic effect.

Even if you’re not a unicorn, don’t you just love gazing upon the magnificence of this palette?


Here are the swatches! On top is the eyeliner pencil, followed by the shimmer, and then the highlighters.

February BOXYCHARM theme is totally my style. I love the shimmery makeup items they sent, as well as the lip scrub and the brushes. Each item’s value is more expensive than the monthly cost of the box, while the overall value retails at $142.98 — I’m really impressed! If you aren’t into shimmery iridescent glamour this was probably not the month for you, but I bet you can still make it work! Shimmer up!

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

What’s your favorite item in this month’s BOXYCHARM?

    I really like boxycharm because they send more make up than other beauty boxes. When my supply dwindles down some I hope to resubscribe.

    This month’s boxy has me seriously considering cancelling! Not one item makes me excited. Thank goodness I have a friend who is dying to get her hands on this box she canceled months ago because boxy usually has neutral shades.
