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.
The December 2018 theme is TIS THE SEA-SUN!
The items are neatly packaged. Everything, including the box, is in a black and white color scheme.
The information card lists all the products in the box, together with a brief description.
Everything in my December 2018 BOXYCHARM! There are variations in the box – see them here.
Pretty Vulgar The Powder Room Translucent Setting Powder ($32) This weightless translucent powder will set your foundation and lock it into place with a matte finish. To keep your makeup fresh all day long, puff some of the product using the delicate puff applicator that comes along with it. It will effortlessly blur and fill in the fine lines without leaving crease or trace of color. It is also has a pore minimizing effect that absorbs excess oils, reduces shine and formulated without parabens, phthalates, and sulfates.
When you dip the puffer to the pan, tap of the excess and lightly dust it all over the face to set the foundation. You can press it by sponge if you want a more matte and highlighted look. Use the powder puff for quick touch-ups.
This is the prettiest powder I’ve ever received! Also, powder! Thank goodness! Can always count on BOXY!
Cosmedix Detox Activated Charcoal Mask ($27) This activated charcoal mask is like a magnet that detoxifies using transformative ingredients. It pulls out dirt from clogged pores while cleansing the age-accelerating pollutants for a flawless finish and a clear complexion. The formula includes charcoal and kaolin clay and dandelion extracts.
Tarte Tarteist Shimmering Lip Paint ($20) For a luxe and glossy lip color, this glides onto the contour of lips smoothly and with precision. It has a felt tip flat applicator so you can shade inside the lip line.
It is long wearing and has concentrated pigments that is conditioning, hydrating, and vibrant. It has a non-stick formula even though it has a shiny finish so it doesn’t feel tacky. It is also formulated free of parabens and phthalates. It’s totally gorgeous – we can’t get enough of this shade!
Bodyography Heatherberry Lip Pencil ($12 Full-Size 0.04 oz.) Where can you find an antioxidant, vegan, gluten-free and paraben-free like this lip pencil? This glides on like butter as it is precise, vibrant, and can define lips. It has durable pigments for extended wear. Infused with coconut oil and vitamin E, it’s smooth when applied and not dragging.
Suva Beauty Protege Palette ($34) This palette contains a versatile color story that caters to a wide range of undertones. It has a cool and some warm pigments to choose from.
The shimmer shadows work best if applied with fingers. Use a dense dome brush for pigmented looks and use fluffy blending brush for subtle looks.
The palette features 6 eyeshadow shades and 2 brilliant highlighters. It’s lightweight and includes a mirror that can be perfect for traveling. It is cruelty-free, formulated without parabens, sulfates, phthalates, and gluten.
This month’s BOXYCHARM mostly included makeup infused with vitamins and healthy ingredients. My favorites include the eye palette that can create cool looks this festive season, and the combination of lip pencil and shimmering lip paint to finish our looks. I also like the translucent powder which is so lightweight but gives a flawlessly smooth finish – and in the prettiest container. I got about $125 worth of products as promised, which is way more than what I paid for. Opening Boxycharm has been fun this year and I hope they can keep on surprising us next year too!
