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 always include an amazingly high value with premium products!
It’s here! I’ve been excited since the spoilers!
The May 2019 theme is MAKE WAVES!
The information card lists all the products in the box, together with a brief description.
Everything in my May 2019 BOXYCHARM! There are variations in the box – see them here.
Glamglow Gentlebubble Daily Conditioning Cleanser ($28) Subscribers will either receive this or First Aid Beauty Hello Fab Coconut Water Cream. This skin conditioner gets rid of all the dirt that your skin got exposed to through the day. It felt really smooth and I think that it did a pretty good job at deep cleansing my skin. It even removed the mascara residue that wouldn’t budge with my makeup remover. Plus, the packaging is so adorable!
Mellow Brow Definer ($18) This is a variant item. It has a triangular tip that helps me fill in the gaps and shape my eyebrows with ease like an expert. The texture is also non-greasy but glides smoothly so it’s easy to work with. I also think that the shade fits my hair and eye colors. Lovely!
Dose of Colors Liquid Matte Lipstick ($18) This is a variant item. I love how this liquid matte lipstick goes on creamy and not too dry. It’s also long wearing and doesn’t smudge even after drinking or eating.
The rich, coral crush shade is also highly pigmented, ultra comfortable to wear and looks lovely on my fair skin tone!
Ciate London Eye Lustre Creme Eyeshadow ($22) Subscribers will either receive this or the same item but in another shade. This liquid eye shadow will surely spice up my normal, all-natural look. It creates that long-lasting, shimmery effect that jazzes up my entire appearance whether it’s for a late night party or a formal occasion.
It has a crease-resistant formula that blends and layers effortlessly. Also, its gorgeous rose gold color looks even more beautiful when dusted on top of a matte shade!
Alamar Cosmetics Colorette Blush Trio ($22) Subscribers will either receive this or Milk Makeup Luminous Blur Stick. It’s a blush trio in a palette of beautiful, shimmery colors that complements every skin tone!
The blushes are named Seclusion, Isla, and Toasted. All of them give that sun-kissed look. They all have a buttery smooth formula, contain micro shimmers, and are completely vegan.
Seclusion is a peachy shade, Isla is a pink-coral shade, and Toasted has more of a vibrant, pinkish-red color that stood out the most.
I love the effort they gave in decorating the box alone, but I was surprised to see that the palette is even prettier! It has gold bronze detailing on the lid and its own mirror inside which made it look so much more luxurious!
A closer look at our three lovely colors!
Here’s a swatch of the blushes, eye shadow, and matte lipstick. As you can see, the blushes appeared to be opaque on my fair skin tone, which I think gave me a natural tan glow that’s not too streaky and I love it! As for the creme eye shadow and lipstick, I do think that they are equally fabulous!
The items really justify this month’s theme because they all gave me that summer vibes, especially the trio of blushes! The shades are stunning in a nice and subtle way that I don’t have to worry about having applied too much. The facial cleanser also surprised me with how clean it made me feel even without exfoliating. It felt so nice as I gently massaged it onto my skin. The lipstick was also rich in color and I love how it didn’t feel dry on my lips despite the matte finish. To round it all up, I totally adore everything in the box!
