BOXYCHARM never fails to amaze! This month’s box contains a bunch of luxurious items. The standout item is definitely the serum. It’s useful as it helps get rid of dry skin and also leaves a radiant glow. The vibrant palette and top-quality makeup brushes are awesome additions as well. Not everyone wears mink eyelashes often but the quality of the ones they included in this box is still pretty impressive. Overall, it’s a superb curation!

Everything about this month’s GLOSSYBOX is usable and top quality! The eyeshadow palette took the spotlight because of its beautiful, earthy colors and amazing pigment that doesn’t dry out nor feel heavy. With the mascara and the lip crayon, it feels like a cohesive curation!

Ipsy Glambag Plus is definitely one of the best subscriptions that provide full-sized beauty and skincare products. The duo bronzer and the mascara/curler are fantastic. They’re really compact and they are easy to bring anywhere. The leopard print pouch is also nice, as it fits most of the items in this box. As for the skincare products, both are perfect for the season!
BOXYCHARM takes the crown this month! The box contains luxurious items that are useful for everyone, including skincare products that combat the effects of the harsh weather conditions and make-up products that are also needed when for this season’s parties and events! Ipsy Glambag Plus comes in a close second as it contains full-sized products. GLOSSYBOX is also amazing with the palette that includes beautiful earthy colors. As always, we think BeautyFix contains great products that we would also love to try but unfortunately, we didn’t get the box. Overall, it’s another amazing experience to try all the items these boxes have to offer, and we’re really excited about the upcoming boxes and see what else they have in store for us!
