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 items arrived in a black box. They were neatly placed inside, some even have plastic cover/bubble wrap to make sure they stay safe and sealed during transit.
The December 2019 theme is Whimsy!
The information card lists all the products in the box, together with a brief description.
Everything in my December 2019 BOXYCHARM! There are variations in the box – see them here.
Aesthetica Brush Cleanser and Conditioner ($17) Subscribers will receive this, or the Seraphine Botanicals Whimsical Wisteria Conditioning Lip Polish, or Daikon + Dreams Lip Exfoliator with Radish Extract. I like this brush cleaner because it’s really easy to use. The squeezy-tube packaging is very handy and I can easily control the amount I need. It smells good and leaves my brushes feeling soft and like new! The formula also works whether for natural or synthetic brushes and even for makeup sponges.
Storybook Cosmetics Mini Palette in Robin Hood (Green Book) ($25) Subscribers will receive either this or the red book which is The Little Red Riding Hood palette. I love Story Book Cosmetics! They have awesome bookish-themed palettes, and their eyeshadow formula is pretty good.
The back of the packaging has information on the ingredients of each shade.
Upon opening, you will see a mirror that’s just the right size for quick touch-ups. The names of the shades are also in line with the theme of the book palette.
I like the formula of their eyeshadows especially the matte ones. Just pack them on and blend then you’re good to go. I love the color story of this mini palette because it’s very wearable and good for everyday use.
Brow Bar Makeover Kit ($30) Subscribers will get this or the IBY Feather Matte Liquid Lipstick in Nude or Flirt. Compact and lightweight, this brow kit is really good for people on the go. The gold packaging looks really classy.
The kit includes two brow shades, brow lift, sculpting mascara gel, angled brush, and a flat brow brush. It really has everything I need to keep my brows on fleek, no matter how busy I am!
Ciate Marbled Light Blusher ($26) Everyone will get this blusher, but in different shades. I got the shade Dusk which is a mauve-y pink!
This marbled blusher is perfect for achieving that glowing blush.
The compact comes with a mirror for easier application. I’m obsessed with this shade because it looks very natural on my skin. It gives that subtle glow that makes my blush look more natural and radiant. The pigment isn’t too strong but is definitely buildable depending on your preference.
Saturday Skin Waterfall Glacier Water Cream ($39) Subscribers will get either this or the Elemis Pro-Collagen Rose Facial Oil. This cream is amazing! It’s lightweight and refreshing when applied. It smells really good as well. I’ve been using this for a few days now and I can definitely see the difference from when I first started using it. My skin texture feels like it improved.
I love how moisturizing this is. At first, I was hesitant because the gel-like texture of the cream makes it look like it’s going to feel tacky and heavy but it isn’t. It’s very comfortable on the face and I find that it gets absorbed quickly by my skin. It also claims to have anti-aging properties so I’ll continue to use it and we’ll see about that!
BOXYCHARM nailed it once again! They never fail to wow me each and every time! This month’s box is mostly dominated by makeup products and I’m not complaining. I absolutely love the palette, the theme is well-thought-out and most importantly, the eyeshadow formula is smooth, creamy, and long-lasting. The brow kit and the blusher are of high-quality as well. The only skincare product this month is the water cream. I like it because it really helps with moisturizing my skin, especially around winter when I need that extra boost of moisture. They even included a brush cleaner, which I find pretty useful. Overall, I am happy with everything in this month’s box! It totaled to $137 in retail value, so I’m even more impressed!
