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!
DEAL: Subscribe now and get a free gift: PUR Sculptor Palette OR Dr. Brandt Skincare Limited Edition Microdermabrasion with the May 2020 BOXYCHARM! (Note that new subscribers could receive different variations!)
It’s here! I’ve been excited since the spoilers!
The items arrived in a black box. There are no fillers but everything arrived in great condition.
Everything in my May 2020 BOXYCHARM! There are variations in the box – see them here.
It has tourmaline ceramic barrels with an ergonomic grip handle and a 1.8 meter swivel cord.
This curling wand is very convenient to use! It’s simple and to be honest, at first glance I really thought it wouldn’t do much but it actually works!
I really like the compact design. It also heats up pretty fast, with a maximum of 190 C or 370 F.
Deborah Lippman Polish Duo in Fire On The Horizon & Can’t Stop The Feeling ($20) Subscribers get 1 of the 5 items shown here. The nail polish duo came in a cute box! These have a dual-patented formula containing 10 active ingredients which help prolong the color but don’t damage the nails. I received the same set of nail polish in my March 2020 BoxyLuxe!
The back of the box lists all the ingredients used in making the nail polish.
Fire On The Horizon is a classic red, and Can’t Stop The Feeling is a light pink shade. Both look vibrant!
The formula of these nail polishes is good. They are not just gentle on the nails, they also have good coverage! It’s recommended to apply a thin layer of base coat over clean nails before applying any color for best results.
English Laundry No. 7 For Her ($24) Subscribers get 1 of the 5 items shown here. It’s a sweet and creamy scent, perfect for daytime use! Top notes are pear, jasmine, melon, and apricot. In the middle are gardenia and almonds, while the base notes are sandalwood, vanilla, cream, and musk. I find that it lasts a good amount of time and the smell even lingers on my clothing!
Hourglass Cosmetics Vanish Flash Highlighting Stick ($42) Subscribers will receive this or Elemis Dynamic Resurfacing Facial Pads Skin Smoothing Pads or Glamglow Berryglow Priobiotic Recovery Face Mask. The packaging of this highlighting stick looks good! It’s simple but it has that futuristic vibe to it. The highlighter itself feels lightweight when applied and it has a very soft-focus effect. For more intense highlights, this can be layered as well. Another thing I like about it is its triangular tip, which makes it easy to use in a focus area!
This choice item became unavailable really quickly so I was happy to nab it!
Wander Beauty Dush to Dawn Blush and Highlighter Palette ($26) Subscribers get 1 of the 5 items shown here. This palette has everything I need to add a beautiful glow to my daily makeup looks!
The ingredients are listed at the back, as well as the product expiry date which is 24 months after opening.
The palette is simple and compact and it even came with its own mirror. There are two blushers and a lovely highlighter that you can use to get a flushed and dewy look!
I love the shade selection in this palette. I would’ve opted for a champagne shade of highlighter, but the one here is okay. I can use the blushes on their own or mix them together for a more natural-looking flush! I like the pigmentation as it’s very subtle but buildable and the highlighter formula is also good!
With over $160 worth of items inside a $25 box, this box is definitely a steal! I love the highlighting stick because the formula is just so good. It gives my skin a natural-looking glow, making it look more radiant and bright! The mini curling wand is also amazing as it does a great job creating long-lasting curls. I love that the size is very travel friendly, it’s so convenient! All the products from this box are special in their own way and I’m so satisfied with the curation!
