Hey guys! So a little late but here is my review of this month’s Boxycharm!
The first thing I noticed with this box is that they changed the inside packaging a bit. Instead of paper swigglies they had foam in the box. Unfortunately the new packaging was not that great because my brush got slightly bent. The brush is the Luxie Rose Gold Pro Precision Tapered Face Brush 640. I washed the brush and fortunately the brushes bent back to the regular shape. Overall while I love the quality of the brush, I am not a big fan of the shape of this brush. I find the brush too big and too fluffy for my under eyes and way to big to apply highlight. I love Luxie brushes but not in love with this one. Price: $24.00
Next is the RealHer Eye Shadow Palette. I got Volume I, which the website describes as their nude collection. I think this palette is okay – isn’t the work I got but not the best. As you can tell from the pictures, the pigmentation varies through the colours. The top row is full of shimmers and that have very low pigmentation. But the matte shades and the two bottom shimmers are very pigmented. I find the best way to apply this shadows are with a flat synthetic brush. My major issue with this palette is the colour selection. It does not have a cream colour shade to go all over to set my eye primer. Also it only has two matte shades, and only one real ‘crease’ colour. Overall I feel meh about this palette. I’m sure I will use it again but it won’t be my go to palette. Price: $28.00
Next is the Diamond Glow Powder by Artist Couture in the shade Illuminati. I was so surprised and happy to get this product! I have heard amazing things about it, but probably would have never bought it myself. So I am very happy to get this product. This is an amazing blinding highlight in a pretty champagne colour. The only negative I have with this product is that it is a loose highlight, so if you’re not careful it is easy to get everywhere (trust me I got it all over the lid as you can tell from the false photo). As just a warning, this highlight also has glitter particles in it, so it can emphasize texture. This is not an every day highlight, but it is amazing for going out or false photography. Price: $26.99
Probably my favourite item in this month’s box is the Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick by Ofra – I got the shade Santa Ana. I was very happy to get this product because last time we got an Ofra lipstick I found the formula very good but the colour not wearable. I am in love with this shade! It is a nice berry shade; I do not like wearing reds but this kind of shade has a similar impact. I found the formula quite nice, it does not dry down completely so it is comfortable to wear through the day. Love this lipstick! Price: $19.90
Finally I got three sheet masks from Biobelle Cosmetics. I have only used one mask so far and I found it was okay. I personally find that sheet masks don’t do much for my skin. So I will use these masks but will probably not buy more masks. Price: $14.97
Overall price for this month’s box is $113.86 USD. I liked this month’s box, but I find it funny that one of my favourite items was not about of the sneak peeks that they usually give!
