A little late but oh well! Still a helpful review of the products. As October marks my one year subscription to Boxycharm, so look out for a review of my one year review.
First the item I got was the ncLA ‘Nailed It’ Took Kit. This nail tool kit comes with five pieces: nail file, nail clippers, two nail pushers and small scissors. While this kit is very useful it’s not the most exciting thing to receive. I put in it my bag and will use it for nail emergencies. Price: $18.00
Next I got the Jonteblu Lip Liner Pencil in Brown Sugar. I actually really like this pencil! Just goes to show that price does not always equal quality! This pencil is smooth, creamy and pigmented. I would apply this all over my lips and then just put a little gloss on top. I was pleasantly surprised! Price: $5.00
Next, probably my favourite product, is the Becca Pressed Highlight in Prosecco Pop. Now I already own a Becca highlighter, Champagne Pop, so I was very happy to receive this product because I already knew the quality of these highlights. They are amazing. This is the perfect blinding highlight because it makes your face glow but doesn’t make your face look textured. Very pigmented and easy to blend out. This highlight has much more yellow/gold undertones to it, which works well with my skin tone. Such a great product! Price: $38.00 (but in Canada at Sephora these guys are $46.00)
I am very happy with this next product. If you guys remember for last month, the Colourpop lippie that I got was so light on me that I had to give it to a friend because I just could not wear it. When I saw the shade options they were offering for the Tarte’s Tarteist Lip Paints I was really afraid I was going to get another light shade. Thankfully I got the shade Homeslice, a peachy nude. I normally don’t go for peachy shades, but I actually really liked the shade on myself. That’s why I really like Boxycharm – I receive things that I might not necessarily pick out for myself but end of enjoying! Price: $20.00
Finally I received the Dr. Brandt Poredermabrasion. I am unsure how I feel about this product. I used it once and I found that my skin broke out into a bunch of tiny bumps. So this product might be too strong for me. It is a chemical exfolitaor, which I tend to be too strong for me since I already use prescription acne products. I’m going to give it another try but it might just be too much for my skin. But it is still amazing to get expensive skincare products. Price: $58.00
While this box has some really great products, I was not really wow-ed by it. I found the ncLA Nail Kit to be a lame product to receive. I have also received products from Dr. Brandt in my Boxycharm boxes before. And finally, while for most people this product must have been exciting to receive, I already own a Becca highlight so it wasn’t something brand new to me. But there have been worst boxes so I won’t complain too much! Overall price: $139.00
I have a big haul coming soon so stay tuned for that!
