Hey guys! Sorry for being MIA for a month and a half. I got really busy with school and my personal life, so my blog had to take a back seat. But now I’m done school and ready to commit more time and energy into my blog! 🙂 And what a better post to come back to than my April Boxycharm! This month’s theme was Eye Candy and man this was a good box!
First I got two brushes from SL Miss Glam. They are very cute looking brushes! They are soft, synthetic brushes. The purple brush is a great crease brush while the pink one is great at packing on colour. I love getting brushes in my box, and these brushes are quite nice! Price: $38.50 USD
Next is the BrowGal Instatint Tinted Eyebrow Gel. Now this is a good product but the completely wrong shade for me! I have dark eyebrows and this tinted gel was way to light for me so I gave it to a friend. My friend really likes the brow gel. She said it applied nicely and does a good job of keeping the brow hairs in place. She also said it is more natural looking in comparison to other brow gels that look more slicked back. While some people may find a tinted brow gel nice, I think since Boxycharm doesn’t ask for our shade preferences it would have made more sense to give us a eyebrow gel. Price: $22.00 USD
I received a MAC Cosmetics Liptensity Lipstick in Burnt Violet. I think this is a really nice lipstick but I’m not a big fan of the shade I got. Burnt Violet is a deep plum shade, which I would wear more in the fall/winter versus the spring. As well, I prefer wearing dark shades in a matte finish instead of a creamy satin. Finally, because of the lipstick bullet is flat, it is extremely hard to make a crisp line. Now I wouldn’t mind if the lipstick was lighter in colour, but because it’s dark it looks messy. Overall, I would have loved if I had gotten a different shade, but I probably won’t wear this lipstick until the fall and would need to use a lip brush. Price: $21.00 USD or $26.00 CAD
Every subscriber this month received the Dr. Brandt Pores No More Vacuum Cleaner. While it’s great to receive such good quality and expensive skin care, this is my third Dr. Brandt product, and I would enjoy trying skin care from other brands. This mask itself is very interesting. It comes out like a gel and has these tiny little beads that break and turn the mask blue as I apply it to my face. The mask definitely reduced the oil on my face and made my pores look cleaner. This mask is an oily girls dream but definitely not for dry or sensitive skin. Price: $47.00 USD
Finally each person received one of five possible Colourpop eyeshadow palettes. I received the Element of Surprise Eyeshadow Palette. I am really happy that I got this palette! It has a nice mix of mattes and metallics to create so many different looks. I really like Colourpop eyeshadows – they are creamy and the metallics are super pigmented! This palette is also surprisingly small. This might bother some people because it means the pans are small, but I actually like that because it makes it easy to travel with. Overall so happy with this eyeshadow palette, and excited to do so many different looks with it! Price: $18.00 USD.
Overall total was $144.50 USD. I really liked this box! There were no products that were bad, just products that I wished I had received a different shade! Let me know your thoughts on the box 🙂
