Hey friends! Back with my favourite thing to review – my Boxycharm! This month’s theme is Wild Flower, and all the photo promotions they did all their Instagram is gorgeous!
The first product is the Pretty Vulgar Nightingale Smokey Eyeshadow palette. This is a cool toned smokey palette, so not something I wear on the every day. I’m not sure how much use I will get out of this palette, but something nice to have on hand. Also trying to review this palette forced me out of my comfort zone and try something new. I really liked the quality of the mattes, but didn’t like the shimmers as much. The mattes were pigmented and blended really well. The shimmers are the other hand were quite mediocre. They were nice, but I had to wet them to really get my desired look. I definitely have nicer shimmers in my collection. Overall, I liked the palette, and if Pretty Vulgar came out with an all matte palette I would buy it. Price: $35 USD, $43 CAD
Next is the Laura Geller Baked Blush-n-Brighten in the shade Tropical Hues. I didn’t think I was going to like this blush because it has shimmers in it, but it actually gives a healthy glow to the skin. It’s the perfect level of pigmentation when I don’t have to worry about accidentally putting on too much blush. This blush is a beautiful shade and I will definitely continue to use it. Price: $28 USD
The Butter London Stroke of Wow Roll on Liner reminds me of the MAC Rollerwheel liner, which I had heard numerous negative reviews on. I was very nervous about using this liner, and in the end I didn’t like it. I had to close my eye and pull on the skin to be able to get a nice straight line, which I don’t have to do with other eyeliners. I tried to do a wing and it was nearly impossible. I have hooded eyelids, so it’s hard enough already to do a nice wing. This eyeliner just ended up skipped all over the place, and I ended up giving up before I even made a nice wing. Finally, I found the liner to have a shiny finish, and I personally prefer a matte finish. Overall I did not like this liner, and I would not recommend because it is very difficult to use. Price: $19 USD, $26 CAD
The Hank and Henry liquid lipsticks are actually not available yet, so it’s cool to try a product before it releases. I received the shade Petal Pusher, which is a beautiful berry tone. Overall it was a nice liquid lipstick, but not my favourite. It looked nice all day, didn’t transfer and lasted through lunch. Unfortunately but I time I got home I just couldn’t wait to take it off because my lips felt dried out. Overall, I would wear it again because it’s a nice shade, but I wouldn’t go out and buy more. Price: $17 USD
The final product was the Alamar Cosmetics Ojitos Brush Set. I really like this brush set because it includes everything I need to complete a eye look. It includes a fluffy blender, a flat brush for apply shimmery shades, and flat tight liner for doing liner or smoking out the lower lash line. The brush hair is soft and applying shadow well. The only thing is I wish the handles were slightly bigger. Overall a great brush set, and I am always happy to receive more brushes in my box. Price: $18
The overall price of the box was $117 USD. Besides the eyeliner, I quite liked this box! What did you guys think? Did we get the same box? Let me know down below!
