January Boxycharm 2020

Hey guys! Today’s post is everyone’s favourite – my Boxycharm post! I always love receiving my box and reviewing the products for you guys. I had a lot of questions last time I posted it to my stories, so I thought I would explain Boxycharm for those who may not know what it is. Boxycharm is a subscription service that sends five full-size beauty products every month. They have a ton of different options, so I would check their website for full details. It’s $25 US, so around $30 CA. I have been subscribed for three years now and while there are some things I don’t like about the box, overall I love it! So here is what I got in this month’s box.

The first product is the Wander Beauty Trip for Two Blush and Bronzer Duo. I received the shades Bellini/Costa Rei. I like the blush more than the bronzer. Both have a great formula that is easy to apply and looks good on the skin. I find the bronzer looks slightly ashy on my skin. It’s not an awful match, and I will continue to use it. But I think there are better bronzers on the market. Price: $36 US, $43.20 CA

Next is the Ace Beaute Vintage Dawn Palette. I was very happy to receive another product from this brand because I enjoyed the other palette I have from them. The eye shadows are great quality. The mattes are pigmented as blend well. The blue in the palette was amazing, and a matte blue is a hard shade to formulate. I love the colour story because it’s so unique. It’s basically the rainbow but really interesting shades. It’s not an everyday palette though, which is slightly annoying because I can’t use it as much. But it makes me feel interested and watch to create makeup looking at the palette. There is a good-sized mirror too. Great palette! Price: $34.99 US. (Check out my Instagram for looks using the palette!)

The product I was super excited to receive was the Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask. This is the mini size. I always see the mini when checking out at Sephora and always held back, so it was great to receive a product that I have been thinking about trying in my box. Unfortunately, this mask is not what I expected. Other sleeping masks that I have tried are like heavy moisturizers. This one I recommend putting on right before bed and washing off it in the morning. It pills off your face, which is weird when you’re just chilling around your house. I find the pilling weird, so it makes me reach for other masks. But I do like the smell, reminds me of Watermelon freezies. Overall just make sure to follow the instructions exactly. Price: $22 US, $29 CA (for the mini).

This product I was very unsure of but actually kind like! The Grande Cosmetics GrandeDrama Intense Thickening Mascara has pretty cheap packaging. It’s very light and the outside feels weird on the hand. So I thought I wasn’t going to like this mascara. It’s not like it’s advertised but I still like it. It’s supposed to be thick, voluminous lashes, but I like that it gives long, wispy lashes. So overall I like the mascara, but because it doesn’t perform as advertised, it has cheap packaging and it’s over-priced I wouldn’t recommend. Price: $25 US

The final product is the TooFaced Diamond Light Highlighter. There has been a lot of drama surrounding TooFaced as of late. So I am not going to review the product. All I will say is to do your own research and determine whether or not you want to purchase the product.

The overall price of the box is $153.99. I liked this box! While I might not be in love with every product, I received products that I am interested in and enjoyed trying out. I have received boxes where most of the products were duds or I received products that I don’t use. But this box was pretty good. Let me know what you guys think in the comments!
