November 2014 Boxy Charm: Sparkle and Shine First Impression

To feed my make up addition, I have subscriptions services. I have tried quite a few. ( Beauty Army, Ipsy, Birchbox, etc) The ones I have kept are Boxy Charm and Lip Monthly.

BoxyCharm is a monthly subscription where you get 3- 5 full sized items and it varying from hair care, makeup and nail care. You pay $21/Mo and you get way over what paid for it. This month’s theme is Sparkle and Shine.

SPARKLE AND SHINE

( 5 full size items -Retail for this box is $120.89 -125.89)

Here is what the box contains:

1 MicaBeauty Eye Primer ( Retail Value $44.95)

This eye primer is the real deal. It provides full coverage and is thick but can be blended easily. I tried a ‘not so greatly’ pigmented eye shadow and BAM the color shined through nicely. 

1 Ofra Pressed Blush in Paradise Pink ( Retail Value $24.95)

This is a great, and I do mean great blush. I totally didn’t expect it to look so nice because it is a deep mauve toned pink with shimmer. It is very pigmented and you don’t need much at all. You will probably need a stippling brush to blend it out, but it will look gorgeous on all skin tones and give a natural glow! It has a mirror in it so you can take it for a touch up and can be used wet or dry! Love at first swatch.

1 Tarina Tarantino Eyelicity Glitter Liner in Glitter Mist ( Retail Value $16.00)

Another winner for me. This color is so pretty and glides on very well with the brush applicator. This can be used over an eyeliner or blended with eye shadow. I cannot wait to use it this weekend. The only thing I did not really like, the bottle looked partially empty or had a lot of air in it. But it was completely new. 

1 Kevin Murphy Color Bug in White (Retail Value $20-25.00)

I have to say I am not to thrilled with this one. I was going to try it but the directions say you need to make sure you cover yourself or use protective gear…. hmmmm yeah no Ill pass but it was a nice idea. 

1 bellapierre Shimmer Powder ( Retail Value $14.99)

This was one was another one that I was ok with. I had gotten a similar one that was taupe gorgeous shimmer in the color Harmony. This one is a very sheer one but is buildable in the color EXCITE. Although as you see on my hand above … it is barely there. I wonder if you can use it for a highlight as well? May have to try it. Has anyone else used it in a way other than for the eye lids? Please comment below. 

All in all this box is again another hit for me. It was a mix of interesting, different, shimmery, shiny things… I cannot wait for this weekend to try some of them out.
