I feel like I’ve been waiting for this box for weeks, but it shipped on the 8th, got here today. From GA. Talk about snail mail. SmartPost my ass. Anyway, she’s here and I’m glad.
The first item is the Butter London Double Decker mascara:
The brush isn’t anything revolutionary, just your normal typical mascara wand. The formula is thick-ish, so it looks promising. This mascara retails for 20$, and can be found at Ulta.
The next item for March is Pretty Vulgar Make Them Blush in the shade Hush Blush:
The lighting makes this look way more pink than it actually is-the next photo is more true to color. This one just showed the packaging well, and the packaging is super cute. Below is the actual shade:
More of a dusky-nude pink. Swatched:
The formula is slightly dry-it’s not creamy or buttery but it’s super pigmented, so use a light hand at first. You can find Pretty Vulgar at Sephora, and this blush retails for 26$.
We’ve got a 3 pack of under eye gels from South Mane Beauty:
I tried them this afternoon-they tend to slip a little, and you’re supposed to keep them on for 30 minutes (which seems long) but my under eyes felt pretty hydrated and moisturized, so not too shabby. They’ve got a flowery scent-not overpowering though. This 3 pack retails for 10$.
Here we have a set of 3 eyeshadow brushes from The Vintage Cosmetic Company.
The bristles are SOFT. I’m looking forward to using these-they’re cute, numbered in the order you use them with cute little sayings. These sell for 23.15$.
Lastly, the pür x Boxycharm eyeshadow palette.
The packaging is actually pretty nice-and the shades😍-
The bright colors? Need them in my life. Swatched from the bottom of my arm to wrist:
Pürfect, Nakey, Belle, Squad
Charmer, Alliance, Bae, ATL
Duet, MIA, BFF, Boxy Black
Now, this is a meh for me. The bottom row with the blue, pink, etc stained my arm. This is after soap, water, and scrubbing:
I’m not sure how I feel about that. The shades were on my arm less than 5 mins, guys. So staining like that? I have a lot of palettes and none have stained my skin. Just beware.
This palette has 5 mattes, 5 shimmers, and the black is sort of a matte with gold glitter, I’d call it. It’s pretty-the gold glitter didn’t really show in the swatch but it’s there. The shimmers are super pigmented-the first 2 mattes on the top row seemed a little chalky but workable. I’m looking forward to a lot of looks with this palette-and it retails for 36$.
So there it is, the March Boxycharm. The grand total is 115.15$ which ain’t too shabby.
Talk soon, Lovelies
