Boxycharm pulled some trickery on me this month-I never got an email with shipping notification so yes, I was griping-but she just showed up unannounced in my mailbox today and could not have been more welcome.
This month’s theme is “Boxy Baddie” and there are 6 items instead of the usual 5.
First, we have the MAC eyebrow pencil in Lingering-
It twists to get the product out, FYI (some people had a hard time) and here’s a swatch-
MAC describes it as self-propelling and self-sharpening, so there’s that. Retails for 18$. That’s kind of a lot for an eyebrow pencil with no spoolie, right? But, MAC.
I also received the Briogeo Don’t Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Mask-
It smells REALLY good-sort of coconut-y. It’s full size at 2 ounces and retails for 20$. I’ll be trying it today.
Next? Colourpop Ultra Satin Lip in Strip-
The Ultra Satin Lip formula is nice-the Ultra Matte, in my opinion is very unforgiving and tends to be super drying and flaky. It depends on the color as to just how flaky and drying-but this formula is more moisturizing, softer, and applies more smoothly. It dries down to a semi-matte. These retail for 6$.
I got the bareMinerals Perfecting Face brush-yay, I wanted this one-
It’s got a little reservoir in the middle to put your foundation, and the bristles are nice and soft-
The reservoir is not as deep as it looks in this photo though. This brush retails for 28$.
Also, I got the Studio Makeup Loose Blush. I don’t see a shade name though-but you get A LOT of product. 7 grams-that’s a ton.
You know-it did not seem that pigmented-to get that payoff I had to do around 8 finger swatches. That said, it’s very possible that it performs better on the face with a brush. This retails for 35$.
Last but never least, the star of the box-the pür Soirée Diaries Eyeshadow Palette-
Nice, large mirror, y’all. You’ve got 8 mattes and 4 shimmers-
Like my fingernail divot in the last pan? Neither do I 😩 when I pulled off the plastic protective cover, boom.
Next is the matte swatches. The first row shades are crazy light, so you won’t see much.
The mattes swatched sort of meh-but again, probably will be different applied.
But the shimmers swatched so beautifully, pigmented AF and gorgeous-
Love. This palette retails for 34$.
All told the retail value of this box is 141$. Amazing, for 21$- seriously.
Hope you enjoyed!
