I was ready to be disappointed with this month’s box because 1) last month was BoxyLuxe, and how do you top that and 2) it looked like the products were meh. But-I’ve been surprised.
I’m going to start with the “meh” and work up to the “yeah!”. Wander Beauty Baggage Claim Eye Masks. I got these a few months ago and didn’t like them then. Passing them on to my best friend.
*I did get an email from Boxycharm apologizing for including a product I’ve previously received, and said next month I’ll get an extra item in my Boxycharm.
These 3 under eye masks retail for 13$.
IT Cosmetics Superhero Elastic Stretch Volumizing Mascara
I hate IT Cosmetics and I hate this mascara. I’ve gotten this in countless Ipsy, Sephora Play, and from Ulta for my bday gift. I didn’t like it then and I don’t like it now. This will be given away too-retails for 24$.
Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in the shade Crucifix
It’s way darker than it photographed here, I actually like the shade-it’s s really dark chocolate brown.
It’s better than the shade my sneak peek told me I was getting, that’s a plus. I’m not overly in love with KVD as a brand though, a little problematic. I’ve got to say though, in all fairness, this is a fantastic formula. This lipstick retails for 20$.
BrioGeo Don’t Despair Repair Moisture Leave In Mask-I’m glad for this, my hair could use the moisture and this is a great brand. There’s 2 ounces, and retails for 16$.
Last, the star of the box. Pur Midnight Masquerade Palette
This is far more beautiful than I had anticipated. The left side has blush, bronzer, and highlighter and the right has 6 eyeshadows.
The face side has 2 blushes to choose from-the darker one is called Reveal, the more salmon/pink is called Hidden Secret, the bronzer is Enchantment, the highlighter is Twilight. Swatched from left to right Hidden Secret, Reveal, Enchantment, Twilight:
The blushes have a definite sheen to them as does the bronzer, so if you’re a matte blush/bronze person, you might not love it. I do though-I’m all about a sheen-y blush lately.
The shadows are pretty pigmented as well, but there’s only one matte shade. You might need to dip into another palette if you’re looking for a lighter transition shade. Or just use the face side. Top row swatched left to right: Exposed, Sneak Peek, Showtime
Mask Off, Disguise, 12AM
Showtime, the blue shimmer, is gorgeous. I love that shade-12AM is more of a dark gray shimmer than a black in my opinion. This beauty retails for 38$, and this is probably one of the best Pur palettes we’ve gotten.
The grand total value for this month is 111$. Not too shabby.
