The Goods

  1. Hand Applied Highlighter – Temptu x BOXYCHARM. Regular price: $24.00

Ignite your glow with this high-impact, creamy liquid formula that is smooth, blendable and long-wearing. Liquid Glow builds from a sheer shimmer to interstellar iridescence and is so versatile it can be blended with moisturizer or foundation, to highlight bare skin or layered as a finishing touch. Cosmos is designed in a rose gold hue that flatters every skin tone. I mix this with my face moisturizer before I go to the beach for a subtle glow, and use it as the highlighter when I do my contour makeup. It creates a radiant glimmer wherever it is applied.

  1. Powder Highlighter & Contour Palette – IBY. Regular price: $40.00

Sculpt, define, and illuminate your features with the Highlight and Contour Palette. Chic and portable, this pro-approved kit comes in 6 versatile shades and includes an easy-to-follow makeup guide to achieve your most natural contoured look. When I do contour makeup I stick to either powder or liquid only for my face. The powder contour is great for work and daytime activities because it produces a shine-free, matte finish. Liquid is great for night time because it gives my skin a dewy glow. This powder kit makes applying contour easy with all the shades in one palette. The color is buildable depending on the intensity I am going for, below is how my contour turned out when I used this palette.

  1. Contour Paddle Brush – Crown x BOXYCHARM. Regular price: $24.00

IMG_3756

I have such a hard time finding good makeup brushes, almost all that I’ve tried are too soft to blend well or hold enough product. This brush is AmAzInG and solves both of those problems. The bristles are dense and sturdy, they can pick up as much makeup as I need and it’s so thick it blends makeup almost like a sponge. I absolutely love this makeup brush, I use it every day now!

  1. The Convertible Brow – BrowGal. Regular price: $35.00

This powder/pomade duo acts as a powder when used dry and a pomade when used wet. There is a great tutorial video I found on youtube that shows how to use it both ways here. Each compact has a warm, neutral, and ash tone to allow you to mix and match your perfect, custom color. Once used wet, the pallet will revert back to powder consistency, ensuring the product does not dry out. I’ve tried a lot of eyebrow color products like liquid and marker type eyebrow makeup and this versatile powder definitely takes the cake.

  1. Brow Brush – BrowGal. Regular price: $14.00

The BrowGal full size, double ended brow brush. Designed to still allow for precision, hair like strokes while filling in the brows. One side is a spoolie to brush through the brows, blend product or erase any mistakes. A firm brush on the opposite end for ultimate precision and control. This is the brush they use to apply the Convertible Brow in the video above. The brush on this is perfectly angled and precise for perfect brows every time.

Value

The products in this month’s box are worth $137.00. That’s well over 6x what I pay for BOXYCHARM, so I’d say this is a great value! If you are someone who subscribes to more than one of the cheaper $10/mo boxes, you would definitely get more bang for your buck to cancel 2 of those and use that money for this box. Full size products go a LONG way. It’s just so nice to get all these high end beauty products that I normally couldn’t (or wouldn’t) afford in full sizes for longer lasting products. I love every single thing in this month’s box… Again!

Use this link and sign up for BOXYCHARM today! They have a wait list but I got accepted after just two weeks.
