BoxyCharm Beauty Subscription Box Review – October 2014
BoxyCharm is a full-size and deluxe-size makeup and beauty subscription box. When they first started they were featuring drugstore brands like Revlon and L’Oreal, but lately they’ve been using mid-tier and high-end brands. (If you check out my earlier BoxyCharm reviews, you can definitely see the improvement in curation!)
BoxyCharm kindly sent me this box to review. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
The Subscription Box: BoxyCharm
The Cost: $21 a month
The Products: 5-6 drugstore beauty items that will include nail care, skin care, makeup, haircare, fragrance and more. (At least 4 of those items will be full-sized).
Ships to: US
Each box comes with a card detailing the products included.
Cult Cosmetics & BoxyCharm Nail Polish Shady Collection – Value $21 total
This set is launching in BoxyCharm boxes, and it is very appropriate for Halloween! The bottles are kind of tiny (.25 oz), but that works for me since I don’t wear dark colors that often.
STARLOOKS Ultra Gem Pencil in Ultra Turquoise – Value $14
This eye liner goes on smooth and is very pigmented. The color is a shimmery robin’s egg blue. I can’t do a fuchsia pink eye look though, so this eyeshadow will be swapped or gifted.
Getting a full-size skincare item in a box is always a huge win for me since I’ll be able to use it for weeks and actually get to see if I get results! This serum is made with natural and organic ingredients, so I’m hoping it’s a winner!
Coastal Scents Eclipse Concealer Palette – Value $19.95 (On Sale for $14.95)
I was pretty excited to try out this palette – contouring is one of those makeup tricks I’ve always wanted to try but never got around to buying the different colored concealers I would need to actually do it. I did my first attempt at contouring today, and I definitely need to watch a few more youtube tutorials! I like the formula of the concealers though – they were very easy to blend out.
Verdict: I’m pretty much always impressed with BoxyCharm these days, and the October box is another good box for me! This month’s box has a value over $115 too – amazing!
