Each box comes with a card detailing the items included. This month’s theme is Makeup On Pointe!
Now, time for the items!
Pure Cosmetics Buff Collection Palette – Value $50
(This item is in all boxes.)
I absolutely love my Pure Cosmetics palette from the Fall FabFitFun box, so I was pumped for this box as soon as I saw this spoiler!
This palette is packaged and ready to gift – if you are able to part with it!
The colors are a mix of matte and shimmer shadows. The eyeshadows have excellent pigment, too. And it comes with a dual-sided eye shadow and blending brush!
These colors are gorgeous! And this palette also comes with a coupon for 25% off your first order of $40 or more from Pure Cosmetics:

Butter London Nail Lacquer in Ruby Murray – Value $15
Tip for applying Butter London polish – the outer cap is removable:
This shade is a gorgeous high-shine berry creme. The finish is seriously glossy. Here it is on:
I normally go with lighter nail polish shades, but I’m really liking this shade – it feels very Winter and Holiday appropriate!
Makeup Geek Full Spectrum Eye Liner Pencil in Plumeria – Value $9
(This is a variable item – not all subscribers will receive it.)
I’ve sampled a few Makeup Geek products thanks to Boxycharm, and I’m officially a fan now. (Everything I’ve tried has such great pigment!)
This burgundy eyeliner glides on so smoothly, and no surprise – the pigment is fantastic. They staying power is pretty great, too. (Swatched in lower photo.)
OFRA Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick in Napa Valley – Value $19.90
(This item is in all boxes.)
This purple liquid lipstick has a subtle metallic/micro shimmer effect, and the pigment is fantastic. It has an almost matte finish, and the formula has a cupcake flavor, too!
This color is a little too dark for me to pull off, but I’m going to try it as a liquid eyeshadow – it’s just too pretty not to use!
Here it is swatched below the eyeliner and above the palette:
Beauty For Real Lip Revitalizer – Value $14
What a pleasant surprise – I was not expecting this lip scrub to smell so wonderful!
This sugar scrub is made with a blend of vanilla, orange, and cinnamon bark essential oils. (It reminds me of a Spiced Orange Pomander Ball!) And in addition to smelling wonderful, the sugar scrub did a great job of exfoliating and moisturizing my lips.
Verdict: This box has a value of about $108! As always, the value for Boxycharm is amazing! (And I believe I have one of the lowest value variations this month, too!) The palette alone is worth more than the cost of the box (and it’s a fantastic palette), so everything else is just a bonus to me!
