IBY Powder Highlight & Contour Palette – Value $40
(Subscribers will either receive this palette or the Beauty Creations Contour Cream Palette)
This palette includes 3 pressed powder contours, and 3 pressed powder highlight shades.
I rarely do a full-contoured face, but I like contouring a bit around my hairline, so I was excited to try this. I like that the palette includes both warm and cool tones, and the pigment is good, too. The most important thing with contouring is being able to blend out the colors easily, and these formulas are perfect for that.

This liquid highlighter was created for Boxycharm! It has a rose gold hue and a microshimmer finish (AKA it doesn’t look like you are wearing glitter on your face). It’s super blendable, too.
You can use this blended in with your liquid foundation or apply it on top of makeup. And the great thing about liquid highlighters is you can use a few drops to add some shimmer to body lotion!
Here is the highlighter swatched above the contouring palette:
Paddle Brush from Crown – Value $24.95
This brush includes a cap cover!
I LOVE this brush! The bristles are so soft and densely packed – it is perfect for blending.
And the design makes it super easy to hold.
I appreciate that Boxycharm included this with the palette – they pair together really well.
I’ve received this brow palette before thanks to the Spring 2017 BeautyCon Box, and it’s a great trio.
This set can be used as a powder with a dry application, or as a pomade when applied with a wet brush.
The pigment in these colors is great. And the pans are a good size for a brow powder – I think this will last me a year!
Here are all three shades swatched:
The Brow Brush from The BrowGal – Value $14
It also came with a spoolie/angled brush for application.
Verdict: This box has a value of about $138! As always, the value for Boxycharm is amazing! I think Boxycharm is a perfect subscription for people who love makeup. You’re going to get a lot of palettes, highlighters, etc., so it’s great if you want to build your collection and try all the things! (If you only need one highlighter/palette in your makeup arsenal, this might not be the best box for yo.)
