Coastal Scents Revealed Smoky Palette – Value $20
Yay for palettes! Boxycharm has sent out quite a few of the Revealed palettes from Coastal Scents, and I’ve loved all of them! Here are all of the shades:
I’m a fan of all these colors. There is a good mix of shimmery and matte colors, and I think a lot of these shades will work well for everyday wear. (This palette is paraben-free too!) Here are some of the shades swatched:
(The Starlooks eyeliner is swatched there too). I’m very happy with the pigment on these shades. I definitely recommend using an eyeshadow primer, though.
Starlooks Luxe Longwear Eyeliner Pen – Value $19
This liquid eyeliner went on smoothly and stayed in place. I’ve sampled this before thanks to subscription boxes, and I know it is a good staple to have on hand. (It goes well with the theme of the box too).
Blinc Mascara Amplified – Value $26
I’ve tried the regular Blinc mascara formula before, and I like the Amplified formula better. This mascara is different from other mascaras in that instead of just coating your lashes, it forms “tubes” around your lashes that you can later remove with just warm water. I like that this still applies like a regular mascara, and the formula was buildable without any clumping issues. The overall look wasn’t as dramatic as my favorite tarte mascara, but it still is impressive. I’d give this mascara an A-!
Royal and Langnickel Revolution Boxycharm Brush Set – Value $23.97
These brushes are made with vegan, synthetic material, and they are so soft! Here is a closer look:
The three brushes included:
- BX-80 Detail
- BX-90 Crease
- BX-95 LG Smudger
Verdict: This box has a value of about $89. I think that’s a great value for a $21 box, and amazingly enough, that’s actually a low value for Boxycharm boxes! I’ll use everything in this box, and I really like the eye makeup theme this month. What do you think of the January 2016 Boxycharm Box?
