Now, time for the items!
Ofra Liquid Lipstick in Santa Ana – Value $19.90
(Subscribers will either receive this shade or Tuscany.)
I’ve sampled the OFRA Cosmetics Liquid Lipstick before, and the formula is great. The finish is matte but non-drying, the pigment is fantastic, and it lasts for a while, too.
This color is a berry pink – surprisingly wearable for me! (Swatched in lower photo.)
This lip color also came with a coupon code for 30% off any OFRA Cosmetics purchase.
Real Her Play Book Eyeshadow Palette – Value $28
(Subscribers will receive version I, II, or III)
This set includes 8 shimmers (in the brown and beige family) and an intense black matte.
The pigment is pretty good across all the shades. (The lighter shades took a few more swipes to get them to show up for me, though.)
And I’m used to seeing makeup with borderline vulgar shade names, so it is a nice change to see that these eyeshadows are named things like “fabulous,” “strong,” and “creative.”

Artist Couture Diamond Glow Powder in Illuminati – Value $27
This loose powder is the most intensely pigmented and shimmery highlighter I’ve ever sampled! I can see why makeup addicts are obsessed with this brand!
The highlighter has a yellow-gold tint, and you can use it very sparingly to get a standard highlight. (So this jar should last me forever!)
Here it is swatched beneath the liquid lip and the eyeshadow palette:
(Subscribers will either receive this brush or the Aesthetica Pro Brush Series: Tapered Highlight and Blending Makeup Brush #H22.)
This brush features super soft bristles and the signature Luxie pink handle with a rose gold metal accent. The brush is designed to be used to remove excess powder, or to apply or even out highlighter.
Biobelle Facial Masks – Value $15 total
These masks are all free of parabens and phthalates! The Beauty Secret mask was gentle on my skin, too. It takes 15 minutes, and left my skin feeling super hydrated!
I’m used to doing my sheet masks as part of my nightime beauty routine, but this is a nice change! It’s a 5-minute mask you wear before you do your makeup. (Then rinse off any excess product.)
This was a nice way to give my skin some extra moisture before applying makeup, and it seemed to be on par with my regular primer, too.
This was the mask that just wasn’t for me – the rose scent was a little too much to leave on my face for 15 minutes. (If you love rose-scented products, though, I think you’ll love this!
Verdict: This box has a value of about $114! 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.)
Pretty much everything in this box was a win for me, too. And I got to try out a primer mask!
