Now, let’s talk products:
The product assortment in this box really impressed me, and I love that a full palette full of beautiful neutrals was included! To begin experimenting with these shades, I started this look with my everyday basic face: tinted moisturizer, concealer under the eyes and on red areas, brows lightly penciled in and combed with tinted gel, creme blush, highlighter stick, and a light dusting of bronzer. I prefer a glowy skin finish rather than matte, but I concentrated a bit of powder under my eyes so that any shadow fallout wouldn’t stick. Of course, it also sets my concealer.
First up in items to try was the KNC Beauty Collagen Lip Masks. I’ve used these before, and, to be honest, I don’t love the feeling of having a jelly mask on my lips for the suggested 20 minutes. This mask felt cooling, but I didn’t notice a huge difference in plumpness. Regardless, using one of these is a nice way to prep for makeup before a special event.
Next, I went on to start my simple eye look using the Winky Luxe Kitten Palette and BoxyCharm x Luxie Quad Eye Travel Set Brushes. I dusted a bit of Duchess, a neutral matte, all over my lids and up to my brow bone as a base. Next, I applied Holographic over the lids with the 213T shading brush. To get more intense pigmentation payoff, I wet the brush with a spritz of the CoverFX illuminating setting spray and dipped it back into the shadow. I then used the 227T blending brush to bush a bit of Strut into my crease. Next, I used the 221T flat definer brush to apply 9 Lives, a metallic dark blue shade, along my top and bottom lash line. After blending it out and adding a bit of pearlescent light pink Purr to my inner corners, I finished the look with curling my lashes, black liquid liner, and mascara.
I love that this Boxycharm box included such wearable eyeshadow shades along with corresponding brushes. These items worked well together to create a cohesive eye look. They’re also both compact and convenient for travel.
My look was completed with the Laqa & Co Cloud Lips Airy Matte Lipstick in Storm. The deep berry shade was perfect for the holiday season! Lastly, the CoverFX illuminating setting spray kept everything in place and added a really lovely glowy finish. It also felt comfortable on my skin, not drying like some setting sprays can be.
Hope this was helpful in giving you a good idea of what some of these products looked like on the face! I’d love to know if you received any variations of these products and how those shades worked for you. Let me know in the comments!
