BoxyCharm Subscription Box Review – February 2018
BoxyCharm is a full-size beauty and makeup subscription box. They always provide a great value compared the cost of the box. (If you are a makeup addict – I HIGHLY recommend this box!)
This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
The Subscription Box: BoxyCharm
The Cost: $21 a month

Each box comes with a card detailing the items included.
Now, time for the items!
Crown Pro Trio Brush Set – Retail Value $29.99
All subscribers will receive this brush set.
The smallest brush is designed for concealer, the medium brush can be used for applying foundation or contouring, and the larger brush is for setting powder.
The bristles are synthetic, super soft, densely packed, and the pink is a cute touch!
CoverFX Shimmer Veil Amethyst – Retail Value $28
All subscribers will receive this item.
This is the hero item in the box for me – it is stunning! It’s a liquid shimmer that goes on thin, and you can blend or build up the color. No fall out, and no creasing issues either!
And it’s a pretty versatile product, too. You can use it as a lip topper, an eyeshadow, and a highlighter!

Ofra Cosmetics Pop-Up Palette – Retail Value $21
Subscribers will either receive this palette with the blush below or Naked Cosmetics Highlighter Palette.
If you aren’t familiar, this is a magnetic palette that allows you to customize it with the pans of your choice. While I would have loved to receive the highlighter palette, this is such a practical item – I’m very happy to have it!
And it comes with:
OFRA Cosmetics Blush Winter Rose Glow Pan – Retail Value $12
This is a warm brown blush with great pigment. The finish is matte, just a hint of shimmer throughout.
Here it is in the palette:

Vintage Cosmetics Smokey Eye Pencil – Retail Value $21
This item has been in all the spoiler variations we’ve seen so far, but it is not confirmed if all subscribers will receive it.
Black eye liners aren’t the most exciting subscription box item, but I will say that this one has impressive staying power for a pencil.
Here it is swatched below the blush, and above the Shimmer Veil:
Can you see why I’m obsessed with that Shimmer Veil?
PUR Lips Plumping Lip Exfoliator – Retail Value $17
(Based on spoilers, subscribers will either receive this item, Bellapierre Cosmetic Glitter, or Seraphine Botanicals Sugar + Lemon Moisturizing Lip Buffer.)
I have to admit, I wasn’t too excited about this product (it was the last thing I tried), but it is the surprise win in the box for me! I’ve sampled so many lip scrubs but none have been in a stick form, and after trying this, stick form makes so much sense! The application was super easy, the sugar exfoliation was delicious, and my lips are extra moisturized, too.
Verdict: This box has a value of about $127! As always, the value for Boxycharm is amazing! I’ll use everything in this box, and it’s a good mix of exciting and fun makeup (Shimmer Veil) and super practical items (Z palette, lip exfoliator).
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 you.)
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? Possibly. Boxycharm is in waitlist mode, so I recommend signing up ASAP. They’ll email you when your first box ships, so you’ll know which box you’ll be getting as your first month.
