Here they are swatched:
Excellent pigment and shimmer. There is some fallout on the shadows so make sure to use a good primer.
(Also props to Boxycharm for sending us a palette with some unique colors!)
Pretty Vulgar “Make Them Blush” Powder Blush in Prim Vixen – Retail Value $26
This item is in all boxes. All subscribers will receive either the shade Prim Vixen or Hush Blush.
I love everything about this blush! The packaging is so cute, the pigment and staying power are fantastic, and the formula is cruelty-free, paraben-free, sulfate-free, and phthalate-free!
It’s a bright pink shade with a matte finish. While it can be a pretty bold look for my skin tone, I was able to blend it out to a shade that works well for me.
Here it is swatched:

The Vintage Company Smokey Eye Brush Set – Retail Value $23.27
All subscribers will receive this item.
This set includes a step by step approach for using brushes to get a smokey eye look:
Step 1: Use the shadow brush to sweep a light, shimmery color over your lids.
Step 2: Use the angled shadow brush to apply a darker shadow to your crease and outer corners.
Step 3: Use the smudger brush to blend the colors together, to use an even darker color to accentuate the crease, and/or to add color below your lash line.
(Smudger, Angled Shadow Brush, Shadow Brush)
These brushes are made with soft, synthetic bristles, and are a perfect companion to the PUR palette!
South Mane 3 Eye Gel Packs – Retail Value $9
This item is a possible variant, but so far it has been in all box variations we’ve seen.
The pack includes 3 sets of eye masks.
I found these to be on par with most of the eye gels I’ve sampled. They were gentle on my skin and left my undereye area feeling refreshed.
Butter London Iconoclast Mascara – Retail Value $20
This item is a variant. Subscribers will receive 1 of 5 different mascaras.
This mascara delivered on volume, length, and overall bold lashes – I’m impressed. Just FYI – the formula went on a little wet and took a few minutes to fully dry.
Verdict: This box has a value of about $114.27! As always, the value for Boxycharm is amazing! This box has lots of makeup I can use for everyday looks, some useful makeup brushes, and a very fun palette – I’m thrilled with the March box!
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.)
