Now, on to the items!
Suva Protege Palette – Retail Value $34
(All subscribers will receive this OR a PYT Mini Straightener.)
This brand is new to me, and I’m impressed! First, the palette is free of Parabens, Sulfates, Phthalates, and Gluten! Next, the pigment! These shades are gorgeous. (The top section and highlighter on the right are cool toned, the bottom section and higlighter on the left are warm toned.) There is a mix of mattes and shimmers, and they are relatively easy to blend. (Swatched in lower photo.)
Tarte Tarteist Lip Paint in Instafamous – Retail Value $20
(All subscribers will receive Tarte Shimmering Lip Paint. Colors will vary.)
This sheer lip gloss has a high shine and lots of holographic shimmer – it’s gorgeous! (Very festive for the holdiays, too!) I love this as a lip topper over my liquid lipstick, and I have to give it bonus points for the cupcake scent!
Bodyography Lipliner in Heatherberry – Retail Value $12
More often than not, Boxycharm sends me lip colors that push me out of my comfort zone, but this lip liner is my go-to everyday shade, and I’m thrilled! The pigment is good, and it wears down evenly, too.
Here it is swatched beneath the palette and the tarte lip gloss:
Pretty Vulgar Setting Powder – Retail Value $32
(Subscribers will either receive this setting powder OR this Wander Beauty Palette.)
This setting powder packaging is so cute! I love the vintage vibe of this pink applicator puff!
And the powder formula itself is fantastic – it’s my favorite item in this box. It sets makeup, has a matte finish, and holds up well the whole day!
CosMedix Detox Activated Charcoal Mask – 1.3 oz Value Listed $30
This activated charcoal mask is designed to dry out excess oil, dirt, etc from your skin, and also provide gentle exfoliation. You apply a thick layer and let it sit for 10-15 minutes, then remove with warm water. It dried (but didn’t feel tight) and when I removed it I could instantly feel a difference in my skin – so much smoother!
Verdict: The total retail value of this box is $128! As usual, I think that’s amazing for a $21 box! I discovered some new brands this month, and got some awesome products from brands I already love (tarte + Pretty Vulgar!)
