It’s about that time again, where my excitement levels peak with the arrival of my latest Boxycharm! #Whoop
I will be honest, this month’s box didn’t have me super excited…I loved receiving it, and I love the product selection as well, but I do already own a few similar items, so I will either be regifting these or putting them away for a giveaway. Great news for you gals I guess 😉
As always, there’s a theme for the month and this month’s theme was ‘Makeup is Art’ and I think it tied in beautifully with the products they sent, as you could use them all to sculpt your face, a work of art…. So….. #WhatsInTheBox
Highlight & Contour Palette by IBY Beauty (RSP $40.00)
‘Scuplt, define and illuminate your features with the Highlight and Contour Palette. Chic and portable, this PRO-approved kit comes in 6 versatile shades.’
I love how compact this palette is and the powder looks really smooth and soft. I’m not trying this out or swatching it though, because I have my favourite NYX contour and highlight powder, so I just feel having 2 are unnecessary. 😦 My heart aches to try it out though. lol. I have a friend that I think this may be perfect for as a birthday gift, or I will put it into a giveaway I’m planning to run soon.
Round Contour Brush by Crown Pro (RSP $24.99)
‘This super soft paddle brush can be used with any liquid, powder, or cream product for a full coverage application.’
This brush feels a lot flimsier than I expected for the price, BUT those bristles are EVERYTHING! It’s so soft and dense. I’ve used this brush once with my L’Oreal Infallible Pro Matte foundation and it blended like a dream. I thought it gave me such a flawless and smooth finish. It’s so bizarre, as I swore by a damp beauty sponge and now I’m into dense brushes.
Brow Brush by The BrowGal (RSP $14.00)
‘This double ended brow brush was designed to allow for precision and creating hair like strokes, while filling the brows.’
I’ve never used a brow brush that has such a thin and precise tip. The spoolie gets through my ‘Fiela se kind’ brows without a problem and then I usually use my MAC pencil to carve out my brows, but with this brush, I can just use powder to do everything. I really love it!
Convertible Brow by The BrowGal (RSP $35.00)
‘The convertible brow is a powder/pomade duo that acts as a powder when used dry and a pomade when used wet. Each compact has a warm, neutral and ash tone to allow you to mix and create your own custom colour.’
I’ve seen good reviews on this, but won’t be using it as I plan to put it into a giveaway.
Liquid Glow by Temptu (RSP $29.50)
‘In this limited editiion collaboration with Boxycharm, Temptu introduces Liquid Glow, its first hand-applied highlighter. ‘
This highlighter I could not wait to get my hands on! I was really hoping it was similar to the Cover FX drops I know I can never afford. I want to mix this in with my foundation, but haven’t gotten around to that yet. As a highlighter though it’s beautiful, very subtle and definitely gives you a natural ‘glow from within’ sort of highlight. It would be perfect as a base for your powder highlight, when you want a more in your face type of glow.
Total box value is $143.49, almost R1900 for a cost of $29/R381. #MindBlown every month!
I’ve once again collaborated with Melanie from Melanie’s Nook so you can also read about her experience and see what she thought of her products, so check out her blog post here.
