BOXYCHARM ⋆February 2018⋆ REVIEW & SWATCHES

BoxyCharm is a monthly beauty subscription service that includes 4 to 5 beauty full-sized items (varies from makeup, skincare, fragrance, haircare, and tools) for $21 a month including shipping. There is a slight variation for the items, but most products the subscribers receive will be the same. Every Boxycharm box contains products worth over $100.00 in value. BoxyCharm is currently available in both U.S. and Canada.

 

ITEM #1 

CoverFX
Shimmer Veil In Amethyst 
– FULL SIZE! VALUE $28.00!

The new Shimmer Veil is a liquid glitter that you can use on anywhere you want. The shade Amethyst is a shimmery iridescent lavender with multidimensional pink and silver sparkles. The pigmentation is opaque, and you can layer it up for an intense finish, or sheer it out for a glimmering look. The formula is creamy and crease-free. There were no fallouts once it settled down. The Shimmer Veil is kind of similar to the Stila Glitter & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow (click here to read my review about the Stila Glitter), but the sparkles are finer compared to the Stila ones.

I put a little bit of the Shimmer Veil in the middle of my eyes with an eyeshadow brush, and my neutral eye makeup look instantly became more interesting.

ITEM #2

Ofra Cosmetics
Pop-Up Palette with Blush Godget Pan Refill in Winter Rose Glow – FULL SIZE! VALUE $21.00 and $12.00!

The magnetic customizable palette has a Z-shaped closure, and it can stand up with the support of the fully opened covers. It is about the size of a book, and I think this is a much more travel-friendly and practical customizable palette. The ones I already own are extra large one and mini-sized ones. The blush refill Winter Rose Glow is a matte warm brownish orange with a small amount of shimmer. The color gives you that healthy, vibrant look with a glow. The formula is easy to blend with a medium, buildable color payoff.

I used all the products from my February Boxycharm box for the full face makeup below. I also used the products from my February Ipsy Glam Bag for this look, click here to read my review about that.

ITEM #3

Vintage Cosmetics
Smokey Eye Pencil  – FULL SIZE! VALUE $21.00!

A nice and smooth black eyeliner with long-lasting and smudge-proof effect. The pigmentation is not ultra black, and it is more of a charcoal black. To be honest, I was expecting products that I do not already own from beauty subscription services. hings that are adventurous and fun to try. This is indeed a good black eyeliner, but I really do not need another black eyeliner.

ITEM #4

 

PUR
Lips Plumping Lip Exfoliator – FULL SIZE! VALUE $17.00!

This is a lip pen-shaped/stick form lip exfoliator, and the direction is very simple. Put the exfoliator pen on clean lips, and the products will start melting because of the temperature of your lips. Gently rub your lips, then remove the excess with a paper towel. The exfoliator has a sweet, sugary flavor. It is definitely one of those more gritty lip exfoliators, but the final result is very satisfying. My lips felt baby soft, and all the dead skins were gone.

ITEM #5

Crown Pro
Trio Brush Set  – FULL SIZE! VALUE $29.99!

The last but not the least, three beautiful synthetic makeup brushes from  Crown Pro. The ombre pink and white bristles are soft and densely packed. There was no shedding and the brushes applied/blended out products nicely to the face. There are also dents on the handle, and they make your hands more comfortable when grabbing the brushes. I used the largest pointy brush for contouring, the medium round brush for highlighting, and the smallest flat brush for applying eyeshadow.

Overall, all 5 items add up to a total value of $127.00! I love the CoverFX Shimmer Veil In Amethyst and Ofra Cosmetics
Pop-Up Palette with Blush Godget Pan Refill in Winter Rose Glow
. Everything else is also good, but I still want more adventurous items in the future boxes. Sorry for uploading this review so late, the March box has already shipped out, and I will be reviewing that soon!
