BoxyCharm - April 2015

It is that wonderful time of the month again where my BoxyCharm box arrives and I get to try out all sorts of awesome, new products! Just in case you forgot, BoxyCharm is a monthly subscription box that sends out full-size and luxury-size samples of high end and on-trend brands. Best part? A BoxyCharm box has a low cost of only $21, plus free shipping! This month the theme is April Bloom which is packed full of products that will have you ready for spring and all of the wonderful blooms ahead!

Up first was a Mini Roller Fragrance by Harvey Prince in Hello ($21). This smells so good! I love when BoxyCharm includes perfumes because I have absolutely loved them all! This has citrus base surrounded by flowers and a little sweet vanilla. It is so good! Up next, is a product by a brand that you all know I love: Coolway. Their Smoothing Lotion ($24.95) conditions your hair with vitamins and proteins to help tame it. I have pretty frizzy hair and this actually kept it tame all day, even in the Georgia heat and humidity. It also didn't make my hair greasy or hard which is a huge plus. It smells good too!

Also included was a Vincent Longo Eye Pencil ($26). This double sided pencil comes with the shades Brown Orofila and Golden Moss. One is a chocolate brown with golden shimmer and the other is a mossy green with a little bit of gold in it. These are great and stay in place all day without smudging or fading. I really liked Golden Moss smudged under my eyes for a subtle pop of color. I think it complimented my hazel eyes quite well.

Unfortunately, I must have accidentally deleted my pictures of the next product which is the OFRA Derma Mineral Powder in Pink Sapphire ($35). This is a very shimmery powder that you can use anywhere on your body. Though it looks a little dark in the picture, it is actually quite light and could even be used as a highlight. The tub is also pretty cool as well. You can turn a dial to cover and uncover the sifter holes so it doesn't create a mess rolling around in your purse or makeup storage!

The last item included was the Revealed 2 Palette by Coastal Scents ($39.95). I am sure you remember me raving about the original Revealed Palette and this one is just as beautiful. I swatched a few of the twenty shades included and you can see that the color payoff, and range, is pretty good. They also aren't very powdery and apply with little to no fallout. The shades mostly have a rose gold undertone which I really love and this palette could create seemingly endless looks by itself. I give this one an A+ just like the original. I am no makeup artist by any means, but I did create a look which I included in a picture down below only using this palette's eyeshadow.

As always, I loved my BoxyCharm box! With a retail value of $146.90, $21 is an amazing cost to pay!! It is a great value and awesome way to try out new beauty products. Be sure to head over to their site to sign up and see past boxes. Also, follow BoxyCharm on FacebookInstagram and Twitter to never miss any news or promotions! 

Disclosure: I may receive products in exchange for an honest review. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I personally believe will be good for my readers.

  1. I am impressed. This is definitely high-end. That 20 shade palette alone is worth more than the price of the whole box. I am very, very tempted.
