BoxyCharm April 2019 Box!

Purchased by me

BoxyCharm continues to be my favorite beauty sub box, it never fails to deliver.  It costs $21/month but the value is much, much higher. You get 5-6 beauty items each month that include nail care, skin care, makeup, haircare, fragrance and more with at least 4 of those items being full-sized. The box ships to the US and Canada. Each box has a theme with a card detailing the items inside. You can cancel at any time, but I doubt you’ll want to!

April’s theme is Peace, Love Boxy with a festival vibe thanks to the PUR Cosmetics Festival Palette $36.

PUR Cosmetics Festival Pressed Pigment Palette $36. Full of sunset shades, a few vivid pops of color, and some glitter this is a surprisingly wearable palette. There are several pretty shimmery neutrals, some warm mattes, and a bright pink and purple I use as liners. I won’t use the glitter shades–they are straight up pressed glitter in gold and red. While this type of palette isn’t my jam, I appreciate and will use the neutral shades and the pigment and texture is excellent.

Free Spirit, Psychedelic, Good Vibes, Peace
Epic, Gypsy, Wild Child, 24K Magic
All Night, Hidden Desert, Sunset, Fireworks

I used Epic, a matte pastel peach in the crease, Peace, a metallic bronze on the lid, Sunset, a shimmery coral pink in the outer corner. Then I lined my lower lashes with Gypsy, a vivid purple.

Luxie Summer Daze 3-pc. Brush Set $28. I’m always happy when I see Luxie brushes in a box so I’m thrilled with this 3-pc. set. Last months box had makeup brushes too but this Luxie set is different. There is a flat brush for packing color on the eyes, an eyeshadow blending brush and a contour/blush brush. I love the pink handles that fade into a yellow/green ombre.

Artist Couture Diamond Glow Powder $27. This all-natural, vegan and cruelty-free loose powder can be used on cheeks or body. It feels very soft and silky. It’s a stunning duochrome sunny gold that shifts to pink. It will look fabulous on the collarbone, shoulders and decollete in the summer months. This is what I think of when I think of festivals!

Bodyography Eye Pencil in Bali Bronze $14. This smooth eye pencil glides on thanks to coconut oil infused in the formula. Bali Bronze is a pretty gold/bronze that I love on my blue eyes! The shade is perfect for a bronzey summer look.

Butter London Power Up Mascara $20. The formula for this mascara is on the wet side which I like, however, I don’t normally like a curved wand. This one is only slightly curved with tons of little rubber bristles to separate lashes so I’m okay with it.

BoxyCharm continues to be my favorite subscription box and I look forward to it every month. Even though I won’t be attending any festivals this year, I’ll use everything in this box. True, I won’t use all the shades in the PUR Festival palette but I WILL use the pretty neutrals. I’m happy to get more Luxie brushes, the glow powder, eye pencil and mascara too. April’s box has a total value of $125–not bad for $21!
