BoxyCharm May 2019

Purchased by me

BoxyCharm continues to be my favorite beauty sub box, I’m always happy with my box.  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!

The theme for May is Make Waves and once again I love all the items in the box!

GlamGlow GentleBubble Cleanser $28. This vegan formula contains apple extract, Vitamin E ad Green Tea extract that bubble up to deep clean and remove impurities. Oat amino acids gently condition. It is mild, soap-free, and SLS and SLES-free. Formulated without: paraben, phthalate, SLS + SLES.

Alamar Colorette Blush Trio $22. This is the product I’m most excited about. This vegan palette imparts a sun-kissed flush without the damage of the sun rays. There are 3 colorways available. I got medium/tan and should have received fair/light but it’s okay because I love the three shades in the palette. Seclusion is a pretty peach, Isla is a pinky coral and Toasted is a beautiful mauve. These shades are nicely pigmented and will be perfect for summer.

Ciate London Eye Lustre Creme Eyeshadow $22 Ciate is a such an underrated brand. I have a few eyeshadow palettes and lip products from the brand that I love so I was thrilled to get this in my box! I received the shade Cupid which is a pinky lavender that flashes gold. Just gorgeous! I can see this with black winged liner and a pretty pink lip and a little black dress. It’s fun and full of sparkle.

PUR Pro Eyelash Curler $18. I can always use a lash curler, especially since I lost two in the last month. Actually, I think one is in my sisters makeup bag. I do prefer my Tweezerman curler though.

Oryza Opaline Top Gloss $15. This is basically iridescent sparkle on a pale pink base. It wouldn’t wear it alone because it dries down to a sticky finis. Over a hydrating lipstick it might be okay and the color is really beautiful. Since it does dry down so much I might try it on my eyes.

Bottom Line: Overall, this is a very nice box. I’m a little disappointed in the gloss, but I’m happy with the rest. This months box has a value of $105 for only $21!
