I’m so excited to share my first Boxycharm of the year with all of you. If you’re just tuning in, Boxycharm is a beauty box subscription ($21usd per month) that sends you 4-5 FULL SIZE products straight to your door. In my opinion this is one of the best beauty box subscriptions out especially for the low price. This month’s box theme is Rock and Roll Soul, below is everything I received in my box.

  • Brandt Pores No More Luminizer Primer
  • IT Cosmetics Brow Power Universal Eyebrow Pencil
  • Crown Pro Glam Metals Palette
  • PUR The Complexion Authority Bronze and Brighten Cheek Palette
  • GIRLACTIK Matte Lip Paint Demure

BoxyCharm January 2018 (1)


 Dr. Brandt Pores No More Luminizer Primer: This luminizer primer delivers a natural radiant glow while blurring pores and imperfections for a beautifully illuminated flawless complexion. This is my new favorite primer, it’s lightweight and feels so nice on the skin, my pores don’t feel like they’re suffocating when I wear it; and the shimmer in this primer is awesome, not too much and not too little.

IT Cosmetics Brow Power Universal Eyebrow Pencil: Developed with plastic surgeons, IT Cosmetics’ #1 best-selling, award-winning eyebrow pencil is infused with brow-enhancing biotin, lecithin, saw palmetto, nettle, green tea, antioxidants, grape seed, and vitamins A, B5, C and E, plus proprietary Brow Power Technology to give you your most beautiful, natural-looking brows – even if you have none at all. Plus, its universal transforming shade adjusts to all hair colors based on pressure, its exclusive oval tip mimics the look of real hair and it includes a built-in grooming spooley brush for polished perfect! I’m not big into doing my brows, I usually just leave them alone but I decided I’d test out this pencil and see how it worked and I’m so glad I did, this pencil made my brows come to life without looking fake.

Crown Pro Glam Metals Palette: Rock your look with the Crown Pro Glam Metals Eyeshadow palette! These highly pigmented, ultra blendable shadows make smokey eye looks a breeze. This palette is similar to ColourPop and Winky Lux palettes that I’ve used. This palette does have a cute mirror in the shape of a guitar which I think is a nice addition for cosmetic appeal. All of the shadows are smooth and velvety, they have nice pigmentation and blend together nicely; they have little to no fallout with the exception of Black Metal.

PUR The Complexion Authority Bronze and Brighten Palette: An on-the-go highlight, bronzer and blush palette with three skin perfecting powders to create an effortless and sun-kissed glow on every skin tone. Featuring PUR’s fan favorites Afterglow and Mineral Glow along with a new blush shade, Blushing Glow throw this in your bag and you’re ready to go! When I received my box my highlight and blush were busted (frowny face), I emailed BoxyCharm and they are sending me out a replacement palette YAY.  In the mean time I’ve attempted to repress my broken palette. Aside from this palette arriving broken the formula is amazing, it’s highly pigmented, filled with shimmer and shine and velvety soft. The highlighter is a soft champagne, the blush is a coral and at first glance I didn’t think it would suit my skin tone very well but was surprised that it does and gives me a beautiful glow, the bronzer also appeared to be a bit too dark but again it complimented my skin tone and looked wonderful. I also love that all of these are easy to build up and blend out.

GIRLACTIK Matte Lip Paint: One of the original liquid lipstick formulas that is still true to its words – it’s lightweight, long wearing, non-cracking and won’t settle. I received the shade Demure it’s a beautiful muted Merlot red, it’s very opaque and glided smooth and evenly on the lips and dried matte. This liquid lipstick does have a slight sweet scent but it disappears once it’s applied to the lips.

  1. I got the same box, except I received a Grande Lips plumper in a dark purple. I’m sorry to hear about your face palette, my eye shadow palette had a broken pan and I’m going to try to repress it. I’ve contacted BoxyCharm but haven’t heard back yet.
