Another month, another BoxyCharm review!
At the beginning of each month, I’m always checking Boxycharm’s Instagram to see sneak peeks of what they’re offering each month! Septembers Boxycharm is a good one! This month’s theme is All Access. All Access makes you think of events, right? So whatever they were adding to the boxes, they had to be things that would be great for events or parties. That’s especially exciting since the holidays are right around the corner!
Before I get into my products, I wanted to let you guys know that I’m posting to YouTube again and I made a video reviewing what I got! I also created a makeup look using these products.
Products In My September Box
Tarte | Clay Play Face Shaping Palette ($45)
First Impression: This is the first product that I pulled out of the box and I was automatically excited because Tarte is one of my favorite brands. This palette contains 12 Amazonian clay powdered shades including three bronzers. The shades are gorgeous!
Review: When I opened the palette up, I was in love. I love neutral colors in general, but it’s fall now so it’s time to start creating the best smokey eyes! The eyeshadows are also smooth and silky. Before this palette, I only had one bronzer that I liked using but it still wasn’t the best. This palette gives me three! They’re all so beautiful on the skin too.
Dr Brandt | Hydro Biotic Recovery Sleeping Mask ($52)
First Impression: The sleeping mask claims to reduce redness, irritation, and locks in moisture overnight. As a girl who deals with very dry and irritated skin, I was super happy to see that I received this! I’ve also heard great things about this brand in general so that was a plus in my book.
Review: The texture of this mask is very silky and almost water-like when you apply it to your face. I put a dime size on my fingers and worked it into my skin. When I woke up the next morning, my skin looked healthy and felt hydrated!
Moda | 5 pc Brush Set ($27.95)
First Impression: Getting more brushes to add to my brush collection is never a problem! I was excited to see that I got this along with the Tarte palette I got as well. I knew I was going to have fun pairing them both and creating a fun eye look!
Review: I automatically had to take them out of the package and feel the bristles – so soft! I think the part that I really love is how the handles are textured for a nice grip and they’re labeled! Since I’ve been applying eyeshadow for a few years now, I know what certain brushes are for but this would have been a lifesaver when I was first getting serious about makeup. When applying my eyeshadow, the brushes blended everything beautifully!
Hank & Henry | Blickity Black Eye Liner ($20)
First Impression: I’m running out of eyeliner all the time so I’m so thankful to get this in my box! This eyeliner is vegan and claims to dry into a satin/matte finish. It also says its ‘extremely’ long-wearing and transfer-resistant. Yes, please!
Review: To be honest, I’m completely blown away by this eyeliner! It’s the best I’ve used in years. The tip is perfectly long and the amount of product that comes out is amazing. I barely even had to press it against my eyelid for the rich black pigment to glide across! I will hands-down purchase this again after it runs out.
Billion Dollar Brow | The Microblade Effect Brow Pen ($18)
First Impression: Now this product, I think I squealed a bit over because I’ve been needing a good brow product. It’s supposed to mimic the look of actual brow hairs for a more natural look. The brow product I’ve been using is nice but it creates more of a dramatic look. This brow pen also claims to be long-lasting!
Review: Sadly, I wasn’t too impressed with this product. I had high hopes for it and I loved the idea. Although, not a lot of product came out of it. It almost felt like it was dried out so maybe it was just a dud! When I was able to get some product come out of it though, the result was beautiful!
What’s It Worth?
Amazing products, right? Now let’s add it all up and see how much everything in the box is worth.
Wow. For only paying $21 for the whole box this month, I basically got $141 of products for free! That’s insane. If you like getting a bang for your buck, Boxycharm is where it’s at. If you’re interested in trying Boxycharm, click here!
I hope you enjoyed this post as much as I loved making it! Remember, there will be a video up on my YouTube channel if you like watching reviews and seeing how I created a subtle fall look with these products.
