For years, I’ve been receiving Ipsy bags and writing my reviews for those. On the 25th of June, I made the decision to pause Ipsy and try something new. I was tired of only getting samples and my Ipsy bag stash has been piling up. I’ve been seeing people loving Boxycharm so I thought, why not? For $20/month you supposedly get 5 full-sized products worth over $100. That sounded too good to be true so I needed some proof, you know?
The Day It Arrived
I’ll be honest, I was so excited to get this package that I was clicking that tracking link every morning to see where my package was. The morning that I clicked it and it said my package was in transit to my house, I was doing a little dance around my living room. Yes, makeup makes me that happy. Don’t judge me. But that excitement only grew when I saw that black box sitting in my mailbox.
What’s In The Box
Tarte – Be You. Naturally. Eyeshadow Palette
When it comes to eye shadow, I like to keep it natural and smoke it out a bit. Seeing the colors, I knew this was going to be one of my favorite palettes! There are 4 shimmer shades and 4 matte shades. Every shade is packed with great pigment, blends well, and creates a beautiful look.
The listing price is $36. This one product covers what you pay for this whole box plus some!
Steve Laurant Jelly Highlighter in Cotton Candy
If you’ve seen any of my Ipsy bag reviews, you already know how excited I get about highlighters! Out of all the highlighters I’ve collected over the years, I don’t own a jelly highlighter so I was proud to say this one is different from the rest. When I swatched it on my hand, I gasped. The texture is SO silky. I barely waited a whole minute before I went to go tap a little bit on my cheekbones and I’m obsessed. I would choose this over any powder highlight I have. It blends in so well and looks stunning. Literally.
The listing price for this item is $26.
Dominique Cosmetics Lemonade Lip Gloss in Peach Tea
My lip gloss is cool, my lip gloss be poppin’! As I mentioned above, I often go for a natural makeup look. This light pink lipgloss is absolutely perfect for a natural look. It’s a lightweight formula that’s not sticky! It smells kind of like chocolate and is very hydrating.
The listing price for this lipstick is $17.
Touch In Sol – No Poreblem Prime Essence
Primers never used to be my thing but I love when I get a good one that really makes a difference. The first thing I noticed was the packaging. I really love the applicator. The product itself is on the watery side and a little bit goes a long way. This claims to tighten pores and create a silky smooth canvas for your makeup. I’ve tried this a couple of times and this definitely makes my makeup look better!
The listing price for this item is $23.
Haruharu Wonder Maqui Berry Anti-oxidant Mask
I’m not usually a fan of sheet masks. The process of pulling them out of the package, them dripping everywhere when you’re trying to unfold it, then the task of correctly placing it on your face just isn’t very relaxing to me. The con of this product was all of that. Once I got it placed on my face, I let it sit for 20 minutes. It had a very light fruity scent. After the 20 minutes, I pulled the mask off and my skin definitely looked more radiant! I would do this mask again so I guess it’s a good thing it came in a pack of three!
The listing price for the three masks is $9
My Final Thoughts
For this being my very first Boxycharm ever, I’m very impressed! For a girl whos been receiving 5 samples every month for the past few years, I’m so excited about having the chance to get 5 full sized products for only $21 a month for a value of over $100! I’m obsessed with makeup and trying new products so I don’t think I could ever get tired of this subscription. Especially because I’m also obsessed with good deals.
So, let’s talk about the value of this box specifically. I added up all the prices of each product and it came out to $111!
Now let’s do some math. 111 – 21 = 90.
I got $90 worth of products for free. I don’t know about you but that just blows my mind!
