Boxycharm December 2017

Even though I get several subscription boxes I always am most excited about getting my Boxycharm. It is the most expensive subscription I get at $21 a month but it is almost always well worth it. You can see what I have received in past boxes here, here,  here,  here, here and here.

I had high hopes for the December box since it is the holidays. Boxycharm almost always delivers month after month. Read on to see if December was a good month.

Pretty Vulgar – My Lips Are Sealed Lightweight Liquid Lipstick – A highly pigmented liquid lipstick that provides a radiant metallic finish, nice comfortable creamy texture, and a citrus cordial flavor. This is a beautiful rose gold shade that I love. I did not expect to like it but I really do. The metallic sheen looks really nice for the holiday and it is so creamy and comfortable. The price for this is $24.

Crown Brush – Deluxe Blush Brush – With super soft, dense synthetic bristles, this brush can be used with both powder and cream blushes and provides medium to full coverage for a more dramatic finish. This is a soft, densely packed brush. I don’t think it is the right shape for a blush brush. At least not for me. I prefer a bigger, fluffier brush.  This brush has a retail price of $12.

Beaute Basics – Bronze Essentials – Use individually or mix together for your ultimate Bronze and Glow. I am not overly thrilled with this. I prefer matte bronzer and this has some glittery shades. It says it sells for $39 which I think is crazy for what it is.

RealHer – Be Fearless, Be Limitless- Blush Kit – Treat your cheeks to an instant natural glow with 3 shimmery tones. I need to use this to see if I like it. On first look, the colors seem too glittery for me. They aren’t really shades that I would have picked for myself either.I will try them out though just to see what they look like on but I’m not excited by this. Boxycharm has this listed at $32 which I think is a little much.

I am using the blush, bronzer and liquid lip here.

 

tarte – tarteist Lash Paint Mascara – A jet-black, vegan mascara that has a molded brush that grabs & coats even the tiniest lashes for 2700% more volume. I am excited to get to try a full size of this mascara. I have a mini size but I have a terrible time using those small mascaras because the wands are so small. This is $23 so I wouldn’t buy a full size even if I love it. There are just too many great drugstore mascaras under $10.

This month’s box does not thrill me. I do really like the liquid lip and am happy to get the tarte mascara. The bronzer is not my favorite and I am making up my mind on the blush. The brush is nice but I am not sure what to use it for. I give this box a 3/5.
