Boxycharm - September 2018 Review | Frankly Kiersten Reviews

This post includes referral links to Boxycharm. If you use my link to sign up, I will get charms in my Boxycharm account. Find out more information here.

What is Boxycharm?: Boxycharm is a monthly subscription box that sends 4-5 full-size beauty products with boxes being valued at $100+. Each month has a theme but it's not followed exactly as much as the spirit of the theme. Shipping has gotten a lot better since my last Boxycharm post, I get my box almost always in the first half of the month (there is a distribution center less than an hour from my house).

How Much is Boxycharm?: Boxycharm is $21/month shipped. Currently, Boxycharm is offered to the US, its territories, and Canada.

If you sign up for Boxycharm Luxe, four times a year you will get a different box that costs an additional $28.99 on top of the $21. You will not get a 'regular' Boxycharm that month and there's currently no way to get both the regular and the Luxe during the Luxe months without having two subscriptions at once. Until you can get both without dealing with two subscriptions, I will stay with the 'regular' one.

Brushes and a palette, sounds like a pretty good box (in theory).

Info card.

Pretty Vulgar Nightingale Smokey Eyeshadow Palette ($35.00) - I so badly wanted this to work but I was instantly disappointed. The pans aren't in the palette correctly so it doesn't look nice visually, and the pigmentation was all over the place. Some were good, some were total busts. I tried using it on my eye but everything blended away.

Alamar Cosmetics Ojitos Brush Set ($18.00) - These are such good brushes! I would love a full eye collection of these because they apply pigment nicely and the blending brush is so good.

Laura Geller Baked Blush-n-Brighten (Tropic Hues) ($28.00) - While this is a stunning shade, I come back to shimmery blushes not working on my cheeks. I did keep this for my eyes, however, because it's a super pretty pink.

Butter London Stroke of Wow Roll-On Liner ($19.00) - Instant pass. It doesn't work like it should and it's just a mess.

Lorac Pro Matte Lip Color (Dusty Plum) ($19.00) - NO.

Swatches L-R: Pretty Vulgar, Laura Geller, Lorac.

This box was valued at $119.00, right at the guaranteed value. Overall, I wasn't excited with this box and could have done without everything (I already have eye brushes).

As always, let me know what you thought of this box in the comments!
