Boxycharm - November 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.

Yep, a palette and brushes!

Info card.

Ace Beaute Cosmetics Grandiose Palette ($24.99) - This might have been my favorite palette of 2018, so much so that I still wear it. It might end up being my first palette I hit pan on. The shadows are creamy, buildable, pigmented, blendable, all of the things you want in a good palette.

Luxie Brushes Luminous Eye Set ($21.00) - This is such a good set of eye brushes that I considered buying a second set (if I didn't have so many brushes already, I probably would have). They're smaller than average brushes so they do such a good job at placing tiny amounts of product in very specific places, perfect for someone that's not that great at eye looks and needs to work small before spreading it out.

Cover FX Glitter Drops (Nova) ($44.00) - I was disappointed to see that I received this shade. I feel like Boxy should do a better job of sending products that are best suited for certain skintones. It's possible I wouldn't have used it even with the right shade, but I didn't even crack this open because I knew it wouldn't work for me.

Lashaholics Lashes Instaglam False Eyelashes ($14.99) - I have started keeping lashes, but only those that are short enough to wear with my glasses (I still don't do contacts).

Jonteblu Glittering Star Eyeliner ($5.00) - 14-year-old me loved glitter liner, 27-year-old me doesn't. At no time, unless I'm recreating what makeup I did in high school, will I wear glitter liner (it ends up everywhere but on your lash line).

Swatch of the Ace Beaute Palette. 

Overall, I liked the theme and some of the items in the box. I really wish they curated more to what different skintones preferred and hope to see that in future boxes.

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