December 2017 Boxycharm Review

After being a loyal subscriber to Ipsy for over a year, I decided it was time to give another makeup subscription box a chance. Boxycharm is similar to Ipsy. Each month you get full size or deluxe-sized products delivered right to your door, and I was sold after checking out their previous boxes. If you're not very adventurous with makeup like me, it's a great way to build your makeup collection on the cheap and expand your makeup expertise!


The December 2017 Boxycharm theme was Glitz & Glam and I'm thrilled that Boxycharm ended the year with another fantastic box. I've seen many spoilers on Instagram and I hoped that I would get the Bella Pierre palette and blush kit. How lucky am I?!?

In my box:
Real Her blush kit
Bella Pierre pro concealer palette
Pretty Vulgar liquid lipstick
Tarte Tarteist lash paint mascara
Crown Brush deluxe blush brush

There were many standout items this month and I'm really happy to see many high end brands and full size items. I rate the November Boxycharm box a 5/5.

More about the products inside:

Real Her blush kit- I've really come out of my shell with makeup this year and I've learned a lot about how to apply blush properly to avoid looking like a clown. One of my biggest fears in life is looking like a hot mess so I'd rather stay conservative and not wear too much makeup. The problem was that I didn't know how to apply makeup properly, but thanks to Boxycharm I was able to score awesome makeup on the cheap so I could refine my makeup skills without breaking the bank. Forever grateful! The Real Her blush kit is perfect for makeup newbies and gurus since there are three colours to play with. I'm loving this!

Bella Pierre pro concealer palette- I'm thrilled to add these colours to my makeup collection :) I've been a fan of Bella Pierre since discovering the brand form Ipsy last year. These concealers are creamy and blendable- perfect for creating a flawless canvas for makeup! I can't wait to take before and after pics to see if there really is a difference with using colour correctors. 

Pretty Vulgar liquid lipstick- If metallic liquid lipsticks are your thing, then you would love the Pretty Vulgar "My Lips Are Sealed" lipsticks. It's a very pretty colour and the formula is so smooth and nourishing but liquid lipsticks aren't really my jam. I'll save this for a holiday party or something...

Tarte Tarteist lash paint mascara- I'm always in need of mascara since it's the one thing I can put on when I don't feel like wearing makeup and still feel glam :) I love Tarte so much and the lash paint mascara is a staple in my makeup bag (and for good reason!) The formula is fantastic and offers so much coverage without making your lashes feel stiff. It's buildable so you can go with one, or two, or three coats without looking too harsh. The brush is the perfect size and does a wonderful job of separating your lashes. My lashes look really long when I wore this mascara and would be great if you're looking for an everyday mascara. 

Crown Brush deluxe blush brush- This brush is so soft I couldn't stop touching it! The synthetic bristles are perfect for both cream and powder blushes so you don't need to take up space with too any brushes. I liked the handle design the most since there's a little dip for your thumb which allows you to have a bit more control. Great idea!!

I was very happy to get such an amazing box from Boxycharm.  Do you subscribe to any beauty boxes? Which ones are your faves? I'd love to hear from you!

This year, my skin has been on its best behaviour. I'm not entirely sure if it's because I've been paying more attention to wha...
