January 2018 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 January 2018 Boxycharm theme was Rock 2018 and let's just say that after seeing all the horror stories on Instagram about broken products from Boxycharm, I'm happy to report that my Crown Pro Glam Metals palette arrived safely LOL. I was really disappointed with the shipping issues that Boxycharm was dealing with, and I hope the Boxycharm team can get a bit more organized with the way they handle complaints. 

In my box:
Dr. Brandt pores no more primer
It Cosmetics eyebrow pencil
Crown Pro Glam Metals palette
Pür Cosmetics cheek palette
Girlactik lip paint

I'm a bit underwhelmed with the selection this month, but I'm really happy to see many high end brands and full size items. I rate the January Boxycharm box a 5/5.

More about the products inside:

Dr. Brandt pores no more primer- I love a good snapchat filter and I find myself envious with the way my skin looks so darn flawless! I've been on a mission to get the best skin possible so I can achieve that flawless Snapchat filter look, and have really paid attention to the products I use. That's why I was so happy to try the Dr.Brandt pores no more luminizer primer. This product absorbed well and really seemed to  promote that illuminated from within look. I've heard so many great things about this brand and I'm happy I can try it without breaking the bank. Thanks Boxycharm!

It Cosmetics eyebrow pencil- I love using an eyebrow pencil when I need a quick fix and It Cosmetics really hit it out of the park with this one. This is not your ordinary brow pencil. It's infused with biotin, nettle, green tea, lecithin, antioxidants, grape seed, and vitamins A, B5, C and E! WOWZA! This really is a magical product because the shade adjusts based on pressure so it works for everyone. How amazing is that??

Crown Pro Glam Metals palette- I've just started my palette collection and I was happy to see the spoiler for this product on Instagram because I didn't have this colour combo. I like that these colours can be used for everyday looks as well as full glam. These shades are buttery and blendable- perfect for beginners as well as makeup gurus. 

Pür Cosmetics cheek palette- I looooove products that don't take up too much space in my makeup bag. The Pür Cosmetics bronze and brighten cheek palette features the shades Afterglow, Mineral Glow, and Blushing Glow. This highlight, bronzer, and blush palette offers everything you need to get that perfect sun-kissed glow. 

Girlactik lip paint- Liquid lipsticks are my jam so I was thrilled to get this product in my January box. I wasn't familiar with the brand, but I quickly understood why Girlactik is a cult fave. It's super lightweight, non-cracking, long lasting and doesn't settle like most matte liquid lipsticks tend to do. 

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!
