March 2018 Boxycharm Review

After being a loyal subscriber to Ipsy for over two years, 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 March 2018 Boxycharm theme was Baecation and I'm thrilled that my box came at a decent time this month. For the last few months, my box has been coming extremely late...sometimes a full month late, so this was a welcome change. I've become a bit of a palette collector so it was nice to get a new one to add to my growing collection. I'm also happy to see that the Charm Room is being updated more regularly so I can finally redeem some points for something useful. That was one reason why I preferred Ipsy over Boxycharm so it seems that Boxycharm is stepping their game up for 2018!

In my box:
Pür eyeshadow palette
Butter London mascara
South Mane eye gels
Vintage Cosmetic Co brush set
Pretty Vulgar blush  

I like that this month has a skin care item and an impressive variety of products. I rate the March Boxycharm box a 5/5.

More about the products inside:

Pür eyeshadow palette- This palette is perfect for spring! I love that you can create a variety of looks with one palette like this. These pigments are silky smooth and blendable so you're able to layer shades with ease. I can see the potential for every day use as well as full glam looks. 

Butter London mascara- This mascara is massive! I know the picture might not do it justice but truthfully I think this is the largest mascara I've ever owned. I like that there's a ton of product in the tube but still coats my lashes nicely. This is a great daily mascara and as my first intro to Butter London, I was impressed. 

South Mane eye gels- I was happy to discover South Mane in my box this month because I was unfamiliar with this brand. I love using under eye gels, so this was a nice treat. South Mane offers these gels individually or in a pack of 3. I used these gels before bed and I liked that it was cool to the touch. My skin felt a slight tingle, but it wasn't anything unbearable. I only used this once so I didn't see any outstanding results that were promised like reduction in dark circles, fine lines and puffiness. It was a nice way to soothe my skin but one use wasn't enough to sing all its praises. 

Vintage Cosmetic Co brush set- I love doing a smokey eye look so I was very happy to get some new brushes just for that! This brush set had three  brushes- a shadow brush,  angles shadow brush, and a smudger brush. The set is even labelled with numbers so you know which one to use. FANTASTIC! 

Pretty Vulgar blush- This colour wasn't for me but I do like the formula and packaging of Pretty Vulgar products. I found this blush didn't blend as well as I'd like and I probably won't be using this too often. Such a shame since it's so pretty :( 

Do you subscribe to any beauty boxes? Which ones are your faves? I'd love to hear from you!


  1. I have never gotten BoxyCharm but it looks so worth it! I think that palette is so gorgeous! The colors are so perfect for Spring! :)

My First Time using Melixir face oil

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...
