September 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 September 2017 Boxycharm theme was Boxy Baddie and after seeing the August Boxycharm box all over social media I just had to see what all the fuss was about. I was on the waitlist for about two weeks before I got that much anticipated welcome email. I don't think I've ever gotten that excited to sign up for a subscription box!

In my box:
Pür Cosmetics Soiree Diaries Eyeshadow Palette
MAC eyebrow pencil
Colourpop ultra satin lip colour 
Studio Makeup blush
bareMinerals brush
Briogeo hair mask

I was very impressed with this haul! There were many standout items and I'm still in shock that this box cost just under $35! I was happy to see many high end brands and full size items. I rate the September Boxycharm box a 5/5.

More about the products inside:

Pür Cosmetics Soiree Diaries Eyeshadow Palette- This palette is perfect for fall. I love how these warm colours look natural but still glam. This is my first Pür Cosmetics palette and I'm impressed with how blendable the shadows are. I'm thrilled to add this gorgeous palette to my makeup collection. 

MAC eyebrow pencil- I've been a Benefit KaBrow junkie for a long time now and I think I found a new love. This pencil was easy to use and super pigmented, so tiny hair-like strokes really did get the job done. It wasn't as long lasting as KaBrow because this isn't a pomade so I still needed to set my brows with a gel or Benefit's Gimme Broww. 

Colourpop ultra satin lip colour- I don't know what it is about Colourpop lip colours, but I just can't get on the bandwagon. As much as I love the formula, the colour doesn't work for me. This lippie went on smooth and dried matte. I loved the pigmentation, just not the colour. 

Studio Makeup blush- I have never heard of the brand Studio Makeup before so I was happy to discover something new. I liked how lightweight this blush is and how well it blends on my cheeks. I got a nice natural flush with just a tiny bit of product. 

bareMinerals brush- This brush has a little reservoir that you can use to put your foundation. It's super soft and easy to use. I actually like brushes with shorter handles and my first impressions of this brush are good!!

Briogeo hair mask- I just discovered Briogeo from another beauty box and I'm happy to try another product from the brand. My hair craves moisture all year round- and even more when the weather gets cooler so I was thrilled to get a hair mask when I need it most! My hair felt soft and moisturized after using this mask and since I have chemically treated hair, this means the world. I'm in love!!

I was very happy to get such an amazing first box from Boxycharm so I think I'll keep the subscription for a bit longer to see how it stacks up to Ipsy.  Do you subscribe to any beauty boxes? Which ones are your faves? I'd love to hear from you!
