November 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 November 2017 Boxycharm theme was Sweater Weather and featured everything you need to keep your fall makeup game on point! While I'm still head over heels with the October Boxycharm (seriously...a full size Becca highlighter!?) I am so stoked to play with all the products in the November box. 

In my box:
Luxie Quad travel brushes
Cover FX setting spray 
Winky Lux Kitten palette
KNC Beauty lip mask
Laqa and Co lipstick

I was very happy to try the Cover FX setting spray because I've heard so many good things about it. There were many standout items and I'm still in shock that this box cost just under $35! I was 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:

Luxie Quad travel brushes- I've always wanted a travel size set of brushes and now I have them, just in time for the holidays! Luxie is a brand I discovered last year from Ipsy and I'm happy to report that the brushes are still high quality yet stylish :) YAY! This quad travel set is a Boxycharm exclusive and I feel so lucky to snag these brushes in the November box!

Cover FX setting spray- This year I've seen many makeup gurus use setting spray in their makeup tutorials, and like many products I didn't think I needed, I'm thrilled I got to try this spray. The idea is that this mist will set your makeup for a full day, while offering an all over highlight to your face and body. I was happy to find that the mist was more pleasant than I thought it would be. I was afraid to end up looking like a soaking wet mess, but I was left with a natural glow. While my makeup didn't feel "set" after using this spray, I did notice that my concealer didn't crease as much so that's a win in my books!

Winky Lux Kitten palette- When I saw the spoiler for this item I couldn't believe it. This palette looked perfect for everyday use, and when I finally got it, I was over the moon! The Winky Lux Kitten palette is super pigmented and blends well. I loved the colour combinations and I'm definitely a fan of Winky Lux after learning that this palette is cruelty and paraben free. 

KNC Beauty lip mask- As much as I love the idea of this lip mask, I would not purchase this product or recommend to anyone if you have less than perfectly shaped lips. In theory, this mask would moisturize, hydrate, and plump lips offering the perfect solution for dry chapped lips- but only if it stays on! This is by far the worst fitting lip mask that I've tried :( but it wasn't entirely horrible since I did feel a slight tingle on the areas that did keep contact with the mask. If the mask didn't keep slipping off I'm sure my lips would feel nourished (side eye emoji)

Laqa & Co lipstick- I prefer lip gloss over lipstick, but I'm thrilled with how soft the Laqa & Co lipstick is. It went on smooth and lasted almost all day- even while eating and drinking :) If you're looking for a highly pigmented lip colour this holiday season, then Laqa & Co is right up your alley! There aren't many colours currently available from this brand but I'm patiently waiting to see what's next!

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!
