February 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 February 2018 Boxycharm theme was Galaxy Glow and I'm a bit disappointed that my box keeps coming extremely late. I've seen so many March boxes already and I'm just now getting to review the February box. So lame right?! I love being a #Boxybabe and I guess it's better to be late then never!

In my box:

Cover FX Shimmer Veil
Crown Brush Pro Brush trio
Ofra Pop-Up Palette and blush godet refill
Vintage by Jessika Liebskind eyeliner pencil
PUR plumping lip exfoliator 

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 February Boxycharm box a 3/5.

More about the products inside:

Cover FX Shimmer Veil- I was very excited to try the shimmer veil because I saw a lot of beautiful makeup looks on Instagram. You can use this product anywhere on the face but I like using it as eyeshadow. It's creamy but blendable... PERFECT :)

Crown Brush Pro Brush trio- I love getting new brushes...especially super soft ones like the Crown Brush trio. The three sizes are perfect for concealing, highlighting, sculpting and setting. It's great to have three brushes that offer everything you need to create the perfect look. These brushes have a little dip in the handle that make it easier to hold. Not like we are out here dropping our brushes that have a straight handle or anything, but it's a nice feature to have nonetheless. 

Ofra Pop-Up Palette and blush godet refill- I must admit, I was really disappointed with this product. I don't have any single eyeshadows in my makeup collection so I have no need for this pop-up palette. I do like the Ofra blush but I won't be filling this with other products any time soon. As much as I see the potential for this palette to be useful since it's magnetic, it just isn't for me. Such a waste...

Vintage by Jessika Liebskind eyeliner pencil- I do love a good eyeliner pencil and I was impressed with how easily a smokey eye can be achieved. This isn't for someone that likes a crisp and clean line because part of its charm is that this pencil smudges easily. As long as you know what you're getting into, this pencil would be a great addition to your makeup collection. 

PUR plumping lip exfoliator- I was impressed with the ingredients and what this product offers...minus the lip plumping. The shape of the "pencil" made it easy to apply and was really convenient to use. I love PUR products and I'm happy to try this product since I probably wouldn't buy this at the store. 

I wasn't happy with the Feb Boxycharm, but I am thrilled that the charm room has finally been updated. I hope Boxycharm can keep up the momentum of other past boxes that were way better than this one. Do you subscribe to any beauty boxes? Which ones are your faves? I'd love to hear from you!
