After much curiosity (again), I’ve decided to try Boxycharm. Previously, I was only subscribed to Birchbox. I tried Choix and decided to unsubscribe (nothing against the box–I would rather just get the samples whenever I feel like it rather than monthly, which you can do). I still have Birchbox, and now Boxycharm.
My friend (the same one I did the eyeshadow ban with) subscribed first, and I did after with her referral link. I had no idea what was in the box at the time, so when she told me, I was pretty excited!
First up is the Coastal Scents Smoky palette, a clear imitation of the Urban Decay Smoky palette. This retails for $20 (though the box says $40), so it’s a pretty good deal. I haven’t tried this yet, but I have to admit, I was excited about getting some eyeshadow since I have been VERY good on our ban, and subscription boxes are allowed.
Also in the box is a full-sized Blinc mascara, which is a tubing mascara. I’m going to be giving this away to a friend since I wasn’t a fan of it when I tried a sample in the past.
The last item in the box is a Starlooks liquid liner. Liquid liner and I don’t typically mix, so I’m thinking of saving this for my sister’s birthday. She LOVES black eyeliner of all kinds. 🙂 I should note that my friend who also subscribed to Boxycharm is a huge fan of black liquid liner, and she LOVES this one.
Overall, I’m happy with the box even though there are a couple of items I know I won’t get use out of. I don’t mind gifting if need be. I’m already looking forward to February!
