Boxycharm April’s Box-Strike a Pose


I was lucky blessed to have the amazing opportunity to review Boxycharm’s monthly subscription boxes and today, I’ll be sharing with you what I got in my April’s Box.

Before I begin though, let me tell you a little about Boxycharm:

– it’s a monthly subscription box which is filled with yummy beauty products

– all products are full sized and high end

– you get a little card with descriptions of the products you get as well as the cost

– sleek packaging in a little black box filled with confetti

– it costs $21 US

The boxes in general are well over what you pay-for instance, my the total cost of my box was $102.85 US . Can you say insane or what?!

Here’s what I got:

When you first open your box here are the yummy goodies you see

The nail polish I got surprised me so much-I still can’t believe I’m in love with this colour. I always gravitate towards pastels and although this is called ‘Lavender’, it’s definitely much darker than the typical pastel shade you expect. It is a rich formula that goes on streak free and two coats will be fine but I love doing 3 for an extra oomph. Best of all, it’s actually good for your nails since it’s toluene, DBP & formaldehyde free. IKR-amazingg.

This Glow Finishing Oil makes your hair look healthy and glossy without the slicked down look [not cool btw].  It smells sooo good and anything that makes my hair look soft and silky, count me in!

$29.95

Okay can we take a moment to recognize the insanely amazing lipstick below. This is from Ofra and it’s a long lasting liquid lipstick. What I love the most about it [besides everything] is:

-the colour. The shade is Hollywood [very suitable I’ll say] and it is a delightful shade of pink-not too bright and not too dark which makes it definitely suitable for all skin tones [I’m wearing it in the video].

– it dries matte. Yes, this is probably my main reason I adore this lipstick. Matte lipsticks are so pretty and looks very prominent on your face-especially when paired with a neutral eyes.

– scent wise, it’s like a candy smell. Yummo!

I would say that dupes for this are of course the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams which was a part of my #BeautyonaBudget series on my channel.

Lipstick

$19.90

This was the only product I was little bleh about. The formula is very creamy and shade is a pretty nude as you can see, but I’m not sure if I personally like it as a lip liner because it’s just a bit too soft for me. Maybe I have to play around with it a little more to be sure? But I’ll let you know if my opinion changes. A pro of it though as that it comes with it’s own sharpener so that’s pretty convenient if you wanna travel with it.

Lip Liner

$20.00

This blush is so pretty and I love the name [Amaretto sounds so rich and delicious right?] but personally, I find it very dark to be used as a blush on me. I definitely rather use it for a slight contour and I think it worked perfectly like that [wearing in the video]. Using it as a bronzer makes it a lot more wearable for me because not only is it highly pigmented, but it really gives me a bronzed look which you know I’m all about.
