Welcome back! And can you believe it is time for another post about Boxycharm already? Personally, I am surprised. I received the shipping email a couple of weeks ago and have been eagerly checking my mailbox every day since. It seems to have taken a bit longer then usual for this box to arrive. For anyone unfamiliar, Boxycharm is $21USD a month. With the exchange rate, it cost me $34.32CAD this month.
From the spoilers I’ve seen for this month I am less excited about this box heading into the unboxing than I am most months, but that is only because I usually avoid applying eyeliner where possible and the Pretty Vulgar eyeliner pot looks beautiful, but like it might be best for people with an artistic streak. I do love the look of the packaging and would love to have it on display. I’ll definitely give it a fair shot (stay tuned below).
This is a gel eyeliner in beautiful unique packaging. I believe if I can master application through practice using it will be quite the treat. This eyeliner is vegan and cruelty-free and claims to be waterproof and long-wearing. The Sephora Canada site sells 3 different shades, though one of them is currently sold out. All three say they are available on the Pretty Vulgar site at the time of this writing.
I think for fair complexions a light hand is key to applying the products in this palette. The powders are soft and blendable. I love the highlight, but it is glittery so if you prefer not to have glitter in your highlight this palette might not be for you. I believe that even if I don’t use the contour colours as a contour they will make for great eyeshadows. The image below features the lighter shade of contour and highlight.
This brush set retails for $45USD ($57.53 CAD with the current exchange rate). It comes with two synthetic eyeliner brushes and an eyebrow Spoolie. The bigger eyeliner brush is great for making a wing. The more precise one is awesome for the waterline, tight line or lash line. They are also vegan and cruelty-free.
This is a synthetic brush that is good for powder. It is cruelty-free, very soft and great for applying blush or bronzer, but requires a bit more work when trying to blend a product out. I always enjoy receiving brushes because there is no need to try and purchase some on my own.
This brush retails for $27USD ($34.67CAD) and I will definitely continue using it, though I don’t often purchase brushes on their own.
What exactly is Matte Lip Gloss? I may never know. It claims to be long-wearing and high coverage. It is cruelty-free and retails for $10USD ($12.84CAD) and the colour
I received is called Sweet Heart. This one is a beautiful (and affordable) pink-nude.
