I have to say as the months go by I am more and more impressed with BOXYCHARM.  I just feel you get so much bang for your buck and I love that all the products are full-size.  I have been disappointed in my Ipsy bag of late and I have to say BOXYCHARM is making strides to be the front runner as my favorite subscription box.   This months theme is “Sparkle and Shine," and in the box I got five full-size products for a value of $121.  This is a steal since BOXYCHARM is only $21 a month! If you're interested you can click here to subscribe. So now on to the products…


MicaBeauty Eye Primer- This waterproof eye primer is flesh colored and helps even out skin tone while priming eyelids to extend and intensify eyeshadows.  I love this.  Even if not used as a primer it works great to cover up any veins or discoloration on the eyelids, brightening up the face.  I have tried this the past couple days and it does what it says, it does a great job of priming the eyelids.  But this bad boy retails for $44.95/0.3oz….yikes, that’s expensive.

OFRA Cosmetics Pressed Blush in Paradise Pink – This matte blush is very bright and would probably look better on darker skin tones, as it looks pretty intense on my fair skin.  I would recommend using a brush similar to the Real Techniques blush brush to sheer out the color on this.  This would be a good dupe for NAR’s blush in Mata Hari.  Retails for $24.95/0.28oz.

TARINA TARANTINO Eyelicity Glitter Liner- I don’t really know what I’m going to do with this.  It’s a sheer black eyeliner infused with silver micro-glitters and advertised as “long-lasting, smudge resistant, and quick drying.”  I’m not a huge fan.  Don't get me wrong I love some shimmer, but chunky glitter eyeliner comes off as a little juvenile to me.  Maybe this would look nice over an opaque black eyeliner to add some glitter, but I will have to play around with it some more.  Retails for $16.00/0.17oz.

Kevin.Murphy Color.Bug- This is such a cool product!  This is a colour pad for your hair that wipes on colour and washes out instantly, and I got it in this gorgeous purple color.  You slide the colour bug over chunks of hair coloring it temporarily and then it comes out in your next wash.  Retails for $20.00/0.17oz.

Bellápierre Shimmer Powder-This is a mineral based loose pigment and I received this gorgeous olive color.  Green eyeshadow is very complimentary to brown eyes so I was excited to see this in the box.  This pairs great with the MicaBeauty eye primer. Retails for $14.99/2.35g

And that is all the products in this months BOXYCHARM.  Between my glitter eyeliner, bright pink cheeks and purple hair it is gonna be crazy up in da club.  Just kidding...less is more, right ladies?  Have you guys tried any of these products? Check out BOXYCHARM and let me know what you think!
