Wednesday Reveal – May Boxycharm

My desire to decorate my home comes and goes in spurts, sometimes I am all minimalist and think I have too much stuff and then other days I am picking up knick-knacks and throw pillows like I don’t already own dozens of each. I am in French Country mode, it all started with this vase that I found a few weeks ago and suddenly I am planning the entire living room around it. It really is lovely but I have a feeling that this is just a phase, per usual – best pump the brakes.

Sadly, I feel that Boxycharm is soon becoming one that started out amazing but has become a little lack luster 😦 I think it is still a good value for what you get but that also depends on if I actually use the products. This month’s theme is Makeup Is Art, here is what came in this month’s box:

Highlight & Contour Palette by IBY Beauty – This is a 6 pan highlight and contour palette, I am not opening but reading the reviews it sounds like these aren’t quite powders but not quite cremes. It looks nice and the shades could work for a variety of skin tones, I am not opening this as I know I wouldn’t use it and plan to gift away. I am a little bummed that we just received a palette of concealers last month, apparently they just got the memo about contour…

Liquid Glow by Temptu – I think this is that brand who released that pod/airbrushing product? This cannot be used with that device but it does work either on bare skin or mixed in with foundation. I thought that it was going to be too bronze for me but it fairly sheer. This reminds me a lot of MAC Lustre Drops with a touch less pigment, very wearable.

Round Contour Brush by Crown Pro – This is very soft and dense, I think I would like to try it with foundation than contour.

Convertible Brow by The Brow Gal –  This is a powder/pomade duo which sounds interesting. The shades will work for me, pleased that I got this one! That being said, why are there 3 shades? I feel like I would end up with some really bizarre ombre brows 😛  think it includes 3 so that you can blend them for a good match. It also comes in a handy, portable case.

Brow Brush by The Brow Gal – I am actually more excited about the brush! It has a spoolie end and an angled end, I will get a lot of use from this.

Overall, this box was OK – the dollar value is well over the 21 bucks for the monthly fee (158.49) but the actual value to me is dependent on whether or not I used the products. I can give some items away but I hope I don’t receive any contour/concealer products for a while!

Thanks for stopping by ❤

    I wish boxes like these would be way more personalized so that we could receive things we actually would use! I end up giving a lot of items away from my boxes too.

      I agree, especially with these full-size products. Not using a sample is one thing but not being able to use an entire palette makes me feel wasteful. I can find others to give them to but would love more customization too!!
