Boxycharm Unboxing & Review - May

Hi Beauties!

It's time to take a look at this month's Boxycharm box and it was a good one!  Boxycharm is a monthly beauty subscription service that features makeup, skincare, hair and nail products.  Each box typically contains 5 full size beauty items.


The theme for this month's box is Spring Vibes and it contains 6 items!


The Brow Gal Clear Brow Gel - $20
This is a clear brow gel that will hold your brow hairs in place.  I can always use a tube of clear brow gel so I was glad to see this in my box this month.

Catherine Melandrino Romance de Provence Mini Sprayer - $20
Perfumes in beauty subscription boxes don't really excite me but I love the scent of this because it's super similar to my favorite perfume of all time, Flowerbomb!  

ella + mila Nail Polish in Pistache - $10.50
This 5-Free nail polish is vegan, quick drying, and chip resistant.  I absolutely love the shade of this polish and I can't wait to use it.  I'll update you on my Instagram account with photos and the quality of this polish.  


pur Double Ego Dual Ended Eyeliner in Bora Bora- $21
This is a 2 in 1 dual-ended eyeliner with one side being a liquid liner and the other a twist up pencil.  The color is a really gorgeous blue.  The pencil glides on nicely in my waterline.  I wish the liquid liner was more pigmented.  It doesn't apply very dark and I had to go over it a few times so that it didn't look like a watered down shade of blue.

Starlooks Luxe Lip Liner in Charmed - $19.50
This is a pretty dry lip liner and a bit hard to apply.  On me, the shade is a very unflattering light peachy/pink.

Makeup Geek Blush in Soulmate - $15
And now the star of the show!  This is Makeup Geek's new blush formula and packaging which is gorgeous! The shade is a mauvey pink and I love it.  

Swatches

L-R: Starlooks lip liner, pur pencil liner, pur liquid liner, MUG Blush


Overall, I thought the May Boxycharm box was pretty great!  I'm really excited about the Makeup Geek blush, the nail polish, the perfume, and it's always nice to have a backup grow gel around.  Also, the pencil side of the blue eyeliner is nice.

Each Boxycharm Box costs $21, shipping is free, and you can cancel your subscription at any time.   As you can see, I received 5 full size items and a sample in this month's box.  The retail value of this box is about $106, that's 5 times the cost of the box!
