Boxycharm - December 2017

Boxycharm is a subscription box service, that sends full size and deluxe sample size items to you each month. I've noticed majority of the time, you will get full sized products, and you receive 5 each month. It is $21 USD a month, plus shipping. There are discounts if you sign up for 3 months, 6 months, or 12 months. I originally signed up for 3 months, and it renewed for another 3 months automatically. Everyone generally gets the same box each month, with a few variations such as lipstick colours. Or a lipstick vs lip gloss. That being said, let's take a look at what I received for my December Boxycharm!

The theme of the month is Glitz & Glam. Perfect for this time of year!

Let's open these up to get a better look at everything...

Vintage Cosmetics - Illuminating Face Highlighter in Rose Gold (Retail Price: $32)
Add a beautiful wash of colour and subtle, sexy shimmer with the Illuminating Face Highlighter. Created to be worn alone or as a beautiful highlight over pretty blush - the reflective pearls add radiance on contact, adding a delicate glow and diamond-like finish to the skin.

I haven't swatched this because I'm not sure if I want to keep it for myself or include it in a giveaway. It is pretty though!

Beaute Basics - Bronze Essentials (Retail Price: $39.95)
Use individually or mix together for your ultimate Bronze and Glow.

I don't use bronzer, so this will definitely be added to a giveaway!

Real Her - Blush Kit (Retail Price: $32)
Treat your cheeks to an instant natural glow with 3 shimmery tones.

This is really pretty, and I can see myself using the two more pink shades. Although the more brown shade isn't bad either. The pink on the left has glitter. Look below for swatches.

Tarte - Tarteist Lash Paint Mascara (Retail Price: $23)
A jet-black, vegan mascara that has a molded brush that grabs and coats even the tiniest lashes for 2700% more volume.

I've only tried a sample of this mascara, and I wasn't a huge fan. But I think that was more due to the fact that it was a sample, and the packaging was stupid. I'll definitely give this a shot. A full review will come in the future!

Makeup Geek - Showstopper Creme Stain in Quickstep (Retail Price: $12)
Makeup Geek Showstopper Creme Stain will ensure you're the center of attention! Use the precision applicator for a light feel on the lips throughout the day. 

I was very surprised with this lip creme. I will say it's not really a stain, it's more of a liquid lipstick. I thought it was going to look way too brown on me, but it applies so lightly, so you have better control of how much is going on your lips. I actually like it, which is a surprise for me, cause this really is not a shade I would ever buy, or reach for.

Overall, I liked how this was a good mixture of products. And I can see how it could be glammed up. However, I'm not overly thrilled with my Boxycharm subscription lately. Don't get me wrong, the value is definitely there every month (this month was $138.95) but I'm starting to get so over run with products, and I usually don't love everything inside. Lately I find I'm putting more products aside to give away or gift, and I feel like I could use that money to put towards something I would actually like from elsewhere. My 3 month subscription just renewed recently, so I think I will make a final decision closer to the end of my 3 months. Maybe I will take a break. We'll see!
