Boxycharm - January 2018

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 January Boxycharm!

The theme of the month of January is Rock 2018.

 Another month, another 5 full sized products!

Pur - The Complexion Authority - Bronze and Brighten Cheek Palette ($34)
An on-the-go highlight, bronzer, and blush palette with three skin perfecting powders to create an effortless and sun-kissed glow on every skin tone. Featuring PUR's fan favourites, "Afterglow" and "Mineral glow" along with a new blush shade, "Blushing glow" throw this in your bag and you're ready to go!

I really feel like none of these shades would work for me, so I will be passing it along.

Crown Pro - Glam Metals Palette ($25)
Rock your look with the Crown Pro Glam Metals eyeshadow palette! These highly pigmented, ultra blendable shadows make smokey eyes look like a breeze!

I was so tempted to swatch this, but I think I will also be passing it along.

Girlactik - Matte Lip Paint ($23)
One of the original liquid lipstick formulas that is still true to it's words - it's lightweight, long wearing, non-cracking and won't settle. For better application, do not apply a lip balm or lip primer before application.

I feel like this shade is a lot darker when it's out of the tube. The swatch below is what it looks like immediately applied, so I can only imagine how dark it will look once it dries down on the lips.

Dr. Brandt - Pores No More Luminizier Primer ($38)
Luminizer Primer delivers a natural radiant glow while blurring pores and imperfections for a beautifully illuminated flawless complexion.

The swatch above makes it look very luminizing, but I'm sure it won't be too bad under a foundation.

It Cosmetics - Brow Power Universal Eyebrow Pencil ($24)
Developed with plastic surgeons, IT Cosmetics' #1 best-selling, award-winning eyebrow pencil is infused with brown-enhancing biotin, lecithin, saw palmetto, nettle, green tea, antioxidants, grape seed, and vitamins A, B5, C, and E, plus proprietary Brow Power Technology to give you your most beautiful, natural-looking brows-even if you have none at all. Plus it's universal transforming shade adjusts to all your hair colours based on pressure, it's exclusive oval tip mimics the look of real hair and it includes a built in grooming spooley brush for polished perfection!

The swatch above makes the colour look a little too warm for me, I feel like brows are a cooler shade of brown. I'll give this a go once I'm out of my kabrow. I'm not sure how universal this actually will be.

I have mixed feelings on this box. I don't feel like the brow product is really universal, as with the highlight and bronze palette. The box has a good value like always ($144) but I feel like I'm not really getting my own personal value from these boxes anymore. I will be passing on the eyeshadow palette and the cheek palette.
