BoxyCharm May 2015 Unboxing
BoxyCharm is $21 a month. It is a beauty subscription box that typically comes with mostly full-sized products and it is (probably) my favorite subscription box. Every month it comes in a cute little white box with a pink logo and there’s always an information card inside detailing the products they’re featuring for the month. This is the May Boxycharm box…so, here we go.
First up is ModelCo Bronze Shimmer. This product is gorgeous, but mine came broken…which made me very sad. To be honest, I don’t know if I’ll even get the chance to get a replacement as I’m in the middle of moving, I just don’t have the time. Anyway this is a full sized product and it’s said to be perfect for creating a warm looking “tan” for the summer. The value is $22.
Next is the Lip Bar lipstick, another full size. Mine is in the color of Kiss Me. It’s a bright, kind of fluorescent looking pink color. Not in love with it, but it’s OK. What makes this product so special, is it’s packaging. It comes in a nice cloth case and the tube is designed very “retro”. I like the packaging a lot. The value is $20.
This is my favorite in the box and one of my favorite subscription box items of all times. It’s Bodyography Essential Brow Trio in full size and the Brow Brush in full size. The trio is gorgeous with three different shades. I’ve used brow pencils and gels before, but powder always seems to work the best and that’s what this is. I can’t wait…can’t wait…can’t wait to get my hands on this product. And, it comes with a brush set. Hello! BoxyCharm you really know how to make a girl happy! One end of the brush helps you separate clumpy lashes and the other end is an angled brow brush. The trio is valued at $19 and the brush is valued at $19 too. That my dears is pure joy!
The final thing in the box, and probably the item I’m the least excited about, is more nail polish. However, I do like this brand. It’s Lauren B polish and it’s a full sized product. I got the color 33 Carats and it is very shimmery. I have so many polishes and I know I already have some similar colors, so I may give this away in one of the boxes I plan to curate. It’s valued at $18 and it is vegan friendly. So, yay for nature and yay for our furry friends.
I am going to give this box a 4.5 STARS OUT OF FIVE. The only reason it doesn’t get the full five is due to the broken bronzer and this is the second or third time I have received a broken product in my BoxyCharm box. I am the most excited about the brow trio and brush. I’m also happy with the bronzer, I just hope I have the time to request a replacement…I guess I’ll have to make time right? I paid $21 for this box and it’s valued at $98, if I’m doing my math right. Which…by the way…is an awesome value!
