Boxycharm Unboxings October + November 2015

by Molly Gardner

Holy moley.  I have been so busy, I have all the gorgeous Boxycharm boxes stacked up, ready to be unboxed!

There is nothing like surprise makeup mail.  Nothing.  I flat out love it.

Quick refresher: Boxycharm is a monthly makeup subscription box.  It’s $21 a month, including shipping and has 4-5 full size products.  The box’s values always top a $100 and you have no idea what’s in them – so fun!  They do have sneak peeks on Instagram (@boxycharm.)

October’s theme was “Faces of the Moon.”

It included:

  1.  Palmetto Antioxidant Mask, $64 normal retail.  This was the boxes highest value item.  I have only used it once, but I liked it that time.  Need to “mask” soon!! a.k.a. relax with a mask on…
  2. Doucce Punk Volumizer Mascara, $24 retail.  I love this mascara!  The wand is really plush and the mascara formula is dark and volumizing.  It hasn’t flaked on me either.  Great find!
  3. Bellapierre Cheek and Lip Stain, $19.99.  I also love this cream blush!  Great universally flattering shade.  The peachy tint blends out nicely.
  4. Lord & Berry Line/Shade Eyeliner, $18.  A nice smooth, black eyeliner.  Waterproof!  Heck yes!!  I haven’t tried the waterproof part yet, but I like the eyeliners from this brand.
  5. Cult Cosmetics Nail Polish in Grey, $12.  The only dud for me was this polish.  I have a red polish from this line that also had this weird formula.  Super streaky, sad.  But 4 out of 5 winning products is still a win.


November’s theme was “Beauty Par-Tea.”

It included the following:

  1.  Luxie Rose Gold Concealer Eye Brush, $12.  I actually prefer this as a concealer brush to clean up the outside of the lips after applying lipstick.  It’s just the right size and amount of stiffness to apply and blend concealer in a sharp line around the mouth, without bending at all.  So you get a really nice, sharp line.  This is helpful if you are wearing red or dark lipstick, you can draw a thin thin of concealer around the mouth to make it pop.
  2.  Pur Lisse Eye Serum, $65.  This was this month’s highest value item.  I’ve been using it for about a week now and like it so far!
  3. Manna Kadar Liplocked Priming Gloss Stain, $24.  This is another great item from this month’s box!  I love the shade, it’s exactly the color of my lips, so it makes them look really plump and healthy.  It wears for hours and has a cream texture.  I pull the applicator out, wipe all the product off the wand, then apply.  There is actually still enough product on the foamy applicator tip for a perfect application.  Make sure you line your lips too, as it is a cream product and will travel without a liner.  It’s such a pretty shade!
  4. Coolway Leave-In Treatment, $19.95.  I haven’t had a chance to use this one yet, sadly!  (Have to wash my hair sometime this week, haha)
  5. Studio Makeup Soft Blend Blush, in Sahara SBB-02, $17.  This shade is gorgeous and goes PERFECTLY with the lip stain!  This is one of the things I love about Boxycharm, I feel like they really take time to plan their boxes.  It never feels random.


I love this Manna Kadar lip color! It's the perfect natural lip shade.

Overall, two great boxes in a row!  Do you get Boxycharm or any other subscription boxes?  I’m putting together a “Best Of Boxycharm” post on all my favorite products from past boxes.  What is your all-time favorite product from a subscription box?
