Boxycharm October Unboxing

Month #2 of Boxycharm in Canada for this beauty. It continues to impress, even for the higher price due to the US/CAD conversion. It is $21 USD + $5 shipping to Canada. So far, worth it!!! See for yourself below. If you are interested in checking it out, click here.

Starlooks Ultra Matte Lip Paint in Piquant – $19

An incredibly smooth, long-wear, velvety ultra matte formula that provides full velvet lip coverage! Feels like your;re not wearing anything on the lips, and odes not transfer onto your drinking glass, or the lips of your significant other! 12h wear with minimal touch-ups.

This is a beautiful dark berry shade that does feel very velvety. I haven’t tested the 12h wear claim yet. It has a fruity smell and applies nicely (although the applicator tickled my lips.. am I just weird?) I let it dry and it does feel very light on my lips and did not transfer when I did the kiss test.

 

IBY Beauty Three’s Company Trio Eye Shadow – $19 USD

These three “must have shades” are perfect for fast and easy eye shadow contouring. Use the trio to brighten and define your eyes and make them appear dramatically bigger.

This is a beautiful trio. You have a matte brown, a gold and a shimmer white/cream. I have used it and I found that it it created a pretty look. The brown blended very very nicely and I found that the gold looked a lot more orangy on the eye. These are extremely powdery, you dip your brush in once and poof! powder! I did add a matte cream brow highlight and to blend out the crease colour. Over all, these are nice but I am not sure how much I will reach for it. It is similar tones to the palette we got last month and I prefer that one.

Briogio Blow Dry Perfection Heat Protectant – $24 USD

A weightless blow-dry finishing and heat protectant cream formulated without parabens, sulfates and phthalates. Naturally fortified with rosehip, argan, and coconut oils, it protects against heat damage up to 425F, smooths hair and tames frizz, and enhances shine and softness.

This is not an item that I will be using but it sounds like it has good reviews and I like that there is a variety of items in the box. If you like these types of creams, you will love this. Plus, it is full-size.

Luxie Beauty Eye Blender Brush Pack – $36 USD

We (Boxycharm) collaborated with Luxie to bring you this fabulous Eye Blender 3-piece set! These cruelty free brushes are extremely soft and gentle enough for all skin types. An antibacterial coating helps keep the brushes clean and fresh. Blending your favourites shadows will be a breeze. 

THIS OMG. This makes the whole box worth it. I got a couple Luxie brushes in another subscription service a long time ago and since then I have wanted more of these, but they aren’t cheap. They are beautiful. You get 2 #229 Tapered Blending brush and 1 #237 Blending brush. These are soft, they work like a charm and are beautiful too!

Temptu Shimmer Bronzer – $29.50 USD

S/B Bronzers have a silicone-based formula and are Oil free, non-comedogenic, and hypoallergenic. Bronze and contour the complexion with this beautiful finish. 

Temptu is the company that does the air brush makeup and it looks like this could be used without the machine. I wasn’t sure about this item at first but I did try it and was surprised! It looked too dark at first but it blends really nicely and didn’t look that bad for my first try at this type of item! I will keep using it.

(sorry about the bad pic)

 

Overall, another amazing box with all full-sized items. And did I mention, 3 brushes?! 3!!! The total value is 127.50 USD. Again, if you are interested in getting the box, you can get it here.
