December Boxycharm Unboxing

Hey Guys,

Sorry that this post is so late, but December has been INSANE. Let’s get to opening this box!

OFRA Metallic Liquid Lipstick – $19.90 USD

OFRA Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick is a one-step full lip color that does not feather. The creamy and soft texture moisturizes your lips while creating a long lasting lipstick effect. 

I am happy to see this in the box. I already own some of the OFRA liquid lipsticks and they are my favourite liquid lipstick formula. It is moussy and not very drying, which is a must for me. This colour is quite out there and I am not sure very wearable, maybe with the right eye look at the right occasion, but I do like seeing it full-size in the box.

Starlooks Ultra Longwear Mechanical Lip Pencil – $19.50 USD

Long lasting, full-coverage lip liner enhances the shape of your lips and gives them the perfect contour and definition. The creamy, moisturizing formula glides on softly to smooth lips and ensures lipsticks stay in place while extending its wear.

This was disappointing because mine was sealed but broken. The stick was stuck in the cap and it is completely dried, so I cannot comment on it except that the colour seemed beautiful.

Model Co Shimmer Bronzer – $24 USD

Create warmth of contour with Model Co Shimmer Bronze. It is a light-reflecting bronzer that brightens and illuminates the complexion, giving the effect of a natural glow with a hint of shimmer. Perfect for given skin sheer, natural colour effects, this oil control pressed powder is perfect for everyday use. Suitable for all skin types and tones.

I am not a fan of shimmer bronzers and I think I will be donating this one. If you like them, you will love this. I have received another shade of a matte one from this company in another subscription box and I liked it but it was the wrong shade. Based on that, I think it is a good primer but shimmer is not for me. I have a couple I love, Too Faced Milk Chocolate and the Physician’s Formula Butter Bronzer.

Pur-lisse Pur-Eye Adore Serum – $65 USD

Active ingredients like soy protein and fresh marine plants bring 4x the power against aging in this intensive eye serum. Works against wrinkles, dark circles, and puffiness while still hydrating and lifting.

This is a great item in the box, this brand is expensive. I really like their moisturizer with SPF 30 and I would not purchase it since it’s about $70 CAD. This suckers is $65 USD! The down side is that we go another eye cream in the November box and I sure have not used it yet, so now  I have another cream in the queue. This item makes the box for me tho.

Pure Cosmetics Eyeshadow Palette – $50 USD

A palette featuring 12 wearable shades inspired by the popular smoky eye trend.

This palette is obviously meant to be a dupe to the UD Naked 3… but $50!? No fracking way it is worth that. The packaging feels cheap and is hard to open. I haven’t swatched it but just by the feel of it, I cannot say this is a “dupe”, not for that price, I would go get the UD one instead. I will not swatch it since I will be donating it instead, someone will enjoy this much more than me.

The box has an awesome value of $178.40 USD and 241.36 CAD. It is pretty insane if you ask me. Even if this box is my least favourite one I have received so far, I will keep Boxycharm. Just for the cream alone, this box was worth it!

What did you get in your box this month?
