BOXYCHARM

I hope everyone had a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend!

Let’s get right into this… ( I sound a bit too excited don’t I?!) I purchase very little beauty products (mostly mascaras and lipsticks), because I barely use anything else. But after doing some research on all of these new “boxes” that have been trending for quite a while now, I had to get my hands on one of them.

I came across IPSY, BIRCHBOX, BOXYCHARM and GLOSSYBOX which have been trending the most lately. IPSY and BIRCHBOX is a beauty subsciption for $10 a month (free shipping) and sends you small samples of make-up goodies. IPSY sends it in more of a cute little make-up pouch (which I found adorable) and each month its a new theme. BIRCHBOX on the other hand is more of a skin-care subscription. Oh, as for the themes you really do not know what they are until you receive your box (thats the whole point of it!)

As for BOXYCHARM and GLOSSYBOX these are beauty subscriptions for $21 a month (free shipping) with more high-end quality make-up/skin-care/hair-care products. For about $11 more, you can get a mixture of sample and full sized products all in one! Yes, FULL SIZED goodies!

GLOSSYBOX is a luxury size beauty subscription box, hand picked by beauty experts (they ask you what you like etc). It has many brand products from Benefit, Lancome, OPI, and much more. This box also has a “theme” every month with the boxes being theme related (how cute?) The packaging is beyond adorable. It also comes with a small card telling you how much this box is worth, and the items in it.

BOXYCHARM is a luxury size beauty subscription box, and it sends you FULL size items. They send from 4-5 full sized beauty products all in one box for $21! So that mascara or bronzer your spending about $20-$40 on each, you are getting that ALL in ONE box for $21. It also sends you a card, telling you the name of the items and how much they are in retail stores.

I definitely fell for this box, I mean come on who wouldn’t?! Again, these are high-end beauty brands. So I went ahead and ordered mine for a first try, received it today and… I.LOVE.IT. I waited forever for this and it was worth the wait. Especially when you need new makeup items and you get them in the box. This is what I received in my “First BOXYCHARM” box and I had to share with you all.

To begin, I got ALL FULL SIZED items (woo-hoo). So the theme for May 2015 is –

“BOLD & BEAUTIFUL”- {Be bold. Be bright. Be beautiful. Charmers, this May, go beyond your comfort zone and boldly dare to be your own kind of beautiful}

ITEMS:

❤ ModelCo Bronze Shimmer (full size) $22.00

❤ The Lip Bar Lipstick (full size) $20.00

❤ Bodyography Essential Brow Trio (full size) $19.00

❤ Bodyography Brow Brush (full size) $19.00

❤ Lauren B. Beauty Nail Polish (full size) $18.00

I have been desperately needing a nice brow brush, and I received one in my box. As for the bronzer and brow trio I do not use those items. I might end up using it as eye-shadow or might give it away (who knows). The nail polish is such a bright color, and I will give that a try. Lastly, the lipstick I love the bold color! Very Spring/Summer, knowing myself I always dare to do different lip colors.

So ladies, this was my review. Trust me, I was confused too but if you want to give it at try start with BOXYCHARM. I have posted links below to have you look at the differences:
