BoxyCharm Subscription – March 2018

Hey guys! Hope you are enjoying some Spring weather! It’s finally starting to feel like Spring here. The sun is shining and temperatures are starting to warm up. Unfortunately that also means allergy season is upon us but thank you God for allergy medicine.

Anyways, here is the variation I received for the March 2018 Boxycharm box. Everyone was to receive the PUR x Boxycharm eyeshadow palette, a Pretty Vulgar blush in one of two possible shades and the Vintage Cosmetics Company Smokey Eye brush trio. Overall I think this is a great box with an amazing value. There is still no waitlist so if you subscribe to Boxycharm now you will be set to get the May 2018 box.

PUR Cosmetics X BoxyCharm 12pc Eyeshadow Palette

I was excited to see this palette. It has 6 matte shades and 6 foiled shimmer shades. The shadows are pigmented and swatch well. I did noticed when swatching that the shimmers Charmer and Alliance were softer and more loosely packed than the other shimmer shades. ALT was also on the softer side but not as much so. I was really impressed with the black shade called Boxy black because of its pigmentation. It only took one and a half swipes to get that swatch and I could have made it go a little farther than I did. This palette can be purchased on PUR Cosmetics website at full price.

Retail value: $36.00

Vegan friendly: Yes

Cruelty free: Yes

 

Here are swatches of all the shadows. Left to right is top row, middle row, than bottom row.

Vintage Cosmetics Smokey Eye Makeup Brush Set

Next up is the brush trio which includes a shadow brush, a angled shadow brush and a smudger brush. They have synthetic bristles and feel on the lighter side in weight. I love how they used playful names on them which adds a fun touch. The shadow brush and smudger brush had soft bristles but the bristles on the angled shadow brush were on the rougher side for some reason. The bristles did softened up after I washed it.    

Retail value: £16.50 GBP

                         $23.25 USD

Vegan friendly: They are made with synthetic bristles

Cruelty free: Not made with animal hair

Butter London Double Decker Lashes Mascara

After that is the Butter London Double Decker Lashes Mascara. This mascara claims to increase lash thickness by 200%, increase lash curl by 314% and is Ophthalmologist tested. It has a nylon fiber brush and an emulsifying system that is lightweight to grab and coat lashes. A lot of mascara comes out on the brush and it has a slight smell that isn’t much different from other mascaras. When I looked on the Butter London website today it appears this mascara has been discontinued.   

Retail value: $20.00

Vegan friendly: No, contains ingredients derived from animals

Cruelty free: Butter London nor their vendors test any of their products on animals

Pretty Vulgar Make Them Blush Blush in Hush Blush

Following is this pigmented and smooth blush in a nice rose shade with a matte finish. I love the muted color of this blush and makes for a great everyday blush.

Bonus – my sister received the other blush shade which is Prim Vixen and it isn’t a color she is interested in so she gave it to me. This blush is a bright pink with a matte finish. This shade felt so smooth and soft when I was swatching it and is a bit smoother than the shade Hush Blush. Swatch down below.
