Review: BoxyCharm May 2018

Hey Guys,
Today I'm going to share my thoughts on my BoxyCharm for May. For those of you unfamiliar with BoxyCharm, it is a monthly beauty subscription box. You receive 4-5 FULL SIZED products each month. The subscription is $21.00 a month and usually has a theme.  The theme for May was "Boxy Bash". It was named this because May is BoxyCharm's 5th year anniversary/birthday.  I wasn't super excited about the sneak peaks when I saw them. Keep reading to see what I got and to hear thoughts. Also, make sure to check out the discount codes for May!

PUR Cosmetics Sculptor Highlight & Contour Palette $30.00
Review: BoxyCharm May 2018
I appreciate that they put a PUR product in this box however I feel like those contour shades are way too dark for me. I haven't decided if I am going to try this out or pass it on to a friend. I already have a few other contour palettes that I don't use.

Cover FX Blurring Primer $38.00
Review: BoxyCharm May 2018
I actually really like this primer. It's very similar in consistency to the Benefit Porefessional primer. It does give my skin a more flawless look after applying. It also makes my skin feel really soft and silky.

Pretty Vulgar The Ink Gel Eyeliner $24.00
Review: BoxyCharm May 2018
The packaging of this eyeliner is GORGEOUS! I love all the beautiful details. However, I just don't use this type of eyelinerso this product is a miss for me personally.

Beauty Creations Long Wear Matte Lip Gloss in Sweet Heart $10.00
Review: BoxyCharm May 2018
I wanted to like this liquid lipstick but I'm just not crazy about it. First off, they call it a matte lip gloss which makes no sense at all. I also think it smells kind of cheap. It's drying but also doesn't budge at all once its on the lips. This may be a plus for some people. I just don't love this product and don't reach for it. There are way better liquid lipsticks that I own.

Aesthetica Pro Brush Series 3 Piece Brush Set $45.00
Review: BoxyCharm May 2018
I always love getting brushes but again, this set specifically is a miss for me personally. I won't use either of the two liner brushes and I already have 2 or 3 spoolie brushes for my brows. I would keep that one brush but I don't want to break up the set because I may gift it to someone or sell it on Poshmark.

Aesthetica Pro Brush Series P12 Powder Brush $27.00
Review: BoxyCharm May 2018
Once again, I do love getting brushes but this powder brush is just too small for face powder in my opinion. I love big fluffy brushes to apply my face powder. I know I won't reach for this over my other brushes that I own.

TOTAL VALUE: $174.00

Cover FX- 20% off site wide with code BOXY

Overall, this box has one of the highest values I've seen thus far. That being said, this is the first box that I have been disappointed in a long time. BoxyCharm has been killing it since last summer. I have never really been bummed about a box. However, this box was really boring and underwhelming to me.  We even got 6 products this month and it didn't seem to make a difference. I won't use most of these products. The only one I've used more than once was the Cover FX primer. I just feel like the boxes have been so awesome that since it's there birthday month it should have been amazing. Anyways, next month's looks alot better. We will be getting Gabby's (BoxyCharm's social media person) new palette from her very first makeup like Alamar Cosmetics. Some of the colors are out of my comfort zone but the pigmentation looks amazing. We also will be getting lashes, and products from Luxie Brushes, Ofra Cosmetics, and Sol De Janeiro.
