Time for another Boxycharm post, except this month was a BoxyLuxe! It comes with 9 products and usually a bonus product as well. The theme of this month is ‘la vie en rose’. I knew a couple item that would be in the box which got me excited to finally get it in the mail. They do take a little longer than the normal boxes but it is definitely worth the wait! All prices I list are USD.
The first item I grabbed was actually the bonus item for this month. It’s a Boxycharm Train case which I believe you can buy on their website for $20. It seems a decent size, it fit all of the products I got which this box with room left over for a couple more items. I might bring this with me when I go to Cuba.
This next product is a little different, it’s an Eyebrow Cushion from Iconic which retails for $40. I personally would never pay that much for this product. I like brow pencils better and just find this so strange.
The next product I was hoping I would get, it’s Lilly Lashes Exclusive Faux Mink Gaia Lashes. They retail for $24.99, they are cruelty free and are good up until 20 wears! I will definitely be getting the use of these, I love getting lashes in these boxes I was about to go buy a pair and now I don’t need to.
The next item in a duo set from Deborah Lippmann which retails ar $20. I’ve never used their nail polish before but I’ve given it to friends for Christmas gifts and they loved it. I really like the pinky colour so I will be using these.
The next item is from IT Cosmetics, it’s the Confidence in a Cream Transforming Moisturizing Super Cream which retails for $48. It’s an anti-again moisturizer which I don’t need right now but might give it away to someone that will get use out of it.
The next product I reached for is a Wander Beauty Lift Off Purifying and Brightening Peel Off Mask that retails for $34. It is a rose gold mask to give you a smoother, clearer, and brighter complexion. I have so many masks that I will probably give this away although I love that it’s funky and a different colour.
The next item also came with two-in-one as well! A powder and a highlight brush from Moda Brushes which together retail for $29.99. I have used both already and I really liked them both! I didn’t know how I would feel about the highlight brush because I’m use to different brushes for that but I actually really liked it and will use it more often.
This next item is one of my favourites from the box which is a Becca Cosmetic Ultimate Lipstick Love in the shade Taupe which I love! It’s more nude than it looks in this picture with a nice glossy finish. This lipstick retails for $24.
The next beauty product is another one of my favorites in the box, it is the Cover FX Perfector Face Palette which retails for $45. I really like the lush, highlight, brightener, and contour. I think this will be an amazing palette for travelling because you could also use these for an easy eyeshadow look.
This last item is my all-time favorite for the box and it is the 15-shade Artistry Palette by Morphe which retails for $16. This is actually the first Morphe item I’ve ever used and it will not be the last it is so beautiful! It blends so well and makes amazing looks both for bold and everyday!
I was so amazied by this box it was amazing! Defiantly the best of the year! I will use everything but maybe one or two items. The full retail price of the box is $301.98 which is amazing for the price you pay! Unfortunately due to money situations I do have to put the box on hold for a few months but as soon as I have enough I will be getting them again!
These are quick pictures of me using the makeup from the box, I used the Lipstick, eyeshadow palette, the face palette, and the eyebrow product. I really love the products and they all worked so well, I also used the brushes to apply.
The first box of the year is always exciting! The Spring box of the FabFitFun might be the last one I get for a while until my boyfriend and I are more financially stable. I’ll miss getting the boxes but will look forward to when I am able to start it back up. I opened the box and the first item I grabbed was the Lavido Aromatic Body Lotion in the scent citrus. I love these body creams, they are most helpful to me personally. This item retails for $19.
The second item was a Puifying Face Cleanser by Tula probiotic Skincare. It retails for $28 and is just a cleanser.
The third item is a Leave In Conditioner by Ouai. I don’t really use these products so I might give this away. It retails for $26.
The next item I have received before in a Boxycharm and haven’t used much of it. It’s the Dr. Brandt No More Baggage eye de-puffing gel. It does help I just have other products I enjoy more than this one. I will be giving this to my friend and it retails for $42.
The next item is the Manna Kadar Champage Body Scrub which retails for $24. I always want to use body scrubs but never end up doing it.
The next item is a necklace from The 2 Bandits retailing for $30. It’s the first thing in the box that I think I will actually use. I love how simple it is and will definitely wear it.
The second last item in the box is a Deux Lux Demi Backpack which I think is super cute and know I will get a lot of use out of this spring and summer. It retails for $75 and in my opinion is probably my faccourite thing in this box!
The last item is perfect for spring and summer, it is the Sunnylife Lovers Picnic Set in the colour Malibu. Kody and I love going for picnics so with this perfect for us to use on the nice days ahead of us. It retails for $30 and I know we will get good use out of it. This is another one of my favorite in the box.
Overall, the box was a little underwhelming for me and I think the break from the box is a good thing for me. I’m only really going to enjoy three of the items in this box which doesn’t really match the value of what I’m spending. The retail value of the box comes to $274.
This month went by so quickly! I’ve been working a lot and it was test month so I was always busy! Near the beginning I was able to go visit my cousin to celebrate her getting into her program! We went out for dinner and then the next day lunch. I had such a great time!
My boyfriend and I were unable to celebrate Valentine’s Day until the Sunday after. We had an amazing day starting with breakfast at Cora’s, the arcade games, fun at Skyzone (the pictures below), and finally dinner.
My boyfriend and I went to a restaurant called Piccolos. It was super busy but they were so kind and even gave us free garlic bread because of it. The meal was amazing and we had such an great day!
I went back to SkyZone with my cousin and completed the junior challenge. We had such a fun time!
This month I watched Victorious, Sam & Cat, and the newest season of Shameless. I also started rewatching Game of Thrones with my boyfriend and Pretty Little Liars on my own.
I was obsessed with Ariana’s new album and had it on repeat all month! Some other favourite songs this month were Medicate but Gabbie Hannah and Expectations by Lauren Jauregui.
