Boxy Charm Review - January

Boxy Charm time!

I am still glad this is one of the boxes I choose to keep after “Operation Baby: Have to Save Money and Stop My Subscription Boxes!”

The box is $21.00 a month with free shipping and is a “beauty box subscription that surprises you each month with the best beauty products from popular and chic brands. Each box contains full size and luxury size beauty samples from preferred well-known brands.” They aim to cover a whole look from makeup to nails, which I really like. 

The theme this month is “Celebrate in Style” which I could give or take. 

Here is the January Boxy Charm!  

   1)      Beauty for Real The Perfect Pencil Lip Pencil   .04 oz. (FULL SIZE)
            The thing I find really odd about this is it isn’t a specific color.  Are they saying that this 
            pencil would work for EVERY skin color?  That seems a little nuts.  It does look like a nice 
            color for me, but I don’t ever use lip liners.  Maybe I should start?  I mean this one IS 
            supposed to be perfect haha.
Full Size: $14.00 My Value: $14.00

           2)      Beauty for Real True Color Lip Cream in “Always There” – .15 oz. (FULL SIZE)
This is a very pretty color, though a tad dark for me. I would classify this more as a lip gloss versus a lip cream though. That doesn’t matter though, because this lip product is seriously awesome. Not only does it have a mirror on the side of the tube (which I think is genius) it has a stinkin LIGHT in the lid! You press a little button on the top and boom, you can see yourself in the mirror no matter where you are. Hooray for lipstick in all the right places.
Full Size: $22.00 My Value: $22.00

3)   Mirabella Face Primer Makeup Primer – .45 oz.  (FULL SIZE)
I’ve gotten this exact product in another beauty box and I didn’t find anything spectacular about it.  I tried to use it, but it just didn’t have any benefit for me.  The price tag definitely drives me away too, this is not a very large tube!
Full Size: $29.00 My Value: $29.00

4)   Pur-lisse  Skin Sparkle Flash Tattoos – 1 Sheet (FULL SIZE)
I’m not trendy at all and I’m also not 12 so these just aren’t appealing to me.
Full Size: $12.00 My Value: $12.00

5)   Tarte Maracuja Bronzing Serum – 1.7 oz. (FULL SIZE)
Maybe I am weird, but I’ve never been one to feel like I really need tan skin!  I barely even tanned before my own wedding. If this were for the body, I might give this a try, but for my face?  It doesn’t really work for me because I generally use a pretty full coverage foundation.  Anything I wear would cover whatever color this serum gave to my face.
Full Size: $47.00 My Value: $47.00

Final Cost: $21.00
Final Value: $124.00

Such an amazing value!  As always right?  I always feel like I definitely got my money’s worth for this box. Though I won’t be getting any use from some of these items, there are others that I definitely will be using and make the box well worth the cost!

What are your thoughts?

  1. My 16 year old daughter asked that I get her a subscription box for a year for her 17th birthday. Do you have one you would suggest? Her biggest focus is hair and nails.
