Boxy Charm Review - November

Boxy Charm time!

Boxy Charm is $21.00 a month with shipping included 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 “Beauty Par-Tea” which is a cute idea.  It seems more like a spring idea, but cute nonetheless.  

Here is the November Boxy Charm!
1)  Luxe Rose Gold Concearler Eye Brush #211  – (FULL SIZE)
I don’t use concealer too often (gasp) but I think I might start soon, my face has been breaking out. Boo.  This seems to be the perfect brush for that.  I also think it would be a good brush for using any cream shadows.  The description says it is “coated with antibacterial solution” which sounds a bit odd, but hey, it can’t hurt right?
Full Size: $12.00 My Value: $12.00

2)  Pur~Lisse Pur~Eye Adore Quandra Benefit Eye Serum - .5 oz(FULL SIZE)
I have gotten several products from this brand in past beauty boxes.  I do like them, but they aren’t magical enough to pay the price they charge for them, so I won’t ever be buying them.  At least this will last a lot longer than the small, equally high priced moisturizers I’ve received since you don’t use much at a time! The description says it contains “French marie plants to bring 4x the power in antiaging” Ooo La La!
Full Size: $65.00 My Value: $65.00

3)   Manna Kadar Liplocked Priming Glass Stain in “All of Me” – .18oz.  (FULL SIZE)
I thought this might be a nice color for me, but it turns out it is too bright for my taste. It was too drying for me as well.  My lips seem to be quite picky.  I do like the packaging for this though.
Full Size: $24.00 My Value: $24.00

4)   Coolway Leave-In Treatment – 2 oz. (FULL SIZE)
I can’t believe this is considered a full size product for something you are supposed to “spray generously” into your hair.  I feel like I would only get a few uses out of it! The product itself is a pretty thick consistency, kind of like lotion.  I honestly can’t see myself spraying this on dry hair for fear that it would look greasy!  It does smell really good though, so I will give it a try on damp/wet hair.
Full Size: $19.95 My Value: $19.95
5)   Studio Makeup Soft Blend Blush Sahara in “Wildflower” – .17 oz. (FULL SIZE)
I love the color of this!  It is so perfect for me.  What I don’t love is how drying it is.  I wore it alone for maybe 30 minutes and had to add a gloss over it because it felt too dry.  2 hours later my lips were peeling.  Lame. I don’t do well with the “long-lasting” lip products.
Full Size: $17.00 My Value: $17.00
Final Cost: $21.00
Final Value: $137.95

I can’t say I love this month’s box, but I don’t hate it either. I will be using everything but the lip stain.  I’m not an eye serum person, but I guess it doesn’t hurt to use it! I am excited to make use of the concealer brush and the blush though.  Again….I like it….but love it.  Oh well.
