Unboxing BoxyCharm Beauty Subscription Box
When I first heard about BoxyCharm my mind immediately went to thoughts of baubbles and jewelry but this monthly subscription service is actually beauty based. Quite brimming actually. Over the years many of my current favorites, now always at the ready next to the sink, came from discovery boxes like these. It's mind boggling how many beauty products are out there and how many I could have missed out on if they were not bundled up as part of a surprise. These, I must admit, are some of my favorite types of subscription boxes. Here's what came in April's edition below:
BoxyCharm Makeup
Ignore the Kevyn Aucoin makeup brush, that's mine and did not come in Boxycharm's pretty black gift box but everything else did.

First is this bright purple nail polish by bellapierre in the aptly named Lavender. True to name it goes on sheer jelly fashion and dries uber quick. When it dries there is zero shine which was unexpected. A glossy top coat really made Lavender pop. Next is a liquid lipstick by Ofra in the bright melon color Hollywood. Plush and creamy this remind me of classic lipstains in how they dry on the lips but surprisingly this was gone within an hour. Still, while it was on it was lovely and quite bold.

Something I was really, really excited to find nestled in the black squiggles was this peachy hued blush by ModelCo called Peach Bellini 02. How I love a good peach. Sadly it arrived powdered but I'm determined to fix it and make it work. The color seemed soft, matte and perfection. Something else from ModelCo is a one-fits-all shade to enhance the pout. I think it does a nice job while not being too obvious. It's not surprisingly lovely with the above Hollywood lipstick. I've heard about this line from Australian and UK friends so it's awesome to experience them too.

Finely there is a weighty bottle of Glow finishing oil by Coolway. Actually the most expensive find of the box and insanely useful come summer. Everything together inside this pretty black box with the magenta ribbon totals well over $100. The lip liner alone pays for the entire Boxycharm! Such a lovely gift, thank you Mum!
