I am excited to get the MUG blush, but I just hope I get a color that will work with my skin tone. This box isn't overly exciting me, but I will use the blush, lip liner, and brow gel.

Boxycharm has become boring to me. I wanted to love this month but I don't.

 

Will stay unsubbed for now.

Even though I unsubbed, I still got an email today with the spoiler for a Makeup Geek blush. I prefer cream blushes, so I'll wait to see what else the box includes before subscribing again.

Got my box today (a little bit later than usual for some reason) and thought I wouldn't like it, but was pleasantly surprised! Here is a little break down:

 

Makeup Geek Blush in XOXO - $15 - Favorite item in the box! First I am just so happy every time I see a Makeup Geek product in a subscription box. I think that it is a brand that does not get a lot of love in subscription boxes, and I love how great her products have become. The packaging first of all is so cute! The outer box has a rose gold foil, and the compact itself is so pretty! The compact is a rose gold gunmetal type color, nice weight, magnetized lid, nice logo, and fantastic mirror. Not sure if this is the new blushes she was creating (not even sure if those are released or if these are them, going to have to look into that) but the blush is very nice. The shade XOXO is a beautiful coral with creamy texture. I am very impressed by this, can't wait to try it out! (oh man sorry that was so long, got carried away there :rolleyes: )

 

The Brow Gal Clear Brow Gel - $20 - Have too many eyebrow gels at the moment so I might swap this and don't want to open it, but the packaging looks cute

 

Catherine Malandrine Romance de Provence Deluxe Mini Sprayer 10ml - $20 (not sure if this is the price for a fuller size, but that is what is listed on the card that came in the box) - Not sure if it was from Boxycharm but I just got a fragrance by this line as well recently. This one smells a lot nicer to me though! The other fragrance didn't last well on me, but I am hoping this one will

 

Starlooks Luxe Lip Liner in Charmed - $19.50 - Looks like this lip pencil was made special for Boxycharm with the packaging and color name, is very cute! Like how it is a retractable twist up pencil. Shade seems creamy and budge proof (for swatch), but while outside packaging seems more neutral and deeper, shade is actually brighter and more vivid. I am not usually one for lip pencils, but this seems like a nice shade

 

Ella + Mila Nail Polish in Pistache - $10.50 - This is a light pistachio color, formula seems nice. Packaging is cute with the little elephant (I pay way too much attention to the packaging I know). Seems nice for spring!

 

PUR Double Ego - Duo Ended Eyeliner in Tasmania - $21 - I don't see PUR in subscription boxes that much, like the surprise! This eyeliner is one side liquid eyeliner, one side pencil. I hardly wear eyeliner so I am not going to open this, but I think it was a good eyeliner than the usual black kohl liner that is mostly sent out

 

I really like the box this month! I wasn't too sure about it before it arrived, but I actually am pleasantly surprised. I am always impressed by how they get such an amazing value to the boxes

 

Does anyone else still subscribe to Boxycharm? How did you guys feel about the box this month?

I still subscribe! I haven't gotten my box yet BUT I'm not sure about the eyebrow gel or lip liner as I almost never use the latter and have never tried the former. The nail polish is my power color, that minty/pale green is life for me. I saw pictures and it seems like everyone is getting different eyeliner duo colors and I'm hoping for a purple or black or brown version. The perfume, I like the other one we got a month or two back from Boxy and I hope this one is just as good. And the blush, I'm finally getting into using blushes but I really want the darker/purpley shade of the choices as I don't have a shade like that and I love experimenting with my colors.

I really like the May box so I re-subbed. The only thing I don't like is the perfume. I HATE perfumes and this is the third one in the few months I've had this service that I see them sending perfumes out! 

 

Anyway I hope I get the May box because apparently the Makeup Geek blushes in this box haven't been released yet, so the people getting it in this box are getting it earlier than everyone else.

I'm tempted to sign back up just for the powder lol. I canceled months ago and haven't missed it, but all I ever wanted in a sub box were powder, bb cream, foundations, concealers, I know they're too color specific.

Hoping that since we are getting the brand Girlactik for June that we will get one of their highlighters in the future, have always wanted to try those

Just got my box, it's pretty awesome, although my nail polish is in a baby blue which is my least fave color. I'm so stupidly excited for the 3 pack of Farmacy face masks, been dying to try them!

I'm really happy with this month's box, and last month was AMAZING. After a few pretty crappy months, it looks like Boxycharm is getting their touch back.

Got my box today and was happy to get the pink Mally eyeshadow brush, I was not looking forward to the Icy Blue liner or the green brush. The PYT smells amazing to me, its got a kind of 'clean' scent to it, I just wish it wasn't so expensive especially if it works wonders in my hair. The palette is definitely my favorite item, I just find it hard to believe that the price is $59. The eyeshadows are all really pigmented and its the perfect size, I have 4 zpalettes and while I love them, 3 of them are too bulky and 1 of them is almost in tatters because I use it all the time. I'm almost tempted to buy another box just to get another palette so I can have a back up. I love this subscription!

I was so relieved to get the shadow brush, there's no way I could pull off that ice blue eyeliner! The brush isn't the best quality, but I'll still get plenty of use from it. I really needed a z palette and this one is a fantastic size! I used the eyeshadow today and found the colors to be flattering and pigmented.

 

Boxycharm is a great value. Even though I like Ofra, it would be refreshing to see a bit more variety of brands. It almost makes me wonder if Ofra owns Boxycharm. I haven't opened the hair oil yet, but I can't wait to give it a try.

    • I used Tinder some time ago, but I don't really like it these days. There are so many bad and fake profiles... I like using some other dating services. I am sure that you will find something interesting and really working for you, good luck with it
    • I'm having some backsliding, but still trying! I'm really seeing progress using my full size cleanser, toner and moisturizer. I decided to change my routine. I have been experiencing for a while now some strange kind of boredom. When I'm not working, I really don't have fun any more. I don't get chores done either. I'll just get up, and the time just passes, and my room will be messy with a pile of laundry, and I don't get it done, and it makes me feel bad. I can't focus on reading a book or watching a show or movie. I always feel my weekend is a waste. I'm not having fun when I'm lazy like this either; it feels awful.  I decided to change my routine and fight this state! I told HR I wanted to work on Saturday every week and have Thursday off every week, which makes both my work weeks and time off shorter periods. I'm hoping it will be easier to make the most of time off when it is one day instead of an entire weekend. And I might feel less tired when the work week is broken up. I also made a list of all I hope to do in my days off. I want to have my laundry done, cleaning done, write in journal, post on Makeup Talk [I do enjoy writing], watch a show or movie and read a book, and best of all use a face mask on the two days off!  I'm not using all my face masks at all. I got a flyer from Yves Rocher with some awesome new face masks and scrubs. I really want one, but not until I've used up all the masks I have now! The Thursday and Sunday off will be my special beauty days to use up products with extra relaxing beauty routines.  Last night I went out with a friend of mine and my brother to Family Dollar. While she was shopping, I looked in the beauty section. I enjoyed it. I saw some things I wanted, but did not get, because I don't need them. I saw: Aromatherapy diffuser set with a little cherub. Pretty makeup brushes. I already have a ton. No reason to wear makeup because I always go out with a face mask. I should make an effort to use eye makeup though. I need to care for myself better and put effort into myself.  Skin care set with cleanser, toner, and cream in one box, only five dollars. I think the cleanser had shea butter. I wanted to try it, but have tons of skin care going back to 2017 I need to get through!  After we took our friend to eat, we came out and had a nail in our tire and a flat. The roadside assistance man was really nice though. I got a Car Care credit card and an appointment to get it fixed today. I am backsliding with my debt snowball, but I'm not going to let it stop me. I'm just going to keep going and start over with whatever debt is smallest, being diligent with No Buy/Project Use It Up.  I have been more productive this morning, started laundry and cleaning and wrote in my journal. The more I try the better it will get! Then maybe I won't order takeout so much. I'm kind of looking forward to going to the auto shop, because it will be something to accomplish, and then I'll go to lunch with my brother (less expensive than getting Door Dash).  The first mask I will be using up is my smallest sample, Glamglow Supermud Clearing Treatment. I have many mini masks from Ipsy, etc. and I believe two full size masks and two full size scrubs, and a box of sheet masks.   
    • I guess you should exercise and eat healthy for it!
    • You absolutely tip the student!! Regardless if they have been in the business for 20 years or they are just starting out - they are putting their time and effort into giving you a gorgeous cut/colour that you will love
    • It's awesom to have the national lipstick day could really amazed the women and girls ! They will ove to have different variety of shade and color ...
