Hey ya’ll 😉
In my previous post I told you guys that I had a problem with missing items from my Boxycharm for the past two months. I also told you that I purchased two of the items that were missing from my October Boxycharm (link to the previous post below) I know it’s very late for this post, but I thought I’d share what I got and some of my thoughts on the products.
The theme for Boxycharm October 2018 was Alter Ego and it had a total of 5 items.
The box features:
It Cosmetics Superhero elastic stretch volumizing mascara $24.00
South Mane Beauty under eye gels $10.00
PUR the complexion authority midnight masquerade palette $38.00
Kat Von D everlasting liquid lipstick $20.00
Briogeo don’t despair repair strength + moisture leave in mask $16.00
So first off we have the Superhero mascara by It Cosmetics. This mascara is said to have elastic stretch technology (peptides, proteins, biotin, lash-lifting polymers and collagen) to add incredible length and volume to your lashes. I simply love this mascara. It adds extreme length and volume to my lashes. It builds up easily with a single coat and my lash line appears to be fuller. This mascara doesn’t flake or smudge on me at all.
Under eye gels by South Mane Beauty refreshes, cools and revitalizes the under eye area. This is a 3 pack eye mask. It claims to reduce puffiness, reduce dark circles and moisturise the under eye area. I haven’t tried these but I am looking forward to it.
Next up we have the PUR Cosmetics midnight masquerade palette. This palette consists of 6 eyeshadows and 4 shimmery face powders. All of which are highly pigmented and beautiful. The eyeshadows and the face products are buttery smooth and are of great quality. I seem to prefer the face products more that the eyeshadows however, simply because I have a lot of eyeshadows in my collection and this palette has just 1 matte shade in it. There is no lighter mattes to use as a transition shade and I think that’s where the palette is lacking, but overall it’s a great palette but I just wish they added in a few more matte shades.
Kat Von D everlasting liquid lipstick in the shade Crucifix is a very deep dark brown. These liquid lipsticks are one of the best formulas I have tried. It doesn’t get powdery or flake off. Its lightweight and creamy and it lasts a very long time. This product has grown on me in such a short space of time. I used this to create my ombre lips in my previous post. It’s very comfortable and it dries down to a matte non sticky finish. I can’t wait to try more of these lip products.
Last we have the Briogeo hair mask. This is a leave-in conditioner that is supposed to moisturise, strengthen and repair your hair. Its unique formulation of micro-encapsulated argan oil and optimal blend of transformative nutrients that include B-vitamins, coconut oil, algae extract and biotin helps promote healthier hair. I will test this continuously for a month and let you know the results.
Overall I really liked this month’s box. My favourite items are definitely the Kat Von D lipstick and the It Cosmetics mascara. You guys know how I feel about Boxycharm. Its great value for money and gives you an opportunity to try different products from different brands and build your makeup collection.
