Hello my angels
I’m aware that this post is way behind schedule but I had some issues with this box and in addition to that, I had to wrap up my top products for 2018 before moving onto the topics of 2019. I did have a missing item in this box and so I had to repurchase the item. Which meant that I couldn’t get the identical one that was originally sent to me, but I did get one of the variations offered. I have launched a claim with Aramex and I am awaiting a response from them.
Now for those of you that are new to my blog, Boxycharm is a subscription box that costs $21.00 a month and offers 4 to 5 full sized products for you to try valued at $100.00 or more.
The theme for January 2019 was boxy and chill and it had a total of 5 items
The box featured:
Briogeo Roscaro Milk Reparative Leave-In Conditioning Spray $12.00
Ofra Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick in the shade Miami Fever $20.00
Tarte Rainforest Of The Sea Vol 3 $36.00 (I was supposed to receive Vol 1, but that was the missing item from my box)
Tatcha Luminous Dewy Skin Face Mask $24.00
Billion Dollar Brows Universal Brow Pencil $18.00
Briogeo Roscaro Milk Reparative Leave-In Conditioning Spray is said to effectively restore your hairs softness, moisture and shine. It detangles wet hair and protects against heat while locking in moisture, restoring luster and diminishing frizz. I haven’t tried this yet but I will keep you posted when I do. There was a lot of speculation that this was a repeat product from Boxycharm, however, it is a different product. The Briogeo don’t despair repair strength + moisture leave in mask was the item received previously.
I received the Ofra Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick in the shade Miami Fever. I have raved about the formula of Ofra liquid lipsticks before. They are super comfortable on the lips and last a really long time. These are my favourite liquid lipsticks. This is a very beautiful orange summery shade. I will feature it in a makeup look soon.
I purchased the Tarte Rainforest Of The Sea Vol 3 from a dear friend who received it in her box. There are 8 shades in this palette, 1 matte and 7 shimmer shades. These shadows have an almost creamy texture to them but they are definitely powder shadows. They are very pigmented and blend well. I used this throughout the day and had no issues with it fading. I will say however, that these shades are too light for my skin tone and there is no transition shade so I used my bronzer in the crease. I even tried using the darkest shade in the outer corner but it was still too light. If I had received my original palette, I do think that those darker shades would have worked better for my skin tone.
I used this palette as a highlighter and I loved it for that purpose. I will get a lot of use from it by using it as a highlighting palette. You can see from my picture in the extreme end just how glowy my skin is, purely due to this palette.
I was very happy to receive 2 of the Tatcha Luminous Dewy Skin Face Mask in this box. Tatcha is a really high end luxury brand. This mask is packed with a ton of great ingredients that nourishes your skin from within and instantly restores skins health and radiance. I have not tried these yet but it’s on my to do list for tonight 😉
NB: Here’s a little tip for you guys, these packs contain 20mls of product in them and you know it’s not the sheet that’s doing the work, it’s the serum. Don’t waste it! Put the remaining serum into a spray bottle and sprits some on whenever you need to. Why get 2 uses when you can get at least 10 😉
This of course doesn’t only pertain to these masks, you could do the same for any sheet mask including your eye masks.
Lastly we have the Billion Dollar Brows Universal Brow Pencil. This is a precise retractable pencil that allows you to fill and shape your brows. It’s a little creamier than I’d like it to be. I used it and it didn’t smudge throughout the day. It’s not a bad product , but I just prefer a little drier texture when it comes to my brows.
I hope you guys enjoyed this unboxing. Overall I think it was an ok box, there wasn’t anything that I hated or won’t get use out of . I’m just saying that there was nothing that knocked my socks off. I do have my February box on its way to me so we’ll see how that goes. Have a great night and I’ll be back soon 😉
