Here’s what I received in my first BoxyCharm ever! I am a charmer now! Yas mama! Thanks to BoxyCharm for opening the waitlist which BTW is still open, so if you’ve waited to get on now is the chance. Sign up here.
My First BoxyCharm
The first box was great – the only thing missing in there was some foundation to “beat my face”. They did a great job selecting these products.
Full-Size Products No Mini Bottles or Foil
It doesn’t get any better than that for $21! – It really doesn’t. Unlike other beauty subscription service, BoxyCharm beauty box has 4 to 6 full-size products monthly.
BoxyCharm Subscription is More Than 10 Bucks But Do The Maths
While BoxyCharm subscription is more than the average price of most beauty subscription boxes the value of the products in the box is way over $21.
What Was In My First BoxyCharm Beauty Box
I receive 6 products in this first beauty box. The box included a gel eyeliner, highlighter and contour palette, primer, powder brush, a trio brush set and matte lip gloss.
PÜR The Complexion Authority Sculptor Palette Review
PÜR The Complexion Authority Sculptor Palette: This is a great highlighter and contour palette. The shades are pigmented and I can actually use the contour shades.

Cover FX Blurring Primer Review
Cover FX – Blurring Primer: For me, this was the best deal in the box. I wanted to try the Cover FX blurring primer for the longest but I wasn’t ready to fork out $38 for a primer I wasn’t sure would work. No mama! – I am not about that life. Anyway, I am happy I finally tried it, but I wasn’t blown away so this will not be restocked when the tube is empty.

Aesthetica Pro Brush Series Review
Aesthetica Pro Brush Series: These brushes are well made but for $45 I wouldn’t purchase this trio. However, I wasn’t mad at seeing them in my box. Overall good brushes, however, I wish the angled eyeliner brush wasn’t so thick – I prefer eyeliner brushes thinner.
This trio comes with:
- An Angled Eyeliner Brush
- A Brow Spoolie
- A Fine Tipped Eyeliner Brush
Aesthetica Face Brush Review
Aesthetica Face Brush: The bristles are soft and the brush is well made like the trio set. Again this wouldn’t be a purchase but I guess that’s the beauty of BoxyCharm – trying highly priced products you would probably never try because of the price!
Amazon has way cheaper makeup brushes BTW.

Beauty Creations Long Wear Matte Lipgloss Review
Beauty Creations Long Wear Matte Lipgloss: I like the color of this matte lip gloss but I don’t like the formula. I expected the formula to dry down fully without being sticky but it never did. This matte lip gloss was sticky and it felt heavy on the lips – that’s no for me.

Pretty Vulgar The Ink Gel Eyeliner Review
Pretty Vulgar The Ink Gel Eyeliner: This formula is definitely a dupe for Anastasia Beverly Hills brow pomade. It dries down the same way and has the same consistency. However, depending on your skin tone it might be too dark to use it as a brow gel. I will probably do I full review with swatches comparing the two.
Dupe business aside, the color of this gel eyeliner is not as black as I would prefer it to be. I compared it to three other eyeliners and it’s not as dark. So if you prefer you gel liners extremely black this one will disappoint you.

Is BoxyCharm Worth It?
This is my first BoxyCharm beauty box but girl … I am also subscribed to Ipsy, Play By Sephora, and Birchbox, however, it’s never this good. This box is well over the $21 I paid. If you are hesitating about subscribing to BoxyCharm girl … be like Nike logo and just do it! The list is currently open so you might as well before they close it and add the waitlist again.
