I hope you all are enjoying a safe and fun Memorial day weekend! Nothing much going on for me. I am just getting things done around the house before heading to bed super early. This week starts my 2am shifts for work, and let me tell you I am never fully prepared for that.
Today I am going to share with you what I received in this months Boxy Charm!
“Boxy Charm is a monthly subscription box where you receive 5 full size beauty products valued over $100 for only $21 a month.”
This months theme is Boxy Bash for celebrating Boxy Charm’s birthday. This months box also included 6 full size products instead of 5! Although, I have to admit that I was not a fan of this months box. It was bound to happen eventually right? I have had this subscription for over a year now, and this is the first month that I really didn’t like what I received. Still I think that Boxy Charm is totally worth it, and I am still excited for next month. So with that said let’s get into the products!
Blurring Primer by CoverFX
The last primer I used from CoverFX broke me out really bad which made me nervous to try this one. However, this one so far has not given me any problems. This is a typical pore filling primer. It has a silicone feel to it, and it has a dark tint. The dark tint blends away when you apply it to the skin. I like this primer, but I admit it’s not one I will grab on a regular basis. I used to love primers like this, but now I only use them in combination with another primer.

Sculptor Palette By PUR
Seeing another PUR palette in the box was a major disappointment. I have never had luck with past PUR palettes that we received. I will say the lightest highlight in the palette is gorgeous! I really do see myself using it a lot. I also like the way the lighter contour looks once it blends out. The problem is that it is a nightmare to blend out. This is the problem I always have with PUR palettes. The light contour would typically be too dark for me, but it is seriously lacking in pigment. Therefore, I can make it work with a lot of blending. However, I really doubt I will reach for this just to use the highlight.

P12 Face Brush by Aesthetica
I usually love to receive brushes, but this one I do not like at all. It is a very soft brush, and it feels amazing. However, my problem with this brush is it is way to flimsy. I prefer a brush that has a bit more density to it. I have tried using this with bronzer, blush, and even for sweeping away powder. Unfortunately, I did not like it for any of those things. In my opinion it needs to be a denser brush.
Retail Price: $27
3 Piece Eye Trio by Aesthetica
This eye trio set is okay, but nothing to be wowed by. The spooly brush works fine, but I don’t usually grab just a spooly brush. I usually use the one that has my brow brush on the opposite side. The angled brush I don’t understand at all. It is so thick that I have no idea why you would ever use it. Truthfully, you could not get a thin line with this at all, nearly your whole eye lid would be covered in liner. The last brush in the set is again too flimsy. You can get a thin line with the brush, but it is very hard to keep it neat. You can make it work, but I have other brushes that work better.
Retail Price: $45
The Ink Gel Eyeliner by Pretty Vulgar
The packaging for this product is the coolest packaging ever! I am so in love with the packaging, and I will definitely be leaving this on display on my vanity. It is also a great formula! It is jet black, creamy, and it dries down matte. I don’t have any problem with this product. I just don’t use liner much anymore because I find that it doesn’t look well with my hooded eyes. However, I will keep this to use from time to time.
Retail Price: $24
Matte Liquid Lip Gloss by Beauty Creations
If you have followed me for a while you already know what my problem with this product is going to be. A matte gloss? Seriously! Why do companies do this? You cannot market something to be matte and glossy when those two things are total opposites. Marketing fails are such a pet peeve for me! So obviously this is a matte liquid lipstick that does not transfer. Aside from the bad marketing I still don’t love this product. If you apply a very thin layer it does look nice, and it is long-lasting. However, as the day goes it starts to get a tacky feel to it. So when you press your lips together they stick. Not my favorite formula because of that feel.
Retail Price: $10

Thank you all so much for spending your time in my little corner! I truly do appreciate it. I hope you enjoyed this unboxing, and I am sorry that this months was a lot more negative. I hate to be negative here, but I also think that honesty is important. If you are a charmer let me know what you thought of this months box!
