Boxycharm January 2016 Beauty Box Subscription Review

Boxycharm is a great beauty box if you love getting makeup. As the contents of this box attest, makeup features heavily in Boxycharm and makes it a little different than the others out there at this price point. Specifically Glossybox.

I think I might like Boxycharm more than Glossybox. Especially if I compare each of this month’s boxes. Boxycharm wins for usefulness and awesomeness.

The Cost: $21/month

What You Get: Full size and luxury size beauty samples of the best beauty products from popular and chic brands. Anything from nail care and hair products to the top skin care and cosmetics.

Blinc Amplified Mascara- Coats lashes with a glossy, volumizing and extending application that forms tiny, water resistant “tubes” around the lashes.
I received black and I’m pretty excited about this one. It sounds like it does what my all time favorite mascara does with forming “tubes.” It’d be nice to find a comparable one that doesn’t need to be ordered from Korea.
Value: $26

Coastal Scents Revealed Smoky Eyeshadow Palette- I received the last two Coastal Scents palettes that I have in a Boxycharm as well! This is such a fun addition to any box. I won’t be using this because I just got the Urban Decay Smoky palette but I still love finding this in a box.

Looks like fun, huh?!
Value: $39

Royal and Langnickel Revolution Brush Set for Boxycharm- This set has a Detail, Crease and Smudge brush for using with that Smoky palette. These are soft but not that soft. I’m debating whether they’ll be as good as e.l.f. or It Cosmetics. I doubt it.
Value: $24

Starlooks Pro Eyeliner Luxe Longwear Eyeliner Pen- This is my kind of eyeliner. It’s like a marker so you can just draw on your eyeliner. I’m not a pro at applying liner but this type makes it easier. So while the info card says this should be an Ardency Inn eyeliner, I’m glad I got this one.
Value: $19

VERDICT: I loved Boxycharm this month! It’s totally worth the $21 and if I didn’t just get the UD Smoky, I’d be all over that Coastal Scents palette. Instead I’ll pass it on to someone I know will love it. If you sign up now, you’ll get this same box. Although you may get the Ardency Inn liner, who knows. But Boxycharm usually sells their boxes to the last day of the month unless they sell out beforehand. This box is so good I could see that happening.
