Boxycharm October 2018

Hello, internet! I’m actually posting about a subscription box in the same month I received it! Go, me!

I really like the Boxycharm subscription as it is only $21 a month and includes enough full size products that total up usually way more than that.  Having said that, I have canceled the box.  I really liked this month’s box but I am trying to be less materialistic and let go of some of the over consuming of these boxes.  It really just comes down to I love getting new stuff in the mail but I have noticed that these items don’t bring me as much joy as they once did.  In this thing called adult hood (yuck) I have tried to focus more on the things I truly love and spend my money a little more wisely.  Maybe that will change in the future, but as of now, I don’t want anymore samples or lipsticks that I will probably never use.

So, moving on to the box. I’m trying a new format for these posts so we will see how it works.

  1. IT Cosmetics Superhero Elastic Stretch Mascara– This was actually the whole reason for keeping this month’s subscription.  This mascara was my favorite a few years ago then I tried other mascaras and kind of forgot about it.  It’s around $24 usually so I was really excited it was one of the items in the box.  Word of caution…it can be a little clumpy but for the most part it is easy to work with.

2. Dermovia Lace A Peel Black Bamboo Charcoal Mask, set of 2– So normally I enjoy trying new face masks.  I have watched two of my favorite YouTubers try these masks and they seem a little intense for my sensitive skin.  I will probably save these as a stocking stuffer for my sister.  But, Amazon lists them for $55 for 5 so these value around $22 for 2.

3. Pharmacy Green Clean Makeup Meltaway Cleanser– This was the second item I was most excited to try.  I am also using a moisturizer and eye cream from this brand that I received in a previous FabFitFun so I am anxious to try more products from this brand.  I have been using the Clinique Cleansing balm but once I am out of that, I will reach for this.  I do like the brand’s vibe of healthier, cleaner products.  The balm is valued at around $32.

4. Kat von D Liquid Everlasting Lipstick in Mother– $18, Not a huge fan usually of liquid lipsticks but I am working on stepping out of my comfort zone.  It is a pretty mauve, berry color that should go well in the fall.

5. PUR Cosmetics Boxycharm exclusive, Face and Eyeshadow palette– Ok, so, let’s be real…I need another eyeshadow palette like I need…another eyeshadow palette.  Like, really?  This is part of the reason I stopped subscribing.  We got some sort of palette last month and the month before that.  They are pretty but I just don’t get excited about it so I will probably pass it along.

I think there are some variations of this box but these are just the products I received.  Thanks for reading!
