I’ve been working hard on this post, not just because I was excited to show you, but because I have also filmed a video unboxing this month’s box!
I unbox the goodies, try a few on, and show you guys some swatches on the video. I time-stamped those sections on the description if you’d like to jump around the video. If you don’t want to watch this video just keep scrolling, but there will be no swatches on this post.
Watch me unbox my April 2018 Boxycharm:
Theme: Eye Candy
I didn’t feel like all the products reflected the theme well, except for the palette of course, that’s the only thing I thought of as “eye candy”.
- Dr. Brandt Pores No More Vaccum Cleaner
- The Brow Gal The Instatint: Tinted Eyebrow Gel
- Jelly Pong Pong All Over Glow
- MAC Liptensity Lipstick in Doe
- Colourpop Element of Surprise Eyeshadow Palette
All of these brands I’ve heard of, except for the Brow Gal. Dr. Brandt was a brand I was introduced to through Boxycharm and it’s pretty good. Always great to have more skincare.
I have gotten an eyeshadow from Jelly Pong Pong in one of my Ipsy bags last year and it was good quality so I hope the same is true for this luminizer. I’ve never tried MAC products because it’s technically not CF (they sell in China), but this is a pretty good opportunity to try their infamous lipsticks.
In terms of the eyeshadow palette I received, I think it’s very pretty and I like that there’s a good balance between metallics/shimmers, mattes, and duochrome shades. There’s also a few transition shades and those are usually important to me when I get palettes.
What did you guys get this month?
Are you happy with the palette you have received?
