Unboxing — January 2019 Boxycharm

Heyy dolls!

Today I’m unboxing my Boxycharm, the first box of the year! Was it a hit or a flop?!

I was excited because for the first time ever I checked the spoilers to see what we would be getting. The theme for the first box of 2019 is Boxy & Chill, which I thought was cute.

Let’s see what I got!


Contents:

  • Briogeo Don’t Despair, Repair! Strength + Moisture Leave-In Mask
  • Tarte Limited Edition Rainforest of the Sea Highlighting Palette Vol. III
  • Starlooks Luxe Longwear Eye Pencil
  • Tatcha Luminous Dewy Skin Face Mask (2 Pack)
  • Bite Amuse Bouche in Dragonfruit

First Impressions:

I’m on the fence about this box, to be honest. Let me tell you why..

1. I love the Briogeo leave-in mask, so while I’m stoked to have a bigger size, I can do without it, no big deal.

2. I have too many eye pencils, so I will be giving away the Starlooks eye pencil or putting it on my giveaway stash. I have no need for an extra one..

3. The Bite Beauty lippie is a fantastic formula, but when I swatched it, I realized I may not use that shade as much. It’s always a bummer when you get sent a product from a new-ish brand to you, and you get a shade that you may not wear because then the product kind of goes to waste? Now that I’ve swatched it, I may have to give it a shot. Maybe once I wear it, I’ll change my mind about it? But I do wish I could have gotten a different one, despite how beautiful this one is.

4. The product(s) I was most excited about were the Tatcha masks because that brand is EXPENSIVE! I hope I like them, no complaints about these at all.

5. Lastly, the Tarte palette. At first I was like, “too many shimmers, not enough mattes..” Then I said, “so neutral, I have many palettes like this..” I honestly wasn’t sure if I was going to keep it, but I didn’t know it was limited edition.. So yes, now I’m keeping it. I will give the formula a try and see how I like it. I hope the formula makes me change my mind about this palette as a whole.


I don’t mean to complain so much about this box, I’m sure they’re working on better boxes for the future, but not every box will be a hit. It did fall a little short for me, but I’m hoping once I try the products I can take back my words lmao.

What did you guys get?

  1. How fantastic that you got a limited edition palette!! Even if it is all shimmers and neutrals lol. 😉 I hope you can get a lot of use out of it still and enjoy it. 🙂 Those leave-in masks sound really nice!

  2. What shade was your eye pencil in? Good idea to give it away lol thing’s a piece of crap anyways. 😛

    We got the same lippie with the same issue. I looked up the dragonfruit shade though & I’d totally prefer that over the butthole one I got lol. I think it will look beautiful on you!

    We got the same palette, too! Looking forward to hearing your thoughts on everything after you use it all.

    1. I have no idea, if it’s the quotation marks, then Aurora. I haven’t taken the seal off just in case I give it away. LOL. Which one dod you get? I’m about to write up a post for tomorrow before I keep reading 🙂
      That’s so neat!! 😀 I want to see the lippie you’re talking about, now I’m curious as to what the shade looks like!
      I swatched it and……Idk…. I know swatches are not the same as applying them on the eyes, but still. I wasn’t as excited or impressed based on swatches alone, as pretty as the shades are lol.

      1. I think mine is Aurora too… I just assumed that was the shade name… not completely sure though! LOL. 😛

        I only showed my lips in my post but I looked even worse when you could see my whole face with it lol. I am not impressed with the eyeshadow palette either. All the shades look even more the same on your eyelids!!
