March 2019 BoxyLuxe — Unboxing

Hello my dolls!

It got here late but at least I got it! Let’s dive into this box immediately, shall we?

Theme: la vie en rose

I really love the theme and it makes me think of spring a lot! It’s so pink and dreamy and I think the majority of the products fit into the theme.

Watch me unbox this month’s box:

This month we got 10 products instead of 9 so I think maybe the feedback from everyone made them reconsider? Who knows. This box is just getting started so I’m very excited to see how this box grows and improves this year.

As I did with my December BoxyLuxe, I do have a bigger/longer unboxing showcasing all the products and my thoughts on each one.

One more thing before we start: For December we got to choose one product in our box, but I never got an email for this box so I assume they didn’t do that this time around. I actually kind of liked the customization aspect of it, even if it was one product. We’ll see if they bring it back next time or not..

Let’s get started, there’s lots to go over!


Boxycharm Traincase

Retail Price: $20.00 USD

boxycharmmar2019_boxyluxe_boxycharm

Mine was a bit damaged because the paper they put on it to protect it  (ironic right?) kind of got stuck to it in some areas and I also noticed that where it was folded, it suffered a bit of damage that I immediately noticed. While I don’t care much for the damage, can’t really control that, I think the bag itself is cute and spacious enough. I love the holographic look to it and the rose gold color. Will come in handy for travel.


Lilly Lashes
Exclusive Faux Mink Gaia Lashes

Retail Price: $24.99 USD

I almost squealed when I saw these! So many Youtuber beauty vloggers talk endlessly about these or use them a LOT, and I was always interested in trying them. I read the product description and apparently you can wear these up to 20 times so I was stoked to get these!

They look so nice and fluttery which are so my kind of falsies, I just hope they’re not super long to the point where they look WAY unnatural on me because my real lashes are so short and thin and almost non-existent.


Wander Beauty
Lift Off Purifying and Brightening Peel Off Mask

Retail Price: $34.00 USD

boxycharmmar2019_boxyluxe_wanderbeauty

This was one of the products I wasn’t sure of at first but the more I saw it and heard of it from other people, the more intrigued I became. Kathleen Lights got it in her box and from her I learned the mistake of applying a thin layer. So when I eventually I use it, I’ll be sure to lay it on thick! She also experienced redness after using it so if that happens to me too, I know to pass it along to my mom and sis.


Becca
Ultimate Lipstick Love in Petal

Retail Price: $24.00 USD

boxycharmmar2019_boxyluxe_becca

I’ve never tried anything from Becca, so I’m excited to try a lipstick. While I do feel like I see this kind of shade everywhere in almost every sub box, after decluttering a third of my lipsticks, I’m almost positive I don’t have an exact shade like this. It smelled subtly sweet, and not overly obnoxious. I’m excited to try it because apparently it’s moisturizing, silky and long-wearing.


Iconic London
Eyebrow Cushion

Retail Price: $40.00 USD

I wasn’t sure about this product when I saw the spoilers. Right now, eyebrow pencils are really working for me, and I feel like they have been for the past two years or so. A liquid brow doesn’t sound like my kind of thing so I don’t even know if I want to try it. If I try it, I’ll pass it along to my mom or sis and if I keep it unopened, I’ll be able to put it in my giveaway stash.. I’m just unsure about it, that’s all.. I need to do more research on it.


IT Cosmetics
Confidence in a Cream Transforming Moisturizing Super Cream

Retail Price: $48.00 USD

I’m so so stoked to try this cream and after reading the description it sounds amazing! I feel as though I’ve mentioned this time and time again, but I’m so focused on skincare as of lately and always appreciate when products have anti-aging properties because it is NEVER TOO EARLY to start using these kinds of products in our skincare regimen.

boxycharmmar2019_boxyluxe_itcosmetics

Anyway, I tried a small amount in the back of my hand in my video and it felt really smooth and almost silky. It does felt a bit thicker than other moisturizers I’ve used, so I wonder if I will still be able to use this during the summer. If it’s too thick for warmer weather, I will hold off on using it until colder weather arrives.


Deborah Lippmann
O’Donna and Modern Love 2-piece Nail Polish Set

Retail Price: $20.00 USD

As someone who doesn’t get her nails done often, I was really glad to have gotten this set of nail polishes. I love that they are free from harsh chemicals because my nails have become brittle from washing my hands like a hundred times a day. So I’ve taken steps in taking care of my nails so I’m gravitating more towards these kinds of polishes.

boxycharmmar2019_boxyluxe_deborahlippmann.jpg

I cannot wait to try them, I hope I like them! I like that they’re mauvey-pinky kind of shades. I hope to like the shimmery/glittery one, because I tend to go for solid colors more often. I know, I’m so boring!


Moda Brushes
Powder and Soft Glow Kit

Retail Price: $29.99 USD

I LOVE getting brushes!! So yes, so happy that they decided to add more brushes in their BoxyLuxe. I always assumed that these were more in the cheaper side, but the price is a bit higher than I initially imagined. And for good reason, they’re so soft and feel like good quality brushes! Of course that’s yet to be seen when I start washing them..

boxycharmmar2019_boxyluxe_moda

I used to hate getting face brushes but now I love them and use them literally all the time! I think the powder brush will be great for blush, I like big fluffy brushes for that. The soft glow might be great for highlighting.


CoverFX
Perfector Face Palette in Light – Medium

Retail Price: $45.00 USD

Another product I wasn’t sure about when I saw the spoilers. And that’s because I don’t reach for face palettes as often as I’d like to. I just have my favorite blushes and highlighters as singles and I tend to forget that I even have those palettes. I think travel-wise, I would rather take two small things than one big thing that I may only use two things out of? Does that make sense?

boxycharmmar2019_boxyluxe_coverfx

Anyway, aside from not knowing whether I want to keep this or save for a giveaway, I do think that the palette looks pretty. I may use most of it, except maybe the finishing powder because it looks like it has micro glitter and I’m not sure I like that FOR a finishing powder. I also probably wouldn’t use the blush because pink shades are just not for me, I prefer peachy ones.


Morphe
15-Shade Artistry Palette in Day Slayer

Retail Price: $16.00 USD

The one you have all been waiting for! Probably? Maybe not, if you’re not subbed to Boxycharm. But to those who saw the spoilers know there were four palettes. I got the Day Slayer, and while it wasn’t my first choice, I’m GLAD I got this one instead.

It’s a neutral palette and I know some people don’t like them much anymore, but I think for me, this is a good palette to try from Morphe. I’ve always wanted to try one of their palettes, but I wanted a full matte palette and after asking several people how good their mattes were, almost every single person said, they kind of sucked!

boxycharmmar2019_boxyluxe_morphe.jpg

I think what Morphe has going for them is their shimmers. Those seem to be loved more than their mattes. So yes, a neutral, everyday palette is the perfect one for me to try from them. I can use it daily to test and I won’t have to try to come up with creative looks. I can just do my makeup the way I normally do. If I do run into some problems with it, maybe I’ll experiment with new techniques and see if that works better.


I’m quite happy with pretty much all the products. I do have to think about whether I’m keeping the eyebrow cushion and the face palette. But other than those two, I know I might end up liking the rest of them. Hopefully the Morphe palette is good.

The total value of this box was $301.98 which was a bit less than December’s box. I think the reason for that is that the palette we got last box was about $40 whereas this one was $16, among a lot of other products exceeding $30 for a full size.

I am still very excited to see what Boxycharm is planning for June. It should be interesting to see whether the boxes get better or worse, higher or lower overall value, and my satisfaction with each box as well as each product.

  2. I am obsessed with that Boxycharm Traincase! And I don’t usually get THIS excited over things like this, lol– that holographic look is everything. So crazy all that paper damaged it though! Hopefully it will relax a bit into a normal shape soon.

    1. Lol dont worry, when I read that I assumed you meant subscription boxes for some reason so I was off haha but yeah girl! Usually i never think to buy makeup case because they’re all so plain or a bit too much. But this one is just right. 😁

  3. I think this box is amazing.
    Sorry to hear the beauty case was damaged. But I hope it’s not too bad because it looks gorgeous!
    I also love the lippie, the moisturiser, the brushes… everything really!
    The nail colours aren’t boring. I used to hate shades like those (no matter if the shades were creamy, metallic, shimmer, holo, etc). But now I like nude-ish nail colours because they’re great as a base for stamping.

    1. I think so too. And the damage wasn’t too bad but it is noticeable because of the color of it lol. I dont mind.
      I meant I’m boring in the sense that I don’t do anything fun with my nails. I mean seeing how creative you get with your manis, I wish I could do something like that lol. I just dont think I have the time for it unfortunately:(

      1. Thank you so much! xo

        But YOU are one of the most creative and talented people I know! Your makeup skills are unbelievable, and your Super Mario decorations (which I’d try to buy off of you if I lived anywhere near you) looked like shop bought. I love how you beautify your diary. I can’t draw at all – and if stamping plates and nail foils didn’t exist, I wouldn’t be able to do anything with my nails. 😝
        But yeah, we all have our talents and there’s always something we wish we could do better.

  4. I loved the theme this month, too. It was so cute. ♡ That’s awesome that there were 10 products this month & hopefully they will bring back the customization option in the future!

    That’s terrible that the paper damaged the traincase. I watched that in your unboxing & you were so calm about it lol I would’ve been upset as all heck even though it doesn’t look bad at all. It’s a great size, too!

    I’ve read a few reviews on the Wander mask, they’re all so mixed. I think I’ll be giving it away. I don’t really like peel-offs & def don’t want to risk experiencing any redness.

    The Becca lipstick is so pretty. I love how it clasped magnetically & the shade is gorg!! I’d be most excited for that moisturizer though. Cannot wait to read your thoughts on it when you use it! & on the nail polishes, too! Are they minis or full-sized? They looked so small in your video!!

    & I think I already told you, but that face palette is the worst. 😭 The shades were nice for my skintone but oh my gosh. It applied so patchy & left me looking bumpy & texturized at places where I’m not even?!

    I think you got the perfect Morphe palette for you. Those colors are going to look amazing on you!!

    I am so looking forward to seeing what they include in June’s box!!

    1. I hope so! I really liked getting to pick at least ONE product, I think that makes it a bit more customizable.
      LOL oh my gosh thank you! I tend to get upset about things like that too every once in a while but I guess I was just in that whatever mood that it didn’t bother me.. Oh wait, now that I think about it, I filmed three videos that day, this was the last one. In one of my other videos (today’s post and video) I went over some empties and one of them was my CBD vape pen and I smoked some because I replaced it.. Maybe that’s why?? LMAO but yeah! I agree! Great size!
      Yeah same! I haven’t opened it either to find out. Though I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t intrigued. I’ll see, I’m still thinking about this and the face palette and brow cushion.. Just can’t make up my mind quick enough LOL.
      I’m SOOOO excited about the moisturizer as well! That’s my number one fave in this box. And I’m not sure? They’re much smaller than other polishes, so I think they might be? It didn’t say if they were minis, but now that you mention it, I assume they are?
      Yeah you briefly told me. Which is another reason I’m still like, idk if I should even try it! Ugh you know what? You’ve convinced me. I’m giving it away. I should really try to do my giveaway soon. It’s nearly a year overdue 😦 LOL I didn’t even mean for that to happen but I also have to save up some more money after spending a bunch to get a few other products for it.
      OMG I think so too! Peachy, oranges and neutrals! Though some find them boring I think this palette will be really nice for the summer. I hope that the mattes are not as bad as I have been told they are lol.
      I cannot wait to see June’s box! And next month already looks great too! I decided fuck it, let;s look at the spoilers LMAO

  5. Oh my gosh, you can wear those falsies up to 20 times?! That’s amazing!! I’ve only ever heard of ones that are just a one-time use lol. Of course I also don’t shop for them, but 20 times sounds like freaking magic haha.

    Liked by 1 person

    1. How cool is that??! I love it! I know the one-time use are so troublesome and kind of wasteful. I still want to try the magnetic ones because you can re-use those for life lol but the thought of not being able to take them off can be scary but i still want to attempt lol

      Liked by 1 person

      1. Totally agree, those one-time use ones are wasteful! Ooh I’ve seen those magnetic lashes. I feel like they are probably one of the best options but they also seem hard to get just right. I hope you blog about them if you do try them!!

        1. I had seen a few beauty guru’s try, one liked them, another didn’t care for them, but i do want to try them sometime. I’ll have to wait a little longer because i just bought a bunch of stuff.. i need to chill LOL

          1. Hahaha I totally get that!! I’ve had to buy a bunch of stuff for moving and now we are struggling a little to pay off our credit card, so I’m avoiding buying anything else for awhile. O.O
