Down to the wire with this post, huh. Better later than never tho, am I right!? So the May BOXYCHARM theme was dubbed ‘Makeup is Art’ and I could see where they were going with it. Read on to get my thoughts on this month’s box.
The BrowGal Convertible Brow (full size – $35) If I already didn’t have my holy grail brow pencil, I think I would like this a lot. This brow palette comes equipped a warm, neutral and ash shade to custom make the perfect shade, if necessary. Apparently it can be used as a powder or pomade which is pretty cool.
The BrowGal Brow Brush (full size – $14) Like a standard brow brush this one is double ended with a spooly on one side and a precision one on the other. I probably won’t use this for my brows but may use the brush side to apply gel liner.
Crown Pro Round Contour Brush (full size – $24.99) Guh, this brush is super soft! I’ve been wanting to try a paddle brush so I was really excited to get this in our box. While it’s called a contour brush I’ve used for concealer application and liked the end result.
IBY Beauty Highlight & Contour Palette (full size – $40) I really wanted to love this product and was expecting more but it was a bit of a disappointment. Not completely tho. The bronzers are amazing! I could just about every shade, which is a plus, but what I love most is that they don’t come packed with glitter. They are matte which is a major win. The highlighters however are lackluster, to say the least. They don’t illuminate enough and are far too powdery for my liking. I tend to like creamier highlighters.
Temptu Liquid Glow (full size – $29.50) So I was ready not to like this product but I was pleasantly surprised. This liquid highlight was a collaboration between Temptu and BOXYCHARM. Leaves a ‘light from within’ affect this will probably be my new go-to, especially for summer!
Total box value: $143.49
Overall, I really like the May box. Other than The BrowGal palette, I’m going to be using all the items frequently. May even invest in the liquid glow highlighter down the road, that’s how great it is!
