April 2018 Boxycharm: “Eye Candy”

“Admire someone else’s beauty without questioning your own.”

It’s FINALLY April! Time for blue skies, warmer weather and pretty flowers.

Or, if you live in NJ like me, April is a month of clouds, 46 degrees one day, 87 the next and tons of wind.

Are you someone who switches up their makeup looks when the seasons change? I totally am.

I tend to use the same foundation and bronzer/blush combo no matter what day or month it is but I use different colors on my eyes and lips. Yep, I take my makeup very seriously.

In the Spring, I switch from bolder looks and darker colors to a more feminine style. I am drawn to lots of pinks and cream colors for my eyes and pink or taupe colors for my lips. Sometimes in the Spring I even find myself going bare on my lips and completely focusing on my eyes. Like I said, I’m serious.

This month’s Boxycharm was SO good! Like, so good. The products were perfect for the change of season!

I mean, if I’m honest, there hasn’t been a box yet that I didn’t like. There have been two or three products that didn’t really work for me or that I don’t use but overall, I’m obsessed.

I’m so excited to break down these products for you and tell you my impression of each little beauty in the box!

MAC Cosmetics – Liptensity Lipstick in Burnt Violet

MAC Liptensity Lipstick Intense Color Gel Formula Burnt Violet

Long lasting? Check. Smooth application and wear? Check. Gorgeous color? Check. Yup, this one is pretty much everything I look for in a good lipstick! This product literally stayed on my lips for hours and I didn’t have to reapply in order to keep the look, which is amazing. The color is a little more bold then I use on an everyday basis but I will absolutely be using this lipstick for a special occasion or different makeup look!

ColourPop – Element of Surprise Eyeshadow Palette

ColourPop - Pressed Powder Shadow Palette - Element of Surprise

Okay, so I have seriously used this palette everyday since it came in the mail. The colors are so pretty and versatile, I’m in love. The formula is smooth and pigmented which I of course love. I haven’t used the pink color but I can’t wait to try it out! This is a must-have!

Dr. Brandt – Pores No More Vacuum Cleaner

If you have never tried Dr. Brandt, you have to. Now. I have very sensitive skin and have had no issues with any of the products. That… is a miracle. This product is perfect for unclogging your pores and reducing the excess oil from your face. Let me tell you it’s so great! My face felt so clean and smooth after just the first time using it. If your face needs a little pick me up and your pores need some loving, grab one of these babies!

The Browgal – Instant Tinted Eyebrow Gel

The BrowGal Instatint Tinted Brow Gel with Microfibers - Brown Hair

Full disclosure here: I am horrible at doing my eyebrows. Horrible. I have tried so many times and with so many different products and I can’t seem to make them look normal. This tinted eyebrow gel is very easy to use and my eyebrows weren’t as bad as usual! Yay! If you are a novice eyebrow filer, I would definitely try out this gel. Use a light hand and you will be good to go. If I can do it, so can you!

SL Miss Glam – Brush Duo

A pink eyeshadow brush and a purple blending brush? Sign me up. These brushes are so pretty and so fluffy. I have been using the blending brush everyday and I am hooked. Unfortunately, they are sold out right now. Womp womp. These beauties will be staying in my everyday routine for sure!

Oh Boxycharm. You just make my month complete!

Have you used any of the products that were in the box this month? I would love to hear some of your favs! XOXO
