March Boxycharm Review: “Baecation”

“I’m addicted to buying makeup and not rich enough to have this problem.” – Pinterest user

Raise your hand if you can just never have too much makeup! I’m personally raising both of my hands.

Makeup is something I have been into for as long as I can remember and I do a full face almost every morning before leaving the house. Yes, I am one of those people.

Each month when that e-mail pops into my inbox to tell me that my Boxycharm is on its way, I do a little happy dance. I then track the package at least once a day until it shows up at my front door. It’s a problem.

One of my favorite parts of this subscription is that I have been able to try out brands that I have never even heard of before! This month’s box was a hit, except for one thing, which I will break down for you. I will also give you links to purchase the products if you don’t get the box!

I did just see on their website this weekend that the waiting list is open so if you have been contemplating signing up, now is the time! Okay, on to the products!

I don't do all of the contouring and fancy stuff, but there are days that I think I'm just going to do the bare minimum, then end up doing fancy eyes that take forever or something that just takes more time than I probably have.

Pur The Complexion Authority: Eyeshadow Palette

I can’t even tell you how much stronger my eyeshadow palette game is since I started getting Boxycharm! This month, we got a new palette with 12 shades that are a mix of matte colors and gorgeous shimmers. You have to check out the vibrant blue that is thrown in there! The colors are not as pigmented as I normally like so I have had to use a little more product that I usually do but the shades are so pretty together or separate. There is quite a bit of fallout too so I make sure I tap the excess off before applying. This one is definitely going in my normal rotation!

Butter London: Double Decker Lashes Mascara

This mascara is a must-have! Seriously, you have to try this product. I personally like a more dramatic look when it comes to my eyelashes and this mascara does not disappoint. One thing that really sealed the deal for me on this mascara is that I only need about 2 or 3 coats to achieve the desired look! With other mascaras I have used, I had to really pack on the product which means I don’t tend to get as much use out of the tubes as I could. Use only one coat of this mascara if you like a more natural look!

South Mane Beauty – Under Eye Gels

Unfortunately, these under eye gels were not a hit for me! If you have read some of my other articles in the beauty section, I often talk about how sensitive my skin is and how easily it is irritated. I tried one pack of these the day after my box came and within 3 minutes, my skin was burning. Not pretty! I was nice and red where the gels were for the next day. If you have sensitive skin like I do, you may want to be careful if you grab a pack of these!

The Vintage Cosmetic Company – Smokey Eye Makeup Brush Set

I LOVE these brushes! Like, I love them. I have never been very good at a smokey eye so I don’t usually try the look but I have been using this set for an everyday look and it is perfect. The brushes are dense and ideal for packing on the shades which I am definitely a fan of!

Pretty Vulgar – Make Them Blush in Hush Blush

Okay, so when I saw this blush I was a little nervous. The color is so much deeper than I typically use because of how fair my skin is. But, it is so pretty! I have to go very light with my hand because if it is too heavy, I look like a clown. I know, from experience. The color is perfect over bronzer and I honestly use it everyday!
