“Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and its better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.” – Marilyn Monroe
This quote has been one of my favorites for years! I truly believe that there is no such thing as perfection and that everyone has their own beauty, right inside. I love sharing quotes with you that I adore!
Anyway, back to the topic of the post today: Boxycharm! As soon as I see the e-mail that my box has shipped, I do a little happy dance. I may or may not check it everyday to see the update and track when the package will be here.
One of the things I love about this subscription is that they are on point with their products! I was gifted another makeup subscription, not naming names, for Christmas but cancelled it because it just wasn’t up to par with Boxycharm in my opinion.
This month’s box is called Galaxy Glow and we received five full size products. I have used each of them this week and can honestly say I love all of them! There was such an array of products and I can’t wait to break down each products for you.

Ofra Cosmetics – Pop-Up Palette Mini and Blush Godet Refill
So when I saw that we would be getting a mini palette, I was thinking it would be an eye shadow palette but I was wrong! This palette is magnetic and fits a few different refills, anything from eye shadows to highlighters. The best part about this palette is that it opens up and folds over to stand on its own. Score! A single item to go into the palette also came with our box. I got a blush and its a gorgeous color that is highly pigmented so a lot goes a long way on my fair skin. I can’t wait to get more refills for this palette! Blush is $12.00 & palette is $19.00.
CoverFX – Shimmer Veil in Amethyst
This shimmer is to die for! Seriously, I’m obsessed. I know not everyone will feel the same way as me but I just don’t think you can go wrong with some glitter and glow. I wasn’t too sure at first with the color, it is a purple, but it is gorgeous! I have worn it both by itself and over a matte eye shadow and I can’t get enough. I have a feeling I will be buying another color in the near future! $28.88 & free shipping on Amazon.
PUR The Complexion Authority – X-Faux Lips Plumping Lip Exfoliator
Yes, yes and yes! I immediately took this out of the box and used it and my lips felt so nice after. To be completely honest, my lips weren’t any plumper after using it (sorry). But, they were so smooth and the exfoliator really took off the dead skin! I used it one morning after my foundation but before my lipstick, which was on the card in the box, and my lipstick went on so beautifully. I will definitely be using this product often! $17.00 on the PUR website.
Crown Pro – Trip Brush Set
Literally, every brush I have gotten from Crown Pro is amazing. This trio brush set is no different! First, who can resist three white brushes with pink tips? Not me! This set comes with three different sizes and each is made for something different. The large powder brush can be used to set makeup, the medium size brush is perfect for contouring and sculpting and the small brush can be used for highlighting or getting into the small spaces like under the eyes. The brushes are dense but also fluffy and I have been using them in my regular routine! $29.99 on the Crown Pro site.
Vintage Cosmetics – Smokey Eye Pencil in Jet Black
I saved the best for last! This eye pencil is so beautiful and goes on so easily, I have been using it everyday! The black is bold, just the way I like it. One thing I love about this pencil is that you can sharpen it when it starts to get dull. I haven’t used it for a smokey eye yet but I am hoping to try that soon! Grab this for $21.00 on the Vintage Cosmetics site.
If you are someone like me who loves makeup and loves trying new products, you should look into Boxycharm! The products were so good this month, I am already looking forward to next month! Check out my 15-minute everyday makeup routine and last month’s box on the blog!
