April Boxycharm Verdict

These were taken on three different days…I have more than one hoodie guys! This is the one I only wear at home since it’s always freezing.

Just a heads up that I did not test out the Adesse liquid lipstick. The shade is similar to the Nyx Lip Lingerie (which is what I used in the photos). And I have a habit of finishing a product before opening another one that’s similar to it.

 

The Browgal Microfiber Gel

I tried the “brow mascara” on its own in the first photo. It went on smoothly, but personally, I like a sharper look for my brows. So in the second and third photos, I defined my brows with the Beauty Treats gel and filled them in with the Browgal. The microfibers do make my brows looks denser than if I only used a product with pigment.

 

Tarte Liquid Highlighter

I got the shade Exposed, which is a very wearable gold. Consistency is on the thicker end while still being blendable and buildable. It gives a pretty, natural glow on its own. And it does layer well under a powder highlight if you want a more blinding look.

 

Dr Brandt Pores no More

I used this mask two times already on the nose and forehead. It leaves my skin feeling smooth, but hasn’t really reduced the visible size of my pores yet. I was surprised to find that 30 mls of this product retails for $47! Let me know if you want me to continue using this regularly to find out if it’s worth the price.

 

Colourpop Golden State of Mind

This is the first Colourpop product I’ve ever used and I’m very happy with it. I love shimmers and these swatch and apply well without a ton of fallout.

I tried priming with both a cheaper primer and a more expensive concealer. They grip on and wear nicely either way. They are more buildable instead of “Bam! Pigment in your face!”.

They do get a little powdery in the palette, but not on the skin.

 

Anyways, I’m quite happy with Boxycharm this month. It’s not too late to order if you believe you’ll enjoy any of these products. A friend and her past roomate ordered after seeing my InstaStory :p (I’m not affiliated)

 

One observation I have is that there seems to be quite a few eyeshadow palettes in the boxes. I’ve been keeping an eye on Boxycharm the past few months and there has been a palette for November 2017, January 2018, March 2018, and now April 2018. If this is their usual pattern, it’ll be safe to assume there’s a palette every two months or so. This is not a bad thing if you’re a palette fanatic, but personally, I don’t particularly want a new palette that often. Then again, you can always skip the month if you’ve seen the spoilers and they’re a hard pass.

 

Hugs and kisses
