While last month’s boxycharm was all about the wild flowers, this time around the box is all about products that will help you to unleash your Alter Ego which is the theme for October.
This Alter Ego can also be considered as Boxycharm’s Halloween box as the theme is not too far fetched from that. The card featured a dark and smoky design to reflect the spooky month of October.
Boxycharm is a monthly beauty subscription box that features 5 to 6 full size products.
Cost – $21 monthly with free shipping
The combined total of the beauty products in this month’s is $134.
The products included in this month’s box are:
IT Cosmetics – Superhero Elastic Stretch Volumizing Mascara
First off, I love the hourglass design of this mascara. It makes for easy grip and application. It’s jumbo size reminds me of Butter London’s Double Decker Mascara.
The length of the wand makes it even more functional with a curved bristle to help coat the hard to get areas like the inner and outer parts of the eyelashes.
From the first coat I knew that every person who struggles to find a good mascara deserves. This mascara not only make your lashes fuller but it lengthens as well.
After wearing for a few hours I did notice that it caused a little clumping and flaking which wasn’t terrible in my opinion as I’ve had worse mascara.
This mascara retails for $24
Dermovia – Lace A Peel Black Bamboo Charcoal Peel Off Mask
This mask is definitely different from other facial masks that I have used in the past and for that I do give this product a 100% for uniqueness.
In the package were two lace masks along with the charcoal mask that you apply to the lace mask.
The mask comes with cut out sections for you to wrap around your ears so that your mask stays on.
One thing to keep in mind is that the mask dries a little bit too quickly so you have to work fast. It does a very good job though of cleaning the face. As far as the scent of the mask, it was a bit too strong at first but then disappeared after some time.
You also have to be very careful when removing mask as it can hurt a little bit. That was the only thing that I didn’t really like but other than that I though it got the job done.
This mask retails for $30
Pur The Complexion Authority – Midnight Masquerade Palette
This palette will be great for creating fun and mysterious looks. The face palette is broken down into eyeshadows and blushes but what I love is the flexibility that the palette offers.
There are four shimmer eyeshadow shades and two matte shades.
The bigger shades are considered blushes but they can actually be used for bronzer and highlighter as well. Enchantment is a great bronzing color and Twilight is perfect as a highlighter color. It all depends on the look that you are trying to create.
This palette retails for $38
Kat Von D – Everlasting Liquid Lipstick
Kat Von D’s Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks are definitely not a new lippie to my collection. However, the shade Vampira is! Her formula is so amazing and long lasting that I was most excited about getting this product in my box.
The Vampira shade also couldn’t be more perfect for October to create moody, vampire-like makeup looks.
One thing about this shade that I did notice was that it took a bit longer to dry and if you put your lips together before it dries then it can leave it looking patchy.
Other than that it’s a very pigmented and statement making color.
The color is described as a deep reddish burgundy but it swatched almost like a brown copper red on me which I definitely loved.
This Everlasting Liquid Lipstick retails for $20
Farmacy beauty – Green Clean
After all the festivities, there is no better feeling than sitting down and taking the day off. Even though applying makeup is fun and therapeutic for some of us, at the end of the day we just want to take it all off and go to bed.
In October’s box we received a mint green citrus scented makeup remover from Farmacy Beauty that was made exclusively for Boxycharm and this remover literally just melts your makeup away.
It doesn’t require water but it’s optional so all you have to do is just get a little on your finger tips and rub it on your face and watch it just melts away your makeup including stubborn lipstick and mascara.
Some facial cleansers and makeup removers tend to clean your face to the point where it strips your face of all it’s natural oils leaving it feeling stiff and dry but this balm does everything but that. It gently cleanses without stripping and leaves your face feeling soft and hydrated.
This cleansing balm retails for $22.
