Boxycharm - January 2015

Boxycharm is a monthly subscription that costs $21/month. They have monthly themes and send items based on those themes. I've seen boxes average 4-5 items, but some have more items. All of the boxes in a month are usually the same (shades may vary), which is good for spoilers. You also have the entire month to sign up and still be eligible to get that month's box. Shipping does take some time, though. They post that they have 5-10 business days to send you box out. 

They have a referral program also that earns you charms. Other ways to earn charms includes reviewing items you receive each month as well as bonus charms for taking a box three months in a row. The charms can be redeemed towards month-specific items which will be sent in your next month's box! (If you use my referral, my email is k.boatwright1@gmail.com and I can also send you the referral code if you need it.) This box came fairly quickly, took less than a week from ship date to arrival, but the actual email took a while to show up.

First look.


tarte Maracuja Bronzing Serum ($47.00) - This was probably the most disappointing product in the box. Boxycharm came out and said that this bronzing serum wouldn't darken your skin as much as it added a glow to it...WRONG. I put a drop on my wrist and on my husband's hand and both of us had dark spots on us for a while. Mine was much darker because of how pale I am, but it's not worth it if you don't want serious color change. 

Pur-lisse Skin Sparkle Flash Tattoos ($12.00) - These were really popular last year, but everything that I've read so far has said these are on their way out. I won't be wearing any of these because of how big/long they are...they are too big for my fingers or wrists. 


Beauty for Real True Color Lip Cream (Always There) ($22.00) - This has a light in it and has a mirror on it, so you never have to worry about not having those! It's also a really great color, but doesn't last as soon as some of my other lip products do. It's also a little on the sticky side, so don't use too much!

Mirabella Face Prime ($29.00) - I liked this primer and love that it's a full size. It's great for keeping with my daily products and it should last for a while. It did an amazing job keeping makeup on for quite some time.

Beauty for Real The Perfect Pencil ($14.00) - This really is a great shade of pink. It could easily match multiple lip colors and it looks great if you use it to fill in as well (I tried and won with it). Highly suggest trying!


This month's box is worth $124, which is utterly amazing. I loved everything in the second picture, and the first will be useful for some swaps. Did you get Boxycharm this month? Let me know what you thought of it in the comments!
