Happy Saturday! I hope everyone’s weekend is off to a great start. Today we’re taking a look at the October BoxyCharm, featuring some very exciting brands and products.
The theme of this month’s box is Spellbound – perfect for the month of October.
Let’s take a look at what’s inside!

This Shimmering Skin Perfector from Becca is one of the most exciting items in the box! It is a full sized version of the color Prosecco Pop, which was originally a collab with beauty guru Jaclyn Hill. I was a little worried that this would be too dark on my skin, but I used a light hand and it worked out great. This is absolutely the kind of highlighter that sparkles and glows with little effort. If you’re looking for that high shine highlighted look, especially if you have a darker skin tone, this is perfect.
This lip pencil is a nice brown shade, but I decided I would put this aside rather than give it a try myself. I’m very picky about lip products and like things on the lighter side. Regardless, a neutral lip pencil like this is a nice staple to have in your collection.
I was even more excited for this PoreDermabrasion than I was for the Becca highlighter! We received the MicroDermabrasion from Dr. Brand a few months ago in another BoxyCharm and it was instantly a favorite for me. This one is extremely similar and provides a thorough, deep exfoliation. I’m quite excited to have another full size container of a product like this that I know I will use up.
Similar to the lip pencil above, I decided not to play around with this lip color and save it for a giveaway. The color looks a little too dark for me, and I haven’t loved this matte lip formula in the past. Still, it’s great to see another well known brand like Tarte represented in the box.
Of all the things in this box, I think this may be my least favorite. It’s a nail kit with a file, scissors, clippers and various other mini tools you might need for a manicure. However, I have so many little tools like this in my house, and this honestly feels a little on the cheap side.
However, if you don’t already have this type of a tool kit in your collection already, I can see this being nice for travel. It’s compact and has a little of everything.
Overall, there were some misses in this box – but the Becca highlighter and the Dr. Brandt PoreDermabrasion were such huge hits that I can overlook the rest. Also, the two lip products I mentioned are going to be in a giveaway NEXT WEEK – so check back for that!
