It’s BoxyCharm time! After all these years, BoxyCharm has remained my favorite subscription service. It’s $21 per month and always includes full sized items that value over $100 in total. This month, I had heard some mixed reviews on the box, and a lot of people seemed unhappy. One thing to note is that there are some months when BoxyCharm sends out several different variations of the box, and this month was one of them. I actually ended up being fairly happy with mine, but I do think that I got one of the better variations out there.
Also, before we go any further – there’s a GIVEAWAY included at the end of this post. Stay tuned to the end to find out more!
As always, BoxyCharm includes an informational card detailing the products, prices and how to use each one.
Let’s jump into the full review:

This was one of the items that varied in each box. The alternative was an empty Ofra magnetic palette and a single blush to put inside. I’m much happier with this highlight palette than I would have been with the Ofra option. This palette is really beautiful, and is reminiscent of the Kat Von D Alchemist palette in its color selection.
This is certainly not an everyday highlighter palette. The colors are unconventional and fairly pigmented. I did use the pink and yellow/gold colors on my cheeks a few days this week and even those more wearable colors were still very colorful on the face.
Later in the week, I decided to see how they would do on the eyes. I did a neutral eye and topped it with one of the colors in here. I especially love the purple for this use. They are BEAUTIFUL on the eyes. I think I’ll keep using them this way primarily. Once I discovered how much I love using as eyeshadows, I kept reaching for them over and over. They add such a bright pop on the eyes, not to mention the beauty of the dimensional colors. This is a hit, and I do think it’s slightly unfair that not all BoxyCharm customers were able to receive this in their boxes.
The previous Naked Cosmetics palette certainly embodied the Galaxy Glow theme, and following suit, we have the CoverFX Shimmer Veil. This is another beautiful, shiny, glowy product. This is a liquid eyeshadow product (that you could probably also use as a highlighter) that paints onto the lid similar to the Stila liquid eyeshadows. Rather than being filled with glitter, this is a smooth, shimmery application. It also dries down and stays put. I’m personally a huge fan of this and can’t wait to wear it again.
This Seraphine Botanicals lip buffer is quite nice. It has a nice but not overpowering lemon smell and is extremely moisturizing. I enjoy when lip scrubs come in an applicator form like this because it makes it very easy to apply. After using, my lips felt hydrated and smooth. Another win!
I’ve found that BoxyCharm loves to include brush sets in their boxes. As a result, I have quite a large collection from them, including many from Crown. I’ve decided that I will leave these packaged up and give them away since my brush collection is already overflowing. Stay tuned to the bottom of this post for information on how to enter!
At first, I wasn’t too excited to see an eyeliner pencil in the box. I’m not a huge fan of using wood pencils around my eyes since I find that they get rough after sharpening. However, this one really impressed me. It’s very smooth and creamy for a pencil eyeliner. It took no pressure on the skin to get full color payoff. The color stayed on my eyes all day, even in the water line. This may be one of the best pencil eyeliners I have in my collection at the moment!
