Boxycharm January 2015 Unboxing

Since I’m not spending my extra fun money on Memebox anymore I decided to try out some different subscription boxes.  One of the boxes I’ve been wanting to try out is Boxycharm.

Boxycharm is a beauty suprise subscription box that sends 4 full size and 1 luxury sized item each month.  They offer monthly or yearly subscriptions, I wish they did 3 or 6 month ones as that’s more the length I like to commit to, but it doesn’t look like they offer those at this time. I saw 2 spoilers for this box before I ordered and I was excited to see what else I would get.  Let’s see what I got!
First Look
Product Card
Beauty For Real The Perfect a Pencil. Value $14. This lip liner is a special shade that can compliment virtually any color of lipstick.  I don’t see a name on it but the Beauty For Real website calls it “nude”.  I really don’t use lip liner but I do like the color of this one, so I might keep it and give it a try.  
Beauty For Real True Color Lip Cream in Always There.  Value $22. I got this exact lip cream before I think in a trade.  I thought it was really nice that it had an LED light in its lid.  It also has a mirror on the side so you can apply it anywhere. However, it dried my lips out terribly so I ended up pitching it.  I’ll be giving this one away. 

Mirabella Face Prime. Value $29. This was one of the spoilers and I’m excited to try out this face primer. You use this first to make a base for your foundation or BB/CC cream.  This one is a gel like texture and clear in color.  I haven’t tried it yet but I’m curious to see if I like it. 
Pur-lisse Skin Sparkle Flash Tattoos. Value $12. These flash tattoos are popular right now, I just got a set from Popsugar Must Have box. These are jewel-like temporary tattoos. I’m not sure I’ll use these but I do think they are a fun addition to the box. 
Tarte Maracuja Bronzing Serum. Value $47.  This was the second spoiler released so I knew I was getting this. This serum hydrates and evens skin tone along with a gradual self-tanning complex.  I love Tarte and although I’m perfectly happy being my pale self I could use a little color on my face. This does smell like self tanner so I’m not in love with that. I also need to spot test to see how dark this will make me!
I calculate a value of $124 for this box and I only paid $21 for it. I’m very impressed with the value and selection. I won’t use everything in the box but I’m very happy with the ones I will use. I know I can give away or sell the items I don’t want!  I’m excited to see what next month means.
