Subscription Satelite: BoxyCharm November 2020

Hello to all of you beautiful nerds and welcome back from traveling the vast nerd universe. Before I start, I would like to apologize for my short absence. I have been busy with studying for a test and also became ill during last week so I couldn’t do the Review Round Up for the last two months. I also lost the panda bear USB drive with all my posts so far and might find it when the move takes place this week. I am sorry so I will be doing this post to make it up to you guys.

BoxyCharm November 2020

Today, I received my first box of the month and it happened to be my BoxyCharm. Usually this would come after my No Make No Life and GB Plus, but the order switched. I did find my email about this box being shipped but glad to get it while being at my current place. This costs $25 a month and you get five full-size items every month ranging from prestige through luxury. Also, you get to choose an item and this month for December’s choice they switched it up to make everyone choose on the same day and glad that happened because it was nerve racking to see everyone else getting to choose. I did choose something pretty nice for December but won’t spoil. Let’s see what I got this month since I was a able to use Convenient OCR on my post card this time and to tell you the truth it works better on this since no weird characters show up when JAWS reads it.

Natasha Denona Peek Pallet: First up is something from Natasha Denona. I heard of this brand so much from so many people on YouTube and What’s Up in MakeUp and how people debated in purchasing this brand because they are super pricey. Pricier than Mac even. I did remember trying a shadow from this brand through the Allure box a year ago when I was still subscribed and thought it was okay, nothing too earth shattering nor super nova about it. When I saw this on my list of items I was surprised and let’s see what it says. This is a five-pan pallet featuring some of the best formulated shadows within the neutral range. This features creamy and metallic shades from some of her iconic pallets and to tell you the truth I never purchased since I am more of an Urban Decay meets NYX type person when it comes to makeup with a mix of Mac. I will try this out though since single shadows may be different from the smaller pallets but who knows how it will go. I am taking a break from eye products because I ended up with a Sty and Blepharitis last week. Plus, I did have to pack my makeup brushes from my vanity. The MSRP though is $48. Let’s see if it’s worth it since I can get the Dose of Dollars pallets lower than that.

Peach & Lily Power Calm Gel Cleanser: Next up is a product from Peach & Lily. I have heard of these guys and they are sold at Ulta. This is a gentle and sulfate-free cleanser that helps keeping the skin intact. I have to see how this goes since I do enjoy gentle cleansers and since it does get colder here on the coast during the winter this would be perfect! Plus, it also helps with hydration which is a key for me! This retails for $28.

Milk Kush Waterproof Mascara: Next is the item I chose for November and have to wait to use because it’s a mascara and it is a favorite amongst many people on YouTube and that is the Koosh Mascara from Milk MakeUp. I heard of this mascara and was a little curious about it and when I saw it as a choice, I had to get it! This is an intense mascara that has heart shaped fibers, and it is infused with cannabis oil which is supposed to be good for you. I will have to see how well it works with my lashes since I have tried hemp seed oil lotion and that helped my skin so far.  This mascara retails for $24.

Yensa Beauty Pumpkin Turmeric Two in One Polishing Mask: Next is a product by my favorite former villainous from Light Speed Rescue, Jennifer Yen, and that is from her brand Yensa. This is a two-in-one polishing mask that is infused with orange ingredients that help with hydrating and soothes the skin and of course polishes it within five to ten minutes. I can’t wait to use this since I do love using masks while shaving my legs to give some time to work. I do love pumpkin and will see how it goes. This retails for $45.

Alamar Eye Primero Sticky Base Primer: Final item is from Alamar and it’s the eye primer. This is a water-based primer, and it helps shadows stand out. It is also water and wear resistance and it’s made with shea butter. I know I am on break from wearing shadows and other eye items, but I can’t wait to wear this. I think the eye base I was using lately was probably a factor for my Sty or my other eye irritation so who knows. Hoping this doesn’t cause any issues for my shadows. This retails for $15.

That completes this box! I like it this month because it has a nice balance between makeup and skin care, and I like that in a box. I will have to see how the mask works since I rarely use wash off masks and I enjoyed the green tea ones from Purlisse, which is Jen’s other brand. Trying out Peach & Lily will be a nice first and glad to get another eye primer, shadow pallet, and mascara but have to wait until my eyes calm down from going through what they had. I can’t wait for my other boxes. I think my Ipsy and GB Plus will be a little late since I didn’t get my new address until last week but I did add it to my No Make No Life so hoping that I will get in a reasonable time frame. Next, I will be talking about how I have been virtual convention hopping with the NFB State conventions this fall so stay tuned and follow us on Twitter for the latest!
