Subscription Satelite: BoxyCharm December 2020

Hello to all of you beautiful nerds and welcome back from traveling the vast nerd universe! I am back with a new post!

BoxyCharm December 2020

So, my BoxyCharm arrived on Monday and glad I got it since all the holiday deliveries are at a big high. I am still waiting on No Make No Life since it’s still on transit mode. Will do the post once I get it. Now to this! This is the base box for $25 and you get prestige and luxury brands that you sometimes find online and on Sephora. They even some indie brands as well. Let’s see what I got this month!

Artist Coutor Caliente Shadow Pallet: First up is an item from Artist Couture. I remembered getting a loose highlighter from this brand but didn’t work out for me since it looked like I had that white sunscreen look according to someone that found it weird. I did toss it afterwards. This pallet is an eight-shade pallet that features five mattes, two metallics and one multi-dimensional shade. These shades are picked and curated to make versatile looks. I will have to try this pallet out then since I do enjoy warm toned shades. This pallet retails for $30.

Ofra Cosmetics Pressed Banana Powder: Next is the item I chose for this month and that is the Ofra Pressed Banana Powder. It’s been a while since I got a banana powder and when I saw this, I decided on it. I think I preferred it over the other choices. This is a versatile powder with a light banana scent. You can use it to conceal dark circles and set concealer and foundation. I will be using this to set my under-eye concealer and I remembered I did that with a sample of a banana powder I got in Ipsy. This retails for $35.

Tarte Man Eater Mascara: Next up is another mascara and this time it’s from Tarte. Is it me or is this starting to feel like Ipsy since they are known more for getting Tarte items? Except when I got back to Boxy, I did get a Tarte Rainforest of the Sea pallet. Anyways, this has the claims of curling, volumizing and lengthening the lashes. It also has a very plush wand and lightweight black formula. I will have to see with this one since I did enjoy the Surfer Curl one. Let’s see how it goes! This retails for $23.

Mac Matte Lipstick: Okay, I am getting Ipsy vibes with this since they also get Mac Cosmetics. I’m happy to see them here too but I feel like this would be a GB Plus item or GB X since that’s starting. I did hear that Boxy and Ipsy did merge. Anyways, this is the iconic lipstick that Mac has released for many years and it’s known for high impact color, which I’m not going to lie, it is amazing in color. I had to re-purchase my tube of Dubonnet because it broke so be careful with some of these. I received mine in Russian Red, which I purchased one tube from Ipsy since they were doing a discount on Mac lipsticks at the time. It’s good to have a back up just in case. This retails for $19.

Eloise Beauty Metallic Liquid Shadow: Final item is a liquid shadow from Eloise. I never tried this brand before and glad to do it here. I thought it was a lip gloss due to the scent but glad to get this. So, I got a double shadow bit this box. This is supposed to be a long wearing formula and it has a metallic and glittery mix. I got the shade Pure Gold which is of course gold. I don’t mind since I do enjoy gold shadows. I will try this out and see how it goes. This retails for $26.

Okay, to be perfectly honest, I feel this month’s box felt more like an Ipsy to me but more full-size with a hint of luxury. Even though BoxyCharm has given out Ofra and Artist Couture but with the Tarte and Mac items, it felt like they were getting out of the Ipsy leftovers. I don’t know guys; I feel that with the merger they may be another ipsy. Will I unsubscribe? I am not sure at this moment, I will have to give it a few more months.

With that being said, stay tuned for No Make No Life when it arrives. In the meantime, I will be doing a post as an inspiration from 90s Love Child. Stay tuned!
