I’ve had my eye on Boxycharm for a while now, so when they released spoilers for October last month (Becca highlighters!!!) I caved and treated myself to a 3-month subscription. After getting my September box, I have zero regrets.
Price: $21/month (or less if you subscribe for multiple months)

Check out what was in my first Boxycharm box:
PÜR Soiree Diaries Eyeshadow Palette ($34): This was the first thing I pulled out of the box and I was SO happy about it. I don’t have many PÜR products in my collection, so I was excited to try the formula. First of all, the colors are so pretty and neutral:
Perfect transition shades and quite a few darker colors and shimmers. The colors are way prettier in person, and the formula is nice and creamy. I had no creasing issues with these and the few eye looks I’ve tried so far have looked really good with my skin tone. Definitely a great way to start my Boxycharm experience!
MAC Cosmetics Eyebrows ($18): I cannot leave the house without my brows filled. I love the Tonya Crooks BrowGal pencil, but I’m always willing to try a new one. What I love about the MAC pencil is that it is self-sharpening so it always has a perfect rounded point ready to go. The color is exactly right for my brows (dark brown), and I found the formula was very natural looking. It might not make me switch from the BrowGal, but I will definitely get a lot of use out of this!
Studio Makeup Loose Blush ($35): Loose blush is a little inconvenient for me due to my propensity to spill things and make messes, but dear lord I love this color. I am so pale that super pigmented blushes tend to make me look like a doll so I have to go into them with a very light hand. This one is light enough to be perfect for my skin tone, but pigmented enough to give me a natural flush color.
BareMinerals Perfecting Face Brush ($28): I like this brush a lot! I am always on board with a new foundation brush (though I do tend to go back to my Morphe M439 brush), and this one is super soft and dense. I don’t use too many BareMinerals products, but people rave about them and I can see why. This brush has just been promoted to my gym bag makeup case, which is a prestigious position.
Briogeo Don’t Despair Repair Deep Conditioning Mask ($20): This is not my first rodeo with this hair mask – I’ve gotten several of these in past boxes, and I’ve used each of them! It’s super nourishing and repairing for hair of all types. I let it sit on my hair for about 5-10 minutes and find that my hair is super full and bouncy for about a week afterwards. I love this hair mask!
Colourpop Ultra Satin Lip ($6): I love Colourpop, but I don’t love their lip products. That’s probably just me though, because I know the rest of the world adores their Ultra Satin Lip line. I typically just don’t use many lip products in general, so I realize this is a Jill-only problem. I will not have a hard time finding a more suitable home for this pretty pinky neutral lip color!
Each box also came with a 25% coupon code for PURcosmetics.com! I love little bonuses like this!
Final Rating: A+
I absolutely love my first Boxycharm box! I am a huge fan of the eyeshadow palette and am looking forward to using that more. I was really impressed by the range of the products and the quality of the brands too. The retail value of this box is $141 (!!!!!), which is way more than I expected. I’ve seen some spoilers for the October box already and I know it’s going to be even better than September!
I bought this box, all opinions are my own.
