Made with advanced polymers and intense pigments for long lasting, brilliant color and intense shine in a single sweep. Cruelty Free, Gluten Free, Paraben Free, EU Compliant. Retail $24.00 USD.
There is absolutely no shade name anywhere on the packaging for this liquid lipstick! But from my tracking number I think the shade is Haute Cocoa. I checked their website as well and it looks like that is the shade, weird that there is no shade name on the package though. The shade looks like it will be my kind of shade, hopefully I can get some use out of it, it didnt seem to dry down when I swatched it so hopefully it stays put as well!
My April 2018, Eye Candy, box has a retail value of $148.00 USD!! My Boxy Charm boxes have always had a retail value of over $100 USD, considering that I pay around $35.00 CAD for the box after shipping and conversion from USD I am quite happy with the value. Boxy Charm usually sends out 4-5, I have only ever had 5, full size products a month.
Here are my thoughts on last months, March 2018 "Bae Cation' box -
PUR The Complexion Authority Eyeshadow Palette- I enjoyed using the PUR palette for the most part. I did find that I kept to the top 2 rows though! I am just not that adventurous with my eye makeup when going to work. Ever eye look I did though, did end up being very warm toned and Nakey and Belle really didn't show as different shades when I used them in the crease. I did like using Duet as a liner, it went on mell and stayed put for most of the day.
Butter London Double Decker Lashes Mascara- I have to admit, I didnt use this mascara at all. I have way to many open mascaras at the moment that I am trying to use up, hopefully I get to this one soon.
South Mane Under Eye Gels- I only ended up using 1 set of the eye gels. From the one time I used them, they felt great on, nice and cool. I didn't find that I was confined to laying down to try to keep these on my underlies, they did 'stick' quite well to the underage area with only. slight slipping. My underlies felt hydrated after using them and makeup went on well afterward.
The Vintage Cosmetics Company Smokey Eye Makeup Brush Set- The Step 1 brush was great for packing shadow onto my lid, although it is a tad big! Step 3 brush worked ok for smudging out liner, but for me Step 2 was a complete dud. The Step 2 brush is just to dense for crease work for me, it was good for placing shadow though. I would not run out to pick up more Vintage Company Makeup brushes.
Pretty Vulgar Make Them Blush- The shade I received, Hush Blush, is the perfect everyday neutral leaning blush! The blush is fairly powdery though, it kicks up quite a bit of powder when I put my brush in. The blush though is fairly pigmented and I didn't find I had to layer this at all.
The April 'Eye Candy' box has some good products in it that I am looking forward to trying out, hopefully I like them. My March 'Bae Cation' box had a few decent products in it, which is good. The PUR palette wasn't as good as the previous Soiree Diaries palette, this one is a little more powdery and not as everyday friendly. I liked 2 of the 3 brushes although I wouldn't rush out to buy more brushes from the brand. The blush is pretty and I will continue to use, but I wouldn't pay $26.00 USD for it. The packaging just doesn't feel like it should cost that much. The eye gels are nice and I will use the other 2 soon. I didn't try out the mascara but will hopefully soon! Do I think the products inside were worth the retail of $115.00 USD? No, but I do think they were worth $35.oo CAD!
