Finally! The last Boxy Charm and I am all caught up again! Until the March one comes! And I am getting the February one up in February, thats a win for me lately. I am still not wearing eye makeup as I am not wanting to rub to much on my eyes removing it. Hopefully soon, maybe by the end of next month? It sure is saving me money though, as I am not as tempted to pick up any new eye products until I know I’ll be able to use them.
The February 2019 theme for Boxy Charm is ‘After Glow’. Guessing products to help your skin/face glow? They did send some products that look like they will be good for that. Again the card is the postcard style.
For my February 2019 ‘After Glow’ Boxy Charm I received facial cleanser, primer, highlighter, mascara and a lip product. I love that Boxy Charm has been sending out such a great assortment of products lately, I love getting makeup but its also fun to try out different skincare.
Too Faced - Better Than Sex Mascara - Indulge in a mascara that actually lives up to its name. Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara separates, coats and curls each lash to voluptuous perfection. Acacia Sengal Tree extract sets volume while film-forming polymers lock your lashes in a perfect curl. Retail $24.00 USD.
I have another full size of this sitting in my drawer, hence why I didn’t open this one to show you the wand. I am still not wearing mascara, this healing process can hurry up and be done with! I will try this mascara out once I am wearing mascara again and let you know what I think about it. I know I have tried it before, but for the life of me I can’t remember what I thought about it.
Pretty Vulgar - Shimmering Swan Highlighter in Glow Up - Allow your skin to capture the light of any room you walk into with this unique, velvety smooth highlighter. Infused with glow-loving, light reflecting and pearlescent pigments, this highlighter will give your skin the perfect amount of brightness. Retail $32.00 USD.
This looks like a nice highlighter, it didnt feel chalky nor to chunky, aka glitter bomb! I will try this out once I am wearing a full face of makeup again…not to sure how it would look if I put this on with the very minimal makeup I am wearing right now.
Touch In Sol - No Proreblem Primer - Creat a seamless canvas for your foundation with your new Touch In Sol No Poreblem Primer. The light, silky texture blurs pores and wrinkles, giving your skin a soft velvet feel. Green tea and cologne act as adhesives, holding on tight to your makeup for many hours of flawlessness. Retail $18.00 USD.
I am looking forward to trying out this primer with a liquid foundation. I have tried it out with powder foundation and it seems to help fill in my pores, not so much with oiliness though. I like that it was the expire date printed on the bottom of the jar, more products should do that.
Farmacy - Clean Bee Ultra Gentle Facial Cleanser - Soothe and hydrate your skin while lifting dirt, excess oil, impurities, grime and makeup. Your new Farmacy Clean Bee Ultra Gentle Facial Cleanser was made for daily use, keeping those with sensitive skin in mind. It is formulated with naturally derived ingredients like coconut, sugar, amino acids and a powerful botanical blend of turmeric, chamomile, calendula, aloe and liquorice root. Retail $22.00 USD.
I will be trying this out soon, I am just trying to finish up a few cleansers that I already have open right now. Am I the only one who doesn’t like to have to many different products one at the same time? I like to finish up what I am using before opening another.
Trestique - Prime + Glaze Lip Crayon in English Rose - This two-in-one lip duo features a luxurious lip smoothing primer on one side and a shiny color glaze on the other. The priming side smoothes lips and glides on like a balm, creating a super smooth canvas. The color glaze effortlessly glides onto your lips to leave behind a pop of soft shiny color. Retail $25.00 USD.
This is a nice idea to have a build in primer with the lip product. Saves you from having to find one. The shade may be a little darker than I am used to wearing daily but I will try it out. The lip color is shaped differently than I have seen before, I can imagine that it would make it fairly easy to get a nice crisp line before filling in. The packaging has a nice weight to it and the lid is magnetic!
My February 2019 ‘After Glow’ Boxy Charm came with a retail value of $121.00 USD. I have said it often enough on here, but I do think that Boxy Charm is well worth the $35.00ish CAD that I pay for it monthly. Even if there are only a couple of items I like, I at least had the chance to try out some new to me products. I so far, haven’t gotten anything in my Boxy Charm that I already have. I have received quite a few lip colors that I won’t wear but supposedly starting next month they are going to be going off of a questionnaire that we filled out, here’s hoping I get some nude shades!
