The last post for the month of February, and today we’re talking all about the goodies that were sent out in BoxyCharm’s February box. Are any of you subscribed to get their boxes? I’d love to hear what you thought of your the February box!
If you don’t know what BoxyCharm is all about, see my first unboxing post and I lay out all the details of this fabulous beauty subscription service.
What’s Inside BoxyCharm‘s February Box
Here’s a quick snapshot of everything in my box. I always love using the fun, pink confetti paper that they use to package the products as a backdrop for my pictures. 🙂 As usual, we’ll dive into each product in the order that I took them out of the box in.
The first thing that grabbed my attention was this pretty, apothecary-style bottle filled with powdered clay from Mullein & Sparrow. I did a little dance when I saw this — I love doing mud masks to help keep my skin clear of acne. This is only a deluxe size sample, but it’s still valued at $15 (they sell mini’s for this amount on their website). There are several different types of clay in here, all of them very beneficial and detoxifying. Can’t wait to use it!
Next was a chubby pencil from Jing Ai. I’ve never heard of the brand before, but loved the cute packaging.
As you can see, I got the color Pink Star. 🙂
Isn’t it really pretty? The perfect color for the upcoming spring, and also very appropriate for Valentine’s Day, don’t you think?
Here it is on my lips. I loved that the color applied very glossy and pigmented for a lip shine. It was a shade or two lighter than it looked in the pencil, but it stayed true to the swatch on my hand. I love it! Can’t wait to wear it some more this spring!
Next up was a brush. I always get excited for brushes — don’t ask me why, I just do. 🙂 The brush is called a Duo Fiber Mini Round Brush, retails for $15, and is the type I would use to darken my outer corner.
It feels a tad bit still, so I don’t think it will work well for blending anything out. But I think it will be great to pack on the color.
In a previous box (I think December) they included a Mistura brush, and this time they’ve sent a complexion corrector stick along. I looked on the card and on the product itself, but I can’t figure out what color this is….or if they only had one available. So I checked the site and, indeed, they only sell one color.
Which seems strange, but I was pleasantly surprised to see that it looked like it would go well on my skin tone. Not as an under eye concealer, but should work to conceal any acne spots. Though I must throw out there really quick…this concealer is $37 in Canadian dollars (which means about $30 in US dollars). Kinda expensive — but that’s why you subscribe to a beauty box, right? To try out brands you wouldn’t otherwise purchase. 🙂
Last, but NOT least, is this nail polish. I love to paint my nails and try glitters and whatnot, so this instantly jumped to the top of my favorites from this box. 🙂
This is the first ‘chunky confetti’ nail polish that I’ve gotten from ncLA, but I have received a solid color from them and really liked the formula. So I have high hopes for this bottle!
The hearts look so beautiful in here. I’ll post a picture on my Instagram page when I do a manicure with this. The price is a bit steep ($16), but the quality is pretty fabulous. 🙂
And there you have it, all the products I received in my February box. I’m pretty stoked with everything I got. Nothing looks to be a dud, for which I am thrilled. I’m keeping my fingers crossed for the concealer, but even if that’s not all I had hoped it to be, it will still be well worth the $21 this box cost. Don’t you think?! 🙂
The Value of BoxyCharm’s February Box
Now it’s time to do the math. 🙂 The value always far exceeds the price of the box, but it’s fun to see exactly how much.
Just shy of a $100 value to this box. Pretty good results for only $21. A girl can always use a mask, nail polish, a new eye brush, and another lipstick. And if the concealer works well and is in your color, so much the better!
I received the products mentioned above from BoxyCharm in the hopes that I would mention them on my blog. Regardless, this does not guarantee a review or feature on my blog. I only share information that I think will be useful for my readers and I only recommend products I have personally used.
