Unboxing + Review: Boxycharm November 2017 Sweater Weather

boxycharm november 2017

 

Sweater Weather.

With it being as cold as it is this week (and it has been pretty warm up until the other day!), it definitely is sweater weather around here! So how perfect is it that Boxycharm would use this as their theme for November’s box.

Boxycharm is an American subscription box that ships to Canada. It is $21.00 USD per month or you can get a small discount for a 3-month, 6-month or annual subscription. You can cancel at anytime which is nice. Each month you will receive four to five full-sized beauty items. If you would like to try this sub, I would appreciate it if you would use my link here. 🙂

There were a couple of items that I was super excited about when I received this box. Let’s take a look at those products first.

I’m not sure if you’ve noticed but I am a huge Luxie Beauty fan. There isn’t a brush of theirs that I have tried and disliked… I just adore them! So I was very excited to see the Luxie Beauty Quad Eyes Travel Set ($32.00 USD). This set comes with four eye brushes that are the same as their full sized version. I love that these are so compact. I will definitely be taking these the next time I travel and they will be very useful during camping… er… glamping season. 😉

Next up is a full-sized bottle of the CoverFX Illuminating Setting Spray ($31.00 USD). I have been wanting to try this setting spray for the longest time so I was happy to receive it! This setting spray is meant to set your makeup and provide you with instant all over illumination. I love how fine the mist is – one of the finest mists I have ever seen! – because it doesn’t make my face feel like its drenched. A huge plus that this is alcohol free so it shouldn’t dry out your skin. So far I am really liking this!

The next product is so cute! The WinkyLux Kitten Palette ($25.00 USD) features cute kittens on the outer packaging and highly-pigmented shadows on the inside. The eyeshadows are a mix of different finishes  including mattes, satins, glitters and holographic shadows. My love for cats means that I automatically love this but the shadows are great too so it’s fantastic all around.

These next products I weren’t as excited about. 

The Laqa & Co Cloud Lips in the shade Sunshower ($17.00 USD) is a matte lipstick that is full coverage and long lasting. I would love to try this product but I’m not a big fan of this shade so I’m going to try and find a new home for it. Bright blue reds and I don’t really get along.

Last, I received three KNC Beauty Collagen Lip Masks ($15.00 USD). These are jelly lip masks that provide hydration, moisture and plump. I’m not sure about these lip masks but seeing as my lips have been pretty dry this winter, I’m willing to give it a chance.

So that’s it! The total value of this box was $120.00 USD which later translates into around $152.00 CAD using today’s exchange rate. Not too shabby, if you ask me! I love three out of five of the items so that’s still pretty good. 

What did you think of November’s Boxycharm?

Birchbox Canada May 2015 Unboxing and Review

I’m home after a week of road tripping and camping with friends and our home on wheels! Now that life is getting back to normal, I can get back to blogging!

I received my May Birchbox a long time ago and because I already have my June box (with my July box on the way!) I thought I would just do a quick unboxing so I can catch up on my June subscription reviews. Continue reading “Birchbox Canada May 2015 Unboxing and Review”
