How to Grow Your Makeup Collection While on a Budget: Boxycharm February 2017. 

IT’S HERE! 😀 My February Boxycharm has finally arrived and I’m so excited for it! 

I know last month I said that January’s box was my favorite… Well guys, I think this month is DEFINITELY going to be my favorite! 

Boxycharm just KILLS IT every month and I’m rarely (if ever) disappointed! 



If you’re looking to grow your makeup collection and you like trying new brands, and even high end brands, subscribing to boxycharm is seriously an amazing way to do so! 

I’ve received makeup products- eyeliner, eye shadows, eye primers, mascara, lipstick, lipgloss, lipbalm, lip stains, lip liner, blush, bronzer, highlighter, etc… YOU NAME IT. Some of my favorite brushes that I use daily are ones that I received from Boxycharm. 

I’ve received skincare- face masks, serums, eye creams, etc.. and they are all high end. (Especially this months skincare product) 

I’ve received fragrances and they actually smell amazing! 😉 

All in all, you get an amazing variety from so many great brands- Tarte, Ofra, Makeup Geek, Dr. Brandt, Luxie, etc… 

Let’s take a look into the goodies that I received this month!…. 

1. My favorite items this month: TRIO EYE SKIT BY SEDONA LACE. 


These brushes are beautiful and are of such good quality, and there’s THREE of them! One blender brush, one double ended eyebrow/ spoolie brush, and an eyeliner brush! They are all synthetic hairs which I love and this trio normally retails for $39.99 

I love receiving brushes and I am excited to try Sedona Lace because I have been curious about this brand for so long! 

2. MAKEUP GEEK EYESHADOW PANS

In the shades “Beaches n’ Cream” and “Glamorous” 


Makeup geek has AMAZING shadows and I am growing my collection by all the shadow pans that I’ve received from previous boxes! Each shadow retails for $6 each. I’m so excited to use them! Beaches n’ cream is the perfect cream and natural shade (which I’ve been needing). And Glamorous is a pretty shimmer Brown/ gold shade. 


3. DR. BRANDT DERMABRASION MASK. 


Holy smokes, this bad boy retails for $79! (Say what?!) I’ve been on the hunt for a good mask and now I’m so happy I have this to try out! Let me know if y’all want a first impressions post on this
4. SMALL Z PALETTE 


YAY! We recently got an Ofra Z palette a few months ago and mine is already filled up, so this one is perfect! This palette retails for $14 and  fits 9 eyeshadow pans and I plan to organize all of my MUG shadows in it!


5. JAPONESQUE PRO PERFORMANCE LIPSTICK 

 
This is in the shade 07 and it’s a lovely maroon/ brownish shade and it retails for $20.. Do y’all think I can pull this color off? I’m not sure if I can… if not, I think I’ll add it to a future giveaway on my Instagram 


So to total it all… I received 8 products for $21 and the retail value of this box was $165! WOW! 

Y’all, this is such a great way to build your makeup collection when you’re on a budget… high end and full size products for $21?! You can’t beat that! 

The variety of brands and products is also nice when building your collection!

  1. This looks like a fab box – such a good value! I’ve had some Japonesque brushes before and I’ve absolutely loved them, they’re such an innovative brand! x

    1. I love boxycharm so much!! I’ve never tried japonesque brushes but this lipstick is amazing!!! So I’m sure their brushes are amazing too!

    1. I’ve had ipsy before this one and I LOVE this one so much more- mainly because it’s full size abs great products every month! I’m not a sample size fan lol my collection has grown so much since subscribing to boxycharm

  2. Ok – never heard of BoxyCharm, but then again there are a million subscription services out there! Love what you got in the box, especially the lipstick! You can totally pull it off!

  3. Wow! All of that for $21 dollars? My daughter would love this and a subscription would make a wonderful birthday present. Thank you!

  4. I went through a big subscription box addiction last year and I got Boxy Charm and loved it! I got so many great full-sized products that I still use and love. I really need to resubscribe.

  5. Wow! I cannot believe that was only $21!!! You could easily spend that on one of the items, and to get all 8 is very cool. Have you tried the mask yet? I am always searching for a new mask.

    1. I actually misspoke on the mask, it’s actually an exfoliator, not sure why I was confused on it, so sorry about that! lol I guess I was just really wanting a mask. I haven’t tried it yet!

  6. I love beauty boxes. I live in Greece though, and most of my favorites boxes don’t ship in Greece. What a pity! This box looks fantastic, all the products are really useful.

  7. That looks like a great deal for the price. I have Birchbox, but am not very happy with it at all. Every month I say I am going to unsubscribe. Those Dr. Brandt products are so good! If only the full size ones weren’t so darn expensive!

    1. I’ve never tried or heard anything great about birchbox honestly… lol but those dr. Brandt are nice to try out!

  8. I love these type of boxes! Not only do you get the most bang for your buck but the surprise of what you get is a lot of fun!

  9. Boxycharm killed it with this box. I’ve been dying to try Makeup Geek shadows. I keep telling myself I’m going to place an order, but have yet to do it. Those brushes look amazing as well. Japonesque has quickly become a favorite of mine. I haven’t tried their lipsticks, but do own a few palettes from them and they are such great quality.

  10. This looks like a great subscription box! I used to get glossybox and birchbox but ended up unsubscribing to save money. I totally want to start again now!

  11. I just started a makeup subscription service and It’s a great way to try products. I love the sizes of the products that you are getting. It makes it seem like such a great deal! I want to try it.
