As usual, I’m always very excited to see BoxyCharm arrive in my mailbox. This month’s contents were very fun, and I can see myself using pretty much everything in the box – a rarity for any subscription! Here’s what I got this month:

BoxyCharm April - Contents

As always, this post is not sponsored.

BoxyCharm April - lotion and mascara

Anderson Lilley Manhattan Beach Hand Cream
The great thing about this hand cream is that it absorbs into the skin very quickly. This means that I will actually use it. If there’s one thing that really gets on my nerves it’s when I use a hand cream and my hands feel greasy for a long while after. The scent was pretty light, and my hands did feel very smooth after using it.

Blinc Cosmetics Black Lash Primer
I’ve received products from Blinc Cosmetics before, and I haven’t been a fan of their mascaras, due to the odd nature of the products – instead of a traditional mascara formula, they form “tubes” around your lashes which have to be taken off in a specific way. I was wary of this product for that reason, but this primer is not the type that forms tubes. Though this is a primer, it could actually be used as a mascara thanks to its black color. Because of the more traditional formula, I will be using this again.

BoxyCharm April - lipstick and lip balm

Ofra Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick in Pasadena
I’m not too big on lip products, but I’ve been trying to incorporate them more into my beauty routine lately. This one was a huge win. The color is nice, it goes on easily, and I love that as a liquid lipstick it dries after you put it on and doesn’t feel like you’re wearing anything. Also as a bonus, the color goes well with my skin tone, which is rare to find.

Pur-Lisse Lip Comfort with Mango and Shea Butter
I love this lip balm! The smell/taste of mango is amazing and it makes my lips feel soft. It’s a great change-up to my usual plain-old Chapstick routine.

Your Minerals Eye Shadow in Brown Hypnotic
This was the product I was most excited about when I opened the box. It’s very shimmery and complex. I tried it on its own and it was slightly too dark for me, but when paired with a few different eye colors, it works great. I’m happy to have this as an addition to my collection.

I can’t wait to keep using these products and to experiment with some additional looks using the eye shadow. I’m happy to add all of these products to my collection.

    It is always nice to get good packages like that! I went to Sephora today and splurged on some stuff!
