BoxyCharm | October

by Lisa on Friday: Oct 21, 2016

Another month, another BoxyCharm review! The theme of this month’s BoxyCharm is “Boxy Bazaar”, and this month’s box contained a wide variety of products. Was it as good as last month’s rave?

October BoxyCharm - Info Card

Here’s what we got this month:

October BoxyCharm - Luxie Brushes

Luxie Beauty Eye Blender Brush Pack
I’m always excited to get new brushes in a subscription box, and I had actually been needing a new blending brush that was on the smaller side (the only one I had in my collection was too big). These brushes are all blending brushes, and they come in three varying sizes, all rather small. However I would have preferred to get a blending brush plus two other kinds of brushes instead of 3 of the same type.

October BoxyCharm - Temptu

Temptu Shimmer Bronzer
I was pretty hesitant when I saw this in the box. I have extremely pale skin, and I’ve never tried a liquid bronzer before. I was certain it would make me look crazy, and I had heard a lot of people grumbling that they were unhappy that this was included in their boxes this month. I gave it a try mostly for the sake of being able to give my opinion in this blog post, and I actually was pleasantly surprised. This bronzer blends incredibly well and it can be as light as you want it to be. It just goes to show that you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover.

October BoxyCharm - Lip Color and Briogeo

Briogeo Blow Dry Perfection Heat Protectant
I haven’t given this a try just yet, but this heat protectant comes in a cream form and has a great smell to it. I don’t regularly use heat protectants on my hair, but every now and then I throw one into my routine so I will be saving it for that.

Starlooks Ultra Matte Lip Paint
This is a very nice fall color and I really wish the formula had been better. It was extremely dry and patchy and this was not helped by the extremely stiff wand it came with. I had a hard time applying it, and though I liked the color, I didn’t like the way it looked at all.

October BoxyCharm - IBY Palette

IBY Beauty Threes Company Trio Eye Shadow
I think if BoxyCharm hadn’t sent the Studio Makeup palette last month that this trio would have gone over a lot better. It includes shadows of pretty good quality and nice, wearable colors.

October BoxyCharm - IBY Palette Inside

However the colors are remarkably similar to the ones in last month’s palette, and if I had to choose I would pick the Studio Makeup over this one any day. Still, not a bad product if you didn’t get the one from last month.


Overall, this month’s BoxyCharm wasn’t one of my favorites, but in my eyes, BoxyCharm is like a pizza – even an average one is still delicious.


What did you think of this month’s BoxyCharm?

Do you prefer your bronzers to be powder, liquid or cream-based?
