BOXYCHARM BOXY BASH BOX FOR MAY 2018





Hi there, my darlings! If there's one thing I really miss about being in the US...OK, wait, there is definitely more than ONE thing but one OF the things I miss most is the availability of some of the best subscription boxes. I was a sub box junkie when I first started blogging and to this day, I love the beauty boxes in particular. Imagine my surprise and delight when I found out that one of my favorite subscription boxes, BoxyCharm shipped all OVER Canada! YAY! I have been seeingtheir epic boxes all over social media and totally wanted to sign up, once things got more settled in my life, but as luck would have it, I didn't have to wait! Take a peek at May 2018's Boxy Bash box!


COVERFX Blurring Primer ($38.00 USD)

A lightweight, soft focus primer that blurs the appearance of pores, fine lines, and other imperfections for ultra-smooth airbrushed skin.

Blur, smooth and diffuse. This silky smooth primer instantly minimizes the look of pores, fine lines, and unwanted texture for a flawlessly smooth complexion. Use under makeup to create a smooth canvas for a seamless foundation application, over makeup as an instant retouching balm, or wear alone for a soft focus airbrushed effect.


I love CoverFX's primers so I was really excited to see that this one included in this month's box! This primer is slightly tinted and blends in beautifully with my skin tone!



AESTHETICA P12 Face Brush ($27.00 USD)

With synthetic fibers that allow maximum control, the P12 face brush is perfect for creating a seamless look.


It's so FLUFFY! (I hope you read that in little Agnes' voice!) Really, I love how soft and fluffy this brush is--perfect for blush and face powder!



PRETTY VULGAR The Ink Gel Eyeliner ($24.00 USD)

The Ink gel eyeliner is a highly pigmented, quick-drying, water-resistant liner that allows you to achieve precise, long-wearing, transfer-proof, and smudge-proof eyeliner looks. Enriched with Linoleic Acid and Linolenic Acid to condition the lid, our eyeliner has a luxuriously smooth, creamy formula that glides on easily. 


Shown below in the shade Black List, I'm impressed with just how incredibly black this liner is. My number one requirement for a black eyeliner is for it to be blacker than night so this is a welcome addition to my stash!




AESTHETICA 3 Piece Eye Trio ($45.00 USD)

The Aesthetica Trio Series comes with an Angled Eyeliner Brush, a Brow Spoolie, and a Fine Tipped Eyeliner Brush. A convenient 3-in-1, used for a variety of looks, from a subtle wing to dramatic cat-eye. Use brow brush for fuller, more defined eyebrows.


I can never find an eyeliner brush when I need one OR a spoolie so I was really thrilled to add these to my brush kit! Especially since the eyeliner above was also in this box.




HAN SKIN CARE Lip Gloss in Nude Rose ($15.00 USD)

Our all natural lip gloss is formulated with antioxidant rich argan and acai oil to hydrate and treat lips with its high Vitamin E content. It is infused with anti-aging super-fruit extracts and vitamins as well as plant and vegetable pigments to benefit the skin.

* Our lip gloss base includes argan oil and acai oil to moisturize and hydrate lips
* A nutrient dense formula that delivers beautiful color from desirable natural sources
* Vegetarian, Healthy and All Natural



I'm not one for nude lippies or glosses for that matter but this is a pretty shade if you like neutrals and works fairly well with a medium skin tone like mine.





PUR Sculptor Palette ($40.00 USD)

Bring out your natural beauty and enliven your complexion, lids and cheeks with this multi-use palette. Powder to cream blush, face glow, and lid hues enhance & add luminosity. Swish on these gorgeous shades to recreate Dulce’s stunning looks! (This product is not eligible for promotion.)




This little palette is what I'm MOST excited about in this box. Imagine, a subscription box with a full-size palette! Yup! Boxycharm does it again! The cost of just this palette is more than the box put together! Now that's what I call a great deal.

That being said, I actually love the palette itself. The shades are pigmented enough to work well for my skin tone and I'm talking about the highlighter AND contour shades, which is a rare find for me. Add to that the fact that these shadows feel SO good and blend so well and we have a definite winner here!




So there you have it, my darlings! You can sign up for your very own Boxycharm subscription on their site HERE--it's just $21 a month! Shipping is free within the US and an additional $5 throughout Canada! YAY!

  2. I've been getting Boxycharm for close to 2 years and I'm always happy with it. Right now I have a giveaway for my latest one on my blog (beautyinfozone.com) since it doesn't suite me that well. I'm still impressed with it though.

  4. I just cancelled my Sephora Play subscription, and I'm wondering if I should cancel Ipsy too and go with Boxycharm for a few months. I'd like the makeup brushes, the lip balm. Not sure if the PUR palette and CoverFX primer would work for my skin tone. But it's a wonderful box this month, and perfect for you

  9. This looks like such a great box! I'm super mad at Sephora Play right now and I'm thinking of switching to another subscription service.

  10. I heard about this so much, but never tried before. My sister-in-law send me one may-2018 box from U.S.A. I always love bronze looks! I am using this bronzer for a month and I use this regularly. This is so smooth and so buttery I can't skip using this and the look it gives me is amazing. Makes my skin super smooth also. Last spring, I did my Spring makeup lessons , I suggested this one to my new friend Lucy there. She also loves this one ! And boxycharm is so amazing! They are providing full size products, within reasonable prices! Thanks a lot to them and for your post! <3
