LIVING LA VIE EN ROSE WITH BOXYCHARM MARCH 2019





Hi there, my darlings! Spring is in the air! Finally! After a brutal (at least, for me) first winter in Canada, I'm SO ready for Spring! It'll be nice to be able to breathe outdoors again! In celebration of the upcoming happy Spring season, let's check out March 2019's BoxyCharm! Last month was not my favorite but they really hit it out of the ballpark this month! Take a look!


WANDER BEAUTY Lift Off Purifying and Brightening Mask ($34.00 USD)

A bright berry pearl purifying and brightening peel off mask packed with intense antioxidants to instantly detoxify and awaken dull skin.

Our bright berry pearl peel off mask containing a blend of skin-loving acai, goji berry, blueberry, lychee, mangosteen and green tea extracts that instantly purify and replenish dull skin. Kaolin absorbs excess oil and draws out impurities, minimizing the appearance of enlarged pores. This skin-saving mask dries quickly and lifts off effortlessly to reveal a smoother, clearer, and brighter complexion.

Cruelty Free. Gluten Free. Vegan Friendly. Dermatologist Tested.

    My skin has been SO troublesome lately--it seems like I get a new pimple or blemish or zit every other day. No matter how clean I keep my skin or how many serums I apply, I just keep breaking out. I guess that's what stress will do to you. But since my skin has been such a pain, I was really glad to see this mask in this month's box--I could definitely use some purifying action! Plus, there's something so satisfying about a peel-off mask, right? Absolutely going to use this addition A LOT!




    MODA Limited Edition 2 pc Powder and Soft Glow Kit ($29.99 USD)

    An icy cool pink with a metallic finish

    Everybody gets a lippie. This matte liquid lipstick is long-lasting color that perfectly outlines and fills in lips, turning your pout into kissable velvet. Stunning pigments stay put all day with minimal transfer while maintaining a comfortable wear. Infused with Vitamin A and antioxidants, lips look and feel healthy all day.


      IT'S SO FLUFFY!!! Do you hear that in the voice of Penny from Despicable Me? You do? Good, just as I hoped! These brushes are so very soft and yes, so fluffy that you just want to use them. The larger powder brush is great for applying full-coverage face or setting powder, which I use pretty regularly. The Soft Glow brush would be perfect to use with your more intense highlighters or loose highlighting pigments--it picks up just enough product to allow for a subtle glow, without either the result getting too overwhelming or the product being wasted (read: a mess being made). Happily added to my brush collection!




      APPEAL COSMETICS Rose Gold Liquid Eyeshadow ($21.00 USD)

      This highly pigmented eyeshadow is exactly what your vanity was missing.The liquid formula adds a multidimensional shimmer to your eye look, giving it that sparkle that looks almost unachievable.
        I haven't heard of this brand before Boxycharm so I was happy to be introduced to it. That being said, this shade is supposed to be rose gold but honestly, it was more of a burnished, coppery gold on my skin tone. I really didn't pick up much of the rose tones in any light. Nevertheless, a super pretty shade! The formula, too, was quite easy to work with--it's a thinner liquid so it applies very easily and with the first layer, it isn't too in-your-face, if you know what I mean. Of course, you could layer it on for a bolder, sparklier look, like I did with the swatch below, but this one allows for a more subtle look too, if that's more your style!




        COVER FX Perfector Face Palette ($57.00 USD)

        A convenient palette that contains all you need to Contour, Strobe, and Highlight your complexion.

        What it Does:

        Six must-have complexion essentials in one travel-friendly palette designed to take on-the-go. Sculpt with contour and blush, illuminate with two shimmering highlighters, and find your perfect finish with the brightener and finishing powder for a glowing, multidimensional look anywhere and everywhere you go.

        This clinically tested vegan and cruelty free product does not contain: parabens, fragrance, mineral oil, talc, gluten, sulfates, or phthalates.

        Available in Light/Medium (shown below) and Medium/Deep.




        Last month, there was no full-size palette included in the box. This month, they more than made up for it  in my eyes by including this beauty and that too, from one of my favorite brands! I have reviewed Cover FX in the past and pretty much loved everything that I tried--their formulas are always on point. This beauty is no different! Admittedly, the shades would probably work best on a lighter skin tone than mine but I still love it and will use it! The highlighters, for sure, will get good use! At that price point, I probably wouldn't have picked it up on my own but what a steal that it's in the Boxycharm!




        OFRA COSMETICS Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick - Monaco ($20.00 USD)

        An icy cool pink with a metallic finish

        Everybody gets a lippie. This matte liquid lipstick is long-lasting color that perfectly outlines and fills in lips, turning your pout into kissable velvet. Stunning pigments stay put all day with minimal transfer while maintaining a comfortable wear. Infused with Vitamin A and antioxidants, lips look and feel healthy all day.

          Ah yes! A metallic! Metallic lippies are just so pretty...you know, I'm a sucker for anything with a little shimmer and shine! Besides, this pretty, rosy shade is one of the few pinks that actually look pretty good on my darker skin. Plus, I love Ofra's formula--moussey is the perfect description for it! It starts off as a light, creamy mousse and dries to a perfect matte. I really need more of these in my life!

          1. I got the more expensive box and received several of these items. I'm very impressed with it and the value of the box.
