Beauty BoxyCharm review

November 2018 BoxyCharm

$21 a month for a mystery beauty box? Let's see what I got (with swatches)!

Hi guys!

This month’s BoxyCharm theme is Goal Getter. Everything has gold, either in packaging or the product itself. I guess I get the correlation, but all goals don’t have to do with amassing wealth…am I overthinking it? Yes? Okay, moving on. Let’s see what I got (Note- this is Version 3 of the box).

CoverFx, Glitter Drops in the shade Nova, $44


The glow is crazy on these. The amount of glitter is crazier. They are glittery AF. I’m really not sure how I will use this in my daily life, though…. I may try mixing it into the MUFA Mat Velvet foundation that I’m trying to pan to make it glowy.

(I tried it on the back of my hand… I don’t think it’s going to work…The glitter overwhelms the foundation.)


I don’t like glittery highlights either so…I really don’t know what to do with this. I may find a friend to give it to if I can’t figure it out.

Ace Beautè, Grandiose Palette, $24.99



This palette is so beautiful. I’ve heard such great things about this brand’s eyeshadow palettes that I was super excited to see it in the box. Swatching the colors, the matte feel creamy and smooth, the shimmers are like butter and pack a serious punch. I am very much looking forward to using this palette. I can see myself getting a ton of use from it if the shadows perform on the eyes like I am hoping they do. The only thing I don’t like is that there is no mirror. I’m the person that really prefers using the mirror in the palette but I’ll survive.

Luxie, Luminous Eye Set, $21


I have said it before, but I LOVE receiving brushes in subscription boxes. That is how I got the majority of my brush collection. Luxie brushes, specifically, are my favorite brand of brushes to receive. They are some of the most high quality cruelty-free brushes that I have ever used. I know I can always count on them to perform well. This set of brushes is nice and small for detail work. I think they will be really great additions to my collection. These alone are worth the cost of this month’s subscription price.

Jontéblu, Glittering Start Eyeliner, $5


This is a really affordable cruelty-free brand. I have tried one of their pencil eyeliners before and it was okay. I don’t really use glittery black eyeliners, especially pencil liners. So, again, I’m not sure how much use I will get out of this product.

Lashaholic Lashes, Instaglam False Eyelashes, $14.99


I don’t really wear falsies very often, and when I do, I prefer natural-looking lashes such as the Ardell Demi-Wispie line. These look like they may toes the line between natural and dramatic. So, I will give them a try… I just don’t know when.

I have to say, this month’s box caters pretty heavily to glitter lovers. That isn’t really me. I don’t even like glittery eyeshadow very often. The two products that save this month are the Luxie brushes and the eyeshadow palette. The price of those is more than double the cost of the subscription, so I don’t feel like I was cheated. I will let you guys know if I can figure out a way to use the CoverFx drops, but if I don’t say anything, just assume I gave them away.

Do you guys subscribe to any beauty boxes? Was your box worth it this month? Let’s chat!

  1. I just signed up for BoxyCharm!! I’m a glitter lover, especially during the Holidays so I’m kind of hoping it’s not too late for me to get this box!
