BOXYCHARM Creepy Cute March Subscription Box Review

BOXYCHARM's March Box arrived on the first day of Spring. With the theme Creepy Cute in pretty pastels I was expecting it to be brimming with corals, shimmers, and warm neutrals. Instead I got a box that looked like it belonged in October. I wasn't disappointed though because it included two lip products from Real Her, one of my favorite cruelty-free lip brands. Let it be Fall again!

About BoxyCharm: For $21 a month you get 5 full size beauty products with a retail value of over $100. Free Shipping in the U.S.
Smashbox PhotoFinish Primer ($19)
This primer was the first product that was ever created at Smashbox photo studios L.A. It instantly blurs fine lines and pores leaving skin with a velvety-smooth even finish. Smashbox Photofinish is a holy grail of primers. It was one of the first primers I ever tried. I just don't like heavy silicone primers, actually I don't like primers at all. This one gets the job done done though if you need to fill in larger pores or smooth out fine lines.
Crown Brush Deluxe Fan Brush ($18.99)
This fan brush features a large fanned brush head perfect for application of powder products. Another fan brush? Come on BoxyCharm. One fan brush that no one uses is all one ever needs. This brush is soft, but mine arrived with brush hairs all crazy out of place.

Naked Cosmetics Urban Rustic Palette ($39.99)
These colors offer a dramatic look when applied damp or with an eye base. The colors have hints of green, bronze, purple, and brown. This palette is what had me confused about the seasons. The colors are beautiful but not something I'm going to be wearing any time soon.

I have never heard of Naked Cosmetics before. Getting three small eyeshadows for $40 is insane and not in a good way. I would expect it with an established luxury brand, but not for one that no one has ever heard of. Also, the purple wasn't pigmented so you're only getting two decent eyeshadows. I am happy to be able to try this via BOXYCHARM though because I never would have bought it myself.

RealHer Matte Liquid Lipstick ($15)
Now we get to the good stuff! I am a huge fan of the RealHer Moisturizing lipstick's and had been wanting to try their new liquid formulas since I saw they were releasing them. These have a lightweight formula with a bold ultra-matte finish. How pretty is the packaging? I love their packaging.

"I Am A Rockstar" is a matte dusty vintage rose. Again Fall themes here. I am just about over the matte lip trend, but I am still on the hunt to find one that I actually like. This one is a winner in a few ways. Normally I have trouble with liquid lipstick's remaining sticky or wearing patchy. One coat of this dries down immediately and locks in to place for hours. The color was rich and fully matte. Downside, it feels very dry on the lips and does emphasize lip lines. This is just something that's hard to get around with long wear matte liquid lipstick's. Besides the dry factor, the color, formula, and wear time is excellent.

RealHer Lipliner ($12.50)
This is a creamy lip liner that glides across the lips to define and shape. I really like this formula it applies easily and stays in place. I am Loved is a dusty deep rose shade and worked perfectly with the I Am A Rockstar lip color. I would definitely buy more of these they are a lot like Urban Decay's.

Talk about one wacky BOXYCHARM, it was almost as if they recycled what they didn't put in the Fall boxes and scrambled last minute to put this one together. I was happy to get to try out more products from RealHer but the rest were disappointing. Lets see if they can get it together with some real Spring offerings next month!
