In 2019 I started to unsubscribe to my beauty boxes (but that’s another post). The one that I kept was Boxycharm (here’s my referral code) because it’s really the best value, hands down. For only $21/month you get well over $100 worth of product, many of which are full sized. As you can see from the photo below my February 2019 was a jackpot win! The Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara (which retails for $24) paid for the entire box.
I also got….
The Pretty Vulgar Bronzed B, Bronzer (retail $32). This is a nice product which I would never pay $32 for but I was thrilled to get it in my box. It’s Made in the USA too.
The Touch In Sol No Problem Primer (retail $18). I have never heard of this brand but a full-sized primer is a good product to get.
The Sol De Janeiro Coco Cabana Cream (retail $20). I have the Bum Bum Cream and this one smells amazing too. So a huge yes to a nice coconut cream.
The NudeStix Magnetic Luminous Eye Color (retail $24). Again I would never pay $24 for a stick but happy to get one. The shade is a super nice bronze and I am loving it already.
So this month the box was a $118. Yes, this box is amazing!
First up the Farmacy Green Clean Makeup Meltaway Cleansing Balm smells amazing! It’s got a nice fresh clean scent that smells like lime to me which makes sense because it has lime, bergamot and orange. It also has Sunflower and ginger root oils to remove make-up.
I love that this product is a balm. I just grab a little bit on my fingers and rub it on my face. It literally melts away my make-up! Afterwards my face feels fresh, clean and moisturized!
It also has…
Papain, a natural enzyme found in papaya, gently exfoliates to retexture skin and reveal a youthful glow.
Pretty Vulgar is “a vintage makeup line, that was created by a collective flock of cosmetics industry veterans, innovators and makeup artists who wanted to create a brand that embodies the fact that people are beautiful multifaceted contradictions“.
What’s to love?
First up the packaging is amazing! The blush case has a Victorian feel. The case looks like an old gold picture frame.
The blush itself is a dusty rose shade and feels super smooth on my skin. This one appears to have sheer texture and is nicely pigmented. I am loving this blush!
See the Pretty Vulgar Make Them Blush in my March 2018 Boxycharm Box video unboxing!
The Girlactik Matte Lip Paint comes in 20 shades and I got the Posh one which is a nice dark peachy shade. The pigment is amazing and it’s really creamy for a matte. I am finding that the new mattes are more moisturizing.
I also love the scent, it’s a great sugar cookie scent and I got good staying power.
