Beauty Boxes

May Boxycharm

Boxycharm is here and I couldn’t be happier! I’ve seen so many sneak peeks and I have been waiting patiently for today to come. I felt like a little kid on Christmas when my mailman came today. I ran to get the box and opened it immediately!

This month we were sent so many goodies, I can’t wait to use these products in the different makeup looks I do! The first thing that caught my eye was the Pretty Vulgar Gel Eyeliner! It’s full size and Pretty Vulgar is a brand name at Sephora that I’ve tried before!

I got a Cover FX Blurring Primer in the box, I tried it on my hand and it feels silky smooth. It almost feels like the silicone based primers I own. I usually don’t use tinted primers like this one, so I think it will be interesting to see how this one works.

I then got brushes in this month’s Boxycharm. The brushes consisted of a blush brush, an eyebrow brush, an eyeliner brush, and an angled eyeshadow brush. The brushes are from the company Aesthetica which is a brand I have never personally heard of before. The brushes seem soft but the furrule and the handle of the brushes seem cheap. A downside to these brushes, they have a very strong chemical scent.

I also received a PÜR Cosmetics Sculpting palette. It has two champagne colored highlighter shades and two contour shades. There were cool and warm tone colors for each highlighter and contour. I swatched them and they were very pigmented, the highlighters were also very creamy!

I swatched the product I was most excited for, the Pretty Vulgar Gel Eyeliner! I used the eyeliner brush provided, which worked well. The eyeliner was jet black, creamy, and easy to work with (which is hard to find in gel eyeliners). I am super excited to add this to my makeup collection and can not wait to use it!

Lastly, I wasn’t sure about this product from Beauty Creations. This is another brand I have never heard of before! I was not sure how to feel about the product being a matte lip gloss. I felt that this name was a complete oxymoron because matte is supposed to be flat with no shine and gloss is supposed to have a shine to it. Very weird but the color of the matte lip gloss is super cute!

I hope you enjoyed this post and comment down below what your thoughts are on the name matte lip gloss!
