November 2017 Subscription Box Review – BoxyCharm and Sephora

BoxyCharm November 2017 – Value $120.00

BoxyCharm x Luxie – Quad Eye Travel Set Brushes
While I wouldn’t really purchase Luxie brushes, I have received a few in different subscription boxes and I do like them. I would have preferred to get full sized brushes, but I can see myself using 1-2 of these regularly. All of Luxie’s brushes are vegan and cruelty free too!

CoverFX – Illuminating Setting Spray
I was really stoked about this because it is one of my best friend’s favorite setting sprays. I had recently visited her, tried it out, and decided to buy it. Then,  two days, later BoxyCharm released a preview of this product! The is glitter in this spray so it may not be for everyone.

KNC Beauty – All-Natural Collagen Infused Lip Mask – set of 3
I have not tried these out yet, I’m saving them for special occasions. 🙂

Laqa & Co – Cloud Lip – Storm
I really like this formula – it’s like a very pigmented matte balm. It’s really comfortable, wears for a few hours, and fades very evenly. I didn’t like the deep berry color that was in my box, but the formula is spot on.

Winky Lux – Kitten Palette
First of all, this packaging, whoever designed it deserves and A+ because I was sucked right in. All of the shadows are on the drier side, but not unworkable. If you go too hard on the mattes, they can blend away, and the shimmers are nice, but not intense.

Sephora PLAY! November 2017 – Value $50.00

Caudalie – Vinosource SOS Thirst Quenching Serum
I’ve been using this as my AM serum for 4-5 days now and I’m not blown away but I also don’t think a serum is something you can really get a good grasp on with a small sample. This a basically grape water and hyaluronic acid, so you might want to check it out if you’re in the market for a new hyaluronic acid!

Marc Jacobs – Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara
I’ve gotten quite a few samples in the past and it’s is a solid volumizing mascara (but not really worth the price tag).

MoroccanOil – Moroccan Oil Treatment
I love this oil so much EXCEPT it’s filled with silicone and I’ve been weaning those out of my hair routine so I will be passing it along. But it does literally miracles for dry, frizzy hair.

Origins – Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask to Clear Pores
I have used this mask on and off for years and I really like it. It does a great job of pulling gunk out of the skin so be sure to use it when you don’t have anything special going on because it will pull some clogged pores to a head
This month’s Play! also came with a high pigment Sephora brand gloss (bad color, tasted like vanilla poisoned chemicals) and a Burberry Brit sample, both of which I have thrown out. Bad blogger.

I’ve been slowly curating my cart for weeks because I can go a little crazy sometimes and make impulsive purchases just because they are on sale! This year I’ve picked out a few special items, a few essentials, and I even got suckered into a Sephora Favorites box!

Visart Warm Neutral Eyeshadow Palette – This was the first thing to go into my cart! A Visart palette was in and out of my cart 100 times last year and completely regretted it. I don’t own anything by the brand yet, but the Warm Neutral Palette looks like a fantastic everyday palette for me.

Bobby Brown Vitamin Enriched Face Based Moisturizer – This was one of the first high end skincare products I ever purchased almost 10 years ago! I haven’t bought it again since that first tub and my skin has changed a lot, but I decided kind of nostalgically to try it again. I will probably use it as a primer in addition to my current routine, rather than using it in place of my moisturizer.

Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask – I usually pick up a lip mask every sale because winter is coming. The past years I’ve bought the Bite Beauty Agave Mask and the Fresh Mask and I wasn’t really blown away by either so I’m excited to try something new!

Jo Malone London Basil and Neroli Cologne – I’m a little nervous about this purchase because I have only smelled this perfume and it was months ago… but I loved it and I couldn’t stop smelling myself throughout the day! I hope it’s as wonderful as I remember – earthy and citrusy and fresh.

Briogio Ultimate Hair Goals Kit – I was planning on stocking up on the the Briogio Don’t Despair Repair Mask and this kit is the same price and an 8oz jar and includes an 8oz jar of the mask plus 3 deluxe samples of their Rosarco Blow Dry Perfection and Heat Protectant Creme, Rosarco Milk Reparative Leave-in Conditioning Spray, and Scalp Revival Charcoal + Coconut Oil Micro-Exfoliating Shampoo. I know I like the leave-in conditioner and I am really excited to try the shampoo because my scalp get so dry and flakey in the winter!

Briogio Don’t Despair Repair Gel-to-Oil Overnight Treatment – This is meant to hydrate, strengthen, smooth, and soften the hair – my hair and scalp is hella dry and damaged and I’ve never tried an overnight treatment. I like the brand because it’s silicone free so I feel like their conditioning products actually do something more than just coating the hair.

Sephora Favorite Soko to Tokyo – I have never bought a Sephora Favorites box before because I usually feel like there’s 2-3 products I like and the rest will most likely go to waste. This box is perfection! It’s a combination of products I know I love (Tatcha Polished and belif True Cream Aqua Bomb) and products that I really want to try (SKII Facial Treatment Essence).

Honorable Mention: ABH Subculture – I’m in LOVE with these colors but I’m not sure if I can handle the formula – I’m just not sure if I can work with it so it’s hanging out in my cart and I will probably just decided as I’m checking out…

Update: Between writing and posting, the Sephora Favorites Soko to Tokyo has gone out of stock and Kevin Aucoin The Sculpting Contour Powder and snuck into my cart.
