Boxycharm May 2019 Unboxing (Theme: Make Waves) (Alamar Cosmetics, Glam Glow, Dose of Colors, Ciate, Bodyography)

My May Boxycharm showed up and I was so excited to get into the box. Throughout the month I keep an eye on spoilers and possible variations in the boxes, and this month there seemed to be a lot of variations and it was truly a surprise when I got mine. Each month Boxycharm gives you 4 or 5 full-size products, you will find some products that every charmer receives and some products are variations; so not every subscriber will receive it. Each month the boxes are also given a theme and this month was 'Make Waves." Let's get into the box...

Glamglow Gentlebubble Cleanser MSRP 28.00$

I've never tried any products from Glamglow and I do enjoy trying new cleansers. This product claims to effectively cleanse the skin and dissolve your makeup. It's recommended for all skin types, and will apparently bubble up when deep cleaning the skin. I'm interested to see if this will be a "one and done" makeup remover and cleanser. I usually double cleanse my skin. This was a product that every subscriber received.

Alamar Colorete Blush Trio Fair-Light MSPR 22.00$

Alamar Cosmetics is another brand that I have never tried. Boxycharm did have the first eyeshadow palette in a past box, but I was not a subscriber at the time. This product was a variation item and I was so excited to see it in my box. I love blush palettes and these tones are perfect for me. I've heard Kathleenlights mention this brand because her first is the owner and she was a past Boxycharm employee. After trying this brush, I want to try the eyeshadow palettes as well.

Ciate London Eye Luster Creme Eyeshadow MSPR 22.00$

I was interested in this product because liquid shadows have been on my radar lately. I love the dimension they give to the eyes. This can be swiped on with the doe foot for a fuller coverage or blended out as a topper. I haven't tried it yet, but I will be reviewing this. There were two shade variations in the box, I have the shade cupid.

Dose of Colors Liquid Matte Lipstick MSPR 18.00$

I was going to mention this is another brand I haven't tried but all of these brands are new to me which is why I love Boxycharm. As a Canadian, it's easier to try out these brands without paying high shipping costs. This liquid lipstick is in the shade Merlot and it seems like a bright red, I don't know if I will try this out or put it aside for something else. I really wish Boxycharm let us customize our lip selections since they've introduced customization into the boxes. I love sheer or nude lip shades, and this seems too bright for me.

Bodyography Eyeliner Pencil MSPR 14.00$

This is a wood pencil and I received Midnight Blue which seems like a pretty colour. I haven't tried it yet but it claims to be long wearing and applies smoothly.

That was my Boxycharm this month. I'm excited to give these a try. The box total was 104$ US, approx 140$ Canadian and I paid 35$ Canadian including the shipping. It also ships pretty quickly and I've never paid customs on a box. If you're interested you can use my referral link for Boxycharm. I've really been enjoying these boxes. If you see any products you want reviews for, please let me know. Next month I upgraded the box, and will talk about the Boxyluxe experience.

  6. I love the box every month. They are doing great. But I was sad that I did not receive the Glamglow cleanser, instead there is some moisturizer. :-)
