March Boxycharm Reviews:
RealHer LadyLove Matte Liquid Lipstick
Can I just say “WOW”?! I was so impressed by the packaging and presentation of this lipstick! It’s a very modern, black & white, square lipstick that is very sharp and edgy. Such a sophisticated look! I got the shade “I deserve the Best”, which is a light pink-neutral pink color. It is such an easy color to wear anywhere and anytime! Its’ formula is paraben free and it is infused with Shae Butter and contains only natural ingredients. It is a liquid lipstick but dries really well and quickly and become matte. It glides on smoothly and is not clumpy. (I would recommend avoiding pursing lips together as it dries-it is very sticky). Over all it is so beautiful and affordable. I would highly recommend purchasing this lipstick for an everyday, easy and quick application. It has quickly become my “go-to” lipstick as I am running out the door to run errands or whatnot. You can buy one here for about $15.

Naked Cosmetics Urban Rustic Palette
This little adorable palette has three very beautiful, large shadows. They are pigmented and are so gorgeous for Fall. The colors are Urban Rustic 03 Green, Urban Rustic 02 Bronze, and an Urban Rustic 04 Maroon color. This palette is worth about $40.
I have all of Naked Cosmetics Eye Shadow Palettes and they are all amazing. I did not however have these three colors. Like I’ve mentioned above, they are huge. So a little goes a long way-it will last me for ever! I was really sad when the box arrived and the bronze shadow had cracked a bit. So I went ahead and transferred the shadows to my Z Palette because they had quickly become Fall favorites. The maroon color is hard to find, so I was very glad to finally had come across one. Since these are pigmented, I actually damp my brush a little to create a more dramatic look. The particular color combo in this palette can be used all together or each shadow, individually. You can purchase yours here.
Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer
This primer is absolutely my favorite now. It smoothed out my little blemishes and my makeup looks flawless. I love how the foundation glides on the thin layer of protection without cracking or looking too cakey. My skin is very prone to irritation when trying out new products I am not use to and this formula that Smashbox has, it actually works for me and I have not been breaking out. It really does help with big pores and red spots that are hard to conceal. This is a travel size but will go along ways because you only have to use a pea drop. I don’t think I’ll be using anything other than Smashbox primer from now on. You can get yours here, you won’t regret it. It works very well in conjunction with the Urban Decay Makeup Setting Spray.
Crown SS023 Jumbo Kabuki Fan Brush
I have been purchasing Crown brushes lately; I just feel like they are the most affordable brushes out there that are not high-end and ridiculously over priced, but are also way better than drug store brushes. This particular Fan brush is a very soft bristled brush, designed for light application of highlighter and blush. I usually always use a fan brush to apply highlighter and blush just because it is easier to maneuver. The softness of this brush is beneficial to light application; you can’t get too much product on with this brush. I am very happy with the way it does the job and you can get it for about $19 on Crowns website. It is definitely one of my most useful and most used brushes.
Charmed Ultra Longwear Mechanical Lip Pencil by Starlooks.
I’ll be honest, I was not crazy about this lip pencil. Although the color is absolutely a gorgeous-deep, dusty rose color, I did not have luck with application of it. My lips tend to be dry and the pencil texture was very oily, very crayon like. I could not get it on my lips very well at first. I had to keep trying and once I got it on my lips, it is actually a very pretty shade. It ended up staying on my lips for a very long time and enhanced the way my favorite Buttercup nude lipstick looked. You can buy one here for $20. I do not think it is worth $20. But hey who knows, maybe it’ll work for you because we all have different lips!
Stay tuned for more Boxycharm reviews. I strongly believe signing up for a monthly subscription is really worth it, especially if you’re really into makeup and love trying out new products.
