How have I been subscribed to Boxycharm for three months already?! In today’s post, I’ll be doing an unboxing of the Boxycharm November 2019 box.
Dominique Cosmetics – Celestial Thunder Eyeshadow Palette | $35.00, CF
This month’s box included a mini version of the Dominque Cosmetics Celestial Storm Eyeshadow Palette. I am bitter that I received the Celestial Thunder Palette because already own the Dominique Cosmetics Celestial Storm Eyeshadow Palette.
As a result, I will not swatch this or use this palette at all. Unfortunately, this palette did not come in a box. Therefore, I am unsure whether I’ll try to sell this palette at a steep discount or whether I’ll save it for a giveaway.
Kypris – Antioxidant Dew Quench & Glow Serum | $90.00, CF
The Kypris Antioxidant Dew Quench & Glow Serum claims to soothe and nurture the skin. Also, the formula promises to hydrate the skin and leave it with a refreshed glow. Overall, I am excited to try this serum.
Dose of Colors – Liquid Matte Lipstick (Nude Mood) | $18.00, CF
Dose of Colors has one of the most hyped liquid lipstick formulas on the market. While I love the brand’s glosses, the liquid lipsticks are still new to me.
Color-wise, I am relieved that I received one of the neutral shades advertised by Boxycharm. For context, I received a strange orange lipstick from MAC in the September 2019 Boxycharm. Moreover, I STRUGGLED to sell that lipstick at less than half the price!
Tula Skincare – Star Power Nourishing & Brightening Cosmic Hydrogel Mask (Set of 2) | $22.00, CF
Tula is a brand I long to try. That being said, I do not enjoy typically sheet masks. Will I keep these? Yes. However, I’m not excited to own these masks.
[Future me: I used the Tula masks and the results blew me away. Again, I do not buy sheet masks. However, these left a radiant glow!]
Boxycharm – 2-Piece Brush Set | $35.00, CF
Aesthetic-wise, these 2-piece brushes from Boxycharm are objectively ugly. Moreover, the top of both brushes is large with densely packed bristles.
The large brush promises to provide perfect for liquid, cream, and powder application. Meanwhile, he smaller brush is for foundation application.
Finally, I do not believe that these brushes are worth $35.00. Luxie and Sigma both sell more affordable brushes. Also, their brushes look much better.
BECCA Ultimate Coverage 24 Hour Foundation Complexion Pack
At first, I was livid when I thought that this dinky sample was the fifth item in my box. However, I changed my mind once I read the Boxycharm November 2019 pamphlet.
Charmers received one of two foundation samplers to help Boxycharm better understand its subscribers’ complexions. Supposedly, this will help subscribers receive complexion products that are better matched in future boxes. I am so curious to see if Boxycharm starts including foundations or concealers in future boxes.
Final Thoughts on the Boxycharm November 2019 Box
So how did the Boxycharm November 2019 box stack up?
I am beyond bitter about this month’s Boxycharm. Although the Kypris serum is the “big-ticket” item, the eyeshadow palette is clearly intended to bring the WOW factor. To be fair, if I didn’t own the full-size Dominque Cosmetics Palette I’d be less bitter.
Of the items I received, I am most excited to try the Kypris serum and the Dose of Colors Liquid Lipstick. I will use the Tula Skincare masks and the Boxycharm brushes, but I’m not excited about them. I wish I had received something else in the November 2019 box.
At this point, I am torn on whether I’ll keep my subscription. I’m toying with canceling it after the six-month subscription period. However, part of me is also toying with upgrading to Boxycharm Premium. This month’s premium box looked incredible!
Rating the Boxycharm November 2019 box: 3/5 stars
