BEST OF 2017: Boxycharm Boxes

December 29, 2017

To wrap up the year, I wanted to do an overview of different favorites I had throughout 2017. For this post, I’m putting the Boxycharms I received each month up against each other to determine which was best! Although I did not have a full year’s worth of boxes, I still feel this will be beneficial for people to see how the overall boxes compared to each other. We are going back from July to now. Each box can receive 5 crowns, and each product is worth 1 crown. If you want to explore each box more, click on the title of the box and the link will bring you to my unboxing of each. Let’s see how each box ranks!

JULY BOX: Cutie Pie
1. Blinc Elecrtic Eyes Palette 
Beautiful range of eyeshadow colors, highly pigmented
2. ColourPop Ultra-Satin Lip 
Stained my lips afterwards, feathers badly
3. BareMinerals Invisible Light Translucent Powder Duo 
Great for traveling, sets makeup nicely
4. WinkyLux Uni-Brow Universal Eyebrow Pencil 
Color worked for my hair, love the spooly on the end to blend out harsh lines
5. Project Beauty Spray, Set, Go Makeup Setting Spray 
Did a great job setting my makeup, the nozzle mists the product on finely

Overall: ♛♛♛♛♕ 4/5

AUGUST BOX: Beach Please
1. Royal and Langnickel Moda Pro 3-Piece Brush Set 

Soft brushes, feel very high quality in weight, work well for blending
2. Bellapierre Waterproof Gel Eye Liner 

Not pigmented at all, pulls at the eye 
3. PUR Pro Eyelashes 

Beautiful eyelashes that give a lot of drama, soft and easy to apply 
4. Aloette Face Paint 

Difficult to not make streaky, not the most flattering color
5. Tarte Rainforest of the Sea: Volume II Eyeshadow Palette

Beautiful colors that would work well for many skintones, easy to work with, blendable

Overall: ♛♛♛♕♕ 3/5

1. PUR Soiree Diaries Eyeshadow Palette 

Best eyeshadow palette I’ve received to date, easy to blend, amazing shade range
2. MAC Eyebrow Pencil 

Great color for me, fine tip pencil makes it easy to create hair like strokes
3. Colourpop Ultra Satin Lip 

Much better shade than the first sent, doesn’t stain lips, easy to wear, not drying
4. Studio Makeup Loose Blush 

Beautiful color, easier to apply than you would think 
5. BareMinerals Face Perfecting Brush 

Blends out foundation well, easy to clean
6. Don’t Despair Repair Deep Conditioning Mask 

Did not try, not a product I would really use

Overall: ♛♛♛♛♛ 5/5

OCTOBER BOX: Spellbound
1. Dr. Brandt Poredermabrasion 

Great exfoliater, leaves my skin feeling very soft
2. Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter 

Best product in the box, creamy and blinding highlight, shade would work well on many skin tones
3. Tarte Tarteist Quick Dry Matte Lip Paint 

Did not use, not a great color for my lips
4. Dirty Little Secrets Eyeshadow Chubby 

Works great as an eyeshadow base, can also be used alone
5. Jonteblu Lip Liner Pencil 

Not a product I reach for

Overall: ♛♛♛♕♕ 3/5

NOVEMBER BOX: Sweater Weather
1. Luxie Beauty Quad Eye Travel Set 

Great quality brushes, soft and easy to use
2. Cover Fx Illuminating Setting Spray 

Nozzle broke after first use, heard that many others had defective nozzles as well 
3. WinkyLux Kitten Eyeshadow Palette
Great palette with shades that were fun to use, and flattering
4. Laga & Co Cloud Lips 

Like the color, but very patchy 
5. KNC Beauty Collagen Lip Masks 

Only used two of the three, didn’t notice a difference in my lips personally

Overall: ♛♛♕♕♕ 2/5

DECEMBER BOX: Glitz & Glam
1. Real Her Blush Kit 
Great for traveling, variety of colors
2. Bellapierre Pro Concealer Palette 
Did not use, not something I would get good use of
3. Pretty Vulgar My Lips Are Sealed Lightweight Liquid Lipstick ♛
Shade I’m not used to wearing, but love, very easy to apply and comfortable formula
4. Tarte Tarteist Lash Paint Mascara 

Really separates lashes and lengthens, love the formula
5. Crown Brush Deluxe Blush Brush 

Soft dense brush, great for contouring

Overall: ♛♛♛♛♕ 4/5

The Best Boxycharm of 2017 was the September Box! Although the box had one product I did not use, it included 6, which gave more opportunity for products that do work! I absolutely love the Boxycharm subscription service, and really looked forward to getting my box each month. I’m very excited to see what they send to us in 2018.

    Love your honesty! I don’t think we get Boxy Charm here in South Africa, sounds like a gorgeous idea!
