Snowy days in March are like pausing time, wasn't yesterday the first day of spring?
Snowy days in March are for being blissful, content and pushing all of your worries aside for another day. They're for focusing on you,
Snowy days in March are for sleeping in late, drinking warm tea and listening to music, (playlists 1, 2, 3 and 4)
Snowy March days are for taking a deep breath and letting everything simmer down, they're for reading poetry and forgetting who you are for a while,
Snowy days in March are for snuggling up with a fuzzy blanket and watching YouTubers play PUBG (Players Unknown Battle Ground),
They're for smiling, cracking jokes with your little sister and watching the dog roll around confused in the fluffy white stuff outside,
They're for watching Adventure Time, doing simple yoga stretches and avoiding Twitter drama,
They're for painting your nails and eating peach pie,
They're for writing rough drafts, and drawing crappy sketches, and taking polaroid photos...
They're snowy days in March.
This is my first month receiving a BOXYCHARM Box. BOXYCHARM is a monthly makeup subscription box that comes with four to five full size makeup products from various cosmetic companies. The box costs twenty-one bucks for a month and you can get discounts if you buy three or more months.
This months box's theme was 'Baecation' so everything was vacation themed. When you open the box it looks like this:
It included all of the things in the photos, although some subscribers received different variations of the blush color and mascara.
First up: the thing everyone who received the box was most excited for- the BOXYCHARM X PUR eyeshadow palette. The colors are relatively pigmented, and there is a little bit of fall out on the shimmers, but that can be wiped away. There are twelve colors that do remind me of going to the beach. I'm visiting Florida at the end of the month and I'm definitely going to make use of that blue color (Mia) The only problem is that it showed up with the dark brown color (Duet) shattered. However, BOXYCHARM is working with me to get it replaced and they replied pretty quickly!
The Pretty Vulgar blush in Prim Vixin is absolutely gorgeous. It's especially pigmented so don't apply it with a heavy hand! I love the shade it's a true pink, I've worn it both days I've had it in my possession and can't wait to apply it again tomorrow!
The next item in the box was the South Mane Eye Gel Pack. It comes with three packages, and the eye gels are supposed to reduce puffiness, reduce your dark circles and mositurizes the under eye area. I've used two of the three packs and I really like them. I have sensative skin and after wearing them for about five or six miniutes my under eye area burns just enough to know it's there, but granted I have sensative skin. I usually have very puffy eyes in the morning and this did get rid of the swelling and lighten the skin, as well as make under my eyes very soft. I will definitely consider buying them again.
Now for the Vintage Cosmetic Company makeup brush set. The brushes are very soft, but don't pick up very much eyeshadow. You kind of have to pack it on and spend a while blending but it's good to have different sized brushes. They even say "Step 1, 2 and 3" on the handles. (Excuse the colors on the bristles I couldn't get all of the eyeshadow back off since they're white!)
My favorite product in the box was the Bellapierre Volumizing Mascara. It quickly became my new favorite mascara, it makes my eyelashes look even longer. The mascara doesn't dry as quickly as my last mascara did, and I did get it on my eyelid but it's such a nice mascara I'm willing to learn a bit of patience ;).
I got to showcase a look using all of the makeup last night at the theater, my sister and I watched Love, Simon (review coming soon!) on the preimer day. It was really cool to do my makeup the day the box showed up and then head to the theater feeling extra glam!
So overall I really enjoyed the box and definitely want to get another one next month. I'm having tons fo fun with all of my new makeup and BOXYCHARM is working diligently with me to get the eyeshadow palette replaced!
See ya next time! ~Jessy
If you didn't guess by the title, this is my everything blog, where I write about... well everything! You get the idea. The only thing I don't write about here is NASCAR because I have a different blog for that.
