I got my Boxycharm really late this month. It sat for 5 days in a distribution center, before being passed off to the USPS carrier. At first, this box was a bit of a letdown, but then I started to brighten considerably as my boyfriend offered a new perspective. I love doing these boxes with him and sharing as I feel like he gets caught up in my excitement for new items to play with. He doesn’t feel free to wear makeup and explore that side of himself while we are living with his family, but he has talked about buying a vanity big enough for two and how excited he is when we move out to get back into experimenting again. The excitement of moving out is getting very real as his first paycheck from his new job is around the corner.
Saturday Skin Yuzu Vitamin C Bright Eye Cream, 15ml for $32
We already have 2 eye creams open currently, but it looks like our morning one will be gone pretty soon. I am super excited to try out a Saturday Skin product as I haven’t tried anything from the brand yet. It sounds perfect to use in the mornings and I love the holographic orange on the lid. This will go in the backstock until it is ready to be opened.
Yensa Tone Up Primer Essential Glow, 30ml for $35
My boyfriend is excited to try out this primer. I just bought myself a BECCA primer, so I thought that I would let him have this one. Plus, glowy primers are up his alley, while I am not 100% on the glow train. Primer is one of those products that I go through fairly easily and I know he is the same way. He also doesn’t have a glowy primer currently, so this will be a good addition to his budding collection.
Alleyoop Multi-Tasker-4-in-1 Makeup Brush for $28
I love how soft the blush brush is and it is always nice to have more eyeshadow brushes. We don’t really travel, but we do have a trip in the works for this year. This will come in handy for that if I even end up wearing makeup. The sponge part is weird and hard. It would probably be best dry for baking or applying undereye concealer.
Estate Cosmetics Precision Felt Tip Liquid Liner, $12
Another black eye liner. I will throw this into the backstock in case one of our eye liners is dried out when we go to use it. I will only keep 2 backups, one for each of us, at a time. There is no need to keep more of them unless we were really using them and we currently don’t really wear liquid eye liner.
Stila Huge Extreme Lash Mascara for $23
This came just in time for me, because I have recently used up my previous mascara and I didn’t have any left. I am unsure about the short bristles, but I am willing to give it a try. I really love to wear mascara. It is something that I wear every single day and I have been missing it in my makeup routine. I am happy to have a new tube to try out. I’m not loyal to any particular mascara.
This box is a bit on the lower said at $130, but I love the eye cream. The value of the eye cream pays for the box itself. I’m not mad at it. I would give it 3/5 for excitement and I would give it 5/5 for value as we will use everything.

Ooh nice haul ! I like the holographic orange on the cream . It looks so cute . Also stila mascara looks interesting
The Stila wand is hard to work with. I’ve been using the tip end and using a lash comb to get out any clumps. It doesn’t smudge or flake on me though, which is nice.
Aw that’s a but lame but I’ve had that issue with some other wands as well .
Oooh, that multitasker brush!!! I love that Stila mascara but my eyes are small so I found it hard to work with personally.
Me too. I am trying to make it work, but I’ve only been using it when going out as it is too much effort for daily use. As soon as I get another mascara, I will be decluttering this.
