Remember how I said I wanted to try out new beauty subscription services? I have a realllyyyy good one to share with you guys! You've probably heard of it and that's okay, but bear with me because you remember how excited you were when you got your first one right? RIGHT?! Okay, so this is all aboutBoxycharm which I've been seeing on so many blogs and YouTube channels lately. I finally broke down and placed my order for the February Box which is themed for Valentine's Day.

This month I got...
From Modern Minerals, Duo Fiber Mini Round Brush. This brush is superrrr soft and perfect for detail work on the eyes. Makeup brushes of good quality are always a win! Full size.
From Mullein & Sparrow, Mini Facial Mask. The packaging on this is adorable. Very message in a bottle but with a face mask which is even better. This is said to be detoxifying and also gently exfoliates. I haven't gotten a chance to use it but I seriously might just use it for bathroom decor. It's sleek and begging to be displayed! Deluxe Size.
From ncLA, Nail Lacquer in Heart Attack. I'm obsessed with glitter in shapes other than the usual round, hex and square. While this was a major PITA to work with because they hearts just wanted to float around all willy nilly you can always scoop some out on a paper towel and use a dotting tool or Q-tip to place. It's a bit extra work but in the end so fun it's worth it. Plus, how often will you really wear heart glitter? Every day I wouldn't want to deal, but once or twice a year it's okay. Full size.

From Jing Ai, Velvet Shine Lip Jewel. The shade I got is Pink a Boo and it's a barbie pink satin. Slight gloss, but enough matte to it that you should probably exfoliate your lips before you wear it. This is a fantastic shade for Spring! Full size.
From Mistura Beauty Solutions, C-2-P Complexion Corrector. The shade I got is a little dark for me (though it says all skin tones I just do NOT see how that is possible), which is disappointing because it's a full size item from this box that I definitely won't use. It feels creamy and appears to cover well though because it was so dark it left an orange cast to my skin. Too bad it's not my shade =( Full size.
My first box was kinda wonderful, I must say! It's not the best one I've seen people get but it's certainly loaded up with products I am loving (minus the orange corrector). With the retail value of the products being at $105.00 for 4 full-size and 1 deluxe-size I'd call this one a win and am definitely keeping my subscription going into March.
