Cloudy With a Chance of Charms: April 2016 Boxycharm

Hi loves! Today’s post is my first monthly Boxycharm post where it’s not going up against another beauty box, since I canceled both Birchbox and ipsy and only kept Boxycharm for the time being!

This month’s theme was “Cloudy With a Chance of Charms” because it’s April and you know, April showers bring May flowers! Unless you’re in Florida, where it starts raining in May and doesn’t stop till September. But anyway, I digress.

This month’s Boxycharm brought us five items, all of which are full-size. The first item I got is the pur~lisse Daily Lip Nourisher, which is probably what I was most excited about, after the OFRA lipstick! I tried it on right away (and went a little crazy so my lips were very shiny) but I really like it so far. Next, we have the aforementioned OFRA lipstick in the color Pasadena. I was super excited that we got another OFRA lipstick, and only a little bummed that mine came in the mini tube (even if it still has 8g of product). I already have this color, so I found someone to trade it with and will receive Honolulu soon — and don’t worry, the swatch below is from the one I own and not the one I traded.

Next, we have the blinc Black Lash Primer. I got their mascara a few boxes ago and tried it the one time and while I wasn’t a huge fan, I’m willing to give the mascara and this primer a go before I pass it on to my sister, the true mascara junkie in our family. And for the last two items, we have a yourMinerals Eye Glimmer in Brown Hypnotic and an Anderson Lilley Manhattan Beach Butter Hand Cream.

And here we have some swatches! The eye glimmer is on the left, and fairly pigmented considering it was applied dry, and the lipstick on the right.

So now tell me — do you have Boxycharm? Thanks for reading!
