Picture this: I was just sitting at home, aimlessly scrolling through Instagram, when all of a sudden, a notification pops up! It’s a picture posted by the Boxycharm Instagram account and it says I’ve been tagged in it, so I click on the link, only to find out I won the exclusive Boxycharm OFRA giveaway for the month of July and will be the lucky recipient of the OFRA x dupethat collaboration highlighters!
It took a little bit to figure out how to get these highlighters to me, but once I figured it out, I knew they would be waiting for me when I came back from my trip to Chile, and they were! So of course, the first thing I did was grab my camera and document this momentous occasion. Thanks to Boxycharm and OFRA for making this happen!
How awesome is this? I won the giveaway by posting a picture on my Instagram with the hashtag for the month. To be completely honest, I did this very mindlessly and completely forgot about it later, so I was definitely surprised when I found out I won, but very excited nevertheless! And how sweet is that note?
The giveaway was for the two different OFRA x dupethat highlighters, a collab that was released last year with the girls from the famous dupethat Instagram and website! They released two highlighters: You Dew You, a beautiful golden, peachy tone, and You Glow Girl, an amazing pink shimmer.
Here are some swatches, because I know you wanted to see them: You Dew You (top) and You Glow Girl (bottom). I actually wanted these really really badly, but since they retail for almost 25 dollars, I decided to only get one and purchased it during last year’s Black Friday sale. I love the highlighter but the original packaging is really bulky, so I’m selling it (if anyone is interested, hit me up) and I decided to keep the new packaging for myself!
The giveaway also included the highlighters in the smaller godet pans, which are perfect for the Z palette I have with another OFRA highlighter and an OFRA banana powder, since I’m using my OFRA magnetic palette for my MUG and OFRA eyeshadows! (I may or may not have a thing about keeping different size pans in different palettes.)
Thank you so so so much to Boxycharm for this amazing giveaway! I’m so glad I decided to keep Boxycharm as my predominant beauty subscription — I haven’t regretted that decision at all since March, when I canceled my Birchbox and ipsy! Now I’ll need to make sure to enter the giveaways every month. ;)
