Makeup On Pointe: December 2016 Boxycharm

Hi everyone! I hope you all had a very safe and happy holiday and are excited for 2017 to begin. I don’t know about you, but I’ve just about had it with 2016! Plus new years are always exciting to me, even if I never follow through on my resolutions.

Today’s post is a very belated Boxycharm unboxing! I was supposed to have gotten this up last Wednesday, but life caught up with me a little too hard and I totally put it off until it was too late, but oh well.


The theme for this month’s box was Makeup On Pointe, which I thought was pretty cute, despite the fact that the items I received don’t particularly remind me of ballet. Is that just me? I feel like a ballet-themed box should have more softer colors and not a dark purple lipstick and dark red nail polish. They hit the nail right on the head with the eyeshadow palette, though!


Anyway, enough chit chat. The biggest item in this box was the Buff Collection palette by Pure Cosmetics. This palette retails for $50 and is basically a Naked 3 dupe, so I won’t be keeping it since I already have and love Naked 3.

Next, we got the IBY Beauty lip liner in the color Rosebud. I probably own ten million other colors like this, but I do love me some lip liner so it’s going straight to my stash!


Then we have the mini Make Up Eraser, which seems cute and I’m excited to try it! It does seem a bit too good to be true, so I guess I’ll have to test it and find out for myself. We’ll see!

One of the items I was most excited about was the Butter London nail polish in the color Ruby Murray. This color is just perfect for winter (even if I am in Florida) and it’s definitely going on my nails when I have time to sit down and do them!


Last but not least, I received the OFRA liquid lipstick in the color Napa Valley and while I do love OFRA, this color is too far past my comfort zone and I’d never wear it, so it’s going in a pile of things to sell/get rid of.

So that’s it for today! What did you think of this month’s Boxycharm?
