Hello all you glam babes and beaus! We’re back diving into December BoxyLuxe 2020 edition! There is a wide variety of products to cover this month. How many of you received this months box? Did you get Base, Premium, or Luxe?
Bubbles and Glitz
Iconic London | Blaze Chaser Face Palette
An ultra-versatile face palette featuring six shades of butter smooth, velvet powders, that complement all skin tones. This convenient palette contains shades for sculpting and bronzing to add natural looking warmth and definition, blush shades that lift the face and give you that must-have ‘lit from within’ glow, and highlight shades for a flattering candlelit radiance.
Sunday Riley | Good Genes Lactic Acid Treatment
This multi-tasking, targeted lactic acid treatment rapidly exfoliates and boosts naturally youthful radiance, while visibly reducing the look of lines, wrinkles, and dark spots. Its high potency formula exfoliates dull, pore-clogging dead skin cells to instantly clarify and reveal smoother, clearer skin. With skin brightening licorice, this super-concentrated treatment also visually reduces the look of dark spots and discoloration caused by exposure to the sun, for naturally brighter, even-toned skin.
Hipdot | Cenote Pressed Eyeshadow Palette
Unleash your inner goddess through the alluring blues and gleaming golds of Cenote – an homage to the sacred underground pools of Mexico. In this hyper-pigmented palette, you’ll find a mix of mattes and shimmers pulled directly from the magical deep.
Luxie | Glitter and Gold Brush Set
Offering a complete range of brushes for foundation, contouring, highlighting, and blending, this set has all you need to create perfect holiday looks. This fabulous set comes tucked inside a durable, easy to clean, festive red brush pouch.
*I could not find these for sale anywhere other than resale sites. I’m not sure if this was a BoxyCharm special or if they are just currently sold out. So if you’re trying to get your hands on this set, be careful of fakes and scammers. With past experience, you simply can’t go wrong with any Luxie brush. The link associated with the photo will take you to the Luxie site only. Not to this specific product.*

BoxyLuxe is a quarterly subscription for $49.99 for that month. The total retail value of December’s BoxyLuxe is $529.00! That’s a total savings of $479.01! Whether or not you like the products, this is admittedly an amazing value.
For an end of the year blowout, this box just didn’t fully deliver for me. Usually, I’m super excited to try all of the products included. This month just seems like they tried to find the most expensive items the could, and throw them in the box to wow you with the value. Seeing how much some of these things cost, my jaw literally dropped while thinking, Who is paying these prices? The things I’m most excited about are the eyeshadow palette, as I do not really have a blue/green based palette in my collection and is definitely welcomed. The smile kit was my choice product and I’m interested to see if the claims on it are true. Also, Luxie brushes always deliver and I’m a hoarder of brushes, my husband can attest to that.
The face palette is the most disappointing in the fact that it claims to compliment all skin tones, but there is just no way. And while looking up each individual products, this is in fact the only one offered. You would think these days, brands would have the versatility thing down by now. At least offer a light, medium, dark range. But no. Just one. Now, obviously I cannot speak for anyone with darker skin tone than myself, but after testing the product on my fair skin, I can just imagine the disappointment some of my darker babes and beaus must be feeling. This is purely just my opinion. Please let me know in the comments below if it does work for you. I am curious to know.
I saw a lot of people dogging on the Rockins Cosmetics gel pens, and although I don’t think it’s a luxe product as one may think, I do think it is a great way to incorporate an indy brand and to try something new.
At the end of the day I’m not mad at it, and I’m not thrilled. It’s just meh. And that’s ok! I still think BoxyCharm is the best makeup subscription box out there and cannot wait for what 2021 has to offer!

Life is hectic. No matter what you do. For me, well, I’m a mom of two young boys living in the countryside, working a full-time job, married to my best friend, and might be slightly makeup obsessed. I’m here to share my experiences, my fears, my dreams, and what little tips and tricks I’ve picked up along the way.
