Secrets – Boxycharm 3 Months Subscription
I’ve been withholding some information for the past several months. In December, I made a resolution for the upcoming new year. That resolution was to pack away a heftier monthly savings and to accomplish that, I would have to limit my spending on unnecessary “wants”. I cancelled ALL of my subscription boxes, including one of my favorites, Boxycharm.
My mistake was not to unfollow them on Instagram. I was able to see the sneak peek of a few of the products and seeing the OFRA Cosmetics Long Lasting Liquid Liquid in a gorgeous matte mocha color and a Bella Pierre lip liner to match absolutely weakened me. I didn’t give in although I really wanted to! Two days before the end of December, Boxycharm had revealed two of their products that would be included in their January box. I caved in and reactivated my subscription within 15 seconds. You see, one of my favorite mascaras was part of the reveal AND a smoky eyeshadow palette was the other revealed item. How could I not?! I already spend $26 for the mascara alone and I would need to buy another one soon anyway so paying $21 for a subscription for the month of January would’ve been the cheaper option to get that mascara that I would’ve had to purchase anyway. Plus, the gorgeous eyeshadow palette (of which I do have 3 out of 4 of the collection all thanks for Boxycharm) was worth anywhere from $20-$40 depending on sale events and I would’ve spent money to be able to own it, too. I already saved money, basically. Saving money was part of the goal for the year, so yea. Makes sense. The reason I went ahead and bought the 3 month subscription instead of the one month for January was because I figured that I might as well get the OFRA lippie which already costs about $20, one dollar less than the subscription box price and I would be getting 4 other full size products. That makes sense. I have been using the same brand of OFRA lippie in “Laguna Beach” pretty much every day since moving to Maryland. I would’ve bought another one once the one I use daily runs out, which will be soon. The third month, February, had to be bought because they only offered a one month or three month subscription and you know, I needed at least the two months. Made sense!
So now that I’ve explained all of that and my last Boxycharm of the year has arrived (no, really this time) I will be sharing the details on all three boxes with you so you can be reminded of how awesome Boxycharm is and if you’re thinking about getting only ONE beauty box, this is it!
