Boxycharm November 2014 “Sparkle and Shine” box.

MicaBeauty Eye Primer – This eye primer is a thick cream. It’s supposed to be waterproof. It claims to even out skin tone, probably because it’s a nude shade and is fairly opaque. It blends in to my skin tone nicely but it might be too light on very dark skin tones. I’m pretty devoted to Urban Decay’s eye primers but I’ll definitely give this a shot. This product is full size and retails for $44.95.

OFRA Cosmetics Pressed Blush in Paradise Pink – This blush is highly pigmented! It suggests that you can apply it dry or wet. It has a teensy tiny bit of shimmer to it, but I find that that’s not very noticeable once it’s on the skin. This is full size and retails for $24.95.

Tarina Tarantino Eyelicity Glitter Liner in Glitter Mist – This is a liquid eyeliner packed with micro-glitter. I wish the brush was a little finer but it applies fairly nicely and is very pigmented. This shade looks very white in the tube but on my skin it’s got a pinky pearl to it. It photographs fairly silver. This is full size and retails for $16.

Kevin.Murphy Color.Bug in Purple – This claims to be a color pad that wipes color on, but mine looks like a hunk of chalk in a plastic that you wipe on… there doesn’t appear to be a pad. Other than that it seems like normal hair chalk. I’m not a big hair chalk user so this might get swapped… I haven’t decided yet. I like the color, I just don’t know that I’ll use it. This is full size and retails for $20.

bellapierre Shimmer Powder in Tin Man – This is a mineral pigment powder with intense pigmentation. The base shade is somewhere between a silver and a gunmetal and it’s got silver glitter. It’s fallout prone, but absolutely gorgeous! This is full size and retails for $14.99.

Here are swatches in two (awful, sorry) lighting conditions:

I’m really happy with this box. It’s got a retail value of about $121 which is a great deal! I’ll use almost all of the products (still not decided about the Color.Bug, but even still it’s a huge value.
