This month’s theme is “Makeup is ART” - here's the first look!
This box comes with slight variations, this is just one of them.

Product card!

The Brow Gal Convertible Brow in 02 - ($35 US)
The Convertible Brow is a powder/pomade duo that acts as a powder when used dry and a pomade when used wet to fill in and apply color and definition to the brows. All colors were hand mixed by founder Tonya Crooks with three compact: One for Dark Hair, one for Medium Hair and one for Light Hair. Each compact has a warm, neutral, and ash tone to allow you to mix and match your perfect, custom color. 
Ahhhh! I am SO excited to receive this product. I’ve been wanting to change up my brow game lately and now I have the chance! This palette is the perfect colour, and I can’t wait to get started experimenting with it. 

Crown Pro Round Contour Brush - ($25 US)
This super soft paddle brush can be used with any liquid, powder, or cream product for a full coverage application. 
Okay, if I’m going to give contouring a try I might as well have the proper tools. This brush is made by Crown Brushes specifically for Boxycharmers and it is in their Pro Series for makeup professionals. It seems to be made well and comes with a protective cap.

Temptu Liquid Glow - ($24 US) 
In this Limited Edition collaboration with Boxy Charm, TEMPTU introduces Liquid Glow, its first hand-applied liquid highlighter. Formulated to deliver a radiantly luminous complexion, or to illuminate all over, this long-lasting formula is designed in a rose gold hue that flatters every skin tone and creates a natural, lit-from-within glow.
I’ve said it before; I LOVE highlighter. Though, liquid highlighter is new to me. I’m used to using powder highlighter. I’m excited to watch some tutorials and give this a try. I’ve received the Temptu liquid bronzer in a previous Boxycharm box, but it was too dark for me.

The BrowGal Brow Brush - ($14 US)
The double ended brow brush was designed to allow for precision and creating hair-like strokes, while filling in the brows.
This brow brush pairs perfectly with the above convertible brow palette. I can’t wait to test it out.

IBY Beauty Highlight & Contour Palette - Full Size ($40 US)
Sculpt, define, and illuminate your features with the Highlight and Contour Palette. Chic and portable, this PRO-approved kit comes in 6 versatile shades. 
I love highlighter, but contouring intimidates me. This kit comes with an information insert and I plan to use it to get my contouring skills up to snuff. The shades can be layered so this palette is fantastic for any skin tone.

Lastly, super random, but awesome - we received a coupon $35 off your first box from Hello Fresh.
(Jill: Hello Fresh now ships to Canada! Check out my review here and find a fantastic promo code.)

The May Boxycharm included five full size products valued at $138.00 US. The value is fantastic again this month and there’s a nice variety of makeup products. This box costs $26 US per month, including shipping to Canada. At first, I did not quite understand the theme “Makeup is ART”, but after taking time to research and look at each product, I get it: eyebrows, contouring and highlighting are all like art. It takes some skill to do it. This is easily the best box I have received from Boxycharm so far and I am excited to get experimenting. I love everything I received.
