Boxx Cosmetics Akoko Lipcolor Review and Giveaway!

Boxx Cosmetics is a Canadian beauty company that offers a line of affordable, high quality cosmetics and accessories that are compact, luxurious and beautiful. All cosmetics are made in Canada and feature cutting-edge skincare technology.

Boxx Cosmetics wants to eliminate unnecessary packaging and give you the flexibility in creating your own customized palettes that you can easily store, use every day, and easily take with you when you go on holidays. Create your perfect palette (or palettes!) and never have to worry about storing so much makeup anymore.

There are 2 compacts to chose from. The compacts have a magnetic inside base and can house powders and creams because they have a unique plastic cover that protects the powders and creams from mixing when being used. Once you choose your compact, you just fill it with the lovely products you want. Boxx Cosmetics has everything-corrector/concealers, eyeshadows, blush, bronzers, lip colour and lipshine-even eyebrow shadow and pressed powders too!

I mean it when I say you can build your perfect palette with this line! Up there is a photo of the Boxx, the flagship compact that is fully customizable with its removable pans, magnetic base, and plastic covers that protect cream-based products from powder fallout. isn’t it awesome? I think so! I kind of longingly wish I could get by with just ONE compact of makeup like that sometimes, don’t you? Can you imagine how EASY life would be? Sigh….. 😀

Ok, I have one of Boxx Cosmetics Lipcolours to show you today. It’s called Akoko.

What’s cool about their lipcolors is that they can be used as a cheek stain as well! So if your one of those peoples that loves using their lipstick as a cheek colour, baby this is for you!

Boxx Cosmetics Akoko Lipcolor($18) has hyaluoronic acid spheres to capture water that naturally evaporates from your skin, causing the spheres to swell and plump-up your fine lines. They also have collagen stimulating peptides that work to moisturize and improve lip condition over time.

Swatchy Time!

To be honest, when I saw Akoko in the pan, I thought it was going to be one of those typical rose lipstick shades that I don’t care for. I was SO wrong! It’s such a bright, refreshing rosy shade and I love it!

The formula of Boxx Cosmetics Akoko Lipcolor feels great on the lips. I’d say it’s a satin lipstick as it has some sheen but not too much. It’s pretty comfortable to wear and lasts a long time. It’s not hugely moisturizing, but it’s not drying either. It’s kind of the perfect lipstick actually! I used a lip brush, but you can use your finger for just a wash of colour. And I’m sorry, I don’t have a pic of this on my cheeks due to being sick, but it’s a really great cheek shade too! Fingers work best I found, and it leaves a really pretty, dewey stain on the cheeks that lasts forever. I’m telling ya, I want more of these that’s for sure!

And guess what? Boxx Cosmetics was so kind to send me another Akoko Lipcolor for a giveaway! Wahoo! and thank you Boxx! You guys rock!
