It is that time again, for my favorite beauty subscription to arrive! Who doesn’t love getting full size products? Since Boxycharm almost never disappoints, I hope this month continues the pattern.

Let’s jump to the products:

TEMPTU x BoxyCharm Liquid Glow Hand Applied Highlighter

I have gotten a lot of liquid highlighters lately, but I am not mad about it! This one by Temptu was specially created just for Boxycharm subscribers. I love getting limited edition items, it makes them seem more fancy! This highlighter is a rose gold shade and is VERY thin and liquid-y. When pouring from the the bottle you get a lot out at once, far more than you need so be careful. When applied to the skin I got more of a sheen than the rose gold color, but I was pleased with the end result . I love using liquid highlighters underneath my foundation for a lit from within glow. This will be a summer staple!

IBY Powder Highlight & Contour Palette

If you are a true beauty fanatic you should have a contour palette in your collection. This is such an awesome product to receive in a beauty subscription box! I already have a few palettes like this in my arsenal but I am stoked to add another. This palette comes with three highlight shades and three contour shades. The powders are extremely soft and pigmented but still blend like a dream. They build up a realistic finish on the skin to give you a sculpted look. I really enjoyed my makeup after using this product. They also included a little cheat sheet on how to use the palette if the whole contouring craze is too confusing (which it can be for all of us)!

Paddle Brush from Crown

This brush is mimicked after the famous (and ridiculously expensive) Artis Brushes. I have tried a few brushes of this style in the past with little success. However, since this one from Crown brush is made of better quality I am excited to put it to the test. This is labeled as a contour brush but I will use it to blend in my foundation. The densely packed bristles make it ideal for applying cream or liquid products. The handle makes it easy to hold and rub onto the skin. The idea behind these types of brushes is that you should blend in a continuous motion and lift the brush from the face as little as possible. I really want to like this brush but it feels as if I am just smearing product around my face instead of having in sink in like I want it to. I will continue to use it though because practice makes perfect!

“The Convertible Brow” by The BrowGal 

I have not used a powder to fill in my brows in YEARS! I was up to the challenge this morning and was very pleased with how my brows turned out. This product contains three powders which could work for a large spectrum of hair colors. These powders can be applied dry or wet to act as a pomade . I think that is a genius idea! I do not typically use pomades but this product really IS convertible! I did finish off my routine by applying a tinted brow gel as I always do, and my brows looked great all day. This product was the surprise front runner of the box for me.

The Brow Brush from The BrowGal

I do love that they included a brush to use with the previous product. Do I wish they came together and counted as one product? Yes. Have I become incredibly spoiled by this beauty subscription? Also yes. This brush is great, the spoolie and angled side both worked great to get my brows in tip top shape. I actually did not have a brush like this previously since I always use pencils to fill in my brows, so this was a welcomed product for my collection!

Overall, another winning box from Boxycharm. No misses? I’ll take that any day! I am always happy with this beauty subscription. There is so much to love about getting FULL-SIZE products at a ridiculously good price tag. The total value of this box? $138…and I paid $21 for it. BEST. DEAL. EVER.
