Boxycharm is consistently my favorite beauty box that I receive each month. I got this one a bit later due to the fact that I was on vacation for a huge chunk of the month. I was excited to finally open my mailbox and get my hands on it. For $21 a month you get five FULL SIZE beauty products delivered to your door, what could be better than that?!
Let’s jump to the products:
RealHer Eyeshadow Palette in “Do Your Squats”
Getting a full-size eye shadow palette in a subscription box is amazing. The retail value of this item is worth more than the whole box! This palette is filled with warm toned hues that are oh so popular right now. There are two mattes, several shimmers and a shade that is stacked with glitter. This palette could create a whole eye look but you may want to pull in a few more shadows from your collection to fully get the look you want. Some of these shades once on the eye can muddle together and appear all the same. However, the pigmentation is great and they blend very easily. Is this palette revolutionary and you need to run out and buy it this second? No, but it will do the trick and is awesome for those who have a smaller collection! I have been using this for a few days and am pleased with what I have created. Just make sure to use an eye primer to ensure they stick around all day!
Artist Couture Diamond Glow Powder in “Illuminati”
Another highlighter received in a beauty subscription! Some people may be sick of getting these reoccurring items, but I am not. This brand was created by a beauty influencer and it is awesome for Boxycharm to support that. This pale gold highlighter packs a serious punch. This product comes in the form of a finely milled loose pigment and since a little goes a long way, this product will last forever. There is a lot of glitter in this highlighter which usually I do not like but that is what gives it its outstanding glow. This highlighter is not for the faint of heart and I think would be worn best at night or for flash photography. I have been wearing this product quite a bit and it lasts the whole day on my skin. Go get your glow on girl!
Ofra Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick in “Tuscany”
Liquid lipsticks are great for people who want a no-fuss lip product, which is me majority of the time. Tuscany is a deep berry shade that is beautiful but a bit dark for the season. I love wearing a bright lip during the summer (I am currently rocking an orange shade ) so this product will most likely hang out in my collection until fall rolls around. I have tried a lot of liquid lipsticks since they sky rocketed to popularity and the Ofra formula is one of the best. It is not too drying and sticks around a long time which is ideal for busy days. This product is not transfer resistant like other similar lipsticks but it does the trick. The deep shade will be flattering on just about anybody!
BioBelle Cosmetic Sheet Masks
It will be no surprise to you if you’re an avid reader of this blog that I LOVE receiving sheet masks. BioBelle is known for these types of masks. They work well and have the most adorable packaging! I have a few in my collection already and have adored using them. They fit the face well and do great things for my complexion. Sheet masks are the easiest way to nourish your skin and pamper yourself at the same time. I am most excited to use the makeup “primer” mask. Such an innovative idea to use a mask right before makeup that will actually make it last longer and look better!
Luxie Beauty 640 Tapered Face Brush
This is the 6th Luxie brush I have received in subscription boxes and I hope they keep coming! These brushes have all pleased me, they are ultra soft and work beautifully on the face (I will link my favorite down below). This one in particular is very fluffy with long tapered bristles. However, I am not quite sure how I will be using this brush. I tried using it to apply highlighter but it is not dense enough. Perhaps it will be used to brush off excess powder when I bake my face? Or perhaps it will just have a home on my vanity for the time being because it’s just so dang pretty. I am a sucker for anything rose gold & pink!
Boxycharm knocked it out of the park yet again. Am I surprised? Not at all! This box is the best and no misses this month just reinforces that point. This box has a retail value of $113 and I only paid $21 for it. Got to love that! What item was your favorite?
