Boxy Charm : June 2018

Boxy Charm is $21 a month for 4-5 full size products. The box is always guaranteed to a value of $100 or more each month. They offer a wide range of brands from emerging to well known. There is a beauty quiz you can take similar to Ipsy to go over your skin tone, skin type, hair color, eye color, so on and so forth. They also offer a user friendly website to allow you to review the items in your box.

Let’s dive into this months box!

Our theme this month was Caribbean Queen!

Alamar Cosmetics; Reina Del Caribe Vol. 1 Palette                            Retail Price $28

This was the star of the box! Not only is this an Indi-Brand palette but it was created by one of the social media gals for Boxy Charm which is super special. This palette is incredible! It’s colors I would use on the daily in and out but I have love experimenting with the color and taking a chance on warmer shadows! We got 4 shimmer shades and 4 matte shades and all of them are creamy, buttery and FULL pigment! I mean holy moly are they amazing shadows with brilliant colors and amazing bendability. I have been trying to use this every chance I get!

Battington Lashes; Silk Lashes; Style- Monroe                                            Retail Price $28

I think it was super cool to get lashes in a subscription box! I normally don’t purchase lashes because I have God given long lashes and usually can get away with just mascara, so for me this was a fun treat to try out. These are very nice silk lashes that look very natural and whispy when applied. How every I find that they aren’t as comfortable as I was hoping for. When I did wear them any time I blinked I got felt like my eye was getting poked. I think I may need to trim them a bit but for the most part I have big eyes and I felt like these should have fit just fine but didn’t. I also need to invest in some better glue. But I am hoping to try these out more and wear them for special occasions!

Luxie; 3 Piece Flawless Complexion Brush Set                                  Retail Price $42

Always, always, always love getting brushes in my boxes! I never really have to buy new ones! Haha! And Luxie brushes are such high quality and so nice to work with! I love these complexion brushes too; they are soft and apply and blend out product beautifully. This was such a great set to have in addition to everything else in the box!

Jonteblu; Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil; Shade- Medium Brown                   Retail  Price $5

In the past I have received products from Jonteblu before and I have like them. I wouldn’t say they are life changing holy grail items but they are really nice for the price. I really enjoyed that I got a different shade than the standard black because I don’t wear black eyeliner hardly ever. The brown also is more complimentary to my eye’s I think and isn’t as harsh when you wear it. The formula on the pencil however is a little stiff and not as easy to work with. I can apply it to my water line ok but when I try to put it on my lash line it tugs and pulls a bit which isn’t easy to use in my book. I’m just happy to have gotten a brown eyeliner!

Sol de Janerio, Brazilian Bum Bum Cream    Retail Price $10

This was an exciting item to get in the months box as well! Though it’s not the traditional full size item it’s a good travel size and an amazing product. I absolutely love the smell of this lotion and how amazing it makes my skin feel! I love how smooth my skin feel any where I apply it! This is a holy grail product for many beauty guru’s out there and now I understand why! I am in love with this!

 

Ofra Cosmetics; Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick; Shade- Verona               Retail Price $21

And finally to complete the box we got a new liquid lipstick from Ofra. We have gotten lipsticks from them in the past and they are always awesome. The Ofra formula is amazing! Super comfortable to wear and very, very long lasting.  I really am not the biggest fan of the shade but again it’s something to push me outside of my comfort zone and the nice thing is this shade pairs really well with the eyeshadow palette we got in this months box. So all in all a win for the box!

 

So that concludes my June Boxy Charm box! The value came in at:

$134

So again another killer box! I have already heard some sneaks for the month of July and this box is by far one of the best! I can’t wait to share what we get in upcoming boxes with you!

 

Thank you for stopping by and keep an eye out for what might be up around the curve!
