July Boxy Charm: Road Trippin

Hey Friends! I have been a little late this month on unveiling my Boxy Charm which is super unlike me. But I did some traveling and this box was just lack luster. Still worth the 21$ but I probably wont be reaching for these products often.. Here are my thoughts about what I received.

Crown Brush – Fuego Eyeshadow Palette 29.99$ Screen Shot 2018-07-17 at 12.42.17 PMThis palette is actually really pretty and had decent pigmentation but the shimmer shades leave a lot to be desired. They do not perform very well. I have much better palettes that I would rather reach for.

Wander Beauty – Unlashed Volume and Curl mascara 24$ Screen Shot 2018-07-17 at 12.42.30 PMThis mascara is not good. It takes years to build up and who has time for that? Not worth the money at all. Nothing much else to say.

Note Cosmetics – Luminous Silk Compact Blusher 11.99$ Screen Shot 2018-07-17 at 12.42.40 PMThis blush is SO pigmented. Its actually amazing and I would definitely get more shades!

Chella Beauty – Eyebrow Creme 26$ Screen Shot 2018-07-17 at 12.42.50 PMThis eyebrow creme is nice and has good pigmentation. The only thing I am not loving is the packaging.

Farmacy Beauty – Bright On Mask 38$ Screen Shot 2018-07-17 at 12.42.41 PMThis mask rocks! It doesn’t over dry on your skin and leaves it clean and bright.

Total value is 129.98$!!!

Till Next Time!!

BoxyCharm Updates on this Months Box

I have been testing out this months box and I have a lot of opinions. Normally I love the box, might not use everything but this month is different! So I am going to dive in right away.

Starting off with the Alamar Cosmetics eye shadow palette. It is AMAZING. The pigment and color payoff is so rich and creamy. I have no complaints! I thought I would be missing a light base shade but the colors are build-able so you really don’t need any other palette to make a perfect cohesive look.

Next up the Luxie brushes are really nice. They are so soft and blend out creams and powders like a dream. I only with the foundation brush was thicker so that it would create fuller looks. Facetune_26-06-2018-13-03-33

Now my negatives… I don’t like the battington lashes. One I enjoy a fuller lash and two the band wasn’t flexible enough. I would definitely recommend the shop eden lashes or house of lashes.

Lastly I didn’t like the ofra lip color at all. It was not a great color for me. It was an odd brownish grey tone on my lips and I will be giving the lippie to my mom as soon as I see her. Not cute on me… I need something brighter or more colorful. (Obviously I am wearing a different lip in the picture above, it’s an old collection color from Jeffree Star)

Boxy Charm

It’s my favorite day of the month once again! You know that means I just received my boxy charm box and I am giving you my first reactions to opening it. I was over the moon about the sneak peeks that were going to be in this months box. Okay I just ran out to the mailbox and opened up my box so let’s jump in! This month every charmer got 6 products for just 21$ which is absolutely amazing!IMG_5934

  • First and most excitingly we received the Reina Del Caribe palette from Alamar. This palette is so gorgeous and I can’t wait to try out some looks with it this week. There is a mix of mattes, shimmers, and metallics. Absolutely stunning!!! Retails for 28$.IMG_5941
  • Next we go the Monroe Silk Lashes by Battington. They are a 3-D multi-layered silk lashes. They look pretty, not as dramatic as I normally wear but I will definitely put them to the test. Retails for 28$.IMG_5937
  • Then we received the Brazilian Bum Bum Cream from Sol De Janeiro. I am so excited to test this product out! It is supposed to help smooth and tighten your body and I can definitely use that. This is a smaller size, not a full tub. Retails for 10$img_5940.jpg
  • Next up all charmers received a 3 piece flawless complexion brush set from Luxie Beauty. I am a brush addict so I am always excited to add new brushes to my collection and these are no exception. These synthetic brushes are so soft and well constructed. Retails for 42$IMG_5936
  • The next two products may vary per charmer. I got a waterproof eyeliner pencil by Jonteblu in the shade charcoal. I have this pencil in other colors and they work pretty well. I just don’t tend to reach for them so this is the only product that I may not reach for much. Retails for 5$IMG_5938
  • Lastly I got a long lasting liquid lipstick from Ofra in the shade Verona. I tend to wear mostly bright colors so I am hoping my mom received a brighter color to trade with me. I really love the lasting power of liquid lipsticks because I tend to forget to reapply but I am hoping normal lipsticks come back in trend. They just rock. Retails for 21$IMG_5939

So that is everything for this month. I already can’t wait to find out what July has in store!!! This was 134$ worth of product for just 21$!! If you haven’t signed up for boxy charm what are you waiting for??

Till next time friends!

Boxy Charm Birthday Bash!

It’s boxycharm’s birthday and they are having a BoxyBash this month! I thought there would be some different items in the box this month but it is still exciting! So let’s dive into this box. IMG_5479

First up we received the CoverFX blurring primer, retailing 38$. This primer blurs the appearance of pores, fine lines, and other imperfections. IMG_5484

Next we have the Pretty Vulgar The Ink Gel Eyeliner, retailing 24$. I know I have done a review on this before and wasn’t that excited about it but knowing I was getting another pot of this liner I have been trying to use the liner more and figure out if there is ways I will love it. IMG_3811

Now we have a brush set from aesthetica cosmetics pro brush series retailing 45$. The trio comes with an angled eyeliner brush, a brow spoolie, and a fine tipped eyeliner brush. IMG_5481

We also got a sculptor contour/highlight palette by Pur Cosmetics, 30$. This is a four shade, sculpting palette that features two high-beam highlighters and two matte contour shades that will leave skin sculpted to perfection. These suckers are crazy pigmented so a teeny tiny bit will go a long way!! The contour shades are very dark, so that worries me a little bit. IMG_5485

P12 Face brush by Aesthetica, 27$. This synthetic fiber brush allows for maximum control. IMG_5480

Last up I received a Beauty Creations Liquid Lip Gloss, 10$. This matte liquid lip gloss is specifically formulated to provide full coverage that dries to a seamless, smooth, and matte finish. Lightweight and long wearing. I got the shade kiss me. IMG_5483

This month we received an extra product to celebrate BoxyCharm’s birthday! Always exciting and you know it’s my favorite time of the month!!

Till next month and next post!

April 2018 Boxycharm: Eye Candy!

It is that time of the month again… Boxycharm Unboxing day!!!! This months theme is Eye Candy and boy oh boy was this a great box! So let’s dive on in!IMG_5005

This month I got the Element Of Surprise eyeshadow palette by Colourpop retailing for 16$. The colors are so gorgeous in this palette. I love the shimmers and the bold, bright pink is the perfect pop of color that you don’t find in a ton of palettes.IMG_5010

Next I received a MAC cosmetics Liptensity Lipstick in the shade Burnt Violet- 21$. I have to say even though I really wanted this lipstick over the liquid highlighter which was another option that was sent, I don’t think it goes with the theme very well. It doesn’t look like a color for spring or look candy-ish. I still love it though!IMG_5011

Up next I received the Pores no more Vacuum Cleaner by Dr. Brandt- 47$. I love Dr. Brandt products, they always work so well and leave my skin feeling so soft and super clean!IMG_5012

Next out of the box comes The BrowGal – The Instatint: tinted eyebrow gel 22$. This particular eyebrow gel contains little hairs which not only help to tint your eyebrows but also fill them in as well.IMG_5014

Lastly I got two eyeshadow brushes by SL Miss Glam 38.50$. They are so soft and look super cute with the jewel detail. The duo comes with a blender brush and a brush perfect for packing on color. IMG_5013That’s it for this month! I already can’t wait for next months box!

March Boxy Charm!!

You have to know by now that this is my favorite day of the month. I mean, makeup has been delivered to my door!!! This months box was good and I’m so excited about it. From the sneak peeks I saw I couldn’t wait to get my fingers on the goodies.IMG_4243

So let’s jump in to the Bae-cation boxy charm box.

Let’s start out with the most exciting item which is the Pur cosmetics X Boxycharm eyeshadow palette. It is drop dead gorgeous. The peaches, the mattes, the shimmers, and my favorite summer color- a bright pop of blue. Retails 36$ and you can find it at Ulta or Purcosmetics.com. The colors are stunning and blend like a dream with major color payoff!                                        IMG_4250

Next a Mascara from Bellapierre Cosmetics. MSRP: 20$ This guy promises long lasting, volumizing mascara formulated to help create thicker and fuller lashes. After testing this one, it was a super disappointment. Not a huge deal since I wear false lashes but for the days I don’t… I will not be reaching for this at all.                                         IMG_4249

South Mane Beauty gave us Under Eye Gels for 10$ These make for a great easy mask without the clean up. They soften and moisturize to ensure that you look rested and refreshed.                                                                                              IMG_4246

The Vintage Cosmetic Company gave us a Smokey Eye Makeup Brush Set retailing at 23.15$ This brush set trio will enable you to create a stunning smokey eye. The brushes are so soft and who doesn’t love getting new brushes?? I know I’m a total addict. After testing these guys out I do like them for packing on color but probably won’t be my number one go to brushes. Still very nice tho! IMG_4248

I was so excited to get this Blush from Pretty Vulgar. I adore their packaging with the vintage look. I know Boxycharm sent out two shades and even though I didn’t get the shade I was hoping for, the one I got is still really pretty. The blush runs for 26$ The color I received was called Prim Vixen and it is so insanely bright.. Must go in with the lightest of hand.                                                                     IMG_4247

If you added that up, that is just over 115$ worth of product for only 21$!!!! I love this box so much!!! Definitely sign up while there is no waitlist!
