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!

June Hits and Misses

I am SO sorry that this did not get posted earlier! The family and I made a spontaneous trip to Florida for the 4th of July weekend. We stayed with some friends and I didn’t have much time to edit or write! The weekend was supposed to storm and so I brought my computer and it ended up being beautiful and sunny the whole weekend. Check out my youtube video to see the complete list of hits and misses! Click Here!

So let’s jump right in to these Hits and Misses!

Screen Shot 2017-07-05 at 7.14.13 AMFirst up is the beauty shield collection from ELF Cosmetics! I absolutely love this line. I have been using it everyday since I received it and OMG my skin looks amazing! and I love the way it smells. Screen Shot 2017-06-29 at 3.36.22 PM Next up is the Jaclyn Hill X Morphe palette. I won’t repeat myself from my last post but this palette is amazing so definitely try to get your hands on it!

Screen Shot 2017-07-05 at 7.34.50 AMI really enjoyed this exfoliator! I have been wanting to try a stick exfoliator and so I purchased this one and really liked it. I haven’t decided it I would repurchase it but it is definitely a hit for this month!!Screen Shot 2017-07-05 at 7.35.41 AM Last one for my hits is the Boscia Jelly Ball Cleanser. OMG it is soo cool and weird and I just love it!

On to the Misses…

Screen Shot 2017-07-05 at 7.16.41 AMSo first up on the misses is this makeup drop silicone blender. First off it does not blend at all. Maybe I am not using it correctly but after trying it I was very disappointed. It does save product by not absorbing it I suppose but it is definitely not worth the 20$

Screen Shot 2017-07-05 at 7.17.05 AMThis mascara, Manna Kadar Beauty, was nothing special to me. I received it in my beautycon box and I was not impressed. The brush is way too big and you can not get your bottom lashes with it unless you are prepared to make a mess. And for 29$ I would definitely not purchase this mascara!!

Screen Shot 2017-07-05 at 7.17.19 AMAnother item I was not overly impressed with was this eyeliner by Jonteblu. It is a beautiful color but just didn’t glide on my eyes as easily as I would have loved it too. But it was only 5$ so not a terrible price by any means!!

Alright guys that is it for this time. I have lots of ideas coming up so definitely stay tuned and leave me comments about what you were loving or not loving last month!!!!
