Boxy Charm Breakdown

August is in full swing and 2018 is flying away. This month Boxy Charm was the Life of the Party! Or so their theme suggested. Let’s dive in to this months offerings and I’ll let you know what I thought. IMG_6368

First item was either a hate it or love it kind of deal. The Laura Lee Los Angles Party Animal palette. It’s bold and bright. The colors blend very nicely and give great color payoff. But they are bright! The main thing I don’t like about the palette is that it is difficult to make a complete look. It needs at least one light, matte shade to blend out everything. Just my opinion tho. The palette retails for 19$IMG_6369

Next up is the Smashbox Pucker Up Palette in Bold. It comes with 6 of their best selling Be Legendary bold lipstick colors. I love lipstick so much but I hate lip palettes. They just aren’t convenient in my opinion and the colors are definitely for fall. This will be going in my special effects kit. Retails for 24$

Next I got the Tarte Cosmetics Lifted Sweat Proof Mascara. I do love that it is sweat proof but it is in a black brown shade. Not a huge deal when I’m wearing lashes but when I don’t it is lackluster. Retail is 23$Screen Shot 2018-08-13 at 12.32.01 PM

This months box contained Wander Baggage Claim Gold Eye Masks. These promise to brighten, hydrate, and reduce the appearance of dark circles and fine lines. I’m not a a huge user of eye masks but it makes perfect sense for the theme of the box. Get these guys for 13$ Screen Shot 2018-08-13 at 12.32.10 PM

This item is total junk if I’m being completely honest. The Bang Beauty Chocolate Eyeliner feels like it was left laying around from last year and they gave it to boxy charm for free… I attempted to use it as eyeliner and it removed my eyeshadow without laying product down. I tried using it as a brow product but this formula is so dry and chunky.. ugh such a throw away. And it’s 22$$$ Insane!                Screen Shot 2018-08-13 at 12.32.20 PM

Last product seems to be like a little bit of an after thought. NCLA So Rich Lollipop Lollipop is a cuticle oil. I’m sure everyone could or should use this item but I rarely do my nails so I just didn’t get excited. Could be wrong with how everyone else feels tho! Grab yours for 18$Screen Shot 2018-08-13 at 12.31.44 PM

Overall I always think boxycharm is still an amazing deal even if you only like 1 or 2 items. 21$ but a value of 119$ Hoping that next month brings better surprises.

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!!
