Well hello cutie pies! 🙂
Welcome back to my blog beauties! My favorite time of the month has arrived, Boxy Charm time! I am always excited to receive my box, and to start playing with new products!
If you haven’t heard of Boxy Charm it is a monthly subscription box where you receive 5 full size beauty products that have a total value of $100 or more for only $21! It is an amazing deal, and I find you always receive great products to try. If you’d like to sign up just go to my referral link if you’d like to help me out (I totally appreciate it if you do!) or you can also go to the Boxy Charm website.
If you’d like to see all the products I got this month just keep scrolling!
Uni-Brow Universal Eyebrow Pencil by WinkyLux
When I initially saw this product in the box I first thought the packaging was gorgeous, and secondly I thought it was a liquid eye liner. However, as you see, it is actually a brow pencil. My fault for assuming…oops! lol
I have not tried this product since I just received my box yesterday, but I still have some thoughts. I am not a fan of brow pencils with this type of larger angled tip. This reminds me of the ABH brow definer which I hated! I do prefer a precise pointed tip. I also noticed when I swatched it that it seems to be a dry formula that tugs at the skin. Now, of course, it may be completely different on the brows. I will have to try it out, and I will update you all in a future post.
Retail Price: $12
Invisible Light Translucent Powder Duo by bareMinerals
I was over the moon excited to see this product in my box! BareMinerals came out with this powder duo a while ago, and I really wanted to try it out. However, at the time I didn’t have the money to buy it, and then I honestly forgot all about it until it showed up in my box.
The first side of the duo is a matte powder. This half will be great to set all over my face since I do get oily throughout the day. I am curious to see just how matte this will keep me. The other side of the duo is a glow powder. As you see in the swatch it gives a natural and subtle glow to the skin. I cannot wait to try it out since I enjoy a more natural looking glow. This does seem to show a white color, but the product claims to work for all skin tones. If that is true then this is a great little duo to have, and especially great for travel.
Retail Price: $32
Electric Eyes Palette by Blinc
Oh My Goodness!! Just Wow!
When I first saw this palette I was not excited. I mean it’s a palette of shimmers, and that didn’t have me excited. However, then I swatched them, and my jaw hit the floor! I was literally in shock at how amazing these eyeshadows swatched. I barely touched the shadows, made one swipe on my hand with no primer, and I still had shadow on my fingers to do another swatch! I am highly impressed with the quality!
Honestly, this palette has the creamiest most pigmented eyeshadows I have tried. If you are familiar with my blog you know I am not much of a metallic eyeshadow person, but this palette just changed my mind! This palette makes me want to use more metallic shades because these are amazing!
I have a feeling I will be obsessing over this for awhile.
Retail Price: $45
Ultra-Matte Lip by ColourPop
I was definitely excited to see this product as well! ColourPop’s ultra matte liquid lipsticks are one of my favorites. They are a more drying formula than some other liquid lipsticks, but I don’t mind that at all. These are affordable, pigmented, and they last all day on the lips.
I got the shade Speed Dial which is a shade I have not tried. On the ColourPop website it is described as a rich peach. I guess I see a peachy tone to it, but there is definitely a strong red tone in it as well. I think it is a gorgeous shade, and it is a shade I would wear a lot.
Retail Price: $6
Body Illuminizer by Ofra Cosmetics
This product was right down the middle for me. I wasn’t overly excited, but I wasn’t disappointed either. This is a body illuminizer which is something I honestly haven’t used before. In the swatch it appears dark, but once you blend it out the color doesn’t show at all. I did try out this product on my legs to see what it would look like. It gives the skin a nice glow that just catches the light. It honestly is really pretty! This is a great summer product, and I definitely plan on using it during my vacation soon!
Retail Price: $39.95
The over all total of this month’s box is $134.95!!!
I loved this months box! I say that every month, but that’s because it is the truth. I would never recommend anything to my readers that I didn’t think would be worth your money. Thanks again for stopping by to read my thoughts on these products. If you’re already a charmer let me know your thoughts on this months box!
