Hello, BoxyCharm! August 2017 Box

boxy charm |

As you may recall, I subscribed to Ipsy for over two years.  (How could you not recall since I wrote about my glam bags every month 😉)  I really looked forward to trying out the samples and loved getting my pink shiny envelope in the mail each month.

After a lot of going back and forth, I decided that I wanted to move on to something different.  And boxy charm it is!

Here is what I got in my first box:


(I’m going to write about what I got in my box from my least to most favorite…)


Waterproof Gel Eyeliner by Bellapierre $15.00

Creamy, waterproof eyeliner for true definition that lasts all day. The liner glides on smoothly, and is formulated with pure minerals, natural waxes, and antioxidants-making them hypoallergenic and safe for all skin types.

You know how I feel about receiving black eyeliners in these boxes…That being said, this liner is just ok.  Kinda stiff and waxy instead of smooth and creamy.  At $15, that is a huge no thanks from me.

Face Paint by Aloette $35.00

Aloette’s Face Paint point is enriched with Jojoba esthers, vitamin E, and other essential oils that will heal and nourish the skin while providing long-lasting, dewy color to the cheeks and lips.

This is a really beautiful shade, but I’ve never really enjoyed cream blush products.  Probably because I am just not good at applying them…I’ve worn it on my lips a few times, but don’t really love the shade on my lips.  I may pass it along to someone else who might use it.

Pro Eyelashes by PÜR The Complexion Authority $14.00

PÜR’s 3D lashes are handcrafted with the finest luxury silk to provide ultra-lightweight, natural-looking, fuller lashes. These cruelty-free lashes are durable, reusable, and safe for contact wearers. 

These lashes are beautiful.  Personally, I don’t ever wear false lashes, and I don’t own any lash glue…so I can’t actually apply these.  But none the less, they are gorgeous.

Rainforest Of The Sea: Volume II by Tarte $36.00

Crease-free eyeshadow palette with the best-selling creamy powder formula in eight, cool-toned shades.

While these shadows are gorgeous, they are definitely not for a beginner.  They have a strange creamy texture.  While perfect for the lid, they don’t really blend well in the crease. I have found that applying each shade using my fingertips makes the shadows apply much better.  The golden shade is gorgeous as an over the entire lid shade.

MODA Pro 3-Piece Brush Set by Royal & Langnickel $26.00

This MODA Pro 3-piece brush set, features a pointed blush, chisel blender, and a crease brush. These brushes will achieve endless looks and can be used with both wet and dry products. 

I have used these brushes every day since receiving them. I’ve been using the largest one to apply bronzer and powder. With a unique curve design, this flat dense brush can be used to apply highlight, but I have been using it to contour my cheekbones. The thin one is my new favorite crease brush.  It is so soft and versatile.

For now, I am only planning on getting Boxy Charm for three months.  We’ll see how things go because the first box I got is awesome, I may be wanting to continue my subscription past the three months.
