Boxycharm Review: August 2017

 

Hello my loves! Welcome back 🙂 I just recently received my monthly Boxycharm  for August and I thought I’d give you guys a peak! I am seriously in love with this subscription box. Every month I am consistently impressed by the FULL SIZE products I receive for only $21 a month. There are times where I do not like every single product, but I usually love at least 2 or 3 of them and would 100% pay $21 for those two products alone! So, I would say if you haven’t tried this subscription box yet, you totally should. Okay let’s just get into this months box!

First thing I grabbed was the Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Volume ll eyeshadow palette. I love getting Tarte products in these boxes and especially an entire eyeshadow palette. I love the colors in this one, very neutral and wearable. Most of these eyeshadows were not super pigmented but definitely perfect for everyday wear. The palette had zero fallout which is nice because I like to do my foundation first. I used the shades Pearl, Conch, Marina, Seaside and Breezy. I used Breezy all over the lid and it’s such a beautiful color! Gives you that sultry look without having to try too hard. This palette retails for $36.

So next thing I was drawn to in the box was the trio brush set. I love getting brushes in my box because I legit hate spending money on makeup brushes. I don’t know why, but it pains me to spend money on good brushes, but they really do make such a difference when applying your makeup. The Moda Pro 3 piece brush set came with a crease brush, a chisel brush and a pointed blush brush (say that fast three times) haha. To be honest, I’ll probably never use the chisel brush, but I love the crease eyeshadow brush for blending shadows and I used the pointed blush brush to powder my face but I would consider using it for blush too. These brushes were super soft and not scratchy at all. The handles are that soft touch material which makes them feel so luxurious and expensive. This brush trio retails for $26.

Next up, I saw these super wispy falsies! Now, I do not wear false lashes so I wasn’t super excited about this product, but I’ll keep them on deck in case I need them for a special event or something because they look so stunning! They are the PÜR Cosmetics Pro Lashes and they retail for $14.

Next up, this cute little lip/cheek product from Aloette. It is actually called a face paint, so I’m assuming that you could use this for any sort of make (eyeshadow, cheek stain, lip tint.) I personally don’t like using cream products on my face but this made for a beautiful lip color and was super easy to apply. It stained my lips for HOURS which is amazing. This product retails for $35! That’s expensive but I can see how this product would last you an extremely long time since you don’t need much to see the color pay off.

Next product was a black gel liner pencil from Bellapierre. This eyeliner also claims to be waterproof. I must have like 1,000 different black eyeliners in my collection at this point and I honestly rarely ever wear eyeliner but hey, I know a lot of other people do. After applying this product, it’s definitely not as black and pigmented as I’d like but it definitely stayed on my water line for a long time. Overall not my favorite and it retails for $15.

Did that seem like a million products to you? I felt like they were never going to end!! I really enjoy the Tarte eyeshadow palette, the Aloette face paint and the Moda makeup brushes. Definitely makes this box worth the $21 I paid for it. The total value of this months box was $126!!! That’s so crazy to me! Anyway, if I haven’t already said it a million times, this subscription box is soooooooo good and sooooo worth the monthly price of $21. Okay my loves that is all the information I have for your pretty faces today. Talk to you next time!
