Ok so it’s nearly September and I’m finally around to getting my August Boxycharm on my blog. Better late than never, I suppose.
This was a good month for Boxycharm! I recently was thinking about discontinuing my subscription with them, because I was getting products from a lot of brands that I had never heard of, and I wasn’t too impressed with the selection I was getting. However, these last couple of months have changed my mind. They’ve been teaming up with some great brands to give us exciting products, and they seeem to have really stepped up their game!
If you’re not familiar with Boxycharm, it is a monthly subscription box that sends you 5-6 FULL SIZE items a month for only $21. The total retail Value is usually $100-$120. Awesome deal! If you’re interested in joining, you can sign up here.
So this month, the highlight of the box was this Tarte eyeshadow palette! I love Tarte as a brand, and upon swatching these shadows it seems to be pretty nice. I like how there are transition shades as well as some darker, bolder shades to create a smokey look. I’m looking forward to trying this out soon. I will post photos on my instagram.
The next thing that caught my eye was this brush set by MODA Pro. I honestly don’t see myself using the sculpt brush, but I will give it a try. The blush and crease brushes are great and are really soft! Can’t ever have too many brushes!
This face and lip paint product from Aloette is not at all my cup of tea. I like the idea of multi purpose products, but I don’t like this color, and it feels very greasy. I honestly don’t see myself ever using this. This is a dud for me.
These lashes from PUR, however, are BEAUTIFUL! I don’t ever wear lashes, but I do have some on hand for if I feel the need to put some on. I really like how long and wispy theses ones are, and they claim to last up to 30 wears.
The overall value of my Boxycharm this month was $126! All of this for only $21
