BoxyCharm was kind enough to send me their August box, and I’m in love! The box features 5 full size products, monthly, and while you only pay $21 per month, you’re getting over $100 in products. It’s a great deal, and each month’s box is curated by the creators. Plus, if you sign up for a few months at a time, the price goes down even further.
If you’re interested in signing up, you can view past boxes here, and can sign up here.
BoxyCharm processed and shipped the box quite quickly, and as you can see below, everything in the box was packaged very nicely. The box comes with some confetti, the products, a card explaining everything in the box, the prices, some tips, and more, and finally a coupon code to one of the retailers.
The August box was jam packed with goodies, including:
Coastal Scents Blush and Bronzer Mini Palette
Aloette Time Repair Serum
Dirty Little Secret Velvet Matte Liquid Lipstick in Crimson, a orangey red
Doucce Cosmetics Maxlash Volumizer Mascara in Black
Beauty For Real Shadow Stx in Ever Starstruck, a champagne shimmery nude
The Shadow Stx is fantastic, and stays all day, and the soft shimmery champagne color can be used as a brow bone highlight, in the inner eye, or as a cheek or jawline highlight on my skin.
The Aloette Time Repair Serum is great for anti aging, but at 21, I like to use it as a pre-primer, as a moisturizing, smoothing base. It’s light enough to wear under makeup and soaks right in.
The Dirty Little Secret Velvet Matte Liquid Lipstick is a really lovely formula that stays well, but the Crimson is a little aggressive for my uber fair skin. It will work well for a statement lip, with understated eyes.
The Coastal Scents Blush and Bronzer Mini Palette (and brush) are really fantastic. They’re highly pigmented and will work great on medium skin. The highlight and bronzers are my favorites, and will add a nice glow, but the blushes are also very nice.
The Doucce Cosmetics Maxlash Volumizer Mascara has a really nice, chunky brush, and does add a lot of volume, but as it’s not waterproof, and I have fairly watery eyes, I won’t get too much use out of it, but for someone with less annoying eyes, it will work great.
