Beauty Box

August 2018 Boxycharm. The Must Have Beauty Box.

beauty box

 If you haven’t heard of the beauty box Boxycharm. I’m not sure where you have been. Boxycharm is a monthly subscription beauty box. It is $21.00 a Month and you get 4-5 full-size products. Sometimes you get 6 items like in the box I received this month.

I love this beauty box because I get to try new products that I would normally never purchase. You get items in your Boxycharm that are from big-name companies like Becca Cosmetics, Cover FX and more. They also add smaller brands I’ve never heard of.

Laura Lee Los Angeles Party Animal Eyeshadow Palette

Lets start with that I do not support Laura Lee and the things she’s said. I’m only reviewing this palette because it’s part of the box. Now that is out of the way lets just talk about the palette itself. I was disappointed with it and I didn’t think I was going to be.

The shades in the palette are beautiful shades. I am always on board for a colourful palette. The eye swatches I did were okay. I did have to go over them a few times to get the colour I did. Some were patchy and the shade Issa Party didn’t want to show up. I had to pack on that shade. Also, I did prime my eyes with concealer and left it wet as I do with all my shadows. When I tried to apply it with nothing on my eye beforehand the pigment was pretty much non-existent.

Now after all my swatches it came time to create a look. This disappointed me even more. I struggled, I started one look and things weren’t blending well.  One problem after another I ended up having to restart. Even after restarting it still didn’t turn out great. In the picture below you can see where there is a patch that did not want to go away. This whole look was just a mess.

For me, I definitely do not recommend this palette with all the problem I had. I don’t ever see myself picking up this palette again. The shades I love it’s just, in the end, they did not end up working for me.

House of Lashes Sweet Romance Lashes

The style of the lashes I love. But I won’t be using these again. At no fault to the lashes, it was me. I struggle a lot with very small bands. Putting these on was very difficult for me. I really need to continue to practice for it to not be a problem. Other than that I don’t have much to say about this product.

Wander Baggage Claim Gold Eye Masks

These Eye Masks I liked a lot. Which really surprised me because if you read my review on the last eye masks we got in the beauty box you know I did not like them. They gave me a headache and I was worried that was going to happen with these. I was very happy they didn’t.

After all the eye swatches I had done my eye was irritated and dry and they had helped. It helped with soothing my under eye and bring back some hydration. There was some other claims like helping with dark circles and wrinkles. I did not see any improvement there but I really did like the cooling and soothing feel it gave me. 

Adesse Sweet Almond Cuticle Oil

I don’t have much to say about this product. I have only used it once and I may not use it again. Not that I don’t want to, I will just forget. So I can’t really tell you if this is actually going to do what it says. I can tell you that my nails did feel nice and smooth when I applied it.

Smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick

This month every subscriber got a different time of lipstick from Smashbox. We either got a lipstick, liquid lipstick or a lip palette. I was routine for a liquid lipstick in my box because I love their liquid lips. I received their Be Legendary Lipstick in the shade Spectacle. Which is a bright orange colour.

The shade I was happy with. I usually like anything that is not a nude. The only times I wear a nude lip is if I have a serious dramatic eye look and I can’t find a good colour to go with it. 

This lipstick is comfortable on the lips. I don’t see myself picking up this lipstick over my liquid lipsticks. If it sits in my makeup collection for a little while without me touching it I will most likely give it to someone who will use it.

Bang Beauty Chocolate Eyeliner

I wasn’t really crazy about this eyeliner. For me, I like a dark brown for my eyeliner. On the Boxycharm Instagram, I did see you could use this for your brow. Which I did in the picture below. However yet again I like a darker brow.  I may use this as a base for under some eyeshadows. Other than that I don’t see myself grabbing this product.

Beauty Box Thoughts

Overall this box was not my favourite. Not because the products weren’t good, besides the eyeshadow palette. Most of the products just weren’t for me. If you liked this review go check out my previous review on the July 2018 Boxycharm.
