Another month, another awesome box from Boxycharm. So if you don’t know what Boxycharm is, it is a monthly subscription box where you get 4-5 full-size products and you pay US$21.00 a month. You always get your moneys worth in my opinion. It’s rare that I get things in my box that I really dislike or won’t use. Sometimes (like this month) you get 6 products in the box which is just amazing. This month’s Boxycharm is worth US$134.00 and you only pay US$21.00!! Now let us dive in and see what I got this month.
Alamar – Reina Del Caribe (Eyeshadow Palette) US$28.00
Battington – Monroe Silk Lashes US$28.00
Sol De Janeiro – Brazilian Bum Bum Cream US$10.00
Luxie – 3 Piece Flawless Complexion US$42.00
Jonteblu – Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil US$5.00
Ofra – Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick US$21.00
Alamar Reina Del Caribe Eyeshadow Palette
I was so happy to get the Alamar Reina Del Caribe eyeshadow palette this month. As soon as I had seen the sneak peek on Boxycharm’s Instagram I could not wait for the box to arrive. Is it just me who is always impatient and is always looking for those sneak peeks because I need to know what is going to be in the box.
Anyway, the palette is beautiful. I didn’t really have any problems blending on my eyes and I forgot to use an eyeshadow primer or concealer on my eyes first. The pigment was there (as you can see in the swatch picture below) as well for me a little was all I needed. There are tons of looks you can do with this palette just go see on the Alamar cosmetics Instagram and you can see tons of different looks and get some inspiration. I will definitely be keeping an eye out for new products by them.
Jonteblu Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil
This eyeliner from Jonteblu just is not waterproof. I put it on my waterline and it just fades away like I never even put anything there. I wasn’t surprised a lot of eyeliners do this to me that is why half the time I just don’t put it on. There are only a couple that actually stays on, one being the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil but I have to start picking up more shades to go with my looks. So I will most likely use this as a base for my eyeshadow or something like that.
Battington Monroe Silk Lashes
I have a love-hate relationship with lashes. I love how they make my eye look just pop or make it seem like I have lashes at all when I wear a dark eyeshadow or have
Luxie 3 Piece Flawless Complexion
More brushes I love it. This 3 piece set comes with a Precision Foundation brush, a Tapered Highlighter brush and a Duo Fibre Powder. These brushes are soft and did the job I needed them to.
The Precision Foundation I used to set under my eyes and I used it to apply my blush. It worked both ways but I think I will continue to use it to set my concealer and the rest of my face. They were very soft under my eyes. The Duo Fiber Powder brush I used to put on a little contour and it blended it very nicely. this one you can use for anything you want really very versatile in my opinion. Now the Tapered Highlight brush I used it for just that I highlighted my face and I got a wonderful highlight application.
Overall I liked all these brushes and I always like to get brushes because like I’ve said in a previous post I just never know what brushes to buy so it’s nice just to be given some here.
Ofra Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick
I was happy when I got the box and saw that I had got the Ofra cosmetics liquid lipstick. I have one that I had got in collaboration with Kathleen Lights and I really liked the formula and the way it felt so I knew I would like this one as well.
The other option some people had gotten was a Girlactik Lip Paint and I had never worn those so I don’t know if they are any good or not. The shade I got was a nice shade for me, very casual. I’m not sure if everyone got the same shade but I think this is a nice colour overall. The formula is very smooth, not flakey. A very good liquid lipstick.
Sol De Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream
Last but not least this Brazilian Bum Bum Cream by Sol De Janeiro is so nice. The smell is delicious and I love smelling my shoulder when I put it on because it smells so good. I put it all over my body and it felt really
Also, when I shave my legs and put lotion on usually it burns my legs and I didn’t have that problem which is always nice. I think I will be purchasing a larger size off of Sephora when this runs out. Which won’t take long because it is only 0.84 fl oz / 25 mL.
To me, it was another amazing month for Boxycharm. I have been subscribed for a year now and I think this has to be my favourite box so far. Every month I’m excited to see what we are going to get and I just love this box. Do you get the box? If you do what do you think about it? Is it worth it to you? let me know in the comments below.
