I received my August BoxyCharm so early this month. I’m very excited about that!
Boxycharm is just $21 a month for 5-6 beauty items, most of them full-sized. It’s an amazing way to try new makeup and beauty tools!
This month I received:
- Bang Beauty Chocolate Eyeliner
- Adesse New York Nail Treatment- Sweet Almond Cuticle Oil
- Wander Beauty Baggage Claim Gold Eye Masks
- Laura Lee Los Angeles Party Animal Palette
- House of Lashes
- Smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick
I was so happy to get these eye masks! I have seen them reviewed and thought they looked fun! They are gold foil on the outside and a cellulose fiber that delivers hyaluronic acid and more! They look so cute on and when I removed them, my eyes looked amazing! Very smooth, bright, and my dark circles were reduced! Love!
The style of these lashes are Siren. I don’t wear lashes, but they are pretty. The band is really thin and I think these would actually fit my eyes. These might come in handy later, so I’ll hang on to them.
This Adesse New York oil includes Vitamin E, shea oil, sweet almond, and jojoba oils. This has a light scent. I haven’t used it yet because I have a cuticle oil I forget to use. I think I might give this away.
After I received this palette, I told my daughter who is leaving for college that I had a nice, neutral palette for her. Then I showed her this. She laughed so hard!
This palette is very good quality. It has sturdy packaging and a really nice mirror. The colors are obviously very bright. I am going to try them out soon and may do a review of the palette alone.
I will have swatches of this, the brow cream and the lipstick below.
Bang Beauty Chocolate Eyeliner — I don’t usually use eyeliner. I use shadow to line my eyes. But I do like gel eyeliner. I don’t wear black often, so this might be nice for every day. I will try this out. (But I don’t think it will work with the bright Laura Lee palette)!
Smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick in Action, vivid orchid cream. This is such a creamy lipstick that feels so good on! And the color is so pretty. But it’s not really for me. I like nudes or pinks. I have tried it out, so I will keep it. Who knows, I might use it (and this will go with the Laura Lee palette!)
Here are my swatches:
On the left is the eyeliner. I should have applied it with a brush because it was hard to do with my finger. You can see the color and it was really difficult to remove so it would probably last a long time on the eyes.
The lipstick is next. It’s really pretty. The next 6 shades are Laura Lee’s palette. From left to right is Issa Party, Damage Control, Karaoke, Dranks, Bottoms Up and Hungover. I have tried one shade, Hungover in my crease, outer corner and under my eyes. And it was gorgeous! So I’m kind of excited about the crazy colors.
I think this month was okay. I will use all of the eye masks and I’ll try out the palette and eyeliner. I’ll keep the lipstick or give it to my daughter. I’ll hold on to the lashes just in case I need them. I will probably give the nail oil away. I usually don’t keep as many products out of my BoxyCharm. So while I’m not blown away by anything, I will use some of it.
What do you think of these products? Do you get BoxyCharm? What did you receive?
