BoxyCharm Subscription Box Review — July 2018

IMG_1634

I received my July BoxyCharm later than usual this month. I receive this box each month and really like it.

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:

I didn’t take individual photos of the products this month.  This is was so late that I thought I would just get it posted!

I think this is an okay box.  I will use the Tarte mist.  I love setting sprays and skincare mists and this is a combo of both. It has a really nice mister and and herbal scent.

I am also testing out the dr. brandt eye gel.  I do see that it instantly helps the dark circles under my eyes.  You use it after eye cream and before makeup.

I will also use the Wander Beauty mascara.  I am waiting to open it because I already have enough mascara open.  And as we all know, mascara’s only good for about 3 months. But I will be trying it in a month or so.  I like the claims that it curls and gives volume.

I will be giving away the Note blush and the Chella eyebrow product to a friend or family member.  The blush is too orange for me and the eyebrow product is too light.

Although there was nothing too exciting this month, it was well worth the $21!

Do you get BoxyCharm?  What did you get this month?

Target Sonia Kashuk Beauty Box Review

IMG_1107

Target always has amazing beauty boxes each month!  They had a really nice Mother’s Day one that had a mix of skincare, hair care and body care products.  But I was so interested in trying this Sonia Kashuk beauty tool box.

These brushes are gorgeous and so soft! They are the Sonia Kashuk Blush Makeup Brush ($9 USD) and the Sonia Kashuk Angled Eyeshadow Makeup Brush ($13 USD).  Both are high quality at an affordable price.  I love the gold accents and the very soft and densly packed bristles. 

The blush brush works well for blush, contour or highlighter.  The angled brush is pretty large for using in the crease.  I tried it and I think it’s best for applying a base colored shadow all over the lid and maybe a shade on the lid.  Or, for blending shadows together.  I did put my crease color on the edge of the brush and applied it that way.  So it’s pretty versatile.

I love the marble pattern on this sponges.  It’s the Sonia Kashuk Makeup Blender Sponge – Marble ($7 USD).  I haven’t used it yet, but it is a pretty solid sponge.  I’m sure it will soften once wet.  I’ve been loving an IT Cosmetics brush (watch for my May faves) for applying foundation, but I do like using sponges.

Sonia Kashuk Slant Tip Tweezers ($10 USD) — Tweezers are so useful, and these are the price of the whole box!  I think I’m going to save these for my daughter.  She’s going away to college in a few months and I’m putting together a personal care box for her. I think the gold is really pretty, too.

Sonia Kashuk Quick Dry Makeup Brush Wipes ($9 USD) — I’ve tried one of these in a past Target beauty box and it was nice.  It’s good for giving brushes a quick cleanse or switching colors while doing my makeup.    

All in all, I really liked this box and think it was well worth the $10 price.  I will use almost everything.
