BoxyCharm Subscription Box Review — July 2019

IMG_1142

Hey all! I recently received my July BoxyCharm! I always watch for the spoilers so I basically knew what I am getting. But, there were a few different variations this month.

I’ve been subscribed to BoxyCharm for about a year and a half now and really enjoy it. Boxycharm is just $21 a month for 4-5 beauty items, most of them full-sized.  It is a nice way to try new makeup and beauty tools.

My version is 4. This month I received:

Koh Gen Do Spa Cleansing Water Cloths — $17

Elemis Superfood Vital Veggie Mask – $35

Butter London Natural Goddess Eyeshadow Palette – $32

Luna by Luna Lip Gloss in Venus — $18

Luxie Brush Trio – $30

Box value — $132

This is a really pretty summer palette!  I love the wooden packaging and the nice mirror.  The shades are mostly shimmer and there’s a couple of mattes.  I didn’t swatch it because I don’t know if I’ll keep it or give it away. I’ve recently purchased a few palettes and don’t really need another one.IMG_1144

I love the packaging and the handles of these brushes!  So cool and summery!  The brushes are 246 Precision Crease, 250 Large Eye Blending and 510 Foundation.

I enjoy Luxie brushes.  I may keep these or give them away.

I am very excited about both of these!  I’ve been wanting to try the Koh Gen Do wipes.  I’ve tried items from this brand years ago and really enjoyed them.  They are all natural and look very fancy!

I love the Elemis products I’ve tried, and I’m excited to try out this mask.  Maybe I’ll do it Sunday.  I’ve been bad about using masks lately and need to get back into them.  This is supposed to nourish, smooth and brighten, for softer, smoother, more radiant skin.  Yes please!

I’ve never heard of this brand before Luna by Luna, but I really like this gloss!  It’s hydrating and so easy for a bronzey summer look!  I have received so many glosses from boxes lately, but I do really like this one.


I think this is a pretty great box!  I will definitely use the gloss, Elemis mask and face wipes.  I’m still deciding if I will keep or give away the brushes and palette.  But everything is so nice!

BoxyCharm is killing it lately!  Do you get this box?  What was in yours this month?

Ipsy Glam Bag Subsription Box Review – September 2018

Hi All!  I’m back with another subscription box review — Ipsy Glam Bag.  I subscribed to Ipsy years ago, but stopped.  I decided I wanted to try it again to try new products. They also have a larger box available starting next month, the Ipsy Glam Bag Plus.  I just got on the waiting list for that, so I’m not sure when I will receive it.

Ipsy Glam Bag is $10 a month for 5 deluxe and sometimes full-sized items.  It used to be only makeup, but it seems to now be skincare and makeup. You can sign up for it here.

If you do sign up with my link, I’ll get pushed higher up on the waiting list for the Ipsy Glam Bag Plus and that would be amazing! And then you would be eligible for the Glam Bag Plus waitlist! The Glam Bag Plus is $25 a month and looks to be 5 full-sized items.

Here are the products I received in my first bag:

The bag is super cute!  It’s nice quality, too.  I was pleasantly surprised!

These are the products with the descriptions from the Ipsy website:

Elizabeth Mott Face Primer — The silky, lightweight formula also shuts down shine and helps minimize the appearance of fine lines and pores (it’s like a real-life Insta-filter!).It’s waterproof, so there’s no chance of your makeup sliding off if you get caught in the rain.

APTO Healing Turmeric Mask — This lightweight mask is packed with natural, skin-healing ingredients. Turmeric and neem travel deep into your skin’s pores to draw out impurities. They also have strong antibacterial properties and help reduce redness and inflammation, making them great acne-fighters. Azelaic acid gently sloughs away dead skin cells (no scrubbing needed) to reveal the fresh skin beneath and help restore your glow. Colloidal sulfur helps removes blackheads, deeply cleanses pores, and absorbs excess oil.

The Creme Shop 2-in-1 Facial Foam Cleanser — Packed with ingredients your skin loves—like green tea, rice water and white lily—this gentle, foamy formula is actually fun to use. Green tea is super rich in antioxidants and vitamins that help firm up and rejuvenate skin. Rice water and white lily help calm redness and treat acne scars.

MPrincess Loose Eyeshadow in Pretty Petal — This loose pigment shadow builds and blends really easily, so you can go for a lowkey or amped up eye look depending on your mood. It’s *so* fun to experiment with and plays well with your other shadows. (You can create endless looks by mixing and matching.) We love the dusty rose shade, which makes all eye colors really pop.

Luxie Beauty Wonder Woman Detail Tapered Blender 140 — LUXIE BEAUTY teamed up with Warner Brothers to bring us this limited-edition, Wonder Woman-inspired makeup brush. The synthetic bristles are soft and light yet pick up just the right amount of product with ease. The pointed brush head is great for targeting small areas (like applying concealer to your undereyes and inner corners of your nose).

When I first saw what I was getting, I wasn’t very excited.  From what I remember, Ipsy was a makeup subscription.  But it seems like now they include skincare.  Which I really don’t need as I have tons of skincare (and tons of makeup to be honest).  But I am excited to try the mask, it sound sounds like it will work well with my skin.  I don’t need a cleanser, but I like K-Beauty and I will keep it for travel. I have already tried the primer and it is pore filling.  And that brush!  I love Luxie and it’s really soft.  The shadow is a shimmery pink.  I don’t know if I will keep it or give it away, but it looks pretty!

I am happy with this bag!  Do you get Ipsy Glam Bag?  What did you get this month?
