Hey guys! Sorry for being really late on this post. Last week I was helping out with my school’s Frosh Week so I was super busy. I still wanted to make a post about my August Boxycharm because it had some really amazing products!
The theme this month was Beach Please which I think is a great theme for summer.
The first item in the box is probably my favourite in the box. It is the Tarte Rainforest of the Sea: Volume II eyeshadow palette. The shades are cool toned and are of a nice range to make various looks. There is also a mixture of shimmers and mattes. This is my first Tarte palette so I was surprised when I found out that the eye shadows are not as powdered compared to other brand’s shadows. This just means I have to dip my brush in a little more in comparison to other shadows, but a pro is that there is not powder all my the place. Overall I really like this palette. I will definitely continue to use it and might consider buying another Tarte Palette in the future. Price: $36.00 USD
Next I got a Waterproof Gel Eyeliner by Bellapierre. This is a mediocre product. It works well but it isn’t the best eyeliner I’ve ever used. As well, I feel like black eyeliner is not the most exciting product to receive in a beauty box. Price: $15.00 USD
This month’s lip product is the #GRLPWR Liquid Lipstick from The Beauty Crop. I got the shade Date Night. I actually enjoy this Liquid Lipstick. It’s a nice shade and is comfortable to wear. It did wear off when I ate food and drank water, but it didn’t wear away weirdly. Overall a pretty good lippie. Price: $14.95
Next I got the Moda Pro 3-Piece Brush Set from Royal & Langnickel. I am always happy to get brushes in my box just because you can never have too many brushes! I was so excited that I used the brushes before taking a picture of them! I really enjoy these brushes, they are super soft and apply product really nicely. The set included a pointed blush, a chisel blender (good for contour) and a crease brush. Royal & Langnickel makes some great brushes! Price: $26.00 USD
Finally I got a set of Pro Eyelashes from PUR Cosmestics. I am really excited to have these but I have yet to try them on. I don’t often wear false lashes, and I just haven’t had the time/chance to try them out. False lashes, especially expensive ones, are not something I would normally buy so it is nice to receive a pair in the box for me to try out. Price: $14.00 USD
Overall I think this was a pretty good box. There was a variety of products and most of them worked very well! Total price: $105.95
Now that I am back to school, I am hoping to post more regularly once I fall into a schedule. As well, I have an exciting back to school haul coming soon!
