It’s halfway through July and I’m finally posting my June Boxycharm review….. Sorry guys! It’s been a hectic summer working full time, volunteering part time, trying to have a social life and run a blog. My next post I am definitely doing a Q+A/FAQ/Life update so you can better understand why I will go 15 days without posting haha!
Anyways, I know June is long gone, and I have actually received my July Boxycharm, but I still wanted to provide you guys with some reviews on the products that I got in my box. I also had written this blog post and just hadn’t posted it soooo here it is!
The big palette in the box is the Alamar Cosmetics Reina Del Caribe Vol.1 palette. This palette has great pigmentation. The shimmer shades are amazing both wet and dry. As well, there are some bold colours in this palette but they are bright and pigmented. That is an amazing accomplishment because bright colours can sometimes be dull or dusty. The quality of the shadows are great. Of course, I am mainly a neutral kind of girl, so I don’t get a bunch of use out of these every day. But this palette does make me want to play with more colour, and I feel very inspired! Price: $28.00 USD
The next product is the reason why this blog post too so long to write. I don’t wear fake eyelashes every day, so I was waiting for the chance to wear the Battington Lashes that I received – in the style Monroe – which didn’t happen until Canada Day (July 1). This were nice lashes though! They were easy to apply and looked very nice on, and I think I will get a bunch of uses out of this pair. Price: $28 USD
I am almost finish the small container of the Sol De Janerio Brazilian Bum Bum Cream that I received. I want more of this stuff. The scent is amazing. If you haven’t smelled this stuff yet you have to go to Sephora and smell if for yourself. The scent lingers on the body for a little bit, but isn’t so strong that it gives me a headache. It also absorbs into the skin quite quickly. Now this isn’t the ~best~ cream I’ve ever used, like I don’t notice a huge difference in how my skin feels compares to other creams, but the scent just makes it so enjoyable to use. Price: $10 USD for 250ml, $25 CAD for 250 ml
Next is a three piece set of Luxie Complexion Brushes. Now if you’ve followed my blog for a bit, you know I love Luxie brushes, and these brushes are no exception. They are so soft, they blend amazingly and do not shed. The three piece set comes with a powder brush, a highlight brush and a precision foundation brush. Now I use the precision foundation brush to blend out my concealer and it does a great job! I have also really liked the highlight brush as well. The powder brush I find is look fluffy for powder, but I want to still try it with bronzer and/or blush. Price: $49.99 USD for the set.
By far the worst product in the box is the Jonteblu waterproof eyeliner pencil. To be frank, it sucks and I probably won’t use it again. First of all, I got the shade charcoal, and honestly who uses grey eyeliner?? Besides the weird shade, I had to warm it up on the back of my hand before putting it in the waterline, and then it disappeared within an hour. Not a fan of this eyeliner. Price: $5.00
The final product was an Ofra Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick, and I received the shade Verona, which is a nude brown. I have worn other liquid lipsticks from Ofra and I love the formula. They are comfortable and not drying. I find that the colour does fade a bit after eating/drinking, but that is something I can put up with since they are so nice on the lips. Now I didn’t wear this lippie yet because I find it to be very brown on me, but it is going to be great for the fall! Price: $21.00 USD
And that was my June Boxycharm! Overall price was ~$134, and I am pretty happy with the products that I got.
Let me know what you thought down below! ALSO write any questions that you guys have for my future Q+A/FAQ post!
