BoxyCharm is a great beauty subscription box and one of the best out there right now! I had meant to cancel but forgot, and was so glad for one of the items in the box. The others are all pretty much duplicates for me, but that really is NOT saying anything at all. I am impressed with the full-sized items.IMG_4410

ModelCo. Cheek & Lips Tint ($22) I don’t love this on my lips but it’s a fun product! Also full size!

Ofra Lipliner ($13) I don’t know why they’d send me a nearly identical lip pencil to last month. This was a fail.

Tarina Tarantino Conditioning Lip Sheen ($22) OMG isn’t this gorgeous? I love everything about this! The color, the conditioning, the packaging! It’s amazing! Why did Sephora boot TT? I have no idea, love their stuff!


Enter Pronoun Bronzer in Blowtorch ($35) This is actually a DARK bronzer (lighting troubles) and great for real contouring because it’s really matte.  It’s also in a serious compact! This is really nice and I was happy to get it. Back to YouTube for more bronzer tutorials (seriously watch them, maybe 3 years from now I will make one….). You could use it as an actual bronzer too but I think most people use it for contour?

Morphe Brushes Deluxe Powder Dome Brush ($19.99) I was so pleased to get a brush that I could actually use to apply the bronzer! It was random I think but it totally worked with this!

So, great box, a few duplicates, the real error was sending out a dupe to their prior month’s box. Hoping to see some September box spoilers before deciding on the next box, but usually I love one thing enough to keep this box. What do you think?

    It’s been almost three years.., hope you’re ready to make that tutorial 🙂

    I ended up subscribing to this box because I wanted a powder brush. Figured that would cost me $20 anyway, so might as well get the other stuff too! Hope I get a good color of the TT lipstick… And I also need serious bronzing tutorials!

      Same here. I subscribed for the lipstick, $22 retail so the box pays for itself :). The brush looks really nice, can’t wait to try it. I am really impressed with the amount of stuff you get in Boxycharm for $21. Plus, I like their selections. I haven’t received my box yet, but when I subbed yesterday, they said the August box was still available (yeah!)

        Oh I totally failed to put that in! Yes box is still available and you can always check in on facebook to see if it’s sold out!
