boxycharm august 2015 box

BoxyCharm is a makeup and beauty subscription box that sends out 4-5 deluxe and full size samples every month. They’re mostly full-size products (4 full size and one deluxe sample) and the boxes have been able to maintain a consistently high value. The outer box has been redesigned!

The August theme was Gorgeous Globetrotter:

Book a ticket, pack a bag, and let wanderlust be your guide. This month, we’re seeing the world and exploring destinations unknown. Globe-Trot Gorgeously!

Everything in the August box! FYI there are often 2 variations of this box, although I haven’t seen anything different this month.

Coastal Scents Revealed 3 Palette ($19.95) If you are an UD Naked fan but can’t stomach the price tag, the Revealed palettes always show up in this box. Since the box is only $2 more than the palette, you know this is an awesome deal.  A great way to experiment with all those looks on Youtube 🙂

So Susan Statement Skin ($20) A great highlighting crayon to add to your contouring arsenal. The card gave great tips on using it, too!

MicaBeauty Gel Eyeliner ($35)

SETA Eyeliner Brush ($16)

So nice to get these as a set. The brush has an extremely thin pointy (synthetic, which I prefer!) brush that’s perfect for applying gel eyeliners like the Mica Beauty one! However, I wouldn’t call this eyeliner $35 – because it normally comes with its own brush, which is missing in this sample. It’s also a 3g pot instead of the 4g full-size, so I think this was a misrepresentation of the value, and I’ll call it $15 for the total.

Nios Shield Leave-In Conditioner ($26) This is the product I’m most excited about – frizz control, conditioning, and sunblock, all in one! I’m not sure if the sunblock is really enough to protect your scalp, but it should protect your color. Neat idea!

Another great box with a high value – about $97 (see my note about the eyeliner above). I personally wouldn’t pay $100 for these products, but for $21 I’m in! I also think this is a great box for someone who is tired of Ipsy – the products are pretty similar, but are almost always full-size, and the value/price ratio is on par.  Note that the Charms program is back online – and you can now skip or cancel this box online!
