The items are neatly packaged.

The box is full of beauty essentials!

The July 2018 theme is Roadtrippin’!

There’s another card…

…and it contains info about promos, giveaways, and the links to their social media accounts.

Everything in my July 2018 BOXYCHARM! There are variations in the box – see them here.

Crown Brush Fuego Eyeshadow Palette ($29.99) The palette is made up of rich warm tone copper shades with 5 mattes and 5 shimmer finish.

Subscribers will receive this or the Tarte Ready, Set, Radiant Mist ($25).

It is paraben-free, creamy, highly pigmented with endless possibilities for eye look combinations, suitable for every skin color. They are all perfect to blend.

It’s advised to use a primer before applying the eyeshadow so it will make the colors more intense. Also, use different brushes for packing the eyeshadow and for blending.

You can also use a wet brush if you want a glammed up look or make a bold statement. Swatches below!

NOTE Cosmetics Blush In Desert Rose ($11.99) In all boxes.  It’s a beautiful black compact with a mirror and separate compartment for a brush that is exclusively for the blush. This is such a perfect travel companion for a quick sun-kissed fix.

The blush is highly pigmented and long wearing. Argan oil is the key ingredient, which makes it very creamy. It is also buildable so start it light and blend it flawlessly to avoid patchiness.

It has a warm terracotta shade that suits my skin tone and different from the usual pink shade of blush.


It has a wee little brush on the inside. I wouldn’t use it if I were at home, but on the road for a touch-up? Sure.

All these shades are so intense!

Chella Eyebrow Cream In Taupe ($26)In all boxes. Rich and velvety, this eyebrow cream has an innovative formula that just glides upon application.

It blends really well into a natural and effortless look to your brows. A little product goes a long way. Once set, the formula can last all day and all night without smudging.

Dr. Brandt Needles No More No More Baggage Eye De-Puffing Gel ($42) It’s an under-eye solution that reduces the appearance of bags, dark circles, and puffiness for a more healthy youthful look. The formula has a gel consistency that claims to be a quick fix solution for aging and tired-looking eyes. It is easily absorbed by the under-eyes and never sticky or tacky. Just apply religiously and let the product do the rest.

Subscribers received this or the Farmacy Bright On Massage-Activated Vitamin C Mask($42).

It is free of parabens, sulfates, and phthalates. Instead, it was made using Filmatrix technology which is obtained from a combination of algae, plant extracts, antioxidant botanicals, caffeine, and peptides. They work together to tighten and smoothen the appearance of the eye contour. It also restores the elasticity and firmness, as well as reduce the bags and puffiness while brightening the under eye area.

Wander Beauty Unlashed Volume And Curl Mascara ($24) In all boxes. An award-winning, glossy, black and multitasking mascara that intensifies, defines, volumizes, lengthens and curls lashes. It also conditions and strengthens the lashes by having a perfect blend of vitamins, seeds and leaf extracts. You can use the smaller bristles at the tip of the brush to easily curl and lift your inner and bottom lashes. Put a second coat to the tips of your lashes for an added curl. It is long-wearing and gives the drama your eyes need without ever clumping even when you layer it.

This box gave us the essentials for our travel escapades. It’s the perfect time to try new products while we enjoy our road trips this summer! All can fit our makeup bags and everything served a different purpose. The eyeshadow palette, eyebrow cream, and mascara will certainly make my eyes on fleek while the blush will complete my on-the-go road trip look! I also have an eye de-puffing gel that will make me look refreshed all the time even after long drives. The box has products worth a little over $100 and they’re all a hit! I was a little bummed not to get the Tarte spray or Farmacy mask (overall I dislike these major variations) but I’m still happy with my box this month.

    Where does it say the cheaply made eyeshadow palette is “cruelty free”?

    • Hello Subscription

      Omg I must have meant to type paraben free – it obviously doesn’t say cruelty free and it’s made in China. Thanks for pointing this out!!
