Unboxing: Boxycharm June 2018

It’s my favorite time of the month again! My Boxycharm came earlier than expected!

The contents of my Boxycharm this month!

I haven’t been really excited about my Boxycharm in a while. But when I saw the spoilers for this palette I was so excited! It’s summer in Vegas so bring on the colors!

Just look at those colors!

Alamar Reina Del Caribe Eyeshadow Palette ($28): I was so excited about this palette and I still am! The shades look so pigmented! I’m excited to play with these and create some fun summer looks!

There are four metallics and four mattes with this palette. What I really find interesting is that there are pictures of either water droplets or suns next to the shade names. According to my handy information pamphlet, the water droplets signify the shades apply best with a wet brush and the suns signify that the shades apply best with a dry brush. I think that’s a great touch! It’s so simple but it shows that they put some thought into the palette and packaging.

Battington Monroe Silk Lashes($28): So, I have a confession to make: I don’t know how to apply fake lashes. I’ve watched some Youtube videos and failed miserably. I love the way they look, I just can’t apply them to save my life! I’ll have to give it another shot with these.

Sol De Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream($10): This stuff smells like my friend Alvin. That’s such a weird statement but it’s true. Alvin smells great so I’m not complaining. It’s still weird. Anyway, this is a body cream with guarana, caffeine and mica. Honestly this isn’t a lot of product for body cream, initially I thought it was a face cream. But I’m excited to try it out!

I cleaned the brushes up a bit because they were pretty frayed.

Luxie 3 Piece Flawless Complexion Brush Set($42): These brushes smell like paint. I’m not thrilled about that. Anyway, there are three brushes in this set: a foundation brush, a tapered highlighting brush and a powder brush. The powder brush is really flimsy so I don’t think I’ll use it much. The other brushes are soft but they got quite frayed in the packaging.

Based off of my first impression, these brushes are absolutely not worth $42! I also can’t find them on the Luxie website so maybe they are discontinued? I’ll have to look further into this…

Jonteblu Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil, Dark Brown ($5): I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again: I don’t like pencil eyeliner. I also don’t wear brown eyeliner. I’ll give it a try, but I’m not thrilled about this product.

Ofra Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick, Verona ($21): This color looks nice although I do have a lot of colors similar to this. The information palette says that this lipstick is moisturizing. Let’s hope so!

This box totals up to $134! Considering I only payed $21 for it that’s quite a deal! I do not think those brushes are worth $42 by any means, but, hey, I’ll use them.

This is just my first impression of my box! I’ll play with the products and write up reviews in a week or two!

Thank you for reading!

  1. I loved this months box! I was disappointed in the size of the Bum Bum cream but I have the full size and there is no way it could have fit in the box haha. The brushes are definitely a little flimsy but the powder brush was nice for lightly setting my face and the highlighter brush applied highlight surprisingly well. I’m not a fan of brown pencil eyeliner either!

    I’m already loving the spoilers for next month!

    1. Im very happy with this month’s box! 😊 The palette is for sure my favorite! It’s not that the brushes are the worst I’ve ever seen, but the retail price is crazy!
      I do wish the bum bum cream was larger but I get that it would make the box super heavy/ not fit!
      I just checked out the spoilers for next month! So exciting! 😻

  2. I love the palette this month!! The foiled shades are gorgeous!
    I think I’m the only person who doesn’t like the smell of the bum bum cream 😦 I was so excited to try it but it’s so strong, I used it before bed and could still smell it in the morning.
    I had the Luxie 660 brush from a past Ipsy bag and I absolutely love it, I did smell the paint smell when I first opened the package but after leaving them out I can’t smell it anymore.
    I have no idea what to do with the lashes, I’ve never worn falsies and I don’t even own lash glue lol!

    1. Haha I don’t have lash glue either! I guess I’ll buy some glue and give them a try?
      I’m obsessed with the palette!!! The colors are so beautiful!!
      I haven’t used the 660 brush yet but I really like the 522 highlighting brush! It’s so soft! And you’re right, the paint smell is gone.
      I do like the smell of the bum bum cream. I have to ask my friend if he uses it because it reminds me of him every time I use it! 😂

      1. A bunch of girls on Instagram recommended Duo lash glue to me, you can apparently find it at the drugstore. I’m going to have to go buy some!
        It is!! I used it today for my highlight 🙂
        haha that would be funny if it’s what he uses, so random!
