This month was my first month getting my Boxy Charm. A close friend of mine was visiting and would not stop raving about this subscription box. To be honest, I had actually never heard of it. I thought I was familiar with most of the beauty subscription services. I must have been living under a rock!! How did I not know that there was a subscription service out there that allowed you to get five full size products for $22 a month!! I signed up immediately! Have to say my first Boxy Charm did not disappoint!
Alamar Reina Del Caribe ◊ Eyeshadow Palette
Product Claims: This palette features 8 highly opaque shades, reminiscent of the beauty and culture of Cuba. Dive into the pigments and pearls found in the intense metallics, or ground your look with the warm richness of the creamy mattes. For a more intense application, refer to the shade names that feature a water droplet that can be used with a wet brush—the sun symbol, for application with a dry brush.
My Review: It lives up to the claims. The shadows are super pigmented! I wish there were a few more transition shades, but it is a fun palette and the quality is there!

Luxie ◊ 3 Piece Flawless Complexion Set
Product Claims: Handcrafted makeup brushes with high quality, soft synthetic bristles using hypoallergenic, vegan, and cruelty-free materials
Precision Foundation Face Brush 660 – With less bristle density, this brush is perfect for applying both powder and liquid foundations to create a soft, diffused makeup look
Tapered Highlighting Face Brush 522 – This fluffy, tapered brush allows you to seamlessly apply your favorite powder highlighter to the high points of your face or set your under eye makeup.
Duo Fiber Powder Brush 516 – Use this ultra-soft duo fiber brush to apply cream or powder makeup for a softer, flawless finish
My Review: These brushes were nothing special. I will gladly stick with my Morphe brushes. I mean, they’re okay. I would never pay the $42 price tag, however. The brushes are just meh. I feel like ELF Cosmetics makes some better brushes and the price tag is a lot easier to swallow.

Battington Monroe ◊ Silk Lashes
Product Claims: The 3-D multi-layered Battington Monroe Silk Lashes enhance your look with moderate length, adding a volume and length to your lashes. They’re handmade with 100% silk and impressive durability, allowing up to 25 applications with proper care.
My Review: I LOVE these lashes. They’re feather light and do not take long to adjust to on your eyes. They lasted all day. They claim that you can reuse them up to 25 times, but I have always had issues with wearing lashes more than once. I am sure that is on me, though.

Sol de Janeiro ◊ Brazilian Bum Bum Cream
Product Claims: Brazilian Bum Bum Cream is inspired by the Brazilians favorite feature – the bum bum! It’s creamy and rich in Guarana, a native Amazonian plant whose fruit contains one of the most potent forms of caffeine. The fast-absorbing texture contains just enough mica to add a perfect Brazilian glow, as the formula helps your body look and feel its smoothest and tightest. Pistachio caramel leaves skin delicately fragranced.
My Review: I am obsessed with this bum bum cream. The smell takes you straight to vacation. It’s rich and perfect for combating dry skin in the summer from all the sun exposure. It is hands down one of the best body creams on the market.

Jonteblu ◊ Water Proof Eyeliner
Product Claims: The 100% vegan, Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil glides on smooth for an elevated eye look. Use along the upper lash line or water line
My Review: Not a fan. The pigmentation is not there. I feel like I have to bare down too hard to get a good color payoff. When working around your eyes that is that last thing you want to worry about.
