Boxycharm - June 2017

Boxycharm is a subscription box service, that sends full size and deluxe sample size items to you each month. I've noticed majority of the time, you will get full sized products, and you receive 5 each month. It is $21 USD a month, plus shipping. There are discounts if you sign up for 3 months, 6 months, or 12 months. I originally signed up for 3 months, and it renewed for another 3 months automatically. Everyone generally gets the same box each month, with a few variations such as lipstick colours. Or a lipstick vs lip gloss. That being said, let's take a look at what I received for my June Boxycharm!

As always, there is a theme of the month. For June, the theme was Downtown Charm.

We got a 5 products (7 if you count the sheet masks separately) and a good variety at that. So let's just get right into everything!

 An eyeshadow palette and lip product.

RealHer - Eye Shadow Palette 1 (Retail Price $28.00)
This palette has richly-pigmented hues and sexy combinations designed for all eye colours and skin tones. Delight in long-wearing, crease-resistant, fade-resistant, buildable colours in textures ranging from velvety smooth  mattes to metallic sheens.

I was hoping for palette 3, it had more pink/purples in it. This is still pretty though. I didn't do any swatches for this post because I plan on doing a full review on it separately.

OFRA Cosmetics - Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick in Santa Ana (Retail Price $19.90)
OFRA Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick is a one-step full lip colour that does not feather. This vibrant colour will give you a vivacious new look. It is creamy and soft in texture, moisturizing the lips and creating a long lasting lipstick effect. No need to use lip liner, this liquid lipstick gives a beautiful edge to your lip look!

They sent this liquid lipstick our in two shades. I think most Canadians received the same lip colour (Santa Ana) and eye shadow palette (1) which was kind of disappointing to those that were looking to trade with others. Anyway, this is the darker of the two lip colours, and I was hoping for the lighter one. This is a tad dark, but I could see it being perfect for the fall. I can do a separate review on this based on wear time, and what it actually looks like on my lips.

Artist Couture - Diamond Glow Powder (Retail Price $26.99)
This shimmering powder packs a high glow with a gorgeous sheen, suitable only for true glow getters! This all-natural, loose powder is finely milled for flawless application. With versatility in use, it is suitable for light to dark skin tones. This product can be used on your face to highlight, or on your eyes, lips, and body.

This stuff is VERY shimmery. Too shimmery. It is a pretty shade, but I can't see myself ever using this as a highlight. I will see if I can pass it on. If not, it would make a pretty inner corner sparkle, but it would take ages to get through.

Luxie Beauty - Rose Gold Pro Precision Tapered Face Brush 640 (Retail Price $24.00)
Sweep the competition away with this tapered brush! Perfect for dusting away powders, or applying highlighter, this brush screams versatility.

I love Luxie brushes, and would love to see more in these boxes. Anyway, this is super soft. It came a little disfigured in the box, but I'm sure it will fix itself.

Biobelle Cosmetics - 3 Sheet Masks (Retail Price $14.97)
Biobelle's sheet masks give your skin an instant boost, while deeply hydrating and evening your skin tone, revealing gorgeous, glowing skin! Biobelle's Award-winning TENCEL fiber adheres perfectly and delivers antioxidants to your skin faster and deeper.

I love sheet masks, and it's awesome they sent us a package of three to try out! I haven't decided if I will do separate reviews on these, just because I find most sheet masks give me the same outcome. If I feel they need their own reviews, I will do that.. however, if they aren't anything special, they will  make an appearance in my empties posts. I'm really excited to try them though!

The total retail value of this box was $113.86, which is awesome. I feel like I will get use out of everything (except maybe the diamond glow powder, but I'm on the fence about that one) which makes me happy because I've had some not so great (to me) boxes in the past. We've already seen one sneak peek for July, and I'm hoping each month gets better and better!
