June Boxycharm Review

Wednesday, June 27

Hey y'all! Today I'm sharing my Boxycharm subscription from the month of June.

Here's the scoop real quick, if you're new around here:

For $20/month, Boxycharm sends you 4-5, or really, 6+ full-sized beauty products, making it the best bang-for-your-buck subscription service, no contest! I know I always say this, but the price of one item always covers the price of the box; for example, the eyeshadow palette alone from this box is worth $28. I'm considering cancelling, but only because I'm living in excess. But I just can't cancel after this good of a month, the FOMO is way too strong! Check out my past months reviews here.


The theme for June was Caribbean Queen, which was very dreamy! Here's what I received:
Priya the Blog, Nashville beauty blog, Nashville beauty blogger, Boxycharm June 2018, Alamar Reina Del Caribe, Sol De Janerio, Luxie makeup brushes, subscription box review, Ofra, Jonteblu eyeliner, fake eyelashes, Battington, Boxycharm, subscription box, beauty buzz, Luxie brushes, Sol de Janerio Brazilian Bum Bum Cream, Battington Monroe Silk Lashes, Alamar Reina Del Caribe eyeshadow palette, Jonteblu, Ofra Liquid Lipstick,
+ Alamar Reina Del Caribe | retail value $28
I was familiar with this palette after seeing it hyped up by KathleenLights (who am I) and I was so excited to see it included this month. I wasn't prepared for how much I absolutely LOVE it. The colors are so unique and perfect for warm weather, the shimmers are GORGEOUS and so incredibly pigmented. It actually works just as well for a toned down daytime look as well; Coco-Taxi is the perfect transition shade, and I love Celia smudged under the eye. I'm actually obsessed with a pop of color under the eye, thanks to this palette. I've already used this several times! If you're looking for a unique palette to dip into this Summer, would totally recommend this.

+ Battington Monroe Silk Lashes | retail value: $28
This is fun - these lashes are made of silk and with proper care can be worn 25 times or more! I'm still not a fake eyelash pro, but I wore these all day Saturday at Pride! They are very pretty and natural looking, and by the end of the day were really irritating my eyes, but I'm almost sure that was user error (I had to get ready SO fast.) Looking forward to wearing them again and seeing how long and how well they last.

+ Luxie 3 Piece Flawless Complexion Set | retail value: $38
Luxie makes some of my favorite brushes because they are always super pretty and very soft. This set wasn't necessarily my favorite (just realizing I haven't tried the foundation brush yet - oops!) but I do like the 516 Duo Fibre for blush and the 522 Tapered Highlighter for setting my under eyes (and not for highlighter.)

+ Jont├ęblu Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil in Charcoal | retail value: $5
I don't have much to say about this! Works just fine as an eyeliner pencil, not super into gray eyeliner, but, if you're into that, it's fine.

+ Ofra Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick in Verona | $20
You already know what I'm going to say, right? Boxycharm is driving me CRAZY by including a neutral liquid lipstick every month (I swear, this is the third month in a row.) This is really my only gripe about the whole thing. I like this lipstick just fine, but, about like every other neutral liquid lipstick I have. Please please can we have a bright pink or red or literally anything else?

+ Sol de Janerio Brazilian Bum Bum Cream | retail value: $10
People rave about this as their absolute favorite body butter - it does smell amazing and isn't too greasy. I have dry spots and will always welcome a nice luxurious lotion! It's actually nice that this is travel size and perfect for throwing in a bag.

TOTAL VALUE: $129 !

Let me know what you received in your Boxycharm or other subscription service this month!
