Unboxing Boxycharm, August 2017

Price: $21.00 USD (+$5.00 shipping to Canada) Number of items: 4-5 full-size items.
Boxycharm is a monthly subscription box of full-size makeup, skincare and beauty tools. I’m super excited with the items I’ve received this month and think it works really well with the theme “Beach Please”.

ALL PRICES IN USD, CONVERTED TO CAD AT THE END

Royal & Langnickel, Moda Pro, 3-piece Brush Set
Retail Price: $26.00 USD
Boxycharm_Aug 2017_LBL1I really love the feel of these brushes. The set includes a tapered blush brush, chisel blender contour brush and a crease brush. I’m not sure how to use the chisel brush but the other two are definitely going in with my brush set. I love the texture of the barrel, giving me a good grip and making them feel really luxurious.

Bella Pierre Waterproof Gel Eyeliner
Retail Price: $15.00 USD
Boxycharm_Aug 2017_LBL3I haven’t used this eyeliner on my eyes but I did swatch it on my hand and it looks intensely black. I’ve received so many black eyeliners in subscription boxes I may never have to buy one ever again! LOL! I love receiving black eyeliners because I know I’ll use them.

PUR The Complexion Authority Pro Eyelashes in Diva
Retail Price: $14.00 USD

These false lashes are so long and wispy. They are really pretty and I really want to give them a try although I don’t have anywhere to wear them to and I suck at applying false lashes. I will have to give them a try the next time I have an event.

The Beauty Crop #GRLPWR Liquid Lipstick in DateNight
Retail Price: $14.95 USD

I thought at first this was another dark nude but it has a hint of berry that makes it a little bit closer to my natural lip shade. It looks red in my swatch below, but in person it is more pink. I wore this right after I swatched it and I loved the way it looked on my lips. It also felt really comfortable. This is enriched with Shea Butter and Vitamin E.

Tarte Rainforest of the Sea: Volume II
Retail Price: $36.00 USD
Boxycharm_Aug 2017_LBL6This was the star of the box for me this month. I actually already own this palette, getting it on sale on the Tarte website a few months ago. You can read the post and everything else I got here. This palette is still available on Tarte’s website and Sephora so it’s really sweet that subscribers got their hands on this palette. Since I already own this, I passed it along to my sister but I’m so impressed the Boxycharm was able to include it. The colours are nice and neutral and I think it has great pigmentation and is easy to blend.

My Thoughts
Boxycharm has once again proven that it’s a subscription box that has something really great to offer. I received items that I can definitely see myself enjoying. I am really excited about using the brush set and I’m already loving the liquid lipstick. The false lashes will probably get worn around the holidays and I am so happy I got something in the box I can share with my sister. Total value: $105.95 USD ($132.58 CAD).

Did you get Boxycharm this month? What do you think of the items in this month’s box?

Lots of Love,
Dal

    • I am pretty happy and impressed with this month’s box.

      Being in Canada I find there are always boxes that don’t ship to me either! Hopefully Boxycharm starts shipping to the UK! They really do give the best value for boxes in my opinion.

  1. I’ve been absolutely loving your unboxing posts – it’s made me seriously keen to find a subscription box that ships to SA. Unfortunately, all of them have wait lists 😦
    Thanks for an awesome blog!

  2. I almost subscribed when I saw the spoilers! That tarte palette! It’s so nice! The brushes look great too and I think the lashes look really pretty! I’m no good at applying them either. Subscription boxes really love sending out black eyeliner! XD At least you don’t have to go out and buy one yourself haha.
