It is gorgeous outside as I write this but it is so warm in Toronto! I love it! Although I received my BoxyCharm about a week and a half ago, I’ve been pretty busy so I finally made time to post this unboxing!
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. The theme for this month is “Caribbean Queen”. The products are very Caribbean inspired and makes me feel summer vibes!
ALL PRICES IN USD CONVERTED TO CAD AT THE END
Alamar Cosmetics Reina Del Caribe Palette
MSRP: $28.00 USD
I am so in love with the packaging of this palette! It has 8 intensely pigmented shades, with colours that are inspired by Cuban beauty and culture. I swatched a few colours and thought they were so pretty and bold! I really can’t wait to start using this on my eyes.
I’ll have to share a look on Insta when I do. Beside each shade, name is either a sun or water droplet symbol. All of them can be used dry, but the ones with a water symbol can be used with a wet brush.
Battington Monroe Silk Lashes
MSRP: $28.00 USD
These are handmade 100% silk lashes which explains why they are so pricey. I probably would never pick them up, but I’m willing to try them since they came in my BoxyCharm. I think the packing is really nice on this too. The lashes themselves are really soft and look very natural looking.
Sol De Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream
MSRP: $10.00 USD
I LOVE this cream! I have a large tub of this in my bathroom that I love using it all over my body. It leaves me feeling really hydrated. This contains a tiny amount of mica that when applied over the body gives a little glow (it looks like micro-sparkle). The scent of pistachio caramel is soooooo good! I love this little tub because I can take this with me when travelling!
Luxie 3 Piece Flawless Complexion
MSRP: $42.00 USD
I love Luxie brushes and I’m really excited to receive them in this month’s box! The 660 Precision Foundation Brush has less bristle density that makes it good for applying powder and liquid foundation to create a soft, diffused look. The 522 Tapered Highlighting Brush is really fluffy to apply highlight on the high points on the face. The 516 Duo Fiber Powder Brush is good for applying cream or powder products for a softer diffused look. Although the 522 and 516 look the same, the 516 does feel denser which is good for applying cream products. If I used cream blush I might like this more. I have a mineral foundation that I want to try the 660 brush with and I actually want to use the 516 to buff out eyeshadow to give me a softer look. I wish at least one brush was a bit larger to make it more suited for foundation application.
Jonteblu Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil
MSRP: $5.00 USD
I love brown eyeliners and as I use up the one I currently have, I’m glad to have a new one ready as a backup. This is 100% vegan and waterproof.
Ofra Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick in Verona
MSRP: $21.00 USD
With the bright eyeshadow that came in the palette, I can understand that BoxyCharm decided to add a nude lip colour. I like getting Ofra items because I would not necessarily buy anything from them although I hear really good things about their products. I think it’s because I’d rather go into a store and buy their products to test out and they don’t sell in any store I know of.
I am so happy with this box! It really stuck to the theme, offering items that remind me of the Caribbean. I also like that I can create a look using the items offered. It was a really well thought out box! Total Value $134.00 ($176.29 CAD!)
