Unboxing and First Impressions, Monthly Watch Club

It’s always fun to try something a little different than the usual unboxing here on the blog. Today I’m sharing an unboxing for box that I’m really intrigued by. That’s the Monthly Watch Club* box.
Monthly Watch Club (1)

Monthly Watch Club is a subscription service where every month you receive one custom made watch. They work with watch designers around the world to bring subscribers affordable watches. You can choose whether you want a male or female subscription.

This costs $39.99 CAD plus $7.00 shipping within Canada.

I’ve never heard of a watch subscription service so I was curious about the quality and style of the watch. My watch was received in a Canada Post bag wrapped tightly in bubble wrap. The black box that it came in is sturdy with the Monthly Watch Club name and logo on the top. I really appreciate this packaging because it makes the watch an easy gift or a nice way to store the watch when not in use.

Monthly Watch Club (6)

The watch I received has a genuine leather brown strap. It has a beautiful gold face with Roman numeral dials. On the front and back of the watch is the Monthly Watch Club logo which I think is a nice touch.

Monthly Watch Club (4)
I like that it’s a smaller and sleeker watch with a thin strap because that’s what I would go for. I usually wear my smartwatch every day but I would switch it up for a watch like this for when I’m dressing up.
Monthly Watch Club (3)After seeing the watch in person I can imagine a subscription like this would be great for someone who enjoys watches and accessories because it’s a good quality and the style is nice (you can also find styles from previous months on the website).

There are different subscription levels (month to month, 3 month prepay, 6 month prepay or 12 month prepay). So if you only want to add a few or many watches to your collection you could easily do that.

Monthly Watch Club

I thought of this as a good gift option for some of the men and women in my life because they can be difficult to shop for. Something like this is easy because they would get a new style every month to enjoy and I could pick a subscription option that fit my budget.

You can find more information and sign up for monthly watch club here.

Other Things to Note

  • based out of Calgary, Alberta (go Canada!)
  • each watch comes with a 100 day warranty
  • ship internationally
  • 10% of all profits go toward Kiva, which help people build businesses around the world. I love a company that gives back

Monthly Watch Club (7)

My Thoughts

I personally don’t see the need for so many watches for myself, but I can think of a few people who would love this. I definitely think this is a great gift option for some of the people in my life who I know would enjoy receiving a new watch in the mail every month. The watch is better quality than I thought for the price so I would be super happy gifting a subscription like this.

Would you be excited to receive a new watch every month? What would be your favourite type of subscription box?

Lots of Love,
Dal

*I received this item complimentary for reviewing purposes. My opinions are honest and my own.

Unboxing Boxycharm, November 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. The theme for this month is “Sweater weather”. I do love wearing comfy sweaters as the weather gets colder.

Prices are in American Dollars, converted to Canadian at the end

What I received;

Luxie Beauty Quad Eye Travel Set
Retail Price: $32.00 USD
Unboxing Boxycharm_November_LBL5
I used to envy anyone who got Luxie brushes in their Ipsy bags because I never did! Luckily, now I’m collecting them in my Boxycharm! This is a set of four travel-size eye brushes. These are super soft brushes and I love that they are travel size because the smaller handle is easier for me to use. I’m very excited about this item and can’t wait to use them!

CoverFX Illuminating Setting Spray
Retail Price: $31.00 USD
Unboxing Boxycharm_November_LBL6

With dry skin, anything that offers to hydrate and illuminate is a plus for me. If you watch Kathleen Lights on Youtube you would have heard her mention that this is full of micro glitter so you really need to shake this well to disperse them in the liquid. I love using setting sprays so I’m happy to get this.

WinkyLux Kitten Palette
Retail Price: $25.00 USD

The packaging on this palette is so adorable! When I saw this I immediately thought of my sister because she loves cats and with her birthday in November, I decided to gift this to her. So, you probably won’t see it again on the blog unless I have the opportunity to borrow it for some time to test out the formula. If you were interested, you can click here to see some swatches. There are a few reviews on their website, but it seems to be pretty positive. It says to be soft like kittens and highly pigmented.

LAQA & CO Cloud Lips in Storm
Retail Price: $17.00 USD
Unboxing Boxycharm_November_LBL2
This is an airy matte lipstick that is highly pigmented. I like the packaging although for such a dark colour I think the actual lipstick is too thick. It might be best applied with a brush for me.

KNC Beauty Collagen Lip Masks
Retail Price: $15.00 USD
Unboxing Boxycharm_November_LBL1

You apply this jelly lip mask for 15-20 mins to condition, moisturize, plump and hydrate the lips. I’m actually wearing one now as I type and so far it seems OK. It sticks to the lips fine and can feel a little tingle (probably the plumping ingredients at work). It’s recommended to use this 2-3 times a week. A lot of serum remained on the tray so I think I could reuse the mask a second time if I put it back into the packaging. I’ll update you on my thoughts in my empties.

My Thoughts
Every month I’m always very happy with the items in my Boxycharm. For about $30-35 Canadian Dollars a month it’s worth it. I find a lot of the items make really good gifts (such as the palette). I’m excited to try the setting spray and the eye brushes. Total Value: $120 USD ($153.25 CAD)!!

Did you get Boxycharm this month? What did you think of your box?

Unboxing Topbox, November 2017

Price: $12.00 CAD (plus tax, free shipping) 4 items.

Topbox is a Canadian monthly beauty subscription service. Each month you have the option of getting a surprise box or to swap it for a prive box where all the products are from one brand and you know what they are. This month I opted for a surprise box!

I usually receive the Topbox spoiler email before the bag arrives in the mail and I ALWAYS read it! haha! This month, I tried hard not to open that email until after I saw the items so I could actually enjoy the surprise and I did!

Prices are in Canadian Dollars

What I received;

LARITZY Cosmetics Silicone Makeup Blender
Full size: $14.00, this is a full size item
Unboxing Topbox_November_LBL9

I once bought one of these silicone style blenders from Amazon and it was awful! It really just made my foundation look like it was sitting on my face and not blended in. This blender has a lot more bounce than the Amazon one does but I wasn’t too excited when I saw this in the bag. I did read in the description that these are useful for applying skincare too and I thought that might be better. I’m sure it would be great for spreading around a mask or something so I’ll give it a shot!

First Aid Beauty 5 in 1 Bouncy Mask
Full size: $38.00 (1.7 oz), Sample size: $7.60 (.34 oz)
Unboxing Topbox_November_LBL4
This is an item I’m excited about! This mask should nourish, calm, firm, plump and refine. I do enjoy First Aid Beauty products and I really hope that this delivers on all the things it promises to do. I also enjoy that this is safe for sensitive skin, is hypoallergenic and fragrance free!

Morgan Taylor Nail Lacquer in All Wrapped Up
Full size: $15.83, this is a full size item
Unboxing Topbox_November_LBL6

I’ve recieved Morgan Taylor Nail Lacquers before and I really enjoy this formula. Yes, I don’t wear nail polish, but my toes are just as important! haha! I might actually wear this for a holiday party or something because it’s just so festive! It’s a deep grey/purple with a lot of silver glitter.

Professional Sebastian Shaper Plus Extra Hold Hairspray
Full size: $24.14 (10.6 oz), Sample size: $3.10 (1.36 oz)
Unboxing Topbox_November_LBL8

I haven’t received a hair spray in any of my boxes in a long time so I’m pretty happy to get one now. I did a little search for this online and found that it was sold at Ulta (hurray that Ulta now ships to Canada!) and it has a 4.5 star rating. I don’t fuss too much with my hair, but again with the holidays around the corner I will use this to hold my styles in place. This is meant to be a 24hr hold (who tests this?) that’s not stiff or sticky. It’s also good for high humid areas, I’ll have no problem with that during winter!

My Thoughts
I’m super happy with my Topbox items this month. I get stuff that I’ll be able to wear/use for the holidays and winter rescue (aka the face mask). I’m not the most excited about the blender, but I’ll try it for skincare. Total Value: $40.53.

Did you get Topbox this month? Any items you are excited for?

Unboxing Topbox, October 2017

Price: $12.00 CAD (plus tax, free shipping) 4 items.

Topbox is a Canadian monthly beauty subscription service. Each month you have the option of getting a surprise box or to swap it for a prive box where all the products are from one brand and you know what they are. This month I opted for a prive box. It’s not from one brand, but the items are ones I know I will use.

Prices are in Canadian Dollars

Vichy Laboratories Purete Thermale 3 in 1
Full Size Price: $19.95 (200 mL)
Unboxing Topbox Oct 2017_LBL (2)

I love Vichy items. I’ve actually been using this line for about 3 years and I love it. This is 1. Cleansing Milk, 2. Toner, 3. Eye Makeup remover. With this formula you can apply with a cotton pad and don’t have to rinse, I really love that for those nights I just feel a little lazy and want to watch TV and wash my face at the same time. haha! This is also great for sensitive skin.

Nature by Canus Shea Butter Soap
Full Size Price: $3.99 (141g)
Unboxing Topbox Oct 2017_LBL (3)

This is another brand that I really love. I included the bubble bath in my empties in March that added some extra moisturizer. The smell of shea butter is so invigorating plus it has vitamins A and E and rich in essential fatty acids to tone and rejuvenate the skin. I use bar soaps quite a bit so love having them around.

My Thoughts
I am happy with the items in this Prive box because I wanted something different compared to the usual sample size things that I get in this subscription. I know the total value of the box is quite low ($23.94) it’s still worth more than the cost of the subscription and I got items I wanted.

Did you get Topbox this month? What was in your box?

Unboxing Boxycharm, October 2017

Price: $21.00 USD (+$5.00 shipping to Canada)
Number of items: 4-5 full-size items
Boxycharm_Oct 2017_LBL1
Boxycharm is a monthly subscription box of full-size makeup, skincare and beauty tools. The theme for this month is “Spellbound”. It really made me start thinking about Halloween and candy corn!

All prices are in USD, converted to CAD at the end

Dr Brandt Poredermabrasion
Retail Price: $58.00 USD
Boxycharm_Oct 2017_LBL4
It is really exciting to receive another Dr Brandt item in my Boxycharm. Now I don’t have to worry about purchasing another one when it runs out. Like the one I received before, this has micro-crystal to deep clean and refines pores.

Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlight in Presecco Pop
Retail Price: $38.00 USD
Boxycharm_Oct 2017_LBL8

I love Becca highlighters! They are so shiny and creamy, a great formula in my opinion! I already own Champagne Pop and it is a stunning peach shade. Presecco Pop looks like it’ll be a beautiful gold shimmer.

Tarte Tarteist Quick Dry Matte Lip Paint in Homeslice
Retail Price: $20.00 USD
Boxycharm_Oct 2017_LBL7

Hurray for a Tarte product! You may not know but I really love this brand. I’ve tried their matte lip paint formula before and think it is a comfortable lip product to wear that dries really quickly after application. I just don’t think it’s very long wearing.

ncLA Nailed It Tool Kit
Retail Price: $18.00 USD
Boxycharm_Oct 2017_LBL5

This is a pretty interesting item to receive in a subscription box! It’s great to receive a manicure set that I’m sure I’d get a lot of use out of! I definitely prefer items like this over nail polish.

Jonteblu Lip Liner Pencil In Brown Sugar
Retail Price: $5.00 USD
Boxycharm_Oct 2017_LBL6
I don’t wear too many lip liners, but whenever I wear lipsticks I don’t find lining my lips does help. I just wish it came in the same colour as the Lip Paint from Tarte.

Swatches!

Boxycharm_Oct 2017_LBL9

My Thoughts
Boxycharm threw in a few exciting and surprising items this month and I’m totally feeling Fall vibes with them!  Total Value; $139.00 USD ($175.50 CAD).

Did you get Boxycharm this month? What was in your box? What do you think of the items I received?

Unboxing Topbox, September 2017

Topbox is a Canadian monthly beauty subscription service. Each month you have the option of getting a surprise box or to swap it for a prive box where all the products are from one brand and you know what they are. This month I opted for a surprise box!

I never had a post for August because my parcel got lost in the mail. Topbox did send me a refund for the month but I was bummed that I never received that box because I was supposed to get other items too. Oh well, it happens I guess.

Prices are in Canadian Dollars

IBY Highlighter in Bubbly
Mini size $6.28 (1.8g)
20170920_181547
I think this highlighter has an interesting amount of peach and I first thought it was a blush. I think my photo makes it look darker than it is in person but it doesn’t appear to be an overly sparkly highlight which I like. I have not swatched this yet but I’m really loving IBY Beauty for a complexion that I’m sure I’m going to enjoy this too.

Avry Beauty Chamomile Gloves
1 pair $1.38 (2 for $2.76)
20170920_181534
I’m pretty excited for this hand masks! As the weather turns colder I usually suffer from really dry skin so I’m excited to try these nourishing gloves to help! They are pre-filled with shea butter.

Glamglow Youthmud Tinglexfoliate treatment
Mini Size $24.00 (15 mL)
20170920_181557
I always enjoy receiving Glamglow samples in my boxes because it’s very expensive to purchase the full-size products in my opinion. This gently exfoliates the skin to leave it smoother, brighter and softer. I do like to exfoliate every few weeks to refresh my skin so I’m excited that I got this in my box.

Caudalie VINOPERFECT Radiance Serum Complexion Enhancing
Full Size $89.00 (30 mL), Sample Size $29.67 (10 mL)
20170920_181541
Another expensive product that I enjoy receiving my boxes! There are some products from Caudalie that I enjoy, and others that I really don’t think work for me. I hope this one works for me because I can benefit from a complexion corrector.

My Thoughts
I think my box is OK this month. Nothing is really super exciting to me but I do appreciate that I received some skin care and makeup that will be good for me. I’m intrigued with the mask gloves and looking forward to using the Glamglow mask. Total Value of my box; $62.73
20170920_181525
Did you receive Topbox for September? What did you get in your box?

Unboxing Boxycharm, September 2017

Let me start off by saying that September was a crazy month for me. If you follow me on Instagram you would have noticed that I posted a photo from my sister’s wedding. I was her Maid of Honour and the last few weeks leading up to her big day were very busy.  One thing I’ve learned is that wedding preparations are hard! That’s why my posts for my unboxing are late. Anyways on to the post!

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 “Boxy Baddie”.

All prices are in USD, converted to CAD at the end

Pur Soiree Diaries Eyeshadow Palette
Retail Price: $34.00 USD
20170920_181938

Boxycharm has just been sending out palettes month to month and they are all superb! I’m a palette lover so I get so much joy whenever I see one in the box. I love the warm-toned shadows in this palette.
20170920_181949Everything looks so be perfect for every day, with the ability to increase the drama when desired. I didn’t want to swatch this only because I have similar colours so I personally think this would make a great gift.

MAC Cosmetics Eyebrows (pencil) in spiked
Retail Price: $18.00 USD
20170920_182011

This is the very first time I’ve ever seen a MAC product in any of my subscription boxes. I guess MAC has to jump on the bandwagon of sending their items through these types of boxes to introduce themselves to new makeup lovers. I really love how thin this eyebrow pencil is, the issue is that the colour is too deep for my eyebrows. I did end up giving this to my sister since I think it’ll work better for her.

Colourpop Ultra Satin Lip
Retail Price: $6.00 USD
20170920_181840
I can’t write very much about this because I actually lost it somewhere! LOL! I know that I love this formula from colourpop because it’s glossy and very comfortable to wear.

Studio Makeup Loose Blush
Retail Price: $35.99 USD
20170920_181919

I’ve actually never tried loose blush before so this will be very interesting to test out. It’s supposed to give a vibrant pop of colour for a healthy glow. Looking at it now, I can imagine this tub lasting me quite a lot of time.

BareMinerals Face Perfecting Brush
Retail Price: $28.99 USD
20170920_182052

When I first saw this brush I thought it looked really familiar. I then looked into my collection of brushes that I never use and found the exact one there. I figured I’d give it a try because I was intrigued by the dip in the centre which allows you to deposit foundation right into the centre of the brush.
20170920_182327 I used the brush I had before and was really impressed by the how easily it blended out my makeup. I’ve saved this one in its packaging should I want to pass it along to a friend, but my initial thoughts on the brush is that it works really well on me.

Briogeo Don’t Despair Repair Deep Conditioning Mask
Retail Price: $20.00 USD
20170920_182027

Yes! A Briogeo item to test out! Many might know that my hair is very dry so I appreciate anything that will help keep it moisturized and healthy. After you shampoo, you apply the product onto the hair and leave it on for 5 – 10 minutes before rinsing it. Doing this weekly should restore hydration to the hair. I can’t wait to try it out!

My Thoughts
A few things in the box I have passed along to others which I’m ok with. Giving items to my sister I know she will use is pretty great. Then there are the superstars of this box in my opinion and they are the Pur eyeshadow palette and Briogeo deep conditioner. Total Value of my box $144.00 ($179.63).

Did you get Boxycharm? What did you think of the September box?

Dal

 

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
Boxycharm_Aug 2017_LBL7
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
Boxycharm_Aug 2017_LBL4
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.

Swatches
Boxycharm_Aug 2017_LBL5
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?

Unboxing Topbox, July 2017

Price: $12.00 CAD (plus tax, free shipping) 4 items.

Topbox is a Canadian monthly beauty subscription service. Each month you have the option of getting a surprise box or to swap it for a prive box where all the products are from one brand and you know what they are. This month I opted for a surprise box!

Prices are in Canadian Dollars

Essie Nail Lacquer in b’aha moment!
Full Size Price: $9.00 (13.5 mL)
Topbox July 2017_LBL (7)
Ah! This colour is so fun! It’s a nice raspberry that is perfect for summer. I have quite a few nail lacquers from Essie because I like the formula. It’s a bit thinner so you need about 3 coats to make it opaque but I like that it dries pretty quickly in between.

LARITZY Cosmetics Undressed Liquid Lip Stain in shade Pebble
Full Size Price: $21.00 (1oz)
Topbox July 2017_LBL (2)
I did a swatch of this on the back of my hand and I find this dries down to a pretty matte. I love the dark nude shade, it’s very pretty although I think I might save it to use in the fall. PLUS I have a few other lipsticks in this colour so I’m not rushing to use this just yet.

Benefit Cosmetics Boi-ing Airbrush Concealer
Full Size Price: $27.00 (5 g), Sample Price: $8.64 (1.6 g)
Topbox July 2017_LBL (5)
Ya! A new Benefit product! This is meant to be a soft-focus, lightweight concealer. To apply you pat and blend this under the eyes or around the face. I used this about a day or two ago and it reminds me of Becca’s Under Eye Brightening Corrector in consistency and it’s as lightweight as that formula but it’s a concealer. I like a little more coverage under my eyes but I do think that it’ll work fine if I’m wearing a full coverage foundation.

GLAMGLOW SUPERMUD® CLEARING TREATMENT
Full Size Price: $79.00 (50 g), Sample Price: $23.70 (15 g)
Topbox July 2017_LBL (3)
I love receiving Glamglow samples because the full size of any of their products is so very expensive in my opinion. For this treatment, you apply a thin layer over the skin and after 5-20 mins wash it off. I would probably use this as a spot treatment every week or so and I think this will last me quite a long time.

BONUS! Garnier Skinactive Moisture Bomb
Topbox July 2017_LBL (4)
I absolutely love this little moisturizer. Garnier surprised me lately with their products and I’ve been enjoying them ever since. If you’re curious of my thoughts on Garnier BB Creams or skincare products you can read them here. This sample reminds me of the Bliss drench n’ quench because it’s very light and creamy. It feels almost gel-like.

Swatches!
Topbox July 2017_LBL (6)

My Thoughts

Topbox did not disappoint this month! I received items that I’m very excited to try. I’m really curious about how I like the Benefit concealer as I try it with different foundations and how well it holds up in the heat. I’m also in love with the colour of my Essie polish and can’t wait to clear my skin with some Glamglow masking tonight! Total Value of my box; $62.34 (not including bonus item)

Did you get Topbox this month? Anything excite you from the box?

Boxycharm is a monthly subscription box of full-size makeup, skincare and beauty tools. This is hands-down my favourite box from Boxycharm yet! The theme for this month is CutiePie.

blinc Electric eyes palette
Retail Price: $45.00 USD
Unboxing Boxycharm July 2017 (2)I was really excited to see this palette in the box because I’ve seen some of their mascara’s at Sephora. When I opened it I was floored by the beautiful colours! They are jewel tone shades that are  highly pigmented and so creamy to the touch. I love the golds and bronzes and the pop of raspberry here.
Unboxing Boxycharm July 2017 (3)At first glance four of the five shades do look similar but when you actually put them on your eyes or Swatch them on the skin they are completely different. I’ve applied these both wet and dry and the pigmentation is very impressive. The only downside ts that they’re all shimmers so I would have to use it with another matte palette to make it work for the types of looks that I like to do.

Colour-pop matte lip in lock diary
Retail Price: $6.00 USD
Unboxing Boxycharm July 2017 (7)

I love the pigmentation of Colourpop glosses and I do think that for the price they are really great deal. I’m not in love with this particular colour because it is too bright for me personally. I plan on passes this along to someone else that I know will enjoy the colour. I have tried and hauled other items from colourpop that you can read here and here.

Bare Minerals Invisible light translucent powder Duo
Retail Price: $32.00 USD
Unboxing Boxycharm July 2017 (8)This is the one item that completely stole my heart when I open this box. It is a translucent powder that comes with both a matte and a glow side. The matte side will absorb oil and it’s a perfect setting makeup while the glow side adds luminosity and highlighting.
Unboxing Boxycharm July 2017 (9)I love that this Duo is together because I actually love to put highlighting type powders all over my face but also using translucent matte powders under my eye. I also love that they’re pressed powders and I can take them on the go.

Winky Lux unibrows Universal eyebrow pencil
Retail Price: $12.00 USD
Unboxing Boxycharm July 2017 (4)
This Universal shade almost feels a bit dark to be universal but I think it will work with my hair colour and I have thick brows. I use a little bit of pencil to fill in the gaps but I’m never really too concerned about matching my color exactly. I admire this packaging I love the gold hieroglyphics against the creamy white pencil. I love cute packaging! This will make it so easy to find in my makeup case.

Project Beauty spray. What. No. Makeup setting spray
Retail Price: $32.00 USD
Unboxing Boxycharm July 2017 (6)
I’m so happy that I received this in my box because if you saw my empties for June you would have noticed that I did finish up my sample size makeup setting spray from Urban Decay. The only downside with this guy is that the mister more like a jet stream so it’s not very easy to spray it all over my face. If I spray it far enough I might be able to still get away with it but I do like a fine mist so I might have to pour the product into a different spray bottle. I did spray some of this on my face just to see how it felt and it does feel very much like a Mac Fix Plus. I really like it!

My Thoughts
I am super happy with this box. I had planned on canceling my subscription after receiving this but I think I might just go for another 3 months because the items in this box were so good and I’m really looking forward to what they might have in store for the next few months. I wish I could pick out a few standout items but honestly they’re all stuff I am super excited to try except for maybe the colour-pop lippie which I’m completely fine with passing to someone else. Total value of my box: $127.00 USD or $160.00 CAD

Did you get Boxycharm this month? What item is a standout for you? What do you think of the items I got?

Lots of Love,
Dal
