June Boxycharm 2017

Downtown Charm

I got my box a bit late this month, so I wanted to get a post up pretty quickly. Here are some of my initial thoughts on this month’s products, let’s get started!

Realher Playbook Shadow Palette I Be Your Own Kind Of Beauty$28.00

“This palette has richly-pigmented hues and sexy combinations designed for all eye colors and skin tones. Delight in long-wearing, crease-resistant, fade-resistant, buildable colors in textures ranging from velvety smooth mattes to metallic sheens.”

I always love getting a full eyeshadow palette in my box, it really makes me feel like I’m getting more than my money’s worth! This isn’t the first Realher product we’ve gotten, and outside of Boxy Charm I never really hear about the brand. The color scheme of this palette is very neutral and wearable, perfect for beginners and the experienced alike. My swatches of the shades varied, some of the metallics were a bit lack luster, but the mattes really impressed me!

These three shades are all kind of subtle and not very pigmented, but they can be built up on the lid. They would be great as all over the lid shades for an easy eye look.

The shade Strong is my favorite by far, it is a really lovely neutral brown matte shade. The other two metallics in this row are much more impressive than the first row, and perfect for a day to day bronze smokey eye.

I love to shade Creative, it rounds the palette out with a more cool shade, perfect to contrast all of the warm shimmery shades. The black shadow is surprisingly pigmented, so you only need a tiny bit in the crease to darken things up.

Ofra Cosmetics Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick in Santa Ana $19.90

“OFRA Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick is a one-step full lip color that does not feather. This vibrant color 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 a lip liner, this liquid lipstick gives a beautiful edge to your lip look!”

I am a huge fan of the Ofra liquid lipsticks, so getting a new summer shade was so exciting! There were two different colors sent out, and I am happy I got this shade. It is a stunning berry red with a tiny hint of fuchsia/purple. It is red enough to wear on a night out, but pink and bright enough to wear with a casual sun dress. The formula is pigmented and not drying at all on my lips, and it lasts all day without crumbling or flaking off.

Artist Couture Diamond Glow Powder in Illuminati $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.”

I have always wanted to try one of these super popular loose highlights from Artist Couture, and now I finally get to! I got the shade Illuminati, a true champagne gold. This had a lot more glitter in it than I expected, which isn’t usually my style but on the skin it’s actually stunning. A little goes a very long way to I need an extremely light hand unless I want a gold stripe on my cheek. While I may not use this often on my cheeks, it’s perfect for mixing in with a moisturizer applied to the arms and shoulders for a lit from within glow.

Biobelle Sheet Masks $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.”

Sheet masks are so fun, perfect for the Sunday night pampering we all deserve. This three pack of different masks from Biobelle is exciting because I am always down to try a new face mask. I love keeping in the fridge so in the summer when I am feeling hot or sun burnt, I can throw one of these on and cool down.

Luxie Beauty 640 Tapered Face Brush $24.00

“Sweep the competition away with this tapered brush! Perfect for dusting away powders, or applying highlight, this brush screams versatility.”

I have been wanting a brush with this exact shape for a while now, they are perfect for subtle blushes and blown out highlighting. This brand has never let me down, the bristles are soft and deposit the perfect amount of product on the skin. This is also great for setting the forehead and under eye area.

Box Total: $113.86

All in all, this month’s box was a huge hit! I am looking forward to trying out each product, and I will post an update soon! Let me know what you got in your box this month and what your thoughts were.

Glowingly yours,

Jess
