I know, I know this is going up super late but my box sat on my porch while I was in Europe! Anyway, Let’s get into some quick initial thoughts about these products.

Blinc Electric Eyes Palette $45.00

“This palette features a combination of 5 highly-pigmented, jewel tone eyeshadows. The shades beautifully pair together to give you a gorgeous, golden eye look. This formula blends effortlessly, and is long-lasting.”

I was so excited to get this palette in the box, especially after seeing Kathleen Light’s review of it. I love pressed pigments, the texture is like molten metal and they last forever on my eyes. The color scheme of this palette is very wearable, especially for the upcoming fall months. Here are some swatches of each shade.

Orpime

 

This warm bronze is probably my favorite color in the palette. It can be worn alone or blended in with any of the other shades for the perfect smokey brown eye.

Rhodoni

 

This shade reminds me a lot of MAC’s Cranberry shadow, but much more metallic.

Vanadini

 

This is a lovely, wearable rose gold color. This is perfect paired with big fluffy lashes and lots of bronzer!

Autuni

 

A yellow toned gold like this goes beautifully with some black dusted in the outer corner of the eye and black winged liner.

Sphene

 

This color is much less metallic than the rest, but it gives a lovely subtle shimmer to the lid.

Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip in Beeper $6.00

“greige rose”

“This thin, lightweight formula smoothly glides on the lips leaving SUPER intense pigment with a bold, ultra-matte look. It is very long lasting and 100% kiss proof AKA no transferring!”

I actually already have this lip color, so I handed this over to my sister. The formula of these Ultra Mattes is very drying on my lips, so I am actually not the biggest fan. I much prefer the Ultra Satin Lip formula.

Bare Minerals Invisible Light Translucent Powder Duo $32.00

 

“This silky and ultra-fine combination of setting powder and finishing powder instantly vanishes on all skin tones. Enjoy an even, long lasting, natural looking, luminous complexion.”

I was so surprised to learn we were getting a full size Bare Minerals product in this months box. While Boxy Charm always has great products, they rarely have big name brands like this in the box. These powders remind me a lot of the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powders, except less subtle. I have yet to try these on my face, but swatched they feel very finely milled and blendable.

WinkyLux Uni-Brow Universal Eyebrow Pencil $12.00

“One brow pencil to rule them all! Simplify your brow game with this 2-step pencil. It’s firm texture gives maximum control so anyone can be a brow boss.”

The packaging alone has me falling in love with this little brow pencil! The angular edge of the pencil and dry formula make this perfect for sketching out the tail end of my brows.

Project Beauty Spray. Set. Go. Make Up Setting Spray $32.00

“Keep your make up fresh all day long. Just spray, set & go! You’ve got this, gorgeous!”

I love setting sprays, so getting one in the box was so exciting! I haven’t tested this out yet to see how long lasting it is, but the initial spray felt nice on my face, not tightening or overly splotchy.

Total worth of this month’s box: $127.00

All in all, I totally loved this month’s box! Every product, save the Colourpop lip, is exciting and beautiful. Let me know how you liked the products in your box this month!

Glowingly yours,

Jess
