July 2017 - Boxycharm Unboxing, Review, Swatches and Makeup Try-on!

Boxycharm is a beauty subscription box for $21.00 a month + $5.00 shipping to Canada (shipping is free to the U.S.) Boxycharm sends 4 to 5 full size and luxury size beauty items. 

This subscription focuses heavily on make-up items - so that is something to keep in mind! (I personally love all the makeup though and they have sent full size palettes in the past!) While it is a little pricier than the more inexpensive beauty boxes, the majority of the products are full size, with a deluxe sample every once in a while. 


Every subscriber generally receives the same products, but their is usually 1 or 2 items that have a few variations, so our boxes may not be identical! 

Here is a look at my July Boxycharm:

July 2017 - Boxycharm Unboxing, Review, Swatches and Makeup Try-on!

This month's theme is "Cutie Pie" and Boxycharm always includes a detailed product card explaining the items that were included in each month's subscription. 

Here is a look at the products I received:

BareMinerals 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 on even, long lasting, natural looking, luminous complexion. 

I love that this has two finishes - matte and glow! What a great idea! This would be great to travel with as you only need to bring one compact. The powders are super smooth and silky and I love the finish of both. These swatch a little white so you need a light touch when applying, but they applied well on my skin!

Blinc x Boxycharm Electric Eyes Palette ~ $45.00. This palette features a combination of 5 highly-pigmented, jewel tone eyeshadows. The shades beautifully pair together to give a gorgeous, golden eye look. This formula blends effortlessly, and is long-lasting. 

This palette is stunning! Like, stunning! The shadows are mainly neutral, with a pop of cranberry. These shadows are a creamy formula - they apply so bold! 

Here are the shadows swatched - swiped once in natural light:

Two of the shadows are quite similar, but one is more bronze and the other more gold. I love the shadows and see myself using these shadows a lot - this is my typical all over lid shades and finishes! 


July 2017 - Boxycharm Unboxing, Review, Swatches and Makeup Try-on!

ColourPop Ultra Satin Lip in "Lock Diary" ~ $6.00. High pigmentation and a satin-matte finish in liquid lipstick form to keep your lips soft and comfy all day long.

Lock Diary is actually a shade from the limited edition Hello Kitty line and is sold out now. This shade is described as a deep fuchsia and it is a little similar to the shade I received last month. I do like this though and I like the Satin lips! 


July 2017 - Boxycharm Unboxing, Review, Swatches and Makeup Try-on!

WinkyLux - Uni-Brow Universal Eyebrow Pencil ~ $12.00. One brow pencil to rule them all! Simplify your brow game with the 2-step pencil that works on 95% of brow shades. The firm texture gives maximum control so anyone can be a brow boss.

So swatching this I thought it was a little hard; however, when using it on my brows I thought it applied really smoothly! It is actually a little darker that I was expecting since it is supposed to be a universal shade. I won't complain though as it works for me! 


July 2017 - Boxycharm Unboxing, Review, Swatches and Makeup Try-on!

Project Beauty Spray.Set.GO. Makeup Setting Spray ~ $32.00. Keep your makeup fresh all day long. Just Spray, Set & Go! Makeup Setting Spray with Wild Chamomile, Rosehip and Green Tea Extracts locks your makeup in place while keeping skin soft and moisturized. You've got this gorgeous!

I use setting spray all the time so I am happy to see this! Project Beauty has been included in Boxycharm a bit and it looks like they mainly do hair products, but I will test this out. The spray is decent and seems to work well! 

Now, I loved this month's products so much and I thought they worked together really well together so I created a full face makeup look with all the goodies!

I used the Blinc x Boxycharm Electric eyes palette - rose gold shadow all over the lid and the cranberry on the lower lash line. The WinkyLux Unibrow product is all over my brows and the ColourPop Lock Diary is on the lips! I have used the Bareminerals matte powder on my t-zone and the glow powder under the eyes and rest of the face. Then I set it all with the Project Beauty setting spray! 

Boxycharm came with 5 full sized items and a value of $127.00. This subscription came with a great variety of makeup - powder, lipstick, eyeshadow, brows and a setting spray! I am really happy with all of the products in this month's box! Boxycharm always has a huge value and is well worth the subscription price to me!
