Yesterday I received my July BoxyCharm box and I thought that today would be the perfect day to go through it. We’re in the middle of summer, so the theme for this month is Out Of Office, which makes sense for a lot of people. It is vacation season.
The first item we have is the The Beauty Crop Liquid Eyeshadow Duo in Ginger and Prosecco. This is a double ended, long wearing liquid eyeshadow. One side, Ginger in this case, is a creamy velvet pigmented matte shadow and the other side, Prosecco, is what they call a dazzling liquid glitter. They say these are easy to blend, and they can be layered, mixed or matched. They have 6 of these double ended shadows in total, in a range of fun colors, which I appreciate. While I do like these colors, I don’t really wear liquid eyeshadow a lot and I didn’t swatch these because I’m going to give this to a friend who loves liquid shadows. I did get a code from The Beauty Crop and if you use BFA25 at checkout, you receive 25% off orders over $30 on their website and this is valid until the end of July.
Next we have the Beauty For Certain Whole Lotta Mascara. This is a volume boosting, lash doubling, insta enhancing mascara. This is a brand that’s new to BoxyCharm and looks to be newer in general as they don’t have that many products on their website, but what they do have is looks like it might be good. I like the general shape of this brush and if I like this mascara, I’ll try more from their website and let you know what I think.
Moving on, we have the Byroe Fig Renewal Oil. This is a nourishing dry oil that offers complete skin renewal that results in silky soft and effortlessly ageless skin. This has fresh fig, jojoba oil, pro floral concentrate and omega rich superfoods to revitalize and nourish. It’s lightweight and absorbs quickly into skin. So here’s my thing with this, it looks and sounds really nice, but I’m really thrown off by the fact that it says ‘Salad Infused Beauty’ on top of the box, that doesn’t sound very nice. Although, when you smell it, instead of it smelling like fig or something light and floral like you would think, it smell has that ‘lettuce with dirt on it’ smell, which might be where the whole salad thing comes in, but it’s weird to me. You also get 0.67 FL OZ/20 ML for $72, which is just outrageous to me. But I’ll use it a couple times and see what I think. I hope for all this, it’s incredible. The bottle is gorgeous though, so it has that going for it.
The second to last item we have is the Alleyoop Stack The Odds in Sassy Pants. This was my Choice item for the month. This is a 3 in 1 stackable compact with a cream blush, bronzer and highlighter. This has jojoba and sunflower seed oil for a natural glow and when I swatched them they were smooth, creamy and seemed to be very pigmented. On the inside of the box it says ‘$10 on us, meetalleyoop.com/gift’ and if you go to the website, you put in your email and you get a $10 credit.
I think the idea of a stackable compact is super cute and perfect for traveling/throwing in your purse on the daily and this one does have a little mirror.
And the last item we have is the Eloise Beauty Prism Luxury Eye Shadow Brush Set. This set has four brushes made with synthetic fibers that seem very soft to me and a holographic prism handle. There’s no actual description of the brushes you get, but it looks like an angled eyeshadow brush, two flat eyeshadow brushes, and a really small eyeshadow brush, the type I like to use for putting shadow under my eyes.
That about wraps it up for this post, if you got any of the same items in your July BoxyCharm box let me know and if not, I’d love to know what you did get.
Until next time, enjoy your items and I can’t wait to see what I get next month :).
