Modern Merbabe: July 2016 Boxycharm

Hi guys and welcome to today’s episode of “Valentina’s super bad at being on top of her blog,” thanks for tuning in! In this week’s episode, we will talk about time management skills, procrastination and why I suck at all of the above.

In all seriousness, I’m actually really surprised at myself for having found the time to write this post (and two more after these). My sister and I just moved out of our apartment and into a new house with my parents (only like five minutes away from our apartment though) and if I hadn’t had a couple of posts pre-written and scheduled, nothing would have gone up last week as we were in the midst of moving!

Now that we’re officially out of the apartment and in the new house and my room is mostly set up, I have my vanity set up and could take pictures for my post! This post is being written and published live (well, ish) but the next two will be scheduled, as I leave for a two week trip to Chile on Friday!

Anyway, moving on.


Today’s post is all about this month’s Boxycharm box, the theme for which is Modern Merbabe. How cute is that? I love how cute and unique their themes are and I love how this one looks too!


This month’s Boxycharm technically only included four items, but considering the fact that they sent us a magnetic palette from OFRA with six of their shadows, I’m not complaining! I don’t know what the colors are but honestly, they all look really nice and I’ll definitely be trying these! I’m also really excited to have another magnetic palette, because my current one is tiny!


Then, we have the Mally Beauty Rounded Blender Brush, which is SO SUPER SOFT, a Noyah lip gloss in Malbec, and the PYT Hair Argan Oil Treatment. All in all, it’s not my favorite box, but I definitely feel like I got my money’s worth from these products and I can’t wait to see what will be in my next Boxycharm!

Cancelling my ipsy and Birchbox and keeping only this one was a great decision — except I did subscribe to Play! by Sephora and I finally received my first box (just now, actually!) and you can read all about it in next week’s post!

Let me know what you thought, how you feel about Boxycharm, beauty boxes, life in general, or anything at all! I’d love to chat and hear what you have to say!! Thanks for reading!

  1. I’m so tempted to subscribe to Boxycharm – it seems to be really consistently good! The z-palette and shadows is possibly one of the most amazing things I’ve ever seen included in a subscription box!


    • You definitely should! They consistently have amazing brands and all full-size products, which, considering the fact that it costs the same as two ipsy bags, is a pretty good deal. Let me know if you want a referral code. ;)

    • Exactly! That’s usually how I feel about Boxycharm honestly, like there are one or two great items and then the rest are good. I’ve gotten a few things I’ll honestly never use but for the most part I get decent, useful things and then AWESOME things.
