Hi loves! Today’s post is all about my August 2016 Boxycharm. (Does anyone else do a KathleenLights voice and think “Boxysharm unboxing”? Because I always do!) The theme for this month’s box is Express Yourself, which just means I’ve had the song Express Yourself (by Madonna, but also performed on Glee) stuck in my head since I took the pictures for this!
If you don’t know, Boxycharm is a beauty subscription service that costs around $21 dollars a month and sends you five full-sized products a month. I’ve been subscribed to Boxycharm for around a year now and I actually really love it, which is why I canceled my ipsy and Birchbox subscriptions to only keep this around… Well, until I subscribed to Play! by Sephora.
The first item in our box this month is this ADORABLE Coastal Scents Blush and Bronzer Mini Palette, which comes with a tiny little blush brush. I love the packaging for this and the colors do look nice, but I have zero need for a blush and bronzer palette so I will be selling this (if you’re interested, hit me up!) so I can put that money toward credit card payments… or more makeup.
Next is the Aloepure Time Repair Serum. I think I’m too young to worry about using age defying products, but since it’s not a moisturizer, I figured I might just start using this in between cleansing and moisturizing and see how I like it. Plus it makes me feel really fancy and adult-like!
Next we have the Beauty for Real shadow stick in Ever Starstruck. Guys, it took me FOREVER to find the name for this. Seriously. It’s tiny and off to the side and I couldn’t find it, so I had to look it up online.
If you’ve been reading my unboxing posts for a while, you might know I absolutely despise getting mascaras. I feel like I’m always overflowing in mascaras and I usually just end up giving them to my sister since she hoards them. So you can imagine how I felt when I saw we had YET ANOTHER mascara in this month’s box (not to mention a brand we’ve already received mascara from before). This is the Doucce Cosmetics Maxlash Volumizer mascara, and the one we received from this brand before was the Punk Volumizer mascara. Okay…
Lastly, we received the Dirty Little Secret Velvet Matte Liquid Lipstick in the color Phantom. You guys probably know this is the product I was most excited for, since I love lipstick and can never have enough! The color is a beautiful orange red and so far, I really like it.
That’s all for today, but thank you for taking the time to read this! What do you think of this month’s Boxycharm?
