boxy charm july 2014

Boxycharm is another beauty subscription service I decided to try this past month. It is $21 a month, and I chose Boxycharm out of a long list of other beauty sub. services because I was able to look at boxes that had been released previously and liked the products they included.
The theme for July is “America the Beautiful” and I really like a few of the things I got.



Lauren B. Beauty Nail Couture (Full size .5 oz.) : The rich, brick red nail polish shade I got is called “Rodeo Drive”. This is the 2nd Lauren B. polish I have received through a beauty sub. service, and I still haven’t gotten around to using it. Formaldehyde-free formula is a plus. ($18.00)


Bellapierre Cosmetics Shimmer Powder (Full size .08 oz.) : “Twilight” looks like it’s going to be an absolutely perfect highlighter- especially for small areas, like above the upper lip and the corners of the eyes. The fine milled 100% mica goes on smoothly and has just the right amount of sparkle. ($14.99)


Purlisse Pur-protect Sunscreen SPF 30 (Full size 1.7 oz.) : I am pretty stoked about this sunscreen. It has great reviews and is formulated for normal-dry skin, which is great because I find most sunscreen to be too greasy. I currently use Aveeno Postively Radiant as my facial moisturizer with sunscreen under my makeup. This has a higher SPF and a better scent! ($55.00)


Appeal Cosmetics Lipstick (Full size .06 oz.) : This shockingly pink lipstick threw me off at first, but I gave it a try and I actually like how it looks. The formulation has a slight sheen to it, and the color is spot-on MAC Candy Yum Yum. The nice thing about it is that it’s surprisingly buildable- just a light swipe gave me a nice bright pink without being straight up neon. ($22.00)

lip pencil

Bellapierre Cosmetics Natural Lip Liner (Full size .6 oz.) : These lip liners are 100% all natural, made with minerals and botanical extracts. The color “cinnamon” is a darker brown- the shade on the box looked much closer to my nautral lip color. I don’t wear brown lipsticks so I don’t know about this one… ($18.00)

All full size products in here, with a grand total value of $127.99…not too shabby for a $21 box! I am so looking forward to my Boxycharm next month!
What box subscriptions do you have and how do you like them??
