So yesterday I recieved my 2nd ever Boxycharm subscription box….and I really have to share it with everyone because this was pretty easily the best box I’ve ever gotten from ANY SUBSCRIPTION SERVICE, EVER. Way to go Boxycharm!!!
Onward, to the goodies:
Tarte Lipsurgence Lip Gloss in “Park Ave. Princess” (Full size!) : It is very, very cool to get a full size Tarte lip product in this box, PLUS a coupon good for 20% off at Tarte.com.
The shade is a cool toned, pale peach/nude combo with tiny gold and iridescent pearl flecks in it. The extra long sponge applicator tip is slanted on one side, which I’ve never seen before. I’m getting a little sick of the sugary, vanilla MAC smell of pretty much every single lip product on the market. This gloss looks lovely on though- a sheer, sparkly nude that seems to stick pretty well without the stickiness. ($19.00)
NCLA 5 Free Luxury Nail Lacquer in “Model Behavior” (Full size) : I am loving this shade!
It’s one of those really unique, in-betweeny shades- I pick up gray, brown and purple in this formula. The shade is tough, chic and kinda vamp all at the same time. I will definitely be wearing this over the next few months. ($16.00)
Harvey Prince Hello Fragrance- Eau de Toilette (purse spray) : I like this scent a lot but it smells just about identical to one I already own and love- Nicole by Nicole Ritchie. I would describe Hello as an amber musk scent mixed with some exotic floral notes, as well as hints of vanilla and citrus.
Definitely a complex scent and better for cooler temps. Unfortunately, my bottle was leaking like crazy! the base of the plastic spray cap had somehow cracked and luckily, it was in bubble wrap and didn’t contaminate my other surprises ($26.00)
Coastal Scents Go Palette in “Cairo” (full size) : A palette in a subscription box!! WOW! 12 pans too! This was very cool to receive.
I have never used Coastal Scents products and from my understanding they are fair quality and very inexpensive- comparable to some budget drug store lines like e.l.f or NYC. I was very impressed with the top 8 pans (excluding the first white one). They swatched well and ranged between a shimmer and a satin finish. The bottom 4, all matte shades, were of much poorer quality. They felt much drier and more crumbly than the others. This little thing will come in handy tossed into a travel makeup bag or gym bag. ($12.95)
Tarina Tarantino Fleur De Lash Mascara (Full size) : A full mascara also!
This is my first Tarina Tarantino product and I have yet to give a full report on how I feel about it. I can say, at this point, that I really like the luxe packaging- a long, full bushy applicator brush and heavy gunmental tube….very nice 🙂 ($19.00)
The value of this box was insane!! Anyone else get Boxycharm? What did you think of this month?
