Boxycharm – May 2015

My first Boxycharm!!! “sqqueeeee”.

Boxycharm is a monthly sub for $21 a month. You’ll get 5-6 pieces of swag that can range from all your typical beauty categories (nails, hair, makeup, skincare, fragrance and what have you).

May 2015 – BoxyCharm

Initial impression: holy crap I LOVE that color nail polish (Lauren B Beauty). I kept creeping on Instagram,  checking the #boxycharm tag to see what everyone had gotten, and I kept seeing pinks and bright oranges. At first I was miserable, then I came to terms with myself (I can rock that, no big deal), but then I opened this up and it screamed my name! Then I remember reading another instagram user’s comment,  “hideous green color, trash, garbage, etc” and had to chuckle to myself as I immediately planned on covering my nails in the color the second I was done checking the #swag.

Next up Lip Bar Lipstick (I’m new at this and forgot to write down the color). I hadn’t heard of this company before, but I love that it came with it’s own velvety case and the packaging around the lipstick itself is killer! Too bad I don’t wear lipstick. It is going in the ever growing “gift” pile.

Then the bronzer (ModelCo Bronze Shimmer) – sweet! don’t have any of that in my arsenal at the moment and my vampire features could use a little color. This stuff is SUPER pigmented and should be used with caution! I walked around pretty orangey for the first few days, but I think I got this stuff down now though.  Maybe less “sun kissed” and more contoured now….

Last but not least, Bodyography Brow Trio with Brow Brush. The brow powder is very pigmented and I use it not only to bring my brows back (I tend to keep them short and sparse), but also to help build definition with my eyeshadow (crease/liner/you know). The brush isn’t bad, great for the brows, don’t use it for the sensitive skin around your eyes (it’s a bit scratchy) – unless you’re into that kind thing O.o

What colors did you get in your Boxycharm – love it or hate it?
