My WordPress app is having major issues-I tried posting yesterday but no dice. Sorry, guys.
Boxycharm finally arrived today after 2 weeks, it was shipped on August 8, and the fedex/smartpost thing is really annoying. But at least she got here. Without further delay, here we go!
The theme this month is “Beach, Please”.
And this box was worth the wait. The best is first-y’all know the tarte Rainforest of the Sea palette was coming because I didn’t shut up about it-
It’s a nice, heavy palette, doesn’t feel cheap. I mean, tarte is a high end brand, so you’d expect that. The shadows are soft, creamy, and really blendable-
There are 8 shades, I’m going to say 3 mattes and 5 shimmers. Retails for 36$.
Next, Royal & Langnickel has a line called Moda, or Moda Pro-either way. There are 3 brushes in the set, a crease brush, pointed blush, and chisel blender.
These are NICE. The handles are rubberized for good grip and the bristles are super soft. Retail price is 26$.
Up next, PÜR Cosmetics Pro Lashes. They’re made from silk so very similar to mink lashes without the mink, and it says they’re good for 30 wears.
Cruelty free and vegan as well. I got the lashes in “Bombshell” and am looking forward to using them. These retail for 14$ which is mid-price for lashes, I’d say.
Aloette Face Paint-a cheek and lip tint in Blooming Berry. I’m not usually a fan of lip/cheek combos but I’ll give it a try.
It’s actually thicker than I expected and a little goes a long way. I think even the amount I swatched might be too much. It’s enriched with Jojoba esthers, Vitamin E, and other essential oils, and is apparently buildable. This retails for 35$.
Last but not least, a Waterproof Gel Eyeliner by Bellapierre in black.
In swatching it almost feels a little waxy and not as pigmented as I’d hoped, but it doesn’t budge. I have the same black line on my hand after doing dishes and showering, so I’ll give it staying power for sure. I’ll have to try it in my eyes to know for sure. This retails for 15$.
I also received a coupon for 10$ off a purchase of 60$ on tarte.com, which isn’t bad either!
So there you have it-the much anticipated and hyped August Boxycharm. It did not disappoint either! The total value of this box comes to 126$ which for 21$, never ceases to blow my mind, y’all.
Talk soon, Lovelies
