Hi there, my darlings! If you love subscription boxes, you probably know that most of the time, they can be hit or miss. Sometimes, you get a meh box...while other times, you're completely blown away. I've recently started featuring BoxyCharm and if these first two boxes are anything to go by, their hits far outweigh the misses! Take June's box--for me personally, I'm totally in LOVE with this month's box! Perfect for Summer, perfect because I found just about all the products to be just fabulous! Take a look!

SOL DE JANEIRO Brazilian Bum Bum Cream ($10.00 USD)

Our award-winning, cult favorite Brazilian Bum Bum Cream is a luxurious all-over body cream that absorbs quickly to help visibly tighten the appearance of skin. Infused with all-powerful caffeine-rich Guaraná extract and a cocktail of Cupuaçu Butter, Açaí Oil, and Coconut Oil, this fast-absorbing cream with our addictive Pistachio and Salted Caramel fragrance will bring out your most radiant skin ever. Try it and see what the “Bum Bum” effect is all about.

I've seen rave reviews of this cream all over social media so naturally, I've been dying to try it myself...and I was not disappointed! This fast-absorbing cream is at once super hydrating while remaining light and non-greasy. And the scent! I really didn't think I would love it as much as I do! It's described as a gourmand scent, which I often don't care for, but to me, this smells like the best kind of perfume--lush and heady! A total win!

LUXIE BEAUTY Face Brushes ($23.92-$31.89 USD)

Luxie Beauty’s signature Rose Gold brush line features premium soft, synthetic bristles encased in a rose gold ferrule atop a chic pink handle. Our brushes are handcrafted to perfection using hypoallergenic, high-quality, vegan and cruelty-free materials.

When it comes to your beauty, take the wheel. Luxie believes in more than just the superficial, we believe in Driving Beauty, both inside and out.

A trio of face brushes was included this month:

My brush collection has exponentially expanded, thanks to Boxycharm. I love how fluffy and soft these face brushes are! Plus, the rose gold and pink handles are so pretty!

BATTINGTON LASHES in Monroe ($28.00 USD)

This 3D lash provides moderate length and dramatic volume. These are our best-selling hybrid lash, giving your eyes the best of both worlds!

*Our 3D effect lashes mimic the growth structure of your lashes for the ultimate in natural glamour.

Personally, I prefer thicker, full volume lashes because let's be real, if I'm gonna take the time to apply falsies, I want them to be va-va-voom. That being said, this is a nice pair to have on hand for the hotter months when everything feels too heavy on your face!

OFRA COSMETICS Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick in Verona ($20.00 USD)

OFRA Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick is a one-step full lip color that does not feather. These vibrant colors will give you a vivacious new look. They are creamy and soft in texture, moisturizing the lips and creating a long-lasting lipstick effect. No need to use lipliner, this liquid lipstick gives a beautiful edge to your lip look!

Our formula is a matte color formula but if you want to add some shine to your liquid lipstick try our revolutionary Lipgloss Stick. All shades contain antioxidants and Vitamin E while the formula provides a lightweight layer of lasting color to make you look stunning all day. Color will last in a perfect condition for up to five hours without eating or drinking. For best results do not eat or drink for 15 minutes after applying.

Verona is described as: A mocha nude brown with a hydrating matte finish.

JONTEBLUE Eyeliner in Charcoal ($5.00 USD)

Line your eyes with the rich intensity of Jontéblu Eyeliner Pencil. The creamy long-wearing formula glides on smooth and adds drama to any desired look.

Honestly, I had high hopes for Verona, based off my own hand swatch. But, hands and lips are very different playing fields and unfortunately, on the lips, this shade doesn't look that great on me. I do, however, love the formula of Ofra's liquid lippies and fully intend to add more to my burgeoning collection.

When it comes to the eyeliner, I like the shade a lot. The pencil that needs to be sharpened? Not so much. The liner is pretty easy to apply but just a little too firm for my sensitive waterline so I would use this one to line my upper lashline.

ALAMAR COSMETICS Reine Del Caribe Vol. I Palette ($10.00 USD)

This palette features 8 highly opaque shades, reminiscent of the beauty and culture of Cuba. Dive into the pigments and pearls found in the intense metallics, or ground your look with the warm richness of the creamy mattes. For a more intense application, refer to the shade names that feature a water droplet, these shades can be used with a wet brush—the sun symbol represents the shades that should be used with a dry brush.

Shade Descriptions:

  • La Costa- (High shine shimmer) Pearly champagne with pink highlights
  • El Malecon- (Extreme high shine metallic) True gold with rich olive undertones. 
  • Varadero- (Extreme high shine metallic) Stunning deep royal blue/teal. 
  • Celia- (High shine shimmer) Vivid turquoise with gold reflects 
  • Coco-taxi- (Velvet matte) Yellow toned bright orange. 
  • Tropico- (Velvet Matte) Intense burnt orange.
  • Guantanamera- (Velvet Matte) Deep raspberry/burgundy 
  • Cafecito- (Velvet Matte) Deep Coffee

I love that Boxycharm includes full-size palettes month after month and I adore this one in particular! With its mix of mattes in warm, rich shades and shimmery, bold metallics, this palette is THE perfect summer palette, especially if you favor bolder shades like yours truly!

I'm particularly impressed with the formula of the metallics--one swipe and the pigmentation was unbelievable! The mattes did have a little fallout but nothing to get upset over. Again, pigmentation was quite impressive. I'll be using this palette A LOT this summer!

So there you have it, my darlings! You can sign up for your very own Boxycharm subscription on their site HERE--it's just $21 a month! Shipping is free within the US and an additional $5 throughout Canada! YAY!

  1. That looks like a good box! Your swatches of the palette are divine!

  2. I'm glad to see your swatches since I wasn't sure if I should use this palette. I don't normally wear such bright shades but your swatches make it look so attractive.

  3. I’ve been considering subscribing to Boxycharm for quite a while now. I canceled my subscription to Sephora Play last month. I had been thinking about canceling ipsy even though I still like it to try Boxycharm for a while. I wish I had gotten this months box because it has so many products I would love!

  4. What a fantastic box! I am very impressed they included a Sol de Janeiro product - it's a hot brand at Sephora right now.

  5. Now that's a subscription box worth paying for! I cringe thinking of what I'm going to get in my Sephora Play box this month in comparison...
