Hi there, my darlings! So, as you all know, I was gone for all of July and August--I spent my entire summer basking in the warmth of home and family! But, just as I was getting ready to leave, I saw a spoiler or two for some fabulous products in the next month's Boxycharm...and I was totally bummed I was going to miss sharing them with you all. But, as luck would have it, when I returned at the end of August, both July AND August's Boxycharm boxes were waiting for me! Yay! Now, these were such amazing boxes I knew I HAD to share, late or not! So, today on the blog--it's all about Boxycharms! Bright and early this morning, let's recap July 2015's Boxycharm! For those of you who haven't heard of Boxycharm, it's a US-based monthly subscription service, where you receive 5-6 full-sized beauty products for $21!

July 2015's box has 5 full-size items and the theme was "Summertime Radness". There's a couple of products I was REALLY excited about in here so take a peek at what I received :

gorge I'll Make You Look Amazing Daily Spray (priced at $29.95) : This is a great product for a summer-themed box because I don't know about you but I struggle with frizz on a daily basis during the hotter months. This particularly spray is lightweight, lightly scented and makes my hair feel amazing! I sure could have used this baby while I was struggling to tame the frizz in the humid Indian summer!

yourMinerals Tranparent Veil Setting Powder (priced at $21.00) : This is a new brand to me and I was pretty impressed with the formula of this setting powder--it's super light and not crazy chalky. I'm not sure if I could make it work for my tan complexion but if you lighter-skinned, this veil is definitely worth a try!

Vasanti Professional Blush Brush (priced at $29.00) : Oh Vasanti! I'm always excited when I receive anything from Vasanti! First of all, the name is inspired by a Sanskrit word meaning "of spring" so the name immediately has an Indian/East Asian vibe to it. Don't knock it, but the name itself makes me want to try their stuff. As for the brush itself, it's pretty great--the bristles feels incredibly soft on the skin.

OFRA Cosmetics Universal Eyebrow Eyeliner (priced at $18) : When I first opened my box and found this eyebrow pencil in it, I have to admit I was pretty skeptical. I mean, Universal? As a woman of color, I can tell you there's no such thing. Besides, I was worried that this pencil, which you do need to sharpen, would have a irritating tip--I have sensitive skin and really don't need to aggravate it. But I was pleasantly surprised on both counts. Although by no means an exact match and I still can't vouch for how universal it is, the shade is by no means garish on my skin and I do believe it will blend quite nicely! As for tip, it's really soft and smooth, without being too mushy and prone to breaking off mid-swipe. All in all, I'm impressed!

MDMFlow Greater Than- Mascara (priced at approximately $32) : Now, this. This is what I was the most excited for! I love a great mascara and the opportunity to try one from across the pond was very appealing. Did it live up to my expectations? It sure did! Packaged in beautiful gold, this mascara performs! It gives great volume and lift and you can layer it on for extra oomph. Total win!
