June Boxycharm Unboxing | 2018

June Boxycharm Unboxing + Review _ 2018I can’t even tell you how excited I am for my June BoxyCharm Unboxing. The last few months I haven’t been completely thrilled with the box, but the spoilers this month really caught my eye! I switched to a Monthly subscription instead of a three month, which technically costs me more money in the long run but I didn’t want to pay over $100CAD right after getting back from my trip. Besides, my makeup collection is becoming overrun with full sized Boxycharm products so I might need to take a break.

The June Boxycharm

The June Boxycharm theme is Caribbean Queen. They did such a good job choosing products that fit the theme, sometimes I’m very confused as to why subscriptions have themes at all when the products never seem to fit. This month we got SIX products, counting the makeup brush trio as one product! This is why I switched to Boxycharm over my other subscriptions.

Alamar Cosmetics Reina Del Caribe Eyeshadow Palette

Alamar Cosmetics Reina Del Caribe Eyeshadow Palette $28USD

This makeup brand was created by Gabriela Trujillo. I’ve seen her quite a bit on Kathleen Lights’ channel, she’s a professional MUA who does the makeup for all of Kathleen’s KL Polish photoshoots. I love watching their videos together, she’s so talented!

This palette is so beautiful, I am stoked to try out the shades Coco Taxi, La Costa and Celia on my eyes! I love the overall look of the palette and that Gabby has placed little suns or water droplets to indicate if a shade performs best wet or dry.

June Boxycharm | Sol De Janeiro & Battington Lashes

Battington Monroe Lashes | June Boxycharm

Battington Monroe Silk Lashes $28USD

Hmmm… I have never worn falsies in my life, so I don’t actually have lash glue readily on hand. I will have to pick some up, do you guys have any recommendation on which type/brand to buy? These lashes look really luxe and pretty, I love the little case they come in!

Sol De Janeiro Bum Bum Cream | June Boxycharm

Sol De Janeiro Bum Bum Cream Mini $10USD

EEEEEK. EEK. EEK. I can’t even tell you guys how long I have been wanting to try this body cream, I had no idea it would be in the June Boxycharm until a few days before it arrived when I was watching an unboxing and saw it. This cream is NOT cheap, which is why I have added and deleted it from my Sephora cart over and over again. I can’t wait to try this out!

Luxie Brush Trio | Boxycharm

Luxie Brush Trio | June Boxycharm

Luxie Brush Trio $42USD

I have one of the brushes in this trio already, the Luxie dreamcatcher 660 brush. The only difference is that it has a purple handle. I use it everyday for so many different things from foundation to primer to undereye setting powder to highlight… subscribers received a Rose Gold Precision Foundation Brush 660, a Rose Gold Tapered Highlighting Brush 522, and a Rose Gold Duo Fibre Powder Brush 516. I’m not sure how I feel about the duo fibre brush, I had a similar Luxie brush in the past and it shed like mad. This trio isn’t available for purchase on Luxie’s website but according to the Boxycharm pamphlet it’s worth about $42.

 

 

JontéBlu Eyeliner & Ofra Liquid Lipstick

JontéBlu Eyeliner Pencil $5USD

I have way too many eyeliners, if you read my Elle Canada Grand Prix Product Reveal I received five new eyeliners to test, and I still have three from last year plus a few from subscription boxes. Way too many! I appreciate that this pencil is brown, I don’t have any eyeliners that aren’t black. This pencil unfortunately performs poorly, which isn’t surprising to me give it’s price point. There was a lot of drag on my waterline and it barely showed up when I tried to tightline my upper lash line.

Ofra Liquid Lipstick in Verona $17USD

I feel like we always receive a similar shade of lipstick from Boxycharm. Or at least I always get sorted into the group receiving a nude pinky lipstick. Still, I am happy that I got an Ofra liquid lipstick because I have wanted to try them out for a long time. There’s a store in my city where I can buy Ofra but the lipsticks go for about $25CAD here which is way too much for me to spend on a lipstick that I may or may not like the formula. Now I can test it out first!

Alamar Cosmetics Reina Del Caribe Palette Swatches

Value & Overall Thoughts

The June Boxycharm totalled up to $130USD!! Even though I’m paying $12-15CAD more a month with Boxycharm than I was with Ipsy it is well worth it, I was lucky if my Ipsy subscription totalled up to $30USD. I am very happy with the box this month. The palette is so exciting for me, as is the Sol de Janeiro cream and the luxie brushes. I am looking forward to trying out the lashes when I pick up some lash glue! The JontéBlu pencil was a miss for me but it only accounted for $5 of the value so I’m not too upset. The Ofra lipstick is going to get a wear test from me for sure!

What did you think of the June Boxycharm?

Thank you so much for reading! Let me know what variation you got in your Boxycharm this month, and as always please like & subscribe to help support me! Stay tuned for a ColourPop Haul and a review of the new No Filter Foundation <3

    Girl this month was so good for BoxyCharm! I ALMOST signed up again just for this month. But I stopped myself because I was able to find that Alamar Cosmetics palette elsewhere, which was the main attractant for me!

      I saw that you were able to buy it off someone! The colours are so perfect for summer, I’m in love with that Celia shade! This month was really good, I have so much Boxycharm makeup now that I had to unsub for the time being lol

  2. June 20, 2018 / 10:31 pm

    I think this is my favorite box so far lol. I’m so happy with it too!!

  3. June 20, 2018 / 7:26 pm

    I just realized that I get the same lipstick/lipgloss shade every time too! 🤔
    I still haven’t picked up the lash glue you recommended. I wore falsies for my wedding and they were so beautiful! It’s a huge trend in Vegas to get lash extensions but they’re crazy expensive! I guess I should just learn how to apply the fake lashes!

      I know there was a red a month or two ago that some people got, I wonder why we keep getting the same shade almost! :S
      I haven’t either, I’ve had no time to run to the drugstore lol
      I think I know a few people who have got eyelash extensions here too, I think I’d be too nervous! I don’t even like going to the eye doctor lol

      • June 22, 2018 / 11:28 am

        Hmmm I don’t know why either! Maybe because we’re pale? Although pale women rock reds so I don’t know their reasoning.
        Eye stuff doesn’t bother me but I totally see where you’re coming from! I’ve always wanted the eyelash extensions because it eliminates the need for mascara. Plus you look amazing even without makeup. But it’s just so expensive! And you have to get them filled in like every three weeks. I don’t get my hair cut once a month because I can’t afford it much less get my eyelashes done! 🤣

          Hmm I don’t know. I love a good red lipstick, I’d love to see one in the future!
          Every three weeks!? You can’t just get them and leave them? That sounds like way too much maintenance to me, I’ll stick with mascara lol. I have considered getting my brows microbladed though, It would be so nice to not fuss with my eyebrows every morning haha
          I think I get my hair cut every five months or so… I procrastinate it’s so much money

          • June 24, 2018 / 9:06 pm

            I know it’s crazy! I was seriously considering it but then a friend told me she goes to get her lashes filled in every two or three weeks and I was like heeeeell no! I’m way too frugal to spend $80 a month on my eyelashes!
            I love red lipstick too! 😻 It’s so classic! Old Hollywood glamour!

            Me too, and who has time for that every three weeks!? Lol
            Yes definitely!

    What a great value on this box! That palette is absolutely perfect for summer.

    It’s awesome that they included the Bum Bum cream in the box – that stuff is so pricey!

    I’m not a massive false lash user (only for special events), so my recommendation probably isn’t the best out there, but I just use the Duo lash glue that you can get at drugstores. It gets the job done. Have fun trying those falsies!

      Seriously, I don’t know how they do it with the insane values!
      Even if the Bum Bum cream is only a mini I’m still so impressed that it was in the box. It’s a pretty generous sample size!

      Nova also recommended Duo to me! I’m going to have to pick some up and try it out. Thanks!
