Beauty Subscription: Boxycharm June 2016

june boxycharm 2016 lvx ofra  farmacy
Now that I've tried Ipsy, I'm have started to become very interested in trying more makeup subscription boxes. Makeup subscription boxes help me save a little money while I get to experiment with makeup plus its something that I can look forward to getting every month. You definitely get a lot of bang for your buck.  

I signed up for Boxycharm in the middle of June and they sent me June's box soon after. Boxycharm boxes retail for $21 each month and you can get a discount if you prepay for 3-12 months. The thing that most appealed to me was that you get full size or luxury size items whereas Ipsy provides mostly deluxe sample sized products. Signing up for Boxycharm was fairly easy as I was not placed on a wait list like Ipsy. 

Without further ado, this is what I got in my June Boxycharm:

Ofra Oil Control Pressed Powder: I'm stoked to have received the full size of this as it retails for $39.95. It is meant to control oil and to prevent this powder from washing you out, make sure to sweep excess powder off your face with a brush. Not gonna lie, I'm wary of powders like these because I'm afraid they are going to give me a white cast in pictures. However, I'm going to take the plunge and try this.

LVX Nail Lacquer: I love blue nail polishes such as this one. I haven't tried this yet so stay tuned to my Insta! This does not contain 5 toxic chemicals that are most commonly found in nail polishes and is vegan friendly.
  Retail: $18.00

FARMACY Coconut Gel Mask Medley

FARMACY Coconut Gel Mask Medley: This contains 3 sheet masks. I'm obsessed with sheet masks, they are so easy to use and don't make a mess like regular masks do. For these reasons, they are super travel friendly. I've tried one and I like it so far. I find that it does brighten my skin a bit. It's kinda annoying to use because it has 2 protective masks you have to remove in order to use the actual mask so make sure to read the directions. 
Retail: $24.00

Girlactik Precise Eyeliner Marker

Girlactik Precise Eyeliner Marker: I've heard amazing things about this brand and I've been meaning to try their liquid lipsticks. I'm so happy to have received this because you can never have too many liners and I'm running out of my current liner.
  Retail: $20.00
Cougar Beauty Mineral Face & Body Shimmer
Left: Swatched                     Right: Blended out

Cougar Beauty Mineral Face & Body Shimmer: It's meant to work as a face and body highlighter. I'm not sure if I'll get any use out of this as this powder is super pale and I'm sure it will make me look ashy. This seems to be more geared towards those with fair skin. I might be able to use this on my collarbones and make sure to blend the powder very well. I don't think that this particular shade is suited for those who have darker skin tones. 
Retail: $16.00

I'm very pleased with my first Boxycharm box. The box's worth is well over $100 and I only paid $21 so that's a great deal. All of the products are interesting and I like almost all of them. I totally plan on getting next month's box.
