BoxyCharm sent me August’s box in the hopes that I would feature the contents in a blog post. I’m not paid to write this post and none of the links are affiliate — I just think this is a really awesome subscription box that you really get your money’s worth out of!
Stick around till the end of the post and I’ll break down how much this box is actually worth!
What’s Inside of BoxyCharm’s August Box?
Your products come in this cute box that has a printed ribbon and bow around it.
Each box that BoxyCharm sends out has a special theme to them. As you can see, August’s theme was all about the beach. 🙂 So it’s all about the bronzed and beautiful look. Let’s see if the product’s live up to this expectation!
And don’t forget to stop and appreciate the sweet message on their box 🙂
Packed with the product is this fun white and gold shredded paper. 🙂 As you can see, I received 5 FULL SIZE products in my box. They all were from brands I hadn’t heard of before, but looked like great quality.
The first thing I pulled out from the box was this makeup brush. It’s from Morphe Brushes and it’s they’re Powder Brush and it retails for $19.99. So, right there, this first product is almost the same price as the box itself (and we still have 4 products to go!)
The brush is very soft, though I’m not sure yet how it will work on applying bronzer…which is the next item in the box!
This product is called OFRA Cosmetics Americano Bronzer and is a pretty, powdery bronzed color.
(I apologize for this swatch not being so bright…I’ll work on it!) As you can see the bronzer appears to have just a little bit of shimmer/sparkle to it. I’m curious it see how this looks when I apply it on my skin. This bronzer retails for $35.
The third product I pulled out of the box was also from OFRA Cosmetics and it was their Eyeliner in Green Go.
This product retails for $13 and is a beautiful hunter green with shimmer.
This swatch was only once on my arm, and as you can see it looks really pretty. Not sure how I am going to use this eyeliner (I tend to just use black liners), but I look forward to trying!
Next up is the ModelCo‘s CHEEK + LIPS Cheek & Lip Tint in Rosy Red. I have never used a cheek stain before — I do use and love my cream blushes — but I am looking forward to trying this one out.
This product has really cute packaging — I love it! This full size product retails for $13.
So when you first squeeze it out, it looks like the picture above. Then…
As you blend it out, it has this jelly-ish texture and looks very bold and bright red. But…
Once you fully blend it out, it leaves your skin with this beautiful, natural summery blush. You only need the teeniest amount (I used too much in the swatches above), so this 0.04 oz tube will last you a very long time!
And the last product in the BoxyCharm’s August box was Tarina Tarantino’s Conditioning Lip Sheen!
This is one fancy lipstick, let me tell you! You wouldn’t believe how heavy-duty this tube feels when you hold it in your hand. It just feels high quality!
This full-size conditioning lip sheen retails for $22.
I love the feel of this lip sheen on my lips. It’s very velvety and smooth. And the color is perfect!
And that was all of the product’s in my August BoxyCharm box! 🙂 Did it hold up to it’s theme of Beach Babe? I think so! The bronzer, cheek tint, brush, and lip sheen are definitely perfect for the beach. The eyeliner doesn’t stand out to me as being ‘summery’, but it’s still pretty!
I love my BoxyCharm box and can’t wait to start using the products!
Let’s do the math!
Wow! So you’re paying $21 and you get 5 products that add up to over $100. That’s so impressive!
If you’ve never heard of BoxyCharm, I would encourage you to check them out! There are many subscription services out there, but I like that this one is at a reasonable monthly rate and gives you several products that are full size!
Question for My Readers: Do you want to see a makeup look where I use all of these products on my face?? Have you heard of BoxyCharm before today? Does it interest you?
received one or more of the products mentioned above from
BoxyCharm in the hopes that I would mention them on my blog. Regardless,
this does not guarantee a review or feature on my blog. I only share information that I think will be useful for my
readers and I only recommend
products I have personally used.

Elle Sees says

Elle – Yeah, the products were really good. I just used a few products yesterday and really like them. 🙂
Robin Wilson says
I haven't heard of this before but there are so many subscription boxes out there that's not surprising. What is surprising is the value! Whew! Awesome…I'll check them out!
Robin – I hear you! There are a lot out there. But, yeah, I love the value you get with this subscription. When I added it all up, I was shocked.
And the neat thing is that if you don't like a product, you could easily gift it to a friend. They're full size products from nice brands — definitely not cheaply in package or quality!
