Before I dive into today’s post, just wanted to explain that I had hoped to do this unboxing earlier in the month. But I visited my family back in Florida for the first half of the month, and with a mix up of addresses the box came here to my home in California.
All that to say, next month I should have my unboxing up earlier in the month. And then I would also like to come back with a review at the end of the month and show you a look where I use all the products. Would you like that?

What’s Inside of BoxyCharm’s September Box?
We can’t dive into a BozyCharm without first taking time to enjoy the cute packaging that it arrives in.
It’s sooooo cute!
And I had to snap a picture of the pretty “Fashion Week Fabulous” card that greets you when you first open the box. On the back of this card is where they give you additional information on the products you received, as well as the retail price of each item.
I was really excited to see that there was an eyeshadow palette from Coastal Scents in this month’s box — I love eyeshadows and haven’t had an opportunity to try any CS products.
All the products are so exciting this month! I seriously can’t wait to dive in and start trying these products out.
First up was a very pretty perfume. I had a slight problem with this product leaking, but since it was encased in bubble wrap it didn’t ruin anything. And there wasn’t that much leakage, thankfully. The scent is floral and sophisticated — definitely something I would wear. This full-size vial retails for $29.
For those who saw my August Unboxing post, you know that I received a lipstick from this brand and loved the luxurious feel of it. This mascara is no different — it feels so expensive just to hold it!
I’m really hoping that this gives me the lashes I like. 😀 This mascara retails for $19.
Next, the product that I was the most excited about — Costal Scents Go Palette in Cairo, which retails for $12.95
I can’t beleive it, but I totally forgot to take a picture of these colors swatched. If you would like to see that, leave a comment below and I can post it over on my Instagram account. I LOVE the coloring in this palette — definitely something I will use!
I love painting my nails, and BoxyCharm couldn’t have sent me a more fitting color — I love dark colors, especially those in the brown family. This is a beautiful chocolate brown that seems pretty opaque. Can’t wait to do my nails! This NCLA nail varnish retails for $16.
The last item in the box is Tarte Cosmetics’ LipSurgence…
…in exposed. 🙂 This full-size product retails for $19.
As you can see, it has a really unique applicator — one side of it is very flat. I assume this will make it easier to apply, but we shall see.
I was a bit disappointed in the swatch — it seemed more sheer and thin, and I was hoping it would be as creamy and rich as the bottle made it appear. But I’m not giving up on it yet — will put it to the test. 🙂
All in all, it was a great box for Fashion Week. Definitely filled with appropriate makeup. 🙂 As I’ve already mentioned many times, I am looking forward to trying all these products out and can’t wait for next month’s box. 🙂
Let’s do the Math!
Not too shabby — you pay $21 and get 5 full size products that value nearly at a hundred dollars!

Katherine Scheidhauer says
Very neat! I would like to see a review on the floral scent, the Coastal Scents eye shadows, and the mascara. Do you think the eye products will dry out your eyes or irritate them?
Elle Sees says
ooh you got some good stuff!!
Katherine – Thanks for letting me know what you are interested in. I'm looking forward to trying the mascara and shadow. The perfume is gorgeous! Will try to post reviews of those sometime soon. I haven't tried the eyeshadows out yet, so not sure about the drying aspect of it. Will let you know once I get a review written.
Elle Sees – Thanks, yeah, this was a really great box!
