It’s been a while since I gave you a peek at what came in my Boxycharm, so I thought I’d post a quick update about May’s box. The May 2015 Boxycharm was particularly exciting for me because it contained 100% color cosmetics for stand out summer looks.
1. ModelCo Bronze Shimmer ($22)
I’m already a big fan of ModelCo’s face makeup. Their Cheek + Lip Tint is one of my fave multi-purpose products. This bronzer is a neutral medium brown that’s packed with golden shimmer… well, sparkles. While I don’t rock shimmer regularly, this will be perfect to add that extra va-va-voom during summer nights out. I’d apply it to my cheekbones and my décolletage for that extra glam.
2. The Lip Bar Lipstick ($20)
Yaaaaaas. I was stoked when I got my very first lipstick from The Lip Bar in last year’s holiday Glossybox, and I’m even more excited about this one! I’ve mentioned that I’m trying to be more daring with color, so this shade is perfect for bringing the drama. Purple Rain is a lilac purple that can be dabbed on for a sheer, more wearable application, or built up for extra intensity. It’s glossy and moisturizing, infused with Vitamin E, shea butter, and avocado oil, which makes it even more of a pleasure to wear.
3 & 4. Bodyography Essential Brow Trio ($19) and Brow Brush ($19)
Can you say double score?! I’ve been super proud of my improving brow game lately (if you follow me on Snapchat, this is no secret!) so I’m more than happy to introduce these products into my collection. The brow trio comes with a light beige, a warmer medium brown, and a deep cool brown with a grey undertone— ideal for shading in brows and imitating shadow. The corresponding brush they included is the type with a spoolie on one end and a slanted brush on the other, which is my favorite brow tool for precise application and the type that I use every day.
5. Lauren B. Beauty Nail Polish ($18)
Color me obsessed with the shade, Sunset Blvd, that they packed for me in my box! It’s a neon coral that is basically the epitome of summer. These polishes are 5 free and vegan, which can be hard to find! It has a crelly consistency and I can’t wait to rock this color on the real Sunset Blvd this summer.
Super home run for Boxycharm this month, for sure. All full sizes, about five times the value of what the box costs, and all makeup! [Insert slow clap here]
