BoxyCharm Box June 2019!

Purchased by me

BoxyCharm continues to be my favorite beauty sub box, I’m always happy with my box.  The June 2019 BoxyCharm does not disappoint! It costs $21/month but the value is much, much higher. You get 5-6 beauty items each month that include nail care, skin care, makeup, haircare, fragrance and more with at least 4 of those items being full-sized. Truth be told, I don’t think I have ever received a sample size. The box ships to the US and Canada. Each box has a theme with a card detailing the items inside. You can cancel at any time, but I doubt you’ll want to!

The theme for June is Getaway! I can’t say I feel the products really fit the theme but I like them anyway. Let’s take a look:

Tarteist Pro Glow Cheek Palette V3 $45. Subscribers receive this or a Tarte eyeshadow palette. When I first saw that I received another face palette I was disappointed. I got the Cover FX face palette and a blush palette last month so I don’t really need another one. However, after seeing that the eyeshadow palette was another boring neutral palette, I’m happy I got this instead and I find myself liking it quite a bit.

The palette has 6 shades in the amazing Amazonian Clay formula. This is Version 3, so there are two blushes: Premiere, a pretty matte medium warm pink and Dance Floor, a matte dusty pink. Two highlighters: Headliner, a warm champagne gold and A-Lister, a cool pearl. Two bronzers: Autograph, warm and Backstage, cooler.

The two blushes and two highlighters are very pretty and wearable. As far as the bronzers, I prefer Backstage as I find Autograph has too much of an orange undertone. Backstage also makes a really nice contour for me. After wearing Backstage as a bronzer and contour, I realized the bronzer I had been using was too light for me!

The packaging is a bit bulky, it has a mirror on each side and they meet in the middle with a magnetic close. That’s a nice feature but the palette itself is heavy and bulky and not really travel-worthy.

Touch In SOL No Poreblem Prime Essence $23. This primer is considered an ‘essence’ so it has a very thin watery texture. It absorbs immediately and has a tacky feeling which ‘grabs’ your foundation to help it last. It has a dropper-type tip so you won’t waste any product and due to the watery texture, a little goes a long way.

I received the regular (vs. essence) Touch in SOL No Poreblem Primer in my February box and I like it much better. I don’t think the essence lessened the appearance of my pores at all and the original is more hydrating. I’m not impressed with this one.

Dominque Cosmetics Lemonade Lipgloss in Peach Tea $17. I love a sheer gloss like this in the summertime. Peach Tea is a pretty barely there peach shade. You won’t get a lot of pigment which is perfect for no-makeup days. It smells like cake and has the tiniest bit of stickiness. To punch up the color, I like to wear it over the lip liner below. They look fabulous together!

Dirty Little Secret Lip Liner/Rosie Posie $15. This is a great rosy shade that will work wonderfully under a lot of different lipsticks. The rose color has a pale brown undertone that I normally don’t like, but this one works. I also like that the shade isn’t too obvious when the lipstick/gloss wears off. My only complaint is that it is somewhat dry.

Skin&Co Roma Truffle Therapy Whipped Cleansing Cream $25. Okay, my first thought when I saw a cleanser was “not another cleanser, I have a jillion” but I spoke too soon. I actually really like this. It’s very hydrating and super creamy. It doesn’t foam but also does not leave my skin feeling dry or tight. I haven’t used it to take off makeup, just as a double cleanse after makeup removal. This will definitely have a place in my skincare routine.

June 2019 BoxyCharm

Overall the June BoxyCharm is not my favorite but I do like 4 out of the 5 items and I call that a win! The Tarte palette alone is more than the $21 I paid for the entire box! The box has a total value of $125 and had some very nice things and a few welcome surprises! The waitlist has been lifted so if you decide to join BoxyCharm, please use my referral link.
