As you may be able to guess, I canceled the Boxy Luxe for June. The value is definitely there, but I just do not need any more skincare right now. I have a set of sterlite drawers under the sink in my bathroom FULL of skincare that I haven’t even touched yet. Not to mention that 3 of the products in Luxe were also in the regular box.
The theme for the June 2019 Boxy Charm is ‘Getaway’, so products for a summer vacation. Products to take with you if you are heading off on a Summer Vacation. I received Version 3 in June.
I did receive a good mix of products that would be great to take along/get ready for a Vacation, especially the St Topaz Self Tan with mitt.
Tarte - Be You. Naturally. Eyeshadow Palette - Packed with 4 shimmer shades and 4 matte, your new tarte be you. naturally. palette is everything you need to create endless natural looks. From the frosty, cool pinks to the rich bronze and brown tones, this palette will flatter all skin tones while blending smoothly thanks to its Amazonian clay formula. Retail $36.00 USD.
I like Tarte shadows so in a way I was happy to get this, not going to lie though, I would have liked one of the face palettes! I am happy with a nice neutral palette and am looking forward to trying this one out.
The shades in the palette are-Sunbeam, Explore, Dusk , Earth, Tropical, Crystallized, Glacier, Daybreak. You get 4 mattes and 4 shimmer shades, so a perfect mix. I am not sure what order they are supposed to be, to me the shades don’t match the names if I go in order? Earth should be a matte to me, Crystallized would be a shimmer? Whatever the shade names are, the shades are nice and pigmented with only Glacier?(second last shade) feeling somewhat gritty when I swatched it.
Touch In Sol - No Poreblem Prime Essence - Let your makeup stay a while with your new Touch In Sol no Poreblem Prime Essence. Infused with Calendula Officials Flower Extract, this primer tightens up your pores keeping your skin silky smooth. Retail $23.00 USD.
I did receive another Touch In Sol primer a couple of months ago from Boxy Charm, but I do find that one to be a bit heavy for right now. This Prime Essence sounds intriguing though, and the texture is so thin! Looking forward to giving this one a try soon.
Dominque Cosmetics - Lemonade Lipgloss - Add hydrating shine and fulness to your lips with the lightweight, non-sticky balm like Lemonade Lip Gloss by Dominque Cosmetics. The sheer gloss is long lasting and flexible so you can wear it alone or layered over your favourite lipstick. Retail $17.00 USD.
The shade I received, Peach Tea, is the one I was hoping to get. The other shade, Strawberry Lemonade, seemed a bit brighter than I would see myself using. I am not normally a lipgloss wearer but I am looking forward to trying out this one.
St Topaz - Self Tan Classic Bronzing Mousse - For our most iconic, natural and healthy looking tan, the lightweight, classic mousse tailors to your individual skin tone, for our longest-lasting tan in one application. Retail $24.50 USD.
I have tried St Topaz before and have liked it, it gave me a nice even tan look without looking orange or streaky. I am glad that a mitt was including in the box, no one wants tanned hands! I will likely use this on my legs as they are always way paler than anywhere else on my body. The travel size will hopefully be enough for me to use it a few times if I only use it there.
Dirty Little Secret - Lip Liner - Smooth and creamy, this Dirty Little Secret Lip Liner is here to help you creat the perfect pout. Retail $15.00 USD.
The shade I received, Pale Pink, doeds’t really match the shade I got. To me this looks more of a peach shade! It seems a bit on the dry side when I was swatching it but I will still give it a shot, it looks like a good shade to wear with the lipgloss.
My June 2019 ‘Getaway’ Boxy Charm had a retail value of $115.50 USD, definitely worth the $21.00 USD plus $5.00 USD shipping to Canada (usually right around $35.00 CAD). I am excited to try 3 out of the 5 products, and willing to try the other 2. Better than the last couple of boxes were there was at least 1 product that I won’t use at all.
Do you get Boxy Charm? If so what was in your box that you are looking forward to trying out?
