Hey Guys,
Today I'm going to share my thoughts on my BoxyCharm for June. For those of you unfamiliar with BoxyCharm, it is a monthly beauty subscription box. You receive 4-5 FULL SIZED products each month. The subscription is $21.00 a month and usually has a theme.  The theme for June was "Caribbean Queen".  I was super excited about the sneak peaks when I saw them. Keep reading to see what I got and to hear my thoughts. Also, make sure to check out the discount codes for June!

Alamar Reina Del Caribe Palette $28.00
Review: BoxyCharm June 2018
 I was so excited when I learned that Gabby (one of BoxyCharm's social media managers and MUA) came out with her own cosmetics line. I was really happy for her. I was pumped when I found out we were getting her brand new palette in our box. Some of these colors are a bit too colorful for me but I may use them on my lower lashes. These shadows scream summer. They are EXTREMELY pigmented and blend like a dream. I have created some really pretty looks with this palette. My favorite shadows are La Costa, Coco-Taxi, Tropico, and Cafecito. The shimmers can be worn both wet or dry. I get the best pigmentation using my fingers. I am really loving this palette so far!

Luxie Brushes 3 Piece Flawless Complexion Set $42.00
Review: BoxyCharm June 2018
I'm a huge fan of Luxie Brushes and use some of them daily. I don't already have this set so I was happy about this as well. This set comes with a Luxie Rose Gold Duo Fiber Powder Brush 516, Luxie Rose Gold Tapered Highlight Brush 522, and Luxie Rose Gold Precision Foundation 660. I am loving the tapered highlight brush and I'm sure I'll use the duo fiber power brush soon too!

Girlactik Matte Lip Paint in Blossom $23.00
Review: BoxyCharm June 2018
Girlactik has to be one my my favorite brands for liquid lipsticks. They are super pigmented and not drying at all. Unfortunately, I didn't get the color Playful which was the one I wanted. Instead, I got Blossom which is a red color. I know I won't wear red so I tried to trade for the color Playful on the Boxy Babes forum. I couldn't find anyone that wanted to part with it so I ended up trading for the Ofral Liquid Lipstick in Verona. I wish BoxyCharm would let us choose our lip colors when there is a variation. It would make things alot easier and I wouldn't have to trade which is an additional cost for me. Verona is pretty and I like the formula. I just love the Girlactik formula more. Either way I'm happy I traded and got a color that I will wear.

Jonteblu Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil $5.00
Review: BoxyCharm June 2018
This is a gray eyeliner. I won't use its so I will just put it aside for a giveaway.

Battington Monroe Silk Lashes $28.00
Review: BoxyCharm June 2018
I don't use false lashes but these do look pretty. I will probably save them for a special occasion. I would prefer to not get lashes as many people including myself don't use them enough to want them in a subscription box.

Sol de Janeiro Bum Bum Cream $10.00
Review: BoxyCharm June 2018
This was probably the item that I was most excited for. I tried a sample of this and it smells SO GOOD! The scent lasts a very long time too. The Bum Bum cream is supposed to firm up your butt. I don't know how true that is but I will use it just for the scent alone. It's said to smell like caramel and pistachios. I don't smell pistachios but I do smell heaven! This is a very tiny jar but I definitely plan to buy a larger size since I love the smell so much. There is a set that comes with the body spray and a medium sized jar. I think I'm going to pick that up before my vacation.

TOTAL VALUE: $136.00

Here are swatches of the palette and Ofra Liquid Lipstick in Verona:

Overall, I was very pleased with this box. Even though a couple things were a miss for me the items I did like are GREAT products. I just love this subscription so much and can't wait to get my box next month. So far the spoilers are a Tarte Settng Spray, the Crown Brush Fuego Palette, the Pharmacy Bright On Mask, and Dr. Brandt Needles No More No More Baggage Eye De-Puffing Gel. So it looks like we are getting one or the other for the setting spray/palette and the mask/eye gel. I was really hoping for the palette and the spray but I'll be happy with either one.
