Hey Guys,
Today I'm going to share my thoughts on my BoxyCharm for July! 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. They also offer an upgraded box every quarter called BoxyLuxe. This is an additional $28.99 a quarter.  The theme for July was "Au Naturale". I was again not too excited about the spoilers I saw for this month before it shipped out. Keep reading to see what I got and to hear my thoughts. Also, make sure to check out the discount codes below for the month!

BoxyCharm July 2019 "Au Naturale"

Butter London Natural Goddess Eyeshadow Palette $32.00
Review: BoxyCharm July 2019
 The packaging of this palette is really pretty. I also do like the first 4-5 shades of the palette. The issue I have is that there are no transition shades so I can't create a whole look with just this one palette. I also feel like the blue doesn't belong in it. I am not going to swatch because I'm going to gift it or sell it.

Luxie Gaea 3 Piece Brush Set $30.00
Review: BoxyCharm July 2019
I'm a big fan of Luxie brushes but this set didn't do anything for me. The blending brush looks nice but I have so many of those. I never use flat foundation brushes and I have a few liner/detailer brushes too. I'm also not a fan of the style of this brush compared to their other pink brush collection. I will be passing this on as well.

Elemis Superfood Vital Veggie Mask $35.00
Review: BoxyCharm July 2019
I am familiar with the Elemis brand and love face masks so I look forward to trying this. I have so much skincare it's going to last me a life time!

Appeal Gel Liner in Desert Taupe $21.00
Review: BoxyCharm July 2019
 Eyeliner just doesn't excite me since I never wear it on top. I only wear it on my waterline and I  mostly wear nude. I will save this as well and pass it along.

Alamar Cosmetics Mother of Pearl Gloss in Sirenita $10.00
Review: BoxyCharm July 2019
I'm not a fan of lip gloss especially pink glitterly gloss. I would have much rather received the DesNUDEas Lip Gloss from Alamar. That being said, my friend told me that this isn't THAT pinks so I many give it a try just to see the formula. 

TOTAL VALUE: $128.00


Elemis- $20 off $125 site wide with code BOXY20
Alamar Cosmetics- 25% off site wide with code BOXY
Luna By Luna- 20% off site wide with code BOXY20
Appeal- 40% off site wide with code BOXYCHARM40
Butter London- 20% off site wide with code BLBOXY
Luxie- 20% off site wide with code BCLUXIEGAEA
Koh Gen Do- 25% off site wide with code BOXY2019

Overall, this box was mostly a miss for me. Even though some of the shadows in the palette were pretty, I know I know I won't reach for it since I can't create a full look with it. The eyeliner and gloss are both a miss for me as well since I don't wear them on a regular basis. The brush set is also a miss just because I have so many brushes and the ones in this set I won't wear and I already have a ton of. The Elemis mask is the one thing that I am excited about. If you look at it from a price perspective, this one mask costs more than the entire box. It's still a great value but I am starting to get a ton of stuff that I won't use and I'll be gifting or using in giveaways. I'm wondering if I need to stop the subscription boxes. That being said, we will see if I have better luck with the August box. I have seen some sneak peaks for the September BoxyLuxe and it looks good so far!
