Subscription Satelite: BoxyCharm July 2020

Hello to all of you beautiful nerds and welcome back from traveling the vast nerd universe! I am back with a new post!

BoxyCharm July 2020!

My BoxyCharm arrived and it arrived earlier like my Glam Bag Plus! I was surprised it also arrived on a Sunday again since FedEx delivered this while I was having brunch. I am not complaining since I’m happy to get this earlier even before my Choice Day on Tuesday. This box is $25 a month and you get five full size items from prestige and luxury brands. Let’s see what they sent me this month.
Skin Club Vitamin C Booster: First is my choice item for this month and it’s from Skin Club. It was a hard choice this month because there were two other serums, one was for lashes and the other was from Skin 111 but it was pollution protection so I decided on this one. This is the Vitamin C Booster Serum and it is supposed to help brighten the skin and fight against aging and also help protect against UV Rays. This is so important especially with how hot it gets here and everyone is social distancing at the beach now that getting that UV force on your skin can be harsh. I’m glad to get this and try this out. This retails for $49.95!
Hourglass Arch Brow Micro Sculpting Pencil: Next is something from Hourglass and it’s my first time trying them. I remembered one of their highlighters was on choice but didn’t choose them since my curiosity was not peaked into trying their formula out. I guess I don’t get too interested in luxury brands like most people but let’s see what this pencil is all about. This claims to create super defined brows with the super fine tip to make it look like you got micro bladed without the blade. I have to see how this goes since I do use brow products to keep my brows in place, especially towards the front where it can be bushy even when I maintain them but it’s good to get a brow pencil time to time. I thought it was an eyeliner but glad to get this instead. This retails for $28.
Pur Cosmetics Festival 2.0 Eye Pallet: I remembered getting the first one and glad to get the sequel! Like the last one, except that one had more mattes, this one has shimmer but more shimmer. This pallet has twelve shades like the last one from what I remembered and glad to get this one since I didn’t get a pallet last month. This retails for $36.
Hank & Henry Lip Love Lux Lipstick: Another item from Hank & Henry and this time it’s a lipstick. This lipstick is coated in a shimmery coating and it dissolves as you apply it. It is also stored in a ruby red container and it leaves a satin look or a moisturized sheen on your lips. This retails for $17.
Lavish Quick Dry Color Switch Cleaner: Final item is from Lavish and it’s their ever-so-famous Color Switch. When I saw this in my box I thought BoxyCharm Played a joke and sent me an empty tin but opened it and saw this and scanned the card to find out what it is. This is supposed to help you clean powder shadows off your brushes and it retails for $20.

That is it for this box! I’m actually happy about this one. I feel that they did this one better than the last since I mentioned how I felt that they threw my box together and sent it to me. I did tell them about how the Purlisse CC Cream was in my wrong shade and they apologized and gave me charms for it. They also explained that the shade chooser based on profile is still new to them with complexion products and to me that they should have gotten it down since they sent the foundation and concealer cards months ago. Glad that was resolved. Anyways, I will have to see how the pallet fairs since I did like the last one from last year and this one is the new one that they made. I have to see if they have a shade description for all the shades in this one and see how different it is. I am glad to get a new brow pencil to try out since I am using my Billion Dollar Brows Kit still and of course glad to try a new item from Hank & Henry and they have not gotten back to me about the Living Color pallet. I may have to find out some other way. And of course glad to try the color Switch since I do use a lot of powder shadows and will see how well it cleans off my brushes as I use them. I can’t wait to see what is up for choice this Tuesday and hoping its better because I felt with choice this time for July it was meh! I love skin care but I remembered there was more variety to choose from and I understand that they didn’t have much due to the pandemic but hoping its better this time. Also, I can’t wait to see what I get in my box in August!

That is it for this post! Glad that my box was better this month since the items were ones that I would use. Let’s see what August brings since it is my birthday month again. I am waiting for my Ipsy to arrive so it should be here this week. Until next time!

THe Subscription Satelite: BoxyCharm March 2020!

Hello to all of my beautiful nerds and welcome back from traveling the vast universe! I am back with another post!

BoxyCharm March 2020!

Now it’s time for my BoxyCharm for this month! This box is $25 a month and you get from prestige all the way to luxury products ranging from ones you find in the store to independent brands. You also get to choose a product every month for this box! Let’s see what I got this month!

Murad Hydro Dynamic Ultimate Moisture for Eyes: First up is a product from Murad and it’s my choice item! This is the Murad Ultimate Moisture for Eyes which is an eye cream that helps with fine lines and wrinkles and has a blend of hyrolonic acid and algae extracts to moisturize the eye area and great for sensitive skin. When I saw this as a choice item I had to try it since the other item happened to be a curling wand and sorry my hair is already curly so don’t need that. I have had pretty good experiences with Murad since they are well known for being good for sensitive skin and I believe it. I am still using the AHA and BHA scrub in my shower and have used up the Essential C Moisturizer and now get to try this out. This retails for $70!
Hank & Henry Living In Color Pallet: This month there were three shadow pallets and they were the Tarte Tartist ReMix Pallet, the BoxyCharm Hello Charmer Pallet, and this one the Hank & Henry Living In Color Pallet. I’ve heard of this brand and I got the eyeliner in my box a few months back but didn’t like it due to how the chisel tip was not working out for me but glad to get this pallet! This is a nine pan pallet that is inspired by both the 90s and 2000s and it can be worn on their own. I have to see what shades are in this pallet to see if I want to do certain looks with it. This retails for $27.
Pharmacy Very Cherry Cleansing Balm: Next is a product from Pharmacy and it’s their Very Cherry Cleansing Balm. I have used the Green Clean and got that as add-ons with my Ipsy and this time I got this version which is the cherry one in this subscription. Like the Green Clean it takes and melts makeup off leaving skin silky smooth and moisturized. When I tried the Green Clean my second time I noticed how my eyes stung a little bit which I am hoping this doesn’t happen with this one so I have to see how it goes! Glad to get another makeup cleansing item so I won’t have to stock up so soon! This item retails for $34!
Vintage by. Jessica Libersteind in Pink Sequin: Next is a lip gloss from a brand I’ve never heard of and it’s Vintage by Jessica Libersteind and the lip gloss is in Pink Sequin. This gloss is a sheer and glittery formula that you can wear alone or on top of other lip products. I prefer using a sheer lip gloss over other colors to give it a pop since my lips are a bit on the natural side and have to see how well it pairs with lipstick or liquid lipstick. This item retails for $25.
Project Beauty Haircut Almond Honey Intense Hair Yogurt Hair Mask: Final item is a hair mask from Project Beauty! I haven’t gotten a hair mask in so long since I’ve stopped using them especially when at certain times of the year I tend to get dandruff scabs even when the spring starts and have to start using the dandruff shampoo again. Which I have to do that right now and so far it’s doing okay. Anyways, this is another brand I’ve never heard of and this makes is made with yogurt protein, probiotics, kinwa, botanical and shea butters to help repair the hair. I will definitely use this since I do sometimes feel a little bit of dryness and can help strengthen my hair a bit. This retails for $10 which is not too bad!

Well guys that is it for this box! This was a pretty good box and glad I didn’t get anything from KVD Vegan Beauty. I know she is no longer with her brand but it still has her initials and you know my stance towards her lip products which are too drying for my liking. I’m glad to try out a new hair mask, a new lip gloss, the cherry version of Pharmacy’s cleansing balm, and of course something new from Murad which I do have some eye creams I am going through right now. I’m also glad to try another thing from Hank & Henry too since the eyeliner was not my favorite so I will definitely give them a chance with this pallet. I did select my choice for April and can’t wait to see what they give me for that since it’s an eye shadow pallet from Zoava and never tried them before. I hope BoxyCharm also gives me the card next month since I contacted them about that and no answer. I may have to bug them on Instagram or Facebook. Next will be GB Plus which I’m mad about and had to contact Ipsy about it too, just stay tuned guys!

Also, in case anyone has been following Nerdy SHique Transmissions, I haven’t done an episode last week due to what had happened to Omni Fandom Expo so I will be doing another and will give my thoughts on Corona Virus myself since now we are going into lock down too at work. Stay tuned for that episode.
