Subscription Satelite: BoxyCharm August 2020

Hello to all of you beautiful nerds and welcome back from traveling the vast nerd universe! I am back with my last subscription box of August!

 

BoxyCharm August 2020

 

Finally, my BoxyCharm arrived today and was wondering when it will arrive. Sometimes this box does get to me late and I can see why since FedEx does take a while. This box is $25 a month and you get full size prestige to luxury brands! Let’s see what I got!

 

Glam Glow Moisturizer: First up is a moisturizer from Glam Glow and it was not originally my choice. Last month they were not only having this for choice but also the Too Faced Born This Way concealer and I could choose my shade except they were out of my shade. I usually do the going lighter than my foundation like everyone else says and tried but nope! I had to choose this instead when I already have so many moisturizers. At least I get to try more Glam Glow! This moisturizer contains cannabis oil which helps calms redness and irritation which can be a good thing since sometimes my skin can get a little irritated with some face products. It also helps bring relief from skin stress. I will have to try this out and see how it goes! I am not knocking it! This retails for $54!

Butter London Teddy Boy Eye Shadow Pallet: I was hoping to get this in my box since I felt a little sad for not getting a shadow pallet last month. This pallet is a nine-pan pallet that is cool toned with mattes and shimmers. Finally, a cool toned neutral pallet since it feels like so many brands have been doing nothing but warm toned and wait until fall to do cool toned. Come on guys, not everyone does the seasons when it comes to eye looks. I will have to see how this pallet performs since I did love the other pallet, I got from them before in this box and that was a six-shadow pallet. This retails for $28.

Milk MakeUp Koosh Brow Gel: Next up is something from Milk MakeUp! I heard of this brand before all over YouTube and wondered about them. I know I am more of a drugstore girl but sometimes I do get curious about some of the more higher end brands and this is one of them. When I heard that they are in this month’s box with a brow product I figured that everyone would probably get this, but it looks like anyone who got the moisturizer did. This is a vegan formula and is made with cannabis oil to condition the hair and also has thick fibers too to shape and define the brows. It is also tinted too so depending on what you put as your hair color they would match the brow color with this product. I will have to see how well they matched my brow shade to this since last month’s brow pencil did have a bit of a red tint according to my fiancé but let’s see how it goes. This item retails for $20.

Aesthetica Sunset Bronzer: Next up is a bronzer from a brand called Aesthetica. When I heard that a bronzer was going to be in a few variations I was hoping to get it since I feel like I have a few in my collection and wanted to build it up a little. This is a coppery shade that gives off the right amount of glow without stepping on the beach. This also gives off the right kind of tone of giving a nice tan. I have to try this out and see how it goes. I am hoping it’s not too dark since my skin is more of a light to medium tone. I have tried really dark bronzers and they are not that flattering. So, let’s see what happens! This retails for $24.

Elizabeth Mott Thank Me Later Eye Primer: Final item is something that is a bit of a blast from the past and that is the Thank Me Later Eye Primer from Elizabeth Mott! I remembered this appeared on Ipsy as a product in the Glam Bag for a long time and now seeing it here and have a full-size tube of it! This is a long wearing primer that dries down quickly and translucent to give shadows a perfect canvas and it does protect them from creasing. I hope this is true since some people do have issues with shadows creasing on whatever primer they use. I have to see how well this works with my shadows. This retails for $20.

 

That completes this post! I am happy with this month’s box because I felt that I got items that I would go for and be able to use on a regular basis. I am glad to try another eye shadow primer since I am now building a small collection and don’t have to buy another one for a while. Also, happy to get a bronzer this time since I wanted to try another one and hoping it’s not too dark for my skin. I am also glad to try more Butter London and Glam Glow and of course now finally trying out Milk MakeUp For the first time. I will definitely do a Review Round Up after my Favorites post which is next! Stay tuned!
