Boxy Charm Review - August

Boxy Charm time!

But first.....I leave for my surprise Bachelorette weekend later today!  Eeek!!!

Alright back to business.

This box is $21.00 a month with free shipping and is a “beauty box subscription that surprises you each month with the best beauty products from popular and chic brands. Each box contains full size and luxury size beauty samples from preferred well-known brands.” They aim to cover a whole look from makeup to nails, which I really like. 

The theme is “Beach Babe” which isn’t totally portrayed by the products.  It may as well be “Pretty girl” which would fit just as well. Womp womp.

Here is the August Boxy Charm! 

           1)      Enter Pronoun Blowtorch Bronzer   10 g. (FULL SIZE)
            Ok I’ve got something to admit…I have no idea what to do with a bronzer.  This stuff looks 
            really dark to me too, I would make a mess of myself!  Can we talk about the brand name   
            real fast?  At first when I read the beauty card I thought they forgot to enter the name of the  
            brand and that was their place holder!
Full Size: $35.00 My Value: $35.00

           2)      Tarina Tarantino Conditioning Lip Sheen in “Floriculture” – 3.5 g.  (FULL SIZE)
I realized after I took all of my photos that I didn’t actually open anything up so you could see the color. Whoops.  This would best be described as almost a maroon lipstick.  In other words, no thanks.
Full Size: $22.00 My Value: $22.00

3)   ModelCo Cheek & Lip Tint in “Rosy Red” – .33 oz.  (FULL SIZE)
I’ve already gotten this stuff from a beauty box and I didn’t really like it.  It turned my finger totally pink and it was just too much of a hassle to use.  The color didn’t last very long either; it wore off in patches on my lips.
Full Size: $22.00 My Value: $22.00

4)   Morphe Brushes Powder Brush  – (FULL SIZE)
I don’t have much to say about this, it’s just another makeup brush. All I can tell you is I would never pay full price for this.
Full Size: $19.99 My Value: $19.99

5)   OFRA Cosmetics Lip Liner in “Silk” – .04 oz. (FULL SIZE)
Another lip liner in some neutral shade. The end.
Full Size: $13.00 My Value: $13.00

Final Cost: $21.00
Final Value: $111.99

Well this looks like a fantastic value, but as always I think that is more due to really high prices of the items.  <------- same sentence I used last month, still true.

I don’t think I will really get use out of any of these products, which stinks.

I wonder if I am just coming to the end of the road on beauty boxes?  I feel like I am always getting the same dang thing.  Is it because I’ve received them for so long and its no longer exciting to me, or because they really are getting boring with the products they send?

  1. I've been following along for a few months and I have had similar negative experiences with "beauty boxes", so I totally understand being "done" with it! Recently, I found the Pop Sugar Must Have box ( and I LOVE it. This month's had over $200 worth of goodies ($40/month), including Kendra Scott earrings that I had been wanting to buy for quite some time that are worth $52! I usually end up loving half of the contents, then save the other half for last-minute birthday or housewarming gifts. Win-win. Good luck!

  2. I am always hesitant about bronzer too. I always look ridiculous when I use it. Also, I do not understand why some makeup brushes are so expensive!!!
