Whoa Nelly, BOXYCHARM has out done themselves this month.  Seriously, if you haven’t checked out this company and are into subscription boxes you need to.  I enjoy it so much more than Birchbox and Ipsy, and granted it’s more expensive at $21 a month, but it is so worth it.  You get five full-size products in every box and the majority of the brands they feature are high end.  You get much more bang for your buck, and the products I received in this month’s box were valued at $114!! CLICK HERE to check out their website, you won’t be disappointed.

I also want to take a moment to make the disclaimer that this is not a sponsored post.  I am newer to the blogging world, thus everything that is seen on this blog I have purchased myself.  All opinions are my own and none of these products have been sent to me or are PR samples, etc.  If I ever do use products or services on my blog that fit those criteria it will be disclosed.  Now back to the makeup…

Coastal Scents Revealed Palette

The first thing that caught my eye was the Coastal Scents Revealed Palette.  I couldn’t believe it, were my eyes deceiving me?  We got a whole eyeshadow palette in this box valued at $39.95!  I am stoked.  I’ve heard great things about this palette and that some consider it a dupe for Urban Decay’s Naked Palette.  It contains 20 eyeshadows in mostly neutral tones mixing shimmer shades and mattes.  I can’t wait to try this palette out! 

Next are the Lina Lashes Luxury Mink Lashes that are advertised as cruelty free & hypoallergenic and retail for $30.00.  Ok, now I am going to let you in on a little secret...As a beauty blogger this is probably a sin to admit, but I can’t apply lashes to save my life.  The glue, and cutting them, and then trying to take them off = disasterville.  Maybe this pair will change it all for me, I will keep you posted. 

I was so excited to see this Mistura Beauty Solutions Retractable Beauty Brush in my box.  I will definitely get a lot of use out of this and it will be perfect for throwing in my bag to touch up my makeup with powder throughout the day.  This brush retails for $19.99.  I heard everyone was getting a Be a Bombshell Lip product in their box this month and I got this lip gloss in Sangria.  Ehh, I’m not really impressed. It’s a super glittery pinky red that leaves sparkles on your lips after it wears off.  Not my really my thing, will probably be giving this one to my younger cousin.

And last but not least I received an Eva NYC Hungry Hair Oil Treatment.  From what I’ve read this is similar to argan oil in that it’s recommended to smooth a couple drops onto wet hair to tame fly aways and frizz and help repair split ends.  I’ll have to see with this one.  My hair is really fine so any heavy oils really weigh it down, but I'm hoping I can make this work if I apply just a tiny amount.  

So there are all the products in my BOXYCHARM this month.  I hope you enjoyed this post, and if you aren’t already subscribed to BOXYCHARM I definitely recommend checking them out. Leave me a comment below letting me know if you subscribe to any monthly boxes and which one is your favorite!
