June 2017 BoxyCharm

Downtown Charm

Hey cupcakes! The June BoxyCharm theme is "Downtown Charm," and it is my favorite BoxyCharm box yet! I also got every single shade/product variation I wanted. Let's take a look:

  • RealHer eyeshadow pallete (II)$28. I heard a lot about how the color payoff wasn't good but they were pretty opaque when I swatched them, perhaps a couple colors were chalky, but very useable. I also got the shades I wanted!
  • Biobelle Cosmetics sheet masks (3 of them) $14.97. I haven't tried these, but I'm excited to use them. 

  • Diamond Glow Powder $26.99. Appropriately named, this highlight looks like tiny diamonds on your skin. 
  • Ofra Cosmetics liquid lipstick "Tuscany" $19.90. It applies smooth and dries down pretty quickly. I'm excited to use it. 
  • Luxie Beauty Rose Gold tapered face brush $24. My brush came bent and I'm not really sure what'd I'd use this for, but you can never have too many brushes right?

All items are full size and the box total is $113.86 and included at least three products I'll use.  CLICK HERE to experience next month's Boxy Charm with me!

Amazon Toothbrush Makeup Brush review

Hey cupcakes! I was sent these brushes by a seller on Amazon for my honest review, so here it is! I've been wanting to try these style of brushes for some time now, and after I received the Crown brush in my Boxy Charm, I couldn't wait to get my hands on some more. Here is what this set comes with:

You get five toothbrush style makeup brushes, a beauty sponge, and cleaning egg. The current list price for this set is about $12 which is a STEAL! I found these brushes to be every bit as good as the Crown Brush -and you'd pay more for that one brush than this whole set!

It is a must for everyone from makeup beginner to pro. I use my set every day. CLICK HERE to get your set.

FCS Treat Yo Self Haul

Hey cupcakes and fellow Fortune Freaks! I just thought I'd share my Fortune Cookie Soap "Treat Yo Self 2k17" haul and my thoughts. Here's what I got, except for a "The Pit personal space" that was accidentally left out of my box. Fortune Cookie Soap has amazing customer service though, so I have no doubt it'll be taken care of!

Snake Juice OCD- To me, it's a little odd of a scent. For all you old school Fortune Freaks, it's got that plasticy smell of "What? It's 5 o'clock Somewhere" but with coffee instead of strawberry. It's not the scent for me.

You Beautiful Tropical Fish FCS-First off, the mermaid shimmer dusting is BEAUTIFUL. The scent is a little more "melon" than I'd like, but it's a good summer scent, and so cute.

Swan Ronson Hair Oil- I think white tea and raspberry is the notes that stand out to me the most. I like it!

Stop. Pooping. toilet spray- SUCH a funny moment in the show to use as the name. This scent is probably my favorite of the ones I got (though I have high hopes for The Pit.) I LOVE apple scents.

So yeah, that's it for me cupcakes. If you ordered this collection, tell me what your favorites are! Don't forget to comment and subscribe as it helps me out so so much.

Ulta Haul

Hey cupcakes! I just wanted to share my Ulta haul with you guys, and my thoughts on all the products. I got Stila magnificent metals glitter & glow in "Smoldering Satin", the Naked basics palette, a NYX full coverage concealer, and a NYX stay matte but not flat powder foundation, for a total of $68.

My thoughts:

  • Stila magnificent metals glitter & glow in "Smoldering Satin." First of all, these are absolutely GORGEOUS. They apply easily, and I think they would be good for anyone beginner all the way up to pro. My only complaint is that the glitter in them tends to migrate on the eye throughout the day.
  •  The Naked basics palette. I have wanted this palette for YEARS and it was such a disappointment. The first three colors are very similar, and all the shades are chalky and difficult to blend. I'd take ColourPop shadows over these any day of the week.

  •  NYX full coverage concealer. The lightest shade offered isn't light enough for me, but I like the texture and coverage. I haven't been able to try it under my eyes yet, but for $5, even if it's just good to clean up my brows, I feel like it'll be worth what I paid.
  •  NYX stay matte but not flat powder foundation. The shade seems okay for me, but I would definitely not call this a foundation. The only way I'd feel comfortable wearing it is over a foundation.
So those are my thoughts, lovelies. Do you own any of these products? If so, what do you think about them? Don't forget to subscribe, dears.
