BOXYCHARM July Cutie Pie Subcription Box

If there every was a month to subscribe to BOXYCHARM it is now. In my last box review I questioned if they could push beyond the tired made for Instagram photoshopped "makeup" and actually curate a top-notch seasonal box once again. I am pleased to say they have done it for July. Lets take a look at what's inside! Because there is a seriously awesome eyeshadow palette in here!

First off, if you're not familiar by now BOXYCHARM is the only beauty box still worth subscribing to. For $21 mo. you get 4-5 full size beauty products at over a $100 retail value. Even on months where it's a little ho hum there's always one product worth the price of the box.

Blinc Electric Eyes Palette ($45)
This palette features a combination of 5 highly-pigmented jewel tone eyeshadows. The shades beautifully pair together to give you a gorgeous, golden eye look. Boxy always brings it with the compact neutral eyeshadow palettes and I never get tired of receiving them in my boxes. This set is stunning! The eyeshadow formula here is seriously amazing. It's like a powder/gel/cream hybrid that glides on with the most intense pigment and gives your eyes such a beaming glowy look.

The colors are so beautiful! The shimmering neutrals are bronzey enough for Summer but give you those deeper jewel tones to take you in to Fall. I swatched these in one swipe with NO primer. Seriously, these are some of the best formulas for eyeshadow's that I have tried in a long time. This palette compliments the NAKED Heat Palette really well. Because it is Boxycharm stamped I thought it might be exclusive to the box, but it's not! You can buy it (although, for $45) on the blinc website HERE. It's worth it though, I have been wearing this every day since I got it. It has quickly become my favorite palette to use for shimmery lids.

Colourpop Hello Kitty Ultra Satin-Lip in Hello Pretty ($6)
On the insert card it said this was the ultra-matte lip, but I received an ultra-satin lip which I was even more happy with. I didn't care for the Colourpop matte lips so I was hoping this finish would be less dry and it is. Subscribers will receive one of six shades. The color Hello Pretty is a deep raspberry pink. I am a pink lipstick girl and this is such a pretty tone, I know I will be reaching for this one a lot come early September when I start to transition my lip colors.

Bare Minerals invisible Light Translucent Power Duo ($32)
Here is where BoxyCharm cemented that July's box was awesome (if that eyeshadow palette didn't do it already!). We actually have a name brand in here again! This silky and ultra-fine combination of setting powder and finishing powder instantly vanishes on all skin tones. I really loved the concept of this duo being a matte setting powder and a luminous powder. It reminded me a lot of NARS Invisible set and the Hourglass ambient lighting powders combined.

The matte powder sets beautifully diffusing pores with out caking and the luminous side just gives your face a timeless, brightened effect. Finally they gave us a subtle highlighter and not a garishly glittery extreme one!

WinkyLux Uni-Brow Universal Brow Pencil ($12)
Calling your brow product a uni-brow is an interesting choice! This is definitely the prettiest brow pencil I've ever owned, the packaging is darling. This pencil is a medium ash brown with a angled shape and spoolie on the other end. The 2-step pencil is one and done, with a firm texture it's easy to shape and define. This was a little too dark for me but it's a nice brow pencil especially for doing full on brows and I love the packaging.

Project Beauty Spray, Set, Go Makeup Setting Spray ($32)
Keep your makeup fresh all day long. Just spray, set, and go! You got this! A makeup setting spray is a must in the Summer. I normally use Urban Decay or Skindinvia's setting sprays but the small size on this one will be perfect for popping in to my purse for travel. It also doesn't have any weird fragrance. I really need to check out Project Beauty more, I ended up loving their strawberry banana yogurt shampoo and need to re-stock.

BoxyCharm FINALLY gives us a full box of amazing products again. I was blown away by the value ($127) and awesome products in this months box. It seems they finally got the message! Remember if you subscribe during the same month a box is released you can still get the featured box of the month!
