June Boxycharm verdict

Although not as exciting to me as the April box, the June spoilers looked quite promising. After receiving the June box and spending some time trying everything out, I’m ready to deliver my final verdict.

Overall

I’m quite happy with this month’s box. Definitely amazing value and quite a few brands I’ve never tried before. Not every item is a hit for me, and that’s to be expected. But there weren’t any hard misses either!

 

Alamar palette

I was so excited for this Cuba inspired palette! I’ve been wanting to try more colourful eye looks.

The shimmery ones swatch and apply beautifully!! A++ evenness and pigmentation. I’m not as big of a fan of the mattes. They are quite good, but slightly patchier than the shimmers. Also a little on the powdery side for me, but there’s almost no fallout.

 

 

Jonteblue waterproof eyeliner pencil

It’s not as rich of a black as my favorite black liner, which is Smashbox Always On. But I do like it since it’s long wearing and didn’t budge. I didn’t even have to set it with powder. Both the eyeshadow and eyeliner wore well all day.

 

 

Battington Silk Lashes

I wanted to wear these to an ice cream date with my bestie…but they are wayy to #extra for daytime. Nevertheless, the band didn’t feel too clunky and I’m super glad to have my first pair of high quality lashes.

 

 

Luxie brushes

I’m somewhat disappointed in these. There’s a foundation brush, powder brush, and highlight brush. But they all look and feel quite similar. I would’ve preferred the powder brush to be bigger. I enjoy Luxie brushes since they’re always soft and easy to blend with.

 

 

Brazilian Bum Bum Cream

It’s pronounced “boom boom!” I honestly took the name of this cream seriously and thought it was only for the butt!! I’ve been mainly using it on my stomach in hopes that the tightening effect will magically give me abs. It smells wonderful and feels really nice, but this little guy retails for $10!

Girlaktik lip paint

I saved the best for last! I’m not a brown lip person, but lately I’ve been wearing this colour whenever I do a smokier eye. The formula is by far one of the best ones I’ve ever used. It’s light and comfortable, but also highly pigmented and long wearing. The picture is was it looked like after I ate a sandwich.
