BOXYCHARM October 2016: Boxy Bazaar

Hello, Charmer! 
This month, Boxycharm had a whole lot of surprises but very few sneak peeks. This month of October we saw sneak peeks of items that we weren't guaranteed. Boxycharm is only $21/month and the monthly boxes usually retail anywhere between $100 - $130 per box. Now let's take a look at the goodies I received this month...  

First up is IBY Beauty Three’s Company Eye Shadow Trio that retails for $19. These three colors are essential for an everyday makeup look and also a staple since there is one shimmery gold color, a matte light brown color and a sheer pearl color. These did not seem patchy when I swatched them and they actually felt really smooth and buttery. The great thing about this trio is that it's also paraben-free! I have a big eye shadow collection so I was not too thrilled about this product but I can always use it as a travel size palette when I travel.




Next up is a product I am not too thrilled about. I have an oily complexion so I tend to stay away from any form of liquid or cream makeup products (except for foundation and concealer). This TEMPTU Shimmer Bronzer retails for $29.50. I am not a bronzer type of girl and this seemed too runny. I will however give this a try and use a stippling brush to apply this product. As you can see in the picture below, they bronzer does not seem too dark for me so that is a plus.



This next product is something I was so excited for since it involves three Luxie brushes! All three brushes combined retail for $36. These brushes are really soft and of great quality. We received the following three brushes:
1. Luxie 229 Tapered Blending Brush
2. Luxie 205 Tapered Blending Brush
3. Luxie 237 Blending Brush

Next we have Briogeo Blow Dry Perfection Heat Protectant Creme that retails for $24 at Sephora. I have not tried this product but I am a big believer in heat protectors, especially since this one claims to protect against heat damage of up to 425°F. Let's hope this makes my hair smell as good as it smells in the bottle while protecting my hair and leaving it extra smooth without a greasy feeling.





Last but certainly not least we have this Starlooks Ultra Matte Lip Paint in the shade "Sultry" which retails for $19. This shade has to be one of my favorites for the fall time. This is definitely smooch proof. This along with the brushes we received has to be my favorite out of all the products. The picture below doesn't do this product any justice since it is a lower res picture but trust me when I say that this is the perfect shade for Fall and Winter. 

In total this box retails for $127.50 and you only pay $21/month! I rate this month's box a 7 out of 10 since I was hoping to receive the OFRA highlighter instead of the Temptu bronzer as well as the eye shadow trio and the heat protectant was out of the ordinary for me. I cannot wait to receive next month's box since sneak peeks have already been surfacing on Boxycharm's snapchat!
