Boxycharm | June 2019

Hello, hello!! It has been awhile since I talked anything beauty around here and I know, I am SUPER late to the party with my June 2019 Boxycharm but, I HAD to talk about it with you sooometime.

I actually canceled my subscription after receiving this box because I was so disappointed and underwhelmed for too many months in a row. I’m also completely bogged down with unused makeup and skincare right now so one of my subscriptions had to go. I looked at spoilers and wasn’t sad about missing out on this month’s at all but I DID see something I want in next month’s… we’ll see how long I can stay away…

What Was In My Box?!

Theme: Getaway

Dirty Little Secret
Lip Liner in Rosie Posie

Boxycharm’s Description

Smooth and creamy, this Dirty Little Secret Lip Liner is here to help you create the perfect pout.

My First Impressions

The tip of the pencil broke off immediately at first use because, despite the description, it was far from creamy. It was super difficult to get any color payoff with. I had to push down really hard for anything to show up on my lips and it felt so dry– tugging at my skin with each swipe. I’m also not the biggest fan of the light flesh color but, it did look gorgeous paired with the lipgloss I also received in this box (below).

Skin&Co Roma
Truffle Therapy Whipped Cleansing Cream

Boxycharm’s Description

Banish dull skin with Truffle Therapy Whipped Cleansing Cream. This luxurious cream formula gently and effectively removes all makeup and impurities, while hydrating dry and sensitive skin. Formulated with pure Black Truffle extract and Sweet Almond oil, this gentle cleanser delivers intense hydration while improving skin resilience and tone. This cleanser is formulated with essential fatty acids to help maintain the skin’s natural moisture barrier.

My First Impressions

I have a sample size one of these already and I hate how it’s used. You apply it over your makeup like lotion and THEN, wash it off. To me… that feels disgusting but, you may like it so I’ll be adding it into my giveaway coming up SOON!

Retail Value: $25
Cruelty-Free?
Yes

Dominique Cosmetics
Lemonade Lipgloss in Peach Tea

Boxycharm’s Description

Add hydrating shine and fullness to your lips with the lightweight, non-sticky balm like Lemonade Lip Gloss by Dominique Cosmetics. The sheer gloss is long lasting and flexible so you can wear it alone or layered over your favorite lipstick.

My First Impressions

I am in looove!! This lipgloss was super lightweight, truly non-sticky, and even more hydrating than a balm!! The shade, Peach Tea, was shiny yet, elegant and classy. The name of it made me assume it would be more of an orangey color, not this super light pink that it was but, I’m not complaining. It’s sooo pretty!! I would purchase every single other shade available, too.

Touch in Sol
No Poreblem Prime Essence

Boxycharm’s Description

Let your makeup stay a while with your new Touch in Sol No Poreblem Prime Essence. Infused with Calendula Officinalis Flower Extract, this primer tightens up your pores keeping your skin silky smooth.

My First Impressions

I haven’t tried this at all yet, not even to just sniff it. Have any of you? Let me know if there’s a strong scent like the last product by Touch in Sol Boxycharm gave us… I won’t bother with it if there is and it’ll end up being another giveaway item!!

tarte
tarteist PRO Glow Cheek Palette V3

Boxycharm’s Description

Meet your new everyday staple! This 6-shade tarteist PRO Glow Cheek Palette V3 formulated with Amazonian clay delivers streak & fade-free flawless wear. Tap into the blush, highlighter & bronzer shades for a sculpted, dimensional look.

My First Impressions

tarte’s Amazonian clay pressed powders are too subtle and difficult to blend. I just prefer so many other brands for highlighters, blushes, and bronzers/contour. I shouldn’t have even touched this palette. Ugh. I had just thrown away a ton of their blushes, highlighters, eyeshadows, etc. so I should’ve known this was the same formula… honestly, tarte needs to stick to making skincare, foundation, and concealer only.

  1. Oh man, the last and final one. I wonder why the products have been taking such a backslide.
    Bleah, the pencil sounds difficult to work with.
    Man skincare is getting crazy, truffle extract? WOW. It sounds fancy, too bad it wasn’t to your liking.
    Does the gloss have a peach smell too? It sounds so yummy! Omg, I thought the tarte palette was so freaking cool but it turned out so poor! It would have been so great if it worked well because its such a good all in one/ travel palette! I agree though, I’ve tried their powder product and I’m just NOT IMPRESSED. Is it just the picture or isit super not pigmented?

    1. Weeell… maybe not my absolute FINAL one but, yeah, just cancelled for now. πŸ˜› I saw there’s a BECCA powder in August’s box & I want it!!! I just don’t want to resubscribe so soon lol.

      Yeeeah skincare is super crazy now!! There are so many different ingredients I’ve never heard of being used now. The truffle extract stuff smells nice & works alright, but it just wasn’t for me. πŸ˜›

      No the lipgloss just smells like makeup. I wish it smelled like peach!! & the tarte palette LOOKS gorgeous but it sucks. It was super not pigmented. It actually looked even LESS pigmented in real life than in the picture.

      1. OH MAN HAHA. Its alright, maybe when the flow starts getting better or after you’ve had a whole box of empties THEN start again. Omg, that’s probably why I’ve never been drawn to buying their palettes. PIGMENTATION IS KEY. HAHA

    1. I really did love that lipgloss but yeah, doesn’t make up for the whole rest of the flop products lol. I was actually insecure about my skin so thanks so much for complimenting it!! ❀ You're the best, Jennie!!

  2. That sucks that the box was underwhelming for you. I hate that. I wouldn’t be too excited about most of these products either. I’ve never gotten Boxycharm, but as you know I do get Ipsy. Sometimes I wonder why I’m still subscribed to them because it’s been so blah lately. However, this month I was super excited about the products they picked for me. I even ordered a full size add-on product for $12. Well, guess what? I never received the add-on that I paid for! I contacted them and they are sending me a replacement, but before that they told me to make sure the product wasn’t in the pink shipping envelope because they put it in there and not in the actual makeup bag. I’m sure it’s protocol to ask that first, but it almost felt like an insult to my intelligence. As if I didn’t already check that. Apparently a lot of other people who ordered add-ons this month didn’t get theirs either.

    1. Ughh, see?! I’m glad that you think these products are unexciting, too. πŸ˜› I actually love Ipsy & I’m not usually disappointed with what they give me! I especially am impressed with the Plus box. I can’t believe they asked you if you looked in the bag though– even if it’s ‘protocol,’ that’s hella rude… I’m pretty sure you wouldn’t have missed a FULL sized product? Wow I hope you get what you ordered ASAP! They should give you your money back or some points for it being late, too.

  3. I can definitely understand why you would want to cancel after getting several disappointing products and already feeling like you have so many unused products! As for June’s box, that lipgloss sounds amazing! I’ve never heard of a lipgloss feeling more hydrating than a balm, that really is incredible!
    Also a truffle whipped cleanser?! I’ve never heard of such a thing but that sounds odd lol. I’ve never been one to wash off my makeup with a cleanser though… I prefer removing my makeup with wipes and then washing my face with a cleanser lol. It feels cleaner to me! πŸ˜‰

    Liked by 1 person

    1. Yeah, I just think my other full-sized box has been so much more exciting each month. I’ll probably come back to Boxycharm in the future because I’m already sad about missing August’s but I’m gonna try to stay away as long as I can. πŸ˜›

      I am so impressed with that lipgloss. It truly was so nice & hydrating!

      The cleanser smells really nice lol I’m not even sure what truffle is though! This one is especially weird because you rub it on your face while it’s still dry… I don’t know… I’m not a fan. πŸ˜›

      1. Oh, which other subscription has full-size products? I always thought Boxycharm was the only full-size one (so I always thought it was the best haha). I guess that shows how much attention I’ve paid! πŸ˜‰

        Oh that is weird to apply it on dry skin! I wouldn’t like that lol.

        Liked by 1 person

        1. The Ipsy Glam Bag PLUS is also full-sized but, it’s a few more dollars than Boxycharm. I still think it’s better & worth the extra money though!! & Don’t worry, I don’t expect you to keep up with all my sub boxes LOL. They do become a bit much!!

          YEAH! Super weird to apply it on dry skin. I hated it when I tried the sample!

  4. I don’t blame you for cancelling, girl! I woulda done the same thing! What a bummer that you didn’t like the box :/ I do think that the lipgloss is so cute, though!! I used to always wear bolder reds and plums, but I’m in such a pinky-nude lip gloss craze lately lol! Loved reading your post! x

    1. I am just annoyed with Boxycharm! I feel like they aren’t even trying with their regular boxes now that they have the extra big ones quarterly, like they save all the good stuff for the Luxe.

      I do love the lipgloss though! So happy you think it’s cute, too. πŸ™‚ Lip colors are so fun to change up but I’d say pink nude glosses have always been my go-to/fave, love that you’re getting into them lately! ❀

  5. That sucks that you’ve been disappointed with the boxes lately. But I guess it had to go you can always buy the things you want or wait until you’ve used up some of your stuff πŸ˜‰
    That lip liner looks pretty but of course it sucks lol.
    Omg that cleansing cream actually sounds quite good lol. I basically kind of do that already? Well I have an oil cleanser that dissolves all my makeup as well as a balm. I wonder how different this cleanser cream would be to those.
    That gloss looks great on you!!
    I actually havent tried the primer essence nor the tarte palette because I’m using other products. Almost though…

    1. The thing is, I don’t really NEED any makeup so I only really get the things in sub boxes because they’re such good deals & fun to get every month in the mail. I can’t make myself buy the one product I want, especially if I could have gotten it for LESS than its retail value along with other full sized goodies, y’know what I mean?

      Yeah, the lip liner was so dry but it’s long lasting & it’s easier to use after I’ve worn it down a bit.

      The cleansing cream smells really nice & made my skin soft, plus totally removed all my makeup. I wonder if you’d like it!

      I LOVE the lipgloss. I’ve been wearing it like everyday since I opened it!

      I need to find out if that primer essence has a scent before my giveaway reveal… I don’t know if I want it if it does! Looking forward to hearing your thoughts on it & the tarte palette.

      1. Yeah that’s very true. It’s so nice getting things for not even the full price. I just wanna save up some money for the time being. There are other things I want to do, non beauty / not blog related,.and for that I need money lol
        I wonder if I would like it too lol
        Oh well shoot I know I’m gonna use mine eventually so I’ll be sure to check for a scent and let you know. Matter of fact, let me go check for you now……
        So the product is really runny lol. It has the MILDEST scent, much much much more subtle than the other one we got back in February. It feels quite nice actually lol. I only put some in the back of my hand.

        1. Yeah, I like getting the sub boxes so much!! But I totally get why you’d wanna save money & not get them, too. There are def better ways to spend your $$.

          AW! Thank you so much for checking if the primer essence had a scent. I think you’ve made me want to use it instead of giving it away. πŸ˜€

  6. The lipgloss looks like the best thing in the box! I can see why you’re kind of disappointed in the boxes lately, though. I had to cancel mine months ago, but I haven’t looked into the samples in awhile. I think I’ll wait awhile before resubscribing (I miss getting beauty boxes πŸ˜‚)

  7. I’ve been wanting to try the Dominique Cosmetics glosses and shadows but haven’t tried anything from the brand yet. That gloss looks gorgeous.

    Also, LOL Boxycharm has been targeting me online with soooo many ads online – it’s getting annoying. πŸ˜‘

    1. That lipgloss is gorgeous, I’ve been wearing it a lot lately. It’s not that long-lasting but my lips feel so hydrated, it’s crazy!

      Boxycharm is crazy with the ads, they have been e-mailing loads since I canceled lol. They may have won me over with the deal they’re offering this month though… dang it!
