Boxy Charm: May 2018 ✨

This month’s box celebrates Boxy Charm’s birthday, so we get 6 full size products! I think I’m going to start reviewing my monthly Boxy Charms 🙂

First thing in my box is the Pür Sculptor Palette, which retails for $30. It includes 2 matte contour shades and 2 highlighters. The formula of the contours are super pigmented and powdery, so definitely use a light hand. The highlights are also pigmented and smooth. Next, is the Cover FX Blurring Primer retailing for $38. I LOVE THIS PRIMER. It’s honestly a tinted version of NYX’s Angel Veil Primer. It’s smoothing and blurs my pores. My favorite product in the box is the Pretty Vulgar Ink Gel Eyeliner retailing for $24. First of all, THE PACKAGING! The packaging is the cutest thing, it’s like an actual ink pot. This eyeliner is really creamy and dark. It also claims to have vitamin C to condition your lids. Next, we have the Aesthetica 3 piece Eye Trio ($45) and the P12 Face Brush ($27). The trio comes with an angled eyeliner brush, a brow spoolie, and a fine tipped eyeliner brush. The face brush is tapered and perfect for contouring. Lastly, is the Beauty Creations Liquid Lip Gloss in the shade Kiss Me ($10). It’s a fun raspberry shade perfect for spring. It does dry down matte (and it smells like strawberries).

Total of this month’s box: $174

My favorites: Pretty Vulgar Gel Eyeliner and Cover FX Blurring Primer

Atlanta!

So we recently went to Atlanta and I thought I would share our fun experience! First, we went walking through downtown Atlanta and it’s so beautiful. We had fun sightseeing and everyone was so friendly. Later that day, we visited the Coca Cola Museum, which was a blast! On our tour we learned about the history of the soda and tasted tons of different flavors from all over the world. The next day, we took a tour through CNN Headquarters and got a peek of what happens behind the scenes. On our last day, we went to the lovely Georgia Aquarium, which I totally suggest if you’re going with your family. Atlanta is such a fun city and you should definitely go if you haven’t been!

“I Am Malala”

My favorite book at the moment is “I Am Malala” by Malala Yousafzai and Christina Lamb. It’s such an inspiring book that I think everyone should read at some point. Learn about what it’s like living in Swat in Pakistan under the Taliban and the importance of education. Malala fights hard for her education and risks her life. It’s an uplifting story that deserves the attention of all. I really suggest this book. Also, after you’ve read the book, make sure you donate to the Malala Fund to continue the fight for education for all boys and girls.

YSL Touche Eclat Blur Primer

I recently got the YSL Touche Eclat Blur Primer and I’m in love! It makes my skin so smooth and radiant. It has a gel-like consistency that smooths your skin. It does have tiny bits of glitter that gives your face a soft glow. The primer is packed with corn oil, apricot kernel oil, passiflora oil, and rice bran oil to nourish your skin. After using it a couple of times, I have noticed that it blurs my pores making them less obvious. This primer is perfect, yet quite pricey at $52. If you’re willing to splurge, then definitely get this primer NOW!
