BoxyLuxe September 2018

FIRST OFF LET ME SAY… OH MY FREAKING GOD!!!! FINALLY HAVE MY BOXYLUXE AND I’M SUPER EXCITED!!!! πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ

Now that I got that out my system, I can continue to share this awesomeness that’s tucked nestled inside this box. September the 1st was a tragic fail, for some got on a waiting list and others was able to get through and receive a box. Myself and a number of other ladies were able to snag BoxyCharm’s first new upgrade box that’s released every 3 months which is cool. Just like receiving my fabfitfun box. Let’s take a look inside.

I’m loving the Tarte line…I was introduced to this line with BoxyCharm and been a fan since my first palette. Again, thanks to bc for this beautiful palette…this is the reason I wanted this box along with a few other products that’s included.

I’m so loving the cute rose gold crocodile packaging with gold trimming. Really gives you Park Avenue feel. Very lux and classy. One of the best palettes in my Tarte collection. 😊

The Tarte Park Ave Princess Chisel Palette is an amazonian clay infused bronzer bar that comes with 6 bronzing and highlighting powders. The two matte and two shimmery bronzing powders add a natural bronze, while the two matte highlighters add brilliance to any look. Mineral pigments and vitamin E make for the weightless wear of a power and the blendability of a cream.

# Tip 1 you can also use as a shadow

I was very disappointed when I saw that I wasn’t receiving the Laura Geller blusher but this instead. Never used Girlactik products before, not sure if I will like this…but I’ll try anything once. The packaging is cute, sleek and girlie that’s a plus in my book. ☺️ Definitely a sucker for compacts…it’s lightweight and did I mentioned girlie.

Formulated with crushed pearls, this creamy duo blends beautifully onto your skin, creating a fresh dewy radiance.

# Tip 2 Dab onto the highest points of your face to give you a nice glow

My 3rd product from Pretty Vulgar…blush, gel liner and now a smokey palette. Reason #2 why I wanted this box…after watching a demonstration video on boxycharm that’s when I wanted to get my hands on it.

12 highly pigmented shades is nestled inside this adorable palette with a nightingale on the front. Packaging is simple and retro at least too me. There’s mattes, shimmer and satin shades are soft in texture and the luxurious smooth formula makes for easy blending and long-wear.

#Tip 3 Use a eye primer so that your eye look doesn’t budge.

Plunge into deep hydration and reflective shine on the go with my travel-size, High Dive Moisture cream. Sunflower seed extract conditions the hair shaft and locks in moisture, while vitamin E helps to prevent damage. This hair cream is formulated to smooth and seal the hair, add moisture and drown out frizz.

#Tip 4 Can be used as a leave -in conditioner

Reason number 3 of why I wanted this box…it was the cooling coconut water that I actually wanted… I’m use to not getting the things I want in beauty boxes along time ago lol, so I’ll settle for this. The SmashBox Limited Edition Photo Finishe Primer Water is a 3-in-1 primer, setting spray hydrates, preps and refreshes the skin. The formula is infused with electrolytes, giving the skin, makeup and mood a boost. Skin mist was co-created by YT beauty guru Nicol Concilio.

#Tip 5 You can use as a primer or skin refresher

Sol De Janeiro Ipanema Sunset Glow Oil enhance the skin’s natural glow with the Ipanema Sunset Glow Oil. This dry , non-sticky formula allows you to experience effortless radiance from sunrise to sunset, like the Brazilian babe that you are.

#Tip 6 Apply before heading out for a beautiful all over glow

First time trying the popular brand of Lorac…received the Lorac Pro Liquid Lipstick in Berry Red. The shade is growing on me slowly… great shade for the fall/winter looks. It goes on smoothly and has very high pigmentation of a lipstick. Creamy and lightweight. The only issue I have is that when it’s dry it feels sticky and dry.

#Tip Use tip of applicator to line and define lips then fill in

This Luxie 732 Airbrush Foundation Brush is the bomb πŸ’£. I recently used this brush and I have to admit that this the best brush that I have ever used. Created a flawless look. The luxie brush is from the ProTools collection. The handle is expertly designed with synthetic hair allows you to easily buff foundation.

#Tip 8 use circular motions to create that airbrush effect.

Juice Beauty Stem Cellular Anti-Wrinkle Booster Serum is an ageless, ultra-light serum is power packed with a blend of stem cells infused into a vitamin C and resveratrol-rich grape seed formula. Wrinkles starts to diminish, and your skin’s tone, texture is enhanced.

#Tip 9 Use before primer for a flawless makeup application

Alamar Cosmetics Ojitos Brush Set is made with 100% synthetic fibers, these brushes are extremely soft, durable and essential to your growing brush collection. Flat painter brush effortlessly applies color onto your life’s, fluffy blender brush seamlessly blends colors together. Flat tight liner is perfect for the define line eye.

#Tip 10 use with the SmashBox primer water for extra pop to your shimmery eyeshadow

This cute retro headband from Vintage Cosmetic Company is just what us girls need to look and feel pretty. It’s stretchy, vintage -inspired headband.

***BONUS ADDITION***

Received this cute tote bag…that I can use to put all my goodies in. It does feels a bit on the cheap side that it will tear pretty fast.

I must admit this box is bomb…even though I didn’t receive the products that I wanted it’s still a pretty damn good start for BoxyLuxe debut. Definitely will be using these products and come back with a full review of each product. If you received BoxyLuxe which products are your favorite and not favorite… what are your thoughts on BoxyLuxe?

  1. Definitely loving the Tarte Park Ave Palette, the Luxie foundation brush, and the Girlactik Duo. You should give the Girlactik a whirl, it creates a blinding highlight that is super flattering. I tapped a little on the inner corners of my eyes and cupid’s bow as well and it looked nice.
