This month I got…
From ModelCo, Bronze Shimmer. This is an incredibly soft and very pigmented bronzer. It feels and looks amazing and since I'm on the pale side I need very little to get a natural bronzed look. There is a shimmer in this product but it's more apparent in the compact and not so noticable on the face, which is a big plus for me. Full size.
From Lauren B. Beauty, Nail Polish. I got the shade #ImJuicing which is a lime green cream. I'm indifferent on the shade, and it's likely not one I'd buy for myself, but it's on point for Summer. It took a full three coats for full and mostly even opacity. The bottle is generously sized and the formula painted on easily. There was another shade floating around that matched the lipstick in my box, but then you got a purple lipstick which I never would have worn. I'd rather have the wearable lipstick and use this lime polish for some nail art. Full size.
From The Lip Bar, Lipstick. Can I just tell you how obsessed I am with this packaging? It's got that wrought iron window pane, edgy, stained glass look to it (without the stain in the glass, but you know what I mean). The shade I got in this box is in Kiss Me and it's a beautiful and pigmented hot coral shade. In a different sub box I received the shade Crimson Wonderland so I have the start of an awesome collection going on over here! Full size.
From Bodyography, Essential Brow Trio. While I tend to stay away from powder products for my brows (my brows are more than half gone so I tend to use a waterproof/water resistant pencil or gel) the quality in the formula was nice and I did find it easy to apply. This could also be used for eye shadows as a deep, neutral trio. Full size.
From Bodyography, Brow Brush. It was wonderful to see a brush in this box that coordinates with another included product. The brush end is firm enough for a good line but soft enough to fill in the brows with product naturally. Full size.

This box was such a hit for me! ALL FIVE ITEMS ARE FULL SIZED for only $21.00 and the retail on what was sent is $98.00! While I probably won't get a ton of use out of the brow trio or nail polish they can easily be gifted and the other products alone retail at almost triple of what the cost of this box is out of pocket. I can't wait to see what's in store for Boxycharm in June!
