Boxy Charm July 2016

Boxy Charm July 2016

As always I’m impressed by boxy charm. What did I do with my life before the subscription box again.?? 

Unfortunately one of the eyeshadows broke along the way so it’s not pictured, but all of this is gorgeous, and I’m loving the lip gloss color more than anything. A bit different from my usual tastes but it’s gorgeous.!!

Also I have to apologize for being absent on here this past month. I had surgery on my ears almost 6 weeks ago which has been pretty rough recovery-wise, but I’m finally feeling a bit more myself, and I’m working on some pretty big things beauty-wise. More to come on that in the following months!! 

Sephora Haul


I got a little carried away, but I’m really excited about this haul for a few reasons.

I’m planning to try out both of the Becca foundations for a while then do a post on which I prefer.

I finally got a Becca poured skin perfector.

My favorite lip gloss brand, Buxom came out with a liquid Lippie.

AND I can’t wait to review this Dr Jart sleeping mask.

I’m actually excited about all of it.

I can’t handle the excitement, guys.

Boxycharm April 

  
I’m always wondering how I ever made it through life without boxycharm. I feel like a little kid around the middle of the month waiting on my box to come in.!! 

This month was #BoxyChanceOfCharms and included an eyelash primer, a loose eyeshadow in SUCH a pretty color, a daily lip nourisher, an Ofra liquid lipstick in “Pasadena,” and a hand cream that smells AMAZING. I have yet to recieve anything that I haven’t loved, and this is my favorite way to try new things that I’ve never heard of and probably wouldn’t have tried otherwise. 

Boxycharm you never let me down. Keep doing what you’re doing. 

Hard Candy Velvet Mousse Lippies

  I picked these up because the packaging is adorable, and I thought the girls would like the containers. They have little mirrors inside. Hard Candy has always been a bit a bit of a kid brand to me but the sleek design of these Lippies is a big step up for them in my opinion.
  
Pictured: Dahlia, Dafodil, and Sweet Pea. Also pictured vertically Dose Of Colors in Mood because I realized i had a perfect dupe.

These lippies are super pigmented, go on smooth, feel really comfy on, and they smell really good. For 6$ at Walmart these are a steal and I think this brand is going a really good direction. I’m actually exited to try more of their new stuff. They do dry pretty matte, but aren’t drying which is fine with me and to be expected with a mouse style Lippie. Over all in really impressed.!

  

Review: Buxom Full on Lip Glosses.

Okay so first of all I love this stuff. I bought my first tube of it back in July in the shade dolly, and it’s by far my favorite plumping lip gloss.  

 My little buxom collection so far. Find these babies Here, and Here.

From left to right it’s the lip polishes in Sophia and Dolly, and Lip Cream in Kir Royale.

I got the minis in a point reward thing from Sephora recently along with a buxom eyeliner and a mascara. Everything ive tried from this brand so far has been great but these plumping lip glosses are the best.

There’s two kinds, the lip polish and the lip cream, the only real difference is that the polish has shimmer. 

I adore plumping glosses like these because they feel so fresh on my lips and I love products with a good tingling feeling. Some plumping glosses burn like hell and those are not the ones I like. It’s so hard to find ones that are not uncomfortable. This brand is right on par with my other favorite which is from Dior.

    

Excuse my lack of eyebrows in the first picture. Isn’t it amazing what a different eyebrows make.?? Anyway this is the Sophia full on lip polish. It has such a perfect amount of pigment in my opinion, and is just great for days that I’m going for a more natural look, or to layer. 

The formula is not sticky, and it’s so comfortable on the lips, plus the shine is to die for. I wore this gloss for a night out Saturday, and the tingling/plumping effect lasted over two hours and even then the gloss was still visible. As for plumping I have really thin lips, I’d like to think this helps a bit, it feels like it, but I can’t be positive.

  

I swear I’m usually not a fan of lip glosses but I adore this stuff.
