Bold & Beautiful Boxycharm - May 2015

I think the warmer months are my favorite time of year for beauty subscription boxes.  It is the time for bronzers, fun colors, and products that enhance our natural glow.  Boxycharm has yet to disappoint with their selection of products!  Here's a look at this month's Bold & Beautiful Boxycharm including my first impressions!

ModelCo Bronze Shimmer ($22)

Did someone say natural glow?  This bronzer will be perfect for the coming months.  I have been delving into shimmery face products that provide a flattering sheen and this product is gorgeous!  This bronzer is can work on its own or complimenting matte products.  If you find it is too shimmery for your face, try it on your eyes!

First impression - This bronzer appears more "glittery" than it actually applies so don't let it scare you off.  It actually provides a gorgeous glow that is not too shimmery - this coming from someone with oily skin, and I love it!  It looks gorgeous as an eyeshadow and compliments my matte bronzer beautifully.

The Lip Bar Lipstick in Purple Rain ($20)

When I saw these vibrant shades were going to be featured in this month's box I anticipated a color that would not necessarily be an "everyday" shade.  For me personally, this will be pretty fun for Halloween time so I'm glad I got this one!  I can't say I'll be sporting it while running errands (I wear light pinks/nudes mostly) but I like finding unique products through Boxycharm, and this is definitely one of them!

First impression - Purple Rain, although not my choice for an everyday shade, actually applies with more of a pink tone than a vibrant purple as it appears. This lipstick is extremely creamy and vibrant.  It has a slight sheen and glides on very easily.  I would love to try more neutral shades from this line for my everyday use!

Bodyography Essential Brow Trio ($19)

In all the time I have subscribed to beauty boxes I have never gotten a brow product (that I can remember).  I was thrilled to see this included in May's Boxycharm!  I'm fairly minimal when it comes to filling in my brows but a powder is my product of choice.  A brow trio is a great product to cater to more people.

First impression - This works great as a brow powder.  I tried the darker shades as eyeshadow and they didn't blend as well as I would have hoped.  The color really sticks where it is placed, which is perfect for its main intention, a brow powder!  I love the color selection, as my hair is dark, so this will get a ton of use.

Bodyography Brow Brush ($19)

Who doesn't love makeup brushes?  Especially when it can be used in conjunction with something included in your beauty subscription box.  I actually do not own a brush with a spoolie on it to comb my brows so this is a great tool to add to my collection.

First impression-  The angled side of this brush picks up plenty of product but is a bit thicker than I'd like for my brows.  (I currently use the It Brushes for Ulta liner brush for my brows.)  The spoolie end will most likely get more use for me in terms of brows.  I would more likely use the angled side just for liner.

Lauren B Beauty Nail Polish in Sunset Blvd. ($18)

I have never tried this nail polish brand before.  I have enjoyed the other polishes Boxycharm has included in past boxes so I'm really excited to try this one.  This color is perfect for spring and summer and I don't have one exactly like it.  Love that!

First impression- This nail polish applies beautifully in two coats and dries really fast!  High shine and vivid color, it's gorgeous!  I definitely want to try more colors from this brand.  I also love the style/shape of the bottle, I find these bottles are easy to store and I can fit more on my shelf ;).

Total Value: $98

I love this box.  It was a great way to kick off the warmer months!  I can't wait what else Boxycharm has in store.  Are you subscribed?  What colors did you get in your Boxycharm?
