Coastal Scents Revealed 3 Palette ($19.95)

And my set is complete.  Thanks to Boxycharm, I have all three Coastal Scents Revealed palettes in my ever-growing palette collection!  This palette has a beautiful variety of shades, much like its predecessors 1 & 2.  However this palette is not so obviously a "nude" or "rosey" theme.  It is its own kind of beautiful with warm and cool tones to suit every look and season.  Love it.

Mica Beauty Gel Eyeliner ($35)

I have a Mica eyeshadow in Earth which I love, so I am already a fan of their products!  But I have a beauty confession - I have not used a gel eyeliner in who knows how long.  My obsession with convenient and easy to use twist-up liners has overshadowed many other varieties.  I do fondly remember the versatility and precision that can be achieved with gel liners so I'm ready to dive right back into them with this beauty from Mica.  Now if only I had the right brush...

Seta Eyeliner Brush ($16)

Boxycharm reads my mind every time.  What's a gel eyeliner without the proper tool for application?  This eyeliner brush is by Seta, which is an unfamiliar brand to me but I love the color!  I enjoy my sleek silver-handled brushes but trying to find a particular one can be like finding a needle in a haystack.  This brush certainly won't get lost in the mix.  I look forward to seeing how this works in conjunction with the Mica eyeliner!

Nios Shield Leave-In Conditioner ($26)

This leave-in conditioner has Moroccan argan oil to help control frizz and provide shine.  The convenient pump is perfect for travel and much better than a squeeze tube that can leak.  The product itself is a thin consistency and has a nice light scent.  I even rubbed some of the product over the back of my hand and it left absolutely no residue or stickiness behind.  Aside from the visual benefits, this leave-in conditioner also has SPF to protect your scalp!

So Susan Statement Skin in Starlight ($20)

Even though this wasn't one of the original "spoilers" this month, I have to say this is the item I was most excited to see!  I have been dying to try products by So Susan and this item is unlike anything I have in my collection.  I've tried sample highlighter sticks in the past and they felt greasy and provided unnatural color.  This highlighting crayon gives a beautiful luminous glow that blends perfectly with just a simple tap of your fingers.  It isn't greasy and has a pearlescent color that will work on a variety of skintones.  You can use it for targeted areas or mix it in with your foundation for an all over glow.  It's perfect to throw in your makeup bag too!

I think Boxycharm boxes have been getting better and better.  I'm glad to see some familiar brands in this box but even more thrilled with the new items I was introduce to.  What do you think of this month's box?
