May 2015 Boxycharm

Boy!  It has felt like Christmas this past week with subscriptions coming in my mailbox!!! Boxycharm usually comes later in the month so I was shocked at how early it arrived. There were a few things I was excited about receiving so let’s see everything else that came in the box this month.   The theme this month was “Bold & Beautiful.”

Be bold.  Be bright.  Be beautiful.  Charmers, this May, go beyond your comfort zone and boldly dare to be your own kind of beautiful.

  • ModelCO Bronze Shimmer Bronzing Powder- Full Size = $22

Brighten and illuminate your complexion with ModelCo’s light-reflecting, pressed bronzing powder; perfect for creating a warm tan with a hint of shimmer.

I just received a shimmer bronzer from Pixi in my Ipsy bag ( May 2015 ipsy ), but I’m excited that this is full size! I usually use a matte bronzer simply for contouring, but this would be great to add a natural glow to my skin.

  • Lauren B. Beauty Nail Polish- Full Size=$18

This color is stunning!  I received the shade “Sunset Tower” which is unlike anything else I own.  It is a gorgeous soft peach shade that is so feminine.

Lauren B. Beauty’s advanced, quick-drying nail enamels deliver a chip-resistant, long-lasting, mirror-like finish.  Each formula is eco and vegan-friendly.

I love that this is 5 free- No formaldehyde, DBP, toluene, formaldehyde resin or camphor and it is cruelty free.

Definitely one of my favorite things in this box!

  • Bodyography Essential Brow Trio- Full size=$19

Define and perfect your browns with the Essential Brow Trio for bold and beautiful brows you’ve always wanted.  This handy compact features three matte brow powders flattering for all hair colors.

This comes with an ashy light, mid-tone and deep brown which is perfect for mixing to create your perfect shade.  I can’t wait to try this out and see how it works.  I typically rotate between using brow gel, powder and a pencil so this is perfect for me.


  • Bodyography Brow Brush- Full Size= $19

You can’t receive a brow powder without receiving a brush too right?  Boxycharm is so awesome when it comes to things like this!  They definitely plan well.

Ideal for separating lashes, filling in , and taming brows.  Separate clumpy lashes with the mascara wand on one end and shape and groom brows with the angled brow brush on the other end.

The spooley end is very sturdy while the angled brush is a little cheap feeling.  I’ll test it out and see how it performs.  I don’t feel that this is worth $19, but I am grateful to have received it.


  • The Lip Bar Lipstick- Full Size= $20

Give your lips a splash of color with these bold hues from The Lip Bar.  Handcrafted with a unique blend of natural ingredients such as Vitamin E, shea butter, and avocado oil, these lipsticks are designed to moisturize, soften, and amplify lips while setting you apart.

I saw the creators of The Lip Bar on Shark Tank (a guilty obsession of mine), but they failed to strike a deal with any of the Sharks.  In case you don’t know, Shark Tank is an American reality show where entrepreneurs look for an investor to invest in their company.

Anyways…they failed to spark any interest in their company from the investor and walked away without any offers.

But I think they will do absolutely fine on their own!

I received the shade “Purple Rain” which is, of course, purple.  Thankfully, it’s not a shocking bold purple.  I think it will be very wearable and can definitely be mixed with another product to make your own custom color.

The packaging is a little bulky and cheap feeling, but the design is cute and I love the little bag it came in.  That definitely makes it feel more high-end.

All in all, I love this month’s box.  I love how many makeup products were included and I think they are all perfect for Spring!

I also love that all five products were full size this month!  That hasn’t happened in a while!
