Monroe Misfit Makeup | Beauty Blog: BOXYCHARM Wild Flower September Box

I took a break over the Summer after a few dismal BoxyCharm’s. As with everything makeup related it is always better in the Fall. This month thebox theme is Wild Flower. If you don’t know already BOXYCHARM is $21 mo. and gives you 4-5 full size beauty products worth over $100. Even when I don’t love a box there is always something in here that makes it worth the value. Here is what’s in store for September!

Pretty Vulgar Nightingale Smokey Eyeshadow Palette ($35)
Made up of 12 highly pigmented shades, the Nightingale palette is sure to help you create your best looks. The matte, shimmer, and satin shades are soft in texture, and luxurious in formula. How cute is this palette? I have been super impressed with all of the Pretty Vulgar products I have tried so far and this one is no exception. I love that this isn’t another all warm eyeshadow palette! Finally something cool toned!

Laura Geller Baked Blush n Brighten ($28)
Add a gorgeous, glowy flush to your cheeks with this baked blush. Stunning swirls of liquid pigments are baked in for a smooth, long-wearing formula. Laura Geller’s baked blush and highlighters are some of my favorite face products. I already bought this blush myself, but I am not mad to have a second! It is the most gorgeous, face brightening berry pink with a soft luster.

Alamar Cosmetics Ojitos Brush Set ($18)
You can always count on Boxy to give good brushes. These 100% synthetic brushes are great. The flat painter brush is perfect for cream products, while the blender is fluffy and soft and the liner brush effortlessly glides and smudges gel liners. The green handles are cool change up from the usual black and pink.

LORAC Liquid Lipstick ($19)
Although I would have preferred something hydrating and glossy and not another tired matte liquid lipstick. I know they have to get one in there for the ‘gram. This one from LORAC I don’t hate. It’s smooth, covers evenly, and isn’t as drying as some others. Will I ever choose to wear a dry matte liquid lip over my Urban Decay VICE lipsticks? Hell no, but the color Deep Burgundy is amazing!

Butter London Stroke of Wow Roll On Liner ($19)
Create precise, ultra-fine winged liner looks with this innovative liquid liner. The ergonomic handle gives you insane control while creating your liner looks. The roll-on applicator does all the work with a smudge-proof black pigment that stays in place. I was worried this was going to be like the fail Roller ball liner like Benefit’s, but it is a lot better. The tip has a roller ball that “rolls” across to create your eyeliner. It works fairly well, but I don’t understand the novelty of these liners. You barely get to roll the liner before space runs out. I would rather just do it manually.

Finally a box I love! After some real losers this Summer I was about to give up on Boxycharm. Once they switched to letting a group of never heard of “influencers” pick their monthly products the box pretty much tanked. It was all the same old ugly mauve brown matte lip, warm shimmery eye shadows, and highlighter. That only looks good one type of person for one type of look. Where is your diversity Boxcharm? Just no. Regular women who wear makeup in their daily lives out of the house don’t want to wear ugly ass edited instagram makeup, we want something fresh and beautiful! End rant 🙂 This box while still having to get in the matte lipstick at least gives us something different. Plus, two well-known brands. I’m back on the Boxycharm wagon!
