Hey sugars! I missed July's BoxyCharm (eek, don't hate me!) but I'm back with August's and let me say - it's pretty damn awesome!

What's BoxyCharm, you ask? BoxyCharm is a beauty subscription that comes to your doorstep every month with 4-5 full size luxury items for $21 a month. While that might sound a little more expensive than other subscription services, consider that you're getting guaranteed four full size products every month while compared to Ipsy where it's only $10 but they're usually smaller samples. The promise of full sized products alone totally got me hooked on it!

Coastal Scents Revealed 3 Palette ($39.95 - on sale right now for $19.95) - HOW. AMAZING. IS. THIS. PALETTE!? This palette comes with 20 all-new, super pigmented and smooth shadows that are perfect for fall. I mean, just look at them, all jewel-toned and pretty. I was pretty impressed with the pigmentation from this palette as well. Little fall-out from the mattes and those metallics are just insane.
Basically, I used all the red-tones on my eyeballs for this look. SA - WOON!

MicaBeauty Gel Eyeliner ($35) - The good news? This liner is amazeballs! Super slick, dries matte and is the blackest of blacks. Bad news? For $35, you can probably find cheaper. I'm just being honest. Granted for the ladies and gents that got this in their BoxyCharm, it's a total steal and holy grail-status and high-fives all around to us but as amazing as it is, I'm sure you could find something that works just as well for cheap. 

Seta Eyeliner Brush ($16) - A gel liner and a brush to go with it in the same box? Oh, BoxyCharm, you spoil us! While I've only used this brush with the MicaBeauty one above, I have to say it applied it like a dream. Pretty precise and smooth. I'm pretty stoked to add this brush to my collection!

So Susan Statement Skin ($20) - Stop reading this review (but come back afterward!) and go order this highlighter right meow. Swoon, swoon, swooooon! While I'm not familiar with the brand "So Susan" if this highlighter is any indication of the quality of these products, you bet I'll buying the whole collection! This highlighter crayon is super smooth to go on and has a really pretty, light champagne glow to it. I think this might be my new fave highlighter.

Nios Shield Leave-In Conditioner ($26) - Lastly, we have the only "fail" in the entire box and that's just because I personally am not a fan of leave-in conditioners. Heck, I just found a conditioner I like (and likes me back - it's mutual!) so I'm a little weary of leave-in conditioners right now. That being said, it smells wonderful. Let me know what you guys think!
