October 2016 BOXYCHARM Unboxing!

I was so excited to come home from work to see this beauty waiting in my mailbox! I get soo excited for my BOXYCHARM every month. I was especially excited for this month because of the amazing sneak peeks I had seen. I have noticed that BOXYCHARM has been throwing in some variations between the boxes, so even though you get to see some sneak peeks, you still get to be surprised when you get yours!
So, enough with all the talk, let's get to the unboxing!

The gorgeous box

I look forward to finding out the themes for each month, and I think this month's theme is so freakin' cute!
EVERYONE on YouTube loves Luxie brushes, and I am so excited to be getting 3 in one box! This is a 3 pack of blending brushes, and they not only feel amazing, but they look so beautiful! These are valued at $36.00 (which is already way over the cost of the box which is $21.00/month)
Please ignore the chipped nails (like I said, I just got off work, so they look a little rough). This is the Briogeo Blow Dry Perfection Heat Protectant. This is valued at $24.00 and it smells amazing! I actually tried it out tonight and my hair feels amazing!

This is the gorgeous IBY Beauty 'Threes Company' Trio Eye Shadow. This palette is beautiful and the colors swatched beautifully (which I stupidly forgot to photograph, silly me). The colors are very buttery and I can tell these would blend beautifully. But, boxy has been sending a lot of neutral shadows lately, and on top of all of the neutral shadows I already have, I think I will be passing this on as a gift. This is valued at $19.00.

Ah, the one thing I was (secretly) hoping I would not get- The Temptu Shimmer Bronzer. I am so intimidated by using a liquid bronzer because I have never used one! But, since I got it, I have decided I am going to try to conquer my fears and try to figure out liquid bronzer. This is valued at $29.50. 
AH, lastly, this little beauty. This is the Cargo BeachBlush. I think this is beautiful and can be very verstile! You could use the strips as eyeshadow, or used together as a blush or bronzer for an all-over glow! This is valued at $30.00

Okay, that is everything in the October 2016 box. The overall value of this box is around $140, which is INSANE to me. I will never understand how these beauty subscription boxes do this. It gives us such a great opportunity to try out high-end products for a fraction of the price! 
This is my 4th month of being subbed to BOXYCHARM and I would rate this one and the September box as my favorites so far! I linked the website at the top, so check out the BOXYCHARM website if you are interested in subscribing to this amazing beauty box! They always guarantee 4-5 full-size products and they are typically mid-range to high-end brands!
Anyways, thanks so much for visiting lovelies! Bye!

P.s. Here's the first sneak peek at the November box, I am so excited already!

October 2016 Target Beauty Box Unboxing!

My boyfriend's mother was so kind as to order a Target Beauty Box for me this month when she saw that they were in stock, so I figured I could take some time to sit down and unbox it for you guys! I get BOXYCHARM monthly, so I am very excited to be getting this box for the first time. I have also been thinking about subscribing to Ipsy and maybe getting my boyfriend a sub to the men's Birchbox. I would love some input or just to hear about some of your guys' experiences!

Now, onto the goodies...

This box looks promising

First things I grabbed-
- Jergens Wet Skin Moisturizer: This smells amazing and it feels very hydrating! 
-Wet n Wild ProLine Graphic Marker Eyeliner- Jetliner Black: I haven't had the chance to swatch this one yet, but I hear mainly all good things about this brand so I cannot wait to try this, I am always on the hunt for great liquid eyeliners!
-ChapStick 3 in 1 Tinted Lip Balm: This is in the shade Rose Petal, I typically am not a huge fan of tinted lip balms, but we shall see how this one goes!

-EDEN BodyWorks Peppermint Tea Tree Shampoo and Conditioner: These smell soooo amazing, I cannot wait to see how my hair feels after using these!
-Derma E Hydrating Day Creme with Hyaluronic Acid: This seems like it is a typical face cream, very smooth, creamy, and moisturizing, but I still can't wait to try it! 

-Laneige BB Cushion:I am intrigued by this product because at first I was not quite honestly sure what it was! You get three different shades and a puff, I do not know how much use you will be able to get out of this sample size, especially because I will only be able to use one of the shades, so I guess we will see!

I would love to give an update and follow-up on products I receive through my beauty subscription boxes; which like I said, right now all I get is BOXYCHARM and this month's Target Beauty Box. If there are any others I should check out, please let me know! Or, let me know if you would like to see more unboxings or a follow-up!
Thanks so much for visiting; bye lovelies!
