Best of the Boxes June 2017

I subscribe to Ipsy, Birchbox, Boxycharm, and Walmart beauty subscriptions. I just subscribed to Allure and should get my first box any day now. Each month I like to share what I consider the best samples I received that month. Some months are better than others. Read on to see what I loved this month.


Birchbox June 2017 had a few nice samples that I just haven’t had time to try. The one that I did try made it to the Best of the Boxes. Birchbox is also $10 per month.

Mellow Cosmetics Liquid Lip Paint in Tehran – The perfect canvas for this velvety lip paint? Your lips, of course. The ultracreamy liquid lipstick provides high-pigmented color that feels light and comfortable. The vegan and cruelty-free formula applies wet but settles to a non-drying matte finish, which stays in place for a smooth, vibrant pucker that lasts for hours. This is a soft, nude brown shade that is a My Lips But Better shade. I like the shade and the formula.


Ipsy June 2017 was decent this month. It is $10 per month and includes a cute little bag with the samples. 2 of the samples this month made Best of the Boxes.

theBalm Cosmetics Balm Springs Blush – Aside from making us lol with its cheeky name (which has us dreaming of a desert vacay), we’re obsessed with this crazy beautiful, rosy blush shade that looks amazing on all skin tones. It’s SO long-wearing that it literally lasted from brunch to blind date without fading. (That’s like, 12 hours if you’re counting.) I like the Balm and was happy to get to try this blush. It is a great shade and looks so nice on the skin.

Hey Honey Uncover Detoxifying Mud Mask – Detoxifying. Stimulating. Clarifying. Refining. Soothing. Cleansing. Clearly when it comes to multitasking, this sweet-smelling mask goes above and beyond. It’s made with an amazing cocktail of Dead Sea black mud, honeysuckle, aloe, and Propolis ( We googled it so you don’t have to: “Propolis: an exotic compound produced by bees thought to fight infections, heal wounds, and more.) Acne-causing bacteria? Bye. This mask clears away ALL the junk, leaving your skin clean, gorgeous, and glowy AF. This month I found out that Ipsy has a sample choice program and I choose this sample. I have used Hey Honey products in the past and have liked them a lot. And I love masks in general!



Finally, Boxycharm June 2017 was awesome as usual. I was super excited by it this month and the 2 items I am including are ones that I totally love. They are my favorite items from my boxes this month. Boxycharm is $20 per month but you can save a little bit by prepaying 3, 6, or 12 months.

3 Sheet Masks by Biobelle Cosmetics – Biobelle’s sheet masks give your skin an instant boost, while deeply hydrating and evening your skin tone, revealing gorgeous, glowing skin! Biobelle’s Award-winning TENCEL ® fiber adheres perfectly and delivers antioxidants to your skin faster and deeper. So far I have only tried the #BeautySecret mask but it made my skin look visibly better.

Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick by Ofra Cosmetics in Santa Ana – OFRA Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick is a one-step full lip color that does not feather. This vibrant color will give you a vivacious new look. It is creamy and soft in texture, moisturizing the lips and creating a long lasting lipstick effect. No need to use lip liner, this liquid lipstick gives a beautiful edge to your lip look!  I was afraid that this color was a bit too purple for me but I was SO wrong. I love everything about this lipstick. The bright color is perfect for summer and the formula is super long lasting. Thank you Boxycharm!

It looks like June was about masks and lipsticks. That is no big surprise since I love masks and lipsticks! I was happy with all my subscription boxes.bags this month.
