Hey all you glam babes and beaus! Hope you’re having a wonderful day! Thanks for joining me for my August BoxyCharm unboxing! I’m so excited for this month and it’s theme! Glamping! How cute is that? If you checked out my last post on float trips then you know I am all the way here for that glamping life! So let’s dive right in shall we?
I received variation 2 of August’s box. There are several brands in here that I have never even heard of, making it that much more exciting to try out new things.
Too Faced | Born This Way Super Coverage Concealer
Conceal, contour, highlight, and retouch with this super perfecting, natural finish concealer/makeup hybrid. Full loaded pigments provide maximum coverage with an undetectable finish for a look so flawless they’ll think you were BORN THIS WAY.
This was a choice item for the August BoxyCharm and by the time I remembered it was choice day a lot of the lighter shades were already gone. I gambled on the color Golden Beige and I think it will be perfect for an exact match concealer. I have recently switched up my routine a little bit now that I’m required to wear a mask at work. I have put a lot less effort into my face makeup and more focus on my eyes and brows. So I feel like this product and color will fit nicely in with my new work day style.
Violet Voss | Essentials 2 Palette
These 10 eyeshadow pans of pure bliss provide all the everday hues you need to create your go-to soft glam as well as vivid pops of color to liven up your look.
Clarins | Velvet Lip Perfector

Minetan Body Skin | Hydra Glow Sleep Serum
Greet the day with glowing skin. Hydra Glow Sleep Serum instantly absorbs with a triple-action hyaluronic acid formula delivering time released multi-depth hydration for fully hydrated skin that glows. Wake up looking fabulous and greet the day with glowing skin.
Realher | Definer Brow Pencil
This long-lasting, micro-tip pencil allows you to create individual-like hairs for a subtle or bold brow look. Its creamy wax-based formulation glides beautifully and naturally on skin. This waterproof pencil is stress-free to help you through any challenges you face in life.
August BoxyCharm First Impressions
When I first got a good look at what was in the August BoxyCharm, I have to admit there were a few brands in there that I didn’t even recognize. Which to me, is pretty exciting. One of the best things about this subscription box is being able to try new items and new brands that are outside your comfort zone or, like in this case, you’ve never even heard of before.
Right away I knew I was going to love the Too Faced Born This Way concealer because I have used the foundation in the past and really enjoyed it. Also, the Violet Voss palette I knew was going to be a win because I have a few other palettes from this brand and they are beautiful. Not just the color scheme, but the formulation as well. The blendability, pigment, and beauty is all right there.
Although I have heard of Clarins, I have never tried any of their products. And the other two brands, who is she? Never heard of her.
Now I’ve had this box for about a week now and I have been able to play around with a few of the products. And they do not disappoint. The palette, like I mentioned, is everything I knew it would be. The concealer, same way. It’s perfect for quick, on the go days for me since it is so close to my skin tone. It allows me to skip foundation and just go go go! I also tried the brow pencil. I was concerned at first because there is no shade name, no real indication what to expect, you just have to put it on and hope it’s a good fit. And in this case it was! A nice, cool toned brown that works perfect with my hair color and skin tone. Another for sure win.
The only product I’m not sure I’ll use too often is the lip perfector. Solely based on the color I was sent. But that doesn’t mean it’s a bad product. Just one I’m not going to frequently reach for.
Let me know down in the comments what y’all thought about your August BoxyCharm. Did you love it? Hate it? Indifferent? Let’s talk makeup in the comments!
Life is hectic. No matter what you do. For me, well, I’m a mom of two young boys living in the countryside, working a full-time job, married to my best friend, and might be slightly makeup obsessed. I’m here to share my experiences, my fears, my dreams, and what little tips and tricks I’ve picked up along the way.
