Cost: $21/month
Ships To: Continental United States. BOXYCHARM does not ship to APO and FPO addresses.

Yay!  My July 2014 BOXYCHARM is here!  This is only my second month with them, but it’s already becoming one of my favorite boxes.

If you aren’t familiar, BOXYCHARM is a beauty box subscription that surprises you each month with the best beauty products from popular and chic brands. It’s $21/month and includes full size and luxury size beauty samples from their team’s preferred well-known brands.

The Box

BOXYCHARM ships via DHL Global Mail and took 5 days to arrive.  Like with most packages that ship via DHL this one didn’t update for days and then was all of a sudden out for delivery.

First Look

I totally knew everything that was in this month’s box, but I wasn’t sure about the shades I would be receiving or any of that.  Plus, opening up everything is way better than just seeing pictures.

The Information Card

The July 2014 BOXYCHARM theme was “America the Beautiful” and includes the the following gorgeous goodies:

~Appeal Cosmetics Luxurious Lipstick (Mock-Up) ($22):  I feared I was going to get the hot pink one I have seen in a few other boxes, but I was quite pleased with this much more muted shade.  Pleased for my sister-in-law that is because she gets all my lipsticks!

~pur~lisse pur~protect spf 30 ($55): The pur~lisse strikes again!  LOL!  I swear I like this stuff, but it’s just everywhere these past few months.  I am stocked up for ages.

~Lauren B Beauty Nail Polish (Rodeo Drive) ($18): Totally totally love this color.  It’s not your typical red which I like.  It’s deeper.  I have tried a few Lauren B polishes in GLOSSYBOX (I think) and have always been quite happy.  They go on nicely and their formula seems very consistent between colors.

~Bellapierre Lip Liner (Nude) ($18): Not a huge lip liner fan.  But the color is nice and if I don’t end up passing this along to my sister-in-law, I will try this out as a lip crayon mixed with some gloss and see how it goes.

~Bellapierre Shimmer Powder (Harmony) ($14.99): Totally love!   I have tried this in the past and have always been pleased with the results.  It’s mineral makeup and gives your lids a great shimmer.  I will caution you against using too much like I always too.  Like they say, it’s easier to add more but not as easy to take it away.

Bellapierre Shimmer Powder

All totaled I came up with a value of $127.99 for the July 2014 BOXYCHARM box! Considering that the box is only $21/month, this is an incredible value. Now I don’t love it quite as much as I loved the June box (I mean how could I – that box was so amazing), but I am very happy with it and am already looking forward to next month. I am so keeping this subscription!

  1. I got the last 2 boxes, am getting this one, but I’m just not feeling July!!!! I am planning on canceling for now and restarting if I like August. But that’s only because I personally already have the purlisse and I’m kinda meh on bellapierre.

    1. Jennifer

      I would be sad if August was more like June!

      HOW DIFFICULT HAS IT BEEN FOR OTHER PEOPLE TO ESTABLISH COMMUNICATION WITH BOXYCHARM VIA EMAIL?? My box (handed to me personally by the mailman) arrived with a broken piece of tape and was MISSING THE PUR-LISSE! I wrote Boxycharm on Wednesday right when I got it and I have yet to hear back from them….what are you other people doing to contact them?? So far, very undesirable experience this month….(I understand that DHL’s issue got out of their hands, but Customer Service is below poor)

    Join the lip liner/crayon family. LOL I used my Urban Decay liner that came in a box and then layered some UD Perversion over it 😉 It looked awesome last night but I didn’t want to carry those into the concert so I just took my Dr Pepper chapstick and it kept my lips looking good. So many people commented on it. Easy and fun.
    I can’t wait to see a picture of all your PurLisse. You could load an apothecary jar full of them I’m sure.

      I really need to try this magic dr. pepper chapstick. Sounds like a trip to Target is in order.

      1. Jenny

        OMG it is my most favorite flavor. You can find it with the lip smackers products. I never have one too far and tend to use it with another sample that I’ve gotten. LOL I just can’t leave them home.

    Mine finally arrived! I ended up with the Hot Pink lipstick. I will NEVER will be able to pull that off. Bummer. I was happy with the rest though. Can’t wait for August.

    1. Jennifer

      That is such a bold color!

    Are there any Boxycharm coupon codes?

      I don’t think I have ever seen one.
