Each box comes with an info card with a beautiful illustration on the front of the card and on the back of the card, the contents of the box and some of their prices. The theme for the month of June is “Island Gyal”. The beautiful illustration on the front of the info card is by VG Waymer.

ColourPop Lippie Stix-Dukes – Value $5.00

I have seen this brand all over Instagram and everyone raves about ColourPop. So, I was excited to try this lipstick in the color “Dukes”. Subscribers could have also received “Bossy” or “LBB”. I have slowly gotten used to the texture of a matte lip and this matte doesn’t disappoint. It’s not as dry on my lips as other matte lipsticks I own. The vitamin E, mango, avocado, and shea butter gives it that added moisture. I love this formula, it’s highly pigmented and is long lasting.

Mini Baked Face Blush- Strawberry Sorbet – Value $2.00

This powder-based blush gave my cheeks a flush of color. I am not one to wear pink blush but surprisingly it worked well and was flattering on my skin tone.

Here are the swatches, blush on top and lipstick on the bottom.

L.A. Summer Glow, 2 oz. – Value $26.50

This scented oil intends to strengthen my hair and hydrate my skin. It was lightweight in texture not too heavy, in my opinion, and has a citrusy, floral scent.

Potent-C Vitamin C + E Serum, 1 fl oz. – Value $52.00

This vitamin C + E serum has 20% vitamin C which states it delivers high protection from UV damage and vitamin E offers some protection against UVB rays. Also, it intends to lessen the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. I have used vitamin C serums before and it has aided in keeping my skin firm and supple.

Citrus Fusion Refresher Spray – Value $5?

This moisturizing spray for my hair and skin was intoxicating. I sprayed on my face and body for added moisture. The spray was cooling and refreshing. It intends to soothe my skin, which it did, along with detangle and add shine to my hair.

Enclosed was a little something extra, a black onyx. The black onyx represents, “A protection stone. Black Onyx absorbs & transforms energy to promote physical & emotional strength and stamina”.  And on the back of the card is a quote from Steph Schuler, “Notice who your energy increases & decreases around. That’s the Universe giving you hints on who you should stay with or stray from”.

VerdictWe Are Onyx Box has an estimated value of about $91, which is an incredible deal for a $25.00 box. This box is perfect for the season! I have a pop of long-lasting color for my lips, a sweet-smelling hair and body oil and a refreshing hair and body mist to cool me down during the hot summer months. This box has become a favorite and their products are a good mix of hair, body, skin, and some lifestyle items added, on occasion.
