It’s time for an unboxing and it’s dangerous to go it alone… so let’s do this thing TOGETHER!

The BOOM! BOX by Espionage Cosmetics is a bi-monthly, nerdy subscription box. It features items such as nerd makeup, NailedIt! Nail Wraps, wearables and even AMAZING art inspired by pop-culture. Each box retails for $30 (+ shipping) but the goodies inside the box total $65+. This is the FIFTH EC BOOM! BOX to debut and is the first one that I’ve actually gotten my act together and filmed an unboxing video… because reasons. I must say, out of all the BBs that have come out – this one is by far my favorite! 

I love EVERYTHING in this box, and there’s not a single thing that I was disappointed in. HOORAY!


WARNING: IF YOU HAVE NOT RECEIVED YOUR BOOM!BOX YET AND WANT TO AVOID SPOILERS, DO NOT LOOK ANY FURTHER.

*WHAT’S IN THE BOX:

August 2016 “Power-Up” Box Info Card: Each month, the BB includes an info card — because they are cool like that. I generally put the info card to the side so I am genuinely surprised at the contents in the box. It works like a charm!

Retro Gaming Stickers: You Died of Dysentery, HP bar, and GAME OVER. Fun fact: I friggin love stickers, so these babies are right up my nerdy alley and will be going on my notebooks and cane soon!

Golden Relic Necklace by Geek Star Costuming **BB Exclusive: I am a HUGE fan of GSC and, in fact, have four of her awesome necklaces already. This gem will be a happy addition and will be great for those days when I just want to casually dress up as Link or something.

Floppy Disk Repurposed Notepad: This item made me actually LOL. It also gave me some massive nostalgia for my family’s first home computer. Total win in my book – and you may see it in an upcoming video or picture. #spoilers

Espionage Cosmetics Everything Shadow in “1Up”: New Everything Shadow is New! 1Up is a brilliant, blue-based green with shimmer.

Espionage Cosmetics Pressed Powders in “Console” and “Pixel”These are the BRAND NEW pressed powders from Espionage Cosmetics. The formulation is amazing! They are buttery and smooth. Console is a matte sky-blue and it is amazing. It’s really hard to make a matte formula buttery, and this matte is AMAZEBALLS. Out of the two, Console is my favorite. I really hope they release more colors RIGHT THIS NOW! Pixel, on the otherhand, is a frosty, vibrant pink-magenta. The formulation is very smooth and is quite buildable, coverage-wise. Pixel is the lighter, little sister to the loose Everything Shadow in Sakura

I took the liberty of swatching a few other Everything Shadows from Espionage Cosmetics, that way you can compare the colors together.

Please pardon the swatches on my hand – that’s after me swatching the new shadows over an hour before I took this photo, without primer.
