As an avid fan of beauty boxes, I kind of fell out of love with them over the last two months. The last Glossybox I purchased was about 12 months ago and Birchbox had faded into a distant memory. I have had a handful of the Latest In Beauty boxes, but my favourite was the last Glamour box that they made last Summer. Whilst reading my Glamour mag earlier this month, I spotted the new Latest In Beauty: The Glamour Beauty Edit and placed an order straight away. For just £16.95, the box was plentiful including the piece de resistance, the new Illamasqua Glamore nude lipstick.
The box itself is fab. White with a neon pink design, its a far cry from the usual plain black boxes and definitely stands out from the crowd. I also love the little finishing touches, like the lipstick kiss sticker holding the tissue paper together. Its the little things!
So, what’s inside I hear you cry. Let me tell you! Nine whole products just waiting to be pounced on, and for the first time ever, I can honestly say that I will use every one.
I love a good wash off bronzer and the Rimmel Sun Shimmer Instant Tan BB Perfector will be perfect for a golden glow when I’m away on my long haul trips. I’ll also keep the Velvotan Tanning Mit in my suitcase to use with the Rimmel. I don’t want any streaky bits and I cannot tan without a mitt! The Hawaiian Tropic Ultra Radiance Lotion SPF30 has arrived at just the right time. I’m running low on my favourite delicate bits sunblock and I think this will be a perfect replacement.
The make up that was featured in the Latest In Beauty Glamour Edit was the main reason why I purchased it, and of course because of the Illamasqua Glamore nude lipstick which retail for £18.50 on their own. I received Cherub which is a perfect nude for my naturally red lips. The Magnifibres Brush On False Lashes also intrigued me. I have heard so much about these brush on fibres that adhere to your lashes in between coats of mascara to lengthen then. I’ll definitely report back on this one.
I received the Crabtree & Evelyn in red. I’m really happy with this choice as I was eyeing up new red polishes last week. I can’t wait to try it out. I also got the Bourjois Cream Blush in 02 which is a lovely apricot colour blush. Bourjois call it Healthy Glow on their website, and the colour is a natural flush. I have a lot of time for Bourjois at the moment. The Toni & Guy Volume Plumping Whip has already been used and its a big thumbs up for me. My fine hair feels full of volume without feeling sticky and crispy. Finally, the DHC Deep cleansing Oil is back. I have received 2 of these in the past and was unsure, and I still am. I’m quite prone to milias, which is a build up of too much protein in the skin caused by oily products, so I try and steer clear. I’m going to give it another go though as people rave over it.
With a retail value of £86.15 and containing q full size Illamasqua lipstick worth £18.50 for only £16.95 including postage, I’m sure I don’t need to spell it out to you that its a brilliant box. You can treat yourself to one from the Latest In Beauty website.This post may contain PR samples that have been sent to me for consideration for review however all my opinions will be my own.
