Ok, bad blogger time as I’ve taken far too long to write this one – in my defence, I have been trying to plan a wedding… so a tad busy.. but still. No excuse really, just a bit slow. Sorry. But better late than never – this is a look at the latest Glamour Beauty Edit from Latest in Beauty. The beauty box that’s a collaboration between Glamour Magazing beauty editors and Latest in Beauty. Historically (I think this is either the third or fourth of these boxes) the contents have been pretty darn impressive… so read on to see what you think of the latest offering.
With a whopping nine products, this is a beauty box with a difference – the products aren’t as much of a suprirse as you order the box pretty much knowing what you’re getting. As opposed to boxes like Birchbox or Glossy box where the contents offered for each customer vary a little. So it lacks the surprise factor, but then you’re never going to feel let down as you know what you’re getting. The contents of this box are:
Illamasqua Glamore Lipstick – the new nude shades. A very wearable nude pink shade – very nice, but definitely one to only wear on ‘good lip day’s when lips aren’t dehydrated.
Sunshimmer BB Cream – Not one I’ve used yet, but have always known Sunshimmer to be a good go-to for a wash off tan. The BB label to me doesn’t really make it all that different. But this is a full sized product which always gets points in beauty box world.
Bourjois Cream Blush in shade 01 – A gorgeous peachy blush shade. You can read more about what I think of Bourjois Cream Blushers here.
Hawaiian Tropic Satin Protection – Love the size of these bottles. They’re great for UK sun protection when you don’t really know if it’s going to be sunny but don’t want to be caught out and get burnt. Perfect handbag size. Another full size.
Self Tan Mitt – Not much to say about this, other than always comes in handy.
Magnifibers Lashes – The only product I haven’t tried yet, but very curious. Let me know if you have in the comments.
Crabtree & Evelyn Nail Polish – Yet another full size. Who knew Crabtree & Evelyn did nail colours?! A classic red and lovely quality. Need to check out their other shades and see if there’s anything interesting in there…
Toni & Guy Glamour Plumping Whip – I’ve talked about this before here as a product I really like. It’s fab for giving hair a bit of ‘oophm’ if it tends to be flat and lifeless *raises hand* love that this is in the box. A flat haired girls dream.
DHC Cleansing Oil – the first cleansing oil I tried and changed my skincare regime forever. Well worth a try and love having a travel sized around (a little goes a long way so lasts a while!)
All in all, a safe bet of a Beauty Box – if you don’t like a beauty gamble then definitely check this out as it’s packed with good stuff. My top picks being the Bourjois Cream Blush, Illamasqua Glamore Lipstick and Hawaian Tropic Suncreen.
For just £16.95 this box is beyond a bargain. Available from Latest in Beauty.*
