So it arrived……….the latest editon of the Latest in Beauty Dream box brought to you by the British Beauty Blogger. If you’ve never experienced one of these before ladies you are in for a treat.
Where’s it from: you can purchase this box from http://www.latestinbeauty.com
Cost: £21.95 with free postage and packaging
Whats in it: 15 sample and full size items all wrapped up in a reusable box. It comes with a booklet with info and offers
See below what I think of the third edition in the series.
1. Two full size Essence Nail varnishes 8mls each.
The Nudes: 03 I’m lost in you – glossy finish standard everyday nude
The Pastels: 04 Sweet at first sight- in the bottle it looks frosty, cheap and nasty however it dries Matt and leaves natural pale pink colour with faint shimmer. I love the finish.
Verdict: dries quickly, needs two coats, good value for money, neutral look for everyday wear.
2. One full size Bourjois Rouge Velvet Lip gloss
07 Nude-ist Matt Finish 7.7ml – I’ve been wanting to try one of these for ages! It does not disappoint. Once this is applied it doesn’t budge. I got a pretty pink nude colour and will definitely try more in this range. See it swatched on the right below. Pigmentation is fantastic.
3. One Eye of Horus eye pencil full size.
Lazuli blue goddess eye pencil- Anything that includes the name of an Egyptian god in it must be good. This product is paraben free which is always good for sensitive eyes. This is a beautiful aquatic colour it reminds me of a mermaid. It does not smudge or move even when rubbed and comes with a handy smudge applicator on one end. See swatch below ;
4. Makeup Revolution – the one fluid blusher 14.4g
I got the colour pink dew- I have to say I was surprisingly pleased with an eyeshadow palette from this budget brand I received in a previous box. However I was disappointed in this product. I found it watery, pale and poor colour payoff. Even when built up it doesn’t really give a desired effect. You could possibly use it as a faint highlighter on cheeks but that’s it. Thumbs down from me. Can’t even show you a swatch as it doesn’t pick up on camera.
5. Benefit they’re real makeup remover 7.5 mls
A teeny tiny sample size. I am excited to try this product and see if it lives up to all the hype. I use both they’re real eyeliner and mascara which are hard to budge. I feel this remover is a tad overpriced.
6. Nuxe Masque Creme Fraiche 50ml
I got this before in a glossybox and it leaves skin feeling fresh, hydrated and calm. Suitable for sensitive skin and does not irritate my eczema prone face. Good to have a back up.
7. Ole Henriksen pure true melting cleanser 15ml
Have been wanting to try a product from this brand for a while now. Excited to try and compare with Liz Earle cleanse and polish as I feel it strips my skin of moisture.
BODY & HAIR
8. Deciem Hand Chemistry 30ml
Ok do we all really need another handcream? This one is the No 1 selling handcream in boots. It smells pretty good has a citrus smell not too overpowering . Skin feels soft and hydrated and a bit younger looking so thumbs up from me.
9. The Scottish fine soap company 100g
I got the sea kelp one . I have to say I am not a big user of bars of soap. I prefer liquid soap not as messy. However this pretty little bar comes dressed in a beautiful tin.The smell is so uplifting and it would make a nice gift.
10. Crabtree & Evelyn pear and pink magnolia body lotion 50ml
I love the scent of pears and it a nice travel size for holiday.
11. Vita Liberata luxury tan in medium 20ml
It’s that time of year again body prep begins for summer . I will definitely give this a go nice to receive a mitt to go with it even if it is a bit on the small size. No overwhelming scent from it which is reassuring.
12. Salon Science smoothing serum 50ml
I’ve recently become really into serum and oil for my hair. Hopefully this will help condition my dry ends in between salon visits.
13. Fleur de Figuier Eau De Parfum
I am a big fan of this brand this particular one is light a fruity perfect for summer.
14.Orelia gold tattoos
I have been wanting to try some temp tattoos . Summer is approaching these would look great with a tan.
15. Dr organic aloe vera cherry lip balm SPF 15 full size
Chunky tube easier to find in your handbag not fussed on the smell it’s like marzipan.
VERDICT ON THE BOX
Once again Latest in Beauty comes up with a top notch beauty box I only wish it was monthly.
