I have had this box for a week or so now and I’ve struggled to find time to have a good look through it and write a blog, but I finally has a chance to play with the contents of this box. The one thing that I really like about the Latest in Beauty boxes is that you pretty much know what you are getting before it arrives which is great for those who don’t like surprises. I loved the last Glamour Box so when this launched I knew I had to have it.
Here are the Contents:
Item 1: Illamasqua Glamore Nude Lipstick
This is part of a new shade release by Illamasqua. I won’t write too much as I have already done a Paint my Pout Blog on this Lipstick you can read it at: https://thesecretgirlygirl.com/2014/07/31/paint-my-pout-day-33/#more-956
Item 2: Magnifibres
I have heard quite a lot about these fibres, and I have tried a cheaper version which I just thought was a waste of money but when I tried these fibres I really liked them. I love the effect of false lashes but I always find them really fiddly to apply so this is a great way around that. On the product website they say that they can lengthen your lashes up to 5mm, I’m not sure if that is quite the effect I got but I did only add one application and I think that if you were to layer then you may get a more intense effect. The one aspect of these I like is that they are natural fibers and are not going to irritate your eyes if you are a contact lenses wearer (which I am).
The Fibers retail for £15.80 on www.Beautybay.com
Item 3: Rimmell Sunshimmer Instant Tan BB Skin Perfect: Medium
This is one of those tanning products that is instantaneous so you can see the effects as you add it. It is a 9-in-1 product that softens, smoothes, moisturises and creates a healthy Glow. It also evens skin tone, covers imperfections, perfects and lasts up to 24 hours. As you ladies may know I am not a fan of tanning products and as a red head there was no way I could get away with using this medium shade! So I gave this away to a teenage member of the family that would get more use out of it than me.
This product retails for £4.66 at www.Boots.com.
Item 4: Velvotan Tanning Mitt
Again, as I don’t use tan this was pretty much useless to me, so, again this was given away but this box would be perfect for lovers of tan products. I liked the Mitt’s colour though 🙂
Item 5: Hawaiian Tropic satin Protection Ultra Radiance Sun Lotion SPF30 100ml
Now this is my kind of product! An SPF 30 is a must when you are as fair skinned as I am. I like that it comes in a travel size, as I find I never use a full sized sun tan lotion on Holiday so it is just a waste of money and case space. This lotion is great because it isn’t greasy like a lot of lotions on the market, and it has added Vitamin C & E, which is great for your skin. I also like that this lotion has UVA & UVB Protection as it protects the skin against damage and ageing. It is also water resistant so is great for if your planning on going swimming on holiday 🙂
Item 6: DHC Deep Cleansing Oil
I have blogged about this product in the past, and it is one of the main skincare products in my daily routine and has been for a number of years. I like that I now have a travel size to take away with me in my overnight bag. It literally melts away your makeup and removes impurities from your pores.
Grab yours at http://www.dhcuk.co.uk/deep-cleansing-oil – priced £21.50
Item 7: Toni & Guy Volume plumping whip
This is a great Product if you need added volume at your roots. It says on the pot to use a walnut sized blob of product but I think this is far too much I only used half that amount and it was plenty. It really did give me plenty of volume and body at my roots and it smelled lovely.
Available from Boots.com priced £7.19.
Item 8: Crabtree & Evelyn Nail Laquer – Apple
I love this shimmering Red coloured varnish. It was Fast Drying and is a Beautiful shade.
On the website it says that it reinforces nails and protects them but I wasn’t able to find out if that was the case as I use false nails.
Grab yours here: http://www.crabtree-evelyn.co.uk/hand-care/nail-care/apple-nail-polish-801761.html for only £6.00.
Item 9: Bourjois Cream Blush in 01
This was one of the main reasons that I bought this box along with the Magnifibres.
I have used liquid blush & powder Blush, even Gel blush but never cream and I really wanted to try this. Bourjois is one of my favourite makeup brands and I was going to buy one, but when I saw that they had one in this box I bought this instead. I got shade 01 which is probably the best one for my coloring. It was called Nude Velvet and is a lovely peachy pink tone. It is a nice subtle effect but is buildable if you want a more dramatic effect. With beauty enhancing Poppy Extract, Mango Butter and Apricot Extract it’s a great way to give your cheeky a healthy glow.
Available from Boots.com priced £7.99 or is currently part of a 3 for 2 offer.
Overall I loved this box, I wasn’t a fan of the tan products but I knew they were going to be in the box, and I kinda knew i wasn’t gonna use them but overall this is a fantastic box with some cracking products and really is great value for money.
