Latest in Beauty - The GLAMOUR Beauty Edit Box
You've probably seen this little beauty of a box making the rounds over all the British beauty blogs recently, but with very good reason. I have never invested in a beauty box subscription before, but when I heard about Latest in Beauty teaming up with GLAMOUR to create this stunning Beauty Edit Box, I couldn't pass up the £14.95 to have one of my own. Especially when the contents are worth £65! So just what's in this heavenly box?
You get a handy set of Eyeko Lash Curlers, perfect for those that haven't taken the plunge with the infamous Shu Uemura set and are looking for a good alternative. Achieving a steadfast curl that lasts the night is quick and easy, and you've got to love the blue velvet handles for the ultimate in luxury.
Next up you've got the sample sized Benefit They're Real! Mascara, which is a personal favourite! I have bought this mascara previously and it's currently my go-to for creating full bodied lashes that are long as well as full of volume. I have to mention the little ball on the end of the wand that makes reaching those little lashes all the more satisfying.
The next product is HD Brows Eye & Brow Palette, which is the main reason I invested in this box from the outset. I've ogled this palette for some time, but didn't know if I was going to get along with it, but the long-lasting, anti-smudge powders are worth the cost of the box alone!
Another handy product that I was looking forward to trying was the Balance Me Radiance Face Oil. It plumps, smoothes and gives skin a real glow; all to be expected from an award winning beauty product!
You've also got the Philip Kingsley One More Day Dry Shampoo, which is a complete lifesaver when you need to go that extra day without washing your hair but just can't face the outside world. I would even use this just to add a little texture to just washed hair, it's wonderful for transforming limp and lifeless tresses.
There is of course a lip treat included in the form of Maybelline Baby Lips. I have a grape fragranced one and was happy to add another to my collection. Who doesn't like a lip balm that touts long hydration, SPF20 and a kick of colour?
Lastly, there was a mini size Toni & Guy GLAMOUR Firm Hold Hairspray. The ideal size for popping in your handbag for touch-ups on the go. It smells quite nice for a hairspray, and the hold is long lasting, while easy to style.
