Latest in Beauty - Editors Picks - August 2013

For a long, long time - every month I would eagerly await my beauty box.  Whether it be from Glossybox or most recently, Birchbox.  I would be excited to read everyone elses' spoilers before mine arrived.  Either hoping I'd get something different or hoping I'd get the same.  To be honest - I think I quite often received the booby box.  After a phase of not so great boxes, I decided to cancel my subscriptions.  However, this month I was browsing on the Latest in Beauty website (as I do regularly) and decided to treat myself to the 'Editor's Picks' box.

Don't get me wrong, I can find these boxes to be quite repetitive but this month I was pleasantly pleased with what they were offering - a little box to pamper yourself and whats more they had a sale on.  Normally the LIB boxes are about £19.50 but this month they have a sale on and I got 10 items for £12.95!   Even without the sale though, you do get a lot of full sized products or at least, decent sample sizes. 
 I love the fact that with LIB you can make up your mind on the day, whether you want to go for one or not.  
This months box

NSpa (Nirvana Spa) Beauty Rituals - Melting Cleansing Gel - full size 
Melting cleansing gel - sounds lush

The Vintage Cosmetics Company - Shadow Brush
Who doesn't love a new makeup brush?

Yardley - English Rose Body Fragrance  full size
 My all time favourite body spray

Eve Lom Rescue Mask - good sized sample 
 Excited to try this

Mavala Nail Varnish - 385 Rouge Rubis 
A stunning ruby red varnish with sprinkles of glitter

Mirrenesse - Lip Gloss  
 Little disappointed I was sent a mauve shade, however you take what you get.  The formula is a little sticky. 

benefit they're Real Mascara - sample size 
I have quite a collection of these samples.  Not that I mind in the slightest, I love this particular product

Nicky Clarke - Instant Calmer - sample
Anything that claims to tame a mop is great in my book

Bellapierre Cosmetics - Mineral Eyeshadow in 'Celebration' 
This is a bronze shimmer powder and is extremely versatile 'mix this little gem with your favourite moisturiser, lip balm, or even a drop of water and it becomes an eye shadow, eyeliner, mascara, lipstick, bronzer, nail polish or whatever you want it to be'

AS London Candle 
Hand made and infused with essential oils, this smells fabulous.   

The LIB Collections for August are still currently up for grabs - you can view them here if you want further information.

  1. Tis a fab box! I was tempted but I have half of the items from it so I can't quite bring myself to get it.

    I'm addicted to LiB and everything they do, heh xx

  2. Oh wow, you got a lot of great products! I LOVE that mascara so much!

  3. Oo i want this, going to sign up now!

    Lovely blog, would love you to follow mine back.

  4. Sceptical about 'They're Real', i've heard some bad things about it!

  5. This looks pretty good, I must admit :) I have gone off beauty boxes in general but this does look one of the better ones.

  6. I haven't bought a box from them in ages as they keep rehashing the same products from their advent calender. Shame as they used to be my favourite beauty box x

    1. I completely agree they can be very repetitive. I'd be miffed if I had a subscription and got the same stuff all the time.

  7. I agree with Sam (above) I really like LIB but a bit disappointed that there are only two 'new' products in this box, would love to see a review on the melting cleansing gel though!

  8. wow I really love the things you got in this box!:) xo

    Shabby Chic and Tea♥

  9. Hmm...that looks like an excellent box!! I cancelled my Glossybox as well! Not very happy with what they were sending and I would always get mine LATE!!


  10. Ooh I like that you received a candle in your box. Never seen one in a box. That's awesome!

    The Caribbean Flower

  11. This looks like such a lovely box, well worth the money!

  12. You received some really wonderful products! So lucky you were able to get them at such a cheap price too.
