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.
