Love Me Beauty Box | £10.00+ P&P* | Link
I can't believe it's the last weekend before Christmas already! I seem to have ploughed through my advent calendar at super speed this year and it still doesn't seem 5 minutes since last Christmas! One thing I've been looking forward to in the month of December (as well as all the tree decorating and chocolate consuming) is my Love Me Beauty box. I've been quite excited about the December box so when it arrived safe and sound on my doorstep, it felt like an early Christmas present and I couldn't wait to delve into it's delights! Here's what came in my box this month...
Lord & Berry | Intensity Lipstick in 'Glazed Pink' | Full Size | RRP £12.00
I adore Lord & Berry lipsticks so I was really excited about receiving another shade to add to my collection this month. 'Glazed Pink' is the most stunning baby pink shade. The formula is just lovely - it contains macadamia oil and waterlily extracts to help keep your lips hydrated and in good condition, and it glides onto the lips smoothly and effortlessly. I find the pigmentation and finish of this one to be similar to the Cremesheen finishes by Mac - although with a little added dimension and gloss. I adore this shade already - It's the perfect nude pink and looks lovely against my winter skin. A little pop of pink blush and I'm good to go!
Lord & Berry | Kiss Proof Lip Liner in 'Seduction' | Full Size | RRP £7.50
Again, another lovely addition I was really happy to receive. I love the Lord & Berry lip liners and the last one I tried became a make-up bag staple within days. I do tend to pop lip liner on if I'm wearing lipstick as I find it helps enhance my lip shape more and gives that 'perfected' finish - so I'm always on the lookout for new shades to add to my little collection. I don't tend to wear brighter pinks a lot so I won't get as much wear out of this as I would from a nude or bright red shade - but it's handy to have nonetheless.
Headline Colours | Nail Polish in 'Quicksand' | Full Size | RRP £9
I'm always happy to see a nail polish in a beauty box - especially when it's a colour I know I'll use and love. I adore taupe shades on the nails - it always looks so classy and elegant (and you never have to worry about matching nails to an outfit!). This one claims to be resistant to chipping, flaking and cracking, and is said to be extra durable. Perfect for me as I always seem to chip my polish easily!
S5 | Vitality Mask | Exclusive to Love Me Beauty
I'm really getting into face masks just recently so this S5 Vitality Mask sounds like just the treat my skin needs. The formula is clinically proven to reduce imperfections by 60% and pore size by 20%. I cannot wait to try this!
Rodial | 5 Minute Facial | Sample Size | RRP £35
I was so excited to see Rodial make an appearance in the boxes this month! I've always liked the sound of their products and have read quite a bit about them in magazines so this is the perfect chance for me to finally give them a whirl! The 5 minute facial is said to exfoliate, decongest the skin and clarify whilst absorbing impurities and reducing pore size. It contains 'Argirline' which is said to help reduce stress by helping to relax the facial muscles. I don't know about you but it sounds like a wonder mask to me! I cannot wait to try it!
Once again, it's a thumbs up from me for the December Love Me Beauty Box. Although, if I was so be extremely picky - I can't help but think it would have been nice to receive a little festive addition in the form of a red lip liner or something glittery - but I loved everything I got this month nonetheless. Overall - a fabulous box and I'm so happy with the menu I chose - the Rodial additions to the menus this month and the gorgeous Lord & Berry lipstick really made it for me! Also, Love Me Beauty have passed on a little 20% discount code which is valid from the 5th December all the way up to the 10th January - so if you've never tried a beauty box before or fancy treating someone for the New Year, it really is the perfect opportunity to do so! Simply enter the code 'LMBBB20' into the delivery section when you order.
