When I heard through the grapevine about the new Latest in Beauty 'Glamour Spring Edit' box - I knew it would be a good'un. With contents totalling a whopping £99, there was bound to be some beauty gems in there - and I wasn't wrong. There's definitely some big names in the Spring box - Moroccan Oil, Nuxe, Kiko and Revlon to name a few. It's safe to say that I couldn't wait to get my mitts into this one...
Packaged in a pastel coloured box and wrapped in dotted tissue, the Spring Edit box is a pastel, girly treat containing 9 different products. Here's what I received in my box:
- Model Co Creme Rouge Cheek & Lips in Just Peachy
- Moroccan Oil Intense Hydrating Mask - 75ml
- Beauty UK High Brow Kit
- Rimmel Oh My Gloss! Lip Gloss in 'Snog'
- Revlon Colorstay Nail Enamel in 'Full House'
- Revlon Colorstay Gel Envy Diamond Top Coat
- Nuxe Creme Fraiche De Beaute Mask, 50ml
- Kiko Long Lasting Eyeshadow Stick in 07
- Elie Saab L'eau Couture Perfume sample
A delightful mix of hair, makeup, skin and nail goodies I'm sure you'll all agree! The box also comes with a 12 month subscription to Glamour magazine discounted by 62%...all for £16.99*. I have to say I reckon this might be the best Latest in Beauty box yet... I've bought a few of them in the past and I've never been disappointed but this one really does top the mark for me! As far as beauty boxes go - Latest in Beauty have to be my 'go to'... Yes, you loose the element of surprise slightly but you're never left feeling disheartened and there's always a fabulous variety of products to try. I often check the website to see what's coming up...
I won't go into detail of each individual product as I'm still working my way through trying and testing all of them - let's face it, there's a lot to get through (i predict there might be a couple popping up in a monthly favourites sometime soon...) Personal favourites so far have to be the ModelCo Creme Cheek and Lip tint in 'Just Peachy'. It's a stunning bright coral-red perfect for the summertime - I reckon this will be a holiday favourite for me. As I'm thinking of booking a holiday abroad soon I'm sure I'll get plenty of use from this over the next few months. I love a good versatile product too so the fact that it works well on the lips to is a nice fruity bonus!
I'm also a fan of the Rimmel 'Oh My Gloss' lipgloss. It's so smooth and glides onto the lips easily with next to no stickiness at all. I love the shade as it pairs well with my '90s' nude lipstick shades - I love it over Mac's Velvet Teddy at the moment! It just adds a bit of dimension and the pink hue is really flattering.
The Moroccan Oil Intense Hydration mask is also a winner in my books. I love a good hair product and I'm always reaching for deep conditioners and masks like this one - I'd like to do a full review of this soon so for now I shall keep it short and sweet - but it's made for a very welcome addition to my hair cupboard. I'm also super excited about the Nuxe Creme Fraiche De Beaute Mask. I've heard amazing things about this face mask, and after reading a few reviews of this box it's clear that it's been the star of the show. I can't wait to see what it does for my skin - I've been burning the candle at both ends just recently so to say it could do with a bit of pampering is an understatement...
I was also chuffed to see Kiko make an appearance in this box - i've always wanted to try something from the brand so this lovely champagne toned eyeshadow stick will make for a nice introduction. As for the other products, the BeautyUK eyebrow palette is a must-have in my collection. I actually already have this from a past beauty box but I've got a tonne of use out of it so it's nice to have back-up ready and waiting. The Revlon polishes are a lovely addition too - I particularly like the blue shade as I think it's going to look amazing with tanned skin through summer.
Overall, I'm so happy with this box. There's not a single thing in there I wouldn't use and I think it's been the best LIB box so far for me. The mix of products is really well thought through and I like that the shades of the products are quite neutral - meaning i'll get plenty of use from them on a daily basis. You can grab the Glamour Spring Beauty Edit box on the Latest in Beauty website here for £16.99*.
