What can I say, I am a sucker for a good beauty box. Latest in Beauty is one of my favourite boxes for that once in a while treat that is really worth the money. Unlike most beauty boxes in the UK which work on a monthly subscription service basis, Latest in Beauty releases collection boxes which are available for a set period of time or until they are sold out. It's a one off payment for a box of goodies delivered straight to your door! When I saw the recent collaboration box between Latest in Beauty and Glamour Magazine, I just couldn't resist. The contents is amazing! The Latest in Beauty 'The Glamour Beauty Edit' (Latest in Beauty, £14.95) contains seven full sized or travel sized beauty products and has a total worth of £65 - So you are really getting more than your moneys worth with this box! Let's see what's inside shall we?
Toni & Guy Glamour Firm Hold Hairspray 75ml - Described as perfect for back-combing and styling your hair, the Toni & Guy Glamour Firm Hold Hairspray has a concentrated formula to hold your hair in place from day to night. The size I received in the box is a handy handbag sized 75ml and the full size is 250ml (Boots, £6.39) However I am more than happy with 75ml as it's still a fairly decent sized product and hairspray always lasts forever anyway! I've never really tried any products from Toni & Guy so I am excited to see how I get on with this.Product worth: £2.40
Philip Kingsley One More Day Dry Shampoo 50ml - The second hair care product in the box and from a brand many of us know and love for their cult product, the Philip Kingsley Elasticizer (Feel Unique, 75ml, £13.20) Again a travel size, the One More Day Dry Shampoo is usually 200ml (Feel Unique, £11.90) but again, this is the perfect size for me. I very rarely use dry shampoo as with jet black hair I find no matter how much they promise they won't leave a pale dusting, they do. I am excited to try this though as I am a big fan of the Elasticizer and the full size is very purse-friendly for a brand such as Philip Kingsley. Formulated with Zinc PCA which has anti-flaking and sebum control properties, Allantoin which is a soothing agent and works to calm irritated and itchy skin, Bisabolol which has anti-infammatory properties to relieve irritation and flaking as well as Oryza Sativa (rice) Starch which works to adsorb sebum and add texture and volume - it sounds like a dry shampoo I might finally get addicted to!
Product worth: £3.30
Eyeko Lash Curler Curl & Hold full size - The first of the full sized products in the box, I am always happy to have extra eyelash curlers in my stash. At the moment I am using the Kevyn Aucoin The Eyelash Curler, which I adore, but I have been trying to decide on a new curler to buy for on the go in my handbag - so this came along at the perfect time!
Product worth: £12
Now onto the products which really excited me and persuaded me to buy this fantastic beauty box!
HD Brows Eyebrow Palette in Foxy full size - Admittedly, this is probably the product that sold it for me. I adore my HD Brows kit in Foxy and I was considering buying a back up. To see a full sized HD Brows kit, in the shade Foxy which is the one I use, I was sold on the box completely! The HD brows palette comes with four shades including a highlight shade and three brow shades, which can be used alone or together (I like combining the two darkest shades) to give your brows the perfect brow treatment. There's also a handy brush included, although I prefer to use my Sigma E75 Angled Brow Brush when doing my brows.
Product worth: £19.95
Balance Me Radiance Face Oil 10ml - I'm always chuffed to see Balance Me, one of my absolute favourite skincare brands, featured in beauty boxes. I actually have quite a few of the Radiance Face Oils in roller-ball form as well as the full size, so this is going to my sister-in-law as a stocking filler treat. A fantastic oil, the Radiance Face Oil works to enhance luminosity, plump and smooth your skin. It's a winter skin saviour for me!
Product worth: £15
Maybelline Babylips in Peach Kiss full size - Another product I already own, this was the product for my Monday Twitter Giveaway in this week's 'Win all week with Tattooed Tealady'. I've shared my thoughts on the Maybelline Babylips before, when they first launched in the UK, and I personally love them!
Product worth: £2.99
Benefit They're Real! travel size - To finish the box off nicely there is a lovely travel size of the infamous Benefit They're Real! mascara. Having just run out of my travel size, I am thrilled to have another and I will be saving this one for when I have used a few mascaras up. This mascara seems to be a mascara that you either love or hate; I personally really like it as I find it really lengthens my lashes and gives them some oomph without looking as if you have caked on product.
Product worth: £9.50
Overall, a really fantastic box from Latest in Beauty. I highly recommend signing up to the Latest in Beauty newsletter so you can find out which new collections are coming out and when, as they often sell out super quick. The Glamour Beauty Edit box is still available to buy and would make a perfect Christmas present for a friend or family member, or a lovely treat for yourself! Even better, they have free delivery this weekend only! Too good to miss really, isn't it?
