OK, I'm pretty excited about this one. It's one thing getting fab beauty samples in the post each month, but it's a whole other beauty-party when you know the box you'll be receiving has a contents worth of £86.15. Latest in Beauty have teamed up with Glamour to create what could be the biggest beauty box of the year, full to the brim with incredible products from a huge array of popular high-street and high-end brands. Beauty adorers and enthusiasts alike, The Glamour Beauty Edit Box. With nine products picked by Alessandra Steinherr, Beauty Director at Glamour Magazine, the box is packed full of products which are held highly as the best of the best to have in your beauty stash this summer, including a brand new release from a high-end brand.
First up, the most exciting product in the box is an Illamasqua Glamore Nude Lipstick, from a brand new range released only yesterday, consisting of seven gorgeous, wearable nudes with a creamy, satin finish. The shades in the box will vary, but there's one Glamore Nude in each Glamour Beauty Edit box, and I received Rosepout. I shared my thoughts on Rosepout alongside two other Glamore Nudes, Minx and Cherub yesterday, which you can read here. Must have for any nude-lip fans!
Next up, a brand I was chuffed to see after attending the recent Handy Tips Handed-Down Event, there's a Crabtree & Evelyn Nail Lacquer. There's two shades available, of which you receive one, either a dolly pink or scarlet red; I received the latter, which is a gorgeous deep berry red with tiny iridescent shimmer called Apple/Rouge Sublime.
If you're looking for a golden glow this summer, then there's two tan related products inside the box that might just be perfect! I've been intrigued by the Rimmel Sun Shimmer Instant Tan BB Skin Perfector for quite a while, as it's received rave reviews in the blogosphere. I received a the shade Medium Matte, which for my olive complexion seems to be a fairly good match. Excited to give this 24-hour beauty very soon! Of course, everyone knows to wear a tanning mitt when applying fake tan, and the second tanning-related product in the Glamour Beauty Edit is a Velvotan The Original Tanning Mitt. Promising to help deliver a professional finish at home with ease, it has a waterproof barrier to prevent any tan bleeding through and staining hands.
Of course, whether you're going DIY with your tan or popping on a plane abroad, everyone needs to ensure to protect their skin with SPF and sunscreen. Included is a fab handy travel-size Hawaiian Tropic Satin Protection Ultra Radiance Sun Lotion SPF30. It is the perfect size for popping in your hand-bag and has a gorgeous, almost addictive coconut scent. It's super light-weight and easily sinks into the skin, with no sticky or greasy residue. This is going to be a definite summer must-have!
I don't know about you, but my hair is so awkward to style and maintain in the summer, taking to heat much like Monica in Friends. I'm excited to try the Toni & Guy Volume Plumping Whip which features inside the box, which promises to provide voluminous, super-sized hair with a classic, smooth finish. It has a lovely light-weight creamy formula, with a delicious floral scent.
If you love big lashes then one easy way to achieve them without the need for applying falsies, is the popular Magnifibres Brush-On False Lashes. Designed like a mascara, but with a fiber packaged mascara tube that clings to the brush perfectly for applying to your lashes. The method is pretty easy; apply one coat of your regular mascara, one coat of Magnifibres, followed by another coat of mascara. Instant volume, with a natural look of lengthened lashes, this is a night-out essential.
The warmer months are perfect for whipping out the cream blushers and hidden at the bottom of my box was one of my favourite budget-friendly cream blushers. There's three shades hiding in the Glamour Beauty Edit boxes of the Bourjois Cream Blush, and I received 01 Nude Velvet. A shade already in my stash, I've actually been wearing this all week, finding it the perfect everyday wearable blush.
To finish off an amazing box, a product which will help cleanse away, the highly coveted DHC Deep Cleansing Oil. I've actually tried this before and I wasn't the biggest fan, but I'm determined to give it another go as so many hail this as one of the best cleansing oils. With a skin-loving formula packed with hydrating Olive Oil and Vitamin E, the DHC Cleansing Oil works to remove dirt, grime and makeup.
Now is that a beauty box or is that a beauty box?! Nine full sized, pretty darn incredible products, that are set to get you through the summer rain or shine! This incredible box has a contents worth a massive £86.15 - yet all it costs is £16.95 plus p&p! A limited run box, once this beauty sells out that's it, it's gone! You can order your very own Glamour Beauty Edit Box over on the Latest in Beauty website.
