A few weeks ago I suggested that you snap up the Latest in Beauty Glamour Beauty Edit box before it sold out.
I thought I’d just do a quick run down of the products after using them for the past couple of weeks so you can purchase them yourself if you were interested in them. The box isn’t available any more but all of the products can be purchased separately.
I’m a sucker for simple monochrome and gold is my metallic of choice so the box design was my absolute favourite of all of the boxes I’ve ever received before.
It also came with a ‘menu’ of the products inside which is pretty standard in beauty boxes but nonetheless informative.
The above tissue paper is the prettiest I’v ever seen; I’ve actually kept it safe. Weirdo!
Here’s the products in the box in all their glory:
Philip Kingsley One More Day (dry shampoo)
Balance Me Radiance Face Oil
Toni & Guy Glamour Firm Hold Hairspray
Eyeko Lash Curler
Benefit They’re Real mascara (deluxe sample size)
Maybelline Baby Lips
HD Brows Brow Palette in Foxy
The HD Brows Eye and Brow Palette came in the colour Foxy which was chosen as the best colour palette for the majority of people. I’d say this was correct as the colours can be chosen and mixed as required for your brows and the rest can be used to create a nude eye look for day time.
With my eye brows being almost black in colour, but my skin tone being rather on the pale side it’s a hard compromise between looking like Madonna with massively black eye brows or non existent ones (which is quite laughable really).
This brow palette was worth £25 on its own and was the main reason I snapped up the box in the first place. I wasn’t disappointed and although my brows are almost black; I actually end up using the bottom right colour (the darker brown) instead of the black/brown as it defines my brows without making me look like I’ve sharpied them onto my face.
Lots of thumbs up for this product, you barely need anything on the end of the brush, it stays on my face all day including through the gym and after a fair few weeks of usage I can honestly say it still looks the same as in the photos above. Worth the money!
I have to say, as far as eye lash curlers go I am not a fan of them. I am blessed in the lash department with long and thick lashes….but not blessed with lashes that can be curled.
However hard I try, my lashes do not budge. Any curl that is created lasts a few mere minutes and so I give up on using them. These would probably work really well for someone with normal eyelashes but mine seem to be industrially straightened!
The design is nice though and the fact it comes with extra pads is great, its very sturdy too and i can tell its good quality, but it’s just not for me.
Balance Me Facial Oil – This is a great product, it’s had many rave reviews and from my experience it smells amazing, rolls onto the skin evenly and sinks in like a dream. I’ve really loved using this and would consider purchasing it again.
Benefit’s They’re Real mascara – I’ve written about this before and still love it. I have quite a few minis in my collection now from magazines and the like so need to start using them more!
Philip Kingsley – As my first ever PK product I was excited to try it out as I’ve heard plenty about the brand. This is effectively dry shampoo and it had a great fresh smell (I hate strong smells). This worked really well to degrease my day old hair and does exactly what it says on the can – One more Day. I’m not sure I’d repurchase this as at £10.80 plus it is double the price of Batiste and they do just the same job.
Toni & Guy Glamour Firm Hold Hairspray – This was perfect to take away with my when i needed to create an up do for the Murder Mystery party we went to. As testament to its holding abilities I woke up with my hair still in a bun ring the next day after a few hours partying…..amazing.
Maybelline Baby Lips – Having already reviewed these i didn’t have much excitement for another as I didn’t feel like the first one did a lot for me. However this totally plain lip balm has become a staple in my lab coat pocket and has been great for hydrating my lips with all of the air con at the lab.
I have to say, paying £15 for this box was 100% worth it. I’ve got some favourite products (Benefit), some that I’ve wanted to try for a long time (HD Brows and Balance Me) and of course some nice surprises (PK and Babylips).
Did you snap up the box afterwards? Glamour have definitely got some of the favourites right don’t you think?
