Latest in Beauty - The Glamour Spring Edit box | Beauty

I honestly don't remember ordering this box, but it arrived at the same time as the LIB Capital FM beauty box I reviewed the other day. This is a much larger box, with more products contained within however, it was only a couple of quid more at £16.99 including delivery.

Yet again they've won me over with the contents, and I can definitely see me using them all, so I'm over the moon with another fabulous purchases from Latest in Beauty. It seems they can't do wrong at the moment!

This collaboration box is with Glamour magazine, and came with a voucher code for a subscription to the magazine. This included 12 print issues and 12 iPad and iPhone issues too, along with an entry to win a goody bag over £500. I really like this idea, I don't often subscribe to magazines or read them in print so to be given this for free was a nice added extra. They also included a voucher code printout too for Glamour readers, offering discounts on the product brands contained within. I'm looking forward to 15% off Kiko as I love their stuff!
What's in the box?
Nuxe Creme Fraiche 24hr Soothing and Rehydrating face mask: it's nice to receive a full size of this product as I think it will work perfectly on my skin. I have oily but dehydrated skin so I'm hoping this will work. The tip is to apply for ten minutes once a week for the best results.

Moroccan Oil Intense Hydrating Mask: another full sized product, very nice. This is ideal for hydrating my over-processed and dye damaged hair so I'm looking forward to giving this a try. I suppose it's meant for longer hair as the instructions suggest mid-long length hair however, I'm sure it will work a dream (and last longer!) on my hair.

Revlon ColorStay Gel Envy Nail Enamel and Diamond Top Coat: I do love receiving nail polishes and decent top coats however, it says it's long-lasting and well, long-lasting for me would be an hour. I'm hoping this gives a gel-style finish and lives up to it's claims. I received the nail polish in shade full house.

BeautyUK High Brow All In One Brow Definition Kit: I really like this nifty little kit. Personally I think it's ideal for me as with ever colour changing hair, it's nice to have a kit with several shades for my eyebrows. I think I'll get a lot of use from this kit too. I don't pluck my eyebrows, but it's always handy to have a pair of tweezers around just in case.

Rimmel Oh My Gloss! Lipgloss: I received shade twinkle twinkle which is a glittery pink colour and not really to my taste however, it might look a lot more natural on so I'll definitely give it a go. I'm not fond of shiny, sticky lip glosses either so I'm not sure what to expect!

Kiko Long Lasting Stick Eyeshadow: I received this in shade 06 which is a beautiful bronze colour. I do have one very similar to this that I picked up from the Tony Moly store in Jinan but I think it'll be great to add to my collection. I don't often wear eyeshadows so something quick and easy like this stick that I can just run along my lid would be perfect. I've even seen it worn in replacement of eyeliner so we shall see how this looks.

ModelCo Creme Rouge Cheek and Lips: It states on the card that the shade is just peachy so I'm presuming everyone received the same shade of this. I absolutely adore two in one products and I think they made the perfect make up bag staples especially when travelling and going on holiday. I haven't swatched this product yet however, it looks fairly bright and pigmented in the pot so I'm a bit weary about how much I apply, I think less is more when it comes to products like this.

Elie Saab L'Eau Couture: This is a sample sized perfume, but I love receiving these and they are perfect for going on holiday or popping in your handbag. I have a good stash of these already and it's nice to change up fragrances every now and then rather than sticking to my trusty YSL Black Opium or Marc Jacobs Daisy and Lola.

Yet again this is such a super collaboration box from Latest in Beauty, the contents alone are worth £99 so a bargain at £16.99, all products that I will use, and I love the added extra of the magazine subscription too. Well done Latest in Beauty, I look forward to receiving many more of your beautiful boxes in future.
