Love Me Beauty Box * | £12.95 including P&P
All of August's Love Me Beauty box options (you get to pick from three different menus) each had a total of four beauty products, rather than the usual five or six. However, I would class every product as high-end - the total RRP of my box this month came to almost £65, so this really is still incredible value for money. I love that every product came in its own little box; higher end products seem to all be doing that these days. First up was a Mineral Eyeshadow (RRP £14.49) from the brand Marsk in the shade 'You're Toast'. It's a beautiful colour, incredibly pigmented and a really nice introduction to a brand I'd never heard of before. A La Carte, another brand I've never tried, included their Smudge-Proof Eyebrow Definer in Blonde (RRP £23.00) which allows you to make tiny strokes which really look like genuine hairs. It's a very different experience to using a powder or a pencil to fill in your brows, and when you've got a bit of extra time to spend on your makeup, it's great. From Mirabella there was a Lip Lustre Liner in 'Bashful' (RRP £10.50) which was probably the least impressive product in the box. However, it's still a nice enough lip liner, in a versatile shade of pink. Finally, there was a Ecollagen Wrinkle Correcting Eyecream from Oriflame (RRP £16.95) which is one of those really amazing eyecreams with a rollerboll that feels just amazing to put on under your eyes.
I was rather chuffed with this month's box, AND I've just heard some really exciting news about Love Me Beauty - they're changing the service so that you can pick exactly what goes into your box. I'm really looking forward to trying out the the new Love Me Beauty boxes!
