I try a lot of beauty boxes and rarely think they're worth sharing with my readers, but the Latest in Beauty Glamour Spring Edit is a real gem. Collated by Glamour magazine Beauty Ed, Alessandra Steinherr (worth a stalk on Instagram), it features 7 hero products including makeup, skincare and fragrance. Worth almost £80, you can get your hands on this lot for just £14.99.
MAKEUP & FRAGRANCE
MUA Luxe Eye Shadow Palette (available in two shades) - star of the show and worth of swooning (it's coming)
Bare Minerals Bare Skin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation SPF20 - this gives an inperceptible skinlike finish with a light to medium coverage and I'm hooked. Why have I not tried this before? Totally picking up the full size.
Illamasqua Precision Ink Eyeliner - I'm not great at liquid liner but this one is the most user friendly I've tried. Not sure that I really suit the look, but even I thought my flicks were on fleek!
I couldn't not show you how these shadows look on the skin as I still can't get over them. Mine is Paradise: Plush Plum & Copper (the alternative is Utopia, which looks more neutral; don't think you get a choice). The colours look a little softer here as I photographed them in sunlight to give you an idea of the shimmer and hadn't used any primer. On the eyes they have even better colour payoff (with primer): think 2-3 times the pigmentation you see here. I know MUA is not an expensive brand, but I think the whole box is worth it for this palette alone... copper and bronze eyes for days.
HAIR & SKINCARE
Moroccanoil Treatment Light - treats dryness and adds gloss without weighing down my hair (and smells gorgeous).
Murad AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser - designed for use 2-3 times a week, this helps skin look brighter and feel more hydrated. I've used this before and I like. The box includes a £10 gift card for Murad (no minimum spend).
Malin & Goetz Vitamin E Face Moisturizer - oil-free and vitamin packed, this is great for sensitive skin and has a light, silky texture. A great way to try this lovely brand at a fraction of the price.
Not a single dud in the Latest in Beauty Glamour Spring Edit Box, a great way to try new brands or sort your holiday beauty bits in one go.
