The Glamour Beauty Edit Box - Latest in Beauty

I like beauty boxes and have subscribed to a fair few over the last 2 years. These have always been subscriptions though and I haven't ever ordered a one off special box, like the ones from Latest in Beauty. When I saw this Glamour box and how packed with products it was, I knew I had to have it.

The box itself is lovely! A cute bright pink lips design, which was also on the sticker inside. When you open the box you have two cards; the product information and some beauty offers.

This box was £16.95 delivered. That's just £3 more than Glossybox and yet look how full it is! Now on to the products.

This is a summer box so it's nice to see some summery products. First up, Rimmel Sun Shimmer Instant Tan BB Skin Perfector £6.99. I am not a huge fan of the Rimmel instant tan but this is a new formula that is supposed to have more benefits for your skin. I will definitely give this a go at some point and it's a great full sized item.

Next up, a very handy item - Hawaiian Tropic Satin Protection Ultra Radiance Sun Lotion SPF30 £5.99. I am very careful when it comes to suncream and this is a handy size for the handbag. SPF30 is also really decent and perfect for the sun we get in Scotland! Very happy with this one and I will likely be using it very soon.

Next up, an item that would have sold this box to a lot of people, Illamasqua Glamore Lipstick £18.50. Mine is in the shade Naked which is a very brown toned nude. I wasn't sure if this was going to be too dark for me but I tried it out, bumped into a friend and was instantly complemented on it! It also lasted a really long time on my lips.

I have always meant to pick up a Bourjois Cream Blush £7.99 but have never got round to it. This one is in shade 02 and is a lovely natural colour for summer. I look forward to seeing if they are worth the hype.

This next item was so interesting that I couldn't wait to try it and instantly used it! Magnifibres Brush-On False Lashes £21. The idea of this is that it lengthens your lashes, making them appear as though you are wearing falsies. It's very easy to use and I got on well with the application. You apply a coat of your regular mascara, quickly followed by a coat of the fibres which you allow 60 seconds to dry. When these are set you apply another coat of mascara. The steps can be repeated to add more length and volume but I find it begins to become very clumpy. The results, although nothing like the pictures, are good and my lashes definitely looked more striking than usual. It also stayed in place for a whole day which is impressive.

I am not really a wearer of nail polish but this Crabtree & Evelyn Nail Laquer £6 is a lovely pale shade and nice for everyday use. I actually didn't know that this brand made nail varnishes!

I have never had much luck with oil cleansers but I'm always willing to try again. This DHC Deep Cleansing Oil £4.50 is sample size at 30ml but will still provide a lot of uses.

Lastly, a hair product. I don't actually use many hair products but maybe that is something I should be changing! Toni&Guy Volume Plumping Whip £7.19 sounds interesting and I will experiment with it at some point!

At the bottom of the box was this Velvotan Tan Mitt £2.99. I tan all the time and always use a mitt so this is a welcome extra as I go through a lot of them!

As you can see, an amazing box packed full of great products!

If you got this box, let me know what you thought!



  1. This looks great! The box is packed! I only buy beauty boxes as a treat every so often. I'd love to get them every month but I just can't afford it unfortunately :(

    1. This is definitely a good one for a treat!

  2. Looks like you got some fab products!
