Love Me Beauty - Edition 3Monday, August 18, 2014
My first August beauty box has arrived! The Love Me Beauty box took a while to arrive - usually their service is very fast and the maximum time I've had to wait has been 5 days. This time it took 9 days and I had already started to worry that maybe it had been lost in the post. Luckily, my beauty box arrived today as I was really excited to get it.
I chose Edition 3 - the box contained 4 full size products.
Marsk - Mineral Eye Shadow in shade 'Lucky Penny' - RRP £14.49
I don't like loose powder eye shadows much but as it is 100% natural and cruelty free I might give it a try. It is highly pigmented and has a creamy texture which makes the product easy to apply wet or dry.
A La Carte - Smudge-Proof Eyebrow Definer in Blonde - RRP £23
I've had this brand before. I got their mascara from one of the previous beauty boxes and I wasn't very impressed. I have never used water-based eyebrow definer before but luckily it can also be used as an eyeliner or for body art. It might be more useful to me as an eyeliner. Basically this Brow Ink can be applied on brows using small strokes for getting individual hairs. It can be left to dry on its own, softened quickly with a cotton bud or smudged with a brow brush.
Oriflame - Swedish Spa Beauty Wonder Oil - RRP £8.45
Like you all know by now, I love body oils! This oil by Oriflame is perfect to use for a massage, moisturising, bathing or even as a pre-shampoo treatment for dry hair. It contains coconut oil, sweet almond oil, ginger oil and Vitamin E. It doesn't smell very strong which is amazing for me, as I like body oils natural and it leaves room for you to use own perfume.
And last Mirabella - Lip Luster Liner in shade 'Shy' - RRP £10.50
Yesss! I have wanted a good lip liner for a while and I am looking forward to using this properly. I have tested it already and it is so easy to blend and layer. It also contains Aloe Vera which keeps lips soft and application comfortable. It has a long-wearing shiny finish and is the perfect base for a lip gloss. This liner also sticks better on clean surfaces, so it is not recommended to wear lip balm before applying.
Overall I am super happy with my box and Love Me Beauty just keeps surprising me with good products! I always love to try out some new brands!
