August Latest In Beauty Box

Hauls, Uncategorized

I love when it gets to the end of the month, purely because I know I will be getting a email from Latest In Beauty telling me its time to pick my items for my box!.

Latest In Beauty are a monthly subscription box that offer makeup, beauty, hair care and lifestyle goodies. What sets this company aside from the rest is the fact that you get to choose all your own products so you shouldn’t be disappointed like I have in the past at pre picked items that I would never end up using!.

This is my second box with them and I have the Beauty Guru plan  which is the premium box, this lets you pick nine products for £18 with free postage!. There is also other options to pick either three or six products for less money!. Everyone no matter what there price plan is will get a cute medium sized makeup bag with their first order. They also include free gifts in with your orders each month In my first months box I received two full sized makeup products from Rodial and Kiko cosmetics!.





Here is this months picks and a short review of the products I received!.

Batiste Stylist Smooth Frizz Tamer

The idea of this product is too tame frizzy hair and I used by spraying onto dry hair, I originally picked this up as I am a huge fan of their dry shampoo range and I do tend to get frizz as I colour my own hair. It didn’t weight my hair down but it didn’t tame any frizz either so its a no from me!

Amphora Aromatics Orange & Clove Candle

A bit of weird thing to receive in beauty box but I do love a candle so decided to have this as one of my picks. It has a gorgeous spicy scent to it which will be perfect for the winter months (if I’m not temped to light before).

Palmers Coconut Oil Body Lotion

Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Shade ‘210’

Chose this thinking it was just a normal red shade as I had ran out of my usual barry m red polish but it actually has tiny specs of red glitter in it making it slightly metallic. This will be something I will be over using during the Christmas period so its not a complete waste of a pick!

Eyeko Black Magic Mascara Midnight Blue

This is my favourite out of this months box, I have tons of black mascara so wanted to mix it up a bit with some dark blue. I love the ultra curved wand of this and it makes your lashes look so killer and long. Cant wait to continue using this.

OPI Nail Polish ‘Worth a pretty penne’

How cute is this mini from OPI?. I own quite a few of their full sized nail polishes and they always last ages and are full of colour, so I knew I wouldn’t be disappointed. This has a gorgeous gold metallic look to it.

OPI Nail Polish ‘Miss piggy with it’

Another mini I picked is this Royal metallic blue from the OPI Muppets collection. Cant wait to use it on a night out for some nail glam.

Elemis Pro Cleansing Balm

I will be doing a full review of this product soon, as I am currently testing it out now. I have wanted to try out some products from Elemis so was delighted to see this on the list. Its a cleansing balm that helps remove all traces of makeup while leaving your skin hydrated.

MUA Twelfth Night Eyeshadow Palette

This is my least favourite of my picks, it looked great on the site but just not something I would reach for when I have other colours similar and more pigmented in my current eyeshadow collection. I wont be opening so I will be including it as part of a giveaway when I reach a certain amount of followers.


Overall I am not majorly impressed with this months picks (I know I chose my items), especially when my first box last month was super impressive. That being said Latest In Beauty get new products in daily so by the end of this month their will be lots of new products to choose from so I’m not too disappointed and will continue to subscribe.
