The Latest in Beauty Glamour Beauty Edit box!

I think beauty boxes are a great idea but I've never signed up to one, in a bid to save my money! I recently saw a photo of the Latest in Beauty Glamour Beauty Edit box on Instagram and decided to cave and myself one.


Latest in Beauty is different to other beauty boxes as there's no monthly subscription, you can just make a one off purchase from their collection or even create your own beauty box with the range of samples they have available. This month they have collaborated with Glamour magazine to create a box full of party must haves. The box costs £14.95 and the contents are worth £65! It contains...


Eyeko lash curlers (full size), Maybelline Baby Lips (full size), Balance Me Extra Care Radiance Face Oil (mini), HD Brows Eye & Brow Palette (full size), Benefit They're Real! (mini), Philip Kingsley One More Day dry shampoo (mini) and Toni & Guy Glamour Firm Hold Hairspray (mini).


These lash curlers are super cute and glamorous as they have velvet handles. Admittedly, I never really bother with lash curlers and think they're a bit pointless but I think they will make a great gift for someone else! Plus they come with two spare rubber liners so they will last you for ages.


They're Real! Is one of my favourite mascaras and I love having the mini one as I can keep it in my handbag and it takes up less room in my make up bag. I've never actually owned a full size version of They're Real!, I always get the mini ones in gift sets and they last me such a long time!


Dry Shampoo is one of those holy grail products I can't live without and usually use on a daily basis so I always buy the biggest size of tropical Batiste so I'm well stocked up, but the bottle is huge and a bit of a pain to take around with me! So this little can is perfect for keeping in my handbag and taking to the gym. I'm so used to using Batiste that I didn't really like this one as much but it's still perfect for on-the-go use.


Hairspray is another essential to take out and about with me so I'm looking forward to using this!


This is probably the product I was most excited about having the beauty box! There was such a hype about Baby Lips before they were released then when they came out a lot of people said they didn't like them that much so I wasn't sure what to expect but after using this once I already love this lip balm! Usually with lip balms they can feel a bit dry at first and I have to use them a couple of times to "break them in" but this lip balm goes on so smoothly and keeps my lips hydrated for ages. This particular lip balm was clear and was meant to be menthol scented, the smell wasn't particularly strong but I wasn't too fussed!


This little 10ml bottle is worth £15 on it's own so it was a bargain that it was included in the box. This face oil helps to boost radiance and is suitable for all skin types. It comes with a roller ball applicator which is a really nice touch and helps to boost circulation while it is applied.


There has been a lot of hype around the HD Brows palette, I got the shade 'Foxy' which is a medium shade. I think it might be a bit too dark for me but I'm looking forward to trying it out.


Altogether I am really happy with the contents of the Glamour Beauty Edit box and I can't wait to see what Latest in Beauty bring out next month!
