This box came in the mail this morning and I'm really excited about it! While it is technically a beauty box, it doesn't flow along the same concept as the rest of them. This is from Latest in Beauty, and they function on a very different premise. They do themed boxes, such as Anti-Aging, etc. and this was a box based on a collaboration with Glamour Magazine to bring you some of the best products out there. The best thing about this is that you know exactly what you're getting and at an extremely good deal. There are a number of products in here that I really want to try out, so this is perfect for me!

[John Frieda's Frizz-Ease]
This definitely looks interesting. It's also a post-hairwash serum to be applied to damp hair which is meant to lessen frizz and add shine. Can't wait to test it out!
[Revlon's Revlon Red (680)]
I will admit that I already have this exactly polish, but that means that I can also tell you that it really is an absolutely gorgeous fire engine red that goes on like a dream and lasts the way Revlon should! On a side note, this colour also goes matte quite well so try it out!
[Stila's Lip Gloss in Kitten]
The interwebzzz has been abuzz with rave reviews of this particular shade for years now but I haven't run out to go get it as yet so this is perfect! I've tried a number of their glosses and Stila really does make wonderful products. I'm quire sure this is not going to disappoint!
[L'oreal's 24h Gel Eyeliner in Golden Black (02)]
I've not really gotten into gel liners and I suspect the reason for that is because I am so completely devoted to my Shisheido Pen Liner because it is the best thing to have ever been invented. But, now is as good a time as any to start experimenting. I found it interesting that this wasn't a completely black shade and you can see from the picture that it has very tiny gold shimmer in it. I have a MAC gel liner that runs along similar lines so I'll compare the two when I get back.
[Bastiste's Dry Shampoo]
I have recently acquired a longing to try dry shampoos out and all my research always yields results touting this as one of the best. I have already bought Percy & Reed's dry shampoo, so it would be interesting to see how the two compare. Excitement! Competition really does bring out the best in everything.
[Benefit's The POREfessional]
I've been eyeing this product for SO LONG that I think it's only fair that it came in this box! I'm currently using Clinique's product for minimising the appearance of fine lines and pores, so I'm curious as to whether this could be a good substitute. Very curious. I'm really starting to love these products as primers because they do work just as well and even better than for people with combination/oily skin.
[Ginvera's Green Tea Exfoliating Marvel Gel]
Another exfoliator! I cannot express how ecstatic I am! I also like how they specify on the packaging "30 Rubs to Smoother & Radiant Skin". It sounds so wrong, but so right! Since this came on the market, I've been eyeing it as well and I like that it's a sample size so that I am not trapped! It's really been a while since I've used anything by Ginvera, so I'm hoping they have upped their game. They've certainly jumped on the Green Tea bandwagon. Green tea works wonders for removing dark circles when placed on them by the way (as does any tea containing caffeine), so it definitely has positive skin benefits!
[The Vintage Cosmetic Company's Tweezers]
I love these!!! I have 3 pairs of tweezers which work all right but nowhere near as well as these do and I'm quite stoked! If I'm not careful, I won't have eyebrows tomorrow. The angled line of the edge allows for better precision and grip so they really are everything they are touted as being.
[JINNYlash's Strip Eyelashes]
I don't use false lashes, but these are very pretty. They even come with eyelash adhesive, so the convenience might cause me to use them. We shall see! These seems rather full and dramatic, so perhaps cutting them and using them on the outer half of my lashes would provide a very nice winged look. Hmm...I might have to try this out!
This box retails at £14.95 (including postage), and I think it really is well worth it. I love everything in here and I'm really excited about trying them all out. I think that teaming up with a beauty magazine made all the difference and it definitely functions as a pretty good started kit for anyone wanting to foray into trying different things. For the record, this isn't permanently available, so if you want it order it quick! I also feel like I need to mention how awesome it is that I received this today, when I ordered it last Friday night. Efficiency = Love.
