Latest In Beauty - The Party Prep Box

Tuesday, January 27, 2015

 Earlier in the month I told you about one of the two beauty boxes I treated myself to and now I'm going to share then second box.

Again this is a Latest in Beauty box and another one where I knew what I was getting. The product that really sold this box to me was the Dr Organic face mask. I've been looking for a tube face mask for a while and can't settle on which one to get.

What was in the box:
1 x Batiste XXL Plumping Powder (5g)

This is something I've never tried but I've been tempted to buy a couple of times. I've had similar that I bought from my hairdressers that I loved. 

I'll be interested to see how this works. I've seen mixed reviews about it but now my hair is getting longer it needs a bit of omph

1 x Bellápierre Volumizing Mascara in black (9ml)

Another one to add to my collection. I haven't tried this but as it's RRP is £19.99 (on their website. I've seen it for less on other sites) I have high hopes for it. I like the look of the wand. It looks fairly traditional and almost old fashioned now. There seems to be a fashion for random shape and size brushes. I'm looking forward to trying this.

1 x Burt's Bees Beeswax Lip Balm (4.25g)

I seem to have a lot of lip balms at the moment so have put this one away but I do like Burt's Bees products. I'm currently using a tinted lip balm from the same brand.

1 x CHEEKY Chat Me Up Nail Paint (10ml)

I first saw these in superdrug about a year ago and almost bought one. Then I got this same one in another beauty box. I really like the colour and how it applies. 

I've given this one to my friend at work, she seems to be the recipient of all my duplicates.

1 x Daniel Sandler Waterproof Eyeliner (full size, 0.35g)

As I mentioned in the post about the other box, it does feel a bit like this box is made up of left overs of other boxes. This product was an exclusive in the first ever Glamour beauty box I got. 

I'm happy I got another one of these as my mum stole this as soon as I open the Glamour box. I didn't even have a chance to take a photo of it! 

1 x Dr Organic Dead Sea Mineral Bio-Plasma Mud Mask (100ml)

I'm excited to try this. I love using face masks and I've been using a lot of sachet masks. I haven't been able to make my mind up on which mask to buy and I often can't justify the cost. Even though I know when you break it down to cost per use the majority of masks will be cheaper than a sachet which are often £1 each. 

1 x invisibobble the traceless hair ring (full size)

I've had these before and my hair still isn't long enough to use them. I was confused when I first heard about these. How can they be invisible when they are bright colours. I'm so silly after much googling I discovered they are not invisible when they are in your hair but they are not meant to leave the line in your hair when you take them out. 

I will have to report back once my hair is longer.

1 x L'Oreal Paris Infallible 24h Lip colour (full size)

I have tried this a couple of times and I like the colour. The staying power has been mixed one day it lasted a good 4 hours another time it felt like it wore off within 10 mins.

I also find this to stay tacky / sticky on the lips for ages. I don't know if that's how it's meant to  be but I don't like the feeling. 

I'm going to give it a couple more tries as I do like th colour on me,

1 x Paul Mitchell Dry Wash™ Express Dry Waterless Shampoo (50ml)

Since I've been trying to grow my hair I've been washing my hair less and less which mean i'm more and more reliant on dry shampoo.

I've use this on Shampoo Day plus 1 and loved it. It didn't feel like it had done anything but every time I looked in the mirror I was impressed that my hair didn't look like Shampoo day plus 1. I was less impressed Day plus 2 but as I have really greasy hair not much stands up to day 2.

1 x MARSK Mineral Eyeshadow in Rich List (1.2g)

I haven't tried this yet. I'm not sure I will as it's quite a yellow gold colour but if I do I will let you know.

1 x Rimmel BB Cream Matte (8ml tube, shade: Light)

This is too pale for me so it will be being passed on.

1 x Lindt Milk Chocolate Novelty Hollow Figure 10g

Sadly no photo, I ate it straight away!

1 x Latest in Beauty Pocket Mirror

A mirror always comes in handy. it'll be put in my handbag.

1 x Amphora Aromatics Orange & Clove Candle

I think in my last post I said I could have lived without this in the box as I'm not a massive fan of cloves but it does smell amazing.

I have now had a chance to burn this and I love it. We rarely light candles. I'm not sure why but I think this will be living in the bath room for when I have a chance to have a long soak in the bath.

I'm still toying with the idea of re-subscribing to one subscription service? Which boxes do you subscribe to and what do you think is the best value for money?

I've re-taken some of the picture with my new light cube what do we think? are the pictures with the red background better?
