Latest In Beauty: The Dream Box


So for ages I have contemplated on subscribing the the monthly beauty box subscription, which one I could not decide. This month there has been some good collabrations too so I thought I would treat myself to just the odd box, however, because of the variation and it was pot luck I didn't want to be disappointed. Then I luckily came across Latest In Beauty with their colabration with British Beauty Blogger to form The Dream Box, I immediately purchased without any thought. Luckily I did as they sold out first and being limited edition I was very lucky!

I patiently awaited arrival of my delivery, frankly I was scared that I would have to wait until after the Bank Holiday - so long to wait! Have to admit though I was a little surprised at how small the box was, but they jam packed filled it with some really great goodies. Here is the beauty itself:

And now of course for the most important and exciting bit, the contents:

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara - RRP £19
Charlotte Tilbury K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipstick Sample in So Marilyn - RRP £23
Bourjois Cream Blush in 03 - RRP £7.99
Essie Nail Varnish in Fashion Playground - RRP £7.99
Makeup Revolution Awesome Eye Palette - RRP £4
Lola Cosmetics Kabuki Brush - RRP $35
Benefit It's Potent Eye Cream Sample - RRP £25.50
REN Satin Perfection BB Cream Sample - RRP £26
Bee Good Honey & Wild Water Mint Cleansing Water - RRP £10
Elemis Treat Your Feet Foot Cream Travel Size - RRP £6
Janjira Hand Wash Sample - RRP £16
L'Occitane Immoretelle Divine Lotion Sample - RRP £42
Kneipp Herbal Baths - RRP £7.95
La Roche-Posay Thermal Spring Water Spray - RRP £3.50
Roger & Gallet Gingembre Rouge Sample - RRP £16.00

So all these fantastic products some full size and some sample, this box only cost £19.95 literally the mascara itself costs the same pretty much so I am very pleased and get to try many brands that I have wanted to for a while. Not only fantastic for price but it came with a fair few discount codes to use so will be sure to make good use of them :)

So a close up on some of the beauty bits that I have already tried within a day -

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara I have tried and safe to say I have fallen head over heels in love and am already planning a review for later this week so won't talk too much about it but you have to get it!!! :)

Bourjois Cream Blush in 03, not really tried cream blushes before but luckily I got the shade I would have chosen if brought myself. Can't wait to try on face but it did take 4 coats to get the look effect in the picture on my arm. Excuse the tattoo!

Charlotte Tilbury Lipstick Sample in So Marilyn is just amazingly cute, I love the way of application. I have not tried this yet as didn't want to waste on a lazy day but follow me on instagram here and I will upload when I try.

Essie Nail Varnish in Fashion Playground, as a lover of nail varnish of course I was excited as I don't tend to treat myself to expensive nail varnish like these but my favourite colour is mint, so I couldn't of got a better colour, it's a tiny bit shimmery and dried within minutes. Very impressed! Although, I literally have only one hand painted at the moment purely for the purposes as this picture, as you do beauty blogger style haha.

So there you have it, a very happy blogger with my first ever beauty box purchase and I feel no other will compete with this. I can't wait to try and explore more of these, if I have some absolute favourites like the Too Faced Mascara then I will do a full review here later on. For the bargain price as well! Thanks for a wonderful box British Beauty Blogger and Latest In Beauty :) What do you think of the contents?

If I were to consider a monthly subscription, what one do you think I should go for? As I am at a loss with mixed reviews.

Love, Gemma xo

  2. This looks great, fab post!

  3. I am so jealous you managed to get one! As soon as I had the money they had sold out! I love the nail varnish! With subscription boxes I found Glossybox to be the best one as I didn't get on with Birchbox at all, but the best thing to do is buy one of each and try for yourself :)
