The Glamour Beauty Edit box

After seeing all the other beauty bloggers getting the newest The Glamour Beauty Edit I had to jump onto the bandwagon! I got the one before this and I loved it and for the price £16.95 it's a bargain.

All together you receive 9 products all from different brands. With there being such a massive selection it doesn't even matter if there is 1 or 2 products you don't like. Myself I probably won't get much use out of the face oil and fake tan, but doesn't mean they won't come in handy at some point! Some products alone are £15-£20 to buy seperatly anyway.

This is one of the things I was most excited about, I've seen it on the airplane (is that how you spell it?) but didn't know much about it! It is about £18 to buy depending where you buy it from, so it is a steal in this box. I'm glad it came with instructions though.. after opening it and seeing the fluffy wand I was quite confused! To use it you put your mascara on as normal, then apply the fluffy wand over it while it's still wet and again apply another layer of your mascara.

This is the difference it made to my eyes (left before and right is after):

Rimmel Sun Shinner tan £6.99, with it being a medium I think it's going to be too dark for me to wear in the winter time (as I'll be even whiter then). I've used a few Rimmel instant tans in the past and liked them, but I'm just not much of a fake tan person! I've learnt to embrace my glowing white skin (ha). But if I was to use one this would definitely be one of my first choices for a wash off tan.

DHC Deep Cleansing Oil £8.00 - £21.00 depending on the size you buy, seeing as they sell this on Escentual I know it will be good. I'm currently going through a skin nightmare so I am scared to use it at the moment. (I will do a post on it once I get round to it). But from using it on the back of my hand I find it soaks in well and doesn't leave an awful residue like some oil products do.

I really could have done with this last weekend when I burnt myself to a crisp! But now I do have it I'm happy, Hawaiian Tropic has such a lovely smell. It's around £13.99 to buy, so again a bargain in this box. It soaks into your skin so well and doesn't leave your skin feeling greasy. If you are going on holiday I would grab some of this, it's also 1/2 price at Superdrug at the moment too.

I've never tried Crabtree & Evelyn products before and for only £6.00 for a nail varnish they aren't expensive either! It's really pigmented so it only takes 2 coats and is a lovely vibrant red with a little shimmer in it. There is 4 for 3 on the Crabtree & Evelyn products on their website at the moment too.

I love Toni & Guy products, but haven't tried that much of a variety and to be honest I don't use many hair products bar the obvious ones. This does have a nice smell and consistency though, but I don't think I will get much use from it! It is £7.19 from Boots, so not exactly breaking the bank if you want to try it anyway!

I love love love lipsticks and have always wanted to try Illamasqua products, but there is nowhere to buy them where I live! This is what sold me the whole box. I'm not sure if everyone got the same colour but I got 'Starkers' £18.50, which is a nice nude colour! It's a similar colour to my Mac Mehr but this has more of a sheen finish. This totally lived up to my expectations!

Next is 'The Original Tanning Mitt' £2.99, again seeing as I don't use fake tan much I won't get much use out of it. But from all the different mitts I have used this one feels so much better quality then the spongey side you usually get. 

Last is Bourjois cream blush in Nude Velvet, it's such a beautiful peachy tone. I've never tried a cream blush before cause I find they make my foundation go patchy (maybe I wear too much). This has such a light feeling to it though and doesn't feel like I'm put some form of face paint on! Could also be used as a light gloss for your lips too.

Did anyone else get this box? What did you think/get? I loved it.
