The Latest In Beauty Glamour Edit (July 2014)

Well isn't this a box jam packed full of goodness?! Seriously this is such an epic box, everyone needs to get on it - it's £16.95 for more than £86 worth of stuff! EIGHTY-SIX POUNDS! That's crazy!! Ok let's stop with the exclamation points and take a proper look at what exactly is inside Latest in Beauty's most recent Glamour Edit box.

Illamasqua Glamore lipstick in Cherub (worth £18.50)
This was one of the main reasons I bought this box, a lippy from the new Illamasqua Glamore Nude Collection! How awesome is that?! I don't even think they're out yet. I got, Cherub, a coral based nude that would really give some life to deeper skin tones. Unfortunately, it's not quite working for me yet. I know you can't help what shade you get but something like Rosepout would have sat better. I'm hoping maybe layering it with an orange toned gloss will make it a little more wearable for myself. The formula is beautiful though! Super satiny soft, glides on the lips seamlessly - I'm super impressed! Especially as this is my first ever Illamasqua product, let alone lipstick!

Crabtree & Evelyn nail polish in Apple (worth £6.00)
I never new Crabtree & Evelyn did nail polish! It's always been a brand for hand lotion, body lotion and bits like that as opposed to makeup. I always enjoy getting polishes, especially new brands, because I like to try out other formulas. Apple is a true apple red with a slight shimmer running through it - a classic shade. I'm not sure it's my kind of thing, I'm not one for shimmer in polishes, but I have a feeling my Mom is going to love this! A reasonable RRP at £6 too!

Bourjois Cream Blush in 02 Healthy Glow (worth £7.99)
Sticking on the makeup, I bloody love this one! I got my first Bourjois Cream Blush in the Latest in Beauty box collab with The British Beauty Blogger last month, but in 01 a cool toned peach. I really quite like that but the Bourjois Cream Blush in 02 Healthy Glow is way more up my street! I can't express how excited I am about this one! The peachy/apricot tone is really, really similar to my 'Ultimate Blusher' from Rimmel so I'm really looking forward to using this - adore!

Magnifibres (worth £16.00)
This one both intrigues and scares me. Magnifibres is essentially a step between two coats of mascara - apply mascara, apply these teeny weeny fibres, then another layer of mascara and tons of length will be added. I tried something similar from Sheer Cover earlier in the year but was really nervous because I'm a contact lens wearer - I didn't want those tiny fibres getting into my eyes. Although, for special occasions I do think these would work quite well as long as you're careful. I'm going to give them a whirl soon so will report back... fingers crossed! However, another full size product?! Amazing!

DHC Deep Cleansing Oil (worth £4.50)
Now, to remove all that slap - DHC Deep Cleansing Oil is dabomb. Yep, I said it. I've raved about this beauty before and was pleasantly surprised when I saw this in the box as my other mini is on it's last legs. This'll do nicely for holiday! It's a gorgeous silky oil that removes even waterproof mascara with ease and doesn't leave a nasty oil film behind. Again, a full size mini that you can purchase alone - not just a brand sample.

Hawaiian Tropic Satin Protection SPF30 (worth approx. £6.75)
Another full size mini - not a brand sample size - is the Hawaiian Tropic Satin Protection lotion with SPF30. I'm really excited to use this on holiday - it'll be perfect for when we go out and about and can't be bothered to carry a huge bottle around. I love that it's a high SPF and it smells incredible, as most HT products do! A really lovely addition.

Rimmel Instant Tan BB Perfector in Medium Matte (worth £6.99)
Another full size!!!! Spoilt or what?! For when the sun doesn't make an appearance and SPF isn't necessary, this will do the trick. I've seen a few bloggers talk about this recently and raved about it, however they said the medium is really quite dark so I'm a little nervous about using it. However, it washes off so it won't be a disaster for too long if it doesn't go well. I'm glad it's not shimmery though, I can't get my head around shimmery fake tan!

Velvotan tanning mitt (worth £2.99)
This has come at just the right time - I was in serious need of a new mitt! I'm going to try and remember to rinse this one through as my other ones get grubby so quickly because I tend to... forget. Ooops. The Velvotan mitt does look pretty nice though, smooth texture so it should give an even finish. A mitt is kind of just a mitt though, I guess.

Toni & Guy Volume Plumping Whip (worth £7.19)
Oooh this looks interesting! I'm all for finding new ways to get volume in my hair and the Toni & Guy Volume Plumping Whip really intrigues me - a whip? I'm not sure what to expect, is it a mousse? Is it a thick cream? We shall see! And I will definitely report back. Can I just say... yet another full size?! 

All in all this is truly an incredible box! Every single thing is a full size product, some are minis yes but the way I see it, if I can buy it as that mini, that's a full size. To me, samples are in sachets, unpurchaseable or teeny perfume sprays - you get the idea. Want to get your hands on it? Simply visit the Latest in Beauty website here and snap it up quick, this baby will definitely go fast!
