If you didn’t think I got enough products in my advent calendars… here I am effectively unboxing a smaller one! My mumsi bought me one of the Latest in Beauty boxes for my Christmas present and I love them! If you haven’t heard of Latest in Beauty, it’s a beauty box service where they curate boxes together and you buy them. So there’s no contract and it’s very non-commital, but you do also know what’s in it before you get it so there’s not a lot of surprise. But they do also do a subscription service, where you can pick your items out of a selection of things.
The box I have for you here is the Fabulous Little Black Box. Launched for Black Friday, in partnership with Fabulous Magazine, this box is full of 12 amazing products and comes at the cost of £45.
So let’s show you what’s in the box…
Bare by Vogue Williams Self Tan Foam
Not a massive self tan person… but maybe in May when you start getting your legs out and they’re painfully white! It says it cindlues Goji Berry, Oatmeal, Chamomile, Pomegranate and Grapefruit, so sounds like it smells delicious!
Charles Worthington Shine Plex Vitamin C Serum
We all know I’m a massive fan of my John Frieda Frizz Ease Serum, but I’m just about to finish my current tube of it, so before I pick up another one I’ll totally try this out! It has a lot to live up to, but this description sounds amazing; nourishing and lightweight, the serum instantly gives smoother, frizz-free hair with a luminous shine that lasts all day
Sunday Rain Sleep Mask Watermelon
I feel like I have face masks coming out of my ears, but I somehow don’t have an overnight mask?! You just lather a good layer on, go to sleep, wake up in the morning, and (usually) your skin feels amazing! Can’t wait!
Bare Minerals Mineralist Lipstick in Honesty
Described as a hydrating and saturated colour lipstick this sounds wight up my street! This is a cute little sample, but I rarely use up lipsticks and I can’t wait to try this! The colour is somewhere between a nude and a pink and it looks gorgeous!
Laura Mercier Caviar Mascara
I have so many mini mascaras to try now… but I’m so excited! This sounds like it’s going to be a really good volumising mascara, and I can’t wait to give it a go… I also don’t think I’ve tried anything from Laura Mercier before either…
NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Do Me Baby
I have wanted to try one of these for AGES! Like I add one to my basket, and then usually something (i.e. money) makes me take it out again. But this colour is gorgeous and totally one of the shades I’d have picked up! So excited!
Eyeko Eye Do Liquid Eyeliner
Another thing I LOVE is the Eyeko Black Eyeliners! they’re really great and easy to work with! They do dry up fairly quickly, but also still a great eyeliner! Can’t wait!
Skin Chemist Rose Quartz Youth Defense Lip Plump
I think this is one of those lipglosses that plumps up your lips. Not sure I’ve ever really bee for them, but I can’t wait to try it nonetheless!
GlamGlow Youthmud Face Mask
I’ve either had this exact mask, or something very similar from the same brand, and I LOVED it! So I’m beyond excited I have this back in my collection, even if only in a sample. It’s a really great purifying face mask!
Garnier Micellar Water
This is pretty much my baby by now. I use it on the daily and have for about 6 years now. I always buy it and I always will… and it’s handy to have a sample bottle to decant into as my previous one got a little mank and I chucked it!
Sweed Lashes in Ramina
Can’t say I’ve ever really been a lash person before, but these actually look really nice! And they’re super light and look like they’d be really easy to apply… who knows, maybe 2021 is the year for fake eyelashes!
L’Occitane Invigorating Face & Eye Mask Pod
Mine is already in the fridge and I can’t wait to use it! Described as a sorbet-like mask, it’s full of vitamin C and apparently helps minimise under eye puffiness and brighten your complexion!
What a box! I can’t wait to get cracking and start using all the products I got from my advent calendars as well as from this box! Maybe I’ll try things out and do a bit of a ‘favourite products’ from them in Feb/March! Hope you’re ready for reviews!
As a side note, unless I posted everyday all year, I’d never get through reviews of everything, so do keep an eye on my Instagram or in my monthly empties as they will pop up there if they don’t here!
