Love Me Beauty (Edition Two) | December

Love Me Beauty (Edition Two) | December

I love the concept of beauty boxes; a box of goodies sent on a monthly basis what's not to love? Ive tried two different ones and each time it didn't end well; firstly Glossybox, i was subscribed to this for about 5 months and i decided to cancel it because i was tired of being constantly sent the same thing, especially rank perfume samples. The i decided to try Carmine because i kept hearing good things about it and i was very impressed but then it announced it was going to be joining forces with Glossybox so i never re-subscribed and after than i decided i just wasn't going to bother anymore.

Love Me Beauty (Edition Two) | December

However, for the past few months I've been reading endless positive reviews about Love Me Beauty and I've been fighting the temptation to subscribe for a while but overtime a new post was up (I'm looking at you Birds Words) id find myself more and more tempted - then last week i decided enough was enough, i wanted in and less then a week later i had my first box! One of the amazing things about love me beauty is that you can choose from 3 different editions - they are pretty similar but all vary a little bit so if one isn't quite what you are after one of the others might be, you can also choose to receive a random one so it's a surprise which you get or if you don't like the look of it at all you can skip it.

I love that its not obligatory to get it every month and that you have the option and i think that's one of the things that really made me want to subscribe because i wont have to receive one for the sake of it. I also really like that it doesn't have a proper box - as useful as the glossyboxes were to have sometimes, you end up with loads of empty ones lying around with no purpose so so far this is ticking all the right boxes for me!

I opted for edition two but to be honest, they all looked pretty good and i have to say so far I'm very impressed!

Love Me Beauty (Edition Two) | December

So inside edition two there is:

Lord & Berry Intensity Lipstick in Glazed Pink (Full Size)
This is a beautiful nude pink shade; i already own a good few nude pink shades but this shade is a little different to the others it's almost a 'your lips but better' kind of shade - it'll be ideal to wear for work, on natural days or even to pair with a really intense eye look. The Lord & Berry Lipsticks are enriched with macadamia oil and waterlily extract to form a really hydrating formula and to help keep the lips in tip top condition.

Lord & Berry Kiss Proof Lip Liner in Romantica (Full Size)
According to the little leaflet in the box i think this lip liner should actually be the shade 'Seduction' but i got Romantica instead - however, I'm not too fussed either way because this is a gorgeous pink colour - its almost a bubblegum pink, i have a couple if pink lip liners but i don't think i have any that are like this colour so regardless of the change in shade I'm pretty happy to have this anyway. Like the lipstick, this is enriched with macadamia oil and waterlily extract that helps create the ideal formula so its long lasting and creates the perfect lines - it can also be used as an all over lip colour too.

Headline Colours Nail Polish in Quicksand (Full Size)
Ive actually never heard of Headline before, at least i don't think i have but I'm looking forward to trying this out because the description that comes on the leaflet makes this sound so good - it claims that the formula boasts a high colour pigment for a rich and intense colour and gloss. It also apparently has a blend of plasticisers that allow the nails to flex without the colour cracking, chipping or flaking - this sounds way too good to be true so I'm looking forward to testing it out, especially in work because my nail polish never survives a shift. I like the look of this shade 'Quicksand' too, it's described as a light chocolate nude and i think this will be a great colour to wear during winter!

S5 Restore Cream (15ml Sample)
This is an anti-ageing moisturiser; it contains some natural proteins that claim to increase the hydration of the skin by up to 30% - during the colour month my skin always feels really dull and dry, so I'm definitely going to see if this is really as hydrating as it claims. It also claims to help the skin adapt to stress caused temperature fluctuations as well as protect against sun damage and radiation all whilst reducing and battling against wrinkles. I think if this is good it'd be one of those 'wonder products' but at the same I'm already a little cynical because of how many things it claims to do - too good to be true?

Rodial Glamtox Day (15ml Sample)
This is another moisturiser that's used to help combat wrinkles, this apparently has micro-injected hyaluronic and myrhh extract to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles whilst hydrating and protecting the skin against moisture loss. If that was it id have been quite annoyed at receiving to samples of pretty much the same thing but it also says this is a great base for make up and a lot of people really like using it as a primer so it's kind of redeemed itself a little bit.

I'm really happy with this box; it's a great selection of products, it arrived really quickly and i just generally love the concept of love me beauty! I'm already looking forward to see what next month's box is!

Are you subscribed to any beauty boxes?
