Love Me Beauty | August

Love Me Beauty | August

After last month's edition, i was really hoping that Love Me Beauty would really pull it out of the bag and impress me. Last month's felt very limited and very repetitive so it was a very pleasant surprise to see some new brands featured and i really feel like i got my monies worth.

Bare Minerals Skin Longevity Vital Power Infusion | 10 Credits
I actually thought this was some kind of make up primer but it's actually a moisturiser. Even though, it's only 7.5ml, i really like the packaging of this sample - I'm not really sure why, it just looks and feels really good quality. It claims to infuse the skin with moisture, reawaken youthful skin and enhance skin's resilience. I've only tried this once so far so i can't comment on it properly but i feel like I'm going to really like this, it has such a light formula and it absorbed into the skin really nicely so I'm looking forward to using it more.

Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick in Cathedral | 20 Credits
I've never tried any of the Studded Kiss Lipsticks from Kat Von D and i do really like that they feature a lot of Kat Von D as I'm hoping to pick up some products from her range when i go to London next month and this gives me the perfect opportunity to try some things out. First things first, this packaging is stunning, i love the studded detail on the casing - it has such a punk/rocky edge to it. I was expecting to recieve the shade Mercy, that was the shade that was on the website but they've actually sent me Cathedral instead. Luckily, I've tried this already and i adore the shade - it's a stunning plummy/brown tone and i feel like I'm going to get a lot of wear out of this, especially during Autumn!

Buxom Lash Mascara | 15 Credits
I'm so excited to try this as I've never tried anything from Buxom. It promises to intensely volumise and to separate and define lashes, which if true sounds perfect now I've not actually tried this out so i can't make any comments on what it's like but i do plan on doing a individual post so keep an eye out for that if you want to see how i get on with it.

Buxom Full On Lip Polish in Dolly | 15 Credits.
Can we just comment on how bloody stingy the size of this lip gloss is. Realistically, I'm never going to use it up so in that respect it's not a big deal but in comparison to other lip products I've received in previous beauty boxes, it's ridiculously small. I don't wear lip gloss all that much any more but i really wanted to try something from Buxom so i decided to try it. Its in the shade Dolly which is mauve-y pink - it applies quite sheer but gives a nice hint of colour to the lips. It's a plumping lip gloss so it tingles on the lips, I'm not a big fan of the tingly 'plumping effect' so I'm not entirely sure how i feel about this lip gloss yet.

Aromatherapy Associates Perfect Partners | 0 Credits
There was a few items for 0 Credits that you could add to your basket, i added a couple of things and got this Aromatherapy Associates Perfect Partners; I've never tried bath oils before so i was quite intrigued by them, especially the 'Relax Deep' - my sleeping pattern is horrendous, so I'm always interested in trying things that will help relax me and help me sleep better so I'm very intrigued to try this out and see how it works. There's also a 'Relax Morning' oil, I'm not too sure what the difference is between these two oils as they both have a similar relaxing spa-like scent but I'm looking forward to trying them both out.

What do you think of this months Love Me Beauty?
