Love Me Beauty Box | August 2014

Hello My Lovelies, 

I hope you are all doing well and had a lovely bank holiday Monday! Sunday night I returned from a weekend stay at Reading Festival. I think it deserves a whole post in itself so I won't ramble too much about it but ohh my goodness it was incredible! I am paying for it a little bit now as I have come down with a really awful sickness bug / cold...gross I know haha! I haven't got time to be sick right now as I have so much going on at work and at home so I literally need every minute of the day.

 It is that time of the month again when I bring you the brand new Love Me Beauty box, I know it is coming at you a little late this month but I have been away for the majority of August...Never-the-less it is here now and I hope you enjoy! This is my fourth month trying out the subscription box and I am still absolutely loving them...I am always so impressed with the content. If you are unsure who Love Me Beauty are, they are a monthly subscription box priced at only £10 per box (plus p&p) and every month they contain four to five products from various beauty and lifestyle brands which can be seen on their website here. Each month, you will receive an email to let you know that the boutique is open and that is when you get to choose which box you would like to try. You can head straight over and choose between the beauty box menus available. Give or take each menu will have 1 to 2 star products and 3 travel sized samples. You have the option to sign up for 1 month, 3 months, 9 months or even 12 months and you can cancel your subscription at any time or even skip a month with no charge if nothing in that months box takes your fancy.

This month I decided to go with the third menu option again. Like every single month I am always so torn between the menus as I am always so indecisive about which box to try. In the past I have always received five product in my box, this month there were only four. Love Me Beauty say it does vary between four and five, however, I think this is down to the fact that there are four full sized products in this months box rather than samples. 

Oriflame Swedish Spa Beauty Wonder Oil | RRP £8.45

Last year I was introduced to the world of wonder oil treatments and since then I have loved incorporating them into my beauty routine whenever I can. This Oriflame Swedish Spa Beauty Wonder Oil  is a lavish, versatile multi-use oil with Hydracare+, antioxidant, tonic ginger oil, nourishing coconut oil, vitamin E and sweet almond oil to beautify and improve texture. This wonder oil can be used for massages, moisturising, bathing or even as a pre-shampoo treatment to revitalise your hair. Who doesn't love multi-use products?! So far I am really loving this product, it smells divine and the floral accent on the packaging is so cute! 

Marsk Mineral Eye Shadow in Lucky Penny | RRP £14.49

Can you notice a reoccurring theme with rose gold and my blog? Well just read my little bio on the right hand side and you will understand haha. The picture is not doing the shade justice because 'Lucky Penny' (adorable name) is a coppery rose gold shade...the kind of shade that I loveee! Marsk is a completely new brand to me to give a try but like I always say the whole point of subscription boxes are to introduce you to products you might not necessarily have given a try. The Marsk mineral eye shadows are 100% natural, mineral based loose powder that are strictly cruelty free and available in a range of striking shades that offer endless colour possibilities for a professional makeup effect. Pigments are fabulous because you can use them in so many ways. You can use pigments wet or dry to take your look from subtle to dramatic in a blink of an eye. The only thing with pigments I always worry about is the fall out so use sparingly lovelies! 

Mirabella Lip Luster Liner in Shy | RRP £10.50

I only own a few lip liners in my makeup collection so I was delighted to see one pop up in this months box...all of the shades available were beautiful but 'Shy' really stood out to me. Yet again the brand Mirabella is completely new to me but having a browse through their website they have a lovely line of beauty products and they are based in LA my favourite place in the entire world! When first opening the lip liner I was completely blown away by the beautiful shade and also how creamy and pigmented it was. The shade 'Shy' is a gorgeous pinky nude shade perfect for everyday or to glam up an evening look with a Kim K inspired lip! 

A La Carte Smudge Proof Eyebrow Definer in Blonde | RRP £23.00

A La Carte is a brand I have heard of throughout the blogging community but have never got round to trying. You know my obsession with brow products lately so I was extremely excited to give this one a try. I was a little wary at first as each box contained the same shade 'Blonde' but it does come of more of a light brown shade which matches me quite nicely. I have quite fair brownish hair and I struggle to find a brow product that matches me without being too dark or too light. I would say this is a close match to the Rimmel Eyebrow Pencil in Hazel. I had never used a felt tip like pen to fill in my brows before so it was an experience, however, A La Carte mention how you can create the optical illusion of individual brow hairs with this pen...sounds fancy! Either way I will definitely be getting my use out of this product...I use a felt tip liner from Collection Love religiously so it will be nice to mix things up and see how this works as a liner too! 

So, this are the goodies included in this months subscription box, what do you think? The value this month was again amazing...considering you are receiving all full sized products and the A La Carte Eyebrow Definer is £23 alone you are getting an array of goodies for £10.00. Yet again, I already can't wait for next months box to be released! If you like the look of this months box you can still get gold of one for yourself to try here. I hope you all enjoyed looking into this months Love Me Beauty box!
