I practically get excited when the postman rings the bell when he's delivering a replacement part for our lawnmower, so you can imagine my elation when he comes to the door with a beauty box in tow. I really love the idea of them - a round-up of carefully selected products from brands you adore and brands you may have never tried before, all prettily packaged and with a 'you know what, that's pretty darn good!' price tag. What's not to love?
I've teamed up with Cohorted to talk you through The Black Edition Beauty Box (£35) from April and May, as well as give you the chance to win a box for yourself as well as a full-size 100ml bottle of the Guerlain Eau De Shamilar Eau De Toilette perfume and three HJ Manicure Nail Polishes. All you need to do is complete the Rafflecopter form below and you'll be in the running!
The Black Edition Beauty Box (April)
An item that I truly love from this box and one that you'll no doubt be seeing on my channel in the near future in a favourites video is the MAC Patentpolish Lip Pencil in 'Kittenish' (£17.50), which adds the prettiest flush of moisturising pink colour and reminds me of my beloved Revlon ColorBurst Kissable Balm Stain in 'Honey'. If you're more a bright lip lover, the MDM Flow Lipstick in 'Panther' (£18) packs a seriously hot Barbie-like punch and I find the scent addictive! You all know I like my nails to feel as strong and healthy as possible, so the inclusion of the Gold Elements Nail Care Kit (£29.49) was a welcome addition and I've been using the cuticle oil religiously. Possibly one of the prettiest bath products I've ever seen, the Miss Patisserie Bath Melt (£3.99) definitely brings a whole lot of cute to this box and the milk, almond and honey scent is right up my street. Does anyone else remember the White Musk fragrance from The Body Shop? Well, they've added a modern twist with the White Musk Libertine Eau De Parfum (£24) which has been taking me back a decade with its sensual musky blend.
The Black Edition Beauty Box (May)
You know when you get a beauty box and you think 'this box is worth it simply for this one product?' I had the exact reaction when I opened the May edition and saw theBalm Balm Voyage Vol. 2 Palette (£30). With nine of the most gorgeous shades (I was literally ooh-ing and ahh-ing out loud) as well as a bronzer, two blushes, a highlighter (you all know how much I love Mary-Lou Manizer!) and two lipsticks. I can't deal. The box also contains another gem that I've fallen completely in love with, and that's the Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick (£23) in 'Canvas'. A little on the drying side, but it does stay put for hours on end and the colour is a perfect Kylie J dark pink 90s nude. The HJ Manicure Nail Polish (£9.50) in 'Lavender' isn't quite my colour, but if you love purples or want to up the amp for spring I think this would look really pretty on fingers or toes. I find little perfume samples so useful for my handbag and so I was really happy to see the glamorous and beautiful scent Jimmy Choo Jimmy Choo Eau De Parfum (£41) - especially as it's a teeny mini version of the actual perfume!
Wishing you all the best of luck with the giveaway!
