Beauty: Latest in Beauty - Glamour Beauty Power List 2014

A couple of weeks ago I received my first Latest In Beauty box, however this isn't one of their normal monthly boxes, they've teamed up with Glamour magazine and have put together the Glamour Beauty Power List 2014 box.  Each year, Glamour pick 100 beauty products for their Beauty Power List and this box features seven of those products for just £15.99.

Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish, available here 
This product needs no introduction. I'd tried this before years and years ago but have since found cheaper alternatives that work just as good. I do love the smell of this cleanser and it's great for getting stubborn make up off. This is a 30ml sample so it's perfect for taking away for the weekend.

Bourjois Volume One Second Mascara, available here
I haven't tried this out yet but I've seen great reviews so I'll be cracking it out once I've used up my current mascara. I've not used a mascara from Borujois for years, so I'm looking forward to trying it out.

Eyeko Mascara Off eye makeup remover wipes, available here
I'm not the greatest fan of wipes, but I've used these when I've made a mistake with my eyeliner before a night out and they're fantastic! They remove eyeliner and mascara with ease so there's no need to scrub at your delicate eyes. They leave behind an oily residue so I found that I had to wipe my eyes with a bit of water to remove it but I can't really fault them.

James Read Sleep Mask Tan, available here
I haven't used this yet as I couldn't work out whether it's for your face or body. The small sample size (25ml) made me think it's a facial tan and a quick google has shown I'm right. I'm not really fake tanning as often now it's getting chilly but I'll be trying this out next time I do. I usually leave my face out and just use a darker foundation but it's worth a try!

Maybelline ColorSensational Stripped Nudes, available here
I was expecting to get an unwearable pale nude shade, however I actually got the darkest shade 'Naked Brown'. Despite the name, it's actually more of a plum colour and I think I'll get a lot of wear out of it this Autumn/Winter. It needs a couple of coats before it's opaque but I love the colour and I think it's great for the 90s trend that's back at the moment.

Phillip Kingsley Daily Damage Defence spray, available here
Phillip Kingsley is best known for his Elasticiser which is used pre-shampoo. This spray is meant to be used daily to protect your hair from everyday damage as well as boosts the hair's overall condition and adds shine. 

Laura Mercier Foundation Primer, available here
This generous 30ml sample is more than half the size of the full size product, making it worth a whopping £17 which is more than I paid for the box. I've never tried a product from Laura Mercier before and I'd just finished up a primer so I was keen to try this. So far, I've been loving it. I haven't broken out from it (a few primers have been awful on my skin) and it's helped to keep my makeup on all day. It doesn't disguise pores or smoothe out the skin but it really helps my foundation stay for longer.

As well as the beauty products, there was also a code in the box for a year's digital subscription to the magazine. This was a fantastic box and I'm now thinking of subscribing to Latest in Beauty. If you're interested in getting this box, you can find all of the details here


  1. love your box!! ;) xxxx

    If you want to do a swap on the lipsticks I'm game.

  2. I've tried the Laura Mercier primer, it's excellent. I've also tried the Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish which was ok, I liked using the cloth though.

  3. I was torn if to get this box or not. Wish I had now - looks great.


  4. You really got a good selection in that box!! Wish I got it!! x

  5. That's a real bargain. I'm not into subscription boxes as I'm too fussy and like my favourite items. But they're definitely good value.

  6. You've got a great selection in that box. I keep going back and forth as to whether I'm going to bite the bullet and finally get a subscription of my own!
