Latest in Beauty really do some of the best beauty boxes on the market, and their recent collaboration with everyone’s favourite hit music radio station, Capital FM is gorgeous! The team at Capital FM know a thing on how to get star style, and have created the perfect backstage beauty collection, Introducing the new Capital Beauty Box*. Worth over £48, for £14.95 (+ free p&p) the box comes with 9 products and features top brands like Stila, Rimmel, Collection, Burts Bees and Pixi, the box is the perfect spring treat.
What I love about the box is that you can create a whole day or night look from the products (minus base products) and the look is really fresh for spring! For the eyes, the Collection Eyes Uncovered Palette was the product I was most excited to try as I have heard SO many amazing things about it, and so far it is yet to disappoint. Akin to the UD Naked palettes and shades, you can create a neutral day look, or smoke things out for a night time look. I love a mascara, so when I saw the latest Collection Lengthening Mascara in the box I was super happy. I am a know mascara junkie and I love them. This one says what it does on the tin and lengthens well, but doesn’t add as much volume as I would like but it doesn’t actually claim to do this so I’ll let that one slide for now. To finish off the eyelook, the inclusion of a Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eyeliner in Black Amethyst is perfect. I love these Stila liners as they are creamy and smooth but once they dry, just do not budge! I have been loving lip tints and balms recently, and Burts Bees are my go to lip tint brand, and the Burts Bees Lip Shimmer in Rhubarb is gorgeous. The name shimmer may sound a little off putting, but I found this ‘shimmer’ to simply be tiny bit of light reflecting pieces that once on the lips just makes lips look fuller, smoother and adds a slight gloss. Pixi is another brand I am yet to try, but the inclusion of the Pixi Lip Blush in No.5 Energy was definitely a welcome addition to the box. With a felt tip type nib, the formula is super moisturising and once dried leaves a gorgeous tinted stain. The lip blush also smells divine, slightly like a peach jam, mmm. I love a nail polish and in the box there is also a lovely Rimmel 60 Seconds Super Shine Nail Polish by Rita Ora in 300 Glaston-Berry a lovely bright coral-red. To finish off the fresh summer look, the sample size Jimmy Choo ‘Flash’ fragrance is a perfect summer scent, and I love these sample perfumes, they’re perfect for throwing in your beach bag or a clutch for a night out!
There were also two extra non-beauty items that I thought were fab. The first being some STYLONDON Jewellery Inspired Temporary Tattoos in Gold. I’ve been seeing these foil inspired temporary tattoos everywhere lately and i’ve been wanting to get my mitts on some for the summer so I was really happy to see these in the box, I can’t wait to whip these out when it gets a little warmer. And lastly, 4 sided nail buffers are just the handiest things ever.
