'Latest in Beauty' Box: Try before you buy

I have finally finished my third year at uni (not my final year) and decided to treat myself to a few little bits. I love coming home to lots of packages its like an early Christmas! Sad I know. I was particularly excited about this little 'beauty' that was waiting for me. Glamour have teamed up with Latest in Beauty to create this amazing box!

Everyone has been reviewing beauty boxes and the sense I have got is that they were great until they became so popular companies could start putting in normal products people weren't excited about. However, Latest in Beauty is not like this.

Latest in Beauty's website is great. Unlike other beauty boxes you know what you're getting, but once they're gone they're gone. Their policy is 'try before you buy' which is a better I think. It's great because it doesn't need you to subscribe, you can just buy when you fancy the products or have the money. 

It's £14.95 inc delivery, which is a little more than most boxes on the market which suck you in by the £10 price but it doesn't include the £2.95 postage. I personally think that paying an additional £2 it is much better value for money. It arrives in a cute black sleek box and the products are wrapped in a cream tissue paper with the glamour logo sticker on it. It's classic although I have seen some prettier boxes which are more colourful and 'pretty.' However it is just to store all the pretty products!
This specific box was a collaboration of latest in beauty with Glamour magazine with a value they claim of £65! It includes:

-Loreal Super Liner Gel Intenza (full size)
-Batiste dry shampoo (sample)
-Benefit the Porefessional (sample)
-Ginvera green tea exfoliating marvel gel (sample)
-Revlon nail enamel Coral (Full size)
-Jinnylash strip eyelashes (full size)
-The vintage cosmetic company tweezers
-Stila Lip Glaze (Sample)
-John Frieda Frizz-ease original formula (sample)

Have you heard of them before? Have a look here and see if anything takes your fancy. They do have other boxes available to try too! I personally, can't wait to test and review these products!
