Lux Box review: July 2012

July Lux Box* was a little bit late :) but when it finally arrived I was really happy with the selection of products. My favourite must be the beautiful Inika eyeliner in Peacock Blue. I am a big fan of Inika and reviewed some of their make up already. If you want to have a look, click here
I was also very excited to try the Magnifibres and the BRTC Gold Caviar BB cream.
Overall I am really, really happy with the box, the variety of products is amazing!

 Magnifibres Brush On False Lashes
Magnifibres is the perfect solution for those who love long, big, captivating eye lashes but don't like the look and hassle of false lashes.
The completely natural fibres are easily applied in between two layers of your favourite mascara creating length and volume beyond belief.

This product was the one I was the most excited about and the one I tried first. Very interesting idea! 
If you find a good mascara to use it with it will make your lashes look much longer and add volume. 
I will be reviewing it separately soon, because it is something totally new to me and I really like it.
Full size costs £21.

Inika Certified organic Eyeliner
Rich in colour and gentle with realstayability Certified Organic, our creamy Liners glide on easily to deliver an even depth of colour. Perfect - for even the most sensitive of eyes.
Have a Play! You'll fall in love - For added intensity add a sweep of one of our Eye Shadows over the top and see what happens

Another product I was happy to see. I love INIKA cosmetics and  own one of their eyeliners already. The consistency is lovely and the colour payoff is really good. The shade I got is Peacock Blue. 
It is a vibrant shade of blue and I am in love with it. I used it in one of my makeup looks already.
It is a full size products worth £11.75

Yana Cosmetics Foundation
A lightweight, creamy, foundation, full coverage, airbrush look, suitable for all skin types. This foundation is not tested on animals, non comedogenic, blendable and long lasting.

I really like the consistency and the coverage of this foundation, but the shade I received is very, very light, so it doesn't suit my skin tone.  I will use it to mix with my darker foundation though :)

Gatineau Essential Skin Corrector

Essential Skin Corrector is a corrective cream to smooth out the first signs of wrinkles and improve radiance and comfort.A comprehensive anti-ageing shield designed to offer complete protection to the skin against internal and external aggressions which cause accelerated ageing.

 This products is the most expensive one in the box. I really like to receive high end brand samples, because normally I wouldn't be able to afford to buy the products myself. The full size pot costs £69, so the sample I got is worth over £20, which is brilliant. That's why I love beauty boxes, you get to try some lovely brands and most of the time the box value is five times higher than it's price :)

The Gold Caviar BB Cream is multi functional skincare cream great for anti aging, lightening, sun protection (SPF 50), wrinkle repair, cover and moisturizing. Made from real caviar extracts, this luxurious bb cream will help give a radiant and natural, healthy skintone.

I really like this BB cream. I received two samples. It gives medium coverage and looks very natural on my skin. It feels very luxurious and comes with SPF50. AMAZING! Full size costs $28.

  3. Wow! I'm so impressed with what you got in this box! I just got my second glossy box and i'm so disappointed with it. Might be changing to the Lux box in future as it looks far more high quality!
