Standout products from the latest LuxBox: Inika Rosehip Creme Colour and more...

Hi everyone. I know that many bloggers stopped reviewing beauty boxes, (so did I actually) but I wanted to mention some of the products I received in my February Lux Box*. 

 I really love INIKA, so when I opened the box and noticed the Inika Lip and Cheek Creme Colour, I was a happy bunny! It costs £22, so more than the box itself and I think that it is worth the price tag. I am really impressed with it and I love using it as lip colour and as a blusher. It is creamy, easy to blend and nicely pigmented. The shade is called Rosehip and it is a bright red with coral undertones. 

Another product from the box, I fell in love with is The Vintage Cosmetic Company Retractable Lip Brush (£7). It looks very expensive and it is a perfect size to keep in your makeup bag. The shape of the brush is ideal for applying lipstick, so it quickly became my favourite lip brush.  Another lip product in the box was a red lip pencil by Colour Me Beautiful in shade Crimson. I used it to line my lips, before applying the Inika Creme Colour and it feels soft and creamy.

I also liked the Exfoliating Pomegranate Murad face mask and I was happy to see it in the box. The only product I didn't like is the Ylang Ylang EDP by Balm Balm. I just don't like this scent at all. Overall, I am very impressed with the box and I am excited to see the contents of the March one.

Are you subscribed to a beauty box at the moment? What do your think about the whole concept?
