Love Me Beauty Box June 2014 (Birthday Edition)


This month, Love Me Beauty Box* celebrates it's 1st Birthday and after having a look at the June menus, I opted for Edition 1. The box features five products and four of them are full size. I was actually very excited about the selection of products this month, but was I impressed with them? Let's find out.

My June box contained:

MONTAGNE JEUNESSE BRAZILIAN MUD FABRIC MASQUE (RRP £1) 
I love sheet masks and I am a big fan of Montagne Jeunesse, so I am excited to try this products, despite it's low retail price. I usually prefer more expensive brands in beauty boxes, but this deep cleansing formula is right up my street. 

MODEL CO SHINE ULTRA LIP GLOSS IN ‘FAIRY FLOSS’ (RRP £12) 
I like the design of the gloss and the mirror on the side is very practical! I expected it to be slightly more pigmented, but it looks nice on the lips and doesn't feel sticky. 

NYX COSMETICS NAIL POLISH IN SHADE WINTER (RRP £3) 
Doesn't the bottle of this polish look amazing? It is quite luxurious for the price tag and reminds me of Deborah Lippmann offerings. The polish itself isn't as impressive as the bottle, due to the colour. The formula is lovely, easy to apply and quick drying, but shade Winter is very sheer and I needed 4-5 coats for an opaque finish. It can also be used as a shimmer top coat, but I would prefer a different shade.

BEAUTY UK EYE SHADOW PALETTE IN ‘EARTH CHILD’ (RRP £3.99) 
The last full size product in my box is this budget palette and unfortunately it was a little bit disappointing. Most of the shades lack pigmentation and I found them hard to work with. I think that it would be perfect for those who aren't brave with eye shadows and like them quite sheer, (like my mum), but not a good choice for someone who loves super pigmented formulas. 

URBAN VEDA PURIFYING DAY CREAM (10ml sample worth £3.00, RRP £14.99 for 50ML
I haven't tried Urban Veda products, but I am looking forward to giving this day cream a go. The formula contains detoxifying botanicals to tighten pores and support healthy cell renewal. If I don't like it, I will add it to my husbands stash :)

EXTRA:
There is also a £10.00 voucher for a Flavourly box, so you can get it for £9.99 instead of £19.99, but I won't be using it.


TOTAL VALUE OF MY BOX: £22.99

Overall, I am slightly disappointed with this box, simply because some of the products weren't as nice as I expected them to be. If the eye shadow palette and nail polish were more pigmented  I would be much happier with the selection. I saw the same box option with a nicer nail colour though, so it was just my bad luck.

PS. If you are a subscriber, you can simply skip a box, if you don't fancy any of the menus.

  2. Bit of a bummer, I agree. The value isn't amazing, either. The eyeshadow palette looked like it had such potential, as well!
