August Love Me Beauty Box

 My August Love Me Beauty Box* (£10.00 +P&P) features four full size items and I am very pleased with most of them. I received three makeup products and an eye cream and I wanted to share my first impressions with you.

A LA CARTE Smudge-proof Eyebrow Definer In 'Blonde' RRP £23 
I really, really wish I was able to pick a shade of this brow pen, because I adore the formula and concept.  I am a brunette and my brows are almost black, so shade blonde isn't the best match :( I will still use it and follow with a darker powder, but I wish it was a darker colour. I can use it as an eyeliner too.

MIRABELLA Lip Luster Liner In 'Bashful' RRP £10.50 
This shade is a great match for my Lancome Lipstick in shade 312 so I will get a lot of use out of it. The formula is creamy and long lasting. I actually have a blush/highlighter from Mirabella as well and I love it.

MARSK Mineral Eye Shadow In 'You're Toast' RRP £14.49 
I am not crazy about loose mineral eyeshadows, simply because they are quite messy. I think I might press this one into a pan though, because the shade is stunning and can be even more intense if applied wet!

ORIFLAME Ecollogen Wrinkle Correcting Eye Cream RRP £16.95 
I am a big fan of eye creams in a rollerball format and this one is perfect for everyday use. It's lightweight, non greasy and helps to reduce puffiness, especially if I keep it in the fridge overnight.

Overall, if I was blonde, the box would have been absolutely perfect. I am happy with it anyway and I can use the brow ink as a liner, but it would be good to be able to choose the right shade, as it is quite a personal thing and not everyone has the same brow colour.
