The Glamour Beauty Power List 2014 | Latest in Beauty

Beauty boxes seem to be everywhere at the moment, Look Fantastic recently released one, French company My Little Box is now available in the UK, the usual subscription boxes, limited edition Philip Kingsley boxes from You Beauty Discovery and Latest in Beauty's newest arrival.

I love a good Beauty box. I prefer to know what's inside though before purchasing, it offers a choice and a knowledge of whether we will enjoy the contents and saves the disappointment that an ok box can bring. Latest in Beauty are one off boxes so no subscription required and you can always see whats inside before making the purchase. They usually also carry plenty of stock so there are less disappointed beauty enthusiasts who didn't manage to snap one up in time.

If I could only choose one place to get my beauty box fix from it would no doubt be Latest in Beauty every time. The boxes they manage to drop on us at affordable prices and great value are second to none. Great brands and new releases are often featured in the boxes and great collaborations with the likes of Glamour and British Beauty Blogger mean that these are often untouchable and perfect every time.

The latest release is another Glamour box and yet another winner. With brands such as Laura Mercier and Philip Kingsley and with a range of products including cosmetics, haircare and skincare it's appealing to most.

The Glamour Beauty Power List 2014 contains:

Liz Earl Hot Cloth Cleanser & muslin cloth 30ml.
This is most definitely a well known and favourited product. I hear such fantastic things about this all the time and I'm really pleased to finally try this out. It's thoughtful that the muslin cloth is included and it's a really good trial sized product.

Eyeko Eye Makeup Remover Wipes 10 wipes.
Whilst this isn't the most exciting product included it's a nice extra and won't go wrong. I'm sure these will be used up at some point and they are nice to have on hand for convenience.

Philip Kingsley Daily Damage Defence 60ml.
I'm a big fan of Philip Kingsley's Elasticiser and I'm yet to anything else from the brand so this will be a great insight into some of the other products on offer. Another useful product and again a great sized sample. 

Laura Mercer Foundation Primer 30ml.
This is actually my third primer from Laura Mercier and I've received all of them in Beauty boxes previously. They seem to be a popular choice to include but I can see why. I love the primers and really like to have back up's so another is welcome in my collection. They do a great job with most foundations that I've paired them with and provide a smooth and fresh base for make up application.

James Reed Sleep Tan Mask 25ml.
I keep overlooking this one and if I'm honest I've already put it with the rest of my tan collection, probably not to be seen again until a special occasion. I said in a previous post that I'm not much of an all seasons tanner so not sure when I will get around to trying this. It's a great idea though but scares me slightly of what I may wake up looking like? ... moving on. 

Bourjois Volume 1 Second Mascara Full Sized.
I've noticed previously that Latest in Beauty like to add mascaras into their boxes and quite often they can be quite new releases. This is great for trying out newer products and weirdly shaped new wands that we wouldn't perhaps head straight towards in Boots or such places and as mascara doesn't have the longest usage life then these are useful for replacing what we should possibly have thrown away already.

Maybelline Stripped Nudes Lipstick Full Sized.
I seen this and thought straight away 'backup'. Nothing appealed to me to be honest. Just the fact it was a nude lipstick but the packaging was plain, we were offered an Illamasqua lipstick in a recent box and the fact it was Maybelline. Nothing against Maybelline lipsticks but often the better ones are usually from Bourjois or L'Oréal, in my opinion and I'd often overlook them. But I can now happily say that I was wrong. Totally wrong. The lipstick is flawless. It's great coverage with a beautiful finish and it has staying power. I love this and would repurchase tomorrow. It also smells divine!

Glamour Magazine Annual Digital Subscription.
I'm still unsure as to whether this costs anything or the subscription is free. I signed up and haven't had to pay anything for this month's issue but on the Latest in Beauty website it says that you receive an annual subscription discounted by 62%. That would have me thinking there is still a small fee to pay? As I said I'm not sure but still a great magazine and a welcome subscription that will help to pass away any free time nicely. 

Latest in Beauty's Glamour Beauty Power List 2014 can be found here for £15.99. 
There are a few discount codes that I know of at the moment, worth a try but can only be used once each per account. 10OFF for 10% off and 15OFF for 15% off.

What's your favourite box at the moment? Are you a Beauty box fan? If so are there any you would recommend?

Lots of Love
