Love Me Beauty Box November 2013




Love Me Beauty Box* - £10 + £2.95 Delivery

Love Me Beauty is the beauty box with a choice and that is the main reason why I think it is the best one out there. Every month subscribers are given a choice between three boxes so you know exactly what to expect when you receive your parcel. The main difference between the November boxes were the colours of the lip gloss & nail polish. For my November box I went with option three and here is what I received:

Mitchell & Peach Shower Wash
Personally I find Mitchell & Peach products to be a bit boring. I swear I've received loads of their samples in other beauty boxes & they're never anything to get excited about. Sure it's a nice moisturising shower gel with a lovely lavender scent but I definitely wouldn't pay £20 for a full size one.



Jelly Pong Pong 2-In-1 Bronze Shadow/Liner
I've heard so much about Jelly Pong Pong for years but I've never actually tried any of their products before. This pencil is an eye shadow & eyeliner in one product. I've been using this quite a lot lately because it's just so foolproof. It feels really creamy & applies easily without any dragging. It also has brilliant staying power. Here I've applied it all over my lids & under my waterline before blending it out with a MAC 217 & 219 brush. I've not experienced any creasing with this product even without wearing a primer. It really stays put! It can take a while to blend it all out so you do need to work quickly. I really like the bronze colour & I think it's a great everyday eye product. You could easily build this up for a night out too. I'm rather tempted to buy some more of these pencils in other colours.

Artdeco Hydra Lip Booster in Translucent Rose
I absolutely loved the Artdeco Eyeshadow Base I got in a previous Love Me Beauty box - it has fast become my favourite eye primer ever. So I was looking forward to trying another product from their range. This super shiny lip gloss has a light pink tint to it & feels very nice on the lips. It's quite moisturising & long-lasting for a lip gloss. The gloss features hyaluronic filling spheres to plump up your lips. It's not sticky either which is very important to me. I'm wearing it in the above photo & I think it looks really pretty.

Absolution Le Soin Purifiant
I was really impressed with this purifying face mask. It features birch sap & white clay to absorb impurities & tighten pores. Even though it is a clay mask it doesn't really dry on your face so it won't dehydrate your skin at all. It made my skin feel very tingly & minty fresh as it set on my face. After washing it off it left my skin looking clearer, brighter & more radiant. It also soothes the skin & reduces irritation. It really clears out my pores & gives me fresh, soft skin. Unfortunately I can't seem to find this brand in the UK but if they ever come across the pond I would be very interested in trying some more of their skincare products.



Model's Own Red Alert
If you saw my post about my nail polish collection you might have noticed that I have hardly any red polishes. Despite the mass of Model's Own ones I already own, I didn't have Red Alert so this classic bright red is a very welcome new addition. If Love Me Beauty didn't give us a choice of products I might've ended up with a colour I already owned so you can see why I like these boxes so much. You can't beat this colour if you're looking for a good old festive red.




Lord & Berry Intensity Lipstick in Brick Lip
There were a couple of issues with the Lord & Berry products in the October Love Me Beauty box so to make up for it they included an extra lipstick in the November box. It was incredibly nice of them to do that & I was surprised by how much I like this colour. If I was swatching this at a counter I would never have bought it myself but I actually think it suits me pretty well. It's a deep reddy brown shade & is ideal for a vampy A/W look. The formula is smooth, non-drying & long-lasting. It has great pigmentation too & was opaque in one swipe. A very high quality lipstick indeed & it more than makes up for the Lord & Berry products in the last box.

Apart from the shower gel I really liked every product in this box. I think everyone likes to receive makeup in sample boxes - especially when there's four full size items! I'll be using all of them for a long time. If the face mask was readily available in the UK I would probably end up buying a full size one of those too.
