Its time for our monthly dose of Love Me Beauty excitement, the beauty box storming the market due to the unique option of choosing from three different menus. June marks their first birthday, with an exciting contents featuring four full size products out of the five along with another little extra. I eventually decided on menu one which turned out to contain quite a few gems! I'd love to hear if you've subscribed to Love Me Beauty recently, which menu did you go for?

Model Co - Shine Ultra Lip Gloss in Fairy Floss - RRP £12
Having only tested a Model Co Mascara previously I was intrigued to try their lip glosses. I'm not overly into my glosses, though when summer hits they're definitely pulled out of my collection. Their Shine Ultra Lip Glosses aren't overly sticky, are long lasting and pack a fair bit of colour to the lip. Fairy Floss has been reached for every day and reapplied throughout the day due to the packaging hosting a small mirror. Despite this pink gloss carrying a subtle lilac shimmer it's been pairing beautifully over Julianne's Nude by L'oreal. I'll certainly look into purchasing more from the brand.

NYX Cosmetics - Nail Polish in Winter - RRP £3 - Next
Menu one features various 'pink' shades from NYX Cosmetics Advanced Salon Formula line. I've tried a few products from NYX and so far I can't fault them. I'm sure you'll agree that a polish named 'winter' isn't all that fitting when we're entering summer. This being said the shade itself being a peachy, pink shimmer will work over most polishes whether on all nails or just an accent.

Montagne Jeunesse - Brazilian Mud Fabric Masque - RRP £1
I seem to be going through a bad patch with my skin at the moment, I'm getting more breakouts than I would usually and my skins so dry. I wouldn't go as far to say I've switched skin types to combinations, my breakouts seem to be more hormonal. Glad to see a face masque from one of my old favourite brands I couldn't wait to apply it. Fabric masques are so convenient, they require less time and don't crumble off when it comes to removing them. Brazilian Mud Fabric has specially sourced clays infused into the bamboo fabric, deep cleansing and refreshing your skin - everything I needed, heck I even felt confident to go makeup-less the next day.

Beauty UK - Eye Shadow Palette in Earth Child - RRP £3.99 - Superdrug
I've used Beauty UK products in the past and find the brand to be a hit or miss. This palette is exactly that, not all the shades are great. A few shades have quite a chalky formula, though some do pack a lot of pigment. For £3.99 I wouldn't have expected much if it wasn't for other budget brands launching and upping the game. The packaging is pretty naff, it wouldn't last long in your makeup bag and the mirror under the applicator is useless. The shadows aren't terrible, I'm just too used and loyal to my long time lover Urban Decay.

Urban Veda - Purifying Day Cream 10ml - RRP £14.99
The only sample in the box turned out to be a great addition to the selection. As mentioned I've experienced a fair amount of breakouts, with this moisturiser aimed at oil prone skin. This light formula contains cold-pressed neem oil, healing witch hazel and refreshing spearmint to tighten pores and support healthy cell renewal. My tiny tube is still going and I'm considering the full size due to the minty fragrance and refreshing tingle.

  1. I really like the look of the lipgloss and polish! Shame about the eyeshadows as the shades are pretty, I've seen quite a few other bloggers aren't too impressed with them either.

    1. With MUA and Makeup Rev we now expect a lot for the cheaper brands don't we, it's a shame not all the shades were as good as the golden tones are! xx

  3. I picked box number two and this box will be my first one. I was thinking about doing a blog post about it when I get it. I really like the pictures that you took of the box, which led me to think about what camera you use.

    1. Hey Caitlin, thank you so much!! I've written a whole post about my camera here; http://lucyywrites01.blogspot.co.uk/2012/10/how-to-blog-photos.html - I feel like I've learnt more since writing this post too.

  4. This is a really well detailed review. I was going to subscribe to Birchbox but found more boxes that have full sized products as well as some samples. I had just paid to three months of Love Me Beauty just to trial it. I picked the second box as I already have the eye shadow pallet from box number one. I also prefer seaweed face masks too. When my box arrives I think I will probably write a review on my blog because I haven't written a blog post in a long time. xxx

  5. I got the same box as you, even down to the oddly named shade of polish! I was ok but I've had much better boxes from Love Me Beauty so I think I'll be taking a rain check on my subscription and will wait and see what July's boxes look like before I commit again.

    Great review! You can read mine over at http://lovesandloathes.wordpress.com

    1. I'll agree it's not one of the best boxes, I think my favourite was my very first with Neal & Wolf Full Size products in! At least the service allows the option to skip menus each month. Fingers crossed July's box is amazing :) xx
